Client Testimonials


Just a few thoughts on Golden Photography... Service: We had nothing but an extremely positive experience with Golden Photography. Rhonda went above and beyond to accommodate my husband and me before, during and after our wedding. She kept in constant contact with us and is still available (a year after our wedding) anytime I have any questions or need something. Our photos were beautiful and our album is truly what wedding albums should be- something we will cherish for the rest of our lives.

QUALITY: Rhonda is a master at her art- our photos are amazing!

VALUE: As any bride or groom will attest to, wedding photography is soooo expensive, but yet we still find ourselves paying whatever price we are quoted because we want the memories. Golden Photography is definitely the best deal in the East Bay, especially for professional photography.

As a side note, a year later, Danny and I really appreciate everything you did for us and thank you from the bottom of our hearts! You are the best!

I am a wedding planner and I work with many vendors but working with Golden Photographer was great. Rhonda makes everyone feel relaxed and comfortable and it turn that’s what you need in order to relieve tension and nervousness in a wedding. She took fabulous photos and not only pleased my clients but impressed me with her work and performance. I look forward to working with Golden Photography again.

I chose Golden Photography for my wedding after Rhonda had shot some professional photos for my soon to be mother-in-law. Her pictures were phenomenal and I had every confidence mine would be too. Not only did Rhonda do a fantastic job in catching every memorable moment, but she also helped out when my 'planner' was nowhere to be found; She advised me when it was time to cut the cake, as well as the bouquet and garter toss. Rhonda also gave a few pointers to a friend of mine who had volunteered to video-tape the event for us. I'm positive my wedding went a lot smoother with Golden Photography as opposed to a photographer who was there to just take pictures. Aside from the event, Golden Photography holds true to fantastic business ethics. Communication is key during planning, and all of my calls or e-mails were answered almost immediately. Rhonda made sure I got exactly what I wanted, which is what all brides deserve. I would highly recommend Rhonda and the Golden Photography team for any special event or portrait session. Thanks Rhonda!!

Golden Photography is wonderful and extremely helpful. Rhonda Nelson catered to all of our photo needs, she introduced herself to us at a Bridal Fair and we were hooked at first sight. Her professionalism as well as her ability to relax and treat us like a friend and not just a client; helped make my wife and I realize what a great choice in a photographer we had made. Rhonda was very helpful throughout the process moving towards the wedding, and completely stuck with our schedule and needs. She made us feel special, and insured us that things were going to work out great, with our wedding day.

On the day of our wedding Rhonda did something truly special for me (Jason) she made it possible to see my then future bride getting ready, something that I would have not seen without her. I was able to feel like I was there sitting next to Jessica. The photos turned out amazing. Rhonda is great and we would recommend her to anyone who asked!

Thanks Rhonda for making the journey to our day, and Our Day… Truly memorable!
