Garret Torres Photography

I'm Garret, and I want to help tell your story. It wasn't until college that I was even interested in photography, but since then it's been my biggest passion. Since my first photo class, I've been hooked. I found myself bringing my camera everywhere, but I wanted to do more. I started working with a professional wedding photographer and discovered that I loved the chaos, emotions, and opportunities that a wedding day presents. That was probably one of the best decisions I've ever made. Hundreds of weddings later, I'm still enjoying what I do as much as I did when I first started, perhaps even more. Knowing that I can provide people with daily reminders of the happiest day of their lives truly makes me love what I do.

I’m not just a wedding photographer; I’m a storyteller, an adventurer, a father, a husband, a son, a brother, and a friend. I love the relationships I have, and I’m sure you love yours, too. The most important thing for me as your wedding photographer is to capture those relationships as genuinely and beautifully as possible. I strive to create photos that remind you why you love the people you love. It's just as important for me to make these photos as it is to create a physical heirloom for you to relive these moments, and that's why every wedding package I offer includes an album!

How I cater to Offbeat Brides

I want your photos to be something that you are dying to show off. I want to help you get through your busy wedding day feeling like you have nothing to worry about (besides maybe the drunk groomsman who is nowhere to be found.) I love weddings that reflect the bride and groom's true personalities. It's your day, you should be able to set your own standards. The more unique the wedding, the better!

"They say a picture is worth a thousand words, but in reality, you're more likely to find that Garret's photos will render you speechless. We chose Garret to be our photographer for our Oct. 2016 wedding and to say that we were satisfied with his work would be a complete understatement. His ability to capture the most meaningful moments from our special day – while remaining entirely unobtrusive – was incredible. There were even some photos that we had no idea he took; from the moment when I was putting on my great grandmother's pearls (my "something borrowed" item which was very near & dear to me) to my parents holding hands during our ceremony. He truly has a gift, and some of his photos honestly took our breath away. The memories Garret captured for us have allowed us to enjoy our wedding day in more ways than we could have imagined, and we will continue to cherish them for years to come. And while his work speaks for itself, I can also assure you that he is a great guy to work with all-around, too. He's very responsive, puts everyone at ease with his relaxed, friendly demeanor, and is totally professional. I recommend choosing Garret if you want a creative photographer who will give you high-quality, stunning photos, but beyond that, you'll also find that your entire experience working with him will exceed expectations as well. –Jessica L.

"I cannot stress how easy Garret made everything for us. When my husband and I first got engaged, Garret was one of our top choices. After meeting with him in person, it was a no-brainer. We loved his portfolio, he answered every concern with professionalism, and his price was in the budget for us. We booked both our engagement session and wedding with him and there hasn't been a single ounce of regret. Our photos came back stunning and it's a pleasure telling people who our photographer was.
Garret is up for any challenge or suggestion, reliable, and talented. I never expected my photographer to goes as far above and beyond as he did for us. We can't thank you enough, Garret!" – Heather W.

Examples of my work

  • One of my favorite Offbeat weddings was Jennifer and Paul's. When groom prep happens at the gym, and the bride stops at a pub before getting to her venue, you know you're in for a good one.
  • Another Offbeat couple who I had the honor of working with was Ro and Garrett. Their wedding was so relaxed and so true to who they were, and those things lent themselves to quite an amazing day that yielded some of my favorite photos.
  • I'd love to post a billion photos on here, but that wouldn't be very nice to the lovely servers at Offbeat Bride, so check out my best of 2018 here!
