    Five stars!!
    Quality, friendliness, and creativeness is all five stars for Samuel Rivera Photography! I loved my experience with Brianna, Bethany, and Sam. All three make one perfect trio. Bethany so amazing and helpful with suggestions and poses! Brianna such an amazing hair/makeup artist! Lastly, Sam is so amazing behind the camera catching beautiful shots! I told them what I wanted, and not only did they deliver, but they exceeded. Thank you to all three of you guys. I'm more then positive my fiancé will fall in love with his surprise as much as I have with these pictures. Will be seeing you in the future for more! (:

    Amazing!!!!
    If aanyone is looking for a photography team made of nothing but perfection, look no further. Sam, Bethany and Brianna are absolutely incredible. There is literally not enough good things I could say about them. I fell in love with my photos and fell in love with my photoshoot experience. When I initially scheduled my boudoir photoshoot there was no way I could have imagined how amazing everything would have turned out. From communication to experience, professionalism, quality and likability they get a 5 star rating from me

    An empowering experience!
    On Tuesday, November 29th I sat for a Boudoir Shoot with Signature Beauty Gallery. Bethany, Sam and Briana provided such an excellent experience that by the time it was over, I felt like I could take on the world. I would highly recommend using this studio if you are looking for a professional team who is passionate, encouraging, flexible and fun! I had been racking my brain on what to get my husband for Christmas and kept toying with the idea of a Boudoir Shoot. I used Thumbtack to find some vendors for our wedding so figured that would be a good place to start. Within an hour I heard back from Bethany introducing herself and her husband, Sam; both are photographers. As Boudoir Photography is a truly intimate experience, I wanted to find a studio I could trust and feel safe. Bethany and I immediately scheduled a call for that same week to discuss my expectations. During that call, I felt confident and booked with them. If you book with Signature Beauty Gallery, Bethany provides an hour long face time consultation before your shoot. This was awesome as she answered all my questions, allayed concerns about my ‘’problem areas’ and clarified what I was looking for. When I arrived on Tuesday, full of butterflies, I immediately felt at ease. Their studio is clean, spacious, and they had my favorite cookies ready for me! I then met Briana, one of their MUAs, and was transformed into a veritable goddess. The entire time, the four of us fell into easy conversation and laughter. I felt welcomed and cared for. The shoot itself was where the real fun began. With Bethany as my pose coach, Sam behind the camera, Briana catching any stray hairs, and Beyoncé blaring, I was unstoppable. All three made me feel beautiful as we tried multiple outfits, poses and props. They really pushed me to stretch my comfort level and I am so glad I did. Bethany had preselected poses based on my own research but they also let me have fun and free style now and then. Ladies, I would recommend at least once in your life, experiencing a truly professional Boudoir Shoot. It was one of the most fun things I have ever done just for myself. While I went into this looking for a gift for my husband, I was the real recipient. I felt strong, sexy and self-confident (even with my ‘flaws’). Like most photography, it is a true investment and one worth investing with Signature Beauty. I highly recommend them and am eager to see my prints today! Keep your fingers crossed.

    Amazing experience! Thanks Sam & Bethany!
    When I found out I was going to be in the area I knew I would want to have Sam and Bethany take my maternity portraits. What a great decision! They make a great team. Very professional, comforting, & they did an AMAZINGLY job! We went to 3 different locations, 2 days of shooting, and many many photos! They took their time with me and made sure I had a good selection. I did indeed!... It was extremely hard to narrow down my selection. They were all so beautiful. This sure was a treat. Sam & Bethany had a nice selection for me to wear and allowed me to bring what I liked from home.... Lots of snacks and drinks, which this pregnant mommy was happy about ;) and someone to professional do my hair and makeup which was much appreciated. Since I was traveling I was pressed for time. Sam worked extra hard and had my photos ready in time to arrive at my baby shower!!! Everyone was so impressed! This was a great experience and I will use them again in the future. I've already recommended them to several friends!!!! Thanks guys!

    Bethany and Samuel were great, along with both the hair and makeup artists. I did boudoir and I'm am the kind of person who's uncomfortable in shorts and hate being in front of a camera, but they made me feel A LOT more at ease. When I got to see the final pictures, I couldn't believe it was me! I had trouble picking the ones that I wanted keep! I would definitely recommend them if you are as selg conscious as I am.

    LONG STORY SHORT - LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM!!!! I contacted Signature Beauty Gallery about 4-5 weeks prior to my wedding. I had been debating as to whether or not I wanted to do a glamour shoot for my fiancé as his wedding present.. Of course last minute I decided that I did. Within a couple hours of emailing my inquiry, Bethany called me to introduce herself. I knew instantly she was a sweet, encouraging, and hard-working woman. The quick response & phone call was a great first impression! After our discussion, I received a follow up email with details about what to expect, pricing, etc. She worked with me to fit me in on VERY short notice which also required coordinating someone to be available to do my hair and makeup. I walked into the studio very anxious - excited but also nervous and self-conscious. I was greeted with warm smiles AND snacks and wine options!! My hair and makeup turned out SO good! I showed them the outfits I brought and Bethany also showed me options she had for me to accessorize with. We picked a first outfit and got to work. I'm not necessarily shy, but doing this requires a different type of confidence and I was SCARED! Both Bethany and Sam did every thing possible to make me feel comfortable and beautiful. They coached me through every movement, outfit, position, and hair flip. I had an absolute BLAST shooting with them!! Within 2 weeks of my shoot, they had my photos ready for my viewing appointment ---- INCREDIBLE! Again, I walked in to smiles, hugs, and genuine excitement from them both. We spent some time going over the photos and my options, and I left with an amazing gift, new friends, and a new found confidence. Not only are Bethany and Sam insanely talented, but they are honest, kind, encouraging people. They inspired me as a couple and as human beings!!!! I can't say how highly I think of them, and I'm not too easily impressed... 100% recommend for wedding/glamour photography. I also saw some pretty "artsy" photos they had done while I was in their studio and they were equally as awesome. If you are considering Signature Beauty Gallery - DO NOT HESITATE, YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!!!!!

    My experience was absolutely fun and comfortable! I decided to do the boudoir photoshoot. Everyone did a fantastic job with helping me get comfortable in lingerie. I was able to view the final photos in about a week, which was quick and I was very shocked at how amazing they turned out. I will be coming back and I do recommend choosing Signature Beauty for your next photoshoot :)
  • Isabella P. Feb 25, 2016
    Sam and Bethany are a great team when it came to my photos. I felt so comfortable and was provide with the most amazing look. I am so glad I was able to fund them both. They do amazing art and can't wait to share my photos!

    If you are looking for extra-ordinary and beautiful shots then Sam Rivera is the man. He has an eye for details and bring the best out in every shot. Sam and his staff are very personable and his studio is impressive. Go give him a call you will love the experience.
  • Rosana Ferri F. Feb 16, 2016
    If there was 10 stars I would give it. I had the most amazing experience with my Signature Beauty session. Samuel & his lovely wife Bethany were very professional, artistic, creative, and genuine. They made me feel and look like a million bucks. I'm in the fashion industry and am constantly around super models. It was nice to be the model for once. My photos where not just a portrait of me it was a story . A beautiful story that made the portraits into a piece of art. I can't wait to have another session. Thank you Samuel Rivera! You are  truly the best photographer I know. I am referring you to all my friends and family. :)

    Sam is definitely a one of a kind photographer. Not only does he make you feel very comfortable, he also goes above and beyond to capture the perfect shot. His work is seamless, beautiful, and speedy fast! He and I worked together for a bikini shoot for my company. He hauled all of his gear down the hill and to the sand (all by himself!), set everything up in minutes, and had shot me for 3 hours to fit in about 4 or 5 looks during the beautiful sunset. He brought down his studio lighting and even thought of bringing a portable changing station for me so I wasn't flashing anyone at the beach (these things were not little)!! We went all over Little Corona Del Mar and did some videography and still shots. He was open to my suggestions and never took me out of my comfort zone. He even came in the water with me to take some surfing shots!! In the end, he provided me with a beautiful 2 minute video highlighting my new suits, a 15 second instagram video, and stunning still shots that made me look like a goddess!! And to top it off, he delivered all of these things in TWO DAYS!!!! That was incredible to me. Other photographers I have worked with take weeks to produce the final product. Overall, I am so pleased with everything he has done! He worked so hard and made me feel like a best friend throughout the entire process. I will definitely continue to use Signature Beauty Gallery in the future. I highly recommend him for any future photoshoots!

    I booked Sam and Bethany at Signature Beauty Gallery for my Boudoir session and it was a great experience. I was definitely nervous at first as I've never done a shoot like this before but after arriving to the studio they made me feel very comfortable! They had champagne and treats available while I was getting my hair and make up done, we finalized my outfits and started shooting, it didn't take long to tap into my inner model. Honestly, I couldn't have been happier with everything!! You have to give them a call and meet with Bethany and Sam, you will not regret it.

    Thank you Paige for sharing your experience with us. We're so happy that you enjoyed working with our studio. -Sam & Bethany

Also, check out their reviews, wether through Facebook, Yelp, etc, This way if you have any reservation you have an opportunity to see what past customers have experiences.

What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
You should check out the photographers portfolio and galleries and think about the styles and images your are most drawn to so that we can help identify your individual style.
