I'll start off by saying that I do my research, so when I decided to look for a photographer to take some much overdue headshots, it was no different. I checked out the portfolios of many photographers and selected Adam Southhard of Best LA Headshots. I am very happy with the pictures he took and the experience that I had. Adam Southard is a very talented photographer; very professional, patient and timely. My research paid off. 5 Stars - I highly recommend Best LA Headshots.

Brad was fantastic! When he arrived at our location, he quickly scanned the scenery, and within seconds was able to determine the most beautiful spots to shoot. He picked several places based on existing architecture, landscape and foliage. His vision was amazing! A true photographer. I was worried about all the people in the area, but he knew how to set up the shots so it looked like we were the only ones there. He was also able to direct us into poses that may have felt unnatural, but translate wonderfully to the finished photo. The results were beautiful! I'm always concerned about color and lighting - I see so many photographers get it wrong, but our photos are truly professional quality. If you want someone who strikes a nice balance between efficiency, artistry, and reasonable pricing (and who doesn't?) then I highly recommend Brad!

Ivan did an incredible job as the photographer for my graduation party. He was professional, polite, and nice throughout the event. He shot a lot of great pictures for my family and I, and edited all of them. I'm so thankful for his work, and would definitely hire him again for any future events!

Marc is professional, has extreme patience and is very maticulous about every shot, he truly cares about the outcome of every single photo taken. He is an all around great guy and I highly recommend him for all your photography needs. I will continue to use him for my modeling and portrait photographs. Thank you Marc!

Nona is hands down one of the best photographers our family has ever worked with! Very professional and extremely good at what she does. We had to reschedule d/t the bipolar Houston weather and she worked well (and FAST) to get everything done, EVEN had a few pics ready in less than 24hrs!! I only wish we could've gotten the remaining photos a little sooner as a small project I was working on was delayed (and so many were so good!). To be fair, she delivered on her original ETA AND photos were done just before the holidays, so we know she was very busy. I would absolutely recommend her to everyone I know, our pictures have gotten rave reviews from family and friends!

I was asked by a university to have my pictures taken professionally for an article that is going to be published. Fortunately, I didn't have a lot of time to think about it, because I was becoming quite nervous. Kelli arrived with all of her equipment. She suggested I pull out a few accessories from my closet. I had a couple of clothing ideas in mind. She recommended I add some scarves and jackets that were added to compliment what I chose. She helped me relax, knew just what would look good inside the house and outdoors. She has an eye for backgrounds, lighting, and an exuberance comes out that makes the subject have fun and really enjoy the experience. I loved that she would show me some of the shots as we went along, and I loved the ability to veto pictures taken so the publisher couldn't choose them. If you need professional pictures,she is the photographer to call! Thank you, Kelli!

Sheryl was the photographer at our wedding, and I cannot say enough about the amazing job she did. Everything from her communication to her professionalism was outstanding. She made everyone at the wedding feel comfortable and at ease. I was so impressed with the little things she did like making sure my dad has his boutonniere on before the ceremony and capturing the moments that I would never have thought of. Above all if you want a photographer to be creative and use her artistic skills to create breathtaking results, then Sheryl is the one!

Danielle was an amazing photographer. She was not only my photographer, but my friend. She was a great listener, and helped me to calm down when I was having "those bridal moments." Her pictures are beautiful, and she did an amazing job capturing mine and my husbands love. I would give her more stars if I could. I would recommend anyone shopping around for a photographer. Choose Danielle. Meet with her, and you'll immediately see why she is so fantastic. ❤️ Danielle, you're the best! Be my photographer when we get pregnant! ;)

Susan is an amazing photographer.  The pictures look like they belong in the hospitals (labor and delivery wing) and in magazines. I was so happy when she took time with the baby and didn't rush. She was so loving and understanding and we even stopped between the shoot to feed baby. When baby was crying, she encouraged me to stop and pick her up to calm her and then we would start again whereas at other studios I felt rushed and like I was inconveniencing them. She has an amazing imagination and she was relentless to find the perfect shot for the baby. When the baby was too fussy she figured out a way to take the shots of her ON ME!! You can't even tell I was holding her. In my opinion, that is truly amazing! You could really tell this is a talent and true passion of Susan's. The pictures came out so amazing and I would definetly use her again for any of our photographic needs.

Dino did some portrait photos for me to use for my office's website, and he worked magic with what is usually a not so photogenic subject. He knew how to bring the best out in me while all the while being laid back, genuine and professional. I highly recommend his services. You will come away with a good experience and great photos.

Jordan made everything so easy. For my portrait shoot he was perfectly punctual and came with a vision so the whole shoot went very smoothly. Even though it rained on the day we were shooting he improvised with some crafty umbrella work and was able to produce some great shots regardless. He also turned everything around way earlier than I expected, which was an added bonus and I supremely appreciate. Would definitely recommend.

I am a professional model and have worked with many professional photographers over the years. Juliet Peel is an AMAZING photographer with an OUTSTANDING assistant Freddy! I shot for 4 hours with them at Laguna Beach, the location Juliet suggested, which was PERFECT! I received over 500 digital photos on disk. The photography is so GOOD I am having great trouble deciding which ones to use! Juliet and Freddy are totally professional, courteous, punctual and friendly! I felt very comfortable and they are a pleasure to work with. Her fees are extremely reasonable and much less than many other professional photographers. The quality of her work exceeded my expectations. What an UNBELIEVABLE value! I give Juliet Peel Photography the highest possible recommendation and I will be working with her again! Thank you Juliet and Freddy! You ROCK! -MRL

I would highly recommend Stephen as a photographer for any event. He was extremely timely. Stephen was there 15 minutes ahead of time and provided pictures to us within 24 hours. I also felt his prices were very reasonable for the quality of the product. Thank you Stephen for capturing the memories of my mom's 60th birthday.

Hollie makes you feel comfortable in your element and knows how to guide you in the right direction to get the exact look that you want. Unlike most photographers she takes the time to connect with you to get a better understanding of what you want. By far, the best photography I've ever worked with.
