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! ;)

Dominique came highly recommended by a mutual friend. I was looking for someone to photograph our small beach wedding. It was difficult to find a photographer who would photograph a small wedding without charging BIG wedding prices. I guess most people hear "wedding" and they assume a full day of shooting. We just wanted a photographer for a couple of hours since we weren't having a large wedding or reception. Dominique was very professional and worked with our budget. In the end we came to an agreement which seemed fair. My fiance and I met with Dominique and his partner to look at his work and to get acquainted. At that time we gave him our deposit and filled out the contract. I felt very comfortable with them, I knew then that the day of would be just fine. We made sure to keep contact before and the day of the wedding. He contacted me the day of to touch base. It was kind if a blur that day but things turned out perfect. 2 hours does go by fast. In retrospect, I wish I would have hired him for at least 1 more hour because I would have loved to take more photos with our kids. After all the family photos, my husband and I took off with the photographers to take the bride and groom pics. Everything flowed naturally, I felt very comfortable and we had a blast shooting. I even got my wedding dress wet which actually made for some fabulous photos. The end results were as expected. Beautiful photos of a sunset beach wedding. Thank you so much for capturing our special day! We will definitely use you guys in the future and recommend to friends.

From my first inquiry about the project to delivering our finished photos, I found Jessica to be a true first-class professional. Even my skeptical husband (who didn't think we needed professional photographers for a family shoot) was blown away with the photos and my entire family of 5 truly feel that we hit the "photographer jackpot" when we found Jessica and Bobby. Thank you for listening to our needs and for making us feel very comfortable during the shoots at Sunset Cliffs. My children loved the time you both spent with them and how you added some special creative magic to make some playful pictures for us. We really appreciate how you were also so responsive after the shoot, and for delivering our photos within a 3 day turnaround. We are definitely enjoying digitally viewing our family and individual photos now, but the hard part is selecting which photos of the many we all love to be "printed or framed." Bottom line, we are confident Jessica and Bobby will also exceed your expectations like they did ours. Your overall experience will be nothing short of remarkable.

Pavol is a lifesaver! I need an event photographer last minute (like within 3 hours of posting on here) and Pavol was not only quick in response but was onsite with me walking the property within 2 hours. He was polite, professional, and very accommodating to our photography needs. I would give him my highest recommendation for your events! I look forward to using his work in my upcoming publications and on social media. Thank you Pavol and well done! I look forward to working with you again on any future San Diego projects!

My fiance and I hired Chasing Light to do our photo and video for our wedding. Their pricing was perfect for what we were looking for and we were very excited to be getting both photo and video by the same team. We recently had our engagement photos and cannot begin to explain how happy we are to have chosen them. Our photographer, Russ, was very flexible with the date and even helped us find the perfect location. He definitely listened to what we had in mind and was even ok with my fiance wearing his sunglasses for some of the shots. Russ was very easy to work with and had 2 preview images back to me within the next hour! On top of that, he had the rest of our images ready the next day and they are everything we hoped for and more! I have friends who had to wait weeks to get their engagement photos back. Needless to say, we are obsessed with our engagement photos and CANNOT wait to see how our wedding photos and video turn out.

Outstanding, absolutely phenomenal photography! Sasha & Yanek photographed my engagement session and wedding and the photos well exceeded my expectations. They make you feel so comfortable with them that you're so naturally relaxed and look amazing in your photos. I had the opportunity to work with Magdalena for a boudoir session before the wedding and she was amazing too! You don't get better than Wasio when it comes to photography. I will forever use them for my formal photo sessions. I love these guys! I am so honored to have had them as my photographers last year.

Dan did a great job at our small informal celebration despite the challenging sunset lighting on a patio overlooking the water. He brought fill-in lights that were unobtrusive and arrived early enough to do all of his test shots before guests arrived. He communicated clearly before the event and was responsive to requests during the event. The photos were on the website within 4 days and look great. I would use him again.

If you are looking for photographers look no further! Dia and her husband are true professionals who created wonderful memories for us. They braved the rain for our wedding day, all while still taking truly wonderful photos. They made every effort to please our timeframe and we couldn’t have asked for more. When we head back to Huntington Beach for more photos we now have found our photographers. Thank you guys once again

TALENTED, REASONABLE AND DEPENDABLE PHOTOGRAPHER We eloped to Imperial Beach (San Diego) and wanted a photographer for our small ceremony. Some who replied wouldn’t even come without guests or had to be a two hour minimum and MOST others were “off the charts” expensive. Gee, I only wanted some shots of our ceremony and of us together afterward, less than an hour. Enter Harp from Best San Diego Photographers! Harp replied quickly to my Thumbtack inquiry, answering my questions and giving me a “real” price; not a bait and switch, plus we received a video of our ceremony as well, which is a priceless addition! Harp followed up with a phone call and I found him to be professional, but yet friendly and warm, and most importantly, he understood what we wanted. Harp consistently touched based with us and answered any further questions that popped up, so I never felt like he “took the deposit and ran”. He arrived 30 minutes early, which honestly was a relief because choosing someone in another city is always a bit scary with all the scams going on. Harp was just as friendly in person – even more so. My husband and I felt comfortable immediately. Harp not only took the photos he wanted from his professional eye, but he stopped to ask us what we wanted and didn’t leave without asking if there were any other shots we’d like. He even left us with an adorable rap song of congratulations, but unfortunately, I couldn’t talk him into adding that to our video  The delivery of our photos was extremely prompt, and again, he responded immediately (and more than once) when this blond couldn’t find something on our portrait gallery. Quality, professional, friendly and dependable are but a few words to describe Harp. Thanks for making our day less stressful with forever memories! Harp, you rock (and rap)! 

I hired Puneet to do a shoot for my business. He was very responsive, professional and artistic. It was so fun working with him and seeing the different ways he was highlighting my products. When I received my online gallery, I was in love. I couldn’t believe how amazing the photos turned out.. and with such quick turn around. I will definitely be hiring him again with my next batch of products.
