We hired Alan to take a family portrait for our mothers 80th birthday. It was a special day. We are a large family (30+) from 6 months to 80!! When we arrived at the location Alan was already there getting things ready for us. He was so patient with us and so very professional. He took his time to make sure that he got lots of different group shots with the different families. When he delivered the finished product I was totally amazed. My mother was so happy when we presented it to her. He really made her 80th Birthday a day she will never forget. Thanks Alan!!

I'm writing this review to commend Danielle Penn on a outstanding job well done. I recently utilized Danielle's services for my family portraits. Danielle showed up on time and just delivered it! I was so impressed by her amazing work and how she works well with natural light to produce the exact pictures I was envisioning. They came out perfectly. I'm amazed at her ability to capture the moment and her uncanny eye for detail. This young lady is truly a artist and I look forward to using her for any and all photography needs I highly recommend her to anyone. Real pro 5 stars!!! Thank you so much Danielle.

I personally used Kenny Goldberg Photography for my daughters High School Senior photo. This was shot on location at Aliso Beach, CA. We spent a good three hours with a few clothing changes. The final product was absolutely beautiful. My daughter used her favorite photo for her facebook page and High School Graduation Announcement. I used Kenny Goldberg Photography for my Professional Linkedin photo, as well, and am very happy with it.

Tricia is an artist when it comes to her photography. I wanted to surprise my husband with a personal birthday present. I hired Tricia for a boudoir session based on a friends recommendation. The session was amazing, Tricia made me feel so comfortable and the photos were beautiful and my husband was more than happy!! Based on my wonderful experience with Tricia I hired her again to shoot our family ( there was 15 of us) from the ages of 78 to 7 months! Tricia was so great with everyone and she captured unique personalities of our family during the session! We had a great time with Tricia and have memories that we will all cherish! I have referred my friends to Tricia and they were thrilled with their experience as well! I recommend Equinox Photo and Tricia for her artistic ability, passion, professionalism and vision!

It was a great pleasure working with WASIO Photography. Yaneck and Sasha were very proactive about researching the location of our session, gave us directions and were very prompt about answering our questions. Yaneck and Sasha have awesome energy and are fun to work with. They made us feel relaxed in front of the camera and we had a great time being photographed. They give plenty of direction and advice on posing, which we really appreciated as we felt a bit awkward in front of the camera. Yaneck’s artistic style and keen eye for detail, as well as overall composition come through in beautiful photographs we will cherish for years to come. We would definitely recommend WASIO Photography!

Debora did an awesome job with our family portraits. We were visiting San Diego for vacation, so I decided to use Thumbtack to find a photographer. I couldn't be happier. Debora arrived on time, and was extremely patient with our impatient 3 year old. During the shoot, I thought for sure she was having a tough time with us. I was wrong. She hand delivered the photos on a cd later that week. They are all tremendous! Don't hesitate to give Debora a shot. She won't disappoint.

Dan was great!! He photographed my daughters birthday party and got so many great shots!! I decided at the last minute that I had wanted to hire someone and so glad that I did and it was Dan! He did a great job of capturing candid along with portrait shots. With all the pictures that he took the day of the party he got everything sorted through and edited super fast! I will definitely be calling Dan when I need a photographer again!!

Christina & Jake made this year's family photo session a wonderful, hassle free experience -- which can be challenging when a 5 year boy is involved! We don't live in California, so I was initially stressed about the time involved to research photographers & their styles in addition to a location that would be unique. From the initial request for info all the way through receiving the portrait package -- they were extremely responsive, amazing & were very thoughtful in their location recommendations based on what I was looking for (even though I didn't really know what I was looking for). In person, they immediately made us all feel at ease and made it a fun experience. The pictures turned out AMAZING ...and they sent them to me the next night -- UNBELIEVABLE turnaround time! I would highly recommend them; in fact I have already told my friends who live in the SD area about them. We would definitely use them again!!!!

Verified review

I have been a client of Joni’s twice! The first time she did our family portraits at Balboa Park and with my then two-year-old son running around and not sitting still (once), she was able to capture many smiling portraits and adorable candids. She was not afraid to get on the floor and in tight spaces to ensure she got great photos of my little one! Second time she did solo photos of my son in and around our home. Joni is very accommodating and has lots of patience when it comes to photographing little ones. She’s also got experience on how to get them to interact with her so they are always looking at the camera! She even was kind enough to take portraits of our Australian cattle mix dog and chihuahua! The dog portraits came out great. Joni is always there to make her clients feel important and she ensures the work is of the highest quality.

Scott has done numerous photo shoots for me of my artwork and also portrait work/headshots for promotional purposes. The quality of his work is always amazing and he's very reasonably priced. At request, he provided multiple file formats and sizes. He also shot a top-notch promotional video about me and my artwork - filmed, edited, transitions, music, the whole deal. It is amazing in terms of technical quality and editorial content. I can't recommend him highly enough!

We hired Jimmy Wu of Jimmy Wu Photography for the Grand Opening of our social enterprise coffee businesses. We had many attractions and entertainment that day and over 300 attendees. Jimmy was able to capture candid moments of customers enjoying themselves, our artists and musicians performing, as well as product photos for future use. Jimmy was punctual, extremely professional and delivered the final product promptly. We will definitely hire him again for our future events!

"The photographs turned out absolutely beautiful! Having you take the photographs was one of the best decisions we have ever made. I can't express enough how you captured the subtle nuances of each of our personalities. I love the sherbet colored skies and the reflected cloud and family images on the wet beach. You are truly an artist."

My family has had two portrait sessions with Marisa McDonald so far, and the sessions were the best investments we've ever made. We will treasure these images for the rest of our lives. Marisa's eye is amazing, her work is topnotch, and the experience is totally professional and organized every step of the way. I have nothing but praise.

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.

    We will be on vacation in Oceanside next week. We really need family portraits taken so I thought it would be nice to get them done while we are at the ocean! Also other family members will be there so I was hoping we could get a couple of photos with all 9 of us and the majority of them with myself, my boyfriend and our son. Thank you for your time!
