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! ;)

Joanne is one of the most creative photographers we have ever met. She was very professional and she was such a pleasure to work with. We were totally comfortable during the session and she was very punctual. She had a state of the art camera and the finished photos were spectacular; so gorgeous. We would highly recommend Joanne to anyone looking for a photographer for a high end photo shoot.. Joanne, thank-you for a great day; you are amazing! Cathy and Jessica Thank-you Joanne you are wonderful.

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.

We had vacation in Souther California and hired Elena for a family photoshoot. She did great portrait photos of our family and we love the outcome. We even was able to print those pictures and hang it in our living room. I would recommend her to anyone who looking for great family photos.

Laura was WONDERFUL! I could not have asked for a better photographer for my beautiful outdoor wedding. She was available last minute and for a great price. She captured every moment of that special day. From me getting ready to the night ending with everyone celebrating, she took so many beautiful pictures. Laura worked very well with us and was very genuine and sweet. She cares about making sure she gets as many great pictures as she can in the amount of time she has. I would definitely recommend her to others.

I needed some professional photos for my LinkedIn account and WASIO photography was the perfect place. Sasha and Yaneck are two very talented photographers. I felt their humble presence created such an inviting atmosphere which made it easy and comfortable to be in front of the camera. Both of these photographers really take time to capture their client's personality. I appreciated their attention to detail; they understood that the smallest of details such as the position of a hand can improve the overall photo. I was very impressed with the level of skill and concentration that went into each photo. I really enjoyed my experience with WASIO photography and I know you will too.

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

Debora is an amazing and talented photographer. She photographed our elopement. She was very friendly and professional. My partner and I were nervous for our big day but she helped made us feel comfortable and at ease while having fun. She's so creative and captured so many beautiful moments. We couldn't be happier with the end results. She is also affordable which also helped a lot as we were on a budget. We would highly recommend her. Thank you again Debora!

He did a wonderful job. He even brought along with him an additional photograph at no charge to make sure that the lighting and everything was perfect for my products. I highly recommend him for any business that needs to have their products showcased a's well as any family photography. The pictures of the girls came out amazing and he even took home certain items I needed to be shot in the studio his fees are very reasonable and he is very nice and has very creative ideas. I would recommend him more than other people that I've worked with I highly suggest hiring him for any photography needs

    If you’re looking for a fun, yet professional photographer, Klu Photography is the way to go! Setting up a shoot with Khoi was simple and easy. My session included multiple locations and some advice on how to pose and what to do- which I was super greatful for, as I wouldn’t consider myself a natural! On top of it all, the photos turned out beautiful. All around a great experience with Klu Photography.

    I hired Eric to take portraits/headshots. His outdoor, natural light photography aesthetic is really natural, cool, and conveys individuality and genuineness. Working with him was easy, fast, and professional. I will definitely recommend him to other San Diego based individuals looking for beautiful shots.

    Chris is one of the most professional photographers. Very personable and experienced. I needed my engagement photos urgently and he was very quick with sending me photos when I needed them. Will definitely book a session with Chris again.
