At the very last minute, my daughter discovered she needed a professional headshot for her med school applications. Adam made him self available within 24 hours - drove from his studio to our home in Westwood. Arrived on the dot, ready to work - with all of his professional equipment. He wasted no time in scouting out the best locations (inside and out), as far as background and lighting. Within one hour, he had set up 3 locations, and had taken over 100 digital shots. He had the proofs ready to review within 4 hours and, when we finally made our choice (a hard one because they were all so good), he offered to professionally re-touch (fly-away hair, wayward shadows, a zit or two!, and more) free of charge. Totally happy with our choice to have him do the job. He's a dad, too, so he has a well-rounded take on life and an easy demeanor. A+ Five-stars! He would be great for family portraits, as well.

Brad was outstanding in every way! He responded to emails quickly, came to the location an hour early to scout out good shots, creative in our poses, and obviously passionate about photography. In addition, his turn around of photos were amazing- same day! Thank you for a memorable family portrait!

In this order- Headshots, maternity, and baptism... these were the 3 times I have hired Richard. I cannot wait to hire him for my wedding. Let me just keep this simple. I have worked with many. Never has there been a time it was more fun, fulfilling, exciting, eventful, professional, easy, and worthwhile among other things. I have always kept my endorsements to myself but being consistent 3 times in a row over a 2 year period is hard to come by. Richard is so efficient and also cares a great deep about his work and what "he puts out there". A true artist who brings the most precious moments to life. I cannot get enough of looking at our photos. Not to mention all the compliments I receive on his work when people ask "who was the photographer?" Thanks to him, our memories will be timeless and beautifully captured. Enough said, hire the guy and save yourself the trouble and disappointment of someone else.

We are new to California so we knew no one to do newborn and family portraits. Found Kelli on here and she arrived today and we were so pleased . She was so creative and sweet , made us all feel comfortable and handled my 19 month like a pro! She spent so much time with all four of us and made sure that there was not one pose or moment that we missed ! I would hire her again in an instant and can't wait to see the finished product!

Couldn't be happier! John was communicative and friendly in setting up our session then so great with our girls in getting them involved and relaxed for the shoot. Plus Becca the make up artist really highlighted their natural beauty. The real reason I'm writing this review though is that their photos came out gorgeous! So, great experience for me and for our girls and ultimately we walk away with professional head shots that really show their personality and beauty. I highly recommend J. Glover photography!

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.

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!

Jami is a TRUE STORYTELLER and artist. She was able to PERFECTLY capture the essence of my corporate event into a magically memorable video. It is one thing to technically be able to produce a flawless video, which Jami did, but it is another thing entirely to be able to reproduce the warmth, emotion, joy and heart of each individual captured on camera and THAT is what puts Jami in a class by herself. She is just that good. Oh and did I mention that she is extremely easy to work with, no ego, as transparent as they come and her only concern is that she delivers you a final product that is exactly what you want - imagine that, old fashioned values of delivering more than her client could ever have expected!! She is THE BEST.

Forrest did a commercial job for and his attitude and work were fantastic. He made the subject feel relaxed, his energy was great and the shoot was professional and fun. End result, beautiful and artistic images. He put in substantially more time and effort that I could possibly have expected. I just hire him again, to shoot my personal headshots and portrait photos for my professional use. Forrest made me feel totally at ease and he made the shoot fun. Love the photos and hight recommend him. He is a pleasure to work with and a motivated and talented photographer. Great photos, responsive and fast results and super professional. I highly recommend him on all levels.

Nicole is a phenomenal photographer, but in addition to being an artist, she was also able to promote and capture the joy of life. We loved having Nicole meet us for a fun photography session at the beach with our furry babies. She captured our family’s collective soul perfectly. I most highly recommend Nicole as a photographer and only hope that she’s available next time we take family photos!

The quality of Philicia's work is spectacular! When I checked out her work on Instagram, I loved all of her portraits and had to have her photograph my model headshots. I'm so happy with the results! I even heard back from two modeling agencies! Philicia, thank you! I will be sure to contact you when I need to update my digitals!
