We began using Joanne as our family photographer when our son was 6 months old (in Hawaii)…and I'm so happy we did!!! She's help capture his precious infant/toddler years in her Watch Me Grow & Watch Me Grow Some More package…which we all LOVE looking through now that he's almost 6 years old. Joanne is AMAZING with infants & toddlers! She's patient and sweet, and kids love her! We've even used her as our photographer for our preschool…and the images were incredible! Our favorite photo session with her was a couple of months ago at Disneyland! She captured the essence of our favorite times at the place "where dreams come true."

More than Outstanding! Very talented and professional photographer. Clay is a very driven and passionate man who works in a timely manner! He provides lots of creative ideas and has a special eye that somehow combines creative and professional, perfectly. Clay and his assistant came to shoot a commercial industry shoot. He was very time efficient, talented and most of all an enjoyable photographer to have around! 10 stars!

Laura did an outstanding job during the photo shoot staying patient with my 17 month old son and orchestrated a beautiful experience for my parents-in-law. And the finished product was absolutely stunning! The photos made me cry! She captured beautiful moments of my family that we will treasure for a lifetime! We've already planned 2 more photo shoots with Laura and will continue to use her as our family photographer! I would HIGHLY recommend Laura Carrasco!

We hired Kelly to be our photographer at our wedding. We hired her because of the quality of work we saw in her portfolio and because of how excellent she was to work with. She is fast to respond, extremely knowledgable, and (most importantly) one of the best photographers around. Our pictures came out exactly how we wanted them. She took beautiful shots that captured everything from the scenery to the special moments of us saying I do. She was very comfortable to work with and knew exactly what we wanted. Before our shoot, we had a Skype call and she went over our questions and helped us find what we wanted for our shoot. I have only fantastic things to say about Kelly. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a great photographer.

I had an awesome overall experience with Wasio faces! Sasha and Yaneck are wonderful and really made my first experience getting headshots taken a fun and professional one! They made me feel so comfortable and at home as well. If you are looking for professional photographers either for weddings, headshots or any other event, I highly recommend Wasio!

I put off having family photos taken for a lot longer than I'd like to admit because I am not a photogenic person. Not only did she take the most beautiful family photos for us, but she took single shots of me that I absolutely love...and I didn't think it was possible! She has an eye for capturing pure beauty in a way that is absolutely unique! She is brilliant!

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 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

We did a family photo shoot for my parent's anniversary and Kelly and her girls were so great to work with! They scoped out locations in advance which made it very helpful since I am not local. They were very accommodating and by the end of the evening, we were able to look at the photos as a family!

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!!!!

Harmony did an excellent job with the family photo shoot I booked her for right after Thanksgiving. She was such a pleasure to work with. My family and I are so happy with the wonderful photographic memories that we have that were captured by Harmony. She was very professional & kept everyone on task setting up each shot. I’m so grateful that I was able to find her for my family session.

It was an amazing experience working with Heena. She puts her heart into her work and it is visible in her projects/pictures. She is very professional and organized. She has a huge collection of props and backgrounds to match your theme. She has experience with babies and is super patient. She is willing to work that extra mile to make her customer happy and this what makes her different from any of other photographers. I will be hiring her again for my child’s first birthday and cake smashing. Thank you Heena for all your hard work.

Robert took my senior pictures and I was extremely happy with them. I am usually very picky with how pictures of myself turn out but these were great! He was so patient and is so skilled at capturing exactly what you are looking for. I am so pleased with my experience. He is beyond talented and passionate about what he does. The pictures were high quality and looked very professional. I was eager to show my pictures to all my family and friends. I would absolutely recommend Robert Dennis for your photography needs. I can guantee you will not be disappointed.

Jimmy was a very easygoing and flexible photographer. He was very patient as he photographed our large extended family of 15 (including my wily 3 year old son!). We went over in our allotted time and he graciously didn't charge us more for that. Need I say that he was a great value. We got our pictures, edited, back so quickly too, which made it nice because we needed some of the pictures for our holiday cards. He responded to emails very quickly. It should be noted that we were a very rambunctious, 'Type A' sort of group and we provided a lot of the ideas of how we would be composed in each picture. We might have benefitted from more direct guidance from Jimmy on how to be arranged, what angles would look best on us, and getting both kids and adults to look into the camera, but he was probably just going with the flow. A small comment, because we think he would provide that guidance if we were to ask for it. We would definitely utilize his services again! Thanks Jimmy!

Verified review

Joni Connor is not only a true artist, but a true professional. I can see the care, and time she puts in even before her shoots. She scoped out the area a day before hand, making sure to note just the perfect lighting, and allowed time for the tone of her photos to settle in her mind before actually performing her craft. Joni did a phenomenal photo shoot for me last year for my Chinese Medicine -acupuncture and herbal practice. The quality of the photos is exquisite, she understands texture and mood. I was so happy with the results, that I even received a patient out of one of my business Instagram posts! If you want a talented, thorough, dedicated, accommodating and professional photographer who possesses true artistry , I would contact Joni. I was very satisfied with her work and would recommend her to anyone!

Verified review

Darryn St. John captured the natural beauty and unique surroundings of Quail Haven Farm in the photographs of us at our wedding reception. Darryn is very creative and took advantage of the blooming wisteria, which he knew would add so much to our photographs. He also selectively changed the focus of the backgrounds as we moved around the farm. Darryn was efficient and made sure we were able to get photos of family and friends before the festivities got under way. He also took time to capture those photos that aren’t planned – the grandchildren dancing with the bride, friends and family celebrating and more. Darryn was pleasant to work with and we enjoyed our time with him. We received an email link within a couple days so we were able to view and share our beautiful photos with family that were still in town. We would definitely work with Darryn again.

Jed Zant Photography is unmatched. His eye for beauty, lighting, location and depth make him a dream to work with. After shooting our Details Dancewear Queen of Hearts Collection, we knew we would be working with him again. Positive and enthusatstic on set as well as with our model, we were proud to share the outcome. Live now on social media and web, his incredible shots are featured and with raving reviews from fans, clients, dancers and other photographers. As a company owner, I definitely recommend this talented young artist. -Vela Bianca, Details Dancewear, Details by Vela, Vela Bianca Swimwear
