I hired Maria to take portrait photos of me back in 2009, and hers are some of the most beautiful shots ever taken of me! I am not photogenic, and it takes amazing skill to satisfy me when it comes to photos! The photos Maria took of me are stunning! I highly recommend her as a photographer.
We hired Scoot to take pictures of our Family reunion BBQ. He arrived well before the BBQ to set up. His work was excellent. We had about 200 people that we wanted documented for years to come. I needed to put a name to all of our relatives (we know who they are now but in 100 years no one will be around to tell us who is in the pictures). Scott came up with the idea of a white board that people put their names on. He took their photo with the white board and again in a proper photo. He made it fun and people where having a good time getting their pictures done. Scott Fink did what he said he would do. I am pleased with the overall experience. I have never hired a photographer before, but we want to use him again for a wedding we are having in September. He was personable and friendly. He brought the personal touch that we were looking for. We wanted the photos to be natural looking as possible and he understood what I was asking for. He took some action shots of the children while they were playing. Some of the shots of the running children were in midair. He did beautiful picture of our vineyards. He utilized our whole place in his photos. He was very reasonably priced. Yes we are going to use him again. We wanted the pictures on a flash drive so that they were easily shared. He did this for us. He stayed for the whole BBQ; (8 hours) way beyond what we expected. He has no need for improvement He was very professional and he had a way to get party goers to come and enjoy getting their picture. He was part of our entertainment. And I will say it again, Yes I am going to hire him for our wedding in September.
Sarah photographed my family in such an amazingly creative way. She was able to capture the spirit, the fun, and the beauty in both color and black and white. We will cherish these memories forever.
Randy did an outstanding job repairing and colorizing a black and white historic portrait of my Grandmother. He went above and beyond to get me the perfect image on a timely manner. He is very nice and professional . I am a very happy camper. Can't wait to present this to my mother as a Mother's Day gift. I am so looking forward in working with him on my next image.
Angelika was our photographer for our vow renewal ceremony. We were thrilled with the photos she took - they are just beautiful. She not only captured the emotion of the event but the spirit of it as well. the setting (on the beach in Carlsbad) was beautiful and her photos showed the beauty perfectly. The special effects, poses and variety of color and black and white were just wonderful. We couldn't be more pleased.
Ms. Olenius provided superb photos of our daughter and her horse. She also took on our family photos including our horse and dog! She is a very talented and innovative photographer. Mallory took our daughter's senior photos. They were original and beautifully produced in both color and black and white with artistic coloration. I am happy to recommend her for any type of photo work. An excellent, creative talent.
My husband and I are not really picture people and find it hard to strike a serious pose in front of cameras so we were hesitant to spend money on a professional photographer. But when I met Nicole, I knew instantly that I wanted her to join us at Palomar Mountain for our casual rustic lodge wedding and we are so happy with the outcome! She made us feel comfortable, she was very patient with us and our weird poses, took orders graciously (oh oh oh get that one!), took us to alternate locations and really captured the spirit of our celebration, especially with the candids. She even took a pre-wedding camping trip to the mountain to scout locations, now that's dedication! We have had nothing but wonderful compliments on her pictures! The day of the wedding was a blur and went by so fast. To me, the most important decision we made in our planning was to have Nicole capture the love and happiness with her camera. Now when we can look back at the day and remember it how it was: perfect! Thanks Nicole! (I was unable to upload color photos due to size; but the black and whites were just as amazing)
Brittany is just amazing! I was her first maternity photo shoot and you never would have known. I had no idea what I wanted, but that was not a problem. She had so many cute ideas and so many props. I am in love with how she captured my big belly. It's hard to feel beautiful when you are huge and round, but I felt gorgeous after seeing my pictures! Not only is her price fair, you also get all photos in both color and black and white. I've had my fair share of other photographers that charge too much money for 15 photos all chosen by the photographer and I don't get the option of both color and B&W. Brittany was a Breath of fresh air after such an experience. She has done my family photos and my newborn photos for both of my babies! She has captured so many precious moments! She has a talent for making and helping me relax and just have fun in front of the camera. The moments I was calming my babies to sleep for the photoshoots were captured. I really can never say enough about how happy I am that I chose Brittany to capture pieces of my heart!
Hi Don. Could you please respond about the black and white version of the headshots? I've been waiting since April 5. Thanks.
The project was completed in one day. This includes delivery of black and white as well as color photos. Good price and good work.
We hired Candice for our youngest daughter's sweet 16 party, and she set the quality and affordability bar very high. While looking for photographers we wanted someone that had experience and that wanted to make the experience a personal one for everyone. To my surprise Candice did just that. Earlier that week she contacted me and asked if she could talk on the phone with our daughter. She wanted to get to know her on a personal level by asking her about things she likes and dislikes. Candice also asked about the kinds of photographs she’d like to take including, backdrops, props, & poses. This personal touch gave me the impression that Candice wanted to be a part of the event and not just photograph it. She cared about our family and making the event special. On the day of the event she was punctual and showed up before we even arrived. When we finally got there she immediately started taking pictures as we all got out of our vehicle which was exciting and felt like being photographed by paparazzi! During our party Candice worked quickly in capturing amazing shots and was very conscious of the setting sunlight. She took amazing pictures in natural light and managed to capture our whole family beautifully! She also managed our guests well and was able to orchestrate them to take pictures with our debutante. Throughout our party she seemed to be everywhere at the same time, capturing random shots of great moments. The quality I most admire about Candice was revealed later that evening. It was getting late and almost time for her session to finish. However she had noticed our concern that one of our family members hadn’t shown up yet. She talked to me and said that missing photographs with any family member would be devastating, but she was willing to wait until their arrival so she could capture the memories that would be everlasting. Her understanding was sublime. After our event Candice was diligent in editing the pictures to ensure the highest quality. She even took the time to add some cool colorized and black and whites of my favorite pictures! I totally recommend Candice to be your next event photographer, she’ terrific!! Thank you so much Candice!!!
She Photographed my daughters wedding. I was very impressed with how prepared she was. She had to deal with rain outside and managed to get all the special shots. She did posed and candid shots. She also did some shots in black and white, it added a lot of interest to my print book. I found she was very professional and easy to work with. I found she did a very good job on the engagement photos taken outside at a park.
Beth was so gracious to take on our wedding last minute. It was our fault being more than an hour late. Well, horrendous bad traffic accident made makeup artist late making the bride late. No one's fault. Beth already had another engagement so we couldn't keep her longer but she made do with lots of pictures before as well as during and right after the ceremony. I wish I had communicated with her better in what I wanted, like providing a list and booked more time with her. She has a natural style, no weird possess and she also fixes up the photos, making people slimmer and younger! :-) If you want that, don't forget to let her know. The black and white versions are fun so are the cool effects she used on more panoramic shots of the ceremony with guests seated. The venue came out lovely. Looked so pretty and bright. I really liked the close up of the passage the Pastor read from. :-)
Brett was flexible and easy to work with - my girls had fun and we have great photos. We love his work with black and white photos with a bit of color. Thank you!
I love the pictures of my granddaughter Chayil and daughter Camille. I love how vibrant and real they are. The black and white and also the combination of color mixed in. They are so life like and they tell a story of family, and a happy child. I loved them!
J & J multimedia did an amazing job taking my senior portraits. I had some elegant and simple shots but i was amazed with the results. I was comfortable with the shots being taken and overall it was a fun experience. Thank you so much for making my graduation day a bit more special with the photos taken.
DeAnna Romero has photographed my boys since they were babies. I LOVE her black and white photography. The pieces in my home are timeless and I will cherish for a lifetime. Her attention to detail is top notch. She's truly amazing!
My family and I are so grateful for the work Jamie Netherland has done for us. We first did a maternity shoot by the bay where I live, including some family portraits and some of just my firstborn and me. There are so many images that I cherish from that day, especially those which captured the bond I had with my son in those last weeks of him being my only child. Jamie had unique ideas for where we should stop to take photos along the way, being inspired by nature: the season, the weather, the flowers and gardens we passed. She also helped us to have funof course genuine smiles are obviously preferred over fake ones! Jamie also did a newborn shoot for us days after my daughter's birth. I love how she used the natural morning light and basic colors and textures from our own home. She was very calm and patient, able to go at my newborns pace. One simple black and white portrait of my open-eyed baby brought me to tears. Every parent knows how quickly those sweet first newborn weeks go by, which is why Im so grateful to have those honest, beautiful images of my baby. Jamie is always punctual, a great communicator, and very accommodating to special requests. I love to support a photographer who volunteers much of her professional time to charities and nonprofits too! Most of all, I appreciate her artistry. The photos are not just pretty, although they are beautiful. They compel, narrate, and catch the atmosphere of the moment. Thank you Jamie!
I needed a photographer for my destination weekend wedding to document the experiences with my friends/family. He did a great job with this project. He captured a lot of "behind-the scenes" and random moments that gave it a more natural and fun feel with the weekend activities as well as the wedding. With that said, he also captured the romantic and sweet moments of my wedding, too. He is definitely one for details. His proofs were quickly produced within about a week after the event. The colors were fabulous, we had a lot of outdoor & sunny and even night time shots, and they looked beautiful. No glares, no washed out images, etc. We also got options in black & white and color. We used both for our beautiful photo book. A dependable and creative photographer!
Tori has been taking photos of my family for the past 19 years. We treasure these photos and especially love the look of the black and white photos of our girls from ages one and up. She is flexible, creative, and talented. She always has great ideas for location and setting. The unposed photos are our favorites!
Brady shot our wedding on Saturday the pictures are amazing. He used both ditial and film color black and white. We had our digital pics in just a few days which is unheard of. But we were able to see our wedding photos so quick which was so nice. His eye for candid pictures is unbelievable I cried when I saw so many natural feel pics one thing I stressed I wanted. He has such a passion highly recommend him. I can't stress enough how happy we are with his photos. We had 2 photographers but honestly we could of just had him and I would of been more then happy. Photos posted are digital the film ones I can't wait to see. And he gave me every photos letting me choose what I didn't want. Trust me you never get that. I will defiantly hire him for all my family photos and occasions from this day forward.
