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.

We asked Jessica to take outdoor family portraits of us for Christmas 2017. She and Bobby did a great job. Accommodated our tight schedule. Really professional, creative and fun. The whole family are very happy with the results!

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.

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!

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!!!!

Meg is amazing and a real professional! Her experience in photography really shows in her work. From our first meeting with Meg, we were thoroughly impressed with how detailed, professional, and natural her approach was. We were not sure about having a photoshoot as we don't regularly take lots of pictures together but Meg really made us feel relaxed and calm by guiding us during our engagement shoot. We instantly felt comfortable and confident that she would do a great job as our wedding photographer. Leading up to our wedding, she was excellent with maintaining communication and she gave us great information about how to prepare for the engagement shoot, how to plan our photo lists and what would work best with our timeline. In fact, she helped give good feedback about our timeline, which was extremely helpful. Our wedding was a DIY wedding, which meant that we did everything ourselves and didn't have a wedding coordinator but Meg was great with communicating with our wedding party about the timeline. We were also impressed with how open she was to suggestions about particular shots we wanted. During our wedding Meg was very organized, efficient and kept everything moving along. She was so attentive about keeping us relaxed and she even was so helpful in keeping me hydrated. She would jump in to make sure we got the shots that we would treasure. Meg did an amazing job capturing candid photos and the essence of our wedding, all without us even noticing that he was floating around! Since we didn't have a videographer, we loved all the natural moments she captured of our guests and of us too of course! She was very great with reminding us about the family portraits that we wanted to have. Meg was so great with all of our family and guests too! Some of our friends were so happy to have the chance to get a nice photograph taken that day. I must also mention that our wedding was outdoors so the full sun made it challenging to find good lighting but Meg was prepared as she arrived early and found several great spots around the venue to capture great pictures. She would quickly adapt as the elements would change and this is definitely not easy to do. She has a great eye for lighting. Meg went above and beyond as she even stayed longer to help break down the wedding decorations and pack the party rentals. She didn't have to but I could tell that she is a genuine person as she took action and helped clear things. We are so grateful to you Meg!!! We were extremely happy with the quality of our photographs, we even had a guest mention that several of the final images look like a Renoir painting! If you're looking for someone who is professional, organized, thoughtful, experienced and overall a genuine person, Meg is the photographer to capture your special day. You won't go wrong with Meg Marie Photography! We highly recommend Meg for your wedding day! Simon and Monique Schafer

Dakota took our family pictures at the beach in San Diego. He took some great shots. We took sunset pictures, around 5pm, and the light was beautiful. He took some portrait type and then some candid. He was willing to take whatever pictures we asked him to, even super silly ones of us and the kids. He got the pictures to us within a week. I definitely have my pick of photos to use for my Christmas card, and I will be enlarging and framing some as well. We were very pleased with Dakota's pictures and we would hire him as our photographer again.

During family portraits: Ryan kept the mood light and took his time/didn’t make the event feel rushed. He helped us achieve the poses we wanted to emulate while also suggesting ones that were even better suited to us as a couple/ the location we were in.

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 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 punctual, extremely professional and delivered the final product promptly. We will definitely hire him again for our future events!

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.

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.
