This was our first time working with a professional photographer. Danielle was amazing from the very beginning. She offered creative ideas and took the time to lay every detail out for us. Our engagement shoot turned out amazing. Her turn around time is great. She doesn't make you wait forever. We are looking forward to getting our wedding photos back soon!

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.

Jason was so nice and he was so professional! It seemed like he was easy to work with next to the photographers and the coordinator. What we really liked about him is that he captured our wedding day, but he was never in our way! You will want to hire Jason to capture your wedding!

As a Realtor for 12 years I can confidently say that David is quick, quality and amazingly professional. In all the years of doing Real Estate I have only come across a very small amount of professional and qualified photographers and videographers, and David definitely fills that category. I called him on a Saturday and he made it to my listing within an hour, was fair on pricing and worked with me along the way to create a wonderful video. My clients were highly impressed as well as myself. I will be using David for all of my Real Estate needs moving forward.

Tom was such a pleasant person to work with. He was on time, he took his time with the pictures and video, he did an excellent job with editing the pictures and they all looked fantastic. He did much more than what he was supposed to do for this shooting. He provided the final product in less than a day. I am just so excited that I was able to work with him and I think I found my to go photographer for all my real estate listings. Thank you Tom!

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!

He was very professional and coordinated well with the photographers. He arrived early to capture the bridal parties getting ready and stayed throughout the evening until the reception was almost over. We are excited to see the beauty he captured of our special day!

Elena was truly amazing to work with - I had kind of a particular engagement plan that had a lot of moving pieces but she was totally upbeat and willing to go along. She totally kept a surprise from my fiance who didnt realize that we were in an engagement session. Additionally, the photographs were really great and Elena did a good job of getting the finished photos back to me very quickly. I liked all of the natural light that we used in our pictures and she really did capture the candid moments very well. Highly highly recommend Elena to anyone looking for a photographer and hope to work with her another time I am in San Diego :)

My fiance and I hired Chasing Light to do our photo and video for our wedding. Their pricing was perfect for what we were looking for and we were very excited to be getting both photo and video by the same team. We recently had our engagement photos and cannot begin to explain how happy we are to have chosen them. Our photographer, Russ, was very flexible with the date and even helped us find the perfect location. He definitely listened to what we had in mind and was even ok with my fiance wearing his sunglasses for some of the shots. Russ was very easy to work with and had 2 preview images back to me within the next hour! On top of that, he had the rest of our images ready the next day and they are everything we hoped for and more! I have friends who had to wait weeks to get their engagement photos back. Needless to say, we are obsessed with our engagement photos and CANNOT wait to see how our wedding photos and video turn out.

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

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!!!!

My photographer was out of town, and I needed a sub fast. Mario was right there, did a great job, and was a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Mario to anyone in need of a professional photographer. Quality, professionalism, great service, and just a real nice guy are what you can expect... Anthony B.

Jayson photographed my wedding, and my husband and I could not be more happy with the experience and results! A personal pet peeve of mine is when wedding photographers distract all the guests by getting up close to the ceremony, ruining the experience for everyone watching in person. Jayson is ninja-like in his ability to blend in to the background while he photographs from afar, producing beautiful shots of the ceremony while going completely unnoticed by any of the guests. When it came time to take posed photographs, he did exactly as I asked and moved it along quickly, so it didn’t feel tedious or disorganized. That’s a major plus when you’ve already spent hours organizing every other aspect of the event. I would highly recommend Juxtaposition for your wedding or event!
