We hired JP'S for wedding pictures. The photographer is very friendly and kind. I am happy with the first half of the pictures, not the rest. I worked with professional photographers before. When we took pictures outdoors, they would move around a lot to take pictures from different ankles. But with JP'S, because of his lack of mobility (or whatever other reasons), some pictures are just not as nice as I hoped. To be honest, some pictures turned out nice. We wore two different type of outfits on that day. First one turned out nice, not the one in wedding dress. The photographer offered to fix some of the pictures, but we decided not to bother. We spent $500 for an hour of shooting pictures. I want to put it here, may use as reference for anyone who is looking to hire a photographer. I won't work with this one again.

It has only been such a short time from our wedding and we are still so in awe of the work Doug did. He recommended two photographers for our wedding and even though I didn't think it was very big and necessary, I'm so glad I did! He and Bryan were able to be at different locations and have different views and it was perfect! They were easy to get along with, funny, personable and everyone loved them. The pictures came out absolutely incredible and the turnaround time to completion was impressive. They captured all of our requests plus things we wouldn't have thought of. You can never have a "do-over" for wedding pictures and I am so grateful to Doug and Bryan for the impeccable job they did. I would highly, HIGHLY recommend them to anyone for any photography needs!

Our family photos turned out beautifully! She was able to capture the kids giggles and more tender moments just as I had hoped; all while dodging waves, waning light and variable cooperation of our 1 and 4 year old boys! She was flexible with time and also with style of photos from spontaneous moments to more formal groupings. I found her pricing very competitive with South Bay professional photographers who generally charge a sizable fee for prints and images on top of sitting fees. Would recommend Bright Bird without reservation!

We found Vanessa Weber Photography through the Thumbtack website and are so thrilled we were able to book her to shoot our wedding. When we began looking at websites from people who responded to our posting, we noticed right away that the VWP website and portfolio stood out leagues above the other communications we had received. From the get go, Vanessa was professional, efficient, and very kind. She made the whole “business process” extremely easy with multiple ways to pay and straightforward contracts. As for the “creative process” she was brilliant in really trying to understand exactly what we wanted and made sure through our meeting beforehand, pinterest boards, and email that she had a clear idea of what we wanted and expected. Day of, her and her partner were absolute pros. They gave great direction and kept our large family on track to get all the pictures we wanted done in an efficient, creative, non awkward way. I am normally one to hide from cameras and was nervous the whole element of photographers would make me really anxious but both Vanessa and her partner Seth made me feel extremely comfortable the whole day. As for the pictures, they are stunning. VWP provided excellent communication post wedding and got our pictures back to us extremely quickly. I’ve had friends wait months to see their pictures and we had ours within a couple weeks. They are absolutely perfect, exactly what we wanted and more. We, with our family, will treasure the pictures forever. We could not recommend Vanessa Weber Photography more!

I have worked with Carlye several times over the past three years. Every time and with every project Carlye delivers beautiful pictures and videos. Carlye is professional, easy to work with, and extremely creative. What is most surprising is the speed in which she delivers a finished project. Most photographers and Video-ographers take weeks to even let you take a peek at your project. Carlye is quicker than anyone I have ever worked with, with no compromise to the finished project. You can ask Carlye to edit her work, for example change music, she does it with ease. I would highly recommend Carlye Ann Productions for any event, wedding or project you may have.

My daughters head shots came out beautiful. I have checked out other photographers in SB and Lucia is the best by far. We are so thankful to find her. Sommer was very comfortable with her and the turn around time of images was super quick. Love her!!

Shandi was awesome. She is an extremely talented photographer. We LOVED our maternity photos. She is easy going and this helped us feel very comfortable, since it was our first time doing a photo shoot. We were extremely happy with the final product.

Ash took photos of my new puppy for me. She has a way with dogs I can't describe! She was able to get the perfect pictures of my new puppy with ease. I am very happy of the pictures I have and will be returning when my puppy is older! This is great to receive high quality photographs without paying some of those ridiculous prices. I fully recommend her to anyone who wants any picture! Thank you Arist Ash!

Wow! What an amazing photographer! We got married on Dec. 15 at the Santa Barbara Zoo and so many people told us how hard it was to photograph there, Isaiah proved so many people wrong. He was fun and great to work with. His eye for detail blew my wife and I out of the water! His eye to see the small details of every piece of picture really helped. He knew how to blend colors and make us pop and stand out way more than I thought is possible! I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer!!!

I have been a photographer for as long as I can remember. I am turning my love and passion for the art into a career. I am taking in classes now, and I am mainly trying to build my portfolio which means I will work for cheap, but the quality of images will be rich. Families, portraits, weddings/engagements, pets, and sports photos are what I love and strive to do.
