Brad was a pleasure to work with. He made extra efforts throughout and to find good photo spots. He was very congenial and responsive despite dealing with a baby and a dog in the photos. And he’s continued to be responsive.Nov 26, 2018Verified
I can't say enough about Brad. He was amazing from beginning to end. I decided a day before my Mothers 70th Birthday that I needed a photographer to capture special moments as my Mother is currently fighting stage 4 lung and brain cancer. I'm so glad I found Brad as he made sure to capture so many special moment that I will be able cherish forever. He was patient, he's great with children and made sure every photo was perfect. Thank you so much Brad! I'm so happy with all the pictures and most of all for the fast delivery of them as I was able to share with my Mom.Oct 22, 2016Verified
Fantastic experience with Brad. I would definitely recommend. We hired Brad to do a family shoot with 8 adults and 6 kids under the age of 5. Brad arrived early to scout out the area, moved furniture (including huge rocking chairs and umbrellas) to get the best shots, and best of all, the kids loved him. He was a total pro at every step - responsive, great demeanor, professional. We love the photos and can’t believe how many great shots we got. We had edited digital photos back in 48 hours! Thank you, Brad, for helping us capture our family reunion!Aug 5, 2018Verified
He took a boat from OC to Catalina in 1 days notice to the surprise engagement photos. Good price and great quality. Thanks, Brad!Oct 13, 2017Verified
Photo session of my son for graduation. He got there ahead of us to pick out good places to take the photos. His payment system was down so I gave him cash with out a receipt or product. I felt uneasy about that but I decided to trust him. It worked out , thank goodness!Jan 22, 2017VerifiedBrad Zangwill Photography's reply
This is an odd review. Let me clarify that this was a $150 graduation portrait at a park for Dana's son. I normally cover weddings for 2-4k, so it's disappointing to see my other clients impacted by this confusing review. Instead of highlighting the positives about the shoot, she focused on the money. Everything about the shoot was on point. I showed up early, chose the best scenic places in the area, delivered the collection quickly and the client was very happy. I set a high standard for my quality and art, and this client got the benefits of all that.
