    My theatre company has been working with Brad for 3 years now. He does our videography for our productions and does a great job. He's great at taking notes from us to give us what we want. Outstanding with response time to questions, booking, etc. He's always friendly, professional, and punctual. The quality is great and in fact each time we hire him its better. I would highly recommend his services.

    WOW - talk about a true professional!! We spent a lot of time combing through options for our photographer and settled on Brad due to his fabulous portfolio, responsiveness, and incredible value. We are so glad that we did!! He was responsive and helpful through the whole planning process, was punctual on the day of, and he and his second shooter were completely on the ball the entire day of our wedding and didn't miss a trick. They use all of the best cameras and equipment, and occasionally he would flip his camera around to show me the amazing shot he just took ("You have to see this.") and I am DYING - I cannot wait to get all of our photos back! I can tell that these photos are going to be above and beyond my wildest dreams and our most special memories are very safe in the skilled hands of this team. Brad and his assistant were kind, fun, at-the-ready and true artists. We could not have picked a better photographer for our special day and we cannot wait for our next big even when we can hire them again.

    Brad photographed our corporate meeting with a high profile client for 3 hours. The variety and quality of photos he took absolutely blew me and our team away. We are so happy with the shots he captured. He was professional, arrived on time, and was very understanding with the fluid nature of our meeting and went with the flow without almost any direction from our team. I will absolutely use Brad again for all future events and photography needs that our company has.

    Brad is nicest, most professional photographer! And his prices are more than reasonable. They are good! His 20 years of experience is evident! Brad's creativity is unbelievable! We hired Brad for our small wedding. He arrived on time, despite bad traffic, and it being the worst rain storm of the year! Brad took photos that we asked for and then went above and beyond! He "disappeared" when taking pictures, we forgot he was there at times. But he would suddenly be right there showing us pictures he took and how awesome they were. We highly recommend Brad and will definitely call on him again. Thank you Brad for making our evening special and our memories special.

    Would call again for next photo session needs
    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!
    Brad Z. Feb 19, 2017

    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.

    QUICK, professional and thoughtful Photographer
    Brad is an EXCELLENT photographer to work with. He is quick, got on the ground to get that perfect angle of us... and he knows what to do when the lighting changes. At the top of our ceremony, the sun came out super harsh and I thought oh well, those pic will suck... and those pics were PERFECT as with all others. I seriously thought they would be washed out. Nope. Hire Brad. He knows what he is doing.

    My 16 year old is thrilled!!
    Brad (and Thumbtack) were phenomenal! At nearly the last minute I decided a professional photographer was in order for my daughter's Sweet 16 party. Somehow while searching the internet I found Thumbtack and after a few tries, found Brad. I provided no direction beyond the location and time of the party. He showed up as promised and did an incredible job. My daughter and I could not be happier with the photos. Thanks Brad!!

    Hire Brad you will not be disappointed!
    Brad was outstanding! He showed me a few of his shots he had taken throughout my wedding day and I can tell you they are AMAZING! He was a pro with the lighting and positioning of all of us! We had 3 toddlers who wanted NOTHING to do with photos but he was extremely patient and calm even when I felt like I was going to lose it! He did a great job getting all of the shots I had requested and accommodated all group shots that were asked of him. A lot of times I didn't even notice him around shooting until he showed me a moment he had captured. I highly recommend him, trust me you will not be disappointed. The photos are all you have left after the wedding day is over, so I understand how important they are and although I haven't received all the photos yet (my wedding was just a few days ago) I am so excited to see the rest because I am sure they will look equally as amazing! Thank you Brad for capturing my day the exact way I had hoped you would!

    Best Photographer, even better than my friends
    We stumbled upon Thumbtack in search for a photographer (that wasn't ourselves or our friends) for our wedding. Brad's photos showed his dedication to getting the perfect shot. So we hired him for our fashionista wedding on the beach. Not only Brad affordable, but accommodated the drive to Santa Barbara, and was 100% amazing! He brought a second photographer (for an additional fee), carried multiple cameras and lenses, and made sure they both fulfilled all of our requests. He took photos from multiple locations, while laying on his back, from above on a balcony, and even across a pond. His photos are stunning! I would definitely hire him again if given an opportunity. You are lucky to reserve him...if you can!

    Best Photographer Ever
    Brad was absolutely AMAZING! You can tell he genuinely loves what he does, which is my favorite thing about Brad. I was a bit nervous hiring a photographer that I hadn't officially met in person, especially since photography is one of the most important things for a wedding. Brad did not disappoint. He arrived 30 minutes early, bright eyed and ready to go. He paid SUCH close attention to detail, and was really into getting the perfect shot. He gives you little sneak peaks on his camera so you can see how amazing everything is turning out. He had plenty of equipment, was very creative with his shots, and quick to capture the moments. I knew this man was the truth when he sent over a few highlights the very next morning. I mean, who is so into what they do that they're still working on your stuff after shooting for 8 hours the day before? I can't think of anyone! He was super pleasant, and fun. I felt comfortable talking to him and asking him questions or for certain shots. He wasn't one of those snobby photographers that try to boss you around and don't listen to what you want. Anyway, I could go on and on about how amazing Brad is, but I think you get the picture. If you're nervous about hiring him, don't be. He's the best and you won't regret it!

He was extremely professional, arrived early, brought all the equipment we could have needed and his overall demeanor was FANTASTIC! Such a pleasure to be around, really personable, very proactive in getting all the photos we needed. And looking at the photos he sent over, I mean WOW! Great job - he is definitely our #1 go-to photographer and will use him many times in the future. Thanks again Brad, the night would not have been the same without you!

    Brad did a fantastic job photographing our wedding!! He was on time and had great energy and got started right away! We had a very big (and loud) bridal party and he was very patient and great with getting everyone to focus. He helped to pose everyone to make sure we all looked good. He would even retake pictures if shadows were cast badly or hair was not looking good. He had a lot of great ideas for creative and fun shots. He was very attentive and willing to go the extra mile to get the perfect shot. I've only seen 2 pictures so far but they looked so amazing, I can't wait to see the rest! Thank you brad, you were amazing! I had a lot of guests ask where I found you and if they could get your card and contact info. I will gladly recommend you to anyone looking for a photographer!! -Kristy and Sean

    I am HORRIBLE! I want to first apologize to Brad for this very long overdue review, please forgive me! My reception was on March 20, 2015! With that being said, Brad answered all my messages in a timely manner, and was always available through text if I needed anything. He showed up in a very timely manner and asked if there was anything I wanted specifically for my pictures, but I just wanted small details since he was photographing my reception. My biggest regret was not getting a picture with my mom and my brother, but that's no one's fault but my own. He captured some BEAUTIFUL photos of my son. I really wish I could add a picture to this review, but I was sooooo happy with the work. It did take a little longer than 30 days to receive the edited pictures, but SOOOO worth it! He let me know he was doing the work and let me know that it was coming out later than expected so I was never worrying what was going on. I believe I was given a fair price, if not a steal, and was very happy with my pictures. These pictures allow me to relive the night that meant so much to me. Thank you so much Brad!

Anyway, Brad and his team picked beautiful spots for photos WITH LOTS OF SHADE which certainly helped keep everyone happy.

    Brad was fantastic! When he arrived at our location, he quickly scanned the scenery, and within seconds was able to determine the most beautiful spots to shoot. He picked several places based on existing architecture, landscape and foliage. His vision was amazing! A true photographer. I was worried about all the people in the area, but he knew how to set up the shots so it looked like we were the only ones there. He was also able to direct us into poses that may have felt unnatural, but translate wonderfully to the finished photo. The results were beautiful! I'm always concerned about color and lighting - I see so many photographers get it wrong, but our photos are truly professional quality. If you want someone who strikes a nice balance between efficiency, artistry, and reasonable pricing (and who doesn't?) then I highly recommend Brad!

He is so instinctively quick and able to capture moments. He also has a strong crew. We opted for photos and video with Brad. We had children in our wedding party whom Brad photographed vivid and candidly.

    I am very satisfied with Brad's photography. :)I We paid a very reasonable price for 3 hrs and the photos came out GREAT!! Brad photographed our wedding at the Old Orange County Courthouse. I found him through thumbtacks and booked 2 months in advance. Every time I had a question I would just text him and response from him was always very quick. The day of the wedding, Brad arrived promptly as we agreed with his assistant (who was also taking pictures as well) Both were ready with their high quality camera, capturing as much moments they can. Brad has a background of years of experience so he already knew what he was doing. After our 3 hrs ended we paid him and he told us that it would take about 4 weeks until we receive the USB with the edited photos through the mail. And yes that was very accurate, about 4 weeks he sent us the link to view them through his websites and 2 days later we received the USB. We received a good amount of edited photos and we love them all! I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is in need of a great photographer. Thank you so much Brad!! :)

    Brad photographed our wedding, we chose brad based on his portfolio and a brief conversation explaining what we were looking for in a photographer. He exceeded our expectation and we had numerous comments as to him being the "best photographer" they have seen. We must agree Brad was on time and kept in touch through the entire process. He worked well with our videographer ensuring they captured everything we asked for. It is without reservation that we would recommend his services to anyone. Brad is a true professional in his trade and we are thankful to have found him to capture our very special day. Thank you

    Brad was an amazing photographer for our wedding day! He was on time, had excellent communication, and surprised us with his work. He used all of his available space to take his photos. He would even take pictures of other people taking pictures. He was so smooth! If you are looking for a great photographer for a great price, Brad is the one for you! Thank you so much Brad for your wonderful work! We really appreciate you!

    My boyfriend and I met with Brad for some couples portraits. Neither of us really like posing for photos, but Brad and his assistant made us feel really comfortable. We got a link to our photos within a week, and we're really happy with them! I would definitely hire Brad again.

    Brad and his team are simply OUTSTANDING! If you're considering a few photo/video professionals, stop and hire Next Level Photo Video. For our wedding, Brad's entire team new exactly how to direct us and the guests when we needed direction and how to blend into the background when it was time to capture those special moments; all with a great attitude and smile. Right away you get the sense that Brad and team truly care about their work and the goal is to turn in timeless memories. I highly recommend Brad and Next Level! Great Job Next Level! Thanks again!

    Brad took so many photos and was always looking for that perfect shot. He maintains communication and get everything you want done. He even did the spider man pose for us in the middle of the street to get a good angle for a photo. Brad is just amazing. Highly recommended !!

    I picked Brad because I liked his portfolio. He responded quickly to inquires and was a pleasure to work with. He came early to the event and took magnificent photos. He made great use of Bokeh technique, took dozens of photos of every moment to never miss a beat. There must be 10+ photos of the wedding kiss. The ceremony was at night in low lighting conditions and Brad still got the right focus and exposure. The photos came early and the client is satisfied. I am looking forward to working with you at the next event Brad. - steve elkins @ Moondance Production

    Brad was awesome! He arrived on time as discussed and even worked with my change of schedule. The event was for my sons' 1st birthday party. We had about 200 guests and of course, many moments to capture and remember. I can't wait to see the images he's captured. I was able to see glimpses during the party on his camera and was happy with them, which says a lot, because I'm a passionate-hobbyist photographer with picky photography standards. Every picture I wanted taken was taken, every request was granted. Thank you Brad for being professional and capturing one of the more important mildstones in my sons' life!

    Brad was amazing! His attention to the small details is more than exceptional. He knew where to be and when to get outstanding shots both candid and formal. He really has an eye for thinking out of the box to get unique and memorable photos. Brad is not afraid to really get in and get those really good shots during the ceremony and on the dance floor. We couldn't have asked for a better photograper for our special day.

    Brad was phenomenal to work with. I asked him a couple days before my photoshoot if he can schedule me an appointment for a photo session and he agreed to although it was kind of last minute. His response time to all my questions were was very quick. On the day of my photoshoot (today), I woke up a little late than I planned to and realized I needed more time to get ready. Although I felt very bad, I asked him if I could delay the time a little... an hour before the photo session and he agreed to and was very kind/understanding about it. And talking about photography skills, WOW! Brad is outstanding. I had no idea where to shoot but described the setting I wanted and he recommended Fullerton Arboretum which I found out today is such a beautiful place and I was so glad that was where the photo session took place! Brad was great at telling me what type of poses to do and after every set of photos he took, he showed them to me which I really appreciated and loved!!! The photos came out spectacular and gorgeous as well as the scenery! I am very pleased with this experience and would hire Brad again if I ever do photoshoots again. His speedy replies, kindness, willingness to make an appointment asap for me, being understanding, knowledgable about what place I would like to shoot at, affordable prices, and his amazing photography skills was such a blessing to work with! Thanks Brad! :) -Stella

    Brad showed up early to our holiday party for the purpose of event photography. Before the party got underway he took some incredible shots of our home that look spectacular. They are architectural magazine quality. He also took some great pictures of our dogs that make those mutts ;-) look like show dogs! As guests arrived, he took great images of my wife and I as we greeted the guests and then took their picture in front of our Christmas tree and again, these look like magazine photos.He would always show you the image from the back of his camera. Something my wife appreciated so that if she didn't like her hair or something, she could re-pose. During the event he captured great candid shots of the guests mingling, talking and dancing as well as additional posed images of groups standing or sitting together. He used a variety of lenses and equipment throughout the night. Some of the images of the crowd were taken from high up with a wider lens. Some of the outdoor images of the house he took with a long exposure capturing the lighting and the moon in the background. He is a professional, but also very personable. The guests enjoyed him. He has the ability to get people to open up and present well in front of the camera. Further, before I forget, he also professional crops, edits and color corrects all of the images. We had almost 400 images from our event and he spent far more effort than I would ever have expected perfecting the images after the fact for what we paid. He is very fairly priced and worth every penny!

    Mr. Zangwill might be a good photographer, but he doesn't keep his word. A agreement was make, temp contract was signed, but days later he went back on his word & bond. We here at Remlore Pictures can't do business with someone that breaks thier word.
    Brad Z. Dec 16, 2014

    I met with this prospect and learned in our initial meeting that there was no funding. I was asked to perform work for free and within 2 days nicely told the client that I cannot work for free. I actually offered to offer the free filming if he would just accommodate my local location to film. Instead of being appreciative of the offer, he turned it down and left me a bad review. There are plenty of photographers out there willing to work like that, but I am not one of them. I wish James the best of luck with the filming of his movie that currently has no funding.

    Brad did an excellent job taking and editing photos for our family fall/holiday pictures. He was extremely considerate, agreeable and easy to work. He was even able to get our two dogs' attention so that they were looking at the camera in many of the shots. We couldn't believe how fast his turn around time was...we were able to view all the files online the next day and then he edited the photos within one week or so. A great photographer and very professional. Highly recommended!!!

    Brad Zangwill photographed my mother's 75th surprise birthday party just two days ago. Before the party, we did a photo shoot of just the immediate family -- grandparents, siblings, grandchildren. It was a lot of fun. Within one hour, Brad managed to photograph us at 5 different locations on the grounds of the hotel where we were. He is super nice, very professional, and very quick! Once the party started, Brad was snapping photos at all the right moments, especially during emotional speeches. I can't wait to see what our photos look like! This is the first time we have such a large event -- 85 people -- and I was a little stressed out. I have to say that Brad's calm presence and efficient demeanor really helped put me at ease. No matter that the champagne was late and the mic didn't work, I knew that at least we would have great photos/great memories regardless. Thank you, Brad!

    Brad Zangwill and staff are by far the most amazing photographers ever--would Never have photography done with anyone else. This project was our wedding. Of course we wanted everything perfect--and it was. Brad shows such enthusiasm, creativity, and sensitivity to what we wanted. He suggested things I didn't even think to do. He was so very easy to get a hold of--always responding back to me--Same Day!! He was always on time. The quality of the pictures were outstanding, all at reasonable cost, and he is just one easy man to work with. Because he kept his cost down, I was able to include other things--like a little interview of us that he showed at the wedding before the ceremony started. People really loved that! No need to look further--he is your man!! I am happy to recommend him and would be happy to speak with anyone individually as well...just call. 909-240-9211--kathy

    Brad no showed for my event last Saturday. I was left with no pictures at all for my husbands 50th birthday. He was expected and never showed up no call or messages explaining why. So extremely upset. This was a huge surprise party I had planned for over 6 months and I have no pictures to remember it by except for a few iPhone photos I was able to take.

    I had my Christmas photos done with Brad. He was very reasonably priced, on time, very creative and super friendly. I was thrilled the entire family shoot "only" took about 20 minutes. ( My boys hate having their pictures done.) He had the pictures back very quickly. I would use his services time and time again!

    This shoot was actually an hour and a half..I'm not sure why Karen wrote this. It was a great shoot with her family at Central Park in Huntington Beach. We shot in five different locations during the shoot. We always work as a 2-person team, one photographer, and one assistant for lighting & additional coordination. We are very happy with these photos. Please note that this was definitely not a 20 minute shoot. Brad Zangwill 714 496 0552.
