5âï¸ experience. Hired Gabriel for a family portrait while vacationing in San Diego. We love our portraits and the experience was great. Thank you!!
From my first inquiry about the project to delivering our finished photos, I found Jessica to be a true first-class professional. Even my skeptical husband (who didn't think we needed professional photographers for a family shoot) was blown away with the photos and my entire family of 5 truly feel that we hit the "photographer jackpot" when we found Jessica and Bobby. Thank you for listening to our needs and for making us feel very comfortable during the shoots at Sunset Cliffs. My children loved the time you both spent with them and how you added some special creative magic to make some playful pictures for us. We really appreciate how you were also so responsive after the shoot, and for delivering our photos within a 3 day turnaround. We are definitely enjoying digitally viewing our family and individual photos now, but the hard part is selecting which photos of the many we all love to be "printed or framed." Bottom line, we are confident Jessica and Bobby will also exceed your expectations like they did ours. Your overall experience will be nothing short of remarkable.
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.
AMAZING photographer!!!! Heather has always done great work. She isn't just a photographer, she is an ARTIST!!!! Heather Photography is also competitive in his pricing. I HIGHLY recommend her.
Laura was WONDERFUL! I could not have asked for a better photographer for my beautiful outdoor wedding. She was available last minute and for a great price. She captured every moment of that special day. From me getting ready to the night ending with everyone celebrating, she took so many beautiful pictures. Laura worked very well with us and was very genuine and sweet. She cares about making sure she gets as many great pictures as she can in the amount of time she has. I would definitely recommend her to others.
I needed some professional photos for my LinkedIn account and WASIO photography was the perfect place. Sasha and Yaneck are two very talented photographers. I felt their humble presence created such an inviting atmosphere which made it easy and comfortable to be in front of the camera. Both of these photographers really take time to capture their client's personality. I appreciated their attention to detail; they understood that the smallest of details such as the position of a hand can improve the overall photo. I was very impressed with the level of skill and concentration that went into each photo. I really enjoyed my experience with WASIO photography and I know you will too.
Dan was great!! He photographed my daughters birthday party and got so many great shots!! I decided at the last minute that I had wanted to hire someone and so glad that I did and it was Dan! He did a great job of capturing candid along with portrait shots. With all the pictures that he took the day of the party he got everything sorted through and edited super fast! I will definitely be calling Dan when I need a photographer again!!
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!!!!
He did a wonderful job. He even brought along with him an additional photograph at no charge to make sure that the lighting and everything was perfect for my products. I highly recommend him for any business that needs to have their products showcased a's well as any family photography. The pictures of the girls came out amazing and he even took home certain items I needed to be shot in the studio his fees are very reasonable and he is very nice and has very creative ideas. I would recommend him more than other people that I've worked with I highly suggest hiring him for any photography needs
I have been a client of Joni’s twice! The first time she did our family portraits at Balboa Park and with my then two-year-old son running around and not sitting still (once), she was able to capture many smiling portraits and adorable candids. She was not afraid to get on the floor and in tight spaces to ensure she got great photos of my little one! Second time she did solo photos of my son in and around our home. Joni is very accommodating and has lots of patience when it comes to photographing little ones. She’s also got experience on how to get them to interact with her so they are always looking at the camera! She even was kind enough to take portraits of our Australian cattle mix dog and chihuahua! The dog portraits came out great. Joni is always there to make her clients feel important and she ensures the work is of the highest quality.
Scott has done numerous photo shoots for me of my artwork and also portrait work/headshots for promotional purposes. The quality of his work is always amazing and he's very reasonably priced. At request, he provided multiple file formats and sizes. He also shot a top-notch promotional video about me and my artwork - filmed, edited, transitions, music, the whole deal. It is amazing in terms of technical quality and editorial content. I can't recommend him highly enough!
Maribel took amazing pictures of my 5 year old daughter. She was able to get my daughter acclimated to the photo shoot and captured amazing moments! I highly recommend ArtsyChick Photography.
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.
Patrick has done our family photos twice now and both experiences were fun, effortless, and comfortable. No forced smiles, no cheesy poses or filters...just really great photos of my family. My children both love him and as a result, he has managed to to capture some of my favorite photos of them which is not an easy feat particularly with my daughter who is very camera shy and reluctant and difficult to photograph! Patrick will be our family’s photographer for as long as he is willing which is a testament to how capable and talented he is if you consider that we have a photographer in our family who is willing to do our photos for free 🙈 We love him and the amazing images he takes of our family but his action shots particularly of surfers are the most breath taking. Follow him on Instagram if you ever want to take a mental retreat to the beach. They are truly amazing and calming to look at. @patricksanfordphotography
I have loved being in touch with Alyssa for my big day! She's talented and easy-going. An awesome photographer!
Darryn is awesome! I saw his work at a bridal bazaar and I immediately fell in love with his work. The quality of his pictures are great and just beautiful! My husband and I decided to hire him for our engagement photoshoot and wedding. He worked with us so well and he’s very easy to talk to and to get a hold of. He was very professional and punctual in every meeting and for the events. Whenever I had any questions I would either text him or email him and he would respond immediately. When the time of the engagement photoshoot came I asked If he knew of any good places to take pictures because I didn’t have any in mind and he immediately picked the perfect place! Everything went so smooth. Also, we used Darryn’s Photo booth for my bridal shower! It was a total hit at the party! Everyone loved it! He has bins full of props so you will never get bored of taking pictures! His booth is very well set up and it is very easy to manage! It was very convenient for us to get a photo booth with him. His prices are great. I am very satisfied with his work, professionalism, punctuality and responsiveness. I totally recommend him! Love, Crystal Humphrey
I really wanted to connect with myself again and feel good. Puneet did some lifestyle photographs for me, and I couldn’t be happier with the whole process. He was amazing to work with, made me feel completely comfortable and has a calmness about him that is unmatchable. He was very responsive before the shoot and sent me my edited photos super quick. I would highly recommend him and can’t wait to do another session with him!
Stephanie is fantastic! This was my first time doing a photoshoot, so I was slightly nervous, but she made me feel extremely comfortable (which is very hard to do) and the pictures turned out amazing! She was very accommodating and made sure we got all of the shots on my list even if that meant moving around to a few different locations (in the same area). I tend to have high expectations with most things and Stephanie by far exceeded them. If you're looking to hire a photographer in the San Diego area, then I highly recommend you trying Stephanie!
Lacey was great! Punctual, extremely professional, and provided me with a great set of professional portraits. Very competitive with pricing- excellent value. Recommend!
Jacob was a very friendly and professional photographer. He was setting up 15 minutes before our agreed meet up time. Although i’m not photogenic, he made me feel more at ease and my pictures came out great.
