I've had three headshot sessions with Adam and each time I've walked away with amazing photos! He's very friendly and between his neighborhood and studio he provides a wide variety of backgrounds for any kind of look. other photographers will over-photoshop your pictures so you are completely flawless and plastic looking. Adam provides touch ups that exentuate your best features and best of all, you still look like you. Adam is always the first person I recommend for any sort of photography needs from portraits to weddings

We needed photos for the cover and interior of a regional magazine, which is published by the nation's largest networking entity for building and construction professionals. We had an extremely tight time frame for booking the photographer, taking the photos and receiving photo edits. Will Hartman with Desert Rose Photography was able to expedite our request at a very reasonable rate, and had no problem managing our very detailed instructions on the execution of the photo shoot. (Also, none of the publisher's representatives attended the photo shoot - Will executed everything on site based on guidance he received via telephone and email.) He arrived early to the location to scope out the best places for outdoor photography, and also worked hand-in-hand with the photo subjects to stage everyone (~25 people) in a variety of settings and locations. Needless to say, Will went above and beyond to deliver photos that were engaging, energetic, and dynamic. It was a real pleasure to work with him. We plan to use him again if the need arises, and would recommend him to anyone else looking for a professional, creative, capable photographer.

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!

Ivan was fantastic! The photos from my bachelorette party turned out perfect and we all had so much fun during the photo session. Ivan was on time, patient with my group of 10 loud ladies and his work was great. I absolutely recommend Creative Vision Photography! Thanks again.

Kelli did a superb job taking photos of our team award lunch in LA. She was punctual—no small achievement considering legendary LA traffic— professional and creative. The photos she took really captured the day’s events and were perfectly composed, exposed and delivered. I highly recommend MacTaggart and Kelli in particular.

Sheryl was the photographer at our wedding, and I cannot say enough about the amazing job she did. Everything from her communication to her professionalism was outstanding. She made everyone at the wedding feel comfortable and at ease. I was so impressed with the little things she did like making sure my dad has his boutonniere on before the ceremony and capturing the moments that I would never have thought of. Above all if you want a photographer to be creative and use her artistic skills to create breathtaking results, then Sheryl is the one!

I would first like to say, I NEVER write reviews but Jami is so great I truly felt like taking the time to share this. If you're looking for an awesome professional photographer that will take amazing photos then Jami is your girl. Not only was she easy to work with, responsive, timely and all around just lovely to deal with - she took the most beautiful photos. She blends right in with the crowd as though she's one of your friends capturing special moments. I loved working with her so much, I've already hired her again for another event. This was my first time using Thumbtack and it was the best because of Jami. I wish I could give her 6 stars for everything.

Dino is a pleasant and creative photographer. He was easy to communicate with and arrived on time. I never felt rushed and he wanted to try another location when I was ready to call it a day. He was right, those photos are fabulous! Besides being a good businessman, his exposure is perfect, focus is crisp, framing is excellent, and I will find it hard to narrow down my choices. I highly recommend Dino and Aloha Photography!

Hiring Attis Photography for our wedding was one of the best decisions my wife and I made. We met with so many photographers, but Attis definitely stood apart from the rest. Anita is extremely organized and will get out of you exactly what you're looking for. Chris takes beautiful photos and has great attention to detail. We hired them for both our engagement photos and our wedding photos, and they did an amazing job on both. If I could go back, I would absolutely hire them again. And I definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.

Thank you Mukaila for being such a great photographer for my son's first birthday! My guests thought that the pictures turned out well. Mukaila communicated well through email with specifics of our party. He also arrived on time and was able to take pictures of all the details of our party like I wanted. He was also able to be inconspicuous when he needed to be to get all the action pictures. Turn around time for the pictures was only a week. That is a lot quicker than a lot of other photographers that I have worked with before. If we ever have another event, I would definitely get a hold of Mukaila again.

Omg hire her for beach pics!! We just took ours at Manhattan Beach near Santa Monica (her suggestion) and they came out stunning. She is so punctual, nice, professional, and had great poses for us. We were running late from horrible traffic and she still waited as gave us our whole session time, and we got a sneak pic of pics the next day, and the rest of the pics soon after. She also helped us with poses. At least give her a call—she’s so warm and caring and a definite pro!

Sasha is not only an exceptional photographer with supreme talent, but an incredible human being with the most kind and warm spirit! She did a photoshoot for my 2 year old's birthday, covering the event as well as doing portraits for our family. From the onset, she was remarkable in every aspect…not only was she responsive and professional but also very accommodating and personable! She spent a long time on the phone with me to discuss the project. I was initially very nervous because my baby had stranger anxiety and is camera shy. Sasha put me at ease right away, sharing ideas about how she would make it a fun for my baby and ease her into it. She was very meticulous in noting all my requirements and very cooperative with all my demands. On the day of the photoshoot, she came early to help us setup and got some props and play things for my baby. I was very touched to see how loving she was with my baby and carried her around to make her feel at ease. Everyone in our family loved her and she made the whole process so seamless. Sasha was also very patient and diligent during the subsequent phase of reviews and edits. I have to admit, I'm not an easy person to please but when I saw the finished deliverables with beautiful pictures and absolutely stunning video, I was floored! Despite the low light condition indoors, her photos came our brilliant and vibrant. Best of all, she made everyone look gorgeous! :) LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her work! Sasha will be our go to person for all our photography needs going forward. I would recommend her whole-heartedly for any events as well as personal and professional photoshoots.

Wow! That’s where I will start. Stephanie is amazing! Period. I decided last minute to propose and was rushing to find someone who was open to my creative and artistic ideas. Stephanie was open and listened and took some of the best photos I have ever seen! Communication, punctuality, professional. I could go on and on. Definitely pick Stephanie, you will not be disappointed. As my mom used to say: “ The proof is in the pudding. “

Catalina was an AMAZING photographer! She was really patient with my friends and me, and she helped us with poses and locations the entire time. She made sure we were all happy with our camera time, and she was very punctual and efficient. Not to mention, we hired her on a whim after our other photographer cancelled last minute. But, everything worked out perfectly. Everyone was extremely happy with the results!

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
