About

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.

Tom is fun. Tom has an amazing eye for "the Shot." He travelled to Stone Brewery (Escondido) to shoot our engagement session, he endured one of the craziest baseball themed weddings and tailgate parties, he navigated around my grandfather (another photographer at my wedding) with grace and ease. And the pictures - oh the pictures! He posted previews within hours and they are each and every one AMAZING and beautiful. From the traditional to the editorial style - he can do it all, and with great results! And he is one FUN gentleman too - THANK YOU Tom & LADigital photo. I can wholly recommend - and even insist - that you contact Tom for photography services!

We hired Art to photograph a new home listing. Unlike so many photographers for real estate, he actually is willing to talk on the phone before booking the appointment! Our client was extremely pleased with his professionalism and personality. The photographs were received in a timely manner and were exceptional. I highly recommend Art for your photography needs!

Joshua at Monesson Photography took my real estate head shots. Joshua was the first to respond to my inquiry and was prompt the entire time. He was very easy to talk to and knew exactly what I needed. I absolutely loved that he was open to my ideas as well. He also recommended a fantastic hair/make-up artist, Annaliza Galo. He was on schedule when shooting and made me feel at ease the whole time. He was great at advising me with my posture, poses and even my outfits! After the shoot, Joshua took care of my edits so quickly! He really went beyond my expectations. I appreciate Joshua's great sense of humor and his dedication to his work in photography. I look forward to working with him again in the future.

About

My brother got married in a beautiful setting in the remote hills of wine country and the photos were going to be amazing....and wouldn't you guess it, but the photographer that was hired didn't have charged batteries in her camera. She was completely useless. Well the good news is Ron Hall was a guest at the wedding, and being the professional photographer that he is, he doesn't leave home without his video and digital camera equipment. He stepped up to the plate, photographed the wedding party, the procession, and the entire reception including all the speeches. He ended up putting a CD together and distributing it to the married couple and immediate family and it was exactly what we wanted. All the emotion and love on that day came through in the video he put together after saving the day. Ron is extremely talented and knows his equipment well. I would hire him for any professional photography or videography needs without a question. Not to mention, he's funny and he puts people at ease in front of the camera!

Alison was exactly what I was looking for in a photographer. I haven't had much luck in my past headshot shoots with different photographers but Alison has a great eye and will get you the shots you need. Not only is she a talented photographer, but she's also kind, funny, and made me feel completely comfortable. The prices are so affordable which does not comprise the experience. I will always going back to Alison for any updated shots. I also recommend using her hair and make up artist. At first I was choosing to do my own, but I am so glad that I now had her hair and make up stylist do it. They are a team and work together to get the look and feel of the shoot perfect.

I hired Panas to photograph and video record my proposal to my now fiancee. Panas was absolutely incredible to work with. He was extremely professional and is excellent at photography. Panas knows exactly what light and angles will make the pictures look fantastic and his work portrayed this when we saw the thumbnails. He met with me ahead of time and helped me plan exactly how he would be involved and who would be there (from his team). My event could not have been a success without Panas and for that I want to thank him. I would HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Panas for your photography and videography needs in the future.

Where do I begin? Just even meeting them for the first time-they were so professional (they even offered us coffee!). I met with several other photographers, and Matt and Joana were the first to bring samples of pictures and they had GREAT deals. I mean, wedding photography isn't cheap to begin with, but they were fair about everything. Very open to answer questions, too. We had an additional skype meeting closer to the wedding day to go over wedding details and they were so thorough. They reviewed things I had sent over and they were so patient. I dealt with some other vendors who weren't as kind and it actually stressed me out...but not Matt and Joana. They listened. They day OF the wedding, they captured as many moments as possible...and did I mention that they were SO SWEET? They were accommodating to all my requests and they offered suggestions. I really enjoyed their services. If I were to offer one suggestion: it would be to ask in the moment if there are any shots to get. I know that some clients like photographers to be stealthy, but I wanted some additional types of pictures that I forgot to mention in the meeting and it would have been great if joana or matt checked in...but that's just a personal suggestion which may not fit everyone's needs. I guess to find out would be to ask during the Skype sessions if clients want to be more vocal w photographers etc. Anyways, I was so happy I went with Studio Cline. The pictures were great. They are very kind and very fair with pricing. Do not hesitate to go with them!

Jb Jakubek is the best sports, fashion and commercial photographer I have seen in Orange County in a long time. He pays attention to detail. His aesthetic and composition shows in his work. Hi images of full of color and life. Not only is he creative and conceptual he is also a technically sound photographer. He loves to work with his clients and treats every shoot with individual attention and care he feels it needs to make every shot count!

Meeting and hiring Kate as our engagement and wedding photographer was one of the best decisions my (now) wife and I made while planning our recent NYE wedding. We met and spoke with many photographers, but the caliber of Kate's portfolio, her friendly demeanor and ability to answer all our questions made her our top choice. Additionally, we want to highlight her abilities to fully take advantage all environments we were in (e.g. natural light, low light, indoor, nighttime outdoors, etc.) and the speed at which she was able to capture such special moments. Her work is nothing short of impeccable and incredible. There's no reason to hesitate if you're lucky to get to work with Kate. She's AMAZING!

Austin was our photographer for The Twenty Million Minds event Project #CodeTruck, for which Los Angeles middle to high school students took a coding workshop. We asked for a combination of action shots and group shots of the students and #CodeTruck team. Austin's rate is definitely affordable, but he does have some additional fees (i.e. licensing agreement) that you may want to confirm. Austin is at an early point in his photography career, and as a result required some direction with the specific photographs we wished to have taken at the event. While this may have taken some staff time away from the event, we were quite pleased with the photographs that were taken. However, if you are looking to use Austin's photos for media purposes, it is important to provide him with specific direction on composition and framing to get the product you desire. It is always great to support creative professionals and I believe Austin is well-intentioned and receptive to feedback or opportunities for growth. With experience, confidence, and development of strengths I am optimistic about his future as a photographer. Overall, it is very important to weigh time, cost and goals to determine if he will be an appropriate fit.

We all look for great experiences working with professionals in any field, photography especially. To capture moments in time worth sharing with others, reliant on another to see these instances as important as we do, can be a task and frustrating at the very least. With all that being said, there's one photographer I would entrust with my projects, Gianni Neiviller. I managed the set up and implemention for AudioProDB.com's launch at NAMM, in Anaheim CA, earlier this past January. Gianni was our photographer. I stress OUR, as in OUR team photographer. We couldn't have asked for more professional care and expertise with the launch of our new business. From engagement with our guests to the quality of our photos, everything was top notch and we were assured that Gianni could handle this endeavor with no problem. I would recommend Gianni for any of your photography needs. Thank you Gianni for your help and I look forward to using your services and expertise once again very soon! - Eduardo Flores, marketing and brand development specialist.

I spent a whole day working on a photo shoot with Ken. First off, he is super nice, professional, has been working in the industry for years. You get the best of the best, most patient man and delivers amazing work. He goes above and beyond, we scouted for locations, then we went to the studio where he took his time to review over 1,100 photos, to discuss them and their creative value. Made a lifelong client out of me, and will use him for all of my photoshoot needs for business, personal. He has an incredible sense of humor, never judges your decisions and always rolls with the punches. We improvised, took an uber around town, and I never felt rushed. Don't settle with third rate photographers, deal with the BEST, and the best is Ken Wiatrak!

Milla Cochran often attends retreats at Pema Osel Ling retreat center in the Santa Cruz Mountains. She always generously shares her talent with us. I can say that Milla is one of the most outstanding photographers I know. One can sense her open heart in her photography work. Every image she captures truly travels from her kind heart through the camera lens. Absolutely incomparable.

The decision to hire Danielle to photograph our railway's supporters at a recent county commission meeting was rewarded with the most evocative and powerful images we could ever have hoped for. She covered both our group's demonstration on the street and their public remarks before the commission with a thorough and attentive eye for detail and context. There are no second takes when dealing with a live meeting in a pubic forum, but you wouldn't know it from the photos we got back! Danielle was able to capture the narrative of the day and expertly hone in on the emotions of every moment, rendering shots we could scarcely have achieved had we relied on selfies and camera phones. Her photos will be an essential part of our public messaging, and the online gallery links she provided have already helped us to share the events of the day with our friends and followers. Without hesitation, Danielle is a photographer we would recommend to anyone for any event! "Conductor Ryan" / Fillmore & Western Railway

I chose Tania to be the photographer for my wedding (for the ceremony at the beach and for the reception afterwards) and it was the best decision I could have made. Not only she is an extremely cool, fun and wonderful person, but also the pictures were ABSOLUTELY beautiful. I got together with her a month before the wedding and shared my ideas (what we wanted and what we didn’t want). She understood exactly what we expected and executed with taste and professionalism providing us with the most fabulous pictures I could imagine. She was super helpful, efficient, fun, responsible, and even delivered the pictures earlier than I expected. I honestly recommend her, for she is a true artist. If you are not convinced and you want to see some of my pics, ask her for my email and I don’t mind sharing them some and tell you more about our experience with wonderful Tania! Lucia
