    Hands down best photographer I've ever worked with!! Extremely professional and punctual; and yet also super fun, easy going and enjoyable to work with! Fully recommend to anyone needing ANY kind of photos taken!! We first met with Alex about 10 months before the wedding. He drove all the way up to meet us at a local coffee shop, showed us some of his past work and gave us a quote. He had the best prices and was the most friendly and engaging photographer we had met with so we signed a contracted that day and scheduled an engagement shoot. At the engagement shoot he was energetic and excited. He put my fiance and I both at our ease and spent almost 4 hours taking amazing pictures (he NEVER gets tired), but sunset that day was a bit disappointing and I had wanted some specific "sunset shots" so Alex insisted that we do another shoot in a few months time. Both engagement shoots were included in our total original quoted price! The day of the wedding Alex showed up extra early and spent the next 12 hours taking the most wonderful photos. There are not enough good things to say about Alex - he is kind, focused, talented, professional and AMAZING! I highly recommend Alex to anyone who wants amazing photos of their special event!

    Photography For Our Wedding
    We had a wonderful experience working with Alex! We hired him as our wedding photographer and he threw in a complimentary engagement photo shoot, pretty much a full wedding package all the while accommodating our budget. Alex is very down to earth, patient, and professional. We also liked the fact that his service feels personal, as if a friend was taking our photos. Our family and friends commented we did a good job finding Alex. We would definitely hire him again. Thanks Alex!

    Alex is very good at what he does. He arrived at our music recital an hour before start time and even helped me unload our equipment. He is very knowledgeable and delivered over 300 quality pics for a very good price. We will be working with him in the future.

    We booked Alex to photograph our 40th high school reunion and I would highly recommend him to anyone for their next event. Alex is a delight to work with, always smiling and very pleasant, and he has a great "can do" attitude. Alex took the time to meet with us in person before we had even hired him 3 weeks prior to our event and traveled to our our on site event location in Long Beach just to make sure of what the lighting and layout would be. On the day of our event, Alex arrived 2 hrs early just to set up his equipment and didn't even charge us extra for this. We provided Alex with a pretty extensive list of our schedule of events and the key shots we wanted, and he captured every one of those for us. Alex put extra care and attention to every detail of the photos, and with our large group photos he made sure that everyone could be seen and that everyone was smiling and looking at him at the same time. Alex did a great job capturing the candids we wanted too. Alex took a variety of shots from posed stills, to candids, to large groups, to small groups, and action shots like dancing and people greeting and hugging each other, and did a great job in all contexts. Alex always knew where to be and was always ready at just the right time. We also had hired a videographer for our event, and even the videographer praised Alex on what a great job he did and how Alex took extra care never to block the shots our videographer was filming. We are very happy with our end product photos, they turned out great and Alex edited over 300 photos for us to choose from. Alex also provided each of our 5 committee members with DVDs which had all of the photos he took that night in both high and low resolutions so we could put together a Photo Memory Book for our classmates of our reunion. Alex also set up for us a convenient link to a photo gallery website of our reunion event which provided all our classmates a way to directly order prints of their favorite individual shots in various sizes. Alex was also very prompt at responding to our emails, texts, and phone calls whenever we had questions, and was easy for us to reach. Alex overall is an exceptional professional, with reasonable pricing, with a great attitude, and I would definitely use him again for any of our next events!

    Alex recently photographed my wedding this past Saturday. He is absolutely amazing. He definitely goes above and beyone to make sure we get some great shots. He took our engagement photos a few months back as well and they came out absolutely beautiful. Many people commented on how great the photos came out thanks to Alex! He made sure we got all the photos we wanted at our wedding. He has a great and friendly personality that helps you stay comfortable during a stressful situation. I couldn't have been happier with my experience with Alex as our photographer. We will definitely give Alex a call any time we may need a photographer again.

    I hired Alex to photograph my parents' 50th wedding anniversary celebration, and I could not be more happy with his work. He was on time and stayed until everyone left the party. He was very friendly and fun to have around. Everyone loved him. He produced absolutely wonderful pictures - portraits, candids, and great shots of the venue/decoration. When I need a photographer in the future, I will definitely contact Alex.

    Alex worked non-stop to get the best pictures possible for our wedding. He is very talented and made us and our guests feel like stars. There was not one guest who didn't come up to us praising him. On top of his great professionalism, Alex is also a kind and wonderful person. The pictures: Amazing!

    I am very happy with our photos of our 200 guest party. Alex was engaged, professional, accommodating and a pleasure to have at our party. He showed up early and stayed late. Got photos back to me quickly. Will definitely have him photograph another event.

    Alex Solca is possibly the friendliest and most professional photographer I've worked with. He's very easy going, works hard, and the end result was more than what I was expecting. His reputation most definitely precedes him. One of the best!
  • Andy M. Nov 3, 2013
    It's been 4 years that i have the honor to have Alex as a personal photographer for my music business and for my private life...He is the best, not only in a professional way but mostly as a person! At the same time he is a crazy one, so be ready to have fun during your set! A great experience!
  • Rob N. Oct 31, 2013
    Alex has done many shoots for my company over the years. He most recently did a shoot for me this past Saturday, and he was fantastic as usual. Went way beyond the call of duty, and was a joy to deal with. Most importantly, the images came out perfect. I can't recommend him highly enough.
  • Mark Z. Oct 31, 2013
    Been shooting with Alex for over 25 years. Absolutely brilliant!! Whether the standard industry required shots, or the creative, he is your guy. Very professional and an extremely hard worker. Will go the extra 2 miles for his clients. A must!!!!!
