I contacted Adam Southard for new theatrical headshots. After reviewing several quotes and talking with potential photographers, I was most impressed with Adam's portfolio and his quick turn around time to answer my questions. Because I needed so many different looks, I also needed a photographer with a great eye and who could help me get the shots I needed (all in one shoot). I signed up for the headshot package - 6 looks for $300. I arrived to the shoot hair and makeup ready and had a friend who assisted me with the photos. Adam was very friendly to us both and I know immediately that the shoot would go well. Adam is based out of a home studio, so he has different backdrops and lighting inside his living room studio. It is a very comfortable atmosphere, again, making it much easier to get great shots. For each of the six different looks Adam took some inside the studio and then we went outside for a different lighting and feel. For this reason I feel I got such a great array of looks in a relatively short shoot! Following the photo shoot I received a dropbox file of all of my photos, in roughly three hours. I reviewed the photos with my agent and we selected twelve that were best for retouching. Adam immediately touched up the photos and sent them to me via dropbox. I had a few other finicky things I needed fixed in the photos (as per agents' request) and Adam very graciously fixed these and sent them back to me the following day. I came away with a great selection of photos that I can use for diverse roles/work. I give Best La Headshots/ Adam Southard 5 stars and fully recommend him to any and all actors. He is an outstanding photographer and also very kind and easy to work with (this is not always the case with photographers!). You will be very happy with the results!

Dayvid was great to work with for my daughter's quinceañera . I researched a lot of photographers and he is the only one that made me feel comfortable enough to book without meeting him since I live out of state. He showed up on time was very easy to talk to and gave me a great product. I would definitely use him for my other daughter if he is still around.

I can't say enough about Ivan! He captured my son and daughter-in-laws wedding and reception better then we could have imagined! After receiving the photos, we all gathered and watched a slide show and re-lived all of the beautiful and fun moments, as well as moments some of us missed, but Ivan captured! He is an incredible photographer and a very professional and kind man! I look forward to using him again in the future, and I highly recommend both his photography excellence as well as his reasonable fee's!

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!

Nona is hands down one of the best photographers our family has ever worked with! Very professional and extremely good at what she does. We had to reschedule d/t the bipolar Houston weather and she worked well (and FAST) to get everything done, EVEN had a few pics ready in less than 24hrs!! I only wish we could've gotten the remaining photos a little sooner as a small project I was working on was delayed (and so many were so good!). To be fair, she delivered on her original ETA AND photos were done just before the holidays, so we know she was very busy. I would absolutely recommend her to everyone I know, our pictures have gotten rave reviews from family and friends!

MacTaggart Media worked with my organization during a three day conference in San Diego and everyone with our company was impressed with her professionalism and the high quality of her work. Over the years, I have engaged photographers all around the country for corporate events and Kelli MacTaggart is the best I've ever hired.

Tom is an exceptional photographer! He is very kind and has terrific qualities that stand out in his work. Aside from the amazing photographs that he takes the quality that sets him apart from other photographers is that he listens to the client. Often photographers take control in a way that doesn't necessarily produce the photographs of your choice. Tom doesn't do that. He asks questions of your wants and desires, and prepares for it. Before finding Tom I crossed off about ten other photographers who came across as arrogant, and very pushy. Tom works for you! He does the shoots the way you want them done. I hired Tom to do a maternity and newborn shoot. It was by the far one of the best experiences that I've had with a photographer. We discussed the locations prior to the shoots, and it was so fun and easy. I was very impressed by how personable Tom is. I felt as if it was a friend doing these shoots. Don't waste your time and money on photographers who pop up first on google search. Hire someone who is actually Good!

I worked with Amina Touray when shooting my album cover in May 2013, which ended up with a NAACP Image Nomination! We shot outside in Pasadena during 3-4 hours and I felt very comfortable and relaxed in her presence. Amina and her make up artist were on time, ready for me and listened to my concerns and specific needs regarding the make up and angles of the shooting my body. I was very impressed with her way of giving me instructions and feedback, which helped me get what I wanted-the perfect pic for an album cover. The only thing that could have been better, was the area to get my make up done at, but that's more of a convienience issue than a must. Amina is by far one of the most talented photographers I've worked with, and I've since done 2 more shoots with her, as well as purchased her services for 2 friends of mine, so that they could get to feel like a superstar for a day, like I did.

John is Awesome. Very professional. Very motivated. You can tell that he loves what he does & that makes it better for whoever he's working with. He did a photoshoot for me & the outcome was amazing. He's also very prompt to get my pictures back to me (which is a relief when I've had photographers take months without any communication). Overall, I love him & his work.

I put out a thumbtack request for a photographer the night before my wedding anniversary in a last minute effort to try to give my wife the gift of family pictures for out anniversary. Due to my last minute request I was sure no photographers would be able to come out the very next day. Within 2 minutes of me submitting the thumbtack request Rachel actually called me on the phone and said she would love to come out the very next day and take our family pictures! Rachel was so accommodating and even was answering text message questions I was sending until 11:00 P.M. that night! The day of my anniversary I surprised my wife with a beautiful little family pictures certificate that Rachel had made custom for me the night before. Rachel met up with us that afternoon for the photo shoot and she even drove all the way up Big Cottonwood Canyon where we wanted the photos done. Rachel's patience with our screaming kids was amazing and her professionalism was unsurpassed. Rachel also has an amazing eye for art and photography and thought of some amazing ways and ideas to capture some truly amazing moments of our family. She really captured the relationships our family shares instead of just pictures of our family staring at the camera smiling. I HIGHLY recommend Rachel. Thanks Saints Photography!!!

I hired Elizabeth for my daughter's newborn photoshoot when she was 7 days old. Elizabeth was very responsive (first photographer of 3 to get me a quote and responded very quickly to any questions I had. She was on time, very professional and the pictures turned out great and were very representative of what was on her online portfolio. She had a variety of props and blankets to use in the photos as well. She was great with my daughter even when she was fussy and knows how to calm a crying newborn. She also had a very quick turnaround per our request for edited photos and our photo gallery. The photo gallery provided was very easy to navigate.

Denise is fantastic. It's clear that she's been honing her craft for a long time and the results speak for themselves. She took many, many shots and gave great ideas for which poses would work best. Then she had me pick my favorites and did an excellent touch up job on them. I would highly recommend Denise for headshots or any other type of portrait photography.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
