At the very last minute, my daughter discovered she needed a professional headshot for her med school applications. Adam made him self available within 24 hours - drove from his studio to our home in Westwood. Arrived on the dot, ready to work - with all of his professional equipment. He wasted no time in scouting out the best locations (inside and out), as far as background and lighting. Within one hour, he had set up 3 locations, and had taken over 100 digital shots. He had the proofs ready to review within 4 hours and, when we finally made our choice (a hard one because they were all so good), he offered to professionally re-touch (fly-away hair, wayward shadows, a zit or two!, and more) free of charge. Totally happy with our choice to have him do the job. He's a dad, too, so he has a well-rounded take on life and an easy demeanor. A+ Five-stars! He would be great for family portraits, as well.

Brad was outstanding in every way! He responded to emails quickly, came to the location an hour early to scout out good shots, creative in our poses, and obviously passionate about photography. In addition, his turn around of photos were amazing- same day! Thank you for a memorable family portrait!

We are new to California so we knew no one to do newborn and family portraits. Found Kelli on here and she arrived today and we were so pleased . She was so creative and sweet , made us all feel comfortable and handled my 19 month like a pro! She spent so much time with all four of us and made sure that there was not one pose or moment that we missed ! I would hire her again in an instant and can't wait to see the finished product!

I'm writing this review to commend Danielle Penn on a outstanding job well done. I recently utilized Danielle's services for my family portraits. Danielle showed up on time and just delivered it! I was so impressed by her amazing work and how she works well with natural light to produce the exact pictures I was envisioning. They came out perfectly. I'm amazed at her ability to capture the moment and her uncanny eye for detail. This young lady is truly a artist and I look forward to using her for any and all photography needs I highly recommend her to anyone. Real pro 5 stars!!! Thank you so much Danielle.

Jami is a TRUE STORYTELLER and artist. She was able to PERFECTLY capture the essence of my corporate event into a magically memorable video. It is one thing to technically be able to produce a flawless video, which Jami did, but it is another thing entirely to be able to reproduce the warmth, emotion, joy and heart of each individual captured on camera and THAT is what puts Jami in a class by herself. She is just that good. Oh and did I mention that she is extremely easy to work with, no ego, as transparent as they come and her only concern is that she delivers you a final product that is exactly what you want - imagine that, old fashioned values of delivering more than her client could ever have expected!! She is THE BEST.

Dino did some portrait photos for me to use for my office's website, and he worked magic with what is usually a not so photogenic subject. He knew how to bring the best out in me while all the while being laid back, genuine and professional. I highly recommend his services. You will come away with a good experience and great photos.

A true artist and conceptualist but never at the expense of what the client wants to achieve. I’ve seen so many different styles of photography from Amanda and no matter what the project there is supreme artistry and composition. She illicits a naturalism and authenticity from her subjects with ease and sensitivity. When I need a photographer, there is no question, Amanda.

Yanira consistently went out of her way to make sure I was satisfied and pleased with everything during my big day, and afterwards. I am so grateful Yanira was there literally the entire day from 9am-10pm. She is a shining example of professionalism and creativity. Every image of our wedding jumps off the page, as if coming to life. Yanira has a way of blending the authenticity and "realness" of people with magical auras. Lastly, within two minutes of meeting Yanira you know she truly cares about you and your event, and will be there to not only capture your day, but to celebrate in it with you. That is special and unique. I love everything that is Yanira Scalise Photography. She is a rare gem. I would definitely work with her again in the future (family portraits), and I recommend her for anyone out there who wants to be wowed by their wedding photos!

Stephanie was superb! Her sense of humor and kindness really put me at ease almost as if we had been friends and were having fun with portraits. I have already referred her to friends who are getting married and will continue to do so because she went above and beyond for my husband and I. We are so happy with our pictures.

Forrest did a commercial job for and his attitude and work were fantastic. He made the subject feel relaxed, his energy was great and the shoot was professional and fun. End result, beautiful and artistic images. He put in substantially more time and effort that I could possibly have expected. I just hire him again, to shoot my personal headshots and portrait photos for my professional use. Forrest made me feel totally at ease and he made the shoot fun. Love the photos and hight recommend him. He is a pleasure to work with and a motivated and talented photographer. Great photos, responsive and fast results and super professional. I highly recommend him on all levels.
