I am extremely satisfied with the results that JJ has completed for my family portraits. My initial request was that I was looking for a newborn photographer, and while JJ himself is not a newborn photographer he certainly helped capture the precious moments of my little newborn baby. I was also very satisfied to see the artistic results and some of the photographs captured knowing what he worked with here inside my home to what he had produced. JJ was extremely patient with my family and myself especially considering we had a newborn baby who would not fall asleep he didn't make me feel rushed in anyway whatsoever and was more than willing to wait in order to capture the moments we were looking for. I would recommend JJ again for anybody thank you so much for making a wonderful experience.

Amina is an all around great person and is very reliable and easygoing. In the past I struggled with photographers who weren't trustworthy, so shooting with Amina was such a treat! Amina also has great, artistic vision and a good sense of timing which definitely reflects in the work that she does. I give this girl 2 thumbs up!!!!

I have worked with Al Unger both as a Character Male Model and as a Photographers Assistant. on many occasions. The most recent job we worked together was the Miss California United States pageant 2013 in Camarillo, CA. We photographed the contestant’s personal and candid shots, including the pre-judgment entertainment shows they participated in. Here is an example of Al’s eye and instinct for fashion photography. After meeting with all the contestants, he privately shared with me his pick of the winner with me, and he was right! It was the beautiful Ms. Ventura, Christina Meredith! Al is my mentor, and is patient to teach me to be a better male model and a better photographer. What impresses me is that he excels in all categories of photography: Events, Weddings, Ba and Bar Mitzvahs, Fashion photography, plus Family portraits. Anything you want, he can do. He is constantly photographing to hone his skills as a photographer. You would probably not see credits for his, magazine landscapes, actor portfolio photos, and stock photography, but he is a driving force in the photography field.

We really had a photographers nightmare. We had 7 mirrors and 7 pictures with LED lights around the frames and a very cramped space to work in. We were not able to hang the items on the wall so Gary got a table and some bricks from the yard and set the items on the bricks and leaned them slightly against the wall. This all took so much work by Gary and his assistant to get the angle and the light just perfect, but their patience never ran out. The tragedy did not end there. The LED lights cast a blue shadow on the 7 pictures when developed. Somehow Gary found a way (again more time, patience and expertise) to remove the blue shadow. The pictures of the 14 items are truly beautiful! Gary did an outstanding job under the worst of conditions. Very, very pleased.

I am a professional model and have worked with many professional photographers over the years. Juliet Peel is an AMAZING photographer with an OUTSTANDING assistant Freddy! I shot for 4 hours with them at Laguna Beach, the location Juliet suggested, which was PERFECT! I received over 500 digital photos on disk. The photography is so GOOD I am having great trouble deciding which ones to use! Juliet and Freddy are totally professional, courteous, punctual and friendly! I felt very comfortable and they are a pleasure to work with. Her fees are extremely reasonable and much less than many other professional photographers. The quality of her work exceeded my expectations. What an UNBELIEVABLE value! I give Juliet Peel Photography the highest possible recommendation and I will be working with her again! Thank you Juliet and Freddy! You ROCK! -MRL

We Hired Caralyn and Harrison to take some outdoor family photos for our Christmas cards. I cannot recommend them enough! They were very flexible with meeting us at a location, and once we were there they were a joy to work with. They are very personable, warm, outgoing, and talented. As a team they work well to help guide and direct the photo shoot, and we were especially pleased with their creative suggestions for photos. All in all, they exceeded our expectations both during the photo shoot and afterwards once the photos were delivered to us. We can't to have them take next year's Christmas card photos!

We recently used the Life Event Photographer, Jeffery Lee, to photograph four young children (all aged 7 and under) for their grandparents 50th anniversary gift. Jeffery traveled to us which was so helpful. He worked with patience and kindness as the children became restless during the shoot. He used his experience to create memorable pictures, as well as was open to suggestions from us! He captured color and lighting that was bright and beautiful. Far better than anything we could have captured. Jeffery clearly had training and professional experience, evident by the quality often finished pieces, the equipment he used, and multiple techniques. This isn't just his hobby- this is his passion and he is very skilled in it. He was always immediately responsive and quickly edited the photos, had them available for online viewing, and was even able to quickly turn around the final prints just in time for the anniversary party! (Not all the children live in CA and he worked within the travel times of the out of state child to ensure a successful shoot and timely gift!!) It was such an easy and relaxed experience for us- the parents! We cannot recommend Jeffery or Life Event Photographer highly enough! He far exceeded our high expectations!!! So pleased and thrilled and can't wait for future opportunities to use him!!!!

About

This probably sounds weird but I would probably go back to Greg again even if the photos had turned out mediocre. He’s just such a fun and funny person to hang out with and his calm easygoing manner just made me feel so relaxed--which is the opposite of how I usually feel when being photographed. And his studio is right at the beach so that also made the whole vibe add up to a big stress reliever, nothing like shooting with the sound of the waves. His furry assistant is also one of the cutest, sweetest dogs I’ve ever met. And the photo portraits, that I’m using for acting and social media, are the best ever taken of me, so you add it all up and I have to highly recommend Greg!

Karin Photography is an outstanding example of professionalism. She is the official APEX Academy photographer for our school portraits, senior portraits, panoramic pictures, ID's, school dances and graduations. Karin captures the true character of the students in the pictures she has taken. The quality of pictures and the care she takes with our school is why we continue to use Karin Photography. She works within our budget and offers creative ideas for pictures. My 18 years of experience working with school photographers brings me to the conclusion that Karin is the real deal. Use her once and you'll never go any where else.

About

Since I started Luminary Photo about 8 years ago, I have photographed a wide range of subjects, such as weddings, celebrities, places and fashion. I have donated my time to charity organizations where I captured Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dick Van Dyke and Randy Newman with my camera. My work has been published, and I am the photo editor for Namak magazine. What I love most is photographing weddings. It is the greatest fun you can have as a photographer. I love participating in the start of a brand new family. With each wedding I shoot, I am reminded of my own marriage. Every wedding reminds me how much Jodi and I mean to each other. Jodi also has a keen interest in photography and has a natural way with the camera. As a team, we believe in creating photographs that captures the emotion of our client's wedding day. We consider our pictures to be the family's very first heirloom. We work with the bride and groom to capture the year of planning that goes into creating a perfect wedding. We also capture family moments at special events, or help you create family portraits that you love. We are experts with having people feel at ease and are especially good at photographing children. We also work with actors and actresses to create natural and beautiful headshot portraits. We would love to work with you to create a package that fits your needs, whether they include weddings, portraits or any other type of photography. Please enjoy the photos, and we look forward to speaking with you soon.

About

Kai Streets welcomes you to an urban style of creating images known to me as Silence...amongst the beautiful sunsets, white sand beaches, magnificent skies, extravagant flowers, full moons, landscapes of mountains and rivers, lies a "complete silence". Neglected tunnels, urban infrastructures, bridges, architecture, ruins, under paths, freeways, urban fragments, decay, rust, city streets and abandonment, all are unappreciated, ignored and neglected. My photographic vision is to give this "silence" a voice, and let the image speak as loud as it needs too! Creating images is my purest form of self-expression. I see it as a true art form and have the utmost respect for its history and growth. I started off in the digital world of photography, then transitioned to the film world. This is pretty backwards for most photographers, but there is a method to this madness. In order to understand where photography was going, I had to understand it in the present. But in order for me to progress, I had to develop a strong understanding and knowledge of the rich history and culture of photography through film. This is where I learned composition, framing, the technical aspects, the relationship between ISO, shutter speed, and Aperture, etc. I then began to realize that I have the ability to direct the viewers eyes to what, when, and where I want them to look. Once I saw it in its essence, film photography, and motions pictures became the backbone of my growth and development into a Fine-Art Image and Film Maker.
