Ariel was patient, professional and calm for our family photo shoot despite two kids under age 2 presenting several challenges. He was warm and adaptive and a trooper in getting the kids to sit still and coax them into getting their pics taken. It was a challenging shoot but he kept his calm and tried several different times to get us great photos. We will definitely call him again!Sep 1, 2019Verified
The photoshoot with Ariel was a blast and pictures look amazing! Helped pick out my shirts based on what would look best for the background. Also really good value and reasonably priced compared to other photographers for same quality. Highly recommend!!May 30, 2019Verified
Ariel recently took photographs for my family's huge family reunion. They turned out great due to his amazing skill at coordinating 33 people for the group photos. He did an awesome job and everyone loved the photos. I would recommend his photography skills for any event, big or small. :-)Sep 8, 2018VerifiedAriel Palencia Photography's reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?The fees are not set in stone. As with all the different needs of my clients the prices can be adjusted slightly depending on the needs and wants. For purposes of Thumbtack it requires a starting pointing.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to ask a series of questions from new clients and get to know what they envision as their end product. If I know what their hobbies are, likes and dislikes it is easier to create a look or a more customized photo session.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?A.S. In Photography
