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.
We needed photos for the cover and interior of a regional magazine, which is published by the nation's largest networking entity for building and construction professionals. We had an extremely tight time frame for booking the photographer, taking the photos and receiving photo edits. Will Hartman with Desert Rose Photography was able to expedite our request at a very reasonable rate, and had no problem managing our very detailed instructions on the execution of the photo shoot. (Also, none of the publisher's representatives attended the photo shoot - Will executed everything on site based on guidance he received via telephone and email.) He arrived early to the location to scope out the best places for outdoor photography, and also worked hand-in-hand with the photo subjects to stage everyone (~25 people) in a variety of settings and locations. Needless to say, Will went above and beyond to deliver photos that were engaging, energetic, and dynamic. It was a real pleasure to work with him. We plan to use him again if the need arises, and would recommend him to anyone else looking for a professional, creative, capable photographer.
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 just had family portraits taken with Ivan from Creative Vision and the work was incredible. He was really good with our baby and 9 year old. He is extremely meticulous about the smallest of details and each of the pictures will turn out far better then you would expect. I would recommend him for any event and I will definitely use his services again.
I hired Marc for a family portrait. I had never hired a photographer other than at a "chain" studio. As this was a new experience, I had lots of questions. Marc couldn't have been more patient in answering them. He was very courteous and professional as well as very flexible and no rush or pressure. Our pictures turned out great-I would highly recommend Marc to anyone.
He showed up on time and deliver the pictures in a short period of time, really good photographer. Thanks for our pictures and for the bonus ones
We hired Alan to take a family portrait for our mothers 80th birthday. It was a special day. We are a large family (30+) from 6 months to 80!! When we arrived at the location Alan was already there getting things ready for us. He was so patient with us and so very professional. He took his time to make sure that he got lots of different group shots with the different families. When he delivered the finished product I was totally amazed. My mother was so happy when we presented it to her. He really made her 80th Birthday a day she will never forget. Thanks Alan!!
Sheryl was wonderful! We had very high winds and excited children and she worked her magic to get us awesome pictures of great family memories, thank you Sheryl!
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.
I highly recommend Sustudios for your family's photo shoot! Susan was great and I am in love with the pictures! And that is saying a lot because I usually don't like any pictures with me in them. Now I have so many pictures of my whole family that I actually love! Susan was so nice and still professional. She even helped me prepare by sending me tips for outfit selection and ideas for locations. You will be happy with Sustudios!!
We began using Joanne as our family photographer when our son was 6 months old (in Hawaii) and I'm so happy we did!!! She's help capture his precious infant/toddler years in her Watch Me Grow & Watch Me Grow Some More package which we all LOVE looking through now that he's almost 6 years old. Joanne is AMAZING with infants & toddlers! She's patient and sweet, and kids love her! We've even used her as our photographer for our preschool and the images were incredible! Our favorite photo session with her was a couple of months ago at Disneyland! She captured the essence of our favorite times at the place "where dreams come true."
We needed a event photographer for our 40th anniversary celebration. It was held at South Coast Winery & Resort in Temecula, Ca. The event was four hours. Landi Maduro and her team worked with our daughter to capture this special event for our family and friends. What impressed me about Landi and her team was that they were on time, very professional, but what made our day was the "personal touch" in how they went about capturing this special time for us. The quality of their work is just awesome. The extra added feature and quite the hit with our family and guests was the "Photo Booth". The pictures were developed instantly and was a nice little memento gift from us for our guests. There isn't anything I could think of that wasn't already fulfilled from our experience with Bluechild Entertainment. We would most definitely recommend and hire Landi and her team again. Thank-you Debbie Williams Poway, Ca
We had vacation in Souther California and hired Elena for a family photoshoot. She did great portrait photos of our family and we love the outcome. We even was able to print those pictures and hang it in our living room. I would recommend her to anyone who looking for great family photos.
Jess is hands down the sweetest photographer I have ever met. She really understood what I was looking for when it came to my engagement photos. She took amazing candid photos, as well as portrait photos that I will forever cherish. Thank you Jess for the hardwork and effort you put in!!! Highly highly highly recommend!!!!!!
I am a hairstylist and I have worked with many photographers on photo-shoots and sets. Other photographer's and agency didn't take me as seriously as a freelance artist until I showed them the pictures that Hailley and I collaborated on. She is amazing; all of her pictures tell a story. The wedding pictures not only beautiful but capture a story of love and romance. Her editorial work captures certain energies from a model that some photographs can't get. If you want a feeling, or a story frozen in the moment of time by the click of a button I highly recommend Hailley. She does whatever it takes to get a picture done right, and her lighting is nice. She is very creative and she will push the limits of you're into that. Great Photographer! Great Gal in General!
We've had some bad experiences through close friends and family, so we were hesitant to use a professional that we've never worked with before. I scoured yelp and other sites and just couldn't find the style I wanted. With just a couple of days before the event, we decided last minute and couldn't be happier. I am so happy to discover Mukaila, he was fast to respond, worked with my budget and was extremely professional. We wanted someone that can capture those candid and natural poses, so we hired Mukaila for our son's first birthday and he did an amazing job! He was professional, responsive, and delivered the pictures exactly a week after the party. He arrived early and stayed a little bit later to accomodate our extra wishes. I also loved that he was able to capture some close and personal photos of my family, so it was like a two in one event! Everyone was so impressed and complimented that he was able to take the pictures while remaining in the background, it is like having your own paparazzi. Overall, we would highly recommend him and will be using him for future events.
Amazingly talented photographer! 10/10!
I would highly recommend Stephen as a photographer for any event. He was extremely timely. Stephen was there 15 minutes ahead of time and provided pictures to us within 24 hours. I also felt his prices were very reasonable for the quality of the product. Thank you Stephen for capturing the memories of my mom's 60th birthday.
Dakota is a great photographer! He doesn't just take photos to capture a good image, he takes photos that will connect with you personally. Something that really pulls on your personality and he's great at getting the best of you. He's fun, so you'll enjoy the entire shoot.
He was the photographer for our pre wedding photos, the photo quality was awesome, picked a great location for us, totally happy with it.
I met Michele Goane in 2006 when I was looking for a professional photographer to do a pregnancy photo shoot with my first baby. Since then, she has “captured” every family occasion including pregnancy, birth, baby, family portraits and headshots. She has become an integral part of our family over the last decade, especially since majority of the photos on display in our house have been ones taken by her. She is so incredibly easy and fun to work with that photos are not just photos…they are priceless memories for me and my family. We have referred her to other family members, friends and they are just as impressed with her professionalism, easy going attitude and ability to “capture” the perfect shot. Plus, she works around your schedule and is very reasonable in price. The value of her packages are by far the best you’ll find. Look no further and book Captured Forever Photography!
