We hired Gabriel Hernandez for our wedding. After talking to other photographers I decided to hire him because is a person easy to talk to, gives good ideas of what places are good to take the pictures. I was concern about the time and if the pictures of the ceremony would come out nice because it was in the afternoon, he help out taking the necessary equipment. He was on time for our first meeting and we talk about our expectations, he made things much easier for us. For our wedding he got there early, he took very nice pictures before, during and after. We felt very confortable with his service, he is very helpful and easy to work with.

Elena was truly amazing to work with - I had kind of a particular engagement plan that had a lot of moving pieces but she was totally upbeat and willing to go along. She totally kept a surprise from my fiance who didnt realize that we were in an engagement session. Additionally, the photographs were really great and Elena did a good job of getting the finished photos back to me very quickly. I liked all of the natural light that we used in our pictures and she really did capture the candid moments very well. Highly highly recommend Elena to anyone looking for a photographer and hope to work with her another time I am in San Diego :)

I had an awesome overall experience with Wasio faces! Sasha and Yaneck are wonderful and really made my first experience getting headshots taken a fun and professional one! They made me feel so comfortable and at home as well. If you are looking for professional photographers either for weddings, headshots or any other event, I highly recommend Wasio!

I met Debra through a mutual friend and I could not have been any more pleased than I was with her as my wedding photographer. She's very professional and has a gift for creating amazing photos. Her creativity shines through each photo she captures. I have already recommended her to all my friends who are planning their weddings. Her work is artwork.

Jesse and his team were highly professional and accessible leading up to our event and throughout the night. We had two photographers total; one at the photo booth with lighting and one roving the party. this was a perfect set up for what we required. Will definitely book Jesse next time my company comes to town for a party!

Working with Dan was an amazing experience for me and my family. He was extremely professional at all times and had great feedback on our pose ideas. He was curious when our child was unruly and patient while we got our son back under control. By far, Dan was the perfect photographer. We will most certainly be contacting him again when we want more family photos.

If you are looking for photographers look no further! Dia and her husband are true professionals who created wonderful memories for us. They braved the rain for our wedding day, all while still taking truly wonderful photos. They made every effort to please our timeframe and we couldn’t have asked for more. When we head back to Huntington Beach for more photos we now have found our photographers. Thank you guys once again

Christina & Jake made this year's family photo session a wonderful, hassle free experience -- which can be challenging when a 5 year boy is involved! We don't live in California, so I was initially stressed about the time involved to research photographers & their styles in addition to a location that would be unique. From the initial request for info all the way through receiving the portrait package -- they were extremely responsive, amazing & were very thoughtful in their location recommendations based on what I was looking for (even though I didn't really know what I was looking for). In person, they immediately made us all feel at ease and made it a fun experience. The pictures turned out AMAZING ...and they sent them to me the next night -- UNBELIEVABLE turnaround time! I would highly recommend them; in fact I have already told my friends who live in the SD area about them. We would definitely use them again!!!!

I was in a pinch. The two photographers that I normally use to listing photos done were booked way in advance. I had two options to take my own photos and replace them when I got professional shots done or find another photographer. These days most buyers beginning their home search on the internet so to me….you only have one time to make a first impression. I had to find another photographer. A friend of mine told me to check out Thumbtack. I did exactly that. Then, I went on line and research a few photographers and their website that I found on Thumbtack. I went with Brad Anderson and Architectural Photography, Inc. I was not disappointed. He arrived introduced himself to me and my Seller and got right down to business. The finish product was awesome!!!! My Seller said, “I can’t believe that is my house….it is so cute.” I would definitely both use him again and recommend him.

Maria went beyond helping us capture a very special moment in our lives, she helped pick the exact spot, the manner in which it happened and brought the champagne for afterwards. My birthday surprise to my girlfriend was a trip to San Diego. Unbeknownst to her I was planning my wedding proposal for that trip. We had never been to San Diego before and Maria went out of her way to help choose the best location for the proposal (A particular spot on Sunset Cliffs). I wanted to capture this moment with a professional photographer but I also wanted it to be a surprise. Maria was willing to act as if she was at the spot taking photos to build her own portfolio and if we were willing to be captured in a few. After some initial pictures she had my now fiancé turn toward the water where I was able to get down on my knee and Maria prompted her to turn back around. It was perfect!! In addition to all that she went the extra mile and bought a bottle of champagne (with her own money) for afterward with cups that said 'She Said...' 'Yes'. That was never in the plan she just did it! The pictures turned out amazing. My fiancé was(is) in shock and was very surprised. Couldn't have asked for a better result. So in conclusion if you want a engagement planner, actress, professional photographer, and all around great person I highly recommend Maria Lozano.

My photographer was out of town, and I needed a sub fast. Mario was right there, did a great job, and was a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Mario to anyone in need of a professional photographer. Quality, professionalism, great service, and just a real nice guy are what you can expect... Anthony B.

Verified review

Joni Connor is not only a true artist, but a true professional. I can see the care, and time she puts in even before her shoots. She scoped out the area a day before hand, making sure to note just the perfect lighting, and allowed time for the tone of her photos to settle in her mind before actually performing her craft. Joni did a phenomenal photo shoot for me last year for my Chinese Medicine -acupuncture and herbal practice. The quality of the photos is exquisite, she understands texture and mood. I was so happy with the results, that I even received a patient out of one of my business Instagram posts! If you want a talented, thorough, dedicated, accommodating and professional photographer who possesses true artistry , I would contact Joni. I was very satisfied with her work and would recommend her to anyone!

One of the keys to successfully selling a home for top dollar is getting numerous buyers through a home. One of the ways we do that here at The Joles Group is to have great photographs both online and in print. This is where Scott comes in. He never fails to make the homes I list look there absolute best, no matter what the price point is. The proof of just how good he is, is how quickly the homes I list sell. I consider Scott an integral part of my team of professionals. My clients love his work and so do I. He is by far one of the best real estate photographer/videographers in San Diego County. If you are looking for someone who gives their highest and best. Who will only put out the best quality of product then you need to hire Scott Carmella.

I hired Puneet to do a shoot for my business. He was very responsive, professional and artistic. It was so fun working with him and seeing the different ways he was highlighting my products. When I received my online gallery, I was in love. I couldn’t believe how amazing the photos turned out.. and with such quick turn around. I will definitely be hiring him again with my next batch of products.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
