From my first inquiry about the project to delivering our finished photos, I found Jessica to be a true first-class professional. Even my skeptical husband (who didn't think we needed professional photographers for a family shoot) was blown away with the photos and my entire family of 5 truly feel that we hit the "photographer jackpot" when we found Jessica and Bobby. Thank you for listening to our needs and for making us feel very comfortable during the shoots at Sunset Cliffs. My children loved the time you both spent with them and how you added some special creative magic to make some playful pictures for us. We really appreciate how you were also so responsive after the shoot, and for delivering our photos within a 3 day turnaround. We are definitely enjoying digitally viewing our family and individual photos now, but the hard part is selecting which photos of the many we all love to be "printed or framed." Bottom line, we are confident Jessica and Bobby will also exceed your expectations like they did ours. Your overall experience will be nothing short of remarkable.

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.

Laura was WONDERFUL! I could not have asked for a better photographer for my beautiful outdoor wedding. She was available last minute and for a great price. She captured every moment of that special day. From me getting ready to the night ending with everyone celebrating, she took so many beautiful pictures. Laura worked very well with us and was very genuine and sweet. She cares about making sure she gets as many great pictures as she can in the amount of time she has. I would definitely recommend her to others.

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

I needed some professional photos for my LinkedIn account and WASIO photography was the perfect place. Sasha and Yaneck are two very talented photographers. I felt their humble presence created such an inviting atmosphere which made it easy and comfortable to be in front of the camera. Both of these photographers really take time to capture their client's personality. I appreciated their attention to detail; they understood that the smallest of details such as the position of a hand can improve the overall photo. I was very impressed with the level of skill and concentration that went into each photo. I really enjoyed my experience with WASIO photography and I know you will too.

We needed a product photographer,which is a big enough challenge by itself. But we ALSO needed an ART GLASS product photographer for our new e-commerce website. There are not many of those around. We needed approximately 1200 pix and they all needed to be perfect. Clay came in after the first photographer self-destructed. He brought in a totally professional attitude and an experienced artistic ability that really added a creative artistic facet to the job. Being artists ourselves we were very pleasantly suprised by the added creative abilities that Clay brings to our work. I can tell you that his photography makes our Art Glass look BETTER than real life and that never happens!

I you are thinking of using Equinox photo, you will not be disappointed. Tricia absolutely surpassed both me and my wife's expectations. We absolutely loved every photo she took...from our engagement session to our big wedding day. Tricia will absolutely make you feel comfortable in front of a camera. She is 100% professional, but also makes the photo shoot fun! We loved her contagious positive energy, and unique style. Every one of our pictures came out perfect--like bridal magazine perfect! I was so shocked at how she was able to capture every moment so beautifully. On the day of the wedding, Tricia and her husband, LJ, made the stress of the day simply go away with their delightful personalities. Having great wedding photos was one of the most important things that we wanted. My wife was very particular about how she wanted our photos to look, but Tricia surpassed even my wife's high standards :) From the moment we met with Tricia, we know that she would be someone that we could connect with and be open with. We didn't realize at the time how important that would be. There are thousands of photographers out there, but Tricia truly is one in a million. Thank you, Tricia, for everything!

Debora is an amazing and talented photographer. She photographed our elopement. She was very friendly and professional. My partner and I were nervous for our big day but she helped made us feel comfortable and at ease while having fun. She's so creative and captured so many beautiful moments. We couldn't be happier with the end results. She is also affordable which also helped a lot as we were on a budget. We would highly recommend her. Thank you again Debora!

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!!!!

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.

He did a wonderful job. He even brought along with him an additional photograph at no charge to make sure that the lighting and everything was perfect for my products. I highly recommend him for any business that needs to have their products showcased a's well as any family photography. The pictures of the girls came out amazing and he even took home certain items I needed to be shot in the studio his fees are very reasonable and he is very nice and has very creative ideas. I would recommend him more than other people that I've worked with I highly suggest hiring him for any photography needs

Jamie recently did a photoshoot for one of our National Magazines, he was extremely organized and flexible with our deadline. Best of all, the photographs were creatively captured, I LOVE his use of the foreground which adds depth and interest to the photos. I would HIGHLY recommend him. +5 stars! - Leah Q with Ratchet+Wrench Magazine.

Choosing your engagement photographer is no easy task, but somehow Puneet made it one. His professionalism, patience, and skill as a photographer made him our only choice. And once he shot our engagement photos, we knew he was the only one we wanted to shoot our wedding. Puneet put us at ease and made the whole experience fun and memorable.

I have been a client of Joni’s twice! The first time she did our family portraits at Balboa Park and with my then two-year-old son running around and not sitting still (once), she was able to capture many smiling portraits and adorable candids. She was not afraid to get on the floor and in tight spaces to ensure she got great photos of my little one! Second time she did solo photos of my son in and around our home. Joni is very accommodating and has lots of patience when it comes to photographing little ones. She’s also got experience on how to get them to interact with her so they are always looking at the camera! She even was kind enough to take portraits of our Australian cattle mix dog and chihuahua! The dog portraits came out great. Joni is always there to make her clients feel important and she ensures the work is of the highest quality.
