We hired Marc to take our engagement photos and we had a great experience. We recently moved to the area and Marc gave us suggestions for the location of the photoshoot. I'm not a big photo taker and Marc made me feel extremely comfortable. We couldn't be happier. Marc had proofs available that same evening. Would definitely hire again..

We are very pleased with Mr.Sechrest he offered to do our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos all for one price. We were able to view our engagement photos very quickly, and they were amazing. I feel very confident in our wedding day experience seeing the great job he did on our engagement photos.

I recommend Danielle very highly. My husband and I did an engagement photoshoot last night. Danielle was on time, very fun and adventurous for creative pictures, puts you at ease, she loves what she does and that makes it great because you know the work will be good. We had a sunset shoot and it was perfect! She knew where to go, how to pose and also was open for more ideas if we wanted. We were there before the sunset so had fun before during and after it. We cannot wait to see all the photos! Thank you Danielle :) PS: she will be our wedding photographer as well.

Joanne is one of the most creative photographers we have ever met. She was very professional and she was such a pleasure to work with. We were totally comfortable during the session and she was very punctual. She had a state of the art camera and the finished photos were spectacular; so gorgeous. We would highly recommend Joanne to anyone looking for a photographer for a high end photo shoot.. Joanne, thank-you for a great day; you are amazing! Cathy and Jessica Thank-you Joanne you are wonderful.

Dominique came highly recommended by a mutual friend. I was looking for someone to photograph our small beach wedding. It was difficult to find a photographer who would photograph a small wedding without charging BIG wedding prices. I guess most people hear "wedding" and they assume a full day of shooting. We just wanted a photographer for a couple of hours since we weren't having a large wedding or reception. Dominique was very professional and worked with our budget. In the end we came to an agreement which seemed fair. My fiance and I met with Dominique and his partner to look at his work and to get acquainted. At that time we gave him our deposit and filled out the contract. I felt very comfortable with them, I knew then that the day of would be just fine. We made sure to keep contact before and the day of the wedding. He contacted me the day of to touch base. It was kind if a blur that day but things turned out perfect. 2 hours does go by fast. In retrospect, I wish I would have hired him for at least 1 more hour because I would have loved to take more photos with our kids. After all the family photos, my husband and I took off with the photographers to take the bride and groom pics. Everything flowed naturally, I felt very comfortable and we had a blast shooting. I even got my wedding dress wet which actually made for some fabulous photos. The end results were as expected. Beautiful photos of a sunset beach wedding. Thank you so much for capturing our special day! We will definitely use you guys in the future and recommend to friends.

Hugh was amazing to work with from prepping for the event until after the event. He was professional, friendly and super helpful. He was able to bring along a friend who was equally as great. The guests at the event loved both of them and inquired about who the photographers were after the event! And of course we were more than happy with the quality of the photos! Great work!!

Elena did my engagement photos and they came out beautiful, my husband and I never took professional photos before, so she guided us until we got comfortable. She definitely listened to what we wanted and it came out beautiful. Elena also did our wedding and we're waiting on the pictures but I know they'll be great! She was so wonderful! Thank you!

Steve shot our engagement ceremony. He was punctual and very professional. During the ceremony it was like he wasn't even there but from the pictures he took, he was everywhere. This was great, as I've seen many photographers be intrusive in similar events. During the formal family pictures, he and his assistant, Isela, had a fun, positive vibe and positioned people and that brought out the best in everyone and it showed in the pics. He captured the essence of our special day and we could not be happier with the results.

Outstanding, absolutely phenomenal photography! Sasha & Yanek photographed my engagement session and wedding and the photos well exceeded my expectations. They make you feel so comfortable with them that you're so naturally relaxed and look amazing in your photos. I had the opportunity to work with Magdalena for a boudoir session before the wedding and she was amazing too! You don't get better than Wasio when it comes to photography. I will forever use them for my formal photo sessions. I love these guys! I am so honored to have had them as my photographers last year.

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!

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

We had so much fun during our engagement photo shoot with Kelly and the girls! In addition to being courteous and friendly, the ladies all have a great eye for detail and are extremely knowledgable. They really know how to leverage their creativity and technical skills to get stunning images. Our photos came out beautifully just as the ladies took them and required no editing whatsoever. Thanks for the great experience and magical photos, Kufatography!!

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!!!!

Jayson photographed my wedding, and my husband and I could not be more happy with the experience and results! A personal pet peeve of mine is when wedding photographers distract all the guests by getting up close to the ceremony, ruining the experience for everyone watching in person. Jayson is ninja-like in his ability to blend in to the background while he photographs from afar, producing beautiful shots of the ceremony while going completely unnoticed by any of the guests. When it came time to take posed photographs, he did exactly as I asked and moved it along quickly, so it didn’t feel tedious or disorganized. That’s a major plus when you’ve already spent hours organizing every other aspect of the event. I would highly recommend Juxtaposition for your wedding or event!

Jimmy was a very easygoing and flexible photographer. He was very patient as he photographed our large extended family of 15 (including my wily 3 year old son!). We went over in our allotted time and he graciously didn't charge us more for that. Need I say that he was a great value. We got our pictures, edited, back so quickly too, which made it nice because we needed some of the pictures for our holiday cards. He responded to emails very quickly. It should be noted that we were a very rambunctious, 'Type A' sort of group and we provided a lot of the ideas of how we would be composed in each picture. We might have benefitted from more direct guidance from Jimmy on how to be arranged, what angles would look best on us, and getting both kids and adults to look into the camera, but he was probably just going with the flow. A small comment, because we think he would provide that guidance if we were to ask for it. We would definitely utilize his services again! Thanks Jimmy!

Jed Zant Photography is unmatched. His eye for beauty, lighting, location and depth make him a dream to work with. After shooting our Details Dancewear Queen of Hearts Collection, we knew we would be working with him again. Positive and enthusatstic on set as well as with our model, we were proud to share the outcome. Live now on social media and web, his incredible shots are featured and with raving reviews from fans, clients, dancers and other photographers. As a company owner, I definitely recommend this talented young artist. -Vela Bianca, Details Dancewear, Details by Vela, Vela Bianca Swimwear
