Wow. I have hired a lot of event photographers but Brad truly stands out. Brad comes equipt with all of the gizmos and gadgets to take the best photos in any setting. I have yet to receive such professional images. Event photography is difficult. It is hard to capture the right natural moments. Brad is a master at this. Turn around time of edited image gallery was less than 24-hours. Incredible. Will definitely hire again!

Danielle was an amazing photographer. She was not only my photographer, but my friend. She was a great listener, and helped me to calm down when I was having "those bridal moments." Her pictures are beautiful, and she did an amazing job capturing mine and my husbands love. I would give her more stars if I could. I would recommend anyone shopping around for a photographer. Choose Danielle. Meet with her, and you'll immediately see why she is so fantastic. ❤️ Danielle, you're the best! Be my photographer when we get pregnant! ;)

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.

My first experience with Kenny was an email exchange. The exchange was friendly, energetic and positive and set the tenor and tone for the entire experience. A phone conversation ensued, and that was again positive and friendly and upbeat. In fact, Kenny is not only a professional, but he’s one who is enthusiastic about his chosen métier. I mentioned that I’m a serious amateur photographer and he immediately jumped at the chance to talk about his passion. In other words, Kenny is not only interested in the business end of things but truly enjoys his work and talking about it. I immediately felt comfortable with him. Kenny was the first of several photographers from Thumbtack that were on my list of contacts. But, as a result of the very positive conversation I had with him, I decided to hire him right then and there. The day of the photo session Kenny was ready to go on time. He welcomed me warmly into his studio and we proceeded to create some very nice looking professional head shots and 3/4 shots. Probably because Kenny remembered talking to me about my interest in photography, he explained things as he went along such as how and why he was lighting his subject in a certain way. He loves “talking shop” and I think this is a sign of someone dedicated to his art. I think this kind of individual makes the best professional. And the proof is borne out of the results. Kenny created some very nice photos about which I’ve already received numerous compliments and enthusiastic praise from family, friends and colleagues alike. I would definitely hire Kenny again. And… I still enjoy talking to him about photography. We still exchange emails and he’s still friendly and genuine. I can highly recommend Kenny to you for your professional photo needs.

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!!

More than Outstanding! Very talented and professional photographer. Clay is a very driven and passionate man who works in a timely manner! He provides lots of creative ideas and has a special eye that somehow combines creative and professional, perfectly. Clay and his assistant came to shoot a commercial industry shoot. He was very time efficient, talented and most of all an enjoyable photographer to have around! 10 stars!

Pavol is a lifesaver! I need an event photographer last minute (like within 3 hours of posting on here) and Pavol was not only quick in response but was onsite with me walking the property within 2 hours. He was polite, professional, and very accommodating to our photography needs. I would give him my highest recommendation for your events! I look forward to using his work in my upcoming publications and on social media. Thank you Pavol and well done! I look forward to working with you again on any future San Diego projects!

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.

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!!!!

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!

It was an amazing experience working with Heena. She puts her heart into her work and it is visible in her projects/pictures. She is very professional and organized. She has a huge collection of props and backgrounds to match your theme. She has experience with babies and is super patient. She is willing to work that extra mile to make her customer happy and this what makes her different from any of other photographers. I will be hiring her again for my child’s first birthday and cake smashing. Thank you Heena for all your hard work.
