Brad was absolutely AMAZING! You can tell he genuinely loves what he does, which is my favorite thing about Brad. I was a bit nervous hiring a photographer that I hadn't officially met in person, especially since photography is one of the most important things for a wedding. Brad did not disappoint. He arrived 30 minutes early, bright eyed and ready to go. He paid SUCH close attention to detail, and was really into getting the perfect shot. He gives you little sneak peaks on his camera so you can see how amazing everything is turning out. He had plenty of equipment, was very creative with his shots, and quick to capture the moments. I knew this man was the truth when he sent over a few highlights the very next morning. I mean, who is so into what they do that they're still working on your stuff after shooting for 8 hours the day before? I can't think of anyone! He was super pleasant, and fun. I felt comfortable talking to him and asking him questions or for certain shots. He wasn't one of those snobby photographers that try to boss you around and don't listen to what you want. Anyway, I could go on and on about how amazing Brad is, but I think you get the picture. If you're nervous about hiring him, don't be. He's the best and you won't regret it!

Project was real estate listing photography of two vacant properties in the Inland Empire. Darren was quick-to-respond, scheduled the shoot for the next day, was early to the site and promised prompt return of the photos, which he did. Both properties are vacant which can be a bit of a challenge to properly shoot but he did a great job. One property instantly saw activity with a modest price reduction and the newly minted photos. I'll be using him again in the future.

Regarding Joanne's response, she acknowledged I am in need of an author photo. Joanne had asked if my book is print or online, she also mentioned photography will be high definition, which is also what my publisher had requested. I will share more after Joanne and I meet.

My husband and I got married on 5/14/16 and initially we weren't going to hire a videographer (dumb). And after deliberating the pros and cons we finally decided on hiring one. The obvious one, Jason. After looking at his reviews and his profile it was easy to see that he was capable of providing what we desired and then some for our special event. After making contact and meeting Jason we knew right away we had made the right decision on hiring a videographer and felt so confident knowing he was beyond experienced and knowledgeable of his craft. The day of the wedding, in every aspect, he displayed professionalism from arriving on time (even a little earlier), communicating with us and other vendors, and even down to his own attire. From point A to point Z Jason was the professional to get us there in our videography experience. Thanks Jason! We'll be referring everyone who wants the best quality work in film and videography! -Chris & Christine

I personally used Kenny Goldberg Photography for my daughters High School Senior photo. This was shot on location at Aliso Beach, CA. We spent a good three hours with a few clothing changes. The final product was absolutely beautiful. My daughter used her favorite photo for her facebook page and High School Graduation Announcement. I used Kenny Goldberg Photography for my Professional Linkedin photo, as well, and am very happy with it. I would like to recommend Kenny Goldberg Photography for your personal or corporate event needs. Whether your photography needs are for High School Senior photos, Family Portrait, Professional Headshot, Corporate Events, Prom, etc.., you will be very impressed and satisfied with the quality of Kenny Goldberg Photography services. Kenny Goldberg is passionate about photography. He possess a great eye and ability to bring out the individual personalities of his clients.

Elizabeth was so great to work with. Our real estate office needed photos as soon as possible for marketing materials. She was originally only going to take head-shots for me, but she so kindly accommodated the rest of the team at a moment's notice. She ensured my photos were retouched and responded quickly to any questions I had. Elizabeth is extremely professional and I would definitely use her photography services again in the future.

I've worked with Palo on several photography and videography projects, but the highlight was the video he made for my sister's wedding. He was on time, professional, and gracious for the entire day, which was so helpful amid the stress of a wedding. Palo didn't miss a thing, and the footage from the wedding is perfect. From tiny details on the dress and rings, to gorgeous aerial shots of the venue, and sweet moments throughout the evening, the final video is the perfect recap of an awesome day. The video is set to music perfectly, with snippets of vows which were an unexpected and amazing surprise. Everyone in my family LOVES the video, especially the bride and groom. If you haven't considered videography for your wedding, do it--and book Palo. You will not be disappointed!

We chose Wasio Photography for our wedding, and I am SO happy with that decision. Not only are Yaneck and Sasha an absolute pleasure to work with, but the pictures from our engagement, wedding, and even post-wedding sessions are phenomenal. The level of professionalism and dedication to their work is very obvious, and I highly recommend Wasio Photography. One of the few tangible things we got to keep from our wedding was the pictures, and I couldn't be happier with the images we received from Wasio.

I had my outdoor session yesterday with Salvador and I am still thrilled by the results we got. The shots were truly top quality as well as the photography session. We tried different looks, lighting, posing and I ended up choosing all 10 images from each look. I really liked how he will show me the shots during the session and allowed me to pre-select the images I wanted right then and there. Salvador's photos are truly unique and people are already complimenting them.

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

Eric was the photographer for my military retirement on the Midway Museum. We could not have had a better experience! He showed up early, and stayed until we were sure we had all the pictures we could've wanted. He had excellent communication, and the pictures were fantastic! From the candid shots we didn't even know he was taking, to the group and posed shots were all perfect! He turned the pictures around quickly despite a busy schedule. I would definitely use Eric again for any photography I might need!

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 enjoyed working with Mario. He was very personable, professional and very capable with his high end drone. I asked Mario to shoot both still photographs and 4K video footage. All of which came out beautiful. In addition to the high quality service, Mario's pricing was very reasonable and I would definitely use his service again, as well as recommend him to others needing either drone photography or video.
