Brad Zangwill photographed my mother's 75th surprise birthday party just two days ago. Before the party, we did a photo shoot of just the immediate family -- grandparents, siblings, grandchildren. It was a lot of fun. Within one hour, Brad managed to photograph us at 5 different locations on the grounds of the hotel where we were. He is super nice, very professional, and very quick! Once the party started, Brad was snapping photos at all the right moments, especially during emotional speeches. I can't wait to see what our photos look like! This is the first time we have such a large event -- 85 people -- and I was a little stressed out. I have to say that Brad's calm presence and efficient demeanor really helped put me at ease. No matter that the champagne was late and the mic didn't work, I knew that at least we would have great photos/great memories regardless. Thank you, Brad!

John is an awesome photographer! He replied quickly to my questions and delivered the photos on time. The posing, positioning, and projection that he asked me to do during the photo shoot are something that I will apply everytime there's a camera around me 👍🏽

Mr. Sechrest stayed in constant contact with us prior to the shoot, inquired about hobbies and other pertinent info pertaining to interest for adding props. for the shoot. Mr. Sechrest also hooked us up with a contact for make up (she did an excellent job). He took us to an excellent location for the best lighting and moved the scheduled day for the shoot so the weather was optimal. Mr. Sechrest was patient with my daughter as she changed clothes and tried different poses, he was willing to cross some treacherous rocks near the water to get the best pics possible. His knowledge of the area for locations was outstanding, he took quite a few really good pictures and the price for his work is very reasonable. I highly recommend Mr. Sechrest for photo shoots and I plan on using his service next year for my other daughter's graduation pictures.

Our family needed a photo of all 12 of us that included 4 little boys under 4. Danielle worked great with the kids and offered lots of different groupings and poses. I was most impressed by how she could be in the middle of a group shot and pause for a great candid she saw out of the corner of her eye.

Joanne just coordinated a photo shoot for 30+ professional headshots for my company. She did an amazing job coordinating with the team, giving them lots of options for their final photo and really worked hard to accomodate their busy schedules. We are extremely happy with her work and hope that she gets lots of additional business from the team for their families!!

Dom and Sarah totally rocked our family photo shoot this past summer. By far the best pics we've had done in all of our summers spent in SoCal.

We have had both a family and individual (my daughter's senior photo) photo shoot with Kenny Goldberg and both times we had a wonderful experience. At each session he took care that we had a variety of poses and spots within the location to choose from. He is professional yet fun to shoot with. He is extremely patient and knows how to get a "good shot." His turn around time was excellent. What I love, since I am always so short on time & I do not have a lot of patience, he will point out & send only the shots he thinks are worthy of consideration. I highly recommend Kenny and will continue to use him for all of our photo shoots.

Aamir was wonderful to work with! I even had a flat tire and had to push my time back a little bit, and he was more than willing to accommodate for me. The photo shoot itself was a great first experience. I will definitely be going back and referring friends!

Clay came to my office to do some headshots and photos around the office. He was great to work with, had great ideas and we were very pleased with his professionalism. He was prompt at returning emails, answering questions, and in touching up the photos. Great turn around time. During the photo shoot, the pictures would upload quickly on his computer so we can see if we wanted to change anything with posing or props. I would definitely be interested in hiring Clay for other photo gigs and have his business card handy.

Amazing photographer! Arrived early, stayed later, made sure we had a list of photos for our big day to keep us on track and took charge to make sure we captured all our desired photos! Most importantly he really made us feel comfortable on our big day, those awkward photo moments were non existent! Thank you so much for being wonderful!

I was so impressed with the location Elena selected, the poses looked natural yet beautiful and best of all I look so much thinner than I actually am in every photo. She was great with my 1 year old. I highly recommend her for family portraits!

Lucas was great to work with!! He did a shoot with myself and one of my "clients" for my new personal training business website and marketing materials. He was comfortable to work with, made posing etc. suggestions and combined them with what I had envisioned. I just did the shoot today so I have not seen the final results, but I'm confident I will love them as he showed me some on his camera--I was very impresses and pleased with his style and lighting. I'm looking forward to seeing the final results. Thanks Lucas for a fun photo shoot!

If there were more stars on here I would give Heather all the stars!! She is by far the most amazing photographer I've been blessed to have shoot for me. She made my wedding day come to life in photos to remember for the rest of my life. She brought me to tears with the candid photos and impressed me even more with the quality of the photos overall. I would recommend her to anyone and everyone for all photo needs!! I hope to have her do our life events in the future!!

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!!!!

Heena was very polite & patient with us. This was my first time hiring a photographer and she helped make our reveal very special. Despite the unfortunate events (my falling) she continued to take photos with such ease & the little photos I got to view on the camera were taken very beautifully. Definitely looking forward to future photo shoots with Heena.

As a dancer (with an interest in modeling), working with photographers on the side is nothing I'm estranged to. Modeling has been part of my journey as an artist, but I can say without hesitation, my experience working with Jonathan has been one of the best. Not only does he have an inviting and warm disposition that left me laughing the entire shoot, but he also has a brilliant eye. He gave me direction and feedback that guided me through the experience so I was able to feel comfortable and confident. He could easily pick out locations that had the best backdrops and lighting without hesitation and made sure that I shined through in every photo. All in all the experience was 10 out of 10 easily. I have had so many friends ask me if I could set them up with him after they saw his final product from our set. He is a born talent in what he does. The integrity of his work shines through with all of his photos. What I truly love most about his work is it enhances natural beauty. He doesn't make people skinnier/taller/whiter teeth/ etc. than they really are; in fact he specifically asked me not to wear fake eye lashes (which is regular for me). Anyone who works with him will have the opportunity to see how beautiful they truly are through other's eyes. That is a gift he gave to me that I will cherish it.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
