Brad was fantastic! When he arrived at our location, he quickly scanned the scenery, and within seconds was able to determine the most beautiful spots to shoot. He picked several places based on existing architecture, landscape and foliage. His vision was amazing! A true photographer. I was worried about all the people in the area, but he knew how to set up the shots so it looked like we were the only ones there. He was also able to direct us into poses that may have felt unnatural, but translate wonderfully to the finished photo. The results were beautiful! I'm always concerned about color and lighting - I see so many photographers get it wrong, but our photos are truly professional quality. If you want someone who strikes a nice balance between efficiency, artistry, and reasonable pricing (and who doesn't?) then I highly recommend Brad!

My family and I were vacationing in Newport from out of state and chose Danielle to capture our beach fun. I had never been to the area before and didn't know any photographers much less any good spots that would work well for family photographs. After exchanging some emails a few weeks before our arrival, we set a date and location for our photos. Danielle was prompt, professional, and chose an excellent location for the photos. Our session was no easy task because I have two small children, ages 5 and 2. Combine that with water and sand and you get a recipe for disaster, but Danielle was able to somehow capture great photographs of my family. I would definitely use her again in the future.

We began using Joanne as our family photographer when our son was 6 months old (in Hawaii)…and I'm so happy we did!!! She's help capture his precious infant/toddler years in her Watch Me Grow & Watch Me Grow Some More package…which we all LOVE looking through now that he's almost 6 years old. Joanne is AMAZING with infants & toddlers! She's patient and sweet, and kids love her! We've even used her as our photographer for our preschool…and the images were incredible! Our favorite photo session with her was a couple of months ago at Disneyland! She captured the essence of our favorite times at the place "where dreams come true."

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.

Heather did such a wonderful job during my photo shoot. Before the shoot she helped me prepare very well by creating a Pinterest board for potential looks and conference calls to discuss parking, location, hair and what type of makeup will look best in the pictures. During the shoot she was very friendly, punctual, and made me feel at ease while taking the pictures. She was very professional, outgoing, friendly, and made sure I got the best shots. After the photoshoot, I was very surprised how quickly Heather uploaded the photos, she also kept me updated the entire process. Everyone who saw Heather "in action" was very impressed and now want to book her! If you want quality service, photos, and a great photographer, please book Heather! Thank you again Heather, for such a great photoshoot and making my birthday special!

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.

I had a sisters photo shoot by Olga in Oman. It was such a great experience because not only did she manage to capture our "photo" faces, but she also captured priceless moments of us laughing, talking, and simply being sisters. I will always cherish that photo shoot because she made an average place look like we are in heaven, and she made us look like natural models in the pictures. I can't wait for her to shoot more of my photos. She is the only photographer I have met that doesn't ask you fake a pose, and she is definitely not afraid to get down and dirty to get some cool shots! Great work and keep it up Olga!

I got headshots taken for my graduation from Medical School. My family was very happy with how the photos looked. I have also used the photos for applications to fellowship and for badges. They look very professional and my pictures stand apart.

She did a great job at the actual wedding but what really impressed me was the sending of the USB and photo frame with a picture form the wedding inside of it. The USB itself was actually inside of a custom made wooden box and the USB was a wooden card with her company name on it. She chose a beautiful picture from the wedding to put in the photo frame that matched the beach these of our wedding. She is affordable, professional, and an amazing deal. Definitely recommend.

My fiance and I hired Chasing Light to do our photo and video for our wedding. Their pricing was perfect for what we were looking for and we were very excited to be getting both photo and video by the same team. We recently had our engagement photos and cannot begin to explain how happy we are to have chosen them. Our photographer, Russ, was very flexible with the date and even helped us find the perfect location. He definitely listened to what we had in mind and was even ok with my fiance wearing his sunglasses for some of the shots. Russ was very easy to work with and had 2 preview images back to me within the next hour! On top of that, he had the rest of our images ready the next day and they are everything we hoped for and more! I have friends who had to wait weeks to get their engagement photos back. Needless to say, we are obsessed with our engagement photos and CANNOT wait to see how our wedding photos and video turn out.

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

From quote to delivery of the images, Gleimlight was delightful to work with. Whenever I had questions during the bidding process, they were quick to respond and willing to discuss details by email and phone. We had an extended family shoot with 26 people ranging in age from 2 to 86 years old. Yes, it was chaotic, but Jacob and Christina stayed calm and focused. We got all of the photos we wanted and then some. They took pictures of the entire group, individual families, and generations. We even had a clothing change in the middle. We had a blast and the final images were easy to download and exactly what I was hoping for. Thank you Jacob and Christina for wonderful memories of Thanksgiving 2017!!!

As a business owner it is imperative that I contact and utilize the services of other professionals to help me with the areas that I lack in. I got on Thumbtack last week for the first time and contacted photographer Patrick Sanford. Patrick was able to see me within two days of our initial conversation and I was very pleased with his quick response and ability to squeeze me into his schedule. I have a personal training studio and was in need of some high quality fitness photos. WOW. I was blown away by the quality and look of the photos and the editing job was done in less than 24 hours. He met me and gave a thumb drive with over 200 edited professional images. I am very grateful for his expertise and willingness to meet my needs as promptly as he did. I highly recommend Patrick as a photographer. Professional, great eye and super cool. I will be doing more work with him in the future!

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!
