About

I'll start off by saying that I do my research, so when I decided to look for a photographer to take some much overdue headshots, it was no different. I checked out the portfolios of many photographers and selected Adam Southhard of Best LA Headshots. I am very happy with the pictures he took and the experience that I had. Adam Southard is a very talented photographer; very professional, patient and timely. My research paid off. 5 Stars - I highly recommend Best LA Headshots.

We hired Will to shoot two large group photos for a corporate training and deliver prints by the next business day and he completed the job seamlessly and professionally. He was easy to get in touch with and very reliable. I coordinated this training in 15 different markets with 15 different photographers, and Will was one of our favorites! I would recommend Will for any photography job in the area!

Brad (and Thumbtack) were phenomenal! At nearly the last minute I decided a professional photographer was in order for my daughter's Sweet 16 party. Somehow while searching the internet I found Thumbtack and after a few tries, found Brad. I provided no direction beyond the location and time of the party. He showed up as promised and did an incredible job. My daughter and I could not be happier with the photos. Thanks Brad!!

We are so happy that we found Brett through Thumbtack! My husband and I had a wedding celebration at the La Quinta Resort last weekend and wanted to capture the memories on film. Brett was always quick to respond and so easy going leading up to our event. We felt comfortable with our decision to hire him and could not be more pleased with his expertise and professionalism. He was accommodating, energetic, positive and engaged. It felt like part of our family as we took pictures as he showed the same excitement as we did throughout the evening. He is awesome and anyone that is looking for a professional photographer should look no further. Thank you Brett!!! :)

He will be the only one I contact for my future events.

About

My brother got married in a beautiful setting in the remote hills of wine country and the photos were going to be amazing....and wouldn't you guess it, but the photographer that was hired didn't have charged batteries in her camera. She was completely useless. Well the good news is Ron Hall was a guest at the wedding, and being the professional photographer that he is, he doesn't leave home without his video and digital camera equipment. He stepped up to the plate, photographed the wedding party, the procession, and the entire reception including all the speeches. He ended up putting a CD together and distributing it to the married couple and immediate family and it was exactly what we wanted. All the emotion and love on that day came through in the video he put together after saving the day. Ron is extremely talented and knows his equipment well. I would hire him for any professional photography or videography needs without a question. Not to mention, he's funny and he puts people at ease in front of the camera!

About

Found out about Tina through a mutual friend who said she'd be great with setting me up with new head-shots for auditions. Best experience at a photoshoot i've had thus far!! She knew exactly what she wanted me to do. I knew exactly what kind of shots i wanted and she knew the best ways for me to accomplish those shots!! We spent a couple of hours shooting and had a WIDE selection of GREAT shots!! My past experiences have been the photographer just taking shots in quantity and it's hard to find a quality shot in there. With Tina's i had a VERY hard time selecting my final shots!! Not only was she great with shooting, but she had the raw images sent to be before the end of the DAY!!! roughly 150 shots (minus blinking shots, etc...)!!! She ALSO sent me a few edited shots that same day as well and said if i don't like those particular ones, i can definitely choose another set i'd prefer! I'll DEFINITELY be going back to her whenever i need fresh shots!!!

About

Captured Moments by Dee photographed both our engagement photos and our wedding at Spanish Hills Country Club. The photographs turned out AMAZING!!! Dee, the owner, brings her experience and knowledge to create photos that are timeless and endearing while capturing all of those important moments! What’s more, Dee’s calm and fun-loving presence was a huge plus!! My husband and I commented several times at how skilled Dee was at handling multiple personalities, bringing out the best in everyone, and how we always felt relaxed and at ease, which is saying something since weddings can be extremely chaotic and stressful. The only downside was that at the end of the day, we had so many gorgeous photos to choose from, it made deciding which photos to put in the album extremely difficult. I would absolutely recommend Captured Moments by Dee…and have…to anyone looking for a professional photographer. Two of my coworkers used her for their weddings. Let’s just say…AMAZING PHOTOGRAPHS!!!!

Kody was great and went beyond for us to get the perfect pictures of our daughter for her first birthday. Her photo editing was what really made it all worth it for us. I would highly recommend her and plan to use her in the future!

About

I've been a photographer for the better part of 60 years, having begun in grammar school. I shot the Beatles in 1965 arriving at S.F. Airport and at their afternoon and evening concerts at The Cow Palace when I was a student at San Leandro High School and the staff photographer for KYA Radio in San Francisco. I went on to have a career in the music business as a record company executive and artist manager. In those capacities I've hired many of the greatest and most recognized photographers of all time. Choosing and selecting photographs for publicity, advertising, promotion and imaging has always been a significant responsibility throughout my career. Gianni embraces all of the qualities that I look for in a professional photographer. He has the rare talent of putting his subject at ease from the outset and delivers creative and thoughtful images that provoke a mood and unique perspective each and every time.

We enjoyed working with Chris. He was very accommodating -- we were in Burbank and not familiar with the area. He was willing to meet us at a park within walking distance to our hotel, spent plenty of time with us and was open to our input on the groupings/shots. We'd definitely recommend Chris to others.

What a treasure we found in Vanessa and Khai of Adamo Imagery. Planning a long distance wedding can be a daunting task, especially when you cannot meet your photographers. From the moment we spoke with Adamo Imagery, we knew Vanessa and Khai were the team for our wedding! They are very detailed, have excellent communication, and were just an absolute pleasure to work with. Vanessa made us feel very comfortable right from the start. Their work is absolutely phenomenal. Upon arriving at our venue, they quickly went to work…the funny thing about that – you wouldn’t know they were there. Vanessa and Khai captured every moment of our wedding. Upon receiving our photos, we were nothing short of thrilled. The images we received were so beautiful. It was amazing looking back on our day through the photos from Adamo Imagery and not realizing they even took half of them. They are that good!!! We could not be more estatic in our choice to hire Vanessa and Khai for our Santa Barbara wedding. Thank you so much!!! xo, Kristeen & Matt

About

We hired Edwin for my parents 50th Anniversary Celebration. He was AWESOME! He showed up to the church ahead of schedule and unnoticeably maneuvered around without being a distraction to the ceremony. Even pictures after ceremony at church alter went great. He is not overbearing like some photographers and allowed us to freely position ourselves but also made some great suggestions. At the reception he again made everyone feel comfortable taking both formal and candid shots. Very polite to all guests and even took to suggestions openly. During reception his pictures with the room in low light came out terrific. All in all he stayed with us for over 8 hours and was again simply AWESOME. After the event, he was able to post all pics the following weekend. This usually takes two weeks but he was gracious enough to expedite his editing and filtering and post everything online. His pics are truly fantastic and all that have seen them have the utmost praise with the quality of his work. If you are looking for that photographer that can get it done, then Edwin is your guy. Thanks again Edwin. You gave my parents pictures that will make them happy for another 50 years!

I graduated in 2015 with a Bachelor of Science in Photography. I've spent the past 5 years photographing musicians such as Lenny Kravitz and Wiz Khalifa. I decided early on I absolutely love capturing candid moments that would never happen again. I love the interaction I get with people (and even fur babies).
