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.

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.

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.

Laura was WONDERFUL! I could not have asked for a better photographer for my beautiful outdoor wedding. She was available last minute and for a great price. She captured every moment of that special day. From me getting ready to the night ending with everyone celebrating, she took so many beautiful pictures. Laura worked very well with us and was very genuine and sweet. She cares about making sure she gets as many great pictures as she can in the amount of time she has. I would definitely recommend her to others.

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

I needed some professional photos for my LinkedIn account and WASIO photography was the perfect place. Sasha and Yaneck are two very talented photographers. I felt their humble presence created such an inviting atmosphere which made it easy and comfortable to be in front of the camera. Both of these photographers really take time to capture their client's personality. I appreciated their attention to detail; they understood that the smallest of details such as the position of a hand can improve the overall photo. I was very impressed with the level of skill and concentration that went into each photo. I really enjoyed my experience with WASIO photography and I know you will too.

Debora is an amazing and talented photographer. She photographed our elopement. She was very friendly and professional. My partner and I were nervous for our big day but she helped made us feel comfortable and at ease while having fun. She's so creative and captured so many beautiful moments. We couldn't be happier with the end results. She is also affordable which also helped a lot as we were on a budget. We would highly recommend her. Thank you again Debora!

Maria went beyond helping us capture a very special moment in our lives, she helped pick the exact spot, the manner in which it happened and brought the champagne for afterwards. My birthday surprise to my girlfriend was a trip to San Diego. Unbeknownst to her I was planning my wedding proposal for that trip. We had never been to San Diego before and Maria went out of her way to help choose the best location for the proposal (A particular spot on Sunset Cliffs). I wanted to capture this moment with a professional photographer but I also wanted it to be a surprise. Maria was willing to act as if she was at the spot taking photos to build her own portfolio and if we were willing to be captured in a few. After some initial pictures she had my now fiancé turn toward the water where I was able to get down on my knee and Maria prompted her to turn back around. It was perfect!! In addition to all that she went the extra mile and bought a bottle of champagne (with her own money) for afterward with cups that said 'She Said...' 'Yes'. That was never in the plan she just did it! The pictures turned out amazing. My fiancé was(is) in shock and was very surprised. Couldn't have asked for a better result. So in conclusion if you want a engagement planner, actress, professional photographer, and all around great person I highly recommend Maria Lozano.

My photographer was out of town, and I needed a sub fast. Mario was right there, did a great job, and was a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Mario to anyone in need of a professional photographer. Quality, professionalism, great service, and just a real nice guy are what you can expect... Anthony B.

Robert was early and did a fantastic job of capturing so many moments. He also was very patient with my mother and I as we requested several group photos throughout the evening. I would definitely reccomend him and use him again should we have a need for a photographer.

Patrick has done our family photos twice now and both experiences were fun, effortless, and comfortable. No forced smiles, no cheesy poses or filters...just really great photos of my family. My children both love him and as a result, he has managed to to capture some of my favorite photos of them which is not an easy feat particularly with my daughter who is very camera shy and reluctant and difficult to photograph! Patrick will be our family’s photographer for as long as he is willing which is a testament to how capable and talented he is if you consider that we have a photographer in our family who is willing to do our photos for free 🙈 We love him and the amazing images he takes of our family but his action shots particularly of surfers are the most breath taking. Follow him on Instagram if you ever want to take a mental retreat to the beach. They are truly amazing and calming to look at. @patricksanfordphotography

I hired Juxtaposition for a sexy budouir photo shoot. Something like this was definitely out of my comfort zone and I was very nervous. I talked with the photographer and his wife and they were very respectful and comforting. She told me I could bring a friend which was very assuring. They answered all my questions honestly and upfront. Once I got there they have me a tour of the places we would be taking the pics and that made me comfortable even more. The shoot itself was so much fun! I got to do different poses and outfits so I had plenty to choose from. Jayson is the photographer and his wife helps with poses, hair, clothes etc I was not sure if I wanted a male photographer when researching and ended up choosing him because of how respectful he was on the phone and the pricing was also amazing! Not overly expensive at all! I noticed from my personal experience that Jayson has an artistic perspective not a sexual like most girls would think a man would have with this photo shoot. On top of making me feel comfortable we all had fun! It felt like I was out with a group of friends it was an amazing experience and am even thinking about hiring them for my wedding!:) hire them they are awesome!

Alan's professionalism and friendliness left me with a strong sense of confidence in his abilities and comfort in his guidance as he created beautiful photo after beautiful photo. I'm camera shy, so having someone who can get me out of my shell, getting me to enjoy being photographed, is huge for me. If you need professional photos taken, for work, school, family memories, or even just for fun, look no further than Alan Crosthwaite!
