Will did an outstanding job shooting our event at a local LA school. He captured moments with students so beautifully, was exceptionally professional, arrived early and stayed late to get the job done. My company uses Thumbtack to find event photographers in almost every city across the US, and Will is among the best.

Wow. I have hired a lot of event photographers but Brad truly stands out. Brad comes equipt with all of the gizmos and gadgets to take the best photos in any setting. I have yet to receive such professional images. Event photography is difficult. It is hard to capture the right natural moments. Brad is a master at this. Turn around time of edited image gallery was less than 24-hours. Incredible. Will definitely hire again!

Ivan Hundric was an amazing photographer for my event! He made my guest feel comfortable and glamorous. He was ready with his equipment at my location and on time. Very nice and pleasant guy who was focused in doing the task. Everything I asked he gave me no problems which made me event go that much smoother. I really appreciate your time and dedication Ivan! And after the event he sent all the pictures in perfect quality in a timely manner. Ivan will be the only photographer I go to for any events or special occasions I have in the future.

Absolutely wonderful experience. A real pro who is sincerely customer focused. The first photographer who had the humble swag to gently direct the shoot with my best interests in mind. This is a true feat if you've had other experiences with photographers, Marc will get the 'look' you need that you did not know you needed. He took this shaggy dog and turned him into a pedigree!

My family and I had a great experience with Sheryl. We had a huge family photo shoot due a very meaningful reunion- with a newborn, several Oct. birthday celebrants, and a family member that has been in remission with cancer for one year to the date. I was coming from out of state and I searched online for photographers. What caught my attention and what drew me to Sheryl was her great eye and great shots from her portfolio. The colors in her pictures were vivid and creative and wanted to have memorable family photo shoot. She was very professional, easy to contact and talk with. One family member has to be careful with large crowds due to health issues, and she worked well with the space we had. She was resourceful, efficient and accommodating. And she worked well with all the kids- which were 6 in total! Overall, I highly recommend Sheryl for her professionalism, her talent, and for her thoughtfulness.

Danielle was an amazing photographer. She was not only my photographer, but my friend. She was a great listener, and helped me to calm down when I was having "those bridal moments." Her pictures are beautiful, and she did an amazing job capturing mine and my husbands love. I would give her more stars if I could. I would recommend anyone shopping around for a photographer. Choose Danielle. Meet with her, and you'll immediately see why she is so fantastic. ❤️ Danielle, you're the best! Be my photographer when we get pregnant! ;)

Sean was my engagement photographer in April 2016 and he certainly has a talent for photography. He provided us with his recommended locations and was very patient and comfortable to work with. Sean made us feel at ease while taking our pictures and was able to edit them in a way that was unique and natural. I would highly recommend Sean to anybody who is looking for a photographer for their event. Thank you for your services, Sean!

We needed a event photographer for our 40th anniversary celebration. It was held at South Coast Winery & Resort in Temecula, Ca. The event was four hours. Landi Maduro and her team worked with our daughter to capture this special event for our family and friends. What impressed me about Landi and her team was that they were on time, very professional, but what made our day was the "personal touch" in how they went about capturing this special time for us. The quality of their work is just awesome. The extra added feature and quite the hit with our family and guests was the "Photo Booth". The pictures were developed instantly and was a nice little memento gift from us for our guests. There isn't anything I could think of that wasn't already fulfilled from our experience with Bluechild Entertainment. We would most definitely recommend and hire Landi and her team again. Thank-you Debbie Williams Poway, Ca

Hugh was amazing to work with from prepping for the event until after the event. He was professional, friendly and super helpful. He was able to bring along a friend who was equally as great. The guests at the event loved both of them and inquired about who the photographers were after the event! And of course we were more than happy with the quality of the photos! Great work!!

Thank you Mukaila for being such a great photographer for my son's first birthday! My guests thought that the pictures turned out well. Mukaila communicated well through email with specifics of our party. He also arrived on time and was able to take pictures of all the details of our party like I wanted. He was also able to be inconspicuous when he needed to be to get all the action pictures. Turn around time for the pictures was only a week. That is a lot quicker than a lot of other photographers that I have worked with before. If we ever have another event, I would definitely get a hold of Mukaila again.

My wife and I hired Laura and Erica at The Vision Field to be the videographers at our wedding and it ended up being one of the best decisions we made throughout our entire lengthy wedding planning process. First of all, Laura and Erica were an absolute pleasure to work with. They were always extremely quick to respond to all of our questions whether they be related to the type of equipment they would be using or the type of videography we wanted them to capture. During our planning meeting with them over the phone they also knew how to ask us all the right questions in order to make sure they would provide us with exactly the type of service we were expecting. And they were always happy and full of energy, which somehow made us even more excited for the big day as it approached. When the wedding day came they arrived early and were fully prepared with all of their equipment. Our ceremony was at a Catholic church, our reception was in the backyard of a private residence, and we stopped for wedding party photos at a third location in between, and throughout all of this movement Laura and Erica were always able to keep up with the group without us having to worry about them. What actually made us most happy with The Vision Field, in fact, is how they managed to capture every single important moment of our wedding day without ever distracting or getting in the way of us or any of our guests. We hardly noticed that they were there at all, and yet they still ended up delivering incredible footage that perfectly captured every aspect of our ceremony and reception. Whenever my wife and I relive our wedding memories by watching and listening to all the high-quality video and audio, we feel as if we're still there, and in this way Laura and Erica have made our wedding last forever. They're not only videographers and photographers but also musicians and audio engineers, and they therefore know exactly how to record and deliver a perfect product package. We certainly made the right choice by asking The Vision Field to be there with us on our big day and we're thrilled with all that they have done for us. They are good people and experienced professionals, and we fully recommend that you choose to work with them too!

I would highly recommend Stephen as a photographer for any event. He was extremely timely. Stephen was there 15 minutes ahead of time and provided pictures to us within 24 hours. I also felt his prices were very reasonable for the quality of the product. Thank you Stephen for capturing the memories of my mom's 60th birthday.

Dakota is a great photographer! He doesn't just take photos to capture a good image, he takes photos that will connect with you personally. Something that really pulls on your personality and he's great at getting the best of you. He's fun, so you'll enjoy the entire shoot.

Ellen was very professional. Her attention to detail and aesthetic was just what we were looking for in a photographer for our large Co-Ed summer baby shower. We couldn’t be happier with the documentation of our very special event. Edited photos were sent to us very promptly. Would definitely use her again. Thank you Ellen!
