Portrait Photography

We have two toddlers and got holiday pictures on the beach with one outfit change during sunset. You can imagine how challenging this all can be to capture the perfect shots and Alan and Ina did it! They brought toys to get the kids attention and were excellent in telling us non professionals what to do and where to stand quickly. We love them!

Portrait Photography

Alan and Ina were great. Their response time was usually instant and they were friendly, professional and personable. They did everything they said they would do. The pictures came out beautifully, even with a busy one year old. I would definitely use them again.

Wedding and Event Photography

We are so happy that we decided to work with Sechrest Photos! Alan and Ina are awesome to work with! We were not sure that we even wanted engagement photos, but we are so glad that we did! We had a blast during our shoot! They were punctual, very attentive to the types of shots we prefer (we love more candid shots rather then super posed), and it felt like we were working with good friends! We are now very excited for our wedding! The photo quality is absolutely amazing! There was not one photo we were disappointed with. Sechrest Photos is very responsive to emails and texts and will work with you and your needs. I am so happy that we hired them and highly recommend that you do, too. You will not be disappointed!

Engagement Photography

Alan & Ina are the best dynamic duo! We used them for our February 2019 engagement photo session in Laguna Beach. From the very beginning they were responsive, friendly, and extremely helpful. They were flexible and totally willing to work with my fiancé & I busy schedules. They touched base with us several times (but not too much) prior to our shoot to get to know my fiancé & I better, and to make sure we were all on the same page. When we arrived at our beach location, they were all set up & ready to go.. even had good music playing in the background. Throughout the shoot they had such a great, positive energy & an awesome sense of humor that made us feel completely comfortable. They made our engagement photos such an enjoyable experience; we truly had so much fun! We received access to our digital images in less than a week... each more beautiful than the next! I highly recommend Alan & Ina. It is obvious that they genuinely love what they do, which is clearly reflected in their gorgeous photos.
