We hired Dayvid to shoot our wedding in Malibu last month. We were a little nervous hiring some one we had never met, but we could not have asked for a better photographer. Our photos are amazing, Dayvid is a true artist!!! Dayvid was also very professional and had a calm soothing way about him that makes even those who do not like to be photographed feel comfortable. His attention to detail was wonderful, we are great full to Dayvid for capturing all of the great memories of the day that we now have for a life time.

We just had family portraits taken with Ivan from Creative Vision and the work was incredible. He was really good with our baby and 9 year old. He is extremely meticulous about the smallest of details and each of the pictures will turn out far better then you would expect. I would recommend him for any event and I will definitely use his services again.

Brad was outstanding in every way! He responded to emails quickly, came to the location an hour early to scout out good shots, creative in our poses, and obviously passionate about photography.

Couldn't be happier! John was communicative and friendly in setting up our session then so great with our girls in getting them involved and relaxed for the shoot. Plus Becca the make up artist really highlighted their natural beauty. The real reason I'm writing this review though is that their photos came out gorgeous! So, great experience for me and for our girls and ultimately we walk away with professional head shots that really show their personality and beauty. I highly recommend J. Glover photography!

We hired Alan to take a family portrait for our mothers 80th birthday. It was a special day. We are a large family (30+) from 6 months to 80!! When we arrived at the location Alan was already there getting things ready for us. He was so patient with us and so very professional. He took his time to make sure that he got lots of different group shots with the different families. When he delivered the finished product I was totally amazed. My mother was so happy when we presented it to her. He really made her 80th Birthday a day she will never forget. Thanks Alan!!

I'm amazed at her ability to capture the moment and her uncanny eye for detail. This young lady is truly a artist and I look forward to using her for any and all photography needs I highly recommend her to anyone. Real pro 5 stars!!! Thank you so much Danielle.

Sheryl was the photographer at our wedding, and I cannot say enough about the amazing job she did. Everything from her communication to her professionalism was outstanding. She made everyone at the wedding feel comfortable and at ease. I was so impressed with the little things she did like making sure my dad has his boutonniere on before the ceremony and capturing the moments that I would never have thought of. Above all if you want a photographer to be creative and use her artistic skills to create breathtaking results, then Sheryl is the one!

Dino did some portrait photos for me to use for my office's website, and he worked magic with what is usually a not so photogenic subject. He knew how to bring the best out in me while all the while being laid back, genuine and professional. I highly recommend his services. You will come away with a good experience and great photos.

Dakota took our family pictures at the beach in San Diego. He took some great shots. We took sunset pictures, around 5pm, and the light was beautiful. He took some portrait type and then some candid. He was willing to take whatever pictures we asked him to, even super silly ones of us and the kids. He got the pictures to us within a week. I definitely have my pick of photos to use for my Christmas card, and I will be enlarging and framing some as well. We were very pleased with Dakota's pictures and we would hire him as our photographer again.

As a dancer (with an interest in modeling), working with photographers on the side is nothing I'm estranged to. Modeling has been part of my journey as an artist, but I can say without hesitation, my experience working with Jonathan has been one of the best. Not only does he have an inviting and warm disposition that left me laughing the entire shoot, but he also has a brilliant eye. He gave me direction and feedback that guided me through the experience so I was able to feel comfortable and confident. He could easily pick out locations that had the best backdrops and lighting without hesitation and made sure that I shined through in every photo. All in all the experience was 10 out of 10 easily. I have had so many friends ask me if I could set them up with him after they saw his final product from our set. He is a born talent in what he does. The integrity of his work shines through with all of his photos. What I truly love most about his work is it enhances natural beauty. He doesn't make people skinnier/taller/whiter teeth/ etc. than they really are; in fact he specifically asked me not to wear fake eye lashes (which is regular for me). Anyone who works with him will have the opportunity to see how beautiful they truly are through other's eyes. That is a gift he gave to me that I will cherish it.
