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 hired Gabriel Hernandez for our wedding. After talking to other photographers I decided to hire him because is a person easy to talk to, gives good ideas of what places are good to take the pictures. I was concern about the time and if the pictures of the ceremony would come out nice because it was in the afternoon, he help out taking the necessary equipment. He was on time for our first meeting and we talk about our expectations, he made things much easier for us. For our wedding he got there early, he took very nice pictures before, during and after. We felt very confortable with his service, he is very helpful and easy to work with.

First of all Pao i want to say thank you for making us happy. Pao is very professional when it comes to his job his always on time. He did a couple shoot one for my engagement and the other one is for my wedding. its not often that you find a VERY GOOD/ EXCELLENT photographer/videographer and at same time HONEST people. my husband and i are so busy i never know that my husband already pay them and i give them another envelope the payment and a gift. they already leave the place but Pao and his partner came back telling us. that i give them to much money. My family and my visitors in my wedding are glad to hear that in this crazy world good people are still exists. Pao and his partner are not just very good at their job they are honest too. Fyi our engagement photos are extremely pleased....will update about the photos of our wedding soon. To all the couples planning for the best wedding photographer/videographer i recommend this person as soon as he start holding his camera he cant stop!!! The best!!!!

She did a great job at the actual wedding but what really impressed me was the sending of the USB and photo frame with a picture form the wedding inside of it. The USB itself was actually inside of a custom made wooden box and the USB was a wooden card with her company name on it. She chose a beautiful picture from the wedding to put in the photo frame that matched the beach these of our wedding. She is affordable, professional, and an amazing deal. Definitely recommend.

Awesome! We all know pictures are one of the most important parts of the wedding. What an amazing crew this guy has. I had them for the entire big day. He did all of the getting ready shots. Even had a drone to get some amazing air photos. The wedding was flawless. Russ even put together a timeline for me because I was so overwhelmed. They got every shot I could have possibly asked for! They were extremely professional and very helpful. I honestly can not say enough good things about this team. Customer service is huge to me. They went beyond exceptional customer care. You will be happy you chose them! Thanks again for everything! You made our day a little bit better by being a part of it! -Marissa

Carries photographed our wedding on Laguna beach. She did a great job and the pictures came out beautiful!! She did everything I asked and was super sweet! The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is I think she should have given US more direction of other poses and places to take pictures. Also there aren't very many pictures of just my husband and I. On our honeymoon we saw other photographers shooting weddings on the beach and the couples were at their command, the photographer was leading them to different places and directing what poses they suggested... Carrie should do more of that! But, our photos are beautiful and she got them to us pretty quickly.. I would definitely recommend her! She is also super affordable!! Thank you Carrie!

Dia and Michael were amazing! Ours was a small intimate wedding and they were so accommodating and professional. I would highly recommend Meraz photography! They really made our day special, even when our teenage daughter started being "sassy" they handled it with poise and grace! I cannot say enough great things about Meraz photography! You won't regret hiring them for your event!

Jesse is AWESOME! I have worked with him on numerous occasions from corporate events to even my own wedding. He and his staff are great to work with. Jesse always arrives on time, comes prepared and gets involved with the clients to establish a personal relationship and not just be all business. I continue to refer him to any and all of my clients as his services are a great addition to any event. I highly recommend Jesse Arroyo for all your photography needs!

Katy Nietes, Gemini Photography was everything we wanted and more for our wedding photographer! We met with her and instantly liked her. She has a witty sense of humor and a calm way about her. We asked for her to shoot our engagement photos so we could get to know each other. She was awesome! For our wedding I also took the role of wedding coordinator. With every email or message Katy was prompt in her replies and always looking out for our best interest. And just yesterday - a year past our wedding - I called Katy and she still remains prompt. It's not like she is doing that just because you are a client. She really cares and loves what she does. And it shows.

I booked Heather to photograph our wedding but later shfound out she had another commitment. She was able to find another photographer to cover my wedding. I trusted heather when she said this new photographer was awesome. She was right!! Heather could of just canceled but then I would have been so stressed hunting to find a replacement. Everything worked out fine.

Meg is amazing and a real professional! Her experience in photography really shows in her work. From our first meeting with Meg, we were thoroughly impressed with how detailed, professional, and natural her approach was. We were not sure about having a photoshoot as we don't regularly take lots of pictures together but Meg really made us feel relaxed and calm by guiding us during our engagement shoot. We instantly felt comfortable and confident that she would do a great job as our wedding photographer. Leading up to our wedding, she was excellent with maintaining communication and she gave us great information about how to prepare for the engagement shoot, how to plan our photo lists and what would work best with our timeline. In fact, she helped give good feedback about our timeline, which was extremely helpful. Our wedding was a DIY wedding, which meant that we did everything ourselves and didn't have a wedding coordinator but Meg was great with communicating with our wedding party about the timeline. We were also impressed with how open she was to suggestions about particular shots we wanted. During our wedding Meg was very organized, efficient and kept everything moving along. She was so attentive about keeping us relaxed and she even was so helpful in keeping me hydrated. She would jump in to make sure we got the shots that we would treasure. Meg did an amazing job capturing candid photos and the essence of our wedding, all without us even noticing that he was floating around! Since we didn't have a videographer, we loved all the natural moments she captured of our guests and of us too of course! She was very great with reminding us about the family portraits that we wanted to have. Meg was so great with all of our family and guests too! Some of our friends were so happy to have the chance to get a nice photograph taken that day. I must also mention that our wedding was outdoors so the full sun made it challenging to find good lighting but Meg was prepared as she arrived early and found several great spots around the venue to capture great pictures. She would quickly adapt as the elements would change and this is definitely not easy to do. She has a great eye for lighting. Meg went above and beyond as she even stayed longer to help break down the wedding decorations and pack the party rentals. She didn't have to but I could tell that she is a genuine person as she took action and helped clear things. We are so grateful to you Meg!!! We were extremely happy with the quality of our photographs, we even had a guest mention that several of the final images look like a Renoir painting! If you're looking for someone who is professional, organized, thoughtful, experienced and overall a genuine person, Meg is the photographer to capture your special day. You won't go wrong with Meg Marie Photography! We highly recommend Meg for your wedding day! Simon and Monique Schafer

I hired Urreola Film Weddings for my wedding that took place on March 5, 2016. I hired Raul and Christie for their true love package that included both photos and video. I have to say that booking them was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding day. They, first of all are very professional and very considerate to mine and my husbands needs. They captured every moment I could have possibly wanted and more! I wasn't aware of how much of the day I missed until I received my photos and video.(which I got in less than a month!)They also made my bridal party feel comfortable in front of the camera as well as my guests. Raul is hilarious! He definitely got us laughing which made the footage look so great! Christie is really a really sweet and fun person! I love having her there to capture all of the intimate parts as well as the details. I am so happy that they were there so make my day complete and now my husband and I have something to look back on and cherish for the rest of our lives.

Robert Dennis has taken pictures for me for both my wedding and professional events and his work has always been incredible. The clarity and sharp images in his photographs were honestly hard to believe, even in this day in age of technology. I have never been disappointed with his work. Robert is a quality individual as well. He is polite, quick, and very engaging. He kept me aware of what he was doing so that I was clued into every step of his thought process. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a flawless photo finish.
