We began using Joanne as our family photographer when our son was 6 months old (in Hawaii)…and I'm so happy we did!!! She's help capture his precious infant/toddler years in her Watch Me Grow & Watch Me Grow Some More package…which we all LOVE looking through now that he's almost 6 years old. Joanne is AMAZING with infants & toddlers! She's patient and sweet, and kids love her! We've even used her as our photographer for our preschool…and the images were incredible! Our favorite photo session with her was a couple of months ago at Disneyland! She captured the essence of our favorite times at the place "where dreams come true."

Dominique came highly recommended by a mutual friend. I was looking for someone to photograph our small beach wedding. It was difficult to find a photographer who would photograph a small wedding without charging BIG wedding prices. I guess most people hear "wedding" and they assume a full day of shooting. We just wanted a photographer for a couple of hours since we weren't having a large wedding or reception. Dominique was very professional and worked with our budget. In the end we came to an agreement which seemed fair. My fiance and I met with Dominique and his partner to look at his work and to get acquainted. At that time we gave him our deposit and filled out the contract. I felt very comfortable with them, I knew then that the day of would be just fine. We made sure to keep contact before and the day of the wedding. He contacted me the day of to touch base. It was kind if a blur that day but things turned out perfect. 2 hours does go by fast. In retrospect, I wish I would have hired him for at least 1 more hour because I would have loved to take more photos with our kids. After all the family photos, my husband and I took off with the photographers to take the bride and groom pics. Everything flowed naturally, I felt very comfortable and we had a blast shooting. I even got my wedding dress wet which actually made for some fabulous photos. The end results were as expected. Beautiful photos of a sunset beach wedding. Thank you so much for capturing our special day! We will definitely use you guys in the future and recommend to friends.

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.

50th Anniversary--Jim was very professional yet easy to work with. He went above and beyond what was expected of him. He arrived early, and he surprised us with not only excellent photos but a video as well. We plan on using him again next summer for a family portrait.

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.

I put off having family photos taken for a lot longer than I'd like to admit because I am not a photogenic person. Not only did she take the most beautiful family photos for us, but she took single shots of me that I absolutely love...and I didn't think it was possible! She has an eye for capturing pure beauty in a way that is absolutely unique! She is brilliant!

They took my maternity pictures and they both made me feel so comfortable. I will definitely be working with them again for my last maternity pictures and hopefully for my newborn pictures. They had me do a lot of poses and they welcome your ideas. I fell in love with them!!

Megan captures beautiful pictures that you will cherish forever! She is so sweet and easy to work with. We had her do our maternity pictures at Old Poway Park and our newborn pictures for our second baby at her adorable studio in Fallbrook. We only wish we had found her for our first baby as well! Our 2 year old daughter was in some of the maternity and newborn pictures as well, and Megan was able to capture amazing shots of her too, which isn't always easy since she is quick and always on the go. Megan has beautiful outdoor locations that you can choose from to have your pictures taken, and her studio has the cutest props and backdrops to use for newborn pictures! We adore the newborn pictures she captured of our baby boy and love showing them off to our family and friends! You definitely won't regret choosing Megan for your photography needs! We can't wait to use her in the future!

Scott has done numerous photo shoots for me of my artwork and also portrait work/headshots for promotional purposes. The quality of his work is always amazing and he's very reasonably priced. At request, he provided multiple file formats and sizes. He also shot a top-notch promotional video about me and my artwork - filmed, edited, transitions, music, the whole deal. It is amazing in terms of technical quality and editorial content. I can't recommend him highly enough!

Harmony did an excellent job with the family photo shoot I booked her for right after Thanksgiving. She was such a pleasure to work with. My family and I are so happy with the wonderful photographic memories that we have that were captured by Harmony. She was very professional & kept everyone on task setting up each shot. I’m so grateful that I was able to find her for my family session.

..My complete photography experience with 15th Street Photography from beginning to end was exceptional! I put alot of time into interviewing photographers and reviewing their photo work when it came to my daughters baby pictures as I wanted to find great photography work and also a personality of outgoing openness in someone that loved their work. After seeing Monica's photo work I was greatly impressed and after communicating with her via email and phone I knew I had found the one. Right from the start Monica went above and beyond to find the perfect location, going to different places to check for the right sunlight, if the grass was nice, etc. The day of our photo session I was so impressed with the time she had spent to prepare for our session, the props and ideas she came up with were excellent! I can't say enough great things about Monica's photo work but I will try. I was blown away when I received the images of my daugher. Monica knows her stuff and loooves what she does and it completely is displayed in her end product. Thanks so much Monica for the wonderful experience and caring to make my visions come to life!

I hired Eric to take portraits/headshots. His outdoor, natural light photography aesthetic is really natural, cool, and conveys individuality and genuineness. Working with him was easy, fast, and professional. I will definitely recommend him to other San Diego based individuals looking for beautiful shots.

I have been a client of Joni’s twice! The first time she did our family portraits at Balboa Park and with my then two-year-old son running around and not sitting still (once), she was able to capture many smiling portraits and adorable candids. She was not afraid to get on the floor and in tight spaces to ensure she got great photos of my little one! Second time she did solo photos of my son in and around our home. Joni is very accommodating and has lots of patience when it comes to photographing little ones. She’s also got experience on how to get them to interact with her so they are always looking at the camera! She even was kind enough to take portraits of our Australian cattle mix dog and chihuahua! The dog portraits came out great. Joni is always there to make her clients feel important and she ensures the work is of the highest quality.

I have used Unveiled for wedding coverage and portrait photography. They are professional, friendly, talented and fun. In addition to weddings and portraits, I have seen their commercial work which is also top notch. I have recommended Unveiled to friends who were equally as ecstatic with their coverage and experience.

We have had the pleasure of Keely photographing some pretty special moments in our lives. 5.5 years ago she captured our engagement and really went above and beyond. She ended up hiding under a table for almost an hour Making sure to capture all the excitement and those photos are ones I will cherish forever. She was also there at our wedding, and she gave the same attention to detail and her photos really showed the love we share and the excitement of the day. Then just recently we had our second child and we were blessed to have her take his newborn photos. Her beautiful work has only continued to grow and she has really blown us away. I will forever cherish these tiny still moments she has frozen for us. They mean the world to us and our children will always be able to look back and see the love we have for eachother and for them. He work is always excellent, she always gets the photos to you very quickly. I don’t even think I waited a week! She is very knowledgeable in her profession, she guides you in positioning, which calms my nerves and makes it look easy even with crying babies and rowdy toddlers. There isn’t enough I could say to express my thanks but if you are looking for an outstanding photographer with an eye for authentic beauty look no further. Her photography is as gorgeous and as original as Keely herself. Love you girlie and thank you for our beautiful photos we will cherish forever.

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.

Maribel did our maternity photo shoot and our son's newborn pictures and did such an amazing job! We had a toddler too and was so patient throughout the photo shoots. She was very detailed and even gave us recommendations on what type of clothes/colors/patterns to wear. The pictures were beautiful and something we get to cherish for the rest of our lives. Thank you Maribel for capturing such special moments!! We definitely will recommend you to our friends and family!! -The Cunninghams

I couldn't be more thrilled with the results that phoDesigns delivered! Besides an amazing selection of photos to now share with family and friends, the experience of working with Jamie was incredibly comfortable and professional—exactly what you want from a photographer. I loved that he arrived ahead of time to scope out locations at the park. And I loved that we got to take photos in so many different spots! Ever since these engagement photos were delivered (quickly delivered the photos after the shoot, I might add), I've chosen one of the photos from the long list for each of my desktop backgrounds. Whenever I need some inspiration during the day, I look at those instead of baby animal videos ;) Plus, my family and friends are all sending me texts ending in "!!!!!"—such enthusiastic reactions after sharing our new favorite photos :D Can't wait to print out nice copies and pick out frames to hang them around the house!!! Attached just a sample of several great photos to share with this review. Thanks, phoDesigns!
