I had the pleasure of coordinating a beautiful wedding and had the privilege of working with Julie Rodriguez. I had heard she was the best at weddings so I booked her. Boy, was that the best decision! Julie was not only professional, on time and prepared, she handled both families with dignity and respect. She came super prepared for anything to happen... And let me tell you, things happened! It poured the day of the wedding with sideways rain and Julie handled everything like a champ and was very positive about the weather change. She had already researched umbrella pictures ahead of time just in case it did rain. Her positivity bubbled out of her and it was contagious! The bride and groom loved the umbrella pictures the most and the bridal party had a blast with the props Julie brought. I feel if Julie wasn't there to save the day with amazing photo ideas incorporating umbrellas and the rain, the bride and groom would of Ben disappointed. But thank goodness I booked Julie!!! If you want gorgeous pictures that you will cherish a lifetime and someone who really takes pride in her job and wants what's best for her clients, Julie Rodriguez is the only way to go. She will undoubtedly take breath taking pictures, research the location and come overly prepared and you will fall In love with her genuine personality. If you want pictures that capture emotion and those special memories then you need Julie! To me, great photos are everything. That's how you remember the amazing day, event or person after years have passed. I hope everyone reading this rating will hire Julie without hesitation like I did and make one of the best decisions for your event! Thanks again Julie, you're the best! Suzanne

Heather did such a wonderful job during my photo shoot. Before the shoot she helped me prepare very well by creating a Pinterest board for potential looks and conference calls to discuss parking, location, hair and what type of makeup will look best in the pictures. During the shoot she was very friendly, punctual, and made me feel at ease while taking the pictures. She was very professional, outgoing, friendly, and made sure I got the best shots. After the photoshoot, I was very surprised how quickly Heather uploaded the photos, she also kept me updated the entire process. Everyone who saw Heather "in action" was very impressed and now want to book her! If you want quality service, photos, and a great photographer, please book Heather! Thank you again Heather, for such a great photoshoot and making my birthday special!

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!!!!

As a bride on budget wedding photography can be extremely overwhelming. We are a simple couple who was interested in natural light photography to capture our special day. Our theme was modern vintage with beachy vibes and Olga nailed it from the very beginning. from the first glance of her website we could tell that she was more than capable of shooting the natural romantic look we were looking for. She was willing to work within our budget and came very well prepared to our first (and only) meeting. Her package included a complimentary engagement shoot, which was wonderful because we didn't have a chance to get one done. We wanted to include our energetic pup in the photo shoot as well, since pets were not allowed oat our wedding venue. She was totally open to the idea and did an AMAZING job capturing our little love. She arrived on time and ready to rock! It was a sunset shoot so she was focused on getting us in position for the perfect angles and had no problem kindly asking folks to to step aside so we can have the proper backdrops. It took her little under an hour to get all the shots we requested and they turned out absolutely adorable. We felt so comfortable and in very good hands for the big day. On the day of, she arrived to our hotel early and had already begun taking pics. She worked seamlessly with our videographer and maneuvered through our busy bridal with ease to get all the necessary getting ready shots. The Groom's suite was downstairs from ours so it was a breeze for her to get his pre-ceremony shots as well. With such a large wedding party (23 in total!) Olga did a great job identifying and highlighting all the VIPs such as the MOH, BM, grandparents and parents, while documenting all the personality of our big bunch. She even kindly offered to escort me and a few of bridesmaids to the venue. Let's just say it was the most memorable ride of life! Olga is a true professional and will do anything in her power to make sure her clients are taken care of and this was no exception. The wedding photos turned out absolutely amazing! My only wish there with two of her, to capture twice the memories. Oh, it was also extremely windy for a summer day. She did a fantastic job of using the elements to her advantage and creating some truly romantic shots. We did go an hour over schedule and Olga had no problem staying later to make sure she covered all the main events of the night. She even sent us a few pics to cherish while on our honeymoon. I can't thank her enough for working with us and recommend her 100%.

Steve shot our engagement ceremony. He was punctual and very professional. During the ceremony it was like he wasn't even there but from the pictures he took, he was everywhere. This was great, as I've seen many photographers be intrusive in similar events. During the formal family pictures, he and his assistant, Isela, had a fun, positive vibe and positioned people and that brought out the best in everyone and it showed in the pics. He captured the essence of our special day and we could not be happier with the results.

It was an amazing experience working with Heena. She puts her heart into her work and it is visible in her projects/pictures. She is very professional and organized. She has a huge collection of props and backgrounds to match your theme. She has experience with babies and is super patient. She is willing to work that extra mile to make her customer happy and this what makes her different from any of other photographers. I will be hiring her again for my child’s first birthday and cake smashing. Thank you Heena for all your hard work.

I booked Meg Marie Photography for the my son's very first birthday party and I am so impressed her pictures as well as her passion and professionalism. She is really friendly and has warm personality to take children's pictures and that surely comes out to her pictures. I met with her for about 30-45 minutes before the event date so that I can clearly communicate what kind of photos I want. She came to the event on time and introduced herself to my guests before taking pictures of them. I really appreciate that Meg went out of her way to take pictures of my guests that they really appreciate as everyone wants to keep some good family pictures. It turned out to be presents for my guests. Thank you for amazing pictures. I am so lucky to find you!

Robert did a great job taking pictures at our party. He was on time and stayed the entire party which was longer than expected. He was very engaged with our guests and the birthday boy (although subtle) and took great photos of them. He also provided the photos right away which was very much appreciated.

Christie and Raul did an amazing job photographing my son's birthday party. They were a pleasure to have at our party and made everyone feel at ease having their picture taken. They captured so many amazing shots for us. I'm usually the one taking pictures so I loved that I could spend time with my family and enjoy the moment while they took pictures. I will definitely be using them again and would highly recommend them to anyone looking for photographers for an event.

Heloísa photographed my son's first birthday party and we absolutely loved having her there. She was a joy to be around and did great connecting with all the kids, but was very professional at the same time. The photos we have seen so far are beyond amazing and will be treasured forever. We are so happy she was there to capture such a special moment for us!

Kamrin and her assistant, Carmen are SO awesome! I felt like we'd known each other for years as soon as she walked in the door. She made the whole process easy and comfortable. The whole day was catered to the photos we wanted and she even helped us get started on a timeline. She was super quick with everything so our family and wedding party weren't just standing around waiting for their turn. I would 100% work with her again! I love her!

How can I even begin to describe my experience with Janelle as my photographer? She is AMAZING. From the start she was accommodating with pricing/packaging, she took time to meet me and ask what I wanted from her as a photographer. She even followed my wedding pintrest board to see my picture inspiration. She is soooo organized and had me type out a list of what poses I wanted with the bridal party and family and was on time the day of the wedding. And OF COURSE the most important part... the pictures turned out spectacular, I am truly blown away. I couldn't be any happier. She had the whole gallery sent to me just under a month from the wedding day. From the bridal party pictures, bridal portraits, family, ceremony, the dances, and just pictures of all the decor she captured it all spot on! Thank you Janelle!

I hired Ian for my sons 3rd birthday party. I was hesitant to make the investment at first but I am so happy that I did. I was able to enjoy my son and be in the moment while Ian took care of capturing all the precious moments. The photos I received were wonderful, and were sent within just a few days! I am looking forward to receiving the highlights video, which I am sure will also be wonderful! Ian was patient, and genuine, and my son felt very comfortable having him around. Ian was professional, and I am grateful I made the investment. I would hire Ian again in a heartbeat.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
