Recently asked my girlfriend to marry me, and I needed a hidden photographer to capture the moment and Chris stepped up and accepted the challenge! He had great pre engagement pictures and post engagement pictures, awesome work and I got the pictures fast with wonderful editing. Great photographer that has a passion for his work! Highly recommend

Me and my fiancée had a wonderful time getting our engagement photos done with Tom. Tom is an amazing photographer and our photos showed it. Not only is he an an amazing photographer. He is very understanding and did everything we wanted and dreamed of and made us very comfortable. I would highly recommend Tom for ANY of your photography needs. You will not be disappointed.

Elena was absolutely amazing, we couldn't be happier with the results! She did our wedding photos and engagement photos and we are just so happy we found her. We were nervous we'd be awkward since we aren't photo people but she was so kind and made the whole experience comfortable and natural. Our photos turned out so gorgeous! I highly highly highly recommend Elena!!

Gabriel did my engagement photos this past weekend and they came out excellent. I asked him to photograph my proposal and he did so without my fiancé even knowing. It was an awesome surprise. This was on a Saturday, and by the following Wednesday I already had the disc of photos mailed to me. He was very nice and did an excellent job. I highly recommend using him for any photos you may need.

My fiance and I are still talking about how romantic and fun our engagement photo shoot was with Stephanie. She made us feel relaxed and comfortable! The experience alone was so worth it. She got our photos edited and sent to us SO quickly and they.are.faaaabulous! We only managed to narrow down our favorites to 30 photos! We are so excited to have her shoot our wedding - not only for her incredible work, but her fun, calming company as well.

Sarah was fantastic! She went the extra mile by setting up a picnic area for me to have a surprise engagement with my now fiancé! She was super excited and professional, giving us many different poses. It was obvious she knew what she was doing and the photos turned out amazing 😊 I highly recommend her!

Anne literally NAILED exactly what I wanted for my engagement photos! I told her rustic, outdoors, yellow grass and she captured exactly what I had in mind! Anne made it feel so natural and easy and worked well with our awkwardness in the beginning!! HIRE ANNE! She is so good and the value is incredible :)

I am so happy with the results of our Engagement photos! Mickey is one of the most down-to-earth and highly creative photographers we have ever seen and experienced. He reached out, recreated the vision I had for the photos (the end product was better than I hoped for) and ensured we were happy with the end results. He made the whole experience personable, intimate and promised a quick turnaround that we hadn't expected. Not only do you get to know him well but Patti was a sweetheart too! They make a great team and are such a pleasure to be around. We will be recommending him to everyone we know and hope to use him for future projects.

I literally don’t have the words to tell you how awesome Lacey have been. She have been an absolute dream to work with. During our engagement shoot she put us at ease straight away, we laughed lots and the photos were just awesome and natural. Lacey did such an amazing job and managed to capture so many wonderful moments! The photos are just out of this world and tell the story of our day so perfectly. Lovin’ it and we will definitely see her on our Wedding day. It was awesome working with you, Lacey! ☺️

Peter did such an INCREDIBLE job with our engagement photo shoot. I have to admit I was a little skeptical because his prices were so reasonable but I could not have been more impressed. He was welcoming and supportive during the entire shoot, encouraged our playfulness, and produced the most incredible images- he even walked into the ocean with us to get a couple of good shoots. I highly recommend him for any of your future needs- my fiancé and I are thrilled!

Mickey went above and beyond for us. He was really helpful at figuring out what kind of shots we wanted to capture and where, very punctual and focused. He was so courteous and nice! His wife was also very helpful and really pleasant to talk with! I would highly recommend Mickey Strider for anyone's engagement photos or otherwise. You can tell he pays extra attention to his work and truly enjoys it. He was an absolute pleasure to work with and cut us a really good deal!! 5 Stars all the way!

Brandi is amazing! We hired her for our official engagement photos on the beach in Del Mar and the pictures turned out so beautiful. Brandi gave us some great ideas for poses and was very patient. I was really worried about my hair because I *brilliantly* decided to curl my hair for a beach shoot and of course the curls dropped right away. Brandi really knows her stuff because her shots made my bad hair day go unnoticed, without taking away from the looks we were going for. I could tell that she really enjoys what she does and I look forward to working with her again!

Maria went beyond helping us capture a very special moment in our lives, she helped pick the exact spot, the manner in which it happened and brought the champagne for afterwards. My birthday surprise to my girlfriend was a trip to San Diego. Unbeknownst to her I was planning my wedding proposal for that trip. We had never been to San Diego before and Maria went out of her way to help choose the best location for the proposal (A particular spot on Sunset Cliffs). I wanted to capture this moment with a professional photographer but I also wanted it to be a surprise. Maria was willing to act as if she was at the spot taking photos to build her own portfolio and if we were willing to be captured in a few. After some initial pictures she had my now fiancé turn toward the water where I was able to get down on my knee and Maria prompted her to turn back around. It was perfect!! In addition to all that she went the extra mile and bought a bottle of champagne (with her own money) for afterward with cups that said 'She Said...' 'Yes'. That was never in the plan she just did it! The pictures turned out amazing. My fiancé was(is) in shock and was very surprised. Couldn't have asked for a better result. So in conclusion if you want a engagement planner, actress, professional photographer, and all around great person I highly recommend Maria Lozano.
