Dan did a great job at our small informal celebration despite the challenging sunset lighting on a patio overlooking the water. He brought fill-in lights that were unobtrusive and arrived early enough to do all of his test shots before guests arrived. He communicated clearly before the event and was responsive to requests during the event. The photos were on the website within 4 days and look great. I would use him again.

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.

Christina & Jake made this year's family photo session a wonderful, hassle free experience -- which can be challenging when a 5 year boy is involved! We don't live in California, so I was initially stressed about the time involved to research photographers & their styles in addition to a location that would be unique. From the initial request for info all the way through receiving the portrait package -- they were extremely responsive, amazing & were very thoughtful in their location recommendations based on what I was looking for (even though I didn't really know what I was looking for). In person, they immediately made us all feel at ease and made it a fun experience. The pictures turned out AMAZING ...and they sent them to me the next night -- UNBELIEVABLE turnaround time! I would highly recommend them; in fact I have already told my friends who live in the SD area about them. We would definitely use them again!!!!

Outstanding, absolutely phenomenal photography! Sasha & Yanek photographed my engagement session and wedding and the photos well exceeded my expectations. They make you feel so comfortable with them that you're so naturally relaxed and look amazing in your photos. I had the opportunity to work with Magdalena for a boudoir session before the wedding and she was amazing too! You don't get better than Wasio when it comes to photography. I will forever use them for my formal photo sessions. I love these guys! I am so honored to have had them as my photographers last year.

Jesse and his team were highly professional and accessible leading up to our event and throughout the night. We had two photographers total; one at the photo booth with lighting and one roving the party. this was a perfect set up for what we required. Will definitely book Jesse next time my company comes to town for a party!

Joni Connor is not only a true artist, but a true professional. I can see the care, and time she puts in even before her shoots. She scoped out the area a day before hand, making sure to note just the perfect lighting, and allowed time for the tone of her photos to settle in her mind before actually performing her craft. Joni did a phenomenal photo shoot for me last year for my Chinese Medicine -acupuncture and herbal practice. The quality of the photos is exquisite, she understands texture and mood. I was so happy with the results, that I even received a patient out of one of my business Instagram posts! If you want a talented, thorough, dedicated, accommodating and professional photographer who possesses true artistry , I would contact Joni. I was very satisfied with her work and would recommend her to anyone!

If you are looking for photographers look no further! Dia and her husband are true professionals who created wonderful memories for us. They braved the rain for our wedding day, all while still taking truly wonderful photos. They made every effort to please our timeframe and we couldn’t have asked for more. When we head back to Huntington Beach for more photos we now have found our photographers. Thank you guys once again

Puneet S Ghai photography did an unbelievably amazing job with our family photo shoot! The ease he set for each scene showed through in each and every one of our photos. He was kind, professional, punctual, creative and FUN! I can’t stress enough how nice it was to have such a fun experience taking these photos. There were no awkward moments! He made my entire family very comfortable. Especially my one year old daughter. She LOVED Puneet. Which really helped with getting great shots! She was constantly looking towards him and smiling, it was incredibly sweet! Puneet took so many photos of our family and had them beautifully edited and returned to us within 5 days! I am beyond impressed with his skill level on all accounts and highly recommend him to anyone!

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.
