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."

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.

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!

Laura did an outstanding job during the photo shoot staying patient with my 17 month old son and orchestrated a beautiful experience for my parents-in-law. And the finished product was absolutely stunning! The photos made me cry! She captured beautiful moments of my family that we will treasure for a lifetime! We've already planned 2 more photo shoots with Laura and will continue to use her as our family photographer! I would HIGHLY recommend Laura Carrasco!

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.

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

Debora did an awesome job with our family portraits. We were visiting San Diego for vacation, so I decided to use Thumbtack to find a photographer. I couldn't be happier. Debora arrived on time, and was extremely patient with our impatient 3 year old. During the shoot, I thought for sure she was having a tough time with us. I was wrong. She hand delivered the photos on a cd later that week. They are all tremendous! Don't hesitate to give Debora a shot. She won't disappoint.

Dan was great!! He photographed my daughters birthday party and got so many great shots!! I decided at the last minute that I had wanted to hire someone and so glad that I did and it was Dan! He did a great job of capturing candid along with portrait shots. With all the pictures that he took the day of the party he got everything sorted through and edited super fast! I will definitely be calling Dan when I need a photographer again!!

He did a wonderful job. He even brought along with him an additional photograph at no charge to make sure that the lighting and everything was perfect for my products. I highly recommend him for any business that needs to have their products showcased a's well as any family photography. The pictures of the girls came out amazing and he even took home certain items I needed to be shot in the studio his fees are very reasonable and he is very nice and has very creative ideas. I would recommend him more than other people that I've worked with I highly suggest hiring him for any photography needs

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

Ashley made everything so easy for us! Having teenagers it’s hard to know how they’re going to act. But she told us exactly what to do, where to walk, pose, etc which made the process so easy for my family of 6! These are our first family photos in 11 years and I am so in love with them all! She was very responsive to my emails and texts, on time (even early checking out good shooting spots since we chose a busy location on a Saturday) and we got our edited images the same day!! I would recommend Ashley to anyone who is looking for a great photographer that produces beautiful work and is super affordable. Just what I’ve been wanting for years. Thank you Ashley!!

I am so glad I chose Mickey for my senior portraits. He was great to work with and really cared about creating pictures I would love. We worked together to create a mood board of poses and shots I wanted and he scheduled the shoot for as long as it took to get them right. Mickey continually sought my input to make sure I was happy with the results. I am completely satisfied not only with the final product but also with the entire experience! I would highly recommend Mickey to anyone looking for a portrait photographer who really cares about making his subjects look great!

Robert took my senior pictures and I was extremely happy with them. I am usually very picky with how pictures of myself turn out but these were great! He was so patient and is so skilled at capturing exactly what you are looking for. I am so pleased with my experience. He is beyond talented and passionate about what he does. The pictures were high quality and looked very professional. I was eager to show my pictures to all my family and friends. I would absolutely recommend Robert Dennis for your photography needs. I can guantee you will not be disappointed.

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.

We found Lacey when we were looking for someone to take pictures for our family to celebrate my mom’s 70th. We are from out of town so we were a little nervous about choosing the right photographer, but everything went better than we imagined. Lacey was very patient and friendly and her pictures are the best ones that my family and I have ever taken. I’ve attached a few. She was able to capture everyone’s personalities perfectly! Thank you Lacey!!

Five stars aren't nearly enough for Shannon Hammond Photography! From the ease of the booking process to the timely receipt of the photos, our experience working with Shannon was fantastic. She is professional, fun and pleasant to work with - our kids had a great time during the photo shoot - creative, and most important of all, a competent and experienced photographer. She took the time to listen to what we wanted, yet offered creative suggestions for location and backgrounds. The resulting family photos have become our favorites. We will be working with Shannon for our future photography needs and cannot recommend her highly enough. Thank you Shannon Hammond Photography!

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
