My wedding photographer fell through the cracks, I was getting married on Wednesday & I met Gabriel the Monday prior, 3 days before to be exact. We met - he was exceptionally friendly & professional. We agreed to a deal. He delivered on his word & we were blown away with his talent, his eye for exceptional photography, his kindness, his bilingualism & all around excellence. The wedding was incredible 1 of the best days of my life thus far & could not have been done without a true pro - Mr Gabriel Hernandez. When your special day is on the horizon look nowhere else but to Gabriel. He will deliver on his word & provide you exceptional photography a exceptional attitude exceptional patience/quality within your budget. To sum it up Gabriel you over-delivered & I will let all my people, family, friends, colleagues know that with Gabriel you are in excellent hands. God bless you & yours Gabriel.

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.

We got Susan to do cover our wedding. She was so accommodating and was one of the first to reply on my Thumbtack inquiry. Not only are her rates very competitive the quality of her work exceeds expectations! She and her fiance have an eye for detail and you can really see it when they work. They never rush you and it never felt like "oh lets get to over with". She always takes her time and looks for the best angles. On our first meeting my husband and I knew we booked the right photographer (this was roughly a month before our wedding! talk about short notice). I have nothing but good things to say about our experience. She even was gracious enough to say yes to some last minute location changes. Another thing was her patience! - We had to have all our vendors vetted since our wedding was inside a Naval base - and on such short notice she was able to accomplish all the nitty gritty paper work. It was quite a hassle on her end but was so nice about it. So thank you Suzy! Her bubbly and friendly demeanor would put you at ease, and it does help if you're getting married! lol. We highly recommend her I would give 6 stars if I could! :D we're so happy with the teaser shots she sent us we can't wait to see more photos.

This sweet and enthusiastic photographer was the best! She was interested in what kind of photos I wanted and listened to my ideas and then upon all of the pre-planning to meet my needs she came to the shoot with a creative energy that was inspiring. You can tell she loves what she does. She goes above and beyond to give the best experience and the best of photos for her clients. All good in all areas! I give this wonderful photographer my highest and most enthusiastic recommendation! Awesome experience! The most beautiful photo's! Can't wait for the opportunity to meet with her for another fun photo shoot!

I had a great time shooting with Susan! She made me feel comfortable and I had fun during the session. She does amazing work, listens to what you want and has the best ideas to get the right shots. She also does amazing portraits with natural lighting. I got sneak peaks within 24 hours and got all my editing pictures back within days of shooting, I couldn't believe how fast it was! I definitely recommend her for any type of photography session.

We needed a product photographer,which is a big enough challenge by itself. But we ALSO needed an ART GLASS product photographer for our new e-commerce website. There are not many of those around. We needed approximately 1200 pix and they all needed to be perfect. Clay came in after the first photographer self-destructed. He brought in a totally professional attitude and an experienced artistic ability that really added a creative artistic facet to the job. Being artists ourselves we were very pleasantly suprised by the added creative abilities that Clay brings to our work. I can tell you that his photography makes our Art Glass look BETTER than real life and that never happens!

More than Outstanding! Very talented and professional photographer. Clay is a very driven and passionate man who works in a timely manner! He provides lots of creative ideas and has a special eye that somehow combines creative and professional, perfectly. Clay and his assistant came to shoot a commercial industry shoot. He was very time efficient, talented and most of all an enjoyable photographer to have around! 10 stars!

Laura was WONDERFUL! I could not have asked for a better photographer for my beautiful outdoor wedding. She was available last minute and for a great price. She captured every moment of that special day. From me getting ready to the night ending with everyone celebrating, she took so many beautiful pictures. Laura worked very well with us and was very genuine and sweet. She cares about making sure she gets as many great pictures as she can in the amount of time she has. I would definitely recommend her to others.

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!

Palo and Alex were our wedding videographers and put together an amazing edit! It was super easy working with them leading up to our big day and the day-of. They're fun people and got along well with our photographers and other vendors. We received our deliverables ( + raw footage) within reasonable amount of times. HIGHLY recommend them for any wedding. Your wedding day really is a blur, and we were more than happy with our decision to go with Palo to capture all the feels of the day/night.

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 had an awesome overall experience with Wasio faces! Sasha and Yaneck are wonderful and really made my first experience getting headshots taken a fun and professional one! They made me feel so comfortable and at home as well. If you are looking for professional photographers either for weddings, headshots or any other event, I highly recommend Wasio!

Deborah has a keen sense of what makes a great photo and has the ability to capture those unforgettable moments, even the ones you never saw happen. She took action shots of my son during his beach volleyball tournament and they were amazing. I used to think I could take a pretty good picture with my phone, now I know what a huge difference a professional photographer makes. I would highly recommend her if you need some professional and amazing pics! We also had her take my daughters graduation announcement photos and they were outstanding. She really knows how to get that perfect shot!

I have followed Deborah's becoming a skilled photographer, including taking great shots of nature, people having fun, formal portrait setting and more. She can definitely can frame the snots and gets people to relax and have fun. This is doubly impressive in that she has done this while still working full time in the fitness industry.

I hired Urreola Film Weddings for my wedding that took place on March 5, 2016. I hired Raul and Christie for their true love package that included both photos and video. I have to say that booking them was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding day. They, first of all are very professional and very considerate to mine and my husbands needs. They captured every moment I could have possibly wanted and more! I wasn't aware of how much of the day I missed until I received my photos and video.(which I got in less than a month!)They also made my bridal party feel comfortable in front of the camera as well as my guests. Raul is hilarious! He definitely got us laughing which made the footage look so great! Christie is really a really sweet and fun person! I love having her there to capture all of the intimate parts as well as the details. I am so happy that they were there so make my day complete and now my husband and I have something to look back on and cherish for the rest of our lives.

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.

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!!!!

Wow! Absolutely incredible! I would definitely recommend Harmony, she is such an incredible photographer! My fiance and I did an engagement photo shoot with her and we were very impressed. She was very personal and down to earth. She allowed us to have fun and just be ourselves, the majority of our photos were candid and made the photos so much better instead of having awkward stiff poses. Her eye for detail is spectacular! She knows the best angles and lighting which is key in photography. Not to mention, her editing skills are impeccable. Her creativity was amazing and you can tell that she was meant to be a photographer! I am beyond impressed and so glad we had Harmony take our photos! So, if you are looking for an incredible photographer for a great rate and to have amazing photos that you will smile back on, I highly recommend Harmony!

Harmony is by far the best photographer I've worked with! With her charismatic personality, I felt very relaxed, I even forgot there was a camera separating us! She has a creative eye and always comes up with the best shots, angles, background, and poses. I liked how she had a mix of formal and creative poses. There wasn't a dull moment during the shoot. She edited my photos so quickly and they came out even better than I had imagined! Even before the photo shoot, she had excellent communication with me, was always responsive to my concerns, and prepared me well for the photo shoot. Harmony is very genuine and is very passionate about her photography, which shows in her work. I will definitely use her in the future and highly recommend hiring her!

Glenn Tjang helped us with our family pictures (indoor and outdoor) and we truly enjoyed working with him. Before each sessions, he would make sure to gather information about his client(s), to write notes on our goals and expectations, and to excecute them. I love the fact that he is always open for suggestions and able to adjust with our schedule easily. As parents with 2 young children, I know how challenging it is for a photographer to capture the best of us. But Glenn has exceeded our expectations. Glenn Tjang is not only very passionate about his love toward photography, but he is also very professional to work with, always on-time, loves kids, very patience, and brings in tons of creative ideas. One important thing for us when we look for a photographer, is someone who treasure memories, who loves what he/she is doing,and who put interest in his client. I have made the right decision by choosing Gleen Tjang, as our family photographer. The results are amazing and I can absolutely treasure these pictures for years to come.
