Joanne is one of the most creative photographers we have ever met. She was very professional and she was such a pleasure to work with. We were totally comfortable during the session and she was very punctual. She had a state of the art camera and the finished photos were spectacular; so gorgeous. We would highly recommend Joanne to anyone looking for a photographer for a high end photo shoot.. Joanne, thank-you for a great day; you are amazing! Cathy and Jessica Thank-you Joanne you are wonderful.

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 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!

He was very professional and coordinated well with the photographers. He arrived early to capture the bridal parties getting ready and stayed throughout the evening until the reception was almost over. We are excited to see the beauty he captured of our special day!

I really enjoyed working with Salvador for my headshot. With patience and true talent, he has the ability to get the best possible picture. Salvador also took the time to explain what worked without the Photoshop enhancements many photographers rely on now. I totally appreciated his expertise on the finer points to make a beautiful finished photo.

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

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

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!!!!

Jayson photographed my wedding, and my husband and I could not be more happy with the experience and results! A personal pet peeve of mine is when wedding photographers distract all the guests by getting up close to the ceremony, ruining the experience for everyone watching in person. Jayson is ninja-like in his ability to blend in to the background while he photographs from afar, producing beautiful shots of the ceremony while going completely unnoticed by any of the guests. When it came time to take posed photographs, he did exactly as I asked and moved it along quickly, so it didn’t feel tedious or disorganized. That’s a major plus when you’ve already spent hours organizing every other aspect of the event. I would highly recommend Juxtaposition for your wedding or event!

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!

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.

Shannon was our wedding photographer and made our day even more special by putting us at ease and capturing candid moments of us and our guests throughout the day. She also curated our wedding album and the results are amazing! The album looks like an art book. From start to finish, Shannon made our day and our memories her priority. She is simply the best!

As a dancer (with an interest in modeling), working with photographers on the side is nothing I'm estranged to. Modeling has been part of my journey as an artist, but I can say without hesitation, my experience working with Jonathan has been one of the best. Not only does he have an inviting and warm disposition that left me laughing the entire shoot, but he also has a brilliant eye. He gave me direction and feedback that guided me through the experience so I was able to feel comfortable and confident. He could easily pick out locations that had the best backdrops and lighting without hesitation and made sure that I shined through in every photo. All in all the experience was 10 out of 10 easily. I have had so many friends ask me if I could set them up with him after they saw his final product from our set. He is a born talent in what he does. The integrity of his work shines through with all of his photos. What I truly love most about his work is it enhances natural beauty. He doesn't make people skinnier/taller/whiter teeth/ etc. than they really are; in fact he specifically asked me not to wear fake eye lashes (which is regular for me). Anyone who works with him will have the opportunity to see how beautiful they truly are through other's eyes. That is a gift he gave to me that I will cherish it.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
