We hired Will to shoot two large group photos for a corporate training and deliver prints by the next business day and he completed the job seamlessly and professionally. He was easy to get in touch with and very reliable. I coordinated this training in 15 different markets with 15 different photographers, and Will was one of our favorites! I would recommend Will for any photography job in the area!

Brad was fantastic! When he arrived at our location, he quickly scanned the scenery, and within seconds was able to determine the most beautiful spots to shoot. He picked several places based on existing architecture, landscape and foliage. His vision was amazing! A true photographer. I was worried about all the people in the area, but he knew how to set up the shots so it looked like we were the only ones there. He was also able to direct us into poses that may have felt unnatural, but translate wonderfully to the finished photo. The results were beautiful! I'm always concerned about color and lighting - I see so many photographers get it wrong, but our photos are truly professional quality. If you want someone who strikes a nice balance between efficiency, artistry, and reasonable pricing (and who doesn't?) then I highly recommend Brad!

Richard was one of the best photographers my family, friends and I have ever worked with in over 30 years of throwing events, weddings and birthdays. He was professional, on-time, felt the vibe of the event (even dressed the part). He had the proofs ready in a timely fashion. I will plan on using him again. He also gained many referrals from my event alone as he was one of the stars. Thank you again.

Brett seems to be a great people person and able to work with our large group for a family photo. He met with us at our chosen location, on a tight schedule and even stayed longer when some were unavoidably delayed in traffic. His estimate was affordable and less than other photographers that we looked into. However, there was no discounted workmanship. The quality of our photo session was professional and expertly handled. There were a few pictures where the camera angle was a challenge (under our circumstances we had elderly folks sitting, etc) but Brett was able to help us edit those shots into great pictures. Our family would highly recommend Brett.

This was a great experience! My son needed a headshot and I didn't know where to start. I looked up some local photographers and read their reviews, I chose Laurens Antoine Photography because of all of the great reviews. The reviews were spot on. Laurens and his staff are casual and professional. He seemed to take his time, yet we were in and out right on schedule. They were able to put my son at ease and the result was fantastic pictures! We will definitely be back.

Where do I begin? Just even meeting them for the first time-they were so professional (they even offered us coffee!). I met with several other photographers, and Matt and Joana were the first to bring samples of pictures and they had GREAT deals. I mean, wedding photography isn't cheap to begin with, but they were fair about everything. Very open to answer questions, too. We had an additional skype meeting closer to the wedding day to go over wedding details and they were so thorough. They reviewed things I had sent over and they were so patient. I dealt with some other vendors who weren't as kind and it actually stressed me out...but not Matt and Joana. They listened. They day OF the wedding, they captured as many moments as possible...and did I mention that they were SO SWEET? They were accommodating to all my requests and they offered suggestions. I really enjoyed their services. If I were to offer one suggestion: it would be to ask in the moment if there are any shots to get. I know that some clients like photographers to be stealthy, but I wanted some additional types of pictures that I forgot to mention in the meeting and it would have been great if joana or matt checked in...but that's just a personal suggestion which may not fit everyone's needs. I guess to find out would be to ask during the Skype sessions if clients want to be more vocal w photographers etc. Anyways, I was so happy I went with Studio Cline. The pictures were great. They are very kind and very fair with pricing. Do not hesitate to go with them!

We love Michael Domingo! He photographed both our engagement shoot and wedding. Before meeting him we had liked his work on his profile. Upon meeting him, we knew we were headed in the right direction. Once he shot our engagement shoot. We knew with absolute certainty that we had made the right choice. His willingness to try new things, lend a helping hand, and more importantly easy going personality made both the engagement and wedding shoot stress-free and easy. Everyone from our 11 year old son to our vendors loved him. We have officially adopted him as a family member…that’s how comfortable he made us.

My wife and I feel so fortunate to have found Richard. From our initial phone call to when he sent the final images, he was an absolute pleasure to work with. He was simultaneously calm, assertive and professional. An added bonus is he has a great sense of humor! When we first got in touch with Richard, he made a concerted effort to learn about us as a couple. He’s a captive listener and you can tell he cares a great deal about catering his storytelling and style to all of his subjects. We did our engagement photo shoot in Angeles National Forest. Richard not only put us at ease with his jokes, he also did something that I believe played an important part in leading to the incredible, evocative photos we ended up with: he asked us to stop for a few minutes, look each other in the eye and say why we loved each other, what qualities we admired. The results were stunning, and not only because Richard is an expert in his craft at a technical level, but also due to the way he masterfully interacts with the people he is working with. After being floored by the quality of the engagement photos we would have been happy if the wedding shots were of the same caliber. But no, Richard and his assistant took it to a new level. What came back to us from Richard looked better than what you see in the best magazines and blogs. Our event was at Hummingbird Nest Ranch and Richard took full advantage of the raw beauty of our venue, putting us and all of our guests in the best light. Whether it was herding cats during the family and bridal party shots or getting in the middle of the dance floor during the reception, Richard made sure to capture all the photos we would have wanted and more. His performance was an A+ and I give him my highest level of recommendation!

Gian and Graciela were amazing photographing our wedding. Since the moment we booked, they were prompt to communicate. Gian was very attentive via email, making sure to know exactly what we wanted (via pinterest, email conversation, phone, etc.) For they day of the wedding, they worked very well with some of our unconventional parts of the ceremony (I had asked for more candid style photography, as well as candid romantic shots, which can be difficult to capture! Plus we're not really photogenic. haha! ) Graciela was so sweet, fixing my dress, flyaways, etc. Both of them together captured our day beautifully, you can tell they make a great team! Thank you so much for your care and attention!

We hired Rob for photographing my daughter's first birthday! Rob did an excellent job! He was actually scheduled for an hour and half but the event extended and so did Rob's patience! We received phone calls and text messages from our guests saying they loved his photography. We have recommended his name to our friends and would hire him for future events too!
