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!

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!

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.

We hired Kelly to be our photographer at our wedding. We hired her because of the quality of work we saw in her portfolio and because of how excellent she was to work with. She is fast to respond, extremely knowledgable, and (most importantly) one of the best photographers around. Our pictures came out exactly how we wanted them. She took beautiful shots that captured everything from the scenery to the special moments of us saying I do. She was very comfortable to work with and knew exactly what we wanted. Before our shoot, we had a Skype call and she went over our questions and helped us find what we wanted for our shoot. I have only fantastic things to say about Kelly. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a great photographer.

Debbie not only has a strong work ethic to get every photograph just perfect for her clients, but she takes a personal and professional pride in her work. Her attention to detail, professional technique, the coaching of subject to get the best photos which highlight the best features come together to produce professional artwork that usually is substantially more expensive. I would recommend to every person thinking of hiring a photographer, you owe it to yourself to look over her work, meet her and compare. She is, hands down, the best game in town for your hard earned dollar.

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!

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!

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.

Heena is just superb with her work! While working with her on our maternity/ family photo session we found her to be knowledgeable and personable which helped us to relax and get some fantastic shots. She is very creative,talented, energetic, meticulous about her work and always carries a pleasant smile. She was extremely patient while working with my 3 year old and gave my little girl a good amount of time. We had to reschedule our appointment due to an event at the location and she accommodated us with no issues. I would definitely recommend and use her in future.

Joni captured some great photos! My husband and I are expecting our first baby and she got some great shots while we were on our Baby Moon in San Diego a few weeks ago. We met her at Coronado Beach on a beautiful day! She came very prepared with lots of ideas on different poses. She was warm and made us feel very comfortable while she captured pictures. We would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for maternity pictures or any other type of portraits. Thank you so much Joni!

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.
