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.

Laurens is engaged, focused, and determined to get the shot that will communicate to your audience exactly what you want them to see. I cannot begin to describe how much I normally hate going somewhere to have my photo taken. My experience with Laurens turned that around. Not only does Laurens produce a high-quality end product -- the photo was great -- he is also very adept at working with business people. His environment is relaxed, and he will be able to coax more personality out of you than you think possible to find in a photo. Every part of the process was service-oriented, all the way down to sending someone out to the street to get me when I got a little lost on my way to his studio. He was quick to provide the final photos, and greatly aided me in making appropriate selections. When it is again time to update my PR materials, I will be heading back.

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.

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.

Danielle was absolutely amazing to work with. She was very interactive with all the guests and was able to send over the image files almost immediately. We hired Danielle last minute for our NPO Launch Event when our photographer cancelled on us and she was very accomodating for this being a last minute event. We hope to work with her again in the near future and highly recommend her for everyone!

It was a great experience! Danielle was very professional and offered advice and tips before I arrived to ensure I got the most out of the shoot. We shot in several very cool locations in addition to her studio and I was very pleased with the results! She was able to showcase the "inner me" in the photos, which is something that other photographers I've worked with haven't been able to do.

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.

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!

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 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.

I've worked with quite a few photographers and I've never dealt with someone like Chris. Chris amazed me the first time I shot with him because I couldn't believe the amount of respect he had for me as a woman and how he worked with my body as if it were art. He will help you, ask you questions to assure you're comfortable, and to make sure you get the best of what you're asking from him. I couldn't recommend someone more. He is truly my favorite!

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.

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.

What we want from a photo session: Every year since we had kids we took a family picture for our Xmas card & for our memory book. After trying out many photographers over 8 years, this year I think we have found an excellent photographer. Fangting was early for our photo session & we were 30 minutes late because we had to drive from Huntington Beach where we live to Poway about 1 hr 45 mins away. We chose this particular location because one of our friends had taken their family portrait here & it turned out great for them. This year we wanted a more industrial-looking backdrop for our annual Xmas card, since we usually end up at the beach or park. When we met Fangting in person she was warm, understanding & pleasant, plus she came prepared. She scouted out the location before we arrived, had drinking water for us & even had snacks for our kids (who are 8 & 5 years old). As we progressed through our session she was very patient, easy to get along with & was open to our suggestions for poses. Our kids actually cooperated during the shoot. We had fun working with her. Delivery & quality of our photos: We had our photo session 11 days before Xmas so we were pressed for time to get our Xmas card done & sent out to our family & friends. I asked Fangting if she could email me 4 good photos before the rest of the photo package was done. She was very accommodating & fast about helping me get my Xmas card done on time! Fangting's photography & editing skills with color & lighting are excellent. I love the sharp, vibrant & beautiful photos of our family this year. Price: Fangting's pricing for our photo shoot is affordable & reasonable for us. Overall: Communication between us & Fangting was easy & stress-free. Quality of our photos were fantastic or should I say Fangtastic :-). Delivery of our photos was fast. Price was affordable. I really appreciate a great professional who exceeds my expectations bc it saves me time & energy and makes my life easier.

Fangting was the most helpful and caring photographer I could have ever had, not only was she an amazing photographer but she always checked in on me to see how I was doing as a bride and made sure I had my timeline together and everything else planned. She did more than her job, and her pictures were proof! I would recommend her to anyone who wants good quality pictures. She is well worth every penny, her love for photography made the biggest difference. I've seen pictures done by other photographers for my friends and they said they wished they chose her, I felt like I was in a magazine. Thanks fang for giving me the wedding album I couldn't have even dreamed of, my husband and I are more than pleased.

Jim recorded my Dad's Memorial service which we will share with some older relatives who could not travel. He did so much more than we were expecting! He came with 2 cameras, set up his own audio equipment, just in case the church equipment failed, spent more time recording the reception, including an artful review of the memory pictures. We didn't even know he was there...very professional and competent.

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.

My husband and I are so lucky to have found Mike and Sofia of You+Me/R3 Films to shoot our wedding video. Not only are they the most fun people ever, they are also super good at what they do! I was never comfortable being in front of the camera and I always thought it was super awkward kissing in front of strangers but our meeting with them prior to the event definitely put me at ease. They made us feel like we were long-time friends. And even if I still felt nervous in front of the camera the day of, they work so seamlessly that I sometimes forgot they were even there documenting the whole thing. They are true professionals, making sure to coordinate with other photographers and vendors to ensure the best cinematography possible; they sat with us to discuss their vision of our video based on our personality; they scoured the venue looking for the best backdrop; they use top of the line equipment so you know you're getting the best quality film; they had their own microphone so the video will have quality audio and not muffled sounds; they were on time --early actually which was awesome; they are priced so much more reasonably than other videographers out there without skimping on the outcome. Basically, if you want the best experience with your videographers on one of the most important days of your life, you will not go wrong with choosing Mike and Sofia. There's no one better!

Mike and Sofia did our son's wedding a few days ago at the Villa in San Juan. They took the extra time to take them to the Mission to get more footage. Our photographer with over 30 years shooting weddings said they were one of the most professional teams she had ever worked with and everyone at the wedding loved them. You already know this video will be done with the eyes of artists. I wish I could give them 10 stars!

My fiance and I hired Chasing Light to do our photo and video for our wedding. Their pricing was perfect for what we were looking for and we were very excited to be getting both photo and video by the same team. We recently had our engagement photos and cannot begin to explain how happy we are to have chosen them. Our photographer, Russ, was very flexible with the date and even helped us find the perfect location. He definitely listened to what we had in mind and was even ok with my fiance wearing his sunglasses for some of the shots. Russ was very easy to work with and had 2 preview images back to me within the next hour! On top of that, he had the rest of our images ready the next day and they are everything we hoped for and more! I have friends who had to wait weeks to get their engagement photos back. Needless to say, we are obsessed with our engagement photos and CANNOT wait to see how our wedding photos and video turn out.

My husband and I were so lucky to find Tricia. She is an amazing photographer! We had so much fun during our engagement session and the shots captured some great moments. She made us feel so comfortable that we forgot the camera was there and the pictures really captured our personalities. I was so happy with our engagement pictures that I decided to a boudoir shoot and give my husband the photo album as a wedding gift. At first, I was worried that I wouldn’t like enough of the pictures to make an album, not because I wasn’t confident in her abilities, but because I have curves and by no means have the perfect body but, Tricia made me look amazing! In fact, I had trouble only choosing 40 pictures ☺ Yay!!! My husband loved the album and was very surprised when he got it. There are many things that make Tricia great but one thing I love about her is that she sends you ALL the pictures from each shoot. I have heard stories of other photographers saying they will give you all the pictures but only send the ones “they” like. We have not seen the pictures of the wedding yet because we just got married on July 12th but I have no doubt that they will be fabulous. My husband and I also had the privilege of meeting Tricia’s husband the day of the wedding. He was just as great and she is. He hung out with the guys and took pictures of them getting ready and they had a great time with him (per my husband). I could tell that LJ made the guys feel just as comfortable as Tricia has made us feel because when I got to the “first look” location they were joking as if they had known each other for years. They were quick and efficient during the first look and the pictures with our wedding party. During our wedding they were visible without being in your face like the paparazzi. I even got to dance with LJ for half a song and had a blast. We couldn’t be happier with our choice of photographers and are so thankful for everything they did. I look forward to working with Tricia for all my other important events and would recommend her in a heartbeat. If you want the best photographer, she is your girl!

Tricia & her husband were so awesome! We had narrowed our thumbtack quotes down to two potential photographers & after speaking to Tricia we hired her without talking to our other option as her personality clicked with ours. On the day of our wedding they were on time & prepared. Their direction was great & the pictures truly show their experience. We spent some time before the wedding taking couple shots & those came out fantastic. Tricia had researched our site beforehand & was prepared so we utilized our time well. We could not have asked for a more professional photography team & feel grateful to have lucked out with finding them!

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.

We found Martina while looking at photos of other weddings at our selected venue, The Los Angeles Arboretum and Botanic Garden. I'm so glad we did! What immediately stood out was her candid style, which is perfect for my husband and I. I'm a photography enthusiast, and have always worried about finding a wedding photographer that would capture "natural" shots. I'm not a fan of saccharine Pinterest wedding fluff like colorful smoke bombs, "Mr. and Mrs." props, etc. Martina is a purist like us! She arrived at the venue hours before the wedding so we could take posed shots of just the groom and myself in various areas. It was sweltering that day, over 90 degrees, but Martina kept her cool and was very patient with us. She kept her patience even while shuffling 20+ family members for group photos - never an easy task with a big family! She did a wonderful job capturing details beyond typical wedding documentation too. Some shots that come to mind: me talking to a resident venue peacock that had wandered into frame, my husband and I admiring a grasshopper right before walking down the aisle (hey, it's a good luck symbol!), plus photos of all the custom event details like flowers, paper products, and place settings. She excels at documentary-style photography, and is really gifted at picking up on what the bride and groom are passionate about. Once the wedding reception was underway, I lost track of Martina entirely save for the occasional flash bulb. I've been to weddings where the photographer is in the background of every guest photo, lurking and intruding on guests. Martina was the total opposite - she captured all the important shots but never once blocked anyone's view! I truly don't know how she did it. I can say with assurance that she did the work of 2 people all by herself. I loved her work before she was hired, and our photos came out even better than expected. I highly recommend Martina for your important life event.

We were lucky to have found Martina. She is amazing and easy to work with. She is a great artist. When I was trying to find a wedding photographer I knew how important it was. If you have a perfect wedding but bad photography, your memory will just be ruined. Martina performed beyond my expectations. I knew on the day of our wedding she was so talented, and also when the photos came out. She just made our perfect wedding completely perfect. Everyone loves our wedding photos. We would recommend her to anyone. Thank you again Martina. Scott & Mae June 4,2015 Intimate beach front wedding

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!!!!

..My complete photography experience with 15th Street Photography from beginning to end was exceptional! I put alot of time into interviewing photographers and reviewing their photo work when it came to my daughters baby pictures as I wanted to find great photography work and also a personality of outgoing openness in someone that loved their work. After seeing Monica's photo work I was greatly impressed and after communicating with her via email and phone I knew I had found the one. Right from the start Monica went above and beyond to find the perfect location, going to different places to check for the right sunlight, if the grass was nice, etc. The day of our photo session I was so impressed with the time she had spent to prepare for our session, the props and ideas she came up with were excellent! I can't say enough great things about Monica's photo work but I will try. I was blown away when I received the images of my daugher. Monica knows her stuff and loooves what she does and it completely is displayed in her end product. Thanks so much Monica for the wonderful experience and caring to make my visions come to life!

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!

Jimmy was a very easygoing and flexible photographer. He was very patient as he photographed our large extended family of 15 (including my wily 3 year old son!). We went over in our allotted time and he graciously didn't charge us more for that. Need I say that he was a great value. We got our pictures, edited, back so quickly too, which made it nice because we needed some of the pictures for our holiday cards. He responded to emails very quickly. It should be noted that we were a very rambunctious, 'Type A' sort of group and we provided a lot of the ideas of how we would be composed in each picture. We might have benefitted from more direct guidance from Jimmy on how to be arranged, what angles would look best on us, and getting both kids and adults to look into the camera, but he was probably just going with the flow. A small comment, because we think he would provide that guidance if we were to ask for it. We would definitely utilize his services again! Thanks Jimmy!

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.

He gives clear directions and guidance during the session while at the same time gives you freedom to release your inner wild child spirit. But above all, I would say Glenn's greatest strengths are his vision and creativity in transforming a simple idea into something spectacular. His talents and resourcefulness would put you in awe, and you would not be disappointed when you see your photos. Those captured moments by Glenn would be memorable and a treasure to keep for years to come.

TALENTED, REASONABLE AND DEPENDABLE PHOTOGRAPHER We eloped to Imperial Beach (San Diego) and wanted a photographer for our small ceremony. Some who replied wouldn’t even come without guests or had to be a two hour minimum and MOST others were “off the charts” expensive. Gee, I only wanted some shots of our ceremony and of us together afterward, less than an hour. Enter Harp from Best San Diego Photographers! Harp replied quickly to my Thumbtack inquiry, answering my questions and giving me a “real” price; not a bait and switch, plus we received a video of our ceremony as well, which is a priceless addition! Harp followed up with a phone call and I found him to be professional, but yet friendly and warm, and most importantly, he understood what we wanted. Harp consistently touched based with us and answered any further questions that popped up, so I never felt like he “took the deposit and ran”. He arrived 30 minutes early, which honestly was a relief because choosing someone in another city is always a bit scary with all the scams going on. Harp was just as friendly in person – even more so. My husband and I felt comfortable immediately. Harp not only took the photos he wanted from his professional eye, but he stopped to ask us what we wanted and didn’t leave without asking if there were any other shots we’d like. He even left us with an adorable rap song of congratulations, but unfortunately, I couldn’t talk him into adding that to our video  The delivery of our photos was extremely prompt, and again, he responded immediately (and more than once) when this blond couldn’t find something on our portrait gallery. Quality, professional, friendly and dependable are but a few words to describe Harp. Thanks for making our day less stressful with forever memories! Harp, you rock (and rap)! 

From the start she was accommodating with pricing/packaging, she took time to meet me and ask what I wanted from her as a photographer.

She is soooo organized and had me type out a list of what poses I wanted with the bridal party and family and was on time the day of the wedding. And OF COURSE the most important part... the pictures turned out spectacular, I am truly blown away. I couldn't be any happier.

5 stars isn't enough for this chick! For the record, I have taken boudoir photos at least 15× over 10 years and always felt my pics could have been better.. NONE have compared to the work of the Stella Lu Co. Stephanie is naturally gifted at getting the most flattering images of your natural beauty. What started out as a boudoir shoot ended up feeling like a high fashion pro shoot! I will continue to work with Stephanie and highly recommend her services to anyone who is new or experienced with boudoir photography.

The project has finished but I for sure won't need to look for another photographer next time. I have everything I need with him as he's a great artist behind the camera and in Photoshop. He's so young but knows so much about lighting and studio photography. I totally recommend him. He's THE guy!

What a talented guy. I'm glad I hired Adrian because he's so fresh and creative. My co-workers loved what he did with our product. We are a starting company and we decided to hire him after seeing his work and his true passion for photography. I even learned a lot from the day of the photo shoot and it was a very fun experience. He didn't just clock out right after time was over. He actually kept taking photos for about 45 minutes more making sure everything was looking good. Thanks Adrian!!

I loved working with Joseph! He was extremely patient and understanding with my two young kids. I have a three years old and a 6 months old sons. Joseph managed to capture awesome pictures of my boys. Anyone with kids would know kids are very hard to take pictures of because they don't sit still. Joseph made sure I felt comfortable and included me with the photos. And when I did get the photos I was so in love with it. The quality and the edit was great. I recommend him for your photography needs.

My experience with Erin was incredible! She was so easy to work with and always available when I had questions. I loved my wedding photos. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer because she captured my wedding day perfectly. I highly recommended her! She has a natural talent for photography! :)

Erin was amazing to work with! She took newborn photos of my daughter when she was 4 days old! Erin was gentle, kind and professional! She worked very well with my daughter and the rest of my family, including myself, taking our own pictures while she took hers. We would love to work with her again!

I have been a model for 35 years, I was only 3 when I started so I have worked with many photographers & Clegg is amazing with lighting, hardest but most salient job, plus he is easy to work with, sweet but professional all the way! Now one of my favorites! You cannot go wrong with Clegg!

Ashley is a wonderful photographer who makes you feel comfortable and comes to your shoot ready with options. I wanted headshots that were not the same old sad professional headshots that you see on LinkedIn. She did an amazing job and gave lots of options. Hire her..you won’t regret it.

Ande told me she's been into photography since forever, and the fact is she is friendly, professional, and very pleasant to work with. She went above and beyond to make sure our event photos turn out amazing! She also doesn't shy away from sharing her professional photo opinions with me. I will go ask Ande again for my future photography needs.

Ande is a talented photographer, plain and simple. Last month, she took candid photos of me and my husband, and they turned out amazing. Furthermore, she is professional, a great communicator and a pleasure to be around! I look forward to working with Ande again for my future photography needs, and I'd recommend her to anyone.

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.

Not only is Jonathan an incredibly talented and dedicated photographer, he is also funny and kind and always made me feel comfortable, which is important with any photoshoot. I HIGHLY recommend him. His prices are super reasonable and the results of his photographer and detailed (but not overdone) editing are beautiful!

Jonathan is an incredible photographer who makes you feel 100% comfortable being yourself in front of the camera (This is coming from someone who is usually very shy and awkward...)!! He's fun and professional, and he'll help you see the many sides to yourself-- 10/10 would recommend!!!! :)

I definitely recommend working with Mursel/CosmicVibesTribe. In addition to being very fun and easy going, she is very talented. She's great at determining the best lighting, pose and angles to capture the best shot. She's great at creative shots - we did an in action farmer's market shoot, and many fitness shoots on the beach, in a fitness studio and against cool wall murals. Mursel clearly puts time and effort after the shoot in her editing process as well. She's my go to for all photography! Attached are some of her creative shots!

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!

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!

Shannon was great to work with. We have a very independent little three year old who won't sit still for a camera. However, Shannon was able to capture great images of our busy guy and we now have some wonderful and fun family photos. Shannon was great and we'll definitely seek her out again for another occasion. Thanks Shannon much appreciated!!

I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Alina – I am VERY camera shy, and never for a second did I feel insecure or anything less than beautiful. I have never done a photo shoot, and she gave me good direction, and never giggled when I moved like a goof and probably looked ridiculous. By the end, I was SERVING LOOKs. I actually had a ton of fun and stopped being nervous!!! She knows all the best kept secret locations of San Diego. Her eye for a shot is incredible – based on her portfolio I trusted her eye and aesthetic and I’m so glad I did. Alina’s aesthetic and editing make her stand out as a photographer and artist and I highly recommend her and would go to her again. Her turnaround time on getting the gallery to me was also way beyond my expectations. I couldn’t be happier. Thanks, Alina!!
