I contacted Adam Southard for new theatrical headshots. After reviewing several quotes and talking with potential photographers, I was most impressed with Adam's portfolio and his quick turn around time to answer my questions. Because I needed so many different looks, I also needed a photographer with a great eye and who could help me get the shots I needed (all in one shoot). I signed up for the headshot package - 6 looks for $300. I arrived to the shoot hair and makeup ready and had a friend who assisted me with the photos. Adam was very friendly to us both and I know immediately that the shoot would go well. Adam is based out of a home studio, so he has different backdrops and lighting inside his living room studio. It is a very comfortable atmosphere, again, making it much easier to get great shots. For each of the six different looks Adam took some inside the studio and then we went outside for a different lighting and feel. For this reason I feel I got such a great array of looks in a relatively short shoot! Following the photo shoot I received a dropbox file of all of my photos, in roughly three hours. I reviewed the photos with my agent and we selected twelve that were best for retouching. Adam immediately touched up the photos and sent them to me via dropbox. I had a few other finicky things I needed fixed in the photos (as per agents' request) and Adam very graciously fixed these and sent them back to me the following day. I came away with a great selection of photos that I can use for diverse roles/work. I give Best La Headshots/ Adam Southard 5 stars and fully recommend him to any and all actors. He is an outstanding photographer and also very kind and easy to work with (this is not always the case with photographers!). You will be very happy with the results!

I'll start off by saying that I do my research, so when I decided to look for a photographer to take some much overdue headshots, it was no different. I checked out the portfolios of many photographers and selected Adam Southhard of Best LA Headshots. I am very happy with the pictures he took and the experience that I had. Adam Southard is a very talented photographer; very professional, patient and timely. My research paid off. 5 Stars - I highly recommend Best LA Headshots.

I've been to many photographers before, but they're not up to par compared to my head shots Ive taken with Adam. I actually had to have him edit a recent headshot I took by another photographer even though he didn't take the pic himself. I highly recommend you check out his work. Also, for the people of color, he knows what lighting works with different shades of skin complexions - so no worries, he's got you covered! :) Thank you Adam!

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!

Will did an outstanding job shooting our event at a local LA school. He captured moments with students so beautifully, was exceptionally professional, arrived early and stayed late to get the job done. My company uses Thumbtack to find event photographers in almost every city across the US, and Will is among the best.

It was a wonderful experience! We surprised the bachelorette with a photo session and it really worked out well! The bridesmaids didn't know each other from before the wedding so it was great to get everyone together in front of the camera as before the big day. This photographer was so professional, patient, and kind. He did such a great job with our group and we cannot wait to see the final product!!

We needed a photographer who understood our vision for a project we were doing involving taking quick head shots of people within our church and Ivan was great! He had quick turn around on photos and we'd definitely use him again if we needed another photographer. Very professional, showed up on time and ready to work. Easy to access by phone and email. We were pleased with the end product!

We just had family portraits taken with Ivan from Creative Vision and the work was incredible. He was really good with our baby and 9 year old. He is extremely meticulous about the smallest of details and each of the pictures will turn out far better then you would expect. I would recommend him for any event and I will definitely use his services again.

Brad Zangwill and staff are by far the most amazing photographers ever--would Never have photography done with anyone else. This project was our wedding. Of course we wanted everything perfect--and it was. Brad shows such enthusiasm, creativity, and sensitivity to what we wanted. He suggested things I didn't even think to do. He was so very easy to get a hold of--always responding back to me--Same Day!! He was always on time. The quality of the pictures were outstanding, all at reasonable cost, and he is just one easy man to work with. Because he kept his cost down, I was able to include other things--like a little interview of us that he showed at the wedding before the ceremony started. People really loved that! No need to look further--he is your man!! I am happy to recommend him and would be happy to speak with anyone individually as well...just call. 909-240-9211--kathy

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!

Brad did a fantastic job photographing our wedding!! He was on time and had great energy and got started right away! We had a very big (and loud) bridal party and he was very patient and great with getting everyone to focus. He helped to pose everyone to make sure we all looked good. He would even retake pictures if shadows were cast badly or hair was not looking good. He had a lot of great ideas for creative and fun shots. He was very attentive and willing to go the extra mile to get the perfect shot. I've only seen 2 pictures so far but they looked so amazing, I can't wait to see the rest! Thank you brad, you were amazing! I had a lot of guests ask where I found you and if they could get your card and contact info. I will gladly recommend you to anyone looking for a photographer!! -Kristy and Sean

Richard was the photographer for our wedding. Richard has an amazing talent for photography. He is professional, on time, and has a great eye. Richard busted his butt for us,long after any other photographers would have called it a day. Richard was full of great ideas, and more then willing to roll with any suggestions. Richard had more ideas then we had time for.That was too bad, because if we had all day, we would have had even more great photos. I would recommend Richard for any of your photography needs.

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.

Nona is hands down one of the best photographers our family has ever worked with! Very professional and extremely good at what she does. We had to reschedule d/t the bipolar Houston weather and she worked well (and FAST) to get everything done, EVEN had a few pics ready in less than 24hrs!! I only wish we could've gotten the remaining photos a little sooner as a small project I was working on was delayed (and so many were so good!). To be fair, she delivered on her original ETA AND photos were done just before the holidays, so we know she was very busy. I would absolutely recommend her to everyone I know, our pictures have gotten rave reviews from family and friends!

I was asked by a university to have my pictures taken professionally for an article that is going to be published. Fortunately, I didn't have a lot of time to think about it, because I was becoming quite nervous. Kelli arrived with all of her equipment. She suggested I pull out a few accessories from my closet. I had a couple of clothing ideas in mind. She recommended I add some scarves and jackets that were added to compliment what I chose. She helped me relax, knew just what would look good inside the house and outdoors. She has an eye for backgrounds, lighting, and an exuberance comes out that makes the subject have fun and really enjoy the experience. I loved that she would show me some of the shots as we went along, and I loved the ability to veto pictures taken so the publisher couldn't choose them. If you need professional pictures,she is the photographer to call! Thank you, Kelli!

Tom is an exceptional photographer! He is very kind and has terrific qualities that stand out in his work. Aside from the amazing photographs that he takes the quality that sets him apart from other photographers is that he listens to the client. Often photographers take control in a way that doesn't necessarily produce the photographs of your choice. Tom doesn't do that. He asks questions of your wants and desires, and prepares for it. Before finding Tom I crossed off about ten other photographers who came across as arrogant, and very pushy. Tom works for you! He does the shoots the way you want them done. I hired Tom to do a maternity and newborn shoot. It was by the far one of the best experiences that I've had with a photographer. We discussed the locations prior to the shoots, and it was so fun and easy. I was very impressed by how personable Tom is. I felt as if it was a friend doing these shoots. Don't waste your time and money on photographers who pop up first on google search. Hire someone who is actually Good!

Joshua gave me exactly the headshot I was looking for. He really listened to me, and he was great at getting a good "look" from me. I love that I had so many shots to choose from. Technically everything was excellent--lighting, retouching, etc. Also Josh's communication skills were really good. We had to go back and forth a bit for scheduling, but he always got back to me right away and he was really flexible. I also thought the cost was very reasonable. I would recommend Josh to anyone looking for photography of any kind--wedding, product, portrait, whatever.

Sheryl was the photographer at our July 4th backyard wedding and she was A+MAZING! Very professional, outgoing and responsive. My partner (now husband) scheduled a meet ‘n greet and immediately made the connection with her. She saw the wedding venue and instantly came up with great ideas and vision on where the perfect shots and lighting will be for the wedding. She checked in with me through the whole wedding planning process. On the day of the wedding, Sheryl and a partner in tow arrived few minutes early to help set-up our photo backdrop. The rest of the day/night went very smoothly and stress-free – she made everyone at the wedding feel comfortable and at ease. She checked in with me a couple of times before the ceremony to see if I needed help with anything. Oh, and she even texted me a photo of the wedding set-up outside while I was getting ready. Nice touch! 9:00 a.m. the morning after the wedding, Sheryl texted me a couple of photos from the wedding right away, all of which were awesome shots, and within few hours later, she followed up with a link to some of our wedding photo collection available to view online. All the photos we’ve seen thus far are awesome! For those who are looking for a photographer, look no further – Sheryl is your girl! She is the best, she gets it and she gets the job done!

Sheryl was the photographer at our wedding, and I cannot say enough about the amazing job she did. Everything from her communication to her professionalism was outstanding. She made everyone at the wedding feel comfortable and at ease. I was so impressed with the little things she did like making sure my dad has his boutonniere on before the ceremony and capturing the moments that I would never have thought of. Above all if you want a photographer to be creative and use her artistic skills to create breathtaking results, then Sheryl is the one!

The quality of the photos is excellent; we are so happy to have gotten to have Sheryl as our photographer!

Jeff Banty was great he has a studio in the back of his house with great lighting, a tv screen/computer that instantly let's you see if you liked your pictures. He will even give you time to fix your hair and makeup if something like hair or outfit was out of place. He put music on during my shoot and let me change into many different outfits. Jeff really took his time and really cared about the quality of my pictures adjusting the lighting several times. He sent me the pictures the same day like he promised.

Samer was the photographer at my son's recent birthday party at a local museum. I don't know where to begin with describing the positive experience we had with him. First and foremost, he is one of the kindest and most gracious people I've met. He arrived early to the party and actually offered to help with setup! Then he started taking photographs of the entire museum. He captured every moment and aspect of the party that I never told him to do. His photographs came within a couple days and were really beautiful and extensive. He even suggested photo ops during the party in a discreet and non-intrusive way and when I saw the pics, I was grateful he did. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and already plan to have him as the photographer at our future parties. He was a true pleasure to work with and made the guests and my hard-to-please hubby very happy!

We hired Shane for our two girls' birthdays, and he did not disappoint. He was referred to us by some friends, and we are glad to have used him. We like how he included our kids' friends in the photos so they can forever remember their childhood friends, and this is something we did not request, but we did notice it, and particularly appreciate it in the photos he delivered to us. He is very thorough in his approach, has the right equipment, he is very professional, has a lot of patience, and gets those special shots that are not staged or planned. His pics make you feel like those super wealthy people who have personal photographers capturing those initiate family moments. Great job, and we definitely will hire Shane again.

From one photographer to another, I must say that Shane was an absolute joy to work with. We hired him because of his candid approach to shooting events and he did not disappoint.

He was also great with my daughter, and took some beautiful candid photos of us as a family.

Jordan made everything so easy. For my portrait shoot he was perfectly punctual and came with a vision so the whole shoot went very smoothly. Even though it rained on the day we were shooting he improvised with some crafty umbrella work and was able to produce some great shots regardless. He also turned everything around way earlier than I expected, which was an added bonus and I supremely appreciate. Would definitely recommend.

She had a variety of props and blankets to use in the photos as well. She was great with my daughter even when she was fussy and knows how to calm a crying newborn.

After unfruitful searches for a reasonably priced and quality wedding photographer online, Ceri reached out to me after I posted a request on SimplyBridal. Ceri was our photographer for two wedding occasions that fell within a week of a each other - an intimate, traditional religious ceremony in a downtown NYC church, and a large and more casual celebration of extended family and friends at an upstate restaurant on the Hudson River. She was our lone photographer, but never missed beat - she perfectly captured the mood of both occasions, as different as they were. Without needing much guidance on our end, she dived right into some pretty chaotic settings and began to snap away, all while giving us clear creative direction. Her attention to detail was impeccable and she noticed things that picked up very well on camera. In addition, Ceri was extremely flexible (she adjusted her schedule to accomodate a last minute time change) and adaptable (to different scenes, crowds and environments). On top of that, she was a total pro - she had traveled all the way from LA to shoot our two events, and spent time in the UK in between. While so much intercontinental travel can be stressful and draining, she was upbeat and kind enough to bring us a wedding gift from her trip! She is as thoughtful and classy as her work. Her pricing was also bargain (in fact, she blew the competition away) and we got a great value for the quality of her portfolio. She has a true talent, and I will cherish these photos forever. Ceri can really do it all, and I highly recommend her!

Working with Ceri was a real pleasure as she clearly loves her work. At our wedding, she was gracious--and unobtrusive when the situation called for it. Both the formal posed images and the more candid, documentary shots of the ceremony and party afterward are lovely. As a professional photographer myself, I appreciate her approach: documentary, using available light, excellent framing and use of color. Ceri will definitely memorialize your event in a way that you will treasure. Hire her and you will be very pleased!

Ceri took the best wedding photos i ever saw. We looked like movie stars in our wedding and all our guests were impressed by the moments she captured. Working with Ceri was so easy she is a very talented photographer. We even decided to always work with her for any future events we have.

I needed to have a head shot taken for business purposes. I am terrified of having my picture taken and I told Jerry that when he gave me a bid. He assured me that it would be a fun experience and that I wouldn't leave, without seeing something that I would be pleased with. I must say that he was right on target. From the minute I arrived at his studio, I felt re-assured and special. He clearly made me the priority of his attention during the time that I was there. He was patient with me and coached me quite effectively to get the best shots possible. He even broke some of his "rules" of photography, to satisfy my wishes. At the end of the day, his "rules" trumped my wishes as he clearly has an eye for photography and highlighting the best in his clients. In addition, he had the most reasonable prices of all of the bids I received. I am a huge fan of Jerry's and will never use another photographer.

Jerry was terrific -- a wonderful photographer, genuine human being and total professional. I am not at all comfortable having my picture taken, but he put me at ease and made me feel at home. Plus, his photos are uniquely shot -- he really captured who I was, inside and out. That's in part because he took the time to get to know me. His prices were very reasonable, and he delivered the pictures quickly. Look closely at his sample head shots -- he shows an artistry unique to headshot photographers. Plus, he is a really kind, friendly person. I also recommend his makeup artist. She made be look better, but still like me, which is exactly what I wanted.

I needed to have a professional head shot. I am not good in taking pictures, feared the moment. Jerry assured me that “everybody is photogenic” and it’s the photographer’s task to bring that out. And he sure did! Jerry is extremely talented and artistic, very professional and personable. He takes time to get to know you and he captures who you really are, no matter how long it takes. His photo shots are very unique: clear shots that capture you inside and out. I recommended Jerry to all my friends and professional connections. Jerry you are brilliant! Thank You! Narine H.

Tiffany photographed my wedding, showing up early to get great shots of the venue and decor, and staying through the dance party to capture a range of great candids and portraits. I could not be more happy with her enthusiasm and talent. Everyone at the wedding loved her energy and great direction. I can't believe how much she was able to cover on her own and the photos look amazing. She was also remarkably quick with editing turnaround. I would use Tiffany Kyees again in a heartbeat and highly recommend her to anyone who asks.

Forrest did a commercial job for and his attitude and work were fantastic. He made the subject feel relaxed, his energy was great and the shoot was professional and fun. End result, beautiful and artistic images. He put in substantially more time and effort that I could possibly have expected. I just hire him again, to shoot my personal headshots and portrait photos for my professional use. Forrest made me feel totally at ease and he made the shoot fun. Love the photos and hight recommend him. He is a pleasure to work with and a motivated and talented photographer. Great photos, responsive and fast results and super professional. I highly recommend him on all levels.

Denise is fantastic. It's clear that she's been honing her craft for a long time and the results speak for themselves. She took many, many shots and gave great ideas for which poses would work best. Then she had me pick my favorites and did an excellent touch up job on them. I would highly recommend Denise for headshots or any other type of portrait photography.

Yanira was an amazing photographer. She photographed my daughter's 15th birthday and captured every important moment beautifully. She was professional and was so willing to do all I had asked of her with grace and professionalism. At very late notice, I asked her to come early to photograph my daughter as she was getting ready and without hesitation she granted my request, was prompt and went right to work! She is reliable and was outstanding at capturing every detail of our party including pictures with family members and friends, flowers, decor, all the special moments I would have never thought of! She left no detail unnoticed. The pictures are of the highest quality and perfect! I would highly recommend her and I am definitely using her again! I am grateful for having the all the special moments so beautifully captured by Miss Yanira!

I hired Yana to take some family photos and individual photos of my grown sons. Even though it was cold and windy the day of the shoot she was able to get us to relax and got some really great shots. It was very hard to pick just a few so I ended up with 12 different poses! Her photography really caught the essence of my family and I would highly recommend her for any individual/family/portrait photography even though she was a little more expensive than some others photographers.

We LOVE working with Cory! He has done our family portraits for the past couple years, and I can't tell you how many compliments I receive on our holiday cards. We have three little boys, 5 and under, and Cory is patient, and accommodating, with his time and scheduling. Every picture of my boys always seems to capture their personalities, and they love working with him as well. He is quick to get you your proofs as well. Some photographers I've waited up to a month plus after events, but he will work to help with your deadlines etc. We're doing a Mother's Day shoot with him this year, and I can't wait to see our pictures! I highly suggest working with Cory you will not be disappointed with your experience, and finished product.

Our family's photo shoot with Cory was so easy. He was professional, efficient and great with the kids. I normally loath these family photo shoots since they usually feel like pulling teeth with the kids not cooperating, and drag on forever. Our shoot with Cory flew by and he took some of the best pictures our family has. Super high quality and great service. I highly recommend hiring Cory to be your photographer.

Jenna has done a great job every time she's taken photos for our family! She's able to recommend places to take great photos and always prepares beforehand by picking out some good spots at the location. Also, she's patient, especially when there are young kids involved, but also is able to get plenty of great shots in a short amount of time. Finally, I love that she's been able to get us our edited photos back so quickly afterwards! Would definitely recommend her as a photography to everyone!

Jenna is the most easygoing and chill person to work with. She always makes sure the lighting is perfect in every photo, and her editing skills are absolutely stellar. Also, compared to a lot of other photographers, she gets the photos back to you in a matter of days rather than the typical 4-6 weeks. Definitely 5 stars.

After a failed attempt at some newborn photos with another photographer, we luckily stumbled upon Marcus. From the very beginning he was responsive, open to ideas and very easy to work with all before we even met him!!! On the day of the shoot he showed up on time and was even nicer than I expected. He took time to listen to what we wanted and spent so much time trying to get the perfect shot of our daughter. I loved how good he was with her and how he had ya maneuver her into different positions. He never even touched her, which I think helped our little girl stay so calm. He was so warm and gentle with her and extremely patient while waiting for her smiles. He stayed until he felt that he had enough wonderful photos for us. He also did some family photos for us too. Oh! Did I mention that he got edited photos back to us that same night!? He also sent about a hundred images over to us that we are able to access whenever we need. I cannot recommend Marcus enough!!! We loved him and will absolutely use him again in the future! Thanks Marcus!

Marcus is an extremely talented person. Through the years I've seen all types of work come out of his field but nothing quite as impressive as Marcus's. Even after years of working with him I have not seen the level of work he creates often, he is a true gift.
