We are very pleased with Mr.Sechrest he offered to do our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos all for one price. We were able to view our engagement photos very quickly, and they were amazing. I feel very confident in our wedding day experience seeing the great job he did on our engagement photos.

My family and I were vacationing in Newport from out of state and chose Danielle to capture our beach fun. I had never been to the area before and didn't know any photographers much less any good spots that would work well for family photographs. After exchanging some emails a few weeks before our arrival, we set a date and location for our photos. Danielle was prompt, professional, and chose an excellent location for the photos. Our session was no easy task because I have two small children, ages 5 and 2. Combine that with water and sand and you get a recipe for disaster, but Danielle was able to somehow capture great photographs of my family. I would definitely use her again in the future.

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.

Elena did my engagement photos and they came out beautiful, my husband and I never took professional photos before, so she guided us until we got comfortable. She definitely listened to what we wanted and it came out beautiful. Elena also did our wedding and we're waiting on the pictures but I know they'll be great! She was so wonderful! Thank you!

Gabriel did my engagement photos this past weekend and they came out excellent. I asked him to photograph my proposal and he did so without my fiancé even knowing. It was an awesome surprise. This was on a Saturday, and by the following Wednesday I already had the disc of photos mailed to me. He was very nice and did an excellent job. I highly recommend using him for any photos you may need.

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.

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

I you are thinking of using Equinox photo, you will not be disappointed. Tricia absolutely surpassed both me and my wife's expectations. We absolutely loved every photo she took...from our engagement session to our big wedding day. Tricia will absolutely make you feel comfortable in front of a camera. She is 100% professional, but also makes the photo shoot fun! We loved her contagious positive energy, and unique style. Every one of our pictures came out perfect--like bridal magazine perfect! I was so shocked at how she was able to capture every moment so beautifully. On the day of the wedding, Tricia and her husband, LJ, made the stress of the day simply go away with their delightful personalities. Having great wedding photos was one of the most important things that we wanted. My wife was very particular about how she wanted our photos to look, but Tricia surpassed even my wife's high standards :) From the moment we met with Tricia, we know that she would be someone that we could connect with and be open with. We didn't realize at the time how important that would be. There are thousands of photographers out there, but Tricia truly is one in a million. Thank you, Tricia, for everything!

Outstanding, absolutely phenomenal photography! Sasha & Yanek photographed my engagement session and wedding and the photos well exceeded my expectations. They make you feel so comfortable with them that you're so naturally relaxed and look amazing in your photos. I had the opportunity to work with Magdalena for a boudoir session before the wedding and she was amazing too! You don't get better than Wasio when it comes to photography. I will forever use them for my formal photo sessions. I love these guys! I am so honored to have had them as my photographers last year.

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!

Working with Alan is a pleasure every time. To find someone in business that I can trust to do the right thing, produce excellent quality products and services, all while making sure he treats his customers fairly is a rare gem and I'm lucky to get to work with him. Photography: He excels at and enjoys the art and discipline of photography. This is the best sort of photographer to work with! You will be thrilled with the products/services you get from him. Integrity: His morals and conscience point due North. If something goes wrong, he makes a huge effort to make sure it's righted again. Honesty: He is truly the "Do unto others" type. I love working with him because there has never been a feeling of unease or mistrust. If he says he is going to do something, he makes good every time. There are plenty of questionable characters we encounter in business, Alan is NOT one of them! Timeliness: Alan understands life is busy but commitments mean something. He is respectful of others' time and does what he says he will do when he says he will do it. I will do business with Alan every chance I get because I know I will be treated fairly, my expectations will be met or exceeded, and I will walk away from the transaction delighted with the results and the experience.
