Danielle took photos of our family of 15, ranging from 4 year old twins up to the grandparents, and was a pleasure to work with. We will treasure these photos.

We began using Joanne as our family photographer when our son was 6 months old (in Hawaii)…and I'm so happy we did!!! She's help capture his precious infant/toddler years in her Watch Me Grow & Watch Me Grow Some More package…which we all LOVE looking through now that he's almost 6 years old. Joanne is AMAZING with infants & toddlers! She's patient and sweet, and kids love her! We've even used her as our photographer for our preschool…and the images were incredible! Our favorite photo session with her was a couple of months ago at Disneyland! She captured the essence of our favorite times at the place "where dreams come true."

Dominique came highly recommended by a mutual friend. I was looking for someone to photograph our small beach wedding. It was difficult to find a photographer who would photograph a small wedding without charging BIG wedding prices. I guess most people hear "wedding" and they assume a full day of shooting. We just wanted a photographer for a couple of hours since we weren't having a large wedding or reception. Dominique was very professional and worked with our budget. In the end we came to an agreement which seemed fair. My fiance and I met with Dominique and his partner to look at his work and to get acquainted. At that time we gave him our deposit and filled out the contract. I felt very comfortable with them, I knew then that the day of would be just fine. We made sure to keep contact before and the day of the wedding. He contacted me the day of to touch base. It was kind if a blur that day but things turned out perfect. 2 hours does go by fast. In retrospect, I wish I would have hired him for at least 1 more hour because I would have loved to take more photos with our kids. After all the family photos, my husband and I took off with the photographers to take the bride and groom pics. Everything flowed naturally, I felt very comfortable and we had a blast shooting. I even got my wedding dress wet which actually made for some fabulous photos. The end results were as expected. Beautiful photos of a sunset beach wedding. Thank you so much for capturing our special day! We will definitely use you guys in the future and recommend to friends.

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!

I had an awesome overall experience with Wasio faces! Sasha and Yaneck are wonderful and really made my first experience getting headshots taken a fun and professional one! They made me feel so comfortable and at home as well. If you are looking for professional photographers either for weddings, headshots or any other event, I highly recommend Wasio!

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!

He did a wonderful job. He even brought along with him an additional photograph at no charge to make sure that the lighting and everything was perfect for my products. I highly recommend him for any business that needs to have their products showcased a's well as any family photography. The pictures of the girls came out amazing and he even took home certain items I needed to be shot in the studio his fees are very reasonable and he is very nice and has very creative ideas. I would recommend him more than other people that I've worked with I highly suggest hiring him for any photography needs

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

We did a family photo shoot for my parent's anniversary and Kelly and her girls were so great to work with! They scoped out locations in advance which made it very helpful since I am not local. They were very accommodating and by the end of the evening, we were able to look at the photos as a family!

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!!!!

It was an amazing experience working with Heena. She puts her heart into her work and it is visible in her projects/pictures. She is very professional and organized. She has a huge collection of props and backgrounds to match your theme. She has experience with babies and is super patient. She is willing to work that extra mile to make her customer happy and this what makes her different from any of other photographers. I will be hiring her again for my child’s first birthday and cake smashing. Thank you Heena for all your hard work.

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!

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.
