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.

From my first inquiry about the project to delivering our finished photos, I found Jessica to be a true first-class professional. Even my skeptical husband (who didn't think we needed professional photographers for a family shoot) was blown away with the photos and my entire family of 5 truly feel that we hit the "photographer jackpot" when we found Jessica and Bobby. Thank you for listening to our needs and for making us feel very comfortable during the shoots at Sunset Cliffs. My children loved the time you both spent with them and how you added some special creative magic to make some playful pictures for us. We really appreciate how you were also so responsive after the shoot, and for delivering our photos within a 3 day turnaround. We are definitely enjoying digitally viewing our family and individual photos now, but the hard part is selecting which photos of the many we all love to be "printed or framed." Bottom line, we are confident Jessica and Bobby will also exceed your expectations like they did ours. Your overall experience will be nothing short of remarkable.

Heather did a phenomenal job shooting our family photos. The weather the day of our shoot was cold and windy. Despite the cold Heather was able to get some beautiful photos even though the entire family was miserable from the cold. I would highly recommend Heather Broomhall Photography!

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. And the finished product was absolutely stunning! The photos made me cry! She captured beautiful moments of my family that we will treasure for a lifetime! We've already planned 2 more photo shoots with Laura and will continue to use her as our family photographer! I would HIGHLY recommend Laura Carrasco!

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!

Working with Dan was an amazing experience for me and my family. He was extremely professional at all times and had great feedback on our pose ideas. He was curious when our child was unruly and patient while we got our son back under control. By far, Dan was the perfect photographer. We will most certainly be contacting him again when we want more family photos.

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

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!!!!

I put off having family photos taken for a lot longer than I'd like to admit because I am not a photogenic person. Not only did she take the most beautiful family photos for us, but she took single shots of me that I absolutely love...and I didn't think it was possible! She has an eye for capturing pure beauty in a way that is absolutely unique! She is brilliant!

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

Patrick has done our family photos twice now and both experiences were fun, effortless, and comfortable. No forced smiles, no cheesy poses or filters...just really great photos of my family. My children both love him and as a result, he has managed to to capture some of my favorite photos of them which is not an easy feat particularly with my daughter who is very camera shy and reluctant and difficult to photograph! Patrick will be our family’s photographer for as long as he is willing which is a testament to how capable and talented he is if you consider that we have a photographer in our family who is willing to do our photos for free 🙈 We love him and the amazing images he takes of our family but his action shots particularly of surfers are the most breath taking. Follow him on Instagram if you ever want to take a mental retreat to the beach. They are truly amazing and calming to look at. @patricksanfordphotography

He took amazing and beautiful photos of my son's birthday party at the botanic garden. The photos are my family's treasures of our memories. Also his personality is great so it is easy to work with. It was so quick of sending me the images. I am very satisfied with his work! Thank you, Jamie.

I contacted Marisa about a two-hour family session (one hour for our family together together, and then one hour for quality pictures of my stepdaughter). I could not be happier with our whole experience, and our photos are going to be treasured memories for our family. First, Marisa is incredibly organized, responsive, and committed to her craft - you can tell from the first email that she wants you to have an experience you will remember and that you end up with photos that you truly love. She will consult with you on your vision for your photo session beforehand and I really enjoyed that because it definitely makes you part of the process (if you want to be - if you do not want to be, then Marisa is definitely happy to share her vision and ideas with you, as well, and to take the lead). And then there's the day of the photo session -- and that's where the magic really happens because she captures not just the posed photos (and they are wonderful) but she captures the "in between takes" ... and those, by far, are the ones you treasure above all. The uncontrolled laughter, the silliness - those are what memories are made of. All in all, I wholeheartedly recommend Marisa for your next family photo session.

I really wanted to connect with myself again and feel good. Puneet did some lifestyle photographs for me, and I couldn’t be happier with the whole process. He was amazing to work with, made me feel completely comfortable and has a calmness about him that is unmatchable. He was very responsive before the shoot and sent me my edited photos super quick. I would highly recommend him and can’t wait to do another session with him!
