Mr. Sechrest stayed in constant contact with us prior to the shoot, inquired about hobbies and other pertinent info pertaining to interest for adding props. for the shoot. Mr. Sechrest also hooked us up with a contact for make up (she did an excellent job). He took us to an excellent location for the best lighting and moved the scheduled day for the shoot so the weather was optimal. Mr. Sechrest was patient with my daughter as she changed clothes and tried different poses, he was willing to cross some treacherous rocks near the water to get the best pics possible. His knowledge of the area for locations was outstanding, he took quite a few really good pictures and the price for his work is very reasonable. I highly recommend Mr. Sechrest for photo shoots and I plan on using his service next year for my other daughter's graduation pictures.

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.

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.

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. They're fun people and got along well with our photographers and other vendors. We received our deliverables ( + raw footage) within reasonable amount of times. HIGHLY recommend them for any wedding. Your wedding day really is a blur, and we were more than happy with our decision to go with Palo to capture all the feels of the day/night.

As a bride on budget wedding photography can be extremely overwhelming. We are a simple couple who was interested in natural light photography to capture our special day. Our theme was modern vintage with beachy vibes and Olga nailed it from the very beginning. from the first glance of her website we could tell that she was more than capable of shooting the natural romantic look we were looking for. She was willing to work within our budget and came very well prepared to our first (and only) meeting. Her package included a complimentary engagement shoot, which was wonderful because we didn't have a chance to get one done. We wanted to include our energetic pup in the photo shoot as well, since pets were not allowed oat our wedding venue. She was totally open to the idea and did an AMAZING job capturing our little love. She arrived on time and ready to rock! It was a sunset shoot so she was focused on getting us in position for the perfect angles and had no problem kindly asking folks to to step aside so we can have the proper backdrops. It took her little under an hour to get all the shots we requested and they turned out absolutely adorable. We felt so comfortable and in very good hands for the big day. On the day of, she arrived to our hotel early and had already begun taking pics. She worked seamlessly with our videographer and maneuvered through our busy bridal with ease to get all the necessary getting ready shots. The Groom's suite was downstairs from ours so it was a breeze for her to get his pre-ceremony shots as well. With such a large wedding party (23 in total!) Olga did a great job identifying and highlighting all the VIPs such as the MOH, BM, grandparents and parents, while documenting all the personality of our big bunch. She even kindly offered to escort me and a few of bridesmaids to the venue. Let's just say it was the most memorable ride of life! Olga is a true professional and will do anything in her power to make sure her clients are taken care of and this was no exception. The wedding photos turned out absolutely amazing! My only wish there with two of her, to capture twice the memories. Oh, it was also extremely windy for a summer day. She did a fantastic job of using the elements to her advantage and creating some truly romantic shots. We did go an hour over schedule and Olga had no problem staying later to make sure she covered all the main events of the night. She even sent us a few pics to cherish while on our honeymoon. I can't thank her enough for working with us and recommend her 100%.

I got headshots taken for my graduation from Medical School. My family was very happy with how the photos looked. I have also used the photos for applications to fellowship and for badges. They look very professional and my pictures stand apart.

Awesome! We all know pictures are one of the most important parts of the wedding. What an amazing crew this guy has. I had them for the entire big day. He did all of the getting ready shots. Even had a drone to get some amazing air photos. The wedding was flawless. Russ even put together a timeline for me because I was so overwhelmed. They got every shot I could have possibly asked for! They were extremely professional and very helpful. I honestly can not say enough good things about this team. Customer service is huge to me. They went beyond exceptional customer care. You will be happy you chose them! Thanks again for everything! You made our day a little bit better by being a part of it! -Marissa

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!!!!

As a business owner it is imperative that I contact and utilize the services of other professionals to help me with the areas that I lack in. I got on Thumbtack last week for the first time and contacted photographer Patrick Sanford. Patrick was able to see me within two days of our initial conversation and I was very pleased with his quick response and ability to squeeze me into his schedule. I have a personal training studio and was in need of some high quality fitness photos. WOW. I was blown away by the quality and look of the photos and the editing job was done in less than 24 hours. He met me and gave a thumb drive with over 200 edited professional images. I am very grateful for his expertise and willingness to meet my needs as promptly as he did. I highly recommend Patrick as a photographer. Professional, great eye and super cool. I will be doing more work with him in the future!

We found Lacey when we were looking for someone to take pictures for our family to celebrate my mom’s 70th. We are from out of town so we were a little nervous about choosing the right photographer, but everything went better than we imagined. Lacey was very patient and friendly and her pictures are the best ones that my family and I have ever taken. I’ve attached a few. She was able to capture everyone’s personalities perfectly! Thank you Lacey!!

It was a pleasure working with Jim from Shick Photography. We wanted to do a photo shoot for our son to celebrate his upcoming graduation. Jim meet us at Old Poway Park in Poway. He was there early and had already scouted the area. He has good good eye for locations and we took plenty of photos. Our photo shoot was on Sunday and we received the proofs by Wednesday of that week. We were quite pleased on how the photos turned out and plan to use Shick Photography for our family photos in the near future.
