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.

Dayvid was great to work with for my daughter's quinceañera . I researched a lot of photographers and he is the only one that made me feel comfortable enough to book without meeting him since I live out of state. He showed up on time was very easy to talk to and gave me a great product. I would definitely use him for my other daughter if he is still around.

Ivan and his Videographer Vanessa were extremely hardworking for my daughter's wedding! Very patient and kind; arrived extra early and stayed extra late; worked a solid 9 hours with a smile and professionalism! I requested a videographer in the last couple of weeks before the event, and Ivan was able to coordinate the help for only a few hundred dollars more! I highly recommend this service!

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!

Absolutely wonderful experience. A real pro who is sincerely customer focused. The first photographer who had the humble swag to gently direct the shoot with my best interests in mind. This is a true feat if you've had other experiences with photographers, Marc will get the 'look' you need that you did not know you needed. He took this shaggy dog and turned him into a pedigree!

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!

MacTaggart Media worked with my organization during a three day conference in San Diego and everyone with our company was impressed with her professionalism and the high quality of her work. Over the years, I have engaged photographers all around the country for corporate events and Kelli MacTaggart is the best I've ever hired.

Danielle was an amazing photographer. She was not only my photographer, but my friend. She was a great listener, and helped me to calm down when I was having "those bridal moments." Her pictures are beautiful, and she did an amazing job capturing mine and my husbands love. I would give her more stars if I could. I would recommend anyone shopping around for a photographer. Choose Danielle. Meet with her, and you'll immediately see why she is so fantastic. ❤️ Danielle, you're the best! Be my photographer when we get pregnant! ;)

Amina is an all around great person and is very reliable and easygoing. In the past I struggled with photographers who weren't trustworthy, so shooting with Amina was such a treat! Amina also has great, artistic vision and a good sense of timing which definitely reflects in the work that she does. I give this girl 2 thumbs up!!!!

Susan is an amazing photographer.  The pictures look like they belong in the hospitals (labor and delivery wing) and in magazines. I was so happy when she took time with the baby and didn't rush. She was so loving and understanding and we even stopped between the shoot to feed baby. When baby was crying, she encouraged me to stop and pick her up to calm her and then we would start again whereas at other studios I felt rushed and like I was inconveniencing them. She has an amazing imagination and she was relentless to find the perfect shot for the baby. When the baby was too fussy she figured out a way to take the shots of her ON ME!! You can't even tell I was holding her. In my opinion, that is truly amazing! You could really tell this is a talent and true passion of Susan's. The pictures came out so amazing and I would definetly use her again for any of our photographic needs.

We knew when we first contacted Christopher that he was going to be our photographer. Our initial consultation on the phone was pleasant and professional. Christopher took the time to explain the whole process. He is definitely experienced and knowledgeable. He basically gave me a step by step overview on what to expect on the big day. Compared to other photographers, they just tell you what they offer and they expect you to pay a price. We explained what we wanted, he listened to our needs, and he was able to accommodate us. Our wonderful photo package included engagement photos, day of photos, and even a sweet surprise— a special crafted photo guestbook filled with your favorite engagement photos. This was a nice touch, I might add! You will NOT be disappointed. So please pick up the phone and don’t hesitate to hire him! We also liked the fact that our photos were in an online gallery and had the ability to download them. Christopher was there to answer any questions and needs in a timely manner. His partner— Ryan— the videographer was also professional and pleasant as well. We enjoyed having you both capturing our special day. Thank you for everything you have done! Every moment that was captured turned beautiful :) Cheers!

Tom was such a pleasant person to work with. He was on time, he took his time with the pictures and video, he did an excellent job with editing the pictures and they all looked fantastic. He did much more than what he was supposed to do for this shooting. He provided the final product in less than a day. I am just so excited that I was able to work with him and I think I found my to go photographer for all my real estate listings. Thank you Tom!

Joe was a terrific photographer. I had to postpone the photos 3 times due to weather, and he was very patient and made himself available throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for drone photography and we will be hiring him again for future projects.

I wish I could have given Jess a 10 star rating!! My daughter had 9 days to plan her wedding. I put an ad up on Thumbtack hoping like crazy that we could find a photographer to just snap a few shots of a civil ceremony. We were thrilled when we saw Jess's portfolio and hired her. We started communicating with her about what my daughter really wanted to capture. Jess was absolutely delightful, graceful and professional - but was also fun to have with us on my daughter's special day. We had digital images in TWO days after the wedding!! They are beautiful and she captured some very precious moments that we will remember forever.

Ron was brilliant! I could have not asked for a better photographer to cover my boudoir shoot! He was absolutely phenomenal. Words could not really describe how happy I am of the outcome! I already booked another session in advance! His eye for detail is awesome! I was very comfortable and he did everything I had envisioned and even more! I highly recommend Ron to anyone needing any type of photography and especially any boudoir session! His studio is amazing! I can't wait for my next session! FYI: He will work with your schedule and always try his best to accommodate you!

I'm so glad I went with Arroyo Photos for my company's holiday party. Jesse was amazing from the planning stages to the end of the event. Also, since he's a professional photographer, the photos came out awesome! Even at the end of the night when 20 people piled into the photo booth area, he was able to get us all into an amazing shot. I highly recommend Jesse for any event. Hopefully we'll be able to work with him again!
