We hired JP'S for wedding pictures. The photographer is very friendly and kind. I am happy with the first half of the pictures, not the rest. I worked with professional photographers before. When we took pictures outdoors, they would move around a lot to take pictures from different ankles. But with JP'S, because of his lack of mobility (or whatever other reasons), some pictures are just not as nice as I hoped. To be honest, some pictures turned out nice. We wore two different type of outfits on that day. First one turned out nice, not the one in wedding dress. The photographer offered to fix some of the pictures, but we decided not to bother. We spent $500 for an hour of shooting pictures. I want to put it here, may use as reference for anyone who is looking to hire a photographer. I won't work with this one again.

It has only been such a short time from our wedding and we are still so in awe of the work Doug did. He recommended two photographers for our wedding and even though I didn't think it was very big and necessary, I'm so glad I did! He and Bryan were able to be at different locations and have different views and it was perfect! They were easy to get along with, funny, personable and everyone loved them. The pictures came out absolutely incredible and the turnaround time to completion was impressive. They captured all of our requests plus things we wouldn't have thought of. You can never have a "do-over" for wedding pictures and I am so grateful to Doug and Bryan for the impeccable job they did. I would highly, HIGHLY recommend them to anyone for any photography needs!

Our family photos turned out beautifully! She was able to capture the kids giggles and more tender moments just as I had hoped; all while dodging waves, waning light and variable cooperation of our 1 and 4 year old boys! She was flexible with time and also with style of photos from spontaneous moments to more formal groupings. I found her pricing very competitive with South Bay professional photographers who generally charge a sizable fee for prints and images on top of sitting fees. Would recommend Bright Bird without reservation!

Juan was a wonderful photographer, and we were so lucky to find him! We had a handful of photographers fall through, and we were stuck with no photographer, two weeks out from the wedding! Juan was extremely easy to work with, from beginning to finish. He not only gave us an amazing price, but delivered beautiful photographs despite very challenging conditions. Not only do my husband and I have extremely disparate skin tones, but we got married outside, at night, with only ambient lighting. We said our vows in the dark! But Juan even managed to get wonderful photos of those moments. Before the day I had asked him to really focus on the emotions and atmosphere, with a preference for candid, natural photos. He did an amazing job capturing the energy, feelings, and atmosphere for the whole event. He has a great eye for color and composition, and for the few posed photos we took, he tactfully and effortlessly guided us into better lighting and positions. There is always a lot going on at a wedding, but Juan was tuned in and put the utmost energy into tracking down and capturing as many meaningful moments as possible. We all felt very comfortable with him, and he easily meshed with the whole vibe. Everyone is impressed with the results, and it was a great experience.

This person was so amazing. She took the best video of my wife and i’s wedding day! Not only was the footage great, but she was extremely professional and a pleasure to be around. My wife loved her personality, which made it very easy to act natural when someone is filming them. She got videos of things that I didn’t even get to experience myself as the groom, so watching back again was like a new experience in itself. Her prices are great for the amazing quality I received. I would recommend her for any event, photo and video. We hired her for video, but she took better pictures than the photographer we hired. Thank you Danyell! 5 stars all the way.

I have worked with Michael on a multiple shoots of vacation rental homes. Every single time he has delivered beautiful photos in a timely matter. He is also extremely accommodating of whatever specifics are necessary for each shoot, even if it isn't his usual way of shooting. He is very easy to communicate with and a joy to talk to on the phone. I would highly recommend Michael to complete your real estate photography project.

Jim is one of the best photographers I have ever worked with. He can go out on a shoot alone and come back with great stuff. He always manages to get the best out of people. I have recommended him to many clients through the years and he has retained all of them. Elena Trevino Elena Trevino Design

I've worked with Barbara twice, for both professional photos and family holiday photos. She's creative and extremely professional, funny and kind, and I couldn't be happier with the entire process. I wouldn't hesitate to hire her again. She's the first person I'd recommend if asked about photographers and my go-to gal for any photography project. We love Barbara, and so will you!

We first started working with Lalita when my son Oliver was 1 month old.  I wanted to capture him in this newborn phase because before I know it, he’ll be in college!  I didn’t know what to expect because Oliver can be a handful at home with all his cuddly toys; a studio with new people could be very tricky.  Lalita immediately made us all so comfortable.  She had a heated blanket for Oliver and knew just how to put him at ease.  I was so impressed with her professionalism and her kind nature.  The photos were spectacular!  We’ve done 3 sessions with Lalita now and each group of photos is better than the next!  She even has a squeaky toy app on her phone that Oliver loves!  That was just one of her many tricks that brought out the most adorable expressions from Oliver.  Our most recent shoot was for Oliver’s 1st birthday, taken at the beach.  Despite the overcast skies, we got beautiful shots full of smiles and giggles, complete with crashing waves in the background.  Lalita works so well with kids, we got all the shots we needed and didn’t even miss naptime!  She is now our official family photographer and we wouldn’t have it any other way!  We LOVE Lalita!  I would highly recommend Lalita and Playful Photography for any family occasion!

Wow! What an amazing photographer! We got married on Dec. 15 at the Santa Barbara Zoo and so many people told us how hard it was to photograph there, Isaiah proved so many people wrong. He was fun and great to work with. His eye for detail blew my wife and I out of the water! His eye to see the small details of every piece of picture really helped. He knew how to blend colors and make us pop and stand out way more than I thought is possible! I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer!!!

Henry photographed my wedding and did an amazing job! He captured the most important day of my life so beautifully. I continue to get questioned on who our photographer was as they are very impressed with his work. For those of you in need of a quality photographer, Henry is top notch!

I have been a photographer for as long as I can remember. I am turning my love and passion for the art into a career. I am taking in classes now, and I am mainly trying to build my portfolio which means I will work for cheap, but the quality of images will be rich. Families, portraits, weddings/engagements, pets, and sports photos are what I love and strive to do.
