Working with Les was such a a great experience! I'm pretty picky when it comes to pictures of myself - especially a picture for my website. Les did an outstanding job of listening to what I wanted and most importantly, produced a terrific headshot (easily the best shot I've ever had of myself). He is very professional, easy to work with, and he doesn't over charge like a lot of other photographers in the area. I highly recommend Les Schwartz Photography!
Shuri is a fabulous photographer! She has been our family photographer for the past 10 years...taking family portraits that really captured the best in every one in the family. Most recently, Shuri came to my daughter's bridal shower and was able to combine engagement pictures and photos of the happy event. One year she even created my Christmas card and had them delivered to me promptly...faster than I expected, which is always a plus during the hectic holiday time. You will never be disappointed with her...she is very professional and has also become a treasured friend. I have always been able to count on her to come through with exactly what I need.
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.
Madeleine has a great artistic eye. She makes the whole photo session experience fun, all while getting the best variety of photos. She is an excellent photographer and a true pleasure to work with.
My experience with Fenton Productions far exceeded my expectations! Robert Fenton is the ultimate professional. Mr. Fenton listened to my needs and he gave exactly what I wanted, only better! I received gorgeous photographs and video footage in a timely and reasonably priced manner. I would highly recommend Fenton Productions and I look foward to Robert Fenton creating more beautiful photographs for myself and my family!
My son wanted an outdoor, casual photo for his graduation announcement that reflected his personality more than the traditional headshot. Keelin was able to reflect my son's personality in the photos and meet our budget. She was very clear in her pricing and package offerings as well as easy to work with onsite.
There are literally no words to describe Ashley Wolford. After meeting with several other photographers, she was the only one my family and I liked. Her professionalism is unlike any other - prompt with responses, super creative. Her work is impeccable! Ashley captures your event in a way you never thought possible.
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!
Christina Jaramillo Photography flew to Phoenix to photograph our wedding. She has an innate ability to capture real shots- not just posed. We keep our wedding album on our coffee table and regularly look through her pics- the dancing, laughter, conversations- all captured by Christina. Shes really good at using the lighting to get great photos too. About half the photos were taken outside and they are absolutely beautiful. The church was a darker and the photos were awesome. Since the wedding, Christina took newborn pics for us and we plan to use her in the future for family photos.
My daughters head shots came out beautiful. I have checked out other photographers in SB and Lucia is the best by far. We are so thankful to find her. Sommer was very comfortable with her and the turn around time of images was super quick. Love her!!
Jeri was great! We rather spontaneously decided to have family photos taken while on vacation. She was helpful in directing us to a beach with great scenery for our pictures. It was very difficult to narrow down our selection from the proofs.
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
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, hell be in college! I didnt 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! Weve 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 Olivers 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 didnt even miss naptime! She is now our official family photographer and we wouldnt have it any other way! We LOVE Lalita! I would highly recommend Lalita and Playful Photography for any family occasion!
I booked this photographer for a daddy and son package the experience was great she met me at the location and took a ton of photos. This is by far the best bang for your buck per say the price was reasonable for the amount of work she did. The best part is that you get the pics digitally meaning u can keep the pics for ever and share with family and loved ones instantly. By far the best photographer in town. I highly recommend her for your photo needs.
family photos, really enjoyable, Loni was professional and helped us feel comfortable so we could get some natural shots. Highly recommend Loni
I worked with Rachel over a long project period of ca. 6 weeks. She was very communicative, professional and fast. The resultant photography for our book was brilliant. We have worked with numerous photographers for our books over the last two years and Rachel stands head and shoulders above the others. I can strongly recommend her!
Todd created fabulous lasting memories of our wedding day. He was easy to work with, professional and prompt. There were so many photographers to choose from but I know we had the absolute best!
Michael has photographed my family several times over the last 9 years These beautiful framed photos receive so much attention and praise from my many visitors and clients It seems each picture tells a story of a magnificent human life, from the tender delight on the face of my youngest child to the world worn love lined face of great grandma ! Michael will be sensitive to his client and will win their trust
