Juan put together a great mailer/handout for me in very little time--less than a week! He was super responsive, fielding calls, small changes, and brought my vision to life. It was an extremely collaborative process. He was able to understand what I wanted and made it look better than I had imagined!
One of the best photographers we have ever worked with! Will definitely be working with her again for future fashion PR and Marketing events.
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!
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.
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.
I loved working with Mariana! It was the best experience, and I've had years of working with photographers for fashion editorial and art photography. She far surpassed all of them. She is warm and really connects to the subject on a human level that let's one be authentically at ease. She's got a keen eye and beautiful and versatile aesthetic that can meet any clients need but shows her signature style. I highly recommend working with Mariana!
My guy Christian is dope with the Lens. The photoshoot we did for The Risk Takers Clothing line was real professional. From the location setting, to the quality of the shots I was intreeged. When we first got started, I could tell by the first few shots how the whole shoot was goin to turn out. When referencing any dope, talented photographers be sure to mention Christian D. Hogan. That man got some skills with the camera as well as his video work. Excellent!
Jacquelyne is a very professional photographer. She does unique shooting. She doesn't just point and shoot like many photographer who have been in the business for a long time. An excellent photographer is very hard to find so I wouldn't miss out on an opportunity to hire her as your awesome photographer. She is a fun and sweet. I always love to share her photography with my friends and family because it's the best. I love how she is able to capture people's natural beauty in nature. Great photographer is priceless. Memories value more than diamonds when you are able to capture it for a lifetime of happiness.
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'm a fashion/swimwear model located in Malibu. I've been modeling since the age of 14. I've met photographers all over the world. I've been published, I've worked with designers, walked shows..the typical model life. I actually contacted Melanie for some shots for my book. 2 of them have made it into my professional book and I have got jobs from them. Melanie is a good photographer. Makeup and hair is done well. She has a great attitude and knowledge of lighting and photography. Has great ideas and an artistic eye.
I know Ray as a highly skilled artist. As an event photographer his trained eye captures the all the different facets, his and his attention to detail allows even hidden beauty to shine through. His magic touch can turn a seemingly ordinary situation into visual poetry. Through his loving presence he brings out the best in people while his dedication to excellence produces exceptional results. Now here is the lucky part: Ray still has very reasonable rates. Id say contact him today if you are planning any event so you can get on his calendar :)
I recently had the pleasure to attend one of the Michael Cullan Photography shoots. I was impressed with how the photographers worked with the models and the level of professionalism while also making the models feel comfortable. Everyone had a good time during the shoots and the photographers were very accommodating to the models individual needs. I would definitely recommend Michael Cullan Photography to anyone and I plan on working with them again soon.
Every photograph I've ever seen her take, including my own, captures the most beautiful parts about that person. Her photos not only look amazing but they also highlight the unique personalities in everyone she photographs.
Diane has done my head shots, and photographed an event for me. She is an outstanding photographer, who can capture the best angles in photographing portraits, and she is also Outstanding at capturing the best action shots at events. Would hire her again in a heartbeat.
I've hired a LOT of photographers for events and Kyle was the best, by far, Here's why: Highest quality images, personable with all attendees, creative, and a real professional. I'm definitely hiring him again and will refer him to many others. The event was a large celebration of life for my sister at a restaurant in Malibu, California. The job was scheduled for 3 hours but he stayed 4. He was on time and exceeded my expectations, by far. I'm trying, but I can't find an area for improvement...he needs to keep doing what he's doing!
I first met Christina in 2013. I contacted her, to help me with a very delicate project. It was after the funeral of my husband. I needed to make a Video/DVD from a huge selection of photos. Photos of my husband's youth. And of our family life, to be used for a Memorial I was planning, for a later date. It was a very, sad and emotional period in my life. Christina was very sweet. She was compassionate and understanding of my feelings. She listened. Most of all she was a huge, help in the arrangement of the photos. As they helped tell the story of my husband's earlier years and Career. And, that of our Family life. She was extremely, patient when it came to select the music I was trying to pick, to be paired up with the Video/DVD. Music that helped better express my husband's life. And, of our life together. Christina was a tremendous help. Most of all she was very kind, throughout this process. Her work ethic was very, professional. On a personal note, I consider her a friend. I would use Christina's services again. Hopefully, for happier occasions next time.
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!
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!
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
