We needed photos for the cover and interior of a regional magazine, which is published by the nation's largest networking entity for building and construction professionals. We had an extremely tight time frame for booking the photographer, taking the photos and receiving photo edits. Will Hartman with Desert Rose Photography was able to expedite our request at a very reasonable rate, and had no problem managing our very detailed instructions on the execution of the photo shoot. (Also, none of the publisher's representatives attended the photo shoot - Will executed everything on site based on guidance he received via telephone and email.) He arrived early to the location to scope out the best places for outdoor photography, and also worked hand-in-hand with the photo subjects to stage everyone (~25 people) in a variety of settings and locations. Needless to say, Will went above and beyond to deliver photos that were engaging, energetic, and dynamic. It was a real pleasure to work with him. We plan to use him again if the need arises, and would recommend him to anyone else looking for a professional, creative, capable photographer.

I hired Mr. Tom Keene last Dec. 23, 2016 for a family photo shoot and I am very happy that I found him! By far, he's the BEST photographer I've worked with. He's very professional, on time, and fun to work with. He knows exactly what I wanted and he captured all the candid moments without any effort on our part. His best trait is that he's got a great sense of humor. He made us feel very comfortable, even the old folks in our group enjoyed hearing his jokes. My family laughed throughout the session non-stop. The session was not awkward at all, if you know what I mean. I've had many photo shoots and most photographers I worked in the past were awkward, shy, and does not talk much so it was tough to get the shots. Tom is the complete opposite. He will capture all the best moments, will give you directions on how to pose and he orchestrated our photo shoot with finesse. The most important part was that he traveled from LA to Palm Springs and his price was fair and reasonable. He will not nickel and dime, he's a very honest businessman. Overall, I am grateful that I found Tom. I will definitely hire him again in the future.

Kelli was great to work with - really responsive and accommodating. I schedule photo shoots from NY for shoots all over the country so it's important that the photographer I book can get what I need without me there to direct. She got all the shots I needed, worked with the local customer, and was prompt in her delivery. Would definitely hire again.

We absolutely loved Tom! We've been taking holiday pictures for over 15 years and believe me when I say it's hard to find a good photographer. Tom was prompt and clear in all of our communication leading up to the shoot. He was professional, flexible, and great with the kids. He had great ideas and gave us location options while remaining open to our location thoughts. He was early to the shoot and ready to go. He had great posing suggestions. Out of all the pictures we have ever taken together, he took our favorite picture that day. In addition, our pictures were ready before expected and to top it off, he was more than reasonably priced. Our family was raving about him after we left. It was one of the most pleasant and smooth photo shoots we had ever had, which is not always easy with a large family or a family with three kids under the age of five! I would recommend Tovicand Photography without hesitation. Wonderful!

We have had the pleasure of dealing with Joe for numerous personal as well as business photo shoots. Every personal shoot we have done has been roughly an hour and the professional shoots have varied based on requirement (event coverage). The locations are always based on our personal preference to which he has been more than happy to accommodate to. If we don’t know what we want, he’s been great about suggesting locations to obtain the best scenery and overall feel to suit our needs. Having dealt with around 5 or 6 previous photographers, I have to say that Joe is the only one that I would recommend. He was highly professional, courteous, offered extremely quick turnaround, and an end product that I have always been extremely happy with. I have to say we were impressed when he pulled out his iPad and opened a reference book to help us with different poses. He explained to us what the concept was behind each pose and which ones were more popular or common and which ones were less seen. He excels at capturing the emotion of the shoot rather than just the image itself. It becomes apparent what I mean when you see portraits that feel forced and bland, like no one wanted to be there. We always have fun during our shoots and I believe it really reflects in the end result. All summed up, I’d definitely recommend Joe Chung Photography if you ever photography services. He really goes above and beyond to ensure your satisfaction with all of the pictures he provides. He is professional, courteous, and offers a high quality product that I have always been satisfied with. If you need photography, you need a great photographer, and that’s exactly what he is.

Josh is a consummate professional. He made me feel comfortable and important from the moment I arrived and was very thorough and detailed in his explanation of the process and how we would go about executing the shoot. He listened to my thoughts and offered insightful suggestions for location shooting, positioning, posing, etc. He was never afraid to be honest with me and offer advice on how to improve the look of the photo. I was slightly nervous, what with this being my first photo shoot ever, and Josh made it so easy and smooth from start to finish. He is a gifted photographer who has a particular penchant for finding the perfect lighting depending on your skin/wardrobe/the look you're trying to achieve. I cannot recommend him more highly!

Hey all, I had my anniversary a year ago and I decided to have a photoshoot with hubby. I found UmbrellaShot online. Guys if you want to have beautiful, colorful and amazing pictures with a lot of fun and very nice photographer then you have to get her. My husband very shy especially in front of camera. So in the middle of our photo session I can't recognize him. He was very relax and always smile, just because Umbrella was very polite, nice, calm and confident about everything she did. I refer her to my beautiful girlfriend who has wedding. And the pictures is amazing. I'll recommend Umbrella 100%. P.S. If you not sure what photo shoot you want to have and where, Umbrellashot will always recommend some theme and places for photoshoot.

I worked with Joe Bryant on several occasions, on photo shoots (both artistic as well as commercial) and music video productions. Joe has a rare outstanding talent for the creative aspect of production as well as for the practical. He is a great photographer/DP and a resourceful and organized producer. Working with Joe has been a real pleasure, every time. He always goes above and beyond to get the maximum production value as well as making sure everyone is enjoying themselves. Joe is extremely professional, always cheerful and filled with inspiration, and has always delivered results on time. He moves fast, thinks fast, and he learns new skills very fast. Joe is a big asset to every team.

Charles is an amazing professional. He did both the engagement photo shoot and the wedding of my wife and I. I met him for the first time when he shot our engagement pictures. His calming presence immediately put me at ease. Not only did he choose a wonderful location and setting for the photo shoot, but he also came up with creative and thoughtful ideas for poses. My wife and I felt like superstars under the direction of a super photographer. It was way more fun than I could've imagined. Amazingly, Charles outdid himself 6 months later when he shot our wedding. We have friends who still rave about the pictures to this day. Charles has a keen eye for capturing the essence of an event, and the magical timing for being at the right place at the right time to capture those unforgettable moments. I truly can't say enough about his work. I would recommend him to the Obama's if they were looking for a photographer. On top of all his skill, he's an awesome human being with a great sense of humor, a dope husband to a beautiful wife and a dotting father to an adorable baby girl. Book Charles today and, like me, you will be raving about his work to everyone you know. I promise you will not be disappointed!

April took pictures at our corporate dinner event on 6/28/16. She did a great job, showed up on time, was relaxed and accommodating. April ran the end of the evening, when each attendee waits in line to take a photo with senior management, in a relaxed and fun manner. I plan on reach out to her again when the need arises. She always has a smile on her! Thanks. Jackie Loper

Elizabeth was very easy to work with from hiring thru the photo shoot and was very professional as well. She was kind; loving; calming and such a natural with my newborn granddaughter and captured amazing photographs that we plan to use to create hard bound memory books as well as framed prints. I would highly recommend Elizabeth Dixon Photography for newborn photography.

Remo is a very professional photographer. My fiance and I hired Remo to photograph our wedding in March of 2015. He was recommended to us by my brother in laws, sister. From the first time I talked with him, he was very helpful, nice and professional. He answered all of my questions in a quick timely manner. In July, we scheduled a time for Remo to photograph my fiance and I's engagement photos. Remo even drove up here to Sacramento to our home, to make the experience more about us and our relationship. He wanted us to take pictures in a setting that meant something to us. The day of the engagement photo shoot, my fiance and I were really nervous to be in front of the camera, and my fiance was really sick on top of that. Remo's caring and kind personality put us right at ease and made the experience so enjoyable. It was like we had known him for years, and not just meeting him for the first time face to face! A couple of short weeks later our pictures were ready, and they were amazing! He had done such a wonderful job capturing some really cool moments for us. We ordered some prints right off of Remo's website, and they were gorgeous. The picture quality was incredible and we were beyond happy with the outcome. We cannot wait for our wedding to come, and we already know the pictures will be just as incredible because Remo will be there! I absolutely recommend Remo to anyone who is looking for a prefessional photographer, who is kind, extremely talented and loves what he does!
