At the very last minute, my daughter discovered she needed a professional headshot for her med school applications. Adam made him self available within 24 hours - drove from his studio to our home in Westwood. Arrived on the dot, ready to work - with all of his professional equipment. He wasted no time in scouting out the best locations (inside and out), as far as background and lighting. Within one hour, he had set up 3 locations, and had taken over 100 digital shots. He had the proofs ready to review within 4 hours and, when we finally made our choice (a hard one because they were all so good), he offered to professionally re-touch (fly-away hair, wayward shadows, a zit or two!, and more) free of charge. Totally happy with our choice to have him do the job. He's a dad, too, so he has a well-rounded take on life and an easy demeanor. A+ Five-stars! He would be great for family portraits, as well.

We just had family portraits taken with Ivan from Creative Vision and the work was incredible. He was really good with our baby and 9 year old. He is extremely meticulous about the smallest of details and each of the pictures will turn out far better then you would expect. I would recommend him for any event and I will definitely use his services again.

Brad was outstanding in every way! He responded to emails quickly, came to the location an hour early to scout out good shots, creative in our poses, and obviously passionate about photography. In addition, his turn around of photos were amazing- same day! Thank you for a memorable family portrait!

In this order- Headshots, maternity, and baptism... these were the 3 times I have hired Richard. I cannot wait to hire him for my wedding. Let me just keep this simple. I have worked with many. Never has there been a time it was more fun, fulfilling, exciting, eventful, professional, easy, and worthwhile among other things. I have always kept my endorsements to myself but being consistent 3 times in a row over a 2 year period is hard to come by. Richard is so efficient and also cares a great deep about his work and what "he puts out there". A true artist who brings the most precious moments to life. I cannot get enough of looking at our photos. Not to mention all the compliments I receive on his work when people ask "who was the photographer?" Thanks to him, our memories will be timeless and beautifully captured. Enough said, hire the guy and save yourself the trouble and disappointment of someone else.

We are new to California so we knew no one to do newborn and family portraits. Found Kelli on here and she arrived today and we were so pleased . She was so creative and sweet , made us all feel comfortable and handled my 19 month like a pro! She spent so much time with all four of us and made sure that there was not one pose or moment that we missed ! I would hire her again in an instant and can't wait to see the finished product!

Sheryl was the photographer at our wedding, and I cannot say enough about the amazing job she did. Everything from her communication to her professionalism was outstanding. She made everyone at the wedding feel comfortable and at ease. I was so impressed with the little things she did like making sure my dad has his boutonniere on before the ceremony and capturing the moments that I would never have thought of. Above all if you want a photographer to be creative and use her artistic skills to create breathtaking results, then Sheryl is the one!

Joshua at Monesson Photography took my real estate head shots. Joshua was the first to respond to my inquiry and was prompt the entire time. He was very easy to talk to and knew exactly what I needed. I absolutely loved that he was open to my ideas as well. He also recommended a fantastic hair/make-up artist, Annaliza Galo. He was on schedule when shooting and made me feel at ease the whole time. He was great at advising me with my posture, poses and even my outfits! After the shoot, Joshua took care of my edits so quickly! He really went beyond my expectations. I appreciate Joshua's great sense of humor and his dedication to his work in photography. I look forward to working with him again in the future.

Dino did some portrait photos for me to use for my office's website, and he worked magic with what is usually a not so photogenic subject. He knew how to bring the best out in me while all the while being laid back, genuine and professional. I highly recommend his services. You will come away with a good experience and great photos.

Sasha is not only an exceptional photographer with supreme talent, but an incredible human being with the most kind and warm spirit! She did a photoshoot for my 2 year old's birthday, covering the event as well as doing portraits for our family. From the onset, she was remarkable in every aspect…not only was she responsive and professional but also very accommodating and personable! She spent a long time on the phone with me to discuss the project. I was initially very nervous because my baby had stranger anxiety and is camera shy. Sasha put me at ease right away, sharing ideas about how she would make it a fun for my baby and ease her into it. She was very meticulous in noting all my requirements and very cooperative with all my demands. On the day of the photoshoot, she came early to help us setup and got some props and play things for my baby. I was very touched to see how loving she was with my baby and carried her around to make her feel at ease. Everyone in our family loved her and she made the whole process so seamless. Sasha was also very patient and diligent during the subsequent phase of reviews and edits. I have to admit, I'm not an easy person to please but when I saw the finished deliverables with beautiful pictures and absolutely stunning video, I was floored! Despite the low light condition indoors, her photos came our brilliant and vibrant. Best of all, she made everyone look gorgeous! :) LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her work! Sasha will be our go to person for all our photography needs going forward. I would recommend her whole-heartedly for any events as well as personal and professional photoshoots.

I hired Yana to take some family photos and individual photos of my grown sons. Even though it was cold and windy the day of the shoot she was able to get us to relax and got some really great shots. It was very hard to pick just a few so I ended up with 12 different poses! Her photography really caught the essence of my family and I would highly recommend her for any individual/family/portrait photography even though she was a little more expensive than some others photographers.

It was great working with her. Her price was exactly as quoted. We were a large extended family group that wanted portraits of our whole group and of individual family units at a local park. She got there early and was friendly, professional, and very easy to work with. She had a good balance of letting us pick the poses, groupings, and places at the park, as well as making suggestions. She even made the edited photos available by the next day. And when I later asked for unedited versions, she happily made those available too, the same day I asked. I would definitely use her services again and recommend her to others.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
