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 hired Dayvid to shoot our wedding in Malibu last month. We were a little nervous hiring some one we had never met, but we could not have asked for a better photographer. Our photos are amazing, Dayvid is a true artist!!! Dayvid was also very professional and had a calm soothing way about him that makes even those who do not like to be photographed feel comfortable. His attention to detail was wonderful, we are great full to Dayvid for capturing all of the great memories of the day that we now have for a life time.

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.

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!

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.

I can proudly say that Natalia has been our family photographer for more than four years now. She is an incredibly talented artist and is truly gifted at what she does - every photo session comes out MAGICAL. My favorite ones are Christmas themed as Natalia is able to capture some truly special moments and reflect the spirit of the holiday. She did our wedding photos/album as well, and all I could say was WOW! I am thankful to have Umbrella Shot as the one capturing some of the best moments of our life. She is professional, easy going, super fast in processing the pictures, and just awesome all the way around. Thank you, Natalia!!

Nataliia 's talent can't be denied. She took a portrait and lifestyle session of me on the summer and I absolutely loved how she capture my energy and spirit. She is quite gifted at capturing emotions, gestures and scenes that one can't even imagine they're there. I had a really good time during our shoot, she's a pleasure to work with; passionate yet, patient and specific about what she has envisioned for you. I would be happy to work with her again.

Forrest did a commercial job for and his attitude and work were fantastic. He made the subject feel relaxed, his energy was great and the shoot was professional and fun. End result, beautiful and artistic images. He put in substantially more time and effort that I could possibly have expected. I just hire him again, to shoot my personal headshots and portrait photos for my professional use. Forrest made me feel totally at ease and he made the shoot fun. Love the photos and hight recommend him. He is a pleasure to work with and a motivated and talented photographer. Great photos, responsive and fast results and super professional. I highly recommend him on all levels.

Denise is fantastic. It's clear that she's been honing her craft for a long time and the results speak for themselves. She took many, many shots and gave great ideas for which poses would work best. Then she had me pick my favorites and did an excellent touch up job on them. I would highly recommend Denise for headshots or any other type of portrait photography.

I first worked with Rafael for Mother's Day portraits at the beach. The pictures turned out great!! So I later worked with Rafael for my corporate headshots at his studio. Those pictures also turned out great. I will certainly work with him again. Strongly recommend him.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
