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.

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!

Very quick job for a last-minute request. Very accommodating! Mic did a great job with our family portrait photo shoot. She was open to take all of our creative shots and locations. She was very accommodating with our somewhat crazy but fun family and location changes from the studio to outdoors in the park, incorporating props, and capturing natural moments. Without a doubt has a passion for photography and takes pride in her work. It was also easy to view our pictures on Pixieset and choose our favorites after the shoot. We happily recommend Michelle to anyone who wants a photographer who is open to exploring creative ideas and capturing spontaneity.

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.

Mukaila was a great photographer, and truly a joy to work with. He was perfect for our group since he remained unobtrusive yet got some really excellent shots. He also had the pictures ready and uploaded within 2 days! I wouldn't hesitate to use him again!

A true artist and conceptualist but never at the expense of what the client wants to achieve. I’ve seen so many different styles of photography from Amanda and no matter what the project there is supreme artistry and composition. She illicits a naturalism and authenticity from her subjects with ease and sensitivity. When I need a photographer, there is no question, Amanda.

After unfruitful searches for a reasonably priced and quality wedding photographer online, Ceri reached out to me after I posted a request on SimplyBridal. Ceri was our photographer for two wedding occasions that fell within a week of a each other - an intimate, traditional religious ceremony in a downtown NYC church, and a large and more casual celebration of extended family and friends at an upstate restaurant on the Hudson River. She was our lone photographer, but never missed beat - she perfectly captured the mood of both occasions, as different as they were. Without needing much guidance on our end, she dived right into some pretty chaotic settings and began to snap away, all while giving us clear creative direction. Her attention to detail was impeccable and she noticed things that picked up very well on camera. In addition, Ceri was extremely flexible (she adjusted her schedule to accomodate a last minute time change) and adaptable (to different scenes, crowds and environments). On top of that, she was a total pro - she had traveled all the way from LA to shoot our two events, and spent time in the UK in between. While so much intercontinental travel can be stressful and draining, she was upbeat and kind enough to bring us a wedding gift from her trip! She is as thoughtful and classy as her work. Her pricing was also bargain (in fact, she blew the competition away) and we got a great value for the quality of her portfolio. She has a true talent, and I will cherish these photos forever. Ceri can really do it all, and I highly recommend her!

Tiffany photographed my wedding, showing up early to get great shots of the venue and decor, and staying through the dance party to capture a range of great candids and portraits. I could not be more happy with her enthusiasm and talent. Everyone at the wedding loved her energy and great direction. I can't believe how much she was able to cover on her own and the photos look amazing. She was also remarkably quick with editing turnaround. I would use Tiffany Kyees again in a heartbeat and highly recommend her to anyone who asks.

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.

Very pleased!!! I used them for a large group photo and a self portrait for personalized thank you cards that I plan to distribute to the hundreds of volunteers helping out at a convention I'm attending overseas. I downloaded the finished product as instructed to my computer. From there, I made a copy of their photo to my computer as instructed, then uploaded it to the printing site. It was absolutely amazing to see how much more clarity the finished product was versus uploading a selfie from a smartphone! Also I am now using their portrait as my official profile photo on several business websites.
