I contacted Adam Southard for new theatrical headshots. After reviewing several quotes and talking with potential photographers, I was most impressed with Adam's portfolio and his quick turn around time to answer my questions. Because I needed so many different looks, I also needed a photographer with a great eye and who could help me get the shots I needed (all in one shoot). I signed up for the headshot package - 6 looks for $300. I arrived to the shoot hair and makeup ready and had a friend who assisted me with the photos. Adam was very friendly to us both and I know immediately that the shoot would go well. Adam is based out of a home studio, so he has different backdrops and lighting inside his living room studio. It is a very comfortable atmosphere, again, making it much easier to get great shots. For each of the six different looks Adam took some inside the studio and then we went outside for a different lighting and feel. For this reason I feel I got such a great array of looks in a relatively short shoot! Following the photo shoot I received a dropbox file of all of my photos, in roughly three hours. I reviewed the photos with my agent and we selected twelve that were best for retouching. Adam immediately touched up the photos and sent them to me via dropbox. I had a few other finicky things I needed fixed in the photos (as per agents' request) and Adam very graciously fixed these and sent them back to me the following day. I came away with a great selection of photos that I can use for diverse roles/work. I give Best La Headshots/ Adam Southard 5 stars and fully recommend him to any and all actors. He is an outstanding photographer and also very kind and easy to work with (this is not always the case with photographers!). You will be very happy with the results!

I'll start off by saying that I do my research, so when I decided to look for a photographer to take some much overdue headshots, it was no different. I checked out the portfolios of many photographers and selected Adam Southhard of Best LA Headshots. I am very happy with the pictures he took and the experience that I had. Adam Southard is a very talented photographer; very professional, patient and timely. My research paid off. 5 Stars - I highly recommend Best LA Headshots.

I've been to many photographers before, but they're not up to par compared to my head shots Ive taken with Adam. I actually had to have him edit a recent headshot I took by another photographer even though he didn't take the pic himself. I highly recommend you check out his work. Also, for the people of color, he knows what lighting works with different shades of skin complexions - so no worries, he's got you covered! :) Thank you Adam!

Richard was the photographer for our wedding. Richard has an amazing talent for photography. He is professional, on time, and has a great eye. Richard busted his butt for us,long after any other photographers would have called it a day. Richard was full of great ideas, and more then willing to roll with any suggestions. Richard had more ideas then we had time for.That was too bad, because if we had all day, we would have had even more great photos. I would recommend Richard for any of your photography needs.

Richard was one of the best photographers my family, friends and I have ever worked with in over 30 years of throwing events, weddings and birthdays. He was professional, on-time, felt the vibe of the event (even dressed the part). He had the proofs ready in a timely fashion. I will plan on using him again. He also gained many referrals from my event alone as he was one of the stars. Thank you again.

I was asked by a university to have my pictures taken professionally for an article that is going to be published. Fortunately, I didn't have a lot of time to think about it, because I was becoming quite nervous. Kelli arrived with all of her equipment. She suggested I pull out a few accessories from my closet. I had a couple of clothing ideas in mind. She recommended I add some scarves and jackets that were added to compliment what I chose. She helped me relax, knew just what would look good inside the house and outdoors. She has an eye for backgrounds, lighting, and an exuberance comes out that makes the subject have fun and really enjoy the experience. I loved that she would show me some of the shots as we went along, and I loved the ability to veto pictures taken so the publisher couldn't choose them. If you need professional pictures,she is the photographer to call! Thank you, Kelli!

Tom is an exceptional photographer! He is very kind and has terrific qualities that stand out in his work. Aside from the amazing photographs that he takes the quality that sets him apart from other photographers is that he listens to the client. Often photographers take control in a way that doesn't necessarily produce the photographs of your choice. Tom doesn't do that. He asks questions of your wants and desires, and prepares for it. Before finding Tom I crossed off about ten other photographers who came across as arrogant, and very pushy. Tom works for you! He does the shoots the way you want them done. I hired Tom to do a maternity and newborn shoot. It was by the far one of the best experiences that I've had with a photographer. We discussed the locations prior to the shoots, and it was so fun and easy. I was very impressed by how personable Tom is. I felt as if it was a friend doing these shoots. Don't waste your time and money on photographers who pop up first on google search. Hire someone who is actually Good!

Joshua gave me exactly the headshot I was looking for. He really listened to me, and he was great at getting a good "look" from me. I love that I had so many shots to choose from. Technically everything was excellent--lighting, retouching, etc. Also Josh's communication skills were really good. We had to go back and forth a bit for scheduling, but he always got back to me right away and he was really flexible. I also thought the cost was very reasonable. I would recommend Josh to anyone looking for photography of any kind--wedding, product, portrait, whatever.

The way he was able to find different locations and get the most incredible pictures surpasses any other photographer we have worked with in the past. We loved the pictures so much we are coming back for family portraits. There are not enough stars for this photographer!

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!!

John was amazing in helping me pull off my proposal. I couldn't have been happier with him! The plan was to meet at a hotel in Santa Barbara where he would pretend to be the hotel photographer. We would walk up to him and ask him to take a picture of us using our phone. He would then offer to take a picture with his camera. After one test picture to make sure the lighting was perfect, I got down on my knee and proposed. John captured all of it. He had about 200 pictures of the actual proposal and then pictures in different areas of the hotel with the beautiful scenery in the background. John was very punctual, professional, and kind. John had great ideas for the pictures and also helped come up with the back story to get her in the right spot at the right time. Thank you so much John, the pictures are amazing and my fiancée couldn't be happier!

We booked a very last minute wedding at the County Court and advertised for a photographer through Thumbtack only the day before. John was great from the very start, excellent communication and helped us through the whole process. He knew the venue really well and gave us the opportunity to have photographs taken in locations we didn't know about. He listened carefully to our requests and adapted to us. At times, the venue was really busy, however he still took great shots around the tourists. We requested some photos on the beach, which was no problem at all, we were taken to three separate beaches and again had some super shots taken. We thoroughly enjoyed working with John and would highly recommend him.

Jeff Banty was great he has a studio in the back of his house with great lighting, a tv screen/computer that instantly let's you see if you liked your pictures. He will even give you time to fix your hair and makeup if something like hair or outfit was out of place. He put music on during my shoot and let me change into many different outfits. Jeff really took his time and really cared about the quality of my pictures adjusting the lighting several times. He sent me the pictures the same day like he promised. Very impressed and I have been with several other photographers in the past. I would also like to say he did not rush even though we went over our alloted time he just wants you to get the best pictures done .

My husband and I feel so fortunate to have met Charles. Not only is he an amazing and proficient photographer, but also a total joy to work with. He was friendly, polite, and so much fun to chat with! He immediately put us at ease, which made posing for our pictures feel natural, not forced or awkward. I also liked that he took our own ideas into consideration and encouraged us to be creative. He put his own spin on everything and knew how to capture the perfect angle, lighting, and background. I would recommend Charles to anyone looking for an incredible photographer with an impeccable ability to capture some truly magical moments on camera. I know that the pictures he captured are memories that we will cherish forever!! Thank you, Charles, you are the best!!

Samer was the photographer at my son's recent birthday party at a local museum. I don't know where to begin with describing the positive experience we had with him. First and foremost, he is one of the kindest and most gracious people I've met. He arrived early to the party and actually offered to help with setup! Then he started taking photographs of the entire museum. He captured every moment and aspect of the party that I never told him to do. His photographs came within a couple days and were really beautiful and extensive. He even suggested photo ops during the party in a discreet and non-intrusive way and when I saw the pics, I was grateful he did. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and already plan to have him as the photographer at our future parties. He was a true pleasure to work with and made the guests and my hard-to-please hubby very happy!

Jordan made everything so easy. For my portrait shoot he was perfectly punctual and came with a vision so the whole shoot went very smoothly. Even though it rained on the day we were shooting he improvised with some crafty umbrella work and was able to produce some great shots regardless. He also turned everything around way earlier than I expected, which was an added bonus and I supremely appreciate. Would definitely recommend.

Elizabeth was very responsive (first photographer of 3 to get me a quote and responded very quickly to any questions I had. She was on time, very professional and the pictures turned out great and were very representative of what was on her online portfolio. She had a variety of props and blankets to use in the photos as well. She was great with my daughter even when she was fussy and knows how to calm a crying newborn. She also had a very quick turnaround per our request for edited photos and our photo gallery. The photo gallery provided was very easy to navigate.

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!

Working with Ceri was a real pleasure as she clearly loves her work. At our wedding, she was gracious--and unobtrusive when the situation called for it. Both the formal posed images and the more candid, documentary shots of the ceremony and party afterward are lovely. As a professional photographer myself, I appreciate her approach: documentary, using available light, excellent framing and use of color. Ceri will definitely memorialize your event in a way that you will treasure. Hire her and you will be very pleased!

Nicole was absolutely WONDERFUL through the whole process of wedding photographer things. From the beginning she was extremely responsive and professional, always getting back to us within a matter of a day (or sometimes hours. it was crazy). She generously went out of her way to meet up with us in a location that was convenient for us, even before we had signed a contract with her. When we did meet up with her, she was very professional. She had many samples of her work and spoke with us at length about things we liked (and didn't like) in wedding photographs. She was very enthusiastic about looking at examples from other photographers wedding shoots to help her to get an idea of exactly what sort of "feel" we gravitated towards for our own wedding photographs. She was also very receptive to any thoughts we had, and made it clear to us throughout the process that our satisfaction with the photography was her highest priority. We were married in Big Sur (which is a bit of a drive from Ventura County) but she was very willing to travel and made arrangements to be sure she was in exactly the right place at the right time. We even were forced to change our accommodations for "wedding prep" photos at the very last minute, which ended up with her having to do quite a bit more driving than she had planned to, but she made it work and arrived with plenty of time, just as cheerful as ever! The photographs turned out beautifully. It's clear that she didn't just *LOOK* attentive during our meetings, but that she was taking everything we said about what we wanted from our wedding photographs very much to heart. They turned out perfectly! Just what I had imagined. I don't consider myself to be particularly photogenic (pretty, yes. photogenic... not so much. ) and she managed to catch my "good side" in nearly every photograph. The printed album that she put together for us looks great so far! (We're still in the editing/ reviewing stage, so we have only seen a digital facsimile of it.) I'm a picky girl and I only had a few changes I wanted to make in teh photographs that she chose. Even then it was mostly about making sure a photo of my grandparents was in it, or switching the placement of certain photos. I thought she did a wonderful job picking photos that captured the mood and flow of the event in a way that allowed us to remember the feeling of our wedding day just as it was. Which is good, because it was an amazing day that went by waaaaay to quickly! TL;DR: Nicole is professional, friendly and accommodating. She places a priority on client satisfaction and clearly enjoys her work. The photographs were beautiful and exactly what we had discussed with her. I feel like she delivered service above and beyond what I expected for what we paid.

Nicole Henshaw is truly a hidden gem in the photography world! After countless hours of searching for just the right photographer to shoot my daughter's senior pictures, I contacted Nicole. From the very start I was impressed with her professionalism. Prompt replies to all my emails, detailed questions about what my expectations were for the shoot, thoughtful suggestions & input to help produce the best possible results. Her price packages are very clear & easy to understand...you know exactly what your getting without worrying about extra hidden fees. The day of the shoot she contacted me & we made plans to meet at Santa Monica Pier. When my daughter & I arrived we found Nicole had been there for awhile scouting out the location & determining where the best lighting would be. She was very sweet & kind & my daughter later told me that she really felt comfortable with Nicole. And honestly you could see it the entire session. My daughter looked like she was having the time of her life!! I knew that the pictures would be amazing, but when I received them in an email yesterday, I was speechless!!! I began tearing up as I went through one photo after the other. Nicole captured my daughter's spirit & beauty perfectly. This was exactly what I was hoping for and more!! I highly recommend Nicole Henshaw for any photo needs that you might have!!! As a matter of fact I will soon be scheduling a mother/daughter session with Nicole before my daughter leaves for college!

She is a very flexible, friendly, and kind spirited photographer. She enjoys her work very much, and is willing to help you reach your ideas and hopes for good pictures. She did my graduation pictures and successfully captured a very important time in my life! She understands the importance of connecting with you so you may feel comfortable enough to take great photos! I would recommend to anyone in need of graduation photos, wedding photos, modeling photos, and more.

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.

Yanira was an amazing photographer. She photographed my daughter's 15th birthday and captured every important moment beautifully. She was professional and was so willing to do all I had asked of her with grace and professionalism. At very late notice, I asked her to come early to photograph my daughter as she was getting ready and without hesitation she granted my request, was prompt and went right to work! She is reliable and was outstanding at capturing every detail of our party including pictures with family members and friends, flowers, decor, all the special moments I would have never thought of! She left no detail unnoticed. The pictures are of the highest quality and perfect! I would highly recommend her and I am definitely using her again! I am grateful for having the all the special moments so beautifully captured by Miss Yanira!

We LOVE working with Cory! He has done our family portraits for the past couple years, and I can't tell you how many compliments I receive on our holiday cards. We have three little boys, 5 and under, and Cory is patient, and accommodating, with his time and scheduling. Every picture of my boys always seems to capture their personalities, and they love working with him as well. He is quick to get you your proofs as well. Some photographers I've waited up to a month plus after events, but he will work to help with your deadlines etc. We're doing a Mother's Day shoot with him this year, and I can't wait to see our pictures! I highly suggest working with Cory you will not be disappointed with your experience, and finished product.

Our family's photo shoot with Cory was so easy. He was professional, efficient and great with the kids. I normally loath these family photo shoots since they usually feel like pulling teeth with the kids not cooperating, and drag on forever. Our shoot with Cory flew by and he took some of the best pictures our family has. Super high quality and great service. I highly recommend hiring Cory to be your photographer.

Cory was great! He took fantastic photos of my family. Very professional and patient. I have used other photographers in the past and was always disappointed. Cory knows what he is doing. I will always use him as our family photographer!

Angela went above and beyond to capture all the little details and joy that took place on our big day. With her sense of humor and respect for what she does she always put me at ease when I would start to get the jitters. Many times photographers have to act as wedding coordinators and the flow of the day can often depend completely on them. Angela was personable, professional and reliable, not to mention a blast to work with on our wedding day! We have gotten so many compliments on our photos and absolutely love them all! Angela is super flexible and willing to try new, exciting things to make your photos great. She took us to new locations though out downtown Minneapolis for our wedding shoot so that we could have the city skyline in our special day. The best part of having Angela Photography as a part of our wedding, aside from feeling like we were working with a close friend, was that we had so many people tell us how fun our photographer was and how she treated them so well. Not to mention she’s the sweetest most accommodating individuals I've ever met! THANK YOU!!! I would highly recommend her to anyone.

I had no idea that photography was going to be so much of my wedding budget. I was really surprised. When I called around and emailed several different photographers and studios I noticed that many won't send a price list and that many won't allow galleries on the web. I was really disappointed! Angela was forthright and honest and straight-forward. She's got very simple pricing and offers a wonderful value. Our wedding was the last time that my grandmother was with the family. Now we have the group photos and the candids and the album and she's in all of them. I'm blown away. My husband wanted me to tell you all that she's good about being quick and natural with the couple photos and that she was easy to understand when she gave directions.

Angela did a fabulous job and we enjoyed her so much! She's professional, creative, easy to work with, organized, flexible and most of all: fun! We looked at lots of other photographers in Northfield and Burnsville. She's just got it all. The pics are really pretty and show us at our best. WE LOVED her.

After a failed attempt at some newborn photos with another photographer, we luckily stumbled upon Marcus. From the very beginning he was responsive, open to ideas and very easy to work with all before we even met him!!! On the day of the shoot he showed up on time and was even nicer than I expected. He took time to listen to what we wanted and spent so much time trying to get the perfect shot of our daughter. I loved how good he was with her and how he had ya maneuver her into different positions. He never even touched her, which I think helped our little girl stay so calm. He was so warm and gentle with her and extremely patient while waiting for her smiles. He stayed until he felt that he had enough wonderful photos for us. He also did some family photos for us too. Oh! Did I mention that he got edited photos back to us that same night!? He also sent about a hundred images over to us that we are able to access whenever we need. I cannot recommend Marcus enough!!! We loved him and will absolutely use him again in the future! Thanks Marcus!

Marcus is an extremely talented person. Through the years I've seen all types of work come out of his field but nothing quite as impressive as Marcus's. Even after years of working with him I have not seen the level of work he creates often, he is a true gift.

I gave very little guidance and instead simply gave an overarching theme that I wanted to capture in my promo video. He used his artistic talents to capture exactly what I was looking for.....

Randall showed up ready to go, he was all over without being a nuisance he even brought another photographer to help out with the event. He captured all the important moments and even got some great candid shots as well. He was very friendly, professional and easy to work with. I’ll hire him to do my husbands 45th also. Thank you Randall

My Husband and I used Guinn Studios to take pictures for us during our baby shower of our daughter and it was great. The owner Randall brought additional photographers at no cost to us! We received over 500 pictures total and he did edits on over 100 photos for us at no extra cost. We loved working with him!
