We love Richard and we love his photos! We photographed our engagement photos, rehearsal, wedding day prep and wedding. He is very easy going and easy to get along with. He also gets along with other wedding vendors. Beautiful photographs! He catches the moment, has great ideas and listens to yours!

I had an amazing time with Yousef. Very professional he help me a lot with trying to find a place in Orange county since he is not from the area. we picked the best spot for our engagement pictures. He was on time and we got right away with the photo shoot. I loved how our pictures came out. He did great job.

We hired JP'S for wedding pictures. The photographer is very friendly and kind. I am happy with the first half of the pictures, not the rest. I worked with professional photographers before. When we took pictures outdoors, they would move around a lot to take pictures from different ankles. But with JP'S, because of his lack of mobility (or whatever other reasons), some pictures are just not as nice as I hoped. To be honest, some pictures turned out nice. We wore two different type of outfits on that day. First one turned out nice, not the one in wedding dress. The photographer offered to fix some of the pictures, but we decided not to bother. We spent $500 for an hour of shooting pictures. I want to put it here, may use as reference for anyone who is looking to hire a photographer. I won't work with this one again.

I had the privilege to work with Natalie for my engagement photos last Tuesday January 30th. She was absolutely amazing. She was helpful, kind and patient with us as it was our first photo shoot of any kind. She helped guide us on how to pose and feel at ease as she shot the shoot. She also let us pick a couple of spots as well as gave us a couple of ideas for where to shoot. Outright outstanding person. I'm excited to see how our photos turned out. Highly Recommend

It has only been such a short time from our wedding and we are still so in awe of the work Doug did. He recommended two photographers for our wedding and even though I didn't think it was very big and necessary, I'm so glad I did! He and Bryan were able to be at different locations and have different views and it was perfect! They were easy to get along with, funny, personable and everyone loved them. The pictures came out absolutely incredible and the turnaround time to completion was impressive. They captured all of our requests plus things we wouldn't have thought of. You can never have a "do-over" for wedding pictures and I am so grateful to Doug and Bryan for the impeccable job they did. I would highly, HIGHLY recommend them to anyone for any photography needs!

My fiancé and I are both very shy people when it comes to being in the limelight, also didn't want to take engagement photos because of our awkwardness. During our hunt, for our photographer, we wanted someone to capture moments as opposed to the cheesy smile and pose. So glad we found Alexa! Her work is beyond amazing! From the minute she stepped into the bridal lair, she handled the wedding chaos of missing bridesmaids, demanding mothers, with patience and kindness. We are a Filipino couple, and with our huge wedding entourage, Alexa respected all the photo requests from our entourage. Sorry by the way! When it finally came down to taking our newlyweds shots, she made us feel so comfortable, and directed us on how to feel at ease! Thank you Bright Bird Photography, for the love and energy in capturing our big day!Your craft is truly "on point." We are looking forward to the photos!

My fiance and I interviewed a couple other photographers for our wedding photography but decided to go with Vanessa. We started with engagement photos to get to know each other before our wedding, and we couldn't be happier working with her. She made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera and just be ourselves. She has so much of positive energy and was willing to meet our needs and wants. The high resolution images were given to us within a week, and they turned out great. We can't wait til our wedding and working with her again. I highly recommend Vanessa as your photographer to capture your special moments.

Elizabeth was absolutely amazing! She shot our engagement photos and the outcome was just perfect. She got to know me and my fiancé and then tailored our shoot accordingly to our personalities, experiences and relationship. She made us feel comfortable during the shoot and got my now husband to enjoy the picture taking process since he was shy about doing it. I also used Elizabeth for my maternity, baby shower and our new baby photos, of which we are beyond joyed at the beautiful photos she took. She was very creative with the shots and our baby loved her. She is great with adults and children:) we will use her again for many memories down the line.

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.

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!

Elizabeth took excellent photos for my engagement, my wedding, and later I hired her again to do my maternity shoot as well as take newborn photos of my son. I am so happy with her work! I wouldn't change a thing and highly recommend her to everyone! Her skills are amazing and she's so fun and easy to work with. I never felt uncomfortable or shy - everything was so natural.

Yana did a fabulous job on my engagement photos! We had a much longer than expected day shooting photos, and Yana did a great job of keeping us focused and having fun. The edited photos were more than beyond what I thought they would be; impeccable clarity, and amazing color. I could not believe it! I would highly recommend Yana to anyone. She is professional, fun, and amazingly talented.

This person was so amazing. She took the best video of my wife and i’s wedding day! Not only was the footage great, but she was extremely professional and a pleasure to be around. My wife loved her personality, which made it very easy to act natural when someone is filming them. She got videos of things that I didn’t even get to experience myself as the groom, so watching back again was like a new experience in itself. Her prices are great for the amazing quality I received. I would recommend her for any event, photo and video. We hired her for video, but she took better pictures than the photographer we hired. Thank you Danyell! 5 stars all the way.

I've hired Keelin for several different shoots now. She provided me with beautiful newborn photos several years ago when my son was born, she followed our journey and photographed him for his first birthday, and she gave my wife and I an excellent engagement shoot with our son. If (and hopefully when) we have more milestones and children, I will definitely be including Keelin on our big days.
