I needed a professional headshot ASAP for an official press release announcing my brand new gig. I knew I wanted a headshot that conveyed my personal style but also one that would also fit within the context of my industry (creative industries). So I researched a ton of professional photographers in my area but felt that either their headshots looked generic or were way overpriced. So I turned to Victoria—she listened patiently and closely to what I was looking for, helped eased me into the photoshoot with confidence, and worked with me until I got the shots I was really happy with. Plus she turned around the headshots in a day. I would highly recommend Victoria to anyone looking for not only great results but a rewarding and comfortable process, and I will definitely be going back to her for all my future photo needs.

If you want a photographer who is going to do more than just take pictures Jesus Gonzalez is the person for you because he is far more than a photographer. He is an artist who has the vision to see and capture colors, lighting and energies in any scene he is photographing. His focus and priority is creating uniquely beautiful photographs for his clients either digitally, on photographic paper or even on framed canvas. HIs work comes alive through its colors and features that are enhanced in mesmerizing ways. I have seen some of his work and found it to have an unbelievable 3-dimensional effect that made me feel like I was right there in the scene. If you want ordinary pictures those photographers are a dime a dozen. But if you want quality artistic memories of your special events Jesus is the photographer you can trust to do that for you! He is worth every penny and much, much more.

Dakota was prompt with getting us our “sneak peak” photo’s from our event. The ones we’ve received are such great quality pictures. He was on time and less expensive than other photographers I looked at. We had 430+ people at our event and he was able to handle it without a problem! Thanks Dakota!

I can't say enough good things about Ms. Latoya!! She was very punctual and ready to get down to business! She shot my son's entire prom send-off (which was extremely busy) and she oozed nothing but patience. One of the things I found to be heartwarming is the fact that she called my son by his name to get the perfect shot. That goes a long way!!! Whether she knows it or not, she's now our family photographer!!! Thank Latoya for creating a memory!

Zak provided an amazing photography experience during my portrait sessions. Zak’s critical eye distinguished and emphasized the best features of me through the photos he took. Zak went above and beyond to first understand my needs, then conducted a thorough pre-shoot consultation to ensure I was prepared to look and shoot my best, and finally was very accommodating. Thanks to his insights and perspective, he suggested attention to details and attractive poses I would have never considered otherwise. He is highly educated, incredibly organized, and passionate about his craft. Zak might charge a bit more than other photographers, but is definitely worth his rate given the experience and effort which shows through his work. Trustworthy, candid, and fun describe Zak. I look forward to choosing him again for my future photography needs. Highly recommended!

GREAT, GREAT, GREAT! I can not recommend Danielle Heinson enough! My wife and were on a budget and posted an ad seeking a wedding photographer on Craigslist but we were nervous about doing so. We were bombarded with responses. Most of which were mediocre photographers and basically what you would expect from posting to Craigslist on a whim. Two photographers stood out to us and we in the end decided on Danielle. We could not be happier with that choice. She was an absolute joy to work with! Easy to contact with and to do so on your time. Oh, and her photos are FANTASTIC! You can not go wrong. She is very easygoing while maintaining a professional relationship. She really did a great job and we can not recommend her enough.

Josh is such a great photographer! He’s super chill and flexible, and makes sure to get the photos to you right away! He’s really easy to work with and has a creative eye. He had a very authentic style-he doesn’t try and hide behind tons of editing and filters, which is really cool. Definitely recommend!

I recently hired Lauren to photograph my engagement. She went above and beyond. Her pictures turned out excellent, but what impressed me more was her professionalism. She truly cared about making sure the experience was perfect and I received everything I needed. I contacted her to make sure she was ready for us to arrive and she had been setup waiting well in advance. I had many moving parts to my proposal and I did not have to worry at all about her doing her job. It was fantastic! She was also proactive and efficient in returning my photos quickly. If you want a photographer who cares about providing a personal experience for her clients then you need to hire Lauren! She will go the extra mile.

I needed a professional headshot photo in a short timeframe. Since I never had professional photos done before and had no idea how to find a good professional in order to help me out, I was initially relatively intimidated by the process. Looking up the websites from several photographers, most were only advertising wedding and recreational photography services. Robert put me at ease from the very beginning, showing me some sample headshots he took and explaining me the whole process as well as what I could expect. During all of my interactions with Robert, he has been very professional. Also, it is obvious that he is passionate by what he is doing. He overall did exceed my original expectations, delivering some excellent headshots in a very short timeframe!

Joe is absolutely an amazing photographer. He made me feel very comfortable during the shoot and gave me a lot of tips on how to pose and express myself in front of the camera. Joe is energetic, professional, artistic, and creative, and his work is really stunning. I was very happy with the outcome. I would recommend him to anyone!

After doing a bit of looking around and speaking with many photographers, I selected Zachera to shoot my engagement and I could not have made a better choice. Zachera's enthusiasm, flexibility, and knowledge made a milestone day in mine and my fiancé's life a dream come true. She captured the joy, excitement, and if I'm to be honest nervous energy beautifully all while making us feel completely at ease it the post-proposal photo shoot. If you want important moments captured beautifully on film to reflect upon for life, you need to contact Zachera, I promise you will not be disappointed. I know I sure wasn't!
