It was great working with the photographers. We were just supposed to have one photographer, but we ended up with two, so more photos! It was an outdoor wedding and the weather didn't fully cooperate; the photographers did a good job working with the elements and caught some nice moments.

The photographers were fantastic and got all the shots I requested plus other awesome shots I didn't think of. I got some sample photos a week after the wedding and they look fantastic. Can't wait to see the rest!

Jason goes above and beyond your 'standard' photographer in his photos to create masterpieces. The final product is simply a work of art.

Jerrad is the best photographer we have ever had the pleasure of working with. We had so much fun my family forgot we were even taking pictures. Every single shot is nothing short of amazing, I can't stop looking through them...I love every one of them! He's so kind and patient with children and somehow managed to capture the very best of all of us! He is very creative and has a great eye. We will be using him for all of our photos, I highly recommend him!

My husband and I are church pastors and are in constant need of decent pictures to use for various things, so we scheduled a photo shoot with Deanna. She took us to a couple different locations, scoped out the surroundings, and then the rest was history. Artistry in the making! She has a way of looking at things that no one else does! She captures things that I didn’t even know existed and turns them into something that will literally make you catch your breath for a moment. When the pictures were ready, I remember being in awe by the beauty, the angles, the emotion in the pictures, the variety of landscape choices and photography techniques. Not many people have her gift. I also loved how I was able to download every single picture directly to my computer to use any time I wanted! If you’re looking for someone guaranteed to deliver every time, your photographer is Deanna Sammons.

I highly recommend her as your next and only photographer! She photographed our wedding and several family sessions after we had kids!!

Top notch service! It was an absolute pleasure to work with the photographers at Impression Arts. Not only were they really nice and fun to work with but they were consummate professionals and their creativity rendered fantastic photos. I could not have asked for anything better. They captured the best in our wedding ceremony and reception and we'll remember it for the rest of our lives.

The experience that Lenny offers is top notch, he is friendly, helping and understanding of the needs of both the bride and groom. We had special request that Lenny had NO PROBLEM attending to. I will recommend Lenny to any and all my friends and family that are looking for a photographer. The photos look beautiful and he captures moments that you may not even see!

Overall the quality was decent. Had 2 photographers that took many pictures, there were a lot of action pictures of people smiling and laughing, which I loved. I like how there's a balance of me and my wife and half the guest. I wish I had more time to do group pictures. It was definitely more expensive and with that money, could probably had better pictures

We have hired Chris on 4 different occasions to take photographs of rental properties that we were selling. The photos were used for our promotional sales flyers, lawn signs and MLS listings and in every case he did an excellent job of capturing each home's personality and showcasing each home's best features and selling points. The photos were crisp, clear, well lit and beautifully composed. His expertise with his wide angle lens provided excellent coverage of even the smallest and most cramped rooms with absolutely none of the distortion that many less professional real estate photographs seem to suffer from. Chris was very personable, easy to work with, and able to meet our scheduling needs for each and every shoot. His prices are more than reasonable, his turnaround time was extremely fast and we could not be more pleased with his services. We would highly recommend him to anyone that needs the services of a professional real estate photographer - you only get one chance to make a good impression with a potential buyer and he will make sure your home is able to put it's best foot forward!

Our Unplugged Wedding in a Redwood Grove. A picture is just a picture unless it captures the essence of the moment. It takes someone with dynamic talent, an eye for composition, and understanding of human behavior and emotions to create aesthetically beautiful memories through pictures. If this is what you're looking for from a photographer, then look no further. Alfred is your guy! I could probably write a thesis about our experience that day-- how Alfred was incredibly professional, how he showed up super early and stayed super late, how he was friendly and accommodating, how he was like a ninja who quietly and efficiently got the job done, and how our pictures were delivered in the most thoughtful way--but I'm going to spare you all the details and just focus on what I think makes him unique. My (now) husband and I wanted to have an "UNPLUGGED" wedding ceremony for two reasons: (1) We got married outside in the middle of a gorgeous redwood grove and wanted our guests to be present in nature with us and (2) we wanted to see and feel everyone's emotions as the ceremony unfolded instead of looking at everyone through a screen. Alfred has a real talent for capturing both the beauty of nature and the subtleties of the many emotions we felt that day - it was perfect! When I look at our STUNNING pictures, I remember feeling inspired by the trees towering over all of us, I remember feeling hopeful for the future, and most importantly, I remember all the love. It is all bottled up, frozen in time, and ours to keep forever. Alfred, thank you for your energy and your passion. With love, Phoebe and Michael Keesey

Alfred volunteered to photograph our annual conference in 2016. He was professional, courteous and eager to learn about what we did so that his photographs would be all the more effective. In the end they were fantastic photos that we will use for social media as well as print. I would recommend Alfred to anyone looking for a high-quality professional photographer.

Alfred was an amazing photographer to work with for our engagement photos and wedding photos. He has such a beautiful artistic vision and doesn’t just take a picture he captures the moment and feel. We loved working with him and would absolutely recommend using him for your special day!

Stefani has done many photo shoots for me and my husband, and we are never disappointed. I especially loved our wedding photos that she did, as they were so gorgeous and captured us so well. She has an eye for picking out great locations/backdrops, knows how to edit photos to look amazing, and delivers a quick turn around time for final photos. She is not only an awesome photographer, but is such a lovely person to be around and work with, which is super important. I totally recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer!

We had a pleasure of having Rob to shoot our engagement photos (I regret I had already booked a wedding photographer and couldn't have Rob). He did a terrific job - a truly professional approach, he captures a moment and has an authentic atmosphere in his pictures.

He is a great talent and wonderful to work with.

Rob is an amazing photographer! He's very talented, extremely skilled, puts his heart into his work and knows his trade very well.

It is extremely comfortable and easy to work with him and you can always expect the best results. I cannot recommend him more!

Abby was amazing! We had our wedding at an outdoor location (state park in Sonoma County). She really maximized the potential that the images could have had in such a setting! Our wedding photos are absolutely stunning and memorable and I would work with her again in a heartbeat. She was very thorough ahead of time in making sure she had all of the necessary details to help her have a successful shoot. But most of all she is so enjoyable as a person! We had such fun with her and our guests and family commented on what a joy it was to have her as our photographer. She was timely, professional, fun, warm, and really able to capture some amazing moments that we can treasure for a lifetime!
