We choose Joel to take our daughter's High School Senior pictures from a friend who highly recommended him. Joel never made my daughter and I feel rushed. He took his time and was so creative with his ideas and poses. Joel was not only professional he was personal like a family friend taking our very important pictures. We went to the High School photographer for yearbook pictures and by far there was no comparison to Joel. The high school photographer felt rushed and unfriendly. Even though we had made an appt with the High School photographer we felt like we were in an assembly line with 30 other kids and parents waiting. Joel dedicated our appt time to only us in the studio the entire time we were there. I have and will recommend Joel to all my friends and family. The only down side is Joel does such a great job with his pictures it makes it difficult to choose your favorites. I will definitely take my son to Joel for his Senior pictures in 3yrs. P. Munoz

My experience with Joel is both as a client and a former employee. With Joel, every portrait session is unique and is tailored specifically for you. He has wonderful insights about people and knows how to bring out the best in them. The finished portrait is a collaboration between Joel and you. In addition to being very skilled and professional, an artist par excellence who has won awards for his work, he is a truly kind and caring man with a delightful sense of humor. His wife Suzanne runs the office, and she will make sure you have everything you need for your portait session. You can put yourself in Joel's capable hands for your photography needs, and you will love the result!
