Our top priority is to capture the emotion of your wedding or event in a uniquely artistic way, while contributing to the experience of your special day. Here’s what some of our clients are saying about Jose M Photography…

I am so glad that I hired Jose as the photographer for my daughter’s wedding. Not only are his prices fair, his work is outstanding. He went above and beyond my expectations by going the extra mile to make this day perfect. He came to rehearsal and stayed there the entire time to stage the pictures that he would be taking the day of the wedding. He scheduled the timing of all the events for the reception and coordinated that with all my vendors. He responded promptly to me whenever I had a question or concern and has such calm, welcoming personality. And of course, his pictures turned out amazing! I would definitely hire Jose again for any future photography need.

We couldn’t imagine our special day without Jose! Seeing so many photographers on the Wedding Wire website I happened to click on his profile and was drawn to his sense of style. We spoke to a few photographers on the phone but when we spoke to Jose we seemed to click over the phone. He was very friendly, professional and responded to us very promptly! He made it evident that this was our special day and that he wanted to help us our vision. When we met him for the first time his personality over the phone matched in person. He is very approachable, easy to work with, and took our opinions into consideration. Our engagement shoot with him went well and was fun. You could instantly tell his passion for what he does when he gets excited to share his ideas for different shots and how well the shots turned out frequently showing us right away what they looked like. When the big day arrived Jose was very professional and seemed to work well with the other vendors. Not at any time did we feel rushed or uncomfortable. At times you could tell he was having fun as well, taking so many pictures and excited to share his ideas for different shots. After the wedding it was nice to see some of the pictures he took on his website. In the end we are so happy we went with Jose for our special day. It was like he was one of the family. You will see he truly loves and enjoys what he does! We wish him all the best and success!

My now husband and I worked with Jose for our engagement shots and we were beyond thrilled with the process and the results! From start to finish Jose was easy to work with, easy to get a hold of, and was creative, helpful and easy-going during our shoot. We were also so pleased with the pictures! Our friends and family were very impressed and some have even used Jose’s services. Prior to the shoot Jose made recommendations of places for us to go based on who we are as a couple and what we enjoy doing together. He then made recommendations for props and poses for us to do. Admittedly we both were a little uncomfortable with taking pictures, but Jose made us feel at ease and offered suggestions for how to improve a shot or when to smile/where to look to enhance the image. He has a great eye, a creative approach to his shots, and an unbelievably friendly and comfortable nature that makes him fun to get along with. We had a great time taking the pictures, it was an experience we got to reflect on throughout our planning process. We would easily recommend working with Jose to anyone!

I would highly recommend Jose M Photography for your event. Jose is very talented, professional, friendly and easy going. My husband and I are very camera shy and he made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera so that our wedding pictures did not look awkward. Our wedding pictures look amazing and I couldn’t be any happier! Jose definitely exceeded our expectations!

Louraine + Chris | Long Beach, Hotel Maya

Working with Jose was a great experience. He truly understood how important it was to capture every aspect of our wedding day. We still regularly view our wedding album and vividly remember each moment because of Jose’s artistry. Having someone so knowledgeable in the wedding process really put us at ease, and he was able to control the wedding party and group photos like an orchestra conductor. Trusting Jose to capture our special day was one of the best wedding decisions we had made.

Monica + Alexander | Malibu Hills, Private Venue

Thank you so much for making our session so easy and fun! After a long day of painting, the last thing we wanted to do was stand in front of a camera and smile, but you made our shoot so much fun and effortless that we forgot we were tired. We will definitely recommend you to everyone we know!

Stephanie + John | Van Nuys, Private Venue
Thank you very much, Jose, for going above and beyond our expectations! We all sure had fun working with you! You made us feel relaxed and made us laugh and just be ourselves. We appreciate everything, and thanks for meeting us before the wedding and for the multiple phone calls to go over the wedding. It truely made a difference on the big day!

We highly recommend Jose Maestas to anyone who is looking for exceptional photos and a more relaxed and fun wedding.Shannon + Bryan | Oxnard, CA

Jose took our engagement pictures in Malibu in 2010 and we could not have been more happy with the outcome! He was so easy to work with regarding the logistics of setting up in a new place. The day of the pictures, he arrived early and got ideas for where to take the pictures. Jose, and his wife Erin, worked with us to get the shots we wanted even when I couldn’t verbalize what I was looking for! Good photographers are hard to find and Jose is definitely one of them! He made the whole process easy and I couldn’t be happier with the pictures! Next big event for us – I’m calling him!
