The photos look so amazing! I am so happy to have met you on this last trip. We would love to have you continue working with us to take our photos and I really look forward with working with you in the future. You are so amazing!
Thank you so much, Andrea! You are so quick and talented. These photos are beautiful! We look forward to working with you again.
Thank you for taking our Christmas pictures this year. You make taking pictures easy! You really connect with Cecilia and make it a nice experience!
Thank you so much! We love the pics as always!
My husband and I had the great pleasure of having Andrea and Taro as our wedding photographers! Andrea did an amazing job on making us feel comfortable for our engagement session, my bridal shower and most importantly our big day! Taro did an awesome job at being Andrea's second pair of eyes and capturing other wonderful angles. They make an awesome team!!
Andrea is very professional and detail orientated. She is very punctual and quick to respond back to e-mails and/or phone calls. Furthermore, Andrea is great at finding the perfect lighting and backdrops, but most importantly she is very open-minded to any of your ideas you may have.
As a matter of fact my family and I loved Andrea's work so much that my brothers and I surprised our parents with a family photo session with Andrea for their 37th anniversary. So, if you want a photographer who is very professional and can take your camera shyness away then Andrea is the way to go!
After researching and interviewing wedding photographers for months, my husband and I chose Andrea Takeoka Photography to capture our special day. The decision to work with Andrea was three-fold: (1) affordable wedding package, (2) Andrea's unique portfolio that reflected her passion for photographing people in emotional, loving moments, and (3) her baby girl and I share the same first name. It was meant to be.
Andrea is a professional in every sense of the word. She promptly responded to my e-mails and always welcomed our questions, concerns, and/or ideas. She has a sharp eye and shot a blend of candid and posed shots for our wedding album.
In addition to her amazing photography skills, Andrea was very warm and personable. What I loved most about working with Andrea was her ability to make my camera-shy husband and I feel comfortable and at ease.
We scheduled a two-hour session to take pictures at Laguna Hills Civic Center, Newport Beach and Balboa Island. Andrea never made us feel rushed even willing to continue shooting long after our allotted time to make sure we took all the pictures we wanted.
Thank you Andrea for your kindness, patience, generosity, and professionalism. And thank you for taking part in our wedding day as our photographer.
Andrea and Taro have been amazing to work with for our engagement session and pictures of our BIG day. They're professional, easy to work with, and both have an eye for capturing special moments. My wedding was a true DIY wedding and they ensured they captured all the special details and projects that we spent months creating.
The wedding day flies by and I am so happy I have beautiful pictures I can cherish for years to come!
Andrea and her partner Taro are one word: Awesome.
She worked with us on our engagement photos in the blistering CA heat in the middle of August. We had the privilege to get to know (and get comfortable) her and Taro. They both are very easy to be around, and really capture the real moments. I couldn't imagine NOT hiring her for our wedding day.
They shot our wedding! We (bridal party and bride and groom) had many mishaps, and were late, but Taro and Andrea kept shooting throughout the day. They were even kind enough to accompany us on the strip after midnight to catch a few shots under the lights. Their attention to detail is amazing!
Can't wait to use them again to document our future memories- and I highly recommend them to all!
Thank you for being the photographer in our wedding. You are very talented and creative. Thank you so much for going out of your way and taking us to different locations like the city hall and grapevine. The photos you took were exquisite; they really came out superb. The pictures you took are little treasure that will be cherished by us for a lifetime.
To say that I love them would be a big understatement. You captured his sweet personality and gave me something priceless.
