"Thank you so much for Jackson's beautiful 3 month pics! They are so precious... you captured his expressions perfectly! :)"

"Chris was great to work with and we really enjoyed their company. Excellent communication. Very professional. And perhaps most importantly, Chris is a very talented photographers. They were PERFECT! I am so happy I found him! I look forward to working with him in the future!"

"You guys are seriously such a blessing. We live in Los Angeles and everyone keeps asking who in the area did our pictures. They say that the pictures look like they come from a magazine! You made us feel comfortable and relaxed through the whole weekend, which is exactly how you should feel. Thanks again for everything you did!" - Lauren R

"I have tears in my eyes and a big smile on my face after looking at my session. Thank you so much for the wonderful moments that you captured!!! I love them!"

"Chris did an amazing job photographing our wedding. Not only were the resulting photos amazing, we had a fun time taking them! He makes you feel super laid back and comfortable. Also, you never have to worry about poses, venue photos, whether or not the groom has forgotten that he is wearing his sunglasses in all the photos (he will kindly ask him do some with his regular spectacles) ...or anything at all! Chris takes care of it. We are really glad that we chose Velvet Lotus to shoot our wedding. Trust me, you will be too!"
