Of all the items on my wedding to do list, finding the right photographer was one of THE most important things for me. I wanted a photographer who can capture all those special moments perfectly, and naturally, and fit me and my husband's personality and style. I looked at a few photographers and some were too edgy for me, too contrived, or too stylized. I wanted someone who was more about bringing out the moment and the couple, as opposed to about merely just style, and Herman was the perfect person for that. He took our engagement pics in April 2014 and they came out absolutely amazing! My friends and family were very impressed as well. Herman displayed very good camera techniques and created some exquisite pictures that looked like a dream! He made the roses in the rose garden look like clouds surrounding my husband and I :). He then took our wedding pics in September 2014 and once again did an amazing job! My favorite pics were of the candid pics -- those moments were so special and so real. Our wedding portraits in the garden also came out amazing thanks to Herman's skills. Herman will not make you pose, there is no formula -- your pictures are yours truly and will not be the same as anyone else's. I've looked at some other photographers and in their website gallery ALL their pictures of every couple look the same, and follow the same formula, same poses, same backgrounds. But with Herman, if you look at his gallery, all his pictures are unique to each couple. That is what makes Herman stand out from the rest. If you want one of a kind photos that speak to your personality and relationship with your significant other, he is the person to go to.

It's hard to explain Herman's work. I think if you take a look at his work, it speaks for itself. It all started out when Herman was the photographer for one of our closest friends' wedding somehow he just became the go to person for all of our important events. He always capture the perfect moments and his style is just the right balance of modern and classic but very organic. He is a lifer with us until he decides not to shoot anymore.

Herman was introduced to us by a friend. He was the first vendor we hired. We are very happy with his professionalism during the process, on the big day, and after the wedding. When we met with Herman for the first time in his office in Monrovia, we instantly loved his work. He specializes in candid shots that show the relationships of people he photographed. He is also great at capturing the amazing backdrop and landscapes. Our wedding was on the beach, and we fell in love with all of his beach wedding pictures. Our pictures also turned out absolutely beautiful. We are so happy with his work.

On the wedding day, Herman and his assistant arrived on time for the getting-ready shots. Herman made my bridal party and parents felt very comfortable like he was one of our friends. No one felt awkward that there were actually at least 2 cameras in the room. Herman was familiar with our venue and was perfect at guiding us through our "first look" pictures. These photos are some of my favorites from the wedding, which reminded me of how we felt at that exact moment when we saw each other for the first time :) While we were waiting for the ceremony to begin, Herman presented me a small pack of almonds from his camera bag. My bridal party wanted to make sure I wouldn't become hungry before all the festivities (which required a lot of energy!), and Herman was the only one who remembered and asked! I felt great after snacking on a couple of raw almonds before saying " I do!"

I would definitely recommend Herman as your wedding photographer, especially if you have a beautiful venue. He takes stunning pictures, incorporating the background perfectly and showing relationships & emotions. "A picture is worth a thousand words!"

Herman was great throughout the whole process. He has been recommended to us by multiple friends. He was very professional and thorough. He is very easy to work with and he captures the best moments. I don't really like taking pictures but he made it so easy and natural. He customizes each session with each couple. He must have done a thousand weddings already, yet each of them seem different. Love his work!

My husband and I worked with Herman a couple of months ago for our beach wedding, and we really had a fantastic experience! It was just us and our kids, and Herman was able to capture a truly magical day for us with a combination of fun snapshots, candid moments, and posed portraits - all on the beach - working around a tide that was quickly coming in and two restless kids who couldn't stay out of the water. The end result was a collection of fun and beautiful photos that we will treasure for the rest of our lives. We've had several people comment that our photos look like they could have been straight out of a bridal magazine, and everyone comments on what a fantastic photographer we had!

There are so many wonderful things I can say about my experience with Herman that I don't know where to begin. My wedding was planned at the last minute (we didn't want to wait) and my biggest priority was finding an *excellent* photographer that shot in the style and quality that we wanted, with the flexibility we needed. Herman was our man! Not only did he offer us a perfect photography package for our tiny, private wedding; he was also able to squeeze in a last minute engagement shoot.

Beyond the fact that he shoots beautiful photography, Herman was also very attentive about shooting a few pictures in a specific style that I wanted. It was clear that his goal was to make sure we were totally happy with our pictures and he accomplished that and more. Herman was able to help my husband (who *hates* being in front of the camera) relax and smile during both shoots -- I couldn't believe it. An even better surprise was that he was capturing moments during our wedding day when we weren't even aware he was taking pictures -- and some of those moments are my favorites. We've only seen half the photos so far but the pictures are so wonderful that they bring a happy tear to my eye.

If you're looking for a high end photographer who shoots beautifully, is a pleasure to work with, AND aims to understand what you want out of your pictures... look no further. Call Herman!!!

Herman is simply one of the best and nicest photographers, and people, you will ever meet. He is very accommodating, but when left to his own devices he turns out wonderful work. The saying goes, "You get what you pay for"; with Herman, you definitely get that and more. Thanks, Herman, for photographing one of the most special moments in our lives!

Photography was the MOST important thing to me at our wedding. I wanted magazine worthy pictures, but couldn't bring myself to spend 6,000-8,000 on photographers that some of my friends were recommending to me. Herman is the most incredible value for the quality that he gives you. He was punctual, very professional, made people feel comfortable, but at the same time was very out of the way and unassuming. He got some absolutely magical photos. Best of all, he stuck to the very rigid schedule I had laid out and was constantly referring to it to make sure things were on track. I haven't yet received all of my pictures from the wedding, but he gave us a sneak peak and they are absolutely breath taking. All of my friends who are professional designers and art directors are blown away. Hire Herman fast before he blows up and you can't afford him anymore!!! : )
