I highly recommend IMA foto for all your photography needs. Manny Salazar has a great eye for photography and you will be pleased with your results. I couldn't have asked for more! His prices were beyond reasonable for the quality he produced. He is highly professional, yet he shows the passion and excitement he has for photography. All in all, it was a great experience and I am more than happy with IMA foto.

Manny photographed my sister’s wedding three years ago and I knew then that when my day came he would be my first choice. Thank goodness Manny was available for my wedding day. My wedding was just a few weeks ago and when we arrived from our honeymoon in Cozumel, my photos were waiting for me in our mail box and what a beautiful cover they came in, I was not expecting that. I already made my album picks and I cannot wait until the album is delivered.

Did I mention how much we loved our photos! I cannot recommend Manny enough! My cousin just got engaged, I think we will likely be seeing Manny again come next year.

I love love LOVE my photos. What more can I say, my wedding was small, simple, and apparently more elegant than I thought because the photos shocked me on how beautiful everything was. Of course everything flew by and I thought with so many things going wrong, that in the end it was not going to look like what I envisioned. In the end the wedding turn out so fun and amazing.

I got married last November, the ceremony was at 6 PM, when I booked it the year before I had no idea it would be so so dark. But when the day came I was horrified thinking the photos were going to be pitch black. But Manny never lost his cool, I don't know how he did it but the pictures came out amazing! When my mama saw my photos, she told me that she could almost not believe the photos are from the same day because papa's photos looked nothing like Manny's. My papa is kind of a photo buff and my mama wanted me to save money by having papa take the photos. I wanted papa to relax and enjoy my day, I'm so glad a hired a true professional because papa would have been devastated if he alone took the photos. I highly recommend Manny, if he is out of your budget, ask him about setting up a payment plan, which is what I did.

We just received our DVD of photos that Manny took at our wedding and we LOVE them! Manny is great at taking candid shots that really convey people's emotions and the magical atmosphere of the day. His prices are extremely reasonable considering the level of quality he delivers. I recommend him highly!

Manny is an excellent and professional photographer. The picture quality is everything engagement and wedding photos should be and I was beyond satisfied with the outcome. He was a pleasure to work with and was always on time and flexibly with our schedules. I would definitely recommend him to every bride out there.

I just received my DVD yesterday and I just had to write a review for other brides to see.  I LOVED my photos, they were clean, simple, and elegant, just like me lol.  Seriously, Manny did an amazing job, what I love most about the photos is that they are artistic and not gimmicky.  Of all the recommended photographers we interviewed, I liked Manny best because his photos were artistic and they had great color.  Most other photographers had that funky instagram look, I like that look now, but I am not sure I will like it in the future.  I mean, when I visit my aunt’s house, she has a wedding photo embedded in a champagne glass, tackorama.  I will recommend Manny to all of my girlfriends and I highly recommend getting an engagement session, it helped my husband tremendously because he gets so stiff in front of the camera and strangers.  Come wedding day we felt like we knew Manny for years and it helped loosen my husband up :)

Manny did a marvelous job with our photos. I love the way he captured my wife in all the photos taken she truly looked like she modeled for a bridal magazine. He even made me feel comfortable and loosen me up as I am not the photogenic type. His work is out of this world and we were truly blessed to have had such a great photographer for our big day. I recommended Manny to anyone and everyone for his true professionalism and quality of work. Thanks again Manny!

I had the pleasure of working with Manny for my boudoir photos I did as a wedding gift for my husband. My friend used Manny for same type of photo-shoot when she got married, and highly recommend I use many too, after looking at her pictures I was sold!!! I was very nervous going in, since I was going to be in lingerie in front of another man, but Manny was completely professional, and made me feel very comfortable. Manny welcomed me to bring a friend or family member to help me feel more comfortable, which I did. He gave me pointers on what looks best, and what accessories to use as well. I ended up with so many pictures that I made a book for my husband from the photos. The pictures came out AMAZING!!!! My husband LOVED them and wanted to show the book to everyone, of course he couldn’t.. but he wanted to show me off so bad!! I was so sad that I had already booked a photographer for our wedding, and had already signed a contract, because after my photo-shoot I had with Manny I wanted him to do the wedding as well!!! I highly recommend using Manny as your photographer for any special events you have.. he is surely to impress !!!

I was very nervous going in, since I was going to be in lingerie in front of another man, but Manny was completely professional, and made me feel very comfortable. Manny welcomed me to bring a friend or family member to help me feel more comfortable, which I did. He gave me pointers on what looks best, and what accessories to use as well. I ended up with so many pictures that I made a book for my husband from the photos. The pictures came out AMAZING!!!! My husband LOVED them and wanted to show the book to everyone, of course he couldn’t.. but he wanted to show me off so bad!! I was so sad that I had already booked a photographer for our wedding, and had already signed a contract, because after my photo-shoot I had with Manny I wanted him to do the wedding as well!!! I highly recommend using Manny as your photographer for any special events you have.. he is surely to impress !!! Read less
