Manny was wonderful! He was so easy to work with, he gave us a great advice on scheduling, and of course the pictures were amazing! Manny gave us a military discount, unlike some vendors, Manny went far and beyond our expectations. I will be recommending IMA Foto to all of my friends.

Wow! This is an overdue review! I thought I already wrote it. Manny takes some beautiful photos! My husband and I were impressed with our photos. Manny is great to work with -- he worked with us in having our engagement shots taken in Los Angeles County Museum of Art and Pasadena City Hall. He really took his time to find some great hidden spots in Pasadena, unfortunately in LA it was tougher since it was so crowded, but he made it work the photos still came out wonderful! Our wedding photos were absolutely gorgeous as well. Manny had never worked at our venue (Martin Johnson House) but we was willing to meet with me before the wedding to plan our first look shots and other spots were we're be photographed. He also worked with us regarding a timeline for the day of. His brother was the second shooter and it was great having another person take different photos of the day. Manny was in my hotel room taking photos of me and my bridesmaids while his brother was with the groom and his groomsmen in their room. We waited about 4 weeks for photos and they came on a flash drive in a cute box with our photo on it. Also, Manny customized a package for us so it was nice having his flexibility with our budget. I definitely recommend Manny for beautiful photos at a reasonable price.

I was not sure if I should write me review yet, you see I am not getting married until this August but I just took my engagement photos two days ago and I got them back this morning. They were phenomenal! I kept postponing the shoot because my fiancé’s job kept interrupting our scheduled dates. Now we were in a rush to get our photos so we can send out the invitations in time. Manny delivered over 100 fully edited photos in just one day. We are not selfie people and don’t have too many photos of ourselves so I was a bit worried on how the engagement photos would come out. Now I am looking forward to our wedding photos more than ever!

Manny was an absolutely incredible photographer! He was extremely professional while, at the same time, very friendly and personable. He listened to our ideas and delivered exactly the kind of photos we both wanted.

He arrived early the day of the wedding to prepare for the rest of the occasion. During the ceremony and the reception, I barely noticed he was there. He was able to photograph beautiful pictures without interfering with our special moments. During the photographs between the ceremony and reception, Manny took many amazing pictures of our families. During the reception, he was able to capture the feeling and fun atmosphere of our night.

We could not be more happy with a wedding photographer. Manny was absolutely fantastic; my husband and I would both recommend him to anyone in a heartbeat.

I was very happy with all of my photos. I highly recommend IMA FOTO to anyone that wants great posed photos, but still want a documentary like feeling of the events. He really went out of his way to get great photos without disturbing my guests.

I loved my wedding photos and so did all of my friends. In fact, my best friend is getting married tomorrow and Manny will be there because she like his work so much. That reminded me I needed to write a review. I wholeheartedly recommend Manny to any bride that cares to have beautiful photos and cannot afford a 15k+ celebrity photographer. I am infamous scrapbooker and I only wanted my digital pictures, Manny understood this and never pressured me to buy albums or other things that were out of my budget, for that I am grateful and even more grateful after I received my amazing photos in a special cover, that was an unexpected surprise.

I first discovered Manny when I was a bridesmaid in San Diego last year. I hardly noticed him while he worked but what amazing photos he took, Manny is based out of southern California, so I was a bit worried about paying for travel expenses, so I looked for good local photographers. The thing is I am new to Seattle, so I asked friends for referrals and no one recommended one, so I thought it best to go with someone I knew was good instead of taking a stab in the dark and hoping I got lucky.
I am so glad I went with Manny, he was so sweet, my luck he used to live in Seattle and knowing we were near the budget limit, he only charged us for the air travel because he stayed at a friend’s house instead of a hotel. The photos were wonderful, we got them in less than two weeks, and the album just came in a few days ago and OMG! It is beautiful!

I am super happy with my photos. I was trying to keep my costs down because we are buying a home, but of all the vendors I could afford, Manny is the only one that exceeded my expectations. My package did not include an album, but my mom was so thrilled with the photos, that she insisted on buying one on my behalf, and of course, Manny being the superstar that he is gave my mom a deal on that. I cannot recommend Manny and his assistant Gabe enough.

I have not received all of my photos yet but I did ask Manny to send me some photos so I could share with my dad who is deployed and was not able to attend my wedding. I love what I have seen so far and cannot wait until I get them all. I did struggle rating the value, because imafoto was out of my budget, but I knew after our meeting that I had to hire Manny, and from what I've seen I know friends that payed far more than me and we're not happy. So maybe a 4.5 for brides on a tight budget and 5 for those with larger budgets.

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.
