City Photos and Books is a great company, we had Rod Arroyo. He was very professional and took great pictures. He took so many pictures from different angels that I couldn't believe that the quality could have been done so good. He is very friendly and lets you know everything up front, no hidden costs... If you need a photographer for a wedding or any event I would highly recommend Rod Arroyo with City Photos and Books.. A 5 star rating, I would say!!!
