Captured Vision Photography

Reviews

Sonny Portacio, with Captured Vision Photography, recently produced some family pictures for me; of course grandmas never get to see their grand children often enough, right?

I now have beautiful, current, framed pictures that I can see every day; I love Sonny’s work and highly recommend him to you.

I had good experience with Sonny and Captured Vision Photography.  During the shoot he was patient, and worked well with young children.  His pictures were great and he did a beautiful job with the final product.  During the process of ordering, I had some computer issues with my computer and he worked with me in a patient, non-threatening manner.

I highly recommend this gifted photographer.

Sonny Portacio took many photos at my family reunion.....I am so used to seeing pictures that we "common, non-professional photographers" take -:). What a difference a "real" photographer makes!  I couldn't believe how sharp & clear the photos were and how the background, the sitting positions, etc. were all expertly handled.  If you want awesome memories of your event, whether big or small, use the services of Captured Vision Photography.....you won't regret your decision and you'll have a lifetime of beautiful memories.

I hired Sonny / Captured Vision Photography to serve as the photographer at the wedding of a young couple as my gift to the happy couple. It's hard to overstate how impressed I was with his service, professionalism, and temperment, all of which were outstanding. He was very organized, yet was very flexible in adapting on-the-fly to meet the needs of the wedding party; he also made excellent suggetions to improve and enhance the range of pictures that the bride had requested. And in the midst of all of this, he was able to mentor two budding high school age photographers (who were from the local youth group with which the bride/groom helped to lead), not only offering them pointers, but also leveraging them as an asset to help set up shots, work lighting, and take additional pictures that otherwise would not have been possible to obtain. Did I mention that the pictures were also fantastic? I'd recommend anyone to go to the Captured Vision web site to review Sonny's work, which is top notch. Overall, I'm very grateful to Sonny for helping to capture memories of this special day for my young friends who are starting their life together, and I can't emphasize enough how highly I would recommend his services.

Professional, analytical, thoughtful, creative,straightforward,fair, focused, and professional are words that describe Sonny of Captured Vision Photography. I had Sonny take Portraits and group photos of my family and my band, on site at different venues. From the minute he arrived on site he was working to setup shots using his skills and talents to frame the photograph's that we use for promotional purposes. Every band who is serious about promoting and advertising their services via social media and/or hard copy should seriously consider contacting Sonny.His work is top notch. His Professionalism and attention to detail was obvious through out both sessions and the work he did back at his studio with touch up and minor enhancement. I'm 5'5" and 50 yrs old and I'm proud to show these shot's to anyone.

Sonny came recommended to us by a friend and I am so happy that he and his wife were there to capture the special moments of our big day. He went above and beyond the duties I expected of him and acted extremely professional the entire time. He made sure to go through the shot list I gave him and made sure that I had everything I wanted. He was speedy in editing photos and even made a slideshow without me even asking. I was so impressed with everything!

My name is Myron Frame and I am the singer/frontman for the San Diego based rockin band "Myron and The Kyniptionz". The band needed new publicity pictures and Sonny Portacio took pictures while we were performing live on stage and also in an adjancent alley way in downtown San Diego. Sonny was professional and creative in recommending different lightings and settings. We are pleased with his photographic knowledge and skills.

We have used the finished pictures in various forms of publicity for our band as well as covers for two albums we have released on the internet. https://loudr.fm/search?q=Myron+and+The+Kyniptionz

Sonny is a very reliable photographer. He was able to accommodate me even though it was a last minute job. He drove all the way to Temecula for my shoot which shows the level of commitment. He was very prepositional and patient. I like all his pictures and will definitely work with him again.

Sonny works in a professional and efficient manner. He is straight-forward in his business practices and communicates options and timelines well to his clients. I had the opportunity of working with Sonny in one of his philanthropic endeavors where it was evident that he is passionate about his photography and creating deliverables that are polished and exceed expectations.

Sonny is our go-to guy for our band shots (Myron & The Kyniptionz). The color pops on every shot. He makes us feel at ease, even when he shoots the band while we are performing. We consider Sonny a "team member" and plug his photography services anytime a fan asks "who took your band photos?"

Sonny photographed my son, who needed new headshots for his theater and music auditions, plus updated headshots for his agent. Kids change so much that headshots can get quite expensive. Sonny's prices were very reasonable, and his turn around time was great. Sonny is mobile, so he met us at a convenient location for us. He was very easy to work with, and my son was very comfortable with Sonny's direction so he could get the best angle. Sonny provided us with excellent professional photos right away. He responded promptly to all communication and was very affordable. I will definitely use his services again, and I would recommend him for any photo shoot, whether the job is for an individual, a group, or a special event.

"We purchased photos from Sonny of our family reunion this summer including a large print of our group photo of 68 people.  The quality of the photos were superior and we were very pleased."
