What our clients have to say about us…
Manny brilliantly captured the dynamics of our family. A true talented and gifted photographer. I highly recommend Manny for your next family or business photo.
★★★★★ Manny made sure that everything was perfect. A real pro. He even came back when the weather wouldn’t cooperate and didn’t charge extra. Haven’t seen the pictures yet but I have a feeling they’ll be top shelf.
★★★★★ Manny is a true professional. His talent shows in his portraits. He’s the best!
★★★★★ We used Manny for our engagement and wedding in 2007 and the story that the portraits captured still jumps off the canvas today. In fact the slide show that he set to music of all of our photos has become our annual tradition to watch on our anniversary. We later also had portraits done with our daughter in 2009 and my husband had his professional portraits done as well. Every session we have had with Manny has produced memories that we cherish and still enjoy on our walls. I highly recommend Manny to capture and tell your story
★★★★★ What a great photographer! Very very pleased with all his work. My mom got a picture of her and I 26 years ago, and I wanted the same portrait done with my daughter, he did exactly what I wanted. It turned out great! I highly recommend Cruz to do anyone’s pictures! Thank u again Cruz!
★★★★★ My wife worked with Manny Cruz for some head shots this month and aside from getting some really awesome photos from him, my wife felt he was professional, focused and overall really easy to work with. This was probably the most important thing. He made my wife feel comfortable and relaxed and I think it showed in her pictures. Manny is a very seasoned photographer and I can tell he is very passionate about what he does. He made my wife experience so enjoyable and I won’t hesitate to call him for our next set of photos!
★★★★★ No question Mr. Cruz knows what he’s doing. He is such a talented artist. There is just a wonderful look to his portraits. I wouldn’t dare to trust anyone else with my portrait needs.
★★★★★ It was a completely enjoyable ( and pain free) experience getting my professional portraits done by Manny at Cruz Portrait Design. Not only does Manny put your at ease during the process, he goes about his work at an efficient pace. It was like I blinked and he was finished. Then I was able to view the work on a high definition screen and witness the impressive, artistic work he had performed. In no time at all, Manny had assisted me in choosing the two perfect pictures of the shoot, and I left knowing what wonderful pictures awaited me after a few touch-ups. There is a reason that Manny has been in business for well over 20 years. He is a undeviating professional with a true artistic eye. I highly recommend him for any or all of your photography needs.
★★★★★ Manny Cruz recently shot some promotional photos for me to use for my business and I absolutely loved how they turned out. He was on time, extremely professional and made me feel comfortable during the shoot. After he took the pictures, he brought me over to a couch to sit on while he posted the pics one by one on a large flat screen he worked from his computer. The next morning I received the chosen edited pictures in my email and am more than pleased with the end result. Without hesitation I would recommend Manny Cruz to anyone that needs professional pictures for whatever occasion. Not only does he do amazing work, but he is very nice and a pleasure to work with.
★★★★★ Manny Cruz has proven himself as a quality photographer who is able to meet all of our photography needs. These days, there are so many photographers who are new and don’t really know how to create a portrait in any situation… a portrait of my child is way too important for a photographer to “learn” during my session. It is nice to know I can trust Manny and know he will always deliver.
★★★★★ Manny truly know how to capture a beautiful portrait. My engagement photos are fantastic. He knows what lighting, setting, and pose combinations will translate into great photos! Highly recommended.
★★★★★ I’ve been working with Manny for several years. The portraits and wedding photos have always been creative and have reflected the true essence of my family. Having a portrait created can sometimes be a stressful event but with Cruz Portrait we had a blast and got great photos. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a photography studio.
★★★★★ Manny Cruz did a beautiful job capturing our wedding, our kid’s graduations and our family beach portraits. The only place to have your portraits done is Cruz Portrait Design because Manny is truly a genius with a camera!
★★★★★ Manny Cruz is simply the best, his work is worth every penny. He does all of our family portraits!
★★★★★ Manny is such an awesome photographer. He makes you feel comfortable and is willing to try out any idea for a photo you can come up with. The hardest part is narrowing down the photos, they were all great!
★★★★★ What a great job he did for my daughter and grand daughter! Thank u so much! We love the pictures so much! Highly recommend!
