When your amateur eye and pocket camera just won’t do, contact the best in the business to capture life as it happens. We’ve gathered some of the top pros in the area from wedding and family to baby and more. Check out five OC favorite photogs here.
Tony Florez Photography
If ‘I do’s’ are in the future, do check out Tony Florez. He has a fashion background that makes for gorgeous, dramatic, stunning photos. You can often find him shooting at The Ritz-Carlton Laguna Niguel as well as at The St. Regis Monarch Beach. You’ll also see his cover shots on Southern California magazines across all counties. He shoots many L.A. celebrities, yet remains very approachable, fun and great to work with.
A La Mode Photo
Heather Hart is renowned in the world of pregnancy photography, and she’s in our own OC backyard. She’s been featured by many of the major networks and in many national pregnancy magazines. Heather makes shoots effortless and beautiful with her attitude, eye for candid moments and she acts almost as a stylist with outfits that she brings for every belly.
For family photos, Mali Workman is talented, relaxed and a joy on location. She makes sessions fly by and has a great attitude for getting everyone together. Mali is about the moments and her images reflect that. If you’re in the Orange County area and need family shots to decorate your home or beautiful moments to forever remember, Mali is an OC family photog maven.
Kathryn LeBoye Photography
Babies are the cutest little things, but capturing that is hardly a snap. Kathryn LeBoye comes to every shoot with a fresh eye and passion to reflect the baby and parents she is photographing. She’s quite original also at creating sets and props for babies with petals, baskets and nature’s own beauty. Kathryn also just kicked off creative fusion of motion and stills—the next wave in photography. She’s one of the few photographers in Orange County to integrate video in her photography sessions.
Because we live in an Instagram age, where a smartphone app makes everyone think they’re a pro photographer, we thought we’d spotlight how it’s done right. iMoments on Instagram is OC’s own Bosh Images with nearly 10,000 followers. She’s got the eye and knows how to filter like few do. Check her out and you may be inspired to take new, amazing shots yourself.
