Hi, I'm Rob Murray's mom. The photos are fabulous!
I've really had a hard time deciding what to get as there are just so many
You really managed to capture that happy glow Alex and Rob had that day.
The wonderful photos arrived on Wednesday and we are delighted with them!
You did a great job on the book; all the backgrounds you chose really
enhance the photos.
We weren't expecting the photos on the cover so that was nice surprise.
We are really looking forward to showing the book to friends who couldn't
attend the wedding.

Our memorable experience with
you as our
wedding photographer began many months before the actual "big"
day. You took time to meet with us to discuss exactly what we needed on
our day, and you even helped us establish a much-needed timeline from the
bride-getting-ready phase of the day to the reception events. You helped
us keep everything as organized as possible, and it was a success.
Everything was accomplished as you had set out to do.
What my husband Fred and I
appreciated the most was the relaxed professionalism with which you
treated our large families for picture-taking. You made everyone feel
very comfortable, and every single person in our families commented on
what a nice person you are. I would imagine it to be challenging, even
difficult, to coordinate a family of 40+ members to take pictures, but you
made it look easy and even finished our pre-ceremony session ahead of
schedule. This made for a perfectly on-time
Shame on me for thinking that my wedding wouldn't start on time!
You captured the emotion of
the day with the candids that you and your photography assistants took.
When our photos were posted online, it was fun to experience the day all
over again--the smiles and laughter, the tears of joy. Thank you for
processing our families' orders for prints so promptly. Everyone was
very impressed with the finished photos--very soft and flawless looking.
Lonna, you are a true artist.
You have such an eye for detail, not only in the way you capture moments
in the photos you take, but in the way you put those moments together in
our storybook album. You balance color and black-and-white photos
together to create album pages that are very appealing to the eye and that
make you want to turn the page to see more! Everyone who has looked at
our album say they have never seen anything like it before. Fred and I
take pride in the uniqueness of our album pages. Thank you so much for
being one of our best wedding vendors.
I look forward to
recommending you and your work to others who would appreciate the
detail, professionalism, and passion with which you operate your

||Ponce's portraits did my
wedding 2 years ago.
The photos are gorgeous. The owner/photographer took more than enough photos
and we had such a good time taking them that morning with her.
She is relaxed and helpful and she even went so far as to make a turquoise
for me so that I could take the photos of my dreams.
Thank you Ponce's portraits.

|I had a wonderful
experience with Lonna and her team. She does beautiful photography and did
an excellent job on our wedding album! On the day of the wedding, her team
stayed with us, were patient and professional, for 7 hours! I would
recommend her to anyone.

"Ponce's Portraits (Lonna) was wonderful! We could
not be happier with the entire experience in working with Lonna, from the
engagement photos, through the rehearsal, wedding day, and, of course, the
finish product. Lonna was very easy going with us yet very professional and
had the expert eye and idea to know what would work. She was very responsive
to our questions and concerns. Besides the memories, photos are one of keys
that are left to remind us of our special day and Lonna did above and beyond
what we expected. With so much to worry about on wedding planning, the
photos was one area we did not have to worry about.
We met Lonna at a wedding fair and were impressed with her samples,
personality, and the great price. After careful screening, we narrowed our
search down to 6 photographers. After critical comparison, we found Lonna to
be best value across the board in terms of value, quality of photos,
imagination and creativity, and personality. Our guests raved on the quality
of the photos and how nice Lonna is. The proofs were reviewed on the
internet so we could send the page to all of our guests and friends. My wife
currently lives in Hong Kong and I live in Sacramento. Having access to the
proofs on line was wonderful because that allowed us to review them while
talking on the phone. She gets an A++++ rating from us. Thank you Lonna for

like to recommend Lonna Ponce as an excellent wedding photographer. Besides
offering a variety of packages and albums to choose from, Lonna was
accessible before, during and after the event to ensure our satisfaction.
On the day
of our wedding, Lonna arrived early to photograph the wedding party. She
stayed with us for the entire day, working with the light, the wedding’s
setting, and the personalities of the guests to create the most natural and
the photos for our album, we were able to access the photos over the
internet to choose our favorites. Lonna then used her artistic judgment to
combine our choices into an album which reflected our special day.
result was an album which will be cherished for a lifetime. The digital
images without matting, the variety of color, black & white, and sepia
photos, and both candid and posed shots work together into a very modern,
professional, yet personal documentation of our wedding.
she’s the best!"

pass along my compliments for what a fabulous job you did. I am a cake
decorator and wedding musician (flute) so I go to lots of weddings and have
seen many photographers run the show, you were so unobtrusive and polite,
very professional. Was shocked to see pictures of Jim and Amy during the
ceremony from over the ministers shoulder, never saw you-- WOW! Also at the
hospital most of my fellow nurses are my age and all of our kids are
getting married and one day at the desk I started the slide show of the
wedding. It really drew a crowd and everyone marveled at the artistry of
your work! Great Job, thanks so much!
I just opened up the pictures this evening, Sat. and all I can say is
WOW!!!. You are going to make it very difficult to make a decision. You
really captured our little one beautifully.
was finally able to view them last night and they are BEAUTIFUL Lonna!! By
the time I got to the last page I had tears rolling down my face!!!"

"Ponce's Portraits is the Bomb! The
individual(s) @ Ponce's are very polite, and are very knowledgeable about
the pre wedding jitters. They take the time to understand what it is that
you (as the customer) wants from your photo shoot. The people here are able
to see certain photos that you may not have thought of, and the pictures
come out great. When taking Ponce photos, you know that you made the right

"Lonna has done a wonderful job both times that I've worked
with her to take photos of my three daughters. She has a relaxed approach
that puts toddlers at ease. We have had photo sessions both offsite and in
her studio and we were thrilled with the results each time. I highly
recommend Ponce's Portraits to anyone who is looking for a stress-free
experience at a very cost-effective price."
