Well, everyone so far that has seen the book is soooo impressed. Poor Melissa hasn’t even seen it yet-ha! Thanks again, it is beautiful!

Hi Lonna,

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 great shots.
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 wedding ceremony!  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 business. 



"Hey Lonna,

We absolutely love the work you did, and the album turned out gorgeous, we all love it so much"



Heirloom Inn - Ione

The album looks beautiful. I am so excited about it.  Thank you
so much.



          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 veil
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 everything."

             "I would 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 effective photos.

            In compiling 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.

            The end 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.

            Hands down, she’s the best!"

  Must 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.



""I 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!!!"

"I love the pictures and this sitting may bankrupt us.  You caught expressions that we have seen a million times but never captured on film.  Thank you so much!"


Elk Grove, CA

   Doubletree Hotel - Sacramento "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 choice."

"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."
