“above and beyond!”

Rated 5.0 out 5.0 by Julie J Feb 2014

I am so grateful to you guys! Not only was our session fun, the ordering process was great and you guys went above and beyond with our prints. I received our package yesterday and I have no idea why or how but there was extras in there that I was definitely not expecting. My jaw actually dropped when I opened the package. The quality of the prints is so good, the photos look absolutely gorgeous! I can’t wait to hang them. Thank you times infinity! You guys are awesome! Thank you to Stuart, Adam and Kimberly!!!

“extremely friendly and easy to work with!”

Rated 5.0 out 5.0 by Rajina L April 4, 2014

We just finished a wonderful photo shoot with Stuart from Townsley Portraits this afternoon.
We chose to meet at the Santa Monica Pier in the hopes of getting some shots in the sand with the water in the background, but unfortunately it was way too windy and the sand was blowing everywhere.  Needless to say we were concerned about what we were going to do.
Stuart was quick to find alternative locations close by with great backgrounds and lighting.
He was extremely friendly and easy to work with.
Unlike other photographers we’ve shot with in the past, his directions for placement and posing of our family were clear and easy to follow and we never felt rushed at all.
It was clear that he’d worked with children before due to how well he interacted with my 3 year old.
He even stepped in to help brush my Wife’s hair when the “look” needed a little tweaking.
I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is interested in having great pictures taken by a true professional who is both friendly and capable of making the whole process feel easy and relaxed.

“Work speaks for itself!”

This is our 2nd time using Stuart Townsley as our photographer.  The photos of our family are truly classics!  The hardest part is selecting the ones we want (a good problem to have!) because we loved so many!  He is quick and specific and has an excellent eye which really works for us.  He is clearly seasoned and the work speaks for itself!!

“Easy to work with!”

Rated 5.0 out 5.0 by Rehana J April 2014

We had an amazing photo shoot at Douglas Park with Stuart. It was a family photo shoot session with our 4 year old daughter. Stuart did an amazing job in selecting the right spots at Douglas Park which would give our shots an amazing background. He was extremely easy to work with and hence made our first outdoor photo shoot experience a success!

“Fun Photo Session!”

Rated 5.0 out 5.0 by Tania S April 2014

My family and I had a photo session with Stuart a couple weeks ago and had a great time! He has a nice easy going personality and a sense of humor! Our girls were relaxed with him and didn’t feel awkward, which is usually the case when photos are taken.  He has a great eye for detail and works very fast!  If you want great pictures and a fun photo session that flows I would highly recommend him!!! :)

“stress free family shoot!”

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Musi A – Dec 3, 2013

Our photo shoot was a great experience! My husband, 5 month old and I met Stuart in the afternoon and the shoot exceeded my expectations. I was nervous that my baby will be fussy, it would take too long and we would all get stressed out.
I had to change my appointment a couple of times and Adam in the office was very helpful.
Stuart was great. He kept the baby entertained, was patient, pleasant and professional.  We were in pan pacific park, and took pictures in various areas. He was quick, and kept on snapping pictures the whole time. Highly recommend for a stress free family photo shoot!

“What more could I ask for?”

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Robert C – Aug 6, 2013

Had a great first experience during our photo shoot.  Stuart was prompt, professional and funny.  Had great ideas around Venice Beach. Really knew how to incorporate the space in to our pictures. Glad he knew the right spots to take us to.  Made an uncomfortable process very comfortable.
My fiance was happy.  What more could I ask for?

Would definitely call on Stuart again for photos in the future.

“wide variety of products and packages!”

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kim W – Nov 8, 2013

We just had our second session with Stuart. The last one was about 2 years ago. Once again, the shoot went great. Our kids followed his direction very well. Stuart is very easy to work and engaging with the children. They have a wide variety of products and packages available. Looking forward to our next session!

“We were thrilled!”

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 By GEORGETTE – Jan 21, 2010

Stuart recently took our family photographs and we were thrilled with the pictures he took. He was able to get photos of my 2 children smiling (they are 3 and 1) which isn’t easy. He remained calm and focused the entire time and even kept us entertained during the shoot. I highly recommend him if you are looking for an experienced, qualified, patient, creative and excellent photographer!

“You’d be crazy not to use him!”

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 By shelly – Jan 19, 2010

“There are not enough words to express the originality and love that Stuart puts into each and every photograph. Ive used Stuart for numerous photo shoots and each time the pictures are beyond creative and stunning. No matter how careful I try to be to not purchase every proof and blow them up- I fail. I end up with albums and individual portraits. He is that good!!! We cant get enough of him!!!!”

“How did he do that?”

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 By jk.kelsey – Jan 18, 2010

The pictures Stuart took of my family and me in my backyard were absolutely amazing! Somehow that ordinary setting became magical. He also paid attention to every detail…not just the smiles, but everyone’s hands, hair, clothes etc…all just right. Stuart put everyone at ease and we had a great time. Can’t wait to do it again!

“Wonderful Photographer”

Stuart Townsley did our engagement photos and they are beautiful! Stuart’s style of photography mixing portraits and photojournalism and his easy-going manner made our shoot so easy and fun! Thank you!

“Easy to work with”

Stuart Townsley photographed my son’s bar mitzvah. We were delighted with the results. He even took a very arty picture for the front of the invitation that all the guests commented on. It was gorgeous. He has great judgment, a lot of experience and was easy to work with.

“A Talented Eye”

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 By sweet smelling spice – Jan 20, 2010

Stuart has both a remarkable eye and the personality to brings out the life in all of his clients. His portraits are bar non outstanding and hold their strength amongst the best in the country. He has been shooting for many many years both here and abroad, which offers strength to his well rounded artistry. His talent in natural light is outstanding. As well, Stuart has a humorous take charge attitude that is highly organized in weddings with large families and extended members. Stuart is a solid shooter in all situations and delivers exceptional results in a manner that always seems effortless. Many times I will look over his shoulder into his frame, and hear myself sigh, “It is breathtaking Stuart.” We have shot more then a dozen weddings together.
