7 Years of experience

We first started off as a one-man operation booking portrait sessions for college students who were in need of new photographs of themselves in the City of Pasadena, CA. After a few tips from a photography professor, the name of the website was changed again and a new target of clientele was added.


With that small change and some more business tips, the business began to grow once Festivals and other public/private Events was put into the menu. After a few years of doing portrait sessions and huge festivals alone, one thing was apparent: all of this work couldn't be done with just one person. That's when Pedro's partner and girlfriend, Mhaye (May) came into the picture. She was able to add some well-needed organization, fire, and an extra set of hands to the business. The name of the business changed once more to its current name to commemorate the equal work and extra effort that is put into the business by both partners.


We work with our clients to help them receive the best photo service possible from the first phone call/message to when they receive their photos. We will take the worry out of your shoulders and make sure you have a great experience guaranteed.

    Each photography session my family & I have had with Pedro have been professional, fun, friendly, filled with patience, and care. Pedro has been my photographer for 5 years now! We started with an amazing maternity shoot, where he went above and to capture amazing moments!


    As soon as I select my favorite pics, Pedro & Mhaye work diligently to return beautifully edited pictures in less than 3 days. You can't beat that!! I highly recommend them:)

    I've had the pleasure of working with Pedro and Mhaye on two separate photoshoots and honestly cannot praise this duo enough. The first time I met them was for a company headshot session. Pedro and Mhaye were great at making sure they were capturing our best angles, but also kept the photoshoot fun and lighthearted! Pedro kept the laughs rolling in while Mhaye would jump in and help pose/hold up lighting/make sure every last detail was perfectly in place for each photo. I was so impressed by the end results of the shoot that I immediately contacted them once I had my wedding date finalized because I KNEW I could trust them to capture my special day perfectly.


    For the aforementioned second photoshoot withe them, which was our wedding day, they arrived right on time and started shooting right away. Not going to lie, it was a nerve wracking day (plus it was the middle of summer and there was no AC at our venue...RIP) but they were awesome as always and made sure we got all the shots that we had discussed a few weeks beforehand. Our photos came out beautifully, and even my mom praised them afterward to me because they made her feel so comfortable during the photos and she knew we were in good hands with them.


    Pedro and Mhaye are not only extremely fun to work with, they are extremely professional and patient as well! I highly recommend them for any kind of headshot, event, or personal photoshoot you can think of. Can't wait to work with them again. Thanks Pedro and Mhaye!

    These two photographers are FANTASTIC! What I love about their work is how passionate they are about making the subject stand out. I'm pretty camera-shy and often feel awkward taking photos, but Pedro and Mhaye made me feel as comfortable as possible during the shoot while bringing out my confidence and happiness through different poses. Beyond the actual photoshoot, Pedro's editing skills are some of the most dynamic in the business. He has a special touch that makes movement come to life even in a still-life picture (especially hair!!!!). 10/10 would recommend!
