Painting II 001

From Our Clients

Luis did an amazing job with our banquet. He was funny, attentive, and knew how to get people to open up for photos. He was always in the right place at the right time, even though he had a lot of family photos we wanted to capture. Luis was always prepared for what was happening next. He did a great job scouting out the event location and had fantastic ideas for how to set things up. He was great with family and even little kids. I highly recommend you hit up Luis for your next event!

Lillian & Aaron  

Deciding to work with Luis and his team was one of the best decisions that my husband and I made in preparation for our wedding! We found Luis on Instagram and were impressed by how easy the scheduling and consultation process was. We ultimately booked a prenuptial shoot and our wedding day pictures and video with Luis. He delivered everything he promised! Our family was very comfortable in the process as well. We now have many beautiful portraits of ourselves and our guests from this lovely time. Thank you Luis and Team!

Working with Luis was delightful from start to finish. Luis gave so much care and attention to my parents’ 50th anniversary. He offered preparation meetings to discuss the event, asked thorough questions and made sure he knew everything that was important to capture. At the event, Luis and Andrew were attentive and welcoming. They made sure all of the family photos we wanted were captured, they used the setting well for beautiful backgrounds, and they captured every detail of the party. We received our final photos quickly and they were beautifully edited and will be treasured memories for the whole family.

Dear Luis and Staff,
We had to let you know how very pleased we are with your photography, staff, and efficiency. We love the photos you took of our 50th Anniversary celebration on August 19th at Soquel Vineyards. We will definitely recommend your services to anyone.
Thank you again,

Lynn and Richard 

Caring and professional, Luis and his team make sure they capture just the right image you wish to cherish and/or share with the world. If a picture says a thousand words, Luis's pics are an encyclopedia!

Gary Nobile

Working with Luis was a terrific experience. He was extremely communicative, professional and turned out a well-done set of short films for our non-profit. Luis was able to weave a good story out of a less than stellar situation on the ground when he was filming a wellness clinic for unhoused people and pets.

Luis was a pleasure to work with, and has created material that has been well received in the areas I have used them in. His experience of working with skin tones of People of Color was a big factor in choosing them to work with.

His professionalism, beautiful work, and enthusiasm for his work are what made me want to work with Luis.

Luis put together a perfect short video highlighting a youth performance from the LGBTQ Youth Space. He was so helpful throughout the process. From meeting in advance to discuss the project, offering helpful suggestions and giving us options to quick followups throughout the editing and final steps.

Luis came highly recommended by a trusted friend and I could not be happier. I had some professional portraits taken for a website. Luis was professional, fast and a pleasure to deal with! I highly recommend Luis!

Richard Eichenbaum
Live Oak, Injury Law Group

Whenever my work requires any photography/media related expertise he is the first person we call. Luis is a flexible, fun, and professional person to work with. When we needed someone to live stream meetings we called Luis to see if he could do it. Luis did a marvelous job. His team is ready to take on any project you have.

Miguel S.

I have seen his work for years and admired it. I have used Luis for professional work photos and family photos which included a two-year-old and two dogs. Luis was terrific to work with both times and what impressed me, besides the outcome of great photos, is how much he pays attention to the little details. He gives great direction and makes sure the shot and you look good to the smallest details. I will definitely be hiring Luis again.

Raul Peralez & Family

We decided to hire Luis for our family portrait session because we have worked with him before and he is amazing. Professional and so good with kids and pets and all those who work with him on photo shoots are of the same caliber: excellent.

Luis' ability to capture both stills and video far exceeded my expectations. His professionalism and attention to detail without ever losing sight of the customer's needs are the type of qualities one looks for. He is both personable and a pleasure to work with.

Luis and crew are always creative, thoughtful and fun to work with. They have captured many moments at our events that help tell the story of who we are and what we do. And Luis will go way beyond what is expected to capture the perfect image. We love them.

Luis has been our family photographer for about 10years. We love his photos! They really have character and capture each moment perfectly! Also, we love our sessions with Luis as he is super charismatic and creative- it's not a job it's actually just a fun time together! We laugh so much as we experiment with different ideas and they end up turning out so good!
I highly recommend using Luis for all your photo needs. He has been our family photographer for many years and we couldn’t be happier. His work is super creative and his mastery of using light to make vibrant photos is astounding! Also, I guarantee you will have a fun time full of laughter during your photo shoot. Luis is not only a great photographer but also a very cool friend to have!

We worked with Luis Pedro Castillo Pictures for our engagement and wedding photos. And it was fantastic!
Luis and his team were very accommodating and there is nothing we can think of that could improve on.

Brittany & Emily

Luis took great photos of me while creatively using my office as the background.

LaDonna Silva, LMFT

Luis was professional and efficient from start to finish.

Our family has used Luis twice to photograph my father and my husbands funeral services. Not too many photographers can comfortably work in an environment so sad. Luis was excellent in these conditions. He was incredibly efficient and professional. He captured genuine moments and emotions that I am so grateful for. I can always have these pictures to look at to memorialize my loved ones.

Jenny S.

Fantastic work, thank you!

I am very pleased with the service and quality of work Luis Pedro Castillo Pictures provides. Luis is wonderful, yet very professional!

Victoria Bracha

Luis did the video of a presentation I did in March. Beforehand, he walked me through what to expect. The day of, he arrived in plenty of time to get things set up and helped me with the mics and all of the other details. I can say that Luis made the entire process stress free, and I was able to focus on my presentation and my audience. He is so great to work with, professional and just a really nice person.

Karen M.

Luis went above and beyond our expectations. He created breathtaking photos and encapsulated the best moments of our wedding! Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without Luis there to capture it all. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer, his work is truly amazing!

Luis has done two events for the Winchester Mystery House, and both have exceeded expectations. The photography was great and timely delivery.

My husband and I were so impressed with our engagement photography session with Luis Pedro Castillo Pictures! Luis professionally communicated to us all of the details before our photo shoot so we would know what to expect. The photography team was creative and engaging, which helped us to be at ease in front of the camera. We had so much fun dressing up and exploring different locations around San Francisco with the team. Their passion and dedication truly magnified our joy on that memorable day.
When we saw the first inspired image, it took our breath away! Luis' photos told a timeless and beautiful love story with a modern twist, and we were the main characters writing our own happy ending. We could not be more satisfied with the professional and personalized customer service we received from Luis Pedro Castillo Pictures.

Our video was a last minute add-in to an event with a really short time line. Luis was able to get it all done, portrayed our vision exceptionally and all within budget.

Kim Castaneda

Luis has a very keen eye for photo perspective which results in great photos that no one expects. I'd recommend him to anyone in need of special photography.

Dave Sienknecht

I approached Luis Pedro Castillo Pictures with a concept for a construction video set to a specific song. Luis helped me to work out a storyline to incorporate both a rewrite of the familiar song with actual on-site construction work. We spent one afternoon in the studio recording the soundtrack and another morning video recording on the mile long job site. Within a week, Luis Pedro Castillo Pictures presented me with a preliminary video that was so good that I did not have to do any revisions. His screenshots blended smoothly from one scene to another and still track with the music. My co-workers, friends, and family who watched this were truly amazed I had such talent. But I had to give all the credit to Luis and his staff. It was an experience beyond my expectations since I have never done this before. Luis guided me through with patience, care, and understanding. His ideas and editing were truly outstanding since this was not a normal project he usually does. I can't wait until I have another project so I can go back to Luis Pedro Castillo Pictures and get the same great production.

Alan H

Luis and his crew shot our engagement and wedding and we could not have been happier with the results and the entire process. He and his crew are very professional, friendly and masterful. They listen to customer's goals and can offer advice if asked. And the finished product, wow! I'd recommend Luis Pedro Castillo Pictures to anyone looking for artistic, beautiful, quality, event photography.

Ben C.

Our family is very happy with our pictures. They came out exactly as we had expected! Luis is a great photographer and he will make you at ease during the event. His playful and energetic character are great qualities to capture toddler's attention. Kids and adult, alike, really enjoyed having Luis as part of our memorable family event! KUDOS to Luis!

S. P.

My husband and I hired Luis to shoot our engagement and wedding and he and his staff did a wonderful job. Nobody was stressed out and our photos turned out beautifully! We also had our dog as part of both shoots and he was very accommodating and kind to our fur baby. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with Luis and his assistants and would highly recommend him for any of your photography needs. Thanks Luis! You're the best!

W. C.

I really appreciated that Luis genuinely took an interest in our son. I didn't feel like he had any agenda for what he thought was the best prop... if Roman wasn't into it, Luis switched gears. He really let Romi lead the shoot which allowed for amazing picture magic to happen!

Patricia Nishan

Luis captured our daughter beautifully during her first birthday party, as well as our family and friends. Thank you, Luis!

H. L.

When you sit down with Luis to talk about art, you can immediately see that he is passionate about his work. He radiates creative drive in a way that makes you feel all warm and fuzzy which is a great thing when you're about to have your photos taken. He pays attention to little details and doesn't bring that attitude I have seen in many other photographers to the party. He is very humble, funny, and has his heart in the right place. He has taken magazine cover ready photos from my wedding and our daughter's birthday, more than I know what to do with. You will love working with him.
