What Clients Are Saying

Why trust your image to anyone else?

5 stars review icon

I needed a new headshot for LinkedIn and other websites. Hagop first took a “standard” lighting headshot, and I wasn’t thrilled because it looked like my other headshots: too round-faced when I smile. He changed the lighting to accommodate my head. Magic.

The new headshot was as good as I’m realistically ever going to look.

A real pro.

I am not an easy subject to photograph. My eyes close whenever the camera flashes and I can’t seem to stop my face from contorting in terribly unnatural ways in front of a camera.

Patient Headshot Photographer

Hagop was very patient and I’m pleased to say that I’m very happy with the results. I spent quite a bit of time looking for a photographer. I wanted one who didn’t take just the usual, serious headshots. Hagop’s wife, Ano, is a delight and extremely helpful. Besides being a stellar photography team, they are both very warm and welcoming.
If I need any photos taken in the future, I’ll be heading back to see Hagop.

Much like a film director, he helps to create his subject's expressions

5 stars review icon

I recently  spent a 2 hour session with this talented man. He draws from his many years of experience since his first interest as a teenager with a camera gifted to him by his father.
Hagop blends his skills in lighting, composition, and editing which he then fashions into the excellent image. He understands the structure of the face and it’s important role in defining one’s humanity.

Much Like A Film Director

5 stars review icon

Much like a film director, he helps to create his subject’s expressions to translate them it into the final pleasing result. He is an artist whose attention to detail allows him to attain near perfection. Don’t search for cheap headshots. What you will get from Hogop is truly valuable.

I sought a portrait photographer and found an artist. The attention to detail, the atmosphere of professionalism, and an artist's eye combined to make this an easy recommendation.

Excellent place to get professional headshots done. Hagop and wife pay close attention to every detail, helping touch up cosmetically before the photo shoots. Hagop does a great job helping explain background choices and positioning for the photo, and assisting with selecting a final photo. Unique is the opportunity to see the photo touched up in person and give input on how you would like the photo. Overall, a great experience and would recommend.

My highest recommendation for Hagop Photography where I recently got a new headshot (updating the one they also did several years ago). Hagop and his wife are professional, experienced and knowledgeable, not to mention tech savvy. They explained the process clearly and took time to make sure everything was ok with the presentation before we started (the right jacket, deal with flyaway hair, etc). Hagop's extensive experience in getting and choosing the right shot is evident and he is also very efficient. The editing is done immediately in the same space and through an interactive process, so I could choose the edits I liked. It was pretty effortless to get a shot I'm very happy with - I had dreaded being photographed, but left feeling energized by the process!

Hagop and Anu are absolutely wonderful and I love my business headshots! They were able to accommodate me on very short notice and I had the finished photos on the same day the photos were taken. At the session, they assisted with styling my outfit and listened to what I was looking to achieve in each headshot. The entire process was very collaborative and I appreciated Hagop's coaching throughout. It was wonderful to watch Hagop edit the pictures before my eyes and explain the edits he was making along the way. They did a phenomenal job and I highly recommend Hagop's Photography!

I was in need of a last-minute professional headshot photo for an application, and I'm so glad I found Hagop and Ano. They were able to accommodate my schedule on a short notice, and I couldn't have asked for a better photography session. They were very welcoming and helped me feel comfortable and confident during the session. Hagop walked me through various backdrops and the editing process. With his expertise, Hagop provided excellent advice and insight to help me choose a photo that I both liked and looked great in.
