Excellent attention to detail and so professional
There truly aren't enough great things to say about Manuel and his wife Melissa. They are so professional and incredibly easy to work with. They make you feel so comfortable, confident, and relaxed when working with you. I hired Manuel for our wedding after I saw a sample picture he had up at our venue. We knew we had to have him as our photographer. He knows how to capture the right lighting (no color is washed out), the right moments, and has such a creative eye for capturing the PERFECT epic picture for your event. Manuel and his wife truly captured the spirit and joy of our special day. We have so many stunning pictures to choose from to print now. I can't wait to hire him again to take more photos for us! Worth every penny!

We absolutely love our photos! I am so happy that after meeting with several photographers we decided to go with Manuel. He did an amazing job capturing all the important moments of our special day. We have beautiful pictures to look back at and that we will be able to show our future kids. He and Melissa cover every angle. She was super attentive in making sure every hair was in place and even made sure my makeup was not a mess after the happy tears. Lol
He has an incredible eye and took some Candid pictures that made me so happy that I just about cried with emotion. Extremely happy with our decision. Love love our photos.

Love love love our engagement pictures! Amazing! Best decision we could have made. Manuel and Melissa make a great team. It was pleasure getting to work them. Thank you so much!!
I work with a lot of photographers. Very few take their craft more serious that Manuel. he is not only a creative perfectionist. He and his team have a genuine interest in his clients final product. He is professional, flexible and so easy to work with....When i see him on site..I get excited.
When I see Manuel Ortega walking up with his camera all i can say is this day will be memorable for the client. We work together great on the timeline making sure each main event is captured. Call him today!
Manuel Ortega Photography is great at what they do. I have had the privilege to work with them and it is always a treat to watch them with the couple. They are professional, prompt and very easy going. We have fun together while we work and they really know how to make the clients feel comfortable.
