    We we're very impressed with Maneul and his assistant, Larry. We gave them a photo list, but they also thought of great photo ideas. They were awesome to work with and we love our photos! Everyone tells us they look like they should be in a bridal magazine!! We are so happy with our photos, and plan on using Manuel when we need family photos in the future!!

    Manuel was able to accommodate us within few days of notice. He was able to capture the perfect moments in our wedding and delivered the copy of pictures in a personalized package within a 1 week. Superb service and highly recommended.

    No stress photography

    Photo Palma did an excellent job for us. Manuel made posing for pictures such a fun part of our day. We were instantly comfortable from the beginning of the hiring process to the delivery of the prints.

    I am so happy that we went with Photo Palma for our wedding photography! Manuel and his assistant did an amazing job! All of our pictures turned out to be absolutely beautiful.

    We found Photo Palma through a long search. When we met with him initially, he was extremely professional, helpful and flexible. There was not a question in our minds on whether to work with Manuel! He did a magnificent job at capturing our special day and making sure it was a very enjoyable experience. Simply wonderful!

    We chose Photo Palma after they came highly recommended from friends. We could not be happier with our choice to do so! They offer a wide range of package options, and were quick to respond to our inquiry. Manuel was so easy to work with-leading up to the wedding and on the day of. Our pictures are incredible! Manuel did a fantastic job of capturing the emotions of every memory.

    Manuel Crispin was a total professional in every respect, which was great. But the best part of his service is his AMAZING talent - our pictures are absolutely beautiful and a true reflection of the wonderful day we had. I would recommend Photo Palma to everyone. FANTASTIC!!!

    My experience with Photo Palma from beginning to end was nothing short of exceptional. To say my husband and I were pleased with our wedding photos is a total understatement. Manuel is a talented individual and very professional. He brought a sense of energy and excitement from the day we initially met him to our wedding day.

    Manuel was very professional. Our first meeting with him was great because he was prepared with samples of his work, knowledgeable of the packages and flexible with modifications. In addition, his finished product was phenomenal and we have and continue to receive numerous compliments. We would recommend him to capture any special occasion, especially a wedding. :)

    Photo Palma did a GREAT job at my wedding. Manuel was really super nice and as you can see from the pictures up here, very super talented. I can't recommend enough! He has a real eye for posing special & unique pictures, and a gift for catching happy moments as they happen in front of him.

    My original photograph left me 3 weeks before the wedding, luckily Manuel was available and understanding of our situation. He met with us many times to ease my nerves about getting a new photographer right before the wedding. He always repsonded quickly and was open to our suggestions as well as giving us his professional opinion. My pictures turned out better than I could ever have imagined. I would definetly suggest Photo Palma! Thanks Manuel

    Manuel was great!!!! We got amazing pictures from our Wedding day!!! I would absolutely recommend Photo Palma to anyone looking for wedding Photography!!! My one complaint was we were short on time so we didn't get as many fun couples pictures as I would have liked. Not Manuel's fault at all. With the time we had, Manuel did a wonderful job and we got a lot of great shots. Thanks Manuel!!!

    Simply outstanding! Do not look anywhere else! This is the photographer you want for your event! I looked for photographers for my wedding at wedding salons, searched the web and found no one that came anywhere close to Photo Palma's quality. To top it all, it was the best value by far. Having fabulous glamorous pictures can be affordable. Manuel not only took amazing pictures but also caught very precious moments, yet he was very discreet. The attention to details was very impressive. After seeing the pictures, some of our guests who could not make it to the wedding told us: "the photographer did a great job! The pictures are gorgeous. We feel like we were at the wedding!".

    Trying to find a good photographer with the package we wanted started out as a difficult endeavor. Our search was over however once we met Manuel, saw the quality of his work combined with finding him very easy to communicate with. Manuel did an absolutely fabulous job with our wedding photos and album. We highly recommend Photo Palma, and feel anyone will be more than satisfied with their photography work.

    We were thrilled with Photo Palma. I loved that they provided several different packages and prices to meet your needs. We opted for the dvd package and it was well worth it! We had our proofs just a few weeks after the wedding. Manuel was great to work with and told us we could add extra hours to the package up til the morning of the wedding! He was easy to communicate with and answered all of my questions. The pictures are great and are a beautiful momento from our day. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for an affordable yet high quality photographer.

    Photopalma was very professional and awesome at taking pictures! I saw some of his other weddings he had done--and knew he'd be perfect for mine! I now have amazing and beautiful wedding pictures that I can look at forever! They are such good quality and very creative! I have a pretty crazy family with a bunch of kids and photopalma photography knew how to calm everyone down in a professional way! Everyone said that he was so prefessional and a very good photographer. I can't wait to have kids and he'll definitely be taking my kid pictures! You get the best quality for the right price!

    Manuel was definitely the best choice for us in photography. Things to note: 1) he was early, 2) he brought an assistant even though we only contracted him alone, 3) he worked very well under some unexpected time constraints we faced, 4) he exhibited a lot of initiative in taking photos that were unexpected (the work of a true photojournalist!), and 5) he was full of great energy (which contributed to #4). Our photos are absolutely beautiful, and I'm extremely happy we had the opportunity to work with him.

    Photo Palma were great to work with! They were very flexible with setting up a time for our engagement session. They were great about capturing every moment of our special day, and prompt in returning the photos to us! And the pictures were WONDERFUL! They're pricing is also very reasonable! I would recommend Manuel and Chanele to anyone!

    We had unbelievable, friendly service with Photo Palma. Photos were posted only a few days after the wedding. He had great ideas and techniques and was receptive to client ideas and multiple locations. Showed excitement for taking pictures and talked with us about our interests. We loved the experience!
