The Photography Specialist did my daughter's senior pictures and our family pictures as well. John is an amazing photographer who goes above and beyond to make the sessions fun to get the best shots. He was so flexible about location and did everything he could to make the experience a positive one. Wendy and John made us feel comfortable with the whole process. I will be using them for all of our photography needs!

Please tell John there is only one problem with the pictures...They are TOO GOOD!  I will never be able to choose just a few!!!!   Oh my goodness, we LOVE them.  Thank you. Thank you. Thank you!!

I love all of them, but I especially love my kids pictures!   Wow…

The Smith Family, Camp Pendleton

All we really wanted was the thumb drive, but we got much, much more. The photography team was prompt, professional and friendly, asking what we wanted the pictures to look like and who we wanted in them, they even took pictures at the Rehearsal dinner.  The engagement photos were ever so clever, with all the different poses and backgrounds.  The albums, slide show and DVD were amazing with all the detail that went into them.  This was one portion of the wedding planning that we never stressed about and we can go back and re-live this day over and over.....

Also, love the Holiday card!

Camino Real Playhouse had a wonderful experience with The Photography Specialist.  He took our headshots for Boeing Boeing and they turned out great! 

Beverly Blake, VP, CRP

John's beautiful photography captured our son in moments of tenderness, warmth, and joy. Patience and creativity were John's best assets during our photo shoot.  He has a true gift for capturing beauty in every shot he takes.  The pictures he took will always be cherished reminders of this special time in our lives.

TPS note: The image to the left was picked up by a company that provides photography supplies internationally; the image is now a permanent fixture in their marketing campaigns.

John’s portrait experience was evident from the beginning of the photo session by his quick assesment of our group. He engaged all of us during the four-generation portrait and put everyone at ease from the very start. We highly recommend the TPS team.

The Moran Family, Murrieta

We had a great experience.  John and Wendy were very thorough and patient.  We had a newborn and active three-year-old to photograph which I'm sure was challenging, but we never felt rushed.  We were so happy with how many great pictures we had to choose from!

I wanted to extend my sincerest thanks to you for your excellent work at Habitat for Humanity Inland Valley's 9th Annual Gold Tournament. Your photographs were wonderful and really captured the spirit of our tournament and we're thrilled to share them with our golfers and volunteers. We appreciate and thank you.

"I have six kids, two are babies, and boy, John was such a trooper.  The weather was very cold that day and John was still able to make it fun.  He and his assistant were so patient and wonderful with my kids.  The pictures are beautiful, I absolutely love them.  Thank you John!"

The Photography Specialist did a shoot of my Golden-Doodle for my Web Site and it turned out just awesome, great captures of my Maggie; you really showed her personality, style and zest for life and people. Thank you John!

Need a photographer? Check out TPS. The quality is obvious, but working with John is an experience in itself. John has taken hundreds of photos for our event "Taste of Temecula" and we have used these to promote future events. When we needed a presentation for the City Council 4 days later it was in our hands ready to present; it was amazing, John took a small group of photos and produced a video that brought our event to life right before our eyes. When you work with John it is not about him it is all about the photos. He works without notice behind the scenes but the photos are from every angle. We couldn't have made a better choice - check out our event photos on his web site I'm sure you'll agree.

We had an amazing time with John Tobin. We got amazing pregnancy pictures and had fun doing it. John Tobin is very professional and unique in his approach. Seeing the final pictures and video makes me want to watch it again and again. Thank you John for all your hard work and experience!

Carolina & Armando, Corona

The Photography Specialist made me look and feel like the professional I want to be.

It was such a blessing to be able to share my vision for my bookmarks with TPS and have him run with it. The final project incorporated the branding from my website and the image I wanted portrayed. I smile every time I give one to someone...all they can say is "Wow!"

Thank you, TPS, for helping me "wow" people.

Kelly Harrel, Author

Thank you John for the fabulous depiction of our parade. I love the angles of the shots, the different locations and the use of existing landscape elements or floats to frame some of the shots. The music and zoom and close up affects makes this a video that can be enjoyed many times and not be bored.

Nikki A., Carlsbad

It gets bigger and better each year. The video should be provided to Carlsbad for possible inclusion of parts of it when they produce their annual "State of the City" CD. Thanks

Joan S., Carlsbad

The Photography Specialists did an amazing job. The pictures turned out great and best of all...our family had a lot of fun. We highly recommend TPS.

Kirk and I had so much fun posing for was very relaxed and he wasn't pushy :)  He put us at ease and guided us towards natural poses. 

Trista S., Temecula

John really knows how to capture the mood and emotions of a new family. We had a very memorable experience and it was a lot of fun.
