Testimonials- Santa Cruz - reija

I LOVED working with StudioR for my boudoir shoot! Reija was incredibly professional, made me feel comfortable immediately, and took gorgeous pictures. Going in to the shoot I had no idea what to expect, and I was blown away by the quality and beauty of the photos she returned to me. I kept repeating "oh my god, that's me?!" I highly recommend StudioR for any photography needs! - A.H. (via Yelp)

After reviewing numerous photo galleries from local photographers, I decided that Reija seemed to have the eye and the feeling I was seeking. Still, until I met her, I couldn't be sure. I'm rather self-conscious in photo shoots, and they rarely turn out well. Reija immediately put me at ease with her warmth and humor, and we soon had some of the best shots ever taken of me. She is a true professional, with a great eye for composition and color, yet she is very casual, relaxed, and friendly in her manner. She also had a very quick turnaround time, and great skills in editing the photos. I'll return to her for future work, and I recommend her without reservation. -- John Mizelle (via Google)

What a class act! Rejia had my 366 DAY old granddaughter feeling comfortable and actually posing for the pictures. Beautiful proofs and photos and prompt service. Great value.--Tom (via Yahoo)

I am SO thrilled with Reija at Studio R. The first time I called her she made me feel comfortable and like she was excited to work with me. I have been wanting family photos for the LONGEST time that made me aka mom look like me. We try every year with no success. The photographers are always so busy focusing on the kids in family shots that moms go by the wayside and we want to look good when we have finally had the time to do something with ourselves. We want proof dang it :-). I trucked my family in for our appt and Reija had toys and was so patient and warm with my children. She would tell me when I looked good, probe to see what angles I liked, didn't like, and was genuinely invested in making sure I was happy with them and felt beautiful. She is magic with photo-shop and here we are mid October and for the first time in I don't know when I am SOOO excited to send out family Christmas cards and for the first time in years it won't just be a pic of the kids. Let me add this, I don't like having pics done, I am picky about myself, hard to photograph, and I have already set my sights on a shoot of just me AND family pics again in the spring/summer. I guess taking photos can be fun! I can't wait to get my disc in the mail and Studio R's prices are very reasonable too! Don't overlook this business you won't be disappointed!   -- OpinionatedB (via Yelp)

Reija is an amazing photographer. She made me feel comfortable extremely fast and was very versatile in her shots. She was creative and fun, and I absolutely love the final photographs. The pricing is EXCELLENT! Her studio is also very homey and quaint. I will recommend her to my friends or family or anyone who need professional photography. She was very prompt, professional, and understanding of all of my needs. -- Mandy T (via Google)

I had a wonderful experience doing my boudoir photo shoot with Reija! I wasn't sure what to expect, but Reija was warm, bubbly, and made me feel SO comfortable! The quality of the pictures was wonderful- she did a great job giving me direction, capturing the moment, and really listening to what I was looking for. I was so impressed with how well the photos turned, and how quickly she was to respond to any and all inquiries, and got the proofs to me SO quickly. The studio was cute, cozy, and had a bunch of different sets. Reija even went above and beyond by providing roses and rose petals to use in some of the shots! I would highly recommend Studio R! -Sarah S. Santa Cruz, CA (via Yelp)

I highly recommend Reija as a photographer.She was very quick to respond to my phone calls. She was very professional and warm hearted at the same time. With that said, it was easy for me to relax and display my inner beauty through my smile. She did her homework with my request and made it possible for my pregnancy photo visions to come true. I have had may compliments on my photos as well. I love her work! -- Malia (via Yahoo, 5/10/13)

I LOVED it! Reija is a wonderful photographer. I did a boudoir photography shoot and had some ideas in my head of what I wanted some of the pictures to look like and Reija brought them to life. Her pictures are amazing. I am a little shy, and Reija made me feel so comfortable during the shoot. She is so friendly and I had a blast working with her. Reija is very prompt and answered ally my questions before the shoot. The pics came out great, I couldn't even believe it was me. I can't wait to do another photo shoot with her!  --- Julie Seth (via Google)

Reija @ Studio R is AMAZING!!!!! I took the recommendation to have Reija shoot my boudoir photos and I am SO pleased with the outcome. Reija is kind, funny, makes you feel at ease, and has such an eye for photography - all making for gorgeous pictures!! I have never felt so beautiful in my life and I cannot wait to give my fiance the book of pictures on the morning of our wedding! BIG THANKS to Reija for being professional, down to earth, and very good with communication (emails/calls). Look at her portfolio- it speaks for itself :) --Shelly W.
