Client Reviews

Writing this while still on a high after seeing the photos of my event. Was very concerned about how we would take family photos when we are a family of divorce. Jeff handled it all with great aplomb. Everything was so easy and everyone felt good and happy about it all. And the pictures!!! The pictures are stunning. Beyond anything I could have possibly wished for. So many perfect wonderful pics of all the moments from the event. Covered perfectly again and again and again. I don't know how to write enough good things. Nice people, made the event easy, and the pictures are perfect. Just amazing. - Sabrina, Culver City

Jeff is SO easy to work with, and his photos of our wedding are beautiful!

We mainly wanted candid shots, and he knew just what to do at what time to capture special moments. He took a few photos of the ceremony through a reflection; they are simple and artful.

My husband hates posed pictures, and Jeff made them so fun and quick that my husband looked at the posed photos later and said, "When were these taken? They look great!" His prices are very reasonable as well. I recommend him highly! - Mary, Culver City wedding

Jeff and Sam Graham spent the day with us during my daughter's Bat Mitzvah. They completely captured the essence of our daughter, our family and friends and the day, including the mood of the service and the fun party that followed. They seemed to know where to be and how to use the correct lighting for all situations. During the event, I felt confident that we chose the right team to take photographs. They were able to take great pictures of everyone there without being in the way. In addition to their expertise behind the camera and complete professionalism, Jeff and Sam are so nice! To top that off, we had the pictures in hand in less than one week after the party. I highly recommend Graham & Graham and would use them again without hesitation. - June, Culver City

According to the Temple Akiba website, the congregation was formed in 1952 with four Culver City families. "Today, with over 400+ families, our many programs are a testament to our community’s engagement with Judaism."

Akiba's mission "is to honor the traditions that have been sacred to this congregation as we move into an exciting future! ...Our rabbi, Zachary R. Shapiro, embraces the congregation and the community with open arms. Through his leadership and passion we have moved into the 21st century with ever expanding programs, musical services, world re-known lecturers and exceptional social and family events."

We consider it an honor to have the Rabbi request us to photograph the Akiba Confirmation class, which we have done at the conclusion of the class term now, for several years. Congrats class of 2017!
