People love Venice Paparazzi!
"Venice Paparazzi is simply amazing. It’s a week after the event and I can’t stop raving about them to anyone who will listen.
From our initial contact, to the planning process, to the event, and even the post event follow-up, the experience was nothing short of extraordinary. They were friendly, professional, fun, patient (with all of my back and forth requests) and very detailed which a planner like myself can really appreciate. Not to mention, they were an absolute HIT at the event. I HIGHLY recommend them to add a “wow” factor to any event.
Thank you Venice Paparazzi for a seamless and memorable experience. Everyone is still enjoying the event from the online photos you posted. I look forward to working with you again in the future!"

You were, each of you, magnificent! I want you to know I will be talking about you and recommending you whole-heartedly whenever possible. You played a huge part in making the Kick-off the success it was and I thank you so very much - Venice Paparazzi is absolutely awesome."

"I have been dealing with Venice Paparazzi since it’s founding — so at least a decade. They have covered dozens of events I have attended, photographed my wedding, and Bill Rosendahl’s memorial service. They are awesome. Excellent photography, friendly and professional service, and exceptional people to boot!

"Alex, Edizen, and the whole Venice Paparazzi team is always a pleasure to work with! We hired them to photograph our advertising award show and as expected they did an amazing job. This wasn't the first year we've hired them and it definitely won't be our last. They captured our event perfectly and made sure everyone was having a good time with the photo booth area. They're always responsive, courteous, and accommodating and are extremely fast with their turnaround for photos. Highly recommended if you want photographers at your event. Thanks & see you at our next show!

"I've had the pleasure of working with Venice Paparazzi for approximately nine years. They have always presented themselves at events with the utmost professionalism and flexibility. The end work product they produce surpasses expectation. I'm always amazed how they position themselves to make sure every shot stands out. I began working with them on the Abbot Kinney Festival, which sees over 100,000 people, and they capture the event, our attendees and the nuances of the day beautifully. I've since hired them to work on multiple projects and I can say without a doubt, they know how to capture the essence of an event whether it's 100 people or 100,000.
I wholeheartedly recommend Venice Paparazzi."
Abbot Kinney Festival
I have worked with Edizen, Alex and the Venice Paparazzi team for at least 10 years. They have shot the Abbot Kinney Festival for years. This is a mile-long festival with 100,000+ attendees, 4 music stages, 350 artisan vendors, 3 beer gardens and an large kids zone.
Venice Paparazzi is also the photographer for the Abbot Kinney Holiday stroll/snow day. Again a one mile footprint with 2 snow hills for sledding, shoppers, Santa and more.
They were hired for dozens of events at the Runway Shopping Center in Playa Vista and many other events.
There is no other event photographer I would ever use. Their talent, skill and professionalism are above and beyond. Not only are they the best team at capturing the unique look and feel of each event, their turn around time, communication and value are incredible.
You will not regret hiring Venice Paparazzi. Please feel free to call me directly if you wish.

Alex and Edizen went WAY above and beyond for us on our wedding day! Our friends and family had an amazing time, telling us every step of the way how awesome our photographers were. We expected them to kick ass like I've seen them do in the past and on their website, but wow! The selection of pictures we got to go through the next day made my wife cry. From joy! They way they handled the crowd and directed groups, big and small, all while keeping a perfectly professional focus was more than we could have asked for. And the quality and crispness of our photos I couldn't say enough about! So to you Venice Paparazzi...
THANK YOU! WE LOVE YOU GUYS!!! WOOOOOO!!!!!

"We hired Venice Paparazzi for our Industry Party at SirReel Studios in Burbank, Ca. We were more than impressed with their customer service and quality photography. Prior to the event, Alex and Edizen promptly returned phone calls and emails hammering out all the fine details to make sure the event ran smoothly. They kept logistics and guest satisfaction at the top of their priority lists while planning for the event. During the event, they were friendly to all the guests and staff and made sure everyone felt like a VIP when they first arrived at the party. We were pleasantly surprised at how quickly they produced professional quality printed photos for all the guests to take home and were even able to attached our company logo to the photo."

"We were so thrilled to have chosen Venice Paparazzi as our event photographers for our Harvest Party. They arrived with enthusiasm, were efficient in their setup, and continued this theme throughout our event. They even managed to capture our entire company in a group photo...our first, and not an easy feat! I f you walk around our office now, you will see printed pictures proudly displayed on everyone's desk. Thank you Venice Paparazzi for contributing to our event! We look forward to hiring you for another one soon.
A picture is worth a thousand words, but some of those knockouts left us speechless! Thanks to Venice Paparazzi!
