Kind words from amazing people I have worked with:

Such a fun experience! Marcus took my senior pictures and I love them so much, he did such a great job!!

We recently used Marcus for senior pictures of my daughter. We live in Michigan but she really wanted her pictures taken in California because she plans to attend college there. From beginning to end the process was amazing. He was so professional and easy to work with. He met us at our rental house to review outfits and to have her hair and makeup done. We were able to shoot at a few different locations in Venice and at the Beach. We never felt rushed or stressed. The photos are everything we had hoped for. Thank you Marcus!

As Vice-Chairperson of the Distinguished Young Women of Los Angeles County Scholarship Program, it has been my pleasure to work with Marcus Hoffman during our past two events. His beautiful photos have been a tremendous asset as we share our program with educators, future participants and sponsors. Marcus captures the spirit of Distinguished Young Women in each and every photo he takes. We feel very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with such a wonderful photographer!

My experience with Marcus was amazing. Everything about the shoot was organized and thought-out, making it run very smoothly. The staff was extremely friendly, knowledgable, and professional. Marcus is a true pro, with great ideas and effortless execution. The rest of the team was really helpful, making sure all aspects of the photo were taken care of. The vibe was super positive and encouraging, and all of our locations around the South Bay were stunning. Overall it was a great experience that I will never forget. I highly recommend Marcus because the photos as well as the experience are one a kind.

Working with Marcus was a total experience for my teenage girls! It all began with incredible hair and make up! Marcus was very laid back but extremely professional making the girls feel comfortable in front of the camera. The turn around time was swift and I was so impressed with the quality of the photos. I continue to use Marcus, and my girls regularly go to Chelsea for their hair and make up

I have been working alongside People By Marcus Photography for a year now as a hair and makeup artist and loving it! The experience that Marcus gives the models is extraordinary. Marcus organizes everyone for you so you are set like a truly glamorous model throughout the day. He has a way of making you feel extremely comfortable and goes above and beyond to get the greatest shots you will love and want to show everyone you know.

Marcus shot a beautiful dance session with my daughter. He demonstrated a nice balance between allowing her to express her own creativity and pushing her artistically to capture stunning images. Marcus was very kind and easy-going, which made the experience genuinely enjoyable for my daughter. Our proofs arrived quickly and he was quick to respond to any questions I had. Our final shots are magnificent and we are thrilled we were able to work with him.

Did my senior pics with Marcus recently - and it felt like a fairy tale. He was attentive, creative, fun, and the finished product blew us away. Highly recommend him for ANY types of photos you need. He is definitely the best out there and really listens and takes the time and care to bring your vision to fruition! Thank you so much Marcus! Can’t wait til the next time around! You’ve made a client for life.

Marcus is amazing!!! We booked Marcus for my daughter’s senior photo shoot. We traveled from Las Vegas to have Marcus work his magic.

He was so easy to deal with from the moment that he called me back. I reached out via email requesting information from a few photographers in the area. Marcus was the most professional, courteous, and prompt. I will also add that we loved Marcus’ work the most.

It is extremely important to feel comfortable with your photographer and my daughter felt at ease with him. Their first meeting on the phone was great, Marcus has a very friendly personality. He was so personable the entire time and was extremely attentive.

My daughter and Marcus were able to communicate a few times prior to the photo shoot on wardrobe ideas.

Marcus knows what looks great on film and directed my daughter on posing and they all turned out great. We went to a few locations in the Venice Beach area and every photo turned out fabulous!

My daughter was so excited that her photos were beautiful. We love the Italian leather box with the matted photos-high quality, beautiful product. I love the photos, it was so hard to eliminate a few of them for the portfolio.

The entire experience was fantastic. I will certainly use Marcus again for my other 3 kids and I would love to utilize him for all my photo needs. He is just super talented and amazing.
