They Constantly Produce Some Of The Best Jewelry Photography I’ve Ever Seen!

In addition to their technical skills, they always come up with exceptional creative solutions to both showcase the product as well as visually communicate its features. They consistently produce some of the best jewelry photographs I’ve ever seen. I wouldn’t consider using anyone else to shoot our products.” Top qualities: Great Results, Personable, On Time.

Top Notch Photography Team!

Over the past 20 years I have worked with countless photographers around the globe on various projects. There are few that stand out for the exceptional work they do. Fernando and Sonya have worked on several projects I have been involved with, from jewelry and accessories, consumer products and fashion. Their attention to detail, set design creativity, tasteful yet provocative lighting and styling techniques, and Sonya’s expert art direction have made them one of my favorite teams to work with. Beyond their exceptional photographic skills, Fernando and Sonya are extremely personable and patient, which goes a long way when you are under tight deadlines. They are also good listeners, but are not afraid to speak up and tell you why they have created the look they have and how some things just don’t work. This translates to a great finished product that everyone is happy with. I highly recommend Fernando and Sonya if you are looking for a top notch photography team.

Great Results, Personable, Good Value!

“As a relatively new client of Sonya and Sanchez Arias Photography, I’ve been absolutely thrilled with not only the image results but the entire working process with them as well. As a marketing and creative consultant to the small business community, I regularly face the budgetary challenge of educating my clients on the need and value of high quality product photography. Working with creative pros like Sonya and Fernando make that challenge much easier to navigate when the client can truly “see” the image quality that their investment represents. I’m absolutely looking forward to my next opportunity to work with them and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their talent to anyone!”

This happens through an amazing creative synergy of lighting, styling, art direction and post-production work as well as their unprecedented attention to detail. We are never disappointed with the results.

One Of The Most Creative Teams I Have Ever Come Across.

Sonya and Fernando are one of the most creative teams I have ever come across. They combine their technical expertise with artistry to create brilliant works of art with their photography, art direction and styling. They have been my exclusive jewelry photographers for many years and in one of our most recent projects, they designed, produced and printed a hard covered book of my entire collection. That book is a true masterpiece admired by my customers all over the world. I owe a great part of the success of my business to them. Thank you for making my creations come alive in your photography.
