I spent MONTHS looking for a photographer who actually knew the art of photography and didn't just pick up a digital camera at a garage sale to shoot my wedding. I am stunned by the other negative commenters because all you need to do is walk into his studio or go to his website to see that he has a long-term successful business with a client base that has been following him for years. The studio screams SUCESS...
Maybe Riva and anyone else that finds him and his photographers aren't a good match wants to pay garage sale prices for magazine style photos. Go back to the mall girls and get your photos done there. It looks like you wern't looking for style and class but cheap and crass. To anyone who wants FANTASTIC photos that look like they were shot for a Hollywood photo shoot call Cean One.

I am laughing at the comments above from Reva, I agree with Cindy from Long beach and Susan from Ventura, I'm a geek by nature, and I research the heck out of everything. We too me with Cean for our wedding which is coming up the December. Cean was amazingly professional, spent an hour and a half with us and really took the time answering my quesstions. We felt so confident in him that we didnt heasitate to book him, and did. He came up with a great package, as we are on a budget. I love his work, you will love his personality and I know for a fact we will love our photographs. My sad oppinion about Reva is it is clear that Reva doesnt exist and Im sure with all the name dropping from the other photography company, well we know who wrote this. There is no way any of the two comments are factual. Go see for your self. Cean and his studio is sublime.

Our entire experience with Cean and his crew were unbelievable. It is obvious that the previous two negative comments about Cean and CeanOne photographers are based upon events that did not happen.
After hours of extensive research, the clear choice for us was CeanOne. Not only did they make the best first impression with their website and previous work, they had competitive prices for the work and packages offered. Desiree spent lots of time with me on the phone just answering random questions, and stayed on the phone with me even after their studio had closed. While most vendors declined to meet without a wedding date, she was eager, friendly, and sincere. It was just that and the above and beyond that made me want to meet with them.
From there, our relationship with Cean and his crew just grew and grew! Although we had already taken our engagement photos, Cean offered to meet us in San Francisco where he spent hours with us, driving us around in a limo, taking our 2nd round of engagement photos, compliments of CeanOne Photography! What did we do to deserve that? Nothing. Come to find out, that’s just Cean, all heart.
The day of the wedding was amazing. Although Cean wasn’t there, Desiree and Paul did a wonderful job capturing moments that would otherwise have been forgotten. They both were amazing, professional, but so approachable. So many of our family members were so impressed that Desiree and Paul learned and used their names!
There are no words to describe how talented they truly are. There were so many photographs that looked so great that it took months to decide. Once we were ready, the layout of our wedding was put together and emailed to us while we were out of the country, just within a week. Desiree and Paul took the time out of their busy wedding season days to keep an open communication from half way across their world with us. What’s even more impressive is their impeccable attention to detail. Paul knew exactly what we would love and went for it in the layout of our upgraded Italian Wedding album, which we got today, which we LOVE!
This literally is the shortest possible thing I could write about them. Any shorter would be injustice to their very being.

Hi Cean-

I just wanted to say Thank You for doing such an awesome job on Sat! Not only did you and your crew make me feel comfortable, but my girls felt the same. You made it easy and didn't make us feel like we were under pressure or that we suck at taking photos (which I know I do)=) I cannot wait to see them! I told James that if he doesn't get the job and we stay in CA, we are getting all photos done by you! Give my Thanks to Paul and your son!=)

Thank You-

Hi Cean!
I just wanted to thank you again for working with us at the wedding.  You were awesome. (And Jay was nice, too.  Ha ha).  I keep thinking about my solo photo shoot before we added my party and it makes me smile.  I was so nervous after I put on my dress, but you made the shoot so fun, all my nerves went away.  I was more relaxed and had a smile on my face afterward.  You are amazing to work with.  I'm sure you hear it all the time, but I had to tell you as well.  You're the best.  I attached a picture that my (drunkard) step-mom took.  I told you you were fun to work with.
Can't wait to see the shots.  I'll touch base w/ you in a few weeks to see if my website is up yet.
Thanks again.
L, Casey

Hello Cean,
This is Glenda and I have not thank you yet for the wonderful service your provided us for our wedding. Thank you! We absolutely love the pictures!
We have received nothing but compliments. But, the compliments that amuse me the most are the one's comming from the men!:) The fact that they look through them all and then have comments on their favorites just makes me so glad that we made the right decision with you as our photographer. You're truly talented!
I can't wait to have another reason to hire you again.:)

I am Jonathan Boyd's fiancee. This evening, he shared the beautiful engagement pictures with me, which were done by Cean and his son only yesterday. I am astounded at the turnaround time of less than 24 hours, and am deeply appreciative of the consideration and kindness your company has showed by posting the pictures so promptly! We were very excited to see the photos--they're great, and they were lots of fun to make.

Thank you for sending us the link. Have a wonderful weekend!

It's hard to describe in words how wonderful Cean and Cean One Photography really are. They were an absolute dream to work with and a true blessing in our lives. After searching for photographers and being so irritated with how awful they all were, I stumbled into Cean's studio with low expectations and was absolutely blown away. The level of professionalism combined with Cean's laid back personality were a match made in heaven. His prices were very reasonable and totally gave some bang for your buck. I planned my wedding out of state and Cean was able to accommodate my every need effortlessly with the highest level of perfection. Our engagement session was the most fun I have ever had taking pictures because of Cean’s artistry and ability to catch moments on a camera. He is not someone who decided one day to pick up a camera and take pictures; he knows the art of photography.
For our wedding shoot, Cean had every detail worked out for me while I was out of state so the day of my wedding I had no worries whatsoever. Shooting with Cean made me feel so beautiful and so relaxed that it was like being with my best friend for a couple hours. Our wedding was an absolute dream and Cean and Paul were able to catch the emotion and fun of our day in every picture. His presence and patience with my family were stunning and his joy was felt through his creativity. As a bride, I had absolutely no concern that my pictures would be fabulous!
My book arrived last week along with my cds and I was literally stunned into tears. It had been upgraded to a beautiful Italian book for no reason but out of the sheer kindness of Cean and his awesome team. The book was full of stunning pictures that had been molded together into a book of memories unlike anything I have ever seen! The artistry of the book was gorgeous and really captured the day’s emotions…and COLOR!
If you are looking for an amazing photographer that is laid back with an uber spunky personality, Cean is your guy. I have recommended him to every one of my friends who are getting married because there is really nothing like the Cean One experience. I couldn’t be happier with every single experience I have had with them and look forward to using them in the future for all my events!

I LOVE CEAN ONE! I have to say the experience my (now Husband) and I had was remarkable. I cant say enough about the professionalism, talent, and attention to detail that they showed. Our images were some of the best that I have ever "seen".(Had to do it):) I highly recommend Cean One Photography. Jeremy and Harleene, you two are amazing. Chris, our Video is so beautiful, we cry all the time. Great shot of Joe's face when I came in.
You all are amazing. Cean, even though we didn't get to work with you personally, your team is amazing. Thanks for sitting with us and going over all the pics.
Thanks again,
Susan & Joe

Cean One owes us a refund for the lack of services they compromised to do as per court order. Buyer Beware!

We engaged them for our wedding Photography in November 2011. It took forever to get them to commit to a date for engagement shoot, then shot scenic photos in place of shooting my wife and I. When we tried to coordinate them for the actual wedding we could not get Cean or Jeremy to commit to our schedule but instead they tried to convince our wedding coordinator to arrange our event around their schedule as they were double booked that day and needed to leave our event early. When confronted they said - pay more and we'll help. So we fired them with less than 24 hours until our wedding and found a better photographer to come and save the day with amazing work.
