Thank you for the wonderful pictures you took of our family at Smoke Tree Ranch this past Thanksgiving. Everyone loved the results and many have used their individual family portraits for Christmas cards this year. It is rare when a photographer has a talent to capture 29 family members, ages 10 months to 97 years old all looking their best. You are a gifted photographer and we look forward to using you again next year.

Just a note to tell you how pleased we were with our family pictures! There are several great keepers in every grouping. You were so low key and going with the chaotic flow of ten children that I was not sure what the product would be like. But you managed to find the right microseconds and captured the light perfectly.

I contacted Gregg to take photos of our family and he did an amazing job! He secured a location with amazing light at a stunning estate for our photoshoot and really captured our personalities. We could not be happier with the photos, our location, or Gregg! It was truly a positive and memorable experience for our entire family. Thank you, Gregg...you are tops in our book!

We were so very happy with Gregg's excellent service. He was attentive, prompt, reasonably priced, and delightful to work with. He took extra time finding me the perfect background for each picture; he took extra shots to be sure all eyes were open and everyone could be seen; he followed through on requests for special group pictures and above all, his pictures turned out just wonderful and were delivered to us quickly. We recommend him highly.

I met Gregg in 2009 and he became the Palm Springs Chamber of Commerce's official photographer.  I found him to be easy to work with, creative, passionate about his work, and always looking for unique images.  When the "Forever Marilyn" sculpture was on it's way from Chicago to Palm Springs in May, 2011, Gregg took the initiative to meet the truck  carrying the sculpture in Barstow, CA. , follow it the remaining 125 miles to Palm Springs, and capture stunning photographs along the way.  His photographic portrayal of that journey, of the assembly of the sculpture in downtown Palm Springs, and all the activities and festivities since it was unveiled on May 24, 2011 has been remarkable.  Gregg is a delight to work with and I highly recommend him.

I have used Gregg for several years as a professional photographer to document the many car auctions and special events that our company produces. I have always been impressed by his ability to creatively capture the essence of the shows we produce.  I would highly recommend him for all types of photography.

Gregg Felsen is an excellent photographer and gets my highest recommendation.  He is talented, creative, consistent, enthusiastic, extremely hard-working and gets the job done, no matter how difficult the assignment might be. I have watched him work extremely well in very crowded meetings as well as on challenging outdoor locations.  I have never seen him flustered on a job and he always is extremely polite, but insistent on getting the pictures he needs.

He photographed Lulu California Bistro "before it was born" and followed it into its highly successful opening. He has taken wonderful pictures that we've been able to use to great advantage on our website, in promotional materials, and in our TV commercials.  From the overall architectural shots inside and out to the much more difficult food shots, Gregg has always come through with flying colors.

Equally as important, he immaculately keeps his appointments and provides the finished photography on or ahead of schedule. In an emergency, he has always come through for me.  His enthusiasm for his photography is contagious and is demonstrated in every job he works on. His professionalism also shows in all the work he has done. He is truly a pleasure to work with and, to repeat, Gregg gets my highest recommendation.

Gregg Felsen has been photographing events at the Palm Springs Air Museum for several years including the annual Palm Springs Air Museum Gala for the past six years.  In addition to Gregg being a pleasure to work with, his photography is exceptional and delivered back to the museum in a timely manner.  I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a first class professional event photographer.

Gregg Felsen is one of those photographers that you seem to see everywhere in the desert cities … from the fundraising galas of the Coachella Valley social season that are so important to area nonprofits … to Star dedications on the Palm Springs Walk of Stars … to City and Chamber of Commerce events … and everywhere in between.  It’s little wonder why you will often see his work on our website or Facebook page. He’s one of the best and Palm Springs is lucky to have his discerning eye behind the camera, capturing our important moments. The photographs he took for the 2013 “Dinner at My Place” series, hosted at a variety of locations by our generous donors, were spectacular. He has continued to take stunning photos for the event each year since 2013.

Gregg is a great photographer who we engage for all our parties and events. He gets the shots, then quickly provides them to us so within hours we can share his amazing photographs with our friends and guest. Gregg is a local treasure.

I have known Gregg Felsen and he has been doing photography for me personally and for Loving All Animals since 2008.  He did an amazing and thorough job documenting the historic Loving All Animals spaying & neutering clinic at Duroville in January of 2010 and he has been my photographer of choice since then.  He also created amazing photo books about both my Palm Desert and Lake Arrowhead homes.  Gregg always creatively captures the essence of whatever events he photographs and he is a pleasure to work with. Many of his lovely photographs are included on the Loving All Animals website.

I was one of the first people to meet Gregg when he moved to the Desert from Minneapolis. His Midwestern work ethic impressed me immediately and is one of the reasons I use him and refer him to my friends.  When Gregg photographs me for magazine stories, charity benefits, promotional material, or my personal work I am always pleased.  Photographs are forever and they must always depict the best in every individual.  Gregg always makes that happen.

In late 2012 Gregg Felsen approached our company with the idea of documenting the demolition of the buildings on the site of the long vacant Desert Fashion Plaza and the construction of the new buildings and Kimpton Hotel that will be built on the site over the next couple of years.  Gregg’s photos have been nothing short of spectacular and far more dramatic that we ever imagined.  At the site almost every day since mid-February 2013, Gregg has artistically captured every aspect of this important project.

Gregg Felsen has been our on-site photographer since 2010.  His photography beautifully portrays Casa Monte Vista on our website and he has captured the essence of many events held on the property.  He is highly creative, easy to work with, and I highly recommend him.

I have had the pleasure of working with Gregg for photos of our commercial buildings. I needed a variety of photos (day and night, with and without cars). Gregg was able to give me everything I needed and more. Even when I needed to get a couple of photos re-shot, he was able to get me what I needed in a timely manner. I am impressed at how Gregg can take a static item like a building and make it come alive in a photo. The quality of the images and his ability to beautifully capture features of the properties far exceeded my expectations.

I thoroughly appreciated working with Gregg Felsen Photography for my wedding. Gregg's attention to detail with each shot created beautiful photos. Every time I look at my wedding pictures, I remember different aspects of the day that thankfully were caught on camera. After the wedding is said and done there are only the photographs and memories that remain and Gregg Felsen bridged the gap between the two.

Gregg's photography took a magical day and captured every last moment of beauty, emotion, and energy from it. The custom photo book that he created artistically captured the essence and told the story of our special day. He provides the premium service that your wedding day deserves.
