Captures Hearts & Souls

Thuan, Thuan, Thuan… nicest guy ever! And creative to boot.
Thuan Ton of Portrart Creations has shot twice now our annual Fall Fashion Show Dinner. He has a way of making all models and attendees feel at ease. Thuan has a prompt turnaround because he makes beautiful images a priority and he is passionate about his craft. He’ll even beat himself up if a shot isn’t perfect - that’s humility and a strive towards perfection. Feel free to contact us at (760) 434-1140 if you ever want to hear us rave more about Thuan and his photography.

Thuan was a delight to work with; very personable, highly experienced, flexible, and with an excellent eye! I am extremely happy with the photos he took for me for my new website. Thank you so much, Thuan!

5 stars

I am very happy to have my pictures taken with Thuan. He is very nice and extremely patient. I have always been scared of modeling/posing for pictures but he knows how to direct and did not get angry or annoyed when it took me a while to get it right. Definitely recommend him!

Certainly Recommended

Thuan was extremely friendly and very easy to work with. Great for inexperienced models, because he gave me tons of direction and advice which I needed! I'm sure he also would have backed off and just snapped pictures if I was more confident and knew what I was doing. Haha his photos turned out looking like professional portraits, and sent me a link to them less than a week after our shoot.

He's open to any ideas that the model brings, and had a great vibe to our shoot. I'd be happy to work with him again.

Thanks for the lovely pics!

I would recommend him very much.  Thank you very much for the pics. My daughter had fun taking the pics. Thanks

Thuan was the consummate professional. His attention to detail and knowledge of photography was apparent during our shoot. As a photographer myself, I know the importance of patience. During a shoot, a photographer has to adjust on the fly with knowing the correct settings for each shot individually. Thuan displayed this throughout our shoot, and he was very suggestive as to which poses and expressions would be appropriate. I would recommend him to anyone looking to have a photo shoot, I will use him again in the future.

Amazing Experience

Thuan's work is excellent. I am really pleased with how my photos turned out. Without a doubt I would work with him again.

Thank You

When I first saw Thuan's work I was impressed. Ive worked with many photographers over the years for various personal and business related reasons, but Thuan really has a rare gift for capturing people's essence on camera.
My wife and I hired him for our family photos not long after first seeing his work. I've got to tell you, we are absolutely thrilled with our pictures. We ordered a 30x20 canvas for our living room and coffee table book. Both are super high quality and we consider these to be precious family heirlooms! Totally worth the price. Thuan also was excellent directing us at the photoshoot. An overall awesome experience for me and my family.

Icons Remembered

Icons remembered through Thuan's Photography!   Thuan took a photo of my 14 year old son that was reminiscent of a cool "James Dean" look.  Thuan said Dean came to mind when  he was shooting the photos so he worked with the light and background.  Result?  My family was blown away by the fine photography.  Now my daughter wants her photo taken by Thuan at PortrArt Creations.  Can't wait to see his next art project!

Awesome shots. Great angles!

We were visiting San Diego and had Thuan take some photos of our 3 year old at the beach.  Needless to say, we were amazed by the results.  We walked away with great photos that were clear and crisp and captured looks and expressions that impressed my wife and I.  We especially loved the unique and creative angles/focal aspects that he employed.  Needless to say, the end results easily made the main part of our holiday card and we now have many more awesome pictures printed and stored away.

Love Our Photos!

My boyfriend and I wanted to get some nice couples pictures and we were really overwhelmed with all the different photography choices out there.  Luckily, a friend of ours highly recommended Portrarts Creations to us, so we looked at his amazing website, and decided to try it out.  We were SO glad we did!  Thuan was such a pleasure to work with - so professional but instantly put us at ease so felt really relaxed. He listened to what we wanted and had great ideas/suggestions (including location!) to give creativity and "life" to our shoot but still stayed true to what we were looking for.  We love all the pics and now have a very hard time deciding our choices - decisions,  decisions, decisions!!  If we decide to do the deed, absolutely we will come back to Thuan  again!  Thanks so much, Thuan, for making us look so beautiful :)

Great photography session!

Our family loved having Thuan take our photos! He was very enthusiastic, and made it fun for our young daughter. In addition, he was very flexible and accommodated what location we wanted, and most importantly, the photos turned out great! Overall, we would highly recommend him to anyone interested in a portrait session.

Thanks Thuan!

I definitely recommend Thuan!  We love our engagement photos. They turned out better than we could have imagined! He has a creative, modern touch and his editing skills are above and beyond most others in the industry. Definitely worth the time and expense.  It was a pleasure to work with him! We would absolutely hire him again for any future photo shoots. 

Thuan is a fantastic photographer!

Thuan was an absolutely amazing photographer to work with! We had family photos taken by him. We weren't sure where we wanted our photos taken, so we explained to him the type of photos that we wanted and he recommended a fantastic location! We scheduled an appointment with him and he was there early and well-prepared. He recommended different spots to take the photos and always had our comfort in mind, especially since our son is only 8 months old! He definitely had a great eye for the lighting and the scenery. The photos turned out looking fantastic and we could not be happier with his work!
