    “We got Ms. Leiko Lorenzo for my daughter Angelica May's 8th birthday last May. Our budget was tight so her P2,500 package was perfect. It came with a free pre-event shoot exclusively offered to SP moms.  The shots came out great. Leiko is very accommodating, hardworking, mabait and very open to suggestions. On the day of my daughter’s party, I was already able to get the raw pictures (transferred to my laptop), and everything else was delivered in two weeks! I am a satisfied client!” - Shery Lyn Vargas, 28 years old, Human Resource Supervisor, Pasig City

    "I really love her work and this will be our third time with her. I first got to see Lei's work when I was scouting for photographers for my baby's 1st birthday, what caught my attention was her rate and quality. Her packages are very affordable and the quality is really nice. I texted her and got a reply within the day. On the day of the event, I didn't have to instruct her - she took a lot of really nice shots. She's very professional and kind. I got the pics and CD from her around 2 weeks after the event, and she even gave me 1 framed photo as a freebie. Ang tiyaga din niyang mag-picture kay baby kahit na super likot. She would chase my baby around and that's OK with her." - Jamie Rivera, 26 years old, Business Operations Analyst, Metro Manila
