Here are some real words, real testimonials from people that I have had the pleasure of working with. Nothing added, no fluff, no hype. Just real words from real people.
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
I just wanted to tell you again you have taken the best pictures of me I’ve ever seen in my life and I don’t ever feel like the person you made me feel like when I look at those photos. Thank you for that its a precious gift.
Ollllllll’ Gustavo!!! I told you I was awkward and weird before I even stepped in front of your camera and guess what?? I’m still really awkward and slightly weird, but you knew exactly what to do with it! Thank you for making me feel like a million dollars and not only giving me another motivator, but a chance to work with a pretty cool dude! (That’s you) You truly are a magician with that camera.
I initially met Gustavo at one of the body building shows I competed in and felt a great vibe from him from the beginning, he’s a hugger! He is a really down to earth guy that makes you feel comfortable on set. The first shoot I did with him took place in a gym and we had my own dub step music going on the speakers and everything just flowed and felt comfortable and natural. He has specific things he wants from a shoot, but other than that all of the movement is all you! On set, if you aren’t laughing and loose and having a good time, you probably shouldn’t shoot with Gustavo. He likes to have fun and keep things laid back, so make sure you bring your sense of humor!
My experience with him has been positive and I would definitely recommend him to anyone. I am actually shooting with him again in a couple of weeks and I can’t wait! His photos are proof of the work and experience he has. Hands down, he is bar none.
Thank you for the beautiful photos and book you made me last year!! A friend of mine did the same thing for her boyfriend with a different photographer and it was obvious she did not put in nearly the time and care you did. You truly are an artist! Thanks again Gustavo!
Having experience in front of the camera with Gustavo, I can truthfully say it is the most fun I’ve had in a while. Not only did I feel comfortable, but I also felt good about myself! Not to mention the good ab workout from all the laughing! But all of that aside, I have yet to find another photographer that produces photos that are even half way as good as Gustavo, and trust me I’m subscribed to tons of photographers pages. Not talking them down just simply stating that you will only get exceptional quality out of choosing Gustavo Alfaro Photography.
Trust me! It’ll change your life, and change the way you look at yourself in the mirror. I dare you to try it! Don’t worry, It’s Okay To Stare!

For anyone considering using the services of Gustavo, let me just say…He is an amazing photographer of incredible talent!!! He is now the official photographer of the Thompson Law Offices!!!

After meeting almost two years ago and working together several times, I’ve shot in 5 different states and worked with dozens of photographers, however no one has EVER made me feel as beautiful in front of a camera as you did. Only crazy person who wanted to shoot me without makeup, and thank you for that! So if anyone on this page is debating on working with Gustavo, I more than recommend it, he is the best of the best and will bring out the beauty that is inside.

I loved working with Gustavo! It was my first shoot EVER and he made me feel very comfortable. He was willing to meet with me before hand so I could get to know him a little bit and to talk about what I wanted. He did everything I wanted and the photos turned out GREAT!! I’d recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer to shoot with. You’ll never be disappointed, you’ll get what you asked for and more.
~Tara French (Client)
I have never been one to enjoy having her picture taken. That completely changed when I got to work with you. You were very professional but laid back enough to make me comfortable. Was the most fun I have ever had in front of a camera!! Thank you so much!
~Melissa Yates Davis (Client)
You were a pleasure to work with for my debut photoshoot. As a “go big or go home” kind of girl you did a fabulous job at making me feel comfortable, pretty, and even rather sexy all while remaining 100% professional. Thank you so much for an experience I shall not forget, I do hope to work with you again someday, and maybe even be a featured photo.
Kate Wessleman (Client)
Shooting with you was an enjoyable experience. I’ve been with far too many photographers who made me feel inadequate. I was comfortable and felt beautiful in front of your lens! Your prices are phenomenal for the quality work you do. God bless and you will be getting additional business from me!
~Erika Kelly (Client)
Gustavo you definitely know what your doing. I loved the photos. They turned out great. Im not the one that likes their picture taken but I really enjoyed working with you. You did so much extra great things to my photos including putting my before and after photos together. Thank you. I look forward to working with you again.
~Chris Swift (Client)
After shooting with you the first time…as soon as I walked out, I instantly wanted to shoot with you again. You are the best and my photos are amazing.
~Lauren Stephan (Client)
Gustavo you are an absolute pleasure to work with! Not only do you know exactly what you are doing, but you had examples of the style/poses/look I was going for and it ended up inspiring us both! You are creative and your work is unique. And most importantly, you are a professional! I appreciate you being so committed to the shoot and to getting the best picture possible. I have worked with amateurs and let me just say, you are far above and beyond that! You know what you are doing, you’re a perfectionist, and you have amazing experience with lighting setup. Sorry this is super long, but I cant say enough about how great my experience was at our shoot. I look forward to working with you again in the near future =)

Working with Gustavo Alfaro was one of the most rewarding, fun, and educating experiences of a life time. Not knowing what to expect, I am blown away with the attitude and performance he was able to bring out in my character.
Throughout our shooting process Gustavo portrayed such professionalism and provided nothing but positive direction my way. If anyone can get the “MONEY SHOT,” it is Gustavo!
My shoot with him was filled with encouragement, spontaneity, and laughter. Not only is he a talented and respected photographer, Gustavo is a ball of fun! Undoubtedly, if you want the best, look no further, Gustavo Alfaro is the man! He is an individual who truly cares about his clients and has a talent for seeing deeper than skin.
~Olivia Smith (Client)
Gustavo Alfaro…quite a name I know. Kind of sounds like a name a guy made up just because it would look good in a photography business. Haha
But, I assure you this guys is the real deal. No faking here. He’s as real as it gets inside and out, and it shows through his pictures.
G, as I like to call him, has a passion for this business. Also, an awesome knack and talent to go along with it.
He will, do everything in his power and circumstance to get you the best quality images, in a tasteful, edgy, and classy manor. He wouldn’t put that signature on the bottom of the picture if he didn’t.
If you ask me, I personally think, he has a new style out there. A style that is needed out there. He will not photoshop the crap out of your photos to make you look like someone you aren’t. He’s going to keep it real, keep you real, and make you look as beautiful as God made you.
Think of shooting with Gustavo as an investment. You are investing in some of the most beautiful images you will ever have of yourself. Photos that will speak to others of who you are as a person. Trust me, this guys got it. You won’t be disappointed.”

Gustavo… u do an amazing job. Having to put up with people like me is a job in its self.. :O) u r an amazing person and do an awesome Job!!
~Megan Harrod (Client)
My husband is Christopher Griffin and I have to say I cannot get enough of your photography it is truly beautiful. You really have an eye for what you do. Keep up the good work we will have you up to Louisville to do some photos of Cheyanne soon. Thanks!!
~Vernice Griffin (Client)
Where can I start? The first time I spoke to Gustavo, I wasn’t really interested in shooting with him, I was just more interested in talking one on one about art to someone who truly appreciates it and can obviously create beautiful works of art himself. After chatting for several hours I finally decided to shoot with him. I was skeptical because I had come across several “sketchy” photographers in the past. But, he immediately made me feel comfortable. After several hours of shooting I knew, this guy has it. He has the talent and vision of a REAL photographer. His use of lighting is outstanding. His minimal photoshopping is amazing. He does as little as possible to create a naturally beautiful photo and it’s clear when you look at his work. When I first spoke to Gustavo I thought, well here’s a guy I’ll probably never talk to after this; he gets this all the time and I’m just one of a few thousand. What I didn’t think I would get out of it was a friend for life and that’s truly what he has become to me. He has done everything in his power to help me further myself in my life as well as my career and I can honestly say I’ve never met another person like him.
To sum it all up, if you’re in the central KY area and you want amazing photos, amazing art, Gustavo is THE man.
~Courtney Collins (Client/Model)
G is ROCKIN! Not only does he take fan-crappin-tastic pictures, but he is genuine and very professional. He takes pride in his work and it shows through his wonderful photography. I’m so glad I had the privilege to work with Gustavo and look forward to hopefully working with him again sometime soon.
Gustavo doesn’t just take photos, he makes art!
~Erin Rhodes (Fitness model/Client)
I was one of the lucky ones to have the privilege to work with Gustavo. WHAT an extremely genuine person with an amazing eye behind the camera! He is the first and only photographer I have ever worked with. Seeing all the beautiful work he has done, I’m more than sure that ‘G ‘is the one I will remain to photograph with. I’ve yet to see a mediocre photo he has taken and I’m positive I never will. Expect nothing less than GORGEOUS WORK with this man.
~Angelia Gilbert (Client)
I have had the pleasure of working with Gustavo on a couple of occasions. When I first sat down with him to discuss my shoot, I had already seen examples of his work – his photographs speak for themselves. I knew he had a wonderful eye for his art. What I was not expecting was to meet such a good friend.
Gustavo has told me several times, “I don’t like to work with models…I like to work with people.” I believe this is the secret to his success. When he is behind his camera, he is always looking beyond a pretty face to try to capture a glimpse of your personality. He will take hundreds of pictures just to get that “aha!” moment where he realized that he has taken the perfect picture. His images capture the honesty, integrity and vulnerability of everyone that has stood in front of his lens. I also must mention his wicked sense of humor…I have laughed so hard at shoots I was practically in tears. Gustavo caught every moment – and he knows that those pictures are excellent blackmail material
For anyone that works with Gustavo - Get ready to have fun, first and foremost. Know that you are working with an incredibly professional photographer who will immediately put you at ease and make you feel like the most beautiful person he has ever photographed. Prepare to make a new friend. Last but not least, expect wonderful photographs. If you don’t believe me, take a look for yourself.
~Cheslea Tull (Client)
I’ve worked with Gustavo on several occasions and each one he has proven to be nothing but the utmost professional in all respects. He has a way of making the model feel comfortable and at home. The quality of his images and the time that he puts into each and every image keeps me wanting and waiting to see more. If you ever get the opportunity to work with him, you should take it. You’ll never be sorry and you’ll love the results!
~Dan Smith (Photographer)
Gustavo is a fabulous artist. I have worked with him on numerous occasions. Each time he has been dependable, personable and helpful. He puts forth 110with each client and image. He takes pleasure in making everyone feel comfortable and relaxed. He strives for perfection. At the end of a session, not only has he made a lifetime client but he has also made a friend. He uses his eye and talent to bring out the beauty in each and every model he works with, and when they leave from a session with him they feel comfortable and look forward to seeing the results. I would recommend Gustavo to all of my friends and family. He is an extraordinary photographer that I look up to and admire.
