He was very personable and east to work with.Mar 13, 2018Verified
Gabe was very personable both on the phone and on the day of our wedding. He was quick to respond to any inquiries, suggested places for the ceremony/shoot, and got the digital prints to us within the time quoted. Most important, he made us feel really comfortable throughout the process and got some beautiful shots of our special day. I would recommend The Marvelous Real to anyone looking for a quality photographer for an intimate occasion.Jul 6, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I do not. Each job is different, and I think I need to understand what a customer needs before quoting a price.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?It all starts with a chat. I really think of myself as a storyteller, but I can't tell a story if I don't know the customer who I am working with.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?My background was as a writer first, but a few years ago, I was teaching in San Francisco's Mission District, and I was writing about disconnected youth whose families were being pushed out by rampant gentrification. Filmmaker friends encouraged me to pick up a camera, and to help train me to tell those young people's stories, these friends started hiring me to be a second shooter for weddings and events. I can't say I am self-taught because those friends taught me a lot of what I know.
