We're very happy with the work that DeNoise Studio did for our wedding. We decided at the very last minute (like two weeks beforehand) that we wanted video of the ceremony, and once we found Albert, he hit the ground running. His promptness and efficiency came through not just during the planning process but after the wedding itself, as the turn-around on producing the video was only a few days! And the video turned out exactly the way we wanted: a very simple and beautiful portrait of a wonderful hour of our lives. Thanks so much, DeNoise!

We hired Nabor for my son's senior picture photo shoot. He was extremely personable and professional throughout the session. He had an excellent eye for outfits, poses, and lighting that translated into so many proofs that I'm still struggling to choose between them 5 days later! I would highly recommend Nabor for a portrait or headshot session - update your LinkedIn profile today with a professional portrait!

Andrea did an incredible job photographing my 3-day business seminar called PleasureCEO Live! She worked well within the setting, and managed to capture some precious moments that I can now use well in my marketing materials. I myself am a professional portrait photographer so my standards are quite high, and I highly recommend Andrea for your events!

I highly recommend Patrick Power! I needed a professional portrait for a legal job application, and I hadn't had one taken in over 20 years. I wanted it to be professional, but also unique. I wasn't sure how to find a photographer, so I just put out a bid on thumbtack. Patrick responded very quickly and with a very reasonable price. I had resigned myself to just getting a studio portrait with a neutral background, but Patrick had the idea of meeting at City Hall to take the photo. I was very nervous and self-conscious about the process. I don't like having my picture taken and I am not very photogenic. It helped that City Hall was full of other photographers taking pictures of brides, grooms, and other people like me, so I didn't really stand out. I had a problem and ended up being pretty late to our meeting, but Patrick was very nice about it. I was sweating like crazy in my suit, but he did a good job of putting me at ease and letting me rest and cool down for a little bit white while he staked out spots to take the photo. He talked with me casually about what I was looking for in the photo, but we also made small talk about our lives and work, so that soon I felt very comfortable with him. As a result, I looked very natural in the photo. Patrick took a lot of shots, and several of them were quite good. I needed the work done on very short notice, including a print. I made the bid on a Sunday, we did the photo shoot on Monday, and I had the print by Tuesday morning. I love the photo, and my family and friends do too. Everyone agreed that not just my appearance, but also my personality comes through in the photo. I will definitely call Patrick again if I need another photo taken in the future!

If you’re reading this to find out more about Oaktown Boudoir... STOP! Just email Chesire and DO IT! I wanted to make a boudoir book for my fiancé as a wedding day gift. I started my search initially through Groupon which then led me to Yelp and finally Oaktown Boudoir. I emailed and Chesire quickly responded. He was extremely helpful in answering all my questions and helping me set up an appointment to meet and plan for the photo shot. Please don’t mistaken his quick response as a pressure to do business but rather his enthusiasm (not once did I feel pressured). He offered exactly what I had envision for the gift (a small fold out accordion book to be given on the wedding day). We quickly clicked and planning was absolutely a breeze. Don’t be fooled by the studio and it’s “small appearance” from the outside. Inside is amazing. The studio has many different rooms and Chesire is able to recreate any backdrop you envision. I looked to his Instagram page to provide samples of what I wanted. During our initial meet we planned out the different pictures I would like to have taken and discusses timing to utilize natural lighting as much as possible. Now for the actual day...I was so nervous. It’s not everyday I’m taking photos in lingerie, let alone in front of strangers. Hair and Make Up was completed by his Artist Thuy. They have been working together and you can tell by the chemistry they have. She worked on my hair and make up and was a complete sweet heart. She was absolutely so sweet. Completed my make up and made me feel simply amazing. To calm my nerves he has an array of beverages and the bubbly. Oh wait did I mention a cheese, crackers and fruit platter?!?!?! Music was playing while we got ready. He ever contacted me before to inquire about my music taste so he could make a personalized playlist for the photo shot. The photo shot was amazing. Thuy stayed and helped with my hair and make up in between photos to ensure I looked amazing. We shot for several hours but only because Chesire wanted to complete and be able to take all the pictures I wanted. If you’re wondering about the extra time and if I had to pay extra...he didn’t charge me. He wanted to make sure he got all the photos and I would be happy (I just made sure I included a tip to make up for some of the time) The pictures came back rather quickly and boy were they amazing!!! He not only captured my natural bubbly self but also captured this seductive-lip-biting-bra off side I didn’t even know I had!!! When it came down to picking out the photos for the book...it was so hard because we had sooo many good photos but Chesire definitely took the time to help me pick out the photos and was extremely patience with all my corrections and edits. We probably made about 10 different drafts before we settled on a final book. If you’re wondering what my fiancé thought of the book...some things are better left as a secret ;)

Tri was exceptionally easy to work with, talented, and generous with his time, both in shooting and in retouching. I was looking for a mix of headshots/portraits: something professional, something fun, something that would display youthful charm and something that would display maturity without being stiff. I got exactly what I was looking for, and Tri even encouraged my dad to join in and took some great father/son shots. I am doing a variety of media appearances and speaking engagements, and I feel like I have enough of a variety to choose a portrait that would work for any different kind of engagement, as well as for my social media accounts. I would highly recommend Tri to anyone looking for an incredible portrait from a photographer that will really take the time to get to know you and deliver photos that capture your personality and essence.

Alex IS AMAZING!!! Talented, patient, soft spoken, flexible and super creative. We are not much of a photogenic people on the first place, and my husband doesn't really like to take pictures. But our photos turned out better than we hoped every single time! And we are so happy that we've created wonderful memories to look back at thanks to Alex. From lovebirds photo shoot to maternity, to baby pictures and family portraits, Alex was able to capture incredible moments and details. And he is so good with capturing kids! Those moments of sweet smiles and silly giggles that you can almost hear through the picture are priceless. We had wonderful time every time we took pictures, I don't think there was a single photo we didn't love. I can't say enough of how happy we are to have Alex as our photographer. Now with another baby coming up in super exited and can't wait to create more memories. I would highly recommend Alex! You will not be disappointed!

Scott made a series of professional portraits to use for my business, website, marketing materials, etc. His work is impeccable, from set-up and lighting, to capturing the shots, to final touch-ups that make the images really pop. He made the whole process relaxed and enjoyable, and I couldn't be happier with the results. Very highly recommended.

We hired Rich Jarvis to take senior portraits of my son after a couple of failed attempts by the schools choice. This very special time needed to be captured and remembered. He did a phenomenal job! Not only did he choose a great setting but he worked with my son on multiple clothing changes and props. The hardest part will be choosing which ones to display as each and every photos is amazing! He Was personable, professional, and made sure to get exactly what we wanted. From now on he is the only photographer for our family!

BLACKBOX literally offers the space and everything a photographer and artist needs to create high quality work. The high vaulted ceilings allow for elevated lighting and the location is perfectly located in the eastbay. 5 stars for my new favorite studio.
