Albert is a wonderful photographer. I love the pictures he took of our concert last night. He captured the mood beautifully. I will definitely use him again.

Michael was perfect, he shot our wedding recently in Feb. The guy is an absolute workhorse capturing everything and more. We could not believe how many shots he got - plus more. Something like 700+ plus shots. It was like having 3 guys shooting our wedding. Seriously, we did not really see him. In the shadows, and superbly skillful, capturing many moments that we did not get to witness. All thanks to his amazing timing and eye. Guests complimented us about our photographer, about how personable and professional he was. To sum it up, he was part of the wedding, the crew. One of the gang so to speak, family loved him, friends loved him, we love him. We would HIGHLY recommend Michael to anyone looking for a photographer that actually does REAL photography. REAL moments and not your typical white washed editing. Photos with soul. We felt beyond confident handing the check over to him, and we will be using his skills again in the near future when our baby comes! Thank you again Michael -you simply rock!!!!!!!

It was a pleasure working with Kuks on this photo shoot, he is very personable and patient. Took the time to get to know me a bit before beginning which is pretty important for portrait photography. The pics turned out great, everyone loved them!

I've had the chance to use Martino's services last month, when I needed to do the commercial photo shoot of a new outdoor bench. I greatly appreciated his work and would highly recommend it for anyone needing a freelance quality photographer. Before the photo shoot, Martino has been very reactive to emails, understanding of our needs and proactive to have everything ready by the D-day (including reserving a blue screen for our white background shots). During the photo shoot, Martino made things very easy for us. He went through all the desired shots with precision and rapidity, easily switching from one spot to the other and adapting to our environment constraints. His easy-going and friendly temper made the work very enjoyable and helped being natural facing the camera. Martino also arrived right on time and made sure we had all our shots done before leaving. After the photo shoot, Martino did a great work at retouching pictures. The end results exceeded our expectations, considering the short time period (3,5 hours of shooting), the very bright afternoon light for outdoor shots and low luminosity for indoor shots. The whole deal was set at a very fair price too considering the amount of work and time flexibility. It feels great in the end!

Both black and white and color photos were stunning. He was responsive,on time / on budget, collaborative and thoroughly professional! It was a pleasure working with him.

From our initial conversation to the finished product, my experience with William was exceptional. Our family and friends wanted to capture photos while we were all in town together celebrating my birthday at a winery two days after Christmas. William was more than willing to work with us and our need for portraits, candids, and shots of our beautiful surroundings, and he went above and beyond to accommodate us over the holidays. William was very helpful during the planning stages and responsive via e-mail, text, and phone. During our first phone call, he answered all of my questions and helped me fine tune what I was looking for. After our second phone conversation, he provided an easy to digest contract and we solidified plans. William arrived at the winery a half an hour early and picked out a perfect spot for us to gather the family together. He offered great direction while also letting us do our own thing and was very good-natured, laid back, and easy to work with in response to our many special requests. We had a blast for the first half hour of our hour-long session getting together and posing and then almost didn't notice his presence while he took candids for the second half hour. William delivered tons of stunning photographs just five days later (on New Year's Day!). He captured everything we were looking for, from friends catching up down to the smallest details. His experience as a street photographer really shows--he snapped memories and milliseconds at just the right moment and had an eye for things I didn't even think to ask for. William created an online album for us and we are able to download or order prints. He has kindly offered to make additional edits or black and white copies at our request. I have already highly recommended William to several of my Bay Area friends and cannot say enough good things about the great value of my experience!

Steven was awesome. He is truly gifted at his craft. He recently photographed live shots of my band in a crowded bar and captured the true essence of the event. Steven was able to capture candid, but flattering photos of the band, which is often hard for photographers to do. I loved both the black and white and color images. Highest of recommendations! Carl

I have had several portraits done by Portrait Pix and they are always amazing. I look like a better version of myself somehow. Portrait Pix is accommodating, quick, easy and offers perfect photo retouching - not too much, not too little.

Hok is unbelievably great! Not only is he an absolute pleasure to work with, but his photos are stunning. We did all of our portraits before the wedding, and the entire experience was fun and easy. During the ceremony and reception, Hok managed to be everywhere and invisible at the same time. I cannot recommend Hok enough!

Michael Valentine was hired by my sister in law for a Family/40th Wedding Anniversary Photo. There were several conversations between the two of them prior to the photo shoot. I had some questions and each time my sister in law would text or email Michael he responded in a timely manner. We had a total of 12 people that would be photographed which included 4 families; 11 of us would be in the 40th Wedding Anniversary/Family Photo which took place on the staircase at my mother in laws home. Michael had a vision of how this photo would look and he made that vision come to life, this is an everlasting memory we will all have especially my in laws who in this picture had their son’s, their grand-kids, and their daughter in laws. Michael then moved on to taking individual profile photos of all the men/kids at the end of the staircase this moment for me was very heartfelt and showed me what type of photographer Michael really was. My older son has special needs and is not the easiest child to get a good photo of but Michael was so patient with my son and showed such compassion that he got the best photo of my son that I just love and as a mother of a special needs child that alone left me knowing that I would recommend Michael as a photographer for any special occasion or event your looking to have photos taken for. Once we were done on the staircase we moved into the living room so that Michael can take individual photos of the 4 families we had there and still Michael was so patient looking to get the perfect photo for each of us, I absolutely love the photo of my husband and my boys it’s been over 14 years that my family has taken a family photo and Michael made this experience very comfortable for us. Michael captured an amazing moment between my sister in law and my nephew that I can say I think I might be a little jealous of only because I didn't get a photo like heir’s.. LOL.. Once our shoot was over he downloaded all the photos to his laptop and we were all able to see the photo’s in a slideshow, now that was PERFECT. Michael took time with each of us to go through and select which photo we wanted and actually what he can do to fix any flaws in the photo (example: my husband came directly from work and forgot to change from his white soaks to his black so in one of the photo’s his white sock was showing which Michael will make it black for me), Michael worked with all of us in getting the best package for each of our selections. I would highly recommend Michael to anyone whom is in need of a photographer and if you’re a parent of a child with special needs Michael is the right photographer to hire.

Brianna of ShutterBee was easy to work with. She is creative, nice, professional, and takes great photos without breaking the bank. I would recommend her to photograph your wedding - she will also make changes later (Cropping, black and white) to photos as you like, to give you more options. We can't wait to explore our drive and book (yes, you can get a book made for extra - so we did) We got a good amount of vivid, intense photos - I will be happy scrapbooking these for some time. :) - Justine and Devon, married January, 2017

Melissa took pictures of our acoustic band BobKat. We wanted something candid and intimate that would convey the spirit of our music. Melissa listened to our ideas and made us feel comfortable and at ease with the process. She was very professional and knowledgeable about her craft, yet flexible and understanding to our needs at the same time. She took numerous shots at several angles and settings - she has quite a creative eye. We got multiple quality, classic black and white photos that are used for our promotional and personal use. We are very impressed with the entire experience of working with Melissa and the professional quality of the photos and highly recommend her!

From my experience as an actor who has gotten a dozen head shots from different photographers I'd say that being comfortable with the photographer makes a huge difference. Not only was I comfortable but he shot some really good shots. While taking inputs from his clients.

After coming back from a school field trip, Tracey handed me a couple black and white candid photos that she had taken of my daughter. I could not get over how she had captured the pure essence of my third grader. I later told Tracey that I had cherished the photos and framed them. I asked her if she wouldn't mind taking a couple pictures of my daughter who was about to graduate from high school. I then found out, to my complete surprise, that Tracey was a photographer…I should have known. Tracey then photogrphed my oldest daughter and it could not have been more perfect. She made everything feel comfortable and very natural. She used natural backgrounds that were creative and unique. Just beautiful. The following year I asked her to photograph my 17 year old son in action at a soccer game. Incredible once again! I could not be more thrilled with Tracey's work. She is awesome!!!

I have known Shauna for for 25 years ( wow). She has an amazing eye to capture children and families in their authentic state. The saying "a picture says a thousand words " is what I think every picture I've ever seen. She captures a moment that lasts an eternity . Her eye/ vision is incredible . As a family , we always looked forward to her families holiday cards as they were just spectacular ! When my now 20 year old daughter was an infant she took pictures in both black and white and color that just showed her " chill" personality and her gorgeous big brown eyes and long lashes. Shauna communicated and asked what kind of shoot did I want . She asked background, purpose and completely involved me in the process . You will be 100% satisfied!

Qamara recently shot my maternity photos. Not only does she have an eye for good lighting but she was quite creative with finding great backgrounds for the photos; this streamlined the photoset's mood and gave each shot something special. Qamara made me feel confident and helped me plan out the shoot. Considering how pregnant I was at the time, I felt a little lost on what to do and how I wanted my photos. Qamara immediately gave me numerous ideas of what we could do; she gave me clear direction throughout the shoot which made me trust her vision and made me feel comfortable. Qamara was flexible and her presence made me feel welcome and at ease. She even took some candid photos that I was surprised by which came out beautifully. She provided me with a wide array of photographs that included various poses, close-ups, black and white, color, profiles, portraits, landscapes, you name it! It was wonderful to have a huge selection to cherish. Qamara stuck to the time that I had to work with her and worked hard to produce as many quality photographs as possible in that time period. It's very hard for me to say what could've gone better to be honest, since I really am pleased with the whole experience Qamara provided. I think I would've wanted more time with her for the shoot, but that was on me. Also, having a tripod for the shoot would've been nice for some shots. But she has a steady hand so it all worked out. She mentioned that she has a tripod so for future shoots that shouldn't be a problem. I would want more black and white options for the final photos but that's a technical thing that I could just request next time. I'm literally scratching my head thinking of something else but that is all! Qamara gets exponentially better with each photoshoot she does; I love all of her work on Instagram. Next time I need a photographer, she'll be the one I call.

We hired Joseph as our wedding photographer in May, 2015. Choosing a photographer can be nerve-wracking, but right off the bat, Joseph's confidence in his ability to get what I wanted put me at ease. On the day of the wedding, he did not miss a photo-opportunity- from the pre-wedding activities to the after-party. Joseph told me at our first meeting that if there was a shot I wanted, I could just grab him and he would make it happen, and this was entirely true. The boys and girls got ready in two different cities, but he somehow managed to get photos of both. The wedding party photos and bride/groom photos were my favorite- so unique and beautiful. Joseph actually went out and explored the wedding venue before the day of and found several places to take photos that I had not even seen. As for the ceremony and reception, I have gotten so many comments from others, saying that my wedding photos really captured the spirit of the day. Many people, including myself, were so impressed with the amount of guests and the variety of settings Joseph was able to capture. After the wedding he sent me all of the photos digitally, so I was able to upload whichever ones I wanted. He even provided copies of many of the photos in black and white, and sepia hues. I was able to create a book of my favorites on Shutterfly for a very reasonable price and they all printed perfectly. Overall, my husband and I were both very happy that we chose Joseph as our wedding photographer.

Rich is an excellent photographer! Very professional and super fun to work with! He took pictures of my family and made it a wonderful experience. Even my 11 year old son had a good time during the process. We wanted spontaneous photos (not stiff and posed). Rich delivered beautifully by suggesting multiple locations and snapped away while we chatted and enjoyed the weather. The photo shoot itself was great, but just as equally valuable was the post processing. I wanted artistic photos-- some black/white, some sepia, some color. Rich sat with me patiently, listened to what I was trying to achieve and created a series of beautiful photos I will always cherish. We plan on using Rich again and again personally-- AND after such a good experience we will also be using Rich professionally in my remodeling and real estate businesses.
