Albert took my profile photos and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a profile photographer. He was very professional and very easy to work with. The photos far exceeded my expectation, and the price was relatively friendly.

(SPANISH BELOW) I want to highly recommend Nabor for your next photography project. I was contacted by my book editor asking for a head sot for my next novel. I live in Petaluma, CA and after looking at the rates of local photographers I tried this website. I obtained several bids and since I know very little about photography I asked my son for his opinion (he does photography for fun). After looking at the work of the people who sent bids he advised me that Nabor's work was the best "hands down". I negotiated with Nabor and he traveled to Petaluma to take the photos. We met early in the morning and when I got there he was already waiting for me. I was immediately impressed with his professional demeanor and flexibility. We walked around town and he knew exactly where the right background was. I knew then I was working with an artist. The love for his work is apparent in the photos he took. He got it right from the third photo but went on to take 191 photos!!!. The difficult part for me has been having to decide on just one photo. Nabor is definitely the best photographer I have ever worked with. There is something else beautiful about Nabor and that is that his first language is Spanish which is also my first language. It was truly a pleasurable experience to collaborate with someone passionate about his work. His photo will be a blessing to my novel. Thank you Nabor. (IN SPANISH) Quiero recomendar altamente Nabor para su próximo proyecto de fotografía. Mi editor de libros me pidió una fotografía reciente y profesional para mi próxima novela. Yo vivo en Petaluma, California, y después de mirar los precios de fotógrafos locales decidí probar este sitio web. Obtuve una serie de ofertas y puesto que sé muy poco acerca de la fotografía le pregunté a mi hijo su opinión (él hace la fotografía por diversión). Después de ver el trabajo de las personas que enviaron las propuestas mi hijo me aconsejó que el trabajo de Nabor era el mejor "sin comparación". Negocié con Nabor y viajó a Petaluma para tomar las fotos. Nos encontramos temprano en la mañana y cuando llegué ya me estaba esperando. Me impresionó inmediatamente su profesionalismo y su flexibilidad. Caminamos por el pueblo y él eligió el escenario perfecto para las fotos, sin durarlo mucho. Entonces supe que estaba trabajando con un artista. El amor por su trabajo es evidente en las fotos que tomó. Desde la tercera foto ya había cumplido con su encomienda y sobrepasado mi expectativa, pero siguió trabajando hasta tener ¡ 191 fotos !!!. La parte difícil para mí ha sido decidir en una sola foto. Nabor es sin duda el mejor fotógrafo con quien he trabajado. Hay algo todavía más bello de Nabor y es que su primer idioma es el español, que también es mi primera lengua. Fue realmente una experiencia agradable colaborar con alguien apasionado por su trabajo. Su foto será una bendición para mi novela. Gracias Nabor.

Lawrence Gerald provided an excellent service and at a reasonable price. He was timely, professional, and proved to be very skilled at what he does. The photos were amazing and he even threw in a slide show, which was equally great. I would highly recommend Lawrence to anyone looking for a professional photographer for whatever event. No complaints whatsoever.

This photographer is very professional and great at making his subject feel at ease and comfortable. Mr. Sparks took the time to allow the subject to make choices without stress or the feeling of being rushed. This photographer showed pride in his work and places his customers first. Mr. Sparks overall even with all the years of experience exhibits an immense love for his work and for his subjects that the goal is as close to perfection as he can offer to his clients.

Stavan and his team were the photographers and videographer at our wedding a couple of weeks ago in Gilroy CA. They were reliable, energetic, personable, very creative and professional in every way. The showed us on time. Every guest was impressed how approachable they were. We can't wait to see the photos! My wife is counting down the dates to get the pictures and I feel sure they are going to amaze us! I will return with more reviews after we get the pictures and videos.

Ahhhh, I absolutely love our photos! Andrea photographed our daughter's first birthday party. She was an absolute pro, on time, low maintenance, sleuth-y. :) The images are amazing and she gave us soooo many. (So often photographers only give 10-20 as part of the rate, but Andrea shared over 200 with us.) She was lovely, talented, and responsible. I would hire her again and so should you!

Tri is a very friendly and professional photographer. I definitely got a few good headshots and we had a nice couples shot as well. My boyfriend's headshots did not turn out quite as well for him, and I may need to take them on my own. I think Tru was very nice, but we could have benefited from more direction during headshots.

Best photographer!!!! She was early to the venue and stayed until the very end. Knew exactly what to do for all the big wedding moments and directed us perfectly with what we were suppose to do and how our pictures would turn out great. We haven't seen the pictures yet so I can't comment on that but if it was anything like her great energy and enthusiasm I'm sure they will be excellent!!! I would hire her again in a heartbeat!

Eric and Claire were a delight to have as our photographers. Each time we spoke with Eric, he came prepared with ideas on locations. Before the actual day, he scouted out additional locations. We liked his work which is why we picked him. But, our wedding was on Saturday and we've already seen some samples, and we love, love what we've seen so far. Eric is professional, accommodating and his passion for his work is apparent. Even our guests enjoyed his presence at the wedding. We couldn't be happier with our experience of working with him.

Tri has been a really great partner on a number of projects. He is thorough, detail oriented, flexible, and really easy to work with. He is a skilled photographer and able to really hone in on the mood that you are trying to evoke. Beyond photography Tri has also started managing our social media accounts which are growing exponentially since he's taken them over. I would highly recommend him.

I asked Steven to take my Graduation Photos this past May (2017). I was attracted to his dramatic style and was even more impressed with the final photos. Steven's professionalism shone through and made working with him a breeze. He works hard to make sure customers like the photos they are getting -- he asked about what kind of poses I was comfortable with, discussed what colors/style I was looking for, and continuously shared the photos he took throughout the shoot for feedback. He was very accommodating to my numerous requests (which included asking for photos at extra angles, re-taking photos to fix even the most minute details) and was patient in trying new poses and ideas. His attention to detail helped elevate the quality of the final product. This was exemplified during the shoot, through his simple suggestions on how to fix poses, as well as after, when the final photos demonstrated his strong eye for color. Furthermore, having worked with multiple photographers in the past, I have come to realize that being comfortable with the photographer is extremely important for truly natural, candid photos. Steven is both friendly and funny; I didn't feel awkward in front of the camera or too "pose-y." I believe the example photos I attached below show how much fun I had shooting with him! +++, 10/10, would recommend!! I look forward to working with Steven again in the future :)

The event for which I hired him was a surprise and he showed up early and was ready to go right when I needed him. The pictures he took were very high quality though there were some instances where better angles could have been used - only minor flaws though. All in all, I would recommend him if you’re looking for a punctual photographer that will produce high quality photos for a reasonable price
