Nabor Godoy did an amazing job. We went to Berkley to do the couple shoot and the location he took us too was beautiful. Nabor was very patient with us and made us feel comfortable first. He has an excellent eye for photography and takes marvelous shots. He is a perfectionist and is very prompt with his emails and replies. Very warm person and makes sure he gets us shots the way we want them.

I recently got acting headshots from Brian. It was great working with him! He was very friendly, and I felt comfortable enough to try out some awesome expressions/poses/etc. We would do a series of shots, then look at them on his laptop so that I could see what was working and what wasn't and adjust accordingly. With previous photographers, they would just do a bunch of shoots, then show me the photos online the next day. Brian found a great hair and makeup professional who made me look and feel beautiful! And finally, I appreciated that Brian was really flexible about timing, editing, background setup, etc. Thanks Brian!

Neither of us had experienced being photographed formally before, unless you're counting work headshots (and I'm not), so trying to find a wedding photographer was a little intimidating. I spent a number of years on the east coast as part of an informal photography group that had several professionals as members... so we went into the search feeling pretty confident that we knew what we were looking for... and I'm happy to say we found it. Michael's documentary style suited us perfectly. We had to reschedule our park-setting engagement shoot about four times because it rained so much here last winter and Michael was flexible, informal, easy to work with, didn't make us feel awkward or odd while posing, and clearly loves his work. We had fun! When the wedding day arrived, he was prompt, friendly, and kept up with our rather unique event. He was so kind with family while posing us after the ceremony, and he was both creative and efficient with the shots of us as a couple also - we weren't rushed, and we made it to the cocktail hour! The shots of our first dance (we'd learned to swing dance for the occasion) are some of my favorites, as well - the angles he picked were perfect. He knew how to be unobtrusive, but also when to speak up to cue us for a specific shot. Best of all, the photos were edited and back to us even faster than he'd promised them. Michael's a quality human, making quality photos... we'd highly recommend him to anyone!

I had the greatest experience working with Sheila! I approached Sheila for a few headshots and few full length shots which I needed for a competition. We had a two hour photo shoot in the beautiful half moon bay. Sheila took great details to plan the shoot and was very responsive and thoughtful. She had great ideas which helped bring out the best in my photographs. She reached the venue long before the shoot and planned a few areas to take the shots. She is a thorough professional and makes your experience comfortable and unique. She delivered the online proofing gallery and the edited photographs soon thereafter. I was so impressed by her work that I would rate here a 20 on a scale of 10.

We hired Tri to do our team's headshots. He was incredibly flexible & worked hard to find a time that could work for both parties. The headshots themselves were quick, painless & turned out great! And overall, he was incredibly responsive throughout the process.

Chantelle provided wedding makeup for me, 5 bridesmaids, and my mother. She did an amazing job making everyone look absolutely gorgeous and yet still natural and like themselves. My makeup stayed beautiful all night long -- after 12 hours, when I got home at the end of the night, it still looked incredible! She's also great fun to be around: chatty, funny, sweet, and just a beacon of light. She's exactly the kind of person you want around on your wedding day (or any day) to help you laugh and stay calm. I would hire her again in a heartbeat, have already recommended her to one friend, and will continue to recommend her to anyone in need of a makeup artist!

I couldn't be more pleased with Patrick's photography service and the final delivered images. He visited our office a week prior in order to check out the space, and arrived early on photoshoot day to allow ample time for setup. He was pleasant and professional with each staff member, putting them at ease in front of the camera, and was even able to accommodate some last minute schedule changes. I appreciated how communicative and thorough he was with his process. We're already trying to book him for our next round of headshots for new team members. Thanks for all your work, Patrick!

I went in to get professional headshots for work and school, and Cheshire was very down to earth and easy to work with. He accommodated me on a weekend, too. His photos have dimensionality and look 'real', without much pretense. Because of that, even my flaws somehow seemed cherishable and that was a nice surprise for me! I'm glad I went with him, and the photos turned out great!

Timothy was great. I hired him for corporate headshots of my executives. Everyone was very pleased with the results, we all looked fantastic! I highly recommend Timothy; he's very professional and made everyone feel at ease. He was on site for two days with no disruption to our day to day work space. Thank you Timothy!

My daughter was turning 18 and going to be a Senior in high school. We're from Virginia and traveled to San Francisco to visit family. I wanted to have my daughter's Senior portrait in the San Francisco area such as having the background of the Golden Gate Bridge and Baker Beach. Unfortunately, it's a hit or miss with the fog and wind in the city. I brought this up to Justin and he was able to recommend other places. Justin was prompt with responding with the many email exchanges. When we met at Central Park, he was there with his assistant. It was a beautiful day in San Mateo. He took pictures in the gazebo at the rose garden and the Japanese Garden. By the way it's the Japanese Garden's 50th anniversary this year. The second place for the photo shoot was the Pulgas Water Temple. The last time I was there was 26 years ago when my husband and I had our wedding pictures taken there. Justin took some great photos there too with the reflective pool. From there we drove to Moss Beach in Half Moon Bay. The trees surrounding the place were picturesque. Olivia changed into a different outfit. Her outfit was fitting for the color of the place. The slight breeze featured a wind blown flow with her hair and blouse. Justin also took a few headshot pictures of my other daughter and of us as a family. Early that evening he sent me a couple of pictures to see. They were magnificent. A few days later we were able to download the photos. Overall, we were very happy with the quality of the photos he took.

I hired SFImagery (Rick) to take some headshots. I am not the type of person who practices their smile in the mirror or makes any special effort when posing for pictures. So, I was not exactly nervous about getting some corporate head shots, but I was not looking forward to it. Rick was great. He made everything very easy, from scheduling the session to the actual shoot. He paid meticulous attention to lighting, positioning, clothing, etc., and he made me feel very comfortable. Best of all, the pictures turned out great, which of course, is what really matters.

Johnny is very professional and made me feel completely at ease during my headshots. Johnny adapted the photographs to the changing light of the day, weather, and discovered beautiful and natural backdrops that highlighted my outfits perfectly.

I’ve known Steven and had seen his work for many years. When it was time for me to get headshots done I naturally thought of him. His work was everything I expected it to be. The morning we spent shooting was more like hanging out with an old friend which made it easy to poise for him. You can tell Steven enjoys his work and it comes thru in the final product.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
