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!

Great experience from scheduling through receiving the photos. I could not be happier with the quality of the results. In fact, someone endorsed me for "portrait photography" on LinkedIn - how is that for an endorsement?

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!

Thomas did a great job capturing our wedding at Wine & Roses in Lodi! Very professional and friendly person. He was never in the way or distracting like I have seen with other wedding photographers and yet he was still able to take so many amazing and memorable photos. Thank you!

Sheila is not only a talented photographer but also very professional. She is very communicative and was a pleasure to work with. She was a joy to have around during the wedding day and was honestly a "fly on the wall" unlike other wedding photographers who are too "in it". The pictures she takes are beautiful and extremely well priced. I would not hesitate to work with her again. I actually look forward to it.

Adam and Hanna are the best photographers we ever had! They did an outstanding job during our wedding! They were there taking all the pictures we wanted but they never got in the way. They are a wonderful married couple and so friendly and easy to work with and very professional at the same time. The quality of their photographs is of the highest order! We are so happy we chose them. We give Adam and Hanna our highest recommendation for your wedding or for any major event you have.

I was in need of an updated portrait photo for use in my marketing materials. I scheduled a session with Jennifer and I'm so thrilled with the photos she took. She just has that gift of capturing you at your best. She provided me with my photos very quickly. I will definitely contact her for my future photography needs.

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 spent a day shooting photos with Cheshire and had a terrific time. We did a mixture of portrait and full-body shots in a variety of outdoor locations around the East Bay, with a few changes of clothing. Cheshire was very friendly and an absolute pleasure to work with. Best of all, I loved how the photos turned out. They are attractive, presenting me authentically and in my best light. Additionally, Cheshire's rates are good for the quality he offers. I hope to work with Cheshire again in the future!

Eric did a fantastic job capturing my portrait photos around San Francisco area. Right from corresponding with me for choosing the best locations to building a strong theme for my shoot, Eric was very patient and paid close attention to detail. I highly recommend scheduling any of your photoshoots with him because he is willing to go above and beyond to offer you the best output. His knowledge of SF is reflected in his ability to identify ideal locations for different occasions. I can vouch that you'll be more than satisfied by his excellent work.

Usman has done a fantastic job with our wedding photo-shoot in a limited time on a limited budget! We were very comfortable around him and he told us how and where to stand, so we felt at-ease. It was a natural and relaxing process, which we are grateful for. We got great portrait photos and picturesque views of us and majestic City Hall. We don't regret our photographer choice even a second and I would recommend him to everyone!

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.

Steven is a talented photographer, who puts a lot of attention and detail into his photography and editing. He's receptive to feedback and will keep shooting until you get the shot you want. He has a lot of experience working with both natural lighting and strobes. I've worked with Steven multiple times for both portrait and fashion photography, and his work never fails to impress me.

Matthew was very responsive right from the start of our dialogue on Thumbtack. And when the actual day came for our family portrait, he came to the location we agreed on, on- time. However, some family members were running late but he was extremely patient with all of us all throughout. His patience along with his amazing eye for good back ground for our picture, made it so much easier and fun to tolerate the incredible heat wave we had on the day we took the pictures. I would definitely contact Matthew again for my future photograph needs. Oh and I should also mention that it was twenty of us that he had to deal with, including some very little ones (5 to be exact that were under the age of 5) that were NOT co-operative to the most part:)
