One of the young videographers from the studio filmed our event and did an excellent job. She was polite, professional and unobtrusive. She brought a sound system with her which we used to give short presentations to the guest of honor. I was very pleased with how adept she was. Now we await the editing of the footage, which is being done in the studio, to produce a DVD of the event. I have high hopes and every reason to believe it will be top notch. They are responsive, clear, accurate and business like in all their communications. I will post another review when we have the finished product. Jennifer from Pleasant Hill
(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.
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!
Clearlight Video & Photography captured the best of my wedding. Lawrence is professional, kind, outgoing, curious, thoughtful, and takes the initiative to get the perfect shot. He calmly and tactfully directed our guests into the frame to get all the compositions we asked for (and more). Lawrence has a natural ability to capture real emotion and personality from strangers, such that many of our best photos are his candids. Moreover, all of our guests complimented us on his professionalism, friendliness, and ability to get people in the shot to compose good images. Lawrence was easy to work with throughout the process. We negotiated a price easily, even though my situation was fairly unique. Lawrence also allowed me access to his RAW files, something many photographers refuse to do. When I was unable to transfer the files to my computer after the event, Lawrence made additional arrangements to ensure I received them. Lawrence even continued to work on some of my images after the event had completed and he had been paid in full, sending me his alterations gratis. In sum, I speak for all of my guests in saying we were incredibly impressed with Lawrence's work. Measured by quality, I can see the services of Clearlight Video & Photography easily costing in excess of $2,000, especially in the Bay Area. I consider Lawrence's photography services to be the best bargain of my wedding, and give him my highest recommendation.
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!
Great value for the price! Highly recommended if you want someone who knows what they are doing. We reviewed many different photographers and Sybex Studio really stood out from the rest. We were able to seal the deal with the awesome pricing. Thank you again Ruben for being very helpful.
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.
Jeff was smart, prepared, and professional. I selected him over other photographers because my impression was that he approached a job with the customer's needs at heart, and his work at our event certainly bore that out. He communicated well, was unobtrusive and helpful, and oh by the way he took some wonderful pictures of people engaged and working together at our event. You will enjoy working with Jeff, I promise.
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.
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.
Jennifer was the best photographer and witness my husband and I could have wished for. My husband and I got eloped at the San Francisco City Hall in February 2017. Jen was our photographer and sole witness. She was very helpful in guiding us around the city hall and she took the most beautiful and sincere pictures! My husband and I aren't very "romantic" or extroverted, so we were worried that we'd be put in cheesy awkward poses for our wedding pictures. But that wasn't the case at all! Jen was able to pick up on our personalities very quickly and she was able to feature the real us through her camera lens. Her experience, professionalism, and down to earth personality relaxed our wedding jitters and made us completely at ease. She was the perfect complement to our wedding day. I highly recommend Jen for any event :)
I've hired Danial Blue for my architecture photography. having one of the best photographers in the industry, is such a pleasure knowing that I'll receive professional and prompt service! Highly recommended
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.
Steve had a relaxed presence that put me at ease when arriving to the studio. The studio was small, but was the equipment was very nice. I utilized his services to get acting headshots, and before beginning to take the pictures, he had a handy book that visually showed how good and bad headshots look. He effectively guided me through various poses, and I had a lot of fun the whole time! Oh, and the photos looked fantastic in the end. Overall, what you'll get from working with Steve is a kind and talented photographer who'll make sure you're getting the bang for your buck.
My client needed an on-site photographer/videographer that was based in the Sacramento area, and Donald from Up Logic Media was the perfect fit for what we needed. Finding a professional you can trust to get the job done can be a nerve-racking, but Up Logic Media surpassed our expectations by a landslide.
Kathleen Schwartz is our go-to photographer for our real estate projects and advertising. Her natural "eye" for the best shot, and the patience to get it is the hallmark of her work. She is completely reliable and dedicated to producing the highest results. We use her without hesitation for our most important clients and would be lost without her.
Very creative photographer, I told him the shot I imagined and his shot is beyond my imagination. Very recommended!
Jim is a great videographer!!! After speaking with several videographer, Jim was the ONLY one I liked, besides the fact that his portfolio is exquisite. His professionalism is unlike any other. Jim was prompt with his responses and easy to work with. Although we have not seen our videos yet, I am sure they will be amazing. Jim was patient and understanding when we started to run behind on time during our function. He assured me that everything would work itself out and it did. Jim constantly checked in with me throughout the day to make sure he captured the right moments for our videos. He clearly is very good at his job. Prior to our function, I recommend Jim to a family member who also hired him. There event took place several weeks before our, so I had a chance to see Jim in action. Jim did not disappoint. My family member was very satisfied with Jim's work. I spoke to Jim during this event and even then he gave me several pointers in order to make sure my event went smooth. I can't recommend him enough! Thanks Jim. Frank R.
Working with Irina was easy from start to finish. We set a date that I had to postpone a couple times because I was sick. When I showed up for the shoot Irina spring into action. She gave good direction and tried a number of different poses. I didn't know how the photos would turn out, but she has a good eye and knows how to bring out the best in the subject. I was more than pleased with the photos. I have worked with other photographers and haven't enjoyed those experiences. This was a great experience and worth the fee!
Laurie was such a great photographer. We had her for our San Francisco kids birthday party. She captured every moment and covered more than 50-60 kids each having their special moments. She even climbed into the bouncy house to take picture of them while playing. We would love to work with her again.
I hired Keida day before a wedding for my sister in law. Which we didn't expect we would need one. He was SO accommodating and also went above and beyond to stay a bit longer than discussed for our event. He is so fast, efficient and very friendly. He came right on time and due to the last minute booking from phone consultation to day of, he worked with us the best he could. His example works were much better than the other videographers who gave a rate to our budget price. My gut told me to trust him, pay the extra and be his first client for Thumbtack. It was beyond what I expected and he did an excellent job and more! I wish I could give more stars than 5!
