Lawrence was terrific to work with. He went well above and beyond the initial request to provide me with an excellent experience and portfolio of photos to enjoy for the rest of my life. Lawrence took photos of a surprise proposal for my now fiancee. He offered to meet me in SF the day before the date of the event to map out the plan in person together. He arrived 30 minutes early on the day of the event and snapped 100+ excellent & candid photos of the proposal. He then stayed with us for another hour after the proposal to take more staged engagement photos, and even met us again later that evening to capture different lighting and allow us to change clothes. The initial quote was simply for an hour of his time on the day of the proposal.

I can't say enough how happy we are with Michael as our wedding photographer. He did both our engagement photos and our wedding photos and, although it is still too soon for us to have gotten all of our wedding photos back yet I am confident they will come out amazing (just like our engagement photos did and the sneak peak photo of our wedding that he has already sent us). In addition to skills as a photographer I would also recommend michael for his laid back and fun personality that really helped us to just relax and be normal on our wedding day!

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!

I interviewed about 15 photographers to try to find the perfect one and I finally did! I had a lot of specific requests that I wanted photos and video footage of many special things so that my video can turn out the way I want it to and give a specific story,both Ruben and Omar jumped in no problem! They were always around me whenever I needed and it was fast and easy to get pictures with everyone and not waste time. I can not wait to are the final product! So far the preview pictures I have got have had emotion and been beautiful! Here is a picture of my husband and dad and probably one of my favorite photos ever now! I really suggest using these guys... I have already had 3 friends from the wedding ask for their contact information! They won't disappoint!

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.

The photography for our engagement was one of the most important aspects for my wife and me and we spent many days looking for someone who had the same ideas and passion as us. From the moment we met Stavan, we knew we had found the perfect photographer whose talent was far beyond any others we had seen. His pictures were stunning and creative. He was great to work with and we have the most wonderful set of photos to look back on to in years to come.

Andrea shot engagement photos for us recently, and we loved working with her. She met us at an obscure beach, waded across a creek and stuck with us through wind and cold to capture incredible moments that we'll treasure forever. We showed her a few inspiration shots on Pinterest and she reproduced several to a tee. Not only was the outcome more than we hoped for, Andrea was a joy to spend the day with. She's prompt, friendly, has a great eye, incredibly quick turnaround and very affordable. Can't recommend her enough!

Jennifer Photographed our wedding in November at the Flower Farm in Loomis, CA. She hit all the “required” shots we planned ahead of time, tons of candids during the reception, and “details” which I never really thought I wanted but was glad to have once I saw them and remained in our budget. We were very lucky to have had a rainbow since it was raining prior to the ceremony. She caught a beautiful photo of us that will be treasured in our home forever. Hire her! You won’t regret it!!

Fahim was the photographer at our engagement party. He is a nice guy and you can tell he wants to get the perfect shots and go above and beyond to make it a lifetime memory. Him and his wife are very friendly, and I would recommend them to anyone who's looking for a photographer to do the job right.

Eric was AMAZING! Since the beginning he answered all the questions we had, we loved taking to him before the shooting so he knew what we were expecting. He meet us at the location we choose and after the pictures taken there he suggested another spot we could use and we are so happy he did it since those pictures are gorgeous! We definitely recommend him and we look forward to hire him again :) Thanks Eric! David & Katia

Working with Usman on our wedding day was a enjoyable and stress-free experience. Being an experience photographer for marrying couples at SF City Hall, he did an excellent job leading us and telling us about what shots worked best. Usman was very accomodating and fun to work with. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer who is talented, a professional, and all-around nice person!

I've hired many photographers in the past for various events such as wedding, corporate parties and other events and William J Simpson trumps all of them by far! I knew I would enjoy his artistic take on photography and I love his eye for great moments and angles. Who knew it would take a first birthday party to finally find the right photographer! :) He was very punctual, responded quickly to my emails, and such a joy to work with during the event. Professional and personal at the same time. You won't regret hiring him for your next project or event. I know I'll be coming back to him for future events!

I just got back our engagement photos and we are ecstatic! First off Allan was super friendly and awesome to work with, we planned something last minute and he was super cool about our new location choice and he came prepared and researched. My fiance was pretty uncomfortable with the idea of photos because he doesn't like doing this kind of stuff but Allan was super personable and made us laugh which really made the process effortless and fun! Not to mention the end result is amazing. The photos are extremely professional amd clear. We are very happy with the photos and would recommend Allan to anyone. Thanks so much!

Kathleen was absolutely AMAZING!! She has a calming presence that made me feel at eaze on my wedding day. She was so helpful and easy going. The turnaround time on my wedding photos was also very quick, while we were waiting she provided little sneak peaks of some her her favorite shots. This was nice so we could share some photos with family and friends. She caught so many special moments. The quality and composition of her photos is exceptional. I highly recommend Kathleen and hope to work with her again on other photoshoots in the future. Thank you so much Kathleen it was SUCH a pleasure working with you!!!

Nic came ahead of time on the day of the event. He coordinated well with the photographer. We hired him for the raw footage of the event and highlights video. He was very responsive over email, and provided raw footage of the event within a week. Highlight video contained well selected scenes.

Frank was our photographer for our wedding at the iconic city hall in San Francisco. Working with Frank was a pleasure and we couldn't be happier with the results. The images he took of our ceremony and of us as a family in city hall are now cherished heirlooms. Frank was professional throughout the entire process, he was the first person to arrive at city hall (he was early) and he took a creative approach throughout, not only taking photos of the ceremony but he also took beautiful shots of the the environment and candid photos of our family going with us through the whole process. Upon completion of the ceremony Frank promptly shared with us the results which included not only the raw camera files, but a complete set of color corrected and edited photos. The results are stunning. I highly recommend working with Frank should you need a photographer. Jhanette, Oakland, CA
