Needed Albert for a quick shoot after a previous photographer double booked. He was on time, professional, and accommodating under the last minute circumstances. Albert was super friendly, understanding and turned around project within a day (smaller project). I was overall impressed.
Nabor Godoy was fantastic. I needed a headshot for work on short notice. He more than delivered! He has a great studio in downtown San Francisco. I got there and he was ready. We went over lighting and backdrop options. I am not very good at smiling for the camera, but he brought out the best in me. He is good natured and talented! We did a series of shots and then paused to look. He and I talked about the work I do and agreed which photo was best. He said he’d work a bit on the shading and wow, two hours later I had it. It was great — better than I expected, and much better than anything I might ask a friend to do on an I-phone. Totally satisfied.
I was looking for an affordable, no frills, family photographer-- I received 10 bids thru thumbtack, and Lawrence's bid was LESS than 1/3 the cost of the others-- PLUS he gave us the DVD with all the prints (most photographers will only allow you to order prints thru them). He scouted out a location, met us the day after Christmas, and had our photos ready on DVD the very next day. I highly recommend him for anyone looking for high quality, basic family photos.
My husband and I needed a photographer that had the patience to capture a great photo of us and our 6 dogs. We've done this before with other photographers and we know what a challenge it is getting all 6 to behave and look at the camera at the same time. As predicted it did have it's chaotic moments. But Michael just kept shooting and telling us it was all fine, which put me at ease and captured some fun moments. Even when one of our dogs took off (our fault) Michael put down his camera and took off after him, and brought him back to finish the shoot. The photos were very artistically done with this cool 60's effect. Not sure how he did it but we loved it because it was very different from other photos we have. He also did some lovely B&W's which are begging to be made into an iPhoto booklet. We even blew up our favorite and had it canvas wrapped to hang in our office at home. I would recommend Michael Keel Photography for any type of photo shoot knowing you will get something artistically beautiful and maybe a little unexpected.
Thomas Sparks is an amazing photographer. His eye for lighting and positioning is exceptionally skilled, he captures precious moments that many photographers may not catch. He has tremendously creative, easy to work with and affordable. Can't say enough about this photographer! You won't be disappointed.
We had our pre wedding photoshoot done by Diane and it was a great experience. We were visiting SF for a few days and were wondering if we will be able to capture the essence of the place in the photoshoot, but Diane drove us to the most beautiful places in the city and clicked lifelong memories. We had some pictures clicked with our friends as well and they came out really well. Diane was very flexible and it was fun spending the entire day with her. She made us really comfortable and helped us all along the photoshoot. I will highly recommend her to couples for their wedding and prewedding photoshoots.
Tri Nguyen was an excellent photographers. He was very flexible scheduling, and was quite quick when shooting. The process was painless and even enjoyable. Can't wait to see the edited photos!
Chantelle is a wonderful make up artist and hair stylist. She is very professional and will be there on time and will work with how and what you want to look like. She will give gentle suggestions when she feels that something may go better for you but she respects your decisions and will do her best to create your vision. She delivers A++ service on her craft. Even when pressured for time she does an amazing job and she will not disappoint. My experience with her is excellent. I would hire her again an again if she lived closer to me! Not only incredicble skills and work ethic she is such a wonderful person to be around with! Just being around her makes you relax that you just forget all the stress! Bottom line, in my experience: I felt very pretty that day. The day before I was so scared I'd look like an ugly duck. When we finished the hair and make up she was one of the first to boost my confidence and there were certainly TONS of people who followed after her. I owe that whole experience to her. Thank you so much!
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!
Fun Frame Photo Booth were simply wonderful!! They created just want we wanted and everyone enjoyed the photographers very much.
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.
Im soooo happy I finally got to shoot with this guy! For all you models & non-models looking to do a sexy boudoir, follow/hit up Cheshire! I have to say, he’s one of the best boudoir photographers I’ve ever had. Not only is his studio simply gorg, but he also makes you feel comfortable & incredibly beautiful. Meeting you with champagne, grapes/cheese/crackers while you’re getting ready makes you feel like you’re the only special one during your shoot. I felt like a million bucks shooting in front of him. By being so taken care of, your photos will definitely reflect that and turn out AMAZING! Even my unedited photos were simply beautiful! Whether you’re doing a boudoir for yourself or for your loved one, reach out to @oaktownboudoir for your bookings!
Stephanie was a joy to work with. I was new the area and didn’t quite know what would make for good photographs, but wanted some high-quality photographs to remember an important trip. Stephanie was fun, open-minded and just generally great to work with. I now have some gorgeous photos to remember my trip. I absolutely recommend her to others looking for a photographer.
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!
Pleasure working for such a top-notch professional photographer!
We hired Larry for our company event, he is very responsible, provides great work with excellent price. A lot of other photographers will try make extra by not providing a full service, with him all the planning and post editing are included. Larry is also great that when we were setting up the venue, he arrived early to help, as well as staying late to help us clean up. Great guy!
Very professional and great turn around time. Just hired him as my official photographer for all my future events!
Ivan is one of the most innovative and creative photographers out there today. He has a wide variety of equipments to give you a complete experience and constantly keeps upgrading them to be on par with today’s technology. From model photography to wedding photography, he’s very knowledgeable in capturing the right moments. Definitely the photographer you should look out for!
Peter is a very professional and talented photographer. I would highly recommend him.
I absolutely loved the photographer and the quality of the photos she produced. It was very easy to work with her and the outcome of the photographs were stunning! The raw images she took of our event were exactly what I was looking for and she took my directions and overall vision into consideration while taking her pictures. She was worth every penny and it was a great price that didn't compromise on quality. She also does beautiful landscapes as well, despite the pictures for my event being mostly people. Ultimately, the photographer was a superstar that delivered on personality, professionalism, and beautiful photographs.
Stephen and Julian were great photographers who knew what they were doing. I just showed up for my photoshoot and they did the rest. Both were extremely professional and delivered the photos the day of via digital files. Totally would recommend them to anyone who needs multiple photographers to cover events or photo shoots because they both show up for the price of one which is quite unique.
