Albert took my profile photos and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a profile photographer. He was very professional and very easy to work with. The photos far exceeded my expectation, and the price was relatively friendly.

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.

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!

I appreciated that Roger took some very nice shots of my dog and me at a rally/obedience trial where pro photographers are seldom present. (Agility is so much more conducive to good action shots...) I was great to see the fruits of our labors so well portrayed.

I have worked with Tri for a year and a half on a number of photo shoots. He's always professional and possesses excellent photography/photo editing skills. After a shoot, he promptly provides proofs for the customer to review. I highly recommend Tri for portrait, fashion, sports and corporate photo shoots.

I hired Sumit to take head shots of our physicians and executive team through Thumbtack. I interviewed five different photographers and decided on Sumit after viewing his outstanding portfolio. He showed up right on time and brought all of his equipment to our office to set up a mobile studio. The whole process was much easier than I imagined. Sumit makes people feel comfortable and that shows in the photos. We are very pleased with the results. He is a true professional and I highly recommend him.

I really am happy with the choice I made for my birthday event. The photographer reached out to me prior to the event to get a feel of the chain of events which turned out very helpful; as I was able to make him aware of my expectations. He showed up a little ahead of schedule which was great too and handled himself very professionally. He had a great personality that my family members felt at ease with him and so did I. Having said that; it made it easy for him to work the event so well and capture many great group family photos as well as various scenario type photos of all those who attended. As a result the quality of the pictures taken; came out very nice and with a touch of finesse. Thanks again Big Smile video!!

We hired Tawnya for our baby photo shoot. Here are couple of things about our experience. She is professional, knows how to work with babies. She got lot of outfits to choose from. She has lot of patience which is must for babies photo shoot. She is right on time when baby is in good mood which helped to take good shots. Only issue we faced is that is in full busy with photo shoots. I generally prefer talking to photographers and this time i had to do it through text messages and emails. But still she is very prompt in getting all the information needed. Till now we are very happy about the photo shoot. We are waiting for the images. Once received i will be updating the ratings and comments

I was lucky enough to find Lubo and I decided to contact him for my Party photo shoot. The great news was that he is a more then proffesional photographer. The lights, the party, the people - everything was amazing and the pictures are like alive. Lubo, it was wonderful to work with you, very talented and you made me feel calm immediately. I was so impressed that I followed up with another party photo shoot. Lubo went above and beyond during both shoots taking the time to include our guests and made him a special moments. He was very professional and the photos speak for themselves….outstanding. I would highly recommend Lubo and look forward to work again and again!

Recommended! I hired Richard for a small back yard wedding. Watching him interact with the bride and groom brought tears to my eyes! He made them look and feel amazing. He also wore many hats that evening: taking formal pictures of the wedding party, action photos during the event and also taking photo booth style pics with props. He was a true professional, on time, prepared & pleasant to work with. I would love to work with him again.

I have worked with Brennan over the years at NYS Music and he is as professional a photographer as they come. You'd be doing yourself and your project a disservice by not working with him.

I am a photographer myself and had Kent Sorensen shoot a series of photos of me in action. The images he produced were outstanding in composition, clarity and captured the moment. I can enthusiastically recommend Sorensen to hire as a highly competent photographer who's easy to work with and produces high quality images.

I'm ecstatic to have found this gem of a photography studio to work alongside other great photographers that are putting out amazing work. BLACKBOX literally offers the space and everything a photographer and artist needs to create high quality work. The high vaulted ceilings allow for elevated lighting and the location is perfectly located in the eastbay. 5 stars for my new favorite studio.

Paul is simply one of the best photographers i've ever had the pleasure of working with. Not only is he an amazing photographer, but a great digital graphic artist but art director as well. As a his images always resulted in me getting more bookings. Paul is much more than a commercial photographer, he's great as the conceptual as well. Don't just take my word for it, his images speak for themselves.

Damon was such a pleasure to work with. Communication before the event was open and smooth and the day of our event, he arrived on time, very professional, and very friendly. Turnaround time for our photos was quick, and they turned out exactly how I hoped they would. Just amazing. Would absolutely recommend, and I will definitely be contacting Damon for any other events I need a photographer for.

After coming back from a school field trip, Tracey handed me a couple black and white candid photos that she had taken of my daughter. I could not get over how she had captured the pure essence of my third grader. I later told Tracey that I had cherished the photos and framed them. I asked her if she wouldn't mind taking a couple pictures of my daughter who was about to graduate from high school. I then found out, to my complete surprise, that Tracey was a photographer…I should have known. Tracey then photogrphed my oldest daughter and it could not have been more perfect. She made everything feel comfortable and very natural. She used natural backgrounds that were creative and unique. Just beautiful. The following year I asked her to photograph my 17 year old son in action at a soccer game. Incredible once again! I could not be more thrilled with Tracey's work. She is awesome!!!
