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.

Loved Michael's work! Requested a non-intrusive journatlistc photography approach (candid shots) for a small wedding and that is exactly what we got. Michael was polished and un-assuming -- he blended in with the guests and captured the wedding and reception without interrupting the flow. Though the bride was afraid staged pictures would appear cheese-ball, Michael had the bride and groom pose in areas of the venue that he selected for a few photos- and they turned out to be the most beautiful photos of the collection. The only slip up we did not account for was finding parking in downtown San Francisco...On account of this Michael ran a tad late to the ceremony and reception venues. But his process, style & photographs made up for it!

We hired Sybex Studio for our wedding couple months ago and now hired them again for Thanksgiving party. We were really impressed with their service and reasonable price. We spoke to different vendors and Ruben and his team were very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about their job. We recommend Sybex Studio to anyone looking for event photography.

Our Annual Awards Ceremony is a very important event to our organization and to our members. Jeff's professional work ethic and his willingness to go the extra mile to get great candid shots were perfect. And I was so impressed by how fast he turned the shareable gallery around for us to share with our members. We will use Jeff for all of our professional photography needs!

I am very happy with my experience with Tiago and Julia for my graduation photos. Julia messaged me and answered all of my questions about what to expect and what I would get for my price range. Tiago was very friendly and helped me get some great shots at the locations I wanted on campus as well as in Golden Gate Park. Most of the shots were sent to me so I could choose the ones I wanted to be edited fully. I am so happy with them!!

I would highly recommend working with Rich Jarvis Photography. He took on-campus graduation photos for myself and 7 other of my friends. The images came out absolutely beautiful. The images quality is spectacular, and we got the pictures back really fast. I also liked that he was able to work with all of our different personalities, and gave us suggestions for poses.

We recently hired Matt to do some photography for a client project at our marketing agency. We were thrilled with the creativeness that he offered to our project and the final product was nothing short of outstanding! Everything from organizing/planning, to shooting, to delivery of the final artwork was flawless. We will definitely look to using Matthew DePauw Photography for future projects. I also intend to reach out to him for personal use as I know that his personality and fun attitude will be a great match for our upcoming annual family photos!

He has an amazing eye... he seems to capture the essence of every moment perfectly... and freezes it ... so you relive the magic in it just a little every time you look at the photo afterwards. Wonderful photography by a talented photo-artist!! I highly recommend him, you won't be disappointed!

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.

Chris got to know my story before he shot photos of my boyfriend and I for our first shoot together. I felt like he really understood the look and feel I was going for. He makes us look great (I've hired him more than once) and also authentic. Chris is also versatile. I've used him for professional product shots, lifestyle work, artistic installations, personal use, and corporate events. Most importantly, he's a total blast to work with. I couldn't recommend ChristopherChe Photography more.

I've been a member of Screen Actors Guild for 40 years and desperately needed new head shots. Paul took the time to understand what I needed, reviewed several locations and spent a half a day shooting several hundred shots from which I selected a half dozen. My agent told me that they were the best shots they had seen more importantly I was cast for several commercials based on the strength of the pictures Paul took. I strongly recommend Paul Grant Photography for any project you might have.
