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!

Cindy was amazing. I hired her to photograph our engagement in Napa. I was from out of town and did not know the area. I picked a park near our hotel. Cindy got to the park early to scout the location. She found that it wasn't ideal and scouted a new location that was PERFECT! She really went the extra mile. On top of that the photos look perfect and she got them to us the next day. Would recommend Cindy for any event.

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!

Eric and his assistant, Claire were so professionally unobtrusive during my daughter’s wedding event, I did not even notice they were there. The proof of their presence is in the captivating candid photos and the beautiful artistic photos that recorded the entire day. Everyone looks amazing. Eric perfectly captured the unique personalities of the bride and groom throughput the day. I was not able to meet Eric until the day of the wedding because I live overseas. I chose based upon his portfolio and online communication. What could have been a series of pretty pictures of a cookie cutter country club wedding with another photographer is instead a perfect blend of photojournalism, fine art, and traditional styles, Eric’s and Claire’s work show the very present, palpable feelings between the bride and groom. Perfect.

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!

We hired Ananda for a last minute decision to have a wedding in November. We planned our wedding in 2 months time! Ananda was perfect! Because of our last minute decision, we were not planning to take any engagement photos, but she made it super easy for us. She is located in Sacramento. Our wedding was to be held in Sacramento, but we live in the Bay Area. She was nice enough to meet us in San Francisco to take our engagement photos! We appreciated her organization and time management. Prior to the wedding, she emailed us a questionnaire asking where will the bride get ready, who are the bridesmaids/groomsmen/parents of the bride and groom etc., addresses of the reception/venue. This was reassuring. She was punctual. This was important to us to have someone who is timely! During the wedding, she took many candid photos in which we loved. She also took pictures of the guests as they waited for the bride and groom to enter the ceremony and reception area. Those photos were awesome. We actually developed them and sent them along with our Thank-You Cards. The quality of her photos are extraordinary! Top notch! She was able to get the pictures back to us in 2 weeks time after the wedding. Even faster for the engagement photos. I believe it was 3-4 days. She is also very very sweet! She gave us a wedding gift as well as a baby gift as my husband and I are expecting! -Clark and Erica Torres

Steven was amazing from the beginning. We booked last minute after another photographer flaked on us and I could not be happier with our destiny. He showed up before us and already had a plan. We did a civil ceremony at city Hall then a casual gathering at Delores Park a few days later. While at city Hall, not only did he know all the amazing spots, but also knew not only how to get around, but also was able to guide us for all the technical stuff with the county clerk. One of the best ways that he excelled was getting our crazy family to smile and follow directions. Everyone commented on how nice and effortless it was to work with him. The other great thing I loved that was within a few hours he emailed me with a handful of pics to use to post on our social media! I am beyond grateful that Steven shot our special day. Thank you Steven!!!
