Neither of us had experienced being photographed formally before, unless you're counting work headshots (and I'm not), so trying to find a wedding photographer was a little intimidating. I spent a number of years on the east coast as part of an informal photography group that had several professionals as members... so we went into the search feeling pretty confident that we knew what we were looking for... and I'm happy to say we found it. Michael's documentary style suited us perfectly. We had to reschedule our park-setting engagement shoot about four times because it rained so much here last winter and Michael was flexible, informal, easy to work with, didn't make us feel awkward or odd while posing, and clearly loves his work. We had fun! When the wedding day arrived, he was prompt, friendly, and kept up with our rather unique event. He was so kind with family while posing us after the ceremony, and he was both creative and efficient with the shots of us as a couple also - we weren't rushed, and we made it to the cocktail hour! The shots of our first dance (we'd learned to swing dance for the occasion) are some of my favorites, as well - the angles he picked were perfect. He knew how to be unobtrusive, but also when to speak up to cue us for a specific shot. Best of all, the photos were edited and back to us even faster than he'd promised them. Michael's a quality human, making quality photos... we'd highly recommend him to anyone!

I used Stylebee for both hair and makeup for my engagement session in SF. Chantelle and Stylebee were so wonderful and flexible (I changed my appointment to a super early 4:30am start - yikes!). Shannon was my MUA and hair stylist - She arrived right on time and did such an amazing job. I don't think I've ever looked so glamorous! She made me feel so beautiful and confident for my engagement photos. Highly recommended!! Thank you, ladies!!

I engaged with and hired Patrick to assist with twelve corporate headshots. Patrick was punctual, professional and put each subject at ease - allowing for the best end product. He was also extremely accessible and flexible during the photo editing process. I would highly recommend Patrick and will definitely look to use him again.

Cheshire is a stand up guy. He's very professional, clear, communicative, and generous with his time. I had some headshots taken, and it was my first time. He walked me through the process. There were no surprises. We spent an afternoon together, and he was communicative about giving me feedback along the way. He's also just a super nice guy, who I enjoyed speaking with during our time together. I would recommend him to anyone!

My daughter was turning 18 and going to be a Senior in high school. We're from Virginia and traveled to San Francisco to visit family. I wanted to have my daughter's Senior portrait in the San Francisco area such as having the background of the Golden Gate Bridge and Baker Beach. Unfortunately, it's a hit or miss with the fog and wind in the city. I brought this up to Justin and he was able to recommend other places. Justin was prompt with responding with the many email exchanges. When we met at Central Park, he was there with his assistant. It was a beautiful day in San Mateo. He took pictures in the gazebo at the rose garden and the Japanese Garden. By the way it's the Japanese Garden's 50th anniversary this year. The second place for the photo shoot was the Pulgas Water Temple. The last time I was there was 26 years ago when my husband and I had our wedding pictures taken there. Justin took some great photos there too with the reflective pool. From there we drove to Moss Beach in Half Moon Bay. The trees surrounding the place were picturesque. Olivia changed into a different outfit. Her outfit was fitting for the color of the place. The slight breeze featured a wind blown flow with her hair and blouse. Justin also took a few headshot pictures of my other daughter and of us as a family. Early that evening he sent me a couple of pictures to see. They were magnificent. A few days later we were able to download the photos. Overall, we were very happy with the quality of the photos he took.

I hired SFImagery (Rick) to take some headshots. I am not the type of person who practices their smile in the mirror or makes any special effort when posing for pictures. So, I was not exactly nervous about getting some corporate head shots, but I was not looking forward to it. Rick was great. He made everything very easy, from scheduling the session to the actual shoot. He paid meticulous attention to lighting, positioning, clothing, etc., and he made me feel very comfortable. Best of all, the pictures turned out great, which of course, is what really matters.

Johnny is very professional and made me feel completely at ease during my headshots. Johnny adapted the photographs to the changing light of the day, weather, and discovered beautiful and natural backdrops that highlighted my outfits perfectly.

I’ve known Steven and had seen his work for many years. When it was time for me to get headshots done I naturally thought of him. His work was everything I expected it to be. The morning we spent shooting was more like hanging out with an old friend which made it easy to poise for him. You can tell Steven enjoys his work and it comes thru in the final product.

KaliMa took incredible photos of my residency performance in June. Even though there was a mix-up in location, she captured some essential footage for my future artistic pursuits.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
