Amazing job! Albert, our videographer was extremely professional. And Albert the owner was super! He came to our event and gave us photography services although I couldn't afford to purchase both photography & videography. Amazing team and will definitely book with them again!

Lawrence photographed our wedding on August 29, 2015. He drove all the way from the Bay Area to Shingle Springs, arrived early and stayed late! The photos (hundreds of them!) were beautiful, and his expertise is apparent. I highly recommend Clearlight Video and Photography for your special event!

I couldn't be more pleased with Patrick's photography service and the final delivered images. He visited our office a week prior in order to check out the space, and arrived early on photoshoot day to allow ample time for setup. He was pleasant and professional with each staff member, putting them at ease in front of the camera, and was even able to accommodate some last minute schedule changes. I appreciated how communicative and thorough he was with his process. We're already trying to book him for our next round of headshots for new team members. Thanks for all your work, Patrick!

Fashion photography. Cheshire photographed my styling event at the Trina Turk boutique with the Burlingame Mother's club. He did an amazing job of capturing the clothing and models in a their best light. The group shots of the ladies having fun were the best. The mother's club is going to be so happy to have them. Cheshire was professional, fun to work with, and did a great job. I am looking forward to working with him again for fashion photography projects!

Daryl was ‘THE’ kind of photography pro we were looking for, and just got so lucky to find him! He is the most friendly, having a great sense of humor that makes working with him so easy and comfortable. He’s extremely professional at his work, being proactive all through the evening, shooting pictures from all angles and high frequency, thereby not missing out on anything. We felt comfortable right from the word go, just seeing the set up he had around the hall when we first went in there. He’s a fun and warm person and makes everyone prepped up in no time for portraits, to get the best out of everyone. We will highly recommend him for any occasion it may be, and look forward working with him ourselves with him in future.

When I got engaged, my husband and I had a difficult time finding a good photographer. I had used Thumbtack as a vendor and decided to see if we could find a photographer from here. Choosing Kept In Time Photography was one of the greatest decisions we made for our wedding. Jenn was a joy to work with, and our second shooter took equally amazing photos. They were professional, and punctual, and they took our feedback, suggestions, and shot list seriously while still making our photos fun. They provide amazing quality photos for great value. I highly recommend reaching out to them for any of your special occasion photography.

Larry is amazing to work with! He knows his stuff and couldn't be a better teacher for someone who is just learning photography or for someone who has been practicing for years. We spent time reviewing the fundamentals and then went to go put what I had learned into practice by taking some shots. Highly recommend!!

We had TC do our family reunion photographs and WOW they were great! She really captures those moments of laughter, joy and yes even the tearful farewells. Her photography skills are really good and we kept her card so we could call her for future family events! She is very professional and I would recommend her to friends, family and co-workers. Gave us our photos within the contracted time so again a great job done!
