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!

I hired Lawrence to do some videography and photography of a special event. He did a great job that exceeded my expectations in terms of quality and professionalism, and it was delivered to me in a timely manner. He was a delight for me to work with and was also well liked by others participating in the event. I therefore highly recommend Lawrence and would hire him again without hesitation.

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 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!

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.

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!

Denny is a gem! He took on my project of digitizing the "memory boxes" of our three grown children with great enthusiasm and care. He approached the project very thoughtfully and his work product exceeded my expectations. He worked very quickly and was very communicative via e-mail and text message. He is a pleasure to work with and I would use him again for any type of photography related project I have.

We initially reached out to Rick because we liked the work on his website. We decided to move forward with Rick for a home family photo session because of our connection through a phone conversation, his professionalism and responsiveness. Rick was fantastic to work with for number reasons. He was open to accommodate our fixed schedule, was friendly, prompt and full of suggestions. I let him know I was not sure about what background we should use letting him know that it could be a couple different locations on the property. That did not concern him and he ended up bringing a lot of photography equipment beyond cameras and lenses. What stood out about Rick the most was his generosity regarding his time. He was extremely patient and really wanted for us to feel relaxed, comfortable and confident that we had the shots we wanted before he left. Not only do I recommend Rick but I will certainly use him again.
