Albert took my profile photos and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a profile photographer. He was very professional and very easy to work with. The photos far exceeded my expectation, and the price was relatively friendly.
(SPANISH BELOW) I want to highly recommend Nabor for your next photography project. I was contacted by my book editor asking for a head sot for my next novel. I live in Petaluma, CA and after looking at the rates of local photographers I tried this website. I obtained several bids and since I know very little about photography I asked my son for his opinion (he does photography for fun). After looking at the work of the people who sent bids he advised me that Nabor's work was the best "hands down". I negotiated with Nabor and he traveled to Petaluma to take the photos. We met early in the morning and when I got there he was already waiting for me. I was immediately impressed with his professional demeanor and flexibility. We walked around town and he knew exactly where the right background was. I knew then I was working with an artist. The love for his work is apparent in the photos he took. He got it right from the third photo but went on to take 191 photos!!!. The difficult part for me has been having to decide on just one photo. Nabor is definitely the best photographer I have ever worked with. There is something else beautiful about Nabor and that is that his first language is Spanish which is also my first language. It was truly a pleasurable experience to collaborate with someone passionate about his work. His photo will be a blessing to my novel. Thank you Nabor. (IN SPANISH) Quiero recomendar altamente Nabor para su próximo proyecto de fotografía. Mi editor de libros me pidió una fotografía reciente y profesional para mi próxima novela. Yo vivo en Petaluma, California, y después de mirar los precios de fotógrafos locales decidí probar este sitio web. Obtuve una serie de ofertas y puesto que sé muy poco acerca de la fotografía le pregunté a mi hijo su opinión (él hace la fotografía por diversión). Después de ver el trabajo de las personas que enviaron las propuestas mi hijo me aconsejó que el trabajo de Nabor era el mejor "sin comparación". Negocié con Nabor y viajó a Petaluma para tomar las fotos. Nos encontramos temprano en la mañana y cuando llegué ya me estaba esperando. Me impresionó inmediatamente su profesionalismo y su flexibilidad. Caminamos por el pueblo y él eligió el escenario perfecto para las fotos, sin durarlo mucho. Entonces supe que estaba trabajando con un artista. El amor por su trabajo es evidente en las fotos que tomó. Desde la tercera foto ya había cumplido con su encomienda y sobrepasado mi expectativa, pero siguió trabajando hasta tener ¡ 191 fotos !!!. La parte difícil para mí ha sido decidir en una sola foto. Nabor es sin duda el mejor fotógrafo con quien he trabajado. Hay algo todavía más bello de Nabor y es que su primer idioma es el español, que también es mi primera lengua. Fue realmente una experiencia agradable colaborar con alguien apasionado por su trabajo. Su foto será una bendición para mi novela. Gracias Nabor.
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.
Amazing time with Michael Keel. His quality and work ethic are second to none. Comparable price to most high quality photographers. Professional in all the right sense. We would book him for any other event should we need professional photography done. Legit, thanks Michael.
Thomas Sparks is an amazing photographer. His eye for lighting and positioning is exceptionally skilled, he captures precious moments that many photographers may not catch. He has tremendously creative, easy to work with and affordable. Can't say enough about this photographer! You won't be disappointed.
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.
Jeff was smart, prepared, and professional. I selected him over other photographers because my impression was that he approached a job with the customer's needs at heart, and his work at our event certainly bore that out. He communicated well, was unobtrusive and helpful, and oh by the way he took some wonderful pictures of people engaged and working together at our event. You will enjoy working with Jeff, I promise.
Diane always responded quickly, to my questions. She came onsite and was very thorough. Her work was superior to other drone vendors we have used in the past. The stills arrived in 1 day, and the edited video took less than 3 days.
I've hired Danial Blue for my architecture photography. having one of the best photographers in the industry, is such a pleasure knowing that I'll receive professional and prompt service! Highly recommended
Jennifer was the best photographer and witness my husband and I could have wished for. My husband and I got eloped at the San Francisco City Hall in February 2017. Jen was our photographer and sole witness. She was very helpful in guiding us around the city hall and she took the most beautiful and sincere pictures! My husband and I aren't very "romantic" or extroverted, so we were worried that we'd be put in cheesy awkward poses for our wedding pictures. But that wasn't the case at all! Jen was able to pick up on our personalities very quickly and she was able to feature the real us through her camera lens. Her experience, professionalism, and down to earth personality relaxed our wedding jitters and made us completely at ease. She was the perfect complement to our wedding day. I highly recommend Jen for any event :)
Cheshire did a wonderful job shooting my business headshots. He is great to work with and a consummate pro. I frequently hire photographers for promotion campaigns, corporate communications and events and I will definitely be contacting Cheshire for the next assignment.
Great service and photographer!
I had to do a short congratulatory video for a friend who is collecting a major award at the Cannes Festival. I come from the ad industry so I'm used to working with filmmakers, photographers etc; I found Ilja to be totally professional, easy to work with (even when I switched the brief) and affordable. He also has a good eye for lighting and performance. Would I use him again? Absolutely.
James is one of the finest talents ever in the fashion and beauty photography genre. I have known him and his work for years. The images he creates, never cease to amaze me in quality and range, and in the creativity they display. He is great with his models, knowing just how to create that moment. Always getting the models, Hair & Make-up, stylists etc, to be at their very best. He also does his own retouching and imaging. This is the icing on the creative cake. He sees these images to completion, fulfilling the creative vision that he has at the onset of a shoot. Lets face it, anyone can retouch these days. But those photographers that can put that true creative polish on an shot, delivering an amazing image from the onset of a shoot to final art, are the best of the best. In my opinion, James is one of the very best.
I've hired many photographers in the past for various events such as wedding, corporate parties and other events and William J Simpson trumps all of them by far! I knew I would enjoy his artistic take on photography and I love his eye for great moments and angles. Who knew it would take a first birthday party to finally find the right photographer! :) He was very punctual, responded quickly to my emails, and such a joy to work with during the event. Professional and personal at the same time. You won't regret hiring him for your next project or event. I know I'll be coming back to him for future events!
My client needed an on-site photographer/videographer that was based in the Sacramento area, and Donald from Up Logic Media was the perfect fit for what we needed. Finding a professional you can trust to get the job done can be a nerve-racking, but Up Logic Media surpassed our expectations by a landslide.
Ashleigh is a true professional. In the two hours we had her, she captured all the requested shots plus many impromptu special moments. Her personality and kindness is what separates her from other photographers I have worked with in the past. Many friends and family members commented on her cheerfulness and smile. Her photos are as beautiful as she is. We all enjoyed having her here on our special day. I would hire Ashleigh again for any corporate or private function that I have in the future.
Pleasure working for such a top-notch professional photographer!
I asked Steven to take my Graduation Photos this past May (2017). I was attracted to his dramatic style and was even more impressed with the final photos. Steven's professionalism shone through and made working with him a breeze. He works hard to make sure customers like the photos they are getting -- he asked about what kind of poses I was comfortable with, discussed what colors/style I was looking for, and continuously shared the photos he took throughout the shoot for feedback. He was very accommodating to my numerous requests (which included asking for photos at extra angles, re-taking photos to fix even the most minute details) and was patient in trying new poses and ideas. His attention to detail helped elevate the quality of the final product. This was exemplified during the shoot, through his simple suggestions on how to fix poses, as well as after, when the final photos demonstrated his strong eye for color. Furthermore, having worked with multiple photographers in the past, I have come to realize that being comfortable with the photographer is extremely important for truly natural, candid photos. Steven is both friendly and funny; I didn't feel awkward in front of the camera or too "pose-y." I believe the example photos I attached below show how much fun I had shooting with him! +++, 10/10, would recommend!! I look forward to working with Steven again in the future :)
I don't even know where to begin. Melissa was FANTASTIC! I joked with her that she was the best decision I made for my wedding day aside from marrying my husband. She was a pleasure to talk to leading up to the event to help plan out the day. She went straight to work and was not disruptive at all, if anything she made our day more enjoyable. Such a positive spirit to be around, everyone in my family loved her presence. She wasn't pushy and let us do our own thing but gave us input and advice on where and how to pose. She gave me my photos faster than I could even process my wedding day! I AM OBSESSED with my pictures. They look ethereal because of her special touch with lighting and glow. If you're looking for a photographer for any event, you can stop looking and hire Melissa now!
Frank was our photographer for our wedding at the iconic city hall in San Francisco. Working with Frank was a pleasure and we couldn't be happier with the results. The images he took of our ceremony and of us as a family in city hall are now cherished heirlooms. Frank was professional throughout the entire process, he was the first person to arrive at city hall (he was early) and he took a creative approach throughout, not only taking photos of the ceremony but he also took beautiful shots of the the environment and candid photos of our family going with us through the whole process. Upon completion of the ceremony Frank promptly shared with us the results which included not only the raw camera files, but a complete set of color corrected and edited photos. The results are stunning. I highly recommend working with Frank should you need a photographer. Jhanette, Oakland, CA
