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.

Nabor Godoy was fantastic. I needed a headshot for work on short notice. He more than delivered! He has a great studio in downtown San Francisco. I got there and he was ready. We went over lighting and backdrop options. I am not very good at smiling for the camera, but he brought out the best in me. He is good natured and talented! We did a series of shots and then paused to look. He and I talked about the work I do and agreed which photo was best. He said he’d work a bit on the shading and wow, two hours later I had it. It was great β€” better than I expected, and much better than anything I might ask a friend to do on an I-phone. Totally satisfied.

Lawrence Gerald provided an excellent service and at a reasonable price. He was timely, professional, and proved to be very skilled at what he does. The photos were amazing and he even threw in a slide show, which was equally great. I would highly recommend Lawrence to anyone looking for a professional photographer for whatever event. No complaints whatsoever.

Brian is the consummate professional....in a photographer that means he knows his camera, lens, lighting, (all high quality and state of the art), plus he has a calm, easygoing demeanor so his subjects are relaxed, confident and emotive, making for fantastic pictures. From one "headshot" photoshoot for four people, we got different poses, wardrobe changes and group shots. We had stern, funny, natural and everything.

Stavan and his team were the photographers and videographer at our wedding a couple of weeks ago in Gilroy CA. They were reliable, energetic, personable, very creative and professional in every way. The showed us on time. Every guest was impressed how approachable they were. We can't wait to see the photos! My wife is counting down the dates to get the pictures and I feel sure they are going to amaze us! I will return with more reviews after we get the pictures and videos.

We had our pre wedding photoshoot done by Diane and it was a great experience. We were visiting SF for a few days and were wondering if we will be able to capture the essence of the place in the photoshoot, but Diane drove us to the most beautiful places in the city and clicked lifelong memories. We had some pictures clicked with our friends as well and they came out really well. Diane was very flexible and it was fun spending the entire day with her. She made us really comfortable and helped us all along the photoshoot. I will highly recommend her to couples for their wedding and prewedding photoshoots.

Chantelle was AMAZING! She went above and beyond what I expected. I hired her to do my hair and makeup for my wedding. She showed up on time ready to go. Like always in a great mood. My makeup came out perfect and stayed on all night (noon to 1am). I switched my hair last minute and she had no issue with it and my husband loved it. She also helped out my bridesmaids with some eyeliner and even did a quick up do for another. My photographer called and said she was running late so she wouldn't be able to take any pics of me getting ready. I was a little bummed......BUT CHANTELLE HAD HER CAMERA. She started snapping away and was able to get the shots my photographer missed. Thank you so much Chantelle for making me look and feel incredible on my wedding day!

Steve had a relaxed presence that put me at ease when arriving to the studio. The studio was small, but was the equipment was very nice. I utilized his services to get acting headshots, and before beginning to take the pictures, he had a handy book that visually showed how good and bad headshots look. He effectively guided me through various poses, and I had a lot of fun the whole time! Oh, and the photos looked fantastic in the end. Overall, what you'll get from working with Steve is a kind and talented photographer who'll make sure you're getting the bang for your buck.

Nic came ahead of time on the day of the event. He coordinated well with the photographer. We hired him for the raw footage of the event and highlights video. He was very responsive over email, and provided raw footage of the event within a week. Highlight video contained well selected scenes.

JS Photography captured my daughter's birthday party so perfectly. They arrived 30 minutes early to mingle with me and my husband and even began taking photos for us. There were two photographers (Julian and Stephen) for the price of one! The event ran a little over and they stayed with no extra charge. These guys were truly the best photographers I have hired and will most definitely hire them again and recommend them to anyone looking for professional individuals who know how to have fun.

I was going to engage my girlfriend and being new in San Francisco I had no idea of where to find the perfect nature location. I asked Rob to do photography for me and he suggested the Perfect location for our big day and moment. The level of professionalism and patience he showed were out of this world. I will recommend him to anyone who requires a photographer. Thank you so much Rawkboy Media.
