Lawrence handled the photography of our wedding with energy and enthusiasm. His outlook was as if our wedding was the only wedding in the world. When my wife was talking to him about the food we were serving, Lawrence listened politely and I could see an idea was taking shape in his mind. When my wife finished what she was saying, Lawrence raised his camera and said "Could you remain right there in front of the rose bush for a moment?" This man lives, sleeps and dreams photo angles. The unending quest for another perfect shot, with the perfect lense, under the perfect lighting. When Lawrence heard that my wife and I met in a dispute over my sappy walnut tree, Lawrence searched the ground in my backyard to find a couple of black walnuts left over from the tree that had been removed ten years ago. I knew nothing of this until I watched the slide show he made for us. As the last guitar chord faded away, the display showed our wedding program, with the story of the black walnut printed on it. At the base of the program were the two black walnuts that Lawrence had retreived. Photography is more than a job to Lawrence Gerald, it is his passion. His artistic nature is evident in his photography. The theme of our wedding was a 1930s themed wedding. I rented a cutaway coat, top hat , cane and white gloves. My wife wore antique pearls. Mr. Gerald started our slide show with a creative photo of my top hat , cane and gloves on the table. Draping down from my hat was my wife's pearl necklace, which framed a napkin we had printed with our names and an art deco design. A white rose was arranged on the hat and both of our wedding rings were in the foreground at the base of the hat. This 1930's style photo captured the essence of our wedding theme. Lawrence's work did not end with the wedding. He went through thousands of photos he took and gave us the best 1,500. Our families and friends were included in all of the group shots. His personable nature made it easy to gather around him for posed photos. I would look no further for an excellent photographer to have at an important event. Lawrence is an amazing individual and photographer!
Kuks did the most incredible job shooting photos for my best friend's very private rooftop wedding. The photos came out beautifully and perfectly captured the magic of the event. The whole experience was totally relaxed and natural-we never felt like we were 'posing for the camera'. He was able to catch such sweet intimate moments of the ceremony completely candidly. I am so glad that I have his contact info for future events and I will absolutely recommend him to my friends for their photography needs. 5 stars!
I hired Jeff to photographed our 50th wedding anniversary celebration of 63 people. He discussed the event several times in advance. He arrived 30 minutes before the posed fmaily pictures were takes to set identify scenic background at winery in Napa and set up proper lighting for the scene which was heavely backlit. He took posed pictures of 11 family members in various groupings, informal pictures at reception and during dinner and at Renewal of Weddding Vow ceremony. Picture were very good- sharp and good lighting. He composed 3 different albums for members of the family and was very quick in re-arranging the order of the pictures and making requested edit. . He was very professional to work with and guests enjoyed having him take their picture. He was very prompt ( within 3 days) in posting on his website a gallery of about 100 pictures of the event, which guests can review , download and order prints. He completed composing 3 different albums in 10 days. I was very pleased and recommend Jeff for event photography.
Martino could not have provided my husband and I with a more perfect day of photography for our wedding. He was very personable and very accommodating. He offered transportation for us to and from all our destinations. We made it all the way to City Hall and realized we didn't have our driver's license so he took my husband back to the hotel, no hesitation. The photos turned out amazing and the app he provides is the perfect tool for sharing. We could not have asked for a better photographer.
I was very pleased with Ilya's videography services recording my conference speech and editing the video into a finished product.
We used Usman Baporia Photography for videography for our Wedding in May 2016. Usman was very considerate and professional throughout the process. Phone calls and emails were informative, professional and efficient. On the day of, we barely noticed he was there filming. He was able to capture the key moments we wanted to remember. A lot of our friends and family reached out to us and expressed how much they enjoyed the end product.
Even though he fell sick right before our wedding, Donald still showed up to work his magic on the day. I was so grateful, his work is top-notch and I can't wait to see our wedding video!! Thank you l again!
Jim was very friendly, easy to work with and I have some great photos of our wedding reception and posed pictures with our bridal party. I would use him again.
They were amazing . So polite, helpful, and early to set up. They made my wedding, and I would recommend them over anyone else because of the customer service you get. They had awesome props, so many to choose from. They also were a awesome !!! great price for the unlimited prints and an awesome photo book for the bride and groom at the end of the night, which was funny to see.
We hired Minea for our Wedding Vow Renewal/30 year Anniversary. She is a true professional. She was on time, fully equipped and blended in. We received our Highlights DVD and raw footage per our contract. The DVD was extremely beautiful! Minea's great eye and talent really shown! We love it! The raw footage was complete! She didn't miss a thing. We highly recommend her for any video needs! J & S Mascardo Elk Grove, CA
We worked with Jim for our wedding video, and he did an excellent job from beginning to end. For something so special as this, we wanted to be sure we hired somebody that we could trust, and that was open to the particular style that we wanted to accomplish. Jim was very responsive to our initial inquiry, and made sure to set up time where we could meet or facetime to discuss our vision. We were happy to learn that Jim had tons of experience in wedding videography. He answered all of our questions, and also gave us ideas and insights as to how other brides and grooms have set up their videos. He was a terrific listener and took to heart our preferences. He communicated with us regularly before the wedding, and on the wedding day showed up right on time to kick things off. He was not intrusive at all and fit right into the flow of the day. The shots he was able to get as a one-man show were terrific you'd think he had a whole team with him!! He captured the beauty of the day, the venue, the feelings before, during and after the ceremony, the guests, the fun, everything!!! We were extra appreciative that our wedding had an unexpected delay before the reception, and Jim stuck around like a trooper and didn't miss a beat. We were so pleased watching the final video, that this is something we will treasure for the rest of our lives. Talk about great value. As somebody unfamilar with videography, I felt nervous about picking the right vendor, but feel very lucky that we stumbled across Jim. Highly recommend!
We hired the best wedding photography ensemble ever! Alex was absolutely phenomenal!!! We couldn't be happier with the level of professionalism, creative excellence, innovation and unique aesthetic design. Thank you for making me feel like a princess on the most important day of my life! :)
Annie filmed and took photos for my Parent's 50th wedding anniversary and everything came out spectacular! She was very affordable, friendly, professional, and prompt. We got our photos right away and she did a wonderful job editing and putting together the video footage of such a special day. I highly recommend her.
We got married in August 2016 and used Diamond Sonic for our DJ. Liam was a pleasure to work with! He met with us before the wedding and really listened to what we wanted in terms of music. At the wedding itself, everyone had so much fun- Liam played a great selection of songs, and literally got some of our 80+-year-old guests out there on the dance floor!! Go Liam!!! His speakers were very impressive- our only complaint were at one point, they were so impressive that it was a bit hard to hear conversation over them- but when we went up to him and asked him to lower the music a little, he was great about doing that. Liam is a huge part of why our wedding was such a fantastic day- would definitely recommend him.
Nick is insanely talented in videography and photography. He's a consummate professional - polite, communicative, warm, and always makes all the subjects - and his clients - feel at ease. I have hired him for more than 6 jobs and they've ranged from a conceptual video, to an extended multi-day photoshoot, to a quick video editing job. No matter what he does, he does it with an attention to detail and creative energy that makes his work unique and beautiful. I really can't say enough nice or positive things about him, as in the three years we've been working together I have never had even an inkling of a negative experience. I have been a communications director for over 15 years in the Bay Area, I've hired and worked with dozens and dozens of creative professionals, and I can without hesitation say he's one of the best I've ever worked with. He's so technically and creatively talented that even if he was a diva to work with, or difficult in some way, I think I would hire him anyway because what he delivers is so high-quality. But thankfully he's just a genuinely extremely kind human being who also happens to be a creative genius. He'll be your new go-to person for art direction, photography, and videography.
Brent and the Octillo Weddings team were extremely helpful in accommodating the look and feel of my wedding video. He took the time to understand my requests and the video was exactly how I envisioned it to be. I love that I can go back and watch it and re-live the best day of my life over and over again.
Thank-you so much Gary for being apart of our wedding. At our wedding you did an excellent job, since viewing our wedding video you blew our minds. You captured all of our favorite moments and then some. This video will be something we will cherish for a lifetime. You have a true gift that we are glad we got to experience. Much appreciation and love.....From Mr.& Mrs. Nichols.
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
The wedding video La Luna created for us was absolutely amazing. The footage was so fun and beautiful and was edited perfectly to summarize our most favorite day. The more we watch it, the more we love it. Nico also worked quickly, we were able to see our video soon after our wedding. I highly recommend La Luna for wedding (and other special occasion) videos.
It was such a pleasure working with Laura and Erica. They were extremely professional and so easy to work with. The finished product was amazing. They listened to our requirements and gave some very valuable input to our band video project. I would highly recommend them for your all of your videography needs!!
