Lawrence was terrific to work with. He went well above and beyond the initial request to provide me with an excellent experience and portfolio of photos to enjoy for the rest of my life. Lawrence took photos of a surprise proposal for my now fiancee. He offered to meet me in SF the day before the date of the event to map out the plan in person together. He arrived 30 minutes early on the day of the event and snapped 100+ excellent & candid photos of the proposal. He then stayed with us for another hour after the proposal to take more staged engagement photos, and even met us again later that evening to capture different lighting and allow us to change clothes. The initial quote was simply for an hour of his time on the day of the proposal.

I can't say enough how happy we are with Michael as our wedding photographer. He did both our engagement photos and our wedding photos and, although it is still too soon for us to have gotten all of our wedding photos back yet I am confident they will come out amazing (just like our engagement photos did and the sneak peak photo of our wedding that he has already sent us). In addition to skills as a photographer I would also recommend michael for his laid back and fun personality that really helped us to just relax and be normal on our wedding day!

Cindy was amazing. I hired her to photograph our engagement in Napa. I was from out of town and did not know the area. I picked a park near our hotel. Cindy got to the park early to scout the location. She found that it wasn't ideal and scouted a new location that was PERFECT! She really went the extra mile. On top of that the photos look perfect and she got them to us the next day. Would recommend Cindy for any event.

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.

Adam and Hanna were an absolute pleasure to work with during our engagement photography session! Their flexibility and genuine desire to provide us with an amazing end result was obvious throughout our time together. They were priced fairly and very responsive at all stages of working with one another. We highly recommend them to anybody in need of photography services!

Andrea shot engagement photos for us recently, and we loved working with her. She met us at an obscure beach, waded across a creek and stuck with us through wind and cold to capture incredible moments that we'll treasure forever. We showed her a few inspiration shots on Pinterest and she reproduced several to a tee. Not only was the outcome more than we hoped for, Andrea was a joy to spend the day with. She's prompt, friendly, has a great eye, incredibly quick turnaround and very affordable. Can't recommend her enough!

We loved everything about working with Jen! She was very professional and did a great job of guiding the show and keeping all of our many friends and family on task during pre-ceremony photos. Judging from our engagement photos and from the two preview photos we've received of our wedding thus far, the quality of her photographs is also awesome. I would absolutely recommend her to other brides and grooms without reservation.

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!

We hired Larry for our company event, he is very responsible, provides great work with excellent price. A lot of other photographers will try make extra by not providing a full service, with him all the planning and post editing are included. Larry is also great that when we were setting up the venue, he arrived early to help, as well as staying late to help us clean up. Great guy!

I booked Lara to take my engagement photos. I'm usually awkward in front of the camera but she made my husband and me feel very comfortable. She was able to get some amazing pictures of us, some romantic, others fun, serious, etc. I was crunched for time and unfortunately didn't take her up on her offer to meet at one of the better locations she suggested: Fort Funston or Chrissy Field. Instead, we shot on the sidewalk in front of our apartment building. The pictures turned out better than I could have ever expected! Lara was such a pleasure to work with. She sent us the digital copies almost immediately (I'm sure there were a few she chose not to send, eyes closed, etc.).

Thank you Avant-Garde for capturing the most important parts of our event!!! Not only was our engagement beautifully photographed, the little details that most photographers leave out were not missed. His pricing is very fair and affordable. I have him booked for my upcoming wedding in May as well.

Michelle put a ton of work into our engagement photo shoot and was simply amazing. She went above and beyond in every step of this process and I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. She is really sweet, makes it fun, and helps you plan out your vision for what you want in the shoot. I’m extremely happy with the quality and quantity of the pictures she took and I will treasure them forever. I 100% recommend her for any of your photography needs.

What an amazing photography experience!!! Helpful from day one on the phone, through the end of our proposal/engagement photos in SF! Coming from Dallas, her communication via phone, email was excellent! Very willing to coordinate and make sure things went just as planned for this surprise proposal while in town... AND THE PHOTOS and time and effort she put in to the shoot and afterwards was phenomenal!!! Made the tremendous and excited moment of getting engaged in SF that much better when seeing the amazing photos she pulled off. Very professional, nice, kind, and an absolute pleasure to work with! HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
