Great value for the price! Highly recommended if you want someone who knows what they are doing. We reviewed many different photographers and Sybex Studio really stood out from the rest. We were able to seal the deal with the awesome pricing. Thank you again Ruben for being very helpful.

Doug did our wedding at SF City Hall and we were very pleased with his services. He was much more affordable than most other photographers we considered and was very pleasant to work with. He showed up to the location a couple hours before we did just to prepare and make sure he knew all the best places to shoot. When we arrived he took pictures as we stepped out of the limo and then through the entire affair. We think the photos turned out great. He also charged one fee for the whole shoot, which was as low as others charged hourly. Overall very friendly, well prepared and provided professional services at an unbeatable price.

Sean was an excellent photographer. He was quick, courteous and amazing. He was able to come down to my office, and take an amazingly professional portrait photo with little notice, and had it edited even quicker. His photos were amazing and he was a pleasure to work with.

Nicholas did an amazing job capturing all of the special moments and details in our wedding with an articstic eye! Our friends and family are still raving about his work! He was also very accommodating and went above and beyond to film everything we asked for and more. Leading up to the wedding, he was always responsive immediately within the day if not hour and even after the wedding during the editing process he was like this! He has always been professional, polite, and friendly. He got along great with our photographer. He got our wedding video to us very quickly and edited everything beautifully while making sure to cleverly add in our special songs and props. If you are looking for someone professional, creative, friendly, accommodating, and affordable for your special occasions look no further!

Allan is of the best photographers I have ever worked with. His punctuality, friendly demeanor, faithfulness, and passion for capturing memories that will last a lifetime are his best qualities in business. He has all the right equipment, talent, and skill, and comes at a great price! I used him for my graduation photos and now use one of his photos for my linked in profile picture. He's an awesome guy and I'm really glad I hired him!

Mike and his wife Laura did our maternity photos on the beach. They got there early to setup and to pick the best locations to shoot. We had a great experience and the pics turned out great. Very affordable and would definitely recommend.

Hok was such a dream to work with for both our engagement and wedding photos. He is very responsive, kind, and flexible, so communication throughout the planning process was a breeze. Good communication was really important to us because we were planning our wedding from across the country! Hok also worked with our budget and we were able to get a package that was reasonably priced (and a great deal compared with other Bay Area photographers). Most importantly, Hok is a great person and his caring and thoughtfulness shows! Being someone who doesn't like photos taken of herself, I found Hok's warmth, humor, and genuine, down to earth nature very comforting and disarming. He really put us at ease. We feel so lucky to have found Hok and we highly recommend him to anyone looking to capture special moments!!

Ewa is a friendly, professional, and highly skilled photographer who did a great job capturing the energy and liveliness of our family of four during our photoshoot. Our boys are not the best at posing or behaving for photos, but Ewa did a great job of leading them, making them laugh and capturing spontaneous moments that perfectly show their spunkiness and energy. I would highly recommend Ewa if you want to capture the joys of your family in a fun, beautiful way.

Lynna is a dedicated and generous photographer. Her presence is kind, caring, thoughtful, and compassionate. She has a great attention to detail while still maintaining an air of humor, and is amazing at keeping things fun and creative. My whole family loves her, and all our family portraits are done by her. Lynna travels to us, and is always ready to try new concepts and locations. We are so grateful and feel so fortunate to have her share her abilities to capture every essence of our personalities and relationships.

Kavya could not have done a better job with our engagement photos! She was prompt to reply and arrange a rather quick appointment with us as we were on a deadline. She was friendly and professional throughout the shoot, providing the right amount of suggestions/tips to get the perfect shots without being overbearing. She is also quite adventurous, climbing down rocks with camera in hand to get to a beach in order to get the perfect shot! I ended up with so many great pictures that she sent within 2 days after the shoot. I would definitely recommended her for all your photography needs.

Well what can I say, Karman is a great photographer, person and friend. He makes you feel so comfortable in the skin you're in, you don't care if you're half naked in the process! He works with you on what you're comfortable with as well as after with the photo packages and what price range you can work with etc. Also I can't give enough props to Sara Dashty for her amazing hair and makeup for the shoot. She charges $120 for both, which is really good if your go to anyone else. She works fast and is very personable in the process. I love her! She is the sweetest and amazing at what she does. I love the before and after transformation. I have to shout out to Kamran's help team. I talked with Courtney, who gave me all the information I needed or would have asked about. She gave me all the answers in a very timely manner. I did two boudoir sessions. My first was last February for my now fiancés birthday present. After hair and makeup, the session lasted about 4 hours. It was long, but so worth it and I loved every minute of it. He helps you pick your outfits out and gives you advice as to what would look good etc. We ended up with over 300 photos that were great! How was I supposed to pick from them? lol I purchased individual photos and my Fiancé loved his present and still to this day shows everyone that he can! It's funny, but I'm used to it now. I had such a great time last time, my fiancé said I should get another session. So I did and again, Kamran didn't disappoint. I brought different outfits this time and wanted to try a few things differently, and he said let's go for it and he always gets excited when you're excited. The shoot went great and I'm glad we did different poses, outfits and a few different ideas. The photos look great and I can't wait to get the prints! My fiancé is going to fall in love all over with me again when he see these photos! I didn't think I could do modeling before, but now everyone tells me I could totally do modeling, because of the photos by Kamran! I feel more invincible, sexy, womanly and ready to pounce, on my man! lol Thank you Kamran for amazing photos yet again and giving me even more self-confidence than before! I highly recommend stepping out of your comfort zone and just book a session with Kamran. He will make it worth your time

Wayne was great! He met us on a Saturday. Gave us a timeline and finished even before his estimate. We are very happy we had him restore this very old family photograph from the 1920's that was damaged. Definitely recommend!

After speaking with a few local photographers, Chris not only had the cleanest/well working website but he also left the best impression over the phone. Very personable and easy to communicate with. He was also able to fit me in the next day (Friday) to do my business portraits. Doing a photo shoot like this was way out of my comfort zone however, Chris made it fun and easy. Not only that but he had the proofs for me to review within a few hours of the end of our session. Not to my surprise the quality of the pictures, lighting and setting were top notch. I will recommend GoodEye Photogrpahy whenever possible and will continue to work with Chris moving forward. 5 stars and nothing less

About

I am a lifestyle photographer that specializes in Elopements, Engagements, and Couples sessions on the coast of California, primarily in Big Sur. I pride myself on natural, intimate events and showcasing the emotion that transpires throughout the day. Though most elopements and sessions are booked with short notice, I try to get to know my clients as best possible about a week prior to their shoot, so I can be sure to capture their true emotion on the camera.
