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 and Melinda went above and beyond for my wedding. It rained on my wedding day but that didn't stop our photographers from taking beautiful rain shots, it actually added to the magic! We originally wanted photos at the Palace of Fine Arts but that wouldn't have worked out with the rain, so we came up with a plan B after the wedding ceremony and Doug was flexible with the sudden change. Later that day, my mother and my aunt could not figure out how to pin my bustle, Melinda stepped in like a pro and saved the day! Not only are they great photographers but they really helped us keep the flow of the wedding. We saw a preview of our wedding photo gallery and it was beautiful, we cannot wait to see all of the photos and create our album. We especially loved the candid shots during the wedding ceremony as well as the rain shots.

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.

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!

They were AWESOME! They brought on a third photographer to help when they realized the size of the wedding events. They made suggestions where they knew better with their expertise and it worked out better than perfect - I.e. when the best time to take family photos. They were on time and ready to go with very creative pictures. I haven’t received my photos or video yet (it’s onky been 1 month today) but I have no doubt they will blow me away. THANK YOU!!!

I hired Mementostrip for a company party over the weekend in Santa Cruz. ALL of my fellow employees were very pleased with the service provided, and the photobooth added the FUN to my event! From my initial inquiry, to background format set-up, to night of the event, Bao, Joe and Marissa were very professional and supportive. I had zero worries about this vendor and I WILL use Mementostrip again for sure, 110% ! THANK YOU to the entire Mementostrip team! Chris- Santa Cruz, CA

Ms. Basco made extra time to meet with us prior to the event to ask questions and hear preferences for the shoot. During the event, she subtly moved through the crowd and captured a lot of great candid shots. For posed photos, she showed excellent patience with a LOT of people, and took it in stride when guests asked her to take pictures with their phones (even though they definitely should not have bothered her with that when there were 70 people standing around). We were pleased with her eagerness to please her clients. Her photos are lovely.

I have been using Meeta as our photographer for various family events and even my friends have been impressed by her work and she has recently worked for some of my friends also. I have known Meeta for over a year and I see that she has consistently done a very good job in all the events I have attended. I would like to add that she is very up-to-date with latest technologies in terms of photo editing and her latest work shows her making full use of that. She is very sweet natured and she tries to understand how the party is going and makes sure that all guests are photographed and she quietly does her job like a good friend at the party.

Bradyn is professional, builds great rapport with the kids, and made our fall family foto day a fun experience. We have had many photographers take some pictures of our family over the years and her photos were the best! Photos were drop boxed that evening, highly recommend.

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!

STOP reading this review and hire Paulina immediately! She is so professional, responsive, punctual, and technically great that it is hard to believe that she could be so warm, personable, and reassuring too! From the moment we met Paulina, we knew we were going to hire her. Her bubbly personality and enthusiasm made us even more excited for our own event. On the day of our wedding, she was perfectly on time and directed us through a beautiful and fun "first look." Sometimes it feels awkward to have a photographer taking pictures through an event, but Paulina integrated so well into the crowd that everyone thought that she was one of our friends...at the end of the evening no one wanted her to go! I'm sure that there are many good photographers out there for hire, but if you want someone truly special, who will be part of your team, and make your special day even more special, then look no further. She is truly one of a kind. Thank you Paulina!!!

Lynna is completely amazing and we definitely plan to use her services for our next family photo shoot. We planned for another location, but due to rain we had a make a quick plan B the night before. She was so flexible in making sure we would have the correct venue for the shots, especially since I only wanted outdoor shots. We opted for Stanford's campus since they have large overhangs to protect us from the rain and with the natural light and architecture, it was perfect. She gave us good direction, which can be hard with a photo shoot of 3 sets of family- grandparents, two sons with their wives and 3 toddlers! She handled all the personalities seamlessly and made everyone feel comfortable and heard. We did many traditional family shots, but my favorites were the candid shots. She was able to capture the candid, pure smiles, and laughs of my daughters; to me, that is priceless and the main reason for hiring a photographer instead of the big box photo studio type pictures. She took many shots so we had dozens to choose from, it actually made it tough to narrow down what we would put on our Christmas cards and blow up for wall decorations! Lynna is the best at capturing life! Thank you, Lynna!
