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.

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!

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!

Mike did a great job capturing my proposal to my girlfriend. I wanted to propose during sunset in Carmel somewhere with view of the ocean, but wasn't too familiar with the area. Mike offered to scope out a couple spots and we decided on a very private area with a spectacular view. He was very easy to work with and extremely quick to respond to my emails. Since it was a surprise, Mike and his wife arrived early to stake out the spot and looked like any other couple at the beach taking photos. They captured every moment of my proposal and took a few shots afterwards (she said yes!). I got the pictures the next day and they turned out great! So happy with the experience, and would highly recommend Mike.

Looking for a wedding photographer on line, my fiancé and I were drawn to the pictures taken by Lorinda Keller, the owner of 831images. Amazingly, she was available on our wedding day. All of her reviews raved her praises. All the reviews were spot on, Lorinda more than exceeded our high expectations. Due to prior changes in our wedding day schedule Lorinda accommodated us by splitting our day into two sessions so that we could get all the photo coverage we wanted but still stay within our budget. This allowed us to have photos of our ceremony and with our guests. We did not have to disappear and leave our guest to get our couple photos. Lorinda made a special trip to return later so that we could do our couple shots after our guests had left and during the ideal sunset lighting. Getting everything we wanted within our limited budget was an exceptional gift. Lorinda also surprised us with returning with printed pictures from the ceremony. She even presented us with a beautifully framed photo capturing our happy moment. Everyone was so shocked that she had a chance to do all of this for us. She was even professionally prompt on an extreme high traffic and no parking day in Carmel. From the second we met Lorinda we felt at ease. Her delightful personality was a joy to be around. My groom and I, were having a small intimate wedding due to our shyness about being the center of attention. We were expecting that having our wedding photos taken was something we would have to suffer through. Boy were we wrong. After two hours of taking photos on the beach we could not stop talking about how much fun we had with Lorinda. She made the experience an unexpectedly enjoyable time that we will always treasure. Lorinda had an amazing ability to give her subjects directions while still keeping a light hearted vibe to achieve the premium result. Not only did Lorinda put us and our guests at ease but she also had great energy around our dogs. Our two Belgian Malinois are very suspicious of new people, especially if they are holding objects like a camera. In order to have them part of our ceremony we thought we would have to put up with lots of barking. Lorinda was so terrific with our dogs that they never barked at her. She was also very gracious about maneuvering around the guest dogs in attendance. She went above and beyond in getting special shots with the dogs that lived at the venue for a special gift for us to give the home owners. It takes an exceptional talent for a stranger to put dogs at ease in order to take their photo. We highly recommend Lorinda for shots of your furry friends, in addition to all your professional photo needs. If you want to have fun while getting direction so you get the most flattering, unique and artistic photos then call Lorinda.

Ferd provided such excellent service for both photo booth and photography for our Class Reunion. He provided the Photo booth, did a class group photo that was made available during the evening for purchase, and also did candid photos through the evening. He even made available a memory magazine that was a hit for our reunion. Thank you Ferd

I have worked with several photographers and I can always tell which ones are the professional ambitious ones and which ones are not. With Addie's Photography, I knew right away I made a great choice choosing this photographer. Not only was she so easy to work with and knew what she was doing, she is very creative in brainstorming ideas for the shoot to have some great shots taken. Very professional, patient, super friendly and has a great eye for capturing that perfect moment. Always on time, replies very quickly to messages and is great at understanding your vision for the photoshoot you want to bring to life. Know the company and know the name because you will be seeing her work everywhere and a lot more. From portraits, to weddings, to quinces and business to more, I would highly recommed Addie's Photography to everyone looking to get high quality professional photoshoots done. Capture the moment that tells a story, with Addie's Photography. A 5/5 recommendation from me! -Williams Rodriguez Bay Area Actor/Musician

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.

“ Kamran Zohoori has a unique and highly refined professional touch that brings photographs to life. When he walked into the studio on the morning of my photo shoot, I could sense he was a man of integrity. His first aim was to establish clear lines of respect and understanding. He sat me across the room and connected me with my intention for showing up. Then he kindly offered his full attention. It was fun. It was creative. The end result was art. Kamran is skilled at evoking the true emotion behind the images he captures. His studio is a safe space where vulnerability is transformed into strength. It is the honesty of his photographs which makes them so attractive. He has a keen eye for what is most essential and reflects the quality of truth in his work. Beyond the business package that he presents, Kamran has a very special gift. He is able to reveal a person's inner-most beauty and empowers people to shine. Being photographed by Kamran changed my life. He showed me who I am in a new light and positively impacted the way I now look at the world. Prepare to be amazed! ” — KAT

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!

Our daughter's wedding was the fifth one in our extended family that Kamran has done for us. We absolutely love his work! His photographs are incredibly creative and beautiful, and I have never seen album designs as amazing as his. And he's a fun guy to be around - professional, kind, helpful, and a great sense of humor. I would use his services any chance I got!

I used Thumbtack for the first time to hire a photographer for my daughter's 1st birthday. I am happy with my decision after I got SSS photos. He is very responsive and arrived early at the venue to take some photos before we go there. We are happy with whatever photos he has taken at the event. He is flexible in timings and you can expect prompt response for any queries regarding the photos. Thanks Sasi for the awesome photos. These are the memories we cherish life time.
