Neither of us had experienced being photographed formally before, unless you're counting work headshots (and I'm not), so trying to find a wedding photographer was a little intimidating. I spent a number of years on the east coast as part of an informal photography group that had several professionals as members... so we went into the search feeling pretty confident that we knew what we were looking for... and I'm happy to say we found it. Michael's documentary style suited us perfectly. We had to reschedule our park-setting engagement shoot about four times because it rained so much here last winter and Michael was flexible, informal, easy to work with, didn't make us feel awkward or odd while posing, and clearly loves his work. We had fun! When the wedding day arrived, he was prompt, friendly, and kept up with our rather unique event. He was so kind with family while posing us after the ceremony, and he was both creative and efficient with the shots of us as a couple also - we weren't rushed, and we made it to the cocktail hour! The shots of our first dance (we'd learned to swing dance for the occasion) are some of my favorites, as well - the angles he picked were perfect. He knew how to be unobtrusive, but also when to speak up to cue us for a specific shot. Best of all, the photos were edited and back to us even faster than he'd promised them. Michael's a quality human, making quality photos... we'd highly recommend him to anyone!

We've used Tri a number of times for employee headshots. Each time he is very professional, positive, and friendly. He also takes fantastic pictures, and is very easy to communicate with and get a hold of. I highly recommend him!

I recently moved to California from Toronto, Ontario. My fiancee (now husband) is native Californian so I moved here to be with him. I arrived in May and we set a wedding date for August. For me it was going to be a big challenge moving from one city to another and having to plan a wedding. I found the website thumbtack.com, and this is where I found Martino. After reading all of his reviews, and looking at his work on his website, I decided to give him a call. Martino called me back immediately and was very friendly and professional. At first I just wanted his services for 2 hours, and after thinking about it, I decided that I wanted to hire him for 4 hours. I felt that Marino was EXTREMELY flexible in extending the time frame AND his price was phenomenal. I did a lot of research on photographers in the Bay area, and we almost decided not to hire a photographer. While I was on the phone with Martino, we dicussed what kinds of photos I wanted. (Portrait, candid, etc etc) and he was so accommodating because there were a few shots that I was ADIMATE on him taking (when my husband saw me for the first time in my dress, cake cutting) and he was assuring me that he would take these photos. (By the way, they he stayed true to his word and gave me all the photos that I asked him for and they are just beautiful). On the day of the wedding, he was on the ball. He was there right when he said he would be. He was extremely friendly and really got to know and talk to all of my guests. (I had a small wedding with 45 people) I got married at the Cliff House in San Francisco so having pictures with the ocean was the most important. Although it was EXTREMELY windy, Martino worked some Beautiful photography magic and the photos came out better than I could possibly imagine. The finished product were just beautiful and I Thank you Martino for all of your hard work on our wedding. Now we can re-live the day over with all of your beautiful photos.

I used Stylebee for both hair and makeup for my engagement session in SF. Chantelle and Stylebee were so wonderful and flexible (I changed my appointment to a super early 4:30am start - yikes!). Shannon was my MUA and hair stylist - She arrived right on time and did such an amazing job. I don't think I've ever looked so glamorous! She made me feel so beautiful and confident for my engagement photos. Highly recommended!! Thank you, ladies!!

We engaged Patrick for a 1-day corporate photo project involving shooting a lab facility and executive headshots. Patrick was very professional and exceeded our expectations. He took the extra time before the shoot date to scope out the location, which saved set-up time on the day of the shoot. He was professional, friendly and easy to work with. I would highly recommend his services!

I picked Cheshire to take some professional headshots for my company. I was trying to get my shots to match those taken of the rest of my team in NY. Cheshire went above and beyond to make sure my photos came out exactly as I wanted, and matched the others quite well. He was professional, patient, and made me feel comfortable! Thanks Cheshire!

My daughter was turning 18 and going to be a Senior in high school. We're from Virginia and traveled to San Francisco to visit family. I wanted to have my daughter's Senior portrait in the San Francisco area such as having the background of the Golden Gate Bridge and Baker Beach. Unfortunately, it's a hit or miss with the fog and wind in the city. I brought this up to Justin and he was able to recommend other places. Justin was prompt with responding with the many email exchanges. When we met at Central Park, he was there with his assistant. It was a beautiful day in San Mateo. He took pictures in the gazebo at the rose garden and the Japanese Garden. By the way it's the Japanese Garden's 50th anniversary this year. The second place for the photo shoot was the Pulgas Water Temple. The last time I was there was 26 years ago when my husband and I had our wedding pictures taken there. Justin took some great photos there too with the reflective pool. From there we drove to Moss Beach in Half Moon Bay. The trees surrounding the place were picturesque. Olivia changed into a different outfit. Her outfit was fitting for the color of the place. The slight breeze featured a wind blown flow with her hair and blouse. Justin also took a few headshot pictures of my other daughter and of us as a family. Early that evening he sent me a couple of pictures to see. They were magnificent. A few days later we were able to download the photos. Overall, we were very happy with the quality of the photos he took.

I had an urgent need to get headshots done for a website. He was super responsive via messaging and came to my home within an hour! Not only that but he turned the photos immediately and I had digital access within a couple hours. He was efficient, had immense attention to detail and great suggestions to get things done right.

We were recommended Gianna from a neighborhood website and she did not disappoint. Gianna was at the agreed location on time and she knew how to prioritize her time with our three year old daughter. She did the due diligence on the lighting and location and the shots came out perfect. She was able to accommodate our short deadline and finished the photos within a matter of a few days. (We were trying to get Christmas cards out and we just moved to the area.). We cannot express our gratitude and satisfaction with her work. Professional, friendly, and a great value. Highly recommended.

I’ve known Steven and had seen his work for many years. When it was time for me to get headshots done I naturally thought of him. His work was everything I expected it to be. The morning we spent shooting was more like hanging out with an old friend which made it easy to poise for him. You can tell Steven enjoys his work and it comes thru in the final product.
