Albert is a wonderful photographer. I love the pictures he took of our concert last night. He captured the mood beautifully. I will definitely use him again.

I hired Nabor to take a family portrait in our home. Nabor was extremely responsive, very easy to communicate with and very punctual. He was easy to work with and made everyone, young and older, feel comfortable. I would recommend Nabor!

We had a great experience with Brian. He was flexible with our date and easy to communicate with. He arrived at the site early to scope it out which I really appreciated because I wasn't the most familiar with it. He had great suggestions and was open to our ideas too. Best of all he captured beautiful photos of our family and almost one year old. I highly recommend Brian!

It was a pleasure working with Kuks on this photo shoot, he is very personable and patient. Took the time to get to know me a bit before beginning which is pretty important for portrait photography. The pics turned out great, everyone loved them!

What a great choice we made hiring Thomas! We had 100+ people that all wanted individual family portraits and only 1 hour to do it all. Not only did Thomas get every picture we requested, he had time left over for fun pics. Very easy going and non-intrusive. Definitely going to hire him again for our next goat-roping!!

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.

Very good experience with Dan who took some headshots, portraits and "action" photos of me teaching a class. Some photos definitely came out better than others, but this could have been my error in not hiring a stylist to help with the little details.

Diane photographed our families mildstone birthday celebration. Diane was very professional and yet her warm personality put everyone at ease,some of us act like we would rather go to the dentist than have our picture taken. I would gladly hire Diane again to photograph our family.

Adam and Hanna were our Wedding Photographers in November 2016. Everything was very professional from the first time we met them, email communication in between, and on the day of our wedding. They were specific in asking us which photos we desired to be taken and were careful to take these and more! We were very impressed by the results and the price. Adam and Hanna provided us with incredible, professionally done photos that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Everyone we show our photos to are amazed at the quality. There's no one else out there who charges a great, low price with high quality! I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

I was in need of an updated portrait photo for use in my marketing materials. I scheduled a session with Jennifer and I'm so thrilled with the photos she took. She just has that gift of capturing you at your best. She provided me with my photos very quickly. I will definitely contact her for my future photography needs.

Andrea did an incredible job photographing my 3-day business seminar called PleasureCEO Live! She worked well within the setting, and managed to capture some precious moments that I can now use well in my marketing materials. I myself am a professional portrait photographer so my standards are quite high, and I highly recommend Andrea for your events!

Eric did a fantastic job capturing my portrait photos around San Francisco area. Right from corresponding with me for choosing the best locations to building a strong theme for my shoot, Eric was very patient and paid close attention to detail. I highly recommend scheduling any of your photoshoots with him because he is willing to go above and beyond to offer you the best output. His knowledge of SF is reflected in his ability to identify ideal locations for different occasions. I can vouch that you'll be more than satisfied by his excellent work.

Alex IS AMAZING!!! Talented, patient, soft spoken, flexible and super creative. We are not much of a photogenic people on the first place, and my husband doesn't really like to take pictures. But our photos turned out better than we hoped every single time! And we are so happy that we've created wonderful memories to look back at thanks to Alex. From lovebirds photo shoot to maternity, to baby pictures and family portraits, Alex was able to capture incredible moments and details. And he is so good with capturing kids! Those moments of sweet smiles and silly giggles that you can almost hear through the picture are priceless. We had wonderful time every time we took pictures, I don't think there was a single photo we didn't love. I can't say enough of how happy we are to have Alex as our photographer. Now with another baby coming up in super exited and can't wait to create more memories. I would highly recommend Alex! You will not be disappointed!

Jean-Paul was a perfect photographer for our daughter's Sweet Sixteen. I contacted him last minute through thumbtack (a week before the party) and he gave me an amazing deal that didn't compare to any other quotes I got. He responded quickly, showed up early to the event and was very kind professional and attentive throughout the event. He took many photos, and got back to me with pictures only a couple days after the party. Let me tell you- the pictures were beautiful and captured each moment perfectly. We will definitely be calling Jean-Paul again!

I've been modeling for about a year now, and the only reason I was even able to get my foot in the door a fraction of the way was because of Nico. He was the first person I ever shot with. Since that time we have worked together numerous other times. My favorite thing about Nico, besides his obviously gorgeous photographs, is how comfortable he makes me feel when we shoot. I love pushing the boundaries of my art and being able to work with Nico is the only way I'm able to do that. Nico loves what he does and it shows 100% of the way through his work. He cares about making me, and every other model he's worked with I have no doubt, feel respected. This is a huge problem in the industry, but photographers like Nico are hopefully the forefront of a big change that needs to happen. I use so many photo's that Nico has taken of me in my portfolio, and my agent loves them .

Sam was very professional throughout, followed up quickly on every email and fully lived up to our expectations with our family photos of 9 people, including portraits, of 4 generations ranging in age from 3 to 93. Sam went out of his way to accommodate our needs and wants, came up with excellent suggestions along the way and managed to take great photos even under demanding conditions. We were more than thrilled with his results and would not hesitate to work with Sam again at any time.

It was very easy to set up our photo session. Joi took many pictures of our family at different areas at the beach. She sent the contact sheet that night. Over the next few days, Joi responded to my requests to send various photos as jpegs so that I could see them more clearly promptly. In the end she sent various cropped versions and sizes of my favorite poses for my selection. She even swapped heads on two photos so that I had the perfect smile on each family member.

Had an excellent experience with Michelle! She was quite patient, helpful and you can tell she’s passionate and serious about her work. Michelle went above and beyond to make sure I got plenty of great photos to pick from and worked with me to come up with creative ideas for my 30 birthday photos. She will certainly be the photographer I call on for future events, etc. !
