    Katherine Elyse Photography

    (28 reviews)

    My extensive background in teaching photography and working with kids and families of all different ages and background allows me to get a closer look at their lives. My passion for others allows me to gain a deeper understanding of who they are and then pull that out through my images. I don't want to just capture the photo, I want the photo to capture you. I love working with all different types of people. From kids to bands to graduates and aspiring fashionistas, I always enjoy going on shoots and getting to know their back story.

  • Michael Keel Photography

    (122 reviews)

    First and foremost - I love what I do. I feel privileged to be able to make art every day and to share it with my clients. My goal is to make images speak, exposing "how it feels". I try to achieve in my work: balance, beauty, consistency and continual growth. I think my photography stands out from others as I have shot on film my entire life. I focus on "real moments", a more journalistic style of wedding photography. I switched to digital about five years ago. But when I make my photos I strive to get the shot right the first time "in camera" - not in Photoshop! A lot of photographers overly utilize Photoshop and manipulate their photos far beyond what they originally shot. With my work, I only use Lightroom as a "digital darkroom" to develop my colors of what I saw and try my best to make that shot perfect in my eyes to begin with. Photoshop is only used in my work if something major needs to be done, mistake, or a client has a special request for that magazine look of brushing, for example a fashion shoot, modeling ad and so on. No one should "rely" on Photoshop. You should rely on your "photography skills" - while on the job. Rates: Contact me (varying rate depending on event) Cancellation: $50 cancellation fee for (engagement shoots) I get the freedom to express how I see the world through my lens. These images are seen through my eyes with the help of my camera. My intention has always been to put the viewer in the moment, of actually feeling like they are in the photo, standing at the viewpoint, gazing, and leaving it up to the viewer to interpret their own feelings. I want to find the camera angle from which this feeling can be the most that they can be whatever that is. If it is the grace of the clouds, then I want the angle from which that grace becomes the absolute most it can be at that moment. And so it leads me on, to explore angles, space, reflections, and light. I strive to make "moments" make sense visually, and trust that the metaphor, meaning, will follow.

  • Douglas Fairbairn Photography

    (83 reviews)

    Serving San Francisco Bay Area, I focus on Wedding, Portrait and Event photography. In other words, I focus on people and their emotions. For weddings, I combine a photojournalistic style with traditional bridal and family portraiture. In all my photography, my ultimate goal is to capture the real emotion of the moment and allow my photos to stir those emotions forever. My clients appreciate the superb photography, along with an easy and fun working relationship, combined with a dedication to complete dependability and a commitment to full customer satisfaction. Most of all, I enjoy the people I get to know through my photography. I love to hear their stories, how couples meet, how families relate, and just who they are as people. I do my best work when I have an easy and relaxed relationship with my clients. I can capture the best and most natural images when the client is comfortable and feeling good about themselves.

    Genevieve Jerome Photography

    (50 reviews)

    Finding a wedding photographer was such an overwhelming task and my husband and I were so glad to have found Genevieve Jerome Photography. From our initial discussions, we found that she as easy to work with, offered us different photo packages to help us stay in my budget, and had a fun journalistic style of photography that worked perfectly with our personalities and venue. Genevieve was extremely organized in the months leading up to my wedding and maintained constant contact. It was reassuring to know that she had everything under control. On the day of our wedding, she and her assistant showed up early and were ready to go. Despite the fact that I was still running around to set things up (my wedding was mainly DIY) Genevieve set about taking dress photos and pre-wedding shots without me having to ask. My husband, a stickler for tradition, didn’t want to take any pre-ceremony shots, so Genevieve efficiently used that time to get separate bridesmaid and groomsmen photos. During the ceremony, we didn’t even notice she and her assistant were there taking photos. We were surprised at some of the great shots they got because they were very quiet and unobtrusive. Ninja photographers! Genevieve really shined during the family photos. Knowing that we were on a tight timeline, she organized everyone for a super-fast and efficient photo shoot and even included some fun group photos at my request. This was the first time my whole family had been together in several years so I know it couldn’t have been easy to get us to stop talking and take photos! The photos were truly beautiful and I laughed and cried as I clicked through the easy access online gallery she put up for me and my family. Like everyone says, the wedding was a blur to me and I can barely even remember some of the moments during the reception so I am grateful to have the photos to relive the memories. The lighting at our venue was very difficult to work with (indoor mostly low-light with some blinding accent lights) and she handled it expertly and used the strange lighting conditions to create some really cool lighting effects. Genevieve was also very accommodating to all the crazy shots my husband and I wanted to try out. Our venue was in a planetarium so we had to get some fun photos! Check them out  http://genevievejeromephotography33.blogspot.com/2015/03/when-i-first-moved-to-sacramento-from.html I also can’t get over the great photos of my husband that she captured. He really is resistant to being photographed and claims to not be photogenic at all, but Genevieve’s photos really brought out his character and he looked comfortable in all the photos. He barely lets me take photos of him! I will treasure these photos even more knowing that I will probably never get him to agree to take so many photos again. Thank you Genevieve for capturing the energy and excitement of our planetarium wedding so perfectly!

    Honeynhero Photography

    (2 reviews)

    Erika is a wedding and portrait photographer in San Francisco Bay area. When Erika is your wedding photographer, you feel at ease and relax, even the moment you slip into your beautiful dress. She was once a bride, so she can relate and relieve some of the feelings you will be experiencing, such as anxiety, overwhelming and perfectionism. Erika focuses on emotion, connection and moments among the couple, the parents, and all the loved ones. She is always listening, thinking and anticipating for those moments of the day as they unfold naturally. She stands by to freeze them into beautiful memories as they happen. She loves when the couple forgets about the presence of the photographer, when they are in the moment of their day and focus on the love for each other. She then works her ways to find flattering angel and right light. While Erika does give directions from time to time, especially during the wedding portraits, her mere goal is to ignite that special seconds from the couple when love, light, and something unexpectedly beautiful all meets spontaneously. When art meets the emotions, Erika achieves her mission, and she is happily every after. Erika strives to create wedding photographs that stand the test of time and generations. They are truthful in both color and emotion. They stand alone as works of art while also telling an honest, full-of-life story you remember when viewed collectively. Her wedding work evoke an effortless and romantic feeling along with a kick of something unique, either by incorporating an embracing composition or a touch of special light. Each image you will be looking at is finely crafted from start to finish by her, who was there, witnessed every frame. Each wedding happens in a type of environment that's unique to the couple, therefore, your images are toned for color, depth and white balance that's true to the day and the way you remember. Erika further give your chosen favorites extra touches for enlargements, books and albums.
