Our trading company in Tokyo requested a 2 minute video introduction for a new product we manufacture for them. I notified Albert Benichou at DeNoise Studios that we had selected him (on the basis of other reviews) late Friday afternoon. I arrived at his studio at 10:00 a.m. on Monday. We did the shoot in just over 90 minutes. He had a proof to me that evening and offered suggestions on how we could vastly improve some of the content using public domain HD video. He edited the segments so each point I made had an appropriate visual. The final was ready, as promised, midday on Tuesday. He got the editable versions to FEDEX for us that afternoon and it will be delivered in Tokyo by 6:00 p.m. tonight, a day early. Albert has a great calmness about him which is extremely helpful because I'm not a professional actor and have to overcome my nervousness and his patience and suggestions made that easier. The piece will be the introduction to a TBS home shopping network broadcast with a hand-off to the program's host. I would have rated DeNoise 5 stars except that Albert didn't "mic" me. He relied on recording the sound from his camera and while the audio quality is understandable, it's not as balanced as it might have been with a lapel mic. Otherwise we are completely satisfied.
Nabor is an incredibly talented photographer and he is wonderful to work with. Prompt, personable, and professional. I have hired his for outdoors shoots. His instinct to capture unexpected moments. And his eye for aesthetics are on point. I would definitely work with Nabor again.
It was a pleasure working with Lawrence for my wedding in City hall San Francisco. He was very familiar with the area, and knew all the perfect spots for beautiful photos. He was calm and patient with all my guests, and with me, as I was struck with wedding-day nerves! Lawrence was with us for most of the day, taking pictures before the ceremony, during, and after. He captured all the family and friend shots we needed, and we were left with plenty of time for creative, artistic, and romantic shots as well. I didn't realize how lovely they would be until I saw them, LAwrence really has a great eye for a beautiful shot, and we will treasure the photos. Thanks so much Lawrence
I recently got acting headshots from Brian. It was great working with him! He was very friendly, and I felt comfortable enough to try out some awesome expressions/poses/etc. We would do a series of shots, then look at them on his laptop so that I could see what was working and what wasn't and adjust accordingly. With previous photographers, they would just do a bunch of shoots, then show me the photos online the next day. Brian found a great hair and makeup professional who made me look and feel beautiful! And finally, I appreciated that Brian was really flexible about timing, editing, background setup, etc. Thanks Brian!
I’m so happy that we found Ruben when we did to do the videography for our wedding in June! My husband and I decided to hire a videographer at the last minute (a month before the wedding), and in came Ruben to the rescue! He was very professional and eager to provide his talents for us. So far we have only seen the teaser of the highlight reel but I have zero doubt in my mind that the full thing will exceed our expectations as the little bit we have seen brought my husband and I close to tears. He definitely has an eye for the perfect shot and chooses the best music to accompany them! Thank you so much Ruben for making our day that much more special!
I am writing my review before I even receive my pictures from Cindy. She was the photographer at my son's very small intimate wedding at the UC Botanical Gardens and The Claremont Hotel. She was there waiting for us when we got there. Already had scoped out the place for good photo spots. From the start she took control (in a good way)! She was so relaxed and helped everyone feel comfortable. She was always aware of her surroundings and never in the way. She took a lot of pictures. Some I saw on her camera and I cannot wait to see the rest. She will be doing some more photo shoots for us very soon. What a find. She is a gem.
Sheila drove a distance during rush hour to meet our large family in a park. She was very professional. Sheila was flexible, running from one spot in the park to another as each family set themselves up for her shots. She was great with the young ones--patient and creative. She is working with us to do requested edits to the proofs. I highly recommend Sheila for your family shoots!
I think they have the nature to gave you confidence and that make the shoots more natural. I am not american and don't speak english and they were very pacient with me. I love the creativity and how they help me with the poses.
Patrick is a great photographer. The whole experience of working with him has been very pleasant. He was punctual and worked very quickly, yet at no time did it feel like he was in a hurry. He was great at putting me at ease for the photo shoot. He was very interested in knowing what kind of feel/style I was looking for for my photos and he proved to have clear in mind how to obtain the effect I was looking for. A few hours after the photo shoot the work was ready for easy download from the web. The results were really great!
Eric is an excellent photographer and creative collaborator. I asked for his help in a solo artist project and am SO happy with his work!
My fiancé hired Steve to photograph his proposal, and it was magical. A day that I will never forget, and thanks to Steve I have beautiful pictures hanging on my wall to show off. Very professional and worked well around my restless and rowdy toddlers! Pictures were ready for review within hours not weeks, and I had the prints in hand not long after as well. Would highly recommend and will be hiring for our future photo shoots as well! 10/10!
We were really happy with the sunset photography of our family with our new baby daughter! The lighting, poses, and framing of the shots with the gorgeous backgrounds were very nice, really made us look good. He was also very patient with our baby, even with the blowing wind!! Thanks so much!!
Tri met me for a photo shoot of my Jeep Wrangler. He was outstanding to work with. Showed up early, had all the right gear, really knew his stuff, and had endless passion and energy to get all the "right shots". We even shot 3 or 4 different venues at his suggestion -- far above and beyond what I would have expected. Also just a good, genuine guy that is a pleasure to work with.
Nicholas did a great job shooting our event. He was sure to capture every aspect of the event. Would definitely consider having him shoot for us again.
Oh my goodness!! The photos came out absolutely incredible. I had so many options to choose from it was overwhelming. I highly highly highly recommend Fifi for all your photo shoot needs. She is about to take my website to a whole new level with these images. Thank you!! 💞 www.tsedimusic.com
As someone who is not comfortable in front of the camera at all, I really enjoyed my session with Tina. She is extremely lively and made me feel at ease during the photo shoot. The resulting pictures were spectacular. My pictures never come so good. Tina is extremely professional and creative. The pictures were the best I have ever had. All my friends and family loved them. I would definitely love to do another session with her and would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a good photographer to take pictures of themselves and their family.
Scott is an amazing photographer! I can’t recommend him highly enough. I’ve worked professionally with Scott on a variety of photo shoots, everything from indoor studio sessions to outdoor lifestyle shoots. To each type of setting he brings his technical mastery, fantastic eye and great personality. Scott is a pleasure to work with and the photos he produces are spot on. If you’re looking for a true professional, who is organized great to work with and will capture just the photos you are after, hire Scott Maddern!
A couple weeks ago I had the absolute pleasure of working with Nico. Not only is he an amazing photographer whose work I highly admire, but he is also one of the most genuine and warm-hearted individuals I’ve been lucky enough to meet this year. I think the most important part of shooting is the communication as well as the efforts for comfortablity on both ends - the photographer and the model. Before the shoot he was actually so kind enough to pick me up from school before the shoot. When shooting, Nico is very professional and takes pride in his work - he will make sure you look FABULOUS. I also had a lot of fun just being around him, and the energy in these shoots make me eager to shoot again. I’ve never met such an easy-to-get-along-with photographer quite like Nico. His presence and personality make our time in these shoots all the more exciting. It’s one thing to be a skillful photographer, but it’s a whole other thing to be so well-liked as an individual simultaneously. You can always tell how passionate a photographer try is once you get the chance to work with them, and Nico shows great authentic appreciate for the art. I’m happy to be apart of his visions. Nico, thanks for bringing your high quality work, your booming creativity and, of course, your fun-loving self to these shoots. Let’s make more magic soon!!
Victoria did an amazing job with my son's newborn and 3 month photo shoots. He was not always cooperative but Victoria was patient. She even came back a second time to try and get some better shots. I was amazed at the outcome of the pictures, they were perfect! Not only that but Victoria suggested a few new ideas that I hadn't thought of that really took the photos to the next level. I will be hiring her for family photos as well as more milestone pictures of my little guy!
Eli is amazing, very knowledgeable and he takes his time with shoots and doesn't rush the shoot.
Very high quality work! Kavya did a great job for our pre-wedding photoshoot. We shot at 2 locations in the golden hours (morning and evening). She helped us in choosing the locations and outfits, and brought some cool props as well! She was very prompt in replying to our queries, and gave us the final photographs in a timely way. The photos looked awesome. We used them at many places in our wedding (even had some put up poster-size at the venue!)
