(SPANISH BELOW) I want to highly recommend Nabor for your next photography project. I was contacted by my book editor asking for a head sot for my next novel. I live in Petaluma, CA and after looking at the rates of local photographers I tried this website. I obtained several bids and since I know very little about photography I asked my son for his opinion (he does photography for fun). After looking at the work of the people who sent bids he advised me that Nabor's work was the best "hands down". I negotiated with Nabor and he traveled to Petaluma to take the photos. We met early in the morning and when I got there he was already waiting for me. I was immediately impressed with his professional demeanor and flexibility. We walked around town and he knew exactly where the right background was. I knew then I was working with an artist. The love for his work is apparent in the photos he took. He got it right from the third photo but went on to take 191 photos!!!. The difficult part for me has been having to decide on just one photo. Nabor is definitely the best photographer I have ever worked with. There is something else beautiful about Nabor and that is that his first language is Spanish which is also my first language. It was truly a pleasurable experience to collaborate with someone passionate about his work. His photo will be a blessing to my novel. Thank you Nabor. (IN SPANISH) Quiero recomendar altamente Nabor para su próximo proyecto de fotografía. Mi editor de libros me pidió una fotografía reciente y profesional para mi próxima novela. Yo vivo en Petaluma, California, y después de mirar los precios de fotógrafos locales decidí probar este sitio web. Obtuve una serie de ofertas y puesto que sé muy poco acerca de la fotografía le pregunté a mi hijo su opinión (él hace la fotografía por diversión). Después de ver el trabajo de las personas que enviaron las propuestas mi hijo me aconsejó que el trabajo de Nabor era el mejor "sin comparación". Negocié con Nabor y viajó a Petaluma para tomar las fotos. Nos encontramos temprano en la mañana y cuando llegué ya me estaba esperando. Me impresionó inmediatamente su profesionalismo y su flexibilidad. Caminamos por el pueblo y él eligió el escenario perfecto para las fotos, sin durarlo mucho. Entonces supe que estaba trabajando con un artista. El amor por su trabajo es evidente en las fotos que tomó. Desde la tercera foto ya había cumplido con su encomienda y sobrepasado mi expectativa, pero siguió trabajando hasta tener ¡ 191 fotos !!!. La parte difícil para mí ha sido decidir en una sola foto. Nabor es sin duda el mejor fotógrafo con quien he trabajado. Hay algo todavía más bello de Nabor y es que su primer idioma es el español, que también es mi primera lengua. Fue realmente una experiencia agradable colaborar con alguien apasionado por su trabajo. Su foto será una bendición para mi novela. Gracias Nabor.

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!

Clearlight Video & Photography captured the best of my wedding. Lawrence is professional, kind, outgoing, curious, thoughtful, and takes the initiative to get the perfect shot. He calmly and tactfully directed our guests into the frame to get all the compositions we asked for (and more). Lawrence has a natural ability to capture real emotion and personality from strangers, such that many of our best photos are his candids. Moreover, all of our guests complimented us on his professionalism, friendliness, and ability to get people in the shot to compose good images. Lawrence was easy to work with throughout the process. We negotiated a price easily, even though my situation was fairly unique. Lawrence also allowed me access to his RAW files, something many photographers refuse to do. When I was unable to transfer the files to my computer after the event, Lawrence made additional arrangements to ensure I received them. Lawrence even continued to work on some of my images after the event had completed and he had been paid in full, sending me his alterations gratis. In sum, I speak for all of my guests in saying we were incredibly impressed with Lawrence's work. Measured by quality, I can see the services of Clearlight Video & Photography easily costing in excess of $2,000, especially in the Bay Area. I consider Lawrence's photography services to be the best bargain of my wedding, and give him my highest recommendation.

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.

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.

Jeff was smart, prepared, and professional. I selected him over other photographers because my impression was that he approached a job with the customer's needs at heart, and his work at our event certainly bore that out. He communicated well, was unobtrusive and helpful, and oh by the way he took some wonderful pictures of people engaged and working together at our event. You will enjoy working with Jeff, I promise.

This guy is amazing. His work is simply exceptional. He is so so so easy to work with. He is super talented and creative. He is very professional and friendly and one can simply rely on his talents for a great photo shoot. PS: for couples who like to have a private shoot ( which we wanted), my wife was so happy when stavan arranged for a female photographer for our needs and big day. He took an excellent drone shot which is a highlight of the video ( I highly recommend this ). I would recommend anyone to go with stavan for their big day without an iota of a doubt. He wiuld make it amazzzing.

Diane was wonderful. She photographed my daughter's wedding in Santa Cruz, CA. When I first contacted her she was very professional and extremely friendly and took the time to answer all of my questions. The few times I needed to contact her prior to the wedding she responded very quickly. On the wedding day she was on time and again very professional. The guests and our family members liked her very much as she was polite and blended very nicely with the group, never getting in the way. Most importantly the bride and groom really liked her and were very glad that she was my choice. She made them feel very comfortable. I received the pictures very quickly and they are beautiful. Everyone loves them and I look at them almost every day. So excited to get prints made. The price was very reasonable and I feel I definitely got my money's worth and then some. I highly recommend Diane and hopefully can work with her again some time. Lorraine Eugene, OR

Jennifer was the best photographer and witness my husband and I could have wished for. My husband and I got eloped at the San Francisco City Hall in February 2017. Jen was our photographer and sole witness. She was very helpful in guiding us around the city hall and she took the most beautiful and sincere pictures! My husband and I aren't very "romantic" or extroverted, so we were worried that we'd be put in cheesy awkward poses for our wedding pictures. But that wasn't the case at all! Jen was able to pick up on our personalities very quickly and she was able to feature the real us through her camera lens. Her experience, professionalism, and down to earth personality relaxed our wedding jitters and made us completely at ease. She was the perfect complement to our wedding day. I highly recommend Jen for any event :)

Fahim was the photographer at our engagement party. He is a nice guy and you can tell he wants to get the perfect shots and go above and beyond to make it a lifetime memory. Him and his wife are very friendly, and I would recommend them to anyone who's looking for a photographer to do the job right.

I hired Nicholas to film my Hindu wedding on a Sunday morning at Livermore two months ago. He was punctual and professional, ready with all his equipment in tow. Since there's no rehearsal for a Hindu wedding, I myself wasn't sure where he needs to stand or even go, but Nicholas was able to figure it out once in the event hall. After two weeks, we received the hard drive that held all the raw, unedited footage which is what I wanted and downloaded it onto our external drive. This took awhile for my husband and I to do, but Nicholas was extremely patient with us and reassured me it was okay to take our time. Once every clip was downloaded, my husband and I watched the unedited footage and relived our wedding day through Nicholas' eyes and filming, and it brings tears to our eyes to see the close-up of our expressions, the traditional clothing we wore, and marriage items on the stage. Nicholas also surprised us with still photos of our day even if he wasn't our paid photographer. In addition, the email and texting communication between Nicholas from start to end was prompt, and he was enthusiastic about filming his first Hindu wedding. I am also grateful that Nicholas worked within our budget and stayed the entire day from 9-2pm; he works for the passion of filming, and the money is secondary and I appreciated that commitment. He simply wants everything to be perfect for the bride and groom, and stress-free which it was. I would highly recommend future customers to hire Nicholas to film their special milestones in their lives.

Working with Irina was easy from start to finish. We set a date that I had to postpone a couple times because I was sick. When I showed up for the shoot Irina spring into action. She gave good direction and tried a number of different poses. I didn't know how the photos would turn out, but she has a good eye and knows how to bring out the best in the subject. I was more than pleased with the photos. I have worked with other photographers and haven't enjoyed those experiences. This was a great experience and worth the fee!

This was my first boudoir photo session. It was Groupon gift from my boyfriend. I consider myself a socially shy yet professionally confident person. Definitely not easy getting scantily clad and eventually naked in front of a stranger and having him take pictures! Kamran guides you through the initiation well. His assistant,Courtney, and Kamran help schedule the appt and review photos of your lingerie choices. I hired Sara to do my hair and makeup. When I looked in the mirror I was pleasantly surprised at my reflection! Neither Courtney nor Sara are there for the photo session. At the beginning of the session Kamran asks you questions about a memory when you felt particularly sexy and why you are doing the boudoir photo session. At the moment this line of questioning felt uncomfortably intimate to share. Once you see the final product it makes perfect sense. He wants to know so he can capture the spirit and emotion you want to convey in the pictures. This process will make the photos even more personal and appealing to your partner and you. Be sure to give it some thought before the session. He uses natural light to take the photos and his studio is set up well so he has furniture props to pose you on. You may want to look at some boudoir photos and get ideas about posing as I felt I could have used some guidance on that. It was not natural for me to move around like models do during a photo shoot. The studio is small enough you don't have to walk around far in high heels. He has a eye for what is sexy to men and women. The photos were a mix of pretty, feminine, soft to hot and sexy. He was able to photograph me in five outfits. I liked the images so much I bought a full package of photos, hi resolution pics, album and prints. It was expensive needless to say. Heck, these are pictures to look back on when I am in my 80's and I can say, "That beautiful women was me". He was easily available for post photo session communications, about the picture order, by email and text. The ordering process did take a few weeks to finalize but if you have a deadline I am sure he could accommodate that. Overall, a unique and positive experience.

Kamran was a pleasure to work with and we would recommend him to a friend. He made the process very easy and completely stress free. He had all of the tools necessary, anticipated everything, and could find a good shot anywhere. Amazing wedding photographer with decades of experience!
