As a creative director and fellow photographer, I knew I needed the expertise of a headshot specialist to take the 180+ headshots of my client's whole company including special lifestyles for the executives. Nabor was so professional and nimble in how he set up studio lighting on site and managed each personality as he coaxed out their best pose. I overheard the employees repeatedly rave about his speed and how well their shots came out. Not only was Nabor ahead of schedule and completed the entire shoot in 1.5 days, but he also handed over ALL processed shots in less than 5 days following. He's an amazing partner to work with and I highly, highly recommend Nabor for headshots!

I am a very camera shy guy but I needed a professional headshot. So I met Cindy. Not only I got great photos, but It has been surprisingly fun too! I highly recommend her to anybody who needs a professional photographer.

Douglas was great! He was really good at keeping in contact before my wedding day to make sure everything would be as simple for me as possible. He listened to all my requests and my photos turned out wonderfully. He was really easy to get along with and made everyone feel comfortable during the picture taking. He was prompt with sending the photos to me and even sent one the night of the wedding that was too good to wait. That made me really happy. He did a great job and the price was right, especially for the amount of time and work he put into everything. Thanks Doug!

We were so blessed to work with Anna and Jonathon for our ceremony engagement photos and on our Indian wedding day. They're was always so super awesome, nice and patient with us. They really helped us look our best! They never missed a shot and were always ready with their cameras to capture every moment. There's beautiful posed and creative shots as well as candid photos from throughout the night. And the turnaround time was so quick! We have so many photos from our Indian wedding day and they turned out beautiful!! We were amazed at how quickly we received a sneak peek preview video then all of the photos on discs. My family also loved it. Anna and Jonathon are very sweet guys for all the wonderful photos. We worked with Jonathon and Anna on our Indian wedding day and we are so glad we had them as our photographers. Thank you both so much for all your hard work! The photos are beautiful and loved it.

Nick was very responsive to all phone calls/e-mails prior to the photo shoot and assured me that he would execute the process seamlessly. Day of, he arrived on time and was very engaging and entertaining throughout the shoot (80+ employees in one photo!). Nick delivered the photos within 1-2 days and was very reliable!

Dennis Shew is an amazing photographer! I was very nervous and unsure of how to take a good picture. Dennis made me feel very comfortable and confident, and even made me laugh a few times. With his direction, my headshots turned out amazing! I strongly recommend Dennis due to his talent and fair price.

Tim was hired to take professional headshots for a group of our executives. He was great! Experienced professional and very personable. His humor made everyone feel comfortable and his laughter was contagious. Although our company has been working with Tim for 3 years now, this was my first time working directly with him, and it was a complete pleasure. The shoot ran smoothly thanks to Tim's flexibility and the photos came out great. We most definitely will continue to use Tim for his services.

Julie is an outstanding portrait photographer, I felt very comfortable with her during my photo shoot. She has a great eye for details, photo shoot locations and knows all the technicalities. She was also available to answer my questions prior to the shoot and accommodate my wishes. I was very satisfied with my headshots.

In choosing Marissa for a photo shoot, I took into consideration that she responded quickly to my request for a quote, her reply was professional and articulate and responsive to my needs, and her photography is first class. This enabled me to put my mind at ease during the process, knowing that the end result would be what I'd asked for. I hired her to shoot a musician and his musical instrument for something very important in his life. She was given precise specs. Marissa did double-duty because she had to go through me, plus the musician, in all aspects of the shoot--which took place the week after I hired her. A plus was that she was accommodating as far as her schedule in getting him in right away. The subject is shy and he was nervous but he called right after the shoot and told me she immediately made him feel at home in her studio. He said it was a wonderful experience. Marissa, the subject and I all live in different counties yet she had the disc containing the photo files in our hands within a couple of days and she also sent them to us by email. He usually hates photos of himself but he is extremely happy with the resulting photos. There were a couple of bumps along the way but Marissa went above and beyond the call of duty in satisfying me and explaining things to me. I wouldn't hesitate to call her again. She's has an easy manner and when it comes to business, she is honest, responsible, no-nonsense, knowledgeable, creative and, of course, a very talented photographer!

I hired SFImagery (Rick) to take some headshots. I am not the type of person who practices their smile in the mirror or makes any special effort when posing for pictures. So, I was not exactly nervous about getting some corporate head shots, but I was not looking forward to it. Rick was great. He made everything very easy, from scheduling the session to the actual shoot. He paid meticulous attention to lighting, positioning, clothing, etc., and he made me feel very comfortable. Best of all, the pictures turned out great, which of course, is what really matters.

Randy did my head shots for my website ( and office photos (see on Yelp listing) too. She is not just a photographer but also has an artist's eye when composing her photos. When it comes time to update my website, I am making sure that Randy will be doing the photos of my new office.

He had a home studio setup. This was my first time getting professional photos and he eased me into it. I just needed 5-6 photos but he took a bunch of them so I can pick and choose from. He made me stand in different angles so he can different points of focus. He also did some retouching on the ones I liked

I needed some professional headshots last minute and found Shovana. She was ver accomodating to my schedule, very professional, and willing to tweak the photos until they were just how I wanted them. She had good advice about what to wear and what style the photos should be in. Very communicative and responsive as well. Very happy to have worked with her!

Tustin is a real pro. I went in for a couple of head shots and he started working me like a model. It was actually fun. He took a couple of hundred shots from which I selected six. He really nows how to coach you to look your best. He was friendly and flexible and the work went fast. Thanks, Tustin! These are exactly what I need for both my professional brochures and my social media.

Samantha took my headshots to be used in all of my business stationary and on my business website. She was a joy to work with; incredibly professional and helped to put me at ease throughout the whole process. I don't enjoy having my photo taken and Samantha made the shoot feel very friendly and natural. She advised me on the best colors to wear and even provided make up and hair tips on how to get the best end result. She knew how to work around the weather and environment to ensure that the pictures came out perfectly. In addition Samantha was very helpful in choosing the best shots out of the series and was very prompt in sending me the end product. I can't tell you how many wonderful compliments that I have received on the headshots from both clients, friends and family. I believe that this speaks more than anything else I can say in this review. If you want a stressfree, fun and friendly photoshoot with incredible results, then look no further!

I needed a headshot for theater work, so I hired Harry. He's got a flexible schedule and took some wonderful pictures outside at Stanford. The pictures came out great, and Harry was absolutely wonderful to work with. The retouching work looks very natural, it doesn't scream "Someone used Photoshop to fix this!"
