About

(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.

Before I begin let me just say that the pictures that Michael took of my family are perfect! We never had a professional photography session before so we didn't know what to expect. He really took the time to find the best locations at the venue and made sure everything was just right before he took our pictures. Michael is very fun and personable as well as professional. Would definitely recommend him and I wish him all the best in his future endeavors.

Our Annual Awards Ceremony is a very important event to our organization and to our members.

And I was so impressed by how fast he turned the shareable gallery around for us to share with our members. We will use Jeff for all of our professional photography needs!

About

Nick Otto was our photographer for our wedding at the Four Seasons in San Fransisco. He worked with us from 10AM-11PM. Everything went extremely well with the photography. Nick got great shots using reflections and different angles that most photographers wouldn't necessarily think about. Nick had the daunting task of working with a bride and groom that were not particularly interested or comfortable with doing posed shots and we only set aside 1 hour for photos. He made us feel comfortable and got wonderful pictures in such a short time. For the rest of the day he was taking candid photographs, in which he had a very unobtrusive presence. Photography never interrupted the ceremony, first dance, or speeches and he still got great shots of everything. He also was present when the bridle party was getting ready, as well as the groom and groomsmen getting dressed. All the photos he took will help us remember the whole wonderful day. In addition, he went above and beyond by setting up the first look so it took place in a special way. Nick is such a great person and easily makes friendly connections. We ended up wanting him at the wedding as a guest!!! If you are getting married in the Bay Area we strongly recommend Nick Otto as your photographer!!!

Where do I start when describing my experiences with Tawnya Marie Photography?!? Ms Tawnya has captured our family's love, out going, silly and sporty personalities for the past 3 years. I have used Ms Tawnya's photography services for family holiday outdoor photos, my daughters 8th birthday "photo shoot" party, and my cheer teams summer photos for our website. Ms Tawnya is very creative, professional, fairly priced, natural and works extremely well with children. I have a very out going 3 year old which Ms Tawnya was able to capture her outgoing ness as well has her shyness with such gentleness. Above all the best thing I honestly love and appreciate about Ma Tawnya and her photography services is she LISTENS to your vision and is able to capture exactly what you see in your mind and brings it to life naturally. No FAKE poses or smiles will ever be captured!!! I highly recommend you use Tawnya Marie Photography for your next event, wedding, family photos , new beginnings and journeys.

I would give Nataliya a rating of "10 stars" if I could. She is professional, talented, and personable in every sense of the word. I needed professional head shots for my press kit and LinkedIn profile, and some lifestyle photos with my two dogs. I arrived at her studio quite late and stressed because of it (I hate being late!). But, Nataliya was so positive, patient, and accommodating. Wow, I had a great experience! This was my first time doing a photo shoot. At first, I was not sure what I needed to do, but she guided me through every step, and I finally loosened up and had a blast. She is energetic and really knows her skill to perfection. I cannot agree more with the five-star rating left by her other reviewers-clients. I look forward to rehiring her again for other photography projects - both personal and professional.

About

Photography is my true passion, from real estate to aerial, weddings, and architecture. Everyone who wants good pictures should get them when they hire a photographer -- it's guaranteed! I graduated from the School of Visual Arts in New York, studied at the Edinburgh college of Art in Scotland and SCAD Atlanta. I have been published in several magazines including Fiber Arts, SVA Journal and New American Painters. My goal is to make great images for my clients every time, in a gentle style with clear communication and quick turnaround!

Damon was such a pleasure to work with. Communication before the event was open and smooth and the day of our event, he arrived on time, very professional, and very friendly. Turnaround time for our photos was quick, and they turned out exactly how I hoped they would. Just amazing. Would absolutely recommend, and I will definitely be contacting Damon for any other events I need a photographer for.
