Had a fantastic photo shoot for some music pictures. Responed right away, and was very positive, helpful and understanding along the way. I felt very comfortable the whole time, and he helped to bring out a few styles that work for me. I highly recommend Godoy studios for anyone, especially artistic types looking for a fun and easy photographer to work with.

We did a maternity photo shoot with him and we loved it! Even with our 17 months toddler with us, he managed to get beautiful pictures and work things out! We're looking forward to work with him in our future photo shoots too. Highly recommend!

Amazingly incredible is the only thing I can say!! Lawrence and his partner did an outstanding job on our wedding and we got all the pictures and video back within the first week and a half! The pictures came out SO GOOD! My husband and I would highly recommend Lawrence for any photo shoot or wedding! Great prices that fit within our budget and great service and products!

My fiance and I scheduled an engagement shoot with Sheila and found out it was going to rain on the scheduled date. Sheila was extremely accommodating and coordinated a different date for us on very short notice. During the actual photo shoot, she captured each moment perfectly and was extremely comfortable to work with! Also, Sheila had our pictures back to us in just a few days! Our overall experience with her was just fantastic! We would be thrilled to work with her again and recommend her to all :)

My experience with Ruben and his photo booth services were great. He communicated with me via text to make things easier for me since I started planning my daughter bday party just days before. His assistant was on time and he stayed until it ended. Ruben provided us with our gallery online.

We hired Stavan for our son's first birthday photo shoot (backyard) and also the party (banquet hall). Pictures from both times came out very clear. Stavan was very patient and tried to capture as many moments as possible during both the shoots. He is very punctual and had no issues getting his response whenever we needed to contact him. Highly recommend him for any kid's photo shoots or parties!

Diane was very responsive from the get-go and checked-in prior to the event to confirm all the details. She has a lovely personality and made all of the subjects feel comfortable and at ease at the photo shoot. She was able to beautifully capture all of the highlights of our event and followed up promptly with the final photos.

Jen was a pleasure to work with and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a great Bay Area photographer. She knew her way around city hall and the civic ceremony process, which helped calm our nerves. Her directions during the photo shoot were clear, helpful, fun, and gentle. She is fantastic! Thank you so much, Jen.

Andrea was very helpful through the entire process of my engagement photo shoot. She helped me plan the photo session, she arrived early to pick out the perfect location and was very flexible in accommodating my schedule. She also provided copies of our photos the next day and all of them had been professionally edited and looked amazing. Highly recommend using Andrea for any photography sessions.

Fahim was very responsive to my emails and answered all my questions. The contract was clear and it was easy to make the deposit. He was on-time and took beautiful pictures. He fit right in with our family, so everyone felt comfortable. Although the venue did not lend itself to a photo shoot, Fahim used his skills to camouflage it. Our pictures turned out really nice. The package I received was a great deal and I would use him again. Thank you Fahim!

Chris was great to work with for my real estate photo shoot! Excellent pictures! He accommodated my special requests and made 2 trips due to bad weather because timing of the pics were critical for me. Would definitely recommend πŸ‘πŸ½

Sean was an excellent photographer. He was quick, courteous and amazing. He was able to come down to my office, and take an amazingly professional portrait photo with little notice, and had it edited even quicker. His photos were amazing and he was a pleasure to work with.

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.

I was lucky to have two photo shoots with this talented photographer. One of them was at the beach - a beautiful location found by Irina, and another one was in a studio. As many people, I like having nice professional photos of myself but I'm not that good at modeling and posing. But that was so easy with Irina! She stayed very supportive, attentive and friendly during the whole photo shoot, helped me with posing and made me feel really beautiful and relaxed. My favorite photos so far are the ones made by Irina!

A tremendous Thank You to Bao and Memento Strip! We had our wedding banquet on 9/10 and Bao's team was instrumental in making our banquet a success. There were many many moving parts to our banquet - from the decorator showing up late, to our bar running out of ice, to our ice cream station not keeping up with demand, etc etc ... but the one solid reliable piece at our wedding banquet which our guests had a lot of fun with (aside from the delicious food, so I've heard - groom didn't get to eat lol) was the Photo and Video Booth from Memento Strip. Bao and his team showed up early to setup to ensure everything was running smoothly. In addition we had wanted both a Video and Photo Booth for our guests to both record messages and take pictures - because space was limited, Bao, during his consultation with us, was able to customize a booth that had both functions in one - this really helped our space issue and allowed us space for our wishing tree without sacrificing the video messages. Service was great, the attendant was friendly and helpful the entire time, prints came out quickly in high quality and the double prints worked well for our many guests. After the banquet the Memento Strip team even stayed a little bit later and helped us with a few odd and ends! We will undoubtedly be using Memento Strip for our next event!

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.
