Albert did a phenomenal job with my wedding video! He was also a delight to work with! He was so patient and worked ever so hard (my wedding was a 12 hour event!) I think the hardest part for him was editing the video and making sure all the highlights I wanted were included in my video. He did not disappoint! I got every clip I wanted, and he incorporated all my favorite music and did everything I had requested. It's been a year since my wedding and recently watched the video again and all the best memories were captured! Thank you Albert for being the most responsive, patient person to work with and developing a quality wedding video that my husband and I (and now our daughter) will always enjoy!!!!
Lawrence was the photographer for our wedding, and we were thoroughly impressed with the job he did. From start to finish, Lawrence brought his obvious skill in, and passion for, photography. In addition, he went above and beyond our expectations, scouting the wedding location in advance to gauge the lighting, doing a fantastic job with the wedding, and even putting together a slide show with music after the event. For any wedding, you want someone who you can trust will do a great job, and Lawrence delivered. Highly recommended!
Brian was an amazing photographer. He is dependable and has positive energy. He made our wedding so special. He is great at candid shots and captured all our special moments. He took all the photos we wanted and more. He met with us before we signed a contract and he visited our venue! He exceeded our expectations. He is organized, professional and hard working. He helped me stay calm day of the wedding and also went over and beyond typical photographer duties. He came to our wedding rehearsal so he had an expectation of the ceremony. He arrived early wedding day and stayed late. Guests commented how nice he was and how hard he was working (ex. Taking pictures the Whole time). He was alway there when we needed him. We highly recommend Brian for anyone looking for a wedding photographer.
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.
Stavan did a great job photographing of our wedding! His pictures were lovely, and plentiful, and he did a great job of getting the right shots without getting in the way (like some photographers). Very highly recommended!
He took photos of my daughters quinceanera (15th bday party). I was pleased with every aspect of his work.... he made sure we were pleased with the photos he took as well as his customer service. I look forward to hiring for my other daughters bday party next year!
We had our pre wedding photoshoot done by Diane and it was a great experience. We were visiting SF for a few days and were wondering if we will be able to capture the essence of the place in the photoshoot, but Diane drove us to the most beautiful places in the city and clicked lifelong memories. We had some pictures clicked with our friends as well and they came out really well. Diane was very flexible and it was fun spending the entire day with her. She made us really comfortable and helped us all along the photoshoot. I will highly recommend her to couples for their wedding and prewedding photoshoots.
Adam and Hanna were our Wedding Photographers in November 2016. Everything was very professional from the first time we met them, email communication in between, and on the day of our wedding. They were specific in asking us which photos we desired to be taken and were careful to take these and more! We were very impressed by the results and the price. Adam and Hanna provided us with incredible, professionally done photos that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Everyone we show our photos to are amazed at the quality. There's no one else out there who charges a great, low price with high quality! I would definitely recommend them to anyone.
Martino was a great wedding photographer! When planning a wedding it is so important to have honest, reliable and responsive vendors. Martino met all of those expectations and was professional, friendly and fun. Wedding photos are such an important part of the wedding day, and it is essential to have a great photographer. We are so happy with the memories that Martino was able to capture and now those special moments will last a lifetime. Thank you Martino!
Eric and Claire were a delight to have as our photographers. Each time we spoke with Eric, he came prepared with ideas on locations. Before the actual day, he scouted out additional locations. We liked his work which is why we picked him. But, our wedding was on Saturday and we've already seen some samples, and we love, love what we've seen so far. Eric is professional, accommodating and his passion for his work is apparent. Even our guests enjoyed his presence at the wedding. We couldn't be happier with our experience of working with him.
If you’ve been waiting for “that one review” to really prove that Oaktown Boudoir is the way to go- don’t wait anymore! Cheshire Isaacs is a true exemplar of all that a professional boudoir photographer should strive to be. He is open and receptive to his client’s ideas without losing focus. He is honest and genuine without ever being insensitive. He is incredibly professional without ever being stuffy. The Bay Area is filled with Boudoir Photographers, so I guess the best way to write a proper review is to outline what exactly my own (popular) concerns were and how Cheshire proved triumphant! 1. Will I be comfortable? As a young woman, I was a little concerned about being erotically photographed by a man. Having been through a shoot, it’s obvious that Cheshire cares- from his personally designed music playlists (made in the interest of making the experience as comfortable as possible) to his handmade cheese and cracker platters. He continually went above and beyond for my session and I admire his passion, enthusiasm, and dedication. It shows in both his beautiful work and the long-lasting relationships he has with his clients. He spoke about his wife and daughter frequently, something that showed me his appreciation and respect for women, immediately putting me at ease. 2. Can his studio fit more than one “style” of photoshoot? Cheshire’s studio is open, bright, and filled with possibilities. He can transform the space to fit, I kid you not, any personality and style. In a matter of minutes (just enough time to refill a wine glass), his studio can go from a brightly lit angelic state to a dark, sexy, and sultry one. He mentioned having custom-designed the space alongside his wife, something that told me just how invested he was in the style and overall vibe of his studio. For my images in particular, I knew that I wanted little editing and wanted the images to be as “real” as possible. Somehow Cheshire still made it look like I was a model and knew exactly how to manipulate each pose to accentuate all the good and cleverly soften all the bad (without photoshop). 3. Will I get my money’s worth? Whichever amount of time you decide to book Cheshire for, know that not a minute will be wasted. He knows how to get down to business and not waste time while simultaneously not rushing through any poses. This guy was sweating as he climbed up and down ladders, moved heavy couches and bed sets, and adjusted lights. His hard work pays off in the beauty of his finished products! His experience in the field is obvious in the way he can quickly evaluate a pose and make small nuanced changes in position to get a desired look. I am but a poor college student and Cheshire’s prices were definitely better than most photographers around. He could easily charge three times as much for his services and would still be the deal of a lifetime. 4. Will my images be published? Cheshire was very thorough and attentive when listening to what I was comfortable with. He assured me that no images would be posted without explicit approval. In the end, his work was so beautiful that I would have been fine with it being printed on billboards and bus ads- really! 5. What about makeup? Cheshire notified me in one of our first correspondences that he had a partnership with a makeup artist, Thuy, who would be on-site for a small fee. Let me tell you- Thuy is more than simply a makeup artist- she really does it all. Not only did she do an absolutely spectacular job with my makeup, but she was the ultimate hype-woman!!! She stayed for nearly the entire session for touch-ups, glamour, and enthusiastic words of support. The experience wouldn’t have been the same without her. Every person that sees the finished images says, “Wow, I wish I’d done something like this.” Don’t be that person! Don’t wait another day, don’t look for another review, don’t google “Boudoir Photographer” again. Oaktown Boudoir is that good. Doing a boudoir shoot is obviously a large lump sum of money to dedicate to something that isn’t necessarily “necessary,” but my experience with Oaktown Boudoir is something that I will truly treasure for the rest of my life and always reflect on with a smile and a deep, deep appreciation for Cheshire Isaacs! He knows how to make a client feel like a friend, and that’s something you don’t come by often.
Daryl was a joy to have as our wedding photographer. He was calm and engaging when getting groups to pose. He seemed to be everywhere, always taking pictures. He made us all feel special, beautiful...handsome. We feel very lucky that we made the decision to hire Daryl and recommend his services to all.
Pleasure working for such a top-notch professional photographer!
Planning a wedding is stressful enough, but not knowing what the results are from the vendors you choose can bring the plans to a standstill. That's where I was before finding Jenn on thumbtack. When she replied to my photography request it was not the estimate that made up my mind; it was the fact that she answered my call! After the first two minutes speaking with her, I knew I found my photographer. Jenn was very upfront with what I could expect from her for the price she was offering. There was nothing that she didn't cover in terms of her contract, the deposit, and the final product. I liked Jenn from the very first moment I spoke with her. Every step of the way she worked with me either by telephone or email. I was fortunate enough that our schedules allowed for a site visit where we had the opportunity to meet in person prior to the big day. Jenn brought her camera and took some "test" shots that she posted on her blog. All I can say is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! Now I was excited for the wedding day! September 3rd finally arrived and I am still bragging to anyone willing to listen about my awesome photographers. Jenn and Shannon were truly a dream to work with. They are super relaxed and not worried about the "perfect picture" but photographing the perfect moment. Jenn and Shannon let my hubby and I call all the shots as far as who and where. Our families were a bit difficult to gather at times, and I worried this could irritate the photographers; not Jenn and Shannon! They made sure that we did not miss our sunset photos and always asked our thoughts on their creative visions. Every once in awhile, Jenn would give me a sneak peek at an amazing shot she just captured! I loved that about her. Anyone thinking of hiring Kept in Time Photography by Jenn & Shannon Mormon will not be disappointed. Their photos are stunning and they are two of the nicest people to work with. I am more than satisfied with the entire experience and will be using them for all future photography needs. Highly recommended by a very happy Bride!!
Kathleen went above and beyond photographing our wedding! She is so energetic and up for anything, and it really shows in her photos! She met us girls at the hotel for getting-ready pictures and captured magnificent posed and candid photographs throughout the ceremony and reception. Any time I looked around during the reception, there was Kathleen or her assistant snapping candid photos of me or my guests. Kathleen even volunteered to come take more photos at our after party at the local bar! We were shocked when a week after our wedding, Kathleen sent us links to the final 1300 edited images! The included engagement photo session really helped us to be confident in Kathleen's ability and style and she got a feel for who we were. I highly recommend Kathleen to anyone looking for a wedding photographer - she will not disappoint! I look forward to using Kathleen for family photos in the future!
Ananda was amazing!! I was running so behind on my wedding day and she was patient and still made sure to get all the poses and group photos. She made it happen as quick as possible and even posted a few sneak peak photos a few days after the wedding.. which obviously I can’t wait to see how the rest turned out! I would recommend her to anyone lookin for a wedding photographer! She super friendly and gets the job done!!
Nicholas did an amazing job capturing all of the special moments and details in our wedding with an articstic eye! Our friends and family are still raving about his work! He was also very accommodating and went above and beyond to film everything we asked for and more. Leading up to the wedding, he was always responsive immediately within the day if not hour and even after the wedding during the editing process he was like this! He has always been professional, polite, and friendly. He got along great with our photographer. He got our wedding video to us very quickly and edited everything beautifully while making sure to cleverly add in our special songs and props. If you are looking for someone professional, creative, friendly, accommodating, and affordable for your special occasions look no further!
Rucha did our engagement photo shoot a couple months back, and she did an outstanding job! We've received many compliments on the photos (lighting, posing, composition). We are excited to have Rucha do our wedding photos in April!
Laurie was such a great photographer. We had her for our San Francisco kids birthday party. She captured every moment and covered more than 50-60 kids each having their special moments. She even climbed into the bouncy house to take picture of them while playing. We would love to work with her again.
Loved working with TC, she is a consummate professional, did our photos, delivered beautiful photos EARLY and we were super pleased. We would not hesitate to give her our best recommendations to anyone needing wedding photography!
Thanks for helping us with our party. The photos came out very well.
