Lawrence was terrific to work with. He went well above and beyond the initial request to provide me with an excellent experience and portfolio of photos to enjoy for the rest of my life. Lawrence took photos of a surprise proposal for my now fiancee. He offered to meet me in SF the day before the date of the event to map out the plan in person together. He arrived 30 minutes early on the day of the event and snapped 100+ excellent & candid photos of the proposal. He then stayed with us for another hour after the proposal to take more staged engagement photos, and even met us again later that evening to capture different lighting and allow us to change clothes. The initial quote was simply for an hour of his time on the day of the proposal.

I can't say enough how happy we are with Michael as our wedding photographer. He did both our engagement photos and our wedding photos and, although it is still too soon for us to have gotten all of our wedding photos back yet I am confident they will come out amazing (just like our engagement photos did and the sneak peak photo of our wedding that he has already sent us). In addition to skills as a photographer I would also recommend michael for his laid back and fun personality that really helped us to just relax and be normal on our wedding day!

Thomas did a great job capturing our wedding at Wine & Roses in Lodi! Very professional and friendly person. He was never in the way or distracting like I have seen with other wedding photographers and yet he was still able to take so many amazing and memorable photos. Thank you!

Cindy was amazing. I hired her to photograph our engagement in Napa. I was from out of town and did not know the area. I picked a park near our hotel. Cindy got to the park early to scout the location. She found that it wasn't ideal and scouted a new location that was PERFECT! She really went the extra mile. On top of that the photos look perfect and she got them to us the next day. Would recommend Cindy for any event.

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.

Jen was fantastic in ever way possible and we absolutely love the pictures she took for us! She was great for our engagement photos and then if possible was even better at the wedding. My wife and I love our time and experience with Jen. She was very professional when it came to communicating with us and made sure we would get every photo we could think of and was very prepared before the wedding day ever came. During the wedding day she went above and beyond our expectations, arriving in plenty of time to get a lay of our venue and stayed to the end to capture our "good bye" moment! During the ceremony and reception, based on her fantastic pictures, it seamed like she was everywhere yet we never seamed to notice her as we were so caught up in our wonderful evening. She was the perfect photographer and we could not be happier with our choice to include Jen in our wedding day!

I've hired many photographers in the past for various events such as wedding, corporate parties and other events and William J Simpson trumps all of them by far! I knew I would enjoy his artistic take on photography and I love his eye for great moments and angles. Who knew it would take a first birthday party to finally find the right photographer! :) He was very punctual, responded quickly to my emails, and such a joy to work with during the event. Professional and personal at the same time. You won't regret hiring him for your next project or event. I know I'll be coming back to him for future events!

I don't even know where to begin. Melissa was FANTASTIC! I joked with her that she was the best decision I made for my wedding day aside from marrying my husband. She was a pleasure to talk to leading up to the event to help plan out the day. She went straight to work and was not disruptive at all, if anything she made our day more enjoyable. Such a positive spirit to be around, everyone in my family loved her presence. She wasn't pushy and let us do our own thing but gave us input and advice on where and how to pose. She gave me my photos faster than I could even process my wedding day! I AM OBSESSED with my pictures. They look ethereal because of her special touch with lighting and glow. If you're looking for a photographer for any event, you can stop looking and hire Melissa now!

Thank you Avant-Garde for capturing the most important parts of our event!!! Not only was our engagement beautifully photographed, the little details that most photographers leave out were not missed. His pricing is very fair and affordable. I have him booked for my upcoming wedding in May as well.

Frank was our photographer for our wedding at the iconic city hall in San Francisco. Working with Frank was a pleasure and we couldn't be happier with the results. The images he took of our ceremony and of us as a family in city hall are now cherished heirlooms. Frank was professional throughout the entire process, he was the first person to arrive at city hall (he was early) and he took a creative approach throughout, not only taking photos of the ceremony but he also took beautiful shots of the the environment and candid photos of our family going with us through the whole process. Upon completion of the ceremony Frank promptly shared with us the results which included not only the raw camera files, but a complete set of color corrected and edited photos. The results are stunning. I highly recommend working with Frank should you need a photographer. Jhanette, Oakland, CA
