Nabor Godoy was fantastic. I needed a headshot for work on short notice. He more than delivered! He has a great studio in downtown San Francisco. I got there and he was ready. We went over lighting and backdrop options. I am not very good at smiling for the camera, but he brought out the best in me. He is good natured and talented! We did a series of shots and then paused to look. He and I talked about the work I do and agreed which photo was best. He said he’d work a bit on the shading and wow, two hours later I had it. It was great — better than I expected, and much better than anything I might ask a friend to do on an I-phone. Totally satisfied.

I’m not sure I will be able to fully express what an incredible photographer Michael is. My sister found him through internet search for my (surprise) engagement in Napa. She had a few photographers in mind; however, she was most impressed by Michael’s professionalism, prompt response and flexibility…. and of course AMAZING photography portfolio – as are my fiancé and I! Firstly, he is a laid back person that exudes positive energy, which definitely helped my fiancé and I be more playful during the photo session. Since we were visitors, he chose the location, which was both beautiful and convenient for us. Michael was also flexible to change the session time, an absolute brilliant idea because the photos came out phenomenal – romantic, artistic, just perfect!! Michael, thank you so much for spending the afternoon with us and I look forward to have you as our wedding photographer, maternity and whatever wonderful, memorable events we may have in the near future. If you’ve read other review, you probably know that Michael Keel is the best but just in case you have second thoughts because you want your photos to be the absolute best, let me reassure you : get Michael, you won’t regret it !!

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.

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.

I did a week trip with Chantelle as a photo group, and she was extremely thorough with every photographer, and was able to fulfill each and everyone's very different needs and styles that were appropriate for each shoot. Her style will meet your expectations every time, as she is hard working, and dedicated to making her clients more than satisfied with her fabulous work.

I highly recommend Patrick Power! I needed a professional portrait for a legal job application, and I hadn't had one taken in over 20 years. I wanted it to be professional, but also unique. I wasn't sure how to find a photographer, so I just put out a bid on thumbtack. Patrick responded very quickly and with a very reasonable price. I had resigned myself to just getting a studio portrait with a neutral background, but Patrick had the idea of meeting at City Hall to take the photo. I was very nervous and self-conscious about the process. I don't like having my picture taken and I am not very photogenic. It helped that City Hall was full of other photographers taking pictures of brides, grooms, and other people like me, so I didn't really stand out. I had a problem and ended up being pretty late to our meeting, but Patrick was very nice about it. I was sweating like crazy in my suit, but he did a good job of putting me at ease and letting me rest and cool down for a little bit white while he staked out spots to take the photo. He talked with me casually about what I was looking for in the photo, but we also made small talk about our lives and work, so that soon I felt very comfortable with him. As a result, I looked very natural in the photo. Patrick took a lot of shots, and several of them were quite good. I needed the work done on very short notice, including a print. I made the bid on a Sunday, we did the photo shoot on Monday, and I had the print by Tuesday morning. I love the photo, and my family and friends do too. Everyone agreed that not just my appearance, but also my personality comes through in the photo. I will definitely call Patrick again if I need another photo taken in the future!

Ahhhh, I absolutely love our photos! Andrea photographed our daughter's first birthday party. She was an absolute pro, on time, low maintenance, sleuth-y. :) The images are amazing and she gave us soooo many. (So often photographers only give 10-20 as part of the rate, but Andrea shared over 200 with us.) She was lovely, talented, and responsible. I would hire her again and so should you!

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.

We put on corporate events in cities across the country and having high-quality photos is critical to our business. For the past two years we've had the pleasure of working with Cheshire on several occasions and he's by far one of the best photographers we've worked with. We are most impressed with his ability to capture the spirit and energy of our events with great attention to detail. We have no doubt that you'll have a great experience working with Cheshire!

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 had the opportunity to work with Ananda twice. The first time was when she took my professional photographs, which were unbelievable. The second time she asked me and my fiancé to help her build her portfolio, so we did a couples shoot. Ananda offered to give us the pictures for free, but because they were so amazing we wanted to pay her, she deserved it. Ananda is so talented and creative, and has an amazing eye for the 'money' shots. My fiancé and I have the pictures Ananda took all over our house, they are timeless treasures. I am so excited to work with Ananda again in the near future. She is a wonderful person and a true professional. She is a perfectionist. You will not be disappointed in her work.

We hired Larry for our company event, he is very responsible, provides great work with excellent price. A lot of other photographers will try make extra by not providing a full service, with him all the planning and post editing are included. Larry is also great that when we were setting up the venue, he arrived early to help, as well as staying late to help us clean up. Great guy!

JP is awesome. He is punctual, and knows his craft. He’s not about the money, he’s about the art. JP takes his time to get you the best shot, he’s not in a hurry and makes sure everything is perfection. Hands down the best photographer I’ve ever worked with. Being in the real estate field, I’ve worked with ALOT.
