We hired Nabor for my son's senior picture photo shoot. He was extremely personable and professional throughout the session. He had an excellent eye for outfits, poses, and lighting that translated into so many proofs that I'm still struggling to choose between them 5 days later! I would highly recommend Nabor for a portrait or headshot session - update your LinkedIn profile today with a professional portrait!
Brian and I worked together to create a portrait image for a tattoo magazine cover. There are many great shots and we had a fun time. I plan to hire Brian in the future as the need arises. He exceeded my expectations.
Sybex was on time and was able to accommodate the crowd going into the booth. Ruben worked on our template for our photos and it came out great. He came with props and made sure the guests kept a photo and signed our guest book while putting a copy of the photo with their message to us. One suggestion I would make is when purchasing a Guest book/photo album through them please use a book for the occasion. I will be buying another scrapbook that is wedding themed instead of using the green/pink one they provided. But overall great service and price!
We just did our family portrait with Sheila. She is amazing!!! She were at location on time and with a happy spirit. She captured beautiful images. We definitely will do business again. I highly recommend her.
It was such a pleasure working with Adam & Hanna. They were flexible when we were running late due to a makeup artist mishap & were great in getting our puppy within our engagement photos. They sent us a link to sample photos the very next day, which turned out beautifully. I would highly recommend them!
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!
I was in need of an updated portrait photo for use in my marketing materials. I scheduled a session with Jennifer and I'm so thrilled with the photos she took. She just has that gift of capturing you at your best. She provided me with my photos very quickly. I will definitely contact her for my future photography needs.
Eric produced a very professional looking portrait photograph for me. He took the time to understand what I was looking for and was meticulous in adjusting the lighting and the angle to get the right shot. I appreciated his attention to detail, responsiveness, and prompt delivery. Thanks, Eric!
If you’re reading this to find out more about Oaktown Boudoir... STOP! Just email Chesire and DO IT! I wanted to make a boudoir book for my fiancé as a wedding day gift. I started my search initially through Groupon which then led me to Yelp and finally Oaktown Boudoir. I emailed and Chesire quickly responded. He was extremely helpful in answering all my questions and helping me set up an appointment to meet and plan for the photo shot. Please don’t mistaken his quick response as a pressure to do business but rather his enthusiasm (not once did I feel pressured). He offered exactly what I had envision for the gift (a small fold out accordion book to be given on the wedding day). We quickly clicked and planning was absolutely a breeze. Don’t be fooled by the studio and it’s “small appearance” from the outside. Inside is amazing. The studio has many different rooms and Chesire is able to recreate any backdrop you envision. I looked to his Instagram page to provide samples of what I wanted. During our initial meet we planned out the different pictures I would like to have taken and discusses timing to utilize natural lighting as much as possible. Now for the actual day...I was so nervous. It’s not everyday I’m taking photos in lingerie, let alone in front of strangers. Hair and Make Up was completed by his Artist Thuy. They have been working together and you can tell by the chemistry they have. She worked on my hair and make up and was a complete sweet heart. She was absolutely so sweet. Completed my make up and made me feel simply amazing. To calm my nerves he has an array of beverages and the bubbly. Oh wait did I mention a cheese, crackers and fruit platter?!?!?! Music was playing while we got ready. He ever contacted me before to inquire about my music taste so he could make a personalized playlist for the photo shot. The photo shot was amazing. Thuy stayed and helped with my hair and make up in between photos to ensure I looked amazing. We shot for several hours but only because Chesire wanted to complete and be able to take all the pictures I wanted. If you’re wondering about the extra time and if I had to pay extra...he didn’t charge me. He wanted to make sure he got all the photos and I would be happy (I just made sure I included a tip to make up for some of the time) The pictures came back rather quickly and boy were they amazing!!! He not only captured my natural bubbly self but also captured this seductive-lip-biting-bra off side I didn’t even know I had!!! When it came down to picking out the photos for the book...it was so hard because we had sooo many good photos but Chesire definitely took the time to help me pick out the photos and was extremely patience with all my corrections and edits. We probably made about 10 different drafts before we settled on a final book. If you’re wondering what my fiancé thought of the book...some things are better left as a secret ;)
Very pleased with Steve's services for my business portrait photos. Excellent profession work. Very detailed and efficient. I have received many complements on the finished product. No hesitation in highly recommending Steve for your photography needs!
Chris was a fantastic event photographer! He was punctual, professional, polite, and his photos are beautiful. He got a ton of great shots both portrait style and candid photos. Love it!
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.
Alex IS AMAZING!!! Talented, patient, soft spoken, flexible and super creative. We are not much of a photogenic people on the first place, and my husband doesn't really like to take pictures. But our photos turned out better than we hoped every single time! And we are so happy that we've created wonderful memories to look back at thanks to Alex. From lovebirds photo shoot to maternity, to baby pictures and family portraits, Alex was able to capture incredible moments and details. And he is so good with capturing kids! Those moments of sweet smiles and silly giggles that you can almost hear through the picture are priceless. We had wonderful time every time we took pictures, I don't think there was a single photo we didn't love. I can't say enough of how happy we are to have Alex as our photographer. Now with another baby coming up in super exited and can't wait to create more memories. I would highly recommend Alex! You will not be disappointed!
He's super easy to work with & doesn't mind others coming along to support & help you with portrait designs! DEFINITELY would recommend to all my friends & family for any photography event
We had Nic for a small get together, and he did a great job capturing our event. He reached the location half hour ahead of schedule (to set up) and was very flexible about the timing. He was easy to work with and showed a lot of energy and enthusiasm. He has a great eye and timing for portraits. The best part, he gave us the final product in two days! Definitely recommend hiring him for your next event.
Rick took my family portrait ( 20 people include 7 kids which are under 10) and did a very good job. He was very patient with kids and took all the time to get very good pictures. Anteneh
We are very happy with our family portraits from Irina! We haven't had a Christmas card in years and we are proud to finally send ours out with the photos she took. She was super responsive, friendly, and gave us our pictures back really quickly. Great price too. Would highly recommend her :)
Steven is a talented photographer, who puts a lot of attention and detail into his photography and editing. He's receptive to feedback and will keep shooting until you get the shot you want. He has a lot of experience working with both natural lighting and strobes. I've worked with Steven multiple times for both portrait and fashion photography, and his work never fails to impress me.
Wenyuan is very punctual and friendly. He is good with kids. He clicked pictures for my son's 1st Birthday party and even few family portraits. The pictures were amazing and he captured nice moments. I would recommend Wenyuan to everyone looking out for a good photographer.
Karla did a fantastic job with my daughter for her graduation portraits! She took a genuine interest in her subject, and produced gorgeous photos that I will treasure. I cannot recommend her enough!
Lynna is a dedicated and generous photographer. Her presence is kind, caring, thoughtful, and compassionate. She has a great attention to detail while still maintaining an air of humor, and is amazing at keeping things fun and creative. My whole family loves her, and all our family portraits are done by her. Lynna travels to us, and is always ready to try new concepts and locations. We are so grateful and feel so fortunate to have her share her abilities to capture every essence of our personalities and relationships.
