Brian shot our baby shower and did a wonderful job. We hosted the event in the back room of a restaurant which ended up being pretty tight but Brian managed to navigate the space and capture some really wonderful candid photos of our guests. He also took photos of my wife, dog and me at our home which we were also pleased with. I have used much more expensive photographers in the past and I would say that Brian's work stacked up well against any of them.

I interviewed about 15 photographers to try to find the perfect one and I finally did! I had a lot of specific requests that I wanted photos and video footage of many special things so that my video can turn out the way I want it to and give a specific story,both Ruben and Omar jumped in no problem! They were always around me whenever I needed and it was fast and easy to get pictures with everyone and not waste time. I can not wait to are the final product! So far the preview pictures I have got have had emotion and been beautiful! Here is a picture of my husband and dad and probably one of my favorite photos ever now! I really suggest using these guys... I have already had 3 friends from the wedding ask for their contact information! They won't disappoint!

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!

Doug did our wedding at SF City Hall and we were very pleased with his services. He was much more affordable than most other photographers we considered and was very pleasant to work with. He showed up to the location a couple hours before we did just to prepare and make sure he knew all the best places to shoot. When we arrived he took pictures as we stepped out of the limo and then through the entire affair. We think the photos turned out great. He also charged one fee for the whole shoot, which was as low as others charged hourly. Overall very friendly, well prepared and provided professional services at an unbeatable price.

Jeff was smart, prepared, and professional. I selected him over other photographers because my impression was that he approached a job with the customer's needs at heart, and his work at our event certainly bore that out. He communicated well, was unobtrusive and helpful, and oh by the way he took some wonderful pictures of people engaged and working together at our event. You will enjoy working with Jeff, I promise.

Allan is of the best photographers I have ever worked with. His punctuality, friendly demeanor, faithfulness, and passion for capturing memories that will last a lifetime are his best qualities in business. He has all the right equipment, talent, and skill, and comes at a great price! I used him for my graduation photos and now use one of his photos for my linked in profile picture. He's an awesome guy and I'm really glad I hired him!

Kathleen Schwartz is our go-to photographer for our real estate projects and advertising. Her natural "eye" for the best shot, and the patience to get it is the hallmark of her work. She is completely reliable and dedicated to producing the highest results. We use her without hesitation for our most important clients and would be lost without her.

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!

They were AWESOME! They brought on a third photographer to help when they realized the size of the wedding events. They made suggestions where they knew better with their expertise and it worked out better than perfect - I.e. when the best time to take family photos. They were on time and ready to go with very creative pictures. I haven’t received my photos or video yet (it’s onky been 1 month today) but I have no doubt they will blow me away. THANK YOU!!!

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.

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Amanda and having her take some pictures of me. I typically do not like having my picture taken, but she created an environment in which I felt comfortable and relaxed. She has a very pleasant personality and the quality of her photography left me feeling extremely satisfied with the overall experience.

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.

Kavya could not have done a better job with our engagement photos! She was prompt to reply and arrange a rather quick appointment with us as we were on a deadline. She was friendly and professional throughout the shoot, providing the right amount of suggestions/tips to get the perfect shots without being overbearing. She is also quite adventurous, climbing down rocks with camera in hand to get to a beach in order to get the perfect shot! I ended up with so many great pictures that she sent within 2 days after the shoot. I would definitely recommended her for all your photography needs.

David's work as a photographer was so intuitive and creative. Every shot seemed to jump off the page. His ability to capture light and shadows made every shot look like a work of art. I would highly recommend him.
