I recently got acting headshots from Brian. It was great working with him! He was very friendly, and I felt comfortable enough to try out some awesome expressions/poses/etc. We would do a series of shots, then look at them on his laptop so that I could see what was working and what wasn't and adjust accordingly. With previous photographers, they would just do a bunch of shoots, then show me the photos online the next day. Brian found a great hair and makeup professional who made me look and feel beautiful! And finally, I appreciated that Brian was really flexible about timing, editing, background setup, etc. Thanks Brian!

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.

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!

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!

Irina is the best! We had a great experience with her! She is a real professional! She made the most adorable photoshoot of our baby boy. My baby doesn't sleep well during the day, so I was not sure we can make it. Irina came with whole bunch of props for the photo session and calmed my baby to sleep easily. I was surprised that she really know how to soothe the fussy baby)) And the photos came so beautiful, great quality! We can't stop looking at them! Thank you!

Looking for a wedding photographer on line, my fiancé and I were drawn to the pictures taken by Lorinda Keller, the owner of 831images. Amazingly, she was available on our wedding day. All of her reviews raved her praises. All the reviews were spot on, Lorinda more than exceeded our high expectations. Due to prior changes in our wedding day schedule Lorinda accommodated us by splitting our day into two sessions so that we could get all the photo coverage we wanted but still stay within our budget. This allowed us to have photos of our ceremony and with our guests. We did not have to disappear and leave our guest to get our couple photos. Lorinda made a special trip to return later so that we could do our couple shots after our guests had left and during the ideal sunset lighting. Getting everything we wanted within our limited budget was an exceptional gift. Lorinda also surprised us with returning with printed pictures from the ceremony. She even presented us with a beautifully framed photo capturing our happy moment. Everyone was so shocked that she had a chance to do all of this for us. She was even professionally prompt on an extreme high traffic and no parking day in Carmel. From the second we met Lorinda we felt at ease. Her delightful personality was a joy to be around. My groom and I, were having a small intimate wedding due to our shyness about being the center of attention. We were expecting that having our wedding photos taken was something we would have to suffer through. Boy were we wrong. After two hours of taking photos on the beach we could not stop talking about how much fun we had with Lorinda. She made the experience an unexpectedly enjoyable time that we will always treasure. Lorinda had an amazing ability to give her subjects directions while still keeping a light hearted vibe to achieve the premium result. Not only did Lorinda put us and our guests at ease but she also had great energy around our dogs. Our two Belgian Malinois are very suspicious of new people, especially if they are holding objects like a camera. In order to have them part of our ceremony we thought we would have to put up with lots of barking. Lorinda was so terrific with our dogs that they never barked at her. She was also very gracious about maneuvering around the guest dogs in attendance. She went above and beyond in getting special shots with the dogs that lived at the venue for a special gift for us to give the home owners. It takes an exceptional talent for a stranger to put dogs at ease in order to take their photo. We highly recommend Lorinda for shots of your furry friends, in addition to all your professional photo needs. If you want to have fun while getting direction so you get the most flattering, unique and artistic photos then call Lorinda.

I am so grateful to have had Lynna as my “life” photographer for the past couple years. She started out doing mini-sessions for us for our yearly holiday card, and it quickly evolved into our daughter’s birthday parties, maternity and family photoshoots as well. We have used her to help us document every major milestone that we have been embarking as a family. She is always so professional, open to ideas, scouts out locations, and is great with kids. She makes you feel comfortable when shooting and captures the moment quickly. She is a pleasure to work with and her rates are reasonable as well for the quality and quantity of work that she provides. We always come away with plenty of images to use and print. I highly recommend her and feel very fortunate to have used her over the years and will continue to do so.

It was an absolutely wonderful experience working with Kavya. She was very professional and gave great advice during the photo shoot. Only a few days after the event, not only she sent me more pictures than we agreed, but also she added her professional touch to all of them without any extra charge! This was the first time I used Thumbtack and as I am not very tech savvy, I had a hard time to respond to her messages. Kavya patiently walked me through every step including how to submit payment. All the pictures turned out great too.

Well what can I say, Karman is a great photographer, person and friend. He makes you feel so comfortable in the skin you're in, you don't care if you're half naked in the process! He works with you on what you're comfortable with as well as after with the photo packages and what price range you can work with etc. Also I can't give enough props to Sara Dashty for her amazing hair and makeup for the shoot. She charges $120 for both, which is really good if your go to anyone else. She works fast and is very personable in the process. I love her! She is the sweetest and amazing at what she does. I love the before and after transformation. I have to shout out to Kamran's help team. I talked with Courtney, who gave me all the information I needed or would have asked about. She gave me all the answers in a very timely manner. I did two boudoir sessions. My first was last February for my now fiancés birthday present. After hair and makeup, the session lasted about 4 hours. It was long, but so worth it and I loved every minute of it. He helps you pick your outfits out and gives you advice as to what would look good etc. We ended up with over 300 photos that were great! How was I supposed to pick from them? lol I purchased individual photos and my Fiancé loved his present and still to this day shows everyone that he can! It's funny, but I'm used to it now. I had such a great time last time, my fiancé said I should get another session. So I did and again, Kamran didn't disappoint. I brought different outfits this time and wanted to try a few things differently, and he said let's go for it and he always gets excited when you're excited. The shoot went great and I'm glad we did different poses, outfits and a few different ideas. The photos look great and I can't wait to get the prints! My fiancé is going to fall in love all over with me again when he see these photos! I didn't think I could do modeling before, but now everyone tells me I could totally do modeling, because of the photos by Kamran! I feel more invincible, sexy, womanly and ready to pounce, on my man! lol Thank you Kamran for amazing photos yet again and giving me even more self-confidence than before! I highly recommend stepping out of your comfort zone and just book a session with Kamran. He will make it worth your time

Working with Leslie was fantastic - she was very responsive to all my questions in advance of the shoot, easily wrangled our group of six adults, two dogs and one baby, and the final photos were wonderful! I absolutely recommend her.

After speaking with a few local photographers, Chris not only had the cleanest/well working website but he also left the best impression over the phone. Very personable and easy to communicate with. He was also able to fit me in the next day (Friday) to do my business portraits. Doing a photo shoot like this was way out of my comfort zone however, Chris made it fun and easy. Not only that but he had the proofs for me to review within a few hours of the end of our session. Not to my surprise the quality of the pictures, lighting and setting were top notch. I will recommend GoodEye Photogrpahy whenever possible and will continue to work with Chris moving forward. 5 stars and nothing less
