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!

Great value for the price! Highly recommended if you want someone who knows what they are doing. We reviewed many different photographers and Sybex Studio really stood out from the rest. We were able to seal the deal with the awesome pricing. Thank you again Ruben for being very helpful.

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.

Dennis is the most creative, artistic and nice photographer you will ever work with. Each one of his photos are a piece of art that you will treasure forever. He has a true talent that rarely exists in photographers, he can bring out the best in any format photo--dance portraits, family shots and professional pictures. The only hard part is choosing which photos you like best. He is so easy to work with and works day and night to get your order done right and on time. He is awesome!

Nic came ahead of time on the day of the event. He coordinated well with the photographer. We hired him for the raw footage of the event and highlights video. He was very responsive over email, and provided raw footage of the event within a week. Highlight video contained well selected scenes.

Mike did a great job capturing my proposal to my girlfriend. I wanted to propose during sunset in Carmel somewhere with view of the ocean, but wasn't too familiar with the area. Mike offered to scope out a couple spots and we decided on a very private area with a spectacular view. He was very easy to work with and extremely quick to respond to my emails. Since it was a surprise, Mike and his wife arrived early to stake out the spot and looked like any other couple at the beach taking photos. They captured every moment of my proposal and took a few shots afterwards (she said yes!). I got the pictures the next day and they turned out great! So happy with the experience, and would highly recommend Mike.

Working with Irina was easy from start to finish. We set a date that I had to postpone a couple times because I was sick. When I showed up for the shoot Irina spring into action. She gave good direction and tried a number of different poses. I didn't know how the photos would turn out, but she has a good eye and knows how to bring out the best in the subject. I was more than pleased with the photos. I have worked with other photographers and haven't enjoyed those experiences. This was a great experience and worth the fee!

Lynna is completely amazing and we definitely plan to use her services for our next family photo shoot. We planned for another location, but due to rain we had a make a quick plan B the night before. She was so flexible in making sure we would have the correct venue for the shots, especially since I only wanted outdoor shots. We opted for Stanford's campus since they have large overhangs to protect us from the rain and with the natural light and architecture, it was perfect. She gave us good direction, which can be hard with a photo shoot of 3 sets of family- grandparents, two sons with their wives and 3 toddlers! She handled all the personalities seamlessly and made everyone feel comfortable and heard. We did many traditional family shots, but my favorites were the candid shots. She was able to capture the candid, pure smiles, and laughs of my daughters; to me, that is priceless and the main reason for hiring a photographer instead of the big box photo studio type pictures. She took many shots so we had dozens to choose from, it actually made it tough to narrow down what we would put on our Christmas cards and blow up for wall decorations! Lynna is the best at capturing life! Thank you, Lynna!

I was going to engage my girlfriend and being new in San Francisco I had no idea of where to find the perfect nature location. I asked Rob to do photography for me and he suggested the Perfect location for our big day and moment. The level of professionalism and patience he showed were out of this world. I will recommend him to anyone who requires a photographer. Thank you so much Rawkboy Media.

Wayne was great! He met us on a Saturday. Gave us a timeline and finished even before his estimate. We are very happy we had him restore this very old family photograph from the 1920's that was damaged. Definitely recommend!

Working with Glen was a great experience. I've been modeling for the past 6 years and he's definitely in my top list of best photographers to work with. I felt very comfortable all the time, and the final shoots look great. He was so good that the pics were chosen to be in a magazine next month. I look forward to work with him again.

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

I highly recommend Peppermintph to everyone! Flor (the photographer) was amazing! She was very patient and caring. After she showed me the final pictures she took of my family I was so grateful that I found her. My family and friends have given us so many compliments on the pictures Flor took. I cannot say how much I am thankful and happy she is our photographer! I will keep using her services for life!
