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.

Doug and Melinda went above and beyond for my wedding. It rained on my wedding day but that didn't stop our photographers from taking beautiful rain shots, it actually added to the magic! We originally wanted photos at the Palace of Fine Arts but that wouldn't have worked out with the rain, so we came up with a plan B after the wedding ceremony and Doug was flexible with the sudden change. Later that day, my mother and my aunt could not figure out how to pin my bustle, Melinda stepped in like a pro and saved the day! Not only are they great photographers but they really helped us keep the flow of the wedding. We saw a preview of our wedding photo gallery and it was beautiful, we cannot wait to see all of the photos and create our album. We especially loved the candid shots during the wedding ceremony as well as the rain shots.

Stavan and his team were the photographers and videographer at our wedding a couple of weeks ago in Gilroy CA. They were reliable, energetic, personable, very creative and professional in every way. The showed us on time. Every guest was impressed how approachable they were. We can't wait to see the photos! My wife is counting down the dates to get the pictures and I feel sure they are going to amaze us! I will return with more reviews after we get the pictures and videos.

Adam and Hanna were our Wedding Photographers in November 2016. Everything was very professional from the first time we met them, email communication in between, and on the day of our wedding. They were specific in asking us which photos we desired to be taken and were careful to take these and more! We were very impressed by the results and the price. Adam and Hanna provided us with incredible, professionally done photos that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Everyone we show our photos to are amazed at the quality. There's no one else out there who charges a great, low price with high quality! I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

Steve Fogel was the main photographer at my wedding. He was timely and interested in the style of photos I was looking for. He was focused on getting shots with great framing and flattering lighting. Steve was easy to work with and really wanted to capture the moment. I have enjoyed looking back on the photos over and over. Thank you.

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!

Kathleen went above and beyond photographing our wedding! She is so energetic and up for anything, and it really shows in her photos! She met us girls at the hotel for getting-ready pictures and captured magnificent posed and candid photographs throughout the ceremony and reception. Any time I looked around during the reception, there was Kathleen or her assistant snapping candid photos of me or my guests. Kathleen even volunteered to come take more photos at our after party at the local bar! We were shocked when a week after our wedding, Kathleen sent us links to the final 1300 edited images! The included engagement photo session really helped us to be confident in Kathleen's ability and style and she got a feel for who we were. I highly recommend Kathleen to anyone looking for a wedding photographer - she will not disappoint! I look forward to using Kathleen for family photos in the future!

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!

We are so happy with our wedding photos (all 351 of them) and our wedding video. Our family and friends commented on how they watched it over and over again and how Jonas and Tatiana captured a feeling of love at the event. They came to our venue in Monterey and scouted the venue before our event, so that on day of the wedding they were very prepared to capture our day. They were responsive to all our questions and took in consideration all the things we wanted in our video. We just absolutely love how it turned out. Thank you guys :)

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!

Laurie was such a great photographer. We had her for our San Francisco kids birthday party. She captured every moment and covered more than 50-60 kids each having their special moments. She even climbed into the bouncy house to take picture of them while playing. We would love to work with her again.

We hired Laz for a get together event for my son's graduation. Laz was awesome. He showed up much before time and stayed for the whole event. He took photographs of all of our groups and around the venue. All photographs he uploaded and provided me with the link right after the event where I can download them. Laz was great with my friends and family and he made the whole experience very enjoyable. He was a total Pro and did all this for a very reasonable cost. I plan to hire him for my future events and recommend his to anyone out there.

I am so happy with the graduation photo shoot session I booked with Letty Sloma Photography for both of my children! We planned a session at Chrissy Field and she took amazing shots of the Golden Gate Bridge as the background. It was so hard to choose from all the crisp, clear, different poses Letty took. She clearly has an eye for capturing unique poses. I especially loved the candid shots that captured the personalities of my daughter & son (SFSU graduate and high school senior photo shoot). I will use her in future events!

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
