Ruben and his team were responsive and punctual at our event. We were a little tight on deadline but Sybex Studio luckily had the day open and provided excellent service. If you are looking for photography services, look no further.

The photo booth was a big hit. I'm very happy with the quality and professionalism of Doug Fairbairn Photography. We got photo strips the night of the event and received a link to the electronic files for viewing and downloading the next day. Would book them again.

Working with Stavan has been the most wonderful experience, he is professional, punctual and very talented. The photos are of superb quality and editing is to the finesse! When we recieved the photos that Stavan shot of our wedding, we were speechless. He made us look like stars! The lighting affects were specially really remarkable. I highly recommend Stavan, of vision infinie photography, to shoot your special day ! You will be in good hands.

Our Annual Awards Ceremony is a very important event to our organization and to our members. Jeff's professional work ethic and his willingness to go the extra mile to get great candid shots were perfect. And I was so impressed by how fast he turned the shareable gallery around for us to share with our members. We will use Jeff for all of our professional photography needs!

We are very happy with Chris and his works. He came on time, covered all the guests and the decoration, was very friendly with the guests while taking their pictures, and took excellent photos. We didn't have enough lighting in our party hall, which is a challenge for photography. But the photos Chris took have come out absolutely gorgeous. My experience was really great. I would highly recommend Wowza Photography.

Allan was the photographer for my Senior Clarinet Recital poster. I loved the unique shots and angles he caught of me. He had a very clear vision on poses, backgrounds, and lighting that I agreed with. In addition to photography, he also does poster editing. I am excited to put them up!

We had a photography session with Nicholas for our wedding anniversary. We have done this a couple of times before and I can say that this time the photos came out really great. He paid attention to all the details and helped us with posing which was really important for me (he had lots of great ideas). He also spent enough time for us and did not rush for finishing the session. He is also very nice and friendly. Overall, I highly recommend him and I am sure you will be very satisfied with his service.

We selected Letty Sloma Photography to take my daughter's Senior portraits. Letty met us at the location we chose in Monterey. She was so much fun to work with! She made it very easy for my daughter to relax in front of the camera and showed her how to pose and look natural. She took so many great pictures that it was very hard to choose which ones we liked the best. We were very pleased with the quality and value of her work and would highly recommend her, you will not be disappointed!

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.

I've been a member of Screen Actors Guild for 40 years and desperately needed new head shots. Paul took the time to understand what I needed, reviewed several locations and spent a half a day shooting several hundred shots from which I selected a half dozen. My agent told me that they were the best shots they had seen more importantly I was cast for several commercials based on the strength of the pictures Paul took. I strongly recommend Paul Grant Photography for any project you might have.

Lynna did our maternity photo shoot and I was very, VERY happy with the end result. It was hard to pick my favorite because I had so many. Personally, I wouldn’t say I am very photogenic, and a lot of times I look awkward in photos, but Lynna really knows how to capture my good angles. Also, because she is so goofy and down to earth, she knows how to make me laugh to get that natural smile. ​ On the technical side, she is definitely talented and has the photography skills, with regards to lighting, background, and she knows the good spots around town, etc, so you don’t need to worry about that. At the same time, she is open to your suggestions, such as what kind of mood do you want your photos to portray? Romantic? Playful? Casual and laid back? Just let her know! She takes your personality into account and will work with you so that you will have your perfect photo shoot; she’s super easy to work with and I felt so comfortable with her. She is definitely going to be our go-to photographer for future life moments. In fact, I just booked her for our son’s 1 year birthday shoot, and I am hoping she can do our destination wedding photoshoot as well. I can’t recommend her enough! You won’t be disappointed. ​ — the Ryan family
