Brian and I worked together to create a portrait image for a tattoo magazine cover. There are many great shots and we had a fun time. I plan to hire Brian in the future as the need arises. He exceeded my expectations.

Adam and Hanna are the best photographers we ever had! They did an outstanding job during our wedding! They were there taking all the pictures we wanted but they never got in the way. They are a wonderful married couple and so friendly and easy to work with and very professional at the same time. The quality of their photographs is of the highest order! We are so happy we chose them. We give Adam and Hanna our highest recommendation for your wedding or for any major event you have.

I've had the chance to use Martino's services last month, when I needed to do the commercial photo shoot of a new outdoor bench. I greatly appreciated his work and would highly recommend it for anyone needing a freelance quality photographer. Before the photo shoot, Martino has been very reactive to emails, understanding of our needs and proactive to have everything ready by the D-day (including reserving a blue screen for our white background shots). During the photo shoot, Martino made things very easy for us. He went through all the desired shots with precision and rapidity, easily switching from one spot to the other and adapting to our environment constraints. His easy-going and friendly temper made the work very enjoyable and helped being natural facing the camera. Martino also arrived right on time and made sure we had all our shots done before leaving. After the photo shoot, Martino did a great work at retouching pictures. The end results exceeded our expectations, considering the short time period (3,5 hours of shooting), the very bright afternoon light for outdoor shots and low luminosity for indoor shots. The whole deal was set at a very fair price too considering the amount of work and time flexibility. It feels great in the end!

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!

Eli is an awesome photographer. I’ve used his services for both professional pictures I needed for LinkedIn and for family portraits. My nieces and nephews pictures for the fall season were so amazing, everyone in our family wanted copies of them. He’s easy going and down to earth, yet professional. I’ll continue using Eli for all my photography needs.

STOP reading this review and hire Paulina immediately! She is so professional, responsive, punctual, and technically great that it is hard to believe that she could be so warm, personable, and reassuring too! From the moment we met Paulina, we knew we were going to hire her. Her bubbly personality and enthusiasm made us even more excited for our own event. On the day of our wedding, she was perfectly on time and directed us through a beautiful and fun "first look." Sometimes it feels awkward to have a photographer taking pictures through an event, but Paulina integrated so well into the crowd that everyone thought that she was one of our friends...at the end of the evening no one wanted her to go! I'm sure that there are many good photographers out there for hire, but if you want someone truly special, who will be part of your team, and make your special day even more special, then look no further. She is truly one of a kind. Thank you Paulina!!!

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.

I could not be more pleased with my pictures Rachel took of my daughter. She went above and beyond to make sure I got exactly what I was looking for. The only problem is now I have too many beautiful pictures and not enough frames :)

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!
