We're very happy with the work that DeNoise Studio did for our wedding. We decided at the very last minute (like two weeks beforehand) that we wanted video of the ceremony, and once we found Albert, he hit the ground running. His promptness and efficiency came through not just during the planning process but after the wedding itself, as the turn-around on producing the video was only a few days! And the video turned out exactly the way we wanted: a very simple and beautiful portrait of a wonderful hour of our lives. Thanks so much, DeNoise!

Nabor Godoy did an amazing job. We went to Berkley to do the couple shoot and the location he took us too was beautiful. Nabor was very patient with us and made us feel comfortable first. He has an excellent eye for photography and takes marvelous shots. He is a perfectionist and is very prompt with his emails and replies. Very warm person and makes sure he gets us shots the way we want them.

What a great choice we made hiring Thomas! We had 100+ people that all wanted individual family portraits and only 1 hour to do it all. Not only did Thomas get every picture we requested, he had time left over for fun pics. Very easy going and non-intrusive. Definitely going to hire him again for our next goat-roping!!

Andrea did an incredible job photographing my 3-day business seminar called PleasureCEO Live! She worked well within the setting, and managed to capture some precious moments that I can now use well in my marketing materials. I myself am a professional portrait photographer so my standards are quite high, and I highly recommend Andrea for your events!

I highly recommend Patrick Power! I needed a professional portrait for a legal job application, and I hadn't had one taken in over 20 years. I wanted it to be professional, but also unique. I wasn't sure how to find a photographer, so I just put out a bid on thumbtack. Patrick responded very quickly and with a very reasonable price. I had resigned myself to just getting a studio portrait with a neutral background, but Patrick had the idea of meeting at City Hall to take the photo. I was very nervous and self-conscious about the process. I don't like having my picture taken and I am not very photogenic. It helped that City Hall was full of other photographers taking pictures of brides, grooms, and other people like me, so I didn't really stand out. I had a problem and ended up being pretty late to our meeting, but Patrick was very nice about it. I was sweating like crazy in my suit, but he did a good job of putting me at ease and letting me rest and cool down for a little bit white while he staked out spots to take the photo. He talked with me casually about what I was looking for in the photo, but we also made small talk about our lives and work, so that soon I felt very comfortable with him. As a result, I looked very natural in the photo. Patrick took a lot of shots, and several of them were quite good. I needed the work done on very short notice, including a print. I made the bid on a Sunday, we did the photo shoot on Monday, and I had the print by Tuesday morning. I love the photo, and my family and friends do too. Everyone agreed that not just my appearance, but also my personality comes through in the photo. I will definitely call Patrick again if I need another photo taken in the future!

Eric produced a very professional looking portrait photograph for me. He took the time to understand what I was looking for and was meticulous in adjusting the lighting and the angle to get the right shot. I appreciated his attention to detail, responsiveness, and prompt delivery. Thanks, Eric!

If you’re reading this to find out more about Oaktown Boudoir... STOP! Just email Chesire and DO IT! I wanted to make a boudoir book for my fiancé as a wedding day gift. I started my search initially through Groupon which then led me to Yelp and finally Oaktown Boudoir. I emailed and Chesire quickly responded. He was extremely helpful in answering all my questions and helping me set up an appointment to meet and plan for the photo shot. Please don’t mistaken his quick response as a pressure to do business but rather his enthusiasm (not once did I feel pressured). He offered exactly what I had envision for the gift (a small fold out accordion book to be given on the wedding day). We quickly clicked and planning was absolutely a breeze. Don’t be fooled by the studio and it’s “small appearance” from the outside. Inside is amazing. The studio has many different rooms and Chesire is able to recreate any backdrop you envision. I looked to his Instagram page to provide samples of what I wanted. During our initial meet we planned out the different pictures I would like to have taken and discusses timing to utilize natural lighting as much as possible. Now for the actual day...I was so nervous. It’s not everyday I’m taking photos in lingerie, let alone in front of strangers. Hair and Make Up was completed by his Artist Thuy. They have been working together and you can tell by the chemistry they have. She worked on my hair and make up and was a complete sweet heart. She was absolutely so sweet. Completed my make up and made me feel simply amazing. To calm my nerves he has an array of beverages and the bubbly. Oh wait did I mention a cheese, crackers and fruit platter?!?!?! Music was playing while we got ready. He ever contacted me before to inquire about my music taste so he could make a personalized playlist for the photo shot. The photo shot was amazing. Thuy stayed and helped with my hair and make up in between photos to ensure I looked amazing. We shot for several hours but only because Chesire wanted to complete and be able to take all the pictures I wanted. If you’re wondering about the extra time and if I had to pay extra...he didn’t charge me. He wanted to make sure he got all the photos and I would be happy (I just made sure I included a tip to make up for some of the time) The pictures came back rather quickly and boy were they amazing!!! He not only captured my natural bubbly self but also captured this seductive-lip-biting-bra off side I didn’t even know I had!!! When it came down to picking out the photos for the book...it was so hard because we had sooo many good photos but Chesire definitely took the time to help me pick out the photos and was extremely patience with all my corrections and edits. We probably made about 10 different drafts before we settled on a final book. If you’re wondering what my fiancé thought of the book...some things are better left as a secret ;)

Ilja was tasked with producing an introduction video for my startup. He broke down the steps involved in producing a video for me. Once I gave him a preliminary script, he structured it in the proper production format, and patiently revised it with me, till we got it to an acceptable length, without losing any important details. He found the most suitable voice-over artist to record the script. The video was put together very professionally after that — he was accommodative in receiving feedback, several times, and diligently worked on incorporating it each time, till an excellent video was produced — I am very happy with the final result!

Usman has done a fantastic job with our wedding photo-shoot in a limited time on a limited budget! We were very comfortable around him and he told us how and where to stand, so we felt at-ease. It was a natural and relaxing process, which we are grateful for. We got great portrait photos and picturesque views of us and majestic City Hall. We don't regret our photographer choice even a second and I would recommend him to everyone!

Tri was exceptionally easy to work with, talented, and generous with his time, both in shooting and in retouching. I was looking for a mix of headshots/portraits: something professional, something fun, something that would display youthful charm and something that would display maturity without being stiff. I got exactly what I was looking for, and Tri even encouraged my dad to join in and took some great father/son shots. I am doing a variety of media appearances and speaking engagements, and I feel like I have enough of a variety to choose a portrait that would work for any different kind of engagement, as well as for my social media accounts. I would highly recommend Tri to anyone looking for an incredible portrait from a photographer that will really take the time to get to know you and deliver photos that capture your personality and essence.

Sumit helped me put together a few professional photos for online use. Our session was about 2 hours. Sumit was very flexible about timing and location and was very generous with his time. Two things really impressed me about Sumit. I was incredibly nervous about my photo shoot and am awfully awkward in front of a camera. Sumit told a few jokes and put me at ease. He also showed me a few photos and reassured me that "we'd definitely gotten a bunch of great shots," which gave me so much more confidence. Secondly, we walked around a great neighborhood that Sumit had scoped out ahead of time. I didn't really pay attention to the backdrops until I saw the photos. I was so impressed -- the backdrops were subtle but completely made the photos come alive (like textured walls or angles that added dimension to the composition). The photographs were excellent and artistic. Couldn't have had a better experience and I totally recommend Sumit!

I had the pleasure to have Ananda taking our engagement and wedding pictures.. She is so pleasant to deal with. She is talented and has a good eye. it rained on my wedding day and we had to move everything indoors and it was a bit hectic like any other wedding. So because the photos were all taken indoors ,they were not as crisp and sharp as I wanted them to be ,so Ananda ,being the nice pleasant person that she is offered to take our portrait pictures later on for no extra charge. She is personal,nice,very understanding,and above all very talented.. and it was a pleasure working with her. I would highly recommend her for any event !

We hired Rich Jarvis to take senior portraits of my son after a couple of failed attempts by the schools choice. This very special time needed to be captured and remembered. He did a phenomenal job! Not only did he choose a great setting but he worked with my son on multiple clothing changes and props. The hardest part will be choosing which ones to display as each and every photos is amazing! He Was personable, professional, and made sure to get exactly what we wanted. From now on he is the only photographer for our family!

Steven has now helped me take portrait photos 3 times, and they've all been amazing! He knows how to bring out best in you - including finding the right angles, lighting, background, and helping you naturally smile / laugh. He send me the pics in a very easy to navigate gallery. The whole experience was seamless and even fun, thanks to Steven!
