About

Roi is great to work with. I was looking for someone who takes good pictures but not your average photographer who takes the same kind of photos over and over; I wanted him to capture the real me. Since I haven't had portrait photos taken in a long time, I was relying on him for photo locations and poses. He really made me feel at ease and guided me throughout the process. He's both funny and professional. He had an assistant accompany him (I forgot her name) who was really nice. They both made me laugh and I felt very comfortable for the photos. I was on a budget and his prices are very affordable. When I first emailed him, he responded to my questions right away. He didn't charge extra for traveling. Overall, that was the best combination for me: professionalism, awesome photos and within my budget. If you're looking for an amazing photographer, you should totally contact him. He's the best!

About

Ashleigh is a true professional. In the two hours we had her, she captured all the requested shots plus many impromptu special moments. Her personality and kindness is what separates her from other photographers I have worked with in the past. Many friends and family members commented on her cheerfulness and smile. Her photos are as beautiful as she is. We all enjoyed having her here on our special day. I would hire Ashleigh again for any corporate or private function that I have in the future.

About

We have never had better school pictures than when Sharie has taken them. In fact, many people who have visited our house and seen Esmé's and Elsa's preschool pictures have commented on this: "That doesn't look like my school pictures!" That's because Sharie not only manages to catch their natural expressions and joy, but light and set them up so beautifully. The kids are relaxed, happy, and well lit! They are their true selves. We were also surprised that the school picture process involved getting to meet Sharie at the school to view the photos. It was such a pleasure to meet her and to be able to select the photo we liked best. In fact, choosing between all the photos was the hardest part! She captured our kids so beautifully. I wish she could be the photographer for our elementary school! We also hired Sharie to photograph our family and had the same amazingly results and experience. Now we have gorgeous family portraits too! Thank you, Sharie!

About

I really wanted to to maternity shots for my 3rd pregnancy, since I had never done them before. I found Rio and she did such an amazing job! I felt like she took her time and made sure I had SO many awesome pictures. She is such a cool person and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photographer! When we wanted to do family portraits, we knew who to go to. Rio captured my 3 children's personalities, my husband and me, and the family all together. I will forever treasure these pictures!

About

I am an international wedding, portrait and fashion photographer, and I would love to get to know you and capture your most memorable day. I also do family, maternity, baby and lifestyle portraits. Something that makes me unique from other photographers is that I use off-camera flash, learned by the award-winning master photographer, Scott Robert Lim. Using off-camera flash creates shadows in my portraits, allowing my clients to look slimmer and more beautiful. If you're interested and would like to hear more, please visit my website, or e-mail me.

About

I specialize in street photography. I do primarily black and white. My photographs might be good for your business or as an example of street life in San Francisco. I have photographs of all kinds of people, but I particularly like street photos of children i.e. boys. My son who is 12 has been my muse and got me interested in the natural physicality and energy of boys his age. Their lack of self consciousness and sense that the world is theirs for the taking is quite lovely to see. At play they seem to be just enjoying their budding strength and practicing to become men.
