Did a wonderful job! Scoped out the venue before hand to find the best places for photos, got good action shots, and the photos look great! Good value. Very prompt in response time and easy to work with.

Saul was absolutely fantastic! We hired sjsFoto to capture a volunteer leadership development day that included a diverse crowd. We also had several side tasks for Saul, including quickly capturing headshots of volunteers during meal breaks. He had to run back and forth between rooms to capture sessions in various parts of the conference center. He didn't miss a beat! In addition, the main conference room where our group sessions happened was so poorly lit, and we were worried if photos would come out. They were magnificent! He arrived early, interacted with guests in a professional manner, and made sure we got all of the photos we needed before he left. We were extremely pleased with Saul and cannot recommend him highly enough!

Words can’t express how impressed my husband and I are with Saul’s photography. The images he took of us on our wedding day are spectacular and totally out of this world. He made us feel so comfortable and at ease on our wedding day. He captured every emotion we felt on our special day in our wedding photos. Our friends and families were also impressed and blown away with Saul’s work. It was a joy and pleasure working with you. Gus and I look forward working with u many times more in the future. And we really wish we could give you more than the 5 stars rating review, cause you deserve it. Thank you again!

Saul is a nice guy and selected a nice park I didn't know about in the city. I got the pictures as soon as I paid him and good quality. The only challenges I've had with photos is the size is not working for a site that I really want but I've reached out to him for some help and confident he will

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing is fair and all inclusive of scouting time, shooting time, drive time, and post production editing time. I bring the equipment, lighting, and attitude to get the best images.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    A good conversation is always best. I like to find out exactly what the client is looking for, creatively and logistically, so I can exceed all of the customer's needs.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have 20 years of experience as a professional photographer in all areas of the business. I began my career as an award-winning photojournalist before working in the government sector as a photographer and then the corporate sector as a director of photography and video.
