"When thinking about maternity photos, my wife was a little nervous being that she didn't want her belly out, or overly staged pics. She wanted natural, fun" and comfortable, and with
é we get nothing but the best. He not only takes suggestion, but gives the best suggestions too. He won't make you do anything you're not comfortable with and he makes the experience fun for all involved. Since then,
é has gone above and beyond and even done pics of our little love’s birthday. Once you know him, he’s like family, and you'll want him to capture all of your special moments.

"
saved our butt as we had hired another photographer prior, only to find out they wanted to up our price after finding out what we wanted" to use our photos for. Also we were told there would be 20-40 hours of work put into the shoot and post production and we were getting the cut rate price of $400 for just THREE photos, and they wanted their watermark on our photos. This was a rate and work effort for a corporation, not our dance team. We needed clean photos, so that wasn't going to work. I called
three days before the scheduled shoot at our studio, and he agreed to come out for $135 an hour with no restrictions
pictures. Sounded wonderful!
and his wife arrived promptly. We had told them the room we were in had both fluorescent lighting and sunlight, so they brought extra lights just in case, but they weren't needed. It was organized chaos, to say the least, but
and
stayed calm throughout, listened to our requests and made suggestions that turned out great. Our dancers like to goof around, and
made sure he captured those moments too, and those were some of the best photos. In a little over an hour and a half,
took upward of 1,500 photos, and we received them all over the next two days via Dropbox and were able to share with friends and the group. The comments we got back from the team and their family and friends was outstanding
quality of the photography. We got the exact photos we needed for our marketing purposes and a bevy of others to distribute and share with the team.
and
even commented how they had a great time shooting our group, and we'll definitely, definitely use them again when the time comes. I'm not sure they ever shot a dance team before, but groups like ours should have no qualms hiring
. Out of 1,500 images, not everything worked or turned out perfect — you always have those photos that you wish one little thing was different or better — but more than enough were PERFECT in both the posed and action categories. We couldn't be happier.

My niece already had chosen a photographer after I had decided on

through emails.
San Rafael Photographers Provider Name Locked
's fees are over half of the other photographers on this website. I am still waiting to hear back from two providers I emailed over 5 days ago. My guess is smaller jobs such as this, are not important to them.

returned my email within hours, and answered all of the questions I had. She has options for you, and is so friendly. I would use her in the future if needed.

Must say the job was well done. He arrived well before the event started, was very courteous and friendly to guest. He completed the job surprisingly fast, as I was greeted the next morning with an email to a Dropbox link.

I am new to the Bay Area and was looking for a wedding photographer. Friends had recommendations, but the photographers' web sites featured impersonal photos and when I contacted a few, their prices were outrageous. I went to Angie's list, saw
San Rafael Photographers Provider Name Locked
's page, and loved the photos.
San Rafael Photographers Provider Name Locked
captured the couples in warm, personal moments, that are timeless. Every person looked like themselves in the moment, which made me feel connected to them, something that I think is hard to capture in wedding photos.
When
San Rafael Photographers Provider Name Locked
called to tell me he was not available, I was not surpised, but he immediately offered his help. He put feelers out in the photo community and within two days found tens of photographers for me to choose from, who were available, in my price range, and who take the kinds of photos that appeal to me. From that list,

also gave recommendations with explanations.

was generous with his time and his opinions when he did not have to be. Although we were not able to work with him this time, I look froward to working with him in the future! Thank you

San Rafael Photographers Provider Name Locked
was very professional, patient with me trying to determine what I was looking for, and worked with all of us for a successful gift. His services allowed the family to enjoy the evening, knowing professional individual and group shots would memoralize the evening. This was a great gift idea to create the photo book. Because we were not sure how many photos they would want in a book - they received all the digital images - we selected a dollar amount that would get a book, or they could use this amount toward a larger purchase.

It went very well. He's an excellent photographer. He is exceptionally professional. He is in the business for many years. He is quick, got the work done. He did it quickly ad efficiently. He did an excellent job. I think the price is comparative to other photographers. I don't find his price exceptionally high or unreasonable. I will definitely use him again.

I contacted
San Rafael Photographers Provider Name Locked
late in the year to take family portraits. I did not know if I would be able to find a photographer to do this work last minute so close to Christmas, but there were so many travel complications I could not reserve a photo shoot earlier. . Part of my family was coming from overseas;and the others were coming from long distance away in USA (2 day trip). All was crazy on timing, weather delays, etc. in the end there were time and location changes.
San Rafael Photographers Provider Name Locked
was understanding, flexible and willing to make changes necessary for a successful shoot. One half of family could not get to atlanta in time for sitting. My family members from overseas were struggling with jet lag and asleep about 1 hour before she arrived.
San Rafael Photographers Provider Name Locked
was very understanding, she was wonderful and showed a lot of patience with a cranky 2 year old jet legged toddler. In the end we were able to get some really nice family photos...A miracle given the circumstances. She was very affirming and professional. I had a hard time picking photos. I loved them all. I would recommend her, especially for families with young children.

I was very anxious because I hate having my photo taken, but I wanted a
professional-quality photo for my LinkedIn profile without spending a lot of time and money to get one.
San Rafael Photographers Provider Name Locked
Silver, the photographer, made it SO easy.
He took 20 photos in 15 minutes.
Later he emailed the photos to me and I selected the one I liked.
The photo was great but there was one piece of hair out of place that
bothered me so
San Rafael Photographers Provider Name Locked
"fixed" it digitally at no extra charge.
He even offered to reshoot if he couldn't fix it.
But he did fix it and it turned out great and I thought the whole process was well worth the money.
I would definitely go back to him.
