“Wow Simone!! You have totally blown me away!! These are all I imagined they would be and more! I can’t begin to tell you how awesome these are. You truly capture the moment and it didn’t feel fake or coerced in any way. Thank you for making us feel totally comfortable — I will cherish these for a long time.”
“Oh my god, that was so fast! And all the photos are gorgeous!! Thank you so much. We’ve been going through our favorites.”
“Simone! Thank you so much for being the photographer at our wedding! The photos are all absolutely gorgeous. Seriously, I have so many favorites I can’t even narrow it down. Thank you so much for perfectly capturing our special day so we can share it with all our friends and family. <3 I will definitely be recommending you to everybody I know :) :) :)”
“As a 2013 bride I did one thing that countless people told me not to do: I hired my friend as my photographer. I can honestly say that if I could go back I wouldn’t do it any other way. Simone is an amazing person and you should book her on her personality alone. Simone is classic, creative, spunky and her work is precious, well thought out and gorgeous. As a photographer myself, I felt completely relaxed and confident on our wedding day knowing that Simone was running around despite the 100+ degree weather and doing her absolutely best to capture our day. This alleviated so much of my wedding day nerves.
I have shot countless weddings with Simone and she never ceases to impress me with the lengths she will go to for her brides. She’s just in love with the time she spends alone with a couple on their wedding day and you can tell in her work that she loves what she does and her clients love her.
Oh and she got my husband to enjoy his time in front of the camera. I rest my case.”
“Simone shot our wedding in the UC Berkeley Botanical Gardens and the reception afterwards, and I couldn’t have asked for a better photographer. Not only did the photos come out wonderfully, she was also extremely helpful throughout the day. Your wedding is a wonderful experience but it can also be full of stress, and Simone’s warmth and enthusiasm cuts through that like a knife through butter.”
“My fiancé and I just shot our engagement photos with Simone. Could not be more pleased with the combination of professionalism and congeniality, and sample pictures were up a few hours later. Would definitely recommend with no regrets!”
“My fiancé and I recently hired Simone to shoot our engagement photos, and we could not be happier with the photos!
Simone was fantastic–not only was extremely accommodating, but she helped us pick our shoot locations! She was early to the shoot, so much fun to work with, and definitely knew what she was doing! Simone really optimized the time that was given, and knew just how to use light to take gorgeous photos. And we got our photos the NEXT day! They turned out beautifully, and since then she has been so helpful and has stayed in touch with us to make sure we are happy with everything. Simone was great, I highly recommend her!”
“We hired Simone to do our wedding at the Oakland Zoo on June 16th. She was our only photographer besides our guests and she was amazing. She wasn’t afraid to take control of the crowd and family. She was great with all the guests. She has an artful eye and sees things in a way that you normally wouldn’t think would be visually appealing,until you see her version of it through her eyes. We had record breaking triple digit heat that day and she didn’t complain once. One thing for sure, you get your money worth, and then some. She always went above and beyond. Simone is not only an amazing photographer but an amazing person. When I need baby shots I know who to call. We love you Simone! Mr. & Mrs. Fink”
“Having Simone do our wedding pictures was one of the best decisions we made! She is so personable and was a joy to be around — and we were also impressed by her efficiency and ability to pose us to create perfect, natural-looking shots. She has an ability to put people at ease, which makes for great pics. Highly recommended!”
“Simone Anne photographed our wedding at the Brazilian Room in May 2012 and did an absolutely amazing job! I highly recommend her. She has a great personality and makes you feel so comfortable. I’m not very good at posing for pictures, but Simone was was so good at directing us and knows exactly how to take good wedding shots that look natural and not over-posed. She has a very artistic eye too and and it’s very apparent in her photos that she has a natural talent for this. Her candid shots are also all amazing. She captured so many precious moments, and I didn’t even notice that she was there taking a photo! Overall, I really recommend her services.She is very affordable (at least at the moment, but she’s so good she could charge more!), very reliable and really goes above and beyond for her clients. I don’t write a lot of reviews, but I really felt that this warranted one. Do yourself a favor and hire her!”
“Amazing photographer! Simone did our anniversary pics and we LOVE them! Wish I would have known about her for our wedding. Such a down to earth, kind, and thoughtful person with an awesome artistic eye for great photos. You will be totally satisfied to have her be your photographer for any event!”
