7/30/2011 - Wendy N. - Milpitas, CAThank you for our beautiful Maternity pictures Christophe! I found Christophe through yelp and I am so glad I did. He did a wonderful job with our maternity photo shoot and the pictures are absolutely beautiful and artistic. Christophe is a great photographer and his prices are very reasonable. He even let us bring our dog to the photo shoot and we were able to get some great shots with us and with his daughter who happened to be watching that day which I absolutely loved!
The prints and CD were very professional and I cannot wait to share them with my family.
My daughter will be born in the next few weeks and we will be taking her back to Creative Shot Photography to get her newborn pics with Christophe.7/28/2011 - Julie W. - Palo Alto, CAIt's a pleasure to work with CreativeShot. Christophe is a talented photographer and a nice person. Above all, he really offers great service for a great price. I was very happy with the way my head shots turned out, and it was so easy to get them done. Christophe is responsive and really aims to please.6/15/2011 - Polynesia Z. - Foster City, CAWow! Christophe took our tea party engagement photos. He was on time, very comfortable to work with, and did a phenomenal job I couldn't be more happier with my photos! Very affordable too :).10 stars if I could!5/29/2011 - Emily L. - Mountain View, CAChristophe has done multiple photography sessions for us, each time very professional. We used him for our maternity and new born photographs and then again for my husbands professional headshots. He is helpful during the shoot and once completed he gets your photos out to you quickly and efficiently. We really enjoy working with him!5/15/2011 - Kevin S. - San Jose, CAChristophe (the owner) was great to work with in so many ways. Not only did our photos turn out well but he was extremely easy and flexible to work with in terms of scheduling and actual day-of shooting. He was also great with the kids (2yr old & 6mo old), he kept their attention and knew when to snap the photo at the exact right time. I would definitely go back to Christophe when we need portraits or group/family photos updated! His photo packages were priced very reasonably so all in all a really great value and experience!4/27/2011 - Michael J. - Berkeley, CASearching for a good "author headshot" to accompany my new book, I spent a month trawling the internet, corresponding with photographers who routinely wanted to charge me $200-500+ (!) for a single photo, who had inflexible schedules, who were difficult to get to, who wanted me to sign restrictive licensing contracts, or who just seemed very strange and difficult. I have a lot on my plate, and this was turning out to be much more complicated than expected. It's just a photo! (But having a friend take your headshot ... doesn't work. Trust me.)
So Christophe's ad seemed a little too good to be true. But it is true.
Christophe is a super nice and completely normal guy. His overhead is low, and so is his price. His studio is easy to get to. You can park out front. He is easy to work with, had great suggestions and explanations, and quickly and easily made my digital touch up requests. Basically, low cost of entry, and no headache whatsoever.
And most importantly, I'm delighted with the final outcome. I hope you are too.10/24/2010 - Ori S. - San Jose, CAChristophe did a great job on headshots I needed for work.
He was professional, made the whole experience very relaxing, the results were great and the turn around fast.
what more can you ask for?7/29/2010 - Caitlin D. - Sunnyvale, CAOf the five family portraits we've done over the years our session at Creative Shot Photography has been the least painful with the best results. Christophe often took ten or fifteen test pictures before he even began in earnest on a shot, adjusting the light and moving people slightly to make sure the grouping was right while his wife Li spot checked for rumpled shirts and awkward looking hands. Their attention to detail really showed in the final pictures. Almost all were really excellent, and we had a hard time picking out which ones we wanted to print. Add to that the affordability of his packages and the relaxed atmosphere in his studio and I am sold. We'll be back for our next family portrait for sure. :-)7/27/2010 - A T. - Mountain View, CAWe had our engagement photos taken by Christophe and his lovely wife, Li! They make a great team combining the environment with the people to make beautiful compositions!
We had such a great time during the shoot. He was able to get us in the right mood and feel relaxed, even though it was our first photo shoot and we were nervous.
He is very professional and a natural at capturing the special moments! And he was able to make my fake eyelashes look super natural :) We highly recommend him for any occasion.7/25/2010 - Kristyna S. - San Carlos, CA
"My husband and I used creative shot for both our maternity photos and our baby's newborn photos and we loved the outcome. Christophe and his wife are very easy to work with- both friendly and professional. The fees are great and the photos were exactly what we wanted. Christophe is very open to hearing the type of photos and poses that you want and he always prints out and recommends different poses for you. He is very flexible with the timing of the sessions and works with you to find a time that is best for you. Also, the turn around time is quick. If you get back to him with a list of photos that you like and want, they are done in a few days. We will continue to use Christophe in the future. We feel lucky to have found him. We highly recommend him!!!"7/23/2010 - Iolanda D. - Palo Alto, CA"Today, I had my first headshot photo shoot with CreativeShot and I was pleased beyond words!
Christophe is professional, patient and extremley courteous. The turnaround time on the preview of the pictures was the same day with pickup on prints the next day. I was extremly impressed!
This is also my first post on Yelp! and was completely motivated to write this entry based on my very positive experience today! Thank you, thank you again!"7/12/2010 - S. B. - Palo Alto, CAI'm an attorney and I needed a headshot for my website and for some sponsored listings on attorney search sites. I contacted several local photographers for quotes, and Christophe was one of the lowest, yet offered the most for it. Some of the more expensive photographers gave me a low price option that involved something like 5 minutes of studio time and a single photo, while Christophe's reasonable price included an hour of studio time and 10 final, edited photos (which I could choose out of 60 or so proofs).
Christophe was professional, took great photos, and has reasonable prices. I'm thinking about going back to get some family portraits done as well!"1/17/2010 - Rebecca D. - San Leandro, CA"Our family had a WONDERFUL photo shoot with Christophe over the holidays! We are very glad we went to Christophe instead of a stuffy, overpriced option like Sears. He did a great job at a great price! He is very professional and delivered a fantastic set of photos to us. Christophe was able to handle 4 adults, a 12 year old and a 5 year old and make us all comfortable and look great. We would definitely use him again!
"11/23/2009 - Ingrid B - Mountain View, CA"Christophe recently took pictures of my two sons (1 year and 2.5 years), my husband and me. WOW! He did an excellent job. The whole experience was great: He was professional and did a fabulous job of getting my two young boys to pose and smile for the camera which was no small feat. The quality of the pictures themselves is very high- the background is bright, and we just stand out. (I had some pictures done at a mall a few months back, and there is NO comparison!)
I would recommend Christophe to anyone wanting some great family pictures!!" 11/10/2009 - Alina G. - Sunnyvale, CA
"Christophe did a beautiful job in his studio when he took pictures of my husband, my two kids, and I. The portraits are gorgeous. We will be making them into large canvases to hang on the walls around the house. I posted my pictures on facebook and got a tone of complements. I highly recommend Christophe: he has a great eye, really talented, and makes this whole picture taking experience a lot of fun for adults and kids."
