I was looking for a professional photographer and found BZM Studio on Yelp. Beata shot my headshots that I needed for both my professional as well as social online sites. She was very comfortable to work with. She first took some trial shots to get rid of my self consciousness and recommended various poses and angles that would fit my professional image and social image. She had requested beforehand that I bring both casual and formal clothes which was very thoughtful of her. BZM Studio owner is a perfectionist and she took time to get the best shots possible. I was able to look at my pictures right away and she made sure that I was happy and satisfied with them before moving on to the next pose. She is worth every penny she charges and more. I would highly recommend Beata if you are looking for a photographer! More...

I love how well my photos came out with BZM studio. I've never taken professional headshots and these came better than I imagined. Beata was creative, understood what look I was going for and really made my session fun! More...

Beata went above and beyond my expectations! I hired her very last minute for my graduation and she was so sweet through the entire process. All of my photos came out beautifully and she made me and everyone else feel so comfortable around her. I can't stop staring at them!! I highly recommend her to anyone who's thinking of hiring, she was worth every penny!! More...

I had an event with my business partners and asked Beata to take photos at our beach retreat and do branding photos for each person. This was the most amazing experience!!! She made it fun and it never felt like work or uncomfortable. She was incredible to work with and the photos reflected everyone's personality perfectly. I will use her at all our future events local and afar. So worth the time and money!!! More...

I needed headshots for my talent manager and she delivered exceptionally! We had a great time at the shoot and she got me exactly what I was asking for. She even edited my select shots to balance out color and fine-tune things. I would recommend her to anyone looking for professional work. She will go the extra mile. She is extremely detailed. Fabulous person to work with all around. More...

Beata is the best! My husband needed professional shots done for our website and quickly. Being it the first time for business pictures, we didn't know where to start and Beata took control and it was a great experience! My husband was feeling a bit out of his element but Beata's professional yet easy going personality allowed for my husband to feel more at ease and have fun with the photo shoot. Beata captures the moments so perfectly. She turned around the final photos promptly. Looking forward to working with BZM Studio in the future for any of our photography needs. More...

I worked with Beata Pevny from BZM STUDIO on many occasions for years while in San Francisco. She was always professional, reliable and easy to work with! Beata is super talented, punctual, very responsive, very patient, and kind. A true profesional. She listens carefully and understands exactly what you need. I always loved her bringing a new vision and perspective to our projects. She definitely delivered the most amazing shots whether it was a portrait, fashion, beauty shot or personal branding photography. I highly recommend her services to everyone! More...

Beata and her willingness to do what she loves doing, capturing moments, little treasures in time, not only caught, but the real character of the subject matter. Beata was able to capture a shy yet strong willed little Lily-Bug, our 11 month old that just wants to get into everything and not sit still and pose for the camera, but she did capture the true Lily and am so grateful for her taking these shots for us! If you’re looking for a professional who is fun to work with, she’s always smiling and captures your moments in time, look no further than Beata and BZM STUDIO Photography!! Thank you Beata!!

We are so grateful to have met Beata and have her photograph our family portraits for us. She was able to capture everything we were looking for and more. She was very helpful and her style guide was a life savior. We had our pups in the photo and she was so great as well as making sure we all looked our very best. From the sneak peak, the photos were picturesque and can't wait until we get the final product. More...

I loved working with BZM Studio. It's not easy getting in front of the camera and feeling like the stranger on the other side of the camera is on your side but she does just that. This was the most comfortable I've felt at a photo shoot and I highly recommend BZM for your professional and personal photographer. I can't wait to work with BZM again in the near future. More...

Beata is a superstar. She makes you feel comfortable trying new things and her skills are professional. She has state of the art equipment and knows how to get good angles. Not to mention, we were laughing half the time because we were having so much fun! She shot my headshots in both studio and natural light. She knows how to pay attention to detail to get the right shot and will touch up your makeup in a flash. She even helped me with my shoes when I was in a tight dress. I cannot say enough good things. Superstar quality! More...

I can't begin to describe how fortunate I am to have BZM Studio's as my number one place to go when taking very special pictures. I just finished another shoot with Beata and her team and once again, my experience was more than I could have expected. When someone can actually make you feel comfortable in a bathing suit... that is talent!! Thank you Beata for always making me feel at ease. Your pictures are beautiful and you really know how to capture the heart of people and places! More...

I worked with Beata as a second shooter for a wedding in Sonoma. From the very beginning she was an absolute delight. She is honest and kind, and has a sense of humor that makes you laugh out loud with your mouth open. She is so knowledgable in her craft and I thoroughly enjoyed working with her. She's also the kind of person I hope to get a drink with and gab about life. Her lively personality allows you to be open and joyfully vulnerable, and for clients, that is such an important quality to have in a photographer. More...

A mutual friend recommended Beata to us. My better half and I met with her for consultation and we clicked instantly. On our wedding day at City Hall, my wife and I were a bit stressed due to a few hiccups, but Beata was able to put us at ease in front of her camera and reminded us to enjoy the moment.

We received absolutely amazing photos! She captured our ceremony, wedding portraits, and small reception at our La Jolla home so beautifully! Beata has an incredible eye for details.

Overall, we had a great experience!

We decided to go with Beata to photograph our wedding not only because of her style, but also because of her personality. Beata is a true professional, friendly, and nice to work with. I feel lucky to find her online among so many other photographers!

We appreciate the fact that she has a Masters in Photography. My husband is a photography geek and was fascinated by her credentials and technical knowledge. We will definitely be using her photography services again.

Beata of BZM Studio is amazing! I was able to hire her for several occasions. So far so good! She is always professional, yet personable. When I contacted her regarding the possibility of being my wedding photographer, we met and she showed me other weddings she had worked on as well as her fashion book. What I loved in her work was the ability to capture intimate moments so well. Once we signed the contract, she met with my husband and I to discuss photo ideas. Not only did we discuss various photo concepts, she also helped us with the timeline for the wedding day! It was a perfect day. Everything went smoothly and we couldn’t wait to see our photos. Within two weeks of our wedding Beata delivered our photos. They were amazing. We received our beautiful wedding album much sooner than expected. We are super happy with the photos and the wedding album. She is now our family photographer for life! More...

We got married last night and I couldn't wait to get on Yelp and sing the praises of all of the our fantastic vendors, especially Beata of BZM Photography. From the moment we got engaged we decided to have a very small wedding and wanted to find a photographer who was able to work with us in terms of our vision and budget.  We found Beata and absolutely loved her from our very first meeting.  She is very kind, so it feels like you're spending time with a long time friend and that was a great bonus for us given the intimacy of our wedding ceremony.  When it came down to the ceremony, family pictures, etc, it couldn't have gone better.  Beata was in control, very calm in sea of high energy and worked the lineups like the absolute pro she is.   I am a person that gets nervous having my picture taken, but with Beata we both felt very much at ease and I think that will show in the pictures.  We got married in Balboa Park and she was able to spot and set up really beautiful shots for us that were then amusingly immediately copied by others having their post wedding pics done. We couldn't be happier with our experience with Beata from the very first phone call to our wedding last night and I absolutely can't wait to see the final pictures because I know they're going to be incredible.

From our initial point of contact we knew that she was the right person to shoot our wedding and I honestly couldn't be happier. Beata captured everything and had so many great idea for poses and shots. She showed us lots of pictures on the camera and they are amazing. We can't wait to see the final pics and are just so happy to have found such an amazing photographer to be with us on such an important day. More...

I had the pleasure and fortune to work with Beata this weekend at the Hilton Garden Inn. She is possibly my favorite photographer to work with and has an amazing personality. The clients and many of the guests actually went out of their way to thank her for doing such a great job! I also noticed she took her time to setup the perfect shot, and double checked her photos before moving on to the next shot which shows a great attention to detail. I 100% recommend Beata for any wedding or event you may have coming up and personally will be recommending all my future clients to book her (if she's available!). Great job! 10/10! More...

We contracted with Beata of BZM Photography for our wedding in January of 2016. Words can not describe the pleasure of working with her. The cooperation, and responsiveness we received were outstanding! Beata is a wonderful person to work with. She is very much in tune with what is wanted and hoped for in a photographer. She listened to our wants and needs, made excellent suggestions, and provided us with a finished product we both loved! The quality of the photos she took was excellent, and we have received many wonderful comments. She has preserved a very special day for us in pictures. There's a lot to worry about in preparing for a wedding, and we didn't worry about the photography because Beata was there to handle all of that. We highly recommend her for your photography needs!!

AMAZING! I found BZM Studio on yelp. Beata answered on the first try and was so sweet and accommodating. It was a spur of the moment thing and I wanted to set up an hour photo shoot the day of. She was able to do it the same day 2-3 hours after my phone call and we were able to pick the perfect place in Del Mar at Powerhouse to do the photoshoot. She took many pictures and made it convenient to pay and get us the pictures the same day. The pictures turned out amazing and she was able to capture so much love and happiness. She was wonderful to work with throughout the entire process and I can't wait to use her again! More...

Beata was very fun to work with! She's all smiles and brings great positive energy to your special day. We planned ahead for lighting and shots I knew that I would want and I love my wedding day photos! She even played with the filters when she edited my pictures to get just the 'boho' feel that I wanted.
Thank you Beata!!

Beata (bzm studio owner and our photographer) was terrific! From the very first email we exchanged she was kind, easy going and very helpful! We had a relatively small intimate wedding in the backyard of my parents' house. Beata photographed all the details of the location making it look quite magical and included things that we didn't even think of! During the ceremony she captured great candid moments not only of my husband and I but also of our sons who were on the site.
Beata is very professional, patient and personable. I am a little camera shy and my husband doesn't like his pictures taken but somehow we look like professional models haha. Now that's a TALENT!

I just received our family photos from our session with Beata and couldn't be happier. Not only was Beata able to get incredible shots on the beach with perfect sunset lighting, she was also able to get my 3 month old daughter to look at the camera and smile!Aside from quality pictures, Beata was a delight to work with. She was incredibly prompt (we had proofs to look at in less than 24 hrs after the photo shoot!), and she even touched up a picture for us ahead of time so we could send out holiday cards. I highly recommend her! More...

I found Beata on Yelp and feel so lucky to have found her so I wanted to write a post so others might benefit from her talent too.  Shortly before a family trip to San Diego, we decided we'd like to get family photos taken while at the beach.  Beata was so quick to respond to my inquiry and willing to fit us into her schedule during Thanksgiving week though we knew a last minute request might be a long shot.  Our photo shoot was so much fun and Beata is so easy to work with.  The time flew by and though we hadn't met her before the shoot, Beata quickly got a sense for our family and was able to capture the essence of our family beautifully.  I have four children so getting a good family photo with 6 people is no easy task and once we got our proofs (that night) there were so many wonderful family, sibling and individual pictures to choose from we were just thrilled.  Beata is extremely talented, very responsive, and easy to work with, I would highly recommend her.

Working with Beata was such a joy. She was incredibly patient and kind and worked her butt off to produce the final product exactly as I envisioned it. I was looking for someone to take some head shots as part of a memorial project for my mother who passed away. Her prices were very affordable. Additionally, she is very skilled in photoshop and worked her magic to change the background, change the lighting, change the tone....she's great! She is extremely flexible, offering wedding and baby packages as well. She also has great attention to detail, picking out little things to really enhance the photo.If you are looking for someone who truly cares about her customers, give Beata a shout. I drove 45 minutes for her services. She is extremely passionate about what she does. The next time I am in need of professional photography , I will be calling her again. She is highly recommended for her outstanding work. More...

Beata really helped make my wedding experience wonderful! I got married in May 2012 and she was the photographer at the ceremony and at the reception party.
My husband and I have researched and interacted with a number of different photography companies. Each company had pros and cons and offered various perks. When it came down to making the decision for which company to choose, the choice was easy. Beata was easy to converse with and availability was not an issue. Her company offers a number of services for different needs. And she walked us through every part of our wedding, helping us any way possible.
She took a lot of candid shots and then after the ceremony a few posed ones with me and my husband. She has a great eye and she was so easy to work with. If you check out her website bzmstudio.com you will know what I mean. Her photos are absolutely amazing and almost non-comparable to other photographers. She doesn't take mundane shots; all the photos she had taken for us had life and were very vibrant.
Finally, we worked together on a budget that fit what I was comfortable with and I could not be happier. I would recommend Beata to any bride!! Thanks Beata for capturing some incredible moments of our life!!!

Beata, BZM Studio, is a great wedding photographer! She photographed both my engagement and my wedding in 2008 and was amazing! The engagement photos were done in San Francisco, where we lived, and our wedding was up at Lake Tahoe. Having her take both the engagement and wedding photos gave us the chance to get to know her and get an idea of her style. I really enjoyed getting this chance before our wedding.

She was such a pleasure to work with, both my husband and I felt extremely at ease and confident that the pictures would be great. Our wedding photos are nothing short of stunning. Looking at the photographs is like getting to relive my wedding. Beata is an amazing photographer, and fit in just like one of the guests, which made everyone feel at ease. She was someone we could count on to get the shots that we wanted, the funny moments, the tears and everything in between. She really captured the feeling of the wedding and memories for us to look on years later.

I am so glad that we had Beata Pevny as our photographer and would use her all over again!

I hired Beata to photograph my wedding in October after seeing her work in fashion photography. She was amazing to work with - organized and prepared while creating a comfortable and fun atmosphere. My husband and I were ambitious in our decision to take pictures in multiple locations across San Francisco before our wedding, along with photos during the ceremony and at the reception. She helped us to structure our time so that we could make it to all the landmarks we wanted to capture with time to spare! The results were gorgeous photographs that my husband and I will cherish for the rest of our lives. If you hire Beata you will not be disappointed. More...

Beata was a wonderful part of my wedding. She was creative and detail oriented, even helping me draft a timeline for specific shots I wanted throughout the day. She was very flexible and found the best locations for photos before, during, and after the event. Beata has a natural eye, and captured poignant, beautiful moments throughout the ceremony as well as the reception. She also got along great with all the other guests and had fun! Beata's charming and professional attitude puts everyone at ease. She really takes incredible photos, too. Ours were up and edited in no time, and the entire collection was beautiful beyond our expectations. I know that for future life events (babies, etc), Beata will always be my first choice in photographers. More...

We love Beata!! She photographed our wedding which was held at Tilden Park, Berkeley, in 2008. She took pics of our family prior to wedding at the Rose Garden. The pictures were amazing. She did such a great job. She paid a lot of attention to the details of our wedding and made sure to capture it in the pictures. She was very professional and great to work with before, during and after the wedding. She really captured the spirit of our wedding. Everyone who sees our pics comments on how beautiful they are. Beata is a great photographer and you will not be disappointed if you hire her for your wedding. More...

Just recently we celebrated our tenth wedding anniversary. It was a great opportunity to again enjoy our wedding album. Thanks to Beata, our memories of that beautiful day are still alive. Beata is a great photographer. She photographed our wedding and also organized a wonderful photo shoot session the following week (which was our wish). Her professionalism, creativeness and attention to detail has made it possible for us to cherish the memories of our most important day in life year after year. Thanks again Beata! More...

First off, I would like to say that I never write reviews for anything, ever, but I had to for Beata. I was completely and utterly shocked by how good of a job she did and how she went above and beyond for us. My fiance and I are overjoyed with our engagement pictures, and I feel SO lucky to have found her to take them. If you're thinking about contacting her, do it. Really.

I first emailed Beata on May 10 about an engagement session and wedding photos. She emailed us back promptly even though she was in the middle of an emergency evacuation due to the fires and answered all of our questions professionally.

We met Beata for coffee, and we knew pretty much immediately that we wanted to have her for the wedding and engagement session. She is so easygoing and generally just a joy to be around.

I was very pleased with the preview of the pictures that she sent us, and we were so ecstatic with the pictures after we got them. She edited them quickly AND they looked perfect.

Oh, and in one of her emails to us, she included a link to a "surprise." She SURPRISED US by SENDING US A VIDEO OF OUR ENGAGEMENT SESSION. Who does that?! You could read through every review of every photographer in San Diego (which I pretty much did while doing wedding research) and not find that. It was amazing. I got to send it to everyone, and they were overjoyed too.

I am so thankful and I feel so fortunate to have picked Beata. A surprise AND stunningly beautiful pictures. It doesn't get better than that. And personally, I think the photos are one of the most important parts of the wedding. You can't re-do them or fix them at the last minute, and they're the best way to remember the wedding. So, it was really important to me to pick someone that I could trust to do a great job, and Beata is PERFECT. She is amazingly talented and very personable and hardworking, so if you get the chance to work with her, take it.

First off, I would like to say that I never write reviews for anything, ever, but I had to for Beata. I was completely and utterly shocked by how good of a job she did and how she went above and beyond for us. (If you read nothing else, read the third to last paragraph.) My fiance and I are overjoyed with our engagement pictures, and I feel SO lucky to have found her to take them. I can't say enough good things about her, and if you're thinking about contacting her, do it. Really.So, on to the review...I first emailed Beata on May 10 (about 13 months before our planned wedding date) about an engagement session and wedding photos. She emailed us back promptly (even though she was in the middle of an emergency evacuation due to the fires) and answered all of our questions professionally. I wanted someone who was talented and experienced, and my fiancé was most interested in getting someone who was easygoing and amiable. He's been to way more weddings than I have, and he says he's seen photographers yelling at or otherwise being rude to the guests. Definitely not what we wanted. But anyway, we met Beata for coffee, and we knew pretty much immediately that we wanted to have her for the wedding and engagement session. She is so easygoing and generally just a joy to be around. So we made an appointment for the engagement photos for the next week at Torrey Pines and the Meditation Gardens.The next week rolled around, and she showed up early with Tomasz, her assistant and (unbeknownst to us at the time) a professional videographer. (I'm sure you can figure out why he was there with that last bit of info, but we didn't think anything of it.) We trekked around TP and the meditation gardens. It's actually surprisingly tiring getting your picture taken! Another bonus of Beata being personable is that she's easy to work with. She made it really fun!Anyway, I was very pleased with the preview of the pictures that she sent us (again, very promptly), and we were so ecstatic with the pictures after we got them. She edited them quickly, AND they looked perfect.Oh, and in one of her emails to us, she included a link to a "surprise." I saw it was to a video website and thought, "No. There is no way she could possibly be this awesome of a photographer." But she is, you guys. She SURPRISED US by ***SENDING US A VIDEO OF OUR ENGAGEMENT SESSION***. Who does that?! You could read through every review of every photographer in San Diego (which I pretty much did while doing wedding research) and not find that. I've never even HEARD of that happening to anyone. It was amazing. We are so over the moon. I got to send it to everyone, and they were overjoyed too. My sister CRIED after watching this video. That's how good it was. Amazing. I am so thankful and I feel so fortunate to have picked Beata. A surprise AND stunningly beautiful pictures. It doesn't get better than that. And personally, I think the photos are one of the most important parts of the wedding. Once they're done, they're done. You can't re-do them or fix them at the last minute, and they're the best way to remember the wedding. So, it was really important to me to pick someone that I could trust to do a great job, and Beata is PERFECT. She is amazingly talented and very personable and hardworking, so if you get the chance to work with her, take it. More...

Beata really helped make my wedding experience wonderful!  I got married two months ago and she was the photographer at the ceremony and at the reception party.  My husband and I have researched and interacted with a number of different photography companies.  Each company had pros and cons and offered various perks. When it came down to making the decision for which company to choose, the choice was easy. Beata was easy to converse with and availability was not an issue. Her company offers a number of services for different needs. And she walked us through every part of our wedding, helping us any way possible.She took a lot of candid shots and then after the ceremony a few posed ones with me and my husband.  She has a great eye and she was so easy to work with.  If you check out her website bzmstudio.com  you will know what I mean. Her photos are absolutely amazing and almost non-comparable to other photographers. She doesn't take mundane shots; all the photos she had taken for us had life and were very vibrant.Finally, we worked together on a budget that fit what I was comfortable with and I could not be happier. I would recommend Beata to any bride!! Thanks Beata for capturing some incredible moments of our life!!! More...

Beata is one of the top photographers in the San Francisco.  We were so fortunate to have her as our photographer for our last two conferences!  One conference was held in Redwood City and the other in San Francisco.  Beata really listened to what kind of photos that we are interested in having taken.  We were impressed with the quality and level of skill that she displayed.  We typically have about 600 attendees and Beata reminded calm and focused through out the events.  Our attendees continue to compliment the pictures, which we use consistently on our website and promotional material.Beata is professional, creative, and wonderful to work with.  She is very passionate and dedicated to her profession.   I recommend her wholeheartedly for any event that needs an exceptional photographer!

Beata is not only very professional, pleasant to work with, and charges very reasonable rates, but her pictures are incredible.  I had to hold back tears from looking at the shots of our toddler and family that were artistic, timeless, and beautiful.  She captured the essence of our son and literally chased after him for 90 minutes to snap photos on a nearly impossible-to-tie-down two year-old.  Not only did I immediately like working with Beata's warm personality, but half-way through the session, our toddler was asking to sit on her lap and play with her.  She turned our photos around in mere days, and went above and beyond what I asked her to do.  Highly recommend Beata and will definately be using her again.

My experience working with Beata was a pleasant one. She took photos for the employees at the company I work for and the photos turned out very nice. Her direction in telling us what to do, where to stand, and how to place our position (sitting or standing) was warm and kind. This was my first time taking part in a photo shoot for an employer. I was happy with the service Beata did for us. Her customer service skills were welcoming and she seems very passionate with her work as a professional photographer. I recommend Beata Pevny Photography to others for the service I received made me happy. Beata is willing to meet the client where ever they are at in their project/event. It is a "two-way" relationship where the client meets Beata half-way, so the ending result can be a memorable one for both parties. More...

On a budget  Need a cordial, flexible, and responsive professional photographer? Look no further. Beata was hired by San Francisco State University's Institute for Civic and Community Engagement (ICCE) to photograph our Annual Community Service Learning Awards Ceremony. She produced high-quality work, snapped a variety of fun shots and captured the mood of our event and the personalities of our guests. We received the entire collection of photos(400+) from  our university event  very quickly (less than a week). The hard part will be deciding which ones to use. We recommend her without hesitation.

Beata was very flexible, meeting with my fiance and me on our schedule. She was a consummate professional, quickly directing us into two possible locations for our shoot, as well as tweaking our appearance slightly to make the picture perfect. She's got a warm personality and made us feel very relaxed and taken care of. She sent us the results the same day that she took the photos and we loved the final product. We highly recommend her if you would like any portraits done. More...

I have used Beata Pevny's photography services on six occasions, for both personal and business bookings. She is great. Beata is prompt, detail oriented, and professional. As a real estate broker, I have used Beata to shoot still shots of the interior and exterior of homes. This sounds like easy work, but I've used mainy photographers over the years, and it takes a talented shooter, with high quality equipment to make these shots look good.Beata does just that.     In addition, I have used Beata to shoot some private parties I've thrown over the years. It can be hard to shoot guests at a party without making them feel self-conscious or shy. Her ability to capture dynamic live subjects as well as objects of the static realm (e.g. homes/landscapes) speaks to her talents. I would recommend Beata to friends and business colleagues, alike.
