I am super late in writing this review BUT my experience and photos with Eddie in San Francisco was 5 Stars! Eddie made me feel comfortable, had a wonderful vision for the shoot and I couldn't compliment his talent more. Thank you so much!

Eddie is a consummate professional who is a pleasure to work with and delivers great photographs. We needed head shots for our new website, but we wanted unconventional ones shot at a beach with the executive in a wet suit. Beyond that we didn't have a specific creative vision. Eddie turned up for a very early morning shoot with a great professional attitude and valuable creative direction. Best of all his images were fantastic. And his fees were extremely competitive. I am in the public relations industry and I have worked with a lot of photographers and I would say Eddie is one of the best in the business. More...

Eddie put me at ease during the photo session and captured the natural feel that I wanted in the photos. He is creative, conscientious, technically savvy, flexible with scheduling, professional, and communicates/listens well.

Eddie has a great system worked out for getting a set of dating profile photos that look good without being over-produced and unnatural.  He is also a source of good tips.  I am happy with the photos and received compliments on them.  They certainly increase match rate on apps as intended. More...

I had a lovely experience working with Eddie. I hired him for an on-site (streetscape) headshot for business purposes, and since I hate being in front of a camera, I was nervous about the experience. I met Eddie downtown and felt immediately comfortable with him and with the experience. He gave me tips to help me look my best on camera, and I think they helped. The whole experience felt surprisingly natural.Eddie involved me during the photoshoot by reviewing photos with me, and he was both willing to experiment with some of my ideas and experienced enough to direct me to something that would be a success. I shared the final photo I selected with a friend, and she said it captured my personality, too. I recommend Eddie and would hire again. More...

Eddie took my headshot for my LinkedIn profile and I am thoroughly pleased. He was great at answering all my questions regarding wardrobe recommendations, background inquiries and poses. He really knows the city inside out. The process is pretty seedless as he coaches you on angles and poses and shows you samples along the way so you can see what the photos look like. His relaxed attitude put me at ease right away.If you are not photogenic or not experienced taking photos, this is your guy. His photos are organic and bubbly not stiff, overly photoshopped nor edited to make you look fake. He aims to capture you in a flattering manner and make people look comfortable in their own skin. I wish I would have found out about him years ago. Definitely reach out with any questions or for a consultation. Thanks Eddie! Will recommend you to all my friends and colleagues. More...

Eddie's a really pro!  Although he does very thorough work in presenting someone like myself in an online dating context as far as photography is concerned, he does understand the need for good head shots and was able to work with me in the Downtown San Francisco Financial District as far as this.  I needed to set up my business and so while the photos were primarily online dating-oriented, they were still business professional enough to merit being used for my eventual website.I will use Eddie again at some point down the road.  He knows his stuff, is very patient, understanding and straight forward.  In case it matters, he's also a Bay Area native and knows the scene well.

Eddie was really fun to work with! I needed a new professional headshot for my LinkedIn profile, and he absolutely nailed it. We shot at a few locations in San Francisco and I really liked the colors that Eddie scouted out, as well as his attention to good lighting. He helped me with my posture and outfits and selected the most flattering photos from our photo shoot for me. While he has great camera equipment, he truly has an eye for the best photo. Thank you, Eddie! More...

I chose Eddie to get a set of photos towards online dating. Overall, I am satisfied with the photos and the experience but not impressed. Eddie was professional in his arrangements and communicative about what was required, outfits and place to meet. My main points of contentions if any were that the cost of the service is rather high and was geared more towards folks new to online dating with tips and recommendations, rather than just focused on good photos alone.PS: Be prepared to walk a lot More...

I contacted Eddie to take some headshot photos and update my LinkedIn profile. My experience working with him was wonderful from start to finish. Before the photoshoot, Eddie was very detailed with his rates, guidelines and what to expect when working with him. The day of the shoot, we met in the Financial District to start taking photos. During the shoot we engaged in casual conversation to ease into the process and get more candid shots. The whole shoot was done outdoors in order to get the most flattering natural light. Eddie was a pleasure to work with the whole way through. His laid back demeanor makes it easy to get relaxed around him. While taking photos he will give advice on how to get better shots such as standing in a better positions and tips on better facial expressions. He is very accommodating of your needs and personal tastes and quickly adapts to it. After receiving the photos, all of his advice came in handy as I could see significant improvements from the shots I took at the beginning to those taken towards the end. I got several good shots that it was tough for me to choose just one photo for my LinkedIn. I will definitely be using his service again when I'm in need of professional photos. More...

I've worked with Eddie twice so far and have always been impressed by his professionalism, his ability to make you feel comfortable, and eye for different angles. He's very easy to chat with - shooting with him is like shooting with a friend. I've always been pleased with his photos and his willingness to try different things. I've shot headshots with him, but also more athletic shoots as well. He has a good sense of lighting and above all, provides a fast turnaround on your photos. Very much appreciated! He's also punctual, communicative, and very easy to work with. I highly recommend Eddie! More...

I had the pleasure of working with Eddie on two separate occasions, shooting images for my @KALEJUNKIE Instagram and blog. He is punctual, kind, and most important, INCREDIBLY TALENTED. He is detail oriented and takes great pride in the quality of the photos he takes. He also makes it really easy for me to by my goofy self and feel comfortable doing handstands and other lifestyle shots that I've asked him to shoot! I hope to work with Eddie again and again. Highly recommend. More...

I contacted Eddie for a set of photos a week ago, I instantly liked his dedication, through emails, trying to understand my personality to picture the best shots for our session. But the best part was the session itself, not only he picked awesome locations downtown SF, but his way to take pictures is quiet unique. I was a bit stressed about it as I don't really like being in the model role, but the only thing I did was just chatting while enjoying a coffee or a beer. And, without breaking the eye contact, Eddie would just take pictures when I wouldn't expect it. Definitely a great experience! if I need more pictures I know who to call now. More...

I was in a crunch to get some head shots done and Eddie came to the rescue! I contacted him on a Saturday morning and we were able to shoot the next day. He was super professional and communicative and even provided some input on best colors to wear for the shoot. We shot at different locations in about 45 min and I received my head shots that evening. I was really pleased with the shots - they look so much more interesting than studio shots. Eddie also had great insight on different locations to shoot at. Places I didn't even know existed in SF. Highly recommend Eddie if you're looking to upgrade your professional head shots! More...

I booked Eddie for a two hours session in February 2018.  I wanted to get few nice pictures to give to my husband as a gift.  Eddie is a brilliant photographer.  He is very professional and extremely talented.   He took his time to make sure that the final product is perfect.   I'll for sure call him again in the future and recommend him for portraits, personal or business purposes.   I'm glad I found an amazing photographer in San Francisco and that my husband is thrilled with his gift.

As a non-profit, we had never had a photographer on site for our events, and we decided it was time to document and showcase our work - and we were so glad that we found Eddie.  He is extremely skilled at getting in there to get great candid shots without interrupting the flow of what is happening.  He has this lovely quiet presence, yet is not shy about jumping in and finding creative perspectives.The communication with Eddie was exactly what I hoped for:  quick response time, answered all my questions, checked in on me several times to make sure I got everything I needed from his work.  He was great at anticipating things I might need before I even thought of them.  It is always really satisfying to work with someone this professional and attentive.Eddie is a helpful person in all regards. We had a technical issue with our projector, and he stepped in and fixed it for us.  Not only is he a fantastic photographer, he is incredibly reliable, and a straight-up great person to work with.  We have already decided that Eddie is our photographer for all future events.

Look no further if you are looking for great pictures that don't feel canned and boring. The photoshoot I did was geared towards online dating and it was a great experience.Eddie is very knowledgeable about interesting locations for photos in all areas of the city. The photos and advice helped me be more confident and helped shape my outlook on online dating.A few of the pics were also perfect for my LinkedIn, so all of my social media got an upgrade. Eddie was super flexible and can accommodate your specific needs. He also made the whole experience painless: I had no idea what I was getting into and Eddie was really good at keeping it relaxed and guiding me through the process.Highly recommended! More...

Eddie is so great! He is extremely flexible with his time and always tries to work around everyone's schedule. On very short notice, we needed someone to help take pictures and Eddie was happy and willing to help!As far as the pictures we got, they were AMAZING. We gave him little to no direction because we had never been to the area as well, but he was able to take BEAUTIFUL pictures. He gave us a wide variety of options as well. I would most definitely continue to go to him because he is extremely kind, professional, and reasonably priced! More...

Eddie is awesome. I am not comfortable being in front of a camera, and Eddie took the edge off with good conversation and light humor. He is super professional, was timely, and turned around my photos extremely quickly. He gave awesome recommendations throughout the entire process. He helped me pick out the right outfit, and find the right locations. I would recommend working with Eddie to anyone. More...

Eddie is an absolutely amazing photographer. He is super professional, punctual, and most of all very skilled at what he does. We met in the mission for me to do some shots for a comp card I am working on for modeling. He was able to capture me in 4 different outfits in under two hours. He did a remarkable job capturing many versatile poses, styles, and facial images. To top it off, he was quick to return the images to me. I would totally use Eddie again, no doubt! More...

I had a blast working with Eddie Hernandez. We updated some headshots in early August on site around The Mission. We exchanged a few texts regarding wardrobe, and Eddie is a fan of bold, solid primary colors. As am I, so this worked out well. I did bring some furs with me, you know, since it was August in San Francisco, but overall the shoot was much less glam squad and much more urban sophisticate. I'm sure you could set expectation if you prefer more "boudoir" look and feel -  but overall I feel Eddie's forte is ubiquitiously "San Francisco": Effortlessly urbane. From his impeccable location shots in The Mission, to his unflappable professionalism when encountered with nude men watching our shoot (you knew I was going to bring up the naked leering Peeping Tom - and you should see my facial expressions he captured!), to his ease and desire to capture one's natural spirit and charisma. (Although, I'd be happy with a less wrinkled charisma, but hey - I'm a funny gal and laughing is dangerous for the skin).If you're looking for someone to capture your essence and the spirit of San Francisco/Bay Area, Eddie Hernandez is a premier choice.

I took headshots with Eddie last week in Oakland and I'm so impressed with his work! I felt really comfortable and at ease right away.

I love how the pictures turned out. The lighting, the background and just the overall quality. Eddie has a good eye and is great with choosing flattering angles. He really took his time and I felt comfortable. I ended up using 2 of the pictures as a cover for my books, one for each book. I plan to work with him for more headshots pretty soon. I highly recommend him. More...

Eddie was great to work with on my LinkedIn headshot, and I couldn't be happier with the results.  He made me feel really comfortable during the 'shoot' and was flexible in taking a variety of shots to give me some really good options.  I'd been putting off getting a headshot update, but I am so glad I did it (I now get lots of compliments) and it was actually an enjoyable experience with Eddie's professionalism and chill personality.  I highly recommend Eddie!

Eddie was absolutely fantastic to work with on my corporate headshot! I had reached out to a couple photographers, and I ended up going with him because he was one of the most responsive, flexible, and upfront. I don't take a lot of photos, including selfies, so it was great that Eddie provided just the right amount of input without being overbearing/confusing. We had some good laughs during our shoot which made the whole process that much more pleasant, and now I'm even considering setting up some time for my husband with Eddie. Definitely would highly recommend. More...

Eddie is a talented and skilled photographer, very professional and easy to work with. I've long wanted to get a professional headshot but have been putting it off. I found Eddie here on Yelp and reached out to him. I asked for a quote, and he responded back to me quickly and we were able to schedule a shoot within a short time period.During my photo session, Eddie gave me helpful tips and cues which made me feel relaxed and comfortable in front of the camera lens. We also went to different spots to test out the difference in lighting and backgrounds, and this left us with plenty of great photos to choose from!Eddie definitely has a creative eye for capturing shots in a natural, effortless way. I also loved his recommended spots - I thought they were unique and cool. The photos turned out beautifully with great lighting and were captured in the right angles. The exact style and feel that I was hoping for.The turn-around time for the photos was also surprisingly very fast. Eddie was able to put everything together much sooner than I had anticipated. He did a great job and I was blown away by the results. The hardest part for me after was deciding which photo to use as my official LinkedIn headshot. I really appreciate his recommendations and for giving me options for comparison. It's hard for me to distinguish minor differences in lighting and style, so it helped a lot that I was given different versions to compare side by side.I highly recommend Eddie if you are looking for awesome portraits shots and fast, quality work at a good price. It's well worth it! You won't be disappointed!! More...

Eddie was everything I could have hoped for in a professional photographer. He responded quickly to my request, which for me was very important, for I was pressed for time. He listened to my needs and was quick to understand and help me articulate them. He was able to make an  appointment for a session quickly, and was flexible about timing and location. He was a fantastic photographer to work with in terms of making me feel comfortable (this kind of thing is hardly my forte!!!! Was my first professional photograph in fact) without any artifice. He shot quickly and was efficient and his results, which he also produced incredibly quickly, were outstanding. I would recommend him 100% without hesitation. Smart, efficient and kind person. I'm truly a fan! He also was reasonably priced!!! More...

I never look forward to photos, immediate forced smile awkwardness in front of a camera BUT I left my session with Eddie feeling like a fabulous, beautiful and successful professional. Eddie took the lead on locations & wardrobe pairing, really knowing what makes sense and looks great. My favorite part was how he always showed me how the pics were coming out on his camera so that I could adjust. He was clear and calm with pose suggestions and as a result, everything turned out great. We shot for a few hours, including different locations and I easily have 10 headhsots to chose from. More...

Oakland Digital ODALC.org hired Eddie to take photos for our annual Inspiration Awards gala this past December (2014). We needed someone to take ambiance shots of the venue/crowd, shots of the speakers, guests, musician, honorees and volunteers and we were quite happy with Eddie's ability to navigate to/from the various rooms in the venue and obtain posed and candid shots throughout the event. He was professional and turned around the photos within a few days, so that we could share the photos on our website and various social media pages immediately following the event. Furthermore Eddie was able to place our photos in San Francisco Magazine through his connections - this was beyond what we were hoping to receive from his services. As a non-profit, we always welcome opportunities to obtain much exposure for Oakland Digital Arts & Literacy Center. modernluxury.com/scene/o…On behalf of the team at Oakland Digital, we would love to work with Eddie again on future projects/events. Together, let's continue to INSPIRE OAKLAND! More...

We hired Eddie back in August 2014 to take shots of our Fried Chicken fundraiser and the San Francisco Street Food Festival, an 80,000-person event in the Mission District. We cannot stress enough how amazing it is to work with Eddie. Not only was he exceptionally professional but he captured our shot list perfectly (even when we weren't always clear on what we needed during the chaos of the event). Finally, his photos were spectacular and we continue use them in digital and printed collateral. Since working with him at the events last year he has done photo shoots with several of our clients including spectacular portraits and food shots. Again, the quality of the photos has been nothing short of astounding, and we wholeheartedly look forward to working with him again. More...
