Eric did a fantastic job with our rehearsal party and wedding. He's very professional with a keen eye for finding just the right photo. I'm quite detail-oriented and had a pretty high bar for our photos, and Eric nailed it. His photos are creative, kind, and artistic without being sanguine.I also felt like his prices, which I compared with three other photographers, were quite reasonable. I highly recommend Eric!

Before our shoot, Eric went over in detail what to expect if we were to choose either an in studio or outside photo shoot. He was thorough and quick to respond with all the questions I had. On the day of our shoot, he was on time and very easy to work with. We had our shoot outside with our kids and I am very happy with the results. More...

We just had our City Hall photo session with Eric on 02/14/19.  Eric arrived on time with enthusiasm and a big smile.   He made sure my bride and I look great and feeling relax for the photoshoot.  He knew the good spots in City Hall for great looking photos.  Very accommodating with our couple and group photo requests.  We enjoyed working with Eric.

Eric took photos of my family. First of all, Eric is a wonderful person himself. He was not a just a photographer in San Francisco. He wanted his customers to experience good times in SF and leave the moments in his photos. He was willing to give us so much information about location, weather, where to go while we are in SF.Secondly, he was very trustworthy and reliable.He was easy to communicate and he also knows how to make a contact with customers. He was keep in touch before we got to SF, he called a day before to confirm our appointment, and he picked up us at a hotel. Moreover, he was very patient. I have two years boy and he is very active. He was running around while we took photos. And Eric was strived to take best shots he could do. And he drove us to Pacific Heights, Marina and Cow Hollow where I didn't know about before he showed us. He changed my thoughts about San Francisco from a crazy busy city to a beautiful city.Lastly, I saw the photos he took which were more than I expected. I hope I can work with him again. More...

Eric took photos of my engagement with my Fiancé and did a brilliant job! We planned a three hour photoshoot at Legion of Honor and Baker beach. We had tons of questions before the photoshoot but Eric addressed them satisfactorily and put us at ease with what was to come. He was thoroughly prepared with his gear and did homework for photoshoot at these locations and that too for engagement. This helped us immensely as he suggested poses and various locations and activities to make for candid and beautiful photos. The result was beautiful photos and we are so happy Eric's job! We would highly recommend Eric for photo related events. I don't think anyone can go wrong with him. More...

Eric took photos of my family (including my somewhat uncooperative one year old), and they turned out great! I was very happy with the quality of the photos, and also surprised at how many great shots he got in just one hour. Eric definitely exceeded my expectations. He was also friendly and easy to communicate with. I would definitely recommend North Point Photography and would happily work with Eric again. More...

Eric is a first class photographer that helped us even from a distance to make my bonus daughter's wedding memorable. We planned a "destination" wedding in San Francisco. Very small. Intimate and his responsiveness was stellar. His suggestions amazing and all of it very easy! He even took the brides to a Cypress scenic view before the dinner location. He provided an online sneek peak of the photos in 24 hours too as we were all traveling. Looking back at the photos fills our souls with all the love and happiness of that special day. More...

We found Eric online and didn't know what to expect. I must say, Eric surpassed our expectations in his professionalism, responsiveness, and attention to detail. We had a terrific experience from beginning to end. Eric was patient, clearly experienced, and flexible. I immediately gave his business cards to several of my friends after our photo shoot. I also found Eric's rate very reasonable. We love the pictures he took and upon ordering prints online, we received the final product promptly. I HIGHLY recommend Eric for family photography.

Eric and his lighting assistant, Claire, did an AMAZING job at my recent wedding on February 17, 2018 at the Elks Lodge in South San Francisco! I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone in search of a local photographer.Amidst wedding planning and looking at expenses, my now husband and I, finally decided that we should have a photographer after all. We were nervous about prices, and after contacting many other photographers, we felt that it might be out of our desired budget. I came across Thumbtack on Facebook, and requested photography services. Eric contacted me within minutes, and quickly followed up via email and later phone. He was super easy to work with, creative, and really had a great vision for what we wanted captured on our special day. He also offered an incredibly reasonable price for all that he offers. He helped put our minds at ease, and assisted us with coming up with a tentative schedule that ended up working effortlessly. He is very great at giving direction when taking photos, and makes everyone feel comfortable. He is also great at working with other vendors, as he worked very well with our DJ to coordinate our evening's events.I couldn't be happier with the "Quick Peek" that he sent me a few days later, and am incredibly excited to see the rest! The photos are beautiful! Thank you so much, Eric and Claire for providing us with such wonderful memories!npointphoto.com/Clients/… More...

Eric and his assistant Siana did an amazing job photographing my SF City Hall wedding. They know the building very well and suggested great spots for us to shoot. They were incredibly kind, flexible, and easy to work with. The best thing was that Eric sent me a great collection of edited photos just hours after the wedding! I was incredibly impressed by this. He was also very quick to send all the photos. We are so happy with the results and couldn't be happier! Thank you Eric and Siana! More...

Eric is a very professional photographer. My husband and I did headshots with him and everything turned out beautiful even before editing. Eric is very talented and easy to work with. He definitely listens to what you want and I recommend not being shy about your own thoughts on how you want them to look. At the end of the day, you want to look your best! And my husband and i could not be happier with the results. Thank you Eric. More...

Eric and Sienna are amazing partners. Eric met with us before our wedding day and took his time to get to know us as a couple. He knew we loved black and white photos and made sure our portfolio included looks of it. He is extremely patient when it comes to family pictures!  We have large families from both sides and getting everyone into a picture is extremely hard but they were extremely patient and made sure everyone was included. I highly recommend them! More...

I was looking for a photographer who could take care my business needs for a while but without any luck. One day he happened to be there and free so we just connected. Eric is man who is patient with great artistic talent, both are critical to his successes. The rapport he  developed with me right away was his warmth, encouraging, and caring which put me at ease put my best foot forward. Thank you Eric for your professional support and I will continue to work with you as we have discussed  to accomplish my projects. More...

Eric just did our wedding photos in November. He was super easy to work with and he really made the whole experience really fun and memorable. The pictures turned out great and he made my husband feel super comfortable with pictures - since my husband is not much of a picture guy. If you are looking to do a City Hall wedding, he is very familiar with the City Hall and knows all the good spots to take your memorable photos. My girlfriend actually used Eric for her family photos! Eric - will be sending you a request soon in the future for family pictures! More...

Eric and Siana did an awesome job with our San Francisco city hall pictures in dec. It was not an easy task to book a wedding photographer I knew very little about especially photography itself. Their work is worth our investment. We also booked Eric and his team for our upcoming dinner reception in May. Can't wait to work with them again! Thanks for the beautiful memories! More...

I met Eric at the David's Bridal shop in Milpitas. He was super friendly, professional and responsible. Since I got married in the San Francisco City Hall, Eric has a lot of experiences of taking great pictures there. He was very creative and all the pictures turned out to be great! We got all the photos on a CD a week after our wedding. Eric personally dropped off the CD to my workplace so he can be sure it arrived to me safely. I would recommend Eric to anyone who wants to have nice wedding pictures! More...

Eric and his team at North Point Photography have been an absolute pleasure to work with for our wedding.  From the first time we contacted Eric through emails and phone calls, we were able to have a straight-to-the-point discussion regarding our budget and our expectations.  We note here that he was very responsive and prompt in returning all of our emails and phone calls.  We subsequently arranged to meet at David's Bridal in San Mateo.  At the time, Eric showed us some of his previous works and explained to us in further detail the type of service he and his photographers were able to provide.  He was also very candid and straightforward regarding the pricing, with no hidden costs or surprises along the way. On the day of the wedding, we were greeted by two photographers affiliated with North Point Photography, Ashley and Siana.  Siana arrived 20 minutes early and Ashley was well prepared as well.  The two were very professional and courteous in every respect, from kindly taking their shoes off inside our Chinese household to not missing a beat in capturing our precious moments despite the glaring hot weather outside.  They were extremely flexible and met all of our requests concerning who and where to take our photos before, during and after the ceremony and reception.  One suggestion we may have for them is to let us know if our attires had wrinkles or if our bow tie was crooked or if the groom's hair was sticking up. After the wedding, Eric walked us through his editing process and explained to us the different types of lighting and textures he can add to make our pictures look even better than they were in their original state.  We appreciate that he gave us a realistic number of pictures we should select to optimize his editing process. Overall, we were extremely pleased and satisfied with North Point Photography.  We would definitely recommend Eric, Sianna, and Ashley to our friends. More...

Eric and his associate were truly a pleasure to work with on our very important day.  They took full advantage of our ocean side wedding location and took the lead in suggesting the best places to shoot while demonstrating total passion in wanting to get the shot right each and every time.  Never did we feel rushed or needing to re-direct their attention, which made our focus on each other and our guests much simpler.  In the end, we ended up with a quick turn around of a series of photos that turned out to be simply stunning!  In addition, his openness to our editing suggestions helped make this a very open process.  As for price, from what I have seen, he is simply the best locally for the quality of photos you get. If you're looking for an excellent local photographer, you can't go wrong with Eric and North Point Photography. More...

My fiancé and I had our engagement photos with Eric at North Point. Eric was awesome to work with. He was very easy to get a hold of, and quick to respond to my questions. He listened to my ideas, and was willing to drive to Napa from San Fran. We had a three hour session, and we thought he charged a very reasonable price for the quality of his work. On the day of the engagement photos, he came with a lighting specialist who all photographed us. We basically had two people shooting pictures at all times. They both worked together and gave us great advice. After the engagement shoot, he was very fast to post preliminary pictures. We had our shoot on a Saturday, and he had posted pictures by Sunday. I live in Chicago, so he's burning me a disk with all of our images, and we are going to pick out the best images.  We were very impressed, and we would definitely recommend Eric! More...

We really enjoyed working with Eric from the time we met him (he put us at ease & showed many samples of his work) to our wedding day and everything in between.  Eric was always available to talk and responded quickly to emails and calls.  As other reviews have mentioned, he is thorough about details (i.e. background, lighting, etc.) which makes for beautiful prints.  We had a great time during our engagement session and loved how the photos came out.  He also made a great slideshow for us, using our engagement and personal photos, for us to show at our wedding - we LOVED it and so did our guests.  He was also very quick to get our engagement and wedding prints (online and digital) to us.  We had so much fun looking through our photos to relive the whole day over.  I planned to have a "shot-list," but it got lost somewhere in the planning process, so there are a few photos I wish I got...but, thankfully, Eric and his partner were able to get shots I never would have thought to request/take.  We recommend North Point Photography for your special occasion or anytime pictures and we look forward to working with them again.

We reviewed many photographers' portfolios before choosing Eric as our wedding photographer. He did both our City Hall legal ceremony and our Indian-American religious ceremony. He was a great listener, our guests loved his personality, and his assistant was lovely as well. He went way above and beyond to contribute to the party. Oh, and also -- his photos were technically flawless and just really beautiful. We had no end of compliments about him. He posted our photos online promptly, and now we just have to get them in person. I could not recommend Eric and his team more highly, and am so glad we found him! When you do a consultation, make sure you go through his different styles and talk about which you like most -- he really was able to tailor our photos to our preferences because he knew in advance our preferences.

Eric is an amazing photographer. I tend to be very picky, and always hate the way I look in photos...that was before I saw myself in Eric's pictures.  I was meeting different photographers for our wedding, and Eric was referred to us by a friend.  When my husband and I met with Eric he  spent a great deal of time talking to us, and explaining his techniques, and listened to and answered all my questions.  He even took a couple of shots of us to show us on the spot how his work turns out.  When you meet with Eric he makes you feel comfortable, and you can see how passionate he is about photography.We had two weddings, one Indian and one American.  Eric photographed both weddings, I was blown away by the pictures.  They are amazing!  Eric is very patient, willing to listen, and work with you and your own style as well.  I had some different ideas of how I would like to do some of my pictures, and he was more than happy to work with me on making those pics happen.  He is very prompt on email/phone as well.  I appreciated his quickness and professionalism.  When you ask something of Eric, he not only gives you what you ask but goes above and beyond.  His pictures are absolutely beautiful.  I am so happy we chose Eric to do our wedding photography .  Pictures are a lasting impression; memories that will not fade away. I believe it is very important to have quality photos and Eric truly delivers.  I am very happy both with our photos and with Eric  :) More...

As a small business owner, I needed a photo for my website, LinkedIn and Facebook.   I searched through the Yelp recommendations and found another small business owner who is a portrait photographer, Eric Guarisco.  Eric works in the Marina district and is an amazing photographer.  After viewing his portfolio, I knew he was the one.  Prior to the shoot, Eric recommended a make-up artist, Laura, to work with us.  After thinking a nanosecond, I consented.   After all, I need all the help I can get.  I am NEVER happy with photos and always edit myself out of group shots.  I am so pleased with the results of the photo shoot with Eric and Laura that I came home immediately and uploaded the photos.After working with Laura, my recommendation is don't even think about NOT using a make-up artist when you are investing the time and money to get a professional portrait done.   Laura did not only my make-up but styled my hair.  During the shoot, she was adjusting my clothes, make-up, hair and body positioning, plus making me laugh.  Result: great photos!These two professionals care about their work and were easy and fun to work with.  I can't recommend them highly enough.

After interviewing 4 photographers, we picked Eric for our wedding.  Eric is an amazing guy to deal with. He is very friendly and willing to share his knowledge on photography.  Being a photography buff myself, I know that Eric knows his stuff.  He has a good artistic side complemented with his technical knowledge on photography.   My wife and I are very happy with the photos he took.  He was able to capture the feel and essence of our wedding - from preparations, ceremony and the reception.   Also, I would like to commend Christie (Kristie) who was assisting Eric on our day.  She was very pleasant and we love her pictures too.  Thanks to both of you for capturing the memorable moments of our event.    You are highly recommended.

Finding a wedding photographer can be a really hard task. I was lucky enough to have run into Eric Guarisco in front of David's Bridal. He was delivering a framed photo of one of his previous clients and the photo was beautiful. He captured the bride and groom as well as the beautiful landscape in the background, so I took his business card. I emailed him and he responded very quickly, we spoke on the phone and then we went to his house to meet up with him. We spent a lot of time with him going over different packages and options. Then he showed us some photos that he had taken from other weddings and some of his nature shots that were just beautiful. We were sold off the bat. We had numerous email exchanges about details and timing to get the most pictures that we could get in our time frame. He always emailed me back right away, which is very calming for a bride trying to get all of the other details of the wedding taken care of. We met with him again in person a week before the wedding to go over the locations that we were going to be at so he could make sure we could get the best pictures possible. Eric was more than willing to work with our videographer to make sure every moment was captured. Eric is so passionate about what he does and takes such pride in his work and it shows in the end results. All of my family and friends were so happy with the way the pictures came out and even more amazing, he had them online for us to view just a couple of days after the wedding and had the CD's at my door less than a week after! I would highly recommend North Point Photography and will with much enthusiasm to all my friends, family and strangers alike that have an event that is special for them. If you are considering which photography company to go with, I would definitely give Eric a call or just go to his website and see what beautiful work he does, you will not be disappointed. More...

Q&A

I have been passionate about photography since the first time my dad put a Kodak Instamatic camera in my hands. Looking through the viewfinder seemed almost magical to me.

Over the years the enthusiasm has only grown. I am grateful and blessed to be able to make a living following my passion: photography.
