I have worked with many photographers over the course of my 20 years in public relations, and I can honestly say that Laura is among the best, from her professional demeanor to her excellent work. We hired Laura to do some product shots and "tell a story" shots for my company, ETWater, and from the start, Laura was a consummate professional. She was very responsive and easy to get in touch with. She understood our needs and asked all of the right questions, including ones I would not have thought of, to make sure that we got what we wanted from our photo shoot. Laura did an incredible job for us with a very tight budget and a very short time frame for a photo shoot. I could not believe that in such a short time she was able to get to every shot on our list. She was fun and personable and such a good sport -she even got sprayed with a sprinkler to get one of our shots! In my opinion, she over-delivered and was an absolute pleasure to work with. I would recommend her without hesitation to any company in need of any kind of photography. - Jennifer G., ETWater Solutions, Novato, CA

Laura is absolutely one of the best photographers I have ever worked with. She photographed our wedding of 180 people and did so with a combination of ease and professionalism that I have rarely seen. The quality of the pictures and the aesthetic pleasure that both my wife and I continue to receive from them well surpassed even our mosts hopeful expectations! Further, it was a true pleasure to interact with Laura in all of the phases of her work: beyond being someone who does what she says she is going to do -- and then some -- she is genial, warm, and takes extra pains to understand how she can bring her considerable talents to optimally serve the situation. I happily give Laura my highest recommendation to anyone who wants a truly talented, professional, and genial photographer for any occasion. - Bruce V., Larkspur, CA

My non-profit is very lucky to have found Laura Taichman for photography. We've hired her to take photos at fundraising and other events and have consistently been thrilled with her photographs and her professionalism. Laura has photographed events, staff, and clients with grace, flexibility, humor, sensitivity, and creativity. Her photographs really show her technical skill, eye for detail and composition, instinct for anticipating photo opportunities, and ability to work under pressure. My staff and I have been particularly impressed with Laura's innate ability to connect with her subjects. These connections show in what she is able to capture and the access people are willing to give her. I give Laura my highest recommendation. She's an absolute pleasure to work with and very talented in her craft. - Diane L., Image for Success, San Rafael, CA

Laura has the unique ability to capture the very essence of life in her photographs. She evokes genuine emotion, humor, playfulness ... a wide spectrum of our human condition with her gentle direction and her creative view-point. I have worked with Laura both professionally and personally and she has framed my life for generations to come. I highly recommend her work, integrity and genuine commitment to excellence. - Violette F., Mill Valley, CA

Laura has a gift. She can capture the spirit of a person in a snap unlike any photographer we have ever worked with. The pictures she has taken of our daughter and our family are truly amazing. I wish we knew her when we got married. We would have loved to have had this amazingly talented woman with her critical eye, wonderful humor, calm competence and commitment to quality record our day. - Jon W., Mill Valley, CA

Laura Taichman is the consummate artist. I've experienced her work to be both unique and emotionally engaging. So when I was thinking about exploring online dating, I asked Laura if she would try to capture me on film. Instead of putting me on a stool in front of a backdrop and lights, she suggested that we meet one sunny spring morning among the trees of Mill Valley. The shoot consisted of a conversation between her and I. The camera seemed to disappear after a few minutes as I found license to just be me enjoying myself with a friend. The resulting images are of the person I want people to see. And the online responses I've received are beyond my expectations. Who knows, maybe some day I'll be approaching Laura about shooting my wedding too. - Murphy K., Berkeley, CA

Laura is a talented photographer with a true eye for color and composition. She was great at getting our 6 year old quadruplets to open up and to have fun during our photo shoot. Laura had terrific suggestions for locations and settings, as well as the ability to bring out emotion in each of her photographs. Her photographs are an absolute treasure to us. Besides her talent as a photographer, Laura is warm and made everything so easy and fun. She is a wonderful family photographer! - Elena G., Novato, CA

I LOVE the photos that you have taken of Sophia. They are so natural and capture great moments. We used one of our favorites photos for our holiday card - and everyone loved it! - Marian K., Mill Valley, CA

We're excited that someone "captured" our whirling dervish on film ... not an easy task. And by the way, I keep meaning to tell you how wonderful the auction photos are as well - you really got to the essence of each child, and I loved looking at each and every one! - Jamie M., Mill Valley, CA

We gave Laura a sense of what we wanted for the shoot and she nailed it. She captured shots of our son in 60 mins that we'd been trying to get for 9 months. We highly recommend working with Laura for your family pictures. - Dylan S., Mill Valley, CA
