Cathrine Legardh , Singer at Miss Legardh Music

“I highly recommend Karolina for photography needs. I am a designer here in San Francisco & wanted to use a local artist. Karolina provided me with beautiful unique images for 2 client projects so far. One was for Geneva Investments new office, we used 4 images of San Francisco that were made into giclee canvases 3′ x 4′. The next project was for a clients bedroom we wanted a large romantic evening sea & moon shot that she color enhanced for me. This giclee is 5′ x 7′ & came out stunning. Unique & a great value for my client for the impact we achieved. My clients are very happy & everyone loves knowing that a talented local artist is being supported vs. buying stock photo images. I look forward to working with Karolina more in the future. She is a very talented photographer with a truly artistic eye & very professional to work with. Cheers, Colleen Brand Fresh Spaces.”

“Karolina is fantastic. Not only is she a fabulous photographer, she’s warm, friendly and fun to spend time with during the shoot. We are extremely pleased with all the pictures and will definitely use her again.”

“I was looking for a local professional photographer to take pro portraits of our team members at Make Eat Easy to use in our profiles and bios. Karolina is an efficient, professional photographer that delivers exceptional high quality photos. She is very easy to work with. She gave us excellent guidance during the photo session. She’s also funny and very friendly, and this helped us to relax and enjoy the session. We had the completed photos within 2 days and she did a great job not only with the quality of the photos but with the digital retouching. All the team members couldn’t be happier with the results! We definitely will work with Karolina again.”
