Tammy and Mark (Memoire Studio):

- are, first and foremost, good photographers. They will give you the colorful, creative, touching photos you are hoping for.

- make you feel comfortable. They are extremely easy to be around. Especially if you take boudoir photos while getting ready for the ceremony, you will feel natural, at ease, and not self-conscious.

- are extremely hardworking. They give you 9 hours of time, and they work their butts off every minute of it. They are everywhere, since there are two of them. And the camera doesn't stop. When you get your proofs, they are surely a thoughtfully selected minority of the many thousands of photographs they take over those nine hours.

- are prompt in responding to emails. Very important aspect of customer service.

$4,000 was a lot for my wedding budget. But that seems to be the going rate for good wedding photographers in the S.F. Bay Area these days. If you're going to pay that kind of money, you will get what you pay for in Tammy and Mark.

My review of Tammy and Mark is long overdue but only because I wanted to wait until I got my wedding album to see the final product. Looking at what is the most beautiful wedding album ever (and do upgrade to the Queensberry if you can) my husband and I are even more beyond thankful and appreciative of Memoire Studio than we could ever have imagined. How Tammy and Mark were able to capture such natural and sweet moments is beyond me, and they are truly artists in wedding photography.

My husband and I got married last November 2013 in San Francisco and for both of us having come from the entertainment business, the photography was our most important vendor. We didn't want the typical wedding photographer, instead we were looking for a photographer who could capture artistic and unique pictures with a cinematic feel. We came across Memoire and instantly fell in love with their style.

Tammy and Mark are very communicative and in the months leading up to our wedding they answered every question. Mark came down to LA for our engagement photos which I recommend since it gave us a chance to get to know them before our wedding.

On the big day, Tammy and Mark arrived on time and stayed out of the way and were so stealth I sometimes forgot they were there! They were completely professional and both had their responsibilities that they executed immediately. I was on a very tight time schedule (Mark and Tammy were working a 12 hour day and never complained once).

After the wedding I received the wedding pics (and there were a LOT of pics) and my husband and I were completely thrilled with the finished product. Not only did Tammy and Mark take all the normal pics (bouquet shot, dress shot, etc since you need those) they captured some amazing moments I've never seen. I mean, what other photographer will climb the walls of the Palace of Fine Arts and hang with one arm for balance?

Tammy and Mark are the best, you will not regret booking them!!

Tammy and Mark=Super Talented! They are a husband and wife team and work extremely well with each other and their clients. We had the pleasure of working with them for both our engagement shoot and our wedding.

As with anything that is wedding related, making that special day memorable and magical is on the top of most brides' list, mine included. I didn't want to "hope for the best" when it came to our pictures. After looking at a few other portfolios, my husband and I decided Memoire Studio's style was what we wanted for our wedding. We figured doing an engagement shoot would be helpful so we could get comfortable with taking pictures and see how Tammy and Mark engaged us. We had a wonderful experience and they were extremely accommodating.

On our wedding day, they arrived early to scout the location and just started shooting right away. With the craziness of the day while getting ready, I didn't even realize they were in the room sometimes! They're really good at getting those candid shots! Our wedding day was perfect and we're so glad that we had super talented Tammy and Mark to capture our amazing day. We were complimented on so many of our pictures from our family and friends on how beautiful and creative the shots were. The hardest part was trying to figure out which shots to actually print to have in our home since there were so many awesome ones! Tammy and Mark are incredibly sweet and talented! They're the BEST!

From the first email, Tammy and Mark have absolutely been one of our favorite vendors to work with.

Their body of work is astounding. With their photojournalistic style, they capture moments that are full of natural emotion and meaning - not just posed shots with forced smiles (though those they do beautifully too). With our outdoor wedding in Lake Tahoe, they were able to work with a variety of lighting situations masterfully - especially when there was high sunlight, which was a major concern for us.

They were also very easy to work with. Tammy and Mark are a very charming couple who clearly knows their craft. They are very responsive and communicative - emails are responded to within 24 hours.

We highly recommend doing engagement photography with them before the wedding. It gave us a chance to understand how they work and gave Tammy and Mark experience shooting us (so they know how to make us look best).

The day of the wedding, they pulled us aside briefly for some posed shots and family pictures and then were unobtrusive for the rest of the night. Every once in a while you caught one in the corner of your eye and it was a nice reminder that you'd have something to remember that moment. They were very open to suggestions - places to shoot, particular poses, and the seemingly endless stream of family members to get pictures with.

Ultimately, Tammy and Mark were fantastic. Worth every penny.

Like many engaged couples, finding the right photographer for our wedding day was a top priority. We initially attempted to look for a local photographer in the San Diego area, but we really didn't find anyone that embodied the photojournalistic style that we admired. Low and behold, we came across Tammy & Mark from Memoire Studio in San Francisco, CA. Tammy & Mark are Wedding Photo Journalist Association (WPJA), Wedding and Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) and FEARLESS International Award Winners. We did our research and found that their link with these professional associations as well as their photographs on their blog and website warranted a face to face meeting.

So, we flew to our favorite city in Northern California-- San Francisco, and met up with Tammy & Mark. We were immediately amazed by their talents. We were able to see their portfolio in person and were on the edge of our seats. Their pictures told stories that kept us interested and intrigued. We literally kept saying "OMG" after turning each page and each photograph was unique, creative and bold. Tammy and Mark continuously push the envelope to create innovative artistry and we were excited about what they could do for us. Tammy & Mark's pictures went beyond the usual mainstream boundaries of photography and created something different, unique and special!

Besides Tammy & Mark's technical skills and photography acumen, they are a relief to be around. This was important to us because we wanted to be relaxed during our photo shoots. Both Tammy & Mark are down to earth, genuine and have a good sense of humor. We had a blast hanging out with them at our engagement photo shoot in San Francisco several months after we met them. We were able to get to know them more on a personal level and connected with them instantly. We enjoyed hearing their stories as a couple and as new parents to an energetic, cute, playful and sassy daughter.

We were very pleased that Tammy & Mark were able to capture our story on our wedding day. They were able to bring a third photographer, Victor, who matched their personality and style. Mark, Tammy and Victor were unnoticeably positioned all over the place, capturing every single angle and every single moment throughout our wedding day.

Tammy and Mark create magical moments every time they pick up the camera. We were very pleased with our engagement photos and preview wedding photos and can't wait to see the complete set! When we saw our wedding preview photos for the first time, our facial expressions and feelings reappeared as if we were getting married all over again. Even though our wedding was a few weeks ago, it brought us back to that place that was so very special to us. This is exactly what we were looking for!

I would absolutely-positively without-a-doubt highly recommend Memoire Studio, to anyone who wants top notch service and wants to re-experience the same feelings and emotions they experienced on their wedding day. If you want to experience "WOW" moments when viewing your photos, then Tammy & Mark do not disappoint. I can't say enough about them. At the beginning, we were just like any other couple that knew really nothing about photography, but kept searching for a legitimate photographer. Now that we are married and the experience has passed, we can truly say that Memoire Studio exceeded our expectations! Thank you so much Tammy and Mark.. Memoire Studio rocks! We love you guys!!!!!

I spent days and days searching for the prefect photographers for our wedding. Because I think that's the most important vendor for a wedding. It's really hard to tell by only looking at the pictures on websites and price ranges can be very different.
Anyway, I found Tammy & Mark (Memoire Studio). We were so lucky to have them as our photographers. So professional, so nice, and most importantly, Great Work!
I used to work with many photographers in my job. So I am very picky about this. They are the best choice for all the Brides and Grooms.
We love all our pictures, and so do our family & friends.

I found Memoire here on PW though a special they were offering for Boudoir pics. Tammy and Mark were very responsive and professional. Due to traveling on my end, I had to move around the date a few times and they were flexible and worked with my crazy schedule.

I was super nervous before my shoot but Mark and Tammy made me feel comfortable and they are two of the most laid back awesome people you'll ever meet. We ended up chit chatting as if we were all long time friends the entire time and the shoot was fun and full of laughs =D The pictures were absolutely amazing and I look forward to working with them again soon! You will not be disappointed if you book with Tammy and Mark! =D

Memoire Studio was suggested to us through a friend who had been in the bridal party of another wedding shot by them. After reviewing their portfolio and meeting with Tammy and Mark personally, we knew they were the perfect match for us and our wedding and we are thrilled with the end results!

It was very important to us that our pictures reflected our creativity and individuality. Tammy and Mark made sure we had all the traditional shots we needed for our family, but also captured the uniqueness of the day through very beautifully-composed and interesting points of view.

We believe Tammy and Mark are true artists and this is what separates them from many other wedding photographers. That represent both the feminine and masculine points of view, and they notice beauty in the details (They capture a rare moment with a hummingbird at our reception site). They are also an awesome, professional, and fun to be around couple. We couldn't have asked for more!

Tammy and Mark were lovely to work with- very professional and fun! We got lots of beautiful photos of the wedding, especially of the getting-ready and of the venue (tables, food, etc.). I should have asked them beforehand to get pictures of as many guests as possible, and especially family. The photographers focused more on the "action," so there were lots of photos of those who were up and dancing, but many of our guests didn't make it into any of the photos. I'm sure if I'd been more specific about what was important to us, Mark and Tammy would've been happy to accommodate our requests.
