Lawrence did a great job in covering our birthday party event and in creating the highlights video. He was responsive on email and phone, and was able to deliver on our specific feedback and requirements very well. I am happy to recommend him. Thank you Lawrence!

Lawrence Gerald’s professionalism and experience made the resulting video excellent! He captured the service, guests as they entered, music, vocalists and all of the spoken voices in a crystal clear recording. Because he carefully chose a great staged position in the church, he was able to produce a beautiful video of all of the participants. Lawrence Gerald is a great communicator and he shared information about his experience including memorials, his equipment and excellent wireless mic system. He was in contact with me about timing and suggested including pictures, flower arrangements and a copy of the program in the video introduction. He arrived very early and set up his equipment in an unobtrusive style. Lawrence sent two DVDs in just a few days of editing time. He then followed up with additional copies at a very nominal price as many people requested them for family members and those who could not attend the service and reception. Whenever we need to document an event we will always call on Lawrence Gerald!

Lawrence Gerald of Clear Light Video Productions was very professional and responded to our inquiry and concerns. Looking forward to working with him tomorrow at our party.

Chethan C. / November 25, 2017 / Event Photography

Larry is the best wedding photographer. We highly recommend him. He came to the venue two hours before the guests arrived. He covered all parts of our wedding. He even came back for a photo shoot after our wedding to ensure we get the best photographs. We are so glad we chose him.

Jyoti C. / November 15, 2017 / Wedding Photography

Lawrence was on time, super friendly, and really wanted to make the video high quality and work for what I wanted. I will definitely contact him again for future training sessions that I need filmed!

Emily H. / August 10, 2017 / Event Videography

Lawrence was exceptional! He helped us plan our first look shots and beautifully captured our wedding ceremony at San Francisco's City Hall. After our ceremony Lawrence photographed our reception in our Westin St. Francis Hotel suite. He's very personable and easy to work with. Great photographer!

Ric S. / July 21, 2017/ Wedding Photography

Lawrence exceeded expectations in providing photography and video services for an 80th birthday celebration. His attention to detail and his passion for ensuring customer satisfaction during and after the event was truly outstanding. He arrived punctually at the beginning of the celebration, interacted with the guests in a professional and unobtrusive manner and remained later than the agreed upon time to ensure the capture of all important events of the celebration. He was easy to work with and takes great care and pride in his work. Highly recommended​!

Thomas H. / April 26, 2017 / Event Photography

Lawrence was really great! He was punctual, very professional and at the same time very cool. He did a great deal to help us stay calm and enjoy ourselves through the whole process in the city hall. He was friendly and knew quite a lot about the right spots and angles for taking superb photos. He did an excellent job, he delivered on time what he promised to and it was very pleasant to work with him. He is a very nice guy to chat with and he is very knowledgable about his trade. We didn't have to worry about anything concerning the photo coverage of the wedding ceremony. I would strongly recommend him for covering any ceremonial event and especially weddings in the SF City hall. Thank you Lawrence!

George T. / April 26, 2017 / Wedding Photography

So happy with Lawrence's job! He was hired to videotape and edit our 50th annual crabfeed show ( Crabaret ). He showed up at the rehearsal a day before, discussed with our sound technician about sound options, talked to the director about the content, checked the lighting and received a list with names of performers and acts. He showed up very early ( few hours ) on the day of the performance and was perfectly ready when the show started. He produced a demo dvd for my review, made a small change as requested and delivered the final tape with several copies earlier than we expected. It is not very often that one meets a professional of Lawrence's caliber. He has produced the best video that we ever had ( in the past we used amature video, but also professional footage but we never had a great quality product like the one Lawrence produced ). We will definitely use his services, not only for our annual Crabaret, but also for other projects in our community. We are recommending Lawrence's services to anyone without hesitation.

Dimitri C. / February 18, 2016 / Event Photography

I wish I could leave 6+ stars. I think this was a tough photo shoot because the lighting was so bad. It was inside an auditorium and I wanted audience shots. Lawrence DID IT! He moved around the audience unnoticed. He must have come on stage because I have wonderful photos from there as well. Here is what I loved so much. His professionalism. He was there 10 minutes prior to the time he said he would be and he got RIGHT to work.

Ray L. / March 5, 2017 / Event Photography

I couldn't be happier with the results. He brings out the best in your event for the character of the photo. He was punctual, attentive and had great ideas for shots. He did not disappoint, in fact, he over delivered.

Ankur S. / February 1, 2017 / Event Photography

Lawrence photographed a 75th birthday dinner at a restaurant in San Francisco for my family. It was close quarters and he was quick, friendly, professional and unobtrusive. He got all the shots we wanted plus many more. The photos were sent to me in less than 24 hours. Awesome! Very easy to work with and we'll definitely use him again in the future.

Amy G. / September 31, 2016 / Event Photography

Lawrence was Awesome!!! He went over and above my expectations for our son's wedding. He took all the right pictures and was professional and courteous! He made our son and new daughter in law's wedding MAGICAL! I will refer him to everyone and use him again for any special occasion. Thank you Lawrence!

Pam R. / September 17, 2016 / Wedding Photography

Roki T. / May 4, 2018 / Wedding and Event Photography

I call this pro a perfectionist. He went beyond my expectations, and his work quality is just great. He's so very passionate about his job that I had to chase him to go home. He stayed an extra hour just to get the job done well for no extra cost. He was very creative when it comes to giving posing direction in a very professional way. Above all, he said my work will be ready 5 days after the event, but it was actually ready in two days. I will definitely recommend him.
