12 Testimonials


I have worked with many developers and designers over my career. I am no stranger to the process of website development. Chris and Hikari are a breath of fresh air in what can, in many cases, turn into a very frustrating process. They listen. They ask questions. They offer suggestions. They understand timelines. They bring their talent and positivity to the table. I would not have the store I have today without Photon- simple as that. We have had rave reviews on user experience, responsiveness across devices and our design- this is 100% Photon Factory. I highly recommend this amazing agency and team.

Loved working with Hikari from Photon Factory. She has great communications skills, a great eye for design and does excellent work! From now on, I'll only be using her for all my design and web work. Thanks again for all your help, Hikari! I couldn't have launched this business without you. :-)

I have recently contacted Chris to help us customizing various areas of our website. Our experience with him has been outstanding. Our communication was great, clear and to the point. He understood perfectly our requirements and he promptly completed all the tasks. The price was very reasonable and we are happy to recommend him to other small business in the area using Shopify.
We will certainly ask for his help again should we need to update or change anything on our website.

Working with Chris was fantastic! I contacted Chris with a tight deadline to launch our site and he was very responsive and able to work with our timelines. Both Chris and Hikari provided great ideas and listened to what I wanted from the site providing guidance when needed. Now that we are ready to launch Chris has made sure our team understands the functionality of Shopify and has made sure we are comfortable with the system - answering all my questions. I highly recommend contacting Chris to help with your Shopify store, I am extremely happy with how ours turned out!


I originally chose Chris based on his price range and I received excellent value.Chris listened to what I was looking for and immediately found a free theme that had the look that I was after.I had no experience with on line sales and Chris guided me through the entire process. Chris is an excellent communicator and very patient, taking the time to answer numerous questions and educate me along the way. He has always been available for tweaks to my sight and has offered many great suggestions that have made a huge difference.I would not hesitate to recommend Chris to anyone wanting to dip their toe into on line sales.Thanks again Chris and I look forward to working with you as my on line site evolves.


He worked really hard on my website even though, there wasn't much time until fixed date but he tried to get everything done by that date and made sure the website works okay.
Also he was communicating well with me. It was very helpful that he replayed email right away and even talking on a phone. I am very appreciate his work. Thank you.

The Antique Dog

Chris has been an absolute lifesaver for me in getting my Shopify store started. He has excellent knowledge of the platform, was able to work wonders with my theme, and has been a real pleasure to work with. He's professional, highly-skilled, and easy to work with. Chris is also really helpful in assessing whether a change or custom feature is worth the time it will take him to do it, which is something a non--developer like myself just can't judge. Definitely one of my top Odesk hires.

Flash on Heels

It was a great pleasure to work with Chris, very good communication and skill level. Would highly recommend. He performed beyond expectations! Was extremely professional and flexible! Thank You Chris for the great job.

Warehouse 2120

Would highly recommend Chris -- he's definitely a pro! We had an urgent issue and were thrilled with his responsiveness. He completed the job quickly, accurately and even went out of his way to help with an unexpected issue that arose (we were making a change in our theme which affected another area that we hadn't thought about). He took the lead to contact shopify support on our behalf, explained the issue to us and came up with an immediate fix. Couldn't ask for more!
