Usman is the best, and he made extra time for a few of our events to stay late and take some photos. Highly recommended and he and his team are so easy to work withJun 4, 2018Verified
Usman is a fantastic photographer!...He took pictures for our wedding and the results were amazing...Everyone were impress by the pictures, especially by the colors, framing and candid nature of the shots that very accurately captured the vibe.... I would highly recommend using Usman for any of your events.Jul 25, 2016VerifiedUsman Baporia Photography's reply
Vikas, thank you very much for granting me the opportunity to capture your big day! It was a very nice intimate event that had a great time to capture!
I hired Usman for our wedding photography and I had an excellent time working with him. We needed a photographer for the whole day (12 hours) as we were doing a Hindu ceremony in a temple followed by a reception at Wente Vineyards. We were also looking for someone who could understand both eastern and western customs and be friendly with our guests. We did a lot of research and finally discovered Usman through Thumbtack. My fiance and I loved his portfolio and we set up an in person meeting. After meeting him, we were confident that Usman can execute on our big day :) Usman also threw in a complimentary "engagement shoot"and we were able to shoot around City Hall before the wedding. He came on time on our wedding day. He was a pleasure to work with. My wife and the whole wedding party loved him. Some of the events did not happen as per our timeline but Usman was able to make adjustments. But the most important thing is that all the photos were awesome! Everyone LOVED them. We have already recommended Usman to several of our friends.Aug 20, 2018Verified

Working with Usman on our wedding day was a enjoyable and stress-free experience. Being an experience photographer for marrying couples at SF City Hall, he did an excellent job leading us and telling us about what shots worked best. Usman was very accomodating and fun to work with. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer who is talented, a professional, and all-around nice person!Jun 14, 2018Verified

I hired Usman for a surprise proposal. He worked with me to create the perfect situation. He provided great shots of the area to help tell the story and captured candid moments that I could have never planned for. He delivered stunning photos in less than two days and definitely exceeded expectations everywhere. I would recommend him and hire him again in a heartbeat.Mar 19, 2018Verified
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Lets talk. I want to know what exactly your goals are and how I can help you achieve them. If possible would love to meet and discuss this in person, but if a phone call works better that would be fine also. After that would like to receive a rough schedule about your event, and any things I should know about. Depending on the project will then provide you with a date that I aim to have the final product to you by.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?With seven plus years at a Advertising Agency, I know the importance of storytelling, and how images invoke certain emotions. With a creative background will treat each project as a way to showcase your story.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?Ive loved the act of documentation my whole life. I am a photographer because each day with a camera in my hands is an opportunity to help others capture and preserve special moments in time. I love being behind the lens because I get to tell stories and create art with amazing people who constantly inspire my creativity.
