Lawrence is nothing short from amazing! I was stood up by my photographer on my wedding day. With only 1hr to spare before my ceremony. Lawrence came through in the clutch with only 45min of notice. Not only did he make it in time. Our wedding pictures are Amazing!!! The turnaround time to receive my pictures was only 7hrs. I would definitely have Lawrence on speed dial if I ever need a photographer in the Bay Area!!!

Michael was awesome as our wedding day photographer. He made us all feel super comfortable and was conscious about making sure we did not feel like the picture taking was stealing time away from our wedding festivities. He also was great about where and when to get the best shots and was super accommodating to any ideas we had. he was also quick with the turnaround and the end result pictures were amazing! Would highly recommend for a shoot.

Kuks did the most incredible job shooting photos for my best friend's very private rooftop wedding. The photos came out beautifully and perfectly captured the magic of the event. The whole experience was totally relaxed and natural-we never felt like we were 'posing for the camera'. He was able to catch such sweet intimate moments of the ceremony completely candidly. I am so glad that I have his contact info for future events and I will absolutely recommend him to my friends for their photography needs. 5 stars!

Cindy was the exact personality you need in a wedding photographer: caring and assertive in her direction, without being pushy. She was incredibly open and kind to all our friends and family. She's dependable and calming. And of course the photos: they were beautiful beyond our expectations!

Sheila is not only a talented photographer but also very professional. She is very communicative and was a pleasure to work with. She was a joy to have around during the wedding day and was honestly a "fly on the wall" unlike other wedding photographers who are too "in it". The pictures she takes are beautiful and extremely well priced. I would not hesitate to work with her again. I actually look forward to it.

We had our pre wedding photoshoot done by Diane and it was a great experience. We were visiting SF for a few days and were wondering if we will be able to capture the essence of the place in the photoshoot, but Diane drove us to the most beautiful places in the city and clicked lifelong memories. We had some pictures clicked with our friends as well and they came out really well. Diane was very flexible and it was fun spending the entire day with her. She made us really comfortable and helped us all along the photoshoot. I will highly recommend her to couples for their wedding and prewedding photoshoots.

I got my sister an engagement style shoot in sanfrancisco as a part of her wedding present. I wasn't sure if she would like it (she isnt really that into pictures) but I am so happy that I did. They said that they had an absolutely amazing experience and that Andrea is literally the nicest most awesome photographer in the world. She brought champagne made the experience special, hung out with them, made them feel relaxed, took 2 hours of amazing photos at multiple locations, and then even gave them a lovely restaurant recommendation and then checked in after to see if they liked with. She was easy to work with, super helpful in arranging and planning everything, and a very fair price. Thanks Andrea!

Patrick was our wedding photographer, and he went above and beyond for us in too many ways to list. He was professional, hardworking and thoughtful in every way, disappearing into the background yet catching so many amazing moments throughout the evening. Patrick is not your traditional wedding photographer, but that was not what we were looking for. His work speaks for itself, and we recommend him highly.

We used LuvlyProduction for our wedding photobooth in May 2018. I was impressed by their responsiveness and their desire to make sure we had a good experience working with them. Our guests really enjoyed the props and enclosed photobooth!!! I had no complaints from our coordinator about setup or teardown. Would not hesitate to book again :)

Eric and his assistant, Claire were so professionally unobtrusive during my daughter’s wedding event, I did not even notice they were there. The proof of their presence is in the captivating candid photos and the beautiful artistic photos that recorded the entire day. Everyone looks amazing. Eric perfectly captured the unique personalities of the bride and groom throughput the day. I was not able to meet Eric until the day of the wedding because I live overseas. I chose based upon his portfolio and online communication. What could have been a series of pretty pictures of a cookie cutter country club wedding with another photographer is instead a perfect blend of photojournalism, fine art, and traditional styles, Eric’s and Claire’s work show the very present, palpable feelings between the bride and groom. Perfect.

If you’ve been waiting for “that one review” to really prove that Oaktown Boudoir is the way to go- don’t wait anymore! Cheshire Isaacs is a true exemplar of all that a professional boudoir photographer should strive to be. He is open and receptive to his client’s ideas without losing focus. He is honest and genuine without ever being insensitive. He is incredibly professional without ever being stuffy. The Bay Area is filled with Boudoir Photographers, so I guess the best way to write a proper review is to outline what exactly my own (popular) concerns were and how Cheshire proved triumphant! 1. Will I be comfortable? As a young woman, I was a little concerned about being erotically photographed by a man. Having been through a shoot, it’s obvious that Cheshire cares- from his personally designed music playlists (made in the interest of making the experience as comfortable as possible) to his handmade cheese and cracker platters. He continually went above and beyond for my session and I admire his passion, enthusiasm, and dedication. It shows in both his beautiful work and the long-lasting relationships he has with his clients. He spoke about his wife and daughter frequently, something that showed me his appreciation and respect for women, immediately putting me at ease. 2. Can his studio fit more than one “style” of photoshoot? Cheshire’s studio is open, bright, and filled with possibilities. He can transform the space to fit, I kid you not, any personality and style. In a matter of minutes (just enough time to refill a wine glass), his studio can go from a brightly lit angelic state to a dark, sexy, and sultry one. He mentioned having custom-designed the space alongside his wife, something that told me just how invested he was in the style and overall vibe of his studio. For my images in particular, I knew that I wanted little editing and wanted the images to be as “real” as possible. Somehow Cheshire still made it look like I was a model and knew exactly how to manipulate each pose to accentuate all the good and cleverly soften all the bad (without photoshop). 3. Will I get my money’s worth? Whichever amount of time you decide to book Cheshire for, know that not a minute will be wasted. He knows how to get down to business and not waste time while simultaneously not rushing through any poses. This guy was sweating as he climbed up and down ladders, moved heavy couches and bed sets, and adjusted lights. His hard work pays off in the beauty of his finished products! His experience in the field is obvious in the way he can quickly evaluate a pose and make small nuanced changes in position to get a desired look. I am but a poor college student and Cheshire’s prices were definitely better than most photographers around. He could easily charge three times as much for his services and would still be the deal of a lifetime. 4. Will my images be published? Cheshire was very thorough and attentive when listening to what I was comfortable with. He assured me that no images would be posted without explicit approval. In the end, his work was so beautiful that I would have been fine with it being printed on billboards and bus ads- really! 5. What about makeup? Cheshire notified me in one of our first correspondences that he had a partnership with a makeup artist, Thuy, who would be on-site for a small fee. Let me tell you- Thuy is more than simply a makeup artist- she really does it all. Not only did she do an absolutely spectacular job with my makeup, but she was the ultimate hype-woman!!! She stayed for nearly the entire session for touch-ups, glamour, and enthusiastic words of support. The experience wouldn’t have been the same without her. Every person that sees the finished images says, “Wow, I wish I’d done something like this.” Don’t be that person! Don’t wait another day, don’t look for another review, don’t google “Boudoir Photographer” again. Oaktown Boudoir is that good. Doing a boudoir shoot is obviously a large lump sum of money to dedicate to something that isn’t necessarily “necessary,” but my experience with Oaktown Boudoir is something that I will truly treasure for the rest of my life and always reflect on with a smile and a deep, deep appreciation for Cheshire Isaacs! He knows how to make a client feel like a friend, and that’s something you don’t come by often.

I had to do a short congratulatory video for a friend who is collecting a major award at the Cannes Festival. I come from the ad industry so I'm used to working with filmmakers, photographers etc; I found Ilja to be totally professional, easy to work with (even when I switched the brief) and affordable. He also has a good eye for lighting and performance. Would I use him again? Absolutely.

We hired Tri to do some commercial photography for our hotel project. Tri was very professional and willing to cater around our hectic schedule. From start to finish, Tri was extremely responsive in communication. We would definitely recommend Tri to any other business owners seeking professional commercial photography for their business!

Rich Jarvis was the photographer for our wedding, and I couldn't be happier with his thorough documentation of our big day. Rich has a great eye and gives good direction. He listened to what we wanted too. He got pictures of all major objects and our guests, plus awe inspiring shots of us. He's equally skilled at candid shots, picking touching and funny moments. He also has a very calming presence which is so important on such a nerve racking day. I highly recommend hiring him.

It was a pleasure working with Omar all along. Even though I only got in touch with him 10 days before my wedding he still found time to meet with us and discuss what wedding style we are expecting, he showed us samples of previous work similar to what we were expecting. On the wedding day he showed up on time and suited up. He proceeded to take pictures of the hall and to take family and couples pictures. Even through the stress of a wedding he stayed calm and managed to blend in with the guests (if it weren't for the camera you'd think he's a guest!) which helped him take great pictures that he also delivered to us on time! 100% would hire again!

Working with Catey was fantastic! She's a ton of fun to be around, extremely personable, and is a well-seasoned photographer. After hearing our ideas for our engagement and wedding shoots, she scouted potential spots for us, and had a great game plan to help us capture the best shots. We are extremely happy we found Catey, and she would absolutely be our 1st choice for any other occasions we'd like to have professionally photographed. We only hope that when the time comes, she isn't too busy to fit us in! Thanks for everything, Catey!!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does it cost for a photographer for a wedding?

Finding the right wedding photographer can make a big difference for your ceremony. Nationally, the average wedding photographer’s price ranges from $800 to $1,000, but costs can be much higher in areas like Chicago, New York or Los Angeles where some couples spend $2,000 to $5,000 or more for the photographer they want. Factors that can affect your wedding photographer prices include the photographer’s reputation and experience. Heavy hitters can command top rates, especially during wedding-season weekends. Day of the week also affects your cost. You may get a $200 discount on wedding photographer prices if you get married on a Friday in November rather than a Saturday in June. Time onsite is also an important cost factor. Hiring a photographer to snap photos from the moment you wake up until after last call at the reception is going to cost more than five hours of pictures during the day. Multiple photographers, special lighting, and videography will also increase your costs. Ultimately you want to find someone who has a style you love and can provide the number of edited shots you want for a price you can handle. Learn more about hiring a wedding photographer.
