Larry, I want to thank you for making my wedding event so awesome with your picture taking. The pictures are so natural, the video is also very nice to have, I did things I do not remember and the video is a great thing for my kids and grand kids to see. Thank you for being very considerate on the price and and thank you for staying later than planed. I would totally recommend you to be the photographer for any event. My family was impressed on how much energy and dedication you put in while taking all pictures and also ensuring that you were taking all requests from many people. You made a diffidence taking pictures of one of the my most important events of my life. Thank you so much:) Gecsabel Bardales

Amazing time with Michael Keel. His quality and work ethic are second to none. Comparable price to most high quality photographers. Professional in all the right sense. We would book him for any other event should we need professional photography done. Legit, thanks Michael.

Jeff was a true professional, arrived on time, dressed appropriately, was unobtrusive and polite. He checked in with me throughout the gig to determine where and who from our conference event needed to be captured on film. The resulting photographs were wonderful, a fabulous gallery of shots to choose from - relaxed and candid conversations, complimentary portraits of speakers and guests, beautifully focused. An extremely fast turnaround (less than 12 hours!) I'd highly recommend Jeff if you're looking for a professional event photographer. I feel lucky to have found him here on thumbtack.

Andrea served as event photographer for my baby shower at the Orinda Country Club. She was on time, very professional and very easy to work with. She sent over a sample photo, which will serve as my picky sister's holiday card photo. Seriously this says a lot! I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures from the event but know they will be beautiful! Highly recommend working with Andrea

Jen was a pleasure to work with and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a great Bay Area photographer. She knew her way around city hall and the civic ceremony process, which helped calm our nerves. Her directions during the photo shoot were clear, helpful, fun, and gentle. She is fantastic! Thank you so much, Jen.

Eric and Claire were a delight to have as our photographers. Each time we spoke with Eric, he came prepared with ideas on locations. Before the actual day, he scouted out additional locations. We liked his work which is why we picked him. But, our wedding was on Saturday and we've already seen some samples, and we love, love what we've seen so far. Eric is professional, accommodating and his passion for his work is apparent. Even our guests enjoyed his presence at the wedding. We couldn't be happier with our experience of working with him.

Cheshire was our event photographer at our annual holiday party. He did a great job! We loved all the images and the fact that he was early on site and stayed late to make sure he captured everything asked for. We highly recommend Cheshire Dave!

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.

Usman took pictures for us at our SF City Hall Civil Ceremony and we couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. This was my first time using Thumbtack and I wasn't sure of the process or exactly what to expect, but was extremely pleased with the outcome and how easy it was. As a photographer, Usman was truly a pleasure to work with - he knew the City Hall civil ceremony process and made everything easy for us and a lot of fun. We loved his professional yet laid back style and it made us feel very comfortable and at ease in front of the camera (something that we weren't used to). From getting the quote, arranging details, payment, etc. everything was efficient and fast, but also very well done. He knew the best spots in and around City Hall for pictures - and I couldn't believe how many we were able to take in just an hour with him. We received the retouched photos very quickly (in less than a week!) via Dropbox and absolutely LOVE them. He did an amazing job! We would definitely work with Usman again and will certainly recommend him to our friends and family. Thank you Usman for capturing our day so perfectly! It was a pleasure to have you be a part of it. Thank you!

My client needed an on-site photographer/videographer that was based in the Sacramento area, and Donald from Up Logic Media was the perfect fit for what we needed. Finding a professional you can trust to get the job done can be a nerve-racking, but Up Logic Media surpassed our expectations by a landslide.

Ashleigh is a true professional. In the two hours we had her, she captured all the requested shots plus many impromptu special moments. Her personality and kindness is what separates her from other photographers I have worked with in the past. Many friends and family members commented on her cheerfulness and smile. Her photos are as beautiful as she is. We all enjoyed having her here on our special day. I would hire Ashleigh again for any corporate or private function that I have in the future.

I don't even know where to begin. Melissa was FANTASTIC! I joked with her that she was the best decision I made for my wedding day aside from marrying my husband. She was a pleasure to talk to leading up to the event to help plan out the day. She went straight to work and was not disruptive at all, if anything she made our day more enjoyable. Such a positive spirit to be around, everyone in my family loved her presence. She wasn't pushy and let us do our own thing but gave us input and advice on where and how to pose. She gave me my photos faster than I could even process my wedding day! I AM OBSESSED with my pictures. They look ethereal because of her special touch with lighting and glow. If you're looking for a photographer for any event, you can stop looking and hire Melissa now!

Frank came to my rescue when my original photographer had an issue come up day before my event! Frank was quick to respond, get on the phone with me to talk through my event and desires and made it happen without any fuss! He showed up on time and started clicking. He took some amazing shots of my event and even came up with his own reco on poses that resulted is some great pictures! Our event was running few minutes behind and he didn’t penny pinch for every minute. I would strongly recommend Frank for your event!!!
