The job was to take interior photos of two factories. Darren was on time to both shoots and couldn't of been nicer. His photographers were just lovely. I couldn't of been happier with him or his work. Thank you!

I recommend Danielle very highly. My husband and I did an engagement photoshoot last night. Danielle was on time, very fun and adventurous for creative pictures, puts you at ease, she loves what she does and that makes it great because you know the work will be good. We had a sunset shoot and it was perfect! She knew where to go, how to pose and also was open for more ideas if we wanted. We were there before the sunset so had fun before during and after it. We cannot wait to see all the photos! Thank you Danielle :) PS: she will be our wedding photographer as well.

My first experience with Kenny was an email exchange. The exchange was friendly, energetic and positive and set the tenor and tone for the entire experience. A phone conversation ensued, and that was again positive and friendly and upbeat. In fact, Kenny is not only a professional, but he’s one who is enthusiastic about his chosen métier. I mentioned that I’m a serious amateur photographer and he immediately jumped at the chance to talk about his passion. In other words, Kenny is not only interested in the business end of things but truly enjoys his work and talking about it. I immediately felt comfortable with him. Kenny was the first of several photographers from Thumbtack that were on my list of contacts. But, as a result of the very positive conversation I had with him, I decided to hire him right then and there. The day of the photo session Kenny was ready to go on time. He welcomed me warmly into his studio and we proceeded to create some very nice looking professional head shots and 3/4 shots. Probably because Kenny remembered talking to me about my interest in photography, he explained things as he went along such as how and why he was lighting his subject in a certain way. He loves “talking shop” and I think this is a sign of someone dedicated to his art. I think this kind of individual makes the best professional. And the proof is borne out of the results. Kenny created some very nice photos about which I’ve already received numerous compliments and enthusiastic praise from family, friends and colleagues alike. I would definitely hire Kenny again. And… I still enjoy talking to him about photography. We still exchange emails and he’s still friendly and genuine. I can highly recommend Kenny to you for your professional photo needs.

As a Realtor for 12 years I can confidently say that David is quick, quality and amazingly professional. In all the years of doing Real Estate I have only come across a very small amount of professional and qualified photographers and videographers, and David definitely fills that category. I called him on a Saturday and he made it to my listing within an hour, was fair on pricing and worked with me along the way to create a wonderful video. My clients were highly impressed as well as myself. I will be using David for all of my Real Estate needs moving forward.

From my first inquiry about the project to delivering our finished photos, I found Jessica to be a true first-class professional. Even my skeptical husband (who didn't think we needed professional photographers for a family shoot) was blown away with the photos and my entire family of 5 truly feel that we hit the "photographer jackpot" when we found Jessica and Bobby. Thank you for listening to our needs and for making us feel very comfortable during the shoots at Sunset Cliffs. My children loved the time you both spent with them and how you added some special creative magic to make some playful pictures for us. We really appreciate how you were also so responsive after the shoot, and for delivering our photos within a 3 day turnaround. We are definitely enjoying digitally viewing our family and individual photos now, but the hard part is selecting which photos of the many we all love to be "printed or framed." Bottom line, we are confident Jessica and Bobby will also exceed your expectations like they did ours. Your overall experience will be nothing short of remarkable.

Palo and Alex were our wedding videographers and put together an amazing edit! It was super easy working with them leading up to our big day and the day-of. They're fun people and got along well with our photographers and other vendors. We received our deliverables ( + raw footage) within reasonable amount of times. HIGHLY recommend them for any wedding. Your wedding day really is a blur, and we were more than happy with our decision to go with Palo to capture all the feels of the day/night.

Aamir with Aiya Photography has astounding talent linked with an amazing personality. Pictures come out so much better when you are working with someone where you can be yourself and have fun with . His creative art of taking photos I've seen on several occasions: Senior portraits, couple shoot with girlfriend, and also photos for a business marketing campaign. I am 100% confident when I am in front of a camera that Aamir is behind that the photos will be excellent, and that he will catch every important moment. I'm looking forward to many more shoots with Aiya Photography, and will definitely be giving him my business for the most important moments needing capturing. -Asaadullah Khan

My fiance and I hired Chasing Light to do our photo and video for our wedding. Their pricing was perfect for what we were looking for and we were very excited to be getting both photo and video by the same team. We recently had our engagement photos and cannot begin to explain how happy we are to have chosen them. Our photographer, Russ, was very flexible with the date and even helped us find the perfect location. He definitely listened to what we had in mind and was even ok with my fiance wearing his sunglasses for some of the shots. Russ was very easy to work with and had 2 preview images back to me within the next hour! On top of that, he had the rest of our images ready the next day and they are everything we hoped for and more! I have friends who had to wait weeks to get their engagement photos back. Needless to say, we are obsessed with our engagement photos and CANNOT wait to see how our wedding photos and video turn out.

I needed some professional photos for my LinkedIn account and WASIO photography was the perfect place. Sasha and Yaneck are two very talented photographers. I felt their humble presence created such an inviting atmosphere which made it easy and comfortable to be in front of the camera. Both of these photographers really take time to capture their client's personality. I appreciated their attention to detail; they understood that the smallest of details such as the position of a hand can improve the overall photo. I was very impressed with the level of skill and concentration that went into each photo. I really enjoyed my experience with WASIO photography and I know you will too.

My husband and I are so lucky to have found Mike and Sofia of You+Me/R3 Films to shoot our wedding video. Not only are they the most fun people ever, they are also super good at what they do! I was never comfortable being in front of the camera and I always thought it was super awkward kissing in front of strangers but our meeting with them prior to the event definitely put me at ease. They made us feel like we were long-time friends. And even if I still felt nervous in front of the camera the day of, they work so seamlessly that I sometimes forgot they were even there documenting the whole thing. They are true professionals, making sure to coordinate with other photographers and vendors to ensure the best cinematography possible; they sat with us to discuss their vision of our video based on our personality; they scoured the venue looking for the best backdrop; they use top of the line equipment so you know you're getting the best quality film; they had their own microphone so the video will have quality audio and not muffled sounds; they were on time --early actually which was awesome; they are priced so much more reasonably than other videographers out there without skimping on the outcome. Basically, if you want the best experience with your videographers on one of the most important days of your life, you will not go wrong with choosing Mike and Sofia. There's no one better!

He did a wonderful job. He even brought along with him an additional photograph at no charge to make sure that the lighting and everything was perfect for my products. I highly recommend him for any business that needs to have their products showcased a's well as any family photography. The pictures of the girls came out amazing and he even took home certain items I needed to be shot in the studio his fees are very reasonable and he is very nice and has very creative ideas. I would recommend him more than other people that I've worked with I highly suggest hiring him for any photography needs

My photographer was out of town, and I needed a sub fast. Mario was right there, did a great job, and was a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend Mario to anyone in need of a professional photographer. Quality, professionalism, great service, and just a real nice guy are what you can expect... Anthony B.

I hired Puneet to do a shoot for my business. He was very responsive, professional and artistic. It was so fun working with him and seeing the different ways he was highlighting my products. When I received my online gallery, I was in love. I couldn’t believe how amazing the photos turned out.. and with such quick turn around. I will definitely be hiring him again with my next batch of products.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
