Samantha is a photographer with real ARTISTIC TALENT and PROFESSIONALISM. Since this was my first time using Thumbtack.com, hiring a photographer, and getting married - I didn't know what to expect. Luckily, Samantha made a bid and her sample albums were SO fresh, earthy, sweet, and filled with rich colors and patterns. My then fiance and I knew instantly that she would be perfect to capture our low-key, rustic wedding at The Mitten Building in Redlands, CA in May 2016. We met once about a week before the wedding. She was totally relaxed and accommodating even though I was a bundle of nerves. At the wedding, she arrived early, and honestly, just worked her magic! She was always around but not intrusive, even her suggested poses for our portraits felt natural for us. About two months later, we received our finished photographs and they exceeded all of our expectations! Not only did she get the moments/details that made our wedding personal and charming, but she captured the feel/look that we were after. The camera angles, color accents, and funny moments added to the intimate home-feel of her wedding photography style. Our family and friends are super impressed with them too. Overall, we are truly happy to have trusted Samantha with capturing this big moment in our lives and we highly recommend her!

Corey was brilliant from start to finish. You have to consider that the client (me) was in another country for the whole time we discussed plans and ideas. Add to that Corey flying back to the US the day before our shoot and overall he did amazingly and produced some incredible photos for me and my girlfriend. Oh and there was the bit where I changed our outfits a few days before the shoot, from black and white to red and blue! But he seemed to take that in his stride and made everything work for us. Her and I were a little shy, a little awkward to start, but Corey helped so much to relax us, cracking the occasional joke and talking to us throughout the shoot. I did imagine there would be more instruction from Corey re. how and where to stand/pose. But looking back I think that would've made the shots look forced, so I totally appreciate his expertise on that. We got over 600 photos, which we absolutely love! Being in a long-distance relationship I can't say how important and valuable pictures of us being together are. And when they're taken professionally, it just makes them even more special. Thank you Corey!!

I hired Maria to take portrait photos of me back in 2009, and hers are some of the most beautiful shots ever taken of me! I am not photogenic, and it takes amazing skill to satisfy me when it comes to photos! The photos Maria took of me are stunning! I highly recommend her as a photographer.

I and my extended family have used Michael for children and family shoots as well as weddings for 30 years. His work is incomparable. The walls of our homes are art galleries of his black and white images, not only of our kids and our events but of images from his overseas travels that we have purchased and framed. He is unobtrusive, "invisible" as my brother-in-law said the other day, when he shoots a wedding. He is magical with kids and works with them until he gets compelling non-posed natural images. In the process, he makes the parents feel as though he has never had better subjects than their children. The shoot itself becomes a special memory, and the outcome - literally dozens of classics each and every time - a special gift. I love being surrounded by his work in my home.

We had a wonderful experience with Macrae. She is super nice, and a really talented photographer. She took us to a beautiful park, and took the most fabulous senior pictures of our daughter. I love both the Black and white photos, and the color photos are so beautiful and vibrant. I would definitely use her again!

I've known Alex for years and when he told me he was starting a photography company I knew it would be a successful one. Alex has always had an eye for detail and it shows in his work. He's one of the funniest guys I know and he's amazing with kids. I just recently worked with Alex for my DJ head shots. Here is a black-and-white that came out just perfect. Also submitted is a photo from a family event that I attended. After a few minutes of talking with Alex you will be at ease knowing you have picked the right professional to photograph your next event.

Beth was so gracious to take on our wedding last minute. It was our fault being more than an hour late. Well, horrendous bad traffic accident made makeup artist late making the bride late. No one's fault. Beth already had another engagement so we couldn't keep her longer but she made do with lots of pictures before as well as during and right after the ceremony. I wish I had communicated with her better in what I wanted, like providing a list and booked more time with her. She has a natural style, no weird possess and she also fixes up the photos, making people slimmer and younger! :-) If you want that, don't forget to let her know. The black and white versions are fun so are the cool effects she used on more panoramic shots of the ceremony with guests seated. The venue came out lovely. Looked so pretty and bright. I really liked the close up of the passage the Pastor read from. :-)

My husband and I are not really picture people and find it hard to strike a serious pose in front of cameras so we were hesitant to spend money on a professional photographer. But when I met Nicole, I knew instantly that I wanted her to join us at Palomar Mountain for our casual rustic lodge wedding and we are so happy with the outcome! She made us feel comfortable, she was very patient with us and our weird poses, took orders graciously (oh oh oh get that one!), took us to alternate locations and really captured the spirit of our celebration, especially with the candids. She even took a pre-wedding camping trip to the mountain to scout locations, now that's dedication! We have had nothing but wonderful compliments on her pictures! The day of the wedding was a blur and went by so fast. To me, the most important decision we made in our planning was to have Nicole capture the love and happiness with her camera. Now when we can look back at the day and remember it how it was: perfect! Thanks Nicole! (I was unable to upload color photos due to size; but the black and whites were just as amazing)

Tori has been taking photos of my family for the past 19 years. We treasure these photos and especially love the look of the black and white photos of our girls from ages one and up. She is flexible, creative, and talented. She always has great ideas for location and setting. The unposed photos are our favorites!

I am the type of person who likes to call photos,” anything you snap with your phone or 10 MP camera you got from Walmart is indeed a photo”. Naturally, I thought that originally. When I met Norm my view of photography and its complexity was astoundingly changed. He shot anything and it was the best thing ever--whether portraits of people, landscape and even actiony whatnots! Not only that he is hell bent on refining his pictures. So good, just got better. Alright you may say, “This is exagerated.” Well you may think, “I don’t believe you! This is propaganda!” But honestly, glance at his photos on his website and pages. These only skim the pile of his great works--you name it, he can do it and bag of frito lay chips. And not only to mention, he has an eye for everything from: how much lighting and how he should bend the sunlight to his whims! (Call him up! Forrizzle) He even uses camera utensils I never even heard of. (Did you know in order to shoot black and white photos, you use a red tint? I learned that much.) And not only to mention that he is patient and has the knees to kneel and get the needed shots. (His youth serves him like the keebler elves making cookies!) And also he is passionate about what he does, knowledgeable and even if you give him a rock, he can make it look pretty suave. Don’t expect ugly yearbook photos, expect grandeur presidential shots that are utterly crisp photos that are as clean as his lenses! And yes. He is all that and a bag of chips. A bag of delicious chips. No other company sounded so delicious.

Ms. Olenius provided superb photos of our daughter and her horse. She also took on our family photos including our horse and dog! She is a very talented and innovative photographer. Mallory took our daughter's senior photos. They were original and beautifully produced in both color and black and white with artistic coloration. I am happy to recommend her for any type of photo work. An excellent, creative talent.

Brady shot our wedding on Saturday the pictures are amazing. He used both ditial and film color black and white. We had our digital pics in just a few days which is unheard of. But we were able to see our wedding photos so quick which was so nice. His eye for candid pictures is unbelievable I cried when I saw so many natural feel pics one thing I stressed I wanted. He has such a passion highly recommend him. I can't stress enough how happy we are with his photos. We had 2 photographers but honestly we could of just had him and I would of been more then happy. Photos posted are digital the film ones I can't wait to see. And he gave me every photos letting me choose what I didn't want. Trust me you never get that. I will defiantly hire him for all my family photos and occasions from this day forward.
