Introduction
PLEASE READ THIS NOTE FULLY BEFORE CONTACTING ME OR ASKING FOR MY AVAILABILITY ON THUMBTACK: Please only contact me if you are serious about hiring me for a photoshoot and are ok with the my rate (250/hr. for short events but higher for weddings/corporate events). I DON'T BARGAIN ON MY RATE. If you are unsure or shopping around or my rate does not fit your needs please hold off on contacting me until you’ve made a decision to hire a photographer. Thumbtack charges Pros as soon as you reach out to them even if you don’t end up hiring them. Again, please don't reach out to me if your still shopping around, comparing prices, if I don't fit your budget, getting quotes or not ready to hire. ONLY REACH OUT TO ME OR REQUEST MY AVAILABILITY THROUGH THUMBTACK WHEN YOU ARE READY TO MOVE FORWARD WITH THE BOOKING AND ONLY CONSIDERING TO HIRE ME AS A PHOTOGRAPHER SO YOUR READY TO PUT DOWN A DEPOSIT TO BOOK YOUR DATE. Thank you so much for your understanding. Hi there, welcome! I love creating long-lasting images that capture those special moments so that those portraits remain a cornerstone of your memory. I do this out of pure passion for the art of photography and the experience of seeing the joy of my customers from receiving memorable images. My goal with every client is not to click a button on a camera. I walk my clients through the entire journey of having a photoshoot. Rest assured by hiring me you will get the pictures that you will cherish for a long time. So why should someone hire me? In one word - QUALITY. Every customer gets the best quality images and the best customer service. That is my goal regardless of if you hire me for half an hour of portraits or a week of corporate conference or an elaborate wedding. I shoot with very expensive gear to produce high resolution images. I am always available to answer questions and assist my customers in any way to help us create amazing images for them. While most of my work on Thumbtack revolves around weddings/engagements/birthday parties, I also do a lot of work for corporations, non-profits, schools, colleges and universities. I have vast experience working for large enterprises from covering office events to large multi-day conferences. I am happy to provide samples as well as references in this regard. I have been shooting for over a decade and my photography services span a wide variety genres. So please feel free to reach out and see if I am the right photographer for you. ***For boudoir photoshoot samples please request a private link by reaching out.*** FAQ's: 1. How much do you typically charge? Rates for most shoots start at about 250/hr. (this rate is only for short/small events, not for weddings or corporate events) and while I try to work with customers on a budget as well as run promotions from time to time my base rate is usually non-negotiable. The base rate for weddings and corporate events is higher. Also, if the location is outside of Hayward by 10 miles (or more) there will be a small travel fee. 2. How long does it take you to deliver images? This depends on how long the shoot is. For a wedding, obviously it's between 4-8 weeks but something like a 1-3 hour shoot it's usually 1-2 weeks. All images delivered are going to be in JPEGs format. I do not give out RAW images. 3. Will I pay extra for edited images? No! In fact, I deliver all images taken with basic editing done. For weddings I do minor retouching and cleaning up. I do not do extensive photoshop work within the rate like replacing the sky or removing people in the background and such but all basic editing is included in the quote. I don't have a max. cap of images as I only discard completely unusable images like the ones that are blurred out or compositionally bad. Otherwise you will receive all images with basic editing done which you can download as JPEGs. *Please keep in mind that I charge an upfront booking fee which is non-refundable.*

My experience with Nick, the photographer, was truly exceptional. Despite booking him at the eleventh hour, he went above and beyond to cater to our requirements. Despite the numerous changes in timing, he remained patient and accommodating throughout the process, never once complaining. The photographs he captured exude a sense of authenticity and naturalness, devoid of excessive filters, which I find most appealing. I wholeheartedly recommend his services. To witness his remarkable work, I encourage you to visit his website and explore the stunning images he has captured.

Details: Birthday party • 25 - 49 guests • Outdoors • Digital or online download

Nick was an excellent photographer. I hired him to be a hidden photographer for my proposal and was nervous as there are a lot of moving parts when it comes to capturing the moment live. Nick was extremely responsive and coordinated to meet at a location where he posed as a nature photographer and was in position to take the picture when the time came.

Details: Proposal photoshoot • Candid • Natural or environmental • Outdoors • One location • Online or digital proofs and prints • My home, venue, etc.

We hired Nick to shoot a religious event in our house, the event was on two different days and Nick was timely and professional throughout the process. Nick was friendly, professional, easy to work with and very accommodating. I had several specific requirements on how the photos should be shot, the contract, what was needed during the ceremony etc. He addressed all of these asks patiently. Also after the first round of edits he addressed all our asks to crop, provide B&W and a few other edits that we requested. During the event he also accommodated not just our asks but also the asks of our guests which was really nice. He also provided all photos via usb in addition to online for a nominal fee which was great.

Details: Religious event • Fewer than 25 guests • Indoors • Digital or online download • Flash drive
