First and foremost, I love what I do. I feel privileged to be able to make art every day and to share it with my clients. I'm a licensed wedding and travel photographer working with various magazines. Recently awarded from Thumbtack and the Bay Area community the Top 10, Best of 2015 Freelance Photographers Award at slot #2. My style of photography is journalistic for weddings, I shoot in a very natural way and also shoot traditional wedding photos. I find that it's best to let people be themselves -- laughing, giggling and enjoying each other. Those "candid" shots end up being the best ones because they catch the essence of what was really happening at that very moment. That is the body of my photo work you are looking at, that is how I made those shots look that particular way. I always give a mix of traditional posed and candid photos back. When I'm not shooting weddings or landscapes for magazines, you will also find me available for corporate events, commercial, food photography, products, couple portraits, band portraits and anything else you can think of that requires photography. I will travel anywhere and love to meet new people. With that said, I have had numerous clients fly me out to other states for their weddings. I'm in California, and you are in New York? Of course, I can work for you. It would be an honor. I give a mix of wedding photos in return -- meaning, black and white and color. It all depends on what works with the lighting in photography. If you prefer no black-and-white photos, then please let me know before everything is set in stone -- meaning, "before the engagement shoot, before your wedding, when we first talk planning, before everything." Remember, it is your day; I'm there to capture "your day" and satisfy your needs. Let me tell your story through my lens. Rates: please contact me. Every event slightly differs from one another (All rates include travel costs, editing and CD or e-mailed high-res photos.). FILM: I am also offering film packages alongside my digital work. Not a fan of those fake orange/yellow software filters? And need a photographer that shoots digital and film naturally? Without the fake over-brushed Photoshop look? Contact me. My one piece of advice: do not hire someone because the "rate is cheaper." It's your wedding, your one day -- your most special day. Hire someone based on the quality of the work/art. Be sure to look at my official website at the link below. "The best teacher is experience and not through someone's distorted point of view!" -- Jack Kerouac My latest work can be found in Brides Magazine, National Geographic Kids Magazine, Lonely Planet Traveler UK Magazine, Turkish Airlines (Skylife Magazine) and N-Photo Nikon Deutschland Magazine. On the Pixoto Photo website, I was awarded/ranked the #14 wedding photographer of 2014 out of thousands of photographers from around the world.

Cindy photographed our large extended family on Christmas day. She arrived early, was extremely professional while being laid-back, and worked well with all the members of the family, including a cantankerous uncle, tantrum prone toddler, and excitable dog. We received links to the photos the next day, and the portraits and candids are great.

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.

I highly recommend Patrick Power! I needed a professional portrait for a legal job application, and I hadn't had one taken in over 20 years. I wanted it to be professional, but also unique. I wasn't sure how to find a photographer, so I just put out a bid on thumbtack. Patrick responded very quickly and with a very reasonable price. I had resigned myself to just getting a studio portrait with a neutral background, but Patrick had the idea of meeting at City Hall to take the photo. I was very nervous and self-conscious about the process. I don't like having my picture taken and I am not very photogenic. It helped that City Hall was full of other photographers taking pictures of brides, grooms, and other people like me, so I didn't really stand out. I had a problem and ended up being pretty late to our meeting, but Patrick was very nice about it. I was sweating like crazy in my suit, but he did a good job of putting me at ease and letting me rest and cool down for a little bit white while he staked out spots to take the photo. He talked with me casually about what I was looking for in the photo, but we also made small talk about our lives and work, so that soon I felt very comfortable with him. As a result, I looked very natural in the photo. Patrick took a lot of shots, and several of them were quite good. I needed the work done on very short notice, including a print. I made the bid on a Sunday, we did the photo shoot on Monday, and I had the print by Tuesday morning. I love the photo, and my family and friends do too. Everyone agreed that not just my appearance, but also my personality comes through in the photo. I will definitely call Patrick again if I need another photo taken in the future!

My name is Genevieve Jerome. Yes, my name is French, but I'm Italian. Kind of neat, isn't it? The relationship between a photographer and the client is truly a beautiful one. I take photos of you and your loved ones that hopefully you'll love and adore, and you share those photos with your friends and family that hopefully they'll love and adore. See? Isn't it such a beautiful thing? My love and passion for Photography started at a very young age when I got my tiny little hands on my Grandfathers camera. Once I realized that the camera could capture moments and make those moments permanent, I fell in love with photography. When I'm not shooting weddings, you can usually find me drinking coffee, obsessing over design ideas on Pinterest, hiking with me dogs, building new backdrops for food photoshoots, and taking day-cations with my amazing husband. A fun fact about me: I was recently featured in FITNESS Magazine because I lost 155-pounds and went from a size 22 to a size 6. I lift weights, eat clean, and leading a healthy lifestyle is a huge part of who I am. Genevieve is a portrait and wedding photographer out of the Sacramento and Bay Areas. Genevieve will travel for weddings, events, and family portraits. Genevieve has been a professional photographer for the last four years, and has been studying photography for over fifteen years. If you choose me to photograph your wedding or event, I will work with you as much as possible to give you everything you want from a photographer.
