Brian is an outstanding photographer! We are so pleased with the work he did for our intimate wedding of 35 people. He met us ahead of time, at our rehearsal, and listened carefully to our needs and got to know all of family. On the wedding day, he took over 3000 images during the 4.5 hours of our contract. His ability to capture the personalities, the light and the setting is outstanding--he is a true artist! He captured details no one else saw. He has a calm demeanor and is just a pleasure to work with. We are delighted with the results!

Lawrence did a fantastic job on my wedding photography and video. His stills and video are all beautiful and very creative. Everyone who's seen our wedding photos want to hire him for their next event! In addition to having a great eye and skills, he was also very professional, friendly and accommodating. He even drove us to the Golden Gate Bridge for pics after the wedding and then to our wedding dinner! I could not recommend Lawrence more highly. Great photographer and great guy!

Pastor John was an excellent choice for our wedding. All of the guests asked us how we came to find him. They loved his humor and how he even engaged the guests in the ceremony. He was very personable and he worked with us to create a unique ceremony. He was very punctual to every one of our meetings. On the wedding day, he was a full hour early, and was really helpful in making me relax before the wedding. At the rehearsal, he made sure everyone was very clear on how the ceremony was supposed to run, setting little cues for everyone involved. This helped calm our nerves before the day even began. Many of the guests said that the ceremony was the best ceremony they had ever attended. We would highly recommend Pastor John for a wedding officiant. Thank you again Pastor John, for making our wedding day one to remember!

Finding wedding photography and videography was so hard and not to mention expensive. A friend told me about thumbtack, so I figured I'll give it a try and am sure glad I did. Shelia was so helpful and very informative about everything. She is so professional at all times . I told her my budget and she stuck rite to it and threw in some extra things for me. She offers beautiful engagement photos which turned out beautiful. We went to the Japanese Tea Garden in Harward , CA, and it was absloutely beautiful. On the day Of our wedding Shelia and Pam Were there early. They got pictures of the wedding set up, tables , flowers, cake, etc.. Shelia got pictures of everything I asked for. From the beginning to the end. And the most important she got some great shots of all the kids before they got all dirty it was beautiful. After the wedding Shelia got back to me in a week with all the pictures we had to pick threw, once we made our choices she put them in a beautiful album and sent them rite out us. I would recommend Shelia services to anyone looking for a professional and hard working photographer who takes pride in her work and making sure your needs are met on your special day. Thanks Shelia It turly was a pleasure! Sincerely Mr. & Mrs. De'Monta & Yolanda Hichks

DJ Stallion was very easy to work with. From the moment I put in a request on thumbtack, he was the only Dj to contact us within a week. HE in fact called me within half an hour. I explained that our wedding ceremony and reception were at two different sites, which I believed would be a stumbling block, but without hesitation agreed, and was negotiable on price based on our budget. He was very responsive to all inquiries we had, and was communicative with us even on the wedding day. He provides a blank list that you pick your music from, ( a collection of thousands) so that you know what he is going to play at certain times. He listened to our every wish, not varying from the music genres that we listed out for idle time, and lit the place up for the main dancing portion of the night, providing strobes in the evening, which laid a great backdrop for everyone against the trees. The ceremony site was pretty minimalistic with a couple of speakers, a microphone to say our vows, and an amp lead for the guitarist playing songs as we walked down the aisle. Despite some last minute logistical changes to the way the ceremony was going to be run, he rolled with the punches and took it all in his stride. On the way out, he hit the nail on the head with some Hall and Oates to mark the ceremony completion. As a former Wild 94.9 Dj, he brings expertise, class, and an open mind to help you tailor your wedding day to your specific needs.

Out of all our wedding vendors, Rev. Saundra was the one we enjoyed working with the most. She is so quick to respond to emails and was really helpful in getting our wedding license questions answered. We are not a religious couple and weren't sure of the rituals to include in our ceremony so Saundra provided us with a bunch of options. We decided on doing a rose ceremony for our mothers and she suggested to keep it a surprise until the actual ceremony. Words simply cannot describe the beautiful ceremony Rev. Saundra administered on our wedding day. Her words were poetic and touching and she highlighted a lot of special details about our relationship which came from a questionnaire she sent us months before. The rose ceremony was one of our favorite parts -- our mothers were so deeply moved. Needless to say a lot of laughter and happy tears were shared during our ceremony. Our guests raved about the intimacy and meaning the ceremony brought to the table. Saundra was able to really make it unique and all about us.

Pros: Rob was the DJ at wedding and he was absolutely amazing!! He was very patient to work with me when I had a bevy of questions/concerns. In addition, he went above and beyond his duties (in which I paid him for). Highlights include: 1. He helped me make my slideshow video for the father-daughter dance. Everyone LOVED it. It had to be coordinated with the song and his transitions were brilliant. His hard work made a special moment even more special and allowed me to a video montage that I will always cherish. He even gave me a copy of the ppt with the music embedded as a keepsake. We had rented a projector and screen from him and he was able to set it up and take it down in 10 minutes. He was very efficient! 2. Our wedding was unique in that we had A LOT of kids present (45% of the wedding was under 15). He did a laser show with animals that kept the little ones entertained so that their parents could eat during the dinner. He made games to keep the older kids (even some adults) entertained. We got rave reviews from the guests regarding his light show. 3. His ability to be flexible. We decided to move our timeline up and he was able to continue the program seamlessly. We also made changes to the grand entrance at the last minute and he did it without a hitch. 4. Professionalism. He was very early and set up in a timely manner. Everything was ready to go once the guests got there. He was amenable to our situation. We had guests outside the patio area during cocktail hour so he set up speakers outside. He was very engaging with the wedding guests and made them feel at ease. 5. I had asked him to introduce our families. He called me on the phone in order to ensure that he got the pronounciation of the names correctly. We spoke for ~45 minutes on the phone to ensure that we were both on the same page as to what I wanted/needed. 6. Equipment: Rob has state-of-the art equipment. His lighting is gorgeous and the colors are vivid. A lot of people have cheap uplighting which causes lines and problems for videographers (my videographer has experienced this). Thus, with Rob's equipment you won't have to worry about the laser lights affecting your filming. 7. He was extremely prompt in returning messages!! That in itself is a huge plus. Semi-con: I did get negative feedback from the videographer and photographer stating that Rob was not amenable to their requests. Specifically, Rob was shining purple lighting on us (which was very pretty in person) but both the videographer and photographer said it was weird. They asked him to turn it to white and he refused so they had to ask me. Honestly, this is fine because technically, I am his boss as I am the one who hired him. He wants to make sure I am aware of why the lights are bright (instead of the warm, cozy ambiance). That is fine. His positive attributes more than make up for this incident. I would definitely recommend him to others and will do so if asked!!

Tuese did a great job as the DJ for my wedding reception dinner! He was recommended by my friend, who also had Tuese DJ her wedding. I'm so thankful for the recommendation, because I'm not sure I would have found him otherwise! My husband and I aren't really big on dancing, and neither are our families, so I didn't have too many expectations for dancing that night, but the dance floor was actually packed! Tuese picked songs that all our guests loved, and we're still getting compliments on our wedding music. I'm particularly thankful because I really didn't give very much guidance as to what kind of music I was expecting (maybe gave him about 5-10 examples of songs I enjoy) and he was able to pick up on the general type of music I liked. After the wedding, Tuese also sent us a video of clips that he'd recorded of the dance floor. It was such a nice surprise and gesture, and an extra step that we loved. It's extra special to be able to look back on those clips because you don't realize that on your own wedding day, there's so much going on that you miss a lot of the action at times. We'll treasure those video clips forever! Tuese also did us a huge favor and saved us from potential ceremony headaches. We only booked him for the reception, but 2 days before the wedding, we'd gone to the church to do a sound check and found out their sound system had some issues and couldn't play the music as we were expecting. In a frenzy, we called Tuese to see if he could run sound for our ceremony as well, but he was understandably already busy during those hours. He went out of his way to reach out to his contacts to see if any of them were available to help us out, and through him, we were able to find a DJ to help us play the ceremony music. Seriously cannot thank him enough for that!! Rest assured, you can count on Tuese to make your event fun, memorable, and full of great music. 10/10 would recommend!

We worked with Eric for our 12/9/2017 wedding at the Historic 16th Street Train Station in Oakland. Eric was incredibly excited to work with us, given the amazing venue, and we were excited to have him capture our special day. Eric was responsive, creative, and kind throughout the process. He captured dozens of high-quality shots of our day. We are pleased with him and the services he provided. Highly recommend! :)

I reached out to Hopp Productions when I was planning my wedding because I was looking for a very specific type of video. After talking to Brandon, he confirmed that he could accommodate all specific details I had hoped for my video. Brandon traveled to my wedding and 100% exceeded my expectations. He was able to get the close up footage that I was wishing for, and was also able to capture fun downtime with my wedding party. Overall, this video is worth it's weight in gold. We, have watched our video countless times since receiving it. I would recommend Brandon to anyone I know wishing for top quality video. We are very grateful for this gift we will cherish it forever.

Steve Fogel was the main photographer at my wedding. He was timely and interested in the style of photos I was looking for. He was focused on getting shots with great framing and flattering lighting. Steve was easy to work with and really wanted to capture the moment. I have enjoyed looking back on the photos over and over. Thank you.

Kathleen was absolutely AMAZING!! She has a calming presence that made me feel at eaze on my wedding day. She was so helpful and easy going. The turnaround time on my wedding photos was also very quick, while we were waiting she provided little sneak peaks of some her her favorite shots. This was nice so we could share some photos with family and friends. She caught so many special moments. The quality and composition of her photos is exceptional. I highly recommend Kathleen and hope to work with her again on other photoshoots in the future. Thank you so much Kathleen it was SUCH a pleasure working with you!!!

We were so pleased hiring Janice and Al! They showed up at our wedding on time and set up without issue, they were so professional and created a beautiful photo strip template for us. They even provided us with a flash drive of all the photos at the end of the night! We were so excited to look through them all and send them out to friends who didn't get copies. Hire Janice and Al, you won't regret it!
