Will was just fabulous!!! He set up early, made super cute photo stripes that color coordinated to my daughter's party, was super friendly and helpful to all who attended the party. Very nice and personable. Would definately use again and recommend to everyone.
Very knowledgeable and professional. Best on Thumbtack for portraits.
Very quick job for a last-minute request. Very accommodating! Mic did a great job with our family portrait photo shoot. She was open to take all of our creative shots and locations. She was very accommodating with our somewhat crazy but fun family and location changes from the studio to outdoors in the park, incorporating props, and capturing natural moments. Without a doubt has a passion for photography and takes pride in her work. It was also easy to view our pictures on Pixieset and choose our favorites after the shoot. We happily recommend Michelle to anyone who wants a photographer who is open to exploring creative ideas and capturing spontaneity.
Jess is hands down the sweetest photographer I have ever met. She really understood what I was looking for when it came to my engagement photos. She took amazing candid photos, as well as portrait photos that I will forever cherish. Thank you Jess for the hardwork and effort you put in!!! Highly highly highly recommend!!!!!!
Felipe took family photos of us at the beach. His style is creative, unique, natural and fun! We are thrilled with our family portraits and will treasure them for years to come. I highly recommend Osorio Photos to those seeking beautiful portraits for any occasion!
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!!
Wow! Lydia was a delight to work with. She was awesome start to finish; she answered all of my pre-wedding shoot questions (the level of communication throughout the entire process - before, after, and during - was excellent), gave us her full attention the day of and really helped direct our small wedding group since we are all pretty camera shy...and the photographs she delivered were beautiful! There photos were vivid, and stunning, there were some cool black and white ones, and a good blend of artistic and candid shots and I felt like she captured the 'real us'. It was so easy to connect with her, which is so important in getting good photos. And - just trust her - there were several times where I thought to myself, "you want me to do what?!" - and then when I saw the final result, those were some of my favorite shots!
Very clear high quality photos! 1,2,3 say cheese! SNAP! and your photo will be printed. Choose color or black and white! This is the BEST photo booth I have ever used! Great for parties, weddings, baby showers and MUCH more! You will love this photo booth!
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!
Brandon did my black and whites on 1/20/15. The photoshoot was in chino. He was extremely professional he made me feel very comfortable. Brandon is a amazing photographer I would love to do more work with him. I highly recomend booking him for both personal and professional photo shoots
I have hired Sam for several projects, ranging from artistic self portraits to special event photography. He is talented and professional and has a great turn around time.
Naomi White is an extraordinary photographer! She is very professional, has a great, artistically talented eye, is fun with a calming demeanor, and personable. My husband and I felt completely at ease with her clicking away pictures of our family. Both of us are somewhat shy/nervous about being in front of a camera, but her professionalism and personality made it easy to be subjects with her as the observer. We were over the moon with how wonderfully natural and special Mrs. White's photographs came out. They captured the magic of our daughter, the day, and our little family. Everyone I have shared her photos of us with just loves them. She has great attention to detail, and highlighted small, intimate moments between my daughter and my husband and me that look postcard worthy! We just loved working with her and the results of our session. If 5 out of 5 stars is the best, she's a 10!!
Successfully scanned over 200 35mm black and white photo negatives that were 30 years old, and had not been stored under the best conditions. Thank you for saving my memories. I rate this service excellent.
i got married on a budget but, my wife & i were firm on one thing: we wanted Don Lewis to document the event. Don worked w/ us on the price & arrived early. he blended in w/ the party & delivered some of the most heart warming images of our families and friends having a great time. the prints were stunning, Don printed them himself. all shot on film - black & white, as we requested. thank you for capturing our special day w/ such skilled finesse.
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!
Eric is a pleasure to work with. He is charming, professional and esthetically talented all in equal measure. He created a gorgeous black & white portrait of me seated with my 6 month old son that is a family treasure. His work is stunning and timeless. I highly recommend Eric!
Rory is an extremely warm person and a master of portrait and fine art photography. His style gives each image impressive life and dimension. He plans his lighting with careful intention. I've seen him create extremely complex mixed media film projects involving custom made miniature sets that become pictures, taken of pictures, taken of pictures. All with an organic and creative end goal in mind. I've also seen him build large grip setups of 12x12 diffusion and black solids to harness and shape natural light. From highly involved projects to beautifully simple portraits, Rory always proceeds with a strong and confident creative vision. And he's always getting his hands dirty in the process; rigging, gripping, and lighting. More recently he's been expanding his skills into grip & lighting for film, which based on his experience is clearly a natural transition. Rory is a gifted artist and a welcoming soul. I can't recommend him enough.
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.
Kiley is friendly and makes the picture taking process easy, relaxed, and fun. She helped us capture some family photos and baby bump shots recently. She recommended a beautiful location outdoors with great natural lighting. The pictures turned out amazing! She played with lighting and black and white and all came out excellent. She is very professional and kept us posted during the editing process which took under a week! I will definitely request her for future shoots and recommend her to anyone looking for reliable customer service and quality pictures to capture family milestones. But check out her portfolio clearly her talent far exceeds family shoots she also does marketing, commercial and entertainment shoots! Thanks again Kiley!
Ken shot our wedding on May 17, 2014. The pictures are amazing! He gave me a disc with almost 600 pictures that aren't protected so that I can do with them what I like and print from the disc to different type materials like canvas, rock, stone, etc. I told him that I want some traditional color photos but that I love sepia tones, black and white and more artistic type photos. OMG did he do great with this! There is even a shot of my new husband and I's hand doing the rings that I have no idea how he got as I didn't even see him and it is a serious close up. His prices are phenomenal. I would HIGHLY recommend using Ken as a photographer for your events.. Thank You again Ken.. Love, Billie and Aaron
