Dayvid was great to work with for my daughter's quinceañera . I researched a lot of photographers and he is the only one that made me feel comfortable enough to book without meeting him since I live out of state. He showed up on time was very easy to talk to and gave me a great product. I would definitely use him for my other daughter if he is still around.

We hired Will to shoot two large group photos for a corporate training and deliver prints by the next business day and he completed the job seamlessly and professionally. He was easy to get in touch with and very reliable. I coordinated this training in 15 different markets with 15 different photographers, and Will was one of our favorites! I would recommend Will for any photography job in the area!

I can't say enough about Ivan! He captured my son and daughter-in-laws wedding and reception better then we could have imagined! After receiving the photos, we all gathered and watched a slide show and re-lived all of the beautiful and fun moments, as well as moments some of us missed, but Ivan captured! He is an incredible photographer and a very professional and kind man! I look forward to using him again in the future, and I highly recommend both his photography excellence as well as his reasonable fee's!

Brad (and Thumbtack) were phenomenal! At nearly the last minute I decided a professional photographer was in order for my daughter's Sweet 16 party. Somehow while searching the internet I found Thumbtack and after a few tries, found Brad. I provided no direction beyond the location and time of the party. He showed up as promised and did an incredible job. My daughter and I could not be happier with the photos. Thanks Brad!!

Nona Photography did the maternity photo-shoot for us and we had a wonderful experience. She is a professional photographer and it is easily noticeable with the ideas that she brought and the photos she delivered. I would definitely recommend Nona Photography for any photo-shoot you plan.

I needed new work headshots and a family photo with my 3 dogs. This was my first time using Thumbtack and I received bids from 5 local photographers. I decided to to with John Glover because of the precision and great attention to detail I noticed in his sample photos. John's photos came out nothing short of amazing, he even captured all my dogs at attention at once. My headshots came out better than any headshots I've ever taken. Highly recommend using him.

Kelli was great! She offered us advise on the best time of day to have our beach wedding, and arrived early on the day. We were so impressed with her energy and insight in finding the perfect places for us to pose. She also did a lot of candid shots. Kelli is very personable and very knowledgeable about lighting. Working with her was very easy, we were able to relax and enjoy the experience. The pics we have seen are awesome, and I know the rest will be as well! I highly recommend Kelli to anyone looking for a professional photographer.

This was our first time working with a professional photographer. Danielle was amazing from the very beginning. She offered creative ideas and took the time to lay every detail out for us. Our engagement shoot turned out amazing. Her turn around time is great. She doesn't make you wait forever. We are looking forward to getting our wedding photos back soon!

Susan is an amazing photographer.  The pictures look like they belong in the hospitals (labor and delivery wing) and in magazines. I was so happy when she took time with the baby and didn't rush. She was so loving and understanding and we even stopped between the shoot to feed baby. When baby was crying, she encouraged me to stop and pick her up to calm her and then we would start again whereas at other studios I felt rushed and like I was inconveniencing them. She has an amazing imagination and she was relentless to find the perfect shot for the baby. When the baby was too fussy she figured out a way to take the shots of her ON ME!! You can't even tell I was holding her. In my opinion, that is truly amazing! You could really tell this is a talent and true passion of Susan's. The pictures came out so amazing and I would definetly use her again for any of our photographic needs.

Reviews Hugh Foster, Professional Photographer. Special Event Photographer The 1st b day is very important to Koreans. I'm going to have to update this post later because there are so many excellent points I'd like to make about Hugh Foster. He is a premier photographer who is extremely talented and versatile. His forte is portraiture and we hired him to make our daughter's first birthday party extra special. Photos are one of the best ways to memorialize those special moments. Memories fade and years from now, my daughter who won't remember her actual birthday, will be able to look back and be reminded of how very special she is to us. Hugh captured moments that only a patient and experienced photographer knowledgeable in the craft is able. We believe in health and fitness and so does Hugh. He has a positive energy, a professional attitude, and his demeanor is friendly. My guests and their many children were impressed with the way he interacted with everyone. He is PATIENT. Hugh waited for the right shots and knew when to take the picture. He snapped away and was able to walk away with several shots more than expected. He also captured moments of our friends’ children that I am going to have printed on high grade photo paper from a photo lab and send to them. These photos are frame worthy and artistic as far as the talented eye goes. He is PUNCTUAL. Hugh was right on time. Hugh arrived early for the event, scoped it out and did the same for our second venue. After the party we went to the Great Park with the big orange balloon and hangar and carousel. We had a blast taking photos. His set up and professional lighting made shots in difficult weather come out perfectly. He is PROFESSIONAL. The turnaround time for our photos was prompt and ahead of schedule. After the event, a professional has to go over the multitude of shots, and retouch them or use photoshop to clean up shots, crop, etc. Hugh knows how to efficiently work through to make sure it’s done. He had all the right EQUIPMENT. Hugh brought long and short lenses, two cameras, flash and lighting equipment, and a other professional equipment needed to get the shot. For those who know what it means to invest money in a photographer know that lighting is everything. Hugh knows what to do in bright sunshine, in the shade, and even knows how to make shadows work for the composition of the photo. I’m going to hire him again for sure. I also want to go to him for head shots. If Hugh has responded to your job post, then you need to book him immediately or you may miss out on a chance to hire him. He’s the One!

Rachel is the BEST photographer to work with in every way. She worked around our busy schedules, she knows the best locations and poses, she catered to our personal preferences. She printed out, studied, and brought my entire "Wedding Photos Inspiration" Pinterest board and was sure to get every pose we dreamed of! She is kind and fun to be with. She was flexible when plans got changed. By far the best quality photos; worth every penny; BEST bang for your buck. I am so glad we found Rachel. If we did our formals over again, I'd choose her in a heart beat. You'd be silly to go to anyone else.

Joe was a terrific photographer. I had to postpone the photos 3 times due to weather, and he was very patient and made himself available throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for drone photography and we will be hiring him again for future projects.

Tom was such a pleasant person to work with. He was on time, he took his time with the pictures and video, he did an excellent job with editing the pictures and they all looked fantastic. He did much more than what he was supposed to do for this shooting. He provided the final product in less than a day. I am just so excited that I was able to work with him and I think I found my to go photographer for all my real estate listings. Thank you Tom!

Initially was afraid of the professionalism of the photographers, we never met with them in person. We communicated all by emails, text and phone calls. Once they showed up they were great, good team work! Such a great experience. Antonio was such a great leader and he knows his stuff. It was amazing!! We are excited and can not wait to see our wedding pictures and videos. They were so great even when we booked 1 month in advance for photographer and 1 week in advance for videography. There is not enough stars to show how satisfied we are with them.

This is a photographer I have worked with previously and when I saw her send me a quote I was eager to work with her again. Always a beautiful work product and I enjoy her professionalism.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
