Doug is an awesome Photographer, I hired Doug for our wedding Photography and he worked with us on our Engagement Photos so far; and they turned out great! Everyone just loves them! He was very fun and easy to work with. This was new to my Fiance and I and we aren't very Photo friendly, but Doug got right in there and helped us, told us a joke, got us to laugh and totally made it look natural and our pictures came out great! We cant wait until he does the Photography for our Wedding day, we know they will be awesome, and we know everyone will just adore him! Thanks again Doug... :-) I will definitely hire Doug again for any Photography that i need in the future, and i would definitely recommend him to anybody who needs Photography! Cheers.

Nicholas Jones was our photographer for our wedding at Melody Cafe, San Francisco. We were on a Cable Car ride after the wedding ceremony. Nick was outstanding. Very quick with shots, very patient with the guests, and very inclusive. The bride and groom and the guests were all very happy with the photos provided by Nicholas Jones. We could recommend Big Smiles to all of our friends. Wish we had a video of the wedding event as well. Fortunately, some of our friends took videos. Thank you for creating a very memorable wedding for us, Big Smiles!

I just got back our engagement photos and we are ecstatic! First off Allan was super friendly and awesome to work with, we planned something last minute and he was super cool about our new location choice and he came prepared and researched. My fiance was pretty uncomfortable with the idea of photos because he doesn't like doing this kind of stuff but Allan was super personable and made us laugh which really made the process effortless and fun! Not to mention the end result is amazing. The photos are extremely professional amd clear. We are very happy with the photos and would recommend Allan to anyone. Thanks so much!

Nic came ahead of time on the day of the event. He coordinated well with the photographer. We hired him for the raw footage of the event and highlights video. He was very responsive over email, and provided raw footage of the event within a week. Highlight video contained well selected scenes.

Looking for a wedding photographer on line, my fiancé and I were drawn to the pictures taken by Lorinda Keller, the owner of 831images. Amazingly, she was available on our wedding day. All of her reviews raved her praises. All the reviews were spot on, Lorinda more than exceeded our high expectations. Due to prior changes in our wedding day schedule Lorinda accommodated us by splitting our day into two sessions so that we could get all the photo coverage we wanted but still stay within our budget. This allowed us to have photos of our ceremony and with our guests. We did not have to disappear and leave our guest to get our couple photos. Lorinda made a special trip to return later so that we could do our couple shots after our guests had left and during the ideal sunset lighting. Getting everything we wanted within our limited budget was an exceptional gift. Lorinda also surprised us with returning with printed pictures from the ceremony. She even presented us with a beautifully framed photo capturing our happy moment. Everyone was so shocked that she had a chance to do all of this for us. She was even professionally prompt on an extreme high traffic and no parking day in Carmel. From the second we met Lorinda we felt at ease. Her delightful personality was a joy to be around. My groom and I, were having a small intimate wedding due to our shyness about being the center of attention. We were expecting that having our wedding photos taken was something we would have to suffer through. Boy were we wrong. After two hours of taking photos on the beach we could not stop talking about how much fun we had with Lorinda. She made the experience an unexpectedly enjoyable time that we will always treasure. Lorinda had an amazing ability to give her subjects directions while still keeping a light hearted vibe to achieve the premium result. Not only did Lorinda put us and our guests at ease but she also had great energy around our dogs. Our two Belgian Malinois are very suspicious of new people, especially if they are holding objects like a camera. In order to have them part of our ceremony we thought we would have to put up with lots of barking. Lorinda was so terrific with our dogs that they never barked at her. She was also very gracious about maneuvering around the guest dogs in attendance. She went above and beyond in getting special shots with the dogs that lived at the venue for a special gift for us to give the home owners. It takes an exceptional talent for a stranger to put dogs at ease in order to take their photo. We highly recommend Lorinda for shots of your furry friends, in addition to all your professional photo needs. If you want to have fun while getting direction so you get the most flattering, unique and artistic photos then call Lorinda.

Kavya could not have done a better job with our engagement photos! She was prompt to reply and arrange a rather quick appointment with us as we were on a deadline. She was friendly and professional throughout the shoot, providing the right amount of suggestions/tips to get the perfect shots without being overbearing. She is also quite adventurous, climbing down rocks with camera in hand to get to a beach in order to get the perfect shot! I ended up with so many great pictures that she sent within 2 days after the shoot. I would definitely recommended her for all your photography needs.

And Forever More was an absolute pleasure to work with! Paulina and Eric made my husband and I feel so comfortable in front of the camera during our engagement shoot and on our wedding day. The final photos are STUNNING. They went above and beyond to provide us with 4x6 prints of every single photo in both color and black and white, as well as a thumb drive of all the files, AND a few blown up prints of their favorite shots, AND an album of more larger prints! Seriously, who does that?? They even shot our rehearsal dinner for us, and it was so amazing to have candid shots of that very intimate, special night with our closest family and friends. We could not be happier with what we received from And Forever More. They are both incredibly sweet and easy to work with, and will work with any ideas and suggestions you send their way. On the wedding day, we hardly noticed them around, but they captured every moment. We received our photos in a timely manner, and were blown away at the quality of shots. All in all, if you choose And Forever More for any photography needs, you won't be disappointed! Love you Paulina and Eric!! <33

Brook Todd takes the absolute best photos. He not only can capture a headshot in 10 minutes that is flawless, but his event photography is second to none. He has also taken some product photos for marketing materials for us. He is professional, has a consistent product every time, and I truly consider him the be the best photographer I have ever worked with. I highly recommend Brook!

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Amanda and having her take some pictures of me. I typically do not like having my picture taken, but she created an environment in which I felt comfortable and relaxed. She has a very pleasant personality and the quality of her photography left me feeling extremely satisfied with the overall experience.

Lynna is a dedicated and generous photographer. Her presence is kind, caring, thoughtful, and compassionate. She has a great attention to detail while still maintaining an air of humor, and is amazing at keeping things fun and creative. My whole family loves her, and all our family portraits are done by her. Lynna travels to us, and is always ready to try new concepts and locations. We are so grateful and feel so fortunate to have her share her abilities to capture every essence of our personalities and relationships.

Monique is everything my fiancé and I looked for to take our engagement photos. Monique was flexible, organized, detail-oreientated and a joy to work with. Monique has a keen eye and the natural ability to create a memory in every environment. We chose the location of a meadow with yellow flowers and the pictures came out magical and unique.

Wow! We are still over the moon with what a wonderful job Catie did for our engagement shoot. My fiancé and I have never been thrilled about having our photos taken and quite honestly we were nervous to have our engagement photos done. As soon we began taking photos all those nerves went away. Catie did a wonderful job getting us to relax, laugh and be ourselves. Aside from all the fun we had during the shoot, the pictures turned out amazing! I am still receiving complements left and right from all our friends and family about how wonderful the pictures came out. My favorite comments have been our engagement photos “radiate love” and “captures the love we have for each other”. Catie was on top of everything, she was answering all my questions before the shoot, directed us to capture the best pictures and she got us the finished photos in under a week! Because of our wonderful experience, we are having Catie shoot our wedding Fall 2019.

Jim is passionate about photography and very good at what he does. He is always looking for ways to perfect his art form. He loves to be around people and interact with different individuals in a variety of settings. He has worked with families, teens, and kids outside of taking photography which allows him to be able to grab the attention of a kid or teen in order to capture them at their best.

Wayne was great! He met us on a Saturday. Gave us a timeline and finished even before his estimate. We are very happy we had him restore this very old family photograph from the 1920's that was damaged. Definitely recommend!

I used Thumbtack for the first time to hire a photographer for my daughter's 1st birthday. I am happy with my decision after I got SSS photos. He is very responsive and arrived early at the venue to take some photos before we go there. We are happy with whatever photos he has taken at the event. He is flexible in timings and you can expect prompt response for any queries regarding the photos. Thanks Sasi for the awesome photos. These are the memories we cherish life time.

Working with Jeremey was excellent for both our engagement shoot and wedding day photos. He was always very professional and very responsive in communicating with us. The quality of his work was also excellent and he was able to get back our photos in a very timely manner. I would highly suggest working with Jeremey from Still Music.
