Allan is of the best photographers I have ever worked with. His punctuality, friendly demeanor, faithfulness, and passion for capturing memories that will last a lifetime are his best qualities in business. He has all the right equipment, talent, and skill, and comes at a great price! I used him for my graduation photos and now use one of his photos for my linked in profile picture. He's an awesome guy and I'm really glad I hired him!

I hired Jason to photograph a 50th wedding anniversary party and the process couldn’t have been easier. Jason was quick to send a quote/samples of his work and answer any questions I had. He showed up on time and was very professional. The party was Sunday afternoon and by Wednesday morning I had access to all the photos he took. Once I finish going through them and let him know which we choose he will do any touch-up necessary and get them back to me. His pricing was very reasonable, the pictures look great, and his service professional. I wasn’t sure if we should hire a photographer but am so glad we did; the photos will provide a wonderful memory of a wonderful celebration Thank you Jason!

We had a wonderful experience working with Hok for our engagement photos, rehearsal dinner/ Sangeet/ Mehendi Raat photos, and wedding photos. From the first time we met Hok, we felt very comfortable with him, and he always made us feel comfortable in front of the camera (which is hard since we don't like being photographed generally!). His years of experience show and he has shot all over the Bay Area- he gave us suggestions for locations for our Sangeet and ideas for videographers, going above and beyond his photographer duties. We appreciated how he shot the diversity of our two families and traditions. His photographs are so incredibly beautiful, whether capturing a lehenga/sari or a white wedding dress, an individual portrait or a group dancing. He finds a great balance of getting great posed shots that look still look natural and candid shots that capture everyone's individuality. Our guests keep complementing us on our photographer, and we recommend him to all our friends and family. We will definitely use Hok again in the future and highly recommend him to anyone on Thumbtack looking for a talented, experienced, and creative photographer.

STOP reading this review and hire Paulina immediately! She is so professional, responsive, punctual, and technically great that it is hard to believe that she could be so warm, personable, and reassuring too! From the moment we met Paulina, we knew we were going to hire her. Her bubbly personality and enthusiasm made us even more excited for our own event. On the day of our wedding, she was perfectly on time and directed us through a beautiful and fun "first look." Sometimes it feels awkward to have a photographer taking pictures through an event, but Paulina integrated so well into the crowd that everyone thought that she was one of our friends...at the end of the evening no one wanted her to go! I'm sure that there are many good photographers out there for hire, but if you want someone truly special, who will be part of your team, and make your special day even more special, then look no further. She is truly one of a kind. Thank you Paulina!!!

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.

I am so grateful to have had Lynna as my “life” photographer for the past couple years. She started out doing mini-sessions for us for our yearly holiday card, and it quickly evolved into our daughter’s birthday parties, maternity and family photoshoots as well. We have used her to help us document every major milestone that we have been embarking as a family. She is always so professional, open to ideas, scouts out locations, and is great with kids. She makes you feel comfortable when shooting and captures the moment quickly. She is a pleasure to work with and her rates are reasonable as well for the quality and quantity of work that she provides. We always come away with plenty of images to use and print. I highly recommend her and feel very fortunate to have used her over the years and will continue to do so.

Gregory was very helpful finding the time to be flexible with our schedule along with locating great locations to do our family session. We traveled from Iowa to Santa Cruz, Ca for our family vacation and wanted it to be memorable since all of our children and grand children were together along with celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. Gregory took many beautiful photos along with some candid moments of the grandchildren. We look forward to having Gregory as our photographer again when we visit Santa Cruz again .

Carolyn is not only an amazing photographer but she is a beautiful person inside and out! We have had the pleasure of having her take our family pictures four times now, and we've just scheduled our fifth photo shoot for when our daughter turns one. Our first shoot with her was just after our son turned one. It was for our first ever family pictures and they exceeded our expectations. We then had Carolyn take our maternity shoot when I was pregnant with our daughter, and then followed that with a newborn session. She captured the beauty and love of those precious moments in our life. The most recent session with her was our first shoot as a family of four. Somehow, even with our 2 year old son running around screaming, she managed to take some of her best pictures yet! It was one of the most memorable sessions. We walked around the park talking about family, laughing about stories of our little ones, and meanwhile taking breath taking pictures that were a true representation of our family's love and joy. I honestly can't say enough wonderful things about Carolyn and the job she does. She is professional, detailed in her work, very attentive, and has a fantastic eye. Her love of photography and for her clients comes through in every image she takes. I would highly recommend Carolyn to anyone looking for the BEST photographer in the Bay Area!

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.
