About

Michael was so incredible to work with! He was very patient even though I was 45 minutes late to our shoot due to various bridal delays. This shortened our available time for our portrait session but Michael used the time he had to get as many amazing shots of me and my husband as possible. Furthermore, he made us feel incredibly comfortable even though both of us aren't used to being in front of the camera. It was a pleasure working with Michael and I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a really cool, affordable photographer =)

About

Brian shot our baby shower and did a wonderful job. We hosted the event in the back room of a restaurant which ended up being pretty tight but Brian managed to navigate the space and capture some really wonderful candid photos of our guests. He also took photos of my wife, dog and me at our home which we were also pleased with. I have used much more expensive photographers in the past and I would say that Brian's work stacked up well against any of them.

About

Thank you Cindy for fantastic wedding photos! My favorite part about working with Cindy is that she is professional. For me, this means several things: she was always timely with email responses throughout the process, she was prompt and ready on the day of, and her turn around time for the photos was super short! But the ultimate reason that Cindy is an amazing professional is that she is invisible! I have heard plenty of horror stories of photographers that drag the bride and groom away from the fun and make the occasion all about the pictures. Cindy was great at taking very little of our time to do couples shots. We were able to be completely present in the moment at all our events and Cindy captured them without us even knowing she was there. We have some excellent candids of friends and family as well as posed shots of the two of us. She stayed close at the beginning of the reception so that I could ask her for specific shots but she also wandered around and got a great picture of almost all 150 people at the event :) We are very happy with the pictures and the experience!

About

Doug did our wedding at SF City Hall and we were very pleased with his services. He was much more affordable than most other photographers we considered and was very pleasant to work with. He showed up to the location a couple hours before we did just to prepare and make sure he knew all the best places to shoot. When we arrived he took pictures as we stepped out of the limo and then through the entire affair. We think the photos turned out great. He also charged one fee for the whole shoot, which was as low as others charged hourly. Overall very friendly, well prepared and provided professional services at an unbeatable price.

Super diligent, on-time and friendly! By far the best and most professional photographer I have dealt with in a long time. Boaz took his time and produced acceptional photos of 5 of our new homes for sale in Danville. I will, and already have, recommended him. Thanks again Boaz!

About

I highly recommend Patrick Power! I needed a professional portrait for a legal job application, and I hadn't had one taken in over 20 years. I wanted it to be professional, but also unique. I wasn't sure how to find a photographer, so I just put out a bid on thumbtack. Patrick responded very quickly and with a very reasonable price. I had resigned myself to just getting a studio portrait with a neutral background, but Patrick had the idea of meeting at City Hall to take the photo. I was very nervous and self-conscious about the process. I don't like having my picture taken and I am not very photogenic. It helped that City Hall was full of other photographers taking pictures of brides, grooms, and other people like me, so I didn't really stand out. I had a problem and ended up being pretty late to our meeting, but Patrick was very nice about it. I was sweating like crazy in my suit, but he did a good job of putting me at ease and letting me rest and cool down for a little bit white while he staked out spots to take the photo. He talked with me casually about what I was looking for in the photo, but we also made small talk about our lives and work, so that soon I felt very comfortable with him. As a result, I looked very natural in the photo. Patrick took a lot of shots, and several of them were quite good. I needed the work done on very short notice, including a print. I made the bid on a Sunday, we did the photo shoot on Monday, and I had the print by Tuesday morning. I love the photo, and my family and friends do too. Everyone agreed that not just my appearance, but also my personality comes through in the photo. I will definitely call Patrick again if I need another photo taken in the future!

About

Finding a wedding photographer was such an overwhelming task and my husband and I were so glad to have found Genevieve Jerome Photography. From our initial discussions, we found that she as easy to work with, offered us different photo packages to help us stay in my budget, and had a fun journalistic style of photography that worked perfectly with our personalities and venue. Genevieve was extremely organized in the months leading up to my wedding and maintained constant contact. It was reassuring to know that she had everything under control. On the day of our wedding, she and her assistant showed up early and were ready to go. Despite the fact that I was still running around to set things up (my wedding was mainly DIY) Genevieve set about taking dress photos and pre-wedding shots without me having to ask. My husband, a stickler for tradition, didn’t want to take any pre-ceremony shots, so Genevieve efficiently used that time to get separate bridesmaid and groomsmen photos. During the ceremony, we didn’t even notice she and her assistant were there taking photos. We were surprised at some of the great shots they got because they were very quiet and unobtrusive. Ninja photographers! Genevieve really shined during the family photos. Knowing that we were on a tight timeline, she organized everyone for a super-fast and efficient photo shoot and even included some fun group photos at my request. This was the first time my whole family had been together in several years so I know it couldn’t have been easy to get us to stop talking and take photos! The photos were truly beautiful and I laughed and cried as I clicked through the easy access online gallery she put up for me and my family. Like everyone says, the wedding was a blur to me and I can barely even remember some of the moments during the reception so I am grateful to have the photos to relive the memories. The lighting at our venue was very difficult to work with (indoor mostly low-light with some blinding accent lights) and she handled it expertly and used the strange lighting conditions to create some really cool lighting effects. Genevieve was also very accommodating to all the crazy shots my husband and I wanted to try out. Our venue was in a planetarium so we had to get some fun photos! Check them out  http://genevievejeromephotography33.blogspot.com/2015/03/when-i-first-moved-to-sacramento-from.html I also can’t get over the great photos of my husband that she captured. He really is resistant to being photographed and claims to not be photogenic at all, but Genevieve’s photos really brought out his character and he looked comfortable in all the photos. He barely lets me take photos of him! I will treasure these photos even more knowing that I will probably never get him to agree to take so many photos again. Thank you Genevieve for capturing the energy and excitement of our planetarium wedding so perfectly!

Roi was awesome to work with. He took photos in SF ( 2 locations) of my 16 year old daughter and was kind and patient as she's a bit shy. He took extra time with her and the photos are great. We will use him again and highly recommend him. We found him on Thumbtack and now I am telling all my friends what a great service Thumbtack is to find great, high quality services like photographers

About

I specialize in portraiture and headshots because I love working with people. A lot of photographers are great technicians... but not so great with people. Since a portrait is a collaboration between the subject and the photographer, this human side of photography is essential! If you don't like your photographer, you're not going to collaborate very well. I'm friendly and approachable. I want you to look amazing. I mean it. I am well-versed in corporate head shots, online dating profile pictures, personal portraits, editorial, and lifestyle portraiture. While these are my specialties, I have also worked extensively as a food photographer and an event photographer. My clients range from authors, small start-ups, and self-employed individuals, to Fortune 100 companies and international firms.

About

We hired Tawnya for our baby photo shoot. Here are couple of things about our experience. She is professional, knows how to work with babies. She got lot of outfits to choose from. She has lot of patience which is must for babies photo shoot. She is right on time when baby is in good mood which helped to take good shots. Only issue we faced is that is in full busy with photo shoots. I generally prefer talking to photographers and this time i had to do it through text messages and emails. But still she is very prompt in getting all the information needed. Till now we are very happy about the photo shoot. We are waiting for the images. Once received i will be updating the ratings and comments
