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.

Clearlight Video & Photography captured the best of my wedding. Lawrence is professional, kind, outgoing, curious, thoughtful, and takes the initiative to get the perfect shot. He calmly and tactfully directed our guests into the frame to get all the compositions we asked for (and more). Lawrence has a natural ability to capture real emotion and personality from strangers, such that many of our best photos are his candids. Moreover, all of our guests complimented us on his professionalism, friendliness, and ability to get people in the shot to compose good images. Lawrence was easy to work with throughout the process. We negotiated a price easily, even though my situation was fairly unique. Lawrence also allowed me access to his RAW files, something many photographers refuse to do. When I was unable to transfer the files to my computer after the event, Lawrence made additional arrangements to ensure I received them. Lawrence even continued to work on some of my images after the event had completed and he had been paid in full, sending me his alterations gratis. In sum, I speak for all of my guests in saying we were incredibly impressed with Lawrence's work. Measured by quality, I can see the services of Clearlight Video & Photography easily costing in excess of $2,000, especially in the Bay Area. I consider Lawrence's photography services to be the best bargain of my wedding, and give him my highest recommendation.

My husband and I needed a photographer that had the patience to capture a great photo of us and our 6 dogs. We've done this before with other photographers and we know what a challenge it is getting all 6 to behave and look at the camera at the same time. As predicted it did have it's chaotic moments. But Michael just kept shooting and telling us it was all fine, which put me at ease and captured some fun moments. Even when one of our dogs took off (our fault) Michael put down his camera and took off after him, and brought him back to finish the shoot. The photos were very artistically done with this cool 60's effect. Not sure how he did it but we loved it because it was very different from other photos we have. He also did some lovely B&W's which are begging to be made into an iPhoto booklet. We even blew up our favorite and had it canvas wrapped to hang in our office at home. I would recommend Michael Keel Photography for any type of photo shoot knowing you will get something artistically beautiful and maybe a little unexpected.

Sheila is not only a talented photographer but also very professional. She is very communicative and was a pleasure to work with. She was a joy to have around during the wedding day and was honestly a "fly on the wall" unlike other wedding photographers who are too "in it". The pictures she takes are beautiful and extremely well priced. I would not hesitate to work with her again. I actually look forward to it.

Jeff was smart, prepared, and professional. I selected him over other photographers because my impression was that he approached a job with the customer's needs at heart, and his work at our event certainly bore that out. He communicated well, was unobtrusive and helpful, and oh by the way he took some wonderful pictures of people engaged and working together at our event. You will enjoy working with Jeff, I promise.

Stavan did a great job photographing of our wedding! His pictures were lovely, and plentiful, and he did a great job of getting the right shots without getting in the way (like some photographers). Very highly recommended!

Diane was wonderful. She photographed my daughter's wedding in Santa Cruz, CA. When I first contacted her she was very professional and extremely friendly and took the time to answer all of my questions. The few times I needed to contact her prior to the wedding she responded very quickly. On the wedding day she was on time and again very professional. The guests and our family members liked her very much as she was polite and blended very nicely with the group, never getting in the way. Most importantly the bride and groom really liked her and were very glad that she was my choice. She made them feel very comfortable. I received the pictures very quickly and they are beautiful. Everyone loves them and I look at them almost every day. So excited to get prints made. The price was very reasonable and I feel I definitely got my money's worth and then some. I highly recommend Diane and hopefully can work with her again some time. Lorraine Eugene, OR

Choosing Jennifer as our photographer for our wedding day was the best decision we made. Great communication since our first conversation. Our wedding day was chaotic! But she was there trying to do whatever she could to help us. The photos of our wedding beat our expectations, she was able to capture all the love and happiness of our wedding, everyone who saw our pictures loved them! Thank you Jen for being awesome and capturing such amazing images of the best day of our lives!

Ahhhh, I absolutely love our photos! Andrea photographed our daughter's first birthday party. She was an absolute pro, on time, low maintenance, sleuth-y. :) The images are amazing and she gave us soooo many. (So often photographers only give 10-20 as part of the rate, but Andrea shared over 200 with us.) She was lovely, talented, and responsible. I would hire her again and so should you!

Eric and his lighting assistant, Claire, did an AMAZING job at my recent wedding on February 17, 2018 at the Elks Lodge in South San Francisco! I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone in search of a local photographer. Amidst wedding planning and looking at expenses, my now husband and I, finally decided that we should have a photographer after all. We were nervous about prices, and after contacting many other photographers, we felt that it might be out of our desired budget. I came across Thumbtack on Facebook, and requested photography services. Eric contacted me within minutes, and quickly followed up via email and later phone. He was super easy to work with, creative, and really had a great vision for what we wanted captured on our special day. He also offered an incredibly reasonable price for all that he offers. He helped put our minds at ease, and assisted us with coming up with a tentative schedule that ended up working effortlessly. He is very great at giving direction when taking photos, and makes everyone feel comfortable. He is also great at working with other vendors, as he worked very well with our DJ to coordinate our evening's events. I couldn't be happier with the "Quick Peek" that he sent me a few days later, and am incredibly excited to see the rest! The photos are beautiful! Thank you so much, Eric and Claire for providing us with such wonderful memories! http://www.npointphoto.com/Clients/Current-Clients/Nicole-and-Rene-Wedding-Quick-Peek/

He made us all feel special, beautiful...handsome. We feel very lucky that we made the decision to hire Daryl and recommend his services to all.

We put on corporate events in cities across the country and having high-quality photos is critical to our business. For the past two years we've had the pleasure of working with Cheshire on several occasions and he's by far one of the best photographers we've worked with. We are most impressed with his ability to capture the spirit and energy of our events with great attention to detail. We have no doubt that you'll have a great experience working with Cheshire!

I've been modeling for about a year now, and the only reason I was even able to get my foot in the door a fraction of the way was because of Nico. He was the first person I ever shot with. Since that time we have worked together numerous other times. My favorite thing about Nico, besides his obviously gorgeous photographs, is how comfortable he makes me feel when we shoot. I love pushing the boundaries of my art and being able to work with Nico is the only way I'm able to do that. Nico loves what he does and it shows 100% of the way through his work. He cares about making me, and every other model he's worked with I have no doubt, feel respected. This is a huge problem in the industry, but photographers like Nico are hopefully the forefront of a big change that needs to happen. I use so many photo's that Nico has taken of me in my portfolio, and my agent loves them .
