Wedding and Event Photography
We hired Lawrence as the photographer for my nephew's wedding. He was incredibly responsive in the time leading up to the wedding. He arrived during set up and took pictures of the set up process and decorations prior to the wedding party and guests arrival. He took great pictures of the guests, the dance floor, and most importantly amazing pictures of the bride, groom, their families and wedding party. I would recommend Lawrence over and over again for your event. Thank you Lawrence for the amazing pictures.Mar 19, 2020VerifiedLawrence Gerald's reply

Lawrence Gerald always got back to me quickly. Our 50th wedding anniversary celebration took place at Embassy Suites, Milpitas, CA His photos were very clear, and he was easy to work with. He also added special effects to some of the unique photos. He was at the event from 10:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. His fee was reasonable for the quality of work and number of pictures he took. I would definitely recommend Larry as a photographer for any event.Jan 1, 2015Verified

Lawrence photographed our wedding and truly captured the beauty, elegance, and majesty of our special day. He was professional, prompt, and worked well with all of our vendors. We would highly recommend Lawrence for any photography event. Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding the most memorable experience possible.Nov 1, 2015Verified
Lawrence photographed our wedding on August 29, 2015. He drove all the way from the Bay Area to Shingle Springs, arrived early and stayed late! The photos (hundreds of them!) were beautiful, and his expertise is apparent. I highly recommend Clearlight Video and Photography for your special event!Sep 11, 2015Verified
Amazing job not only was he early but he helped get everything ready in the hectic setup. Lawrence was not just my wedding photographer but he seemed to always be there whenever anyone needed a hand. The photos were great and I received them quickly! I would definitely recommend him to friends and family, he is easy going and was smiling throughout the entire event!Jul 25, 2015Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Generally 150.00-250 minimum, I make exceptions depending on the job. I am flexible on rates and can make deals that make both sides satisfied. I accept checks, cash, or paypal and venmo. Also please know that the photographers and videographers have to pay a Thumbtack stipend ranging from 10.00 to 50.00 when we contact you back. So please be in consideration of that when choosing a professional.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?If possible a phone conversation and or discussion via thumbtack, setting up the number of hours they want me for then price agreement, ask clients to indicate on Thumbtack that they are hiring me so other people will know and we can have a record of it on Thumbtack. Discussion about location of venue, editing prices , how payment is made, paypal, credit card, cash, check,
