Nabor Godoy did an amazing job. We went to Berkley to do the couple shoot and the location he took us too was beautiful. Nabor was very patient with us and made us feel comfortable first. He has an excellent eye for photography and takes marvelous shots. He is a perfectionist and is very prompt with his emails and replies. Very warm person and makes sure he gets us shots the way we want 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.

Amazing time with Michael Keel. His quality and work ethic are second to none. Comparable price to most high quality photographers. Professional in all the right sense. We would book him for any other event should we need professional photography done. Legit, thanks Michael.

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.

Stavan and his team were the photographers and videographer at our wedding a couple of weeks ago in Gilroy CA. They were reliable, energetic, personable, very creative and professional in every way. The showed us on time. Every guest was impressed how approachable they were. We can't wait to see the photos! My wife is counting down the dates to get the pictures and I feel sure they are going to amaze us! I will return with more reviews after we get the pictures and videos.

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.

Enjoyed working with Tri; he was fast, friendly, and efficient. Also, after looking through many similar photographers in the Bay Area, I was most impressed with Tri’s work. Certainly that quality came through in the photos he took of me - I was very happy with the end result.

I did a week trip with Chantelle as a photo group, and she was extremely thorough with every photographer, and was able to fulfill each and everyone's very different needs and styles that were appropriate for each shoot. Her style will meet your expectations every time, as she is hard working, and dedicated to making her clients more than satisfied with her fabulous work.

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!

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!

Eric and Claire were a delight to have as our photographers. Each time we spoke with Eric, he came prepared with ideas on locations. Before the actual day, he scouted out additional locations. We liked his work which is why we picked him. But, our wedding was on Saturday and we've already seen some samples, and we love, love what we've seen so far. Eric is professional, accommodating and his passion for his work is apparent. Even our guests enjoyed his presence at the wedding. We couldn't be happier with our experience of working with him.

Im soooo happy I finally got to shoot with this guy! For all you models & non-models looking to do a sexy boudoir, follow/hit up Cheshire! I have to say, he’s one of the best boudoir photographers I’ve ever had. Not only is his studio simply gorg, but he also makes you feel comfortable & incredibly beautiful. Meeting you with champagne, grapes/cheese/crackers while you’re getting ready makes you feel like you’re the only special one during your shoot. I felt like a million bucks shooting in front of him. By being so taken care of, your photos will definitely reflect that and turn out AMAZING! Even my unedited photos were simply beautiful! Whether you’re doing a boudoir for yourself or for your loved one, reach out to @oaktownboudoir for your bookings!

Sumit was amazing! About two weeks before my husband's 40th birthday party, I decided I'd like to hire a photographer to take photos at the dinner. I started searching the web, found thumbtack, and put in a request for a photographer. My husband always looks uncomfortable when a photographer is around, but I thought I'd give it a go so we could try to get some nice photos of the special day. I have to tell you that hiring Sumit was the best decision I made regarding the party planning. He captured very special moments including my husband walking into the party and meeting friends he had not seen in years. We also had a few impromptu speeches and Sumit captured the moment for us with each of those speeches. Sumit was so professional and helpful! He was very easy to work with and completely blended in during the party. His photos were excellent and truly captured the moment and emotions of the evening. Both his candid and group shots were phenomenal! I sent the guests a link to view the photos and several people commented on what a great job the photographer did. Seriously- I've previously sent professional family shots from other photographers to my friends and family, and this is the first time people emailed me to say how good a job the photographer did in capturing a moment. I would definitely recommend Sumit, and from now on he will be my go-to guy for professional photos in the future!

My favorite photographer I've shot with so far. I am a newer model in the industry, and he made me feel very comfortable/confident. He has been very professional when it comes to his responsiveness, work quality, and punctuality. Not to mention he also is incredibly talented and creative. Everytime working with Nico is a new adventure :)

JP is awesome. He is punctual, and knows his craft. He’s not about the money, he’s about the art. JP takes his time to get you the best shot, he’s not in a hurry and makes sure everything is perfection. Hands down the best photographer I’ve ever worked with. Being in the real estate field, I’ve worked with ALOT.
