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.

Larry, I want to thank you for making my wedding event so awesome with your picture taking. The pictures are so natural, the video is also very nice to have, I did things I do not remember and the video is a great thing for my kids and grand kids to see. Thank you for being very considerate on the price and and thank you for staying later than planed. I would totally recommend you to be the photographer for any event. My family was impressed on how much energy and dedication you put in while taking all pictures and also ensuring that you were taking all requests from many people. You made a diffidence taking pictures of one of the my most important events of my life. Thank you so much:) Gecsabel Bardales

Michael took photos at our daughters outdoor wedding in Sonoma County. He was recommended by a friend of hers and when we saw his website, we knew we wanted to hire him. He does not take just standard pose and smile photos. He makes sure they are unique and adds style through his editing. He was great to work with and we are more than happy with the results!

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 took photos for my parents 60th anniversary party. He took some group & family photos and then just mingled in the crowd and took photos of friends & family that were visiting. He worked for 2 hours and just became part of the group where no one knew he was there to take photos. He was very easy to work with. We had to change some plans at the last minute and he was flexible and courteous about making the changes. He was prompt in his response time to e-mail and phone messages. He had the photos loaded on a gallery for us to view by the next morning. The pictures were great quality and he presented his work well. He took the initiative to touch up some of the family photos and make them look outstanding. Jeff went above and beyond the scope of work that we discussed, his service was excellent. He was personable and fun to work with. Overall, my family was very blessed by Jeff's work and would highly recommend him.

Dan’s a trustworthy, easy-going, thoughtful photographer. Unlike my experience w/another Thumbtack photographer, you’re not going to get a long contract with a draconian set of requirements where essentially you don’t own the photos even though you’re paying for them. He just takes photos at his preferred outdoor location (extra cost for an alternative location), emails you the photos, edits a few based on your feedback, and sends an invoice.

We had an amazing family session with AT Photo Art - everything about it was enjoyable! Adam is a great person and very patient with kids – I have 9 months baby and a 5 years girl and controlling them wasn’t easy but he made it all fun and memorable. I personally was amazed with all the tools and had to entertain the kids and create new ideas for the whole family – he was prepared to the outdoor session and we tried different locations and he was nice enough to let us change the outfit and all included in the same package. Photos were delivered on a reasonable time and very nicely edited. Can’t wait for more  THANKS ADAM.

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!

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 hired many photographers in the past for various events such as wedding, corporate parties and other events and William J Simpson trumps all of them by far! I knew I would enjoy his artistic take on photography and I love his eye for great moments and angles. Who knew it would take a first birthday party to finally find the right photographer! :) He was very punctual, responded quickly to my emails, and such a joy to work with during the event. Professional and personal at the same time. You won't regret hiring him for your next project or event. I know I'll be coming back to him for future events!

We initially reached out to Rick because we liked the work on his website. We decided to move forward with Rick for a home family photo session because of our connection through a phone conversation, his professionalism and responsiveness. Rick was fantastic to work with for number reasons. He was open to accommodate our fixed schedule, was friendly, prompt and full of suggestions. I let him know I was not sure about what background we should use letting him know that it could be a couple different locations on the property. That did not concern him and he ended up bringing a lot of photography equipment beyond cameras and lenses. What stood out about Rick the most was his generosity regarding his time. He was extremely patient and really wanted for us to feel relaxed, comfortable and confident that we had the shots we wanted before he left. Not only do I recommend Rick but I will certainly use him again.

We had a family photo shoot with Alex and we couldn't be happier! He was very professional and made our photo shoot a comfortable and fun experience. He had a lot of great ideas and he took a lot of photos of which I'm sure we will find ones we love! I highly recommend Alex not only for his photo creativity and professionalism but also for value! You will not find another photographer in the Bay Area for such a great price. You will not regret having Alex take your photos and I know we will definitely hire him again.
