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.

Diane always responded quickly, to my questions. She came onsite and was very thorough. Her work was superior to other drone vendors we have used in the past. The stills arrived in 1 day, and the edited video took less than 3 days.

Tri was very easy to work with. He is very friendly, professional and puts people at ease, which is important for a photographer to be able to do. He was very competitive on his fees as well.

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.

I asked Steven to take my Graduation Photos this past May (2017). I was attracted to his dramatic style and was even more impressed with the final photos. Steven's professionalism shone through and made working with him a breeze. He works hard to make sure customers like the photos they are getting -- he asked about what kind of poses I was comfortable with, discussed what colors/style I was looking for, and continuously shared the photos he took throughout the shoot for feedback. He was very accommodating to my numerous requests (which included asking for photos at extra angles, re-taking photos to fix even the most minute details) and was patient in trying new poses and ideas. His attention to detail helped elevate the quality of the final product. This was exemplified during the shoot, through his simple suggestions on how to fix poses, as well as after, when the final photos demonstrated his strong eye for color. Furthermore, having worked with multiple photographers in the past, I have come to realize that being comfortable with the photographer is extremely important for truly natural, candid photos. Steven is both friendly and funny; I didn't feel awkward in front of the camera or too "pose-y." I believe the example photos I attached below show how much fun I had shooting with him! +++, 10/10, would recommend!! I look forward to working with Steven again in the future :)

I was looking for an affordable, no frills, family photographer-- I received 10 bids thru thumbtack, and Lawrence's bid was LESS than 1/3 the cost of the others-- PLUS he gave us the DVD with all the prints (most photographers will only allow you to order prints thru them). He scouted out a location, met us the day after Christmas, and had our photos ready on DVD the very next day. I highly recommend him for anyone looking for high quality, basic family photos.

Usman was absolutely wonderful to work with. We booked him for our summer wedding and his professional experience really came through in a major way. He kept us on-schedule during the big day, offered up recommendations for photo ideas and locations and was open to our suggestions as well. The final photos look amazing and we couldn't be happier with the end product. Highly recommended!

Nabor did a great job with my head shots. He provided suggestions before our session and specific direction during the session which I found very helpful. He asked how I was planning to use the photos and worked to understand my preferences. And he was very good about explaining the "why" behind his instructions. I am very pleased with the end result! Nabor sent me the finished photos almost immediately after our session was done.

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.

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!

Jennifer was the best photographer and witness my husband and I could have wished for. My husband and I got eloped at the San Francisco City Hall in February 2017. Jen was our photographer and sole witness. She was very helpful in guiding us around the city hall and she took the most beautiful and sincere pictures! My husband and I aren't very "romantic" or extroverted, so we were worried that we'd be put in cheesy awkward poses for our wedding pictures. But that wasn't the case at all! Jen was able to pick up on our personalities very quickly and she was able to feature the real us through her camera lens. Her experience, professionalism, and down to earth personality relaxed our wedding jitters and made us completely at ease. She was the perfect complement to our wedding day. I highly recommend Jen for any event :)

Sheila did a shoot for our nonprofit organization, Wish of a Lifetime, that grants life-enriching Wishes to senior citizens. This particular Wish was for a 90 year old WWII Paratrooper named James, who we sent from his home in Denton, TX to Napa Valley, CA to go wine tasting. James has overcome significant obstacles in his life and is facing serious health complications, but wine tasting is something that continues to provide him with an unmatched sensory experience. We reached out to photographers to document this special Veteran's Wish using Thumbtack, and Sheila responded almost immediately. The photos are incredible, and Sheila made friends with our Wish Recipient. Thanks to her, we now have photos to remember and share this unbelievable Wish. Thank you Sheila!

First time using Thumbtack and hiring a photographer. Tri is top notch. Before the shoot, we collaborated through email about different ideas and had a good game plan going in. During the shoot, we were fast and efficient and got hundreds of photos taken within an hour. Tri is a great photographer and a pleasure to work with.
