(SPANISH BELOW) I want to highly recommend Nabor for your next photography project. I was contacted by my book editor asking for a head sot for my next novel. I live in Petaluma, CA and after looking at the rates of local photographers I tried this website. I obtained several bids and since I know very little about photography I asked my son for his opinion (he does photography for fun). After looking at the work of the people who sent bids he advised me that Nabor's work was the best "hands down". I negotiated with Nabor and he traveled to Petaluma to take the photos. We met early in the morning and when I got there he was already waiting for me. I was immediately impressed with his professional demeanor and flexibility. We walked around town and he knew exactly where the right background was. I knew then I was working with an artist. The love for his work is apparent in the photos he took. He got it right from the third photo but went on to take 191 photos!!!. The difficult part for me has been having to decide on just one photo. Nabor is definitely the best photographer I have ever worked with. There is something else beautiful about Nabor and that is that his first language is Spanish which is also my first language. It was truly a pleasurable experience to collaborate with someone passionate about his work. His photo will be a blessing to my novel. Thank you Nabor. (IN SPANISH) Quiero recomendar altamente Nabor para su próximo proyecto de fotografía. Mi editor de libros me pidió una fotografía reciente y profesional para mi próxima novela. Yo vivo en Petaluma, California, y después de mirar los precios de fotógrafos locales decidí probar este sitio web. Obtuve una serie de ofertas y puesto que sé muy poco acerca de la fotografía le pregunté a mi hijo su opinión (él hace la fotografía por diversión). Después de ver el trabajo de las personas que enviaron las propuestas mi hijo me aconsejó que el trabajo de Nabor era el mejor "sin comparación". Negocié con Nabor y viajó a Petaluma para tomar las fotos. Nos encontramos temprano en la mañana y cuando llegué ya me estaba esperando. Me impresionó inmediatamente su profesionalismo y su flexibilidad. Caminamos por el pueblo y él eligió el escenario perfecto para las fotos, sin durarlo mucho. Entonces supe que estaba trabajando con un artista. El amor por su trabajo es evidente en las fotos que tomó. Desde la tercera foto ya había cumplido con su encomienda y sobrepasado mi expectativa, pero siguió trabajando hasta tener ¡ 191 fotos !!!. La parte difícil para mí ha sido decidir en una sola foto. Nabor es sin duda el mejor fotógrafo con quien he trabajado. Hay algo todavía más bello de Nabor y es que su primer idioma es el español, que también es mi primera lengua. Fue realmente una experiencia agradable colaborar con alguien apasionado por su trabajo. Su foto será una bendición para mi novela. Gracias Nabor.

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.

Jeff was a true professional, arrived on time, dressed appropriately, was unobtrusive and polite. He checked in with me throughout the gig to determine where and who from our conference event needed to be captured on film. The resulting photographs were wonderful, a fabulous gallery of shots to choose from - relaxed and candid conversations, complimentary portraits of speakers and guests, beautifully focused. An extremely fast turnaround (less than 12 hours!) I'd highly recommend Jeff if you're looking for a professional event photographer. I feel lucky to have found him here on thumbtack.

Adam and Hanna are the best photographers we ever had! They did an outstanding job during our wedding! They were there taking all the pictures we wanted but they never got in the way. They are a wonderful married couple and so friendly and easy to work with and very professional at the same time. The quality of their photographs is of the highest order! We are so happy we chose them. We give Adam and Hanna our highest recommendation for your wedding or for any major event you have.

Patrick is a great event photographer. He came ready with questions to make sure he achieved what we were looking for. I felt like I saw him every which way I turned during the event. The photos were just what we were looking for and he send the digitals to me within 2 business days. Definitely recommend!

Jen was a pleasure to work with and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a great Bay Area photographer. She knew her way around city hall and the civic ceremony process, which helped calm our nerves. Her directions during the photo shoot were clear, helpful, fun, and gentle. She is fantastic! Thank you so much, Jen.

Andrea served as event photographer for my baby shower at the Orinda Country Club. She was on time, very professional and very easy to work with. She sent over a sample photo, which will serve as my picky sister's holiday card photo. Seriously this says a lot! I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures from the event but know they will be beautiful! Highly recommend working with Andrea

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 had to do a short congratulatory video for a friend who is collecting a major award at the Cannes Festival. I come from the ad industry so I'm used to working with filmmakers, photographers etc; I found Ilja to be totally professional, easy to work with (even when I switched the brief) and affordable. He also has a good eye for lighting and performance. Would I use him again? Absolutely.

Usman took pictures for us at our SF City Hall Civil Ceremony and we couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. This was my first time using Thumbtack and I wasn't sure of the process or exactly what to expect, but was extremely pleased with the outcome and how easy it was. As a photographer, Usman was truly a pleasure to work with - he knew the City Hall civil ceremony process and made everything easy for us and a lot of fun. We loved his professional yet laid back style and it made us feel very comfortable and at ease in front of the camera (something that we weren't used to). From getting the quote, arranging details, payment, etc. everything was efficient and fast, but also very well done. He knew the best spots in and around City Hall for pictures - and I couldn't believe how many we were able to take in just an hour with him. We received the retouched photos very quickly (in less than a week!) via Dropbox and absolutely LOVE them. He did an amazing job! We would definitely work with Usman again and will certainly recommend him to our friends and family. Thank you Usman for capturing our day so perfectly! It was a pleasure to have you be a part of it. Thank you!

My client needed an on-site photographer/videographer that was based in the Sacramento area, and Donald from Up Logic Media was the perfect fit for what we needed. Finding a professional you can trust to get the job done can be a nerve-racking, but Up Logic Media surpassed our expectations by a landslide.

I told Tri that we would be having a corporate VIP event at Celtra, Inc. and we needed him to take some shots. Tri definitely delivered, he was very professional and took plenty of high quality shots that made Celtra, Inc. look like an appealing company. His turnaround for the photos was only 24 hours and the image quality was excellent. Will definitely hire him again!

The event for which I hired him was a surprise and he showed up early and was ready to go right when I needed him. The pictures he took were very high quality though there were some instances where better angles could have been used - only minor flaws though. All in all, I would recommend him if you’re looking for a punctual photographer that will produce high quality photos for a reasonable price
