Albert did a great job with my graduation shoot! He was patient with me and actively looked for creative places for me to pose within the venue that I chose.

Nabor Godoy was fantastic. I needed a headshot for work on short notice. He more than delivered! He has a great studio in downtown San Francisco. I got there and he was ready. We went over lighting and backdrop options. I am not very good at smiling for the camera, but he brought out the best in me. He is good natured and talented! We did a series of shots and then paused to look. He and I talked about the work I do and agreed which photo was best. He said he’d work a bit on the shading and wow, two hours later I had it. It was great — better than I expected, and much better than anything I might ask a friend to do on an I-phone. Totally satisfied.

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.

I am so glad to have Thomas as my photographer for my graduation photo. He is so incredibly professional at what he does and he is a very friendly individual. He took all the shots with precisions and perfection. I highly recommend Thomas to be your photographer for your upcoming events. Five stars all the way.

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.

We had our pre wedding photoshoot done by Diane and it was a great experience. We were visiting SF for a few days and were wondering if we will be able to capture the essence of the place in the photoshoot, but Diane drove us to the most beautiful places in the city and clicked lifelong memories. We had some pictures clicked with our friends as well and they came out really well. Diane was very flexible and it was fun spending the entire day with her. She made us really comfortable and helped us all along the photoshoot. I will highly recommend her to couples for their wedding and prewedding photoshoots.

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.

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!

Wendy was AMAZING. She worked my daughters graduation party last night and was there exactly on time, set up quickly, was open the entire event (the equipment worked the entire time as well - a problem I've had in the past!!) I would recommend her for any event!! I can't wait to work with her again!!

Planning a wedding is stressful enough, but not knowing what the results are from the vendors you choose can bring the plans to a standstill. That's where I was before finding Jenn on thumbtack. When she replied to my photography request it was not the estimate that made up my mind; it was the fact that she answered my call! After the first two minutes speaking with her, I knew I found my photographer. Jenn was very upfront with what I could expect from her for the price she was offering. There was nothing that she didn't cover in terms of her contract, the deposit, and the final product. I liked Jenn from the very first moment I spoke with her. Every step of the way she worked with me either by telephone or email. I was fortunate enough that our schedules allowed for a site visit where we had the opportunity to meet in person prior to the big day. Jenn brought her camera and took some "test" shots that she posted on her blog. All I can say is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! Now I was excited for the wedding day! September 3rd finally arrived and I am still bragging to anyone willing to listen about my awesome photographers. Jenn and Shannon were truly a dream to work with. They are super relaxed and not worried about the "perfect picture" but photographing the perfect moment. Jenn and Shannon let my hubby and I call all the shots as far as who and where. Our families were a bit difficult to gather at times, and I worried this could irritate the photographers; not Jenn and Shannon! They made sure that we did not miss our sunset photos and always asked our thoughts on their creative visions. Every once in awhile, Jenn would give me a sneak peek at an amazing shot she just captured! I loved that about her. Anyone thinking of hiring Kept in Time Photography by Jenn & Shannon Mormon will not be disappointed. Their photos are stunning and they are two of the nicest people to work with. I am more than satisfied with the entire experience and will be using them for all future photography needs. Highly recommended by a very happy Bride!!

A group of friends and I booked a graduation photoshoot with Larry and he was a pleasure to work with! Very professional and knowledgable in his work. Scheduling the photoshoot was also a breeze as he was very flexible with timing but also kept in consideration when there would be the best lighting/least crowds in order to get the best-looking photos. After the shoot, he provided the edited photos in a reasonable time and as promised, they turned out great! Would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to get professional photos done in the Bay Area!

I needed some head shots for my new website featuring my latest music. Scott recommend a spot for outdoor pictures incorporating an urban feel. Never would have thought use such a simple but clever cityscape backdrop. Not only does he have a great eye and creative idea's but also top end equipment. I've used other photographers before with half the results. If your looking for a pro he's your guy.......

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.

Thank you Avant-Garde for capturing the most important parts of our event!!! Not only was our engagement beautifully photographed, the little details that most photographers leave out were not missed. His pricing is very fair and affordable. I have him booked for my upcoming wedding in May as well.

JS Photography captured my daughter's birthday party so perfectly. They arrived 30 minutes early to mingle with me and my husband and even began taking photos for us. There were two photographers (Julian and Stephen) for the price of one! The event ran a little over and they stayed with no extra charge. These guys were truly the best photographers I have hired and will most definitely hire them again and recommend them to anyone looking for professional individuals who know how to have fun.
