We're very happy with the work that DeNoise Studio did for our wedding. We decided at the very last minute (like two weeks beforehand) that we wanted video of the ceremony, and once we found Albert, he hit the ground running. His promptness and efficiency came through not just during the planning process but after the wedding itself, as the turn-around on producing the video was only a few days! And the video turned out exactly the way we wanted: a very simple and beautiful portrait of a wonderful hour of our lives. Thanks so much, DeNoise!

We hired Nabor for my son's senior picture photo shoot. He was extremely personable and professional throughout the session. He had an excellent eye for outfits, poses, and lighting that translated into so many proofs that I'm still struggling to choose between them 5 days later! I would highly recommend Nabor for a portrait or headshot session - update your LinkedIn profile today with a professional portrait!

I am delighted that I found Cindy Hegger and Thumbtack. The entire experience could not have been easier. Cindy was a delight--on time, cheerful, and from her pictures she seemed to be everywhere at once. I loved the diversity of events in Cindy's portfolio, and her skill with portraits and candids. We asked for lots of people photos, and she delivered. She offered a package that was just right for our budget and got images back to us very quickly. I will definitely recommend her to friends and family!

Cindy photographed our large extended family on Christmas day. She arrived early, was extremely professional while being laid-back, and worked well with all the members of the family, including a cantankerous uncle, tantrum prone toddler, and excitable dog. We received links to the photos the next day, and the portraits and candids are great.

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!

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.

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.

Very good experience with Dan who took some headshots, portraits and "action" photos of me teaching a class. Some photos definitely came out better than others, but this could have been my error in not hiring a stylist to help with the little details.

Patricia did an excellent job at our gala. She arrived on time and was set up in a flash. Our guests thouroughly enjoyed themselves in the photo booth and her props were perfect.

Patricia did an amazing job for my son's bar mitzvah party.

Diane was a joy to work with. She photographed my sister's bachelorette bash in SF and took us around to some fabulous locations. We got a few shots with the Golden Gate Bridge in the background, at the Palace of Fine Arts, and she even threw in a few aerial shots with her drone! She is an amazing value, a great communicator, and extremely patient. I'd highly recommend her to anyone who needs a photographer in the Bay Area.

Chantelle was AMAZING! She went above and beyond what I expected. I hired her to do my hair and makeup for my wedding. She showed up on time ready to go. Like always in a great mood. My makeup came out perfect and stayed on all night (noon to 1am). I switched my hair last minute and she had no issue with it and my husband loved it. She also helped out my bridesmaids with some eyeliner and even did a quick up do for another. My photographer called and said she was running late so she wouldn't be able to take any pics of me getting ready. I was a little bummed......BUT CHANTELLE HAD HER CAMERA. She started snapping away and was able to get the shots my photographer missed. Thank you so much Chantelle for making me look and feel incredible on my wedding day!

I not only love the amazing job Chantelle did for my album promotional photos for my latest music release. But the fact that she offers photo, makeup and hair as a complete service package is so easy and allowed me with my very busy schedule to have the time during hair and make up to feel comfortable and get to know her. So that when the time came for her to start taking the shots we were on the same page. My hair was just how I like it, my makeup looked great on camera and the photos turned out really well. Thanks so much for a great shoot Chantelle and for being so collaborative and really connecting with how I wanted things done.

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.

Jen was fantastic in ever way possible and we absolutely love the pictures she took for us! She was great for our engagement photos and then if possible was even better at the wedding. My wife and I love our time and experience with Jen. She was very professional when it came to communicating with us and made sure we would get every photo we could think of and was very prepared before the wedding day ever came. During the wedding day she went above and beyond our expectations, arriving in plenty of time to get a lay of our venue and stayed to the end to capture our "good bye" moment! During the ceremony and reception, based on her fantastic pictures, it seamed like she was everywhere yet we never seamed to notice her as we were so caught up in our wonderful evening. She was the perfect photographer and we could not be happier with our choice to include Jen in our wedding day!

Jen is a great photographer (just look at her portfolio!), as well as a wonderful individual. She met with us before the wedding day, to talk about what kind of pictures we would like. Then, when it all changed, the venue and the ceremony, she was flexible, supportive, and had a good sense of humor about it all! We loved her photographs and will cherish them always! Thank you Jen!

Andrea photographed a birthday celebration and family photos for us for a large group of family members who had never taken professional family portraits together and was extremely patient considering there were also cranky infants and toddlers involved.

Many thanks to Eric and his assistant for the fabulous and super successful photo session last week. Eric is the ultimate professional — detail-oriented, artistic, kind and flexible. My daughter needed to have a portrait taken for a publication and from the beginning Eric was helpful and easy to work with. He has great ideas for locations in SF and we were able to use two sites in our session with multiple view points. We totally covered the Palace of Fine Arts. The only problem I have will be in choosing a photo because they are all incredibly beautiful. The poses are natural and elegant and my daughter looks happy in every shot. The lighting and composition of each photo really captured the personality of its subject and setting. Eric took extra time with us to explain how our photos would transfer from color to b/w as per the requirements of the publication. Thank you for taking a stressful day and turning it into a fond memory for my daughter and I.

Eric was great. He was available in short notice, flexible with scheduling, and was punctual upon arrival. Even with a complicated lighting environment, he was able to capture some beautiful moments from our engagement party. He leveraged both wide angle lenses capturing the whole space and portrait shots with smooth bokeh. We were impressed with the images we were left with, and would work with Eric again.

I spent a day shooting photos with Cheshire and had a terrific time. We did a mixture of portrait and full-body shots in a variety of outdoor locations around the East Bay, with a few changes of clothing. Cheshire was very friendly and an absolute pleasure to work with. Best of all, I loved how the photos turned out. They are attractive, presenting me authentically and in my best light. Additionally, Cheshire's rates are good for the quality he offers. I hope to work with Cheshire again in the future!

Alex IS AMAZING!!! Talented, patient, soft spoken, flexible and super creative. We are not much of a photogenic people on the first place, and my husband doesn't really like to take pictures. But our photos turned out better than we hoped every single time! And we are so happy that we've created wonderful memories to look back at thanks to Alex. From lovebirds photo shoot to maternity, to baby pictures and family portraits, Alex was able to capture incredible moments and details. And he is so good with capturing kids! Those moments of sweet smiles and silly giggles that you can almost hear through the picture are priceless. We had wonderful time every time we took pictures, I don't think there was a single photo we didn't love. I can't say enough of how happy we are to have Alex as our photographer. Now with another baby coming up in super exited and can't wait to create more memories. I would highly recommend Alex! You will not be disappointed!

I know this is late, but time doesn't take away the from the praise that our family wishes to extend to Mr. Gibson and Photos With a Flair. My Dad's 65th Birthday Party at The Turf Club at Golden Gate Fields pictures were outstanding. We couldn't have ask for better photo coverage for our event. Everyone enjoyed the "Red Carpet" photos, My Dad especially. Mr. Gibson got photos of my family that we will treasure a lifetime.

Wow! What a huge difference good photography makes. I just opened my own business, a hair salon, and needed professional photos for my website to market to hair stylists. The interior photos Fifi took completely captured the look and feel of my salon. She took the time to discuss with me how I wanted to market my salon as well as what the photos should communicate about the space. She suggested including mood photos on the website which ended up being some of my favorite shots and gave my website a truly personal touch. My salon is a challenge to photograph. I have recessed lights, track lighting and wall sconces everywhere in addition to SEVERAL mirrors and shiny, reflective accessories. Fifi was able to capture it all without issue and even got some shots of the beautiful blue sky through my lobby window. Impressive to say the least. Also, I needed a personal portrait taken which I dreaded. I feel very uncomfortable in front of a camera, like a lot of women, and also had a bad experience 5 years prior where I paid a lot of money for portraits I never used because I thought they were so bad. Fifi is great at making you feel comfortable. She is so sweet and just wants to make you feel at ease so she can make you look good. She started by giving me several tips and tricks on how to look great in a picture. This was great direction, and instead of feeling unsure and awkward I felt like I had the tools to make my photos turn out well. We ended up with several excellent portrait shots and there is no better feeling than seeing yourself look great in a picture. I am not someone who feels comfortable marketing myself but my experience with Fifi seriously gave me the courage to put myself out there. Great photos are essential and I cannot thank her enough!!!

Fifi did a great job producing professional head shot photographs for me. She was delightful to work with, very customer focused, and extremely patient. Fifi made me comfortable during the shoot, had an excellent eye for details, worked on my pose, lighting, and background....all this in a public park with activity and people swirling about. The pictures came out great; flawless execution, which resulted in so many good shots to choose from, it caused us a delightful challenge. I think Fifi is an expert photographer, and a lovely person too, and would highly recommend her for any and all photographic needs. If this review doesn't convince you, just go look at her website and you'll be WOW'd. Thanks Fifi for a wonderful job; it was very nice working with you....cheers.

Jonny was hired for our annual company event. He was very responsive, professional, and arrived on time at the event. The quality of his pictures were great. We appreciated the details of his contract and, overall, he is a great guy and has great energy. At the event, some of his equipment didn’t work and he didn’t bring backup. Since he had to go home and get backup he missed a good part of the event and this affected the amount of pictures taken. The end result of pictures for 4hrs of work produced only 150 pictures. Our own team took a significantly larger amount of pictures documenting our event, over 400.
