(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.

Brian photographed my daughter's 3rd birthday party. We had about 55 people in our backyard and he captured incredible images of the children, adults, food, flowers, decor and some cute family group pictures as well. The lighting in the images is perfect. I have been looking for a good event photographer and I found him! He is also a super nice guy and great with kids! I will definitely be hiring him again for our next party!

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.

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.

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.

Steve Fogel was the main photographer at my wedding. He was timely and interested in the style of photos I was looking for. He was focused on getting shots with great framing and flattering lighting. Steve was easy to work with and really wanted to capture the moment. I have enjoyed looking back on the photos over and over. Thank you.

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!

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.

Kathleen went above and beyond photographing our wedding! She is so energetic and up for anything, and it really shows in her photos! She met us girls at the hotel for getting-ready pictures and captured magnificent posed and candid photographs throughout the ceremony and reception. Any time I looked around during the reception, there was Kathleen or her assistant snapping candid photos of me or my guests. Kathleen even volunteered to come take more photos at our after party at the local bar! We were shocked when a week after our wedding, Kathleen sent us links to the final 1300 edited images! The included engagement photo session really helped us to be confident in Kathleen's ability and style and she got a feel for who we were. I highly recommend Kathleen to anyone looking for a wedding photographer - she will not disappoint! I look forward to using Kathleen for family photos in the future!

Working with Irina was easy from start to finish. We set a date that I had to postpone a couple times because I was sick. When I showed up for the shoot Irina spring into action. She gave good direction and tried a number of different poses. I didn't know how the photos would turn out, but she has a good eye and knows how to bring out the best in the subject. I was more than pleased with the photos. I have worked with other photographers and haven't enjoyed those experiences. This was a great experience and worth the fee!

Laurie was such a great photographer. We had her for our San Francisco kids birthday party. She captured every moment and covered more than 50-60 kids each having their special moments. She even climbed into the bouncy house to take picture of them while playing. We would love to work with her again.
