Lawrence was terrific to work with. He went well above and beyond the initial request to provide me with an excellent experience and portfolio of photos to enjoy for the rest of my life. Lawrence took photos of a surprise proposal for my now fiancee. He offered to meet me in SF the day before the date of the event to map out the plan in person together. He arrived 30 minutes early on the day of the event and snapped 100+ excellent & candid photos of the proposal. He then stayed with us for another hour after the proposal to take more staged engagement photos, and even met us again later that evening to capture different lighting and allow us to change clothes. The initial quote was simply for an hour of his time on the day of the proposal.

I can't say enough how happy we are with Michael as our wedding photographer. He did both our engagement photos and our wedding photos and, although it is still too soon for us to have gotten all of our wedding photos back yet I am confident they will come out amazing (just like our engagement photos did and the sneak peak photo of our wedding that he has already sent us). In addition to skills as a photographer I would also recommend michael for his laid back and fun personality that really helped us to just relax and be normal on our wedding day!

Thomas did a great job capturing our wedding at Wine & Roses in Lodi! Very professional and friendly person. He was never in the way or distracting like I have seen with other wedding photographers and yet he was still able to take so many amazing and memorable photos. Thank you!

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.

Andrea shot engagement photos for us recently, and we loved working with her. She met us at an obscure beach, waded across a creek and stuck with us through wind and cold to capture incredible moments that we'll treasure forever. We showed her a few inspiration shots on Pinterest and she reproduced several to a tee. Not only was the outcome more than we hoped for, Andrea was a joy to spend the day with. She's prompt, friendly, has a great eye, incredibly quick turnaround and very affordable. Can't recommend her enough!

Eric and his assistant, Claire were so professionally unobtrusive during my daughter’s wedding event, I did not even notice they were there. The proof of their presence is in the captivating candid photos and the beautiful artistic photos that recorded the entire day. Everyone looks amazing. Eric perfectly captured the unique personalities of the bride and groom throughput the day. I was not able to meet Eric until the day of the wedding because I live overseas. I chose based upon his portfolio and online communication. What could have been a series of pretty pictures of a cookie cutter country club wedding with another photographer is instead a perfect blend of photojournalism, fine art, and traditional styles, Eric’s and Claire’s work show the very present, palpable feelings between the bride and groom. Perfect.

Daryl was amazing from start to finish. He made our engagement photo session go super smooth and lightened the mood since engagement pictures could be awkward at times. The wedding was no different, Daryl made everyone at ease. I would recommend him to anyone who wants an amazing photographer with a personal touch. I truly felt like Daryl was a part of the family on our big day.

I've hired many photographers in the past for various events such as wedding, corporate parties and other events and William J Simpson trumps all of them by far! I knew I would enjoy his artistic take on photography and I love his eye for great moments and angles. Who knew it would take a first birthday party to finally find the right photographer! :) He was very punctual, responded quickly to my emails, and such a joy to work with during the event. Professional and personal at the same time. You won't regret hiring him for your next project or event. I know I'll be coming back to him for future events!

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!!

We hired Ananda for a last minute decision to have a wedding in November. We planned our wedding in 2 months time! Ananda was perfect! Because of our last minute decision, we were not planning to take any engagement photos, but she made it super easy for us. She is located in Sacramento. Our wedding was to be held in Sacramento, but we live in the Bay Area. She was nice enough to meet us in San Francisco to take our engagement photos! We appreciated her organization and time management. Prior to the wedding, she emailed us a questionnaire asking where will the bride get ready, who are the bridesmaids/groomsmen/parents of the bride and groom etc., addresses of the reception/venue. This was reassuring. She was punctual. This was important to us to have someone who is timely! During the wedding, she took many candid photos in which we loved. She also took pictures of the guests as they waited for the bride and groom to enter the ceremony and reception area. Those photos were awesome. We actually developed them and sent them along with our Thank-You Cards. The quality of her photos are extraordinary! Top notch! She was able to get the pictures back to us in 2 weeks time after the wedding. Even faster for the engagement photos. I believe it was 3-4 days. She is also very very sweet! She gave us a wedding gift as well as a baby gift as my husband and I are expecting! -Clark and Erica Torres

We hired Larry for our company event, he is very responsible, provides great work with excellent price. A lot of other photographers will try make extra by not providing a full service, with him all the planning and post editing are included. Larry is also great that when we were setting up the venue, he arrived early to help, as well as staying late to help us clean up. Great guy!

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.
