Thomas Sparks is an amazing photographer. His eye for lighting and positioning is exceptionally skilled, he captures precious moments that many photographers may not catch. He has tremendously creative, easy to work with and affordable. Can't say enough about this photographer! You won't be disappointed.

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!

I am not man of many words, but Terrence is the BEST!!! About a month back Terrence took photos for my marriage proposal. Not only did Terrance take photos, but he played along with a plan to surprise my now fiancé by acting as my "long lost white friend" from high school. She was totally surprise by the plan Terrence help me to set up. He was so professional, helpful, and insightful. Not only was he all those characteristics describe above, but you can tell that he was truly genuine and that he really loves what he does as a professional. I also don't know much about photography, but my photos look GREAT!!. To Terrance credit, it’s not about just the photography, it’s about giving the customer the satisfaction of remembering a special moment on top of having fantastic photos to capture the moment. With my proposal Terrence did just what he promise. Excellent Photography and Customer Satisfaction. If there was an MVP award - Most Valuable Photographer. Terrence is defiantly my guy and has my vote!!! He will defiantly be the photographer at my wedding!! ***Note: If you do hire Terrence, make sure to inquire about the “Johntae and Alicia proposal shoot” in Orlando, FL. GREAT STORY!!***

I work for a Corporation and we were hosing an event. I hired Terrence to take photos of the event while it was taking place. He was great, very personable, and the guests seemed very happy. The pictures were great, I was able to easily download everything off of his website "very user friendly". I would highly recommend Terrence!

Talented, professional, and flexible. He took my graduations photos from UC Davis and met up with me in the area. He brought his equipment and implemented all my ideas. Overall, open-minded and great to work with. His pricing was cheaper than most photographers and photos were received sooner than I thought. I highly recommend.

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!

Audrea is a extremely captivating artist in her photography! I wanted maternity pictures done. But unsure how to go about it. She had several idea's when we met in person. As well did my makeup an hair for the photos. That way the pictures I would look better. Lol she is very fun an I enjoyed my time working with her. I spent the day of the photoshoot laughing alot just because she is so down to earth, and friendly. If you want memories an moments of a special event going on in your life. I highly recommend Audrea as your photographer. She is reliable and flexible for anything you want done! Hope this helps!

We hired Joel to film two days for our wedding. He was professional, down to earth and a funny guy. The end of our event I told Joel he can end his filiming for the day since our reception was coming close to the end but he stayed and captured our cake fight (we cut the cake really late). We're excited to see how all the editing comes together of our wedding. Thanks Joel for the wonderful experience!

Sorry for the late review, we used Elegant Event for a birthday party in feb as DJ, very tolerant guy, his name was Dwayne, very nice and patient with the kids. My sister just used them for their wedding and we all loved the workers that came. Brad was in contact with me constantly, very knowledgeable man, since I was the wedding coordinator, his DJ Dwayne has a quite yet fun way about him. The photographer was Cristian, he is a young guy but he knows what looks good in a picture, very good job! We are all buying our prints. The video was done by Trevor and his wife assistant. He is a very entertaining guy, friendly and its always cute to see a husband and wife loving to work together. Video was breathtaking! All that being said I was very impressed being in the wedding business 15 years I have seen some disasters

Working with Jerome was an amazing experience! From the time we met with him we knew it was a perfect match and we instantly knew we wanted to hire him. His work is absolutely beautiful. Jerome made the effort to get to know us to ensure that our photos reflected exactly what we wanted (love, happiness, fun, family, and most importantly the candid shots!) His kindness and professionalism throughout the VERY hot July summer day shows just how passionate he is about his work. We loved him, our guests loved him and his amazing photos. The quality of his photos are out of this world gorgeous. Looking at our wedding album feels like we are reliving every moment of our special day and we can’t thank him enough. Jerome even kindly gifted us with a couple of extra photos and personalized our wedding album with our color scheme, names, and wedding date! We made the best decision with hiring Jerome and would hire him again for future events! We feel as though we’ve made a friend. If you’re looking for a wedding photographer that is passionate about their work, ensures their customers are satisfied, and has the best quality photos, then look no further then Jerome! Thank you!

My husband and I hired Jerome from Photos with a Flair to photograph our wedding rehearsal dinner. Throughout the whole process, Jerome was very professional, timely and friendly. On the day of the event we had no problems and loved meeting him. He photographed the event with ease and captured moments without being intrusive. He is super friendly and easy to work with. I am 100% glad we hired him to capture moments of this special day. His price is very reasonable. Definitely recommend!

We booked Andy to take headshots for one of our employees who works in a satellite office. He was very responsive and easy to work with. My coworker said she felt comfortable with him during the photoshoot, and his turnaround time for photos and editing was super quick. Photo quality could have been a little better in terms of lighting and depth of shot, but overall this will work for what we needed.

Jay and Cindy are AMAZING. I got to talk to Cindy multiple times before our engagement photos, she was always reachable & responded quickly, we had to reschedule our engagement session multiple times due to weather & it was never a problem for them! Then our engagement session ran long because we were all having such a good time & our photos turned out so amazing, as well as the gorgeous prints we got to display at our wedding! (Not to mention Cindy drove the prints to me at work so i had them days before the wedding! AND Seriously I still can't believe how much was included in our package compared to their competition- or not really competition because Jay & Cindy are the BEST). They worked with all the craziness of our wedding & family, absolutely no problem, shot for 8 hours STRAIGHT, barely stopped for water, I don't even think they ate? They are so flexible & still went above & beyond & captured everything we wanted. I literally smiled for half an hour straight scrolling through our wedding shoot because they captured our whole day perfectly and I got to relive it all again. I keep saying, and I seriously mean it, they are our photographers for life!

We hired B Israel Photography for our wedding and engagement photography and had the best experience. This is the photographer to work with if you want a team that captures photos that look and feel authentic to you - - plus they care about their craft and delivering quality. They will capture your vision and go BEYOND with impressive shots you didn't expect, candid and posed. Things that make them stand a part: experienced photographers, fun to work with, sincerely want to "get" you not just some rinse and repeat typical wedding photos, so much value for your budget, they will rally even the most camera shy to enjoy it and look amazing, professional, quality prints, great communication and delivers on time (this alone is major, some photogs you need to do the follow up work to get your photos months after events)... so yes, rave review from these newlyweds! Cindy and Jay are the best!!

I live in Austin, TX and I had been knee deep in the planning thrall of a 90th surprise party for my mother to be held CA in October, but it wasn't until late August did I realize the initial photographer referred to me had totally blown me off. I came across Thumbtack on the internet and thought to myself, why not give it a try. So I submitted my need and hoped for the best. From the moment Joe Tapia expressed interest in my event and we spoke over the phone for the first time, I knew my search was over. Joe Tapia was very professional and quite accommodating. He listened attentively to what I wanted and the objective for my event. He invited me to view his website and see the various photos he' taken. I was impressed. Joe Tapia Photography not only delivered great photos, but captured memories that we will cherish always. anyone looking for a great photographer for your event, please look up Jo Tapia Photography in Sacrament, trust me you will be very pleased. Thank you Joe Tapia Photography!!

Joe was our photographer for an event that we have in Sacramento. He was a great photographer and we received the photos in a timely manner.

Giving 5 Stars to Trendz Team Photography is not enough! Their work has been hands down the most amazing I've seen. As a little girl, you dream of your wedding and you can only hope to find a photographer that can capture those special moments. Working with Samantha and Bao made me forget about worries and realize this is the best day of my life. They went out of their way to work with us to create beautiful pictures for our wedding, and did it in a stress free way! We have found not only life time photographers for our family, but two life time friends. There's not enough words to say just how amazing Samantha and Bao are! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

I was very impressed by the quality of their work and professionalism and wanted to take the time to write this review. I’ve worked with many photographers over the years, but rarely have I run across the type of creativity and commitment to the project that they displayed. There work was fantastic and was featured in our February magazine edition. I recommend them highly and would hire again.

This is a review for video footage only. I loved my experience with Damian! He was very friendly, attentive to details, worked well with my photographer, punctual and was not at all a distraction to my big day. He & his team were amazing at being discrete in getting their footage! He got the shots he needed & reassured me that the footage he got was more than enough he needed to make a good film!

Warren is an amazing photographer! We contacted him very last minute for senior portraits and he was able to meet with us three days later! He is very passionate in his work and is truly talented. We wanted to shoot with nature as our background as he was willing to drive almost an hour to shoot at the park we loved. As a client, he made me feel comfortable and made the overall experience fun. He didn't rush anything and made sure we got a variety of poses and backgrounds. After the shoot, he was quick to follow up and and show us all of the pictures. Since he is also a graphics designer, he also edited a few pictures for us! I would highly recommend Warren Hearl Photography to anyone looking for a photographer, he is great and can do almost anything with his photo and graphics skills!

Julie is an amazing photographer and her photo editing skills are very impressive as well! She has the ability to produce high quality photographs that carry a professional and natural energy to them. She's been taking photos for me professionally for about 4 years now. She was a big help to my student run publication that I ran in high school known as Titan Times the Magazine. Her amazing work was published in several issues of our paper, and it even got us high ranking awards from The Columbia Scholastic Press Association (of Columbia University), as well as the National Scholastic Press Association, including several Gold Crown awards as well as multiple Pacemaker awards (aka the Nobel Prize of student journalism). She trained me in photo editing and photography, along with several other members on the magazine staff, and I could without a doubt say that I wouldn't be where I am today without her. She is really one of a kind!
