This photographer is very professional and great at making his subject feel at ease and comfortable. Mr. Sparks took the time to allow the subject to make choices without stress or the feeling of being rushed. This photographer showed pride in his work and places his customers first. Mr. Sparks overall even with all the years of experience exhibits an immense love for his work and for his subjects that the goal is as close to perfection as he can offer to his clients.

Highly recommended! Thomas is a very capable and professional photographer who took great professional pictures of me. I've gotten a ton of compliments on the pictures and am very pleased with how they turned out. He was also very easy to work with, punctual, and a great editor. Bottomline: He knew how to make me look good!

Didn't know what to expect from a freelance phographer, but Diana was very professional and so easy to work. My daughter is very shy and these were her Senior portraits and Diana made Sara so comfortable and it showed on her face. Her smiles were genuine. I thought it went very well. When we saw the final pictures, we were very pleased. We would definitely refer her to our family and friends!

Anthony did a great job! Called on Monday and he was out by Tuesday and I had pictures by Tuesday evening. The pictures came out great - he mentioned he didn't like the shading on the outside pictures and said he was going to go retake those the next day. I thought they were fine - glad we have such a great photographer in town. Jenny Smith - Keller Williams

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!!***

From our initial conversation to the finished product, my experience with William was exceptional. Our family and friends wanted to capture photos while we were all in town together celebrating my birthday at a winery two days after Christmas. William was more than willing to work with us and our need for portraits, candids, and shots of our beautiful surroundings, and he went above and beyond to accommodate us over the holidays. William was very helpful during the planning stages and responsive via e-mail, text, and phone. During our first phone call, he answered all of my questions and helped me fine tune what I was looking for. After our second phone conversation, he provided an easy to digest contract and we solidified plans. William arrived at the winery a half an hour early and picked out a perfect spot for us to gather the family together. He offered great direction while also letting us do our own thing and was very good-natured, laid back, and easy to work with in response to our many special requests. We had a blast for the first half hour of our hour-long session getting together and posing and then almost didn't notice his presence while he took candids for the second half hour. William delivered tons of stunning photographs just five days later (on New Year's Day!). He captured everything we were looking for, from friends catching up down to the smallest details. His experience as a street photographer really shows--he snapped memories and milliseconds at just the right moment and had an eye for things I didn't even think to ask for. William created an online album for us and we are able to download or order prints. He has kindly offered to make additional edits or black and white copies at our request. I have already highly recommended William to several of my Bay Area friends and cannot say enough good things about the great value of my experience!

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!

William was great to work with - I had a last minute photography need for an upscale corporate event we were hosting in San Francisco. I'm based out of NYC and would not be onsite, but going into the event I felt confident William understood what we were looking for and would be able capture the event appropriately without me being present. His turnaround time was incredible, and the photos turned out great. I would definitely recommend William to anyone looking for a photographer in San Francisco!

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!

I hired Jerome from Photos With a Flair for my husbands 40th birthday party. Hiring a photography was a somewhat last minute idea I had thinking it would be a very convenient final touch to capture the memories of the evening. This was my first time using Thumbtack or hiring a photographer for that matter and I can honestly say it was a wonderful experience all the way around! Jerome was truly a pleasure to work with and we appreciated everything he had to offer from his professionalism to his insightfulness to his personable demeanor. I would recommend Jerome from Phots With a Flair to anyone and everyone looking to hire a photographer to any special event, big or small. I know I will definitely be hiring him again in the future:)! Thank you for a wonderful experiance and for all of our amazing photos Jerome!!!

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. He took the time to get our input of what my sister and I wanted, and delivered on our vision. Thank you again, Mr. Gibson for the excellent service you provided to us. We will most definitely request your services for any events we should need a photographer.

The week of my wedding, the original photographer backed out on the job. So, with only a week notice I was able to hire Photos With a Flair. I was so grateful he was available and at a reasonable rate. Mr. Gibson was very professional and captured all the photos I wanted, including "The First Look". With his services, a photo album was included. The album was done very well and great quality. I'm extremely happy with his work and I would highly recommend this company to anyone.

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!!

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!

Warren is an awesome photographer. He was professional and ensured that I had a good time in my photo shoot. More importantly, he was able to produce beautiful head shots. The only reason why I gave him 4 stars instead of 5, was because he did not have a studio. Nevertheless, shooting outdoors was an acceptable alternative.

I hired Damian and his team for my wedding day. From the moment I found him on Thumbtack to the very day I received my video, he has been extremely responsive and professional. My wedding was during the Christmas season, yet Damian and his team worked with us in the cold, freezing weather. He made it work just to give my husband and I what we wanted. I just received my video and it brought me to tears. He captured moments I didn't even know existed. My mind was everywhere that night and to get to watch it all on video truly brings me to tears. I cannot express how grateful I am for Damian and his team for making our special day one we will never forget. Thank you so much, Damian!

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!
