Awesome...and...Awesome ! Both working with Brian and his pictures! Brian is the nicest, most easy-going guy and everyone loved him! He came to the venue the day before the wedding and we talked about the different photo op locations and ideas my daughter had. He was open to whatever we wanted, very flexible and hard working. He had to go up and down the mansion stairs multiple times to capture both the girls getting ready upstairs and the groomsmen downstairs. He was all over the place! He fit right in with all of us, and I felt like we'd known him for years! He stayed working for as long as we needed to get all of the events recorded and never missed a beat (or shot)! His rate for the day was very very reasonable for the amount of work he did and while processing time for all of the pics (over a 1000) will take several weeks, he was able to upload up a generous number of shots highlighting the whole day to a website for viewing and downloading within about a week! And his pictures are truly amazing! He captured so much love and happiness in everything and everyone! I'm so happy we chose Brian to shoot my daughter's wedding and can't recommend him enough to anyone looking for a wedding photographer! He just the right person for the job. Hands down. I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures and we'll definitely use him again for any other big photography events!

Larry is the best wedding photographer. We highly recommend him. He came to the venue 2 hours before the guests arrived. He coved all parts of our wedding. He even came back for a photoshoot after our wedding to ensure we get the best photographs. We are so glad we choose him.

Kuks did the most incredible job shooting photos for my best friend's very private rooftop wedding. The photos came out beautifully and perfectly captured the magic of the event. The whole experience was totally relaxed and natural-we never felt like we were 'posing for the camera'. He was able to catch such sweet intimate moments of the ceremony completely candidly. I am so glad that I have his contact info for future events and I will absolutely recommend him to my friends for their photography needs. 5 stars!

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.

Stavan and his team were the photographers and videographer at our wedding a couple of weeks ago in Gilroy CA. They were reliable, energetic, personable, very creative and professional in every way. The showed us on time. Every guest was impressed how approachable they were. We can't wait to see the photos! My wife is counting down the dates to get the pictures and I feel sure they are going to amaze us! I will return with more reviews after we get the pictures and videos.

I got my sister an engagement style shoot in sanfrancisco as a part of her wedding present. I wasn't sure if she would like it (she isnt really that into pictures) but I am so happy that I did. They said that they had an absolutely amazing experience and that Andrea is literally the nicest most awesome photographer in the world. She brought champagne made the experience special, hung out with them, made them feel relaxed, took 2 hours of amazing photos at multiple locations, and then even gave them a lovely restaurant recommendation and then checked in after to see if they liked with. She was easy to work with, super helpful in arranging and planning everything, and a very fair price. Thanks Andrea!

Patrick was our wedding photographer, and he went above and beyond for us in too many ways to list. He was professional, hardworking and thoughtful in every way, disappearing into the background yet catching so many amazing moments throughout the evening. Patrick is not your traditional wedding photographer, but that was not what we were looking for. His work speaks for itself, and we recommend him highly.

Eric and his lighting assistant, Claire, did an AMAZING job at my recent wedding on February 17, 2018 at the Elks Lodge in South San Francisco! I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone in search of a local photographer. Amidst wedding planning and looking at expenses, my now husband and I, finally decided that we should have a photographer after all. We were nervous about prices, and after contacting many other photographers, we felt that it might be out of our desired budget. I came across Thumbtack on Facebook, and requested photography services. Eric contacted me within minutes, and quickly followed up via email and later phone. He was super easy to work with, creative, and really had a great vision for what we wanted captured on our special day. He also offered an incredibly reasonable price for all that he offers. He helped put our minds at ease, and assisted us with coming up with a tentative schedule that ended up working effortlessly. He is very great at giving direction when taking photos, and makes everyone feel comfortable. He is also great at working with other vendors, as he worked very well with our DJ to coordinate our evening's events. I couldn't be happier with the "Quick Peek" that he sent me a few days later, and am incredibly excited to see the rest! The photos are beautiful! Thank you so much, Eric and Claire for providing us with such wonderful memories! http://www.npointphoto.com/Clients/Current-Clients/Nicole-and-Rene-Wedding-Quick-Peek/

Cheshire is a must hire! Very pleasant to work with, and delivers perfect images very fast and affordable. I have never had a photo shoot run so smoothly and get the (product) shots I need super fast. I love his studio too! He is pure awesomeness, offering a full package for all your photography needs. He is also a graphic artist, which I think is quite valuable in conveying a message in images.

We hired Usman for both our wedding photographer and videographer in March 2017. From the very first meeting he not only saw our vision but he walked us through the entire process. Even before our wedding day I knew we made the right choice. On our wedding day Usman and his wife blended in perfectly and captured exactly what we wanted. I highly recommend him, you will not be disappointed.

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!

I hired Jason to photograph a 50th wedding anniversary party and the process couldn’t have been easier. Jason was quick to send a quote/samples of his work and answer any questions I had. He showed up on time and was very professional. The party was Sunday afternoon and by Wednesday morning I had access to all the photos he took. Once I finish going through them and let him know which we choose he will do any touch-up necessary and get them back to me. His pricing was very reasonable, the pictures look great, and his service professional. I wasn’t sure if we should hire a photographer but am so glad we did; the photos will provide a wonderful memory of a wonderful celebration Thank you Jason!
