Albert took my profile photos and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a profile photographer. He was very professional and very easy to work with. The photos far exceeded my expectation, and the price was relatively friendly.

Clearlight Video & Photography captured the best of my wedding. Lawrence is professional, kind, outgoing, curious, thoughtful, and takes the initiative to get the perfect shot. He calmly and tactfully directed our guests into the frame to get all the compositions we asked for (and more). Lawrence has a natural ability to capture real emotion and personality from strangers, such that many of our best photos are his candids. Moreover, all of our guests complimented us on his professionalism, friendliness, and ability to get people in the shot to compose good images. Lawrence was easy to work with throughout the process. We negotiated a price easily, even though my situation was fairly unique. Lawrence also allowed me access to his RAW files, something many photographers refuse to do. When I was unable to transfer the files to my computer after the event, Lawrence made additional arrangements to ensure I received them. Lawrence even continued to work on some of my images after the event had completed and he had been paid in full, sending me his alterations gratis. In sum, I speak for all of my guests in saying we were incredibly impressed with Lawrence's work. Measured by quality, I can see the services of Clearlight Video & Photography easily costing in excess of $2,000, especially in the Bay Area. I consider Lawrence's photography services to be the best bargain of my wedding, and give him my highest recommendation.

Amazing time with Michael Keel. His quality and work ethic are second to none. Comparable price to most high quality photographers. Professional in all the right sense. We would book him for any other event should we need professional photography done. Legit, thanks Michael.

Diane was wonderful. She photographed my daughter's wedding in Santa Cruz, CA. When I first contacted her she was very professional and extremely friendly and took the time to answer all of my questions. The few times I needed to contact her prior to the wedding she responded very quickly. On the wedding day she was on time and again very professional. The guests and our family members liked her very much as she was polite and blended very nicely with the group, never getting in the way. Most importantly the bride and groom really liked her and were very glad that she was my choice. She made them feel very comfortable. I received the pictures very quickly and they are beautiful. Everyone loves them and I look at them almost every day. So excited to get prints made. The price was very reasonable and I feel I definitely got my money's worth and then some. I highly recommend Diane and hopefully can work with her again some time. Lorraine Eugene, OR

Jennifer was the best photographer and witness my husband and I could have wished for. My husband and I got eloped at the San Francisco City Hall in February 2017. Jen was our photographer and sole witness. She was very helpful in guiding us around the city hall and she took the most beautiful and sincere pictures! My husband and I aren't very "romantic" or extroverted, so we were worried that we'd be put in cheesy awkward poses for our wedding pictures. But that wasn't the case at all! Jen was able to pick up on our personalities very quickly and she was able to feature the real us through her camera lens. Her experience, professionalism, and down to earth personality relaxed our wedding jitters and made us completely at ease. She was the perfect complement to our wedding day. I highly recommend Jen for any event :)

Ahhhh, I absolutely love our photos! Andrea photographed our daughter's first birthday party. She was an absolute pro, on time, low maintenance, sleuth-y. :) The images are amazing and she gave us soooo many. (So often photographers only give 10-20 as part of the rate, but Andrea shared over 200 with us.) She was lovely, talented, and responsible. I would hire her again and so should you!

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/

We put on corporate events in cities across the country and having high-quality photos is critical to our business. For the past two years we've had the pleasure of working with Cheshire on several occasions and he's by far one of the best photographers we've worked with. We are most impressed with his ability to capture the spirit and energy of our events with great attention to detail. We have no doubt that you'll have a great experience working with Cheshire!

Tri has been a really great partner on a number of projects. He is thorough, detail oriented, flexible, and really easy to work with. He is a skilled photographer and able to really hone in on the mood that you are trying to evoke. Beyond photography Tri has also started managing our social media accounts which are growing exponentially since he's taken them over. I would highly recommend him.

The event for which I hired him was a surprise and he showed up early and was ready to go right when I needed him. The pictures he took were very high quality though there were some instances where better angles could have been used - only minor flaws though. All in all, I would recommend him if you’re looking for a punctual photographer that will produce high quality photos for a reasonable price

Had an excellent experience with Michelle! She was quite patient, helpful and you can tell she’s passionate and serious about her work. Michelle went above and beyond to make sure I got plenty of great photos to pick from and worked with me to come up with creative ideas for my 30 birthday photos. She will certainly be the photographer I call on for future events, etc. !
