Eric and Claire were a delight to have as our photographers. Each time we spoke with Eric, he came prepared with ideas on locations. Before the actual day, he scouted out additional locations. We liked his work which is why we picked him. But, our wedding was on Saturday and we've already seen some samples, and we love, love what we've seen so far. Eric is professional, accommodating and his passion for his work is apparent. Even our guests enjoyed his presence at the wedding. We couldn't be happier with our experience of working with him.

Usman took pictures for us at our SF City Hall Civil Ceremony and we couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. This was my first time using Thumbtack and I wasn't sure of the process or exactly what to expect, but was extremely pleased with the outcome and how easy it was. As a photographer, Usman was truly a pleasure to work with - he knew the City Hall civil ceremony process and made everything easy for us and a lot of fun. We loved his professional yet laid back style and it made us feel very comfortable and at ease in front of the camera (something that we weren't used to). From getting the quote, arranging details, payment, etc. everything was efficient and fast, but also very well done. He knew the best spots in and around City Hall for pictures - and I couldn't believe how many we were able to take in just an hour with him. We received the retouched photos very quickly (in less than a week!) via Dropbox and absolutely LOVE them. He did an amazing job! We would definitely work with Usman again and will certainly recommend him to our friends and family. Thank you Usman for capturing our day so perfectly! It was a pleasure to have you be a part of it. Thank you!

Wendy was amazing. She was there to help all my guest during my event and made all the pictures fun and easy! I highly recommend LuvlyProduction for any event and I will most definitely hire them again. The photo booth was amazing! Great job.

The pictures are so natural, the video is also very nice to have, I did things I do not remember and the video is a great thing for my kids and grand kids to see. Thank you for being very considerate on the price and and thank you for staying later than planed. I would totally recommend you to be the photographer for any event. My family was impressed on how much energy and dedication you put in while taking all pictures and also ensuring that you were taking all requests from many people. You made a diffidence taking pictures of one of the my most important events of my life. Thank you so much:) Gecsabel Bardales

Andrea served as event photographer for my baby shower at the Orinda Country Club. She was on time, very professional and very easy to work with. She sent over a sample photo, which will serve as my picky sister's holiday card photo. Seriously this says a lot! I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures from the event but know they will be beautiful! Highly recommend working with Andrea

Jeff was a true professional, arrived on time, dressed appropriately, was unobtrusive and polite. He checked in with me throughout the gig to determine where and who from our conference event needed to be captured on film. The resulting photographs were wonderful, a fabulous gallery of shots to choose from - relaxed and candid conversations, complimentary portraits of speakers and guests, beautifully focused. An extremely fast turnaround (less than 12 hours!) I'd highly recommend Jeff if you're looking for a professional event photographer. I feel lucky to have found him here on thumbtack.

Event Photography I needed a last minute shoot for my friends civil ceremony. Matthew did an awesome job at the event. He was punctual, friendly, professional and very easy to work with. He brought many ideas to the table and gave very clear directions on what he believed would look best. His personality made the entire shoot very enjoyable and fun.

Ashleigh is a true professional. In the two hours we had her, she captured all the requested shots plus many impromptu special moments. Her personality and kindness is what separates her from other photographers I have worked with in the past. Many friends and family members commented on her cheerfulness and smile. Her photos are as beautiful as she is. We all enjoyed having her here on our special day. I would hire Ashleigh again for any corporate or private function that I have in the future.

Jen was a pleasure to work with and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a great Bay Area photographer. She knew her way around city hall and the civic ceremony process, which helped calm our nerves. Her directions during the photo shoot were clear, helpful, fun, and gentle. She is fantastic! Thank you so much, Jen.

Rucha was very patient with me and fun to work with. I absolutely LOVED how the photos she took of me turned out. I got them back quickly, too. She was a very polite and professional photographer, not like most you'd meet.

He did an amazing job photographing our outdoor wedding. He captured so many special moments without even being noticed. Even during the first look he managed to get so many angles and close-ups while still making us feel like we were completely alone. The photographs themselves are a work of art. Often times photographers just take millions of pictures but it's obvious that for him every single picture matters and although in the end you'll get maybe 1k instead of 3k pictures, you'll want to frame all of them instead of having to sort through the millions to find a few gems. He has a unique style and seems to truly care about the work he produces. He's also very personable and great at rallying the relatives for the big family photos - somehow remembering everyone's names in the process. And to top all of this off, he sent us all of the photographs within 3 weeks of our wedding date!! 2 thumbs up!!!!!

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.
