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.

Nabor Godoy did a great job--from photo direction to photo retouching. We got some outstanding photos out of an hour photo shoot. Nabor is a true professional and very easy to work with.

Lawrence Gerald provided an excellent service and at a reasonable price. He was timely, professional, and proved to be very skilled at what he does. The photos were amazing and he even threw in a slide show, which was equally great. I would highly recommend Lawrence to anyone looking for a professional photographer for whatever event. No complaints whatsoever.

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.

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.

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.

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

Best photographer!!!! She was early to the venue and stayed until the very end. Knew exactly what to do for all the big wedding moments and directed us perfectly with what we were suppose to do and how our pictures would turn out great. We haven't seen the pictures yet so I can't comment on that but if it was anything like her great energy and enthusiasm I'm sure they will be excellent!!! I would hire her again in a heartbeat!

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/

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.

Working with Nico has been great. His work ethic is very good, always seeking to get things done. He stays focused and on task with our assignments, allowing business to flow as it should. When a hurdle is encountered, he uses his background in customer service coupled with his experience as a professional photographer, to find the best possible solution to the problem. Nico's passion for his personal craft is exemplified through all that he does in the workplace.

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

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
