Albert is a wonderful photographer. I love the pictures he took of our concert last night. He captured the mood beautifully. I will definitely use him again.

Great experience from scheduling through receiving the photos. I could not be happier with the quality of the results. In fact, someone endorsed me for "portrait photography" on LinkedIn - how is that for an endorsement?

I was looking for an affordable, no frills, family photographer-- I received 10 bids thru thumbtack, and Lawrence's bid was LESS than 1/3 the cost of the others-- PLUS he gave us the DVD with all the prints (most photographers will only allow you to order prints thru them). He scouted out a location, met us the day after Christmas, and had our photos ready on DVD the very next day. I highly recommend him for anyone looking for high quality, basic family photos.

Brian and I worked together to create a portrait image for a tattoo magazine cover. There are many great shots and we had a fun time. I plan to hire Brian in the future as the need arises. He exceeded my expectations.

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.

I hired Jeff to photographed our 50th wedding anniversary celebration of 63 people. He discussed the event several times in advance. He arrived 30 minutes before the posed fmaily pictures were takes to set identify scenic background at winery in Napa and set up proper lighting for the scene which was heavely backlit. He took posed pictures of 11 family members in various groupings, informal pictures at reception and during dinner and at Renewal of Weddding Vow ceremony. Picture were very good- sharp and good lighting. He composed 3 different albums for members of the family and was very quick in re-arranging the order of the pictures and making requested edit. . He was very professional to work with and guests enjoyed having him take their picture. He was very prompt ( within 3 days) in posting on his website a gallery of about 100 pictures of the event, which guests can review , download and order prints. He completed composing 3 different albums in 10 days. I was very pleased and recommend Jeff for event photography.

I recently moved to California from Toronto, Ontario. My fiancee (now husband) is native Californian so I moved here to be with him. I arrived in May and we set a wedding date for August. For me it was going to be a big challenge moving from one city to another and having to plan a wedding. I found the website thumbtack.com, and this is where I found Martino. After reading all of his reviews, and looking at his work on his website, I decided to give him a call. Martino called me back immediately and was very friendly and professional. At first I just wanted his services for 2 hours, and after thinking about it, I decided that I wanted to hire him for 4 hours. I felt that Marino was EXTREMELY flexible in extending the time frame AND his price was phenomenal. I did a lot of research on photographers in the Bay area, and we almost decided not to hire a photographer. While I was on the phone with Martino, we dicussed what kinds of photos I wanted. (Portrait, candid, etc etc) and he was so accommodating because there were a few shots that I was ADIMATE on him taking (when my husband saw me for the first time in my dress, cake cutting) and he was assuring me that he would take these photos. (By the way, they he stayed true to his word and gave me all the photos that I asked him for and they are just beautiful). On the day of the wedding, he was on the ball. He was there right when he said he would be. He was extremely friendly and really got to know and talk to all of my guests. (I had a small wedding with 45 people) I got married at the Cliff House in San Francisco so having pictures with the ocean was the most important. Although it was EXTREMELY windy, Martino worked some Beautiful photography magic and the photos came out better than I could possibly imagine. The finished product were just beautiful and I Thank you Martino for all of your hard work on our wedding. Now we can re-live the day over with all of your beautiful photos.

Andrea did an incredible job photographing my 3-day business seminar called PleasureCEO Live! She worked well within the setting, and managed to capture some precious moments that I can now use well in my marketing materials. I myself am a professional portrait photographer so my standards are quite high, and I highly recommend Andrea for your events!

Eric did a fantastic job capturing my portrait photos around San Francisco area. Right from corresponding with me for choosing the best locations to building a strong theme for my shoot, Eric was very patient and paid close attention to detail. I highly recommend scheduling any of your photoshoots with him because he is willing to go above and beyond to offer you the best output. His knowledge of SF is reflected in his ability to identify ideal locations for different occasions. I can vouch that you'll be more than satisfied by his excellent work.

Fashion photography. Cheshire photographed my styling event at the Trina Turk boutique with the Burlingame Mother's club. He did an amazing job of capturing the clothing and models in a their best light. The group shots of the ladies having fun were the best. The mother's club is going to be so happy to have them. Cheshire was professional, fun to work with, and did a great job. I am looking forward to working with him again for fashion photography projects!

Tri was exceptionally easy to work with, talented, and generous with his time, both in shooting and in retouching. I was looking for a mix of headshots/portraits: something professional, something fun, something that would display youthful charm and something that would display maturity without being stiff. I got exactly what I was looking for, and Tri even encouraged my dad to join in and took some great father/son shots. I am doing a variety of media appearances and speaking engagements, and I feel like I have enough of a variety to choose a portrait that would work for any different kind of engagement, as well as for my social media accounts. I would highly recommend Tri to anyone looking for an incredible portrait from a photographer that will really take the time to get to know you and deliver photos that capture your personality and essence.

Alex IS AMAZING!!! Talented, patient, soft spoken, flexible and super creative. We are not much of a photogenic people on the first place, and my husband doesn't really like to take pictures. But our photos turned out better than we hoped every single time! And we are so happy that we've created wonderful memories to look back at thanks to Alex. From lovebirds photo shoot to maternity, to baby pictures and family portraits, Alex was able to capture incredible moments and details. And he is so good with capturing kids! Those moments of sweet smiles and silly giggles that you can almost hear through the picture are priceless. We had wonderful time every time we took pictures, I don't think there was a single photo we didn't love. I can't say enough of how happy we are to have Alex as our photographer. Now with another baby coming up in super exited and can't wait to create more memories. I would highly recommend Alex! You will not be disappointed!

Planning a wedding is stressful enough, but not knowing what the results are from the vendors you choose can bring the plans to a standstill. That's where I was before finding Jenn on thumbtack. When she replied to my photography request it was not the estimate that made up my mind; it was the fact that she answered my call! After the first two minutes speaking with her, I knew I found my photographer. Jenn was very upfront with what I could expect from her for the price she was offering. There was nothing that she didn't cover in terms of her contract, the deposit, and the final product. I liked Jenn from the very first moment I spoke with her. Every step of the way she worked with me either by telephone or email. I was fortunate enough that our schedules allowed for a site visit where we had the opportunity to meet in person prior to the big day. Jenn brought her camera and took some "test" shots that she posted on her blog. All I can say is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! Now I was excited for the wedding day! September 3rd finally arrived and I am still bragging to anyone willing to listen about my awesome photographers. Jenn and Shannon were truly a dream to work with. They are super relaxed and not worried about the "perfect picture" but photographing the perfect moment. Jenn and Shannon let my hubby and I call all the shots as far as who and where. Our families were a bit difficult to gather at times, and I worried this could irritate the photographers; not Jenn and Shannon! They made sure that we did not miss our sunset photos and always asked our thoughts on their creative visions. Every once in awhile, Jenn would give me a sneak peek at an amazing shot she just captured! I loved that about her. Anyone thinking of hiring Kept in Time Photography by Jenn & Shannon Mormon will not be disappointed. Their photos are stunning and they are two of the nicest people to work with. I am more than satisfied with the entire experience and will be using them for all future photography needs. Highly recommended by a very happy Bride!!

I had the pleasure to have Ananda taking our engagement and wedding pictures.. She is so pleasant to deal with. She is talented and has a good eye. it rained on my wedding day and we had to move everything indoors and it was a bit hectic like any other wedding. So because the photos were all taken indoors ,they were not as crisp and sharp as I wanted them to be ,so Ananda ,being the nice pleasant person that she is offered to take our portrait pictures later on for no extra charge. She is personal,nice,very understanding,and above all very talented.. and it was a pleasure working with her. I would highly recommend her for any event !

We hired Larry for our company event, he is very responsible, provides great work with excellent price. A lot of other photographers will try make extra by not providing a full service, with him all the planning and post editing are included. Larry is also great that when we were setting up the venue, he arrived early to help, as well as staying late to help us clean up. Great guy!

I needed some head shots for my new website featuring my latest music. Scott recommend a spot for outdoor pictures incorporating an urban feel. Never would have thought use such a simple but clever cityscape backdrop. Not only does he have a great eye and creative idea's but also top end equipment. I've used other photographers before with half the results. If your looking for a pro he's your guy.......
