Needed Albert for a quick shoot after a previous photographer double booked. He was on time, professional, and accommodating under the last minute circumstances. Albert was super friendly, understanding and turned around project within a day (smaller project). I was overall impressed.

(SPANISH BELOW) I want to highly recommend Nabor for your next photography project. I was contacted by my book editor asking for a head sot for my next novel. I live in Petaluma, CA and after looking at the rates of local photographers I tried this website. I obtained several bids and since I know very little about photography I asked my son for his opinion (he does photography for fun). After looking at the work of the people who sent bids he advised me that Nabor's work was the best "hands down". I negotiated with Nabor and he traveled to Petaluma to take the photos. We met early in the morning and when I got there he was already waiting for me. I was immediately impressed with his professional demeanor and flexibility. We walked around town and he knew exactly where the right background was. I knew then I was working with an artist. The love for his work is apparent in the photos he took. He got it right from the third photo but went on to take 191 photos!!!. The difficult part for me has been having to decide on just one photo. Nabor is definitely the best photographer I have ever worked with. There is something else beautiful about Nabor and that is that his first language is Spanish which is also my first language. It was truly a pleasurable experience to collaborate with someone passionate about his work. His photo will be a blessing to my novel. Thank you Nabor. (IN SPANISH) Quiero recomendar altamente Nabor para su próximo proyecto de fotografía. Mi editor de libros me pidió una fotografía reciente y profesional para mi próxima novela. Yo vivo en Petaluma, California, y después de mirar los precios de fotógrafos locales decidí probar este sitio web. Obtuve una serie de ofertas y puesto que sé muy poco acerca de la fotografía le pregunté a mi hijo su opinión (él hace la fotografía por diversión). Después de ver el trabajo de las personas que enviaron las propuestas mi hijo me aconsejó que el trabajo de Nabor era el mejor "sin comparación". Negocié con Nabor y viajó a Petaluma para tomar las fotos. Nos encontramos temprano en la mañana y cuando llegué ya me estaba esperando. Me impresionó inmediatamente su profesionalismo y su flexibilidad. Caminamos por el pueblo y él eligió el escenario perfecto para las fotos, sin durarlo mucho. Entonces supe que estaba trabajando con un artista. El amor por su trabajo es evidente en las fotos que tomó. Desde la tercera foto ya había cumplido con su encomienda y sobrepasado mi expectativa, pero siguió trabajando hasta tener ¡ 191 fotos !!!. La parte difícil para mí ha sido decidir en una sola foto. Nabor es sin duda el mejor fotógrafo con quien he trabajado. Hay algo todavía más bello de Nabor y es que su primer idioma es el español, que también es mi primera lengua. Fue realmente una experiencia agradable colaborar con alguien apasionado por su trabajo. Su foto será una bendición para mi novela. Gracias Nabor.

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.

I’m not sure I will be able to fully express what an incredible photographer Michael is. My sister found him through internet search for my (surprise) engagement in Napa. She had a few photographers in mind; however, she was most impressed by Michael’s professionalism, prompt response and flexibility…. and of course AMAZING photography portfolio – as are my fiancé and I! Firstly, he is a laid back person that exudes positive energy, which definitely helped my fiancé and I be more playful during the photo session. Since we were visitors, he chose the location, which was both beautiful and convenient for us. Michael was also flexible to change the session time, an absolute brilliant idea because the photos came out phenomenal – romantic, artistic, just perfect!! Michael, thank you so much for spending the afternoon with us and I look forward to have you as our wedding photographer, maternity and whatever wonderful, memorable events we may have in the near future. If you’ve read other review, you probably know that Michael Keel is the best but just in case you have second thoughts because you want your photos to be the absolute best, let me reassure you : get Michael, you won’t regret it !!

My husband and I needed a photographer that had the patience to capture a great photo of us and our 6 dogs. We've done this before with other photographers and we know what a challenge it is getting all 6 to behave and look at the camera at the same time. As predicted it did have it's chaotic moments. But Michael just kept shooting and telling us it was all fine, which put me at ease and captured some fun moments. Even when one of our dogs took off (our fault) Michael put down his camera and took off after him, and brought him back to finish the shoot. The photos were very artistically done with this cool 60's effect. Not sure how he did it but we loved it because it was very different from other photos we have. He also did some lovely B&W's which are begging to be made into an iPhoto booklet. We even blew up our favorite and had it canvas wrapped to hang in our office at home. I would recommend Michael Keel Photography for any type of photo shoot knowing you will get something artistically beautiful and maybe a little unexpected.

I had a trip planned with my now fiance and her friends to Napa Valley this past weekend. (February 26, 2016) I searched through Thumbtack and chose Cindy based off her website, photos, and reviews from others. She drove 150 miles round trip for the shoot as well! (thanks again Cindy!) No one had a single negative thing to say about Cindy and I now know why. She showed up to the winery in Napa early and coordinated the surprise engagement shoot with the winery manager. She also did her homework and researched a couple places that she thought would be beautiful for the proposal. The actual time came for me to go on a walk and do it and she was super easy to work with. Best of all, she was so friendly and just so excited to be capturing a special moment in mine and my fiances lives. AMAZING how she was able to turn around the photos in a matter of 24 hours. I know some others have problems with getting their photos back after a long time, you will never have to worry about that with Cindy and she gets the job done as soon as she possibly can. Highly recommend using Cindy if you need a quality photographer and friendly person for your special occasion. My fiance is in love with the pictures and she touched them up so fast! She captured some amazing little moments that I will never forget thanks to her!

Thank you Cindy for fantastic wedding photos! My favorite part about working with Cindy is that she is professional. For me, this means several things: she was always timely with email responses throughout the process, she was prompt and ready on the day of, and her turn around time for the photos was super short! But the ultimate reason that Cindy is an amazing professional is that she is invisible! I have heard plenty of horror stories of photographers that drag the bride and groom away from the fun and make the occasion all about the pictures. Cindy was great at taking very little of our time to do couples shots. We were able to be completely present in the moment at all our events and Cindy captured them without us even knowing she was there. We have some excellent candids of friends and family as well as posed shots of the two of us. She stayed close at the beginning of the reception so that I could ask her for specific shots but she also wandered around and got a great picture of almost all 150 people at the event :) We are very happy with the pictures and the experience!

Sheila did a shoot for our nonprofit organization, Wish of a Lifetime, that grants life-enriching Wishes to senior citizens. This particular Wish was for a 90 year old WWII Paratrooper named James, who we sent from his home in Denton, TX to Napa Valley, CA to go wine tasting. James has overcome significant obstacles in his life and is facing serious health complications, but wine tasting is something that continues to provide him with an unmatched sensory experience. We reached out to photographers to document this special Veteran's Wish using Thumbtack, and Sheila responded almost immediately. The photos are incredible, and Sheila made friends with our Wish Recipient. Thanks to her, we now have photos to remember and share this unbelievable Wish. Thank you Sheila!

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".

Jeff photographed our son's 4th birthday party at Pump it Up. Jeff was very personable and was great with our son & guests. He got lots of great photos including action shots with low light settings. He makes the photos easy to access within a quick timeframe. My only advice with any photographer is to set your expectations in advance in order to share the same vision. We will definitely partner with Jeff Rumans again in the future for our photography needs!

Dan’s a trustworthy, easy-going, thoughtful photographer. Unlike my experience w/another Thumbtack photographer, you’re not going to get a long contract with a draconian set of requirements where essentially you don’t own the photos even though you’re paying for them. He just takes photos at his preferred outdoor location (extra cost for an alternative location), emails you the photos, edits a few based on your feedback, and sends an invoice.

Chantelle is AMAZING. You would be totally crazy not to pick her! First of all, she's hilarious and a blast to spend time with. Secondly, she has mad skills. I hired Chantelle for my wedding and did both a trial run and the day-of with her. I have NEVER felt so beautiful while still feeling like I looked like myself. The make-up lasted all day, I didn't break out (bonus points!) and my hair stayed perfect and bouncing. On top of all this, she's incredibly affordable, responds quickly to texts/email and shows up on time. I seriously couldn't be happier and now refuse to hire anyone else next time I need my face done ;-)

I highly recommend Patrick Power! I needed a professional portrait for a legal job application, and I hadn't had one taken in over 20 years. I wanted it to be professional, but also unique. I wasn't sure how to find a photographer, so I just put out a bid on thumbtack. Patrick responded very quickly and with a very reasonable price. I had resigned myself to just getting a studio portrait with a neutral background, but Patrick had the idea of meeting at City Hall to take the photo. I was very nervous and self-conscious about the process. I don't like having my picture taken and I am not very photogenic. It helped that City Hall was full of other photographers taking pictures of brides, grooms, and other people like me, so I didn't really stand out. I had a problem and ended up being pretty late to our meeting, but Patrick was very nice about it. I was sweating like crazy in my suit, but he did a good job of putting me at ease and letting me rest and cool down for a little bit white while he staked out spots to take the photo. He talked with me casually about what I was looking for in the photo, but we also made small talk about our lives and work, so that soon I felt very comfortable with him. As a result, I looked very natural in the photo. Patrick took a lot of shots, and several of them were quite good. I needed the work done on very short notice, including a print. I made the bid on a Sunday, we did the photo shoot on Monday, and I had the print by Tuesday morning. I love the photo, and my family and friends do too. Everyone agreed that not just my appearance, but also my personality comes through in the photo. I will definitely call Patrick again if I need another photo taken in the future!

In looking for a photographer for our wedding, our main goal was to find someone who could portray the events of the day as they were happening. We were less interested in formal photos and more interested in emotions and ambiance. Before the wedding, Patrick took the time to get to know us as a couple to better depict our relationship. He made a concerted effort to learn the names of our families, the bridal party, and even by the end of the night several of the guests. Patrick did a wonderful job capturing the special moments – a smile here, a look there – which allows us to look back on our pictures and relive the experience. As circumstances changed during the day, he improvised and provided us with a great final product. Overall, Patrick was very flexible and added an artistic touch to our wedding. We are thrilled with our pictures and would enthusiastically recommend him to couples interested in an experienced and inventive photographer who takes great pride in his work.

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 :)

ISDesigns (Ilja) created a Kickstarter video for The Egg (www.eggcyte.com). Prior to starting the project, Ilja worked with us on aligning expectations and generating a script. During the day of the shoot, Ilja was extremely patient with us and worked with us to capture the best possible material that he could then use to create the video. He then iterated through the video multiple times and also scheduled an additional video shoot because the video needed some additional footage to make it flow smoothly. Throughout the entire project, Ilja was nothing but professional. We wouldn't hesitate to use him again.

The images he creates, never cease to amaze me in quality and range, and in the creativity they display. He is great with his models, knowing just how to create that moment. Always getting the models, Hair & Make-up, stylists etc, to be at their very best. He also does his own retouching and imaging. This is the icing on the creative cake. He sees these images to completion, fulfilling the creative vision that he has at the onset of a shoot. Lets face it, anyone can retouch these days. But those photographers that can put that true creative polish on an shot, delivering an amazing image from the onset of a shoot to final art, are the best of the best. In my opinion, James is one of the very best.

Steve had a relaxed presence that put me at ease when arriving to the studio. The studio was small, but was the equipment was very nice. I utilized his services to get acting headshots, and before beginning to take the pictures, he had a handy book that visually showed how good and bad headshots look. He effectively guided me through various poses, and I had a lot of fun the whole time! Oh, and the photos looked fantastic in the end. Overall, what you'll get from working with Steve is a kind and talented photographer who'll make sure you're getting the bang for your buck.

Steve was great to work with. He had a medical emergency and had to reschedule our photography appointment, but was totally willing to let us find another photographer if we wanted. We were able to reschedule, and Steve drove about an hour to meet us and was there on time and ready to go. I'm quite pleased with the final photos.

Dennis is the most creative, artistic and nice photographer you will ever work with. Each one of his photos are a piece of art that you will treasure forever. He has a true talent that rarely exists in photographers, he can bring out the best in any format photo--dance portraits, family shots and professional pictures. The only hard part is choosing which photos you like best. He is so easy to work with and works day and night to get your order done right and on time. He is awesome!

Dennis is the consummate pro. I needed a headshot for my web site and saw that he was a leading member of Peter Hurley's Headshot Crew, a worldwide team of the best headshot photographers.

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!

Tri Nguyen is the absolute BEST in the business. I was deeply enamored by his work long before I was fortunate to cross paths with him. He is such a wonderful person, it is effortless to feel comfortable with him. It usually takes some warming up to connect with a new photographer to bring out such emotions for the shoot. This is definitely NOT the case with Tri. Tri has a unique talent & eye for capturing raw emotion which compliment his brilliant style perfectly. I am anxiously awaiting our 3rd shoot! Tri is the MAN!

We are very pleased with Cat's Lens Photography and would hire her again! Catherine took candid and posed photographs of our family in various settings, both indoors at our home in San Francisco and outdoors in the city. She was patient and kind with our 4-year old girl who got very comfortable with her. Throughout the photo shoot, she checked in with us often to ensure that our specific goals were being met. If we had a suggestion, an opinion, or wanted to try something different (and we often did), she was open to that. She is certainly a hardworking photographer, and one who can handle all sorts of lighting conditions - sunny, cloudy, indoors. We've selected our favorite photographs and have received the digital files promptly. At the time of this review, we have yet to print them out. Contact her - you won't be disappointed!

Catherine is an amazing photographer, we have hired many photographers before because my wife and me want to keep those memories for our children as much as we can. Among all photographers we have hired, Catherine is one of our favorites. She is kind, professional and very artistic. Catherine has even more patience than us with kids! All photos we received were just incredible! The light in the photo was so subtle and beautiful, which makes the photo have a texture of oil painting. We both love them so much and cannot wait to print them out and hang them on our new home's walls. I definitely would love to hire her again in the future and recommend her to my friends.

Sumit was amazing! About two weeks before my husband's 40th birthday party, I decided I'd like to hire a photographer to take photos at the dinner. I started searching the web, found thumbtack, and put in a request for a photographer. My husband always looks uncomfortable when a photographer is around, but I thought I'd give it a go so we could try to get some nice photos of the special day. I have to tell you that hiring Sumit was the best decision I made regarding the party planning. He captured very special moments including my husband walking into the party and meeting friends he had not seen in years. We also had a few impromptu speeches and Sumit captured the moment for us with each of those speeches. Sumit was so professional and helpful! He was very easy to work with and completely blended in during the party. His photos were excellent and truly captured the moment and emotions of the evening. Both his candid and group shots were phenomenal! I sent the guests a link to view the photos and several people commented on what a great job the photographer did. Seriously- I've previously sent professional family shots from other photographers to my friends and family, and this is the first time people emailed me to say how good a job the photographer did in capturing a moment. I would definitely recommend Sumit, and from now on he will be my go-to guy for professional photos in the future!

He showed up right on time and brought all of his equipment to our office to set up a mobile studio. The whole process was much easier than I imagined. Sumit makes people feel comfortable and that shows in the photos. We are very pleased with the results. He is a true professional and I highly recommend him.

I hired Nicholas to film my Hindu wedding on a Sunday morning at Livermore two months ago. He was punctual and professional, ready with all his equipment in tow. Since there's no rehearsal for a Hindu wedding, I myself wasn't sure where he needs to stand or even go, but Nicholas was able to figure it out once in the event hall. After two weeks, we received the hard drive that held all the raw, unedited footage which is what I wanted and downloaded it onto our external drive. This took awhile for my husband and I to do, but Nicholas was extremely patient with us and reassured me it was okay to take our time. Once every clip was downloaded, my husband and I watched the unedited footage and relived our wedding day through Nicholas' eyes and filming, and it brings tears to our eyes to see the close-up of our expressions, the traditional clothing we wore, and marriage items on the stage. Nicholas also surprised us with still photos of our day even if he wasn't our paid photographer. In addition, the email and texting communication between Nicholas from start to end was prompt, and he was enthusiastic about filming his first Hindu wedding. I am also grateful that Nicholas worked within our budget and stayed the entire day from 9-2pm; he works for the passion of filming, and the money is secondary and I appreciated that commitment. He simply wants everything to be perfect for the bride and groom, and stress-free which it was. I would highly recommend future customers to hire Nicholas to film their special milestones in their lives.

He has always been professional, polite, and friendly. He got along great with our photographer.

I have worked with William for years, creating photographic projects that present sides of public safety (law enforcement, fire, EMS, etc.) that the public rarely sees. We have done collaborative work with multiple branches of the military, with local, state, and federal governmental groups, and with the private sector. I have always found him to be a consummate professional. He is never intrusive or confrontational, yet he always seems to be in the right place at the right time, to get the perfect images. He is able to somehow know what is about to happen, and positions himself perfectly in time to capture the action without interfering in the action. His editing skills takes great images and makes them breathtaking. He finds ways to bring out the key elements in his subjects, that allow the images to speak volumes, subtly. He has been able to adjust his time tables, to meet every deadline that I have demanded, and his final products have always been exactly what I was looking for, wanted, and needed. I couldn't find enough words to describe how rewarding it has been, to work with him. Without question, he will be my go-to photographer for any future projects. You couldn't do any better, with someone else. Guaranteed.

Alex photographed our newborn son, and my wife and I are eternally grateful that he did. We will cherish these images forever. Alex arrived on time and immediately got to work. He made our family feel at ease with his presence and more importantly the camera's presence. He was quick to capture the often fleeting expressions of our newborn and was very respectful of our sons safety and comfort in composing shots. The digital images were promptly delivered to us and my wife and I were amazed at the quality. Being a great photographer requires both mastering the technical aspects of photography, including the hardware and lighting, and also the presence of a creative vision, or minds eye. Alex possesses both of these qualities in abundance, but most importantly he has the people skills to allow his subjects to relax in front of the camera. We are eternally grateful to have the images Alex produced and they could not have better captured this special moment in our young family's life. Thank you Alex. Highly recommended.

Rachel was amazing! I've had pictures taken several times before, and every time I received pictures that either weren't flattering (I don't think I'm a very photogenic person) or they didn't capture my personality. From the beginning, Rachel worked hard to make sure that this project would be everything I wanted out of a photoshoot! I didn't have a clear image of what I wanted to do, so we went over the style of pictures I wanted, she scoped out a few locations for photos that captured what I was describing, and she helped me conceptualize how exactly I wanted to dress for the pictures. It really felt like she captured every element of my personality in her pictures. Rachel was amazing during the photoshoot itself as well. Rather than trying to take a few pictures quickly, she took plenty of time in each places we went to and took a couple hundred pictures of me with different positions, moods, and backgrounds. When she sent me the final pictures to choose from (and she sent me over a hundred from which to select my favorites), I was blown away by how much I loved each picture and how different each one was. Rachel was a perfect photographer: willing to either take the lead or let you design your own shoot depending on what you wanted, very knowledgeable, able to conceptualize how each outfit/pose would look in the finalized product, fantastic at choosing locations, incredibly reasonably priced, and in general, an easy person to feel comfortable taking pictures with :) I've never been so happy with pictures of me!

I asked Steven to take my Graduation Photos this past May (2017). I was attracted to his dramatic style and was even more impressed with the final photos. Steven's professionalism shone through and made working with him a breeze. He works hard to make sure customers like the photos they are getting -- he asked about what kind of poses I was comfortable with, discussed what colors/style I was looking for, and continuously shared the photos he took throughout the shoot for feedback. He was very accommodating to my numerous requests (which included asking for photos at extra angles, re-taking photos to fix even the most minute details) and was patient in trying new poses and ideas. His attention to detail helped elevate the quality of the final product. This was exemplified during the shoot, through his simple suggestions on how to fix poses, as well as after, when the final photos demonstrated his strong eye for color. Furthermore, having worked with multiple photographers in the past, I have come to realize that being comfortable with the photographer is extremely important for truly natural, candid photos. Steven is both friendly and funny; I didn't feel awkward in front of the camera or too "pose-y." I believe the example photos I attached below show how much fun I had shooting with him! +++, 10/10, would recommend!! I look forward to working with Steven again in the future :)

Steven was a very talented photographer that really knew what he was doing. From the moment he started shooting, he was very professional about making sure I was comfortable in front of the camera, knew how to pose me, and was sure to capture my best angle. I was very pleased with the results - while Steven's style varies depending on the shoot, I believe the shoots I requested truly brought out the ideas I talked to him about. Since we shot, I've been a return customer! Would highly recommend him for any creative shoot involving models, clothing, cars, portraits, and other categories.

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!!!!!

We recently hired Matt to do some photography for a client project at our marketing agency. We were thrilled with the creativeness that he offered to our project and the final product was nothing short of outstanding! Everything from organizing/planning, to shooting, to delivery of the final artwork was flawless. We will definitely look to using Matthew DePauw Photography for future projects. I also intend to reach out to him for personal use as I know that his personality and fun attitude will be a great match for our upcoming annual family photos!

Matthew did a phenomenal job at my event. I totally loved the pictures he took of me and of my guests at my party. He was extremely patient and excellent with the way he did his work. He has a wonderful eye for scenery. The background of my pictures made the whole moment more beautiful. I really enjoyed working him and so did my family and friends. Next time I have an event or am in need in of a photographer, Matthew will be the first I contact.

Before working with Nico, he was already one of my favorite photographers. His style always caught my eye, but working with him cemented his place in my heart! He is professional and hilarious. We had so much fun searching for impromptu spots and making jokes while shooting. The way Nico posed me during shoots was effortless and easy. He has very clear ideas, and explains how he wants the shot to look so the model has a clear idea of the vision. He was open to my ideas and I felt like we were creative equals. I cannot wait to shoot with him again. A wonderful experience!

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.

I don't usually write reviews, but Tri and his team are phenomenal! I was in a bit of a pinch and in need of a professional headshot within a VERY short time frame. Tri pulled through and is a GEM!!! He was very flexible and professional to work with, actively listened to your preferences and needs, gave me helpful pointers, and kept communication lines open. This was my first time working with Tri and throughout the process, I always felt I was in good hands. You can really tell Tri looks out for you. If you need a professional photographer and find yourself in a situation like me, I have no hesitation recommending Tri! I truly can not thank him and his colleague enough!

Tracey was our wedding photographer and my friends and family are still talking about it! She was professional, courteous and timely!! She really listened to what it was we wanted and did an incredible job. She blended in beautifully and became a part of the party making sure to get all the shots and then some. There were pictures that brought memories of things I had forgotten we even did, she captured every moment in such a creative and photojournalistic way! I recommend her to anyone who wants to relive every wonderful detail of their big day every time they look back at their photos!!

Tracey was my wedding photographer, a role that is beyond important- as you all know. There are no words to describe Tracey's commitment to documenting our day. She captured the most unique and fun shots- and was almost invisible. Her photos were gorgeous, and she made sure that the traditional poses were blended with the fun and cool ones too. Our favorite photo became our thank you card and lives in our bedroom. Tracey is the consummate professional, AND has a killer sense of humor and work ethic. My five star review isn't enough- you'll agree with me once you see your photos.

The photos are so stunning and Tracey is such a delight to work with. She was flexible with availability, which is a huge help when dealing with several different schedules. Tracey was extremely friendly and professional. I'm so happy with the work we did together and I can't wait to work more with her in the future. :)

It was a pleasure working with Omar all along. Even though I only got in touch with him 10 days before my wedding he still found time to meet with us and discuss what wedding style we are expecting, he showed us samples of previous work similar to what we were expecting. On the wedding day he showed up on time and suited up. He proceeded to take pictures of the hall and to take family and couples pictures. Even through the stress of a wedding he stayed calm and managed to blend in with the guests (if it weren't for the camera you'd think he's a guest!) which helped him take great pictures that he also delivered to us on time! 100% would hire again!

The studio shoots were well done and looked extremely good. It was received right on time. There were no delays and the photographer made sure that I was able to view and download my photographs. Above all, he was in continuous contact with the work progress. Well done. It was nice to hire SG for the photographs. The work quality was high-res and better than what I expected. Especially considering the price. I required the photos by the deadline and was pleasantly surprised when he delivered it a day before. This was a good experience.

Tim is an amazing photographer. During consultation, he jotted down every single idea we had in mind for our engagement photo shoot. Yes, literally every single idea. He got a feel of what we were looking for and made some great suggestions. On the day of our shoot, my then fiancé and I were extremely nervous but Tim was patient and made us feel very comfortable. The photos came out phenomenal. Way better than what we could imagine. Highly recommend Tim for any occasion photography!

Tim shot photos for our wedding as a friendly favor. After getting all our photos, it turned out that his shots were a world better quality in composition, lighting, exposure and thoughtfulness that our hired photographer. It was a disappointment to have spent the money in the wrong hands but we were thankful for few quality, memorable and best photos we ended up with - thanks to Tim!

When I submitted my request for head shots, five photographers replied. Tim gave me the most detailed info, including how long it was going to take, how much he would charge, what were not included, etc. His thoughtfulness led me choose him. It turned out that he was a really nice and professional guy.

I was first referred to David by a close friend, when I needed to update my LinkedIn profile pic with a professional headshot. Not being accustomed to sitting across from such a huge lens, this could've been awkward for me, but David made me feel really comfortable and at ease, talking me through all of the shots. He was efficient without making it feel rushed, and I ended up with 3 great options to choose from. He was able to touch-up my selection, and I was very satisfied with the final product. Now when my wife was pregnant with our son, and we began considering documenting this special moment with maternity photos, I automatically thought of David since I had such a positive experience working with him previously. We ended up taking the pictures at the Berkeley Marina based on David's suggestion and prior scouting/preparation. He made us feel very relaxed with his humor, and was great at directing so that we came away with very natural-looking photos, as opposed to the stiff "Prom Pic" effect that we really wanted to avoid. My wife, an amateur photographer in her own right, had tagged a few items on Pinterest from which she drew inspiration, and I appreciated David's willingness and flexibility to do his best to accommodate my wife's wishes. He also came with his own artistic eye (even taking an epic shot to photoshop against a star-filled sky he had taken a few weeks prior for what came out to be a really dramatic picture). He also "airbrushed" the pictures so that my wife looked even more gorgeous than she already is haha. She ended up posting her favorite pictures on social media and got really positive comments across the board from all her friends. We were really happy with the entire album. I highly recommend David for his skill, photographer's eye, and "bedside manner", and we've recommended him to our friends and family. We'll definitely call him again in the future for family portraits and such. Thanks David for the amazing pictures and wonderful experience!

David makes the photo subject feel at ease, which produces great results! He usually asks for certain words or a feel that the photos convey. He is not afraid of letting photo subjects know what is working and what is not—facial expressions, poses, background, etc. You can tell he is working to get the best results possible. Great communication between the client. Will definitely be going to David for future photography needs.

My experience working with Nathaniel Davi Reyes has been an outstanding, rewarding experience, that has helped open many doors for myself and my own business. I asked Nathaniel to perform some photo and video work for a hair cutting tutorial video a little less than a year ago, and the results have been amazing. The final video went to YouTube and has now, to this date, over 700,000 views. I have gained national and world attention, gained several new clientele, and gained side gigs that I would never have came across if it weren't for the video. The common compliments are about how good the quality of the video was; how well done it was put together. Truly a testament to the work and vision of Nathaniel. As far as his professionalism, Nathaniel is a true professional and artist. He has all the equipment necessary, knows how to operate and improvise the equipment, punctual, possesses a quick turn over rate for completion, and requires little if not no instruction in terms of what needs to be done. I simply give him the concept of what I want to do, and let him work his magic like a true artist. All in all, I've now decided to appoint Nathaniel as my go-to video and photo guy.

Our experience with Nathaniel far exceeded our expectations. My wife and I hosted a family gathering at our home to reveal the sex of our new baby. He was taking pictures and videos the entire time. As with many photographers/videographers you never know what you're really going to get. Nathaniel was non-intrusive and blended in at the party which was refreshing. Now for the final product. Much to our surprise the very next day we had our video from him. It brought tears to both of our eyes. We cannot wait to share it with our family and most importantly our son. The video captured all the great moments at our party from the food, the drinks, the laughs and the people. My wife and I strongly recommend his services. Not only is he great at what he does, but he is a personable down to earth type of guy. Thanks Nathaniel.

Ivan's photos were fantastic! He uses flash and depth of field very well to isolate individuals and create quality, creative photos that really represented our event well. He took some great shots and made some people who are hard to capture on camera come to life. Ivan was self-directed, took a ton of shots and variety, and made our Marketing department very happy with the results. We are very glad we picked him to photograph our conference and dinner.
