Nabor Godoy was excellent all around - friendly, warm, professional, good at making you feel comfortable in front of the camera and putting you at ease. He is efficient, quick at making decisions, has an intuitive creative sense of what works and an artist's eye. He is quite fabulous. I highly recommend him!

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.

Stavan did a great job photographing of our wedding! His pictures were lovely, and plentiful, and he did a great job of getting the right shots without getting in the way (like some photographers). Very highly recommended!

Jeff was smart, prepared, and professional. I selected him over other photographers because my impression was that he approached a job with the customer's needs at heart, and his work at our event certainly bore that out. He communicated well, was unobtrusive and helpful, and oh by the way he took some wonderful pictures of people engaged and working together at our event. You will enjoy working with Jeff, I promise.

Diane always responded quickly, to my questions. She came onsite and was very thorough. Her work was superior to other drone vendors we have used in the past. The stills arrived in 1 day, and the edited video took less than 3 days.

Adam and Hanna were our Wedding Photographers in November 2016. Everything was very professional from the first time we met them, email communication in between, and on the day of our wedding. They were specific in asking us which photos we desired to be taken and were careful to take these and more! We were very impressed by the results and the price. Adam and Hanna provided us with incredible, professionally done photos that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. Everyone we show our photos to are amazed at the quality. There's no one else out there who charges a great, low price with high quality! I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

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!

Choosing Jennifer as our photographer for our wedding day was the best decision we made. Great communication since our first conversation. Our wedding day was chaotic! But she was there trying to do whatever she could to help us. The photos of our wedding beat our expectations, she was able to capture all the love and happiness of our wedding, everyone who saw our pictures loved them! Thank you Jen for being awesome and capturing such amazing images of the best day of our lives!

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!

I had to do a short congratulatory video for a friend who is collecting a major award at the Cannes Festival. I come from the ad industry so I'm used to working with filmmakers, photographers etc; I found Ilja to be totally professional, easy to work with (even when I switched the brief) and affordable. He also has a good eye for lighting and performance. Would I use him again? Absolutely.

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!

I've hired many photographers in the past for various events such as wedding, corporate parties and other events and William J Simpson trumps all of them by far! I knew I would enjoy his artistic take on photography and I love his eye for great moments and angles. Who knew it would take a first birthday party to finally find the right photographer! :) He was very punctual, responded quickly to my emails, and such a joy to work with during the event. Professional and personal at the same time. You won't regret hiring him for your next project or event. I know I'll be coming back to him for future events!

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.

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 :)

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
