Lawrence did a fantastic job on my wedding photography and video. His stills and video are all beautiful and very creative. Everyone who's seen our wedding photos want to hire him for their next event! In addition to having a great eye and skills, he was also very professional, friendly and accommodating. He even drove us to the Golden Gate Bridge for pics after the wedding and then to our wedding dinner! I could not recommend Lawrence more highly. Great photographer and great guy!

We had an outdoor wedding in Kenwood. It was not your typical wedding venue and Michael did a great job navigating the space and finding great shots along the way. He was definitely the easiest vendor of ours to work with and very responsive. I was definitely looking for more unique style and not the same old wedding shots, I wanted to capture the event and all the action and Michael definitely did that.

Kuks did the most incredible job shooting photos for my best friend's very private rooftop wedding. The photos came out beautifully and perfectly captured the magic of the event. The whole experience was totally relaxed and natural-we never felt like we were 'posing for the camera'. He was able to catch such sweet intimate moments of the ceremony completely candidly. I am so glad that I have his contact info for future events and I will absolutely recommend him to my friends for their photography needs. 5 stars!

Thomas did a great job capturing our wedding at Wine & Roses in Lodi! Very professional and friendly person. He was never in the way or distracting like I have seen with other wedding photographers and yet he was still able to take so many amazing and memorable photos. Thank you!

Finding wedding photography and videography was so hard and not to mention expensive. A friend told me about thumbtack, so I figured I'll give it a try and am sure glad I did. Shelia was so helpful and very informative about everything. She is so professional at all times . I told her my budget and she stuck rite to it and threw in some extra things for me. She offers beautiful engagement photos which turned out beautiful. We went to the Japanese Tea Garden in Harward , CA, and it was absloutely beautiful. On the day Of our wedding Shelia and Pam Were there early. They got pictures of the wedding set up, tables , flowers, cake, etc.. Shelia got pictures of everything I asked for. From the beginning to the end. And the most important she got some great shots of all the kids before they got all dirty it was beautiful. After the wedding Shelia got back to me in a week with all the pictures we had to pick threw, once we made our choices she put them in a beautiful album and sent them rite out us. I would recommend Shelia services to anyone looking for a professional and hard working photographer who takes pride in her work and making sure your needs are met on your special day. Thanks Shelia It turly was a pleasure! Sincerely Mr. & Mrs. De'Monta & Yolanda Hichks

Chantelle was both my Make Up & Hair Stylist for my Wedding Day in Sonoma Califonia on July 12, 2014. She was absolutely incredible. Not only did she make me feel amazingly beautiful on my wedding day, but she was very responsive, delivered above and beyond to make my entire wedding party feel comfortable and beautiful. Thank you for making my day so special. Tara

Where to begin with Adam and Hanna. Go ahead and hire them. Don't second guess yourself. I wish I could put into words how grateful I am to this couple for making our engagement shoot memorable and actually enjoyable for a reluctant photo shoot groom. Booking them was easy. And Adam was extremely patient with me as I changed the location the day of the shoot. We live in San Francisco,on the morning of the shoot I realized the fog was in for the day. After emailing Adam in a panic he suggested a beautiful park down in Los Gatos. It was everything I wanted for the pictures and more . Ada and Hannah were very calm,friendly and good fun to be around it actually was very enjoyable. If our wedding was not A destination wedding I would hire him and Hanna again for my wedding photography. We even received some unedited pics the night of the shoot.they were amazing. He is awesome with the camera. They took their time. Never glanced at the watch and actually went over the time frame we had booked them for. Excited to see the final pictures. Adam and Hanna....thank you both so so much. Lynne and Ken

Patrick was our wedding photographer, and he went above and beyond for us in too many ways to list. He was professional, hardworking and thoughtful in every way, disappearing into the background yet catching so many amazing moments throughout the evening. Patrick is not your traditional wedding photographer, but that was not what we were looking for. His work speaks for itself, and we recommend him highly.

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/

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!

James has tremendous experience and knowledge as a photographer. He understands light and focus and depth on such an immediate level, which enables him to excel in his results, creating not just photos, but art. On top of this, he is considerate and very funny. He was the photographer for our daughter's wedding and the subjects all glowed in a phenomenal way. Every one was natural yet at their best.

I hired Usman for my wedding photography for two wedding functions plus two couples/family shoots, I did not have wedding videos done by him so I can't comment on it. Usman was very comfortable to work with, and quite flexible and helpful as well (I even got a ride from him to my own reception). He's of a friendly disposition, easy going, and easy to get along with. We were quite happy with our pictures, he has a sharp eye for good framing and did some very good impromptu shots on our couples shoot. I don't think there were any important moments that he didn't catch with great shots. I would certainly recommend him for your wedding.

Tri was really professional in handling my request. This was the first time he was doing food related photography but he aced it. All the photographs on my site www.topmunch.com are from him. Would definitely go back to him for my future food photography needs.

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!

We initially reached out to Rick because we liked the work on his website. We decided to move forward with Rick for a home family photo session because of our connection through a phone conversation, his professionalism and responsiveness. Rick was fantastic to work with for number reasons. He was open to accommodate our fixed schedule, was friendly, prompt and full of suggestions. I let him know I was not sure about what background we should use letting him know that it could be a couple different locations on the property. That did not concern him and he ended up bringing a lot of photography equipment beyond cameras and lenses. What stood out about Rick the most was his generosity regarding his time. He was extremely patient and really wanted for us to feel relaxed, comfortable and confident that we had the shots we wanted before he left. Not only do I recommend Rick but I will certainly use him again.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
