Lawrence handled the photography of our wedding with energy and enthusiasm. His outlook was as if our wedding was the only wedding in the world. When my wife was talking to him about the food we were serving, Lawrence listened politely and I could see an idea was taking shape in his mind. When my wife finished what she was saying, Lawrence raised his camera and said "Could you remain right there in front of the rose bush for a moment?" This man lives, sleeps and dreams photo angles. The unending quest for another perfect shot, with the perfect lense, under the perfect lighting. When Lawrence heard that my wife and I met in a dispute over my sappy walnut tree, Lawrence searched the ground in my backyard to find a couple of black walnuts left over from the tree that had been removed ten years ago. I knew nothing of this until I watched the slide show he made for us. As the last guitar chord faded away, the display showed our wedding program, with the story of the black walnut printed on it. At the base of the program were the two black walnuts that Lawrence had retreived. Photography is more than a job to Lawrence Gerald, it is his passion. His artistic nature is evident in his photography. The theme of our wedding was a 1930s themed wedding. I rented a cutaway coat, top hat , cane and white gloves. My wife wore antique pearls. Mr. Gerald started our slide show with a creative photo of my top hat , cane and gloves on the table. Draping down from my hat was my wife's pearl necklace, which framed a napkin we had printed with our names and an art deco design. A white rose was arranged on the hat and both of our wedding rings were in the foreground at the base of the hat. This 1930's style photo captured the essence of our wedding theme. Lawrence's work did not end with the wedding. He went through thousands of photos he took and gave us the best 1,500. Our families and friends were included in all of the group shots. His personable nature made it easy to gather around him for posed photos. I would look no further for an excellent photographer to have at an important event. Lawrence is an amazing individual and photographer!

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!

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.

Martino could not have provided my husband and I with a more perfect day of photography for our wedding. He was very personable and very accommodating. He offered transportation for us to and from all our destinations. We made it all the way to City Hall and realized we didn't have our driver's license so he took my husband back to the hotel, no hesitation. The photos turned out amazing and the app he provides is the perfect tool for sharing. We could not have asked for a better photographer.

We used Usman Baporia Photography for videography for our Wedding in May 2016. Usman was very considerate and professional throughout the process. Phone calls and emails were informative, professional and efficient. On the day of, we barely noticed he was there filming. He was able to capture the key moments we wanted to remember. A lot of our friends and family reached out to us and expressed how much they enjoyed the end product.

They were amazing . So polite, helpful, and early to set up. They made my wedding, and I would recommend them over anyone else because of the customer service you get. They had awesome props, so many to choose from. They also were a awesome !!! great price for the unlimited prints and an awesome photo book for the bride and groom at the end of the night, which was funny to see.

We worked with Jim for our wedding video, and he did an excellent job from beginning to end. For something so special as this, we wanted to be sure we hired somebody that we could trust, and that was open to the particular style that we wanted to accomplish. Jim was very responsive to our initial inquiry, and made sure to set up time where we could meet or facetime to discuss our vision. We were happy to learn that Jim had tons of experience in wedding videography. He answered all of our questions, and also gave us ideas and insights as to how other brides and grooms have set up their videos. He was a terrific listener and took to heart our preferences. He communicated with us regularly before the wedding, and on the wedding day showed up right on time to kick things off. He was not intrusive at all and fit right into the flow of the day. The shots he was able to get as a one-man show were terrific you'd think he had a whole team with him!! He captured the beauty of the day, the venue, the feelings before, during and after the ceremony, the guests, the fun, everything!!! We were extra appreciative that our wedding had an unexpected delay before the reception, and Jim stuck around like a trooper and didn't miss a beat. We were so pleased watching the final video, that this is something we will treasure for the rest of our lives. Talk about great value. As somebody unfamilar with videography, I felt nervous about picking the right vendor, but feel very lucky that we stumbled across Jim. Highly recommend!

Nick is insanely talented in videography and photography. He's a consummate professional - polite, communicative, warm, and always makes all the subjects - and his clients - feel at ease. I have hired him for more than 6 jobs and they've ranged from a conceptual video, to an extended multi-day photoshoot, to a quick video editing job. No matter what he does, he does it with an attention to detail and creative energy that makes his work unique and beautiful. I really can't say enough nice or positive things about him, as in the three years we've been working together I have never had even an inkling of a negative experience. I have been a communications director for over 15 years in the Bay Area, I've hired and worked with dozens and dozens of creative professionals, and I can without hesitation say he's one of the best I've ever worked with. He's so technically and creatively talented that even if he was a diva to work with, or difficult in some way, I think I would hire him anyway because what he delivers is so high-quality. But thankfully he's just a genuinely extremely kind human being who also happens to be a creative genius. He'll be your new go-to person for art direction, photography, and videography.

This is long overdue but I definitely wanted to take a moment to give Michael a very warm thank you. His quality of work was excellent and he did a fantastic job capturing the special moments that we will always remember. Michael did a wonderful job communicating so he knew exactly what my wife and I were looking for and his response time was great leading up to our wedding. I highly recommend. Thank you Michael!

Keida was so awesome and easy to work with! He did my wedding video and we were THRILLED. My sister and a couple close friends are in the video production business so they’re always extra critical with videos and they said they could not stop watching it over and over, they LOVED it so much! After I posted it to social media I even received several out-of-the-blue text messages from random people in my life saying how it made them cry, made them laugh, and it was absolutely beautiful! Keida is extremely responsive and on top of his work and is constantly weaving his passion for his work into how he makes his videos. There was some problems with how the microphone picked up my husbands vows and Keida went out of his way to send the audio to another professional (completely free of charge!) to have it cleaned up and perfected so that my video would be just that much more perfect. He even went out of his way to kindly suggest music that really captured the right vibe of the video and how the evening was- it was perfect!! Talk about reliving that day! Thank you so so much, Keida! I hired Keida off of thumbtack after reading other reviews so if you’re reading this, yes, this is a sign you should definitely inquire- it’s hard to find such an awesome, easy-to-work-with, hardworking, passionate-about-his-craft videographer these days, especially at his fair and amazing prices. Great experience, can’t say enough good things, thank you again Keida!

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.

Newlywed Cinema's team was a blessing to work with. Their professionalism and creative nature to make sure that our wedding was captured in the best possible manner was outstanding! They showed up to our home for the getting ready video shots. They weren't in the way at all. I loved Luis's philosophy behind these moments "Pretend like the camera's aren't here". That definitely eased myself and all of my bridesmaids. We didn't have to pretend or script anything. Everything that was captured came naturally. The ceremony was captured from multiple point of views and got all of the close ups that we wanted! Thank you for that Luis. We cried our eyes out when we saw the finished highlight films. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Francisco has expertly helped us on a couple of projects, and we were very pleased with his work on both of them! He shot and edited a one minute video including interviews and b-roll, and he edited raw footage of interviews to turn into a short video series. We appreciated his attention to detail and creative videography as well as his focus on quality.
