Dayvid was great to work with for my daughter's quinceañera . I researched a lot of photographers and he is the only one that made me feel comfortable enough to book without meeting him since I live out of state. He showed up on time was very easy to talk to and gave me a great product. I would definitely use him for my other daughter if he is still around.

Brad was absolutely AMAZING! You can tell he genuinely loves what he does, which is my favorite thing about Brad. I was a bit nervous hiring a photographer that I hadn't officially met in person, especially since photography is one of the most important things for a wedding. Brad did not disappoint. He arrived 30 minutes early, bright eyed and ready to go. He paid SUCH close attention to detail, and was really into getting the perfect shot. He gives you little sneak peaks on his camera so you can see how amazing everything is turning out. He had plenty of equipment, was very creative with his shots, and quick to capture the moments. I knew this man was the truth when he sent over a few highlights the very next morning. I mean, who is so into what they do that they're still working on your stuff after shooting for 8 hours the day before? I can't think of anyone! He was super pleasant, and fun. I felt comfortable talking to him and asking him questions or for certain shots. He wasn't one of those snobby photographers that try to boss you around and don't listen to what you want. Anyway, I could go on and on about how amazing Brad is, but I think you get the picture. If you're nervous about hiring him, don't be. He's the best and you won't regret it!

Nona is hands down one of the best photographers our family has ever worked with! Very professional and extremely good at what she does. We had to reschedule d/t the bipolar Houston weather and she worked well (and FAST) to get everything done, EVEN had a few pics ready in less than 24hrs!! I only wish we could've gotten the remaining photos a little sooner as a small project I was working on was delayed (and so many were so good!). To be fair, she delivered on her original ETA AND photos were done just before the holidays, so we know she was very busy. I would absolutely recommend her to everyone I know, our pictures have gotten rave reviews from family and friends!

MacTaggart Media worked with my organization during a three day conference in San Diego and everyone with our company was impressed with her professionalism and the high quality of her work. Over the years, I have engaged photographers all around the country for corporate events and Kelli MacTaggart is the best I've ever hired.

I recommend Danielle very highly. My husband and I did an engagement photoshoot last night. Danielle was on time, very fun and adventurous for creative pictures, puts you at ease, she loves what she does and that makes it great because you know the work will be good. We had a sunset shoot and it was perfect! She knew where to go, how to pose and also was open for more ideas if we wanted. We were there before the sunset so had fun before during and after it. We cannot wait to see all the photos! Thank you Danielle :) PS: she will be our wedding photographer as well.

Sheryl was the photographer at our wedding, and I cannot say enough about the amazing job she did. Everything from her communication to her professionalism was outstanding. She made everyone at the wedding feel comfortable and at ease. I was so impressed with the little things she did like making sure my dad has his boutonniere on before the ceremony and capturing the moments that I would never have thought of. Above all if you want a photographer to be creative and use her artistic skills to create breathtaking results, then Sheryl is the one!

There are photographers and then there are artists with a camera; Nicole Pittman is a true artist. I also hired her husband, Chris. Typically you don't strike gold by having an equally talented spouse - but that's what I found in this spectaclular team. I even hired them for another event. I didn't have the money in the budget but after my client saw the work - we couldn't afford NOT to have them. Oh - and the turnaround was insane. They turned over hundreds and hundreds of photos to me OVERNIGHT and a 5 minute edited video in less than 24 hours. I have NEVER seen such talent in a team. Oh - and they are the nicest couple you will ever meet. I'd hire them just to follow me around and say nice things to me! A MUST HIRE!

Hugh is a great guy, a real pro photographer, easy to work with, and creative at a thumbtack competitive rate. I'm a Realtor and have worked with other photographers before. Set a time to meet and he even scouted the area beforehand for multiple locations ready to shoot; and spent a lot of time with us too. Offered a proof sheet, we picked out favorite photos, and he retouched the photos and delivered with a fast turnaround. Will use him again.

Joe was a terrific photographer. I had to postpone the photos 3 times due to weather, and he was very patient and made himself available throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for drone photography and we will be hiring him again for future projects.

I put out a thumbtack request for a photographer the night before my wedding anniversary in a last minute effort to try to give my wife the gift of family pictures for out anniversary. Due to my last minute request I was sure no photographers would be able to come out the very next day. Within 2 minutes of me submitting the thumbtack request Rachel actually called me on the phone and said she would love to come out the very next day and take our family pictures! Rachel was so accommodating and even was answering text message questions I was sending until 11:00 P.M. that night! The day of my anniversary I surprised my wife with a beautiful little family pictures certificate that Rachel had made custom for me the night before. Rachel met up with us that afternoon for the photo shoot and she even drove all the way up Big Cottonwood Canyon where we wanted the photos done. Rachel's patience with our screaming kids was amazing and her professionalism was unsurpassed. Rachel also has an amazing eye for art and photography and thought of some amazing ways and ideas to capture some truly amazing moments of our family. She really captured the relationships our family shares instead of just pictures of our family staring at the camera smiling. I HIGHLY recommend Rachel. Thanks Saints Photography!!!

Initially was afraid of the professionalism of the photographers, we never met with them in person. We communicated all by emails, text and phone calls. Once they showed up they were great, good team work! Such a great experience. Antonio was such a great leader and he knows his stuff. It was amazing!! We are excited and can not wait to see our wedding pictures and videos. They were so great even when we booked 1 month in advance for photographer and 1 week in advance for videography. There is not enough stars to show how satisfied we are with them.

I have worked with Joe on several projects. At the 2016 NAMM Show in Anaheim, he shot and edited more than 10 videos over a four day span and all were just excellent. High quality, with pristine sound, to boot. We also worked with Ducati for a Fender/Ducati partnership and took to the streets to make a creative promotional video that showcased a great scavenger hunt/post-party event. I'd definitely work with Joe again! - Mike Duffy Senior Editor Fender.com
