    Jen Vazquez Photography

    (46 reviews)

    I have a way of getting people to relax and enjoy taking photographs. I can do poses or lifestyle type of natural light photography (but also use flash when needed). I work primarily with Weddings and Engagements but also headshots. I've also been featured on Wedding Colors, Borrowed & Blue, Elegant Wedding, A North Woods Wedding and Perfect Wedding Guide. I like most about my job that it doesn't feel like work because I love what I do. Finding something I love to do means I don't have to work another day again.

  • DeNoise Studios (Best of Thumbtack 2015 Award Winner)

    (171 reviews)

    DeNoise Studios has been a pro facility in the East Bay area since 1998. We offer a wide range of audio, video, and photo services. We are multimedia specialists. We can handle any analog or digital media, even very old ones. We offer sound, video, and photo services on-location or at our studio located in Emeryville, CA. We also rent and install audio-video systems for personal, corporate, or institutional projects. In general, we can help you with recording, filming, shooting, editing, mastering, authoring, restoration, retouching, graphic design, animation, transfer, scanning, duplication, and almost any postproduction services. We run a fully equipped professional studio and not a home studio. We are licensed, we pay and charge sales tax, insurance, and workers' comp. We travel around the entire Bay Area. We own our own fast media server to upload and download media files. We already worked on close to 5,000 different projects. We keep a backup of everything. Here are two important points regarding our presence on Thumbtack: (1) We believe in fair competition. We appreciate that Thumbtack is offering business opportunities to both home and pro studios, but there is a reason why service prices range from $5 to $200 an hour. A deep and fair comparison will help you find what will better fit your needs. (2) Thumbtack is a free service for buyers, but we pay for each estimate we send. So please be considerate, even if you change your mind, hire someone else, or are just here to get a price idea, we would appreciate some feedback about the price and services described in the estimate. It will help us build a better business. Check out our video and photo portfolio at the websites listed below. Thank you.

    First and foremost - I love what I do. I feel privileged to be able to make art every day and to share it with my clients. My goal is to make images speak, exposing "how it feels". I try to achieve in my work: balance, beauty, consistency and continual growth. I think my photography stands out from others as I have shot on film my entire life. I focus on "real moments", a more journalistic style of wedding photography. I switched to digital about five years ago. But when I make my photos I strive to get the shot right the first time "in camera" - not in Photoshop! A lot of photographers overly utilize Photoshop and manipulate their photos far beyond what they originally shot. With my work, I only use Lightroom as a "digital darkroom" to develop my colors of what I saw and try my best to make that shot perfect in my eyes to begin with. Photoshop is only used in my work if something major needs to be done, mistake, or a client has a special request for that magazine look of brushing, for example a fashion shoot, modeling ad and so on. No one should "rely" on Photoshop. You should rely on your "photography skills" - while on the job. Rates: Contact me (varying rate depending on event) Cancellation: $50 cancellation fee for (engagement shoots) I get the freedom to express how I see the world through my lens. These images are seen through my eyes with the help of my camera. My intention has always been to put the viewer in the moment, of actually feeling like they are in the photo, standing at the viewpoint, gazing, and leaving it up to the viewer to interpret their own feelings. I want to find the camera angle from which this feeling can be the most that they can be whatever that is. If it is the grace of the clouds, then I want the angle from which that grace becomes the absolute most it can be at that moment. And so it leads me on, to explore angles, space, reflections, and light. I strive to make "moments" make sense visually, and trust that the metaphor, meaning, will follow.

    I listen to my client and help them capture the images they want and will spend the time needed to ensure the image is edited to perfection. I love every minute I'm working with my clients. I find the best angles, best lighting, and thrive from that challenge. I enjoy making my clients happy!!

  • Douglas Fairbairn Photography

    (79 reviews)

    Serving San Francisco Bay Area, I focus on Wedding, Portrait and Event photography. In other words, I focus on people and their emotions. For weddings, I combine a photojournalistic style with traditional bridal and family portraiture. In all my photography, my ultimate goal is to capture the real emotion of the moment and allow my photos to stir those emotions forever. My clients appreciate the superb photography, along with an easy and fun working relationship, combined with a dedication to complete dependability and a commitment to full customer satisfaction. Most of all, I enjoy the people I get to know through my photography. I love to hear their stories, how couples meet, how families relate, and just who they are as people. I do my best work when I have an easy and relaxed relationship with my clients. I can capture the best and most natural images when the client is comfortable and feeling good about themselves.

  • Patrick T. Power Photography

    (64 reviews)

    This is a tough one. I have to admit to not being particularly creative behind the camera for most of the work I do. My clients quite simply don't require it. I try, however, to be as prepared as possible prior to every job, often asking questions up until the last moment before leaving home. I make every attempt to get photographs to my clients as quickly as possible, and I am almost always of good nature, from first contact until the delivery of the photos. Cliché though it might seem, I most enjoy meeting the people I work with. The San Francisco area boasts such a diverse populace in background, personalities and interests that it's a pleasure meeting and chatting with them. As a relative newcomer to the Bay Area, it's also interesting to meet those who are lifelong residents of the city, as well as to learn how non-native San Franciscans came to live here.
