Enjoyed working with Albert and Angela. They are courteous and professional and did an excellent job creating our video. I really appreciated the artistic touches they added when the original video was edited.

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. I'm a licensed wedding and travel photographer working with various magazines. Recently awarded from Thumbtack and the Bay Area community the Top 10, Best of 2015 Freelance Photographers Award at slot #2. My style of photography is journalistic for weddings, I shoot in a very natural way and also shoot traditional wedding photos. I find that it's best to let people be themselves -- laughing, giggling and enjoying each other. Those "candid" shots end up being the best ones because they catch the essence of what was really happening at that very moment. That is the body of my photo work you are looking at, that is how I made those shots look that particular way. I always give a mix of traditional posed and candid photos back. When I'm not shooting weddings or landscapes for magazines, you will also find me available for corporate events, commercial, food photography, products, couple portraits, band portraits and anything else you can think of that requires photography. I will travel anywhere and love to meet new people. With that said, I have had numerous clients fly me out to other states for their weddings. I'm in California, and you are in New York? Of course, I can work for you. It would be an honor. I give a mix of wedding photos in return -- meaning, black and white and color. It all depends on what works with the lighting in photography. If you prefer no black-and-white photos, then please let me know before everything is set in stone -- meaning, "before the engagement shoot, before your wedding, when we first talk planning, before everything." Remember, it is your day; I'm there to capture "your day" and satisfy your needs. Let me tell your story through my lens. Rates: please contact me. Every event slightly differs from one another (All rates include travel costs, editing and CD or e-mailed high-res photos.). FILM: I am also offering film packages alongside my digital work. Not a fan of those fake orange/yellow software filters? And need a photographer that shoots digital and film naturally? Without the fake over-brushed Photoshop look? Contact me. My one piece of advice: do not hire someone because the "rate is cheaper." It's your wedding, your one day -- your most special day. Hire someone based on the quality of the work/art. Be sure to look at my official website at the link below. "The best teacher is experience and not through someone's distorted point of view!" -- Jack Kerouac My latest work can be found in Brides Magazine, National Geographic Kids Magazine, Lonely Planet Traveler UK Magazine, Turkish Airlines (Skylife Magazine) and N-Photo Nikon Deutschland Magazine. On the Pixoto Photo website, I was awarded/ranked the #14 wedding photographer of 2014 out of thousands of photographers from around the world.

Thank you Cindy for fantastic wedding photos! My favorite part about working with Cindy is that she is professional. For me, this means several things: she was always timely with email responses throughout the process, she was prompt and ready on the day of, and her turn around time for the photos was super short! But the ultimate reason that Cindy is an amazing professional is that she is invisible! I have heard plenty of horror stories of photographers that drag the bride and groom away from the fun and make the occasion all about the pictures. Cindy was great at taking very little of our time to do couples shots. We were able to be completely present in the moment at all our events and Cindy captured them without us even knowing she was there. We have some excellent candids of friends and family as well as posed shots of the two of us. She stayed close at the beginning of the reception so that I could ask her for specific shots but she also wandered around and got a great picture of almost all 150 people at the event :) We are very happy with the pictures and the experience!

Doug and Melinda went above and beyond for my wedding. It rained on my wedding day but that didn't stop our photographers from taking beautiful rain shots, it actually added to the magic! We originally wanted photos at the Palace of Fine Arts but that wouldn't have worked out with the rain, so we came up with a plan B after the wedding ceremony and Doug was flexible with the sudden change. Later that day, my mother and my aunt could not figure out how to pin my bustle, Melinda stepped in like a pro and saved the day! Not only are they great photographers but they really helped us keep the flow of the wedding. We saw a preview of our wedding photo gallery and it was beautiful, we cannot wait to see all of the photos and create our album. We especially loved the candid shots during the wedding ceremony as well as the rain shots.

I highly recommend Patrick Power! I needed a professional portrait for a legal job application, and I hadn't had one taken in over 20 years. I wanted it to be professional, but also unique. I wasn't sure how to find a photographer, so I just put out a bid on thumbtack. Patrick responded very quickly and with a very reasonable price. I had resigned myself to just getting a studio portrait with a neutral background, but Patrick had the idea of meeting at City Hall to take the photo. I was very nervous and self-conscious about the process. I don't like having my picture taken and I am not very photogenic. It helped that City Hall was full of other photographers taking pictures of brides, grooms, and other people like me, so I didn't really stand out. I had a problem and ended up being pretty late to our meeting, but Patrick was very nice about it. I was sweating like crazy in my suit, but he did a good job of putting me at ease and letting me rest and cool down for a little bit white while he staked out spots to take the photo. He talked with me casually about what I was looking for in the photo, but we also made small talk about our lives and work, so that soon I felt very comfortable with him. As a result, I looked very natural in the photo. Patrick took a lot of shots, and several of them were quite good. I needed the work done on very short notice, including a print. I made the bid on a Sunday, we did the photo shoot on Monday, and I had the print by Tuesday morning. I love the photo, and my family and friends do too. Everyone agreed that not just my appearance, but also my personality comes through in the photo. I will definitely call Patrick again if I need another photo taken in the future!

Jason's multiple photo sessions with our family were creative, fun, and professional. He definitely has a knack for getting kids to smile. We look forward to another session with him in the future. We would definitely recommend Jason for his outstanding photography.
