(SPANISH BELOW) I want to highly recommend Nabor for your next photography project. I was contacted by my book editor asking for a head sot for my next novel. I live in Petaluma, CA and after looking at the rates of local photographers I tried this website. I obtained several bids and since I know very little about photography I asked my son for his opinion (he does photography for fun). After looking at the work of the people who sent bids he advised me that Nabor's work was the best "hands down". I negotiated with Nabor and he traveled to Petaluma to take the photos. We met early in the morning and when I got there he was already waiting for me. I was immediately impressed with his professional demeanor and flexibility. We walked around town and he knew exactly where the right background was. I knew then I was working with an artist. The love for his work is apparent in the photos he took. He got it right from the third photo but went on to take 191 photos!!!. The difficult part for me has been having to decide on just one photo. Nabor is definitely the best photographer I have ever worked with. There is something else beautiful about Nabor and that is that his first language is Spanish which is also my first language. It was truly a pleasurable experience to collaborate with someone passionate about his work. His photo will be a blessing to my novel. Thank you Nabor. (IN SPANISH) Quiero recomendar altamente Nabor para su próximo proyecto de fotografía. Mi editor de libros me pidió una fotografía reciente y profesional para mi próxima novela. Yo vivo en Petaluma, California, y después de mirar los precios de fotógrafos locales decidí probar este sitio web. Obtuve una serie de ofertas y puesto que sé muy poco acerca de la fotografía le pregunté a mi hijo su opinión (él hace la fotografía por diversión). Después de ver el trabajo de las personas que enviaron las propuestas mi hijo me aconsejó que el trabajo de Nabor era el mejor "sin comparación". Negocié con Nabor y viajó a Petaluma para tomar las fotos. Nos encontramos temprano en la mañana y cuando llegué ya me estaba esperando. Me impresionó inmediatamente su profesionalismo y su flexibilidad. Caminamos por el pueblo y él eligió el escenario perfecto para las fotos, sin durarlo mucho. Entonces supe que estaba trabajando con un artista. El amor por su trabajo es evidente en las fotos que tomó. Desde la tercera foto ya había cumplido con su encomienda y sobrepasado mi expectativa, pero siguió trabajando hasta tener ¡ 191 fotos !!!. La parte difícil para mí ha sido decidir en una sola foto. Nabor es sin duda el mejor fotógrafo con quien he trabajado. Hay algo todavía más bello de Nabor y es que su primer idioma es el español, que también es mi primera lengua. Fue realmente una experiencia agradable colaborar con alguien apasionado por su trabajo. Su foto será una bendición para mi novela. Gracias Nabor.

Amazing time with Michael Keel. His quality and work ethic are second to none. Comparable price to most high quality photographers. Professional in all the right sense. We would book him for any other event should we need professional photography done. Legit, thanks Michael.

Andrea served as event photographer for my baby shower at the Orinda Country Club. She was on time, very professional and very easy to work with. She sent over a sample photo, which will serve as my picky sister's holiday card photo. Seriously this says a lot! I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures from the event but know they will be beautiful! Highly recommend working with Andrea

Jen was a pleasure to work with and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a great Bay Area photographer. She knew her way around city hall and the civic ceremony process, which helped calm our nerves. Her directions during the photo shoot were clear, helpful, fun, and gentle. She is fantastic! Thank you so much, Jen.

Eric and Claire were a delight to have as our photographers. Each time we spoke with Eric, he came prepared with ideas on locations. Before the actual day, he scouted out additional locations. We liked his work which is why we picked him. But, our wedding was on Saturday and we've already seen some samples, and we love, love what we've seen so far. Eric is professional, accommodating and his passion for his work is apparent. Even our guests enjoyed his presence at the wedding. We couldn't be happier with our experience of working with him.

Overall, we want to give our highest recommendation to KRA Image Designs (Anna and Jonathon). After an extensive search for an engagement photographer, we came across KRA Image Designs and ultimately decided to go with them because of the beauty of their photography, value, and quick communication. Since we were getting married in San Francisco, we wanted to capture some of the iconic SF landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge, Presidio Park, and Legion of Honor. Anna and Jonathon were very knowledgeable about the area, and suggested areas that would look aesthetically best on camera. When meeting them on the day of our engagement shoot, their friendliness and warmth quickly made us feel comfortable in front of the camera. Despite the fact that I did not know American Sign Language, communicating with them was never a problem. It was very nice to see how Anna and Jonathon work with each other - taking turns with the camera, posing us (which we really needed guidance on), and giving one another feedback for the best shot. They did a perfect mix capturing posed shots, and candid shots. We had an outfit and location change, and they were patient and accommodated the time it took us to change and relocate areas. We previously encountered photographers that scrutinized the clock and once their scheduled time was over they would dart away, but Anna and Jonathon wanted to take advantage of the lighting, scenery, and mood to capture the right photographs. Normally, we are very awkward on camera, but somehow Anna and Jonathon worked magic to make us comfortable with the camera. The time it took to receive our photographs was fairly quick - a little less than a month after our engagement shoot. When we received the CD of our photographs in the mail, we were dreading how we would look, but our photographs turned out amazing. We had so many excellent photos to choose from, and it was difficult hand picking just a few to display at our wedding. We were very proud to show them to our friends and family, and really could not ask for more. Thank you Anna and Jonathon – we were so lucky to work with such a talented team of photographers.

I had to do a short congratulatory video for a friend who is collecting a major award at the Cannes Festival. I come from the ad industry so I'm used to working with filmmakers, photographers etc; I found Ilja to be totally professional, easy to work with (even when I switched the brief) and affordable. He also has a good eye for lighting and performance. Would I use him again? Absolutely.

Usman took pictures for us at our SF City Hall Civil Ceremony and we couldn't be happier with how everything turned out. This was my first time using Thumbtack and I wasn't sure of the process or exactly what to expect, but was extremely pleased with the outcome and how easy it was. As a photographer, Usman was truly a pleasure to work with - he knew the City Hall civil ceremony process and made everything easy for us and a lot of fun. We loved his professional yet laid back style and it made us feel very comfortable and at ease in front of the camera (something that we weren't used to). From getting the quote, arranging details, payment, etc. everything was efficient and fast, but also very well done. He knew the best spots in and around City Hall for pictures - and I couldn't believe how many we were able to take in just an hour with him. We received the retouched photos very quickly (in less than a week!) via Dropbox and absolutely LOVE them. He did an amazing job! We would definitely work with Usman again and will certainly recommend him to our friends and family. Thank you Usman for capturing our day so perfectly! It was a pleasure to have you be a part of it. Thank you!

I told Tri that we would be having a corporate VIP event at Celtra, Inc. and we needed him to take some shots. Tri definitely delivered, he was very professional and took plenty of high quality shots that made Celtra, Inc. look like an appealing company. His turnaround for the photos was only 24 hours and the image quality was excellent. Will definitely hire him again!

The event for which I hired him was a surprise and he showed up early and was ready to go right when I needed him. The pictures he took were very high quality though there were some instances where better angles could have been used - only minor flaws though. All in all, I would recommend him if you’re looking for a punctual photographer that will produce high quality photos for a reasonable price

Ofelia is a talented photographer with amazing people skills, I was made to feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the photo session. Upon setting up the appointment, I was not sure where or when would be best place and time to take my senior photos but Ofelia knowledgeably recommended a local garden in full bloom, making a beautiful background to my photos, and a time of day that would allow for best lighting. The photo session lasted an hour and I was never made to feel rushed, which being nervous, I appreciated. Ofelia was flexible on the different poses I could use and had plenty of options for me to try. She was definitely not afraid to get dirt on herself for a good shot. She used a stepping stool and even laid on the ground. The photos came out beautifully, professionally and at the time agreed. I loved the overall look of the photos and the way I was portrayed. Ofelia is a wonderful photographer with talent for taking beautiful photographs. I will be coming back for any and all of my family's photographic needs.

The pictures came out clear. He provided a photo book with the event photos. We had a photo book that everyone enjoyed. The price was reasonable/ affordable. I recommend using his business for future events.
