Where do I even start? Hiring a photographer was difficult for me, as I am a photographer. However, I can’t photograph my own wedding. I also had a lower budget, which as a photographer myself, I knew I couldn’t ask for too much. I can’t say enough good things about Tom. My wedding was on the beach in Ventura at 5pm. Not only was Tom on time, but he got there early enough to take pictures of the set up and the guys before I got there, and he texted me updates (I was running a little late). Also, he brought a second photographer! A very sweet woman. Even though I was running late, he did not make me feel rushed for time. He got photos of EVERYTHING. When I arrived he met me at the car, got photos of me finishing getting ready with my bridesmaids, and snapped photos of my bouquet etc while we got lined up. During the ceremony he got every angle possible for everything. My ceremony was also honoring both religions of our families, and my side is Jewish. We had my grandpa perform the glass breaking ceremony. Not only did I get amazing photos of that, but once I received my flash drive in the mail, I had a video of the glass breaking! I was blown away. He was extremely organized and so great with traditional as well as fun poses for photos. One photo I wanted was the typical groomsmen holding the bride up photo. I told him that, and he told me he already had a plan. Now, my husband and I aren’t small people. Tom decided it’d be great to have the bridesmaids hold my husband and the groomsmen hold me, and make it look like their pulling us apart (I LOVED this idea). Well, the silly groomsmen didn’t know what they were doing and DROPPED me in the sand. I have a sense of humor so I laughed about it. Tom made sure I was okay, and helped us try again to get what became my favorite photo. He was not awkward at all, very easy to interact with and very good at getting everyone’s attention. He took every single photo I could’ve ever wanted. Artsy, traditional, funny, all of it. On top of that, he did not limit me on how many photos he took or gave back to me. I am not sure exactly how many photos I got back but it is WELL over 1,000, which is AMAZING. And, he also had them all done and posted online WITHIN TWO DAYS! And he had the flash drive to me with files for print and files for online and the video I didn’t expect within a week of us getting home from our week long honeymoon. I can’t say enough good things about Tom and his work. Any time I’m visiting Southern California, I will be contacting him for any of my photo needs (hopefully maternity in a couple months??). Everyone needing a photographer, do yourselves a favor and hire Tom. Tom, thank you again for everything ♥️♥️

Richard was the photographer for our wedding. Richard has an amazing talent for photography. He is professional, on time, and has a great eye. Richard busted his butt for us,long after any other photographers would have called it a day. Richard was full of great ideas, and more then willing to roll with any suggestions. Richard had more ideas then we had time for.That was too bad, because if we had all day, we would have had even more great photos. I would recommend Richard for any of your photography needs.

Grant was phenomenal! As an event planner for a media organization, I tend to travel all over the place and work with many vendors. Grant is one of the best photographers I have ever worked with. He was so prompt with my questions, and a true professional. The event itself was a multi panel conference, and his commitment to getting the best shot possible was outstanding. He was also effective in moving around the room and through the audience without distracting the attendees, which is a HUGE bonus. The quality of his work is fantastic. He was able to capture the speakers in a thoughtful yet dynamic manner, which is exactly what I was looking for. I would happily work with Grant again and recommend him highly.

Samer was great, he showed up on time and started taking pics with little direction from me because I was running around hosting the event. He took great candid shots without being in the way.

I had excellent experience with Haldane Morris Photography. He is so professional. He know exactly what he is doing. I spent total three hours and got so much high quality photos. His technique is different compare to many other photographers who i had been working with. With those photos you don't really need a photoshop. He also working with such a talented makeup/hair stylist Keon Cruz, very professional , his light makeup perfect for the headshot. So you can also hiring him as well, if you want to. I highly recommending Haldane Morris Photography. :) Wish you all stay beautiful:*!!!! Anastasiya Mitrunen.

I'm new to selecting photographers from Thumbtack, so was a little nervous. April far exceeded our expectations for professionalism and work quality. She was able to move her schedule around to accommodate a large corporate event over multiple days. The photos turned out great and were delivered promptly. We definitely plan to use April Rocha Photography again!

She is very professional and you can see that she puts 100000%!in her work.I had 2 photo sessions with her (maternity and some photos with my baby).

My fiance and I interviewed a couple other photographers for our wedding photography but decided to go with Vanessa. We started with engagement photos to get to know each other before our wedding, and we couldn't be happier working with her. She made us feel very comfortable in front of the camera and just be ourselves. She has so much of positive energy and was willing to meet our needs and wants. The high resolution images were given to us within a week, and they turned out great. We can't wait til our wedding and working with her again. I highly recommend Vanessa as your photographer to capture your special moments.

Bernadette photographed our civil wedding in Ridgewood, New Jersey. I am so thankful I found and hired her, she was patience, professional, creative and very sweet! We got some of the pictures the same day and we were amazed, I can not believe sometimes those people are us hahaha! We got all the pictures, plus some edited just few days after the wedding. I will definitely hire her over and over again. I still impressed and she is wonderful photographer and professional, We will recommend her to all of our friends. She left us speechless!!! Very thankful she captured the most important day of our lives. Juliana & Edward"

Liz was just amazing! My sister and I surprised our mother with a family portrait for her 70th birthday. We couldn't have been happier with Liz and her work. She was so easy to work with before we even met. She was a pleasure during the shoot. We had 10 people (4 of which were children), and she was so sweet with everyone. We love the pictures we have and my mother said it was the best gift ever!

I found myself to be an attractive guy; however, all of the photographers I've shot with in the past, some of which included high end photographers, never seem to capture "ME" in my head shots. I'd walk into auditions and the casting directors would do a double take at my photos and I'd have to wait months to be able to afford to re-shoot This just seemed to be an endless cycle. I finally turned to a few of my actor friends whom were booking regularly and several told me about this photographer Melissa Flores Gant. I immediately thought she must be expensive since their photos were getting them work, however she turned out to be extremely affordable! What was refreshing is that she took interest in finding out what I was trying to achieve as an artist, thereby capturing that through my photos. Yeah..it took me a moment to 'GET IT'. Our photos are our calling cards and if you can't portray a few characters in one given shot...then you are just left with costly head shots. I was the worst subject to shoot because I've often been cast as a certain type. Melissa gave me a sweet reality and opened up a whole new world of characters I could realistically portray, some of which my agent haven't even considered. Can you say Ca-Ching$!! That's what I've been shouting out lately with each job I book! And a BIG SHOUT OUT to one of LA's Best photographers Melissa Flores Gant. Marshall Christopher

Ashley is probably one of our favorite photographers ever. She graciously took engagement pictures for us when it was at the most convenient time for our schedules, she already had a place in mind for the shoot, and overall made us feel like it would be a relaxing and pleasant experience going in. Sometimes it's easy to forget how awkward it actually is having posed pictures taken of you and your significant other, but I honestly can't say it felt that way at all for us. Ashley makes you feel no pressure whatsoever, is patient, so so passionate about her work, hilarious (which was helpful so that it was easy to look like we were naturally laughing in photos) and gives you her full attention. I also loved that she was so easy to contact; there were never any "phone tag" or "lost emails" during the course of our communication. Additionally, our photos were edited and given back at an exceptionally reasonable time!! We have a lot of our pictures framed around our house and printed in a professional photo book of us because we loved her pictures so much. Ashely is just the sweetest and the absolute best. The only regret you could ever have with her is to not make her your photographer.

When planning a wedding it's easy to get overwhelmed with all the details! Finding the right Photographer was a big burden on my thoughts. Erin Wyatt exceeded all my expectations & put all my fears to rest. Somehow through her lens she captured all the love & joy between us, not only between us but also in the faces & interactions with our wedding party & guests. Looking back at our wedding photos brings such a smile to my face. I'm so grateful that we found her to be a part of our day!

Jim is one of the best photographers I have ever worked with. He can go out on a shoot alone and come back with great stuff. He always manages to get the best out of people. I have recommended him to many clients through the years and he has retained all of them. Elena Trevino Elena Trevino Design
