I hired Stan to shoot our large company holiday party. He was quick to respond to my posting and very accommodating with examples of his work and honored the rate he quoted on Thumbtack, which many others tend to backtrack on once you show interest. Setting everything up with him was easy and seamless, made me feel confident that he'd be pleasant to work with... and he was! He showed up on time to the event, introduced himself and verified what the focus of his shots should be, and quickly got to work. What can I say? Stan's photography is FANTASTIC. Our party was in a 3 floor space and included a rooftop terrace, and he was all over the party, collecting amazing candids and group shots, catching great angles and interesting pairings. The venue had a lot of moody, low-lighting and Stan amazed me by still being able to use flash that was flattering but not overpowering. We had over 200 people in attendance - many of them costumed - as well as intricate decoration and themed catering so there was a lot to capture, and he also got GREAT shots of the space to show the scale of our event. Stan was in touch with me the day right after our party, sending sample shots as he was editing them, and uploaded everything into our Dropbox folder for easy access. I would absolutely hire Stan again!
