I hired Shawn Nichols for a corporate event which took place in late February 2016. Shawn definitely deserves all five (if I could give any more, I would) stars and a glowing review! I will admit I was hesitant to hire someone off Thumbtack – it was my first experience using Thumbtack and I didn’t quite know what to expect – but he blew it out of the park, completely delivered and really exceeded any of my expectations, with his work for this event! Shawn is going places with his photography, professionalism and strong work ethic and I look forward to following his career. Part of me hates to write such a great review for my own selfish reasons – I want him for all of our events! :] Shawn was hired for our annual corporate Employee Appreciation Event, which I fully planned (and attended) for the first year since starting with my company. One of the things I had noticed about previous years’ events was the lack of good photography. I had seen previous years’ photos and thought they really left something to be desired. When I put out a bid on Thumbtack looking for photographers, Shawn’s website and artwork jumped out immediately, I believed he could deliver. I spoke with him first on the phone and let him know what I was looking for – more artistic shots – and his time, thoroughness and genuine excitement was clearly evident from our phone call. It seemed like he was exactly who I was looking for. About a month before the event, I called Shawn and asked him if he could meet me for coffee that week, to have about a fifteen minute meeting to discuss some items for the party. He went out of his way (literally) to be flexible to my schedule and that fifteen minute meeting turned in to over an hour of his time sitting in Starbucks and talking Photography. From there, he then drove with me to Joann Fabrics to hand-select a backdrop for the event that would photograph well and tailored to my vision. This whole afternoon he spent meeting with me and shopping for photography backgrounds was unpaid. He didn’t have to do these extra things, he just did – he was really going above and beyond before the event even took place! Fast forward to the day of the event. Shawn and his two assistants (oh yeah – he brought two additional photographers to help him capture the night. I really felt we got a huge deal here because for the price of one photographer, we really got three! This was just another way Shawn went out of his way to ensure our event success) came a few hours early to set up one of our photography station backgrounds, and the get shots of a list of things before the event started. Leading up to the event, Shawn was incredible thorough in his communications; answering phone calls and emails quickly and in detail. He even thought of details I hadn’t and prompted me to provide a list of shots I wanted to get prior to the event, during the event, asked for an event timeline and for specific individuals whom he and his assistants should be aware of. I really appreciated those questions in retrospect, as I think they really added to the coverage of the event, and with the laundry list of to-dos I had leading up to the party, I appreciated him taking the time and initiative to look out for our ultimate priorities – photography and otherwise. Shawn and his assistants Rachel and Jeremiah were extremely professional, gracious, thoughtful to guests and efficient. They not only succeeded in my hopes for an hour of couple photos as guests arrived, then roaming event coverage; all three of them really went above and beyond to make sure every shot on that shot list was completed. Our guests loved having the backdrop couple photos, and I loved having all three of them there photographing – it was amazing to get the extra coverage during that couple photo hour that I didn’t know we would have! Shawn let me know the timeline of when I should expect photos delivered back, as the party wrapped up that night, but delivered a few days earlier. He met every goal I had with the photography aspect of the event. I told him several times that he was the easiest/best/nicest/most efficient vendor or staff I had working on our event, and I really do mean that. The photos back to me were in several files, so easy to open and access, and ranked by him in order of importance (for me). His love of photography and art is intrinsic and clear in his work. His photographs are beautiful and really highlighted the event for me, my company and so many of our guests. I look forward to having – and using – these photographs for years to come! During the time I was planning the event, and had been working with Shawn, I saw another opportunity come up within my company which I suggested Shawn, and he was hired for. Those pictures came back prior to our event, and when I saw those beautiful photos, I knew i was going to be happy with his work on the event. I can’t say enough great things about Shawn Nichols. You are lucky if you get the opportunity to hire him for any event, wedding, party, or general photography needs. Shawn will make you feel like you are his only client, and will really take your vision and bring it to life. He is so genuine and charismatic and it is wonderful to see someone excel at something they love, and do so well! I look forward to working with Shawn (and hopefully Rachel and Jeremiah too!) on any future business, event or personal photography needs I have!

I am writing this testimonial for a true artist and a professional photographer. I’ve met Jeffrey after enrolling in one of his classes many years ago. I was nicely surprised and very impressed by his knowledge of the subject and his passion for photography which make him a fine photographer. We all know that strategy matters and passion rules. Jeffrey has both in addition to being very creative and meaningful. He knows how to operate a camera, how to use it in order the get the best effect, and always capture the essence of the image. After meeting him as an instructor, I decided to use his service for my professional business because I know he would capture the important as he really gets the thorough picture of what we want to see and get. Photography is an art and Jeffrey is truly a competent photographer and an artist in his field. He is very experienced and knows his camera and any other camera students bring in the classroom. As a teacher, he is able to help you getting to know your camera and using it at its best. As a personal professional photographer, he knows what you need and the result is always impressive.

Daniel Curtean is a talented person of art. As a professional photographer, he has a natural ability to see and capture life moments that say more than thousands of words, moments that tell the story. Daniel has an excellent eye for details - his photos look nearly perfect because of his dedication to capture the moment in its most perfect way possible. My husband and I were very pleased with the photos Daniel took at our wedding! Even in their RAW state, they looked great. And I appreciate the fact that Daniel can photograph anything - nature, portraits, events, architecture - and he knows how to pull the feel and look in any of these areas. After all, a natural photographer is a photographer of all things.

Sheena has taken my professional headshots for modeling, acting and more. I really appreciate how well she captures how I look and is always very helpful in making sure I know what to do. I feel as if she captures my personality in every shot. She is fun, efficient, effective, informative and professional. She creates a low-stress environment and is easy to work with. Sheena is my trusted ‘go-to’ for my photography needs. If you haven't already had her take your photo's, I highly recommend her.

Milad did a great job! I called and arranged for the photo shoot with him after a very short notice. He drove to the venue and arrived more than half an hour before the function. He was professional, patient, respectful and very professional. The quality of his photography was fabulous! I would recommend him to anyone wanting to do a photo shoot. Great guy, great job!

His eye for capturing those special moments is backed by his highest quality gear. His post production has a fun & lively style that brings the moment back into being. Jim is a sweet soul with a golly presence that allows for ease of crowds and personalities ... letting the moment to flow and the photos to glow.

So versatile! Justin can capture perfectly candid moments in natural settings beautifully as well as posed and prepped. He has a dark mysterious side to his fashion based photography, sometimes with a hint of hummer. He works with amazing and inovative designers in costume and makeup. His quality and frame is excellent and he treats the people he works with with the utmost respect. Justin has a deep passion and excitment for photography, and it shows in every one of his photos and it makes him really fun to work with.

Kelly has a lot of talent and an eye for art. Her photographs show it. She wants her customers to not just have pictures but to show the subject in true form. She knows how to capture the love between man and woman, baby and parent, and siblings. I have watched her photography grow for many years and enjoy seeing her photos. You won't be disappointed if you hire her to take photos rather they be a photo shoot or an event.

I would like to share with you my experience with Joey and his professional services. We contracted with Joey to manage our social media for my company, Portola Coffee Lab. We needed a fresh approach and by someone who could immerse himself in our industry to really add meaning to what we were posting. The imagery and content that Joey created really changed our online presence. It was interesting, relevant, and unique. Our Instagram went from mediocre to being nominated for the Best Instagram Account by O.C. Weekly's Best of 2015 contest. Most notable was the transformation of our appearance. The quality of his photography was truly fantastic. I felt his composition took what might be otherwise be an ordinary setting (our coffeehouses) and created something pleasing and artful. He is very creative, but professional. His images were never kitschy or overtly "advertisey." Most notable was the consistency in look he was able to achieve from setting to setting, and image to image. He would always edit the images in such a way that anyone seeing our feed could tell it was Portola created. Our online following jumped significantly under Joey's management. When he relocated, we were sad to see him go. I highly recommend his services for anyone wanting someone who truly takes to time to understand the customers needs and who puts out a top-notch professional product.

We're excited to work with these two fine young ladies! We were impressed with their finished presentations of earlier works and surprised to discover that we will be their first wedding experience! We are honored and very much looking forward to seeing them in the very near future, and discovering the ebb and flow of their creativity during our very special day.
