About

Beyond impressed with Tina's incredible talent and flawless ability behind the lens. She spends careful time and does not make you feel rushed in front of the camera. She goes the extra mile to ensure you are most comfortable at all times. She was also one of the nicest, most friendly, energetic and trustworthy photographers I've worked with! I am thrilled with the final product and her creative touch added to my port.

About

I found Doug on Thumbtack and was pleased to have him photograph my wedding this past October. First, I was so pleased to meet him before hand and see more of his work so I knew what to expect. But more than that, I realized that Doug is an exciting, interesting, and cheerful person which made the experience even better. He has an artistic eye and really made some beautiful memories that made me excited to have him shoot my big day! During the day, Doug captured fantastic moments and was flexible when we wanted him to get a specific person or time. He was over all energetic and cheerful! I had a few friends that are amateur photographers also take pictures for us and Doug took the time to answer some of their photography questions and giving them tips - going above and beyond his call... Finally, my pictures came out beautiful and in a timely manner. I can't thank him enough for capturing our day and producing this precious keepsake!

Winstead is an outstanding photographer! This was my very first photo shoot and he prepared me for it exceptionally! He recommended the type of attire I should bring, he recommended how to pose, which stances to make and when! In the end, the pictures looked prolific! Crazy part is, you get so much outstanding service and his price is the most competitive out of all the other thumbtack photographers recommended to me! Save yourself the hassle and stress--hire Winstead and you'll be glad you took this recommendation! Be blessed!

About

I've been working with Kym for several years and couldn't be happier with the service she and any of her other photographers have given us. She has gone above and beyond with my requests for wrestling photographs, either from the ACC Championships or the NCAA Championships, getting me images after each session that we can use on our web site, and then send us a CD at the end of the event with everything. She's always a pleasure to deal with and if I could rate her with 6 stars, I would.

GMS Photo and Video provided both photography and videography for our wedding. Rob was one of the photographers and the person we communicated with from beginning to end. He was extremely accommodating and understanding during the entire event. It rained at ceremony time for our outside wedding and he made sure as soon as the sun was out we were able to capture some pictures outside. He has also gone above and beyond with offering to do family pictures since he knew we were unable to capture all of the family pictures due to the weather. I would highly recommend using his services if you want someone professional and solely focused on customer service and making your day special.

Arlie is SIMPLY AMAZING. I highly and enthusiastically recommend her. I used to coordinate photo shoots in NYC for a big brand in the fashion and beauty industry, so I’ve worked with a lot of photographers, and I’m pretty picky when it comes to photography. When I saw Arlie’s work, I was impressed, but when I hired her for my business’ commercial shoot and had the pleasure of working with her, I was blown away. From the initial planning of the shoot to the actual day, she exceeded my expectations. She had fantastic ideas, knew exactly how to achieve the look I wanted, and gave helpful direction when posing. Arlie puts forth a great deal of effort to get the right shot, is an excellent communicator, and shows you the shots as you go to make sure you’re pleased. She has calm, soothing presence and a friendly demeanor, which is a big plus on any shoot. She delivered the proofs in a timely manner and I have tons of wonderful shots to choose from. - Paige

About

As a Communications Director I have worked with many photographers and Jose was one of the best! He was punctual and worked easily and patiently with a multi generational group ranging from 14 months to 75 yrs. (and a dog). He had a great sense of lighting and where to place people and was able to work quickly, but not hurriedly because the photos were taken outside and it was cold. He gave us the images very quickly and everyone loves them! I'll definitely use Jose again for both personal (as this session was) and professional photography needs.

Shelia and Tony were amazing, they kept in constant contact with me from the day we contacted them but they were so helpful during my ceremony and were personable to not just me but all of my guests. They took amazing photos and are so reasonably priced! I couldn't have asked for more friendly or professional photographers!

About

Garrett Strang did an outstanding job of photographing my special event. When I was in the process of selecting a photographer, Garrett was one of the few that provided samples of his work on a website that made it an easy decision to select him, having not worked with him before. He offered a simple plan to photograph as many shots as wanted and I got to select the shots I wanted him to take. His pricing was reasonable and he was very easy to work with. Following the shoot Garrett reviewed, edited, color balanced and white balance all photos. He then gave all of the best photos from the shoot as high resolution JPEG images that were delivered through an online transfer. Finally, he gave me ownership of all rights of the photos from the shoot, which many other photographers did not offer. I am so glad that I selected Garrett Strang to photograph my event. I now have a beautiful lasting collection of photographs that I can be proud of for years to come!

I was first interested in Erik's cityscapes, but was blown away by his work in portrait photography. Its hard to find photographers who are able to capture both genres so intensely with such rich quality. Erik also has the ability to capture what his clients want without losing his artistic twist on his work. I would definitely recommend him professionally as well as personally.

About

I used Carrie for Passport photos and she did a good job. We did not have any problems and she guaranteed that they would be accepted, or she would print a second set of images. If they were rejected the second time she would refund our payment. Our country rules are unusual, and no other photographer would charge under $160 for the photo or guarantee their work. Also most people and photographers old me their photos had been rejected many times. Carrie said only one was ever denied., but because I a problem with the paperwork, not the photo.

About

Java Mur Photography provides a wide range of creative photography services to best meet your needs and tell your special story. Although we shoot many weddings, we are also available for other types of special events, portraits, as well as journalistic and commercial photography. Just recently, we were awarded number one among the 10 best affordable photographers in Baltimore. Our special Thumbtack wedding package rate starts at $1700 for an 8-hour photo coverage and includes 300 complimentary high-resolution digital files with rights to print. In our experience, we find that 8 hours is often a good balance between covering the majority of the wedding day activities and maximizing our couple's photography investment. On average, it takes about 8-10 hours to cover from the last 30 minutes of getting ready through the last formal reception activities (usually the cake cutting or bouquet/garter toss). We do offer shorter wedding day coverage for a minimum of 2 hours for intimate weddings or elopements. Popular add-ons include albums, engagement photos, a photo booth, and/or rehearsal dinner coverage. Thank you for considering our services. We are glad you took the time to check out Java Mur's art. We love keeping our clients happy; so please drop us a line or send us a message, and we will custom design a service that will put a smile on your face.

About

It was an amazing experience working with Miranda. I hired two Photographers as I needed to get extensive videography as well. To my surprise Mirandas shots were so amazing and far far better than another more experienced photographer carrying expensive lenses. Her shots showed her passion and zeal towards her work. The still video she has made for me make me feel more connected to the memories than the whole video taken by the other. I got the chance to compare but generally people wont. I would without any doubt recommend her one hundred percent 😊👍 Ashima

Rob from GMS is an incredibly talented photographer who is exceedingly professional, courteous, and honest. He was a joy to communicate with throughout my project (50 home pictures) and I am thrilled with the high quality work product that he produced. Rob takes pride in his craft and it shows. I very highly recommend Rob to anyone looking for an exceptionally talented, professional and fair priced photographer. I was so impressed with his work, I paid him more than his quote. He earned it.

About

I am a Washington DC-based portrait and wedding photographer. Photography is my art and I love to get connected with people and have the honor to tell their story throughout my lenses. People have different visions when hiring a photographer, it is my passion to see those visions and capture them with impeccable photographs. I am a certified PPA member (Professional Photographers of America). I passed the rigorous certification test (5% of professional photographers have it) and today I have a very dedicated and serious team working with me. I define my style as free style, fun and adaptable to people. I prefer to shoot outside, rather than in a studio. The results from natural light, or seeing the clients in their favorite places (their home or places important to them), although technically arduous, provides me with the perfect setting to capture real passion in my storytelling photos.

We have used Cortney now three times. Two for holiday photos and once for First Holy Communion photos. Let's just say that holiday cards get rave reviews from everyone that receives them - and we are often asked, "who did your photos" She is very affordable, reliable and love the fact that we receive the CD with photos and copy of each photo as part of the package! She does a nice job of collaborating what you may want as far creative shots/locations. One of my daughters is less photogenic then the other and she always manages to get several nice genuine shots out of her. Will the 140+ shots she takes you have a good chance of getting some awesome pics of your kids/family that you could never get unless you were of course of photographer yourself! I definitely recommend Cortney and will certainly user her again!

I used Kristie for a quick portrait session for me and my husband back in August. She was punctual, really nice, and I was very happy with my photos. She gave us more photos than we thought, which I thought was nice. I have referred her to my daughter and fiancé. I wish her the best.

If you are looking for photographers who are professional, patient, and affordable, look no further than Purpleppl Media. I have used them a few times for family portraits and my moms 60th birthday party. Not only did they provide quality, professional pictures, but they were beyond patient with my young daughter. We have gone to several other photographers in the past for family pictures, but have not been as pleased as we were with the experience that they provided for us. As it relates to my mom's birthday shindig, the Purpleppl Media photographers (3 of them) arrived an hour in advance to set up and take different shots of the birthday celebrant and family, and played with the scenery of the event as their backdrop. They inquired as to different types of shots we would like during the course of the event and needless to say - THEY DELIVERED!!!! My mom was quite pleased with her pre-celebration photo shoot and loved the candid moments that these photographers were able to capture. I can honestly say we will never use another photographer in town but these wonderful professionals.

Mr. Harrison and his Assistant were a God send. I do travel some times to different states as a Coordinator. I used your site to select a photographer on my trip to Maryland. Mr. Harrison was courteous enough to meet with my client prior to the event. Once I arrived in Maryland and met Mr. Harrison myself, he was a perfect fit for our event. Extremely professional and prompt. I highly recommend Mr. Harrison and if at all possible will be using him in the very near future.

We just got back our photos from our engagement shoot on Roosevelt Island. I could not be happier or more comfortable with Ashlee. She showed up on time, got the pictures we wanted, and overall made us feel so comfortable getting our picture taken (My fiance hates having his picture taken, but he was voguing for the camera by the end of it). I would recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding/engagement/etc... photographer in the DC area. I cannot wait to see the pictures she gets from our wedding next summer! She has a laid back vibe, which we love love love, but might not work well with everyone. If there is anything wedding planning has taught me, it is to know who you can work with/how you work best.
