Verified review

If it were possible to give a perfect 10 star review, I would give it to Doug. He was friendly, flexible, fun and very affirming. I am a minister and Wedding Officiant (I Wed You, LLC) and wanted some professional headshots. Due to my busy schedule I had to change my appointment a few times and Doug kindly accommodated my requests. His positive manner made the photo-shoot process fun and his fee was reasonable. I am a wedding professional Thumbtack vendor so when I needed a professional photographer I turned to Thumbtack and found Doug Sanford. I was very pleased with the photos he took and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him. Thanks Doug and thanks Thumbtack!

We were SO thankful to find Monumental Arts and K on such short notice - we had our wedding in a museum in Alexandria and our friend, an amateur photographer, fell through just 2 weeks before our February 21st wedding - I was so scared because the wedding photos are SO important to me, I even still have my parents album and their wedding picture at home! He met with us and we discussed our wedding plans, laid out our timeline, and he showed me the most beautiful wedding albums and enlargements from weddings he photographed before - my fiancé even liked them! We decided right then and there Even though we were just having a shorter wedding, nothing all day, we still went with his more expensive collection (I think it was the Sapphire Collection) because we knew we would be getting an album and wanted two photographers. He showed up on the wedding day and walked us through everything we asked for - even suggesting some outdoor pictures I didn't expect to get because the weather turned out beautiful!! Plus, he stayed an extra 30 minutes after things starting running behind, which was so nice of him. We are so thankful for his work and professionalism! We met with him to discuss the photos we want in our album and to order enlargements, and he made it so easy to do everything. I have two other friends getting married this year in Northern Virginia, and we've definitely recommended K and his team to them!

After a LONG search, covered with other companies that charged so much, I finally found Party Favor Photo for my wedding. Not only did they provide a reasonable price, but their photo gallery looked amazing. On our wedding day they were EASILY one of the highlights of the night! We had Alex help us out and he was very detailed yet easy going with our guest. As the last vendor we booked for our wedding this was a crucial one. Thank you so much!

Chris is most professional and creative. His work is outstanding, excellent and unique. He did my daughter's senior portraits outdoors and included candid shots that are my favorite even now 4 years later. He then took photos of my children outside in beautiful historic scenery. I also have his photo of a lighthouse hanging in my living room. My daughter and fiancé have now hired him to take their wedding photos. It will be a day to remember and I know we can trust Chris to bring those memories to life in pictures. He is 'c'est magnifique!' Chris you are just the best out there!

My husband and I were so very fortunate to have Robert as our photographer for our wedding 11/20/16. Robert photographed our ceremony and reception which were held at two different locations, and took time with us to set up outdoor shots to capture the beautiful fall scenery. Robert captured the beauty of our surroundings and wonderful moments between my new husband and I as well as our family and friends. He is very detail oriented and professional, and honestly, just a really fun guy : ) Our full album was ready before the suggested date! Robert even gave us a glance at half of our pictures before they were all developed. This was such a pleasant surprise as we were right in the middle of the very busy holiday season. Thank you Robert for being a part of our wedding day and sharing your talent with us. We now have the best memories in an album!

Josh is an amazing artist, professional, and overall person! He is amazing at what he does and I could not have been happier with having him as my wedding photographer. He is so easy to talk to and so easy to work with. From the moment I talked to him on the phone I knew he was the one I wanted for my big day! I cannot express how great the photos turned out and for such an amazing price. He is my go to photographer for any future events!

Jamaal, is absolutely wonderful!! He was extremely professional, on time, and such a pleasure to work with. Jamaal knew exactly what I wanted and he understood exactly how momentous this occasion was for me. My photos are absolutely gorgeous and will last for a lifetime. He even had additional photos available that were so unexpected and beautiful. Jamaal gets the assignment, and captured moments. Everyone keeps asking me who was the photographer???He is insightful, considerate, smart, and sharp. He gets the energy in the room and everything needed for a wonderful photo shoot. You won't regret hiring Jamaal. I'm hoping to use Jamaal for most of my work if he is available, and he will definitely be the photographer at my future wedding!! Whenever that happens! LOL

James was great! We wanted to take "Fake Wedding Photos" because our wedding photographer managed to not take any photos of me and my husband. We wanted Cherry Blossom photos, but not in DC. There was a place I REALLY wanted, but did not suggest it when looking for a photographer. Jim suggested the place I wanted, I had seen and liked his work previously, and his rate was much better than I expected. I am also a photographer, and was shocked how quick and professional he was. And he got GREAT photos of My husband, daughter.

I could not have asked for a better photographer for my wedding. Not only is she an amazing photographer but she's the biggest sweetheart I've ever met. EVERYONE at my wedding loved Priscilla and the group she brought. I want to have another event where I need a photographer just so I can hire her again!! I don't even know what else to say because my experience was beyond perfect. I encourage everyone to use Priscilla with absolutely no hesitation.

Rachel is a real pro - if you are looking for beautiful, real, crisp, clear portraits, engagement and wedding photos, family photos - anything - look no further. Rachel instantly made me feel at ease in front of the camera and knew exactly how to guide my fiance and I to capture authentic and natural photos. She is brilliant at using natural light, too. We could not be happier!

Sarah is amazing. Super nice and very professional. She offered to help with whatever I needed to make my wedding day special. She delivered my pictures as promised in less than a month. Great quality. She was able to maneuver around to get pictures without being in the way even with the small space she had to work with. I will definitely be using her again. Thanks Sarah!!!

I called Dan to shoot my sister's wedding. It was a small affair, but we wanted to get a professional so my sister could have a little something on her special day. He arrived a bit early so he could get to look around the place and he found a great spot for family photos near the court. The photos turned out amazing and we couldnt be happier!
