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 Barnes is amazing and I HIGHLY recommend him / his company! We hired him to do on-site hair styling (updos) for my daughter's Sweet 16 party, and ended up also hiring him for our event photography needs as well! He was extremely kind, professional, flexible, handled our needs with immaculate precision, and his hairstyling exceeded our expectations by much! We simply showed him the hairstyles we wanted and he was able to make our hair look gorgeous! Thank you for EVERYTHING, Winstead! We will stay in touch and contact you for our future needs as well!

Tyler is awesome! There is no better way to describe his work. He has an extremely professional approach and like the best photographers is always present but never there. The pictures he took were absolutely stunning. We got so many compliments on the photographs and the way he captured every special moment was amazing. The use of light and scenery was the best I have ever seen. I think Tyler will be photographer for special events for a long long time.

About

The Art Photography's purpose first and foremost, in both a historical and conceptual sense, is to record time and place. Though visual art has always transformed three-dimensional space into two dimensions, photography, for the first time in written history, has married science and art to create mechanically accurate but a humanly emotional archive of time. The Artist Photography, when studied as a language, is perhaps the most impactful and purest form of communication: it transcends verbal and written language, objectifies both time and space, and is, at the same time, both art and fact, both beauty and information. I do commercial photography on a personal scale as well as product, event, real estate, and image assignments. Be it the classic headshot, a senior portrait with an edge, or unobtrusive photography of an event, we endeavor to bring artistry to the image. I also have a long history as a teacher of fine arts photography.

About

I met Laurie at a showcase of photographers and instantly saw her work was the style I was looking for to capture our wedding. After chatting a few minutes, I knew I wanted to work with her. My husband-to-be was not a fan of having his picture taken. I knew this was going to make the day challenging, but Laurie was a true professional. She was able to get great shots of us without a lot of fussing. It was important to us that she not be intrusive and allowed us to enjoy our wedding and reception while still capturing our memories. She understood what we were looking for and delivered perfectly. I was impressed when Laurie first arrived that she quickly scouted the property for the best locations to shoot. She arrived early enough so this did not take away from the time we had for pictures. Laurie was friendly, professional, and blended very nicely with the group. Our pictures tell a great story of a beautiful day, thanks to Laurie's vision.

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.

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!

Zach Miller was hired as an event photographer for a recent performance where I performed with my jazz band at the Kennedy Center as part of the DC Jazz Festival. The job was one hour. Had spoke to Zach several days before the event due to the restrictions on Photography at the Kennedy Center. Zach was on time and very professional. When I received the finish photos the quality of his work was good. Though Zach was limited on where he could shoot from, the only thing I would have improved would have been the number of close up shots. He shot a range of great long (wide) shots of the band but I would have preferred an equal number of shots at a closer range with a zoom lens where he could have captured more of the emotion of the faces of me and the band members during the performance.

Maria was great! She was a pleasure to work with and got wonderful pictures of our event. With a large group setting at a bar, often time people just get pictures of guests being drunk, but she got great pictures that showed good fun and didn't just like like drunk pictures! Would hire again for sure!

I am a freelance director and have hired Damien multiple times as my Director of Photography for short documentaries, fiction films and music videos in the Washington DC and New York areas. It is truly a pleasure working with him for his professionalism, creativity and his vast technical knowledge and skills were impeccable. I can trust Damien to not only capture my vision but to reinforce it with his innate artistic eye. He is able to problem solve on set and is flexible to any changes made throughout the production. Finally, his quality of work is at a high industry standard no matter the budget size. I strongly recommend him!

Gail Kapsambelis of Istoria Productions is professional and reliable. She gets right back to you with any questions and arrived one hour before start time to be prepared--even captured the limo pulling up to the restaurant (she stood out in the cold)! I chose Gail to photograph Mom's 90th Birthday Celebration at Tio Pepe Restaurante in Baltimore.Gail blended in well with family /friends, taking personal photos that did not interfere with the event or conversations of the guests. Her photos are creative and exquisite! Her suggestions helped to create great memories for my Mom and Gail was open to any comments that I had. Gail is an outstanding communicator and easy to work with. I would recommend her for any event and would definitely use her services in the future. Gail has a great style! R, SCL

About

If it needed to be said: I highly recommend booking Vox, if you're looking for an excellent photographer for ANY event/occasion/whim. Just book him! You'll see what I mean. Whether you have a concept in mind, or are coming in with a blank slate, there is very little that can't be asked of Vox. 9 times out of 10, the end product will far exceed your expectations, and that 10th time that it doesn't? He has no problem doing what needs to be done to ensure that it DOES. It's very seldom that you'll find someone as professional, punctual, and personable, in this industry or otherwise. Initially, I was skeptical: people can't actually be that efficient AND balanced! After eating my words, it turns out I was wrong. His work AND work ethic really IS above reproach. In the year that we've sporadically worked together, I've found on several occasions, that if I need something specific, well-done, or in a very limited time-frame, he is the top of the list of the people that I can rely on to get that accomplished, without a doubt.

Mark came to my location for the head-shot session (which was a big help for me time-wise). He was most accommodating and had great suggestions. He took a number of photos and provided the proofs that very night (real fast!). I am quite pleased with their quality and his service, and I found his price very fair. I recommend Mark. He really knows his business.
