Tina does amazing work! She has conducted major photo shoots with famous models and major movies. Her modeling-photo experience really shines through as Tina has master control of all components of her studio -- all components geared to one goal: making you look the best, fabulous! Tina is a very friendly and welcoming person. She motivates you to bring out your best portrait look. She is the best photographer to have ever taken my portrait in my life. I highly recommend her.

Worked with Doug Sanford to photograph actor head shots for my two children. We found him to be the consummate professional. On time. Responsive. And asked several questions to gauge exactly what we were looking for. It was clear from the beginning that he loves his craft. His amazing Silver Spring, MD studio was easy to find with parking conveniently located right behind the building. The studio, itself, was the perfect backdrop for creating something great. I enjoyed watching Doug work as much as I liked the final product. Photography is like creating art for him! He has an amazing ability to capture the soul of a person. Highly recommend!

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!

I am extremely satisfied with my portrait photos taken at Monumental Arts by K. Since I hadn't had a professional photo in awhile the process and options were well explained. There was no rush which allowed for a relaxed session. When I asked, great suggestions were given on my accessory choices. Besides taking great photos, providing numerous pose and background options Monumental Arts provided outstanding customer service. They responded immediately to my emails and texts. The online review and purchase process is so easy. BIG THANKS to ace photographer K, who later quickly helped on a rush order.

William is a true professional in every sense of the word. His expertise in achieving the goals I had for new professional portraits was top notch. He intuitively understood what I was going for before I even said the first word about it. He was flexible with storage options for the photos as well. Being in the spotlight as a magician makes it necessary that I have updated photos for publicity purposes, but I hate mostly every photo of myself but with his extensive knowledge of incredible lighting effects, William was able to create no less than 20 incredible images for me to pick from. I will definitely be making Tamarack Images my go to photographer for all my professional photos from now on and highly recommend that everyone else do the same.

Verified review

After a couple years of making volunteer appearances as Santa Claus, I decided to "go professional". A friend recommended Chris Paulis Photography for taking portraits to publish on my new web site. Chris went above and beyond my expectations, before, during, and after our scheduled photo shoot. Once the portraits were published on my web site, talent agents were highly impressed with the iconic images that Chris was able to capture and the resulting opportunities for me to portray Santa Claus were amazing. Most of my clients attributed their interest in my services to the heartwarming portraits taken by Chris Paulis.

A rating of "5" for Photo Genesis is simply not high enough!!! I was VERY impressed with every aspect of their service. Basically, out of a 5 point scale...I would give it a 10+. Jose, (the photographer) was prompt, courteous, and extremely professional. He indeed knows the art of photography. Although they advertise a 3 day turn time...I received all taken pictures within 24 hours...and THEY WERE AEWSOME!!! Again, to Jose and the company...my highest kudos!!! I recommend them to all.

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.

He came to my house to do some portrait-type photography. I appreciated that Joe was relaxed and friendly and didn't seem rushed. I got the photos back from him very quickly. He was helpful in suggesting good backgrounds as well. I was very pleased with the end result. I think he'd make a great family photographer also.

Our banquet pictures came out fantastic and the prints were sent to our company in a timely fashion. I highly reccomend Zach and will be looking forward to working with him in the future!

Michelle did my college graduation photos, she was absolutely amazing! I did my photographs with my two roommates when the sun was almost at the highest point in sky and yet she made it work. She knew how to direct us so that we weren't all washed out, and instead highlighted us in some of the best ways by using our surroundings to accent our features. I would suggest her services to anyone looking for a reasonably priced photographer for great photography.

I've had the pleasure of modeling for some of his portrait and figurative series. His creativity, I believe, comes from his exploration of new and fresh approaches to fine art photography. He is a great photographer, and also a wonderful host making one feel right at home.

Hands down best photos ever!!! I'm always looking at her pics thinking how beautiful they are. They are more than pictures they become art, by the time she's finished. i'm in love with the pictures she took of my children, family, and of me and my fiancé. She understands light and contours and sees stuff that most can not....I love her photos just take a look there is no denying it, she knows what she doing. Lindsey is sweet and professional...pleasure to work with and very versatile and innovative.

Mark worked on a very small project for me involving moving an art image into digital representation for use in printing. Mark was timely and precise in his effort and the results were really good. I plan on using Mark in the future for additional projects as they arise.

Calvin Hayes is the ultimate professional. He is punctual, passionate about his work and his clients and he has a great personality and energy. His photography is the icing on the cake. His photos tell your events story in a sophisticated and clean manner. He has mastered the art of seeing details and beautiful lighting which makes his imagery so consistent and lovely. Calvin's portraits are equally as stunning and I highly recommend him.

Jeff Brooks is one of the greatest photographers in the DMV area. We hired Jeff to take our Christmas family photos, a yearly tradition. Not only did Jeff arrive in time, he patiently waited for members of our family who were running late. We have a large family of eleven (six adults and five kids) and two dogs. Jeff was able to capture many good shots, irrespective of the frequent moves of three toddlers and two wandering dogs. We enjoyed our photo session with Jeff, which ran overtime. Jeff's exceptional customer service skills, patience, and keen eye are only a few of his qualities. We will be hiring Jeff for all our photography needs.

About

I am a newborn, baby, and child photographer specializing in fine art portraits of your favorite little people. I love photographing your child skipping in mud puddles, throwing a tantrum, staring soulfully into the camera, or giving me the cheesiest grin known to man. I believe in photos being blown up big on your wall. I believe that newborn lips are kissable. I also believe that all newborns look totally different from one another and that baby bottoms are the cutest thing in this world. I think that a moody toddler with wild hair is an amazing little person. Your child and I could have a lot of fun exploring the outdoors or making silly faces at each other in my home studio. I also love taking photos of parents and children interacting -- raw and uninhibited. I can make you feel sexy in your own skin as you cuddle your new little one skin to skin. I would love to start a relationship with you and your child.

About

Mark Lovett Photography and studio originally evolved out of my love for painting. As an artist, I have always been passionate about value, composition, and especially lighting. I approach each image as if it were a fine painting master piece. I specialize in beautiful soft natural lighting, but I am also a wiz at dramatic uses of off camera flash and other effects. I still get chills when I see the reactions of my clients to their images. That is what it is all about for me! Please also check out my oil paintings at my website. I thank you in advance for your interest.
