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.

Tina was exceptional! Her photographs of me for my photo-shoot came out fantastic. Tina was professional, honest, relaxed and exceptionally kind! She also helped suggest positions, cloth and hair which all helped improve my photos significantly. As much as I enjoyed the session, I couldn't have been more thrilled with the results. The photos are better than I had even dared hope for! Sebastian

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!

Doug did an excellent job taking headshots of our small business's management team. He was efficient, personable, flexible, and professional from his first email through our photoshoot and through our receiving the final photos. The final photos of our team turned out wonderfully, as well. I would certainly work with Doug again, and would recommend him to anyone considering hiring him for corporate headshots or other portrait photos.

I needed executive portrait photos quickly and he was able to deliver a superb product within 24 hours of my sitting. I am very pleased with entire experience.

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!

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.

Bill was very nice and spent over an hour taking my professional portraits. He tried a few different lenses and lighting and stuff and was very professional. He also played music, which was nice, and was very flexible about payment options. He even picked me up from the metro station because I came to his studio. I got some really good shots and would recommend him!

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.

amazing photos After comparing different photographers, we decided to go for Monumental Arts and I really thought we would be disappointed. Not at the photographer, but how the pictures would turn out because our son cried the entire session! Kris was very patient with our son and allowed us to try to soothe him. To our surprise, the photographer actually captured good shots of our son!! He was able to capture many non-crying photos! I can't wait to order them! Beautiful newborn photos! Highly recommended!

Highly recommend Greg as a photographer for family portrait. We had a family reunion in Annapolis and thought it would be nice to get a family picture as we are rarely together. Greg was incredibly accommodating, driving down from Baltimore on a Sunday morning. Further, we had two toddlers who were a bit challenging to photograph. Greg was flexible, patient and resourceful (using his expert editing skills to swap their faces with photographs where they were engaged and smiling - looking at the pictures you would have no idea they were edited). Greg is extremely personable, professional and an excellent portrait photographer.

We just wrapped a Glow party for our 10yo and Party Favor Photo was an absolute hit at the party! The kids LOVED the booth and the on site photo prints, plus all the digital adds, including free downloads of all the photos in and out of the template, is an amazing bonus. From start to finish they were completely professional and amazing. They designed a beautiful custom template pre-party to match the theme, and the prints are amazing!!!! Our attendant arrived on time and was really patient and nice, despite a constant influx of young kids. She was also was very helpful in ensuring that all heights were captured:-) When our photo booth rental time was almost done, our attendant was amazing and made sure she grabbed our daughter to take photos with as many people as possible for the last 15 mins! She was paying attention and noticed she had not gotten a lot of shots with her. This meant that we ended up with a ton of photos of our daughter and her friends, which we otherwise would not have gotten. I will definitely use them for the next event I have that uses a photo booth. I highly recommend that you use this company for your photo booth rental.

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!

The Fairy Dust to my magical Winter Wedding!!! Many of my bridesmaids are a bit camera shy, 95 images was quite "up close & personal" in the sense that my girls were VERY relaxed and they raved about the photographers personality. They were telling me they felt like they already knew them for years, allowing 95 images to capture memorable moments. As a bride, many details of the day was a whirlwind, but my photographers made sure EVERY detail was captured. This was especially important to me since I worked on so many details personally for the wedding. The end result .... PHENOMENAL!!! Saying they are the BEST is an understatement!!! And I am not that easily pleased :)

Gabriel “Gabe” Martinez (The Marvelous Real Photography) works very hard for his shots. The lengths he goes to for his pictures, he not only wants them to be the best, but wants to meet his clients’ expectations. Both me and my guests was very impressed with him. After seeing Gabe's photo gallery and discussing my 50th birthday celebration vision with him, I immediately knew he was the one! As requested, he integrated videography to capture the music performances to retain with my event memoirs. I booked Gabe without seeing another photographer and it was the BEST decision! On my big day, Gabe arrived early, set up, and after a quick run through of the event flow with me, I was completely at ease knowing that Gabe would capture shots in a journalistic photography style that I will cherish for years to come. His professionalism, creativity, cheerfulness, and fun-loving interaction with me and my guests created a great atmosphere and experience for everyone. He knows how to make you feel comfortable event while the camera may be surprisingly aimed directly in your face — He makes taking photos fun! During the event, I sneaked a peek at the photo display. Gabe caught me peeking and showed me a few of the shots. The pictures were stunning! With his creative eye, he captured the timeline of my event while shooting photos in the most unique places. I highly recommend hiring Gabriel “Gabe” Martinez (The Marvelous Real Photography) for any engagement. Gabe exceeded my expectations and I will contact him again for future events.

I was looking for a photographer for one of the most important and anxious moments of my life, and with less than 48 hrs to plan and execute. I wanted candid photos of me proposing to my future wife. I am actually from St. Louis, but needed a photographer in DC - and I needed a professional that could nail these shots the first time. If you are looking for a photographer, I very strongly recommend going with Gabe. Not only did he return beautiful shots that our family and friends are still talking about, he was completely responsive and 100% reliable. Gabe worked with me throughout the entire process to make sure that we were on the same page, so that we could accomplish this surprise engagement scenario together. He was able to capture shots without revealing the surprise moment, but was able to get wonderful pictures. Gabe produced quality images that we will cherish our entire lives - and he nailed it the first time. If you need someone solid for your important moment, go with Gabe. - Austin

THIS IS THE PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE DECADE! I come from a huge family and I have been to a lot of weddings and also worked with a lot of photographers in the past. Gabe by far has been the absolute best of the best! He was prompt, he was professional, and he was witty and charismatic all at the same time. Even when photos weren't being taken, he had us all smiling ear to ear. By the end of the night I had a few family members asking for his business card! Loved loved loved him!

Robert was a great wedding photographer for us. I phone interviewed him, had an in-person interview, and heard from 2 of his references about 10 months before our wedding. In the lead-up, he actually reached out to ME, reminding ME that I wanted to touch base with my list of photos, preferences, wedding day details, etc., so that tells me he was on the ball. Once I had the photo list, preferences, etc. documented, he set up a phone call about a week or 2 before the wedding, and we stepped through the timeline, and he advised me how to order the shots, how to make sure family photos go as smoothly as possible, etc. We added one hour to the contract, and the contract change was a breeze. On the wedding day, he was on time and ready to go for our first look. I was an antzy bride, so he dealt with the, "What time is it?" question a lot and didn't seem to mind. (Actually, I was honest about not being crazy about posed pictures to begin with, and he didn't seem offended.) He breezed us through family portraits before the ceremony and then the big family portraits during cocktail hour. I actually had 30 minutes of my cocktail hour thanks to him. I know he was *there,* but I totally didn't notice him during the ceremony or reception. He gave us a heads up when his time was up and thanked us for our business. Per our contract, he delivered preview pictures the next business day--only he provided 14--4 more than contractually obligated. And again, within contract deadlines, he delivered the entire set of photos 5 weeks and 1 day after the wedding. Then we received the CD with the images about 6–7 weeks after the wedding. Out of the 800ish photos he took, I find about 175 to be good candidates for an album. He got great photos and followed my preferences. Very happy with Robert and the photos.

To start with, He is really great. Hands down, great! I am an awkward person but I immediately felt comfortable and confident to have a fun shoot with him in Georgetown. I needed fun and flirty headshots photos for my blog so nothing too serious but he was eager and helpful to tackle the task. He is professional and courteous and his turn around time is quick (seriously its amazing)! I was looking for several photographers but they would all tell me that I get 5-6 photos for double the price. I will always recommend him! Thanks for everything, Robert and I look forward to working with you again!

My company hired Bearashkin for our annual holiday company-wide party, and the pictures turned out very well. The shots rally captured the great atmosphere.We've been hosting this party for over 15 years and it's a pretty big deal, so the board decided to hire a professional photographer for the first time to take pictures for our website and for all of the employees. It was a great experience, there were many great shots and people put them up around the office. The photographers didn't interfere with the fun, but rather enhanced it since everyone wanted snapshots of them and the festivities. Overall, great service and followthfough, we'll probably hire them again for next year's party.

Joshua is one of the best photographers I've ever met. From the beginning of my search for a photographer, Joshua's work and professionalism stood out among the others. While I needed headshots, I also wanted something different, something other than the generic canned ones we've all grown accustomed to seeing. I wanted something casual and spontaneous but certainly not a selfie. As soon as I saw Joshua's portfolio, I knew he was the right one for me. This conviction was confirmed even before I met him in person. Joshua was forthright and proactive in laying out the logistics of what to expect in advance of our appointment. The day of the shoot, he arrived ahead of schedule and allowed enough time to talk with me about his style, his work, and listen to what I wanted and expected. Once the camera started rolling, he made me feel comfortable and at ease and gave me step by step directions of where he wanted me, and what he wanted me to do. I didn't feel like I was posing but stood and acted like I normally do. This gives a much more natural, effective, and stand-out photograph, and I am very pleased with the results. Joshua is friendly, personable, highly skilled at his trade, and very conscientious. He's a consummate professional and has very reasonable rates. I highly recommend Joshua and encourage you to take the time to familiarize yourself with his work. Next time you need a photographer, you now know who to call.

He was incredibly responsive, flexible, and accommodating working around my schedule. The location he chose was simple, perfect, yet modern - exactly what I wanted to convey with professional headshots. During the shoot, he continued to walk me through several poses, and he took his time with me to calm any nerves. He was patient and fun to work with! Hands down the best photography experience I've had, and I will definitely use his services again!

One of the best Photographers the DMV has to offer! We actually came across Jamaal while he was covering my Soror's Wedding in Baltimore this past year! We had been looking for a photographer for the longest time and we were farmiliar with is work, but watching him while he worked is what sealed the deal for us. He floated around the room effortlessly leaving so many smiling faces in his wake, including ours. We didn't even need to see the final photographs, we were already sold(The Photographs were pretty darn awesome too!). We immediately reached out to Jamaal to schedule our engagement shoot and he didn't disappoint! My partner and I were brought to tears by the images. His turnaround is unmatched! (1-2 days). If you're on the fence about booking Jamaal, consider this the push that gets you over the fence. Book him. Now! You will not regret it, we didn't! Not one bit!

For our wedding we wanted a photographer that would be able to take candid pictures of the event and portrait pictures and for it to feel natural. Jamaal did that and much more. His vision and artistry are what differentiate him from any other photographer. We enjoyed our wedding without the pressure of posing for hours and we enjoyed our guests. The pictures Jamaal took reflect those memories and when we look at them, that is what we see. 100% recommend Visuals by J. McKenzie!!!

Oh my God... Where do I begin? Priscilla is hands down the best photographer my husband and I have met. Pri brings so much energy and passion to what she does, that it's contagious. Her customer service from the moment you reach out to when she delivers your images is spot on. She is open to ideas, creativity, and let's you take control of your shoot, if that is what you are into. Dealing with Priscilla is not like dealing with someone you hired to take your pictures, but a friend that just so happens to be taking your pictures. I do not regret a single thing about choosing Pri as our engagement photographer. We are amazed by the results!! We definitely will be recommending her to all our friends and family, and will be using her as our family photographer for years to come. Thanks Pri!

Justin and I started a conversation a little over a week ago. I was looking for a photographer who would be able to take us some couples photos for the holiday season. From the very start, Justin was punctual and he continued to be punctual through to the delivery of the photos. Often times when people hire photographers, people complain that photographers lose momentum once they’ve been offered the gig or once they’ve received payment. This is absolutely not the case with Justin. Justin’s punctuality definitely has been a plus point all the way. I also appreciated that Justin works with clients across varying price points. In addition, I must say Justin’s offer was definitely reasonable given that we’re situated in the DMV. Interacting with Justin, one of the first things I let him know was that I just wanted a quick photo shoot that would be a leg up from our usual selfies. Justin understood exactly what I was expecting out of our photo shoot. Justin and I worked out the details over text, and the photo shoot was quick and effortless. Though I didn’t end up calling him myself, I did pass on Justin’s phone number to a few colleagues of mine - he had such a great offer that I had to share with others! On that note, if you need to hop on the phone to talk details, just ask for his phone number. I am absolutely all about Pinterest and all things Pinterest related. I had ideas of poses but when we met up, my mind sort of went blank (I blame the cold!) and Justin had great ideas which resulted in some beautiful photos of the two of us. I also have to praise Justin’s understanding of space, lighting, and photography concept. Justin took a handful of posed and candid photos, which we both appreciated. Not only is Justin talented, but he is easygoing too. And that’s definitely a plus point when hiring a photographer. If you can’t be yourself around your photographer or if the photographer can’t get you to feel relaxed and at east, then you might as well throw in the towel because you won’t get quality photos. Thank you, Justin, we love love love our photos!! PS: Hire Justin. If my photos are any testament, I’m sure you too will be more than satisfied with yours!

He analyzed the lighting and composition of my samples and recommended the perfect spot for the session. He helped guide us through the session so we knew how to place our hands/tilt our heads, etc. He also honored our extremely tight timeline and got the photos back to us in about 24 hours! Which is completely unheard of, especially given that he had 3 sessions the same day! My husband and I are so pleased with the photos, we couldn’t be happier! I highly recommend Justin, and would definitely book him again in the future!
