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.

Doug was an engaging, polished professional who adapted to the situation and applied artistic license to achieve splendid results on my photos.

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.

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!

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!

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!

Josh was amazing to work with. He’s very professional. His very detailed work spoke volumes to me which is what made me reach out. We had a phone call prior to the family portrait session where he explained the process to me and I shared my concerns about the space limitations. He was very reassuring and on the day of, we did a walk through of the space and he told me what he thought would work well and why. The photos came back fast and were perfect! He’s a true artist. Would definitely hire him again!

Arthur has captured my most memorable moments.... He was the photographer for my maternity shoot as well as my baby shower... Arthur is very professional and detailed. His prices are very affordable and he produces quality service. Arthur was more than willing to spend extra time outside of the time allotted for my session without any extra fee.... I will continue to use him for all upcoming events.

The best experience I have had with a photographer. $60 fee. The next closest I saw was $150, with other prices well upward. He is a real pro. The studio is in his home, but he has backgrounds, a great camera, and an easy manner. He took a dozen or more shots, we looked at them on the computer, figured out what was right, what was wrong and what I wanted. He then took another series of shots, and I found the one I wanted. He did some light editing on PhotoShop, got it in two formats (Low for Internet and High res for printing). What a delightful, charming and professional man. I recommend him very highly.

Thanks to DIM Productions for an amazing experience! Karmin is THE photographer that you want for familial events, sporting events, weddings, and et-cetera. I've hired Karmin a number of times and have never doubted that it was among the best decisions I've ever made. Karmin has impeccable timing, vision and experience to distinguish a great shot from a good one! She's personable, engaging, down-to-earth and just has a way with people that enthralls and disarms them. She's got an uncompromising standard at events and in her private studio. I cannot commend Karmin highly enough! -Al Johnson

Studio Pri is amazing! We hired Studio Pri off of Thumbtack and have absolutely no regrets in our decision since there are so many photographers out here! We also used them for our engagement photos which turned out beautifully! Priscilla and her team are easy going and very personal. They make you feel comfortable taking photos since most of us aren't used to it! Priscilla was very responsive to emails and got back to me within 1 day. They had our wedding photos and engagement photos ready for us within weeks! We are amazed at how good we looked in them and would definitely used their services again. Thanks so much for capturing all the amazing moments at our wedding :D

We hired Lizzy to help us take pictures for my father's 90th birthday. We did a lot of family portraits and singles. We also used Lizzy to take pictures of the event. Lizzy was sweet and very professional. She suggested many ideas during the picture taking process. She was very patient with my father who moved slowly. Thanks Lizzy you were great.

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!

Brian has taken my graduation photos and outpoor portraits and I loved both. He has a great eye for framing the photo with nature, makes sure to take candids, and was really open to changing his style based on what I wanted! He was willing to touch up some photos and gave me access to all shots, there wasn’t a hard limit. Highly recommend.
