  1. #1 Pure Light Images

    (75 reviews)

    Christy S.

    Laurie was great to work with, professional and did an outstanding job with the photos for my son's engagement party. Although she is located in Baltimore she came down to Arlington Virginia for our event without any problem. She was reliable and delivered exactly what she agreed to in the time period she said she would. Also, the finished product was fantastic!! I can wholeheartedly recommend Laurie and Pure Light Images!!!

  2. #2 Primtyme Photography

    (53 reviews)

    Angie W.

    Tony & Sheila were great! It's just been a little over a week and with the volume of shots they took we haven't seen anything yet but I'm confident that we will be extremely pleased. I know several guests have been pestering me to see a special picture that they asked them to take. I too can't wait, but they were professional and on-time and worked with me to give me the experience that I was comfortable with since I tend to be camera shy.

    Deb and Carol were incredible! They came to shoot a professional event for 5 hours in the 100 degree heat and were such troopers. They were punctual, professional, and I'm sure I will get great photos back.

    Writing this 1 day after the wedding : Super professional- didn't "stick out" or be intrusive w the wedding. Rolled with the rhythm of our "less than traditional ceremony and family weirdness". Really looking forward to seeing the photos in a few weeks !

    (24 reviews)

    Jenna D.

    Everything with pictures went so smoothly on Matt and I's wedding day. Michelle captured some amazing shots and all of the ones she sent for a sneak peak were perfect. The picture quality is stunning and she does fabulous work. Everyone commented on how nice she was and she really made her way around the reception to capture everything we wanted. She worked with us the months leading up to the wedding to make sure we had a list of shots we wanted and how the day was going to run. I was very pleased with Michelle and I would definitely use her again for more photography sessions!

  9. #9 Adrienne Eichner Photography

    (23 reviews)

    Haley M.

    The photos that Adrienne took were great. She was easy to communicate with, she responded to any emails I had within 24 hours. I wish there would have been more direction provided by her when taking wedding party photos. We also felt at times that her business was more concerned about her reviews online than what my husband and I wanted from her services. Overall, the photos turned out great, just a few hiccups along the road.

    (21 reviews)

    Steven S.

    Really really amazing and talented photographer, and just a really cool guy. I used John for my wedding, and in additional to the great stage photos, he captured some really amazing action photos; that almost did seem staged. They are my favorite. He also was able to take these photos in incredibly low light. If you're lucky enough to book him; get him before he's reserved. Thanks John!

Thumbtack Spotlight

Grace Wang Photography

(3 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I take photos mostly for weddings and engagements. The most amazing part of this job is I can benefit from the couple's happiness. I have taken photos for over 50 couples, and I enjoy sharing my experience with new couples to enrich their wedding plans. It is simply a job full of pleasant moments and sweet people.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

2 years ago, my photographer friend could not be back from a trip to take photos for his clients' wedding. He asked me for help. That was my first wedding photo shooting. The bride was so elegant. I fell in love with this job at once. Now, I have my own wedding photography business and a second photographer. To produce beautiful photos for couples to show to their friends and families is our forever goal.

    GMS Photo And Video LLC

    (73 reviews)

    I was looking for photographer for my wedding, when one of my friend recommended me to GMS. Robert helped me with everything and set me up with Michael, who did my wedding photographs. I loved their service. Michael showed up before time and started on the photographs and upon request he even stayed late and did some of the single shots I wanted to do. I highly recommend GMS for photos and videos to anyone who is interested in getting great customer service and an outstanding photographs and videos taken. Thank you guys for the excellent service.

    Heidi Saylor Photography

    (38 reviews)

    Heidi did a great job, we are so glad we chose her to be our wedding photographer! She was easy to communicate with from the beginning and she made my husband and I feel relaxed while we were taking photos. My favorite thing about Heidi was her ability to get natural looking shots of us even though we were posing for the camera. She gives good direction but also allows her clients to do their own thing, which makes for a natural looking photo. She got great shots of my husband and I, our bridal party, our families, and some fun ones of our guests at the reception. Heidi is very efficient and had the pictures ready for us to view within a week! I was impressed with her talent and ability to carry it out in a professional, timely, and creative manner. Thanks Heidi!

    Victoria Ruan Photography

    (6 reviews)

    Victoria is a gifted photographer and an absolute joy to work with! We hired her to do our engagement and wedding photographs. I could not be more pleased. During the engagement shoot, Victoria made us feel really comfortable and not too posed as she took beautiful photo after beautiful photo! She has a photojournalism style which comes across as high quality and artistic. Victoria was great at giving direction on the da of the wedding too, and getting people grouped in an asthtic way. She has a highly personable, friendly approach and took a lot of time getting to know us as a couple, our story, and what we were looking for. She spent the entire day with us and captured such wonderful memories. I can't wait to hire her again for the next big event!

  • Wedding Reception & Ceremony Photography

    Mark Zaruba Photography

    (2 reviews)

    Having mark capture our Wedding was the best decision I made. During the ceremony it was like he wasn't there, but after seeing the pictures and the moments he captured, it was evident that not only was he indeed at our Wedding, he captured every beautiful moment and more. A lot of moments, I, as the bride, did not even see that day. The pictures afterward came out amazing and he is wonderful to work with. I wanted to make sure I had beautiful pictures, but I am not the one to stand for hours on end for photographs. Mark not only made the pictures after the wedding painless, he made them fun. He made sure to get all of the photos I wanted, suggested a bunch more (that realistically were a lot better than the ones I wanted), and set up some really artistic shots. I am blown away by the photographs and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a good photographer. Note: After the wonderful experience and photos from my wedding, I will be having Mark capture all of our life's moments including the welcoming of our first child. Thank you, Mark!

    James of Massa Photography Shot my wedding in October of 2010. His photos where out of this world. I couldn't believe how great they came out. The Images went so far above what was on his website. Since then I have had him shoot my Oldest daughters senior Portraits and a special set for my new husband. My husband is also talking to him about doing some graphic designs for the Church Choir that he belongs to that does specialty concerts. James is talented and friendly. He is always on time and will make sure you are happy and comfortable before his work is done.

    Mantas was absolutely wonderful to work with. My fiancé and I wanted a fresh/unique photographer to capture our civil ceremony at the Jefferson Memorial. Mantas made sure he caught the essence of the day, and delivered fun, fresh and beautiful pictures that really captured the moments we lived that day. We also did the engagement photo session which was so much fun and got really great pictures that we absolutely love. You really can tell Mantas loves photography and he wants to make sure he can give you the best product possible. I highly recommend him if you want pictures that capture the emotions of your special day and like photojournalism or clean/ contemporary pictures for your wedding.

  • Wedding Photo Documentary

    Rod Lamkey Photography

    Hi! I'm an award winning, seasoned photojournalist who uses his story telling skills to create a photo reportage of your day. I'd like to tell you a little story of why the photography of a wedding, or any personal milestone is so important. In February of 2010, I went to Haiti in the weeks after the historical earthquake that destroyed much of that country. One day , I met an interpreter named Junior, a bright young man hired by members of the press corps. Junior is a sweet soul, unassuming, slim, soft spoken, kind. I asked Junior if he had a car for work. He said "No, I sold my car to bury my wife." He asked if I wanted to see his wedding pictures. Reaching from his wallet he pulled out three small pictures of he and his bride. There they were, she was so beautiful in her white dress. Smiling. Happy. Junior was handsome in his tuxedo. They smiled and looked into the camera. Well I was beside myself. And Junior reached out and said "It's okay, it's okay." I looked at his wedding day photographs in his calloused hands, and he was so gentle with them, carefully placing them back into his wallet. This is why the photography of a wedding is so important. It matters. It's sacred. There are people gathered together who may never see each other again. The rings, they only go on but once, there is only one cake cutting, one first dance. When the day is over, the photographs remain, they are the anchor to your memories.
