Nicole Vega with The Still Life Photography was the best vendor of my wedding. She fit in with my crazy Italian family and got all the shots and more that I could have hoped for. She was incredibly flexible when our timeline become confused and we were running very behind. I have received nothing but compliments about our album that was personalized and embroidered. Also important to us was a USB drive of all images and rights to all of photos so even a year after our wedding we can (and have) taken that to create custom images for family Christmas presents and for ourselves to enjoy. Even with all the amazing service and perks, she was still also the most affordable bid we received. She worked with us (and our budget) to make sure we weren't sacrificing anything and that we didn't break the bank. I would highly recommend Nicole and The Still Life Photography to anyone needing a photographer to capture your special moments.
Isaiah is very professional and open to new as well as unique shooting ideas. Though his schedule was tight, he was able to get me in with no problem. His work ethic is impressive and seems to have the "over and beyond" mentality to make sure his clients are satisfied. Calm and collected- I will certainly be working with him in the future!
Emil was great to work with! He did my engagement and wedding photos and they turned out great! My husband and I were very pleased. I would definitely recommend VisualEtiquette Photography.
Philip was wonderful to work with and I highly recommend his photography services. He was flexible about scheduling sittings for both my children's individual pictures and very patient. He provided suggestions ahead of time for us to consider and this pro-activeness made our sittings great experiences. The photos turned out wonderful and I have received many compliments on them. I will schedule Philip for our future professional photography needs.
To any and all future WS Photography clients, I work as an event planner for an event company in NYC that does weddings, corporate, parties, etc. Since, my company has a preferred resident wedding officiant and at the time a preferred photographer that brides and grooms really like, I was going to use them for our wedding day. My wife after seeing their work did not like it. It was probably her best contribution that she made to our wedding, except for looking absolutely amazing, of course! We found WS Photography's website and fell in love with Milan's work, his creativity, and his passion. We meet a few times to go over the details and he was always polite and answered every question we had about his work and what he was planning to do. He did site checks to know exactly where he was going, what the scenery looked like, and where he will get the best shots so we can remember our big wedding day. He was there taking amazing pictures that even Michaelangelo or DaVinci would applaud. That's no joke. During your event, you're going to be focused on everything else and it's just going to fly by. Sometimes, we didn't see Milan but after seeing the pictures, we knew he was everywhere. He was everywhere taking all the pictures of us, our guests, our families, and letting us have fun without being in our way. He was climbing over rocks, laying in the snow, do everything he had to, to get that perfect shot. He's simply the best. He's part of our big day and we'll never forget that. Two of my guests do professional photography and they both complimented Milan with such high regards. I highly recommend WS Photography. There are no words that I can really say to you to express how awesome and amazing experience it was. I always thought photography was a button push, but Milan definitely proved me wrong, not that he knew he was proving me wrong.
During my undergraduate year at Dominican University, Eric photographed me for a school project. The project consisted of nude photography. His conduct with me was utmost professional. Eric made me feel comfortable and also asked for my opinion during the session with regards to lighting, positions, and adding props. I would highly recommend Eric's services. He is a great visionary and works well with various groups of people.
Harry has a passion for Photography. He loves what he dies and the pictures come to life with his art. Thank you for being such a wonderful person and helping out the community. People like you make a difference in the world.
Michael was professional and courteous and clearly knew his business. He communicated clearly over the course of our two day event and snapped some unforgettable photos that added life to a relatively reserved conference. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a professional photographer, particularly if they’re hosting a multi-stage event as we did.
I wanted to learn how to use my camera to take better quality pictures. I usually left my camera on the auto setting and hoped that the pictures would turn out good. Joe offers classes on learning photography through the J. Wilder Studios. At first I thought I was not certain about this since it was not a class like setting. We sat on the couch in the front of the studio and went over the basics of the shutter and aperture settings. In addition to teaching me the basics of the camera he took the time to go over any questions that I had regarding photography and how to use the camera. I am looking forward to my next class with Joe and what I will learn.
We were very pleased that she clearly understood what we needed and completed all of our directives for the shoot. Sandra went over and above our needs and wow'ed us and our clients with incredible shots. She is friendly, professional, and her work is high quality!
I've had headshots done in my past with not so great photographers so when I was looking of a new photographer I was feeling kinda worried about who to chose but I am beyond thankful my friend recommended Mike Sansone Photography to me! Such an unforgettable experience. Mike is very good at what he does and makes you feel so comfortable/ confident behind the camera! Needless to say if you need new headshots done I highly recommend Mike!!
Ryan did professional headshots for me and they turned out great!!! I wanted a daylight portrait with a simple background and thats exactly what he gave me. The quality of the digital images were perfect for both print and web. He was very easy going and professional! After a while I barely noticed him shooting. Before I knew it we were done. He quickly reviewed some images me on the spot. Later that same evening I was able to view an online gallery and download images. Very reasonable price for quality!
BirdyFinn exceeded all expectations! I am the creative director for a University magazine. I found BirdyFinn on Thumbtack. I sent him examples of what I wanted and had a brief phone conversation. The photography he sent was spot on.
We organized a yacht party to celebrate our Engagement for a group of 50 people for 3 hours and Geraldine did an outstanding work by capturing all the moments wonderfully. She has amazing photography skills and I would definitely recommend her for any event. My overall experience with her work was very satisfying.
Carrie is awesome. I can tell you that, as a professional photographer myself, I am choosy about who I let do my photos. But, she is fantastic and did a wonderful job for us! I highly recommend her!
