Cristi was fantastic! Exceeded our expectations and was a professional in every sense of the word. Loved that he was early which gave us a chance to see if our preferred location would work. He pointed out that we would have the sun in our eyes, not good and found another spot close by which was perfect! We were a large family group with lots of strong personalities. He was able to get us to move along and used humor to make our session fun. Very easy to communicate with and quickly answered all of my questions. We were all coming in from different states and he was very nice about working with the tight schedule we had. I would definitely use him again if I needed a professional photographer for ANY occasion. The pictures come out wonderful and everyone was surprised at how he was able to get us to quit talking long enough to have us all looking in the right direction. Thank you Cristi for making this a fun family memory with loads of beautiful pictures as well!

My experience with Elmo Laing was a powerful trigger of personal memory---from light, to set-up, to processing. By all accounts, he is a meticulous craftsman. Through his eyes and indelible images of my party guests, I am still reliving this momentous occasion ---my 60th birthday celebration. In photograph after photograph, Elmo captured every mood and motion of the affair. He documented the dancing, the band, the striking group portraits, the cake, the room decorum, and of course--ME. His photography has played an important role of constructing memory because the stories leap from their stills. His images are stimulants for remembering---happy lives, families and friends, and what & how we celebrate. I hover over these images! That’s what fantastic photographers do….they show the environment, they show what they saw and they work to compose the best for YOU. That is exactly what Elmo Laing produced for me. Oh, wait a minute, did I mentioned that he is patient, polite, and precise with posing & positioning—a good photographer. Thank you, Elmo for your artistry, storytelling and technical ability.

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.

Outstanding DJ Services! I couldn't have asked for a better DJ for our wedding. He was professional, knowledgeable, and everything was just perfect from start to end. DJs was excellent from start to finish. They were so professional and well organized. Nick was AMAZING. He directed everyone throughout the wedding including during the ceremony. He helped keep everything so organized. The dance floor was FULL during a brunch wedding! The music was such a perfect mix to accommodate everyone's likes and was classy. We also used the lighting package it made a HUGE difference in the room. Nick was so patient, knowledgeable, and helpful and full of great ideas. Thank you so much to Nick and your lovely DJ partner- WIFE! :) Fantastic experience.

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

Winstead communicated with me from the time I booked him to the time he did my makeup. He is very professional and courteous. He arrived early with all his tools and did an excellent job with my face (bridal makeup), and also did makeup for my mom-in-law and sis-in-law. I looked gorgeous in all my wedding photos and my skin looked radiant in the sunshine (it was an outdoor wedding). I asked for lightweight and natural-looking makeup and that's what I got. I'd definitely hire him again! You won't go wrong if you hire Winstead for your makeup needs!

We were SO thankful to find Monumental Arts and K on such short notice - we had our wedding in a museum in Alexandria and our friend, an amateur photographer, fell through just 2 weeks before our February 21st wedding - I was so scared because the wedding photos are SO important to me, I even still have my parents album and their wedding picture at home! He met with us and we discussed our wedding plans, laid out our timeline, and he showed me the most beautiful wedding albums and enlargements from weddings he photographed before - my fiancé even liked them! We decided right then and there Even though we were just having a shorter wedding, nothing all day, we still went with his more expensive collection (I think it was the Sapphire Collection) because we knew we would be getting an album and wanted two photographers. He showed up on the wedding day and walked us through everything we asked for - even suggesting some outdoor pictures I didn't expect to get because the weather turned out beautiful!! Plus, he stayed an extra 30 minutes after things starting running behind, which was so nice of him. We are so thankful for his work and professionalism! We met with him to discuss the photos we want in our album and to order enlargements, and he made it so easy to do everything. I have two other friends getting married this year in Northern Virginia, and we've definitely recommended K and his team to them!

Nik proposed in 3/17 & we didn't want to wait so once we locked in the venue, we began looking for a photographer. Our wedding was considered it an elopement as it was a simple service with 11 in attendance, myself & my groom included, and it was to be roughly 3 hours of shoot time. We wanted to have a natural feel to the photos & be rich in color with no details missed. During the search, I wanted to see portfolios of weddings where the photographer had shot in dimly lit venues. Although we didn't do a traditional reception, we did have all of our guests join us for a dinner where we did a toast & cut cake. We wanted to see work that demonstrated the photographer's ability to photograph without the use of bright lights that create shadows or completely black out the room to get one (or a few) subject(s). Joshua was very accommodating when it came down to deciding between three local artists & I'd asked to view a full wedding since in reality, the online portfolios only showcase their best work. He was incredibly patient with us as we took a few weeks to really nit-pick the photographer's work & make a decision. Everything that we'd asked for he provided. Fast forward to June 10, 2017 - the wedding. Upon arrival, he helped us all get into place & even communicate between the groom & I. He was incredibly patient. Honestly, I barely noticed him once everything got rolling. He got all the shots we wanted & then some! The photos of my husband's expression when I made my way towards him will be cherished forever. Anything in particular we wanted, he did. In the end, he ran a few photos by us to see if they were to our satisfaction. We made a few suggestions regarding saturation & a small blemish that needed editing & when the gallery went up, I couldn't stop looking for days. We happily recommend Joshua Fernandez Photography. The photos selected are two of our favorites from the day <3

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!

We hired Gabe to do photography for our wedding and reception, and we could not have asked for a better experience. He was by far the most cost effective quote that we had gotten, and he was a thorough professional throughout the experience. He understood exactly what we needed from the pictures and followed through and delivered exactly what we needed. He was great with our guests, and they really enjoyed interacting with him (may of them have indicated that they will be reaching out to him for future engagements). He made them feel comfortable, without making them feel awkward, and even got a lot of our guests who are somewhat camera shy to feel at ease. You can tell he enjoys what he is doing and interacting with people to make them smile. The photos themselves turned out great. Overall I would highly recommend Gabe to anyone who is looking for a great photographer who not only delivers great pictures but is fun to be around.

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!

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!

Smashing Entertainment was A-mazing. From start to finish they really handled every detail in such an organized way I couldn't be happier. The Photography was unmatchable, even dealing with other photographers for 16 years, Tyler's thoughts, help, and finished product will have us contacting him from here out. We would completely recommend this company for photography and/or photo booth!!! (Custom strips are awesome and guests loved them)

We hired Tamiraa for family and kids photo session. The photos were taken beautifully and we couldn't be more happier. Tamiraa made us look our best in the photos (I don't know how she did that :-) ) Tamiraa was very professional and punctual and she is the sweetest photographer we've ever met. She was very patient with our kids (3 and 5). We are a big fan of her work and will come back for more. Thank you Tamiraa!

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.

Shoshanna is an amazing photographer. We are definitely going to make her our family photographer. We worked with Sosi several times and every time we felt like we couldn’t have made a better decision. Not only did our pictures turn out beautifully - but she was incredibly easy to work with from beginning to end. She has an amazing and very artistic eye for any kind of photos. All the shots we have are full of color and life and do not resemble your typical staged shots. We loved her work. We highly suggest meeting with Sosi and booking her for any upcoming photo needs you may have - she's worth every penny!

I can't say enough good things about Rachel. She met with me before the wedding and took time to get know us. She has a wonderful creative eye for settings and a knack for capturing the spirit of the event with her candid photography. Our staged group photos worked smoothly. I received my photos quickly within a few weeks of the wedding. Mostly, Rachel is a smart, intuitive, and sweet person. It was a pleasure to work with her.

I hired Jared as my photographer for my wedding and got to have some early on experience with him during my engagement shoot. My wedding is in Virginia next year (2018) which he is coming all the way down for, and finding someone to travel especially so far at such a great price, is amazing. During our engagement shoot, he listened to what me and my fiance had to say about what type of feel we were going and when we didn't know, he was amazing with direction. We had a huge range of photos from various sites we visited as well as an outfit change, and all pictures came out amazing. He went beyond my expectations with capturing the magic of the day. At first I was stressed about getting pictures but his calm and relaxed demeanor made for a very fun shoot. His daughter was also there to help and she was so sweet. I love how family oriented his business is. His turn over time for pictures was faster than I had expected with great results. For the quality and price I'm definitely glad he'll be the one to capture my big day. :)

Candace was the photographer for my wedding and I loved both the photos and her wonderful work style that enabled her to fit seamlessly into an intimate, family event. Because we had a more intimate event, Candace brought a more creative, editorial approach to our photos that successfully told our unique story. I learned that she has a TV producer background and her visual storytelling skills were on full display. Finally, she has the most lovely personality. It was as if a close, trusted friend was capturing the memories from our special day. I give Candace my highest recommendation.

We hired Ms. Monique to do our engagement photos for my fiance and I. From the very beginning she was nothing but helpful. She responded very quickly and was flexible and lenient with her times and schedules. She understood exactly what we wanted and on the day of the shoot that showed. She gave suggestions, she laughed with us, she joked with us and made us feel like we've known her for years. She made sure we had the perfect shots in perfect settings, even though it meant walking in 18 degree weather. She was a professional throughout. We just got our photos back and it only took a week. Everybody we have shown can't believe they came out so perfect but most of all we love them. We have three more shoots with Ms. Monique and then finally we're going to be able to have her shoot our wedding for us. Super excited to see what other moments she can capture.
