We retained Cristi to photograph my birthday party. We were impressed by his professionalism and warm personality and thrilled with his work. He took over 700 creative photos, in both color and black and white, which beautifully display the fun, excitement, intimacy and emotion of the attendees and the event. The composition and lighting were excellent. He took multiple, excellent photos of everyone, and covered the entire event without ever interrupting the flow of the party. When we look at the photos, we laugh and smile as we relive the feelings and emotions of that wonderful event and are so grateful that Cristi was able to capture and memorialize them for us. We will hire him again for our next event! Thank you, Cristi!

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.

Our experience with DJ, Photo Booth Rentals and Amusements was terrific. Nick, the owner was very professional and great to deal with. All pricing was provided upfront. The DJ was awesome and played all of the types of songs our daughter and her friends enjoyed at her Sweet 16 Birthday party. The photo booth was a lot of fun and everyone enjoyed the props for the pictures. They were very prompt and professional. We would definitely recommend DJ, Photo Booth Services and Amusements, and will use them again in the future.

There aren't words to adequately describe how wonderful Jamaal is. Not only is he an incredibly talented photographer, but he is also super sweet and fun to be around. We chose Jamaal for our mother's surprise birthday party after perusing his work on his website -- his photojournalistic approach was exactly what we were looking for and we are legit fans of his work! After meeting Mr.McKenzie, I knew he would be perfect! He was so attentive and listened to the vision we had and what we wanted to capture that night. On the day of the event, Jamaal showed up and it was like he just fit right in with everyone laughing, striking up conversations and making sure that everyone felt comfortable while he was taking photos. And of course...his photos. There are barely words that can do his photos justice. Above all else, we hired Jamaal for his stunning work, and boy am I glad we did! He truly has a gift when it comes to capturing the feel of any event, not just the play by play. Instead of focusing on stuffy portraits and weird cheesy poses (though of course we have some stunning formals), he captured us just enjoying the day, naturally. As a result I have so many beautiful photos of everyone just having a blast. The photo he captured of my mother's face as she walked into a room full of her loved ones, brought tears to my eyes. The joy he was able to capture in that moment is one I will never be able to thank him enough for. Flipping through our photo album makes me feel as though we are back at the party living it up all over again; all of the photos are so genuine, and each is truly something to treasure. We walked away with some unreal photos that we'll cherish for a lifetime. Jamaal snagged some amazing candid shots but was also adept at giving direction during more focused shoots of . If the photos weren't enough, we also walked away with a new friend who we are so looking forward to joining us for more events in the future! Thank you so much for everything-- you're the best!

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.

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!

Gabe is the most phenomenal photographer I have ever had in my life. Let me start by saying I wish Gabe was my wedding photographer. Gabe photographed a birthday party for my daughter. He was so great with communication and wanted to get my perspective before the party so he was able to see my vision. He was around taking pictures without being in the way. Gabe remembered so many people's names and people were happy to smile for the camera because of Gabe's charm. When I walked around, I heard a guest say, "I want to hire him for my next party!" I couldn't imagine any future parties any other way! Gabe, you are amazing and we can't wait to see you for the next party! Thank you for EVERYTHING!

Winstead was so awesome! I booked a trial makeup session with Winstead for my wedding and then booked him for my bridal party. Winstead tailored each application based on style, skin tone and preference and each of my bridesmaids was thrilled with the result as was I! I had so many compliments as did my bridesmaids. I fully recommend Winstead stead Studios!

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

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!

I loved Shoshana! Even I requested a photographer the day before my anniversary party (last minute), she was able to give a quote and she came earlier than expected to the photo shoot location. She is very flexible with dates/times. She was very easy to communicate with and beyond professional the whole session. She made my whole family and friends feel very comfortable. Shoshana has an incredible talent that allows her to truly reflect the personalities of the people in her photographs in a natural way. She has good eye for different shots, she was giving amazing ideas for poses and lighting and location Shoshana is very easy to work with, and very professional! I don't think ever using another photographer will ever be an option.

Mark was absolutely phenomenal as the photographer for my wife's 40th birthday party. He came early, stayed late and captured the story of the event better than I could have imagined. He was great with requests for specific group shots and he not only got us our photographs when promised, but also provided a web preview so we could share with our friends almost immediately afterwards. I asked my wife to choose a photographer based on her impression of their online portfolios alone, and we both selected Mark (she didn't know that he was also the lowest-priced bid we received). He should be charging more. He's well worth it.

Robert Mang was very helpful throughout the planning process for photos of our 50th anniversary party - timing, locations, suggestions. He arrived at our home so we could catch the last light of the day for outdoor family photos and took many different groups and arrays plus some candids. He then followed us to the restaurant and took photos of our guests as they arrived and some candids. We expect to see the finished photos within a week or two, but expect they will be great based on his website photos. Robert's pricing was within the range that we had specified to Thumbtack. Thank you, Robert!

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!

Mr. Jacobs is fabulous!! He has photographed several activities/events for myself. The most recent was my 50th Birthday Celebration. The photos were absolutely breathtaking!! I had many AWWW moments. The quality and the attention to detail - top notch! In addition Mr. Jacobs has the personality and social skills to be professional and mingle with the crowd. My guest LOVED him and asked many questions about his profession. Mr. Jacobs was at ease and provided those small details to ensure that I received a product that I would be proud of and to have as enjoyable memories. Mr. Jacobs has photographed my KICK BALL team and let me tell you!!! The team LOVES him!! The quality of the pictures again were top notch!! Many action pics that the team is able to share with their circle of family and friends. NOTHING like action picss. Mr. Jacobs is the highest rated photographer that is known to me. I am honored and thrilled to know him and can trust and rely on him to provided GREAT Customer Service.

This was, without a doubt, the very best corporate photography experience I've ever had -- and I've been around. :) From the outset of my inquiry on Thumbtack, Dave kept in touch and communicated continuously. His estimate was exactly what I'd hoped. The experience: exceptional and outstanding. This assignment was challenging, having to do 213 professional headshots in 12 hours, as well as shoot candids at our 60th anniversary party. I didn't know how we would do it but David came up with the brilliant idea of having two photographers shooting simultaneously. Not only did it work, but he and his assistant were an utter joy to work with: outgoing, happy, professional, kept a perfect pace, and knew how to put a bunch of introverted engineers at ease. The outcome: beautiful headshots, and fantastic candids. I cannot recommend Dave highly enough. Don't look at anyone else -- he's The Guy!
