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.

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!
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!
Julie did a in-home newborn/family photo session for us and she made it so enjoyable! She is great with guiding you what to do through each photo and she’s not afraid to tell you where to move, or what to look at. Previous photographers weren’t as assertive and made it very difficult for us to know what to do. Our pictures turned out amazing! If you use her you won’t be disappointed!
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!
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.
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.
He came to my house to do some portrait-type photography. I appreciated that Joe was relaxed and friendly and didn't seem rushed. I got the photos back from him very quickly. He was helpful in suggesting good backgrounds as well. I was very pleased with the end result. I think he'd make a great family photographer also.
Ian did a newborn photo shoot for my daughter in June. He came prepared with vignette ideas and appropriate props was able to work in the outfits blankets and toys I brought. He was professional in his direction and gentle in posing my daughter. The photos were fantastic, and my daughter shined beautifully through his work. He was so incredibly easy to work with, I will definitely use him for photos in the future.
I helped my friend find a wedding photographer on Thumbtack, and we were immediately impressed with Ashley’s beautiful work. She was very easy to work with, and she helped their wedding day run smoothly. The bride and groom were very happy with their photos and said that she captured everything they wanted and more. We look forward to working with her again in the future.
Joshua is one of the best photographers I've ever met. From the beginning of my search for a photographer, Joshua's work and professionalism stood out among the others. While I needed headshots, I also wanted something different, something other than the generic canned ones we've all grown accustomed to seeing. I wanted something casual and spontaneous but certainly not a selfie. As soon as I saw Joshua's portfolio, I knew he was the right one for me. This conviction was confirmed even before I met him in person. Joshua was forthright and proactive in laying out the logistics of what to expect in advance of our appointment. The day of the shoot, he arrived ahead of schedule and allowed enough time to talk with me about his style, his work, and listen to what I wanted and expected. Once the camera started rolling, he made me feel comfortable and at ease and gave me step by step directions of where he wanted me, and what he wanted me to do. I didn't feel like I was posing but stood and acted like I normally do. This gives a much more natural, effective, and stand-out photograph, and I am very pleased with the results. Joshua is friendly, personable, highly skilled at his trade, and very conscientious. He's a consummate professional and has very reasonable rates. I highly recommend Joshua and encourage you to take the time to familiarize yourself with his work. Next time you need a photographer, you now know who to call.
Monique Michael was outstanding . I am so happy and impressed with the photos of our wedding she captured every moment I got the package with 2 photographers Greg and her were awesome. Their work was so great and the exceeded our expectations by miles. They are great people also. Both of them by the end of the night were loved by everyone in attendance. they knew when to be visible and when not to the were so kind and helped posing some shots got great candid shots and were extremely creative. they got the work back quickly and were very fairly priced . I am so glad I used this site and will continue to us M&M photography for all events of our lives. If you are looking for great work and great people look No further. THIS IS BETTER THEN GREAT ALL AROUND AWESOME PEOPLE AND INCREDIBLE PHOTOGRAPHERS!!!!!!
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.
Our photographer was amazing! I highly recommend this company - they are super flexible and have good deals. Our photographers for the wedding did an amazing job - they were attentive and responsive as well as accommodating. Sheila was truly amazing from the moment she walked in the door she was all business. Tony took the guys and got them looking good with some awesome shots while Sheila stayed with me and the girls. I would use them for everything in the future as well. They are Highly Recommended by ME and my family. I love this Photography Team
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!
My husband and I were so very fortunate to have Robert as our photographer for our wedding 11/20/16. Robert photographed our ceremony and reception which were held at two different locations, and took time with us to set up outdoor shots to capture the beautiful fall scenery. Robert captured the beauty of our surroundings and wonderful moments between my new husband and I as well as our family and friends. He is very detail oriented and professional, and honestly, just a really fun guy : ) Our full album was ready before the suggested date! Robert even gave us a glance at half of our pictures before they were all developed. This was such a pleasant surprise as we were right in the middle of the very busy holiday season. Thank you Robert for being a part of our wedding day and sharing your talent with us. We now have the best memories in an album!
Tony is a great photographer. He took the time to get an understanding of the kind of photos I needed for my website, asked good questions and provided great guidance. I ended up with beautiful photos (and I'm picky), all within budget. Looking forward to working with him again.
We hired Mark for my Indian engagement party, which included a couple's shoot. We had Mark do the photography and his wife do videography. Mark made sure to keep in touch regularly in the weeks leading up to the event. He would ask us ample of questions and he also researched the Hindu engagement ceremony to be able to better capture the important moments and we really happy with that. On the day of the event, they arrived exactly on time, in fact 30 mins earlier than we expected, giving enough time to set up the cameras, lighting and conduct a photoshoot before the event. Very professional attitude throughout the function. He was very hardworking, and my entire family noticed it. He's one of the only vendors at our event that we felt fully satisfied with. Same goes for his wife, who was taking videos. When the pictures came in, we were in complete love with them. Very high quality and artistic shots. Mark was able to capture the event beautifully and the editing was on point too. I had a bunch of suggestions for editing and Mark was nice enough to incorporate those ideas when editing some important pics, and they came out great. The video was okay too, Mark supplied us with 3 copies of a DVD with the main highlights of the event and also an SD card with basically everything they had captured. We wanted to make sure that the ceremony, speeches, performances, games and free-dancing elements of the night wouldn't go unnoticed and we didn't want to burden any of our close friends or family to take videos for the entire night. That's when we got the idea to hire a team of two photographers and have one of them do the video. Mark's wife is not a professional videographer so some videos were shaky and kept going out of focus but that's because they didn't have a professional video camera which we agreed on to begin with. Overall I have no complaints with this team and I will definitely be hiring Mark and his wife for other family events.
Outstanding is the ONLY way to describe Erik, and his attention to customers and detail. When we planned a 90th birthday party for my aunt, we didn't know what to ask for in the way of photos. Erik took the initiative and posed small groups, larger groups and one huge group. His candids captured the mood and emotions of the party. I highly recommend him for photographing any important event.
I hired Bearashkin for my son's 10th birthday party, and the pictures we got were great. We always try to make these types of special occasions memorable, and the photographer who came in (early enough to set everything up before the guests arrived) captured the perfect moments, from the gift giving and opening to the birthday cake and my son blowing out the candles. The wait for he pictures wasn't long either, only a day or two after the party. Overall, we've had a great experience here and their whole attitude is very courteous and professional. We are definitely thinking of hiring them again for other birthdays.
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.
