My resident holiday party was an absolute success! The residents really enjoyed their keepsake photo's of their family and friends. It was an Ugly Sweater themed party which made it even more memorable! Josh was our Photo Booth Operator and he was super professional and very accommodating to all of our guests. He showed up on time and was incredibly engaging with every guest! Thank you so much and we will for sure reach out to use Party Favor Photo again and again and again!

I’m terribly awkward in front of the camera. Elmo helped me relax and be myself. He worked with me to capture the quality I was looking for in my photo.

I needed headshots for a column I write for a national magazine, Hemmings Classic Car, and they had specific requirements for shadows and how to look away from the camera, lighting, etc. D.I.M. Productions (Karmn) was able to accommodate me on a very short deadline. Karmn was an absolute pleasure and extremely professional. I highly recommend D.I.M. Productions.

Mr. Jones' artistry and work the camera is unparalleled. I received a lot of really great pictures a lot of really great candid's that you really must have an eye for. He produced a stunning collection of pictures for my 30th birthday party. My friends and I rave about how he captured the absolute blast we had as well as great posed pictures of myself and my loved ones. I would highly recommend Mr. Jones and his services for anyone interested in quality products.

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!

Malcholm and his work were both phenomenal. I hired him to do some filming in DC schools for my dissertation research, and he was flexible, professional, responsive, patient, and hard-working from day one. He truly listened to what I needed and wanted out of my films, and he did everything he could to make my vision happen. He showed up early on both filming days, and was great at doing what he needed to do, all while respecting and protecting the work that my teachers and students were doing. He edited my films (over 16 hours of footage across multiple microphones and cameras, down to 15-minute beautiful videos!) much quicker than he had estimated, and well before I needed them. I was the WORST type of client because 1) I have none of the expertise that Malcholm has, and yet 2) I had very specific ideas of what I needed/wanted, for the purposes of my research. Malcholm was patient and kind with me from start to finish, and he even made this whole filming/editing process fun! I cannot say enough good things about Malcholm and his company, you won't be sorry should you choose to work with him!

Eric was an amazing find. I was on the fence about getting a videographer mainly because of the high cost. Eric was a third of the price of most other videographers I contacted and provided more service than any of their golden packages. He was phenomenal! I can't say enough about how great he was to work with. He made us feel at ease in front of the camera, he gave great direction and I just saw my highlight reel (only a couple of days after the wedding!) and it is the more beautiful than I could ever imagine. His talent is out of this world! People have asked me if he travels to do videography, that is just how good he is. You will not go wrong by hiring Eric as your videographer. One of the best decisions I ever made!! Thanks Eric!

Franklin Sayers is an incredibly talented film maker. Not only is he a videographer, he is a world class producer. When Franklin was filming my project for my website, he asked me what I was going to talk about. After listening and talking in into his heart, he said Ok - wait a minute, "I will return". He walked around the property and came back and said, This is where we are going to do the filming". He is very creative. He doesn't just get behind a camera and shoot, He has vision, passion and talent when he is filming. The result is a world class film. He puts his heart and soul into the entire project. He included me and asked for my feedback and we worked together as a team. I was nervous the first time I was about to be filmed. He is so relaxed and kind, he put me at ease after the first couple takes. He kept encouraging me, which enabled me to relax and be myself. Franklin is awesome and I am blessed that God sent him to me. There is no question about it, God sent him to me. I didn't even want to update my website, I didn't want to have a video done of me. when Franklin approached me, I listened to him and was open. I didn't shut the door and I am thrilled and thankful that Franklin became part of my team at Bayley & Bender making my website a show piece. I highly recommend Franklin Sayers - he is beyond Outstanding. He is the BEST of the BEST. God gave him a very special talent and he is using this talent to help you and make you shine!!! He created and produced a sensational film for me. And to top it off---- he is nice and great to work with!!! It doesn't get any better than that. He is doing God's work!!!

My wife and I were so fortunate to have found Adam during our search for a wedding videographer. It is easy to assume that the big companies would be the best, but Adam produced not one but two fantastic videos of our wedding, capturing the complete experience while remaining unobtrusive. Have no fear booking independent! He was able to coordinate seamlessly with our photographers and other vendors to ensure everyone got the shots they wanted. Through the entire process Adam was responsive and knowledgeable. It was an absolute pleasure working with Adam and would recommend his services to any engaged couple. P.S. He hooked me up to a wireless mic for the ceremony which captured the dialog beautifully. Most wedding videos I've seen have echo-y sound and people shuffling around since the microphone is on the camera in the back.

I wanted to have pictures taken at my birthday party for memory. On here, I found a very professional and proactive photographer who did his job at 100%. I am by no means a model and don't know how to pose in front of the camera, so he did all staging for us too!!! At the end when I saw all of the pics (over 200), I was so excited about the high quality and overall. Some of the couples at my birthday party started asking for his phone number. I am definitely happy with services provided and will use again when need arises. Thank you!

Phenomenal! Working with Marty is such a pleasure. Tell him what you want, and he delivers. If you're camera-shy, Marty knows how to put you at ease that you would think you're a professional. The AMI Team and I have worked with Marty for four years. He's a consummate professional with a creative mind and process.

I called around for a few quotes and everyone was kind of sales pitchy.. I just wanted some flyers done for my business. Ryan was recommended to me by my brother who worked with him at best buy. I asked him for advice and he went above and beyond. He recommended a camera for me so I wouldn't have to keep taking pictures with my phone and then he designer some flyers that I loved. All in all I had a great experience and would recommend his services to anyone. Although when the work was completed I had an issue with the format becuase I didn't have Photoshop but he quickly sent me jpg and PDF versions so I could just print and go.

Working with Faithful Dog Digital was an awesome experience! Jeff and his team are so professional. We had a few challenges arise on our shoot date with our on-camera subjects and his team knew exactly what to do to help them. I can't recommend them enough!

Miguel took the photos for our son's 5th birthday party and we can't thank him enough for the great work he did. He arrived super early to make sure of the party setup and was very enthusiastic in getting people smile at his camera. Now we have beautiful memories captured that we can enjoy for years to come and a photographer we can count on for future photo shoots or family events.

Nathanael, as the drone operator, was professional, experienced, and friendly. He took panoramic pictures of our 170 acre farm, sent preliminary results within 24 hours, and responded in a timely manner to all our questions prior to and after the event. I would rehire Nathanael in the future. He knows the business.

We hired Pretty Elektrik to film our entire wedding ceremony, with about 10 days notice. They far exceeded our expectations, particularly where they did the job at a very reasonable price. Everyone was professional and friendly. They showed up early. They delivered the video within a few days. They prepared beforehand to make sure they could capture everything we wanted (because one part of our ceremony involved people standing up, they even set up a second stationary camera and then went upstairs for a better view of our guests in that moment). The quality of the final video is quite high. They truly went above and beyond and we're thrilled we hired them!!

I've always wanted to go see the sunflower field at McKee-Beshers wildlife in Poolesville, Maryland. I contacted A play of light the day of to see if he was available to shoot some photos of me. He was very responsive and was able to schedule me in the same day. When we met at the sunflower fields he was on time and made you feel comfortable. I'm already awkward in front of the camera and when he was taking photos of me I didn't think the pictures were going to turn out nice because it was extremely hot and humid. He managed to take some beautiful photos and they are my favorite photos I've ever been in. Working with Tommy was fun and he kept it really professional. You can tell he loves what he does. I also asked him to record one of my girlfriends bridal shower which turned out really awesome! So if you need someone to take photos and videos I would highly recommend a play of light.
