Ilya Vaynshteyn of Dynamic Reel Productions responded to my request within minutes. He is a professional with a very calm and pleasant demeanor, arriving early, is organized, and produced a beautiful video of our church service, paying great attention to detail. Highly recommend. Five stars! Many thanks, Ilya. We hope to see you again.

Elmo is super awesome! He was my clutch photographer for my special day. I had been going back and forth with the scale of my big day, and finally decided to just have an intimate ceremony last min. I literally planned this in two weeks. He was the third person I spoke to, he promptly got back with me and was even accommodating with his time. Even though this was last minute, he provided so much more than I was expecting. My pictures and video came out super nice and I appreciated his creativity. He has a wonderful presence and I would be sure to use him for future events. Thank you Elmo ~ The Happy Couple (Mr. & Mrs. Yisrael)

Eric was phenomenal to work with and I cannot recommend him enough. I wanted to hire a videographer to solely film our wedding ceremony, and Eric was by far the best choice in terms of value, quality, and overall first impression. Eric came to the rehearsal the night before our wedding to meet me, figure out his camera angles, and get familiar with the space. He is incredibly professional, kind, and communicative, and made us feel so at ease throughout the entire wedding planning process, too. We had our wedding highlight reel from Eric the DAY AFTER our wedding and were absolutely blown away by its beautiful and emotive quality. We can't wait to receive our full ceremony footage in just a few weeks, and 100% would recommend Eric to anyone looking for an affordable and fabulous videographer for any occasion.

We just wrapped a Glow party for our 10yo and Party Favor Photo was an absolute hit at the party! The kids LOVED the booth and the on site photo prints, plus all the digital adds, including free downloads of all the photos in and out of the template, is an amazing bonus. From start to finish they were completely professional and amazing. They designed a beautiful custom template pre-party to match the theme, and the prints are amazing!!!! Our attendant arrived on time and was really patient and nice, despite a constant influx of young kids. She was also was very helpful in ensuring that all heights were captured:-) When our photo booth rental time was almost done, our attendant was amazing and made sure she grabbed our daughter to take photos with as many people as possible for the last 15 mins! She was paying attention and noticed she had not gotten a lot of shots with her. This meant that we ended up with a ton of photos of our daughter and her friends, which we otherwise would not have gotten. I will definitely use them for the next event I have that uses a photo booth. I highly recommend that you use this company for your photo booth rental.

Gabriel “Gabe” Martinez (The Marvelous Real Photography) works very hard for his shots. The lengths he goes to for his pictures, he not only wants them to be the best, but wants to meet his clients’ expectations. Both me and my guests was very impressed with him. After seeing Gabe's photo gallery and discussing my 50th birthday celebration vision with him, I immediately knew he was the one! As requested, he integrated videography to capture the music performances to retain with my event memoirs. I booked Gabe without seeing another photographer and it was the BEST decision! On my big day, Gabe arrived early, set up, and after a quick run through of the event flow with me, I was completely at ease knowing that Gabe would capture shots in a journalistic photography style that I will cherish for years to come. His professionalism, creativity, cheerfulness, and fun-loving interaction with me and my guests created a great atmosphere and experience for everyone. He knows how to make you feel comfortable event while the camera may be surprisingly aimed directly in your face — He makes taking photos fun! During the event, I sneaked a peek at the photo display. Gabe caught me peeking and showed me a few of the shots. The pictures were stunning! With his creative eye, he captured the timeline of my event while shooting photos in the most unique places. I highly recommend hiring Gabriel “Gabe” Martinez (The Marvelous Real Photography) for any engagement. Gabe exceeded my expectations and I will contact him again for future events.

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

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!!!

Shoutout to Xavier the cameraman. At the shoot today he said, "Oby, my job is to use the right lighting, and perfect camera angles to make you look good." Now,that's a reporter's dream, to have a cameraman who knows their craft. Like Xavier said, borrowing a line from Casablanca,"This is the beginning of a beautiful friendship." #nigeriaelectios2015 #WhiteHouse #APC #PDP #PSNnews

I would highly recommend Mr. Jones and his services for anyone interested in quality products.

It took less than thirty minutes for Doug to respond to my Thumbtack photo job ad. He was straightforward in his responses to my queries about previous job shoots on the Hill. Confirming his availability to do the job was flawless. A few clicks and done with complete information on the number of work hours and price. On the day of the shoot, he arrived 30 minutes early, surveyed the room and already was in position even before the event started. He reconfirmed my photo requirements to make sure he took shots according to my requirements. When the job was done, he packed up and informed me on a 24 hour turnaround of photos. Within an hour, I received the receipt for the job via email. Within six hours, he sent me four of his favorite shots in case I needed to upload photos on our company website. The whole experience was smooth with no stress involved. The best part of the wonderful experience was the photos. They were fabulous photos capturing the moments perfectly. What can I say? Doug is not only a business professional but also a master photographer. I'm definitely working with him again.

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!

I've worked with Metro for over 20 years on video rentals, staffing and streaming projects. Dave Lilling consistently supplies the right talent for the price. I've produced highly successful live shows with Dave's help on staffing and equipment rental. Metro has been a regular supplier of top-flight talent needed to supplement staff on large projects. Dave has matched us up with great shooters, for live and EFP projects as well as outstanding field and studio audio engineers. Dave is always on budget and offers options to help get the best video production for the available dollars. Highly recommend you speak to Dave when considering ENG, EFP, live and streaming services.

Jason could not have been more accommodating and professional. I had him film a presentation I gave and he showed up with patience and flexibility of the space, sound, audience, etc. I was impressed that he showed up dressed so sharply with a tie and hat. I didn't expect this and was proud to have such a professional videographer who really valued the venue and overall experience. The people who invited me to speak could see the level of quality in choosing a good person to film the event. The quality of the final product was fantastic and he even made a few edits after I viewed it to add in the slide images in addition to me in front of camera. All communication was thorough and made me feel that he definitely understood my vision. I will be using him again in the future.

Kayode is the consummate professional an responded within minutes to my online request. He is seasoned and experienced, arrived early with all the top of the line equipment and went to work. He was extremely responsive and came running with his camera when I signaled to him to get a particular shot and I can't wait to see the edited CD included in his fee!

I spent a lot of time looking for the perfect photographer. Someone who can take beautiful, natural pictures without costing a fortune. When I stumbled upon Miguel at a bridal show, all my prayers were answered. Miguel was the best photographer I could've ever asked for. My rehearsal and wedding pictures are stunning without even being edited or photoshopped. His angles and lighting are spectacular and he was able to capture so much even though he was my only photographer with 300+ guests. I had my ceremony followed by a cocktail hour and then reception. Miguel was there from 1pm to 12am with a smile on his face the entire time. He was pleasant to work with and extremely hard working. It was important for him to capture my wedding completely, not to watch his clock to make sure I am not going past my time. I definitely recommend him for all your events, wedding or otherwise.

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!!

Mr. Harris has provided excellent support for three companies with which I've been involved. The work covered video production, crafting marketing materials and messaging and photography. He consistently brings more out of the raw material than I expect is possible. On one memorable project, it took him only 8 hours to wring a coherent marketing message out of partners who had been unable to do so themselves, after weeks of trying. He did all the facilitation, setup, and shooting. A day later he delivered a polished video product we were able to take around to investors. His work was invaluable to our closing a multimillion dollar financing round. If you need excellent photographic/video/marketing/messaging results delivered on time, definitely use Mr. Harris.

Lauren was a fantastic photographer for my wedding. She was able to capture the evening perfectly, even in low-light settings. She brought a second photographer along who was also extremely professional and kind. Lauren helped me through the process of planning the photos, and even helped corral my family the day of the wedding to get the photos done. She was extremely kind and professional, which is important when you're being photographed dressing in your wedding gown! I highly recommend her.

Diana is a great photographer. Not only does she have a great eye for photos, but she is also very professional. Our photo shoot to take headshots for my government job was very enjoyable. Her humor and jokes kept me smiling, which showed through the pictures. Additionally, she was very prepared with a backdrop and other goodies to make sure I looked great (she even minimized my hair frizz!). Her editing work was also impressive, and I received a ton of compliments on my new portraits. I also love the pictures that she has taken of children and landscapes: they truly capture life. I will definitely book Diana again in the future for personal and family pictures.
