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.

I contacted Julie for some professional heads hots for my work profile. Her response was instant. The whole process was hassle free. On the day of actual photo-shoot, I expressed my inhibitions about how not so comfortable I am in front of a photographer. She not only lightened up the whole session but went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. After the photo-session, she was spot on with her timing and sent me all the edits. For all my future photo-shoots, she is my go to person. She is top notch as far as taking head shots is concerned and at the same time she is interpersonal. I would gladly recommend to all my friends and family with similar needs. Thanks again Julie.
Mr. Herbert is one of the most professional photographers I have come across. I first noted his work when he did a session for my friend's Yoga practice. He captures the essence of the event and brings to life the individual in his work. He takes time to get to know the people he will be working with, which shows in his work, as he finds ways to bring the photos to life. I highly recommend him for all photography needs.
I recently worked with Doug as my photographer for professional headshots. Doug is a gifted photographer as well as an extremely professional, smart and delightful person to work with. In addition to providing me with excellent directions, Doug quickly adapted the background, scenery and lighting to accommodate my particular vision. The photographs turned out beautifully, in large part due to Doug's unique perspective. I would highly recommend Doug, and have in fact recommended him to several friends.
I have had Joe help with a few headshot and corporate shoots for my company. I was blown away by his professionalism and his calm demeanor. We were so impressed by the quality of the photos that we put him on retainer for our company. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer
Very professional, great photos. Needed a professional headshot, accommodated me for shooting the next day. Very responsive to emails, received images within 24 hours, edited. Worked with my employers for payment, which was an added bonus. Highly recommended
Chris was a pleasure to work with from the very first contact that we had with him. I was looking for a professional headshot for an executive within our large organization. His work was exceptional, quick and of high quality. Would highly recommend his services if you are looking to work with a true professional. We will be coming back!
Vijay is amazing! He went above and beyond for our pre-wedding photo-shoot. He got to the venue way before our scheduled shoot just so he could walk around the venue and spot the ideal places for our shoot. He had great ideas for the shoot and made us feel comfortable almost instantly. I'd definitely recommend Vijay to anyone looking for a photo-shoot in/around DMV area.
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
A five-star rating doesn't do justice to the quality of Tina's work. I wish I could give 10 stars! If you need a photographer, stop looking -- Tina is the photographer for you! She made the headshot session so easy and enjoyable, which for me is a first experience because I'd never been comfortable in front of the camera. I showed up to the shoot feeling thoroughly unprepared and was sure the whole thing would be a disaster. But Tina assured me every step of the way in an effortless manner, as her enthusiasm flowed so naturally out of her love of what she does. And the result? Nothing short of amazing. I have never been more pleased with my photos (not even my wedding/engagement photos!), and these were taken on a day that I felt frazzled head to toe, inside out. Tina also was very quick in producing the photos and touching up the ones I selected. I literally was blown away by Tina's professionalism and skills. Give her a try, and you'll never want to use another photographer!
Winstead is an outstanding photographer! This was my very first photo shoot and he prepared me for it exceptionally! He recommended the type of attire I should bring, he recommended how to pose, which stances to make and when! In the end, the pictures looked prolific! Crazy part is, you get so much outstanding service and his price is the most competitive out of all the other thumbtack photographers recommended to me! Save yourself the hassle and stress--hire Winstead and you'll be glad you took this recommendation! Be blessed!
Kris was very patient with me, even when I had questions at all hours of the day or evening/night. I am not a fan of having my picture taken despite being better looking than most people. My professional headshot came out exactly the way I wanted it for my public image in regards to my career and standing for social media use. I highly recommend Monumental Arts. Kris is a veteran, as am I, and I prefer to work with and trust that kind of relationship. I appreciated the direction and honesty I received during our shoot. Thank you Monumental Arts.
I have worked with B2 Photo for over 5 years now and have never been disappointed. They are so professional and covered all of my needs, from headshots to real estate and everything in between. My headshot sessions have been fun and easy, and the results are perfect. I always have updated, professional headshots to use on my LinkedIn, resume and business cards. B2 also provided stunning HDR images and drone footage when I was selling my home. The buyers told me it was the beautiful pictures that convinced them to come to our open house! I’d recommend B2 photo for anyone seeking quality images and first class professionalism.
I was first interested in Erik's cityscapes, but was blown away by his work in portrait photography. Its hard to find photographers who are able to capture both genres so intensely with such rich quality. Erik also has the ability to capture what his clients want without losing his artistic twist on his work. I would definitely recommend him professionally as well as personally.
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.
James was great! We wanted to take "Fake Wedding Photos" because our wedding photographer managed to not take any photos of me and my husband. We wanted Cherry Blossom photos, but not in DC. There was a place I REALLY wanted, but did not suggest it when looking for a photographer. Jim suggested the place I wanted, I had seen and liked his work previously, and his rate was much better than I expected. I am also a photographer, and was shocked how quick and professional he was. And he got GREAT photos of My husband, daughter.
Awesome experience with Brian -- he has my highest recommendation if you're looking for a relaxed professional who delivers wonderful results. We had never done a photo shoot before, but he made it so easy and enjoyable for my family. From being immediately responsive to my Thumbtack query, suggesting a place for the shoot, and just being easy and FUN to work with, we had a great experience. I especially liked that he came to the shoot with tons of examples, since we didn't have time before the session to research what kinds of poses we wanted. Both Brian and Katie, his assistant, were so accommodating and patient with our dog, too. Turn around time was outstanding -- same night! Loved that he gave us a ton of photos. We definitely plan on using him again when our extended family visits this summer.
To start with, He is really great. Hands down, great! I am an awkward person but I immediately felt comfortable and confident to have a fun shoot with him in Georgetown. I needed fun and flirty headshots photos for my blog so nothing too serious but he was eager and helpful to tackle the task. He is professional and courteous and his turn around time is quick (seriously its amazing)! I was looking for several photographers but they would all tell me that I get 5-6 photos for double the price. I will always recommend him! Thanks for everything, Robert and I look forward to working with you again!
The good: Very punctual, friendly and good with kids The ouch: The part I hoped for (realized its absence only after seeing the photographs) was suggestions for great shots. Some of the pictures could have been 5-star images (currently I'd put them at 3) had he taken the liberty to suggest some setting changes or paid better attention to backgrounds (or suggest changes) and/or dressing. I put this as an ouch (as opposed to a negative remark) because he probably assumed we know exactly how we want the pictures. Some of the photographers I worked with previously told me about those changes and the results were pretty good. Bottom line: If you know exactly what you want, are the kind to take care of the settings or communicate your needs/expectations precisely (which I did not I guess), and need someone good/fast with the lens (to capture great moments) and someone who is patient with you and the kids, go for Paul. We had engaged him for a kids' birthday party (which in itself is hard thing to cover) and he did a good job, at a short notice.
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.
My photo session with Daniel Paiz was exceptional, he is exactly what I was looking for in a photographer. He took the best photos. He truly knows what he doing and how to capture the moment. I really appreciate his work and talent and cannot wait to work with him in the future. If you are looking for a photographer, choose him!
