I first met Joe Lee in 2011 when I spent seven days with him as we traveled with the Wreaths Across America convoy from Maine to Arlington National Cemetery. Joe conducted himself with the utmost professionalism at each of our many stops along the way. He captured the special moments on audio, video and in still shots enabling me to recount the entire trip as if I was there in person again. This past July, Joe flew to Minneapolis to volunteer as the photographer and videographer for a two day memorial event held in honor of my son, an Army Ranger KIA in 2009. The morning of the first day, my house was struck by lightning and a fire ensued. Joe lost some of his equipment but quickly replaced it on his own so he could still do what he came to. This was a chaotic situation that others may have become discouraged from, but not Joe! He stayed the course and never faltered from his commitment. Joe Lee is not only very professional, he is a very personable guy whose positive presence will add to any event. Highly recommend!
I am short of words as to how best to describe Tony & Sheila! They were more than wonderful and absolutely a joy to work with.they did both our engagement photos and our entire wedding! they were great professionals but most importantly friendly and welcoming. Sheila was like the mom I didn't have,helping me pick the best matching jewelry set,taking off the veil for the reception,fixing the groom's tie,etc. words can't describe how awesome,timely and professional Tony and Sheila are!! I highly recommend booking them. You'll not regret it! Thank you for making Our day perfect!love Richard & Mary 😃
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.

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!
Cristi was fantastic! Exceeded our expectations and was a professional in every sense of the word. Loved that he was early which gave us a chance to see if our preferred location would work. He pointed out that we would have the sun in our eyes, not good and found another spot close by which was perfect! We were a large family group with lots of strong personalities. He was able to get us to move along and used humor to make our session fun. Very easy to communicate with and quickly answered all of my questions. We were all coming in from different states and he was very nice about working with the tight schedule we had. I would definitely use him again if I needed a professional photographer for ANY occasion. The pictures come out wonderful and everyone was surprised at how he was able to get us to quit talking long enough to have us all looking in the right direction. Thank you Cristi for making this a fun family memory with loads of beautiful pictures as well!
We hired Ms. Monique to do our engagement photos for my fiance and I. From the very beginning she was nothing but helpful. She responded very quickly and was flexible and lenient with her times and schedules. She understood exactly what we wanted and on the day of the shoot that showed. She gave suggestions, she laughed with us, she joked with us and made us feel like we've known her for years. She made sure we had the perfect shots in perfect settings, even though it meant walking in 18 degree weather. She was a professional throughout. We just got our photos back and it only took a week. Everybody we have shown can't believe they came out so perfect but most of all we love them. We have three more shoots with Ms. Monique and then finally we're going to be able to have her shoot our wedding for us. Super excited to see what other moments she can capture.
Mark was a lifesaver for my daughter's first birthday party! I hired him 3 days before my event as my original photographer cancelled on me due to a family emergency. He was super easy to work with and the best part of it all, is how happy I am with all the pictures. Thank you Mark for capturing the precious moments at my daughter's birthday party!
I’m happy to recommend Josh to anyone looking for an engagement photographer in the D.C. area. From our initial conversations on Thumbtack to the final delivery of our photos, Josh was quick to respond to our questions and concerns. He even FaceTimed with us before the shoot to answer our questions. To be honest, my fiancé and I were a bit nervous for the photo shoot (we are more comfortable as “behind the scenes” folks), and within a few minutes, Josh made us feel completely at ease. He made our personalities shine through in our photos, and we are really proud to show our photos to friends and family. Thank you, Josh, for your beautiful photos and impressive service!
Christy is very friendly and flexible. It was very easy to work with her. She made us very comfortable in front of the camera. Which reflected in in a good photo shoot. She very professional with quick turnaround. Our photos came out really good. She suggested some very good poses. I would recommend her to my friends and family for sure. We enjoyed the photo shoot. She is
Oh my God... Where do I begin? Priscilla is hands down the best photographer my husband and I have met. Pri brings so much energy and passion to what she does, that it's contagious. Her customer service from the moment you reach out to when she delivers your images is spot on. She is open to ideas, creativity, and let's you take control of your shoot, if that is what you are into. Dealing with Priscilla is not like dealing with someone you hired to take your pictures, but a friend that just so happens to be taking your pictures. I do not regret a single thing about choosing Pri as our engagement photographer. We are amazed by the results!! We definitely will be recommending her to all our friends and family, and will be using her as our family photographer for years to come. Thanks Pri!
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!
Lizzy captured our wedding beautifully, taking spontaneous pictures that made possible to live that special moment again. She is very sweet, which makes her presence light and enjoyable, professional, and flexible to last minute changes. I am very happy with the results.
Nandy was incredible - very professional, amazing photos, and very easy to work with. I couldn't endorse him more for anyone looking to take surprise engagement photos or any other event photos in and around the DC area!
Vijay is a wonderfully creative photographer. He is the only person besides myself in which I fully trust taking my photo! My maternity photos that included my son and his sister's newborn photo shoot both turned out amazing. I wound up with dozens of photos that I am in love with! I would recommend Vijay to anyone looking for high quality photography. 5 stars! -Elise Lopilato
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.
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.
We had hired Bearshakin for our outdoor engagement photoshoot. Katya was responsive and friendly right from the initial conversation to the day of shoot. Our original plan had to be rescheduled to the next day because of unexpected thunderstorms. Katya was helpful enough to do so, we really appreciate it!. The photoshoot went really well and the Bearashkin team was creative as well as courteous throughout the photoshoot. Katya helped us to relax and just enjoy the overall experience. She clicked several photos and the team edited them and shared the pictures with us the very next day. The photos were absolutely beautiful and everyone loved them. We really enjoyed the experience and would definitely consider rehiring them for any future project!
What an amazing artist! Was very nervous about my and my fiancees first ever photo shoot. Paul was so laid back and so professional . He really made it a comfy atmosphere and just very natural. He really took his time and made sure we had the best session we could. He made my super shy fiancee very comfortable. The pictures were edited and given to us in a very timely fashion. Not only was our engagement photos amazing and the session a huge success but we have also decided that even though we live in NJ he will be our wedding photographer he is worth every sent and with that being said i highly recommend Paul for your photo needs you cant go wrong. Thank you so much Paul
My fiance and I feel SO lucky to have found Rachel to photograph our engagement. She was so much fun to work with and she made us feel so comfortable about being photographed during such an intimate moment. We were so impressed with the quality of the photos; we are so happy and will definitely be using Rachel for more photoshoots in the future. Highly recommend!!
What can I possibly say other than AWESOME! From the very first response to very last email. At the very last minute, the original photographer that I had made an appointment with left me hanging. So I needed to find someone QUICK! But considering a few factors that started happening to include my son being sick and the weather...my husband and I didn't know if we should continue with the family photos. Then I spoke with Ben over the phone after playing thumbtack tag and made arrangements to do the shoot the next day! I was impressed with his website along with his ig account. I could go on and on...but essentially, I'm happy we chose to work with you Ben! I will definitely be in touch for more great memories you help capture!
