I asked Cristi to cover an event I was hosting for my 30th Birthday and the pictures turned out great!! So many to choose from. Not only was he a great photographer, but he was on time and even gave helpful set up suggestions. I will definitely book him again and recommend him to all.

Joe's work was excellent, and he was a complete professional. Immediately upon meeting him, he instilled a sense of confidence, trust, and ease -- all of which proved to be accurate. I recommend him without reservation to anyone looking for a photographer who has exceptional artistic as well as "people" skills. Additionally, communication remained clear and frequent throughout the process, and he delivered the final product quickly.

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.

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.

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!

DJ, Photo Booth, Rentals and Amusements, LLC was excellent. The entire process was easy. The DJ, Jessie arrived on time, which was extremely important since the set up time was short. Jessie was extremely professional and flexible. I will definitely use them again for my next event. Shelia Booker Knot Just Weddings, LLC

One of the best Photographers the DMV has to offer! We actually came across Jamaal while he was covering my Soror's Wedding in Baltimore this past year! We had been looking for a photographer for the longest time and we were farmiliar with is work, but watching him while he worked is what sealed the deal for us. He floated around the room effortlessly leaving so many smiling faces in his wake, including ours. We didn't even need to see the final photographs, we were already sold(The Photographs were pretty darn awesome too!). We immediately reached out to Jamaal to schedule our engagement shoot and he didn't disappoint! My partner and I were brought to tears by the images. His turnaround is unmatched! (1-2 days). If you're on the fence about booking Jamaal, consider this the push that gets you over the fence. Book him. Now! You will not regret it, we didn't! Not one bit!

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.

Winstead Barnes is amazing and I HIGHLY recommend him / his company! We hired him to do on-site hair styling (updos) for my daughter's Sweet 16 party, and ended up also hiring him for our event photography needs as well! He was extremely kind, professional, flexible, handled our needs with immaculate precision, and his hairstyling exceeded our expectations by much! We simply showed him the hairstyles we wanted and he was able to make our hair look gorgeous! Thank you for EVERYTHING, Winstead! We will stay in touch and contact you for our future needs as well!

THIS IS THE PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE DECADE! I come from a huge family and I have been to a lot of weddings and also worked with a lot of photographers in the past. Gabe by far has been the absolute best of the best! He was prompt, he was professional, and he was witty and charismatic all at the same time. Even when photos weren't being taken, he had us all smiling ear to ear. By the end of the night I had a few family members asking for his business card! Loved loved loved him!

Party Favor Photo was the perfect fit for our event, and so easy to work with. The green screen was a winner - fit our backdrop to our Western theme so perfectly, and people loved that they could choose the background! PFP was very accommodating, and responded to every question with extreme promptness. Set up and breakdown was quick and easy, and they even gave us an extra half hour of time at the end of the night. Our photographer was friendly and flexible, and the photos were beautiful and printed immediately. Definitely would recommend!

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!

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.

This was my first experience with hiring a photographer. Nandy did an excellent job with our proposal photo shoot. He scouted the area beforehand, capture the moment of when I proposed to my now fiancé, both with pictures and a video, then had a great photo sessions afterwards. I appreciate his thoroughness bc I'm very detailed and likes to plan everything out. It was also great when things doesn't go as plan the very last minute, he would just improvise and made the right adjustment without stepping a beat. His price are excellent and he will work with any occasion that you might want to capture:)

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.

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!

Smashing Entertainment was A-mazing. From start to finish they really handled every detail in such an organized way I couldn't be happier. The Photography was unmatchable, even dealing with other photographers for 16 years, Tyler's thoughts, help, and finished product will have us contacting him from here out. We would completely recommend this company for photography and/or photo booth!!! (Custom strips are awesome and guests loved them)

Mark showed up early, was super professional, and took amazing event photos. He did a great job interacting with the guests to get good reactions out of them for facial expressions for the pictures. He turned the pictures around a quick amount of time and was great to work with! We went ahead and hired him for our next event because we were so impressed.

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!
