I found Joe Halpin's photography webpage, liked what i saw there so called him to see about getting some pro photos for my music business. He was friendly and customer-oriented from the start, asking questions to help me figure out what exactly i was looking for. I went to his home studio, the session was easy and fun - and i LOVE my photos!

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.

This was a truly AWESOME photo shoot. Tina is so energized and enthusiastic about her work as a professional photography it electrifies her studio. Her positive energy and love of her work / professional is intoxicating. Of the many photo shoots I have been in during my life and career, this was the MOST fun, pleasant and enjoyable. Tina gets 5 Stars + from this client! (Photos later, I promise.)

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.

Winstead did hair and makeup for my daughter before her photoshoot. He was prepared when we arrived and skillfully enhanced her natural beauty with his professional products. He made the atmosphere easygoing with background music and offered refreshments to my family as we waited. He also provides photography services so I hired him again and look forward to receiving the whole package: hair, makeup and photos.Thank you Winstead for being flexible with my changing schedule and allowing my daughter to experience hair and makeup like a classy model :)

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

Definitely recommend him. Reasonable price and is comfortable to work with Bill knopf. His skills and long term expertise in photography, his good eye and background in social psychology helped him to catch and document the most emotional moments of our event and bring it to life. His preperation, organization, and timely manners created a trust worthy experience that leaves no regret in choosing him over and over for our events in the future.

We hired Eric Justice as our wedding photographer after a phone conversation with him wherein he was very easy to talk to and kind. Hiring Eric was the best decision we made! He was extremely professional throughout the entire process. He came to the wedding rehearsal to observe the plans, and arrived early on the day of the wedding to capture every special moment of the day! He was very creative, and his demeanor made everyone feel comfortable. His creativity contributed to the most impeccable wedding video I've ever seen. He went above and beyond to create a treasure that my family will cherish forever. He even corrected the moment in the video when the DJ 0played the wrong song for our first dance - Eric overlaid the correct song, so that our video will always reflect the song we intended to dance to. In addition to the phenomenal job that Eric did as a videographer, he is competitively priced. I truly believe he is the best out there, and he is completely affordable. I would strongly urge anyone looking for videography services to hire Eric...you will not regret it! -Angela (an overjoyed customer)

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.

Worked with Doug Sanford to photograph actor head shots for my two children. We found him to be the consummate professional. On time. Responsive. And asked several questions to gauge exactly what we were looking for. It was clear from the beginning that he loves his craft. His amazing Silver Spring, MD studio was easy to find with parking conveniently located right behind the building. The studio, itself, was the perfect backdrop for creating something great. I enjoyed watching Doug work as much as I liked the final product. Photography is like creating art for him! He has an amazing ability to capture the soul of a person. Highly recommend!

Peter Fountain took excellent quality photos for my small business. He was very efficient and I was able to receive the photos next day. My employer is based overseas, and Mr.Fountain was very patient waiting for all the information he needed to have. He went above and beyond with his work as well, taking detailed photos and experimenting with the product in a few ways without charging any extra. I would absolutely have him take more photos for us in the future. Thanks Peter!

Jamaal was one of the best investments of our event. After quite a few photographer meetings, we instantly knew he was different. He's personable, honest, direct, and has such a distinct and gorgeous photography style. He was easy to work with and responsive leading up to my event. On the day of, Jamaal was punctual and worked his tail off! One of the biggest comments from our guests was how great Jamaal was and how dedicated to getting the perfect shots he was. He also ensured that we got all the shots in but were fully present and enjoying the event. Once we took our group shots, we barely noticed he was there the rest of the night. Our photos are so special and we have one of kind shots to remember our perfect day for a lifetime and we have Jamaal to thank! I highly recommend his services to everyone! You won't regret it!
