Fantastic! We didn't end up with the owner doing the photography but we got to work with Alex. He was so awesome!! We got over 800 photos that were edited on top of all the raw footage. All provided on flash drives. We also received a Christmas present too each which was really sweet of him. We built a great friendship and will defiantly use this company in the future. My only feedback to give would be to make sure photos are cropped a little bit better with cutting out the behind the scenes workers for the wedding. Also a little bit more of organization when it came to taking charge of who was taking pictures with who. Also making sure a timeline for family photos was put scheduled in before the reception. Everything went by so quickly so we were doing photos throughout the reception. But overall all of the photos we LOVE!!! Alex was incredible to work with!

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.

Thanks to DIM Productions for an amazing experience! Karmin is THE photographer that you want for familial events, sporting events, weddings, and et-cetera. I've hired Karmin a number of times and have never doubted that it was among the best decisions I've ever made. Karmin has impeccable timing, vision and experience to distinguish a great shot from a good one! She's personable, engaging, down-to-earth and just has a way with people that enthralls and disarms them. She's got an uncompromising standard at events and in her private studio. I cannot commend Karmin highly enough! -Al Johnson

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

Absolutely amazing DJ and the ultimate professional! We booked DJ Sarg for our wedding reception and he did an incredible job! Nick met with us a couple of times prior to our wedding to help us organize our playlists and set up our schedule, which really helped the night run smoothly. The lighting package was also amazing and Nick handed out sunglasses to our groomsmen and glowsticks during the reception that were a lot of fun! All of our family and friends have told us how much fun they had and we owe that to Nick, who really set the tone for the night and even stayed longer than we booked to keep the party going! Everyone we spoke with since the wedding has said "the DJ was awesome!" We are forever grateful to Nick for making our night so special and would hire him all over again in a heartbeat! We highly recommend him and promise that you will not be disappointed!

Winstead communicated with me from the time I booked him to the time he did my makeup. He is very professional and courteous. He arrived early with all his tools and did an excellent job with my face (bridal makeup), and also did makeup for my mom-in-law and sis-in-law. I looked gorgeous in all my wedding photos and my skin looked radiant in the sunshine (it was an outdoor wedding). I asked for lightweight and natural-looking makeup and that's what I got. I'd definitely hire him again! You won't go wrong if you hire Winstead for your makeup needs!

A wonderful experience! K. Michael was a pleasure to work with on our wedding day. Reliable & professional, we received confirmation text messages in the days leading up to the event. His calm, friendly demeanor put us at ease. He asked what shots we wanted & made excellent recommendations for poses and backgrounds. We really appreciated how much candid coverage he got of the ceremony while still remaining unobtrusive. Basically everything you want your wedding photographer to be! We highly recommend Monumental Arts.

We hired Gabe to do photography for our wedding and reception, and we could not have asked for a better experience. He was by far the most cost effective quote that we had gotten, and he was a thorough professional throughout the experience. He understood exactly what we needed from the pictures and followed through and delivered exactly what we needed. He was great with our guests, and they really enjoyed interacting with him (may of them have indicated that they will be reaching out to him for future engagements). He made them feel comfortable, without making them feel awkward, and even got a lot of our guests who are somewhat camera shy to feel at ease. You can tell he enjoys what he is doing and interacting with people to make them smile. The photos themselves turned out great. Overall I would highly recommend Gabe to anyone who is looking for a great photographer who not only delivers great pictures but is fun to be around.

I'm so glad we decided to hire Party Favor Photo. Looking around, many places wanted to charge thousands of dollars and either the photo quality was not good at all or they'd only let you have a certain number of prints. But Party Favor Photo was like the photobooth holy grail - they had incredibly reasonable rates, GREAT photo quality, unlimited prints and hashtag printing! The guest experience was awesome too: we had guests all day coming up to us telling us how fun the photobooth was. Even the older members of our families got in on the photo action! The attendant was really nice and personable and the props were fun and silly. Overall, an awesome hire. I don't think I'll have another wedding ;) but I will definitely be recommending them for any future events!

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

I loved Shoshana! Even I requested a photographer the day before my anniversary party (last minute), she was able to give a quote and she came earlier than expected to the photo shoot location. She is very flexible with dates/times. She was very easy to communicate with and beyond professional the whole session. She made my whole family and friends feel very comfortable. Shoshana has an incredible talent that allows her to truly reflect the personalities of the people in her photographs in a natural way. She has good eye for different shots, she was giving amazing ideas for poses and lighting and location Shoshana is very easy to work with, and very professional! I don't think ever using another photographer will ever be an option.

There really isn't enough time, or just the right words to describe the unbelievable experience we had working with Jamaal McKenzie. So, if you want the Reader's Digest version of this review, here it is: stop everything that you are doing, call him immediately and do whatever you can to book him. But seriously. From the start, Jamaal was constantly and unwaveringly professional, responsive, and helpful. He responded almost immediately to any email or question I had. He made himself available to talk via phone or skype, which was especially important to us because we were planning our wedding from afar. And he provided us with detailed information about the entire process right up front. Beyond all of those things, however, Jamaal demonstrated a real genuine earnestness to do good work for us. Right away, it was clear to me that Jamaal was an artist who truly cares about his work, rather than just someone who photographs weddings to make money. This was really demonstrated by his approach to shooting weddings: he attended our rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, pre-wedding getting ready, the ceremony, and almost the entire reception all for a price that I found to be extremely reasonable. Working with Jamaal the day before and the day of the wedding was also a wonderful experience. He was unobtrusive, but also checked in with me and my husband when appropriate. He was extremely organized and prepared for many different shots and scenarios. And was entirely a calming energy that helped me relax and not worry if the pictures would turn out great. Needless to say, the final products are simply stunning. He captured every single image that we requested, and used his artistry to create images that we couldn't have imagined ourselves, but that will hang on our walls for generations. Other people have said in their reviews of Jamaal that booking him was the single best decision they made in the entire wedding process, and I simply couldn't agree more.

Robert was a great wedding photographer for us. I phone interviewed him, had an in-person interview, and heard from 2 of his references about 10 months before our wedding. In the lead-up, he actually reached out to ME, reminding ME that I wanted to touch base with my list of photos, preferences, wedding day details, etc., so that tells me he was on the ball. Once I had the photo list, preferences, etc. documented, he set up a phone call about a week or 2 before the wedding, and we stepped through the timeline, and he advised me how to order the shots, how to make sure family photos go as smoothly as possible, etc. We added one hour to the contract, and the contract change was a breeze. On the wedding day, he was on time and ready to go for our first look. I was an antzy bride, so he dealt with the, "What time is it?" question a lot and didn't seem to mind. (Actually, I was honest about not being crazy about posed pictures to begin with, and he didn't seem offended.) He breezed us through family portraits before the ceremony and then the big family portraits during cocktail hour. I actually had 30 minutes of my cocktail hour thanks to him. I know he was *there,* but I totally didn't notice him during the ceremony or reception. He gave us a heads up when his time was up and thanked us for our business. Per our contract, he delivered preview pictures the next business day--only he provided 14--4 more than contractually obligated. And again, within contract deadlines, he delivered the entire set of photos 5 weeks and 1 day after the wedding. Then we received the CD with the images about 6–7 weeks after the wedding. Out of the 800ish photos he took, I find about 175 to be good candidates for an album. He got great photos and followed my preferences. Very happy with Robert and the photos.

I can't say enough good things about Rachel. She met with me before the wedding and took time to get know us. She has a wonderful creative eye for settings and a knack for capturing the spirit of the event with her candid photography. Our staged group photos worked smoothly. I received my photos quickly within a few weeks of the wedding. Mostly, Rachel is a smart, intuitive, and sweet person. It was a pleasure to work with her.

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)

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:)

Intentional Visuals provided wedding videography services for our wedding this past June. We LOVE the highlight video Kevin edited for us and the raw footage. Kevin was very professional, affordable and did a great job. We are so happy we decided to capture video of the day! I've been to many weddings were the photographers and videographers seemed to be competing with each other for shots, and would be in the way if the guests. This was NOT the case at all with Intentional Visuals. In fact, several of my guests commented later how well our videoprapher and photographer worked together to coordinate shots, and many had thought that they worked together regularly, when in reality they were from 2 different companies and they hadn't met until they got to the venue for the wedding! We couldn't be happier with how things turned out; I highly recommend Intentional Visuals for wedding videography!!

Working with Jethro was the best experience I have encountered in my career. Having worked with Bill Shaddix a White House photographer during Clinton and Bush Administration I thought that they were top shelf but Jethro by far surpassed them in professionalism. He has a spirit the captured all the participants by the quality of his work. I will always remember how his presence added to the success of the Class of 1967 50th Class Reunion!

I couldn't be happier with this experience. Dennis was so patient - I could tell that it was important to him that we get plenty of great shots and in various poses. He helped me with how to stand, how to tilt my head, etc. so my pictures were flattering. This made a huge difference for me because the last thing I know how to do is model. I also liked seeing the pictures on his camera as we went, so I knew I was getting what I wanted; I didn't have to wonder if I would be happy with the outcome. And, my gallery was ready SUPER fast. This was worth every penny. His great personality was a bonus! I already know I will be hiring Dennis again.
