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!

Katya and her helper were very courteous and very professional as they photographed our wedding. She showed up on time and they took many pictures of both the ceremony and the reception after. Many of those photos were absolutely stunning, and we didn't regret one dollar we spent on her services to photograph our wedding.

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.

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

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!

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!

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.

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 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!

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:)

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)

We hired Tamiraa for family and kids photo session. The photos were taken beautifully and we couldn't be more happier. Tamiraa made us look our best in the photos (I don't know how she did that :-) ) Tamiraa was very professional and punctual and she is the sweetest photographer we've ever met. She was very patient with our kids (3 and 5). We are a big fan of her work and will come back for more. Thank you Tamiraa!

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.

Shoshanna is an amazing photographer. We are definitely going to make her our family photographer. We worked with Sosi several times and every time we felt like we couldn’t have made a better decision. Not only did our pictures turn out beautifully - but she was incredibly easy to work with from beginning to end. She has an amazing and very artistic eye for any kind of photos. All the shots we have are full of color and life and do not resemble your typical staged shots. We loved her work. We highly suggest meeting with Sosi and booking her for any upcoming photo needs you may have - she's worth every penny!

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.

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.

I hired Jared as my photographer for my wedding and got to have some early on experience with him during my engagement shoot. My wedding is in Virginia next year (2018) which he is coming all the way down for, and finding someone to travel especially so far at such a great price, is amazing. During our engagement shoot, he listened to what me and my fiance had to say about what type of feel we were going and when we didn't know, he was amazing with direction. We had a huge range of photos from various sites we visited as well as an outfit change, and all pictures came out amazing. He went beyond my expectations with capturing the magic of the day. At first I was stressed about getting pictures but his calm and relaxed demeanor made for a very fun shoot. His daughter was also there to help and she was so sweet. I love how family oriented his business is. His turn over time for pictures was faster than I had expected with great results. For the quality and price I'm definitely glad he'll be the one to capture my big day. :)
