A friend who was supposed to photograph our upcoming Halloween bagged out on me the week before, and I began a panicky search on the web to determine my chances on finding a good, reasonably priced photographer at such short notice. I stumbled upon this amazing site, and literally within 8 minutes I had my first quote from Mark Wilson. I received 5 other quotes shortly after, but Mark's quick response, great reviews and fair price point won me over. He is a super nice guy, too. :) The photographs were for our "Dead or Alive on the Red Carpet"-themed Halloween party and they came out SO perfect!! I would hire Mark again in a heartbeat for any other photography projects I may have in the future.

Mark is a wonderful photographer - I am very camera-shy and am prone to taking cheesy pictures, but he helped make the process comfortable, natural and fun. Pictures turned out great - couldn't be happier! Would absolutely recommend to anyone. Thanks, Mark!

To preface, I have significant experience in graphic design, photo editing and DSLR photography. Where does one such as my self go to get my photos taken? Ivan Djikaev. I don't find my impressed with the quality, composition and quality of photos that a lot of "professional" photographers these days tend to produce, but as a hobbyist photographer myself and someone who prides himself on his eye for detail, I can say with certainty that Ivan is on another level. The man is not only very talented, but accommodating and flexible. His quality of work speaks for itself, the end product is worth every penny, and I look forward to working with him again in the future!

Ivan was a pleasure to work with and delivered exactly what we wanted. We requested fairly simple photography for our wedding -- ceremony and a couple hours of reception only, no "first look" or anything -- which perhaps might have frustrated a lesser photographer in capturing intimate moments. But all of Ivan's photos were both stunning and meaningful; he has an excellent eye not just for the larger scene but also for the small, special moments between people. On top of it, his rate is EXTREMELY reasonable, considering that his quality of work exceeds that of many other photographers we found who charged MUCH higher. We would happily hire him again!

Ivan was great working with and his work is far greater than other photographers who contacted me. I would definetly recommend him to others!

Hello. It was so easy to work with Bob. I needed some pictures for resume. I personally prefer a photographer who could give me a professional advice on how to pose, how to tilt my head or, just in general, what to do in front of the camera. Bob was great great at giving such advice. He would fix my collar, and my tie whenever it looks less than neat; He is that person who gives attention to detail! He is also very good at leading the session, not in a pushy way. Not a minute was wasted. He knew exactly what to do every minute of the session. I was originally going to change two outfits but I changed my mind to try 4-5 outfits, and Bob was totally fine with me. (He did not mention about charging me more or anything like that, not a bit. I found that extremely professional of him) He also has the natural neck for making the customer feel comfortable, you will notice this when you work with Bob! I feel super content with the final 5 images I received from Bob. I will most definitely work with him again for business-style photos and beyond!

Bob was an outstanding photographer! With his background in comedy, he had everyone in my family and wedding party laughing - creating great natural smiles and semi-candid shots. He was very fair and flexible throughout the planning process, and professional as well. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer!

I have known Greg for several years. I consider him a friends and sometimes doing business with a friend is not always a good idea. In our instance, it proved to be the BEST idea. He has a fantastic eye and is willing to share his toughts, ideas, etc. about a particulare aspect of a shoot, lighting, angles, etc. to maximize the outcome of the process and in turn, his final product. Greg Caparell is the ONLY photographer we will use, for business and personal (he took great shots of my family) and I would STRONGLY recommend using him for all of your photography needs.

We let 3 photographers do a test shoot. Greg was by far the best! We needed lifestyle shots so we gave Greg some samples. He found the model, picked the location, and without direction on his own produced the best shots we have ever seen

For my daughter's 2 year old photoshoot, I wanted a family photographer, who is approachable, who is not too commercial but professional and creative at the same time. My search stopped with Igor, I liked his previous work with kids. we had an outdoor photoshoot, he was supposed to take an hour for the photoshoot, but my little one wasn't very supportive that day... He gave her enough time. it was a very tiring job handling my baby as she made all of us run all over the park!! I really appreciate his patience!! we got our pictures in 3days and he gave us more retouched photos than what he was supposed to give!! He is always in touch with you, listens to what you want and gives his best!

Igor was fantastic! We hired him to do family pictures which included 2 young children under the age of 4. He arrived on time (drove 2 hrs each way to get to us!). He was patient with our kids who weren't excited to be taking pictures. He made great recommendations on background and people placement. He would have done more but our kids were done after 1.5 hrs. We have used more expensive photographers, and Igor's work is on par with theirs. Our pictures are beautiful and we appreciate his work! Highly recommend!

With Chuck Nacke, you will experience a true professional from your first contact through the completion of your photos. Most importantly, you will find that he is a superb photographer, lighting carefully and well, and ensuring that you have numerous excellent photos among which to choose your portrait. I cannot say enough about my experience with Chuck. If he costs a bit more than the other photographers, do not hesitate, his product is well worth it. For a few more details about the experience, Chuck came to my home, set up his gear and backdrops, and allowed me several wardrobe changes. We also did some shots outside and with my puppy Gretel. So besides checking that professional box, I have a wonderful shot of me and my dog that I will treasure for the rest of my life. Oh, and the icing on the cake is that Chuck is a fascinating guy with fantastic life stories. You will feel like a mini-celebrity and really enjoy your time with him.

Chuck Nacke is a world-class professional photographer. He photographed our organization's conference in Boston and did a fantastic job. His shots are amazing- candid and posed. A true professional, Chuck arrived with his cameras and lighting in tow early and stayed well past the end to ensure all photos were taken. We received the photographs touched up to professional magazine quality in record time. I would not hesitate to recommend him to my friends!! Thank you, Chuck!

My husband Aaron and I found Jim on Thumbtack.com while looking for photographers for our wedding. Aaron and I had already spent hours over the past weekends looking at photographer websites. We weren't excited about any of them until we stumbled upon Jim. It was the first time we were both enthusiastic about any of the photographers we had found online. We immediately decided to contact Jim. He gave us a great quote for the wedding photography, and it included a special engagement shoot to get to know each other and get some shots taken before the big day. Jim was so flexible in helping us find a place to hold the engagement shoot. We ultimately decided to meet in Portsmouth for a sunset brewery tour and photo shoot. It was amazing! We had such a great time at the shoot, and Jim was so personable. He made what many would consider a stressful occasion such a fun experience. He did a great job at balancing the brewery stops with getting the important shots taken. After the engagement shoot, we were even more confident that we had chosen the right guy for the job. And even more so when he sent the edited photos only a week or so after the shoot. Fast forward to the week of the wedding. Jim was extremely proactive in making sure everything was set for the big day. We were so excited when he told us that he would have a second shooter helping him at the wedding. At the wedding, Jim made sure we captured all of the moments that we hoped for, and so many special moments that we never would have thought of ourselves. He made sure to send us a sampling of the night while we were on our honeymoon, and then delivered the complete set of photos only a few weeks later. It is an understatement to say how happy we were with the photos!! Finally, Jim's website is very convenient to use, and we are able to access and download our photos anytime, in single and bulk downloads. The images are high quality, high resolution jpegs that are large enough that you don't have to worry about pixelation when printing large photos for your friends and family. I can't think of anything else to add except that Jim is amazing and he will take great care in documenting your special day!

I can't say anything but the best about Jim Barbere Photography! We met with several different photographers when beginning to plan our wedding. Jim offered us a tremendous value compared to the cost of all the others. His package included an engagement session at no extra cost. My (now) husband and I were both a bit reluctant since neither of us really enjoy having our picture taken. Jim used this session to get to know us and made us feel more comfortable. We had a fun time and the photos came out beautifully. When it came to the wedding day, Jim and his second shooter Shauna were both professional and super accommodating to make sure we got all the shots we really wanted. Shauna even got into the water at the beach in October to get just the right angle! My whole family kept telling me how great he was and what a good job they both were doing. Jim was such a pleasure to work with and his photographs are all stunning and creative. Thank you for making our day so special and capturing that feeling so well in your work!

Working with Jim was a true pleasure! He's a talented photographer, but also an extremely nice guy who's very easy to work with. He took lots of time in advance of the wedding to talk with us and meet with us in person and get to know us and our families, and the night of the event he and the second shooter arrived early and worked hard all night. The effort shows, and at an extremely reasonable price, especially compared to what many wedding photographers are charging these days. Would highly recommend!

“Talented photographers” are very hard to find, especially when needed to capture moments of honest love. My fiance and I had the greatest pleasure of working with Mark during our shoot. What got to me, the future bride to-be, was how passionate and patient he was. I had my sister there, who was a huge comfort for me because she, herself, is a professional model who has been in the spotlight thousands of times, and he did not let that trouble him. He found that rather amusing and made the time more enjoyable. How his certain suggestions for certain things made the photos appear more natural and raw. We had the chance to know each other a little bit more and I shared to him that we had just built our first home together this past May 2017. He then insisted we switched the location of the photoshoot to the new house. Now, the photos have more value knowing that the background of the images, is our home. Let’s not forget how funny his guy is either! How 2 ½ hours went by so effortlessly because we all were just having so much fun! He’s skillful. He’s sharp. He’s humorous. He is someone that we definitely hire for any other occasions.
