We couldn't be any happier with Ella Grace Photography for so many reasons! 1. Carissa is SO organized! I talked to several photographers but she was by far the most organized and experienced. She has you fill out a wedding day timeline form where you include each picture you want during the cocktail hour- streamlining the experience. You also tell her ahead of time anything you definitely want her to capture, which leaves you feeling confident she will capture your full experience in exactly the way you dreamed! 2. Carissa works incredibly hard to get a clear and comprehensive idea of who you are and your personal style, as well as what you want from your wedding photography. She talked to me for a significant amount of time to get an idea of what feel I wanted my photos to have, and what I wanted from them, and then helped me refine my ideas and put them into words. We ended up deciding on a romantic, soft look and that is exactly how my pictures ended up! 3. When looking for my photographer, my number one priority was capturing the emotions of the day and the way we felt, and capturing the most important and meaningful moments in a way that would convey the emotions of the moment. I could try to explain how perfectly she did that, but I'll just say this - check out her website, her photo gallery speaks for itself. I cried several times looking through the photos because I am just so happy that all of our special moments are captured forever in beautiful photographs that exude the emotions and meanings of the moments they depict. 4. On the wedding day, Carissa is efficient but kind and patient, organized, confidence-inspiring, and fun. You will genuinely enjoy taking pictures with her as her joy and kindness make taking pictures yet another wonderful part of your wedding day. 5. THE PICTURES ARE GORGEOUS. Again, I could list a thousand reasons why, like her creative eye, her attention to detail, but I'd rather just send you to her website to see her pics!

I have managed marketing communications programs for more than 25 years and have hired photographers to deliver all formats of images over the years. Melissa is one of the best talents I've worked with on portraits, event, and editorial photography. For more than three years recently I watched Melissa bring just the right blend of artist eye and/or practical photojournalist talents to a dozen different jobs. Melissa puts her portrait subjects at ease, and when working an event she is truly "stealthy." When time has been limited her set-up speed and forethought about working the sun angles or interior lighting givens have saved the day several times. Melissa has an eye for "the shot" and always delivers professional results.

This review is long overdue! Justin is an exceptional photographer. He is a highly professional and extremely talented artist. His work was flawless. We were fortunate to have him capture our special shoot while visiting Cape Elizabeth, Maine for an early Father's Day celebration for my husband. He was on time and delivered all of what he promised in a very timely fashion. He even fell ill before our scheduled appointment yet he showed up after leaving the hospital which is a testament to his character and dedication to his craft. I look forward to working with Justin again in the future and highly recommend him.

Words cannot describe the amazing photos Connor took for our daughters wedding!! When our daughter announced she was getting married back in February there were a few options as to who we were going to ask to be her photographer. As the next 3 months flew by and the last option that our daughter and her fiancé were leaning towards took nice picture but was not a professional, my husband and I wanted pictures for our daughters wedding that would capture moments never to forget...and that is exactly what Connor did! I am so happy to have found Connor through Thumbtack. He was the first one that answered my request and after reading review after review, reading his profile and viewing photos taken by him, my instincts told me to hire him. I would have to say that it was one of the best decisions I have ever made! I know that there will be upcoming weddings in the family and I will definitely give them Connor's name. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

In Real Estate today the most important piece in selling a home is the photography. I acquired a listing of a gorgeous contemporary featuring soaring ceiling, massive windows allowing floods of light into the home. I knew I need a highly skilled photographer to capture the architectural details and uniqueness of this home. Celeste did just that! Celeste was diligent in finding the right angles, light, she used various equipment and did whatever it took to capture this home's character. The buyer, not in the market for a contemporary, actually commented that her photos was the reason he decided to look at this home! I have used her services on other projects both professional and personal. All were done with the same high standard she sets for herself. I highly recommend her for her skills and energy she brings to the table. Charlene G.

I chose Sara to be my photographer for my college graduation photo shoot. She was fun, relaxed, and professional. She suggested different poses and was open to my ideas as well. She had a quick turn around on photos as well. Reasonable rates. You won't be disappointed with her work. I loved my photos!

ERKAN BARIN IS A GENIUS!!! We hired Erkan for our May 2010 wedding and he was so awesome!!! We had a previous session with him for engagement photos and had so much fun, which only made us even more excited about him doing our wedding. Our engagement photos were so beautiful!! On our wedding day, he came to the hotel very much on time to take pre wedding photos and was able to capture so many beautiful candids of my bridesmaids and I in our "girl moments" . Reviewing them made me cry all over again. The wedding photos were JUST AS beautiful. He was professional, friendly and super easy to work with! My whole bridal party absolutely loved him! I would refer Erkan to family and friends with the highest recommendation for his wonderful work!! We would absolutely use his services again.

I'd absolutely recommend anyone looking for an artistic photographer to use Prarthana's services! You won't regret.

Artistic Edge Photography is the name of my service and an explanation of my perspective. I like to think that it's not just a job, but it's a hobby. I approach every situation with the intention of not only capturing my subject naturally but also with an artistic edge --something that grabs your attention and shows a bit of personality. I am happy to be a part of the Camera Work Cooperative with a studio space on Summer St. in South Boston. It is conveniently located minutes from downtown and right on the bus line with off-street parking available as well. I truly enjoy shooting; therefore, I look for jobs that won't turn my passion into anxiety. I've worked in a mall-based studio in the past where I've learned quite a bit but found myself missing the excitement that you find in freelance photography. Through freelance work, I hope to provide practical images to everyday people. I've done weddings, birthday parties, corporate events, individual sittings with infants, teens and adults, family sittings, pet sittings and maternity shoots. I work really well with children, resulting in genuine images and many smiles. I look forward to every shoot. I find that no two jobs are ever the same, and that's the best part.

Good headshots show your enthusiasm, passion, charisma, and personality. The world is saturated with boring pictures, and your audience is already fed up with generic stock images. The world is looking for real people showing a bit of their character, and that's what makes people trust you. I encourage everyone to go one notch further, a small step that puts you at a higher level. Everyone has their comfort zone. A lot of people start our first conversation telling that they never liked having pictures of them taken (but people are generally happy with the results.). We work with these real people within the styles appropriate for their industries. BEAUPIX Studio for headshots and portraits provides quality executive portraits, headshots, corporate photography and online dating profile pictures, and is the leading expert in this area. Fully equipped commercial photography studio is set up to capture great expression from people with busy life and career.
