Mark Wilson Images is OUTSTANDING. I contacted him and he got back to me in 1-2 Hours; he responded so quickly and walked me through how my 11 Year Old Daughters Photo Shoot would go; I was getting Head Shots and Full Body. He emailed my photos within 2 days. They are AMAZING, my daughter is in Acting and Monologue Classes and they said her photos came out better then they have seen even by their Photographer that they use. I Highly Recommend Mark Wilson and the Price is the BEST I FOUND IN BOSTON. He is very Professional he made my daughter feel so comfortable, she said mom he is so nice and my Photos are Beautiful. I will be using him again many times. He even sent me affordable links to have them printed. If you are looking for Top Quality I say contact Mark Wilson Images. Crystal Boston, MA

Mark photographed our wedding this past September and did a fantastic job. We weren't able to meet until the day of the event but he jumped right in and was extremely friendly, approachable, and professional. My husband and I both loved the shots from the day. Mark was especially great at capturing beautiful portrait shots of our guests. I would definitely hire Mark again.

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!

I cannot praise Ivan highly enough. I needed an author photo for my novel & I HATE being photographed. Ivan was as kind & intuitive as he was professional and helped me through the process. By the end, I was actually having fun. He is a gifted portrait photographer with a background in fashion photography. He was wonderfully patient in guiding me through the process of emailing photos to my publisher. I highly recommend him!

We LOVE LOVE the photos!!! You are an amazing photographer and person. We were apprehensive about the photos because of the challenges we have with our son, but your patients and guidance made us feel very comfortable and relaxed during the shoot- but the part that blew us away was THE PICTURES. I just couldn’t believe the moments that you were able to capture and after reviewing them I had tears in my eyes!! We are so lucky to have found you and have you in our life to capture more of our families memories! We have shared our family portrait and are amazed how quickly you pulled it all together. Countless friends and family have complimented you over and over again! I could write on and on… GREAT EXPEREINCE!!!!!

We hired Jeanne to shoot our son’s senior portraits. Jeanne was a wonderful photographer she is so professional and flexible, she went out of her way to ensure that our pictures were what we wanted. She is very easy to work with and made the photo shoot fun. Her easy personality relaxed us so that he didn’t look “staged” in his photos. She also made sure that he had plenty of pictures to choose from for his senior portrait.

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!

We engaged Bob Keene to photograph our daughter's Bat Mitzvah in 2015. Bob was fantastic! We discussed logistics in advance, and Bob was on his feet the entire night, taking many candid photographs that really captured the evening. Adults and children were relaxed in his presence - we hardly knew he was there until we previewed the terrific results. Thanks Bob!

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

I am glad that I found Jim of Fairway Photos. He did a shoot for my family portrait on Nov 3, 2014 despite the snowy, wet day he still showed up on time. Jim is fun and patient, but yet very professional. We had lots of laugh during the shoot and we are very please with the outcome of the photos. I would recommend Jim for those who are looking for a freelance photographer!

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!

Kristen took photos for my daughter's first birthday as well as some family pictures and did an absolutely fabulous job! From the initial communication (including being available to take photos within the same week!), to the idea of where to take the pictures, to painting letters to match her birthday color scheme....I was impressed before even meeting her! And she definitely didn't disappoint. She was timely, professional, and easy going which made it a very comfortable experience. Not to mention that my daughter's pictures came out fantastic! We left with a flash drive and will be able to have gorgeous pictures for her party. We definitely plan to use Kristen again as we encounter more family milestones!

We can't say enough great things about Kristen. She is so kind, patient, and friendly. From the beginning, she helps everyone feel at ease and that really shows in the images she captures. She has a great eye and is so creative in her thinking. We have only known Kristen for a short time, but during our session it felt like we were all old friends. If you want a photographer who helps your family's natural beauty shine through, you should absolutely hire her. Thank you, Kristen, for capturing so many nice memories for our family.

If you want great pictures and photographer that makes the experience relaxed and fun , choose Kristen Leclair Photography.

This was one of the best things I have ever done! I was so nervous as I am not a size 2 with the perfect body but wanted to do something special for my soon to be Husband to give him on his birthday while we are on our Honeymoon. Alan was great!!! made me very comfortable, worked with me leading up as I created a Pinterest board for us to share ideas on. The day of was so easy, I was a little nervous but by the end I was loving it and thinking about doing it again in the spring, maybe a calendar...Also go for the hair and makeup option, the girls from the Salon Alan works with were amazing and worth every penny. I recommend this to anyone and everyone as it is a great feeling and Alan's Pictures are incredible!!! IM SOOOOO HAPPY I DID THIS!!!! And feel I have found a photographer to be a part of our family as we move forward in life, not just for the spicy moments but also for the sweet. :) Thank you again!

Choosing Alan to be our wedding photographer was the best decision we made. My bride and I talked with Alan before the wedding about how we wanted all of our pictures to look as though we didn't even know our pictures were being taken. That's exactly what Alan did. From the pictures of getting ready at the hotel to the details at our wedding venue to the countless shots of our party Alan did a magnificent job with everything. Not to mention that he managed to edit and show us our pictures 72 hours after our wedding! I would recommend Alan to anyone that is looking for an excellent photographer.

While I understand things happen - the photographer didn't show up for the event due to an emergency (didn't provide any notice) - and then didn't provide a solution or follow up within 24 hours of the missed event. I find this to be highly unprofessional and frustrating - as it created a huge loss for my organization and it's been left unaddressed. Bottom line - if an emergency happens - provide some remedy for the person you are letting down.

Pari was amazing! She was very easy to work with and willing to accommodate. I found I Felt Design Studio on Thumbtack along with three other quotes for face painting for my 3 year old son's birthday party. In looking at the pictures, I could tell Pari had talent especially seeing the work she has done with Henna. She responded to my inquiries almost immediately and was competitive with her rate. She arrived on time as planned and the kids of all ages were thrilled and intrigued. She had a good variety of pictures and designs and did a great job with her application. There were also a number of teenagers and adults that joined the fun! Other guests complimented her great work and said how much faster she was than other face painters they had in the past. I was proud to have Pari at my son's party and I recommend you invite her to your next event. People of all ages will love it! Thank you Pari!! Hope to see you again soon!

Parijata offered to take pictures for our daughters 2nd birthday party. And believe me when I say Parijata has taken excellent pictures and Very professional. Better than any pictures we have had from any other photographers till date. Including close-ups and portfolios. She really understands photography well. Other that that, Parijata is extremely skilled and talented with her paintings. She also does mehendi and face painting and arts and crafts. She is also very good at party planning. So you can always rely on Parijata to perform excellently for any task assigned to her and can always count on her. Parijata is very reliable. Parijata is also very forthcoming and always takes an initiative and offers to help and is very friendly and helpful. I wish Parijata best of luck and success in all her endeavors.

From the very start, Karine was a pleasure to work with. She was very responsive via Thumbtack and very flexible with regards to scheduling appointments. Her pricing is excellent, much more reasonable (in my opinion) than most other people that you'll find. On the day of the appointment, she was punctual and ready to go from the start. She was receptive to our ideas about what we wanted for our shots (family portrait with an infant) and was creative in suggesting her own ideas. The pictures that she sent us were magnificent, and we will cherish these captured memories for the rest of our lives. We highly recommend Karine to anyone who wants excellent shots, professional behavior, and great pricing!

I was extremely nervous going into this photo shoot. I have never gotten professional photos done (besides my senior high school pictures) so I wasn’t really sure what to expect. Kate was a literal angel. She made my fiancé and I extremely comfortable. She was very personable and professional at the same time. Kate used every last moment to get the perfect shots for us. She knew which photos to do when, and which poses faltered us as a couple the most. Her candid shots captured our relationship perfectly. She even walked through knee deep snow for a majority of our pictures. Did I mention it was 7 degrees outside and she never complained once even though that’s all my fiancé did?! The quality of her pictures are phenomenal. I would recommend her in a heart beat and if my fiancé and I decide to get married in this state we will 100% ask her to photograph our wedding!
