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!

Valerie was an amazing photographer/woman. She was so helpful at the beginning before we even booked her - she explained what she felt was a great timeline for the day of and put me at ease. I went with a list of questions, and she addressed every question except for 1 before I even had a chance to ask them. She required a reasonable down payment and allows you to break up the rest of the bill into payments if you would. Because her pricing was so great I opted to just give her Cash on the day of the service. Afterward the contract was signed she left me alone. Which was the best thing ever. She always responded timely if I had any questions. She was a great support to have - without needing to dictate what she wanted. She definitely provided me the guidence I needed. The day of she was on time and ready to work. My family can be hard sometimes - she smiled and was extremely professional. She was exactly what I needed to keep the wedding party in line and on schedule. If she was not assertive we would still be taking pictures today a month and a half later. She was in great communication with our DJ the day of to help coordinate all the event timelines so she was ready to snap pictures of everything. The wedding was on a Saturday in August which is an extremely busy time for photographers and she had all the pictures ready to view online the Wednesday following the wedding. She made a beautiful slideshow and sent the link right away. It was easy to share with everyone and anyone can order prints right from there. We have not ordered any prints yet - we can not decide which ones we want to get because there are so many phenomenal ones. Her packages are at a great value and for a reasonable amount more she gives an edited disc of all the pictures. When we have any events in the future we will definitely call Valerie first! I really can not describe how happy we are with all the process and service provided.

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!

We were having a 50th anniversary luncheon for my parents and wanted to have some family portraits done after the lunch at the venue. Frank showed up right on time, got our family groups together in a great setting outdoors and took some terrific shots. He was very flexible and easy to work with. Great price and super quick turnaround. The event was on Saturday and we had the photos, as promised, on Tuesday. I would highly recommend Frank and would definitely use him again!

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

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!

We hired Igor for a family portrait for our Christmas cards and the pictures came out great. Igor worked great with our 4 month old daughter who wasn't in the mood to take pictures, but he was very patient and very easy going. He is also very responsive with quick turn around. We highly recommend him and look forward to using him again in the future.

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!

I haven't had any previous experiences with photographers. My wedding was a small family event, and my fiancé and I planned it in a short period of time. Through some online research, I discovered Jim Barbere Photography and was amazed by his artistic talent and great ability to catch the right moments! We started with a winter photo shoot in the snow and we couldn't say enough. My fiancé who wasn't too interested in the whole idea was very happy with the experience and results! Now we are looking forward to our wedding pictures with Jim. Thank you so much!

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!

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.

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.
