I needed to hire a professional photographer to feature one of our outstanding alumni from Western State Colorado University. Since the alumni lived in Washington, and we didn't have any contacts in the area, we carefully researched local photographers and spent hours pouring over reviews and samples. I'm very pleased that we selected Doug Sanford as our top choice. He responded very quickly to all calls, texts, and emails. Doug handled the arrangements for the photo session with the alumni, and produced exceptional pictures which exceeded our expectations. The price was exactly as quoted and a good value for such high quality work. This couldn't have gone more smoothly, even if it had been in our own town. Doug made my job easier. Do yourself a favor and go with Doug Sanford.

We were SO thankful to find Monumental Arts and K on such short notice - we had our wedding in a museum in Alexandria and our friend, an amateur photographer, fell through just 2 weeks before our February 21st wedding - I was so scared because the wedding photos are SO important to me, I even still have my parents album and their wedding picture at home! He met with us and we discussed our wedding plans, laid out our timeline, and he showed me the most beautiful wedding albums and enlargements from weddings he photographed before - my fiancé even liked them! We decided right then and there Even though we were just having a shorter wedding, nothing all day, we still went with his more expensive collection (I think it was the Sapphire Collection) because we knew we would be getting an album and wanted two photographers. He showed up on the wedding day and walked us through everything we asked for - even suggesting some outdoor pictures I didn't expect to get because the weather turned out beautiful!! Plus, he stayed an extra 30 minutes after things starting running behind, which was so nice of him. We are so thankful for his work and professionalism! We met with him to discuss the photos we want in our album and to order enlargements, and he made it so easy to do everything. I have two other friends getting married this year in Northern Virginia, and we've definitely recommended K and his team to them!

Gabe is the most phenomenal photographer I have ever had in my life. Let me start by saying I wish Gabe was my wedding photographer. Gabe photographed a birthday party for my daughter. He was so great with communication and wanted to get my perspective before the party so he was able to see my vision. He was around taking pictures without being in the way. Gabe remembered so many people's names and people were happy to smile for the camera because of Gabe's charm. When I walked around, I heard a guest say, "I want to hire him for my next party!" I couldn't imagine any future parties any other way! Gabe, you are amazing and we can't wait to see you for the next party! Thank you for EVERYTHING!

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

My husband and I were so very fortunate to have Robert as our photographer for our wedding 11/20/16. Robert photographed our ceremony and reception which were held at two different locations, and took time with us to set up outdoor shots to capture the beautiful fall scenery. Robert captured the beauty of our surroundings and wonderful moments between my new husband and I as well as our family and friends. He is very detail oriented and professional, and honestly, just a really fun guy : ) Our full album was ready before the suggested date! Robert even gave us a glance at half of our pictures before they were all developed. This was such a pleasant surprise as we were right in the middle of the very busy holiday season. Thank you Robert for being a part of our wedding day and sharing your talent with us. We now have the best memories in an album!

Jamaal, is absolutely wonderful!! He was extremely professional, on time, and such a pleasure to work with. Jamaal knew exactly what I wanted and he understood exactly how momentous this occasion was for me. My photos are absolutely gorgeous and will last for a lifetime. He even had additional photos available that were so unexpected and beautiful. Jamaal gets the assignment, and captured moments. Everyone keeps asking me who was the photographer???He is insightful, considerate, smart, and sharp. He gets the energy in the room and everything needed for a wonderful photo shoot. You won't regret hiring Jamaal. I'm hoping to use Jamaal for most of my work if he is available, and he will definitely be the photographer at my future wedding!! Whenever that happens! LOL

He came to my house to do some portrait-type photography. I appreciated that Joe was relaxed and friendly and didn't seem rushed. I got the photos back from him very quickly. He was helpful in suggesting good backgrounds as well. I was very pleased with the end result. I think he'd make a great family photographer also.

I helped my friend find a wedding photographer on Thumbtack, and we were immediately impressed with Ashley’s beautiful work. She was very easy to work with, and she helped their wedding day run smoothly. The bride and groom were very happy with their photos and said that she captured everything they wanted and more. We look forward to working with her again in the future.

I could not have asked for a better photographer for my wedding. Not only is she an amazing photographer but she's the biggest sweetheart I've ever met. EVERYONE at my wedding loved Priscilla and the group she brought. I want to have another event where I need a photographer just so I can hire her again!! I don't even know what else to say because my experience was beyond perfect. I encourage everyone to use Priscilla with absolutely no hesitation.

I would definitely hire this photographer again. She was hired to photograph our company's holiday party. She was to do candid shots as well as requested photos of groups or couples. She arrived on time and was always busy. While I haven't seen the completed product yet, I am truly looking forward to seeing what she has captured on film. I highly recommend this photographer.

We appreciate you more than we can say!

Justin and I started a conversation a little over a week ago. I was looking for a photographer who would be able to take us some couples photos for the holiday season. From the very start, Justin was punctual and he continued to be punctual through to the delivery of the photos. Often times when people hire photographers, people complain that photographers lose momentum once they’ve been offered the gig or once they’ve received payment. This is absolutely not the case with Justin. Justin’s punctuality definitely has been a plus point all the way. I also appreciated that Justin works with clients across varying price points. In addition, I must say Justin’s offer was definitely reasonable given that we’re situated in the DMV. Interacting with Justin, one of the first things I let him know was that I just wanted a quick photo shoot that would be a leg up from our usual selfies. Justin understood exactly what I was expecting out of our photo shoot. Justin and I worked out the details over text, and the photo shoot was quick and effortless. Though I didn’t end up calling him myself, I did pass on Justin’s phone number to a few colleagues of mine - he had such a great offer that I had to share with others! On that note, if you need to hop on the phone to talk details, just ask for his phone number. I am absolutely all about Pinterest and all things Pinterest related. I had ideas of poses but when we met up, my mind sort of went blank (I blame the cold!) and Justin had great ideas which resulted in some beautiful photos of the two of us. I also have to praise Justin’s understanding of space, lighting, and photography concept. Justin took a handful of posed and candid photos, which we both appreciated. Not only is Justin talented, but he is easygoing too. And that’s definitely a plus point when hiring a photographer. If you can’t be yourself around your photographer or if the photographer can’t get you to feel relaxed and at east, then you might as well throw in the towel because you won’t get quality photos. Thank you, Justin, we love love love our photos!! PS: Hire Justin. If my photos are any testament, I’m sure you too will be more than satisfied with yours!

Talah was so wonderful capturing family photos for my parents 50th wedding anniversary. Despite the cold weather and cloudy skies, Talah was a ray of sunshine and had us all laughing and enjoying ourselves. We will treasure these pictures for years and years!
