Tina does amazing work! She has conducted major photo shoots with famous models and major movies. Her modeling-photo experience really shines through as Tina has master control of all components of her studio -- all components geared to one goal: making you look the best, fabulous! Tina is a very friendly and welcoming person. She motivates you to bring out your best portrait look. She is the best photographer to have ever taken my portrait in my life. I highly recommend her.
Winstead is an outstanding photographer! This was my very first photo shoot and he prepared me for it exceptionally! He recommended the type of attire I should bring, he recommended how to pose, which stances to make and when! In the end, the pictures looked prolific! Crazy part is, you get so much outstanding service and his price is the most competitive out of all the other thumbtack photographers recommended to me! Save yourself the hassle and stress--hire Winstead and you'll be glad you took this recommendation! Be blessed!
Doug was an engaging, polished professional who adapted to the situation and applied artistic license to achieve splendid results on my photos. I needed executive portrait photos quickly and he was able to deliver a superb product within 24 hours of my sitting. I am very pleased with entire experience.
After a LONG search, covered with other companies that charged so much, I finally found Party Favor Photo for my wedding. Not only did they provide a reasonable price, but their photo gallery looked amazing. On our wedding day they were EASILY one of the highlights of the night! We had Alex help us out and he was very detailed yet easy going with our guest. As the last vendor we booked for our wedding this was a crucial one. Thank you so much!
Highly recommend Greg as a photographer for family portrait. We had a family reunion in Annapolis and thought it would be nice to get a family picture as we are rarely together. Greg was incredibly accommodating, driving down from Baltimore on a Sunday morning. Further, we had two toddlers who were a bit challenging to photograph. Greg was flexible, patient and resourceful (using his expert editing skills to swap their faces with photographs where they were engaged and smiling - looking at the pictures you would have no idea they were edited). Greg is extremely personable, professional and an excellent portrait photographer.
Josh has a unique eye for photography and I love that he is not your typical portrait photographer. He captures moments more naturally through candids rather than formal poses. His photos as a result are more true to life. He's great to work with, super responsive, and very accommodating.
I've worked with numerous photographers before, but none of them compare to Hassan Malik. He has an eye for taking pictures that focus on the subjects and soften the background. He takes the best angles of the subjects (for me it was my fiancé and myself for our engagement session) to ensure that the subjects look the best. His editing skills are phenomenal. He uses airbrush to remove blemishes off of the subjects' faces, he correctly uses saturation and contrast, he plays with the lighting well especially in outdoor photos, and he knows how to take photos that highlight the subjects and make unforgettable memories. Something else that doesn't speak as much to Hassan's photography and editing skills but I think is so important is how professional Hassan is. Not only does he take his job seriously (arriving on time, with the appropriate equipment, etc.), but he truly wants to take wonderful photographs. He goes out of his way to take the photos, sometimes even positioning himself in awkward places so he gets the perfect photographs. He is fun to work with, very easygoing, and he truly wants to provide his clients with the best photographs. I would highly recommend him to anyone (in fact, I've already recommended him to a few friends who are looking for photographers!). I am so glad we chose Hassan for our engagement session photos - they are amazing and my fiancé and I will cherish them for forever!
Thanks to DIM Productions for an amazing experience! Karmin is THE photographer that you want for familial events, sporting events, weddings, and et-cetera. I've hired Karmin a number of times and have never doubted that it was among the best decisions I've ever made. Karmin has impeccable timing, vision and experience to distinguish a great shot from a good one! She's personable, engaging, down-to-earth and just has a way with people that enthralls and disarms them. She's got an uncompromising standard at events and in her private studio. I cannot commend Karmin highly enough! -Al Johnson
Working with Visuals By J. McKenzie was a delightful experience. I am not one usually comfortable in front of a camera, but today I felt valued, suitable and excited to be the subject of my own lifestyle portrait photos. He was prompt, attentive (from first contact on Thumbtack all the way through photo day and beyond) and professional. I would highly and repeatedly recommend his services and will do so at my next opportunity.
Great experience working with Gethro. He was one of the few photographers in the area who could provide printed photos on the spot (with our company logo, no less) and we were very happy with his work.
My experience with Elmo Laing was a powerful trigger of personal memory---from light, to set-up, to processing. By all accounts, he is a meticulous craftsman. Through his eyes and indelible images of my party guests, I am still reliving this momentous occasion ---my 60th birthday celebration. In photograph after photograph, Elmo captured every mood and motion of the affair. He documented the dancing, the band, the striking group portraits, the cake, the room decorum, and of course--ME. His photography has played an important role of constructing memory because the stories leap from their stills. His images are stimulants for remembering---happy lives, families and friends, and what & how we celebrate. I hover over these images! That’s what fantastic photographers do….they show the environment, they show what they saw and they work to compose the best for YOU. That is exactly what Elmo Laing produced for me. Oh, wait a minute, did I mentioned that he is patient, polite, and precise with posing & positioning—a good photographer. Thank you, Elmo for your artistry, storytelling and technical ability.

Jeff is by far one of the best photographers that I've had the pleasure of ever working with in my career. His photos are superb and his professionalism is exceptional. I will definitely hire him for all of our D.C. based shows.
Awesome photographer, very helpful and flexible as well. He did my sisters party and I will hire him every time I have an event. Great photographer in addition to excellent service.
My experience with Miranda was one of my favorites ever with a photographer. I do amateur modeling thanks to Miranda who got me started! Some photographers are extremely tough to get along with and she is someone who can adapt to any situation! She makes you feel like family when photographing you. She always has music on which is nice considering some photographers like it quiet. She is always having a good time with the photo sessions and is always so accommodating. She did my husband and I's engagement photos in the middle of a snow storm in old town Alexandria and she was sooooo patient as I was freezing and wanting to stop. But the hubs and her were persistent saying the shots would be great with snow in them. She has done all sorts of photo sessions with me from engagement & boudoir to frontals & portfolios. I love working with Miranda and would suggest it to anyone looking for a family/personal photographer.
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.
Nandor was the photographers at our worship service last month in Washington DC. He was reliable, communicative, very creative and professional in every way. I can only recommend him as an excellent photographer.
Studio Pri is amazing! We hired Studio Pri off of Thumbtack and have absolutely no regrets in our decision since there are so many photographers out here! We also used them for our engagement photos which turned out beautifully! Priscilla and her team are easy going and very personal. They make you feel comfortable taking photos since most of us aren't used to it! Priscilla was very responsive to emails and got back to me within 1 day. They had our wedding photos and engagement photos ready for us within weeks! We are amazed at how good we looked in them and would definitely used their services again. Thanks so much for capturing all the amazing moments at our wedding :D
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!
We used Dawn Elliott, owner of Snapngiggle Photography, for our recent wedding, and we were absolutely thrilled with every aspect of our experience! Dawn is a class-act, not to mention an extremely warm and caring person who is clearly passionate about what she does and that passion shines through from the first time you meet her. In our case, all of of these traits helped to make everyone that much more comfortable taking photos, which on what can naturally be a very stressful day, was very welcomed, especially for this nervous bride! We were also highly impressed with how well Dawn captured our family's spirit in all of our photos and are grateful for the time and attention she clearly took making sure to capture all of the day's special moments and touches. She did not miss a thing! Dawn's finished work was excellent as well, and again, we simply could not have asked for anything more. We would recommend Dawn without reservation to anyone looking for a photographer for an event. Not only will you be getting a wonderful photographer, but you will also be getting a reliable, trustworthy person! We highly recommend giving Dawn at Snapngiggle your business!
We hired Lizzy to help us take pictures for my father's 90th birthday. We did a lot of family portraits and singles. We also used Lizzy to take pictures of the event. Lizzy was sweet and very professional. She suggested many ideas during the picture taking process. She was very patient with my father who moved slowly. Thanks Lizzy you were great.
She was our paintball teams photographer for a season and preformed fantastically. Wasn't scared to get those amazing shots and the editing she had done was superb. Would definitely recommend her services for anyone needing a quality photographer.
