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.

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.

Wow I cannot begin to express my gratitude for the service that I received from Anthony Herbert. My husband (fiancé at the time) and I hired Anthony to be our photographer for one of the most special occasions of our life, "Our Wedding". Your wedding is a day where you want everything to be absolutely perfect, especially your photos. We had previously seen some of Anthony's work and I told my husband I want him to be our photographer. His pictures were so impressive, from the color, to the clarity of the images, the sharpness, the poses and those special moments that he captured were just breath taking. Anthony Herbert conducted himself with such professionalism, he was kind and respectful and made our day, one we will never forget. He was with us our entire wedding capturing ever special moment of our day, and the pictures speaks volumes about his work. My husband and I were literally speechless when we saw our photos, and It takes a lot to impress my husband, we could not put our photos down for hours, they were simply amazing, simply beautiful. Every person we showed our photos too and I mean we showed a lot of people, the 1st thing they asked who was your photographer. I have had many people say our photos should be in art galleries, or in magazines. Your not only going to find that Anthony takes great pride in his work, but your going to find a respectful, professional, reasonable photographer that's makes his clients feel just like family. I would truly recommend Anthony Herbert of Primtyme Photography to any and everybody who would like to have a photo album that told the story of your special day without having to put a caption under each picture, the pictures themselves tell the fantastic story...! He is remarkable..!

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.

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 contacted Julie for some professional heads hots for my work profile. Her response was instant. The whole process was hassle free. On the day of actual photo-shoot, I expressed my inhibitions about how not so comfortable I am in front of a photographer. She not only lightened up the whole session but went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. After the photo-session, she was spot on with her timing and sent me all the edits. For all my future photo-shoots, she is my go to person. She is top notch as far as taking head shots is concerned and at the same time she is interpersonal. I would gladly recommend to all my friends and family with similar needs. Thanks again Julie.

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!

Kasheem did an awesome job. Our wedding was a very NON-Traditional , self united wedding performed at a camp ground. Kasheem arrived early and stayed as long as we needed him. he took a ton of photos and reviewed them with me to make sure they were ok. He was very friendly and open to our irregular format. He wasted no time getting our photos edit and ready for download. We will recommend his service to our family and friends and will hire him again if we need a photographer..

Corey was a delight to work with from start to finish. He was responsive to our questions and helped us identify the right location for the photo shoot. He arrived ahead of time to scout the location for just the right spots and made us feel at ease instantly. During the shoot Corey was collaborative and offered great suggestions that helped us come across naturally. This really showed through in the photos as we look comfortable and not stiff. (And this was in both the more formal portraits and in the candid shots.) Would we work with Corey again? Absolutely. Would we recommend him to others? You betcha. Thanks for a great session, Corey. You've helped us capture some truly beautiful memories. Cheers!
