I found Doug on Thumbtack and was pleased to have him photograph my wedding this past October. First, I was so pleased to meet him before hand and see more of his work so I knew what to expect. But more than that, I realized that Doug is an exciting, interesting, and cheerful person which made the experience even better. He has an artistic eye and really made some beautiful memories that made me excited to have him shoot my big day! During the day, Doug captured fantastic moments and was flexible when we wanted him to get a specific person or time. He was over all energetic and cheerful! I had a few friends that are amateur photographers also take pictures for us and Doug took the time to answer some of their photography questions and giving them tips - going above and beyond his call... Finally, my pictures came out beautiful and in a timely manner. I can't thank him enough for capturing our day and producing this precious keepsake!

We had an open photo booth and roaming photographer at our corporate year end party. The pictures turned out great! Our guests had a fun time with the photo booth and we are able to see all of the photo booth pictures too. We will definitely be using Party Favor Photo again!

Gabriel “Gabe” Martinez (The Marvelous Real Photography) works very hard for his shots. The lengths he goes to for his pictures, he not only wants them to be the best, but wants to meet his clients’ expectations. Both me and my guests was very impressed with him. After seeing Gabe's photo gallery and discussing my 50th birthday celebration vision with him, I immediately knew he was the one! As requested, he integrated videography to capture the music performances to retain with my event memoirs. I booked Gabe without seeing another photographer and it was the BEST decision! On my big day, Gabe arrived early, set up, and after a quick run through of the event flow with me, I was completely at ease knowing that Gabe would capture shots in a journalistic photography style that I will cherish for years to come. His professionalism, creativity, cheerfulness, and fun-loving interaction with me and my guests created a great atmosphere and experience for everyone. He knows how to make you feel comfortable event while the camera may be surprisingly aimed directly in your face — He makes taking photos fun! During the event, I sneaked a peek at the photo display. Gabe caught me peeking and showed me a few of the shots. The pictures were stunning! With his creative eye, he captured the timeline of my event while shooting photos in the most unique places. I highly recommend hiring Gabriel “Gabe” Martinez (The Marvelous Real Photography) for any engagement. Gabe exceeded my expectations and I will contact him again for future events.

I’m happy to recommend Josh to anyone looking for an engagement photographer in the D.C. area. From our initial conversations on Thumbtack to the final delivery of our photos, Josh was quick to respond to our questions and concerns. He even FaceTimed with us before the shoot to answer our questions. To be honest, my fiancé and I were a bit nervous for the photo shoot (we are more comfortable as “behind the scenes” folks), and within a few minutes, Josh made us feel completely at ease. He made our personalities shine through in our photos, and we are really proud to show our photos to friends and family. Thank you, Josh, for your beautiful photos and impressive service!

D.I.M was very professional with our engagement pictures. I asked them for some last minute items and they were able to handle the requests with zero issues. Our photographer was even able to get a table with two chairs by the harbor set up with the bottle of champagne I asked him to bring. I would highly recommend D.I.M to anyone. Thank you for making my proposal that much easier!! Sincerely, Tony

Cristi was fantastic! Exceeded our expectations and was a professional in every sense of the word. Loved that he was early which gave us a chance to see if our preferred location would work. He pointed out that we would have the sun in our eyes, not good and found another spot close by which was perfect! We were a large family group with lots of strong personalities. He was able to get us to move along and used humor to make our session fun. Very easy to communicate with and quickly answered all of my questions. We were all coming in from different states and he was very nice about working with the tight schedule we had. I would definitely use him again if I needed a professional photographer for ANY occasion. The pictures come out wonderful and everyone was surprised at how he was able to get us to quit talking long enough to have us all looking in the right direction. Thank you Cristi for making this a fun family memory with loads of beautiful pictures as well!

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.

Monique was so much fun to work with! I had a very tight schedule and a limited amount of time to get engagement photos done. She was very responsive and was able to work with me on a very short notice. I am super happy with how the photos turned out and would definitely recommend her to anyone!

Julie took our engagement photos for us in the fall. The photos were amazing and Julie was a lot of fun to work with. She came with ideas for us already and she easily worked with the ideas we supplied as well. All-in-all it was a great experience and we can't wait to find another reason to do it.

Oh my God... Where do I begin? Priscilla is hands down the best photographer my husband and I have met. Pri brings so much energy and passion to what she does, that it's contagious. Her customer service from the moment you reach out to when she delivers your images is spot on. She is open to ideas, creativity, and let's you take control of your shoot, if that is what you are into. Dealing with Priscilla is not like dealing with someone you hired to take your pictures, but a friend that just so happens to be taking your pictures. I do not regret a single thing about choosing Pri as our engagement photographer. We are amazed by the results!! We definitely will be recommending her to all our friends and family, and will be using her as our family photographer for years to come. Thanks Pri!

Shoshana is one of the most professional photographers I have worked with. She is simply amazing! I hired her for my daughter's 6-month milestone party photos and I am beyond happy with how the photos came out. She is very creative and has a great eye for detail. She has a very pleasant personality and my daughter was very comfortable with her, too. I highly recommend her!

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!
