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!
Party Favor Photo was so much fun to have at our wedding reception! They were punctual and set everything up with no issues at all. They were completely professional and very easy to communicate with in the days leading up to our wedding, and they had all of our digital photos available for viewing the day after the event, which was faster than I expected! Our guests loved having both the photobooth prints and the digital versions available for viewing, and the pictures turned out really well. One thing I appreciated beyond words is that the photobooth attendant flagged my husband and I down at the end of the night, right after our send-off, and told us that we should do a quick shoot in the photobooth since we hadn't had a chance to do so over the course of the very busy and hectic night. That was so sweet and thoughtful, and we both appreciated her thinking of that for us. I had no complaints and wouldn't hesitate to use them again, or recommend them!
Greg was a wonderful photographer for my wedding reception. Not only was he on time, professional and responsive in the time leading up to the event, but the photos I received at the end of the project were top notch and EXACTLY what I had hoped for. He captured many moments I wouldn't have otherwise had. I'd absolutely recommend him for any event and would gladly hire him again.
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
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!
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!
DIM productions filmed and photographed a wedding weekend welcome reception for myself and to-be bride. They were very responsive and professional through the process.
Elmo is exceptional at capturing unique, special and genuine candid moments. He patiently worked with us on our outdoor wedding day on an extremely chilly and windy day. We needed pictures taken in a few settings that involved tricky lighting, included two kids and some were taken in our apartment which is very small. All of our wedding pictures turned out so incredible and are exactly as we would have liked--not super staged and stiff but instead reflected our personalities and the love we share for one another. Elmo went way above and beyond what we even imagined and we are so thrilled with our wedding photos. Elmo also has such a calm demeanor and I would imagine for bigger groups, he would be so skilled at getting people to work together to get the perfect pictures.
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.
Beginning with responsiveness, Jake’s replies were quick and concise, answering all questions and leaving me with a very high level of confidence. The display of professionalism is highly noteworthy for punctuality and enthusiasm, particularly in setting up and explaining processes and plans of execution. The end result was far greater than anticipated because the images – produced in a dark setting of dim lights, black walls, and floors – were truly "professional grade." In sum, I highly recommend Two Jakes Photography. I have made them my "go to" photographers for all future events. They were masterful at capturing a night filled with magical moments.
I'm so happy I picked Naomi as my wedding photographer. From our first conversation, to her thorough planning questionnaire, to the coverage of the wedding and finally to her follow up on the photos. She was helpful, thoughtful and organized. She and her assistant shooter got great shots and placed themselves strategically at the wedding to get amazing candid shots. I would definitely recommend her to anyone planning their wedding.
Jeff is doing a pre-wedding photo-shoot for us and he has been fantastic! He is great at what he does..highly recommended!
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.
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.
Metin of picaboost photography was my first Thumbtack experience and he was great! He was very flexible with timing and reasonable priced. Most importantly, he took very nice, usable real estate photos for me. I plan on using him again!
Tony was professional and explained the contract, set up, and process in full detail. We had to reschedule the shoot at the last minute and he was understanding. If you need a professional photographer, I highly recommend Tony.
Lizzy captured our wedding beautifully, taking spontaneous pictures that made possible to live that special moment again. She is very sweet, which makes her presence light and enjoyable, professional, and flexible to last minute changes. I am very happy with the results.
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!
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!
Victoria and her partner are very helpful and amazing photographers! They were on time for our occasion, and she helped us reserve a place to take the pictures. They were very relaxed and professional during the day, always respecting our perspective. And the photos were also amazing, I think what she offers is a great price-performance quality. Thanks Victoria again :)
I seriously could not have asked for a better photographer. Cameron and his team were punctual, friendly, understanding of the pressures of the day and captured everything we wanted to express in our wedding photos and more! There is a reason he's so well reviewed and popular. Hands down the nicest guy to work with throughout our entire wedding planning process. Don't settle. Cameron is the BEST!
