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.

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.

Winstead is a multi-talented artist on many platforms that I've had the pleasure of witnessing. Winstead was the hair/makeup artist on set of my first photoshoot in VA, and more recently, he directed and produced my first video interview! His talents know no boundaries, and he's nothing short of a pleasure to work with. Winstead is a true professionsal.

I am extremely satisfied with my portrait photos taken at Monumental Arts by K. Since I hadn't had a professional photo in awhile the process and options were well explained. There was no rush which allowed for a relaxed session. When I asked, great suggestions were given on my accessory choices. Besides taking great photos, providing numerous pose and background options Monumental Arts provided outstanding customer service. They responded immediately to my emails and texts. The online review and purchase process is so easy. BIG THANKS to ace photographer K, who later quickly helped on a rush order.

I have been impressed every time I use Tamarack Images. Adept at capturing the spirit and emotion of the event, Tamarack provides beautiful candids and authentic but flattering portraits. I have used them for events serving anywhere from 40 to 600 participants. The service in unobtrusive but provides thoughtful glimpses into the personal moments of the event and its participants. When doing portraits for business websites, he has a way of making people feel comfortable in front of the camera. Great experience overall! Highly recommend.

Chris works for Living on the Lawn magazine. A private resident community magazine that I am the publisher for. Each month I ask Chris to capture our feature family and his portrait work is as good as it gets. As publisher I trust him to deliver to me every month a series of images of our feature family. One image of the family goes on the cover and his other images fill out the remainder of the feature. He is great with the families. I love his work, but better yet the families love his work and enjoy working with him.

Robert was a great wedding photographer for us. I phone interviewed him, had an in-person interview, and heard from 2 of his references about 10 months before our wedding. In the lead-up, he actually reached out to ME, reminding ME that I wanted to touch base with my list of photos, preferences, wedding day details, etc., so that tells me he was on the ball. Once I had the photo list, preferences, etc. documented, he set up a phone call about a week or 2 before the wedding, and we stepped through the timeline, and he advised me how to order the shots, how to make sure family photos go as smoothly as possible, etc. We added one hour to the contract, and the contract change was a breeze. On the wedding day, he was on time and ready to go for our first look. I was an antzy bride, so he dealt with the, "What time is it?" question a lot and didn't seem to mind. (Actually, I was honest about not being crazy about posed pictures to begin with, and he didn't seem offended.) He breezed us through family portraits before the ceremony and then the big family portraits during cocktail hour. I actually had 30 minutes of my cocktail hour thanks to him. I know he was *there,* but I totally didn't notice him during the ceremony or reception. He gave us a heads up when his time was up and thanked us for our business. Per our contract, he delivered preview pictures the next business day--only he provided 14--4 more than contractually obligated. And again, within contract deadlines, he delivered the entire set of photos 5 weeks and 1 day after the wedding. Then we received the CD with the images about 6–7 weeks after the wedding. Out of the 800ish photos he took, I find about 175 to be good candidates for an album. He got great photos and followed my preferences. Very happy with Robert and the photos.

Josh was amazing to work with. He’s very professional. His very detailed work spoke volumes to me which is what made me reach out. We had a phone call prior to the family portrait session where he explained the process to me and I shared my concerns about the space limitations. He was very reassuring and on the day of, we did a walk through of the space and he told me what he thought would work well and why. The photos came back fast and were perfect! He’s a true artist. Would definitely hire him again!

I had professional headshots and food photos done back in November, and they both came out amazing. The food shots were for my new vegan blog and I strongly believe my high traffic is related to the photos on my page. The Appointment started on time and within 15 minutes I had a bunch of options that I felt comfortable choosing from right then, but he continued shooting for the entire 30 minutes as originally planned. I received an email that night about 8 hours later with a link to my photo gallery where I had the option to choose digital copies or prints mailed out to me. I went with both and I'm so glad I did. Overall I'd definitely recommend him for personal, professional and/or media-related photography.

There really isn't enough time, or just the right words to describe the unbelievable experience we had working with Jamaal McKenzie. So, if you want the Reader's Digest version of this review, here it is: stop everything that you are doing, call him immediately and do whatever you can to book him. But seriously. From the start, Jamaal was constantly and unwaveringly professional, responsive, and helpful. He responded almost immediately to any email or question I had. He made himself available to talk via phone or skype, which was especially important to us because we were planning our wedding from afar. And he provided us with detailed information about the entire process right up front. Beyond all of those things, however, Jamaal demonstrated a real genuine earnestness to do good work for us. Right away, it was clear to me that Jamaal was an artist who truly cares about his work, rather than just someone who photographs weddings to make money. This was really demonstrated by his approach to shooting weddings: he attended our rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, pre-wedding getting ready, the ceremony, and almost the entire reception all for a price that I found to be extremely reasonable. Working with Jamaal the day before and the day of the wedding was also a wonderful experience. He was unobtrusive, but also checked in with me and my husband when appropriate. He was extremely organized and prepared for many different shots and scenarios. And was entirely a calming energy that helped me relax and not worry if the pictures would turn out great. Needless to say, the final products are simply stunning. He captured every single image that we requested, and used his artistry to create images that we couldn't have imagined ourselves, but that will hang on our walls for generations. Other people have said in their reviews of Jamaal that booking him was the single best decision they made in the entire wedding process, and I simply couldn't agree more.

We engaged Mr. Cassatt to take portraits of our staff for our website and other promotional materials. We found him incredibly responsive, affordable and professional. His work product was top-notch and we were very pleased with the result. Our whole firm was pleased with his efforts. I would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone needing a professional photographer.

My husband and I couldn't of asked for a better photographer to work with! She was on time and went out of her way on our special day. She took whatever pictures we wanted and through all the confusion never once complained or seemed like she didn't want to be there. She's excellent to work with as a bride she also helped with other various tasks that were not even asked for her to do. Amazing personality she got along with everyone and is great with kids too!!

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.

Wanted to have some update family portraits, and with our child being only 3 months old, its always hard to get out of the house to make an appt and still have our daughter smiling for the pictures, so we tried looking for a photographer to come to us for a change, and found Mark on thumbtack. Glad we did, such a relief having him come to our house where our daughter could play and be comfortable, and he did a great job entertaining her for great pictures. Will look to call him again when we are ready for new updated pictures or seasons. Highly recommend!

Pri was great. She was easy to communicate with and quickly answered all of my questions as we planned our photo shoot. When the weather that day was terrible, she was able to reschedule so we got pretty weather. On the day of the shoot, she was friendly and professional. I could tell she was used to kids and babies because she made all kinds of goofy sounds to get my son to smile in the pictures. I'm really happy with the beautiful family portraits and will definitely book Pri again in the future.

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.

Rachel is a real pro - if you are looking for beautiful, real, crisp, clear portraits, engagement and wedding photos, family photos - anything - look no further. Rachel instantly made me feel at ease in front of the camera and knew exactly how to guide my fiance and I to capture authentic and natural photos. She is brilliant at using natural light, too. We could not be happier!

We had an exceptional experience with Little Palm! We are so happy with the photos Talah took and our experience working with her. I was worried that it would be difficult to capture our son smiling (since he's a tween and was not enthusiastic about getting family pictures taken), but Talah worked hard to develop a good rapport with him and got some fantastic shots that captured his true personality and many shots of him with a bright smile. If you are looking for someone who will take a mix of traditional and artistic shots and has an outstanding eye for photo composition, look no further. We looked at several photographers before settling on Little Palm, and we are so happy with our decision! Take a look at her pictures compared to others, and there is no comparison.

Brian has taken my graduation photos and outpoor portraits and I loved both. He has a great eye for framing the photo with nature, makes sure to take candids, and was really open to changing his style based on what I wanted! He was willing to touch up some photos and gave me access to all shots, there wasn’t a hard limit. Highly recommend.
