Tina has been great to work with! She is professional, friendly, and gets the job done quickly. We have done head shots with her as well as family photos. I couldn't be happier!
My resident holiday party was an absolute success! The residents really enjoyed their keepsake photo's of their family and friends. It was an Ugly Sweater themed party which made it even more memorable! Josh was our Photo Booth Operator and he was super professional and very accommodating to all of our guests. He showed up on time and was incredibly engaging with every guest! Thank you so much and we will for sure reach out to use Party Favor Photo again and again and again!
Greg shot photos of an outdoor corporate event and ribbon cutting ceremony. He's a true pro and delivered beautiful photos. I definitely recommend.
Josh is an amazing photographer. Not only is his work exceptional but he is kind, courteous, is more then willing to work with your schedule and extremely flexible. It’s my second time having him as our family photographer and i will continue to use him!!
THIS IS THE PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE DECADE! I come from a huge family and I have been to a lot of weddings and also worked with a lot of photographers in the past. Gabe by far has been the absolute best of the best! He was prompt, he was professional, and he was witty and charismatic all at the same time. Even when photos weren't being taken, he had us all smiling ear to ear. By the end of the night I had a few family members asking for his business card! Loved loved loved him!
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!
Robert Mang was very helpful throughout the planning process for photos of our 50th anniversary party - timing, locations, suggestions. He arrived at our home so we could catch the last light of the day for outdoor family photos and took many different groups and arrays plus some candids. He then followed us to the restaurant and took photos of our guests as they arrived and some candids. We expect to see the finished photos within a week or two, but expect they will be great based on his website photos. Robert's pricing was within the range that we had specified to Thumbtack. Thank you, Robert!
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
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.

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.
Naomi is an excellent photographer who is easily attuned to the desires of her client. She is flexible, reasonable and easy to work with. The photographers are of high quality and captured the most significant moments. We would use Naomi again.
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!
He is an amazing photographer I do not regret hiring him. We have even decide to make him our family photographer. We loved his service God bless him
We were traveling to San Diego to visit extended family when I thought it would be fun to get an outdoor family photo. Kelly contacted me immediately and was able to accommodate us on short notice. She was very professional and patient when our family photo turned into a multi family group photo. Thanks Kelly, the photos are beautiful!
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.
I was in need of a "head shot" with a time frame of less than a week. Dawn was quick to respond and spring into action to help me accomplish the task. She was easy to work with and made me feel very comfortable during the photo session...something that I not experienced in the past! I was looking for more of a casual outdoor shot and her photos and follow up "touching up" services were perfect. Dawn is a very talented photographer and I would 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!
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 :)
Mr Jones has an uncanny knack of capturing the star quality in All of his photographic subjects and scenes! He is able to shed more life, joy and dignity, wherever his lens takes him. He is our official family photographer, for all times......
