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!
Winstead communicated with me from the time I booked him to the time he did my makeup. He is very professional and courteous. He arrived early with all his tools and did an excellent job with my face (bridal makeup), and also did makeup for my mom-in-law and sis-in-law. I looked gorgeous in all my wedding photos and my skin looked radiant in the sunshine (it was an outdoor wedding). I asked for lightweight and natural-looking makeup and that's what I got. I'd definitely hire him again! You won't go wrong if you hire Winstead for your makeup needs!
We couldn't be more pleased with Monumental Arts. We had a very unconventional wedding, but the photographer adapted easily and came up with some great shots. He was professional and considerate and the photos we got were fabulous. We would definitely recommend them.
We could not have hoped for a better photo booth for our end of the year 6th grade party!! Thank you so much to Daniel and the entire Party Favor staff!! Definitely recommend & would book again!!
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!
Chris is most professional and creative. His work is outstanding, excellent and unique. He did my daughter's senior portraits outdoors and included candid shots that are my favorite even now 4 years later. He then took photos of my children outside in beautiful historic scenery. I also have his photo of a lighthouse hanging in my living room. My daughter and fiancé have now hired him to take their wedding photos. It will be a day to remember and I know we can trust Chris to bring those memories to life in pictures. He is 'c'est magnifique!' Chris you are just the best out there!
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
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 67 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.
Katya and her helper were very courteous and very professional as they photographed our wedding. She showed up on time and they took many pictures of both the ceremony and the reception after. Many of those photos were absolutely stunning, and we didn't regret one dollar we spent on her services to photograph our wedding.
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.
One of the best Photographers the DMV has to offer! We actually came across Jamaal while he was covering my Soror's Wedding in Baltimore this past year! We had been looking for a photographer for the longest time and we were farmiliar with is work, but watching him while he worked is what sealed the deal for us. He floated around the room effortlessly leaving so many smiling faces in his wake, including ours. We didn't even need to see the final photographs, we were already sold(The Photographs were pretty darn awesome too!). We immediately reached out to Jamaal to schedule our engagement shoot and he didn't disappoint! My partner and I were brought to tears by the images. His turnaround is unmatched! (1-2 days). If you're on the fence about booking Jamaal, consider this the push that gets you over the fence. Book him. Now! You will not regret it, we didn't! Not one bit!
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.
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.
We had a last minute emergency and needed a photographer for our biggest corporate event of the year. We reached out to a ton of photographers but couldn't find one. We put a request out out on Thumbtack the day before the event and when we came across Andrew's quote, we knew right away he was the best option! He arrived early, was very professional, took GREAT photos, had a great turn around with delivery, was very fast in replying to emails and any questions we had, the edited pictures looked awesome. The whole night everyone was raving about how great of a photographer he was. He has high energy and is super fun and friendly. I would suggest Andrew for any event you have!
I can't express how happy I am that I decided to go with Maria as our wedding photographer. She and I were able to coordinate prior to the wedding in regards to location and time. She made sure to ask about which parts of the ceremony and day were important to us and captured all the nuance beautifully. On the day of she arrived early and proved to be very flexible. Working with her was fun. Yes, fun! And what was also enjoyable was that she appeared to have as much fun doing her job as the guests were having at the wedding! The pictures themselves came out great and there are so many! She delivers them digitally which in this day and age makes perfect sense and she made them available exactly when she promised she would. I would highly recommend hiring Maria for your wedding. Thank you, Maria! Ben & Pam Zwebner
We hired Kelly to be our photographer at our wedding. We hired her because of the quality of work we saw in her portfolio and because of how excellent she was to work with. She is fast to respond, extremely knowledgable, and (most importantly) one of the best photographers around. Our pictures came out exactly how we wanted them. She took beautiful shots that captured everything from the scenery to the special moments of us saying I do. She was very comfortable to work with and knew exactly what we wanted. Before our shoot, we had a Skype call and she went over our questions and helped us find what we wanted for our shoot. I have only fantastic things to say about Kelly. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing a great photographer.
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!
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!
Jeff was simply amazing. He's extremely personable and felt like an extension of our family at our intimate wedding ceremony. As promised, he gave us a beautiful sneak peak of our photos the night of our wedding and we can't wait to see the rest! Thank you Jeff for everything you did for us on our big day. We appreciate you more than we can say!
My wedding pictures came out beautifully and he was very professional and patient with all the crazy brides maid that were in my wedding party. Five stars for KJB photography!!!!
