I have worked with Mark on 2 separate ocassions. Once when he took action shots for the Chelsea Varsity Hockey team 2 years ago and again recently to have my daughters senior pictures taken. Both cases I was extremely happy. Almost too happy as it is almost impossible to choose which pictures we want to order. Thankfully, we are not restricted to a certain amount of posses like you are with some photographers. You order the posses and sizes you want. We saw some of the digital pictures the very next day, the balance of the shots within the week. Turnaround is very fast. He is very professional and open to new ideas. I will definately use his services again.

I engaged Mark for production photography and the pictures came out exactly how I wanted them to be displayed online. He understood from the get-go what type of pictures I wanted and he delivered. What I really appreciated was the professionalism he displayed and how he went out of his way to make sure the photos were not just "fine" but great. I highly recommend him as I will be using him again for sure.

Upon viewing Mark Bogarin's photos of other photo shoots from his website, and reading reviews of his photography studio, I ultimately went with Mark. Mark is both affable and professional... and apparently a highly experienced one at that. I can say I'm more than pleased with the results of my photos. I highly recommend him. After a photo shoot with Mark, I think you will too.

Lisa Freeman and her husband, John, did a stellar and amazing job at photographing our wedding on 9/20/14. We have hundreds of amazing pics with dozens of different poses to commemorate our special day. We will never use anyone but Lisa again for our family portraits or other photography needs!

Alisha was hired to photograph our wedding in September and from start to finish, her professionalism and quality of service was outstanding. We spent hours searching for the right photographer and each and every time, Alisha came out on top. Not only are her prices very reasonable, but she she was genuinely interested in photographing our big day. You could see the passion and excitement and how she was really enjoying the experience as much as we were. From our initial meet to the big day, Alisha was enthusiastic and flexible, ensuring she delivered exactly what we wanted and she felt much more like a friend then the corporate feel we had received from other vendors. The end product was outstanding, with dozens and dozens of amazing photos that we will cherish forever. We couldn't have asked for a better photographer, thank you so much Alisha.

Patrick went above and beyond as our wedding photographer! He was timely and professional, and was willing to stay overtime to ensure that he captured our entire wedding festivities. He took direction well, but also had plenty of his own suggestions as far as posing and helping with family/friend portraits. He was also very friendly and had an amazing personality. He definitely made our wedding day memorable and we received many comments from our guests about how fun he is. After the wedding day, he provided professional quality photos in a timely manner. Upon our request, he also did some time-consuming editing on quite a few photos for no extra charge. We also ordered the signature photobook which we were pleased with and again Patrick went above and beyond by being very flexible and making all requested changes. We are awaiting prints (at a great price!) which we expect will also be lovely. I highly recommend Patrick as a wedding photographer! He will capture all of the posed and candid moments from your big day at a very reasonable price. He will work and communicate with you to provide exactly what you are looking for even after the wedding.

I am beyond pleased with Michael Andaloro's work, I've worked with other photographers for senior pics and he is hands down the best I've worked with, it was about 40 degrees and wet and this man literally got down on the ground and got wet and dirty to make sure he got a great shot. He was so nice and respectful and really listened to what our vision was. The photos are wonderful and really I just can't say enough about our experience. I highly recommend working with him and we definitely will again.

Michael was brought in to take shots at our state convention. We gave him little if any direction on what we expected, and as it turned out his portrait photos became the highlights on our national campaign literature. He understood what we needed better than we did ourselves. Good job, Michael.

Erin was hired to shoot photographs for my wedding. She did an EXCELLENT job and was very professional. She had a great attitude and made the guests feel comfortable. Her attire was professional and she arrived ahead of schedule, which I really appreciated. She took tons of photographs throughout the evening and the final edited prints were stunning. I received the prints in a very timely manner and was even surprised by some of the unexpected moments she was able to capture. I was so impressed by Erin that I recently hired her again to shoot newborn photos of my son. She was very patient with my little one and I love the way the photos turned out. Again during this shoot, she was professional, kind, and prepared. I would recommend Erin to anyone looking for a photographer who has a great attitude and a lot of talent. Thanks Erin!

Erin is a wonderful photographer! She has a great sense of people, artistic eye, and captures just the right moments of you. I had such a fun time working with Erin. I always feel awkward when I know I'm in front of the camera but Erin makes you feel comfortable. She provides clear direction for people like me who aren't so photogenic, but manages to capture the natural, candid look in every photograph. Erin is great to work with and I highly recommend her!

Kolien did everything wonderful, she brought a second person to get some video from to different places, without charging us. Kolien had to deal with the photographer who was less than professional. My daughter and son in law received their DVDs in no time. I would recommend Kolien to anyone that is getting married. We are so glad that we found her to do our daughters wedding.

I've done quite a couple photo shoots with zach, and I'm absolutely inspired by his vision. He's an effortlessly original photographer who endlessly strives to do something different with each lens shutter. He truly treats photography like an art, and is always thoughtful and considerate when working with his models. Zach's work is evolving, and captivating, and never fails to push the limits of his creative edge. I am beyond pleased with how all of my photos have turned out. Highly recommend doing a shoot with zach. His professionalism, and kind hearted personality will bring you a unique perspective to the beauty that exists in this world. I look forward to more shoots in the future!

Our entire experience with Lydia was AMAZING! My husband and children are not fans of taking family photos and are typically grouches during family photo sessions. That typically leaves me stressed because my husband won’t smile and my kids can’t settle down. Lydia’s organic photography style made it a great experience for my entire family. My husband was very laid back and relaxed throughout the entire experience which offered authentic smiles from him that I rarely capture on camera myself. My children’s smiles were not forced and Lydia was able to capture their joy and personalities in the purest form. In addition to my family enjoying the experience, Lydia’s skills as a photographer are exceptional! There was not a single photo that we were not happy with. She doesn’t conform to current fads so I was excited while scrolling through our completed photos because I felt as if each photo I viewed was uniquely ours. Thank you so much Lydia! You’re awesome!

In summary, if you're thinking to hire Lydia, go ahead and do so now. On to more details... I was looking for a local professional photographer to capture engagement pictures. From the start, Lydia was very responsive with all communications and she offered a competitive and affordable quote. She was very friendly and professional. I planned a surprise encounter for my fiancee with Lydia and she was already there when we arrived and we got wonderful stealthily taken pictures. After this, we took more formal shots. We felt very comfortable with her simple directions, and she even looked for suitable areas nearby to take these pictures. Her final edits were very natural, breath-taking and professional, that she delivered in a very timely manner. My fiancee and I could not be happier. Thanks Lydia!

Chuck was great, he came out to our home on such short notice and was so patient. We have 2 boys and they were rambunctious, Chuck got them to play and have a great time. As a result we had some amazing shots. If you want a photographer that will come to your home and give you an easy going experience for a family photo shoot, you should pick Chuck. We found him on Thumbtack and are very happy with our choice. He has reasonable prices and we got to keep all 121 shots. Can't say enough good things about our first family photo experience. Thanks Chuck!!!!
