The entire experience with Mary was really great from start to finish. She was friendly, professional and most importantly, genuinely passionate about what she was doing. Mary was punctual and she was immediately polite, reassuring and excited. We took plenty of photos at City Hall, while walking to the subway, during the ride and then finally at Central Park with some great fall colours in the background. The pictures came out great and we loved talking to Mary and Ali, who were courteous and professional at all times. Mary was really generous with her pricing and took into account the fact that it was just my wife and I. Unlike a lot of quotes from other photographers, hers was one of the few that really reflected this fact. We highly recommend Mary.

My girlfriend hinted (like beating me over the head with a 2”x4”) that she hoped a photographer would be around to capture our impending proposal. So I did what any 21st century guy would do and hit the internet. I emailed several photographers in the tri-state area, all getting back to me with varying fees and availability. I found Neil Blake on Thumbtack. His personal website showed his experience, so I explained to him that I would like for him to secretly photograph my proposal. I detailed that I had hired a caricaturist (if you’re reading this and also are in the market for a caricaturist, look no further than Jessica du Preez) that would be drawing me on one knee proposing to my girlfriend though we would be sitting next to each other on a park bench. He agreed, and we were set. The big day was a beautiful October Sunday in Hoboken. So perfect, in fact, that there were literally dozens of people taking pictures (with what looked to me like high-end cameras). My girlfriend and I walked around the general area that I had laid out for the caricaturist to set up and for Neil to be ready to find us. I literally had no idea what Neil (or my caricaturist looked like), and so I wasn’t sure if people were taking pictures of us or of the scenery (and it turned out that it was Neil taking a few of those pictures, he really did a wonderful job at being so discreet). Once I found my caricaturist and the drawing was in progress, he would walk by non-chalantly (pretending to be one of these everyday photographers enjoying the beautiful day) and marvel at how well the drawing was coming along and ask my caricaturist if it would be alright if he could take a picture while she sketched and ask us if he could take our picture (of course it was okay! But my girlfriend was still not entirely in the know. It was all for her, and it was perfect. Neil was fantastic. I can’t believe how they went above and beyond to really play the parts that I asked them to play). He walked away and took some other discreetly long-distance shots, shots from behind, everything. You can really tell the entire story from the pictures – leading up to the caricature, during the caricature, after she said yes. And I think that’s more than I could have hoped for when I hired him to be our photographer. After the gig was up, he brought us around for 30 minutes or so posing us against the skyline and taking literally hundreds of pictures. I really feel like I got a lot for my money, and I don’t see how I would do it any differently (and that goes for not only Neil, but also Jessica). I am still blown away by how flawless the day turned out for me and my now fiancée – partly due to the fact that I did not know what Neil (nor my caricaturist, Jessica du Preez, for that matter (whom I also highly recommend, but that is for another review)) looked like, partly because I was hoping for true perfection, and partly due to the stress of getting several pieces (timing, two people (caricaturist and photographer) working together that have never even met, etc) into place without my girlfriend knowing (okay, so she knew it was coming. But she did not know how and what I had planned, so she was still very much in the dark). At the onset of this review, I had hoped that it would be more about the professionalism and expertise of Neil and less about me and the proposal, but let my excitement and joy be a testament to him. For any function at all, consider hiring Neil Blake to capture the story. He will do a superb job.

Maria was amazing to work with! This is my first pregnancy and I wanted to memorialize it with maternity photos. I had posted that I was looking for a photographer and Maria responded quickly and was quick to answer any and all questions. Her responsiveness and professionalism made it an easy decision to make to hire her. Pregnancy has increased my anxiety levels and she was patient with all of my questions along the way as we neared the date of my shoot. I changed location on her several times trying to decide where I wanted it too and she showed up with a smile ready to go. Her guidance and ease while shooting was also much appreciated. Even my husband, who was not keen on doing this, had a great time. Best of all the photos came out so beautiful!! I cannot wait for her to come out for newborn photos. I definitely recommend Maria, the quality of her photography and pricing cannot be beat!

Joe was extremely professional and responsive. I have worked with many photographers before and Joe was definitely the most "on-top-of-it"! Besides being easy to work with, the work product was amazing. Very clear and professional head shots. The subjects of his photos said he made them feel comfortable.

Never had such authentic and beautiful photos taken of me as those taken by Steve. Ended up paying more to order additional photos, I loved them all so much and could not narrow down to just a few favorites. FYI I am 47 & terribly shy and awkward in front of a camera. Steve was extremely professional, patient and persistent and gave me great direction to get the shots. He has an intuitive instinct, high expectations for his work and the greatest integrity. So much so that at first, the pictures weren't "working" according to him, so he retreated and booked a studio where we got our amazing shots. Most photographers would not have spent the extra time, would have just ploughed through. Not Steve. Consider yourself lucky if you can book with Steve. My guess is he won't be available for thumbtack booking for long. THX Steven!! You are amazing!!!

We love Emily. I hired her for a family portrait photo session and she worked well with my toddler and newborn baby. She is very professional and pleasant person, she listened and gave suggestions of how we can have our photos taken. My husband and I were both happy with the photos she delivered after 2 days. We will definitely hire her again for more photo sessions in the future.

Outstanding service! This was the first time I've ever taken professional pictures before and I must say I actually don't mind looking at an image of myself now haha. The quality is outstanding! Tom Castles is very professional photographer. He got me to relax from a very tensed state from when I walked in. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for professional shots.

It was real pleasure to get the images from this company. Hassan is a brilliant photographer and the photos that he took for us in our wedding ceremony came out so vivid and beautiful that I couldn't believe; truly the photos were beyond my expectation. This kind of sincere work and dedication is very rare these days; I honestly recommend this company and Hassan to anyone who are looking for some talented and brilliant photographers for any occasion.

I searched for a photographer online and did my research by looking at reviews as well as the websites of several photographers. I was impressed with Jovana’s photos on her website so I booked her for headshots as well as some dance poses. I’m so glad I did all that because Jovana was an absolute pleasure to work with. So professional and made me feel at ease. The images came beautiful and I have so many great shots to choose from. I couldnt be happier!

I have worked with several photographers in the past but have decided to keep going back to Justin. I have done two photoshoots with Justin and was very pleased with the way both sets of pictures came out. He definitely has a good eye for photography - he sees the big picture but also pays attention to the details. He is also a great guy and easy to work with....flexible and responds quickly. I look forward to working with him again.

My husband and I hired Deva to be our wedding photographer. We couldn’t be happier with how our wedding photos came out. They were gorgeous! She made us look great! My first impression of Deva is friendly, warm, and dependable. Prior to our wedding, Deva spent time visualizing our special day by surveying the place of ceremony, reception venue, plus helping us find charming spots for our wedding portraits. And on the wedding day, in spite of the heat and humidity Deva worked really hard for us. Our guests commented how professional and dedicated Deva was. Deva also shot our beautiful engagement portraits. She went above and beyond to make sure we had a wide variety of poses/backdrops to choose from and that the lighting for each shot was perfect. We had a lot of fun during our engagement photo shoot! All we can say is we loved working with Deva and we love her work!

Michael is a very talented and dedicated photographer. He understands the client's needs and produces quality and wonderful results. He was the photographer for our non for profit organization Gala. He was non-intrusive to our 200+ guests and floated through the crowd taking portraits and action shots. All of which were spot on in telling the story of our event!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Where is the best place to take baby pictures?

Baby pictures are among the most popular types of portrait photography, and most newborn photographers are well versed in the best places to take baby pictures in their local areas. Some newborn photographers will come to the hospital to shoot the baby within a day or two of birth, while others have set up their studios to accommodate the needs of infants. Some parents prefer to have the newborn photographer come to their home or travel to a favorite park or other outdoor location. Like any portrait photography, the best place to take baby pictures is the place you like best and that will yield the types of photos you want of your baby, whether that’s posed and carefully lit studio portraits or spontaneous, casual photos at home. Work with a local newborn photographer to find a safe, calm location with great lighting and some privacy for your family.

How much does baby photography cost?

Portrait photography provides parents with lasting images of the first whirlwind months of a newborn’s life. The cost varies based on several factors, including the length and location of the session, the number of photos provided, and the amount of editing and retouching the photographer does. The national average cost for baby photos is $150-$200. Some baby photographers charge by the number of photos provided, typically ranging from an average of $299 for 20 high-resolution edited photos, to an average of $399 for 35 photos, to $499 for all of the images taken in a single session. Props and location affect the cost, too; an elaborate studio shoot with props and professional lighting may increase the cost to $600-$700 for 20-50 photos. Adding a second location or asking the photographer to travel can add $70-$250 to the cost of the session. Photographers may also charge extra fees for providing additional photos and DVDs, scheduling weekend sessions, and shooting siblings. Expect to pay at least a $50 deposit when you book a portrait photography session.

When should you take newborn photos?

Few styles of portrait photography are as tricky as newborn photos — the unpredictable infant is always in charge! The best way to ensure a successful photo shoot is to work with a local newborn photographer within the first two weeks of the baby’s life. Some photographers even work with hospitals to offer newborn sessions within a day of the baby’s birth. But newborn photographers usually recommend scheduling a shoot during the baby’s first two weeks of life, while the baby is still sleepy and relatively cooperative, especially for posed or studio shots. During this time, babies are easier to swaddle in blankets and dress in hats or headbands, and, because they often nap or nurse, can be staged with various props or be cuddled by their parents. For casual photos, most newborn photographers recommend shooting within the first six weeks of a baby’s life. Lifestyle portrait photography is more flexible and doesn’t require the baby to cooperate with multiple poses or props.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
