When I spoke to Mary she was very flexible in working with what I wanted. In addition, she told me that she worked with a partner so I would be getting two photographers instead of one. At that moment I didn't even have to think twice. Ali and Mary were very professional, and easy to work with. They allowed me to make suggestion on some pictures and made me feel very comfortable. I really enjoyed working with them and would love to work with them again. We were under a short time frame during the photo shoot but Ali and Mary didn't let the pressure get to them. They both kept on shooting as many shots as possible. In the end I had tons of great photos. I would recommend them to anyone looking for good quality pictures for a good price. Thank you so much for capturing my day.

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.

Joe Jenkins is an expert in what he does! He was punctual which was extremely important to me being that my event took place near the WTC and it was very early in the morning. He is very thorough, he followed up my phone calls, text messages and emails promptly. He has a very friendly and warm personality (unlike the typical annoying photographers). His quality work speaks volumes! I received outstanding quality images in a timely manner. He is truly a professional and you can tell he works extremely hard (especially behind the scenes) to provide the best images possible.

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.

Jon was an absolutely wonderful photographer for our Sweet 16 Celebration. Extremely professional throughout the experience, from booking to the final moments of the event. Jon followed up with me from first contact, reached out a few days before to confirm details and asked great questions that helped him understand what exactly we were looking for. Our guests all commented on how he conducted himself during our party, he seemed to know exactly where to be at the right time to capture the moments that meant so much...the toddlers playing together, interactions between the guests, moments of laughter, great shots of the teens dancing, etc. Jon works a little bit differently than most photographers I have dealt with in the past. Typically, I found they focused more on selling post-processing and albums, etc. Jon doesn't take this approach. Instead, he captures the event and sends you all of your photos by Dropbox and/or CD. There isn't any extra fees involved AND, due to the fact that he has an amazing eye for capturing moments, you get amazing photos, straight off the camera. I love this approach, since our guest of honor desired to have photos to post on social media as well as print on her own, and wanted to share them with family who were unable to attend the event, there wasn't anything preventing that...or consequently, costing us $$$ to do this. We own the photos and have complete liberty to share them however, wherever. The savings with this approach is tremendous in comparison to the typical contracts photographers offer, and in today's world of digital media, it provides us the format to have every picture available, and allows us to print off physical photos at any photo kiosk we choose. Quite a few guests from our party have contacted me about Jon and are looking for him to capture their events; I know I will not be needing Thumbtack any longer when I need a photographer in the New Jersey area. I cannot say enough about the positive experience and perfect fit we found with Jon for our photography needs.

Jon recently provided photography services for my mom's recent surprise 60th birthday party. He was wonderful and delightful to work with. From the initial messages of introduction to the time he left the party, Jon was pleasant, helpful and attentive. He captured beautiful family moments that my family and I can cherish forever. Multiple guests at the party commented on how pleasant and professional he was throughout the party. He was constantly on the move, capturing beautiful photos and yet was not obtrusive at all. I will absolutely, without hesitation, ask Jon to photograph future family events & would definitely refer/recommend to anyone looking for a photographer! Thank you very much, Jon!

Jon is a wonderful photographer. We are lucky to have Jon in the family taking pictures of our important family gatherings. We were so appreciative of his pictures of our surprise anniversary party. He captured EVERYTHING from candid pics of our arrival (He truly captured our surprise upon arriving and the warm welcome we received from all.), candid pics of the goings-on during the party (both inside the house and in the backyard), and many posed/candid photos also. There wasn't much he missed! He never sat down, not wanting to miss anything with his camera.The other thing I have to say, is that he's a really nice guy . Carol Gross

Maria was beyond a pleasure to work with! She is a seasoned photographer with years of professional experience as well as top of the line equipment and resources. Maria made me feel super comfortable and took her time to walk me through all aspects of the shoot explicitly which made the whole experience an amazing one. I have worked with many photographers for various reasons, and Maria is hands down one of my favorites. I would recommend her services to any and anyone looking to get professional photos taken for any occasion!

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!!!

Steven did an amazing job! You can tell that he's very dedicated to his work. Our first phone conversation he said "if you don't look good and I don't look good" and I've never heard a photographer say that. Most of the photographers that I've met are doing their job for the money, but I can't say the same about Steven. He spoke about has craft with passion. He made me feel so comfortable, and he knows exactly what he's doing. If anyone is looking for a photographer who specializes in headshots, reach out to Steven immediately, you will not be disappointed. Thank you so much Steven!! I'll definitely be recommending you to all my fellow actors.

Lizzie was great for our daughter's 1st birthday. She was on time, even stayed a little extra and goes over the top with responsiveness and feedback. There are a lot of amateur photographers competing for your business, I found Lizzie goes over the top for her clients and delivers some incredible shots. Pose, natural, journalistic, all types were covered in her photos. Would recommend and use again in the future.

Tom Castles is an top-notch photographer - there is no doubt - but the real beauty in working with Tom is that he has this amazing personality to supplement his skill. He has the ability to bring out your best self and make you radiate from inside-out in all your shots. Working with Tom was a truly great experience and I encourage everyone interested in photography/modeling to make sure you cross paths with him at some point. He is outstanding.

We made photo shoots all over the world(Italy,Russia,Greece, another words, Europe and USA)but such a wonderful experience we had the first time. Marija made us feel so comfortable, the most Important- she made our baby smile, who was crying and did not have mood to make pictures Marija was so fast so accurate, we even did not feel her existence in a room! She shooted non stop all the time, brilliant job. Besies, my husband who hates doing photo shoots complimented Mariachi's work, first time ever he liked it. She was extremely nice, very reliable, and gave us the pictures the next day! I never met such a "dream photographer" in my life! Amazing wonderful and only positive experience. Marija thank you so much for such an awesome experience, you are the best!

We hired Marijana to take photos of our wedding ceremony at the NYC City Hall. She was a true pleasure to work with - very patient throughout the entire (lengthy) process, and even willing to cross the Brooklyn Bridge for some post-wedding shots with the NY skyline. Marijana doesn't have years of professional training or experience, but she has a good eye and you can tell she's very passionate about her work and relationships with her clients. To me, that is really the difference between Marijana and other photographers!

Tina and I had a 90-minute headshot session at the International Center of Photogrsphy in midtown Manhattan. I asked Tina to engage a makeup artist to prepare me for the shoot; while I think she did a good job, she could not stay for the shoot itself. The last two photographers with whom I have worked had theirs stay for the duration, and it was helpful to have the makeup rechecked and touched up - especially for a woman my age. I think Tina is a really good photographer - and an artist in her own right. But sometimes her focus on expression and composition means that she doesn’t always see the details of her subject. There were numerous shots that she selected for my review that I couldn't use because a stray lock of hair was falling into my eye. I am not the one looking through the lens, and I can't see what the photographer does. One word, and I could easily have fixed it. We also spent the majority of the session with me wearing the same blouse - even though we had selected 2 additional wardrobe changes. As a result, the number of usable photos in those two changes was somewhat limited. We did come up with a number of really good headshots; Tina retouched my favorites herself, and I am having two of them reproduced as I write this. I appreciated the energy and encouragement that Tina brought to her work, and I would recommend her work to my fellow actors.

Chris is a wonderful, professional photographer and takes amazing headshots! He really understands the mechanics of how to get the person's personality to shine through the photograph. During my sessions with him he has always been very friendly, understanding and accommodating. He likes to get your input and opinion on a few shots and knows how to draw out the best side of you and your personality in a photograph. He's a lot of fun to work with and very easy going (plays some really cool tunes during the sessions and is always up for suggestions). I highly recommend getting your picture taken by him and working with him.

Chris was by far the most efficient photographer I got a chance to work with. He was punctual ( I was few minutes late). He arrived, took over the space, new exactly how to take photos and work the space and furniture to make sure we got the best and most flattering shots for the place. Very professional, quick and kind. The shoot was wrapped up quickly. He delivered the photos the same evening and they were perfectly edited and ready to use. No re-editing requests needed. I highly recommend him and will definitely reach out for future shoots. Thank you Chris!

Spike took our Engagement photos in Central Park last week, and the experience couldn’t be any better! We originally had a different date and plan in mind. But Spike was flexible and accommodated the changes in our plan. During the day of the shoot, Spike made us very relaxed. We felt at ease with his presence. He gave us directions on poses, but made sure we were comfortable with them. Spike also knows the park well, taking us to a number of his favorite locations. He was also open to our suggestions on shooting locations. We received the photos within a week of our shoot. My fiancée and I are very happy with them. They look amazing and I’m sure the photos will be our treasured memories in the years to come. One last note, we’ve reached out to a number of photographers, both on Thumbtack and elsewhere. Spike’s rate was very reasonable, especially more so now that we’ve received the photos and gone through the experience. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend Spike for your photo needs!

I found Spike Li via Thumbtack and WOW am I happy I did! My wedding date (and location) changed a few times and Spike remained flexible throughout it all. When the date and location was finally finalized, he gave helpful advice about how long things would take at X location, where to meet, and the like. I'm incredibly awkward in front of the camera and Spike made my now husband and I feel super comfortable. He had us laughing through it all. He was extremely accommodating and flexible and a pleasure to work with! Spike was right in my budget (I was having a City Hall wedding) and again, I can't say how happy I am that I found him. Turnaround on the pictures was INCREDIBLY fast (I honestly didn't expect it so fast, but it works out: just in time for Mothers Day!). Thank you so much Spike!

Spike was excellent. We wanted to do our annual photo shoot in Central Park in the snow so when it was snowing last Saturday, we looked for a photographer who would be available for a photo shoot on Sunday. Spike promptly responded to our request and so diligently took our photos on a very cold day out in the snow. We could tell he was working very hard to find the right places and angles for us throughout our two-hour session with him and the photos turned out great! We are so glad we hired him and we would recommend him to anyone looking for quality photos.

I find myself very thankful and grateful for ending up choosing Mark as my photographer for my son's first birthday party. A decent photographer can be hard to find for a mom like me. But Mark was beyond decent and was able to give me the most amazing shots of my son's big day and somehow took the best party pics with 20 wild sugared-up little kids as guests. So many of the other parents asked me for copies of photos of their kids and I will definitely be giving them Mark's number!

While other photographers might keep shooting and rush a bit, Laura slowed everthing down until the shot was perfect; lighting, position, vibe, etc. I felt in excellent hands with Laura. I really relaxed, which is key in regard to getting good shots that look like me. She made me feel that her goal was to make me comfortable in order to get the best shots possible! She is a sweetheart. She’s been great at doing light retouching. Nothing drastic. My agents are thrilled, and so am I. I will definitely go back to Laura!!!
