Engagement Photography

My (now) fiance and I loved working with him! He is creative, flexible, and professional - a combination of traits not many photographers have. I highly recommend!

Engagement Photography

I can’t say enough about the wonderful experience we had working with Elijah for my nephew’s surprise beach proposal last night. From the time I submitted an inquiry on Thumbtack to the moments before for the proposal, Elijah was quick to respond and willing to accommodate any requests we made. The proposal involved three separate locations (and a boat!) and Elijah just rolled with all of it. I even sent him to the wrong address for one shoot (accidentally!) and when we realized it, he quickly moved it to the correct spot in time for the next group of photos. He stayed calm and assured us everything was fine. His chill vibe was so helpful and his photography skills are top notch! The photos are gorgeous! I am an event planner in the industry and I know a good vendor when I see one. I would not hesitate to use Elijah again if I needed a photographer in the New Jersey area. Do not hesitate to hire him! You will be glad you did!

Elijah was a true professional with a great eye. He was very punctual and responsive. I don’t think a single one of my questions went unanswered for more than 10-15 minutes. Would highly recommend and the photos he took will last a lifetime.

I hired raw but meaningful for two separate photo shoots and I was exceedingly surprised at how helpful and responsive he was to the needs of getting to job do. He was professional and understanding with each situation. I will definitely hire him for my next project. He is very dependable.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My base prices do not include travel, so you best believe if you're outside my radius you will be charged with travel fees.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    When working with new clients I always start with a friendly conversation. Asking questions about themselves so I can better know and understand the person. Showing some personality as we go and this makes them feel more comfortable with me, which in turn makes the session a lot more enjoyable.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    When I first started I shadowed an already established photographer in my area for a few months until I decided to get my own equipment and start my own thing. Two years after building my portfolio, I was blessed enough to work at Ocean Resort Casino as their Photographer Club Operator for their nightclub, HQ2, for about a year and at Ovation Hall shooting all the events taken place there - including all the meet and greets for the famous people that came to perform. Since 2018 I've been contracted by multiple companies for work. Starshield Entertainment Group shooting for different types of events every week (weddings, family reunions, ceremonies, etc). Mino Pro Media Group shooting commercial food photography for clients like Uber Eats, Slice, and Grub Hub. I shoot for Orions Photo Group doing weddings every month.
