Mary and her partner took excellent photographs, and for the price, it was truly an exceptional value! Some of the photos were truly artistic. I feel I need to put it some constructive criticism for shooting a religious wedding. First let me reiterate how incredibly NICE Mary and her partner were! However, she stood in the aisle at the front of the Church for nearly the entire duration and it was highly inappropriate for a Catholic wedding. Even though Mary and her partner were professional photographers who gave us a terrific product, it was commented on by many at the service, including the priest how disruptive it was to wear such casual clothing, and to stand near the alter even when not taking photos. Mary and her partner have TREMENDOUS TALENT, and are extremely nice, but you must instruct them on proper protocol at a Church wedding, and how a Catholic wedding is a reverential event, and they must not stand in the aisle for the duration, nor take photos so close to the priest when he is saying prayers. Although I remember none of it, of course, I watched a video, and yes, it was intrusive. But they are GREAT photographers & of course they will learn about religious weddings going forward. Highly recommend! Will use them again!

I hired Joe to take headshots and images of myself that I needed for my own company website. From the start and throughout the organizational aspect of getting this arranged and letting him know what I was looking for (in terms of images) he was uber professional and responsive. He responded to all my questions and offered professional advice. On the day he was on time, efficient and a pleasure to work with. The whole thing took much less time than I anticipated and the end result was fabulous. All the pictures are fantastic. In my experience I don't usually like all the end products but in the case of Joe there is nothing I could fault. His turnaround time from taking the pictures to getting them complete to me was very, very quick too. Just wish I had known Joe earlier and that this should be the experience when paying for a professional photographer! Will be using him again in the future for my needs.

If you are looking for an incredible photographer then look no further. I am absolutely thrilled to give John a wonderful review because he did such an amazing job at our party. He came on time, explained the whole process, stayed out of the way and caught the most amazing moments I've ever seen. He did everything from poses to journalistic style photos capturing the essence of the party. He's truly an excellent professional and photographer. Thank you John, we will make sure to use you again in the future!!!

Stop wasting your time looking for other photographers—Lizzie is your girl! She produced incredible photos (much more than we were expecting), had a great location recommendation, and she was just generally a pleasure to work with. I couldn’t recommend her more and I personally can’t wait for my next excuse to hire her again!

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.

I had a wonderful experience with professional photographer Hassan who is also an expert in make up and hairstyle at Digital Merit Photography LLC. I would highly recommend their studio to everyone. Every single shot has the best angle, lighting and posture.

Amazing photographers. We had Roge and Fernando cover our rehearsal dinner, and the entire wedding day. We received the wow photos the day after the wedding, and they look amazing!

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!

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!

To have Mark as my photographer was a very satisfiying experience. Anywhere from his punctuality to his professionalism, he truly couldn’t have made me more pleased. My final photos came out better than imagined and exceeded all expectations. I wish my iPhone took photos like that, but I understand now the quality a “good photo” has to have because of Mark’s.

Laura was amazing! She took the time to get every shot just right. 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!!!

I can not say enough wonderful things about Randy. From start to finish he was always extremely efficient, professional and very kind. He was very reasonably priced (especially in the wedding photographer world). His communication was also great. He would promptly respond to emails and made sure he knew exactly what I wanted. I got all of the photographs that I was hoping for and they came out beautifully. He sent a flash drive with all of my photos that can be printed out easily with different size and resolution. I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a professional photographer!
