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!

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.

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!

When looking for a wedding photographer I called many photographers in the area, many did not get back to me, many required a consult, and most were very expensive. I just wanted someone that could take pictures of my very simple but very important (to me) event. Just as I was about to give up on photographers I found Jon. He called me back right away and made the booking process very easy, with a quick check to see if he had the date available and thankfully he was! He sent a confirmation email and then confirmed again a week before the wedding. He showed up 30 minutes before the ceremony started to get a feel for the outdoor venue. He introduced himself and was very warm and welcoming. He started taking pictures right away. He took so many pictures of my family, my husband’s family, couples and everyone in attendance; doing a great job of understanding who was who and how they were connected to the bride and groom. An added bonus is that 2 days after the event he had all of the photos emailed to me via dropbox. I couldn’t be happier with the pictures and have received many compliments from family and friends on how amazing they turned out and how pleasant Jon was. He truly captured every moment from the evening, moments I may have missed and also reminders of how wonderful the evening was. These pictures will be cherished for many years to come. I am so thankful that I found Jon and highly recommend him for any event!

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!!!

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!

Jeff is an exceptional photographer. family pictures can be a bit overwhelming especially with 2 kids under 5, but he made the whole process smooth. He gave good direction, was pretty patient and outgoing with the kids. The pictures are beautifully candid, you can feel the emotions in them. Can't wait to work with him again!

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!

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.

I hired Jenna for my fiance's shower and our wedding. Over that course of time I can tell you one thing for sure - Jenna is as amazing a person as she is a photographer, I would highly recommend her for any type of event. Not only does she have the education and skill set of a high quality photographer, she also brings a passionate, caring and fun personality, which we loved so much. She was VERY responsive and altered many of her plans to accommodate our event. We had ideas in mind, but after speaking with her, we trusted she would lead us in the right direction and she sure did. That was invaluable because it allowed us to not stress and put more time towards other wedding duties. I can not say enough about her quality of work but also just how great a person she was.

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.

I loved every minute of my session with Philicia. I'm a tough critic when it comes to my pictures because I've taken pictures with a lot of photographers, but she was the best photographer I've ever had by far. Not only was she great at giving suggestions but she also combined both of our visions which seems to be really hard for photographers. It's either they don't give any direction at all or they overpower you with their suggestions, but Philicia did neither. She was the perfect balance. I didn't even know my pictures could come out so great! It was truly art. My portraits came out BEAUTIFULLY! My family loved them and I wouldn't shoot portraits with anyone else. She was simply wonderful and I can't wait to shoot again. My birthday's coming up and already we're thinking of great locations and outfits. I'm so excited to do more!

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 hired Ms. Tobia to take pictures of my daughters and my dog. She arrived half an hour early to our meeting location and was pretty much completely set up by the time I arrived with my family. She even had treats and toys for the dog to help with the shoot. She was very professional, considerate, and playful enough to get my very shy daughter to open up and smile. All the correspondences that I had with her prior to the shoot were pleasant and timely. I absolutely recommend her services if you are a looking for a talented and professional photographer.
