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!

Working with Denise at Penguinmoonstudios was a pleasure. She had the best pricing of over 30 photographers I had asked for a quotation for a 2 hour photo shoot at our Veterinary Hospital. She arrived on time and with all of her camera equipment. Denise was patient, and instructed all staff and customers present for the photoshoot on where and how to stand for the best photo quality. Denise promptly send me medium resolution photos for review and request photoshopping of photos if I thought necessary. Of the 200+ photos she took, only 3 or 4 needed some light retouching! She then mailed me a DVD containing all the high-resolution photos! If I ever get married or have another photo session, Denise would absolutely be re-hired!

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!

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.

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!!!

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.

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!

This was my first ever experience on Thumbtack and I have to say it was awesome. I downloaded the app, plugged in my most egregious procrastination and got 5 proposal back within the hour. Tom was the consummate professional. Very friendly, convenient and skilled as a headshot photographer. We spent just enough time switching outfits, checking the lights and planning the shot. I would recommend Tom to anyone who is in need.

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.

He was quick in the photo shoot and uploading the edited pictures. He also responded very quickly and was able to get me in ASAP. This was really helpful because I needed the photos for a work deadline. He was personable and easy to work with. I would use him again the next time I want to hire a photographer. The pictures came out well.

First off i told her i never felt so comfortable or had so much fun shooting with anyone ever. She bring what most photographers should bring, a mellow cool atmosphere, great spirit and vibe. She cools your surroundings if your tense and uptight. She can talk to you in a soft tone and get the same message across as someone that is more aggressive and loud may do, basically when she speaks or direct, you believe in her and feel the confidence and trust in her direction. Calms your soul. The only thing bad i can say is that the shoot came to an end (haha), would of loved to continue to the sunset. Great ideas and lots of feedback. Pictures came out wonderful and they came fast and she kept it contact with me if i needed any edits which i didnt. Overall A+.

Chris was great to work with! I was nervous about my headshot because previously I had a bad experience with different photographer and ended up with photos I hated. Chris made me feel at ease at our very first meeting. During the shoot, he kept me laughing and feeling myself, which is how I ended up with a headshot that represents me. He also would show me some of the shots in camera and ask me what I thought about them. This made me feel like I was also in charge of the final product. I recommend Chris to anyone who wants a great experience, a personable photographer, and a photo that represents their personality.

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!!!

We hired Travis as a photographer to shoot our clothing line for our retail website/marketing materials. His talents went above and beyond just taking a picture. He took charge in capturing the right angle and working with the model to create the perfect shot. Aside from his photography skills, he is open minded, flexible, and easy to communicate with. I have found this is a challenge with other photographers and so necessary when it comes to creating your vision. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a professional photographer and hope to work with him again in the future.
