My girlfriend hinted (like beating me over the head with a 2x4) that she hoped a photographer would be around to capture our impending proposal. So I did what any 21st century guy would do and hit the internet. I emailed several photographers in the tri-state area, all getting back to me with varying fees and availability. I found Neil Blake on Thumbtack. His personal website showed his experience, so I explained to him that I would like for him to secretly photograph my proposal. I detailed that I had hired a caricaturist (if youre reading this and also are in the market for a caricaturist, look no further than Jessica du Preez) that would be drawing me on one knee proposing to my girlfriend though we would be sitting next to each other on a park bench. He agreed, and we were set. The big day was a beautiful October Sunday in Hoboken. So perfect, in fact, that there were literally dozens of people taking pictures (with what looked to me like high-end cameras). My girlfriend and I walked around the general area that I had laid out for the caricaturist to set up and for Neil to be ready to find us. I literally had no idea what Neil (or my caricaturist looked like), and so I wasnt sure if people were taking pictures of us or of the scenery (and it turned out that it was Neil taking a few of those pictures, he really did a wonderful job at being so discreet). Once I found my caricaturist and the drawing was in progress, he would walk by non-chalantly (pretending to be one of these everyday photographers enjoying the beautiful day) and marvel at how well the drawing was coming along and ask my caricaturist if it would be alright if he could take a picture while she sketched and ask us if he could take our picture (of course it was okay! But my girlfriend was still not entirely in the know. It was all for her, and it was perfect. Neil was fantastic. I cant believe how they went above and beyond to really play the parts that I asked them to play). He walked away and took some other discreetly long-distance shots, shots from behind, everything. You can really tell the entire story from the pictures leading up to the caricature, during the caricature, after she said yes. And I think thats more than I could have hoped for when I hired him to be our photographer. After the gig was up, he brought us around for 30 minutes or so posing us against the skyline and taking literally hundreds of pictures. I really feel like I got a lot for my money, and I dont see how I would do it any differently (and that goes for not only Neil, but also Jessica). I am still blown away by how flawless the day turned out for me and my now fiancée partly due to the fact that I did not know what Neil (nor my caricaturist, Jessica du Preez, for that matter (whom I also highly recommend, but that is for another review)) looked like, partly because I was hoping for true perfection, and partly due to the stress of getting several pieces (timing, two people (caricaturist and photographer) working together that have never even met, etc) into place without my girlfriend knowing (okay, so she knew it was coming. But she did not know how and what I had planned, so she was still very much in the dark). At the onset of this review, I had hoped that it would be more about the professionalism and expertise of Neil and less about me and the proposal, but let my excitement and joy be a testament to him. For any function at all, consider hiring Neil Blake to capture the story. He will do a superb job.
Took a headshot for my real estate website. Only had to take a few shots to get the right one. Great quality great work
As a project manager for a magazine, I have to book photographers in cities across the country, not knowing anything about them. For us at the magazine, it's always a risky operation because we don't have an established relationship with most of the photographers, plus we're always under tight deadlines, AND we can't physically be at these photoshoots. When we found JoAnne, we booked her that day for a shoot the following day. When I spoke with her she was so professional and so bubbly I felt like I could trust her with our clients immediately. This totally put my mind at ease considering all the bad experiences we've had in the past. When we received the photos from JoAnne, the quality of photos was amazing and the shots were exactly what we needed. JoAnne even went above and beyond the count that we asked for which gave us a lot of variety. Our magazine looks great because of J Richards! If we have to book a photographer in this area again, we will be coming straight to her.
Great photographers and do a great job!
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.
I was in need of a videographer and photographer in New York. The venue we happened to be getting married at recommended Corey & Faymus Media. So I contacted Corey. He was very down to earth and comfortable to talk to about my big day. His experience really shows as he helped me better understand my day and how formal photos and the timeline would fit. On the day of the wedding Corey & one of his photographers made my whole day go perfectly. We got all the photos we wanted and they were so relaxed and professional. They interacted with our guests which made them feel more comfortable for photos and video. The amount of professional equipment Corey has is unreal. He has very high end movie equipment. My son is an aspiring videographer and was asking a ton of questions and Corey still made time to show him everything while working. I thought that was really kind of him as it made my sons day! Once we recieved our final edited video I was so impressed. I cried as It was beautiful. We were provided 4k which the definition is incredible as we have a 4k TV. I totally recommend Corey & Faymus Media for any Photography or Videography you may need. Truly blessed to have found them. I will be looking to book with them for my sisters wedding next summer. Thanks so much Corey & Jim! - Melissa Createro
Bin was fantastic. I hired her for our wedding rehearsal dinner fairly last-minute, and it could not have worked any better. She took great photographs and produced great edits, was very punctual and professional, and everyone spoke very highly of her at the rehearsal dinner. This was my first experience with Thumbtack. My wife and I hired a separate wedding photographer, but I wanted something less formal for the rehearsal dinner. I had a quick chat with Bin beforehand and asked her to focus on natural/candid shots since we had much more formal photos planned for the next day. Bin blew away expectations and fit the bill perfectly. Thanks again!
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.
Hassan was very professional. I hired him to photograph my mother's 70th Birthday, the pictures were great. His price quote was very resonable compared to what other photographers were quoting. I will definitely hire him again.
A few weeks ago I hired Luc to film one of my training classes for Real Estate Agents in Brooklyn. Luc was professional from start to finish. On time, never rushed, blended into the crowd, and the quality of the final product was fantastic. I asked Luc to make several small clips of a few minutes each and he knew exactly what to do. I have already hired Luc for two more projects. Want more details? Please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 646-529-2560. Doug Vairo
I hired Kate for real estate photos. She was professional, helpful and delivered a great product!
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.
Jovana is an amazing photographer! A real professional, with so much technical skill and creativity. She has the best eye for spotting the perfect composition and lighting. She is also very personable and patient, so it was easy to feel comfortable shooting with her. The photos she took are all stunning. I very highly recommend her! Jovana is one of the best!
I recently started a new job and needed a new headshot. Unfortunately my company didn’t offer these services in-house. A friend recommended Elizabeth, and not having had any real experience with a professional photographer I was a bit nervous (and I was like 20 minutes late to my appointment). Well, when all was said and done, I have to say Elizabeth was very compassionate and extremely professional. And one of the best parts was I was able to download my headshots the next day in time to include in a PowerPoint for a client presentation. My boss when seeing my headshot even complimented me and asked where I got it done. Overall, I had a great experience with Elizabeth and would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for a headshot.
Mark was fantastic! After the first session, which I enjoyed a lot, I scheduled another one without any hesitation. He is a real master of his profession. He fulfilled all of my requests, and all of the pictures came out perfect. Love his excellent work! I would highly recommend Mark Milch as a photographer, and would use him again
Very responsive and polite. Incredible real estate photographer. Simply wow!!!
Shot out companies real estate listings. Job well done
Marc did some real estate photography for us recently. He was efficient, knowledgeable and produced clean color balanced photographs. I would definitely recommend Marc for anyone interested in this type of project.
Awesome experience working with Michael. Very talented photographer with great results.
Jonah was the photographer we chose for our maternity/family photos this year. He was such a great person to work with. Most photographers have their photo shoots all planned out and there isn't much room to adjust anything, Jonah on the other hand was very willing to try our goofy ideas. We felt involved throughout the shoot, not like we were just being told what to do. And the photos! Oh my, the photos turned out so good! I would suggest anyone to go with Jonah for any type of photography work!
She gets 5 stars all around. Excellent photographer and great experience. Thanks again!
