Mary Photography did a splendid job of taking pictures of our wedding in the rain. While our spirits were dampened a bit, their photographers' spirits were beaming with cheer at the prospect of using the rain, fog and mist as props. In addition, their sense of composition, and post-production editing, which interspersed the album with a few black-and-white pictures was top-notch. They captured and conveyed the story and essence of our beautiful wedding day! My wife said your pictures made her love her husband more. :-) Thanks, Gautham.
I just went on Google type in Photography for pictures for my son which is only 7 yrs. old for acting and modeling so you all can see this is my sons career so this has to be very important to us, I had so many response from all, soon as I spoke to Carlos I knew even though at the time didn't do any research like rip off or bbb I knew he was the one. He is an honest man just by talking to him on the phone and of course I did speak to other people but its all about the Photographer and how he treats you and doesn't take advantage of. This man Carlos Alva I give you A+ for manners, respect , great work and most of all you honestly Thank you so much Carlos from Black Hill Photography for just being who you are the best work and because of you my son is getting so much work in acting I have to hire a attorney and manager. I will always be coming back to you you are the best. Deana Falco New Jersey
I hired Luc to shoot portraits to promote my NYC based pop band. I had themes, looks and locations planned; Luc instantly shared my vision and was superb at capturing moments and lighting! I am very happy with the outcome and everyone's loving the pictures! Luc is excellent at editing in black and white and very generous with his proofs. Luc is a true artist, which was a nice dynamic to have throughout the entire process.
Working with Chad was a pleasure. We were looking for a 1950's style photo shoot and he absolutely nailed the look without any need for correction. The shoot + editing would normally have cost much more, but Chad's prices were extremely affordable, even with such professional grade results. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Bradley did our wedding at The Top of the Rock,he made us feel very relaxed from the start and we were very pleased with the results both black and white and colour. Thank you Bradley !
We hired Brian through Thumbtack to photograph our sons rehearsal dinner aboard the Atlatis. Being from out of state, Thumbtack was able to introduce us to photographers available to do the job. After looking at everyone's portfolio's, we selected Brian. We loved what he did with lighting, capturing candid's, and black and whites. He did not disappoint. The pictures are amazing. I highly recommend Brian for your event and thank you for capturing our special night. L&M Hoffman
I highly recommend working with Steven! He took my professional head shots and I am extremely happy with the results. He was very patient and made me feel relaxed throughout the entire process. The end results were beautiful – he provided me with both colored and black and white options, and uploaded the photos very quickly after the shoot. The hardest part was deciding which head shot to choose because they all came out so great! Thanks again Steven for your amazing work!
I had a birthday celebration for the ages and the guys at Bearded Monkey captured all the best moments! The photos were amazing - black/white, color, portrait style, action shots, group shots etc... I would hire them again and again and recommend them to anyone looking for the expected and unexpected. Cheers!
Within 5 minutes of meeting goes him. It was worth the time and allowing him to take pics of our boy. The action shots, black and white, and overall experience was awesome it itself. Definitely going to use again in the future...
Torri is a genuine talented professional that has a nurturing, caring ability that shows in the results of her photos. While taking professional headshot portraits for me she had a way of putting me at ease. Her engaging conversations during my sitting showed that she was genuinely interested in investing her time and talent with me. In today's digital world there are many photographers, but Torri is so much more. She's an artist that brings out her subjects personality in film memories with her love for what she does. I highly recommend Torri for all your photography needs both professional and personal.
Jeff photographed my daughter's Bat Mitzvah -- the Shabbat dinner with family and large party as well as pictures inside the sanctuary. He worked in a variety of styles -- black and white, color, staged, candid -- and did an amazing job. At the party, after he had taken the formal family pics, he had enough people working with him who were taking pictures that he could stay in the "mosh pit" of the kids -- for nearly 5 hours! -- and get terrific pictures that really captured the moment. I found him very flexible, accommodating to our needs, and completely reliable. He was also well priced for the quality he delivered. I highly recommend Jeff!
Michael and his team were the photographers for the black tie gala for the Ascend Educational Fund, an event I chair. He was incredibly professional: arrived early, brought all the necessary lighting equipment, took amazing photos, and edited all the photos within a few days!
Ms. Neysmith was hired to document the crew of The Chieftain racing yacht at the 2013 Manhassett Bay Falls Series Regatta on Long Island Sound. Her keen eye and quick instinct during this fast paced, national level event proved her to be expert in sports photography. The brilliant colour and black & white photos that she created are of the finest portrayals of Chieftain's crew in action. She comes with the highest of recommendations. Images available upon request. - A.H. / Cockpit First Mate, New York, NY.
Mollie photographed our wedding and did an amazing job! The pictures were gorgeous and everything was covered while I was at ease and could enjoy my big day. Mollie is a true artist and you could see that in the final product - beautiful shots that weren't your generic wedding photos. They reflected who we were as a couple while capturing the whole day and all of our guest. She puts people at ease to really capture the moment. She also does an amazing job with black and white film! That is something you don't see many photographers doing these days. Really special! I would highly recommend mollie!
Chris is a very fun person to be around. He instantly makes you comfortable and his pictures are amazing. He can really capture the beauty in every shot that otherwise you would have missed with your own naked eyes. Both black and white, landscape and his portraits are great. He puts a Iot of thought and hard work into his photography and I believe it shows. It's definitely a pleasure knowing and working with him.
I purchased a beautiful photo - I was hard to pick just one - the black and white photo was so professionally finished. I would definitely recommend to friends and family.
I used Colin for my daughters sweet 16 party and he was a true professional. The quality of his candid as well as posed photographs was outstanding. Using both color and black and white film Colin was able to express his artistic ability while capturing lasting memories for our family to cherish. I would highly recommend Colin Seitz Photography and will use him again in the future
I hired Skylar in January 2015 with a vague vision as to what I really wanted her to capture. I had recently gotten engaged and suggested to her that we take just a couple of shots of my fiancé and I before our engagement party, as we would be all dressed up anyways, and these could serve as impromptu engagement photos. (My fiancé had asked me to marry him while we were on vacation abroad and while the proposal was astounding and amazing in every way, I felt we didn't have high quality photos of the two of us to reflect such a momentous occasion.) However, as I went on to explain what I thought could be a casual photo session, I also explained the setup of the situation - this would be the first time in which both sets of parents would meet, and the first time our families would see us since we got engaged (talk about expectations, right?!) Skylar immediately heard my voice and understood my vision. She calmly suggested we give ourselves ample enough time alone in the beginning so we could work together in the space (a private room in a restaurant in the West Village which was rented by my fiancé as another element of surprise of the proposal so both Skylar and I were flying blind in regards to the setup and décor!). As we sipped our cocktails, Skylar simply told us to casually chat and interact together as we normally would. She artfully captured very touching and affectionate moments within the first minutes. It turned out that the room was gorgeously decorated with tons of candles and glass vases that beautifully reflected the warm ambiance. Skylars photos captured the lighting in the most perfect way. She was able to craftily suggest non-posey poses (an adamant request of mine to not end up with prom pictures!) and we were awarded with a range of standing, sitting, embracing photos that very much felt like us. As our families arrived, Skylar effortlessly transitioned to capturing all of the excitement. She was able to catch all of the different groups chatting and physical details of each conversation as if there were seven of her in the room. Theres a photo of my father holding my hand and admiring my ring in such an affectionate way that still makes me tear up when I see it and we had zero idea we were being photographed! After much hubbub, my father announced that he wanted to do a toast. Skylar intuitively moved to a staircase to capture the entire room in all of its emotional essence while somehow also being able to highlight my fiancés beaming face. When we sat down to eat, she gracefully packed up her gear and graciously thanked me for asking her to be a part of the evening. All in all, Skylars personality is so serene and sincere, she makes everyone feel at ease. She has a way about being so discreet, resulting in candids that truly capture the essence of the moment. She was able to edit the photographs and turn them around quickly, even offering to convert selected ones into black and white. She provided me with an easy link and when I sent it out to our family, their reactions were priceless! Our mothers, his sister, my brothers girlfriend, all poured over the images and had so many compliments about all of the little details of each one. Since sharing a select few photos on social media, Ive gotten rave reviews - being told that we look like models and should be on the cover of Vanity Fair probably was the greatest! I think my stepmother put it best when she said goodness gracious, these are stunning and man, Skylar is an AMAZING photographer.
Nicki Bosch has a unique eye and a genuine calling for photography. Her work is exquisitely beautiful, wildly creative and true-hearted. She has shot several sessions for our family, and my kids adore her. Nicki captured my children perfectly, and has given us a series of images that we already treasure -- and that our family will enjoy for generations to come. An innovative, passionate and talented photographer -- with a real and immediate connection to children. Far beyond the family portrait in white shirts and jeans on the beach -- this is fine art that she's creating, with your children as the adored subject, plain and simple.
Booked a fashion shoot (stills and video) with Jeremy for my portfolio and am so happy with my photos! Jeremy took his time and allowed me multiple wardrobe changes, which is rare for a photographer to do(I usually feel rushed on headshot and photo shoots). Jeremy was also a real pleasure to work with (we cracked lots of jokes) and emailed me the proofs very soon after. The black and white video came out beautiful and timeless! I'd def recommend booking with him!
