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.

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!

I hired Jeff to take pictures for my surprise proposal to my girlfriend (now fiance). I chose to propose at Central Park - Bethesda Fountain - a location that Jeff recommended. The whole experience working with Jeff was a sheer pleasure. Where should I begin - Jeff is extremely professional to work with but more importantly very flexible and extremely pleasant. Jeff allowed me to guide the process while providing guidance having worked at this location before (he provided detailed maps with spots where we should stand to make me familiar with the location). The day of the shoot, he was on time and came with the right equipment. He captured the best candid shot of my now fiance gasping for breathe when I got down on one knee. He then proceeded to take pictures with family and friends. To my surprise, he then took me and my fiance for our own engagement shoot (I wasn't expecting that) - we must have posed in 5 different locations and he must have taken over 400 pictures - mind you, I only hired him for one hour. After the shoot, he sent us a few sneak peaks that we could share with our family and friends and on social media. All these have been impeccable. He is collating the best out of the ~400 and plans to send them to us in the coming weeks; I cannot wait to see them all. Overall, I couldn't have had a better photographer to work with on such an important day of my life and my fiance feels the same way. I will hire Jeff again in a heartbeat. Thank you, Jeff.

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!

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!

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!

Kate is a consummate professional. Punctual, fast, and friendly, not only did she provide great photos, she proposed slight staging tips and worked with what I had to make my apartment look even better. I scoured many other photographers' portfolios prior to working with Kate and I feel I made the right choice given her keen eye and extensive experience with real estate in particular.

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!!!
