I really enjoyed working with Mary and her teammate. They are very accommodating. My makeup artist took longer than expected and Mary kindly arrived later on short notice. They make us feel comfortable and relaxed. My husband was pleasantly surprised how well the camera captured his navy tie. It would be hard to tell the difference with an IPhone. They are very good at capturing our moments together. I enjoyed working with Mary so much that I decided to hire her for my wedding.

We hired Joe to do a family portrait session for us in early August. From beginning communications to the end result, we were thoroughly impressed by Joe, and we would highly recommend him for anything and will look forward to using him again. Joe was extremely professional, timely in communication as well as production of our photos, and helpful in recommending locations and creative ideas for the shoot. In addition, Joe listened to our ideas and made the utmost effort to see those ideas come to life during the shoot. We were thankful to have found him and are very satisfied with the overall experience. Good luck in your future ventures Joe!

I have never taken a professional photograph before, maybe when I was a kid but I wanted one to use in online profiles, Linkedin etc. I found Steven and his photography through thumbtack. Since this was my first session I didn't know what to expect but Steven was very nice and calm and walked me through the process. We took all the photos outside and Steven was able to pick good spots outside. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for portrait photos!

Alex was the consummate professional to work with from start to finish. He answered every question I had and was very flexible with my schedule (even having to reschedule once on my short notice). I hired Alex to take both my self- and family portraits for my recent graduation at Columbia and I don't believe any other professional could have captured this very special moment in my life any better. Alex was very professional and so friendly throughout the process that my family and I had a wonderful time walking through campus taking multiple shots. Alex even finalized my photo portfolio the same day and I greatly appreciated such a swift and short turnaround! I will be hiring Alex for future photo shoots and know that I am in great hands for amazingly, high quality photos.

Carlos was super accommodating and worked hard to get the job done. I was nervous going into the photo shoot because I don't have a lot of experience in front of the camera, but Carlos and his makeup artist Kat were friendly and helped ease my fears. When it came time to review my pictures, I had a hard time choosing. I ended up with some gorgeous headshots that I can't wait to hand out. Everyone who has seen them so far is very impressed, and I don't hesitate to recommend BlackHill Photography to anyone interested in quality photos. I can't wait to shoot with Carlos and have my makeup done by Kat again. They are both true professionals who have passion for what they do. I can't say thank you enough!

I'm an author with a small press, which means I get to pull things most big publishers won't let you get away with. One of these things was picking my own cover models, and I had two local teens in mind. I wanted a photographer who did more than just your general portrait and event photography, because these had to be character shots. So I wanted someone with a great sense artistry, and Tom's portfolio (which include some fantastic fashion and actor shots) was really the only one in the central Jersey area that I liked. To say Tom was great to work with is the understatement of the year, but despite being a paid wordsmith, I don't know how else to put it! Fantastic to work with? Amazing? Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious? He really went above and beyond what I expected, providing vision for the project that an untrained eye like me would never have thought of. And two teen models had a great time with all the interesting poses Tom came up with. Tom was great at coaching these two aspiring kids and turning them into bona fide models! And not to mention just very friendly and great at making the teens feel at ease. I was on set (to watch and give a input about the characters), and the whole thing was both very professional and a lot of fun at the same time, which really is the best way it could have gone. Tom was really quick about editing the shots and putting them through post-production too - I was impressed by the quick turnaround. And they looked fantastic! My publisher and I were very happy. I would definitely hire Tom Castles again should another occasion come up, and I certainly recommend him and his work.

Hassan is an amazing photographer. Very skilled, extremely accommodating, and very pleasant in his manners. He has been taking very beautiful pictures of extended family for years at many occasions/events such as weddings, reunions, and birthday parties. He has created many galleries for us to share online and keep the memories of good times alive. I am in particular grateful for him taking a very beautiful portrait of my mom and pop shortly before my dad passed away and provided me with a large color print that I have hanging on the wall of my bedroom reminding me of my late dad every day. I highly recommend Hassan to others.

I enjoyed my shoot with Hans. He was very patient. I showed Hans pics of what I wanted to recreate and he said we couldn't do some of them (use of props, etc) but with the help of my friend that I brought with me --we were able to recreate most of the poses, shots I hoped for. This was a shoot for my birthday so I wanted to get really creative --I think Hans is more of a family portrait photographer. Either way--beautiful pictures. Thank you!

Can't say this with enough enthusiasm and gratitude, but working with Luc was PHENOMENAL! From the get-go, Luc is fantastically professional, easy-going, and thoughtful (a true saint especially for entertaining and attentively supporting my multiple questions, ideas and correspondences during the planning process.) Pre-event to post-event, Luc's enthusiasm and sincerity in his engagement was so refreshing to work with. He showed up extra early to calibrate with my team and the space, and also generously stayed later when our event went over-time. As a golden creative professional, Luc's a TRUE ARTIST. You would think that there are limits to how fascinating a standard presentation/networking event can be when it comes to photography... With that said, Luc's got an innate poetic eye and intentional pronounced vision for story-telling. Our event photos came out beyond expectations - in the energy, emotions and moments that were expressively captured and translated through his lens. In a heartbeat, we'll be recommending Luc to folks and will be returning to collaborate with him on multiple events within our pipeline. As a start-up solidifying our brand and growth through these events, we couldn't be happier to have found a video/photo artist who can so intimately understand our evolving vision, but who also brings his own unique vision and sensibilities to help propel our aesthetic identity forward. Much respect to ya Luc!

Jenna did an excellent job capturing our NY wedding in April! She came early and took pictures of our venue and ceremony and receptions. She had a good mix of candids and portraits pictures. She was very flexible and listened to all of our requests. We received around 300 photos within 2 weeks after the event and couldn't be happier! We would highly recommend Jenna for future weddings or other events.

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 is a superstar! She came to my office with a huge selection of lighting & equipment to set up for the shoot. She experimented with multiple types of lighting, filters & angles “just to sure” I had enough to choose from for my end purpose. She’s super dedicated & nice to deal with. I recommend Laura for your next portrait or headshot.

Basel came to our home to capture photos of our living room for a company called Benchmade modern. From the second he walked in you could tell he was an artist. He saw something in our space that we couldn't. He was so polite and arranged the room to capture the best photo possible and that he did. The images are stunning. I would recommend Basel for any of your photography needs.
