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.
Joe was extremely professional and responsive. I have worked with many photographers before and Joe was definitely the most "on-top-of-it"! Besides being easy to work with, the work product was amazing. Very clear and professional head shots. The subjects of his photos said he made them feel comfortable.
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!
Great commercial photographer, we will use them again. A pleasure to work with!
He is a great person to work with. He knows his job very well I will recommend him alwyes to every body to use him as a professional photographer
Blackhill photography is one of the best photographers out there that capture every special moment. He has done my daughter's communion photos plus all her birthday photos. Every experience is professional and exceptional.
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.
Emily is an amazing photographer - her pictures developed beautifully. She captured candid and formal photos for our launch event -- lighting and quality of her photos were exceptional. I would definitely hire her again for events!
Outstanding service! This was the first time I've ever taken professional pictures before and I must say I actually don't mind looking at an image of myself now haha. The quality is outstanding! Tom Castles is very professional photographer. He got me to relax from a very tensed state from when I walked in. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for professional shots.
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.
We hired Dag to take pictures at our wedding since we really liked his aesthetic as demonstrated by the pictures on his website. He did not disappoint. Almost all of the pictures he took were very good with respect to composition and quality. The remainder were outstanding. He gave us all of the pictures within a week. It was a great experience especially when compared to another photographer we hired for our engagement.
Anj was amazing. On time. Plenty of helpful hints and guidance to insure memorable photos. Price was amazing for last minute booking. I high recommend This photographer. We had a great time with her.
Alex is a professional photographer. Not only took very good photos, also was punctual, efficient the whole process and accommodated my last minute needs. Good job Alex.
I was highly amazed by Hans' professionalism and thorough understanding of the world of photography. The photoshoot took place in his spacious living room where he assembled the setup to professional industry-standard in less than 15mins. He really has great direction to bring the out the very best in his clients and for these reasons, I have found myself a new photographer in New York City!!!
David Warner stands for True Professional!!! I wanted to have the perfect headshot photo and David had gone above and beyond of making sure I was satisfied with the photo he had taken. This guy is very accomodating, hardworking, patient, and very friendly. Very satisfied with his work, would highly recommended him as your photographer 10+++Rating!!!
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.
I have worked with several photographers in the past but have decided to keep going back to Justin. I have done two photoshoots with Justin and was very pleased with the way both sets of pictures came out. He definitely has a good eye for photography - he sees the big picture but also pays attention to the details. He is also a great guy and easy to work with....flexible and responds quickly. I look forward to working with him again.
Great Photographer to work with!
Briana was a very humble and professional photographer! She took my fiancée and I’s engagement photo near the Empire State and the turn around time was super quick! Would def consider her for future work.
Peter Giunta of Primodio Studios was the videographer at our son’s Bar Mitzvah on September 16, 2017, and was an absolute gem to work with...AND we love both the highlight video and full video that we received from him! Peter is very professional and sought our input to ensure that the products he delivered were exactly what we were looking for. He captured absolutely everything about our son’s Bar Mitzvah that we wanted him to….the setting, dancing, the blessing over the challah, our son with his friends, and with family and family friends, my husband’s and my speech, the candlelighting ceremony, photo montage and an unexpected pleasant surprise was that he asked some guests to say a few words to our son near the end of the video. For us, the day was one of those days that we’d like to hold onto forever, and while we can’t literally do that, the videos that we received from Peter are the next best thing! They have captured the love, joy and sheer magic of the day; we’ll cherish them forever! In addition to videotaping the Bar Mitzvah, we asked Peter to take family portraits at our synagogue on September 23rd, as the photographer we used for the Bar Mitzvah was unavailable that day and we were very pressed for time. Peter did it and we are very happy with the photographs that we received from him. He took wonderful photos of our son with us, his brother, his grandparents, reading the Torah and with the rabbi. If you are looking for either a photographer or videographer, we highly recommend Peter Giunta/Primodio Studios. Peter's price was very reasonable and again, he's an absolute pleasure to work with.
