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!

A quality photographer is more than simply clicking buttons on a fancy camera. John is an experienced photographer who is able to utilize the number of events and portraits he's done to capture unexpected moments. When hiring someone for a service, I look for honesty, professionalism, punctuality, quality, and skill. John exceeds expectations regarding all aspects, especially punctuality because he shows up early not simply on time. Being familiar to locations is crucial to photography since the essence of a photo is not only to capture the individuals in it but the scenery and mood behind it. When shooting my portrait, John was able to make me feel comfortable and guide me to various poses as I am no professional model. He provides quality photos in a timely manner as I was eager to see my portraits. I have received numerous compliments on my portrait shots. I highly recommend John because he's professional, skilled, friendly, and personable. He is upfront about his price quote, no hidden tricks!

Tina and I had a 90-minute headshot session at the International Center of Photogrsphy in midtown Manhattan. I asked Tina to engage a makeup artist to prepare me for the shoot; while I think she did a good job, she could not stay for the shoot itself. The last two photographers with whom I have worked had theirs stay for the duration, and it was helpful to have the makeup rechecked and touched up - especially for a woman my age. I think Tina is a really good photographer - and an artist in her own right. But sometimes her focus on expression and composition means that she doesn’t always see the details of her subject. There were numerous shots that she selected for my review that I couldn't use because a stray lock of hair was falling into my eye. I am not the one looking through the lens, and I can't see what the photographer does. One word, and I could easily have fixed it. We also spent the majority of the session with me wearing the same blouse - even though we had selected 2 additional wardrobe changes. As a result, the number of usable photos in those two changes was somewhat limited. We did come up with a number of really good headshots; Tina retouched my favorites herself, and I am having two of them reproduced as I write this. I appreciated the energy and encouragement that Tina brought to her work, and I would recommend her work to my fellow actors.

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!

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'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.

An absolutely Amazing experience working with Jovana . I was visiting New York and was very interested to take some professional shots as a memory to this lovely city, Jovana helped me to capture my visit beyond my expectations, she is a true artist and master of her work. Emphasis on Artist! she takes outdoor photos to a whole new level. I have never had so much fun taking photos as I did with Jovana. The photos were just beyond anything I could have imagined.

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!

Probably best portrait of all of us we've ever had done by anyone. Lena has a unique gift in finding the best and most flattering angle while making the photos incredibly approachable. Plus she's friendly and a pleasure to be around. Will definitely continue sending everyone who needs headshots/portraits to her beautiful studio.

Words can’t describe how wonderful Daniel and Liz are! As a husband and wife team, they were able to capture all of the special and intimate moments of our wedding down to the smallest detail. They were very professional, sweet, courteous and friendly and guided us through the entire picture taking process by showing us various poses and making sure everyone’s clothes and hair were styled properly. I also loved the portrait shoot they set up in the back, with an amazing background, to capture fun and memorable pictures of our guest. They are absolutely great and would recommend them for any event. They have easily become our family photographers and we will be using them for many more events in the future.

Nancy was fantastic! She was very punctual in responding to all of my questions, as I planned this from across the country. She arrived on time, wrangled a large group of us to create an amazing family portrait that spans 4 generations. Her work was beautiful and delivered via an online gallery just days after our event.

We hired Kaushal for our family portraits session and are amazed by the quality of the pictures. He is very courteous, professional and amazingly skilled. With his quick minimal setup, he created pictures which one can't tell whether they were taken in a studio or our backyard. I highly recommend him and certainly going to hire him again for family events.
