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!

Maria was amazing to work with! This is my first pregnancy and I wanted to memorialize it with maternity photos. I had posted that I was looking for a photographer and Maria responded quickly and was quick to answer any and all questions. Her responsiveness and professionalism made it an easy decision to make to hire her. Pregnancy has increased my anxiety levels and she was patient with all of my questions along the way as we neared the date of my shoot. I changed location on her several times trying to decide where I wanted it too and she showed up with a smile ready to go. Her guidance and ease while shooting was also much appreciated. Even my husband, who was not keen on doing this, had a great time. Best of all the photos came out so beautiful!! I cannot wait for her to come out for newborn photos. I definitely recommend Maria, the quality of her photography and pricing cannot be beat!

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!

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.

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!

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.

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.

Jhancy was fantastic to work with. She is an amazing photographer and unbelievably creative. My wife and I can be busy and she was awesome in helping us plan for our daughters first portrait session (she's turning 1 year). She helped us pick the right setting, background, and even the right dress for the photo session. When we arrived for the session, the setup looked INCREDIBLE! She definitely goes out of her way to ensure that every facet of the photo session is a great experience. Even when our little one was getting tired, she was still patient and helpful. In seeing the preview photos, my wife and I know we made the right choice in working with Jhancy. Thanks a lot for making this a special experience Jhancy!

We hired Elizabeth for family portraits at the beach with my children and grandchildren. She spent the first 5 -10 minutes of the session with us to understand what we wanted out of the session and she then helped guide us with several excellent suggestions that enhanced the beautiful portraits she delivered to us. I was also amazed on how she handled my grandkids who were trying to get a little wild but, she certainly has a talent with kids and was able to rein them in. I would strongly recommend Elizabeth’s work. We are so happy with the beautiful portraits that capture our family memories.

Cristian and his team provided amazing photography and video services for our wedding. We were pleasantly surprised that he was able to give us a few select pics the same night of our wedding so we could share with our family and friends. The videos and pics were very artistic and captured our special day beautifully! And the presentation of the final package of videos and pics was top notch. I would highly recommend Cine Marvel Films. -Sheila Brooklyn, NY

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.
