Mary and Ali are the absolute best!!! I was beyond thrilled with the amazing photos these talented photographers took at the birthday party. Mary and Ali were great to work with and made us, the guests and the families feel completely at ease. They were able to capture all the emotions of the day and every single time we look at the photos of the party, we are able to feel all those emotions once again. I can't wait to work with them again!!!! I cannot praise them and their work enough!

My girlfriend hinted (like beating me over the head with a 2”x4”) 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 you’re 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 wasn’t 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 can’t 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 that’s 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 don’t 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.

Jon was an absolutely wonderful photographer for our Sweet 16 Celebration. Extremely professional throughout the experience, from booking to the final moments of the event. Jon followed up with me from first contact, reached out a few days before to confirm details and asked great questions that helped him understand what exactly we were looking for. Our guests all commented on how he conducted himself during our party, he seemed to know exactly where to be at the right time to capture the moments that meant so much...the toddlers playing together, interactions between the guests, moments of laughter, great shots of the teens dancing, etc. Jon works a little bit differently than most photographers I have dealt with in the past. Typically, I found they focused more on selling post-processing and albums, etc. Jon doesn't take this approach. Instead, he captures the event and sends you all of your photos by Dropbox and/or CD. There isn't any extra fees involved AND, due to the fact that he has an amazing eye for capturing moments, you get amazing photos, straight off the camera. I love this approach, since our guest of honor desired to have photos to post on social media as well as print on her own, and wanted to share them with family who were unable to attend the event, there wasn't anything preventing that...or consequently, costing us $$$ to do this. We own the photos and have complete liberty to share them however, wherever. The savings with this approach is tremendous in comparison to the typical contracts photographers offer, and in today's world of digital media, it provides us the format to have every picture available, and allows us to print off physical photos at any photo kiosk we choose. Quite a few guests from our party have contacted me about Jon and are looking for him to capture their events; I know I will not be needing Thumbtack any longer when I need a photographer in the New Jersey area. I cannot say enough about the positive experience and perfect fit we found with Jon for our photography needs.

I cannot even express my gratitude for Cheyanna ! Her work is absolutely stunning and blew my mind! I received a lot of quotes before making my decision to hire her but her website images and work is what made me decide for Cheyanna. The price is absolutely fair and she spent all day with us! I have used other photographers in the past but no one has ever been this responsive and understanding. Not only did the photos come way sooner than expected but she also let me know when which is something I appreciate even more. She also sent a sneak peak! I never had anyone do that before and this was even more appreciated. I had other photographers where I constantly had to ask about when my photos would come back and Cheyanna was the opposite! She truly impressed us with her work and communication throughout. Her product is first class and it was also great to spend the day with her as she made us feel comfortable throughout. Don’t even think about hiring someone else and save you the hassle !!!

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 the photographer for my daughters sweet 16 and it went outstanding. The pictures were clean and amazing quality. He got every part of night and took pictures of the decorations and guests. He was professional and polite, making my daughters sweet 16 another reason to remember! He stayed for longer than expected and took amazing shots. He was beyond reasonable for people on a budget. Every guest looking at these photos were absolutely stunned about how beautifully these were. His photos were more than we ever thought we can be. He sent a link with ALL the photos in less then 24 hours. We will cherish these photos for many years.

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.

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.

I hired Philicia at the very last minute to do a surprise dinner for my brother on his promotion. She was brilliant! The pictures were beautiful and it made me so happy to see my brother smiling and celebrating after working so hard for that promotion. Philicia caught a wonderful picture of my brother giving me a giant hug and I couldn't be more grateful. Philicia and I were the only women at the event (my brother has a lot of male friends) and not only is she an excellent photographer but she is a sweet and warm person to boot! I highly recommend her services! I’m so happy she was able to cover my dinner. Thanks so much Philicia! I will definitely call you for more events in the future. 10 stars!

I'm a real estate agent. I went through 3 different photographers before I found PicsQuik. I was short handed at the time, and I'm glad I chose them. Quick and efficient! Work was very thorough, and the pictures came out excellent in the short time I needed them. I would highly recommend PicsQuik.

Kaddy was a real pleasure to work with! I hope to work with her again in future! She is a skilled photographer for sure! An area where she really stands out from other photographers I have worked with is her ability to capture great action shots (in this case of dancers)! She got a lot of really great shots that were very complimentary! (In my experience, folks who try to photograph dancers take a lot of really awkward-looking shots! Not Kaddy!) I recommend her highly!

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!

'Brilliant' is the only word to describe Nina's work. Thank you so much Nina for capturing Misha's first b'day bash. You just not only captured the beautiful photos but memories as well - and we will cherish that our whole life. It’s difficult to photo-shoot 1 yr old but the way you arranged, was fantastic. You captured all special moments that matter a lot and are absolutely amazing. I re-live the whole session when I see the photos. You are an incredible photographer and (most important) very humble and nice person. With that said, you also put us in a problem now - its getting difficult to pick favorites/best :). Thank you again for doing such a wonderful job.

I recently started a new job and needed a new headshot. Unfortunately my company didn’t offer these services in-house. A friend recommended Elizabeth, and not having had any real experience with a professional photographer I was a bit nervous (and I was like 20 minutes late to my appointment). Well, when all was said and done, I have to say Elizabeth was very compassionate and extremely professional. And one of the best parts was I was able to download my headshots the next day in time to include in a PowerPoint for a client presentation. My boss when seeing my headshot even complimented me and asked where I got it done. Overall, I had a great experience with Elizabeth and would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for a headshot.

I was very pleased with DJ Kareem and his photography crew. Although, I was having trouble finding a DJ and Photographer for my daughter's sweet 16 Aug. 30th, 2014@ ROMA VIEW CATERING, as a last resort I decided to sign up with Thumbtuck. It was the best decision I made because, I came across DJ Kareem. He went above and beyond to provide us with not only exceptional music but great photography. He even surprised us with extra goodies (glow sticks with daughters name, whistles etc.) Overall, everything was fabulous....I could not ask for anything more....everything was organized!! My daughter and her friends were dancing...my daughter dancing shocked everyone that know her but, thanks to the great music and Kareem's DJ crew my daughter was actually dancing!!! It was great! So..on behalf of myself, daughter, family, and friends we would like to thank DJ Kareem and his crew Sherland Moses, Dwight Disilva and Erneil Johnny for making our night unforgettable! Sincerely, Samantha
