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!

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!

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.

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 was fantastic! We wanted unstaged shots to document our event and she did a great job! She was able to recognize when special moments were happening and artfully captured them as they unfolded. The photos had a wonderfully organic quality to them and her candid portraits of the guests were truly beautiful. She was professional and very sweet to boot. We highly recommend her!

I was in need of a videographer and photographer in New York. The venue we happened to be getting married at recommended Corey & Faymus Media. So I contacted Corey. He was very down to earth and comfortable to talk to about my big day. His experience really shows as he helped me better understand my day and how formal photos and the timeline would fit. On the day of the wedding Corey & one of his photographers made my whole day go perfectly. We got all the photos we wanted and they were so relaxed and professional. They interacted with our guests which made them feel more comfortable for photos and video. The amount of professional equipment Corey has is unreal. He has very high end movie equipment. My son is an aspiring videographer and was asking a ton of questions and Corey still made time to show him everything while working. I thought that was really kind of him as it made my sons day! Once we recieved our final edited video I was so impressed. I cried as It was beautiful. We were provided 4k which the definition is incredible as we have a 4k TV. I totally recommend Corey & Faymus Media for any Photography or Videography you may need. Truly blessed to have found them. I will be looking to book with them for my sisters wedding next summer. Thanks so much Corey & Jim! - Melissa Createro

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 Andrea to photograph my daughters Sweet 16. She did an amazing job and was very professional. The entire night she took pictures. At key points, she made sure everyone in the pic was visible, looking at the camera and smiling. We will use her again for our next function.

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!

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!

Vincent was absolutely amazing! He captured the best moments of our daughter's Sweet 15. The photo booth was a HUGE hit with everyone. They wouldn't stop talking about how much fun it was. We were able to view our pictures a few days after the party and we must say, they were great! We recommend Vincent to anyone who is searching for a great photographer.

Daniel worked as our photographer for my daughter's sweet sixteen and we couldn't have asked for a more pleasant experience. Daniel was very professional, friendly, and great with our guests. He had a very quick turn around time and we received our photos days after the party. We have already booked him for our next event this spring and cannot wait to work with him again. We would highly recommend his outstanding and professional services!

Tatiana is an amazingly talented, professional photographer. She photographed our wedding reception in Brooklyn this past April and captured everything perfectly. Not only was she a fabulous at capturing our special day, she gave us time together. My wedding day was probably one of the most stressful days of my life (we planned everything which included setting up the venue, purchasing the flowers for the floral arrangements, buying the mixers minutes before changing into our wedding attire) and Tatiana did not add to the stress but actually gave my husband and I a few minutes throughout the evening to step away from the party and enjoy each other's company. At other weddings, photographers take you away for several minutes or an hour which make you feel like you're missing the celebration. Not the case on our day! She helped us live in the moment and it made our evening more romantic and memorable. Tatiana took the best candid pictures of us, our guests, and decor. She has a wonderful eye and captured our evening exquisitely. It was simple with a beautiful result. I am so glad we hired her. It was easily one of the best decisions we made.

John Flowers is a brilliant photographer – simply brilliant! I hired him for Event Photography of my daughter’s Sweet 16 Party. The stunning nighttime photos by the outdoor gazebo proved his ability to conquer light. The pictures looked as if they were taken at daytime! Then, moving indoors, he was engaged all throughout the evening. His photos unequivocally told the story of the high energy of the party! I took pictures with my iPhone too but was unsuccessful because the moving heads laser lights and flashing disco ball made my pics look dark and out of focus. By contrast, John Flowers captured the light and caught every minute detail. He took live action shots of everyone dancing, young and old. He paid meticulous attention to details too—a close-up of the Sweet 16 candle in Grandma’s memory, a close-up of the silver stilettos, a close-up of the party favor, the centerpieces, the place settings, the place cards; he did not miss a single detail! All the memories that I wanted to preserve, John Flowers was able to catch it and freeze it in time for me. He is a master storyteller and his photographs convey his brilliant vision!!!
