The entire experience with Mary was really great from start to finish. She was friendly, professional and most importantly, genuinely passionate about what she was doing. Mary was punctual and she was immediately polite, reassuring and excited. We took plenty of photos at City Hall, while walking to the subway, during the ride and then finally at Central Park with some great fall colours in the background. The pictures came out great and we loved talking to Mary and Ali, who were courteous and professional at all times. Mary was really generous with her pricing and took into account the fact that it was just my wife and I. Unlike a lot of quotes from other photographers, hers was one of the few that really reflected this fact. We highly recommend Mary.
Joe was wonderful to work with. He arrived early, and was set up and ready for our event before the start-time. He made his way throughout our crowd of employee and took a lovely mix of portraits and candids. He managed to capture every employee in a few pictures. They turned out beautifully, and the team is so excited to have pictures to remember the night. Quick turn-around time too. Thanks so much!
Unfortunately, Thumbtack only gives me the ability to rate on a scale of 1-5 stars... for Maria, there should be an option to rate her 100 stars!! She was so incredibly communicative and invested in the success of the event she was photographing. While it sounds corny, I could feel that she genuinely cared about us and our guests, and about capturing the moments as well as she could. Her communication and involvement aside, she is also an amazing photographer. All of her photos were of the highest quality, and she captured various moments with all of the 80+ guests we had for our party. I could not recommend Maria with enough enthusiasm and conviction... if you're looking for a caring professional to capture the special moments of an event you're holding, then there is NO other option- Maria is the photographer for the job!!
Alex was the consummate professional to work with from start to finish. He answered every question I had and was very flexible with my schedule (even having to reschedule once on my short notice). I hired Alex to take both my self- and family portraits for my recent graduation at Columbia and I don't believe any other professional could have captured this very special moment in my life any better. Alex was very professional and so friendly throughout the process that my family and I had a wonderful time walking through campus taking multiple shots. Alex even finalized my photo portfolio the same day and I greatly appreciated such a swift and short turnaround! I will be hiring Alex for future photo shoots and know that I am in great hands for amazingly, high quality photos.
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!
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.
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 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
I hired Jeff to take pictures for my surprise proposal to my girlfriend (now fiance). I chose to propose at Central Park - Bethesda Fountain - a location that Jeff recommended. The whole experience working with Jeff was a sheer pleasure. Where should I begin - Jeff is extremely professional to work with but more importantly very flexible and extremely pleasant. Jeff allowed me to guide the process while providing guidance having worked at this location before (he provided detailed maps with spots where we should stand to make me familiar with the location). The day of the shoot, he was on time and came with the right equipment. He captured the best candid shot of my now fiance gasping for breathe when I got down on one knee. He then proceeded to take pictures with family and friends. To my surprise, he then took me and my fiance for our own engagement shoot (I wasn't expecting that) - we must have posed in 5 different locations and he must have taken over 400 pictures - mind you, I only hired him for one hour. After the shoot, he sent us a few sneak peaks that we could share with our family and friends and on social media. All these have been impeccable. He is collating the best out of the ~400 and plans to send them to us in the coming weeks; I cannot wait to see them all. Overall, I couldn't have had a better photographer to work with on such an important day of my life and my fiance feels the same way. I will hire Jeff again in a heartbeat. Thank you, Jeff.
We hired Marijana to take photos of our wedding ceremony at the NYC City Hall. She was a true pleasure to work with - very patient throughout the entire (lengthy) process, and even willing to cross the Brooklyn Bridge for some post-wedding shots with the NY skyline. Marijana doesn't have years of professional training or experience, but she has a good eye and you can tell she's very passionate about her work and relationships with her clients. To me, that is really the difference between Marijana and other photographers!
I asked Kevin and Rebecca to take some headshots for me and the results were amazing. They were super easy to work with and understood exactly what I wanted. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for photographers.
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.
Chris was great to work with! I was nervous about my headshot because previously I had a bad experience with different photographer and ended up with photos I hated. Chris made me feel at ease at our very first meeting. During the shoot, he kept me laughing and feeling myself, which is how I ended up with a headshot that represents me. He also would show me some of the shots in camera and ask me what I thought about them. This made me feel like I was also in charge of the final product. I recommend Chris to anyone who wants a great experience, a personable photographer, and a photo that represents their personality.
I enjoyed my shoot with Hans. He was very patient. I showed Hans pics of what I wanted to recreate and he said we couldn't do some of them (use of props, etc) but with the help of my friend that I brought with me --we were able to recreate most of the poses, shots I hoped for. This was a shoot for my birthday so I wanted to get really creative --I think Hans is more of a family portrait photographer. Either way--beautiful pictures. Thank you!
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!
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.
5 stars isn't enough to give Andrea- super attentive, detailed photographer with a great eye on detail and very artistic. Don't hestitate at all to hire her- we will definetely be using her for future events!!!
Laura was amazing! She took the time to get every shot just right. While other photographers might keep shooting and rush a bit, Laura slowed everthing down until the shot was perfect; lighting, position, vibe, etc. I felt in excellent hands with Laura. I really relaxed, which is key in regard to getting good shots that look like me. She made me feel that her goal was to make me comfortable in order to get the best shots possible! She is a sweetheart. She’s been great at doing light retouching. Nothing drastic. My agents are thrilled, and so am I. I will definitely go back to Laura!!!
Cristian was our wedding photographer. We had outdoor shootings at Liberty State Park,outdoor shootings were outstanding,he captured very natural photos that we wanted . We met him at Liberty State Park , he was very punctual , actually he was there 30 min before . He prepared photo book and gave us USB with more than 300 photos in short time 2 weeks and we gave the complete payment after he gave all photos .Price for his service is very budget friendly and we didn't expect to have that many great picture with this affordable price but we are really happy with our wedding picture , Cristian's service and the price.
Elvin is an outstanding photographer, truly empathic, professional, detail oriented and quick in response. Highly recommending for all kinds of events, private shoots and campaigns! Thank you so much!
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.
