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!
Jim, You have been a most professional and talented photographer. The event pictorials captured not only the company event, but also the joy in the people who attended and you memorialized the venue so well. Thank you so very much. It was hard work putting the event together for sure. Now that the event is over, I am happy to say, in the words of the famous Dorothy Gayle, "There's no place like home." 😊 Have a great holiday season. Teresa
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.
John photographed our wedding at the Philadelphia Wedding Chapel and our reception at Maggiano's Little Italy in Center City, Philadelphia. John did an excellent job capturing our special day and could not have been more pleasant to work with. We hadn't had a chance to meet with him ahead of time, so he came to the event "cold". As soon as we arrived, John immediately sought us out, introduced himself, and began capturing pics of us and our guests. His suggestions were spot on, and both his planned and impromptu pics came out beautifully. As one of our family members who attended the wedding and viewed our pictures said: "That's one of the best wedding photographers we have ever seen! He captured so many great candid photos of everyone - if you hadn't been there and you were going through those photos, you would have wished you had been there having fun with everyone! He also picked the perfect shots for the black and white photos ..." It's clear that John loves what he does and his creativity shows in his pictures. He did a great job. We would highly recommend him to others.
Matthew Porter is by far one of the best photographers I've ever worked with, and I've worked with many. He's very professional and always creates stunning works of art. He is truly passionate about what he does and it shows in his work. He has just relocated not that long ago and he is already missed. Matthew is an unbelievable visionary and has an incredibly unique way of brining his visions, and those of others, to life. I would recommend anyone to work with thus amazing photographer.
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.
He is amazing and an outstanding photographer!
My boyfriend and I decided to get some nice couple photos of us taken, and after some careful research, we found Rachel. We have nothing but compliments for Rachel! Right from the get-go, she was really great at communicating in a timely manner (honestly, I never waited more than maybe 15 minutes to get a response), which we thoroughly appreciated since we decided on a bit of a commute to get our pictures done. The photographers that we found more local to us were either ridiculously expensive or offered low prices with low-quality pictures. Rachel was different. Her work honestly speaks for itself, and it was within our budget. During our session, she was very friendly and professional, and captured a lot of great moments that my boyfriend and I will be able to look back at forever. She sent us the finished pictures surprisingly quickly, and it's clear that they weren't haphazardly done or rushed. Each of them were beautifully edited and are definitely high quality. Without a doubt, I would definitely hire her again if we want pictures done again in the future, and she is definitely a photographer I would recommend to anyone looking to get their pictures done!
David is an excellent photographer! He captured all the special moments at our babyshower effortlessly. We were thrilled with the photos, and the great variety of shots.
Matt was able to schedule me last minute when my first photographer bailed. Steve Buscemi is more photogenic than me, but the headshots Matt took look great. Plus, he made the experience of taking pictures enjoyable. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer.
Bill's work is an extremely skilled and versatile photographer. He covers portraiture, headshots, to commercial and fashion. As a model some of my best work has been with him and has opened doors for me at various agencies. He has a great eye, always made me feel comfortable and is time and professional. I'm looking forward to producing more great work!
I didn't book with Jill, for my wedding because she was already booked, but I have to say that her customer service was AMAZING. She sent me a detailed list of other photographers she recommends, as well as a bride guide, which is a planning workbook, and a list of her preferred vendors. WOW... for someone who is busy and booked for my date, she went WAY beyond the norm. Thanks Jill for helping me out, answering all of my questions, and for pointing me in a few new directions.
Jeff did an amazing job. He arrived before his scheduled time on the day of the event and was very professional. I have seen the work of other professional photographers but Jeff's work was outstanding. He is also very understanding and easy to work with. I will definitely hire him again and would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for professional photography work. Kudos to you Jeff. Keep up the good work.
I hired Julie to photograph my wedding in 2014. Her prices were very competitive and my package included our engagement session. She even drove to State College so my fiancé and I could have a Penn State themed engagement session. On my wedding day, she not only took amazing photos but stayed with me the whole day so I didn't have to worry that all of our special moments wouldn't be captured. I was extremely pleased with the quality of our photos and found that they rivaled the work of other photographers who were far more expensive and offered far fewer personal touches. I would highly recommend her to any future bride!
Erin was so professional, easy going and fun to work with on our wedding day. I'd highly recommend her as a photographer!
Justin did a fantastic job for our baby shower party.. He is going to be our photographer for all of our future events. We would highly recommend Justin not only for his punctuality, professionalism but also for his commitment for work
Vandana did my maternity photoshoot and she made welcoming of our first baby really special for us. She is a very enthusiastic photographer and suggests creative poses with excellent backgrounds. From the time we hired her, she was completely involved in the entire process suggesting the location and clothes that will be best for the shoot. She gave us enough time during the shoot to change and decide things as we wanted. The shoot was once in a lifetime experience for us, and I would recommend others to hire her for once in a lifetime experiences.
I first got in touch with Scott because a friend used him for her event, and the photos were lovely and vibrant. I especially liked how natural the dancing shots looked. Working with Scott and his colleague was wonderful. Scott was responsive, prompt and thoughtful during the lead up to the event, was mindful of our budget and explained all the options well. When the weekend came, he made himself available for additional pictures at our synagogue as well as the main event. The photo booth set up was great - the kids loved it- was well run, and the accompanying scrapbook was adorable and creative. Scott is very professional: he got great shots of all of our guests, and the important moments during the celebration, without being intrusive or having them look too staged. He maneuvered around a relatively small space well. He again was thoughtful and focused in on my 93 year old grandmother (and took some great shots) without me even telling him to do so. The resulting pictures are beautiful, dynamic and perfectly capture he feeling of the day. He was incredibly easy to work with and the results were fantastic. I highly recommend Scott as an amazing photographer to work with!
Stephanie is awesome! She responds quickly. We took our engagement pictures at my grandfather's house and she was very nice and personable with me, my fiancé, my mother and my grandpa. She took sweet and creative photos and spent extra time getting all the shots we wanted. And they turned out amazing! She even brought some of her own props! If you are looking for a reasonably priced quality photographer this is it.
Donte is a great photographer. He's both professional and has a great eye. He got us back our photos way sooner than we expected. Every picture was exactly what we wanted. I would highly recommend Donte to friends and family!
Rich was an amazing photographer! He captured pictures of our daughter that we will cherish forever! We give him 5 stars!
