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 have really enjoyed working with Denise. Our project seems to never end because she's great at what she does and we keep adding new items for her to photograph. We are so excited to have finally found a local photographer that we can use for all of our product photography needs. We would recommend Denise to anyone needing product photography!

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!

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!

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.

I hired Dag to photograph a corporate event. He was great to work with. I liked the pictures so much that I went on to use him for all the headshots on our company's website. I would hire him again and feel very confident in recommending him to anyone looking for an event or portrait photographer.

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!

Can't say this with enough enthusiasm and gratitude, but working with Luc was PHENOMENAL! From the get-go, Luc is fantastically professional, easy-going, and thoughtful (a true saint especially for entertaining and attentively supporting my multiple questions, ideas and correspondences during the planning process.) Pre-event to post-event, Luc's enthusiasm and sincerity in his engagement was so refreshing to work with. He showed up extra early to calibrate with my team and the space, and also generously stayed later when our event went over-time. As a golden creative professional, Luc's a TRUE ARTIST. You would think that there are limits to how fascinating a standard presentation/networking event can be when it comes to photography... With that said, Luc's got an innate poetic eye and intentional pronounced vision for story-telling. Our event photos came out beyond expectations - in the energy, emotions and moments that were expressively captured and translated through his lens. In a heartbeat, we'll be recommending Luc to folks and will be returning to collaborate with him on multiple events within our pipeline. As a start-up solidifying our brand and growth through these events, we couldn't be happier to have found a video/photo artist who can so intimately understand our evolving vision, but who also brings his own unique vision and sensibilities to help propel our aesthetic identity forward. Much respect to ya Luc!

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!

An absolutely Amazing experience working with Jovana . I was visiting New York and was very interested to take some professional shots as a memory to this lovely city, Jovana helped me to capture my visit beyond my expectations, she is a true artist and master of her work. Emphasis on Artist! she takes outdoor photos to a whole new level. I have never had so much fun taking photos as I did with Jovana. The photos were just beyond anything I could have imagined.

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.

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.

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.

My husband and I hired Deva to be our wedding photographer. We couldn’t be happier with how our wedding photos came out. They were gorgeous! She made us look great! My first impression of Deva is friendly, warm, and dependable. Prior to our wedding, Deva spent time visualizing our special day by surveying the place of ceremony, reception venue, plus helping us find charming spots for our wedding portraits. And on the wedding day, in spite of the heat and humidity Deva worked really hard for us. Our guests commented how professional and dedicated Deva was. Deva also shot our beautiful engagement portraits. She went above and beyond to make sure we had a wide variety of poses/backdrops to choose from and that the lighting for each shot was perfect. We had a lot of fun during our engagement photo shoot! All we can say is we loved working with Deva and we love her work!

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.
