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.

Had a blast with Maria -- and with my 12 other friends. We recreated 80s glam shots for my 30th birthday, and she delivered. Thanks, Maria, for indulging us for an afternoon!

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!

We love Emily. I hired her for a family portrait photo session and she worked well with my toddler and newborn baby. She is very professional and pleasant person, she listened and gave suggestions of how we can have our photos taken. My husband and I were both happy with the photos she delivered after 2 days. We will definitely hire her again for more photo sessions in the future.

A quality photographer is more than simply clicking buttons on a fancy camera. John is an experienced photographer who is able to utilize the number of events and portraits he's done to capture unexpected moments. When hiring someone for a service, I look for honesty, professionalism, punctuality, quality, and skill. John exceeds expectations regarding all aspects, especially punctuality because he shows up early not simply on time. Being familiar to locations is crucial to photography since the essence of a photo is not only to capture the individuals in it but the scenery and mood behind it. When shooting my portrait, John was able to make me feel comfortable and guide me to various poses as I am no professional model. He provides quality photos in a timely manner as I was eager to see my portraits. I have received numerous compliments on my portrait shots. I highly recommend John because he's professional, skilled, friendly, and personable. He is upfront about his price quote, no hidden tricks!

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.

Hassan is an amazing photographer. Very skilled, extremely accommodating, and very pleasant in his manners. He has been taking very beautiful pictures of extended family for years at many occasions/events such as weddings, reunions, and birthday parties. He has created many galleries for us to share online and keep the memories of good times alive. I am in particular grateful for him taking a very beautiful portrait of my mom and pop shortly before my dad passed away and provided me with a large color print that I have hanging on the wall of my bedroom reminding me of my late dad every day. I highly recommend Hassan to others.

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.

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!

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.

Nancy was fantastic! She was very punctual in responding to all of my questions, as I planned this from across the country. She arrived on time, wrangled a large group of us to create an amazing family portrait that spans 4 generations. Her work was beautiful and delivered via an online gallery just days after our event.

From start to finish Michael Oliver was incredible. We hired him on short notice for our destination wedding in Orlando. His prices were very reasonable for the quality of his work. He is a true artist and his photographs speak for themselves. When he was onsite, he showed up early and made sure to work with us to capture every aspect that was important to us. We had a challenging environment for him to work him but he adapted so well and made himself invisible. He makes his work look so effortless. I literally had no idea that he captured such amazing shots at the time. He came up with really creative ideas on the spot and gave us a gift we will cherish forever. Every time someone looks at our pictures that often comment that they look like they are right out of a wedding magazine. I told Michael and I still stand by it, out of all the vendors we hired for our wedding, he was by far the best decision we made.
