I cannot say enough great things about our experience with Mary!! Mary and Ali photographed our intimate NYC wedding - following us from our hotel, to city hall, to our evening rooftop reception. They asked us from the beginning to think of them as friends rather than photographers, and by the end of the day they were great friends indeed!! They attended to every detail, guided us to get the best shot, and made us and our guests feel effortlessly glamorous and comfortable. They were both extremely professional, clearly talented, and responsive to our preferences. It was obvious that they cared as much about our day as we did! I highly, highly recommend their services and would hire them again in a heartbeat!

My girlfriend hinted (like beating me over the head with a 2”x4”) that she hoped a photographer would be around to capture our impending proposal. So I did what any 21st century guy would do and hit the internet. I emailed several photographers in the tri-state area, all getting back to me with varying fees and availability. I found Neil Blake on Thumbtack. His personal website showed his experience, so I explained to him that I would like for him to secretly photograph my proposal. I detailed that I had hired a caricaturist (if you’re reading this and also are in the market for a caricaturist, look no further than Jessica du Preez) that would be drawing me on one knee proposing to my girlfriend though we would be sitting next to each other on a park bench. He agreed, and we were set. The big day was a beautiful October Sunday in Hoboken. So perfect, in fact, that there were literally dozens of people taking pictures (with what looked to me like high-end cameras). My girlfriend and I walked around the general area that I had laid out for the caricaturist to set up and for Neil to be ready to find us. I literally had no idea what Neil (or my caricaturist looked like), and so I wasn’t sure if people were taking pictures of us or of the scenery (and it turned out that it was Neil taking a few of those pictures, he really did a wonderful job at being so discreet). Once I found my caricaturist and the drawing was in progress, he would walk by non-chalantly (pretending to be one of these everyday photographers enjoying the beautiful day) and marvel at how well the drawing was coming along and ask my caricaturist if it would be alright if he could take a picture while she sketched and ask us if he could take our picture (of course it was okay! But my girlfriend was still not entirely in the know. It was all for her, and it was perfect. Neil was fantastic. I can’t believe how they went above and beyond to really play the parts that I asked them to play). He walked away and took some other discreetly long-distance shots, shots from behind, everything. You can really tell the entire story from the pictures – leading up to the caricature, during the caricature, after she said yes. And I think that’s more than I could have hoped for when I hired him to be our photographer. After the gig was up, he brought us around for 30 minutes or so posing us against the skyline and taking literally hundreds of pictures. I really feel like I got a lot for my money, and I don’t see how I would do it any differently (and that goes for not only Neil, but also Jessica). I am still blown away by how flawless the day turned out for me and my now fiancée – partly due to the fact that I did not know what Neil (nor my caricaturist, Jessica du Preez, for that matter (whom I also highly recommend, but that is for another review)) looked like, partly because I was hoping for true perfection, and partly due to the stress of getting several pieces (timing, two people (caricaturist and photographer) working together that have never even met, etc) into place without my girlfriend knowing (okay, so she knew it was coming. But she did not know how and what I had planned, so she was still very much in the dark). At the onset of this review, I had hoped that it would be more about the professionalism and expertise of Neil and less about me and the proposal, but let my excitement and joy be a testament to him. For any function at all, consider hiring Neil Blake to capture the story. He will do a superb job.

Joe Jenkins is an expert in what he does! He was punctual which was extremely important to me being that my event took place near the WTC and it was very early in the morning. He is very thorough, he followed up my phone calls, text messages and emails promptly. He has a very friendly and warm personality (unlike the typical annoying photographers). His quality work speaks volumes! I received outstanding quality images in a timely manner. He is truly a professional and you can tell he works extremely hard (especially behind the scenes) to provide the best images possible.

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!

I cannot even express my gratitude for Cheyanna ! Her work is absolutely stunning and blew my mind! I received a lot of quotes before making my decision to hire her but her website images and work is what made me decide for Cheyanna. The price is absolutely fair and she spent all day with us! I have used other photographers in the past but no one has ever been this responsive and understanding. Not only did the photos come way sooner than expected but she also let me know when which is something I appreciate even more. She also sent a sneak peak! I never had anyone do that before and this was even more appreciated. I had other photographers where I constantly had to ask about when my photos would come back and Cheyanna was the opposite! She truly impressed us with her work and communication throughout. Her product is first class and it was also great to spend the day with her as she made us feel comfortable throughout. Don’t even think about hiring someone else and save you the hassle !!!

Steven did an amazing job! You can tell that he's very dedicated to his work. Our first phone conversation he said "if you don't look good and I don't look good" and I've never heard a photographer say that. Most of the photographers that I've met are doing their job for the money, but I can't say the same about Steven. He spoke about has craft with passion. He made me feel so comfortable, and he knows exactly what he's doing. If anyone is looking for a photographer who specializes in headshots, reach out to Steven immediately, you will not be disappointed. Thank you so much Steven!! I'll definitely be recommending you to all my fellow actors.

We hired Ali to photograph our wedding and not only was he extremely professional throughout, but he was incredibly pleasant and congenial. He was a joy to work with, he went above and beyond what we could've asked of him, and by the end of the day, he honestly felt like family. Not only is he a great photographer, but he's a great person, and anyone would be well served by his photography skills.

Lizzie was amazing! The entire experience of our holiday photos was great from initial contact through the final images. Lizzie is prompt and thorough in her communications. She is very thoughtful in her preparations as well giving consideration to location and bringing some great props to make the photos extra special. She was great with our 1 year old and our large, stubborn dog! We plan to use Lizzie for all of our family photography needs in the future and would recommend everyone else do so as well!

Tom took engagement shots for my fiancee and I and we couldnt be happier with them. He does incredible things with a camera! He is able to make anyone feel comfortable being photographed and is amazing at capturing natural moments both in and out of the studio. The location he picked to take our pictures was perfect and the way he shot us was very creative - not your typical boring engagement pictures. Our friends and family cant stop talking about these pictures and we cant recommend Tom highly enough!

Kevin is a great photographer- if your looking for your photos to capture moments in time that have emotion and tell a story then do not hesitate and have Kevin be your photographer !! I was so busy with all the guests pulling me in so many directions at my milestone Birthday Party that I could not get a pulse of what was happening - now I know exactly how my party turned out - not by what all the guest told me, but more so, by all the photos that Kevin took-from the candid shots to the posed shots I can see and feel all the love- laughs, and good times all were having!! Another bonus is Kevin gets it- you tell him what your looking for and he makes it happen and he is responsible and a gentleman!! Your the best Kevin!!

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!

Jenna took photos for our 3 year old twins' birthday party! We booked her only a few days before and it couldn't have gone smoother. She arrived on time, jumped right in, asked up front for any specifics/must have shots and just kept going until the last minute. Photos turned out fantastic! Prior to the party, we had so few great family photos. Now we have plenty to choose from to fill some frames around the apartment! Photos arrived shortly after the party so not a long wait either. Definitely recommend Jenna and will definitely use her for our future 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!

JUNE 30, 2015 was our wedding day, not only that but it was the celebration of our 8 year anniversary with our closest friends and family. Raul captured so many beautiful pictures and I can feel the feeling I had at that exact moment when I look at them. He captured not only pictures of us but our family/friends drinking and laughing. We enjoyed working with him and he's so easy going. We can't wait to see all of the photos!!! THANK YOU SO MUCH RAUL.

I am so glad I found Natalia. As a family we have worked with many photographers in the past, but Natalia is special in many ways: she is good at capturing the special bond among the family, she also takes extra time to scout the venue before the session, she is also so responsive. We are super impressed with the photos and would love to hire her in the future to document our family's growth. I recommend anyone who is looking for naturally beautiful pictures to consider Natalia.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
