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.
My girlfriend hinted (like beating me over the head with a 2x4) 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 youre 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 wasnt 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 cant 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 thats 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 dont 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 was extremely professional and responsive. I have worked with many photographers before and Joe was definitely the most "on-top-of-it"! Besides being easy to work with, the work product was amazing. Very clear and professional head shots. The subjects of his photos said he made them feel comfortable.
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!
Maria was beyond a pleasure to work with! She is a seasoned photographer with years of professional experience as well as top of the line equipment and resources. Maria made me feel super comfortable and took her time to walk me through all aspects of the shoot explicitly which made the whole experience an amazing one. I have worked with many photographers for various reasons, and Maria is hands down one of my favorites. I would recommend her services to any and anyone looking to get professional photos taken for any occasion!
I don't know where to begin when describing how great Cheyanna is. I researched and spoke with at least a dozen different photographers when planning my surprise engagement photo session and Cheyanna was by far the most professional, talented, and friendly of all of them. She worked with me over several weeks to plan the perfect surprise engagement. She was always responsive whenever I called or texted and always helpful. The quality of her work is unparalleled and my fiancée and I are now ecstatic that our engagement was captured so beautifully. End your search for a photographer, hire Cheyanna.
Never had such authentic and beautiful photos taken of me as those taken by Steve. Ended up paying more to order additional photos, I loved them all so much and could not narrow down to just a few favorites. FYI I am 47 & terribly shy and awkward in front of a camera. Steve was extremely professional, patient and persistent and gave me great direction to get the shots. He has an intuitive instinct, high expectations for his work and the greatest integrity. So much so that at first, the pictures weren't "working" according to him, so he retreated and booked a studio where we got our amazing shots. Most photographers would not have spent the extra time, would have just ploughed through. Not Steve. Consider yourself lucky if you can book with Steve. My guess is he won't be available for thumbtack booking for long. THX Steven!! You are amazing!!!
Excellent experience and great family 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.
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 did an outstanding job with our two bulldogs. Sadly, our youngest bulldog will not be with us very much longer, so not only did Tom do the shoot on short notice, but he sent me the photos ASAP so I would have them in time for family photo cards. He was patient, caring, spent a great deal of time with them and was able to remain calm for everyone in a stressful situation, which was great for the dogs. It was total chaos. They were not their usual selves. They were so excited to be there; it was total mayhem, i.e. hair, drool and trying to keep them seated long enough to get the perfect photos. He provided us with wonderful photos to treasure of both our bullies, but especially our beloved Dozer. Would I recommend him? YES, and I have already done so to everyone I know. If I could give him a 10 star rating, I would.
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.
Alex is a talented and professional photographer and great person to work with. Always punctual, helpful and responsive, it's been an absolute pleasure to work with him on our company portfolio, he has captured our projects perfectly and the end results are fabulous! His skills in both shooting and editing are rare and top class and therefore I'm delighted to recommend him!
He was quick in the photo shoot and uploading the edited pictures. He also responded very quickly and was able to get me in ASAP. This was really helpful because I needed the photos for a work deadline. He was personable and easy to work with. I would use him again the next time I want to hire a photographer. The pictures came out well.
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!
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.
What an amazing time we had for my brothers surprise birthday party. The photo booth was the highlight of the night. Everyone enjoyed the great selection of props as well as the amazing backdrop. The service was excellent and the pics are clear, crisp, and bright. Of all the photo booth company's we came across Lew's photography fit well into our budget. That's why we're going to recommend them to our family and friends and will continue to hire them for our future events.
I have worked with several photographers in the past but have decided to keep going back to Justin. I have done two photoshoots with Justin and was very pleased with the way both sets of pictures came out. He definitely has a good eye for photography - he sees the big picture but also pays attention to the details. He is also a great guy and easy to work with....flexible and responds quickly. I look forward to working with him again.
We absolutely loved our entire experience with Natalia. She responded very quickly, and stayed in touch after we confirmed the booking, sending us suggestions for the locations, and inquiring about our ideas and themes for the shoot. Her communications before the meeting show her genuine interest in ensuring her clients get what they want and need out of the shoot. It was very easy to spend an hour with Natalia, while taking pictures. There were no awkward moments, and the setting for the photos happened very naturally. Natalia is also really great at giving you a quick sneak peek at the photos during the session, that way if you see that you loved the composition, but hate your face or pose in it, you can quickly re-do it. No later than 12hrs after the shoot, Natalia responded with 120 proofs, of which we could choose 40 to be retouched, and available for download. She returned the final, downloadable photos 3 days after we finalized our selection, which is super fast for photographers. Because Natalia lets you peek at the photos during the shoot and select your favorites out of the preselected 120, you end up with 40 photos that you absolutely love, and you can use all of them (no blinking or hair in your mouth). Overall, we highly recommend Natalia for her professionalism and great photo quality, and hope to have a chance to work with her again!
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.
