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.

Unfortunately, Thumbtack only gives me the ability to rate on a scale of 1-5 stars... for Maria, there should be an option to rate her 100 stars!! She was so incredibly communicative and invested in the success of the event she was photographing. While it sounds corny, I could feel that she genuinely cared about us and our guests, and about capturing the moments as well as she could. Her communication and involvement aside, she is also an amazing photographer. All of her photos were of the highest quality, and she captured various moments with all of the 80+ guests we had for our party. I could not recommend Maria with enough enthusiasm and conviction... if you're looking for a caring professional to capture the special moments of an event you're holding, then there is NO other option- Maria is the photographer for the job!!

Joe was wonderful to work with. He arrived early, and was set up and ready for our event before the start-time. He made his way throughout our crowd of employee and took a lovely mix of portraits and candids. He managed to capture every employee in a few pictures. They turned out beautifully, and the team is so excited to have pictures to remember the night. Quick turn-around time too. Thanks so much!

Stop wasting your time looking for other photographers—Lizzie is your girl! She produced incredible photos (much more than we were expecting), had a great location recommendation, and she was just generally a pleasure to work with. I couldn’t recommend her more and I personally can’t wait for my next excuse to hire her again!

Tina and I had a 90-minute headshot session at the International Center of Photogrsphy in midtown Manhattan. I asked Tina to engage a makeup artist to prepare me for the shoot; while I think she did a good job, she could not stay for the shoot itself. The last two photographers with whom I have worked had theirs stay for the duration, and it was helpful to have the makeup rechecked and touched up - especially for a woman my age. I think Tina is a really good photographer - and an artist in her own right. But sometimes her focus on expression and composition means that she doesn’t always see the details of her subject. There were numerous shots that she selected for my review that I couldn't use because a stray lock of hair was falling into my eye. I am not the one looking through the lens, and I can't see what the photographer does. One word, and I could easily have fixed it. We also spent the majority of the session with me wearing the same blouse - even though we had selected 2 additional wardrobe changes. As a result, the number of usable photos in those two changes was somewhat limited. We did come up with a number of really good headshots; Tina retouched my favorites herself, and I am having two of them reproduced as I write this. I appreciated the energy and encouragement that Tina brought to her work, and I would recommend her work to my fellow actors.

I searched for a photographer online and did my research by looking at reviews as well as the websites of several photographers. I was impressed with Jovana’s photos on her website so I booked her for headshots as well as some dance poses. I’m so glad I did all that because Jovana was an absolute pleasure to work with. So professional and made me feel at ease. The images came beautiful and I have so many great shots to choose from. I couldnt be happier!

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 was amazing! She took the time to get every shot just right. While other photographers might keep shooting and rush a bit, Laura slowed everthing down until the shot was perfect; lighting, position, vibe, etc. I felt in excellent hands with Laura. I really relaxed, which is key in regard to getting good shots that look like me. She made me feel that her goal was to make me comfortable in order to get the best shots possible! She is a sweetheart. She’s been great at doing light retouching. Nothing drastic. My agents are thrilled, and so am I. I will definitely go back to Laura!!!

Randy is a one of a kind photographer. He fit right in with our family. We felt like he was a guest of ours and by the end of the day he was...he didnt push us or get in the way of our celebrating. We felt comfortable and his pictures came out AMAZING. He was so fast to get back to us before and after the wedding with teasers. We will recommend him to anyone and everyone!

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.

Justin gets all of our accolades! Absolutely fabulous and talented photographer to work with! He covered our wedding; Church ceremony as well as the reception at the Waterside restaurant on the Hudson overlooking Manhattan. The photos are magical! He arrives early to scout out each location well before the participants and guests arrive. His framing and composition great, imaginative. And one of the most impressive of his aspects is the talent to blend in with everybody unobtrusively, comfortably! You almost don’t realize you've got a photographer snapping away at your event! After printing all of the photos, the colors are all nice and saturated and there’s a great selection, he accommodated all of our photo requests and a lot more! This guy is the best! 10x star review from a very rough critic who happens to be in the business, I’m a film editor! Thanks Justin!

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.

We hired Kaushal for our family portraits session and are amazed by the quality of the pictures. He is very courteous, professional and amazingly skilled. With his quick minimal setup, he created pictures which one can't tell whether they were taken in a studio or our backyard. I highly recommend him and certainly going to hire him again for family events.

The best part about working with him is how passionate he is about what he does! Not only does he go to art school for photography, but he loves taking photos and creating new work during his free time. It's amazing how quickly he can edit, and then give you back an extremely high quality photo. I've modeled for him for ad-style photos and portraits, and I've never been disappointed. So next time you're looking for a photographer, make sure you contact Brad because he's a hard worker and one of the kindest people I've ever met!!

Emily is one of the top photographers I've worked with. I hired her to shoot at a fundraiser gala and was extremely pleased. Here's me with two of my guests – isn't she great at capturing the moment? Also, Emily had the photos to me in extremely quick fashion. What a great experience!
