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!

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!

Me and my girlfriend went to a broadway show. Got out a little late but she was able to follow us taking picture until I was able to propose at time square. My now fiance didn't know a thing. Great photographer. Great pictures and just what I needed.

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.

I just went on Google type in Photography for pictures for my son which is only 7 yrs. old for acting and modeling so you all can see this is my sons career so this has to be very important to us, I had so many response from all, soon as I spoke to Carlos I knew even though at the time didn't do any research like rip off or bbb I knew he was the one. He is an honest man just by talking to him on the phone and of course I did speak to other people but its all about the Photographer and how he treats you and doesn't take advantage of. This man Carlos Alva I give you A+ for manners, respect , great work and most of all you honestly Thank you so much Carlos from Black Hill Photography for just being who you are the best work and because of you my son is getting so much work in acting I have to hire a attorney and manager. I will always be coming back to you you are the best. Deana Falco New Jersey

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!

Jeff is an exceptional photographer. family pictures can be a bit overwhelming especially with 2 kids under 5, but he made the whole process smooth. He gave good direction, was pretty patient and outgoing with the kids. The pictures are beautifully candid, you can feel the emotions in them. Can't wait to work with him again!

I honestly cannot say enough about Marijana and how great she is. My fiance and I, originally from North Carolina, were visiting New York City for the weekend and wanted engagement/portrait type photos while visiting; so we hired Marijana just a few weeks prior to our visit. From the time we met Marijana, she made the session and process so easy for us! We absolutely loved it! And LOVE how the photos turned out. She was so easy to work with! Her attention to detail and finding the perfect light made our photos perfect and we are so pleased with our experience. Not only that, we also feel like we made a new friend in New York City! Thank you so much, Marijana! We now have pictures that will last a lifetime! -Jenna and Erik

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.

Kevin was wonderful to work with! Very easy to set up the family photo shoot. He arrived on time with all his equipment. He was very patient and engaging with my three little ones (5, 3, & 2 years old) as well as the dog! He captured everything I had asked him too and delivered the pictures on time! Such a relief to not have to chase a photographer down to get your photos. Thank you Kevin for taking such perfect family photos of us at our neighborhood NYC spots. We will forever remember our time here thanks to you!

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.

Chris was great to work with! I was nervous about my headshot because previously I had a bad experience with different photographer and ended up with photos I hated. Chris made me feel at ease at our very first meeting. During the shoot, he kept me laughing and feeling myself, which is how I ended up with a headshot that represents me. He also would show me some of the shots in camera and ask me what I thought about them. This made me feel like I was also in charge of the final product. I recommend Chris to anyone who wants a great experience, a personable photographer, and a photo that represents their personality.

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!

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!!!

She also was able to suggest some locations for our session which was great since we are new to the area. Our photos were beautiful! And the price was great too! I couldn't be happier with our new family pictures. Thank you Nina!

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.

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.
