Mary and her partner took excellent photographs, and for the price, it was truly an exceptional value! Some of the photos were truly artistic. I feel I need to put it some constructive criticism for shooting a religious wedding. First let me reiterate how incredibly NICE Mary and her partner were! However, she stood in the aisle at the front of the Church for nearly the entire duration and it was highly inappropriate for a Catholic wedding. Even though Mary and her partner were professional photographers who gave us a terrific product, it was commented on by many at the service, including the priest how disruptive it was to wear such casual clothing, and to stand near the alter even when not taking photos. Mary and her partner have TREMENDOUS TALENT, and are extremely nice, but you must instruct them on proper protocol at a Church wedding, and how a Catholic wedding is a reverential event, and they must not stand in the aisle for the duration, nor take photos so close to the priest when he is saying prayers. Although I remember none of it, of course, I watched a video, and yes, it was intrusive. But they are GREAT photographers & of course they will learn about religious weddings going forward. Highly recommend! Will use them again!

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!

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!

Jon was an absolutely wonderful photographer for our Sweet 16 Celebration. Extremely professional throughout the experience, from booking to the final moments of the event. Jon followed up with me from first contact, reached out a few days before to confirm details and asked great questions that helped him understand what exactly we were looking for. Our guests all commented on how he conducted himself during our party, he seemed to know exactly where to be at the right time to capture the moments that meant so much...the toddlers playing together, interactions between the guests, moments of laughter, great shots of the teens dancing, etc. Jon works a little bit differently than most photographers I have dealt with in the past. Typically, I found they focused more on selling post-processing and albums, etc. Jon doesn't take this approach. Instead, he captures the event and sends you all of your photos by Dropbox and/or CD. There isn't any extra fees involved AND, due to the fact that he has an amazing eye for capturing moments, you get amazing photos, straight off the camera. I love this approach, since our guest of honor desired to have photos to post on social media as well as print on her own, and wanted to share them with family who were unable to attend the event, there wasn't anything preventing that...or consequently, costing us $$$ to do this. We own the photos and have complete liberty to share them however, wherever. The savings with this approach is tremendous in comparison to the typical contracts photographers offer, and in today's world of digital media, it provides us the format to have every picture available, and allows us to print off physical photos at any photo kiosk we choose. Quite a few guests from our party have contacted me about Jon and are looking for him to capture their events; I know I will not be needing Thumbtack any longer when I need a photographer in the New Jersey area. I cannot say enough about the positive experience and perfect fit we found with Jon for our photography needs.

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!!!

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!

We hired Marijana to take photos of our wedding ceremony at the NYC City Hall. She was a true pleasure to work with - very patient throughout the entire (lengthy) process, and even willing to cross the Brooklyn Bridge for some post-wedding shots with the NY skyline. Marijana doesn't have years of professional training or experience, but she has a good eye and you can tell she's very passionate about her work and relationships with her clients. To me, that is really the difference between Marijana and other photographers!

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.

Jenna was an excellent photographer for my son's communion. She was professional and on point with photographing the most special moments. She captured what was happening without breaking the laughter for a "pose". I'm so happy with the pictures. She was great with the kids and all of our invited guests. I'm thrilled that she was available for my event. I would recommend her with my full confidence. Cheers!

We partnered for a shoot at Central Park and connected immediately. She's full of ideas, willing to collaborate, and super chill to shoot with. As a blogger, it's important to find photographers who you vibe with to capture the shots. She's definitely one of the best I've ever partnered with--super quick to provide the images back to you and someone I wouldn't hesitate to partner with again.

Chris is a talented new photographer who is generous with his time and flexible in his approach. I believe photgraphing my family was his first experience working with small children. He juggled their energy with ease and enjoyed the chaos of working to capture the essence of our busy family. We got great shots out of the session.

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!

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!!!

I recently started a new job and needed a new headshot. Unfortunately my company didn’t offer these services in-house. A friend recommended Elizabeth, and not having had any real experience with a professional photographer I was a bit nervous (and I was like 20 minutes late to my appointment). Well, when all was said and done, I have to say Elizabeth was very compassionate and extremely professional. And one of the best parts was I was able to download my headshots the next day in time to include in a PowerPoint for a client presentation. My boss when seeing my headshot even complimented me and asked where I got it done. Overall, I had a great experience with Elizabeth and would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking for a headshot.

Bill's work is an extremely skilled and versatile photographer. He covers portraiture, headshots, to commercial and fashion. As a model some of my best work has been with him and has opened doors for me at various agencies. He has a great eye, always made me feel comfortable and is time and professional. I'm looking forward to producing more great work!
