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!

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!

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.

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.

Lizzie was great for our daughter's 1st birthday. She was on time, even stayed a little extra and goes over the top with responsiveness and feedback. There are a lot of amateur photographers competing for your business, I found Lizzie goes over the top for her clients and delivers some incredible shots. Pose, natural, journalistic, all types were covered in her photos. Would recommend and use again in the future.

Verified review

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.

We hired Dag to take pictures at our wedding since we really liked his aesthetic as demonstrated by the pictures on his website. He did not disappoint. Almost all of the pictures he took were very good with respect to composition and quality. The remainder were outstanding. He gave us all of the pictures within a week. It was a great experience especially when compared to another photographer we hired for our engagement.

Philicia was so friendly and sweet, my family loved her! The pictures were really crisp and clear and she caught everything! My family and I laughed over and over at the candids and I loved how beautiful everyone looked. I loved every image of my birthday party and am really happy I went with her. Brilliant photographer!

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!

Elizabeth was amazing to work with from start to finish! She really cared about what my vision was and was very flexible in setting up a time for the photo shoot. It was cold and rainy on the day we planned and she was still willing to meet us and even came up with some great ideas to make the rain part of the whole story. The photos came out beautifully! Elizabeth was a pleasure to deal with and is an extremely talented photographer. I could not recommend her more highly!

I have worked with both Michelle and Towfiq. They are by far the best photographers I have had the pleasure of working with. I have had a few portraits taken by the lovely Towfiq, and they are one of the best photos of me that I have seen. They are hands down the best photographers I have worked with, and they really have an eye for capturing the life and soul of the people and scenery they are working with. I am very excited to see what Wandermore Photography will bring! I love you guys and hope to see more works from you two!!!
