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!

I recently got engaged and wanted to have photographs taken that could be used for our Save the Date mailings. I am not the most comfortable person in front of a camera, as I tend to be overly critical of my appearance. However, working with Chey was wonderful and I can't say enough about the professionalism that she exhibits and how she was instantly able to make me feel comfortable and relaxed during the entire photo session. What I really appreciated about Chey was that she was very proactive and contacted me well in advance of the day that we had scheduled to shoot the photos and asked me to pick examples of the types of engagement photos and poses that I liked/wasn't a fan of, and also to think about the locations where I would like to have the photos taken. This gave me plenty of time to scout out the best locations in town, and review other engagement photos to see what I thought would work best for us. On the day of the photo session I was a little bummed because the weather wasn't as nice as I would have liked and slowly became more overcast with spotty rain showers. However, Chey really understands lighting and how to still get great results in not so great weather conditions. We went around town to four different locations, each with a different vibe and I feel like Chey captured each PERFECTLY! I had some pretty crazy ideas for poses that I saw online (e.g. a lot of jumping in the air) and Chey indulged me with those shots and I love her for that. I have to say though, some of my favorite photos were actually the ones that she was shooting when we didn't even realize that she was doing it! There are candid shots of my fiancé and I laughing and holding hands that I will treasure forever. I highly recommend Chey as a photographer!!

I have never taken a professional photograph before, maybe when I was a kid but I wanted one to use in online profiles, Linkedin etc. I found Steven and his photography through thumbtack. Since this was my first session I didn't know what to expect but Steven was very nice and calm and walked me through the process. We took all the photos outside and Steven was able to pick good spots outside. I would highly recommend him for anyone looking for portrait photos!

I recently booked Bin Song to capture the moment I proposed to my girlfriend. I had heard this was a trend and wanted to find the right photographer. I found Bin Song’s website and saw she had experience shooting marriage proposals. She was extremely helpful. We discussed the location (Rockefeller Center) and what the best time to be there was for lighting, and what angle I should be in for the best background (I felt like an actor talking to the director on a movie set, it was so cool). She explained that in order to get the best natural shot, my girlfriend could not know she was there - so it was important for me to be in the right place at the right time for the perfect photos. After I proposed and she said “yes”, Bin Song came over to congratulate us and take some portrait photos as a new couple to compliment the proposal ones she had just taken. Her photos were beautiful, catching the total look of surprise and happiness on my fiancee’s face; and, with the ice rink and statue at Rockefeller Center in the background, it looked like something out of a magazine. Bin Song did everything I requested. Before and after photos of the proposal, along with a video of the proposal itself. I would definitely book her again… and have her shoot our wedding.

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 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.

Deva brings her skills and diligence to every thing she does. She is patient and kind, a joy to work with. She listens to your ideas and gave them a try. Her approach to the photo session is like " it's all digital so we can shoot as many as we need to get the right picture". When you are having photo session, you never feel rushed but she also does it in a very efficient manner. She comes up with better ideas using your wishes as a guide. I would recommend her to anyone who likes to have an exceptional photo session experience.

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!

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!

From start to finish Michael Oliver was incredible. We hired him on short notice for our destination wedding in Orlando. His prices were very reasonable for the quality of his work. He is a true artist and his photographs speak for themselves. When he was onsite, he showed up early and made sure to work with us to capture every aspect that was important to us. We had a challenging environment for him to work him but he adapted so well and made himself invisible. He makes his work look so effortless. I literally had no idea that he captured such amazing shots at the time. He came up with really creative ideas on the spot and gave us a gift we will cherish forever. Every time someone looks at our pictures that often comment that they look like they are right out of a wedding magazine. I told Michael and I still stand by it, out of all the vendors we hired for our wedding, he was by far the best decision we made.

Great person and a very skilled photographer. On time, very respectful and genuine. I thought I was asking for too much because once we finished one pose/location, I requested to do/go to another one. I felt bad a kept apologizing for it, but Nick never complained. He always said "oh no problem". I could not have been more pleased with the final photos.

Michael shot a studio portrait of me for my business last year. He made me feel completely at ease and the results were fantastic. It was clear that he wasn't an amateur with a camera, as is the case so much these days, but a real pro who knew how to light and direct. I recommend him without reservation!!

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
