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.
Neil is the one!!! He was superb:). We were looking for a photographer to photograph 22 grandchildren, and 5 couples, as a large group and as individual families as well. The children range from 8 months to 17 years. The average age was 8 years old, mostly boys - imagine the noise level and energy in the room!!! Neil kept his cool, didn't get nervous the entire time. He laughed with the kids, he kept suggesting different shots and ideas and didn't stop snapping till the session was over. Pictures came out REALLY nice, and we now have over 250 shots to enjoy. We will definitely book Neil again, and I suggest anyone else looking for a photographer, book Neil without a second thought.
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!
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!!
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!
Alex was the consummate professional to work with from start to finish. He answered every question I had and was very flexible with my schedule (even having to reschedule once on my short notice). I hired Alex to take both my self- and family portraits for my recent graduation at Columbia and I don't believe any other professional could have captured this very special moment in my life any better. Alex was very professional and so friendly throughout the process that my family and I had a wonderful time walking through campus taking multiple shots. Alex even finalized my photo portfolio the same day and I greatly appreciated such a swift and short turnaround! I will be hiring Alex for future photo shoots and know that I am in great hands for amazingly, high quality photos.
We love Emily. I hired her for a family portrait photo session and she worked well with my toddler and newborn baby. She is very professional and pleasant person, she listened and gave suggestions of how we can have our photos taken. My husband and I were both happy with the photos she delivered after 2 days. We will definitely hire her again for more photo sessions in the future.
Lizzie was OUTSTANDING! Her professionalism from our very first Thumbtack message exchange to the delivery of our photos and photobook have just been amazing! She has an absolute gift for photography - capturing so many priceless moments of my parents 50th Anniversary Celebration! The images were pure artistry! And she was so incredibly professional throughout the entire process. If you are trying to decide between photographers - stop deciding and push the "HIRE" button now! Believe me - you will not regret it. WOO HOO Thank you Lizzie and may God bless you for He has absolutely blessed us with you!
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.
John is wonderful to work with: he's friendly, professional, and a great photographer. Our pictures were absolutely stunning! We'll be getting all our photos done with him in the future.
I asked Kevin and Rebecca to take some headshots for me and the results were amazing. They were super easy to work with and understood exactly what I wanted. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for photographers.
Alex is a talented and professional photographer and great person to work with. Always punctual, helpful and responsive, it's been an absolute pleasure to work with him on our company portfolio, he has captured our projects perfectly and the end results are fabulous! His skills in both shooting and editing are rare and top class and therefore I'm delighted to recommend him!
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.
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!
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.
Bill Persons did updated headshots for my book marketing purposes. He was accommodating in scheduling; easy to work with; listened to my explanation of what message I wanted to convey in the images and helped me capture it during the session; offered as many images from the photo shoot as I wanted as an inclusive part of the session fee; and delivered proofs and then final images with less than a one-day turn-around. A very high quality photography service which I enthusiastically recommend.
It went amazing. Basel was SUPER awesome. Directed me because it was my first shoot and it helped so much. He is also a very genuine person & VERY comfortable to talk to which is a HUGE thing for me and asked my ideas & I really felt like it was teamwork instead of me and a photographer. Was just overall an awesome experience honestly.
Justin is one of the most talented photographers I have ever worked with. He's top notch
Briana was a very humble and professional photographer! She took my fiancée and I’s engagement photo near the Empire State and the turn around time was super quick! Would def consider her for future work.
