Jonas and Sefa were amazing throughout the whole wedding planning process.. They were both very polite, super organized and professional, always answering questions through email or phone immediately. They made everyone feel comfortable and I really felt like they cared about capturing our big day. It was more than a job to them, they added a personal touch that is so special and amazing. We couldn't have asked for a better team of photographers to capture our beautiful day!!! Would absolutely recommend them again!! Alicia Revare

They provided us with outstanding service. The pictures were really beautiful and better than we would have ever thought. The video just leaves us speechless every time. They were very professional and sweet to deal with. It really was a pleasure to have them as our photographers & videographer. We highly recommend them to everyone..

The photographers were very nice and down to earth. Had sense of humor which is important. We're willing to wait for us to get people together. And improvised where they needed too. They were great.

I don't even know where to start except to say that what a lesson I've learned about the benefits of using a skilled photographer/George when it's time to sell a home. I'm living on the West Coast trying to sell a home on the East Coast! The 1st MLS listing created by our real estate agent was clearly taken with a cell phone camera and were just plain terrible! Considering the only marketing tool for selling a home in rural Vermont is the internet great photos are CRITICAL! Every real estate or private seller should seek out a professional photographer before listing a home. So after seeing the realtors images I was in a panic to find a real photographer. AND I DID! I put in my request at Thumbtack and was speaking to George (no lie) less than 30 minutes later. He listened to my needs drove all the way out to the house, took the most gorgeous pics and even showed the house to some folks that showed up on their own while he was there! Now after our 1st week w/George's new images on our MLS listing we have two offers and more coming daily. Do it right hire a professional! And if you can hire GEORGE!

George did an engagement photos shoot with my fiancé and I. He was very easy to work with and very good at what he does. We took a lot of pictures and he chose some great places and poses, we were thrilled with the pictures when we got them. The editing was beautiful, the colors vibrant and the effects he used on some of the pictures was pretty cool. I deffinetly recommend George to other people searching for a photographer. He's very talented and were very pleased with our experience!

George is an all-around great photographer. He understands composition and lighting and it shows in his images. He has his "tricks" to put subjects at ease and look natural.

WE LOVED EVERYTHING. His prior communication was very friendly and informative. pictures are fabulous. we could not have asked for a better photographer. Ken takes any pictures you request and he really captures every single moment of your event without even seeing him there. ken is very friendly and all our guests loved him. you get way more than you pay for when you book him for your photographer. We would recommend him for any event . thank you Ken for capturing our 25th anniversary and giving us photo memories of a lifetime to cherish. (Charles & Teri-Ann Whitbeck)

Working with Ken was a truly enjoyable experience. He accommodated us with a flexible schedule for our photo session due to a family crisis, and always responded promptly and fully leading up to the day of the photo session. During the photo session, he was able to corral 23 of us into a full group as well as many sub-groups, with excellent pictorial results of all configurations! Furthermore, the entire group enjoyed his direction and staging, as he did it with humor and respect. I recommend Ken highly, and wouldn't hesitate to work with him again.

There are many photographers out there, but none like Eleanor! She is genuine, caring, and on point exactly when you need her to be! She knows precisely what she is doing and why she is doing it! My husband and I really lucked out with getting her! She was enthusiastic and despite the chaos and the fact that we were running an hour late, she remained calm and made me and my bridal party calm! I couldn't be happier with my wedding photos and I definitely want to book her again! I wouldn't recommend anyone else, but her!

Eleanor did a wonderful job photographing our small, family-only wedding. She took some wonderful staged shots, but she was also able to capture many spontaneous moments throughout the entire day. She took many photos throughout the event, but we never felt like she was "in the way". Eleanor was a pleasure to work with and I am very glad she was the photographer we chose to capture the memories of our special day!

First off, I want to mention that my husband and I had two wedding ceremonies, with two different photographers. One in New York, with Frank, and one in Colorado with another photographer. Getting to see the difference between a great photographer, with a professional attitude, and a photographer (the one is Colorado) who showed us a great front, but on the wedding day was terrible, really brought to light exactly how wonderful of a job Frank did for us on our wedding day. Frank was constantly taking pictures, never missing a beat. On the other hand, Colorado photographer was constantly seen sitting down, not taking pictures of things that were happening. Frank and Darlene were wonderful to work with. Frank is super enthusiastic, friendly and professional. I love doing business with genuinely kind people. He was very responsive from start to finish. Every time I had emailed a question, his response was never more than a couple of hours later. We didn't really know what we wanted in terms of styling, but Frank made sure to capture everything we could have wanted and more! His dedication to making our day so very special was obvious and very much appreciated. He was there from start to finish, and traveled with us from Poughkeepsie to Rhinecliff for our ceremony and reception. Everyone commented on how great they both were, and how wonderful our pictures turned out! We got our pictures back in about 2 1.5 to 3 weeks, just in time for holidays and upcoming birthday presents. And the flash drives came in the mail to us in very pretty black boxes with glass tops. I will hire them for whatever other special occasion comes along, and highly recommend them for weddings. Fantastic job!!

My company needed to get professional photos of advertisements that were placed throughout the mall and Stephanie was really great about getting the job completed for us. We had an issue with the photos she sent over initially, but she went right back and re-shot the photos to our specifications. She was really great to work with and met every single deadline we set - thanks, Stephanie!

Debbie recently photographed our daughter's Bat Mitzvah and we would highly recommend her. She easily moved around the function with our guests, was friendly and nice and took great pictures of the event. She knew what to do and what pictures we would want to have for an album to remember the day. Her price was fair and she sent us all the pictures within a few days of the event. If you are looking for a friendlya and knowledgeable photographer for any party or special occasion Deb is your best choice in the area. Would not hesitate to use her again in the future.

Words cannot describe how wonderful Stacey is, she is very professional but besides that she is great to work with, she has a wonderful personality and her work speaks for itself. Stacey made us feel so comfortable. The moments she captured of us and our event were truly magical - straight from a magazine! Not only did she photograph us, but she also educated us on how to position a photo shot in order to utilize all of the surrounding elements. The pictures came out fantastic and we now have memories that will last a lifetime. We highly recommend her services for any event you may have.

Stacey recently was my photographer for my wedding. She did an amazing job. She was able to capture the photos I had described to her that meant a lot to me. She worked well with my large wedding party by getting everyone to focus on the picture we were trying to take (even when the younger kids in the party had meltdowns). She handled everything professionally and got the job done. I would definitely use her again for a photo shoot.

We haven't received our pictures from Neal yet, but I feel confident about my 5/5 star review from the few he showed us on his camera. Neal was a last minute find for us when I realized that my mother-in-law had put too much thought and effort into our rehearsal dinner to not have professional photos. He hardly asked any questions at all which was Super helpful since our wedding was in a couple of days and we were busy beyond belief when we hired him. He was Amazing at getting everyone's attention for group shots and I feel like he made sure to capture every photo we'd care to have after the event. He came up with some very clever angles and positions. He was also so personable and pleasant to be around. My only regret is that we didn't have him with us for our whole wedding day. Highly recommend!!

I write this note as a letter of high recommendation for Angela Schapiro. Her keen eye as a professional photographer was essential to the success of our bicycle race, The 4th Annual Women's Woodstock Cycling Grand Prix 2016, especially in all of our post-event social media and 'thank you' campaigning. Ms. Schapiro's focus on the project was outstanding, in fact as busy as she was she attended all planning meetings for our bicycle race which is one of the top women's-only races in the United States. She made every effort to share with race staff how best to expose a viewer to the imagery that would be long lasting and memorable. And, as a result of her work, we now have use of some of the most compelling photos chronicling a most exciting day of sport and community. Whether action shots of a sporting event or portraiture I will always be the first to highlight and recommend Ms. Schapiro's skill set and craft!! Simply put: She is quite amazing! Thank you very much for your time. Cordially, Martin E.

I cannot express how beautiful our pictures came out. Many were outside and the others were in a low lit tent or lodge but the colors were vivid and everything looked perfect! Angela was also a pleasure to work with and there right when we had agreed upon. I'm so happy she was our photographer Winnie G

Angela is an accomplished and very versitile photographer. We were so fortunate to choose her for our event. Angela did an outstanding job -- from table shots, to posed shots, to obtaining wonderful candid shots of most of our 250 guests. Angela blended in with the crowd and quietly worked her magic.

I started going to iSmile Studios when my oldest daughter was 9 months old after getting frustrated with other “mall studios”. They didn’t really care about their clients....they just took pictures and sold you a package Once i started going to iSmle i resized how much they actually cared about everyone that they did business with. After 2 visits they remembered my name and my daughters name! As my family grew so did my business with the studio When my husband and i decided to finally get married I inquired with local wedding photographers BUT never gave a thought to ask Stephanie if she shot weddings. Well to my surprise and with a big smile she said YES!!! My wedding was one of the best days of my life and i really think it’s because of all of the beautiful pictures i have to look back on. I do not like being photographed BUT Stephanie makes sure to make everyone comfortable and happy with the end product. Stephanie and her staff are the best around! Every year our holiday seasons are amazing! I recommend all my friends to go to the studio and I give iGrow memberships when a friend is having a baby.

I have had the absolute pleasure to work with Stephanie in an educational setting for a photo shoot as well as a private photo shoot for me and my boyfriend. She is by far the most careful, thoughtful, diligent, and talented photographer in the Capital Region and beyond. She truly knows what she is doing and has an amazing demeanor, making all of her clients feel comfortable while having their photos taken. It is so evident that she loves what she is doing - it is her gift! So let her share it with you - you will not regret it!

iSmile Studios is the only studio I trust with my head shots as well as my family's photos. Their photographers are personally invested in each and every client. I feel that my personality is reflected in a warm, yet professional manner. I am a valuable woman, a loving mom, a savvy business owner, not just a mere subject at iSmile. And that's what shines through in every image.

Kat is a fantastic photographer. She easily navigated the photo session and included all of the props and locations I wanted to use in the photo shoot. She waited patiently and even helped with baby outfit changes! She takes her time and genuinely wants to get the pictures that you envisioned, but also has a great eye for different angles and creative pictures. One of my favorite pictures was a completely unplanned and candid moment I was having with my daughter that Kat took while I was giving my baby a break between pictures. She really captured my daughter’s personality in the photos. I highly recommend!

I booked Doulos photography after seeing his work from a friend of mine and I was very impressed with what I saw. He did my son’s 6 month photography shoot and I was more than pleased with not only the pictures but just his overall service. He was extremely professional and very patient with my son, I know it’s hard working with kids because they want to do their own thing but Kadeem worked with my husband and I and Liam’s pictures came out great. We weren’t sure what exactly we wanted in terms of picture packages and he talked with us extensively and what would work best for our budget and he was extremely accommodating. Overall 5 star ratings from us. Will definitely be booking for our Christmas cards!!
