Mary and Ali were amazing to work with! I hired them a month before my event after my original photographer canceled on us. They did the photos for my Wedding yesterday and we had a limited time before my ceremony to get some shots! They found all the perfect locations and angles. We saw some previews on their cameras and it looked great! I'm excited to get the photos! It was also awesome to have two photographers, so we were able to get two angles of everything! They were instructive and tried to make the best of the natural light on a cloudy/rainy day! I would definitely recommend them! The price was also great since we were working on a small budget!
My girlfriend hinted (like beating me over the head with a 2x4) that she hoped a photographer would be around to capture our impending proposal. So I did what any 21st century guy would do and hit the internet. I emailed several photographers in the tri-state area, all getting back to me with varying fees and availability. I found Neil Blake on Thumbtack. His personal website showed his experience, so I explained to him that I would like for him to secretly photograph my proposal. I detailed that I had hired a caricaturist (if youre reading this and also are in the market for a caricaturist, look no further than Jessica du Preez) that would be drawing me on one knee proposing to my girlfriend though we would be sitting next to each other on a park bench. He agreed, and we were set. The big day was a beautiful October Sunday in Hoboken. So perfect, in fact, that there were literally dozens of people taking pictures (with what looked to me like high-end cameras). My girlfriend and I walked around the general area that I had laid out for the caricaturist to set up and for Neil to be ready to find us. I literally had no idea what Neil (or my caricaturist looked like), and so I wasnt sure if people were taking pictures of us or of the scenery (and it turned out that it was Neil taking a few of those pictures, he really did a wonderful job at being so discreet). Once I found my caricaturist and the drawing was in progress, he would walk by non-chalantly (pretending to be one of these everyday photographers enjoying the beautiful day) and marvel at how well the drawing was coming along and ask my caricaturist if it would be alright if he could take a picture while she sketched and ask us if he could take our picture (of course it was okay! But my girlfriend was still not entirely in the know. It was all for her, and it was perfect. Neil was fantastic. I cant believe how they went above and beyond to really play the parts that I asked them to play). He walked away and took some other discreetly long-distance shots, shots from behind, everything. You can really tell the entire story from the pictures leading up to the caricature, during the caricature, after she said yes. And I think thats more than I could have hoped for when I hired him to be our photographer. After the gig was up, he brought us around for 30 minutes or so posing us against the skyline and taking literally hundreds of pictures. I really feel like I got a lot for my money, and I dont see how I would do it any differently (and that goes for not only Neil, but also Jessica). I am still blown away by how flawless the day turned out for me and my now fiancée partly due to the fact that I did not know what Neil (nor my caricaturist, Jessica du Preez, for that matter (whom I also highly recommend, but that is for another review)) looked like, partly because I was hoping for true perfection, and partly due to the stress of getting several pieces (timing, two people (caricaturist and photographer) working together that have never even met, etc) into place without my girlfriend knowing (okay, so she knew it was coming. But she did not know how and what I had planned, so she was still very much in the dark). At the onset of this review, I had hoped that it would be more about the professionalism and expertise of Neil and less about me and the proposal, but let my excitement and joy be a testament to him. For any function at all, consider hiring Neil Blake to capture the story. He will do a superb job.
Joe Jenkins is an expert in what he does! He was punctual which was extremely important to me being that my event took place near the WTC and it was very early in the morning. He is very thorough, he followed up my phone calls, text messages and emails promptly. He has a very friendly and warm personality (unlike the typical annoying photographers). His quality work speaks volumes! I received outstanding quality images in a timely manner. He is truly a professional and you can tell he works extremely hard (especially behind the scenes) to provide the best images possible.
One of the best photographers I have ever worked with. She was amazing - took amazing pictures, captured all the special moments. Picture quality is amazing, and moreover, she felt part of the party, and made it fun :)
Jo Anne did a great job of photographing several of our executives at an on-site shoot. The pros: - She was responsive to all of my questions beforehand. - She was punctual on the day of the shoot. - She was able to adeptly capture both formal head shots and less formal, business casual shots of each executive. The cons: - With other photographers I've contracted, I've always received several "proofs" to choose from. In this case, I was given only a handful of choices. It worked out fine, but I thought this was worth noting. - I was surprised to initially receive a contract that indicated only web versions (low resolution) of the photos would be included. To her credit...upon my request, Jo Anne immediately added the high resolution (print quality) versions at no additional cost. Based on the initial exclusion though, I would definitely recommend to future clients that they review their contract to be sure the high resolution versions of the images are included. Overall - a positive experience. I would definitely recommend Jo Anne for your corporate 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.
Ali has been a complete professional to work with. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of a photographer!
Marc is one of the best, most professional photographers I had the pleasure of working with. A real class act.
Emily is a phenomenal photographer!!! I only contact her for all of my photography needs. Personally, she is very sweet and soft spoken. She gives great direction and the photos are always spectacular! The quality of Emily's work is some of the best I've ever seen. Thank you Emily, you are fabulous!
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.
I have shot with Tom on several occasions, all of which have produced high quality images. The environment he creates is relaxed and comfortable, all while being very professional. He is a photographer that is very diligent, professional and personable. I would highly recommend Tom to anyone looking for refined images.
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!
Spike took our Engagement photos in Central Park last week, and the experience couldn’t be any better! We originally had a different date and plan in mind. But Spike was flexible and accommodated the changes in our plan. During the day of the shoot, Spike made us very relaxed. We felt at ease with his presence. He gave us directions on poses, but made sure we were comfortable with them. Spike also knows the park well, taking us to a number of his favorite locations. He was also open to our suggestions on shooting locations. We received the photos within a week of our shoot. My fiancée and I are very happy with them. They look amazing and I’m sure the photos will be our treasured memories in the years to come. One last note, we’ve reached out to a number of photographers, both on Thumbtack and elsewhere. Spike’s rate was very reasonable, especially more so now that we’ve received the photos and gone through the experience. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend Spike for your photo needs!
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!
Basel is a world-class photographer, and I highly recommend him, without reservation. His art direction, shot selection and post production processing are all very advanced. His athletic photography communicates the emotion and energy of the athletes, going well beyond the standard, dull emphasis on physicality and action so common to many average photographers. This emphasis on emotion humanizes his subjects, bringing their striving into sharp context for the observer. His work for me was at a high in suboptimal conditions - poor lighting conditions, limited vantage points and perspectives from which to shoot, and uninspiring backdrops for the action. Basel did the best that he could, and the output was amazing considering to the environment. Excellent administration is another key attribute, and his level of organization was exceptional.
Picture it, 60 or so Cub Scouts and their families, at an event. All are excited and having fun. Elvin/Lets Dew Photography maintained a calm and welcoming demeanor throughout the entire event. He provided props for the expected theme and more such that everyone had a blast taking pictures, the kids and adults. Elvin did a fantastic job and we would highly recommend him.
Alison was a great photographer for our bridal shower. She was on time and had super fast turnaround for delivering the photos. She followed up to make sure I was happy with the photos. You can tell she really loves what she does and takes pride in it. We are so happy she captured such a special celebration so we can cherish the photos years from now. Thanks Alison!
He was on time. Very polite. As a fellow photographer, se seemed experience. Would definitely recommend to friends. Can't wait to see the pictures and video.
I have worked with several photographers in the past but have decided to keep going back to Justin. I have done two photoshoots with Justin and was very pleased with the way both sets of pictures came out. He definitely has a good eye for photography - he sees the big picture but also pays attention to the details. He is also a great guy and easy to work with....flexible and responds quickly. I look forward to working with him again.
We loved the photos that Briana took. She was super easy to work with and very accommodating. We came from out of town and she helped us find our way around as well. Thank you again for a great experience!
