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 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!

Stop wasting your time looking for other photographers—Lizzie is your girl! She produced incredible photos (much more than we were expecting), had a great location recommendation, and she was just generally a pleasure to work with. I couldn’t recommend her more and I personally can’t wait for my next excuse to hire her again!

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 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!

Tina and I had a 90-minute headshot session at the International Center of Photogrsphy in midtown Manhattan. I asked Tina to engage a makeup artist to prepare me for the shoot; while I think she did a good job, she could not stay for the shoot itself. The last two photographers with whom I have worked had theirs stay for the duration, and it was helpful to have the makeup rechecked and touched up - especially for a woman my age. I think Tina is a really good photographer - and an artist in her own right. But sometimes her focus on expression and composition means that she doesn’t always see the details of her subject. There were numerous shots that she selected for my review that I couldn't use because a stray lock of hair was falling into my eye. I am not the one looking through the lens, and I can't see what the photographer does. One word, and I could easily have fixed it. We also spent the majority of the session with me wearing the same blouse - even though we had selected 2 additional wardrobe changes. As a result, the number of usable photos in those two changes was somewhat limited. We did come up with a number of really good headshots; Tina retouched my favorites herself, and I am having two of them reproduced as I write this. I appreciated the energy and encouragement that Tina brought to her work, and I would recommend her work to my fellow actors.

I have been using Beth Madison Photography for my family photos for several years, and I couldn’t be happier. I have 3 girls ranging in age from 22months to 10 years old and we've worked with Beth on birth, christening, first communion and other family events! Beth connected with my girls right away, put them at ease and got them giggling. Needless to say with 3 girls Beth has an abundance of patience a very important trait in dealing with a chaotic environment! At our shoots, she was meticulous in her preparation acknowledging in working with children the importance of keeping the actually photo shoot short and concise. Beth did a combination of candid and posed shots and always went above and beyond to make everything work together even with last minute changes! She always delivered beautiful images of my children happy and being themselves. What’s more, she gave us lots of time and personal attention and I was involved in every step of the process if that's what I preferred. Otherwise, she was very happy to make suggestions referring back to her extensive experience in the art of photography. When I first started looking for a photographer, I considered using larger photographer companies and high-end portrait photo chains. I wanted something more personal for my family, I found Beth Madison Photography, and I’m thrilled with the results and will continue to use Beth to capture other family milestones in the future.

It was real pleasure to get the images from this company. Hassan is a brilliant photographer and the photos that he took for us in our wedding ceremony came out so vivid and beautiful that I couldn't believe; truly the photos were beyond my expectation. This kind of sincere work and dedication is very rare these days; I honestly recommend this company and Hassan to anyone who are looking for some talented and brilliant photographers for any occasion.

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!

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.

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.

Laura was amazing! She took the time to get every shot just right. While other photographers might keep shooting and rush a bit, Laura slowed everthing down until the shot was perfect; lighting, position, vibe, etc. I felt in excellent hands with Laura. I really relaxed, which is key in regard to getting good shots that look like me. She made me feel that her goal was to make me comfortable in order to get the best shots possible! She is a sweetheart. She’s been great at doing light retouching. Nothing drastic. My agents are thrilled, and so am I. I will definitely go back to Laura!!!

From the very beginning, Alison was very responsive to all my emails and texts. She understood what I was looking for from a photographer, and excuted it well on my big day. On the day of my baby shower, she was extremely professional, punctual and captured great candids and stills. Alison worked well with others and was able to take direction, as well as direct with ease and professionalism. The overall quality of her work was great and her demeanor and ability to work in a fast paced and chaotic party environment was excellent. I would definitely use her for future events and would recommend her to others. Thanks Alison!

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.

Michael Violago Photography photographed my wedding and we could not be happier with the work they did. Our reception was really dark and I was worried the photos would also come out very dark, but Michael did some magic and they all came out beautiful.
