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.
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 was extremely professional and responsive. I have worked with many photographers before and Joe was definitely the most "on-top-of-it"! Besides being easy to work with, the work product was amazing. Very clear and professional head shots. The subjects of his photos said he made them feel comfortable.
Maria was beyond a pleasure to work with! She is a seasoned photographer with years of professional experience as well as top of the line equipment and resources. Maria made me feel super comfortable and took her time to walk me through all aspects of the shoot explicitly which made the whole experience an amazing one. I have worked with many photographers for various reasons, and Maria is hands down one of my favorites. I would recommend her services to any and anyone looking to get professional photos taken for any occasion!
As a project manager for a magazine, I have to book photographers in cities across the country, not knowing anything about them. For us at the magazine, it's always a risky operation because we don't have an established relationship with most of the photographers, plus we're always under tight deadlines, AND we can't physically be at these photoshoots. When we found JoAnne, we booked her that day for a shoot the following day. When I spoke with her she was so professional and so bubbly I felt like I could trust her with our clients immediately. This totally put my mind at ease considering all the bad experiences we've had in the past. When we received the photos from JoAnne, the quality of photos was amazing and the shots were exactly what we needed. JoAnne even went above and beyond the count that we asked for which gave us a lot of variety. Our magazine looks great because of J Richards! If we have to book a photographer in this area again, we will be coming straight to her.
Never had such authentic and beautiful photos taken of me as those taken by Steve. Ended up paying more to order additional photos, I loved them all so much and could not narrow down to just a few favorites. FYI I am 47 & terribly shy and awkward in front of a camera. Steve was extremely professional, patient and persistent and gave me great direction to get the shots. He has an intuitive instinct, high expectations for his work and the greatest integrity. So much so that at first, the pictures weren't "working" according to him, so he retreated and booked a studio where we got our amazing shots. Most photographers would not have spent the extra time, would have just ploughed through. Not Steve. Consider yourself lucky if you can book with Steve. My guess is he won't be available for thumbtack booking for long. THX Steven!! You are amazing!!!
Ali has been a complete professional to work with. I highly recommend him to anyone in need of a photographer!
We hired her for my maternity photoshoot. She was very cooperative with everything including choosing location. I and my husband are very impressed with her work and creativeness. She suggested some props we can use and has a great skill of utilizing props to turn into perfect pictures. I highly recommend her for any kind of photoshoots. I am also looking forward to hire her for my new born shoot :)
Beth did a maternity shoot for us. Service and quality were exceptional. We couldn't be happier with the results. Plus, she's great person!
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 professional photographer. Not only took very good photos, also was punctual, efficient the whole process and accommodated my last minute needs. Good job Alex.
This was my second maternity photo session with Hans. In general I am not a big fan of taking pictures, especially in such a "delicate" condition, but agreed to do it for my child. It's hard to explain but somehow he knows how to convert you into a model willing to pose in front the camera. He makes you feel to be the driver of the shooting, and ultimately the pictures look genuine and natural. And the last but not the least, very affordable and competitive price. It's a worthwhile investment for your buck since he has professional equipment, and the pictures look really great without too much extra "editing help".
loved my photographer. photos came out amazing!!!
When I needed a photographer for my maternity shoot, Philmont Photography was recommended to me. I'm glad I went with them because my pictures came out really nice!
Elvin is an outstanding photographer, truly empathic, professional, detail oriented and quick in response. Highly recommending for all kinds of events, private shoots and campaigns! Thank you so much!
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!
Raul captured the love and spirit of our wedding perfectly. Our photographs are breathtakingly beautiful. We highly recommend Raul to anyone looking for a wedding photographer.
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.
I had my maternity photos taken by Adam. They came out great! I just wish there were more of them.
Natalia is an amazing photographer, with such a pleasant personality. She was such a pleasure to work with! She did my maternity photo shoot and really took great care to ensure we had great lighting in each shot and helped me to pose so that I looked my best in the photos. She even went to great lengths to help me figure out a celebrity pose I saw on instagram and the finished results were magazine worthy!! I would recommend her to anyone looking for a brilliant photographer!
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.
