About this pro

How does your business stand out?

Because I work closely with my customers, I want to know what's important to them. I want to know what they expect, and my goal is to exceed their expectations. I believe in shooting a large number of high quality shots from which they can choose their favorites. The day or event is about the customer, not about the photographer.Too many photographers have an attitude. My only attitude is to make the customer happy, it's that simple.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

Meeting new people, and having the opportunity to share their most memorable occasion; while helping to make their special day even more enjoyable and fantastic!

    Marc was super easy to work with! Our event was arranged by me and my brother, both of us live out of town so we had to feel like we could trust the service providers. Marc made everything easy, was there on time, and put a group of older folks at ease with his presence. The pics are really nice! I would book him again for a future event.

    Amazing, on time, professional, worked with me every minute of the requested time frame and more! I hired him for my wedding event till 10:30pm, and he stayed extra 35 minutes till we were content with our shoots. I held the ceremony at a religious center, and he respected the rituals and rules of the ceremony as to not disrespect or violate anyones privacy. Highly recommend marc for a job. I will def be using him for my future events.

    Marc was at the venue before I arrived - waiting to take pics of me walking in. He took some beautiful pictures of me in the Bridal Suite and continued during the day. He interacted with the guests and took some great group shots and couple shots. We highly recommend Marc and enjoyed having him at our celebration.

    Marc did such an outstanding job for our daughter's sweet 16. He arrived early, was well prepared with top of the line eqipment. He is extremely organized, professional and thorough. In addition to being a great photographer, Marc is a really nice guy! He has a very pleasant, warm engaging personality. He made all of our guests feel comfortable. I really feel that he was a huge factor in the overall success of the party. If you need a photographer, look no further than Marc Solomon. I know I will book him again for our next family event.

    Marc photographed my sweet 16 and the pictures came out amazing! I was originally unimpressed with the photographer that came with my DJ and I'm so glad I found Marc instead. He is so nice and is knowledgable of his art, equipment, etc. I believe the price was very fair and the photos came out wonderful. He did his job as the photographer by not only taking photos but also telling us all how to pose and where we could photograph. He made sure to bring assistants, multiple cameras (with different lenses), and proper lighting with him to create the best photos possible. I'm so glad I have such awesome photos (and different types) to share with my family and friends!

    My wife and I had a very small wedding reception at our favorite restaurant. We had no idea what pictures we wanted going into it, we just knew we wanted something special to look back on. Marc gave us exactly that. He had great ideas and suggestions and got all the pictures we could ask for, and then some! I can't recommend him enough. Very flexible, accommodating, professional and courteous. He's excellent at what he does and you can tell he really enjoys it. A+++

    Excellent, Excellent, Excellent!!! I can't say enough about Marc! Great personality, gorgeous pictures, very accommodating and flexible. I hired Marc to photograph my mom's wedding as a surprise...that being said, he had very little information going into it and was pretty much just thrown into my crazy family to photograph the wedding. He did an outstanding job!!! He dealt with everyone's random picture requests along with getting some more classic wedding shots that neither the bride or groom knew they were going to take ahead of time. Everyone in attendance loved him! He's fun and relaxed, but very professional at the same time. I would absolutely recommend Marc for any event or occasion, I know I will use him again!

Marc was very professional; very punctual, helpful as far as making suggestions and great as far as getting back to me whenever I called. As far as his photography skills he captured all the special moments and took many pictures from every angle. Marc made sure he went around and photographed all the guests.

    We had a problem with our first who cancelled on us two days before our wedding. We found Marc that night amd met him next day. Very proffesional and personal. He was very sweet and did such an amazing job. He got all the great shots we needed without taking us away from the party too much. We got so many compliments about him. He was into the wedding as much as we were and did a great job keeping me calm before the ceremony. Dont know what we would have done without him!

    I really enjoyed our experience with Marc. He was on time to the photo shoot at our house and really took charge in making sure things ran smoothly and efficiently. After a quick scouting of the area, he moved us from location to location with ease (not easy with so many small children) and took some great pictures. His picture packages were also very affordable and he was willing to customize our packages to whatever we wanted. I would definitely recommend Marc to anyone in need of photography services and if I ever need them in the future I will try to use him again.

    Marc Solomon Was my Photographer for my wedding 5 months ago. I have to say me and my husband were very pleased with Marc. Not only us but 5 months later I am still getting compliments from my guest of how great he was... His personality and energy was perfect for the job. I had a large number of guest at my wedding, and I was surprised on how many photos he was able to take of all the guest. Me and my husband mentioned in the beginning we would like 85% photos of us and 15% of the guest. he hit it rite on the dot. All the photos were amazing. I am still choosing on my main portrait of us, they are all just so breath taking. When I look at the photos it brings me rite back to the day. I was very thankful on his flexibility as well, he stayed later then originally planned, and gave no hesitations to stay later when asked. I cant thank him enough.

Q&A

What types of customers have you worked with?
Weddings, Sweet 16s, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, family portraits, corporate events,head shots and holiday card photos.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Talk to and meet with the photographer. Observe their attitude towards their work. Many photographers are not enthusiastic, and think they are doing you a favor. Find someone who is reliable, friendly and hard working. Someone who will listen to what's important to you.
