John was amazing & truly captured my event effortlessly through his lens! I decided to hire West End Video after comparing their rates and reviews to the competitors on Thumbtack who applied for the job. Initially, I thought to myself, " Is "West End Videos" really as good as the reviews are claiming?!?" To our pleasant surprise, John of "West End Videos" more than exceeded our expectations. To put the icing on the cake, John was extremely accommodating and also one of the nicest people you will ever meet. Prior to the event he made himself available via email and phone so that we could discuss the vision of the event in detail. He was highly professional & understood all our needs. On the day of the event, John arrived 1/2 hr early to and jumped immediately into action! Our event was huge, hosting over 3,000 people but amazingly, John was always in the right place, at the right time, he always seemed capture exactly what we wanted! Finding a videographer & photographer that truly captures the accurate tone through pictures can be difficult but John really allowed the camera to tell the story! If you decide to work with him you are guaranteed to be pleased!

The inflatable photo booth eas too bulky for my space but we were able to improvise and just use the camera and used a Jets table cloth as the back drop. The attendant was super nice and friendly with everyone. The party was a huge success and I will definitely recommend your company again. Thank you so much everyone had a blast. If my event space was larger it wouldn't have been an issue.

Corey was great at my wedding. My mother is really uncomfortable in front of a camera and getting her to take photos is like pulling teeth! Corey made her feel easy about get some photos and that means a lot to me! Corey did an amazing job with our wedding. I recommend him 100%!! Angela K

Working with Dag was a great experience. I had to get some portrait photos and only knew two things: I am shy in front of the camera and I didn't want the stiff look of those very "fake-spontaneous" pictures I see so often. Dag has a very personal approach, makes you feel very comfortable, he is funny and committed to his craft. He gives you instructions and talks to you as if you were born to do that, but also has the patience to listen to what you want. He is able to translate those abstract words into images that speak for themselves. I felt very at ease during the session. And the results showed because the pictures looked spectacular. Dag is not afraid to bend the rules to make a photo look truly interesting. They have that feeling of uniqueness that differentiates them from most work done you see over and over everywhere else. If you want a special photo with personality, that insinuates itself in a very artistic way and is the opposite of cliche, I highly recommend his services.

We went down to Coney Island for an end of summer lifestyle photo shoot bringing elements of street art, vintage backdrops, and colorful imagery. Luc is a natural with the camera and works with ease and vision. The photo shoot was collaborative and zero stress, such a beautiful time spent by the waters edge. No doubt that Luc creates magic...

I found Spike Li via Thumbtack and WOW am I happy I did! My wedding date (and location) changed a few times and Spike remained flexible throughout it all. When the date and location was finally finalized, he gave helpful advice about how long things would take at X location, where to meet, and the like. I'm incredibly awkward in front of the camera and Spike made my now husband and I feel super comfortable. He had us laughing through it all. He was extremely accommodating and flexible and a pleasure to work with! Spike was right in my budget (I was having a City Hall wedding) and again, I can't say how happy I am that I found him. Turnaround on the pictures was INCREDIBLY fast (I honestly didn't expect it so fast, but it works out: just in time for Mothers Day!). Thank you so much Spike! If you'd like to see us, check out his FB album titled Yazmin & Eddie!

I hired Mark as my photographer for my sister’s surprise birthday party, and I’m so glad that I did. Mark came a little earlier than expected that way he wasted no time preparing and setting up all his camera equipment. My pictures came out so crisp and stunning and due to Mark having any piece of equipment he’d need for my event. He was very polite to all of my party guests, and was really patient with everyone so he can take all of their pictures, even the ones that were a little more camera shy LOL! Throughout the night, he’d even show me the images taken so far and made sure that I liked them. That made me really pleased to know he wanted to make sure to get any kind of shot I wanted. My final pictures came out beautiful, looked SUPER professional, and sent to me by the next day! If you’re looking to hire a photographer for your event too, Mark is definitely the guy to impress you!

i was hesitant at first but when i signed with garden state photo studio, from the day until my wedding which was held 02.23.27, ms. marina and mr. vlad was very professional, they make u at ease and organize. they keep updated and they are very accomodating. ms marina who was my photographer, i warned her in the beginning that i camera shy and im not one to take good pictures but she guided me through and through. they go above and beyond my expectations. my pictures. they even went beyond the hours they signed up for. i had a total of 225 guest and about 55 total in the bridal party and they made sure everything was covered. ms marina i remembered i saw her almost the end of the reception, and i totally forgot to ask if they ate, she reassured me not to worry about a thing... Garden state studio rocked!!! i love u both and i cant thank you enough

I worked with Andrew on a pilot episode that is being pitched to Hulu and Netflix. I was DP on the project and hired Andrew as my Camera Operator. Andrew went above and beyond expectations and truly gave me clean, professional, high quality footage. One of my favorite things about working with Andrew is his troubleshooting abilities, no matter what issues we ran into on set, Andrew was quick on his feet and found a good solution to any situation we were dealing with. I highly recommend Andrew for anyone who has any video production needs. Very impressed with his work and he is a truly awesome person to be around.

I hired Elvin for a fundraiser i planned for my job and i must say by the end of the night i was very pleased. He came on time and stared right away. the whole night with the camera up catching every moment, he even stayed extra over time to catch the pictures of the last 2 raffle winners. Elvin is very easy to work with and he asks exactly what you want and will deliver. i received an email that my pictures were ready and i was blown away the pictures came out great and he got every detail of the fundraiser, all the guest , the staff,the award table , snack table ,raffle table and ALL of the decorations. I most definitely will hire him for another job. Thank you Elvin !

Cristian and his team provided amazing photography and video services for our wedding. We were pleasantly surprised that he was able to give us a few select pics the same night of our wedding so we could share with our family and friends. The videos and pics were very artistic and captured our special day beautifully! And the presentation of the final package of videos and pics was top notch. I would highly recommend Cine Marvel Films. -Sheila Brooklyn, NY

We made a last minute decision to make a multi-camera (3) HD Video of the final USA Tour performance in NYC of a new Cuban Act called The Habana Boys. After a brief internet search, I found a list of several NYC-based videographers who specialize in working with the arts. This show involves singing in multiple genres, choreography, and live musicians. I sent a mass email out and not only was Howard Silver's Arts Into Production the first response, the fee he was proposing was 1/2 of some, and only matched by one of 9 other responses we received within the next 24 hours, and after we already agreed with Howard. Turns out if was an excellent decision. Howard is so responsive that he shared the first 10 minutes of the edited footage by Midnight following a matinee performance, and we had the full 90 minute video within 5 days (A day sooner than promised). About the shoot: the angles he chose, and the way he edited the footage, makes it possible for us to market this new production more professionally, and we are confident that the modest expense will pay for itself in terms of increased interest, and possibly generating increased fees as presenting organizations will immediately recognize that they will have a better tool to market the show themselves. Please do not hesitate to call, or email me for further clarification. Sincerely, Eric Amada Arts Management Associates 267.738.0000 (West Coast) eric@ama.bz

Absolutely stunning photos!! This was my first shoot since i lost a ton of weight and I must admit, Im still camera shy and unsure of my body. Alisha was able to make me comfortable and she wasn’t professional , she was also personable. Already I’ve recommended her to friends who’ve visited from out of town and they’re over estatic about the results from their shoot . THANK YOU ALISHA CAMILLE PHOTOGRAPHY!!! You’re not getting rid of me now ! :)

Thank you to David at Stratosfilm for making our wedding weekend a memorable one! From the get go he was so great to work with, very responsive. It was nice to not have to stress about the video leading up to the wedding either. I was rest assured that he'd take care of everything! We were no small feat to work for either. He had an assistant with him who was also great and between the two of them they were able to navigate a Catholic and Indian wedding weekend with 400+ guests and 6 events over two days. They were professional to the highest standards, but also managed to have fun and make it fun for us as well! We got great feedback not only from guests who enjoyed seeing them around but also our photographers, DJ and wedding coordinator. We had originally planned to to a DIY wedding video recording with rented cameras but we are SO SO glad we were able to book David. Our memories of that special weekend are going to be such a joy to look back on now. We'd highly recommend them to any couple looking for quality wedding videography!

Gabe was such a joy to work with! He was really energetic and funny, which helped us relax in front of the camera and have a good time. The photos are beautiful and a great mix of posed shots and more natural photojournalistic-style pictures. We got some cute little polaroids that same day, and the rest of the album in less than a week. I'm so glad we hired him and have these wonderful photos to remember our elopement by!
