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!

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

Bin videoed my daughter's Bat Mitzvah. She was professional and pleasant, but I was worried that the video wouldn't be excellent quality because of the low light in the venue. Bin repeatedly asked to have the lights turned up and happily the video turned out nicely. My only real complaint is that Bin was more of an observer versus other videographers who tend to get people excited to be on camera.

Really nice service, captured all the genuinely happy moments on my birthday to remember forever instead just only posing for the camera. Also I got all of my photos in the next day or two! really fast and good quality, responsive accommodating on my editing request! Highly recommended!

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...

Mayer delivered two-camera coverage with clear audio from an on-camera mic! (We weren't allowed to plug into the event's sound board.) I was very impressed by Mayer's responsiveness, quick turnaround time, and his interactions with the team presenting at the event were excellent. I was worried that his low hourly rate might signal a compromise in quality, but that was certainly not the case. Good job, Mayer!

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!

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

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 !

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.

Super pleasant experience working with Alex. Very easy going, full of new and creative ideas, exceptionally professional. If you aren’t comfortable around the camera, he’ll change that in you and you’ll feel like a top model posing for the Vogue magazine cover. Great person to work with for any occasion. Highly recommend!

I've found David on Thumbtack about 1.5 month before my wedding and I'm so lucky I did! He was very professional from the very first encounter, always on time and such a pleasure to work with! He's very passionate about filming and it shows in his work (I've spent at least 4 days watching wedding videos and I loved David's work the most!). The price was very reasonable and I couldn't be happier with it! David brought an assistant, multiple cameras and even a drone! Can't wait to see our beautiful wedding video! And with David making it I'm sure it will be incredible! Thank you so much for all your hard work!

We could not have gotten a better photographer for our wedding. At first we were hesitant because he is based from Florida but he traveled here to meet before the wedding. He answered our million questions and worked with our budget. Miguel and his team made us feel so comfortable throughout the whole process. Everyone that got in front of his camera felt like top models. He directed us so well on how to pose. If you book him and his team for your event, you will be glad you did. Excited to see the photographs and video. Miguel has great artistic vision and you can see that he genuinely loves what he does.

Brandon is an amazing camera man, there isn’t a single doubt about that. The minute he started recording it was like we were completely in sync. He knew exactly what I wanted, and was able to come up with ideas and solutions to bring forth my vision in the best possible way! It was easy to tell he had years of expertise at his fingertips, and in comparison I probably looked like I had none; but he still treated me with respect and made it clear that I was always the one in charge which I really appreciated. Brandon went above and beyond expectation during filming and I couldn’t thank him enough for such a wonderful experience! I truly believe there was not a single other person I’d rather have behind the camera. It was during the video editing however, that I ran into a few issues. Trying to get him to talk to me about anything felt a bit like pulling teeth; but perhaps that’s just because I’m the chatty type and he’s more of a man of few words. (Which I can understand!) Regardless it was extremely difficult to get him to respond with any type of communication, which resulted in many set backs, delays, and nights of frustration. I often felt completely ignored and brushed off for “more important” clients seeing as how despite working with him first, he finished many other projects before getting back to me on mine. It also made me feel very hesitant to give my opinion on any changes I felt needed to take place, in fear of coming off as a nuisance. That being said, the end results made all the earlier trouble worth it! I can fully admit I wasn’t the easiest client to please, (pretty much a complete perfectionist!) but Brandon made sure to keep going until I was completely happy with the finished product. The journey may have been rocky, but in the end he did hold true to his word and made sure to deliver absolute perfection! He did an extraordinary job and I couldn't be more thrilled on how it all turned out. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a camera man, as his skill are unparalleled! And you will definitely be left with something you can be proud of and watch again and again for years to come. :)

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!!!

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!
