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.

Alex was a professional photographer with incredible expertise. He was very professional and took beautiful and stunning family pictures at our twins Baptism ceremony and reception. We will cherish these memories always and are very grateful to him. His photos captured the essence of our loving twins, our family and friends!

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 Emily to photograph my wife's party at a private venue downtown and she did an incredible job. Not only was the communication fantastic when we first hired her, but she checked in the day before to confirm, showed up early, and interacted wonderfully with our guests. We thought we only wanted candid shots of our guests, but at Emily's suggestion we posed for a few individual and couple photographs before the event and they wound up being some of our favorites. She even coordinated a group shot with the DJ. We had our pictures edited and in a dropbox within 48 hours of the event's conclusion. Will certainly call on Emily again next time we have an event.

I was in need of a videographer and photographer in New York. The venue we happened to be getting married at recommended Corey & Faymus Media. So I contacted Corey. He was very down to earth and comfortable to talk to about my big day. His experience really shows as he helped me better understand my day and how formal photos and the timeline would fit. On the day of the wedding Corey & one of his photographers made my whole day go perfectly. We got all the photos we wanted and they were so relaxed and professional. They interacted with our guests which made them feel more comfortable for photos and video. The amount of professional equipment Corey has is unreal. He has very high end movie equipment. My son is an aspiring videographer and was asking a ton of questions and Corey still made time to show him everything while working. I thought that was really kind of him as it made my sons day! Once we recieved our final edited video I was so impressed. I cried as It was beautiful. We were provided 4k which the definition is incredible as we have a 4k TV. I totally recommend Corey & Faymus Media for any Photography or Videography you may need. Truly blessed to have found them. I will be looking to book with them for my sisters wedding next summer. Thanks so much Corey & Jim! - Melissa Createro

Last year, I hired Jeff for my engagement photos, and we loved them, so when it came time to choose a photographer for our wedding, it was a no brainer. Jeff captured the day PERFECTLY and was an absolute pleasure to work with. It's hard for me to pick favorites because I loved every single one of them. Jeff - thank you for helping make our day perfect!

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 hired Jenna for my fiance's shower and our wedding. Over that course of time I can tell you one thing for sure - Jenna is as amazing a person as she is a photographer, I would highly recommend her for any type of event. Not only does she have the education and skill set of a high quality photographer, she also brings a passionate, caring and fun personality, which we loved so much. She was VERY responsive and altered many of her plans to accommodate our event. We had ideas in mind, but after speaking with her, we trusted she would lead us in the right direction and she sure did. That was invaluable because it allowed us to not stress and put more time towards other wedding duties. I can not say enough about her quality of work but also just how great a person she was.

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!

Alex came to shoot a private speaking event and cocktail reception for our tech company and did a fabulous job. He is extremely tentative to detail and ensuring we gets all the right shots we are looking for. He also was fabulous to work with while my team is based on the west coast and flew in day of for our event. Photos were received promptly after the event and were great quality. Would definitely hire again for all my NYC events.

Kaddy was a real pleasure to work with! I hope to work with her again in future! She is a skilled photographer for sure! An area where she really stands out from other photographers I have worked with is her ability to capture great action shots (in this case of dancers)! She got a lot of really great shots that were very complimentary! (In my experience, folks who try to photograph dancers take a lot of really awkward-looking shots! Not Kaddy!) I recommend her highly!

Spike took our Engagement photos in Central Park last week, and the experience couldn’t be any better! We originally had a different date and plan in mind. But Spike was flexible and accommodated the changes in our plan. During the day of the shoot, Spike made us very relaxed. We felt at ease with his presence. He gave us directions on poses, but made sure we were comfortable with them. Spike also knows the park well, taking us to a number of his favorite locations. He was also open to our suggestions on shooting locations. We received the photos within a week of our shoot. My fiancée and I are very happy with them. They look amazing and I’m sure the photos will be our treasured memories in the years to come. One last note, we’ve reached out to a number of photographers, both on Thumbtack and elsewhere. Spike’s rate was very reasonable, especially more so now that we’ve received the photos and gone through the experience. Overall, I would not hesitate to recommend Spike for your photo needs!
