Mary and her partner took excellent photographs, and for the price, it was truly an exceptional value! Some of the photos were truly artistic. I feel I need to put it some constructive criticism for shooting a religious wedding. First let me reiterate how incredibly NICE Mary and her partner were! However, she stood in the aisle at the front of the Church for nearly the entire duration and it was highly inappropriate for a Catholic wedding. Even though Mary and her partner were professional photographers who gave us a terrific product, it was commented on by many at the service, including the priest how disruptive it was to wear such casual clothing, and to stand near the alter even when not taking photos. Mary and her partner have TREMENDOUS TALENT, and are extremely nice, but you must instruct them on proper protocol at a Church wedding, and how a Catholic wedding is a reverential event, and they must not stand in the aisle for the duration, nor take photos so close to the priest when he is saying prayers. Although I remember none of it, of course, I watched a video, and yes, it was intrusive. But they are GREAT photographers & of course they will learn about religious weddings going forward. Highly recommend! Will use them again!

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.

I hired Joe to take headshots and images of myself that I needed for my own company website. From the start and throughout the organizational aspect of getting this arranged and letting him know what I was looking for (in terms of images) he was uber professional and responsive. He responded to all my questions and offered professional advice. On the day he was on time, efficient and a pleasure to work with. The whole thing took much less time than I anticipated and the end result was fabulous. All the pictures are fantastic. In my experience I don't usually like all the end products but in the case of Joe there is nothing I could fault. His turnaround time from taking the pictures to getting them complete to me was very, very quick too. Just wish I had known Joe earlier and that this should be the experience when paying for a professional photographer! Will be using him again in the future for my needs.

Joe Jenkins is an expert in what he does! He was punctual which was extremely important to me being that my event took place near the WTC and it was very early in the morning. He is very thorough, he followed up my phone calls, text messages and emails promptly. He has a very friendly and warm personality (unlike the typical annoying photographers). His quality work speaks volumes! I received outstanding quality images in a timely manner. He is truly a professional and you can tell he works extremely hard (especially behind the scenes) to provide the best images possible.

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!

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!!!

Steven was the ideal photographer for me to work with! I had NEVER taken headshots beyond what was required for the high school yearbook 5 years ago and he truly made me feel at ease. He was late for our shoot appointment but he was extremely apologetic and generously offered me additional re-touched photos in order to make it up to me - which I truly appreciated. The photos ended up coming out FANTASTIC and I'm already using my professional shot for all my networking/Linkedin/email/Slack purposes! For the price, you really cannot find a more personable and professional photographer for whatever style of photograph you are going for.

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!

When I was looking for a reasonable head shot photographer Marijana responded to me so quickly and I was so happy to made an appointment with her following morning. She gave me a few suggestions for a location for photo shooting and she knew some cool spots very well. Wonderful photographer and also wonderful person. She created very relaxed atmosphere and gave me so many photos to choose from. If you are looking for someone professional with a reasonable price, she won't disappoint you!

Tina and I had a 90-minute headshot session at the International Center of Photogrsphy in midtown Manhattan. I asked Tina to engage a makeup artist to prepare me for the shoot; while I think she did a good job, she could not stay for the shoot itself. The last two photographers with whom I have worked had theirs stay for the duration, and it was helpful to have the makeup rechecked and touched up - especially for a woman my age. I think Tina is a really good photographer - and an artist in her own right. But sometimes her focus on expression and composition means that she doesn’t always see the details of her subject. There were numerous shots that she selected for my review that I couldn't use because a stray lock of hair was falling into my eye. I am not the one looking through the lens, and I can't see what the photographer does. One word, and I could easily have fixed it. We also spent the majority of the session with me wearing the same blouse - even though we had selected 2 additional wardrobe changes. As a result, the number of usable photos in those two changes was somewhat limited. We did come up with a number of really good headshots; Tina retouched my favorites herself, and I am having two of them reproduced as I write this. I appreciated the energy and encouragement that Tina brought to her work, and I would recommend her work to my fellow actors.

Tina did an outstanding job taking photos at our 60th Wedding Anniversary celebration. The quality of the photos were sharp and the lighting she used gave a very natural color to the pictures. Furthermore the expressions that she was able to capture on our guests faces was remarkable. Looking through the pictures we were able to relive the celebration and experience the enjoyment of the event. She is easy to work with, flexible and has a wonderful attitude and personality. She is very artistic and is a talented photographer. We are very pleased that she took the photos at our event and would use her again if the opportunity arose.

We are very pleased with how the photos turned out - it was exactly what we were looking for. I highly recommend Tina, she is an incredibly talented photographer!

Kevin is a great photographer- if your looking for your photos to capture moments in time that have emotion and tell a story then do not hesitate and have Kevin be your photographer !! I was so busy with all the guests pulling me in so many directions at my milestone Birthday Party that I could not get a pulse of what was happening - now I know exactly how my party turned out - not by what all the guest told me, but more so, by all the photos that Kevin took-from the candid shots to the posed shots I can see and feel all the love- laughs, and good times all were having!! Another bonus is Kevin gets it- you tell him what your looking for and he makes it happen and he is responsible and a gentleman!! Your the best Kevin!!

Chris is a wonderful, professional photographer and takes amazing headshots! He really understands the mechanics of how to get the person's personality to shine through the photograph. During my sessions with him he has always been very friendly, understanding and accommodating. He likes to get your input and opinion on a few shots and knows how to draw out the best side of you and your personality in a photograph. He's a lot of fun to work with and very easy going (plays some really cool tunes during the sessions and is always up for suggestions). I highly recommend getting your picture taken by him and working with him.

Vince has exceeded our expectations on our wedding day at city hall in nyc. The quality and quantity of pictures for the price he charges is very budget friendly....he does not overcharge like the other photographers on here! we got our usb drive from Vince once we were done with pictures. I would recommend him in a heartbeat! Even my now husband was overly impressed with how all the pictures came out! And of course the price.....you WON'T be paying no $300-$1500 for two hrs of his time. Any brides to be, I'd book Vince if I were you! You definitely won't be disappointed! Great job Vince!!!!

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!

Spike was excellent. We wanted to do our annual photo shoot in Central Park in the snow so when it was snowing last Saturday, we looked for a photographer who would be available for a photo shoot on Sunday. Spike promptly responded to our request and so diligently took our photos on a very cold day out in the snow. We could tell he was working very hard to find the right places and angles for us throughout our two-hour session with him and the photos turned out great! We are so glad we hired him and we would recommend him to anyone looking for quality photos.

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!

While other photographers might keep shooting and rush a bit, Laura slowed everthing down until the shot was perfect; lighting, position, vibe, etc. I felt in excellent hands with Laura. I really relaxed, which is key in regard to getting good shots that look like me. She made me feel that her goal was to make me comfortable in order to get the best shots possible!
