My girlfriend hinted (like beating me over the head with a 2x4) that she hoped a photographer would be around to capture our impending proposal. So I did what any 21st century guy would do and hit the internet. I emailed several photographers in the tri-state area, all getting back to me with varying fees and availability. I found Neil Blake on Thumbtack. His personal website showed his experience, so I explained to him that I would like for him to secretly photograph my proposal. I detailed that I had hired a caricaturist (if youre reading this and also are in the market for a caricaturist, look no further than Jessica du Preez) that would be drawing me on one knee proposing to my girlfriend though we would be sitting next to each other on a park bench. He agreed, and we were set. The big day was a beautiful October Sunday in Hoboken. So perfect, in fact, that there were literally dozens of people taking pictures (with what looked to me like high-end cameras). My girlfriend and I walked around the general area that I had laid out for the caricaturist to set up and for Neil to be ready to find us. I literally had no idea what Neil (or my caricaturist looked like), and so I wasnt sure if people were taking pictures of us or of the scenery (and it turned out that it was Neil taking a few of those pictures, he really did a wonderful job at being so discreet). Once I found my caricaturist and the drawing was in progress, he would walk by non-chalantly (pretending to be one of these everyday photographers enjoying the beautiful day) and marvel at how well the drawing was coming along and ask my caricaturist if it would be alright if he could take a picture while she sketched and ask us if he could take our picture (of course it was okay! But my girlfriend was still not entirely in the know. It was all for her, and it was perfect. Neil was fantastic. I cant believe how they went above and beyond to really play the parts that I asked them to play). He walked away and took some other discreetly long-distance shots, shots from behind, everything. You can really tell the entire story from the pictures leading up to the caricature, during the caricature, after she said yes. And I think thats more than I could have hoped for when I hired him to be our photographer. After the gig was up, he brought us around for 30 minutes or so posing us against the skyline and taking literally hundreds of pictures. I really feel like I got a lot for my money, and I dont see how I would do it any differently (and that goes for not only Neil, but also Jessica). I am still blown away by how flawless the day turned out for me and my now fiancée partly due to the fact that I did not know what Neil (nor my caricaturist, Jessica du Preez, for that matter (whom I also highly recommend, but that is for another review)) looked like, partly because I was hoping for true perfection, and partly due to the stress of getting several pieces (timing, two people (caricaturist and photographer) working together that have never even met, etc) into place without my girlfriend knowing (okay, so she knew it was coming. But she did not know how and what I had planned, so she was still very much in the dark). At the onset of this review, I had hoped that it would be more about the professionalism and expertise of Neil and less about me and the proposal, but let my excitement and joy be a testament to him. For any function at all, consider hiring Neil Blake to capture the story. He will do a superb job.
My experience with John was very satisfactory. He was very thorough and concise in the weeks and months prior to my event. John was on time and captured several special moments on video. He was very cordial, professional and took his time to get into the crowd and capture video. I received a video with highlights less than 24hrs from my video. Now that was very impressive!! I can't wait to see the finished product as I am sure I will be very pleased. I will certainly recommend and attest to John's quality of work and his ability to get into every special segment of the event and put it on video. Thank you John and I am very happy that I chose you to capture the special moments of my daughter's sweet 16 celebration.
One of the best photographers I have ever worked with. She was amazing - took amazing pictures, captured all the special moments. Picture quality is amazing, and moreover, she felt part of the party, and made it fun :)
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
Great photographer. Made my experience really enjoyable and comfortable. Kevin does a great time communicating with me and directing his shots where I am confident and comfortable in front of a camera. The photos taken were amazing and I hope to have another session with Kevin again soon.
We hired Dag to take pictures at our wedding since we really liked his aesthetic as demonstrated by the pictures on his website. He did not disappoint. Almost all of the pictures he took were very good with respect to composition and quality. The remainder were outstanding. He gave us all of the pictures within a week. It was a great experience especially when compared to another photographer we hired for our engagement.
Nate was WONDERFUL! He was so caring and attentive to detail. He is everything you are looking for in a videographer. He worked so well with the two photographers we had. Nate even helped lift my veil so that I could get a specific shot I wanted :) I cannot wait to see the final product in a few weeks!!! I would HIGHLY recommend Nate!!
Can't say this with enough enthusiasm and gratitude, but working with Luc was PHENOMENAL! From the get-go, Luc is fantastically professional, easy-going, and thoughtful (a true saint especially for entertaining and attentively supporting my multiple questions, ideas and correspondences during the planning process.) Pre-event to post-event, Luc's enthusiasm and sincerity in his engagement was so refreshing to work with. He showed up extra early to calibrate with my team and the space, and also generously stayed later when our event went over-time. As a golden creative professional, Luc's a TRUE ARTIST. You would think that there are limits to how fascinating a standard presentation/networking event can be when it comes to photography... With that said, Luc's got an innate poetic eye and intentional pronounced vision for story-telling. Our event photos came out beyond expectations - in the energy, emotions and moments that were expressively captured and translated through his lens. In a heartbeat, we'll be recommending Luc to folks and will be returning to collaborate with him on multiple events within our pipeline. As a start-up solidifying our brand and growth through these events, we couldn't be happier to have found a video/photo artist who can so intimately understand our evolving vision, but who also brings his own unique vision and sensibilities to help propel our aesthetic identity forward. Much respect to ya Luc!
We can't say enough about the incredible job that Kal did with our Wedding Video. His attention to detail was phenomenal. When we asked for him to be sure he'd get all the big moments, he said he would do that and much more and in the end, he exceeded our expectations by a mile (and then some!). He arrived early to get great shots of the venue, got all of the 'must have' moments (along with candid footage), incorporated some photos into the video and let us choose the music, which played to transition to different scenes and as a backdrop to the photo montage. He used the music so creatively and wisely. We've watched the video numerous times now and enjoy it just as much as we were watching it for the very first time. We gave copies to our family members too and they gave the same rave reviews! In a word: AMAZING! We would hire KC Kreative Arts again in a minute and glad that he was our first choice in Videographers and will be our only choice in the future. Kal was prompt to answer every email, professional throughout the process and delivered as promised, on every request and commitment. Let him capture your event, so you can relive and enjoy it for years to come. Thanks again for making our BIG day that much more memorable! Sincerely, Kathy and Tony
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!
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
Andrew was creative, thoughtful, and professional throughout the entire wedding day which enhanced everything the photographers were doing and allows us to share treasured memories. He was very energetic and had unique ideas that really stuck out in the final film production. On top of that, his editing skills were excellent and our "highlight video" was truly amazing. I would recommend him hands down for any wedding or event you have meticulously planned.
He was on time. Very polite. As a fellow photographer, se seemed experience. Would definitely recommend to friends. Can't wait to see the pictures and video.
David and his assistant Emily created such a wonderful video of our wedding day as it creates the magic of the day perfectly. I would definitely recommend David to anyone looking for high quality video footage of special moments!
I used Arts Into Production to produce a training video. The shoot and editing went according to the schedule. It came in on budget and on time. Howard is very creative and the finished product is visually engaging and informative at the same time.
He did good job in videotaping NYC International West Coast Swing Flashmob 2016. He did exactly like what we told him. Videos came out really nice & fantastic editing. He did a lot of extra work. I am very satisfied. I highly recommended to hire Entropy Production. http://youtu.be/T_ddY2nkNIE
Beautifully shot Elmar, you really are producing fantastic work, Great video, very nice editing, music choice and the color especially. I just love the look of the GH5 with Sigma lens. I am gonna recoment everyone who I now... Thanks again for an awesome Video.
