Jennifer took a series of head shots that I will use to pursue community theater acting opportunities in the Rochester area and in my social media. The photo shoot took about 45 minutes. It went extremely well and I was very happy with the product. I received about ten different shots that I can use electronically. All are excellent. Jennifer is a high energy photographer. At the same time, she has a style that is encouraging and that enabled me to relax. I enjoyed working with Jennifer, and I hired her again to a do a family photo shoot (12 people).

Although I received quotes from other highly qualified and skilled photographers through Thumbtack, Jennifer Gattelaro has an amazing presence energetically. Her ability to connect with the "inner goddess" of her women clients struck me immediately and was exactly what I was hoping to find in a photographer for this project! I'm thrilled!

Jen was beyond amazing to work with!! She made our entire family feel beyond comfortable, letting my 18 month old run around and be himself. The quality of Jen's work is beautiful, detailed, and exactly what you want from a professional photographer. She was beyond a pleasure to work with!!! We can't wait to do it again!!!

Jeff is a wonderful photographer. He treats and interacts with his clients as if they are family from the start of your business relationship with him. Jeff does self printing so you wouldn't have to worry about going to a separate location to get your pictures developed.Just like all the major photography studios in the area, he has the top of the line equipment, the only difference is he blows their prices out of the water. You did a outstanding job Jeff. Thank You

Jeff did a great job I would recommend him to everyone. What an amazing photographer with a great sense of humor. Made our day extra special. Used Jeff for photography as well as photo booth and it was phenomenal.

Jeff did a great job of engaging the wedding guests in the photo spot. The 4 x 6 photos were appreciated (vs tiny strip). More props would have made this a solid 5 rating (boas, sunglasses, hats, etc).

Review: A friend recommended Tom for wedding photography. We couldn’t be happier we chose him. Not only did her get some incredible photos, he was very easy to work with and put everyone at ease. We really liked the slide show he played during the reception of the ceremony and formal shots. He also put our wedding up on a beautiful website, where our friends and family could view the whole wedding and purchase prints. And he was one of the most affordable photographers that we looked into.

I've worked with a few photographers on Thumbtack and Thomas has definitely been amongst the best! He was punctual, professional, and true to his word. His work quality was amazing and when I'm in his area again putting on an event, he will be the first person I call! You should do the same.

I highly recommend Thomas as a wedding photographer. He gave us a competitive price and never tried to up charge us, even when staying a couple hours more than we had agreed upon. He took excellent pictures and was very easy to work with.

Chris was our wedding photographer and he was absolutely amazing! He was there all day and was sure to meet all of our needs and wants for our photos. He gave us a sneak peak a few days later and everyone loved those photos. When we got the rest of our photos we were just blown away! It was amazing and honestly made me cry remembering our day and how well he captured it. On top of that the photo booth we had from him was a huge hit and everyone loved it!

Andy was very professional, but friendly too! He made it easy and fun, not like other stressful photo sessions in the past. He was patient with the kids and had some really good ideas, not cheesy forced poses. He did some more artistic shots mixed with some classic family portraits. I would definitely recommend Andy for anyone, but for families especially. It is no easy task to get these active kids all sitting for a photo and looking their best, so we are very grateful Andy was so wonderful!

Andy was great and I really enjoyed the photo shoot with him. He was prompt about making plans and on time the day of. Cats can be very fickle creatures and he was able to capture some great shots that I will always be able to keep. Highly recommend him for any work you might have!

Hired for Engagement Photos. Professional, friendly, and efficient. Recommended different poses and had a great eye for where to shoot. We were able to view a sneak peak of a handful of the photos by the next morning on Facebook. Kudos on the speedy turn around! I'm sure we will have the full disk quickly as well. The pictures we've seen so far are just as we hoped for! Looking forward to the rest! Thank you Roc Focus for the fun experience! Katie & Adam

We had an awesome experience with Leif and his photography skills. He was very flexible with scheduling and very accomodating. He truly captured the essence of my children through beautiful pictures. They did many different poses, different scenery, and wonderful action shots that really displayed my children's personalities. I highly recommend his services to friends and family. We will definitely be using Leif again.

Getting good pictures of our 2.5 yr old twins can be a difficult thing, when they don't want to sit still or smile at the camera (at the same time anyway). We used Kidd Media Productions for a 30 minute mini session at a Christmas Tree Farm and they were very patient and understanding with the boys, even putting videos of Thomas the Train near the camera to make one of them smile. As a result of this patience, we received some great photos for our Christmas cards this year. I would definitely recommend them to anyone else looking for a photographer, especially if they have young children.

The Kidds did an amazing job with our wedding. They arrived early, were respectful of our time, and made sure they got every shot that was important to us. The finished product is BEYOND those expectations, and we will cherish this for the rest of our lives. As a very laid back and indecisive couple, we had a hard time coming up with the kind of wedding video we wanted but they asked us just the right questions, and eased our minds the week or so leading up to the big day. I HIGHLY recommend Kidd Media Productions for ANY event photography/videography you may need.

My Fiancé and I hired Maggie as our wedding photographer and we are so glad we did! Maggie will respond quickly to any email, phone call, and is happy to communicate over FaceTime. We just completed our complementary engagement photos and couldn’t be happier with the experience. Maggie was patience, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. She has a great eye for unique backgrounds and makes you feel very comfortable. Although we were new to taking any kind of professional photos, Maggie made us feel we knew what we were doing and offers subtle direction. We couldn’t be happier to work with Maggie and are very much looking forward to her capturing our big day!

Where do I begin? From the first time I met Priscilla I instantly felt comforable. She made me laugh and feel like we were old friends. Working with her was an experience I'll never forget! I'm shy and have never liked getting my picture taken. All of that dread instantly disappeared with Priscilla behind the camera!! She's so patient, encouraging, full of energy, and fun! One thing I especially liked was the fact that she would take risks with her shots! Every picture turned out beautifully! Don't pass up this great opportunity with this wonderful photographer! You won't regret a thing! 5 stars hands down!!! *****

Josh was absolutely AMAZING! His work was SO above and beyond! First off, we went with the middle package. He let us use two hours (of the eight) to cover our rehearsal dinner! He also met with the pastor independently to discuss the photo regulations in the church. Then he went to the rehearsal so that he could take test shots and find the best places to stand for the ceremony! He did his own photo both-type deal at the rehearsal dinner so that people could all get shots of themselves! It was BRILLIANT! After, even though I asked to have him from 9:30 to 3:30, he showed up at the ceremony site before I did (at 9!) to take pictures of the venue! Not only was he there, but he had brought a phenomenal assistant for free! He took all the pictures, and the assistant worked on the lighting/getting people to focus! He got INCREDIBLE getting ready shots of me with my family. The ceremony pictures are STUNNING, and he was NEVER in the way! We got great pictures of the first kiss/rings/our exit... He was everywhere at once, and he never missed a single great shot! I gave him a shot list of formal family/bridal party pictures (it was long) and he got multiples of EVERY shot to make sure they were perfect! We met him down by the lake, and he did shots of me and my groom! They all came out AMAZINGLY! He listened to our ideas, and had some brilliant ideas of his own! He also did an AMAZING job at the reception! He got every picture we could have ever hoped for! We got multiple STUNNING shots of the cake, tons of pictures of us cutting it! The toasts were awful, but Josh managed to only get pictures of when we were smiling and laughing, and the one sweet moment in the best man's speech! He also took additional (goofy) pictures on the chaise lounge at our reception! We all had SO much fun. And additional pictures outside! So we ended up leaving the reception at 4:30... Josh gave us an extra hour of coverage, and we didn't even realize we were over because he didn't rush us at all! He was masterful and dedicated to getting the best shot possible! For $950, Josh was a STEAL. I was expecting pictures that looked like they came out of a Sears photo session, but they look INCREDIBLE. They are stunning, easily the quality of photographers I looked at that were three or four times as much. Best of all, he gave us 10 or so proofs in "trendy" washes (super faded, super bright), around 20 in black and white, a couple blue washes, a couple sepia washes, and the other 200 proofs (so just the best of the best) were digitally enhanced but classic pictures! For our 8 hour wedding, we got 237 enhanced proofs, and we get a CD with full reproduction rights for ALL pictures taken at the event! Like I said, Josh is a STEAL for a photographer, insanely brilliant, and I would HIGHLY recommend him!

Josh was great to work with! Even though we only needed a photographer for a few hours for our small ceremony at City Hall, Josh met with us beforehand to get a sense of who we were and what we were looking for. Josh did a beautiful job capturing the unique architecture of Rochester City Hall and our ceremony (which was especially impressive since the ceremony was *really* short!). We then did a photography session (about an hour) with him in a nearby park along the river. My husband and I were a bit nervous, since we didn't want photos that looked too posey, but Josh put us at ease and the photos are fantastic--very natural. We LOVE the photos and our families do too!

We hired Josh for our wedding in July and he was absolutely amazing! The day was long, chaotic, and rainy but he was so patient through the whole thing and, from what I've seen so far, got some fantastic pictures of our day :) The second photographer, Alan, also took some amazing pictures from a different perspective. I can't say enough good things about how amazing & organized these two were on our wedding day - thank you SO much!!

Todd was the only photographer I would have used for my wedding. He made my wife and I look as if we were doing a shoot for a multinational magazine and made us look that goods a well. He's real easy to talk to and work with making the event a breeze. He can give you traditional looks if you want or just let him do what we did and let him be himself. He won't let you down.

Our company hired Mr. Kramer for a commercial we needed to make for a contest. There were a number of difficult shots and transitions that we were afraid would be too challenging to film in the way we hoped. Mr. Kramer's expertise and ideas immediately put us at ease. His input made things turn out better than we imagined, and we couldn't be happier with the finished product. Additionally it should be noted that Mr. Kramer (Nate, as he prefers to be called) was a pleasure to work with. He has a great sense of humor, listened to everything we had to say, and was never pushy despite the wealth of experience he has behind the camers. Our happiness with the commercial was always his top priority and we'd definitely hire him again. Highly recommended for anyone's video or photographic needs.
