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.

Bemont Photo took amazing shots of my cats in my home where they feel comfortable. Andy is an incredibly talented, non intrusive professional. We now have beautiful portraits of our furbabies that we will treasure forever.

I loved taking pictures with Royal, he was a very interesting fellow and knew how to keep a smile on my face. He cared strongly about my satisfaction with the portraits that were shot and overall he was just a fun person to work with.

Very friendly! Photos came out awesome! It was great for the price! I didn't know he would be taking the photos on a camera in a booth, not a traditional sit in the booth in and look at the screen. But you can't tell the difference in photos! Totally worth it.

We hired Lily to take family portraits as a Christmas present for my mother. I was nervous because I had booked everything online from Washington, DC, but Lily was really responsive and kindly replied to every confirmation I sent! She came to our home in Elba, NY for about an hour and took a lot of portraits in various locations around our house. I cannot say enough about Lily - she was kind and thoughtful, but also willing to provide a little direction (that we definitely needed). She was very punctual, and did a really wonderful job. The best part was, she got our photo CD out to us almost immediately! My mom was really excited to get them the day after Christmas. They turned out beautifully and we were really impressed with Lily's work! We wouldn't hesitate to hire Lily again in the future. She has a great career ahead of her. Thanks so much Lily!!

We used Tony twice. The first photography session was with my two boys. He was personable and made them feel comfortable. He got some superb shots indoors in his own studio and outdoors. The second session was for a family portrait which he photographed our family in a park. These pictures also came out wonderful! His years of experience show in dealing with people and the end result of his work. I would highly recommend him.

I was very pleasantly surprised to see the quality equipment he had in his studio. The photo shoot remained relaxed and professional the entire time. He tweaked my photos in a way that made hid my minor blemishes but essentially was still ME! I went with my children and husband who were all very comfortable in the studio annex rooms. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Top rate professional. I do believe we've found our family photographer.

AIP photography was amazing ! I did family photos with my 2 boys who where 8 and 1 1/2 years at the time ( and may I add not the most cooperative ) I got the most amazing memories and we got the best pictures because they took the photos the kids wanted, down on their level , waited patiently .Great stills and actions shots ! They will be my photographer for any future events for family photos and wedding! They are really down to earth who take great photos and get down to your level . You will not regret them at all !

I've had five sets of professional pictures taken by Daqwan. He was truly amazing. He knows so many different locations to match your preferences and is willing to go to all of them. He is hands down the best photographer in Rochester.

Colleen Snyder is an excellent photographer. I couldn't have been more pleased with her work when she recently updated my professional portrait. She has also taken beautiful photos of our family that we have just loved. I have worked with many photographers in my profession and Colleen is on-par with the best of them. Janine DeCook

    Stephanie is amazingly talented and has the ability to truly demonstrate emotion through her work. She is great to work with, very sweet and always open to your ideas and willing to provide suggestions if you would like them. She is an all around great person it was a pleasure working with her and I absolutely adore the engagement photos she did for my husband and myself. We are hoping to hire her for our wedding as well!!

      Heidi has a phenomenal eye and does a great job with nature photos as well as people. She captured a picture of my daughter's reaction last Christmas when she thought she was opening clothes (she was 5) and the look on her face is priceless! Heidi is extremely professional and conscientious and is the photographer I want for my important memories.

        I'm so impressed with the work I've seen Amy coming out with. She really seems to instinctively know how to bring out the best in her subjects - although I've never met her in person, I feel like I know her children's personalities so well, she really lets them shine with her photography. I can only wish that she lived closer to me, I'd so love to have her do my family shots!

          Ashley Elizabeth is an outstanding photographer! I hired her to take some photos for my graduation at Finger Lakes Community College. The photos turned out perfect. She made the entire experience not only a lot of fun, but also extremely professional. I strongly recommend her.
