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.

We had requested Brian's services as a DJ for my sons graduation party, this past weekend. Brian was the most personable DJ i have come across, trying to help wherever we were in crisis. Made our job easier by providing and setting up a projector for the slide show, and also taking more photographs after the photographer left. He did suggest the photobooth which was a big hit at a very good price. Our guests had a blast at the party thanks to Brian's help. I would recommend none other than Brian for any party in the area most definitely for his outstanding services.

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!!

April was our wedding photographer. She did a great job capturing our wedding party and the surrounding reception area. We have many beautiful pictures to remember our special day. Always remember for a wedding to make sure your photographer knows the list of family members and important people so that they can be included in your photo memories.

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!

It was such a great experience working with Billy. I design jewelry and wanted to incorporate models into my marketing plan. Billy was very helpful in all aspects from getting the right models for my business, organizing the photo shoot, highlighting my jewelry in the photos, creating gorgeous images for print and my website. He even made the photo images in different sizes so they would be compatiable for web and print. He spent time with my web designer to get the image size, etc perfect. Billy was also very flexible with his schedule to meet with me to look at photos and discuss the best shots etc... I recently used several of his photos in print for the JFA SHOW in Chicago. The JFA organization actually used one of his photos for promoting the show. In essence working with Billy and Wilhelmina was a great expereince and I look forward to our Spring photo shoot!

    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.

      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.
