Ray Alvarez is an amazing photographer and human being, and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a fantastic wedding photographer! My dad found him on Thumbtack, and I spoke to him on the phone and we set up a Skype meeting (our wedding was in Upstate New York, closer to where he is located, but we live in Connecticut). Ray video chatted with my whole family, my then fiancé, and me, and we were all blown away by the work that he showed us, as well as his personality. We met with a couple other photographers, but all decided that Ray would by far be the best choice. We hired him with quite a ways to go before the wedding, but he would periodically check in with us (via Facebook, text, email) just to see how we were: we loved that! He and his assistant Brandon (who is wonderful too, by the way) did an engagement shoot with us in the spring and did such a great job capturing the relationship that my husband and I have. We had so much fun, and Ray had a lot of great ideas for photos, and was willing to try any ideas that we had as well. The day of the wedding, Ray and Brandon showed up early in the day so that they could capture the whole process of getting ready for our big day. It was such a pleasure to have them there for our whole wedding; the before, the ceremony, the cocktail hour, the reception, and even afterwards (my husband and the groomsmen jumped in the lake in their rented tuxes, and Ray got some great shots of that as well)! We are so impressed with all of the gorgeous pictures taken that day and I am so glad that we chose Ray Alvarez Wedding Photography to capture the most important day of our lives!
Courtney was a delightful young photographer that we hired for my parent's 60 Wedding Anniversary party. She arrived punctually, did a wonderful, professional job and delivered beautiful pictures as promised. She was a delight to work with!! I highly recommend her!!
STYLE: All photographs and the wedding photos we have seen by him are very personal specific to each couple. When we met with him, we really felt like we got to know the other people he has photographed for just by looking through his pictures. We were thrilled when our wedding photos arrived and found the same to be true for us! TILTED (DUTCH) ANGLES AND DEPTH Personally, I LOVE his use of dutch angles and depth in photos, so be prepared to arrange yourselves with depth. Example: Groomsmen had a standard "line-up" photo that my traditional granny liked a lot, but there was another groomsmen one where they're seated throughout different pews that I thought was so much more telling of the personality of the men and showed off the natural beauty of the church). So clearly he will give you the 'standard' wedding photos but then the other 80-90% will have a lot of flare and personality that he encourages the subjects to express from within instead of being externally directed. TIMING: 2 WEEKS AND 1450 PHOTOS PLUS SLIDESHOW We had our photos within 2 weeks of the wedding and despite how agonizing it was to wait, considering how stunning the photos were, I can see why it would take a bit of time to sort and send it all! These were miles better than our friends' selfies and cell phone pics that we had to hold us over. EXPRESSION: Something that was pretty cool about receiving his photos was our guests had made a lot of comments to us about our expressions at very specific moments of the ceremony and reception that we just assumed was because they knew us so well. When we saw the photos, it was plain as day to understand what they were talking about and it all lined up with the specific moments mentioned! Clearly Emmanuel has a talent for getting an idea of who people are fairly quickly and then understanding when to focus where for the best representation of each wedding and each couple. ADDED BONUS: PERSONALITY BEYOND THE PHOTOS Every wedding is stressful in its own way, but from our very first meeting Emmanuel was so kind and helpful. Every message and communication leading up to the day was professional and cheerful. The actual day was pretty hectic (they tend to be) but he came and inserted himself into our chaos, capturing lovely instants that we now have the gift of being able to look back on. Even though he was with us all day, he was never in the way and was always helpful. He encouraged friends and family to roll with pose ideas and generally made everyone so comfortable that it's an absolute treasure to look at photos with everyone's REAL smiles instead of just 'picture day' smiles. If you do meet with him, take notice of how in other wedding photos he shows, he manages to capture a group and everyone is smiling their genuine smiles in the SAME photograph. From your oldest grandmother, to your distracted siblings, down to the youngest cousin, all of them seem to have finally been synced in the timing of their expressions of joy. (So no need to photoshop good smiles together) As my husband put it afterwards, "Just him being there added so much joy to how our loved ones celebrated with us. That by itself could be a hireable skill for a wedding day." BUDGETS AND PACKAGES He has a variety of packages to fit different needs. We were on a shoestring budget and this (photographer) was actually a family gift. The package we selected was a bit closer to "normal" wedding budgets than our lower budget, but of all the things that money was spent on, this was the best investment. The day truly flew by and we are so happy and thankful to have such amazing photos to remember it by. You know what they say: families only get together at weddings and funerals, so what a treasure it is to look at both of our extended families in the same place and through such an accurate representation of their personalities! -Plus, when else in your life will you have so many people gather because they love you and are excited to celebrate with you? We had guests from all over and it is so precious to look at them enjoying the day. Even with facebook and google+ sharing options, I've still be printing 4x6 photos to slip into individual thank you cards so that families will have a printed copy of that great photo of their young baby, or new couples will have a special momento from that lovely dance. These are simply too wonderful not to share. OVERALL: If you've continued reading this lengthy review up to this point, then you won't be shocked when I write that we highly recommend Emmanuel. I stuck to comments and points on wedding photos because that was the service he provided to us, but what I have seen of his other works is gorgeous too. In hind sight, I wish we had done an engagement photo session so that we wouldn't have agonized over what to put on Save the Dates, our wedding website, and invitations. Clearly he was a joy to work with and the quality of his product is an absolute treasure to us (I can't say that enough). Hiring him as your photographer gives you quality products and a fantastic experience. Then you'll be free to stress about other things since your photographers and photos are already more than taken care of.
Josh shot me working with my clients for my website and print advertising. He was truly outstanding. I work with infants and mothers, and he was calm and unobtrusive - really able to capture the magic of our session as though he wasn't even there. Not easy to do with sensitive, curious babies as the subject! I liked him so much I re-hired him to shoot a family get together, and his candids were amazing. He trailed us as we had our afternoon and shot us "documentary" style. Some of the moments he 'caught' spoke so deeply to me that I wept when I saw them. And artistically speaking, I'm no expert, but every image has so much balance as far as composition and colors that they are so pleasing. And yet somehow he also seems to pull these surprise moments out of thin air. You can see on his website - funny, amazing images that just kind of catch you. Also, Josh is so professional - he responds to emails right away, he edits and returns the photos so quickly. I've had other experiences with photographers that have been a nightmare! I recommend Josh wholeheartedly for any commercial or personal photography you might need.
I had the opportunity to get breastfeeding photos taken by Chelsea and was very impressed. I felt so comfortable with her and a sneak peak at the photos has me ready to book another session for the family later this year. I can't say enough positive things about my experience, I highly recommend Fausel Imagery.
All I hoped for and more. These photos will be seen worldwide, and deservedly so. She goes the extra mile, is very creative and has a great eye for detail. Thank you to Thumbtack for this service and this photographer.
Looking for a professional photographer who takes amazing photographs you will cherish for years to come, makes you feel comfortable and won't make you wait months at a time to get your photos back? Look no further than Denys Vasylevskyy! I highly recommend him as he is one of the best photographers in the area, hands down! He truly captures the feeling of the day. He has photographed our family a number of times and we plan on utilizing his photography again and again.
Matt is by far one of my favorite Photographers to work with! I get a different sense of comfort in knowing that I will ALWAYS have fun while shooting and ALWAYS get amazing, QUALITY pictures back! He provides a great photography experience for any occasion whether it be prom portraits or high fashion editorial! Thanks so much Matt!

From roller derby headshots/team photos to wedding photos and everything in between ! Michael really cares about the outcome of his photos. He got them back to me within days!!
Cassie did an amazing job photographing our wedding. She took A TON of pictures and every single one came out beautiful. We also received our edited pictures back super fast! I definitely recommend her!
Carly has worked with me both as an illustrator and pet photographer. She has a natural eye for capturing character, and I'm always amazed by her shots of my kitty!
She is an amazing photographer, she has done my photos foe many years now. Not only does she have her own ideas, but she listens to your ideas as well. She is so much fun to work with and her kindness is amazing. I would gladly have her do my photos for me again!
Outstanding photographer. Caring, professional and reasonable pricing.
Great work, very flexible and creative, and a wonderful photographer to work with. Couldn't be happier!
Melissa is a wonderful photographer! She does all of our family portraits and any events that come up (sports, school, etc.) She's professional, accommodating, patient and great with kids. I highly recommend her!!
Jen was incredible. After hiring her for our wedding photos, she has also taken newborn photos and one year old photos of our daughter. I immediately felt at ease with her and you won’t get “insert bride and groom” photos with her. She got to know us as a couple and really went all out. I will absolutely use her again in the future!
Excellent work!!! Nathan and staff are all so professional. The way they make you feel so comfortable. You know what they say, "time flys when your having fun" If your looking for portrait photographers, Nathan and his team are the ones to do it.
Shotby Tylon has an extraordinary work ethic and sense of customer service. He is prompt, professional, and wonderful about making the experience fit the customer's needs. I highly recommend this photographer!
Doreen has taken pictures of my daughter, my dog and my wedding! She caught photos of each occasion that will be moments that can never be replayed but caught in a photo to be remembered forever! My husband and I are truely blessed to know and have Doreen as our photographer. With the pictures of my daughter she took showed details and aspects surrounding my daughter but had a great focus her smile, her wrinkled nose her few teeth everything was brought out in the photos. Doreen helped me with what she may wear that could accent her bright blue eyes and yet to be able to stand out from the nature around her. With the photos of my dog she caught silly moments of him running around and checking out the other farm animals. To catch the moment of curiousity was priceless! The best photos that I am so grateful for was having Doreen as our photographer for our wedding. She set up a check list to ask what I wanted and what I may have forgotten. When the crazy day came she was there and flexiable with accomidating what was occurring and also helped out by organizing other things when my head was in the clouds from the happiness and craziness. Just as the day was ending and all the pictures we agreed upon and many more candid and more, the sun started to set, she was first to notice. The day was suppose to be high winds and hail, having a sunset was a true blessing and to capture that moment with my husband was awesome! I can't not wait to have Doreen take more pictures of my family and maybe some singles of me to feel get my sexy back and give me more self confidence! Because her pictures bring out every beautiful aspect of a person caught at just the right angle!
Courtney photographed my wedding. She was wonderful! She was very involved in everything making sure I had exactly what I wanted and more. She went above and beyond researching different ideas and different styles, and she handled every request flawlessly. She perfectly captured every beautiful moment that I will always be able to cherish. She made this experience truly wonderful, and I am forever grateful. I look forward to using her services in the future and would highly recommend her to others.
