My wife and I spent a long time researching wedding photographers for our big day. We were very happy to find Mary and Ali. Communication with Mary and Ali was consistent, effective and efficient. Throughout the course of day, they were on time, focused, professional, and attentive behind the lens. Overall, they exceeded our expectation and we would definitely recommend them to our friends. Thank you Mary and Ali!

Maria was beyond a pleasure to work with! She is a seasoned photographer with years of professional experience as well as top of the line equipment and resources. Maria made me feel super comfortable and took her time to walk me through all aspects of the shoot explicitly which made the whole experience an amazing one. I have worked with many photographers for various reasons, and Maria is hands down one of my favorites. I would recommend her services to any and anyone looking to get professional photos taken for any occasion!

Mo is one of the best photographers out there. The quality of his photos were phenomenal. He documented all of the important moments of my daughter's sweet 16. I definitely recommend hiring him for any event that you may have.

Tina and I had a 90-minute headshot session at the International Center of Photogrsphy in midtown Manhattan. I asked Tina to engage a makeup artist to prepare me for the shoot; while I think she did a good job, she could not stay for the shoot itself. The last two photographers with whom I have worked had theirs stay for the duration, and it was helpful to have the makeup rechecked and touched up - especially for a woman my age. I think Tina is a really good photographer - and an artist in her own right. But sometimes her focus on expression and composition means that she doesn’t always see the details of her subject. There were numerous shots that she selected for my review that I couldn't use because a stray lock of hair was falling into my eye. I am not the one looking through the lens, and I can't see what the photographer does. One word, and I could easily have fixed it. We also spent the majority of the session with me wearing the same blouse - even though we had selected 2 additional wardrobe changes. As a result, the number of usable photos in those two changes was somewhat limited. We did come up with a number of really good headshots; Tina retouched my favorites herself, and I am having two of them reproduced as I write this. I appreciated the energy and encouragement that Tina brought to her work, and I would recommend her work to my fellow actors.

I retained the services of Digital Merit Photography to photograph my Spring-2013 graduation day at the City College of New York. I knew that graduation memories are one of the most precious in life and one of the most to cherish year after year. Therefore, I decided to hire a professional photography company to do the shoot. I did not go wrong when I went with Digital Merit. Every shot they took came out perfect. In addition, the services were very affordable for me as a student, yet very professional in quality. With the state of the art cameras and powerful lenses, Digital Merit staff was able to capture the great moments of my award-taking ceremony on the stage from very far (guest seating was behind the student seating arrangement). The knowledgeable staff's instruction helped me to pose correctly for many perfect shots. Staff was very courteous, competent, and quite experienced. They took many more pictures that I thought I would be possible. I brought my wife and a friend and staff took several group pictures of us that are very nice. I'd highly recommend their services for graduation photography, and more. I am very impressed with both the original and the retouched photos!

I loved every minute of my session with Philicia. I'm a tough critic when it comes to my pictures because I've taken pictures with a lot of photographers, but she was the best photographer I've ever had by far. Not only was she great at giving suggestions but she also combined both of our visions which seems to be really hard for photographers. It's either they don't give any direction at all or they overpower you with their suggestions, but Philicia did neither. She was the perfect balance. I didn't even know my pictures could come out so great! It was truly art. My portraits came out BEAUTIFULLY! My family loved them and I wouldn't shoot portraits with anyone else. She was simply wonderful and I can't wait to shoot again. My birthday's coming up and already we're thinking of great locations and outfits. I'm so excited to do more!

It was great working with Kaddy. I hired her to take photos for my sister's graduation and the photos looked great. She arrived on time (which was important because it was time-sensitive), and was very professional. She got great candid shots of my family as well as posed photos. I would definitely recommend her to someone looking for a photographer :)

Amazing photographers. We had Roge and Fernando cover our rehearsal dinner, and the entire wedding day. We received the wow photos the day after the wedding, and they look amazing! We highly recommend working with Roge and Fernando. They are incredibly kind, talented, communicative, and will make sure that good photos happen!

I searched for a photographer online and did my research by looking at reviews as well as the websites of several photographers. I was impressed with Jovana’s photos on her website so I booked her for headshots as well as some dance poses. I’m so glad I did all that because Jovana was an absolute pleasure to work with. So professional and made me feel at ease. The images came beautiful and I have so many great shots to choose from. I couldnt be happier!

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!

Laura was amazing! She took the time to get every shot just right. While other photographers might keep shooting and rush a bit, Laura slowed everthing down until the shot was perfect; lighting, position, vibe, etc. I felt in excellent hands with Laura. I really relaxed, which is key in regard to getting good shots that look like me. She made me feel that her goal was to make me comfortable in order to get the best shots possible! She is a sweetheart. She’s been great at doing light retouching. Nothing drastic. My agents are thrilled, and so am I. I will definitely go back to Laura!!!

Randy was my photographer for my wedding in August and from start to finish, he was amazing to work with! He is so nice, so professional, helpful, courteous and tries to answer as quickly as possible. What drew me to Randy's work was the fact that the pictures were real and seemed like a family or friend took the photos - they were of course a higher quality- but they were staged and too artistic. He caught the people, the love and the fun in the room and that is what was most important about his work. He is so thorough, checking out the venue before the big day, on time and really works with you to get the photos that you want while of course giving his professional opinion. I wanted all the bride/groom and family photos done before the wedding and he completely accommodated me. I also made a big deal about how i wanted to be a part of my wedding and cocktail hour, not posing for pictures continuously and missing out on everything. I even told Randy during the ceremony in the nicest way possible, I don't want to know you are there, I want to be able to dance, eat and drink. He really took it to heart, he got amazing photos of everyone but was never in anyone's face. What shocked me more was the fact that when we got back from our honeymoon, our photos were ready! They were all gorgeous, Randy's gallery and ordering website are so easy to use. He also makes any photo corrections that you need and makes sure you are happy with them before he places your order. The photos come quite quickly too. Overall, I would definitely recommend Randy and if i ever needed photography services again, I would work with him again.

I hired Chez Tobia Productions to photograph my graduation/graduation party. I quite enjoyed my experience with Tobia. She was friendly and very professional. She captured the key candid moments of my graduation, the laughter, tears, and just overall excitement very well. For any posed pictures, she was again professional but also spoke with respect to my family members and I and was able to do everything quite promptly.

Emily is one of the top photographers I've worked with. I hired her to shoot at a fundraiser gala and was extremely pleased. Here's me with two of my guests – isn't she great at capturing the moment? Also, Emily had the photos to me in extremely quick fashion. What a great experience!
