My girlfriend hinted (like beating me over the head with a 2x4) that she hoped a photographer would be around to capture our impending proposal. So I did what any 21st century guy would do and hit the internet. I emailed several photographers in the tri-state area, all getting back to me with varying fees and availability. I found Neil Blake on Thumbtack. His personal website showed his experience, so I explained to him that I would like for him to secretly photograph my proposal. I detailed that I had hired a caricaturist (if youre reading this and also are in the market for a caricaturist, look no further than Jessica du Preez) that would be drawing me on one knee proposing to my girlfriend though we would be sitting next to each other on a park bench. He agreed, and we were set. The big day was a beautiful October Sunday in Hoboken. So perfect, in fact, that there were literally dozens of people taking pictures (with what looked to me like high-end cameras). My girlfriend and I walked around the general area that I had laid out for the caricaturist to set up and for Neil to be ready to find us. I literally had no idea what Neil (or my caricaturist looked like), and so I wasnt sure if people were taking pictures of us or of the scenery (and it turned out that it was Neil taking a few of those pictures, he really did a wonderful job at being so discreet). Once I found my caricaturist and the drawing was in progress, he would walk by non-chalantly (pretending to be one of these everyday photographers enjoying the beautiful day) and marvel at how well the drawing was coming along and ask my caricaturist if it would be alright if he could take a picture while she sketched and ask us if he could take our picture (of course it was okay! But my girlfriend was still not entirely in the know. It was all for her, and it was perfect. Neil was fantastic. I cant believe how they went above and beyond to really play the parts that I asked them to play). He walked away and took some other discreetly long-distance shots, shots from behind, everything. You can really tell the entire story from the pictures leading up to the caricature, during the caricature, after she said yes. And I think thats more than I could have hoped for when I hired him to be our photographer. After the gig was up, he brought us around for 30 minutes or so posing us against the skyline and taking literally hundreds of pictures. I really feel like I got a lot for my money, and I dont see how I would do it any differently (and that goes for not only Neil, but also Jessica). I am still blown away by how flawless the day turned out for me and my now fiancée partly due to the fact that I did not know what Neil (nor my caricaturist, Jessica du Preez, for that matter (whom I also highly recommend, but that is for another review)) looked like, partly because I was hoping for true perfection, and partly due to the stress of getting several pieces (timing, two people (caricaturist and photographer) working together that have never even met, etc) into place without my girlfriend knowing (okay, so she knew it was coming. But she did not know how and what I had planned, so she was still very much in the dark). At the onset of this review, I had hoped that it would be more about the professionalism and expertise of Neil and less about me and the proposal, but let my excitement and joy be a testament to him. For any function at all, consider hiring Neil Blake to capture the story. He will do a superb job.
Kaddy was a real pleasure to work with! I hope to work with her again in future! She is a skilled photographer for sure! An area where she really stands out from other photographers I have worked with is her ability to capture great action shots (in this case of dancers)! She got a lot of really great shots that were very complimentary! (In my experience, folks who try to photograph dancers take a lot of really awkward-looking shots! Not Kaddy!) I recommend her highly!
We hired Matt for sports photography and were very pleased with his pictures and high quality prints. He was very responsive and a pleasure to work with. Highly recommend!
Kim is a very talented photographer. She has the patience of a saint and does what ever it takes to get the perfect shot. Kim has helped me surprise my husband with family pictures including my pet, she showed us every picture and with her keen eye we got the multiple great pictures. She also shares the out takes the candid shots which end up being some of my favorite and I also have them hanging in my home. I used her for a princess photo shoot birthday. party What a great experience! I used her for modeling pictures for my daughter, sports pictures for my son and christmas pictures. I wont use anyone else, shes my go to photographer. I cant say enough about the magic and memories that she captures. The professionalism, patience and passion she has for photography and capturing the memories of your special event, moment, or portrait sets her above the rest. I highly recommend Kimberly Pinto Photography.
I first worked with Saher Jafri while I was performing for my high school on the international show. Saher was of one of the photographers responsible for taking photos of the performers. I myself have never been a fan of having my photos taken, mainly because I don't enjoy having to wait to get my photo taken, and second I usually don't like the results. Working with Saher on the other hand was kind of a different experience. To start of with she does not take her sweet time like other photographers do in taking the perfect shot. She asks very little from us the subject. No awkward poses nothing, just sit and be yourself. Her main talent comes with how she manages to capture clear crisp photos in minimum time and requiring little work from us, the ones being photographed. I worked with Saher for only a few days and it is safe to say that I had a very good experience with her. She was very professional despite this being a High School event she took her job very seriously. Surprisingly I even enjoyed the photos she took of me. I would like to work with Saher more in the future as I think she has a lot of talent and certain talent in keeping fidgety and nervous customers like me calm.
Lukman was not just an excellent photographer and great with pictures but also a thorough professional. He arrived on time, mingled with guests and captured, among other pictures, some candid momets as well. Finally in the end when we were winding up the party he, very sportingly, accepted kids request and did a few cart wheels with them. He came as a photographer and left as a friend.
Ms. Neysmith was hired to document the crew of The Chieftain racing yacht at the 2013 Manhassett Bay Falls Series Regatta on Long Island Sound. Her keen eye and quick instinct during this fast paced, national level event proved her to be expert in sports photography. The brilliant colour and black & white photos that she created are of the finest portrayals of Chieftain's crew in action. She comes with the highest of recommendations. Images available upon request. - A.H. / Cockpit First Mate, New York, NY.
I have used Jrose Photography on more than one occasion. Both times he has exceeded my expectations. Not only was he professional but he put everyone at ease, as if we knew him forever. He was able to capture everyone at their very best. He was able to not only take great pictures but his pictures captured emotion. If anyone was to ask me to refer a photographer I would definitely recommend Jrose Photography. I already have!
Patti is professional and captures great shots no matter what type of environment! She took all the pictures for our school sports (action), school play, school yearbook, senior candids, etc. I then hired her to take pictures for my daughter's Sweet 16 party and she captured the mood and excitement perfectly during the entire night.
I had few experiences with Alona as a photographer , The first time was with my kids. Alona took photos for my daughter’s Bat Mitzva book. I have to say that my daughter is very shy , but with Alona everything was so easy, she immediately made her comfortable and created a fun photo shoot. My daughter was so happy with the experience and with the amazing results.The second was "1 year old smash cake" photos section. Ii have to say that it is very hard to made little ones corporate and do what you want. Alona has the talent to coght the perfect moments, faces and movement!!! The other experiences were few events that i was involved at and Alona was the photography for: sport event, parties that we both took part at. Her talent to capture the moment, the atmosphere, the energies are just amazing. I am so happy to have all those amazing memories Alona captured with her camera. Can't wait for the next time! M.M
Joey photographed our gala fundraiser and a few of our youth theater performances. He was very easy to work with and did a great job.
Margaret was a total joy to work with. We needed action photos of young athletes for our indoor sports facility's website. She was cordial, on time, and efficient in capturing some of the coolest sports photos I have ever seen. Margaret is amazing at what she does, and I highly recommend her for any professional photography job you need done.
I was referred to Pete by a mutual friend for engagement and wedding photography/videography. As big sports fans, my fiance and I wanted to do something a little different for our engagement photos. When I asked Pete what he thought about shooting outside Yankee Stadium and Citi Field, his enthusiasm only made us more excited. All I can say is that the photos were more than we could have dreamed of. It was as though Pete was creating art that we just happened to be the subjects in. His passion for photography is not hard to see when working with him. We can't wait for the wedding!
Jeff's photos of my son playing baseball are amazing, to say the least. He captures him in a way that I never could. He knows sports and how to get the best shots. Stunning photos, beautiful work and so clear it's amazing to see. I would recommend him not only for sports photography but his photo session with my daughter are equally as beautiful. I love Jeff's work and I highly recommend him as a photographer.
Amanda exceeded all of my expectations when she photographed our wedding pictures. She is an amazing photographer, and captured the love that my husband and I share. Many of my friend say things like "I can see the love in your eyes" which comes through in Amanda's photographs. Anyone can take a picture, but only a professional photographer can capture those once in a lifetime special moments.. and that is Amanda. She took photographs that I wasn't even aware that she was taking, and they take my breath away! I loved working with Amanda and she makes you feel like family.
"Ken was amazing! He photography talent is on the next level. I couldn't believe how awesome my pictures came out. Sweet sixteen photographers are so expensive, Ken had the best prices around, still expensive but absolutely worth every penny! Thank you Ken for capturing amazing memories!"
