Lenny Rogers Photography set up a photo booth with lots of room for group shots. A skilled technician and lots of props made this a wonderful addition to dinner and dancing to entertain our guests! We went home with a copy of all pictures. I highly recommend this service.

Michael got me feeling my very best during the shoot, he experimented with many poses, several locations, and varied the lighting. I LOVE the images he captured! He captured authentic images of me at my best! I had plenty of wonderful images to choose from; and I am delighted with the final images. I highly recommend Michael for portrait photography!!!

We hired Abbe Foreman Photography for an outdoor family shoot and had an awesome experience. Abbe was patient with our little ones and took the time to ensure a successful shoot. We were very happy with the final results. Abbe was very responsive and turn around time was swift! Will definitely recommend her and use her services in the future.

From my first encounter on Thumbtack, Matt was friendly, helpful, and respectful. I have not hired a photographer or had professional photos done since my thirty something children were tweens. Matt answered all my questions and was responsive to requests and ideas. He was not familiar with the location I wanted to use, but he was open to anything. He explored the location in advance of our appointment and offered suggestions for our photos. He offered ideas and collaborated with us regarding our needs and desires for groupings. He took a variety of photos with different groupings Within our family. He was patient with our grandchildren, a strong minded 2 year old and 3 month old. He was personable and spent time getting to know us before beginning the photos. He was creative and professional. He was LGBT friendly. I would highly recommend Matt for informal photos of your family. The professional skills he presented should carryover into any photography session, informal or formal. Thanks Matt!!

Maria was such a delight! She did an outdoor family portrait session for us and we absolutely loved the end result! She really made sure that we were happy with the shots during the session and she was such an easygoing person to work with. As a bonus, she did a great job entertaining our 6 month old!! We are so happy with our photos, and we definitely recommend Maria J Photography to all!

'Brilliant' is the only word to describe Nina's work. Thank you so much Nina for capturing Misha's first b'day bash. You just not only captured the beautiful photos but memories as well - and we will cherish that our whole life. It’s difficult to photo-shoot 1 yr old but the way you arranged, was fantastic. You captured all special moments that matter a lot and are absolutely amazing. I re-live the whole session when I see the photos. You are an incredible photographer and (most important) very humble and nice person. With that said, you also put us in a problem now - its getting difficult to pick favorites/best :). Thank you again for doing such a wonderful job.

Vikrant has consistently gone above and beyond his job to satsify me and my family. He demonstrates how excellent his customer service, just as much as his love for taking the photographs. I've been to other photo studios before and notice the lighting looked bad or the photographer had a "get you in and out" attitude. But when I went to Vikrant Studio I've seen him work with customers and demonstrated his expertise in all aspects. If you don't like how the photograph came out he often goes an extra step to help. Vikrant is clearly a “people” person and shows his clients how much he likes working with them.

We hired Elizabeth for family portraits at the beach with my children and grandchildren. She spent the first 5 -10 minutes of the session with us to understand what we wanted out of the session and she then helped guide us with several excellent suggestions that enhanced the beautiful portraits she delivered to us. I was also amazed on how she handled my grandkids who were trying to get a little wild but, she certainly has a talent with kids and was able to rein them in. I would strongly recommend Elizabeth’s work. We are so happy with the beautiful portraits that capture our family memories.

Phil was absolutely amazing to work with. He was in constant communication with me about our needs. He arrived early on the site (at his own suggestion) to check it out and was very nice and attentive when I met him. His photos came out absolutely beautiful and I was in awe that he was able to capture the exact essence of the event perfectly (in this case my son's BarMitavah which is difficult to do with kids running around everywhere). I was so happy (and amazed) how he made certain to photograph every guest and there is nice variety- some of the pictures are quite artistic and some are very nice portraits- a perfect mix. His rates are super reasonable and he generously (and quickly) gave us access to all of the photos taken with no marks on them for us to keep at no extra charge and will print out those we want. If you want a fantastic photographer book him now!! I will post photos later.

Verified review

We loved William. We hired him on relatively short notice and he was very flexible and easy to work with. His prices are incredible - both for New York and for the quality of work he offers. He shoots with Canon L-series lenses, which are (arguably) the best lenses you can buy, and he also brought along backup equipment - the mark of a true professional. He is also a member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association, which is an important accreditation to look for. We had an incredibly difficult time finding a photographer whose final product was high quality and not just cheesy, posed wedding photos with weird editing. Neither of us particularly enjoy having photos of us taken, but he made us feel at ease and everything seemed very natural. In the ceremony (which was tiny - only 12 people) we didn't even notice him. We haven't yet received all of the final photos (which should be around 700 photos in total), but by the next day he had almost 50 photos already finished for us to view online. We were not extremely organized coming in and that's something we should have better prepared for as the onus was on us to come up with locations for photos as well as different family groupings/wedding party, etc. That is completely fair and to be expected of a photojournalist-style photographer, just a heads up that while some photographers will make recommendations and suggestions, this is something you would need to take care of. Overall, we really just can't say enough good things.

Vandana did my maternity photoshoot and she made welcoming of our first baby really special for us. She is a very enthusiastic photographer and suggests creative poses with excellent backgrounds. From the time we hired her, she was completely involved in the entire process suggesting the location and clothes that will be best for the shoot. She gave us enough time during the shoot to change and decide things as we wanted. The shoot was once in a lifetime experience for us, and I would recommend others to hire her for once in a lifetime experiences.

Erin did a fantastic job on our portrait shoot which included my 2 daughters, 6 and 5, who have little patience for shot after shot. Her patience and creativity to keep the little ones engaged and the shots of their letting off steam, spinning in circles and rolling on the ground capped off a session full of well staged and lit photos.

He created an overall positive environment in which everyone could relax and enjoy themselves. And most importantly, the photos came out amazing! I highly recommend Carl Kosola productions.

Thank you, John! We booked John just a few weeks before my son's Bar Mitzvah to do a portrait/family shoot at the synagogue. John showed up on time, worked well with the family, and in addition to the standard shots we listed, took a few "in the moment" shots. Those are some of my favorites!

Our experience with Maria was incredible. As a photographer myself, I was nervous to entrust my wedding photography to just anyone. When I was without a photographer almost a month before my wedding, I contacted Maria. I am so glad I did. She worked with my budget, with my request for prints and digital images, and arrived EARLIER than scheduled the day of to take even more photos than I anticipated. Maria went above and beyond to ensure my family, friends, and I were comfortable in front of the camera. The photos are so genuine - Maria has a great eye for the moment and the personality to bring out the laughs! When we received our images, the feeling of that day resonated again and I so cherish the work she did for us. Thanks, Maria!

Verified review

Our family was looking for a outdoor portrait and we used 2PK for them. We wanted to use the beautiful backdrop of Philadelphia. We discussed our ideas with Paul and he came up with great suggestions and different parts of the city that we hadn't considered. It was wonderful to have a couple different spots downtown and iconic structures and statues too. We were very pleased with the portraits and value for our money. We ended up selecting a lot of pictures because we couldn't decide between them all! Great job and we will use 2PK again!

Most of the photos I've had done by Mike are live action or in motion situations. He has an amazing way of catching the most perfect shot every time. The final result is always a clear beautiful picture with expert lighting, background and cropping. High quality work by a great photographer!

    She is super sweet and professional!! She is a young, budding photographer who is much more willing to work with your likes and needs and budget more than the older photographers I've come across. She has a lot of great ideas especially for outdoor shots. She is very willing to use your ideas and suggestions--actually she encourages it! Give her a shot, you won't regret it!!
