I have a business in food industry, but my business is typically focused on South Asian community. I was looking for a professional who can actually click me some great pictures of my products considering my product as a global product, Jim is the person who knows how to click great shots, but he also knows how to lay out the whole picture, he is not just a photographer but he also imagines a great shot in his mind who leads a great end product. I am highly satisfied with his service, quality and images for my business. I am sure he would take your words and give you high end service. If you are looking for a professional who can take great shots for you, then JIM is the guy. I Strongly recommend Jim to everyone.

A quality photographer is more than simply clicking buttons on a fancy camera. John is an experienced photographer who is able to utilize the number of events and portraits he's done to capture unexpected moments. When hiring someone for a service, I look for honesty, professionalism, punctuality, quality, and skill. John exceeds expectations regarding all aspects, especially punctuality because he shows up early not simply on time. Being familiar to locations is crucial to photography since the essence of a photo is not only to capture the individuals in it but the scenery and mood behind it. When shooting my portrait, John was able to make me feel comfortable and guide me to various poses as I am no professional model. He provides quality photos in a timely manner as I was eager to see my portraits. I have received numerous compliments on my portrait shots. I highly recommend John because he's professional, skilled, friendly, and personable. He is upfront about his price quote, no hidden tricks!

Maria took our family portrait in her studio. The session was an hour long and we didn't feel rushed at all. She did a wonderful job and she has a great personality while trying to get everyone in the correct poses. The photos looked great and I was very impressed with her work on the photographs. She digitally added a textured background to the photos which is exactly what I was looking for. She also suggested taking photos of just my son outside and I'm so glad she did because I absolutely LOVE the photos.

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.

You will not be disappointed. Professional. Experienced. Talented. Very like able and easy-going personality. Delivers what is promised. My husband and I loved working with William! Of all the decisions we needed to make when planning our wedding, our photographer was one that ranked high on priority. I first saw Williams profile on thumbtack, and then reviewed his website. I shared the website with my husband and we planned a call to ask some questions and get to know him a little more. We knew after we spoke to him, that he was going to be our guy. He is confident in what he's doing, which is very reassuring. That confidence and professionalism was demonstrated during our event and it kept us (me) calm! He arrived well before the ceremony was to begin, and began doing what he does! We expressed to William that our ceremony was small and intimate- 25 people only and that it was just family so we wanted to be present as much as we could. My husband and I wanted photos together, but we didn't want to miss spending time with our family in spite of it. This is where his experience was so key- he took us outside and had an eye for exactly the best places to take some shots. He made us feel so comfortable, that our photos came out natural, sincere, and genuine. I was afraid of anything looking "staged" ... But everything came out natural! And, gorgeous! And more- we weren't gone long from our reception. We also were careful to express that we didn't want our photographer to be in anyone's face, since it was such an intimate experience- On this he delivered too! We hardly ever noticed him at all!!!!!! This was great because he captured so many candid moments of us and our family- it did not feel like he was another guest at the wedding- he was in the background doing his thing- but that never compromised any photos because so many special moments were captured. William was thorough in making sure he took the family portraits that we wanted, and was available for anything we needed. I received many quotes from photographers while shopping around- William was hands down the best value for his rate. It was less than 24hrs before he had a sneak peak of our photos available online for us to peak at and share with family! We got married on Saturday- so this means that the rest of Saturday and/or Sunday, he was working to deliver this to us- Thank you William!

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.

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.

Jaysn was very professional, quick to respond but most of all he is a super nice guy, easy going and patient. My three young kids loved him and his lovely assistant. It was wonderful having another person to help with the kids. He picked a great location and understood my vision of what I wanted for my family portraits. I'm so happy with my discussion.

Glen was very professional, he took pictures of me in his studio. What amazed me most was how unbelievably they were edited. What seemed to be regular pictures, all of a sudden, after edits, became magazine worthy! The man is an artist, period!

Elizabeth is one of the most naturally talented photographers I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Her visual intuition and compositional mastery lead to her capturing strictly unique moments. Her work shows proficiency and an understanding of technical photography. She consistent;y identifies thematic and narrative elements in her portraits, which leads to a greater resolution of her subject as a whole. I cannot recommend a better professional photographer.

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 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!
