Michael was extremely enjoyable to work with,from the start to the end of the entire process! He was super helpful in explaining all aspects of hiring and working with a photographer, and was also fun and flexible; my fiancé and I had a blast during the shoot, enjoyed every minute of it, and Michael was open to all my great (and silly) suggestions for poses etc. which made the process much more relaxing. He went above and beyond to edit and provide us with high quality engagement photos by the end of our work with him. I happily recommend him, even to our own family and friends.

Budget Bride Photography DOES IT ALL! We couldn't have been happier with our choice in photographers! I was particularly nervous since we were planning this last minute affair and was afraid that the photographer wouldn't understand what it was we wanted for our wedding. Not only did Budget Bride deliver with a wonderful photographer who was kind, flexible, and creative with her ideas, but they listened to what both myself and my husband had to say and what we were willing to do and specific things we did NOT want. Although I have only seen a brief preview of what was captured on our day so far - I can honestly say without a doubt that this business was excellent beyond all of our expectations!!!! Thank you so much for helping us, for being a part of our special day and for creating the memories we will share with our families for years to come!!!

As a non-profit organization that grants wishes to seniors citizens, we work with dozens and dozens of photographers all over the country. Chris did an awesome job capturing the essence, the smiles and the joy that our wish recipient and her mother experienced being reunited after 20 years. The pictures he took were of superior clarity, quality and creativity. From his responsiveness in communication, to the speed at which he got the photos back to us, we were very pleased with Chris, his professionalism and expertise. We would not hesitate to recommend Chris to anyone looking for a stellar photographer and hope to partner with him again in the future. ~Wish of a Lifetime

Chris is an amazing photographer! He captured exactly what we wanted (with our little growing family; our son being weeks old) through photos that we will always cherish. Thank you for coming out to our home and being so easy to work with - you are truly talented. Quite the artistic eye. Turn-around time for the photos was very quick and professional. Highly recommended!

Christopher proved to be a very reliable and skilled photographer when I needed last minute help for a nonprofit event. I booked him just the day before and he came on time, and was thoughtful and made great pictures. He followed up quickly with photographs. I'd definitely hire him again.

Christine was the photographer for our wedding in Pittsburgh (Epiphany Catholic Church for ceremony - Grand Hall at Priory for reception). She was an absolute pleasure to work with from the beginning to the end - She was very accommodating to the package we were looking for (2 photographers, 10 hours, location changes) and did a really good job with pre-work beforehand, such as requesting a list of all desired pictures, what types of effects we liked, etc. On the day of, she showed up ahead of schedule and was incredibly professional and organized. She was also a good "coach" in regards to our timelines and remained very calm and patient with our group the whole day. We just received our first sneak peak and I couldn't be happier with the pictures! She captured the "feel" of the entire day and the photos are exactly how I had hoped for. Christine was affordable and delivered excellent service - I highly recommend her for anyone looking for a wedding photographer in the Pittsburgh area! Thanks Christine!

Couldn't have been happier with our wedding photos! My husband and I are super camera shy and not only did Christine and her husband Adam manage to wrangle some amazing shots of two camera shy, non-photogenic people, they had a great eye for using all of our venue's surroundings to add to our photos. Not only were they great photographers, but they were truly nice people to work with. It was about a million degrees on our wedding day and we all felt like we were melting outside taking the photos, but they kept their cool and helped my husband and I keep ours. I absolutely would recommend them to anyone looking for photographers in the future.

Mark was great to work with. He was easy to contact and was responsive with any questions and meetings. He was the only vendor who actually contacted us to go over details and events before the wedding which was a relief knowing everything was in order and we greatly appreciated. We got married two weeks ago and have not seen our wedding pictures themselves, however, our engagement pictures turned out beautiful and I have no doubt that our wedding pictures will be even better! Also, for our wedding we wanted two photographers in order to have multiple perspectives on the day. Rosanne worked with Mark for our wedding and they worked together beautifully to keep a positive flow and help set up and gain new fun perspectives for they day. I would highly recommend Mark Simpson Photography for your wedding.

Mark was our wedding photographer on 08/19/16 at the National Aviary in Pittsburgh and his photos turned out amazing! Mark is very laid back, along with his assistant Roseanne Martin! We were very relaxed knowing that they were well prepared and experienced. Mark was able to capture so many emotions and small details. Every candid and formal photo has a unique story to tell of our day. We are so glad to have found Mark through his "Thumbtack" profile and were able to get a custom quote. We definitely got great quality that fit within our budget! Thank you so much!

Alyssa was amazing! She did such beautiful job. She was fun and didn't mind the goofiness of my husband and I have with our friend's. Which was a big part of us finding a photographer! We didnt want everything so serious because we are outgoing and fun people. She was definitely the right choice! And I would choose her all over again! I love my little sneak peak she sent me is my wedding, not even 24 hours after the event took place. I cannot wait to see the rest of the pictures she took. I just know they are going to be great. Thank you so much for capturing the best day of my life!

We needed a videographer (with just two days advance notice) for a memorial service. Nicky arrived early and was so unobtrusive that I forgot he was there. Without my asking, he took footage of people arriving and greeting one another, and also at the reception afterwards. He created a Highlights video and had good instincts to include the most important parts of the memorial program, and he communicated well and incorporated my suggestions in the edited video, making me feel like he cared a great deal. The video and audio quality was excellent, and it was completed faster than I expected. Overall, an excellent experience, great value. I will recommend Platinum Fire Productions to anyone needing a high quality video and a videographer who is very easy to work with.

Verified review

The videographers were great! We hadn't originally planned to have video but are glad we did. They went above and beyond in getting videos of guests and stayed all the way until the end of the reception. They also agreed to a special request for us and weirdly one of the best things was how laid back they were - they faded into the background, let the photographers run the show, and just captured everything without us really even noticing! We look forward to getting their finished product and being able to truly know how great their abilities are!

I have been working with Gary Yon Photography for over 20 years. I own a video production business in Pittsburgh and enjoy collaborating with Gary on projects. I have worked with numerous photographers and Gary stands out not just because of his creativity but he is also fun to work with. He takes the stress out of the shoot for the client. He has a great personality and connects well with people on all levels. Not only does he do fantastic corporate work but he is talented with event and personal portraits as well. We have gotten many compliments on our family photos that Gary has taken for us over the years. I highly recommend Gary, and I do all the time to my clients and friends. His pricing is also very reasonable. Best Regards, T J Clark Owner, Video Masters of Pittsburgh

Laura did a family photo shoot for us in June 2014. She was wonderful. That day my son took a later than usual nap and she was very flexible and met us a little later. We did the photos at Settlers Cabin Park. Our sons are young and she did a great job taking photos in a variety of poses but quickly. The photos came out great and I was very pleased with the final product. It did take a few weeks to get our CD but Laurie had told us she had to purchase a new computer. Overall we were very happy , would use Laurie again and highly recommend her!

I have used Jamie on more than one occasion for my photography needs. I added some photos below. Her turnaround time on my photos was amazing I had a sneak peek before the end of the day.

Lindsey is absolutely incredible! Her creativity, passion for photography and ability to make you feel at ease in front of the camera is impeccable. My husband and I could not have found a better photographer to bring our dreams to fruition. She has incredible attention to detail and takes the time to research the ideal setting for your perfect shots. Thanks to Lindsey we were able to share the news of our pregnancy and gender reveal with all of our friends and family back home on the West Coast. Our friends and family are still commenting on how amazing our photos turned out and it wouldn’t have been possible without Lindsey! Thank you for creating memories that will truly last a lifetime!

I hired Kim in October to do a mural for my daughter's room. She sent me pictures of her previous work, and after speaking with her on the phone, she was an obvious choice for me. Kim was friendly, open to feedback and suggestions, excited, and eager to start. I was very pleased with the outcome as was my 6 year old daughter. I will definitely contact Kim again if the need arises. Through our conversations, I learned Kim is a photographer as well. I see family portraits in our future!! Thanks Kim!! We love it!!

Erin has photographed my family for two separate special occasions. We hired her to photograph my daughter's 5th birthday party and we hired her to take family portraits for the holidays. For both of these, Erin was thoughtful, warm, skilled, and professional. She worked with our budget and made sure we got the kinds of photos we wanted. She also edited and turned them back around to us very quickly which was great. The photographs she took are a visual archive we will treasure for decades to come. I highly recommend hiring her for your event as she is equally adept at candid and posed photographs. And she captures really wonderful spontaneous moments.

Please hire her. I cannot recommend Dena enough. I was apprehensive to use a photographer from Thumbtack. I am so lucky i did. Dena was so professional and was in contact with us for over a year planning our wedding. She scoped out our venue a week ahead of time to understand the lighting. She sent out questionnaires about pictures,etc. She was even an hour early for our shoot so definitely punctual. She was super attentive, super professional and overrall great to work with. We have been to weddings where photographers have "gotten in the way" at ceremonies to get the shot. I never even noticed she was there. It was fantastic. Thanks again Dena.

We love how Dena made us feel comfortable through the entire experience. Even though we were planning our wedding from out of town, she took the time to meet with us when we were in town and was flexible with communicating with us by email and phone. Dena also helped to ease our minds the day of our wedding. Her relaxed nature put us at ease and it showed in our photographs! After receiving our pictures, we were so happy to relive the day and we couldn't believe that there was only one photographer for the day! Dena captured every moment!
