Paul was fantastic! He took candid photos at a birthday party for us and totally captured the moment. We also received the images 2 days later, super fast! We will definitely use him again.
March 15, 2015 Hiring Doug Carter to be our wedding photographer for my sonâs wedding was one of the best things I did. My son had asked me to be the wedding planner for his wedding. It wasnât easy as the bride lived in Russia and the groom in Hawaii. But, from the first time I talked to Doug, he reassured me that it would turn out fine. He is truly a professional. He was everywhere at the same time yet totally nonintrusive. He and the videographer we hired worked out a system together and everything went smoothly. When the bride arrived two weeks before the wedding, we were able to set up a meeting in person with him. He was so organized, asked us the questions he needed and gave us ideas as to some pictures we hadnât thought of. The bride was as impressed as I was. He has had 20 years of experience in professional photography and it shows. He is one of those rare people who is totally focused on doing a great job for the customer. I was so impressed. He knew exactly what we needed and was right there to get the shots. He loves to take candid shots also and from his website they are wonderful. He actually came really early to the wedding site to set up then worked non-stop until the end of the evening. He squeezed in pictures of all my family and friends as well as doing shots of the bride and groom at different sights after the wedding and before the reception. If you are interested in a really excellent photographer who really âcaresâ, Doug is the person I would recommend you hire. I am sure you would be as pleased as I was. Gratefully, Sherry Whitmer-Hall
She was awesome with kids and took the pictures end to end of my son birthday event. I really appreciate her followup and work. Thanks Sonia
John was great!! He took pictures while myself and bridal party were getting ready, he was very professional and nice. While walking down the aisle I did not even know he was there taking pictures. He was amazing. He had great ideas for photos after the ceremony. I was very happy with our choice.
John took our wedding pictures for us, wedding party and bride+groom shots. He was friendly, had an easy smile, and made us feel relaxed. He did a great job capturing the 1920s feel I was looking for in our black and white shots. He captured the natural location well, and we loved the silly shots he took of us. Both the formal and informal pictures were great. We couldn't be happier.
Andrea is an incredibly talented photographer!! She was hired to shoot the wedding I was a bridesmaid in. She is punctual, professional, easy going and her prices are EXTREMELY reasonable. Andrea captures the essence of a person and it shows through her photography! She is very talented at her craft. I will be using Andrea for my own wedding !
Thank you Yale. Me and Aaron had a great time with you as our wedding photographer. You were amazing and fun especially with only a 2 day notice before our wedding. All of our wedding party had a blast with you and all the guests were really impressed. Thank you again.
Errich took professionalism to a new level. I planned a birthday party for my grandfather and he was the perfect additional to our party. My grandmother has Alzheimer's and is not always the easiest to get to cooperate but Errich was very patient with everything to get the right pictures. Errich got along with everyone and made everyone feel comfortable around catching the candid photos. The final photos turned out beautifully and he really captured every moment we never want to forget.
Stephen was awesome and able to catch the cutest moments of my sons first birthday party! Will definitely be calling him for future events.
Ms. Debbie was great! She went above and beyond for my son's birthday party! Not only did she help out, she was personable and professional! She captured the most amazing photos and I would definitely hire her again!
Martina was our wedding photographer and she was absolutely amazing!! Our wedding was by no means over the top or extravagant, but you wouldn't tell looking through all the high quality photos. All of our wedding party and guest felt so at ease and she was able to capture so many fun and precious moments I never knew were even going on. She kept in great communication throughout the planning process and well after to make sure we were comfortable and pricing was unbelievable. Following our wedding I worked closely with Martina to create our wedding album (a service I would pay even more than what she charges for!). Such a sweet professional who truly has a passion for what she does. You will not go wrong with her as your photographer.
Hired Ryan Rose Photography for my niece's first birthday photos and I couldn't be happier! She was an absolute saint with my niece and really threw herself into her job. You can tell she takes great pride in her work and it shows in her prints. I highly recommend her for any work with kids, pets, and anything outdoors. Would hire again!
she did a photography for my daughters birthday party and managed to arrange a video person for me too...she was wonderful very kind and was there for my entire event. im really very Happy with there work.
I hired Stan to shoot our large company holiday party. He was quick to respond to my posting and very accommodating with examples of his work and honored the rate he quoted on Thumbtack, which many others tend to backtrack on once you show interest. Setting everything up with him was easy and seamless, made me feel confident that he'd be pleasant to work with... and he was! He showed up on time to the event, introduced himself and verified what the focus of his shots should be, and quickly got to work. What can I say? Stan's photography is FANTASTIC. Our party was in a 3 floor space and included a rooftop terrace, and he was all over the party, collecting amazing candids and group shots, catching great angles and interesting pairings. The venue had a lot of moody, low-lighting and Stan amazed me by still being able to use flash that was flattering but not overpowering. We had over 200 people in attendance - many of them costumed - as well as intricate decoration and themed catering so there was a lot to capture, and he also got GREAT shots of the space to show the scale of our event. Stan was in touch with me the day right after our party, sending sample shots as he was editing them, and uploaded everything into our Dropbox folder for easy access. I would absolutely hire Stan again!
I hired Sherwin for my house warming party and was very impressed with his service. He came one day before to look at my place and had a conversation about how he was going to capture some strategic shots. He was very punctual and had a pleasing personality. My guests were all very comfortable with him. His photos were of excellent quality with perfect lighting and angles. I would highly recommend him for his service and will surely use him again.
Jessica did the weddings of two of my bridesmaids, so I had already been around her (I was in both of those bridal parties) and knew she had an awesome personality and was fun to work with. Their pictures both turned out gorgeous, so as soon as I got engaged I already knew who my photographer was going to be! She is just so talented and down to earth and it keeps the day from feeling stuffy or posed. I hate posed photos and wanted to just relax and enjoy my day without running all around, and she makes it so easy to do that. I feel like her pictures are a lot more natural and capture real moments and emotions without feeling fake, which I love. She kept me super relaxed and was really patient with my crazy bridal party, and the pictures are awesome! I couldn't believe how many there were and she captured a lot of little moments I didn't notice happening without ever being in the way. Most of all I love the pictures of me and my husband. We look so romantic and in love, and we are NOT picture people, so we were blown away by how pretty they all turned out. I couldn't be happier and me and all my girls highly recommend her!
George McLemore has photographed several of our birthdays and family parties. The most recent occasion documented a celebration of our great granddaughter. Not only do we have beautiful images of our son, his daughter, and his granddaughter, but a reflection of the feelings that accompanied them. George always seems to capture the moments that made the event special. Always the professional, he never fails to give us many outstanding photographs from which to choose. When we need a photographer, why would we call anyone else!
RJ was great from the beginning! He was very responsive to my inquiry and professional. We emailed a couple of times and then we had a conference call to confirm details. He made selecting songs easy and was very attentive to what type of music we wanted at our event. From start to finish the music at the party was exactly what we hoped for. He was easy to work with before and during the party. And he kept the dance floor full! I would highly recommend him and use him again.
I have now contracted a couple of events to Mehul , one a dance recital the other a birthday party, We were very impressed with his work. His eye for catching moments is great and his work ethic and punctuality is great too ! I would definitely recommend Mehul for all kinds of events artistic or not.
She is absolutely amazing! You can see it in her work. She has shot my engagement, the party, my wedding and someday soon when we have children. She is a dear friend. Everyone raves when they see her photographs and honestly they take up most of the decorations in our walls. She is the reason I remember so many beautiful things about the special events in my life.
Megan was an awesome photographer!! She was able to do an engagement, first birthday, and family pictures all in one session. I will definitely be hiring Megan again. Renee😊
