Kris aims to give you the biggest bang for your buck while providing a high quality product. He is incredibly flexible and his products, thus far, have exceeded our expectations. We loved our engagement photos and we are looking forward to final products from the wedding ceremony and reception.

We had an open photo booth and roaming photographer at our corporate year end party. The pictures turned out great! Our guests had a fun time with the photo booth and we are able to see all of the photo booth pictures too. We will definitely be using Party Favor Photo again!

I’m happy to recommend Josh to anyone looking for an engagement photographer in the D.C. area. From our initial conversations on Thumbtack to the final delivery of our photos, Josh was quick to respond to our questions and concerns. He even FaceTimed with us before the shoot to answer our questions. To be honest, my fiancé and I were a bit nervous for the photo shoot (we are more comfortable as “behind the scenes” folks), and within a few minutes, Josh made us feel completely at ease. He made our personalities shine through in our photos, and we are really proud to show our photos to friends and family. Thank you, Josh, for your beautiful photos and impressive service!

Gabriel “Gabe” Martinez (The Marvelous Real Photography) works very hard for his shots. The lengths he goes to for his pictures, he not only wants them to be the best, but wants to meet his clients’ expectations. Both me and my guests was very impressed with him. After seeing Gabe's photo gallery and discussing my 50th birthday celebration vision with him, I immediately knew he was the one! As requested, he integrated videography to capture the music performances to retain with my event memoirs. I booked Gabe without seeing another photographer and it was the BEST decision! On my big day, Gabe arrived early, set up, and after a quick run through of the event flow with me, I was completely at ease knowing that Gabe would capture shots in a journalistic photography style that I will cherish for years to come. His professionalism, creativity, cheerfulness, and fun-loving interaction with me and my guests created a great atmosphere and experience for everyone. He knows how to make you feel comfortable event while the camera may be surprisingly aimed directly in your face — He makes taking photos fun! During the event, I sneaked a peek at the photo display. Gabe caught me peeking and showed me a few of the shots. The pictures were stunning! With his creative eye, he captured the timeline of my event while shooting photos in the most unique places. I highly recommend hiring Gabriel “Gabe” Martinez (The Marvelous Real Photography) for any engagement. Gabe exceeded my expectations and I will contact him again for future events.

Clyde did our engagement pictures, and he was, by far, an artist with a camera. They came out better than we ever imagined, and the turn around was a lot faster than I was expecting considering how amazing the quality of the work was. I would highly recommend him to anyone.

D.I.M was very professional with our engagement pictures. I asked them for some last minute items and they were able to handle the requests with zero issues. Our photographer was even able to get a table with two chairs by the harbor set up with the bottle of champagne I asked him to bring. I would highly recommend D.I.M to anyone. Thank you for making my proposal that much easier!! Sincerely, Tony

My experience with Elmo Laing was a powerful trigger of personal memory---from light, to set-up, to processing. By all accounts, he is a meticulous craftsman. Through his eyes and indelible images of my party guests, I am still reliving this momentous occasion ---my 60th birthday celebration. In photograph after photograph, Elmo captured every mood and motion of the affair. He documented the dancing, the band, the striking group portraits, the cake, the room decorum, and of course--ME. His photography has played an important role of constructing memory because the stories leap from their stills. His images are stimulants for remembering---happy lives, families and friends, and what & how we celebrate. I hover over these images! That’s what fantastic photographers do….they show the environment, they show what they saw and they work to compose the best for YOU. That is exactly what Elmo Laing produced for me. Oh, wait a minute, did I mentioned that he is patient, polite, and precise with posing & positioning—a good photographer. Thank you, Elmo for your artistry, storytelling and technical ability.

My experience with Miranda was one of my favorites ever with a photographer. I do amateur modeling thanks to Miranda who got me started! Some photographers are extremely tough to get along with and she is someone who can adapt to any situation! She makes you feel like family when photographing you. She always has music on which is nice considering some photographers like it quiet. She is always having a good time with the photo sessions and is always so accommodating. She did my husband and I's engagement photos in the middle of a snow storm in old town Alexandria and she was sooooo patient as I was freezing and wanting to stop. But the hubs and her were persistent saying the shots would be great with snow in them. She has done all sorts of photo sessions with me from engagement & boudoir to frontals & portfolios. I love working with Miranda and would suggest it to anyone looking for a family/personal photographer.

Oh my God... Where do I begin? Priscilla is hands down the best photographer my husband and I have met. Pri brings so much energy and passion to what she does, that it's contagious. Her customer service from the moment you reach out to when she delivers your images is spot on. She is open to ideas, creativity, and let's you take control of your shoot, if that is what you are into. Dealing with Priscilla is not like dealing with someone you hired to take your pictures, but a friend that just so happens to be taking your pictures. I do not regret a single thing about choosing Pri as our engagement photographer. We are amazed by the results!! We definitely will be recommending her to all our friends and family, and will be using her as our family photographer for years to come. Thanks Pri!

Kelly recently took engagement pictures for us and our wild and crazy dog. I needed the pictures taken right away and she was quick to get a time scheduled that worked for us. She was so much fun to work with and made the photo session pretty painless and stress free. My fiancee even said he had fun. She was patient with our doggie and took the time to get some really great shots that we LOVE. I highly recommend Kelly.

We hired Lizzy for our engagement photos. Though in the middle of winter, she found some really interesting staging for the photos in the park. She captured a variety of shots, so lots to choose from in the end! We'll definitely use her again.

Dawn Elliott at Snap n Giggle is awesome! She is a very talented photographer and so creative with her poses. She has a keen eye and artistic sense, and her retouch skills are nothing short of Ninja - like (if you need to have a little tweak on those crow's feet.) She is a consummate professional in her work and interactions with clients.

Justin and I started a conversation a little over a week ago. I was looking for a photographer who would be able to take us some couples photos for the holiday season. From the very start, Justin was punctual and he continued to be punctual through to the delivery of the photos. Often times when people hire photographers, people complain that photographers lose momentum once they’ve been offered the gig or once they’ve received payment. This is absolutely not the case with Justin. Justin’s punctuality definitely has been a plus point all the way. I also appreciated that Justin works with clients across varying price points. In addition, I must say Justin’s offer was definitely reasonable given that we’re situated in the DMV. Interacting with Justin, one of the first things I let him know was that I just wanted a quick photo shoot that would be a leg up from our usual selfies. Justin understood exactly what I was expecting out of our photo shoot. Justin and I worked out the details over text, and the photo shoot was quick and effortless. Though I didn’t end up calling him myself, I did pass on Justin’s phone number to a few colleagues of mine - he had such a great offer that I had to share with others! On that note, if you need to hop on the phone to talk details, just ask for his phone number. I am absolutely all about Pinterest and all things Pinterest related. I had ideas of poses but when we met up, my mind sort of went blank (I blame the cold!) and Justin had great ideas which resulted in some beautiful photos of the two of us. I also have to praise Justin’s understanding of space, lighting, and photography concept. Justin took a handful of posed and candid photos, which we both appreciated. Not only is Justin talented, but he is easygoing too. And that’s definitely a plus point when hiring a photographer. If you can’t be yourself around your photographer or if the photographer can’t get you to feel relaxed and at east, then you might as well throw in the towel because you won’t get quality photos. Thank you, Justin, we love love love our photos!! PS: Hire Justin. If my photos are any testament, I’m sure you too will be more than satisfied with yours!

I seriously could not have asked for a better photographer. Cameron and his team were punctual, friendly, understanding of the pressures of the day and captured everything we wanted to express in our wedding photos and more! There is a reason he's so well reviewed and popular. Hands down the nicest guy to work with throughout our entire wedding planning process. Don't settle. Cameron is the BEST!
