Beyond impressed with Tina's incredible talent and flawless ability behind the lens. She spends careful time and does not make you feel rushed in front of the camera. She goes the extra mile to ensure you are most comfortable at all times. She was also one of the nicest, most friendly, energetic and trustworthy photographers I've worked with! I am thrilled with the final product and her creative touch added to my port.

We could not have been happier with our decision in choosing Doug Sanford as the photographer for our family photos. He was the first photographer to respond to our needs and price range. He accommodated us with a Sunday shoot, was prompt, professional and worked very well with our family of 11 (which included a 2,4 and 6 year olds). Everyone remained comfortable and relaxed during the entire shoot which included many different locations and extreme heat on outside shots. He did not rush and took every shot we wanted and more. I have just seen the entire portfolio of shots and are ecstatic to say the least. Look forward to working with Doug again on future family photos.

Winstead is an outstanding photographer! This was my very first photo shoot and he prepared me for it exceptionally! He recommended the type of attire I should bring, he recommended how to pose, which stances to make and when! In the end, the pictures looked prolific! Crazy part is, you get so much outstanding service and his price is the most competitive out of all the other thumbtack photographers recommended to me! Save yourself the hassle and stress--hire Winstead and you'll be glad you took this recommendation! Be blessed!

Wow! Kris was our wedding photographer a year and a half ago and was also our family photographer for our daughter's birthday this past weekend. He really listened to what we wanted out of the photo shoot, but also had great ideas himself. He was patient and flexible, and the quality of his work is wonderful! We will continue to use Monumental Arts and Kris for future needs. Awesome job!

We hired Party Favor Photo for a community festival that involved a LOT of kids and people who had never used a photobooth before. The staff was super professional and patient. They made sure each person got a photo, helped set people up in the right place to get the best photo, and moved the line along quickly so everyone could get a photo. As far as communication beforehand, they were very responsive and the online process (contract, questionnaire, etc.) made things very easy. They customized a background for our event that people are VERY excited about. As a non-profit working in low-income neighborhoods, many of our residents don't have photos at home, so our residents were excited to be able to have fun family photos. A few said they were going to frame them! And the customization added another layer of uniqueness to the experience. Finally, they were generous enough to work with our budget (as we are a non-profit), but I would have NO problem hiring them at whatever rate - they were fantastic! Other members of our organization are wanting to use them for future events once they saw how popular the booth was and the quality of the photo printouts. Thanks so much!

THIS IS THE PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE DECADE! I come from a huge family and I have been to a lot of weddings and also worked with a lot of photographers in the past. Gabe by far has been the absolute best of the best! He was prompt, he was professional, and he was witty and charismatic all at the same time. Even when photos weren't being taken, he had us all smiling ear to ear. By the end of the night I had a few family members asking for his business card! Loved loved loved him!

To start with, He is really great. Hands down, great! I am an awkward person but I immediately felt comfortable and confident to have a fun shoot with him in Georgetown. I needed fun and flirty headshots photos for my blog so nothing too serious but he was eager and helpful to tackle the task. He is professional and courteous and his turn around time is quick (seriously its amazing)! I was looking for several photographers but they would all tell me that I get 5-6 photos for double the price. I will always recommend him! Thanks for everything, Robert and I look forward to working with you again!

Recently, my family was granted permission to lay a memorial wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier. It was about 24 hours away when I realized that we had no way to take photos because my family would be busy presenting the wreath. I was worried that we had traveled so far (The NorthWest US) and had planned every detail and that I might not have any way to capture the moment, when I found Arthur. Arthur was fantastic to work with and answered questions at all time of day and night. He is so professional, and doesn’t need coaching. He just gets it; which is what makes a true professional and really easy on the client. His pricing is very reasonable and the turn around time is amazing. I get the photos tomorrow! Thank you Arthur!

One of the best Photographers the DMV has to offer! We actually came across Jamaal while he was covering my Soror's Wedding in Baltimore this past year! We had been looking for a photographer for the longest time and we were farmiliar with is work, but watching him while he worked is what sealed the deal for us. He floated around the room effortlessly leaving so many smiling faces in his wake, including ours. We didn't even need to see the final photographs, we were already sold(The Photographs were pretty darn awesome too!). We immediately reached out to Jamaal to schedule our engagement shoot and he didn't disappoint! My partner and I were brought to tears by the images. His turnaround is unmatched! (1-2 days). If you're on the fence about booking Jamaal, consider this the push that gets you over the fence. Book him. Now! You will not regret it, we didn't! Not one bit!

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.

He came to my house to do some portrait-type photography. I appreciated that Joe was relaxed and friendly and didn't seem rushed. I got the photos back from him very quickly. He was helpful in suggesting good backgrounds as well. I was very pleased with the end result. I think he'd make a great family photographer also.

We hired Lizzy to help us take pictures for my father's 90th birthday. We did a lot of family portraits and singles. We also used Lizzy to take pictures of the event. Lizzy was sweet and very professional. She suggested many ideas during the picture taking process. She was very patient with my father who moved slowly. Thanks Lizzy you were great.

We had an exceptional experience with Little Palm! We are so happy with the photos Talah took and our experience working with her. I was worried that it would be difficult to capture our son smiling (since he's a tween and was not enthusiastic about getting family pictures taken), but Talah worked hard to develop a good rapport with him and got some fantastic shots that captured his true personality and many shots of him with a bright smile. If you are looking for someone who will take a mix of traditional and artistic shots and has an outstanding eye for photo composition, look no further. We looked at several photographers before settling on Little Palm, and we are so happy with our decision! Take a look at her pictures compared to others, and there is no comparison.
