I found Doug on Thumbtack and was pleased to have him photograph my wedding this past October. First, I was so pleased to meet him before hand and see more of his work so I knew what to expect. But more than that, I realized that Doug is an exciting, interesting, and cheerful person which made the experience even better. He has an artistic eye and really made some beautiful memories that made me excited to have him shoot my big day! During the day, Doug captured fantastic moments and was flexible when we wanted him to get a specific person or time. He was over all energetic and cheerful! I had a few friends that are amateur photographers also take pictures for us and Doug took the time to answer some of their photography questions and giving them tips - going above and beyond his call... Finally, my pictures came out beautiful and in a timely manner. I can't thank him enough for capturing our day and producing this precious keepsake!
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!
Mirror Image Photography were very professional. Me and my family enjoyed the experience we had with them and also is proud to say that Mirror Image Photographer were my photographers on our wedding day. Thanks,
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.
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.
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
Getting married is the most important day for a couple prior to having little ones, so capturing it was VERY important. As a self proclaimed Bridezilla, I was extremely particular and adamant about details. Working with Jamaal before and on our special day really eased a lot of my worries. He did an amazing job on our engagement photos so we were excited but still wanted to make sure he got our big day right. We met a few times and boy did he amaze us. He blended so well with our guests, paid attention to detail in the picture edits, and truly brought out the beauty of that day. We are so thankful that he's so talented. I definitely recommend him for particular brides ;-)
Great experience working with Gethro. He was one of the few photographers in the area who could provide printed photos on the spot (with our company logo, no less) and we were very happy with his work.
As a Communications Director I have worked with many photographers and Jose was one of the best! He was punctual and worked easily and patiently with a multi generational group ranging from 14 months to 75 yrs. (and a dog). He had a great sense of lighting and where to place people and was able to work quickly, but not hurriedly because the photos were taken outside and it was cold. He gave us the images very quickly and everyone loves them! I'll definitely use Jose again for both personal (as this session was) and professional photography needs.
My fiancé and I hired Saint. Elmo to take our engagement pictures. He was great to work with, made us laugh and feel comfortable. You can tell he enjoys what he is doing, gets creative with capturing a moment. We spent more time taking pictures for an outdoor shoot than I expected. We took several pictures at different locations. We were thrilled with the turnaround receiving the proofs and edits. I highly recommend Saint Elmo and would give him more stars if there was an option.
Metin did a wonderful job as the photographer for our wedding. Would hire again!!! Thank you, Metin!
Gagan is a professional photographer, she stayed longer to ensure the coverage of the whole event. I am waiting anxiously to receive the photos.
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.
Nandor was the photographers at our worship service last month in Washington DC. He was reliable, communicative, very creative and professional in every way. I can only recommend him as an excellent 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!
Amazing photographer and an even better person 😊 she was so calm, professional and easy to work with !! She did an awesome job and I am so happy to have found her 😊
Shoshana is one of the most professional photographers I have worked with. She is simply amazing! I hired her for my daughter's 6-month milestone party photos and I am beyond happy with how the photos came out. She is very creative and has a great eye for detail. She has a very pleasant personality and my daughter was very comfortable with her, too. I highly recommend her!
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!
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.
