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!

I needed to hire a professional photographer to feature one of our outstanding alumni from Western State Colorado University. Since the alumni lived in Washington, and we didn't have any contacts in the area, we carefully researched local photographers and spent hours pouring over reviews and samples. I'm very pleased that we selected Doug Sanford as our top choice. He responded very quickly to all calls, texts, and emails. Doug handled the arrangements for the photo session with the alumni, and produced exceptional pictures which exceeded our expectations. The price was exactly as quoted and a good value for such high quality work. This couldn't have gone more smoothly, even if it had been in our own town. Doug made my job easier. Do yourself a favor and go with Doug Sanford.

I had a great experience with Doug. I chose him to do a professional headshot based on viewing his work on his website. I've worked with photographers for many years as a marketing communications professional, and I recognize talent when I see it. He asked about what I do professionally, and what I wanted to project in a photo. He did not disappoint.

Winstead Barnes is amazing and I HIGHLY recommend him / his company! We hired him to do on-site hair styling (updos) for my daughter's Sweet 16 party, and ended up also hiring him for our event photography needs as well! He was extremely kind, professional, flexible, handled our needs with immaculate precision, and his hairstyling exceeded our expectations by much! We simply showed him the hairstyles we wanted and he was able to make our hair look gorgeous! Thank you for EVERYTHING, Winstead! We will stay in touch and contact you for our future needs as well!

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!

On two occasions I have called Winstead literally at the 23rd hour!! I called him for a photography event one hour prior to start of the event and he went out of his way to get to my event! Very professional!! I called him again today at the last minute to do my daughters makeup for prom! He showed up on time, prepared and professional. He did an amazing job. She looked gorgeous. One of her friends hair got wet enroute to our home and he took the time to touch up her hair. First class person! First class professional!

William is a true professional in every sense of the word. His expertise in achieving the goals I had for new professional portraits was top notch. He intuitively understood what I was going for before I even said the first word about it. He was flexible with storage options for the photos as well. Being in the spotlight as a magician makes it necessary that I have updated photos for publicity purposes, but I hate mostly every photo of myself but with his extensive knowledge of incredible lighting effects, William was able to create no less than 20 incredible images for me to pick from. I will definitely be making Tamarack Images my go to photographer for all my professional photos from now on and highly recommend that everyone else do the same.

We were SO thankful to find Monumental Arts and K on such short notice - we had our wedding in a museum in Alexandria and our friend, an amateur photographer, fell through just 2 weeks before our February 21st wedding - I was so scared because the wedding photos are SO important to me, I even still have my parents album and their wedding picture at home! He met with us and we discussed our wedding plans, laid out our timeline, and he showed me the most beautiful wedding albums and enlargements from weddings he photographed before - my fiancé even liked them! We decided right then and there Even though we were just having a shorter wedding, nothing all day, we still went with his more expensive collection (I think it was the Sapphire Collection) because we knew we would be getting an album and wanted two photographers. He showed up on the wedding day and walked us through everything we asked for - even suggesting some outdoor pictures I didn't expect to get because the weather turned out beautiful!! Plus, he stayed an extra 30 minutes after things starting running behind, which was so nice of him. We are so thankful for his work and professionalism! We met with him to discuss the photos we want in our album and to order enlargements, and he made it so easy to do everything. I have two other friends getting married this year in Northern Virginia, and we've definitely recommended K and his team to them!

amazing photos After comparing different photographers, we decided to go for Monumental Arts and I really thought we would be disappointed. Not at the photographer, but how the pictures would turn out because our son cried the entire session! Kris was very patient with our son and allowed us to try to soothe him. To our surprise, the photographer actually captured good shots of our son!! He was able to capture many non-crying photos! I can't wait to order them! Beautiful newborn photos! Highly recommended!

Greg shot Rob Halford of Judas Priest for me awhile back, and the results were outstanding. What's particularly impressive is that he was given practically NO time to shoot by artist management – 15 minutes to set up, shoot and get out. Less than optimal conditions. And Greg handled it with total calm, great humor and produced an amazing assortment of shots. I was, in all honesty, blown away. To get such amazing results in a high-pressure situation with no time is a RARE feat. I say that after having worked with professional photographers all over the world for the last 30 years. Greg Dohler is one of a kind, folks — don't think twice.

He was just absolutely amazing! His pictures are even more amazing! He asked ahead of time what rules we had and how he can be respectful of the venue. He captured exactly what I wanted him to capture with little direction from me. One thing I liked most about him was the booking, he wasn't too pushy like the other photographers I talked to and I didn't feel like he was nickel and dime-ing me like the other photographers. I hope if I have an event in the future that he will be available to come photograph it! Thank you Greg!

Party Favor Photo was the perfect fit for our event, and so easy to work with. The green screen was a winner - fit our backdrop to our Western theme so perfectly, and people loved that they could choose the background! PFP was very accommodating, and responded to every question with extreme promptness. Set up and breakdown was quick and easy, and they even gave us an extra half hour of time at the end of the night. Our photographer was friendly and flexible, and the photos were beautiful and printed immediately. Definitely would recommend!

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.

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!

My company hired Bearashkin for our annual holiday company-wide party, and the pictures turned out very well. The shots rally captured the great atmosphere.We've been hosting this party for over 15 years and it's a pretty big deal, so the board decided to hire a professional photographer for the first time to take pictures for our website and for all of the employees. It was a great experience, there were many great shots and people put them up around the office. The photographers didn't interfere with the fun, but rather enhanced it since everyone wanted snapshots of them and the festivities. Overall, great service and followthfough, we'll probably hire them again for next year's party.

Joshua is one of the best photographers I've ever met. From the beginning of my search for a photographer, Joshua's work and professionalism stood out among the others. While I needed headshots, I also wanted something different, something other than the generic canned ones we've all grown accustomed to seeing. I wanted something casual and spontaneous but certainly not a selfie. As soon as I saw Joshua's portfolio, I knew he was the right one for me. This conviction was confirmed even before I met him in person. Joshua was forthright and proactive in laying out the logistics of what to expect in advance of our appointment. The day of the shoot, he arrived ahead of schedule and allowed enough time to talk with me about his style, his work, and listen to what I wanted and expected. Once the camera started rolling, he made me feel comfortable and at ease and gave me step by step directions of where he wanted me, and what he wanted me to do. I didn't feel like I was posing but stood and acted like I normally do. This gives a much more natural, effective, and stand-out photograph, and I am very pleased with the results. Joshua is friendly, personable, highly skilled at his trade, and very conscientious. He's a consummate professional and has very reasonable rates. I highly recommend Joshua and encourage you to take the time to familiarize yourself with his work. Next time you need a photographer, you now know who to call.

I have worked with several photographers over the years and Joshua by far is the most impressive. Everything about the whole experience was top notch professional. He was incredibly responsive, flexible, and accommodating working around my schedule. The location he chose was simple, perfect, yet modern - exactly what I wanted to convey with professional headshots. During the shoot, he continued to walk me through several poses, and he took his time with me to calm any nerves. He was patient and fun to work with! Hands down the best photography experience I've had, and I will definitely use his services again!

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!

Working with DIM Productions was phenomenal. Coordinating beforehand was simple and straightforward, and during our event they were very accommodating and flexible to our specific requests and needs. They provided our pictures and video quickly after the event, and all the pictures turned out great. We are proudly sharing with friends and family. They also had video at our event, for which they provided an edited cut that captured everything that happened during our day. They even enhanced it in a few ways that we didn't see coming, and so we were appreciative of that. Overall, we had a tremendous experience and recommend DIM Productions to anyone and everyone.

This was, without a doubt, the very best corporate photography experience I've ever had -- and I've been around. :) From the outset of my inquiry on Thumbtack, Dave kept in touch and communicated continuously. His estimate was exactly what I'd hoped. The experience: exceptional and outstanding. This assignment was challenging, having to do 213 professional headshots in 12 hours, as well as shoot candids at our 60th anniversary party. I didn't know how we would do it but David came up with the brilliant idea of having two photographers shooting simultaneously. Not only did it work, but he and his assistant were an utter joy to work with: outgoing, happy, professional, kept a perfect pace, and knew how to put a bunch of introverted engineers at ease. The outcome: beautiful headshots, and fantastic candids. I cannot recommend Dave highly enough. Don't look at anyone else -- he's The Guy!

David was great to work with from the shopping phase to finish. I had a complicated situation - needed to try to replicate a past photographer's backdrop for new photos taken by David. David was very patient and responsive when corresponding with me (many times!) and the 3rd party photographer. His quote was very straightforward and fair, and he even threw me into the headshot lineup and took photos of me (no charge). Upon initially reviewing the work of 4-5 photographers, David's headshots were the most unique and well done, I thought. Also, Dave's crisp company logo appealed to me and subliminally gave me confidence in his work as well. Dave is pleasant, flexible and capable!

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.

I literally planned this in two weeks. He was the third person I spoke to, he promptly got back with me and was even accommodating with his time. Even though this was last minute, he provided so much more than I was expecting. My pictures and video came out super nice and I appreciated his creativity.

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!

Beginning with responsiveness, Jake’s replies were quick and concise, answering all questions and leaving me with a very high level of confidence. The display of professionalism is highly noteworthy for punctuality and enthusiasm, particularly in setting up and explaining processes and plans of execution. The end result was far greater than anticipated because the images – produced in a dark setting of dim lights, black walls, and floors – were truly "professional grade." In sum, I highly recommend Two Jakes Photography. I have made them my "go to" photographers for all future events. They were masterful at capturing a night filled with magical moments.

He watched Jake take photos of the session and at one point remarked "I can just tell, by the way he is capturing these photos, that they are going to be great! THAT is a great photographer!" We are so pleased with the results!

Dennis truly understands the needs of his customers . I was totally at ease in front of the camera.Dennis takes the time to work with his models to bring out the best in them. All of my photographs came alive. I highly recommend Dennis Soans Photography, not only for head shots and family portraits, but events as well.

Dennis is an excellent photographer. He made me feel very comfortable. His equipment and setup are highly professional. He took many shots and let me review them until I found several that I was perfectly happy with. The fees are very moderate and the delivery is very fast.

I loved Shoshana! Even I requested a photographer the day before my anniversary party (last minute), she was able to give a quote and she came earlier than expected to the photo shoot location. She is very flexible with dates/times. She was very easy to communicate with and beyond professional the whole session. She made my whole family and friends feel very comfortable. Shoshana has an incredible talent that allows her to truly reflect the personalities of the people in her photographs in a natural way. She has good eye for different shots, she was giving amazing ideas for poses and lighting and location Shoshana is very easy to work with, and very professional! I don't think ever using another photographer will ever be an option.

Shoshanna is an amazing photographer. We are definitely going to make her our family photographer. We worked with Sosi several times and every time we felt like we couldn’t have made a better decision. Not only did our pictures turn out beautifully - but she was incredibly easy to work with from beginning to end. She has an amazing and very artistic eye for any kind of photos. All the shots we have are full of color and life and do not resemble your typical staged shots. We loved her work. We highly suggest meeting with Sosi and booking her for any upcoming photo needs you may have - she's worth every penny!

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!

Robyn has become my family photographer. She has done family photos, senior photos, prom photos, even baseball and field hockey photos (and I mean action shots, not just the kids posing with their equipment). I love each and every one of them and would never consider hiring another photographer. She does do posed photos but she really shines when she gets the casual shots -the moments you weren't expecting to be camera worthy. Parents' of small children, her sessions with the young ones are play sessions for them. She understands that children have a small window of attention and focus and she works with that instead of against it. You won't be able to figure out which pictures you want to keep because there will be so many. Another great service she offers is that she gives you the digital image, which most photographers don't. It's great having the image for cards, photo albums, etc. I can't say enough about Memories by Robyn!

I contacted Robyn via Thumbtack, I was searching for a photographer for our annual company party. It was very last minute, she was pleasant and professional as we ironed out the details. Communication was outstanding!! She arrived on time, if not early. I did not have to give her any directions, as a photographer I feel as though she did her job. She was open to any and all suggestions I had. Will we hire her again? ABSOLUETY!!!

I can't say enough good things about Rachel. She met with me before the wedding and took time to get know us. She has a wonderful creative eye for settings and a knack for capturing the spirit of the event with her candid photography. Our staged group photos worked smoothly. I received my photos quickly within a few weeks of the wedding. Mostly, Rachel is a smart, intuitive, and sweet person. It was a pleasure to work with her.

Rachel is a real pro - if you are looking for beautiful, real, crisp, clear portraits, engagement and wedding photos, family photos - anything - look no further. Rachel instantly made me feel at ease in front of the camera and knew exactly how to guide my fiance and I to capture authentic and natural photos. She is brilliant at using natural light, too. We could not be happier!

Images By Rene'e did a phenomenal job for an event I hosted. The photographer was very professional and organized. I loved the way that she captured the images of my guest. The clarity of the photos showed the true essence of my event. It was as if the guest were unaware of her presence. She was not disruptive and have the guest to pose during the event. Which was great because it allowed her to record that moment(s) in a photo. Her images truly gave my event some life. I was amazed at the work of this photographer. I am looking forward to working with her again.

My boyfriend and I hired Karen to take some holiday portraits. I'm not sure what I expected, however the pictures were beyond what I hoped for. The whole shoot was very professional. Karen had a lot of good ideas for different posses and props. The picture quality was top notch. All the images were crystal clear and high resolution. We get so many compliments on the pictures. It was also nice having a large quantity to choose from, and a coffee table book to share. Karen is now our resident photographer. You should definitely hire 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!

Justin was an absolute pleasure to work with! He was incredibly responsive and he’s a very talented photographer. He asked me what I wasn’t looking for, so I sent him a few samples from Pinterest. He analyzed the lighting and composition of my samples and recommended the perfect spot for the session. He helped guide us through the session so we knew how to place our hands/tilt our heads, etc. He also honored our extremely tight timeline and got the photos back to us in about 24 hours! Which is completely unheard of, especially given that he had 3 sessions the same day! My husband and I are so pleased with the photos, we couldn’t be happier! I highly recommend Justin, and would definitely book him again in the future!
