A five-star rating doesn't do justice to the quality of Tina's work. I wish I could give 10 stars! If you need a photographer, stop looking -- Tina is the photographer for you! She made the headshot session so easy and enjoyable, which for me is a first experience because I'd never been comfortable in front of the camera. I showed up to the shoot feeling thoroughly unprepared and was sure the whole thing would be a disaster. But Tina assured me every step of the way in an effortless manner, as her enthusiasm flowed so naturally out of her love of what she does. And the result? Nothing short of amazing. I have never been more pleased with my photos (not even my wedding/engagement photos!), and these were taken on a day that I felt frazzled head to toe, inside out. Tina also was very quick in producing the photos and touching up the ones I selected. I literally was blown away by Tina's professionalism and skills. Give her a try, and you'll never want to use another photographer!

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.

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!

Doug is a seasoned pro and was a delight to work with. From the initial call, scheduling, billing to the actual shoot, Doug made the process seamless and enjoyable. He's great at reading his clients and making them feel comfortable and at ease. I've worked with several other photographers for headshots and my experience with Doug was the best, hands down! I highly recommend him and will use him again in the future.

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.

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!

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.

Great experience with Greg. He was the first photographer to respond to our thimbtak requet with the most reasonable price. He accommodated our schedule and was flexible with the location for the shoot. Greg provided recommendations for locations as well. He was very responsive to questions O had leading up to our appointment which I appreciated. Greg showed up for the photo session in a very timely manner. Greg was very professional, but easy going. We didn't have any particular ideas in mind for the shoot and relied on Greg to lead the way. He did this with ease, but also allowed us to make suggestions. Greg worked well with both of our children ages 1 and 5. One year old wasn't in the best mood toward the end of the shoot, but this was not a problen for Greg. He got wonderful shots! We had many pictures to choose from once the shoot was over. Our friends and family loved our holiday cards that werw created by us with Gregs's pictures. We already have photos framed and on the wall which is HUGE for the procrastinator that I can be! Love, love, love the photos and enjoyed working with Greg. Will definitely call him the next time we need a photographer!

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!

I first met Joe Lee in 2011 when I spent seven days with him as we traveled with the Wreaths Across America convoy from Maine to Arlington National Cemetery. Joe conducted himself with the utmost professionalism at each of our many stops along the way. He captured the special moments on audio, video and in still shots enabling me to recount the entire trip as if I was there in person again. This past July, Joe flew to Minneapolis to volunteer as the photographer and videographer for a two day memorial event held in honor of my son, an Army Ranger KIA in 2009. The morning of the first day, my house was struck by lightning and a fire ensued. Joe lost some of his equipment but quickly replaced it on his own so he could still do what he came to. This was a chaotic situation that others may have become discouraged from, but not Joe! He stayed the course and never faltered from his commitment. Joe Lee is not only very professional, he is a very personable guy whose positive presence will add to any event. Highly recommend!

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!

I was looking for a photographer for one of the most important and anxious moments of my life, and with less than 48 hrs to plan and execute. I wanted candid photos of me proposing to my future wife. I am actually from St. Louis, but needed a photographer in DC - and I needed a professional that could nail these shots the first time. If you are looking for a photographer, I very strongly recommend going with Gabe. Not only did he return beautiful shots that our family and friends are still talking about, he was completely responsive and 100% reliable. Gabe worked with me throughout the entire process to make sure that we were on the same page, so that we could accomplish this surprise engagement scenario together. He was able to capture shots without revealing the surprise moment, but was able to get wonderful pictures. Gabe produced quality images that we will cherish our entire lives - and he nailed it the first time. If you need someone solid for your important moment, go with Gabe. - Austin

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!

If you want natural looking, spontaneous engagement or wedding portraits, Joshua is phenomenal. I was looking for a photographer that would capture the energy and dynamic between my fiancee and me. The photos came out playful like we are, but with a serious artistic quality that looks worthy of hanging for a gallery show. Joshua was also very good at getting the both of us to relax and interact without feeling self-conscious, which is a big plus if you're not used to being photographed.

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!

Jamaal knew exactly what I wanted and he understood exactly how momentous this occasion was for me. My photos are absolutely gorgeous and will last for a lifetime. He even had additional photos available that were so unexpected and beautiful. Jamaal gets the assignment, and captured moments. Everyone keeps asking me who was the photographer???He is insightful, considerate, smart, and sharp. He gets the energy in the room and everything needed for a wonderful photo shoot. You won't regret hiring Jamaal. I'm hoping to use Jamaal for most of my work if he is available, and he will definitely be the photographer at my future wedding!! Whenever that happens! LOL

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.

I contacted Julie for some professional heads hots for my work profile. Her response was instant. The whole process was hassle free. On the day of actual photo-shoot, I expressed my inhibitions about how not so comfortable I am in front of a photographer. She not only lightened up the whole session but went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. After the photo-session, she was spot on with her timing and sent me all the edits. For all my future photo-shoots, she is my go to person. She is top notch as far as taking head shots is concerned and at the same time she is interpersonal. I would gladly recommend to all my friends and family with similar needs. Thanks again Julie.

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.

We couldn't be more pleased with the professionalism and the quality of this experience. We are always in need of photographers and Two Jakes Photography met our expectations. A senior executive sat in on our last program that Two Jakes to photograph. 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!

I couldn't be happier with this experience. Dennis was so patient - I could tell that it was important to him that we get plenty of great shots and in various poses. He helped me with how to stand, how to tilt my head, etc. so my pictures were flattering. This made a huge difference for me because the last thing I know how to do is model. I also liked seeing the pictures on his camera as we went, so I knew I was getting what I wanted; I didn't have to wonder if I would be happy with the outcome. And, my gallery was ready SUPER fast. This was worth every penny. His great personality was a bonus! I already know I will be hiring Dennis again.

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.

We hired Shoshana for our baby girl's first birthday. She is professional and has a very positive attitude. She was able to capture our baby's most natural moments and to shoot perfectly with natural light. She was also very nice with our guests and managed to take great family photos despite all the distraction. We have been very happy with her services and would definitely hire her again.

A great photograph requires more than just a camera, it needs an artist’s eye for color and composition, a stage-manager’s ability to set a scene, a professional’s experience with lenses, shutter speeds, and lighting, and a talent for editing and digital layout. Robyn’s photographs are amazing—she did my daughter’s graduation pictures, portraits of my children, and recently, she took some wonderful pictures of me and my partner. She makes me look so good that I had her do the author photos for my books and website! Robyn always manages to capture something special about the subjects in her photographs—the portrait of my two kids perfectly reflects who they are, and how they feel about each other. In one perfect image that I’m looking at right now, while I’m typing this. In addition to all this, she is a lovely person who makes what can be a very stressful experience (I HATE having my picture taken) into something that is not only fun but rewarding. I just can’t recommend her enough.

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.

My experience with Images by Renée was phenomenal! Karen shot a wedding in my home, which can be very challenging. .She arrived early and was able to get some dynamic shots before the wedding. She was very professional and shared great perspective on what shots would leave the bride and groom in awe. The photos were out of this world ...I will definitely be using her services in the near future.

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!
