Donya Photography: what do users think?


Ajay Kori: Deeba was incredible! Hired him to capture a surprise proposal and he went above and beyond. The week leading up to the event he helped brainstorm locations for the best photos and opine on strategy. Walking up to our chosen proposal spot, I was initially worried because someone was sitting near where I was going to propose and would be in the shot. Turns out, it was Deeba making sure nobody else got in the area for the perfect proposal. He was so clandestine my fiancee had no idea anything was about to happen until I was on one knee. She was so surprised she never took off her glasses during the actual proposal and he noticed and right after we were done kissing had us quickly re-enact the moment without glasses or her purse. The shot speaks for itself. Would highly, highly recommend for anything important you want to capture in the most beautiful way possible.

Lauren Kuhlik: I would highly recommend Deeba as a wedding photographer! He was extremely easy to work with and very responsive. My partner and I had a very small wedding and did not want too much focus on the formal photographs. Deeba was able to set up a perfect "first look" before the ceremony, got through the formal portraits/family photos quickly, and was able to quietly take photos of the ceremony and post-ceremony celebration, without being in the way at all. All of the photos are extremely "us." He was able to really capture the joy and laughter as well as get some beautiful intimate shots of us and took great photos of our families.

Sarah Joy Street: My husband and I booked Deeba for our wedding and we were so comfortable working with him. This was both our first times working with a professional photographer and we felt very comfortable working with Deeba. He directed us into poses which was very helpful. The photos turned out incredible and we are so thrilled with how many photos he provided.

Michelle Severance: I'm so happy we chose Deeba for our engagement photos! The entire process was flawless and I couldn't have imagined a better outcome. Deeba was always very quick at responding and even had suggestions for the location and time of our photos. He showed up early to our shoot and he helped calm the nerves immediately. Throughout the shoot, Deeba knew all of the spots in the park to capture the best photos. We had so much fun walking around the park with Deeba and formed such an immediate connection that I often forgot we were there for photos. Now, the end result. We received the photos quickly and they were INCREDIBLE! The gallery captured a variety of different locations/poses/colors, etc.. We had the photos done to include on our Save the Dates and wedding website and it was almost impossible to choose the best ones. I was worried that they would look cheesy or staged but that was not the case at all. The photos are natural and he was able to make the most out of the park at sunset. I highly recommend Deeba to anyone looking to capture a special moment and we hope to work with him again!

Keith Fierro Benson (Keith): Photography for my wedding was the one thing that I took full responsibility for planning, so I searched quite a bit for the right photographer. Deeba's work stuck out as soon as I saw it. His images are as dynamic as they are intimate and spontaneous. He's got a gifted eye for capturing all the right moments and for accenting the style/size/spirit of the event. A pleasure to work with too, in terms of logistics and professionalism. I highly recommend if you're looking to capture your day in an artful, personal, and candid light, rather than the more stodgy traditional wedding photography style.
Response: Thank you so much for the kind words Keith, it really does mean a lot to me.

Olivia Zhu: Deeba was wonderful to work with. He arrived at the venue early, knew the location very well, and gave us lots of tips on how to set up ahead of time so the photos would turn out best. It was very easy to work out the specific details together, and we were very grateful for his calm demeanor and his expertise. Deeba is clearly a consummate professional. The end result of the photos were also beyond our expectations. Many of the other reviews have noted Deeba's unique and natural style, and I think that goes beyond saying. The photos on his website are a great reflection of what you can expect. We were delighted by the images we received: they don't feel posed or too cheesy. Most importantly, we think they capture us and the spirit of the day very well, and I know we will treasure them forever. (Our families loved them, too.) Deeba made the most of tricky bright, overhead sunlight, and we got a great variety of shots. We are going to happily recommend him to all of our friends in the area!

Katie Foster: We booked Deeba for both our engagement photos and wedding photos. He was amazing from the start. I highly recommend doing engagement photos first because it helped us get to know him better. And the photos are amazing! I have gotten so many compliments on our wedding photos and I love looking at them. It was important to my husband and I to not see each other before the wedding. We met with a few photographers and they told us our timeline and style of photos that we wanted would not work. Deeba listened to us, learned all the family dynamics, and not only accommodated what we wanted (more formal portraits and less cheesy kisses on the forehead), but he fit everything with enough time to spare that we could go to our cocktail hour! At the reception I literally did not know he was there unless guests were dragging me to get a photo taken (Sorry Deeba!). He blended in, and made everyone feel comfortable. If you want a true photo documentary of your big day, chose Deeba. You won't regret it.

itrobertson: Deeba is amazing. Sure, the photos he provided were candid, beautiful, and often stunning, but he also performed above his job description when handling some more unconventional public stops to our limo ride. First, the photos and photography: Deeba was professional, courteous, and arrived exactly when he was supposed to. And throughout the course of the event didn't seem to be anywhere. Absent. Gone. But then we got the photos back. He had melted into the fixtures and, it turns out, was omnipresent. He caught a lot of moments of intimacy and tenderness that we might not have seen otherwise. His product was exactly what we wanted. Second, he went above and beyond. When we left our venue in our limo, we had a narrow window before our costs would jump (based off of additional hours of time): about one hour to capture photos in front of the White House and the Lincoln Memorial and get to the hotel. We hopped into our limo with Deeba on board. But the driver immediately got lost - he turned away from the direction of the White House and drove for a few minutes in the wrong direction before Deeba clued us in - we were not paying attention, being a bit caught up in, well, everything that had just happened. I told the driver we were heading the wrong direction, at which point Deeba jumped in and assumed the role of navigator, getting us to the White House without further problems. After we finished at the White House, we needed to get to the Lincoln Memorial... But the limo driver was missing. He had parked many blocks away (and had no clue how to get back to us). After we had walked about halfway to the limo, my wife's feet could not go further - high heels and the potent combination of adrenaline and total exhaustion could get us no further. Deeba, however, had wisely taken the driver's phone number, called him, and ran off to find him. Next thing we know, the limo pulls up with Deeba already in the back. He was a champion. And the photos... The photos were fantastic, full stop. We have so many excellent memories of the day, and they have now been complemented by an amazing series of photos. Thank you, Deeba. You were awesome.

Hailey Huget: We couldn't be happier with our decision to hire Deeba to shoot our wedding photos! My partner and I usually look extremely awkward/uncomfortable in photos, so we were worried about how our wedding pictures would come out. But it's a testament to Deeba's talent that all of the photos came out beautifully! We were totally blown away by the photos, especially with his candid shots that perfectly captured the day. Deeba was also a very chill and calming presence on the day of the wedding--he's just a pleasure to be around and very easy to work with. Can't recommend him highly enough!

Nicola Hil: Deeba did a wonderful job taking our wedding photos- we had a small civil ceremony and he perfectly captured the intimacy and joy of the day as well as taking beautiful portrait shots. We've received a ton of compliments on the beautiful photos. He is extremely professional and easy to work with and was able to send us the finished photos in just a few days. We also appreciated that he made all the photos available online for quick viewing, sharing, and downloading. I thoroughly recommend Deeba!

Damon Bowe Photography: what do users think?


Lisa L: WOW! Just WOW! Had to schedule a graduation photo shoot from Texas for my daughter in DC. Not only did Damon make every step so easy but after talking with him on the phone and getting to know him a bit I was even more excited to work with him. He is exceptional...Literally, no other way to describe him. His work style, sense of humor, creativity, patience, you name it are all incredible. The pics we received were outstanding too! Keep in mind that we had no easy task for him... juggling a blended family, a morning when bad weather threatened and a senior pup, he juggled it all effortlessly and made for one of the best and most fun photo sessions I have ever been a part of. I had initially chosen Damon based on the ratings on here and boy they did not let me down. If you are looking for someone with imagination, great communication and a fantastic eye for capturing a special moment in your life book Damon now!!! You will NOT regret it! I only regret that he is so far away from us in Texas..... :)

Ashlei Watson: It was great working with Damon! I knew he was the photographer I wanted to work with for my organization when I submitted a quote, and he in return called me and we talked for about 20 minutes about great advocacy looking locations in DC! He then sent over a map with details on possible photo shoot locations, gave suggestions on transportation, etc. He promised he would deliver on the product that I wanted for our organization and he did not fail!! He was patient with us, treated our children nice, and captured a lifetime of memories for our families and organization. You won't go wrong working with Damon!!
Response: Wow, thank you so much! Our original shooting plan was pretty good, but I'm so happy the Capitol Fencing happened to be removed just before your photoshoot because it allowed us a bit more leeway. Thanks again and please let me know if you ever need more photo help! :)

Iris Hinh: My partner and I were looking for a photographer in Washington, D.C. to capture our graduation photos. I initially found Damon's website on Google and loved the variety of photographs that have been shared on the platform. I contacted Damon via email and phone call to ask questions, and he was very responsive and friendly. It rained the evening before the photoshoot, and the cherry blossoms weren't as lively as we had hoped. Damon contacted us to share his thoughts on the best locations near the mall, including proposing the Smithsonian garden. Damon was patient and kept the whole shoot fun. We really enjoyed the whole experience. From the onset, the contract, details, and follow-up were straight forward very professional. This was our first time taking photos with a photographer, and we would highly recommend him for any and all photography needs!

Brittany Kademian: I'm so glad we booked a cherry blossoms mini session with Damon! He's super down to earth, is great with young kids since he has some of his own, and even gave us a full hour taking great photos instead of the 20 minutes we expected. There were so many good photos that I had a hard time choosing which pictures to keep, and just ended up buying them all. Damon was so easy to work with, and I hope that he will continue mini photo sessions of our family around DC a couple times a year!
Response: Thanks so much! Sometimes it takes longer to work with kids, I try to be generous with my time if I can, glad it worked out and we got some wonderful photographs!

Margie Dwight: Damon Bowe is an incredibly talented photographer! I arrived for my headshot session and he was friendly, accommodating and explained the whole process to me as this was my first headshot experience. Although admittedly self conscious, Damon talked me through as he was taking photographs. We looked at photos together and decided whether to take more or whether we had winners. He was encouraging and enthusiastic. He captured my image and most of all, captured my essence. I felt really good after the session and felt confident that the photo we decided upon was the best to present to the world. I cannot recommend Damon highly enough. I will definitely call upon his talents in the future. He also couldn’t have been nicer! You are in very capable, experienced and gifted hands with Damon!
Response: Thanks Margie! It was so fun meeting you and doing headshots. Looking forward to a branding session in the future!

Lauren Vorisek: Although I was initially a bit skeptical about getting professional headshots taken as I embarked on a career change, I quickly realized how valuable a good photographer is. Damon was not only friendly and professional, but he has great advice about angles and how to pose. He was able to help me pull off that illusive mix of appearing confident without seeming cocky, and serious yet approachable. Damon has a great eye for detail and he has the patience to help steer you to the perfect look. I couldn’t be happier with the results. The hardest part was picking my favorite look.

Jilane Rodgers Petrie: We recently had a fantastic experience with Damon for our family's holiday card mini-session! Our toddler is a joyous little human, but for some reason gets very camera shy. Damon expertly captured our little guy in peak happiness, and mom and dad (and even dog!) somehow all looked great too. Damon was easy to book, gave clear communications and was super efficient during the shoot. We got a lot of amazing images at an incredibly reasonable rate. Our family will be repeat customers, that's for sure! Thank you, Damon!
Response: Thank you so much, Jilane. It was a pleasure to work/play with you guys, cannot wait to do it again!

Heather Lorenzo: This was our first time taking photos as a family of four and we loved working with Damon! He was very responsive ahead of time, giving us tips about what to bring and where to be and when. During the shoot, he knew just where to take us and gave us quick and simple directions to help get natural looking shots with a beautiful background. He's also quick on his feet -- cold rain started coming down during our shoot and yet Damon was able to get some snaps of the kids smiling under the shield of some trees that we'll cherish for a lifetime. For anyone looking for a photographer on the Hill or in the DC area, we highly recommend him.

Jeff Le: Damon has such attention to detail and a passion to capture the best in you. I found the experience so positive. Unlike other photography experiences, he helped me feel at ease, explained what we were trying to achieve, and did it with both grace and humor. That's hard to come by in DC and I loved my photos. I know you will too.
Response: Thanks so much, Jeff! Always great to see you!

Shermineh Jones: My family had a terrific experience with Damon and are absolutely thrilled with the photographs from our fall photo session. I was nervous about picking the right photographer because I have toddler twins - one who is shy around new people and another who'd rather play tag than sit for a photo (not to mention a camera shy dad). Based on great word of mouth from the other mothers in my neighborhood, I chose Damon and I am so glad I did. He made my kids totally comfortable and he knew exactly where to get the best shots around the Capitol so everyone was engaged and had fun. We spent less than half an hour together and I got lots of terrific photographs to choose from (many more than I expected). I highly recommend Damon and plan on having him take our family photos again next year.

Judah Avenue Photography: what do users think?


Kiya Racheal: My ENTIRE experience with Judah Avenue has been amazing. Nafa was my maternity photographer and newborn photographer our pictures came out phenomenal I love every single one. She is quick and certainly efficent. I recommend Judah Avenue. I can't wait to bring my family back for more photos in the nearest future. Thank you for everything!

dekayla johnson: It really doesn’t get any better. I have the upmost respect for the company they are amazing. So very professional and organized two of the vest things a company can be in my opinion. They are very respectful as well and made me feel so comfortable. Nafa was my photographer she was so professional and easy going she made everything so perfect help me through my poses and posture just everything, she made me feel so beautiful like I was a model!! The assistants Sarah and there was another one I forgot her name they were so helpful and professional as well. Every penny I paid was worth it. The experience was amazing so fun. They provided literally almost everything from wardrobe, accessories jewelry, props, etc. They are so patient and understanding I had to take a small break from getting overwhelmed and exhausted and they were so understanding and waited till I was ready I was shooting for 2 hours which was great because I was able to get so many pictures. My time at Judah Avenue was perfect and I would recommend anyone to book an appointment with this company. I can go on and on but I will leave it here. Thank you so much for the experience I can’t wait to get my photos!!!

Vivienne The Vibe: Judah Avenue is a great photography company! I am a long-time, repeat client and they have been consistently amazing. Everyone on the team is responsive and professional! I love getting my pictures and life events covered by Judah Avenue!

Antonio Palmer: My Fiancée and I did our engagement shoot about a month ago in Washington D.C and we couldn't be happier with the photographs and the process. We had to reschedule a couple times due to some unforeseen circumstances, but Judah accommodated us each time. Nafa was such a joy to work with and her humor and infectious personality put our nerves at ease during the shoot. I can't thank you enough for the work you've done. Choosing a Black Owned business was very important for us and you did not disappoint! Looking forward to our maternity shoot!☺️

Marcel Warfield: As first time parents, my wife and I definitely over capture all of our son’s moments. We knew for his first birthday, we wanted to use professionals for his cake smash photo session. Thank God we came across Judah Avenue on Instagram. It was an absolutely incredible experience from the very beginning - planning the details with Aneta, handling the finances with Susan, the kindness of Aaliyah, Maria and Suzan. Up until we met with Nafa (the best photographer in Washington, DC, Maryland and Virginia) on the day of the shoot. Everything was just wonderful. There are no words to express our gratitude towards each of you. Thanks for the incredible memories & AMAZING photos!!! We’re already looking for reasons to come back to the studio for another photoshoot!

P. J. LORICK: I am thrilled to say that Nafa and the team at Judah Photography captured the most perfect moment for my wife and I. Our session was coordinated perfectly and the hand off from the staff to the actual photography session was seamless. I thoroughly enjoyed speaking with Aneta and getting the concept and inspiration down pack, which really helped facilitate a great session. Nafa, we are deeply grateful you are serving people as a maternity photographer, you truly captured a precious moment in time for us! The ENTIRE shoot was a vibe and our photos are absolutely B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L! Many blessing to you and the team!

Elikem Addae: I still cannot get over how beautiful my maternity photos turned out. Judah Avenue exceeded my expectations and made my maternity experience come to life in a way that I know I'll look back on with delight and satisfaction for years to come. Judah Avenue has an amazing team of professionals that make you feel at home right from the instance of first contact to final delivery. They're responsive, they give you ideas, and make you super excited about your event. I know I'll be going back to them again and again because you cannot place a value on good memories. So if you're looking for the best maternity photographer in the Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia area, please look no further. Thanks again Judah Avenue!! See you when my babies arrive. We cannot wait to work with you all again.
Response: Thank you for your kind words Ellie :) We are excited to work with you again soon!

Hafisat Oridedi: Booked Judah Avenue for my daughter’s 5th birthday photoshoot and our family lifestyle photoshoot. The whole experience was exceptional. Everyone of her team member on set that day was friendly, and professional. My daughter is usually shy but they all made her feel comfortable until she gradually came out of her shell. We totally enjoyed the session, it was all good vibes in a beautiful space with wonderful people. The pictures are so beautiful and we’re delivered in a timely manner. If you live in the DMV are, you should book this lifestyle photographer!

GixxerWolf: STAY AWAY!! June 17th 2022, clearly informed Suzan Taf that I need to book services asap for a Wedding in approx 40 days. 5 days later, I recv'd my first phone call, explained my event needs, she said that she would have to speak with her boss first, however, no problem there is coverage available. June 24th, I send a reminder email, she responds that she is still waiting for a response from her boss. June 28th, I send another reminder email, she responds that photography is available however no video. June 30th - i speak with Suzan, photography is available, I want to lock this in, I verify the deposit amount & forms of pymt accepted, I agree and await receiving the contract. Initially I thought I needed 8hrs of coverage for the wedding, however, after much examination, 6hrs covers the ceremony. Meaning, the cost dropped from $3950 to $3350. July 2nd @8am, Suzan sends an emailing informing me that there is no longer a Photographer available to cover my wedding. @8:16am, stunned by this news, I request contact info for owner/s. @12pm, I posted this review. **Did the reduction in the price of my event play a role.. IDK?** The continued misrepresentations, the lack of urgency for my deadline and what I feel is a sheer lack of care. Perhaps, business has increased and the personal attention touted in other reviews has fallen by the wayside. I was lured by the website and the vision of providing my Bride with a Professional Celebrity style photographer. I am reminded "everything shiny isn't gold", no truer words. Beware... (I have the email chain & cell phone call list, should Google need to verify my complaint)

Erica Jenkins: I absolutely love Judah Avenue Photography! I came to them for my maternity photos and they did an excellent job. They were professional, courteous, knowledgeable and experienced. I really appreciated the excellent selection of props, backdrops, furniture, and clothing that they had to choose from. All of my family and friends were awed by the photos. I wish I had them for my engagement and wedding photos but will definitely use them for family portraits from now on.
Response: Thank you for supporting us Erica!

DC Boudoir Photographer: what do users think?


Sarah Hasenfuss: I literally don’t have the words to describe how amazing and empowering my experience was with Lauren. From scheduling the session, answering all my annoying questions, the actual day of the shoot, delivering my images 2 weeks earlier than expected (!), to hand delivering the most gorgeous printed album everything was just perfect. Lauren is an absolute dream to work with and her work shows how much she cares about women and showcasing their bodies. Book with Lauren now!! It doesn’t matter where you are in your life (I did it as a single 31 year old) it’s an absolute joy to celebrate yourself. You won’t be disappointed!!
Response: Oh, Sarah! This review made my year!! You are so kind and an absolute joy to work with! 🖤

Kelly Harwood: I wish I could give DC Boudoir Photographer 10 stars. Lauren and the hair and makeup team made me feel so comfortable and special during my shoot. Lauren is incredibly professional while being personable - a valuable combination for boudoir photography. I booked the Luxe package and my photos turned out better than I ever could have imagined. I got a bit emotional seeing myself in the gallery and the experience has been so empowering. Lauren communicated beautifully before, during, and after my shoot and turned my gallery around so quickly! I would absolutely book with Lauren again and have been recommending her to all of my friends. If you’re thinking about booking, don’t hesitate!
Response: Hi Kelly! Thank you SO much for this review! I absolutely loved photographing and meeting you!

Katie Krull: Lauren is an absolute wizard!! Her warm and welcoming personality made everything so easy and most importantly, fun! I’ve never felt more confident in myself and would recommend her to anyone who wants to celebrate their body in all of its glory. Thank you, Lauren!!
Response: Thank you for your kind words, Katie! I loved working with you!

Brianne Gutzke: Everything about doing a boudoir shoot with Lauren is a good time! She’s super easy to work with in prep and makes the day of so relaxed. The girls she works with for hair and makeup are a ton of fun and set the right tone for a chill shoot- even if it’s something you’ve never done. The WHOLE time, Lauren guides you through the poses down to facial expressions so you never have to feel like you don’t know what you’re doing. She does such a good job of making you feel good about yourself and then when you get the pictures you get to see yourself exactly as she saw you in that moment and it is beyond perfect. I totally think everyone should do this and if you’re questioning where to go- Lauren is the right choice!
Response: This is such a lovely review to read on a Friday afternoon! Thank you so much, Brianne. Photographing you was the highlight of my month! <3

Daniela Gant: Lauren is freaking amazing ! I had my shoot early this year in January. It was life altering. Lauren does a wonderful job at making you feel comfortable and empowered during the shoot . I have had a lot of body image issues due to trauma. I was hesitant how I would feel during. But she helped me embrace and love myself . I earned a piece of my self back that day.not to mention beautiful sexy and empowering photos of myself . Thank you so much Lauren. I will never be able to repay you for what you helped me see in myself that day.
Response: Oh, Daniela, thank you so much for these words! It was an honor to photograph you 🖤

Renee Arellano: I wish I could give Lauren/DC Boudoir Photographer more than 5 stars! My experience with shooting Boudoir photos with her was unforgettable. Lauren makes you feel the most confident with her encouragement (and with the help of champagne!) and empowering guidance. Not once did I feel silly or awkward. Lauren really sets the tone with sexy music (hello Beyonce) and guides you through the poses that result in such powerful photos. Even before the shoot Lauren was helpful in suggesting outfits and color schemes. She had helped coordinate make-up services so I could feel and look my best. Her warm and welcoming personality really shined through as the shoot went on. What helped the most is that Lauren not only directed the poses, but also demonstrated them on the spot. I was able to see what her vision was and execute it with confidence. This was the first type of private photo shoot I have ever participated in and the feeling of empowerment and confidence was something I won't soon forget! Lauren you are pure magic and thank you so much for all that you did to make that photo shoot so memorable <3
Response: Renee! You are simply THE BEST! Thank you so much for this kind review! XO

Katie Stone: Stop hesitating, and just schedule that shoot with Lauren! I was hovering over that “Book Now” button for WAY too long, so I decided to reach out to Lauren on Instagram to express my interest (and nerves). She immediately put me at ease with just one reply - “You’re going to CRUSH it! And if you have any doubts, I’ll be there!” I am gifting these photos to my fiancé on on wedding day, and I cannot wait for his jaw to hit the floor. But, I truly feel everyone should have a boudoir experience with Lauren. Do it for yourself! <3 Lauren is so incredible and empowering, she makes the entire experience so comfortable. I promise you will see yourself in a completely different light - loving and appreciative of your body - it’s strength, and it’s beauty for what it can do. Thank you again Lauren!!
Response: Thank you so much for these incredibly kind words, Katie! I had an absolute BLAST photographing you!

Katelynne Lowensen: So many good things to say about my photoshoot with Lauren. I really wanted to document my pregnancy in a different way so I decided to book a boudoir shoot for myself. Lauren was so amazing! She is the ultimate hype girl. From the background music she plays to the positive comments she makes during your shoot. You truly feel like a million dollars. She helped with everything in the planning process from giving suggestions on pieces to wear and also hair and makeup. She made me feel like a rockstar and so comfortable as it can be a little intimidating sometimes opening yourself up to being so vulnerable. I will definitely be booking with her again in the future!
Response: You’re the sweetest. Thank you so much Katelynne!

Veronica Baird: Positive: QualityI’m obsessed with my photos by Lauren! I was a little nervous going in but she made me feel so comfortable the entire time and it show in how great my photos turned out. I’ve already recommended her to several friends and look forward to doing another shoot in the future!
Response: Ah! I'm so happy to read this, Veronica! I absolutely LOVED taking your photos. Thank you so much for your kind words!

Olivia Threadgill: Lauren was beyond all expectation. She makes you feel like a dang model and you will leave with your head held high as can be! I’ve always been very self conscious and the thought of being in lingerie in front of a camera scared me! But Lauren really built up my confidence from the moment she stepped through the door. What I appreciate most is her body positive photography, photos are not extremely edited, it is all lighting and posing! This meant the most to me since we live in a world where we are finally realizing that one size does not fit all, our bodies are gorgeous in every shape and form. Her photos made me see myself in a completely different light and I love my body more than ever especially knowing she didn’t edit my body yet I still love what I see in those photos. Throughout the whole process she blasts fun music and helps you with poses while praising you endlessly! I got so comfortable in my lingerie and in front of the camera! The photos turned out AMAZING! And I will most definitely be using her services again in the near future. I highly recommend her, she has an amazing team of hair and makeup as well! They pulled it all together!
Response: This is the loveliest review EVER! Photographing you was a dream! I had an absolute blast and I feel so super lucky to have clients like you!! 🖤

Paige Buscema: Positive: ProfessionalismExcellent photos only come from excellent photographers. Professional, clean, beautiful images that capture your story just as you wish to tell it. Don’t trust your most important photography needs to just anyone. Moshe has never failed to deliver me a high quality, magazine worthy image. Thanks!

Rachael Rhee: Moshe is a true artist. His craftsmanship is evident in everything from his technical skills to how he brings out the absolute best in his subjects. Moshe doesn’t produce stock headshots—he enriches his portraits with his subjects’ personalities. The masterful quality of his work speaks for itself.

Gabriel Esmailian: Had an amazing experience with Moshe! Extremely professional and kind. Very easy to work with and made taking the pictures feel natural. He explained the whole process of getting the pictures taken for residency applications. Would highly recommend

Carolina Petrini: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, ValueWe have just had a wonderful experience with Moshe. He was very responsive to our tight deadlines and worked with us smoothly. Moshe was punctual, patient and very accommodating. The shots are PERFECT. Thank you Moshe for your hard work!

Jennifer Esparza: Moshe was quick and professional. I was shocked with how confident I looked in my photos with his direction. I’m really grateful for his work and although my shoot was free for Veterans Day, I’d highly recommend any paying customers. I’ll definitely return when it’s time to update my headshots again. Thank you, Moshe, for sharing your gift in photography with us veterans!

Marjorie Quant: A good picture is a phenomenal investment. Wow! Moshe made me like my pictures. And that says a lot. I dread taking photos. Absolutely dread it, but every photo came out amazing. The challenge was choosing which photos to keep. I've never struggled with too many good choices. He made me feel so comfortable and the session flew by. I strongly recommend hair and makeup in the studio. The hair/makeup artist stayed with me the whole time and made real time adjustments as Moshe coached me. I'm definitely headed back.

Emilee Schipske: I had a great experience with Moshe! He gave me great direction on smiling and posing. I highly recommend HeadshotDC for graduation and professional photos.

Alicia Khan: I took several headshots I was unhappy with before coming to headshot dc. Needless to say I was nervous about this photo. I told Moshe about my past experience and he asked me specifically what I was looking for and even reviewed my old images to see what I didn't like. He coached me through the session with poses and fixing up posture/hair/face. It took one picture of me and it was the best picture of myself I have ever seen. Its been a year since and I still get compliments about my picture every day whether it be on zoom or through my email address etc. I have referred countless friends and they all have been happy costumers, even trialing the professional makeup etc. which they were very happy with.

Ayann Johnson Holloway: Love, love, love my headshots! Moshe was very pleasant and made me feel comfortable and relaxed. My colleagues love the photos! Would definitely refer anyone who wants a great headshot photo to him!

Tim Coburn Photography: what do users think?


Carla Baechtle: Tim is absolutely fabulous--the entire photo shoot was a delightful experience. He and Carla (his hair and makeup artist) immediately put me at ease and then continued to work their magic. My hair and makeup were done perfectly, and when I stepped in front of the camera Tim's encouragement made me feel confident and comfortable. His expertise behind the camera is evident not just in the final product but the process. I found myself disappointed when the shoot was finished because I was enjoying myself so much. I honestly hope to need photos again soon so I can work with Tim again. :-)

Robert Kwiat: Tim and Carla are incredibly friendly and talented. I recently graduated college and decided to give modeling a shot. I booked a portfolio shoot with Tim, and Carla did my hair and makeup. At this point, I had never been in a professional shoot, and I was out of my comfort zone. They were very friendly, and they helped me pose and get some good shots. The pics at the end of the shoot (after they helped me get the hang of it) were so much better than the ones at the beginning. I had a lot of fun with them. After, I used the pics to start working with an agency near me, and I have my first paid shoot coming up. Such a great team highly recommend.

Alan Moore: Had my second session with Tim today after some amazing health wins over the last 18 months and building a totally new lifestyle and look. Being an existing client, I knew I'd love the final product but Tim took it to a whole new level! He's just an amazing partner to work with and someone whose advice I've come to rely on and trust. His talent for creating amazing shots is only surpassed by his talent for putting his clients at ease and making the shoot a truly fun experience. Whatever look you need, he's your guy! We're really lucky to have such an amazing artist here in the DMV. I'd also be remiss not to shout out his phenomenal assistant Bernadine, who's there every step of the way to get you scheduled and in the studio. Real professionals all around!

Frances D: These headshots are great! I worked with Tim on a photoshoot for our company that included headshots, a team photo and action shots. Prior to the shoot Tim worked with me to understand my goals and what I hoped to achieve with the photos. The day of, he arrived on time and was super organized, plus he made the experience relaxed and fun for everyone involved. The end results are exactly what I wanted.

Joe Salzberg: Was looking for a professional headshot after getting a new job; and after searching from Woodbridge to DC, the only place I found that offered the services I looked for was HeadshotDC. Moshe blocks out 45 minutes for unlimited photos - and you get to review the photos in real time! He also coaches you with your facial expressions and smile to get you looking good. Worth every penny paid for his artistry and impeccable service!

Alex Ramirez: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, ValueI had such an amazing experience at the studio with Tim! He was so communicative and kind throughout the entire session. In the end, I have a fresh set of headshots that I’m incredibly happy with! I will be back, thanks again Tim!

Inna Mikhailova: Working with Tim exceeded all my expectations. In addition to a phenomenal artistic talent, Tim has a broad range of experience. Whatever industry you work in, he has probably photographed people in it. His advice on wardrobe, background, posing and all other details is based on genuine knowledge of what it takes for you to put your best foot forward in your field. Also, I really liked how incredibly efficient he was time wise without making me feel rushed at all. I felt incredibly comfortable and heard throughout the entire shoot. The vibe was “take all the time you need to get a picture you like.” But, Tim being an amazing photographer gave me pictures I LOVED nearly right away. I added the hair and make up service. Although, I’m pretty good at daily makeup, good photo make up and hair takes knowledge I simply don’t have. Carla was fantastic and very detail oriented. Bring pictures of what you like and she takes it from there. Warning: she’s so good you might never want to do your own make up and hair again. Not worrying about sweating my foundation off or my hair going flat/frizzy during the drive there was already 100% worth it. Someone standing by behind the scenes to fix anything I didn’t like the look of in the picture right away was a great bonus. Overall, fantastic experience that produced top notch headshot pictures!

MQ C.: Tim is outstanding to work with and his results speak for themselves! I am extremely happy with my headshots and would recommend to anyone who wants a modern, fresh look for their photos.

Charmain Bogue: Loved the entire experience from the first email to the delivery of my photos. Tim and his team really give 5 star services. Hands down I will not go to anyone else for my professional photos.

Beth Tuckwiller: To put it simply and without exaggeration, Tim is an incredibly talented, world class photographer. He immediately put my teenage daughter at ease in his chic, modern studio and captured her personality and "look" perfectly. He is the whole package: fun, professional, responsive, enthusiastic, and just as good with teens as he is with adults. There were so many beautiful shots, we had trouble picking from the 150+ he sent us!
Response: So amazing working with you. Thank you!! :-)

Marie Elizabeth Photography: what do users think?


Laura Moore: Marie is absolutely amazing! She is kind, creative and easy to work with. She makes the session effortless and brings so much joy to her work. Her style is classic and will remain treasures not only because they are of your loved ones but because they are beautiful pieces of art. You will not be disappointed if you work with her. Highly recommend!
Response: Thanks so much, Laura! I absolutely adore photographing your beautiful family!

Audrey Butler: Marie is the best family photographer out there! She helps you and your kids feel comfortable in front of the camera and she knows how to get your little ones to give a real smile! Marie was very communicative with me about photo turnaround time and with any questions I had during the whole process. From booking to photo delivery, the whole process was so easy and fun. I completely recommend Marie!
Response: Aw, thank you so much, Audrey! It was so much fun to photograph you and your adorable little guy!

Francine Amos Hardy: Marie has a beautiful light and airy style that is both dreamy and romantic. She is fantastic at picking locations and finding the perfect lighting for every shot. She is also very good at posing clients and helping them to be relaxed and very natural during sessions. Furthermore, she is excellent at taking a variety of shots to make sure there are classic shots as well as creative framing that is tasteful and artistic. We receive nothing but compliments on the photos she takes of our family!
Response: You know I always love photographing you, Billy, and the girls! Thanks for the kind words, Francine!

Jules Hall: Marie took newborn photos for our first baby. Being our first, we knew how important it was to find the right photographer to capture those precious moments. She had such an eye for finding the best lighting in our home and she was mindful that we wanted family photos but also photos of our baby’s features - hair, feet, hands! Marie took care to notice the finest of details of how to pose my husband, baby, three dogs, and me which was no small feat! Marie’s style is ethereal, romantic, and timeless - we will cherish our photos for generations.
Response: Julia, you are too kind! It was an honor to photograph this special season for you. Sending love your way!

Hilary Beall: I can’t explain what these photographs mean to me, especially with the understanding that my little girl may be my only baby. I am overcome with emotion looking at these beautiful images. I don’t typically do my hair and I don’t often feel particularly beautiful, but Marie’s photography made my daughter and I look serene, otherworldly, and stunningly gorgeous. These photos will be cherished for the rest of our lives. She is so incredibly talented! I look forward to her continued success and I’m so very thankful for her gift in capturing these fleeting moments.
Response: It was my honor to document this special time for you, Hilary. Thank you so much for your kind words!

Ian Hostetler: Marie did a perfect job capturing my now fiancés and my engagement. Upon inquiring, she was quick to respond, knew exactly what I was looking for and provided expert advice on how to make the moment special. On the day of, she told me where to stand so it’d create the perfect photos and after, provided guidance on how to pose for awesome pictures. In addition, Marie snuck ahead to a surprise party with 70+ people. She spent extra time to take all the family photos that were requested. 10/10 would recommend.
Response: Hi Ian! It looks like you have the wrong Marie Elizabeth Photography (believe it or not, there are two of us! 😆). You left such kind words, and I would hate for your Marie to not see these. I encourage you to copy this review, delete it, then paste it onto your photographer’s Google page. Congrats on your engagement!!

Bernadette Antoon: Wow! Words cannot describe the superb experience I had with Marie. She is talented, professional, and patient! We worked with Marie to have a family lifestyle photo session. This included myself, my husband, our almost two year old son, and my sister who was visiting town. Our son does not love getting his photo taken, but somehow Marie was able to get him to smile and capture precious moments of us together. She recognized that sometimes two year olds have their own agenda and was able to strategically capture wonderful photos around that! Additionally, she was able to make all of us, feel comfortable, relaxed, and care free during the photoshoot, which shined through when we looked at the final products. If you are looking for a professional, talented, and kind photographer, I highly recommend Marie! She will make you and your family feel like a million bucks and take beautiful photos that will last a lifetime. I cant wait to work with her again.
Response: Wow, what kind words, Bernadette! Your family was so lovely to photograph, and I love how your photos turned out. Thank you for such a wonderful experience.

Alexis Cunningham: Marie was such a joy to work with. She is incredibly thoughtful and warm and put our family at ease which enabled her to capture beautiful candid pictures that we will cherish for years to come. She was fantastic with our two girls (and my introverted husband)! Marie is very professional, responsive and genuine and I’d recommend her to any of our family or friends!
Response: Alexis, thank you for your kind words! I had so much fun at your session and just love the images of your girls. Wish you all the best!

Emily Goff: Marie was so wonderful during our newborn shoot. She was kind and patient with our family and made us feel so comfortable. We treasure our newborn photos and love to look back at them to see how our son has changed and remember those first couple of weeks at home as a family. We love how classic the photos turned out and have framed and displayed them in our home so we can enjoy seeing them every day. We look forward to using Marie again in the future!
Response: Emily, I loved photographing you and your beautiful family. Time is a thief, and I am so glad you have these images to cherish how adorable your little one is!

Emily Kate McDonald: I can't say enough about how much we love working with Marie and the beautiful photos she's given us. We've done two different shoots with her now--one outdoor with younger babies and one indoor to celebrate our twins' first birthday. Both times she made the process easy and fun. She's wonderful with little ones and made my husband and I feel so comfortable (a big order for people who don't love having their picture taken). And the photos we've received are so gorgeous. We will always treasure them and are already thinking about the next big occasion we'll book with Marie.
Response: Emily, thank you for such sweet words! I absolutely adored photographing your little ones on both occasions. I had so much fun and cannot get enough of their cuteness!

DC Corporate Headshots: what do users think?


Thane Foster: Delane is great! Extremely informative, enthusiastic & passationate about his work. Just talking to him you’ll experience that he’s confident in his work and is highly experienced. The quality of his work is not only highly detailed but very modern & unique. Even if your just shopping around for the right photographer; I would highly recommend contacting them for a quote.

Diego Sanchez Gallardo: I rarely write product or business reviews, but my experience with Delane at Corporate Headshots was superb. He understood my need and explained the importance of having range with the final products. Not only did he make sure I looked great in the photos, the turnaround was much quicker than expected. I highly recommend DC Corporate Headshots if you are in need of a professional headshot.
Response: Diego...I'm glad we had the chance to work together! Your kind words are greatly appreciated!!!

Debbie Chamberlin: Delane made this a memorable experience - personable, interesting and great attention to detail. He took time to understand the nature of my profession so that the photograph would represent me correctly and 'say' the right thing. Thank you!! I will be back in the future and would highly recommend him.

Nicholas Kelly: I went in and had DeLane and Louis working with me and it was the best experience. My corporate headshot was woefully out of date. The team at Rouse Photography/DC Corporate Headshots were professional, made me feel so comfortable. The ease and comfort they demonstrated made me feel that more comfortable and relaxed with the process. The results are clear in the final product. I would gladly and with my whole heart recommend Rouse Photography/DC Corporate Headshots. Every penny I paid was worth the experience and final product. The quality of workmanship is second to none.

Delane is patient and has the ability to provide you with the photos and experience that will make you want to return and most importantly tell all of your friends and coworkers. In fact, I always get asked where did I go to get my headshot done when people see it in on LinkedIn or in other professional settings. Delane will tailor your experience to your needs.

D'Corzo Photography: what do users think?


Ashlee Whitmire: Working with Carol was one of the best decisions I’ve made. She photographed my husband’s Marine Corps promotion at the reflecting pool and the entire process was more than I could have hoped for. All of her emails were professional, transparent, and made me excited to work with her. Everyone that attended/participated in the ceremony talked about how great she was and that having her was a great addition. She processed the photos quickly and they were each stunning. I would work with her again without any hesitation. She is worth it!

Tiffany Kesslar: Carol is simply the best. A friend posted the most beautiful family photos and I inquired about their photographer - and they raved about Carol. She did not disappoint. We have used Carol every year since then and she is just amazing. Not only does she have a wonderful and patient personality but her photos are just incredible. She knows how to deal well with children and creates both wonderfully posed and spontaneous pictures. The best part is that she has a pretty quick turnaround and she shares so many beautiful photos that you get to pick from to purchase (so many others choose the ones they want you to have which I don't like). She also always suggests new locations to vary up the pictures each year which is nice. I plan to be a client of hers for as long as she will have us!

Josh Tarrant: Carol was perfect! I reached out a few months prior to a ceremony in the National Archives Museum of DC. It’s a low-light room where historical documents are displayed and no personal photography is allowed for their protection (no flash). Carol was easy to work with, engaging with my guests, and I am thrilled with the end result. Her price was fair, and although I can buy prints through her site, she did not require me to. She was very responsive, friendly and captured beautiful images of a treasured memory I can hold on to forever. Highly recommend!

Holly Jackson: Carol photographed my husband's Army promotion at the National Archives. She did an AMAZING job! The Archives don't allow flash photography for obvious reasons, so it takes true talent to capture images in such a dark room. Carol was great to work with! Clear, professional communication before and after. Her ability to capture both our personalities and special, more serious moments was incredible! Highly recommend!

noly Franklin: Carol was so amazing. My 35th birthday shoot was the best shoot I’ve ever had done professionally. She captured the perfect angles, the perfect moments and gave us so much direction. I loved every minute of our shoot. It was around 30 degrees and she kept the appointment timely and perfect. I love working with Carol and will never use another photographer! Thank you Carol for sharing your passion with me!

Alex Brennan: Carol was great to work with. She was a good communicator and even sent outfit inspiration boards that were helpful and above and beyond. She is a great family photographer and we will treasure the pictures from our session forever. She was also great with my 4-year-old son! Highly recommend and would happily book with her again.

LaTrece Porche: We are a family of 6 and have shot with Carol numerous times. From family pics to maternity pics to newborn pics at the hospital, Carol goes above an beyond to make sure we all look great! She is patient and knows how to get the kids involved no matter what it takes. She is so creative and she makes us feel like models. We love her work! She is the best hands down!

Deyana Cox: My husband and I have had the privilege of working with D'Corzo photography 3 times. We absolutely love the quality of Carol's photos as well as her ability to make us feel comfortable for the camera. I've referred her to several friends and her pictures have beat all of their expectations! Carol will probably be my family photographer forever!

Chris Tolliver: We used Carol for the first time in October 2021 to capture a special family event. The photographs she took were beautiful and will be treasured family keepsakes. Carol was easy to work with and was in constant communication before and after the event. She was on time for the event, and delivered the photographs within the promised timeframe. Highly recommend.

Melissa Bauserman: I HIGHLY recommend Carol. She photographed my husband's military promotion at the Lincoln Memorial and I couldn't have been more pleased! I fell in love with her photography on instagram and she made sure that she captured our family in the same beautiful way. She is so easy to work with, reasonably priced and delivered gorgeous images quickly. All around, it was a wonderful experience!

Potok's World Photography: what do users think?


Jenny Pozinsky: Let me begin by saying that we could not have made a better decision than to have Potok’s World Photography capture our wedding day. Pete and Anji checked off every single box for us… quality of work, responsiveness, likeability, etc. We fell in love with their style as soon as we laid eyes on their online portfolio. Their quality of work was apparent, so we were already more than interested… and this is before we got to know them. Pete and Anji’s work is nothing short of remarkable, but we were so happy to find out that as good of photographers that they are, they are even better people! We got to know Pete and Anji through a number of zoom meetings before the wedding and they just made us SO comfortable. They are easy to talk to, and their banter with one another is charming. They are such a fun and loving couple, and they work very well together. They acted as an extension of our wedding party, and were so effortless in their ability to capture all our special moments, we didn’t even know they were there! Total pros. We were blown away when we received our album, and our families went nuts about every single picture. What we love most about our photos is that Pete and Anji capture FEELINGS. Sure, there were plenty of “posed” photos (couples, family pictures, etc.) but their action shots are pure gold. Check out their website, you will see for yourself. To sum it all up, we went out looking for a photographer, and we are so proud to say that we came back with BEAUTIFUL photos, and a pair of lifelong friends.
Response: Thank you, Jenny and Mike! You guys were awesome and we loved being part of your wedding! This one is extra special to us because we not only got to meet amazing clients, but became friends with such wonderful people!!!

G Bruner: It was such a wonderful experience to work with Anji and Pete for our wedding photography. We booked them pre-pandemic, and for well over a year, Anji and Pete would check in, were flexible with the changes we had to make, and thoughtful in every aspect of our wedding. In a time that could have been much more stressful, Anji and Pete were a bright spot. They were easy to work with, accommodating, and also, the photos...AMAZING. Even beyond the wedding, they reached out, send very special and cherished photos to our parents, and treat you like you are important to them. You will not be disappointed if you chose Potok for your wedding, or for any other milestone you want to document. I cannot wait to work with them again in the future for other events in our lives. Thank you Anji and Pete!!!
Response: Thank you so much, Guin and Richard, for your kind words! It was an absolute pleasure for us to have the privilege to photograph your wedding celebrations! You were a wonderful couple to work with, and we're so grateful to have had the opportunity to get to know you better!

John Hawkins: My wife and I are so glad we Anji and Pete to shoot our engagement and wedding photos and highly recommend them. Anji and Pete were absolute professionals during the whole process and had great communication. We preferred to have photographers who were more in the background to capture our special moments instead of actively posing us and we were very happy that this aligned with Anji and Pete’s style. Whenever we had specific questions, they would have blog posts or answers right away to make the whole process go smoothly. Our families and us absolutely loved all of the photos we received from our engagement shoot and wedding. Fingers crossed that we never need wedding photographers again but if we did we would definitely choose Anji and Pete.
Response: Thank you so much John! It was such an honor to be part of your wedding!

F LH: We hired Potok's World Photography for our small outdoor wedding and an engagement shoot - we reached out to them because we loved the vibrancy and creativity of the photos in their portfolio. Anji and Pete were a great team - a warm, discreet and professional duo during the wedding events, and also timely and responsive about pre-wedding details and follow-up correspondence. The photographs from the wedding and engagement shoot were beautiful and alive and really captured the spirit of this special moment in our lives.
Response: Thank you Flora and Nate for choosing us to document your special moments for you! We loved being part of your wedding and wish you all the best!

Christopher Beatty: Positives: Where to start… First off Anji and Pete are incredible people and their presence at our wedding was not just one of professional photographers but of a team that made our day genuinely better. From the first conversation we had while looking for vendors to the last discussion before the wedding, we loved working with them. They had great questions to gauge what we were looking for and to encourage us to think about options and logistics we had not considered. They were punctual, efficient, prepared, and seemed virtually unflappable. Having them in charge of one of (if not the most important, honestly) jobs at our wedding was an excellent decision. Thank you to Potok’s World Photography for capturing our day perfectly. -Erin and CJ
Response: Thank you so much for your kind words Erin and CJ! It was such an honor to be part of your beautiful wedding day!

Emily Benson: Anji and Pete were awesome for our two-day wedding with totally different vibes each day. Perhaps the best part about this experience is that you couldn't tell the photographers were there. That made the bridesmaids and especially my mom way more relaxed and comfortable. We were a bit of an unusual crowd, and they did such an amazing job! They were fun, professional, timely, and I would absolutely recommend them for your wedding or other special occasion :)!
Response: Thank you for your kind words and for choosing us to document your wedding moments! It was such an honor! We loved being part of your beautiful wedding celebrations and meeting your wonderful families and friends!

Mark Baker: My wife and I met Pete & Anji through a mutual friend after them capturing their special day. After our initial consultation we were immediately impressed with their presentation, knowledge, and organization of their information. We began planning a destination wedding and wanted to have them as part of our special day. Through the planning process they were easily accessible and and had great communication leading up to our special day. On our wedding day they snapped away and we barely noticed they were there. They were able to capture all of the photos we wanted without being asked and even enjoyed the reception with us as we danced the night away! They were very professional, prompt, and provided us with comfort through the entire process. When it came to receiving the finished product, we were impressed with turnaround time as we had heard horror stories about photographers how long edits could take. We received a sneak peak of the photos very fast and then the full product shortly after! The outcome was AMAZING! I think they may have won an award from our wedding photos :-) I would recommend Potok’s World Photography for capturing your special moments!
Response: Thank you Shannon and Mark! Your wedding was beautiful and you and your families made us feel more like guests than vendors and we really appreciate it!

Nicholas Martino: We had a great experience with Anji and Pete from Potok’s World Photography for our wedding in October 2019. Anji and Pete were always very responsive and took the time to get to know us and what we were looking for. We also did our engagement photos with them and loved that they wanted us to feel comfortable and have the photos reflect us as a couple. Before our wedding we consulted with them on the types of photos we wanted; they took a perfect mix of candid photos of us enjoying our time with guests and staged portraits with family and our bridal party. We were blown away with the little moments they captured of our wedding, details that we’ll never forget! When it was time to create our wedding album they helpfully provided a template and worked with us until it was exactly what we wanted. We would recommend Potok’s World Photography to any couple!
Response: Thank you so much Courtney and Nick! We loved being part of your special day and help preserve your memories!!! Every time we are reminded of those fun moments in your bridal suite it brings a smile to our faces!

Matthew Hughey: Anji and Pete were wonderful, kind, flexible and affordable for our photos. They were very attentive to our needs and gave us detailed explanations for their skill set and approach to photography. We highly recommend!!!
Response: Thank you Matthew and Menaka for choosing us as your wedding photographers! Being part of your wedding was such a fun experience!

Raegan Bartlo: I hired Anji & Pete for our engagement photos and wedding day. They are an incredible team. They capture the special moments perfectly and know what angles and shots are best. Being a bride on a budget paying for my wedding myself, they gave me great advice and worked within the numbers. Everything happens so fast on your wedding day, you will be grateful to have them capture the moments you were in and even the ones you didn't see or didn't remember. Our day was spectacular and the photos are helping us relive our day for years to come. Thank you, Anji & Pete!
Response: You are so welcome! It was such an honor to photograph your engagement and wedding! Thank you for trusting us with your special moments!

Natasha Lamalle Photography: what do users think?


Lisa Kim: Long story short, trusting Natasha as our engagement and wedding photographer was the best decision my husband and I made. Natasha's photography style is natural yet meticulous. Her photos look and feel timeless. Each time we look at our engagement/wedding photos, we're able to remember so clearly our story and emotions. Natasha was also a collaborative photographer every step of the way. We had an initial vision in mind, and she made it even better with her expert suggestions and creative ideas. Our journey with Natasha was a long one thanks to COVID-19. We postponed our wedding once, but Natasha made sure we didn't feel lost or overwhelmed. She's not only a skilled photographer but a genuinely wonderful person! We are so grateful to have worked with Natasha!
Response: Thank you so much Lisa! I loved working with the two of you and really felt I was part of the family. Our ideas combined created some beautiful and unique images. Congratulations again on your wedding!

Nicole Corea: Photography was probably the element of the wedding that we spent the most time thinking about. We really wanted a photographer who could shoot documentary-style without staging too many shots. We went back and forth on a few options, but Natasha's artistic eye and ability to capture special moments were unparalleled. As we got to know her, we also learned that she was always willing to listen to our feedback, share her ideas, and, perhaps most importantly, keep us present on a day full of distractions. Our family and friends were in awe of her ability to be everywhere and nowhere all at once. We love our wedding photos and would highly recommend Natasha to future clients.
Response: Thank you so much Nicole. I love how we collaborated for your wedding day and I’m so glad you had a wonderful experience. Congratulations again!

Jennifer Cole: We chose Natasha to be our photographer at our small Covid wedding this fall because we were attracted to her photojournalistic style. She is a brilliant photographer. She spent time getting to know us beforehand and making sure she understood what we wanted. We enjoyed the time we spent with her. She captured personal moments naturally and effortlessly, with not a single cheesy, posed picture among them. We have these beautiful memories of our wedding day captured forever, and it is worth every penny. I cannot recommend Natasha's photography more highly for a special occasion.
Response: Thank you so much Jennifer, this is so sweet! I enjoyed our time together as well!

Cassie Stiefel: We do not have enough kind words to say about Natasha and the photos she captured of our engagement. As you can see, they are AMAZING! Natasha helped my fiancé plan a surprise engagement in front of the Capitol at sundown and we couldn't be happier with the final product. She was extremely easy to work with and even sent us a few preview photos the night of so we could share with family and friends. We are forever thankful we have such beautiful photos to remember one of the most special nights of our lives.
Response: Awww thank you so much Cassie! It was my pleasure to plot with your now fiancé :-)

Blaise Hill: Natasha helped me surprise my now-fiancé with a proposal. Natasha is everything you're looking for in a photographer: she is fun, easy to work with, and accommodating; she is an excellent photographer with impeccable attention to detail; and she has a passion for making you and your moment feel like the most important thing in the world. I cannot recommend her services enough.
Response: Thank you so much for your lovely words Blaise! I loved planning the proposal with you, and I’m glad we nailed it! Congratulations again!

Anita Paredes: We booked Natasha for our engagement photos, and also to celebrate crossing the 10 year mark of being a couple! Working with Natasha was such a dream. Felt so supported and informed throughout the whole process. Also really am in love with her photography style (documentary/photojournalist), it is just so gorgeous!! I really wanted those intimate moments to be captured, and she nails it. Our session was fantastic, it was filled with laughs and was such a fun time. We felt comfortable and at ease. Received the photos very promptly after our session, and was delighted with all of them. Natasha crafts a beautiful story of the day with each of the moments captured. Am forever thankful for such a wonderful engagement session, truly an amazing and memorable experience!
Response: Thank you so much Anita! I really enjoyed our time together as well!! Your engagement session in Rockville was a great way to work on my creativity and I'm so proud of the work I did with you. Wishing you all the best!

Sergio Blanco: Natasha was amazing and a true visionary. She helped my wife and I see our wedding in a whole new light!Natasha is outgoing, positive and best of all patient. Helping us navigate through our hectic wedding day, while making it fun and exciting.
Response: Thank you so much Sergio, it was a true pleasure to be by your side that day!

Elizebeth Barnes: Positive: Professionalism, ResponsivenessNatasha was absolutely wonderful to work with. She is the perfect photographer for a shoot where you want to forget about the camera, and focus on the person you are with. We loved our beautiful photos and would highly recommend her for engagement sessions (or weddings!)
Response: Thank you so much to you both! It was my pleasure!

Michela Gaviorno: We used Natasha Lamalle Photography for our wedding and engagement photos and I can honestly say it was the BEST experience. For us, capturing our wedding the way we wanted was the most important aspect of wedding planning. After talking with so many photographers, the second we sat down with Natasha, we knew she was the one for us! She made us so comfortable during the engagement session and wedding. Also, she captures the most amazing candid photos I've ever seen. She captured shots that truly amazed me, AND you would never know she was there! She should double as a ninja because she was able to capture incredible moments without anyone realizing there was even a camera in the room. Again, I can't say enough positive things about her! I just can't wait for our next shoot with her!
Response: Thank you so much Michela! It was a true collaboration and I loved every moment of your wedding. Congratulation again and I hope our paths will cross again in the near future. Cheers!

Amanda Boelke: Natasha was more than we could ever have hoped or asked for. Her style is photojournalistic rather than posed, and it made for some dramatic and timeless photos of our wedding day. From those photos, I know that she was in the middle of the action at all times, but we never noticed. She was so amazing it was a no-brainer to ask her to do some maternity photos a year later!! Her work, for any occasion, is second to none and I love the way she captures the emotion and beauty of the people and space. She has not only become our family photographer but a friend who has been present to celebrate and document some of our most important life milestones. She is amazing to work with, and we give her our highest recommendation!
Response: Thank you so much, you’re too kind!

Imagery by Erin: what do users think?


Caroline Leverett: I hired Erin for my wedding photographer and she did such an amazing job! The pictures came out fabulous! She had the exact look I was going for and the pictures truly looked like they were suppose to be on the cover of a bridal magazine! She also did a great job with direction and getting everyone who was getting their picture taken to take her direction. I would definitely recommend her!

Elizabeth Crunk: My fiance and I had the pleasure of working with Erin for our engagement photos and had a wonderful experience all around. In fact, he and I both agreed that our engagement session with Erin was one of our favorite things we did during wedding planning! Erin is very professional, responsive, and talented -- our engagement photos were stunning. I especially appreciate how she helped us pose for photos and created a fun environment for our photo session. As an added bonus, she loves working with dogs -- even our energetic Boston Terrier! We highly recommend Erin and would work with her again in a heartbeat.

Tom V.: Hiring a photographer for our wedding was a decision that we took incredibly seriously. We read tons of reviews, but without working with someone or getting recommendations from friends, how can you really know? Erin worked with us to make sure we were comfortable, and let us do our engagement shoot before signing a wedding contract. She’s incredibly professional, and we were so happy with the photos. We got her on contract after receiving our engagement photos, and we’re so glad we did. Working with her directly meant she had flexibility to work with us on all the details. She knew going into the wedding exactly what we wanted, and delivered. She made sure we stood up straight, that we were where we needed to be at all times, and the pictures came out better than we could have hoped. She worked quietly in the background all night, pulled us aside when needed, and was just constantly professional. We’ve received a number of unprompted compliments from family members on Erin. Not just on the pictures, but on the way she worked during the wedding itself. While we’re still waiting on the final set of pictures, I would definitely recommend Erin.

Tamara Ellis: I can't say enough about Erin- although her work speaks for itself! She was not my original wedding photographer- I hired her after the wedding to do some bridal portraits, as I was disappointed in the job my wedding-day photographer did. She took the time to listen to what I wanted and was able to give me beautiful portraits, exactly what I wanted. She is easy and fun to work with and completely prepared and knowledgeable about how to bring out the best in you for your pictures. If you want spectacular pictures, work with Erin!

Stephanie Halsne: We hired Erin for our engagement photo session right DC opened back up after COVID. She was able to schedule us quickly despite dealing with a ton of reschedules. The day of the shoot she was super accommodating and patient working with us as we brought along our two dogs. She even brought a squeaky toy to hold their attention! The price was super reasonable, and Erin was able to get our photos back to us 9 days before we expected. Would recommend!

Chelsea S: Erin was great! We used her for our engagement photos first, and then signed on for our wedding photos. She was incredibly responsive and easy to work with. We were very unaccustomed to being in front of the camera, especially for formal/professional pictures. She gave us excellent directions and made us feel much more at ease. We loved how our engagement photos turned out, but (almost) more importantly, they showed us what poses worked best and what we liked and didn’t like. We met with Erin to discuss all we’d learned during the engagement shoot, and she was really receptive, and excited that the first photo session had served its purpose of being a test run for the wedding. For the big day itself, Erin was amazing! She was, of course, prompt, and prepped and ready to go. She had visited our venue a few days prior and knew exactly where she wanted to photograph us. I (the bride) was running late, so she used this time to snap pics of my accessories, flowers, and dress. But she was also so much fun to chat with, and helped me stay calm! She remembered all the things we mentioned from our engagement session, and gave us lots of posing cues, and reminders to stand up straight and turn this way or that way, to make us look our best and most natural. With so many other things to remember on our big day, it was a huge weight off to have her take care of all that! We don’t have our full gallery of wedding photos yet, but the ‘sneak peek’ she sent out is awesome. It’s a really nice touch that she sends you a quick sample after your photo session, and has enabled us to share some beautiful memories with family and friends. We’re so excited to see the rest!

crystal young: C: My Fiancé had been talking about wanting to get pictures done. We live in separate states, so the planning was extremely last minute. Erin made it work for my schedule and when he was going to be in town. She responded so quickly and provided so much information so that I was able to surprise my fiancé. The photos were amazing and showed her abilities to make us both move so the photos come out perfect! Thank you! K: I would highly recommend Erin. She is a constant professional. She takes her time and really listens to what her customers want. Erin arrived with a game plan when my beautiful fiancée surprised me with engagement session. She took the time to understand what we were looking for and figured out how to capture our special moment. The photos came out amazing!

Shony R: UPDATE 3/24/19: Long story short- we never received our "free prints" for the "positive reviews" we were requested to leave BY Erin, the photographer. After multiple attempts and paying for additional prints, Erin has dropped off the face of the earth, will not respond to any questions regarding what happened, and we still have not received our wedding photos (after providing 2 separate addresses)or a refund. While she did seem a bit impatient during our shoot, I assumed it was because of the humidity and time crunch we were under for the location. Now I believe that it was a part of her nature in that she did not want to put forth max effort to ensure her clients were satisfied with their results. Mostly beautiful photos, but not a professional experience overall. In my opinion, the experience before, during, and after contribute to the review. _______________________________ From beginning (planning a wedding in 2 months) to end, Erin was great! She made herself available to our special day and helped me be at ease with not knowing how this whole thing was supposed to go. She gave my husband and I exactly what we wanted (candid/depth/classic shots). And although she worked alone, based on our photos you would think there were two of her. She withstood the humidity with us, seemed mostly patient with our not so co-ordinated guests and wedding party, and let us know that she was there for us....not just to do a job. I would recommend Erin to anyone looking for an experienced, versatile, and timely photographer for their special day! She truly captures the moments that capture your heart. Thank you so much Erin!! - The Rocketts

Rachel Phoebus: We are very happy not just with how our pictures turned out, but also with the whole experience. Erin will make you feel comfortable and confident. She is able to discern with just a little feedback what types of shots you will prefer (and she welcomes and seeks out this feedback). Her photos are natural yet romantic. As one of our friends described, “they look so fairy tale.” We definitely would consider asking her for other photography services in the future.

Hera Nguyen: I've never been good at taking pictures. But Erin made it so easy to pose for them. She also made it super fun and laid-back so we weren't too nervous for the shoot. She really knows her stuff! The photos came out so beautiful and intimate; exactly the way I wanted!! I asked her to get as many pictures of my nieces and nephews at the wedding, and when I saw the sneak peek, I knew I was in for a treat! She was super patient with us even when we completely forgot to get permits for our photo shoot. It was super dumb, but she was so understanding. Would definitely recommend!
Response: Thank you so much, Hera! You were a lovely bride and it was a pleasure working with the two of you!

Freed Photography: what do users think?


Dusky: The PERFECT Wedding Photographers! Tatiana and Bryan are fabulous. Tatiana took the time to make sure that she surveyed the winery/outdoor venue where my daughter, Brooklyn and her now husband, Levi, were married last summer. It was an evening wedding so the colors of the sky were ever changing; she had all the special equipment for this. The photos are stunning. There are so many perfect ones to choose from! We Are still in awe of the artistic details that Tatiana was able to capture. A year later and we cannot stop smiling! Our family has used Freed Photography twice for Weddings - 2010 (Bryan) and 2018. I recommend them to every bride and groom! Thank you for turning my daughter’s wedding into a tangible moment. Bryan and Tatiana’s talent are unmatched!

Shahrzad Rezvani: We can't say enough about Freed photo! Bryan and Tatiana were fabulous! My husband and I met with Bryan a few weeks before the wedding and loved him! He was honest, to the point and funny. We knew he would be perfect and we were right! On our wedding day, Bryan was with me and Tatiana was with my husband while we were getting ready. My girls and I loved Bryan's calm demeanor and the way he made me feel at ease and not rushed. He was appropriately "bossy" with our family during the family photos. Everyone loved him and Tatiana! They had such an artistic eye and I felt our photos looked beautiful and not cookie cutter. We got the digital copies of our photos while we were on our honeymoon not even 2 weeks after the wedding and loved all of them! Freed is the best in the biz and I would highly recommend using them!

Brooklyn Crouse: Tatiana was my wedding photographer, and she was amazing! She is very hardworking, and my photos turned out gorgeous! It’s been two years since my wedding, and I’m still obsessed with my photos! They capture my husband and I’s love for each other perfectly. I cannot say enough good things! My mom gifted the photos to me, and she loves them too! Worth every penny. 👰🏻🤵🏼

Pamela Churchey: Took my granddaughters spring school pictures. Photos were taken outside. They left her jacket on. Doesn't look like a professional school photo. Looks like an amateur snap shot. We didn't need alot of photos because our family is small but we purchased a package that best suited our needs and added on 1-8x10 for $20.00. Very over priced for a spring photo in which the child was wearing a jacket. But everyone wants their child's school photos so you pay these ridiculous prices.

sunny: Lovely school picture of my kids together. Both smiling and looking at the camera. That's some achievement!
Response: Thanks so much, I am glad you're happy!

Micaylah Loebig: I had such a wonderful experience at Freed Photography. The staff is so lovely as well as the owners Carla and Neil. The photographer who took my senior photos, Bryan, did such an amazing job. I truly felt confident and more beautiful after the photo shoot, he was creative with each shot and made sure I was happy with each set of photos after they were taken. Freed is definitely a great place to get your photos taken at! I highly recommend!

Christine Opdenaker: My daughter had her senior pictures done this year & while yes, the photos are good, I'd need to get a loan to buy them. I'm disgusted at what Freed is charging! What's even worse is they know parents will feel obligated to buy them because they're "Senior Pictures". Well not this parent. I'll take pictures myself, thank you.

Lina Beardall: We have used Freed (more specifically Pablo) many times in the past for family/friend's weddings. So when it was time for our wedding we of course called Freed and booked Pablo. Well a couple days before the wedding we get a call that Pablo is sick and they would replace him with someone else. At this point it was too late to find someone else. The photographer they sent us was TERRIBLE!!! He was rude and acted like he didn't want to be there. He kept referring to my husband's step mom as his mother-which I told him MANY times not to. He didn't want to take the pictures I wanted and rushed everything. All my pictures are awful. I am so angry with Freed that now I urge people not to use them. The owner did nothing to solve the problem after the fact even though I have given them a ton of referrals and my family alone had used them 5 times. I am so disappointed when I see wedding photos from other people. DO NOT USE THEM!!!

Mahshad G: HOT MESS! I received my daughters school photos and they were bent which i'm not upset about b/c things happen. What was disgraceful is i emailed Freed photography and left 2 VM , both with details and no one called me back. I called a week later and someone picked up and spent almost 10 mins trying to find my daughter in their system which was ridiculous to me. I'm giving them a low rating based off bad service, not the actual quality of the photo.

Gillian Thomas: School photos of my 1st grader were fairly awful. Lighting was terrible (whose idea was it to take individual school pictures outside?!) No one bothered to make sure my 6-yr old's hair was smoothed down or that his shirt wasn't a wrinkled mess, etc...typical little things that would take literally 2 seconds to correct and are so very appreciated by the parents who pay for these photos. We do what we can as parents, but by the time the kid has their pic taken, their hair and clothing will def need smoothed out again, and I feel some care could have been taken with that. Also, the poses were unnatural looking and just overall a poor quality photograph. When I had my child do re-takes a couple weeks later, I was told they were not on the site yet even though at that point it had been quite a while since they'd been taken. I was also given no help when I had difficulty getting back into their site. Not a satisfactory experience. I hope my son's school uses someone else next year.

National Portrait Gallery: what do users think?


E Blount: The National Portrait Gallery was a really nice experience. There are themed galleries as well as the presidential gallery. If I remember correctly there are 3 floors to explore. There are elevators for those that can't or don't want to walk. It is completely FREE and no ticket required. If you bring a bag it must be worn on the front of your body so that you don't accidentally damage an exhibit.

ReCreate Artworks: This is the best art gallery in DC in my opinion. It’s beautiful, unique and calming. There’s an atrium in the center that provides a dreamy place to sit and rest. My favorite thing about this gallery, however, is that there’s conservationists you can watch at work. When you walk into this museum it’s like being in a different world. Each space creates such a unique atmosphere and is breathtaking to say the least.

Klau Pao: The Gallery is amazing, you will probably spend 2 hours there. It has very beautiful portraits, one of my favorites was Gilbert Stuart painting of George Washington and everything related to Abraham Lincoln as well as the amazing portrait of the Supreme Court Justices! Wow what a place to put on my memory box! I loved it!

M J: I really enjoyed the National Portrait Gallery which shares buildings with the American Art Museum (they each have a side on both buildings). The Hall of Presidents was excellent. I really enjoyed seeing the 2022 Potrait Contest and enjoyed voting for my favorite Portrait. There is a 50 year Anniversary exhibit for the Watergate Scandal and we almost visited on the actual anniversary so that was cool. There are a lot of different portraits of Americans on display and they are pretty randomly spread out between the rooms. All in all, expect to spend 1 1/2-2 hours at this part of the museum. I will say, some teens and kids who are not the most intellectually driven may find it boring as there are not interactive exhibits.

Ray: I didn't know there is this museum until we walked by on the way to Chinatown for lunch. We visited it after lunch. It's great to see some of the arts that I have seen in books or videos in person. Kids enjoyed it as well as we got into some good discussions on some sculpture pieces.

Ukvayat Hanak: The National Portrait Gallery gets 4/5 for all the exhibit areas that are closed right now. Many renovations going on! So many varied exhibits though. A great place to host a catered event. Check em out!

Kathy W: Museum is really big and has so much to see. We spent a good amount of time at kogot courtyard which happens to have orchids displays. Beautiful and fun place for people of all ages. Parking was somewhat challenging but really worth the trip.

Salsabil Yeasmin: Such a beautiful museum. They have free entrance but I would suggest to make a donation even if it's just a dollar or some change. They have worked hard to keep the museum safe, clean and organized. The artwork represents what America is about and our diversity. I simply loved the experience in there.

beyondTabu: This museum is really nice… but this review isn’t about the museum directly. It’s about the staff/security. We’ve been to several other museums and they all seem to have the same attitude. They yell/scream at you from across the room, to not do something or that you’re breaking their rules (that aren’t clearly posted anywhere). It’s very disrespectful and unprofessional. This mentality seems to be widespread in all the museums recently. It’s like they’ve had no customer service training at all. They have a little power and wield it unabated. It upsets our day really makes us not want to visit the attractions.

Joshua Russell: This is one of our favorite museums in DC by far. You get a wide array of art here on three floors. This is located right in Chinatown across the street from Capital One Arena with two entrances. One thing to note if you are being a bag it has to be worn in front of you at all times. We recently came here and I would say my favorite areas were the special exhibition of the dual artists and their stories. They show one piece of art from the artist and tells the story of their connection. They have a Jackson Pollock called Heading West which was really neat to his art before the drip style. Another favorite was the Hung Liu portraits, the way she did them is nothing I’ve seen before and really showed great expression. I also enjoyed the social Justice exhibition as it covered a wide variety of areas and include very moving stories. I highly recommend coming here and spending a couple hours browsing.

Mel Heflin: I'm so grateful! This is exactly the cake smash I was looking to do! Amanda made everything so easy to get amazing pictures of a very, very hyper 1 year old that just wants to run around the studio. She had a plan and made the process and pictures amazeballs! 10/10 would recommend. I can't be more grateful for these photos.

Kate Shoemaker: We chose Amanda to take our newborn photos after seeing her amazing gallery and good reviews, and she exceeded every expectation we had. Amanda captured truly special and extremely high quality photos of our new baby. The experience in her studio was so fun and stress-free. Amanda absolutely has “the touch” to make both newborns and their parents 100% comfortable. Not to mention the endless selection of props and cute outfits, which she helped us narrow down but allowed us to make our own choices on. We received the final photos on time and will treasure them forever!

Jessie S: Amazing photographer and amazing with toddlers! She took the time to play with our son for a bit before the photo shoot so he wasn't scared or bashful at all and then got some great shots of him!

Carl Elixir Photography: what do users think?


Haein Davis: We booked Carl and his assistant photographer was Chuck. Where do I begin… from our engagement shoot in DC to our wedding day they captured everything so beautifully. My husband and I are in such awe. They are both extremely professional, kind, and make you feel so comfortable! I had trouble with posing and they were very patient and helped me how to pose as well. They are super reliable and keep in constant communication with you too. My friend has already booked with them because she loved our photos as well. Thank you so much for capturing memories to last for a lifetime!

Shao Huan (Samuel) Weng: Carl and his team are very professional and kind. They arrived early and looked around the places where they will take the photos. They will also guide you with the poses and make sure you are looking great! All of our friends and relatives were amazed by my wedding photos. It is totally worth the price as wedding is only once in your life. They record the beautiful memories very well! Thank you Carl and his team! I totally recommend him!

Mengjie Jiang: It was very fun to work with Carl, Charles, and Jeff. They are easy to communicate and very responsive. Before the wedding, we discussed our preferred styles and Carl also helped adjust our timeline. Our wedding day was very windy and gloomy, Charles was very passionate and helped mobilized our emotions. The photos turned out to be much better than we thought. We were happy to work with them all!

Hua Luo: Carl and his assistant Charles are very nice to work with. They make it hard for you to not smile throughout the photo session. Carl keeps taking tons of photos all the time to capture every moment that might yield good pictures. So don't jump into any conclusion when you receive all original photos as they may contain ones with weird facial expression or poses. Just wait patiently. The final pictures are awesome.

Serena Nguyen: If you want beautiful, awesome, colorful, and tear inducing photos for your wedding, then Carl is your guy. We hired him to shoot our engagement shoot and wedding photos and we were beyond honored to have him capture the most magical day of our lives. Carl is professional, easy going, and has an eye for angles and light. During our engagement shoot we laughed the whole time and he gave us photos that not only wowed everyone but also perfectly encapsulated our relationship. On wedding day, Carl and his second shooter Chuck were on time and worked nonstop all day capturing all the moments, big and small. He was able to give us amazing sneak peeks within two days and our wedding album in approximately one month. Even the candids were beautiful and just showed the story of our day. Another plus is that Carl was able to direct our Chinese guests in Mandarin, which was super helpful when it came to taking group pictures. I cannot hype him enough, thank you Carl for the best wedding photos I could have every dreamed of!
Response: Thank you so much Serena! Great working with you!

Ashleigh Tuma: Carl and Charles did a phenomenal job photographing our wedding! We decided early on that we wanted to focus on getting a good photographer for our wedding, and booking Carl was hands-down the best decision we made for our wedding. Carl was incredibly prompt when responding to our emails, and both he and Charles did a great job keeping us smiling and laughing throughout the night so that they could capture more genuine smiles. Our guests are still talking about what a great job they did. In addition, Carl sent us our final photos a mere three weeks after our wedding, and we received our photobook one month after our wedding. This was substantially earlier than Carl originally quoted us, which was fantastic because we couldn’t wait to see the photos after Carl sent us a sneak preview. If you are looking for a highly talented team that is very prompt and personable, look no further!
Response: Thank you so much Ashleigh, pleasure working with you! Best wishes!

Joanna yang: Positive: Professionalism, Quality, Responsiveness, ValueCarl was referred to us by a friend. Once I saw his samples, I knew he was the one for us. I like his style. He communicates well and listened to our needs. He is also very patient with me, I'm quite picky. He doesn't come cheap, but he is well worth the price. I would recommend him to my friends.

Sean Huang: Carl & his assistant Chuck are amazing photographers, and he was our favorite/best wedding vendor! Worth every penny, and we're so grateful to have his expertise and skill on our special day. He's such a skilled photographer and also very familiar with the DMV area, so he always knows how to get good shots and make the best of the current environment. Chat with him and explain your vision; he'll definitely make it worth your while!
Response: Thank you so much Sean!
