BRAVO!!! Our wedding pictures are absolutely beautiful. We are very pleased with our package, I’ve referred several people to your company.

Thanks so much! Victoria R.

I just wanted to take this occasion to thank you for the photographs you sent me last week. I wanted to express my extreme happiness with the quality of the pictures. The photographer who did our wedding was amazing I can honestly say I am speechless. If anything in the future arises where I will be in need of a photographer, your company will receive the first call. Again, thank you very much for the photographic services provided and be assured that you have in me an extremely satisfied and happy customer. Simona D.

Thank you so much for taking such beautiful pictures at our wedding, May 20, 2000. The photography you provided was excellent and we appreciate your being friendly to our guests. We also appreciate how discrete you were capturing candid shots. Thank you! Nicole and Locksley

We absolutely love the photographs you took of our wedding. You really captured the special moments of the ceremony as well as the pre-wedding preparation and post wedding reception. Your selection of the locations of the more formal pictures were perfect. Its amazing to us to see from the pictures that you were where you were, because we certainly did not notice your camera much at all that date. Thank you for a job well done! Stacy and Stephanie

Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding wonderful. The music, video and pictures were definitely the BEST. Thanks Nialle C.

Thank you so much for great pictures! You did a tremendous job. I was wondering how in the world you were going to be able to get 200 pictures when there was only 20 people at my wedding. You did, and more. Everyone has said the pictures are great. Thanks again.. Barbara S.

We want to thank you so much for the great job you did photographing our wedding ceremony and reception. The photos turned out beautifully and we really feel like we got all the key moments captured. We appreciate how unobtrusive you were and we also want to say thanks for the video! Please feel free to use us as enthusiastic references. Tom and Sally

Thanks so much for your work. The pictures are great. We have been complimented by many and we know its because you photographed us at our best. Thanks for being there for us. Steph & Sam

If you are getting married (or having an event) in the NYC metro area,  save yourself a lot of hassle, running around, and money and just go straight to Washington’s Best.  You will not be disappointed.  
We hired them for our wedding reception – photographer, and jazz guitar – and it was so easy, and they were so wonderful.  Washington’s Best was recommended to me by a friend, and I am delighted that we took her advice.  Photographers alone can set you back a huge chuck of change around here.  We got 3 hours, plus 100 prints and ALL the photos on disk for $750.  Yelpers, you can’t beat that with a stick.  Making the arrangements was super easy.  After emailing David Fletcher, the director of New York’s Best, he mailed out the contracts with preaddressed and stamped return envelopes. All I had to do was sing and send it back in. Too easy.   A couple of weeks before the big day, the musician and the photographer called to check in with me. No problem there. 
Don’t let the price fool you, our photographer was just fabulous!!! Nenad Mladenovic  (http://nenadphotograph…) came to take the pictures.  He showed up before schedule and took pictures of the preparation stage.  He was fun and professional, and made sure in checking with us that he was taking pictures of the people and moments that we wanted captured. [And, he’s a cutie.  My mother and mother-in-law both have a crush on him!] From time to time he would show us the shots he was getting on the display on his camera.  They were spectacular. 
Dave Mosick  was our guitarist, providing nice relaxed jazz for our post wedding soiree.  While I did not have the personal interaction with Dave like I did with Nenad, his contribution was superlative as well.  The music was just right, and set the perfect tone for the party.  It was $300 for Dave to play two hours.  
New York’s Best is a professional organization of musicians and photographers.  I would use them again in a heartbeat.  If you have a wedding coming up, skip all the expense and annoyance of shopping around with other photographers and musicians – use Washington’s Best.  You’ll save time and money, and get the professional results that you want. Use that extra $2500 you would have spent with some other photographer, and go on a great honeymoon!

About Marcus
As easily overlooked and as seriously under appreciated as the sell-by date on that lethal carton of yogurt in the back of your refrigerator, was the date of production of L.A.¹s most delicious jazz chromatic harmonica player and blues and poetry crooner, Marcus Milius. Not even his mama was prepared for what would come that seventh month of that seventh year of that seventh decade as the doctor prophesized he would be a son of a gun.

Marcus was raised on a strict diet of his father¹s LPs: John Lee Hooker, Tom Waits, Eddie Harris, Stevie Wonder, Dr. John, and Bob Marley, among others. It was not long before that unused piece of family furniture -the piano- was finally disturbed, and soon his mother¹s guitar also was under attack.

It was only a matter of time until he had to cook up a little something of his own and began his culinary studies in harmonica, which culminated in the completion of the first-ever degree in Jazz Studies harmonica granted by the University of Southern California.

At the same time he, was stewing in the L.A. jazz and blues kitchen, and performed or recorded with such master chefs as: Yo-Yo Ma, James Moody, Anthony Wilson, Pete Chrislieb, Bobby Bryant Sr., Brian Lynch, Conrad Herwig, Ronald Muldrow, Dave Scott, Clay Jenkins, Roberto Miranda, Tom Renier, Art Webb, Carol Rodgers, and Barbara Streisand. Garage bands to casuals, rock to jazz, and blues to Brazilian, -no flavor went unsavored.

He traveled the world, playing in China, Japan, England, Scandinavia and Spain, finding the ingredients for something unique and original in each location. Marcus continues to spice it up with like-minded musicians, serving up the music you now have before you: a collection of what has come before, of what is now, and what is yet to be.
