"The pics from Mother's Day were absolutely beautiful. You have a way of capturing my kids in pictures where they look beautiful, yet natural too. Most of the time professional pictures look awkward and stiff but not these. You could get a true essence of each of their personalities just from looking at the pictures. Even the little one with his "smile issues" looks great!!! Thanks again, so much!"
Alyssa Croston, Mt. Sinai, NY
"Martha brought enthusiasm and professionalism to the photo shoot for my salon's grand opening. Having seven women of various ages all agree on many photos was a pleasure."

"Martha is fantastic! From gala dinners to intimate cocktail receptions ......she captures the vision and spirit of an event. The consummate professional!

"If you are reading this letter, you are probably interested in Martha Gorfein for your event. Do not even consider using Martha if what you are after is a typical "assembly line" type of album which looks just like every other Bar/Bat Mitzvah, Sweet Sixteen or Wedding album.
Quite simply put, Martha is an artist. Her photographs are vibrant, pulsing with life, capturing a person or a moment so beautifully that they seem magical.
She photographed my daughter's Bat Mitzvah this past March and we could not have been more pleased with the results. We chose not to videotape the party and honestly, Martha's ability to document the action through her photographs make a videotape seem unnecessary.
Martha is a perfectionist, as artists usually are. She worked tirelessly on the proofs, constantly revising the lighting or presenting some shots in black and white because they looked more interesting that way.
Finally, it was fun to work with Martha, both during our event and after. I am looking forward to our son's Bar Mitzvah in 2013. Although we haven't decided where the party will be, we have already booked our photographer.
Dr. Naomi Sadowsky, Roslyn, NY

"Martha Gorfein made all my dreams come true for having the most expressive, magnificent photographs of my granddog Gigi. She knows just how to compose beautiful arrangements of her dog portraits - she created two unbelievable posters of our French bulldog Gigi that surpassed anything I could ever imagine. We had more than enough beautiful photographs to choose from; Martha Gorfein created one as a black and white photo which looks like it came right out of a museum. Look no further - Martha is the best dog photographer you will find and I am extremely grateful and fortunate to have used her for Gigi's photo shoot!"
Rita Rothenburg, Art teacher
Thank you for the beautiful photos of Henry. You captured his impish playful personality. Great job. We absolutely love them."
