Dayvid was great to work with for my daughter's quinceañera . I researched a lot of photographers and he is the only one that made me feel comfortable enough to book without meeting him since I live out of state. He showed up on time was very easy to talk to and gave me a great product. I would definitely use him for my other daughter if he is still around.

Brad Zangwill and staff are by far the most amazing photographers ever--would Never have photography done with anyone else. This project was our wedding. Of course we wanted everything perfect--and it was. Brad shows such enthusiasm, creativity, and sensitivity to what we wanted. He suggested things I didn't even think to do. He was so very easy to get a hold of--always responding back to me--Same Day!! He was always on time. The quality of the pictures were outstanding, all at reasonable cost, and he is just one easy man to work with. Because he kept his cost down, I was able to include other things--like a little interview of us that he showed at the wedding before the ceremony started. People really loved that! No need to look further--he is your man!! I am happy to recommend him and would be happy to speak with anyone individually as well...just call. 909-240-9211--kathy

Nona is hands down one of the best photographers our family has ever worked with! Very professional and extremely good at what she does. We had to reschedule d/t the bipolar Houston weather and she worked well (and FAST) to get everything done, EVEN had a few pics ready in less than 24hrs!! I only wish we could've gotten the remaining photos a little sooner as a small project I was working on was delayed (and so many were so good!). To be fair, she delivered on her original ETA AND photos were done just before the holidays, so we know she was very busy. I would absolutely recommend her to everyone I know, our pictures have gotten rave reviews from family and friends!

I needed new work headshots and a family photo with my 3 dogs. This was my first time using Thumbtack and I received bids from 5 local photographers. I decided to to with John Glover because of the precision and great attention to detail I noticed in his sample photos. John's photos came out nothing short of amazing, he even captured all my dogs at attention at once. My headshots came out better than any headshots I've ever taken. Highly recommend using him.

Over the years, I have engaged photographers all around the country for corporate events and Kelli MacTaggart is the best I've ever hired.

Danielle was our wedding photographer for our April 10th wedding. She was amazing! She was very easy to work with and very personalable. Very easy to get along with personality. I felt very comfortable around her and she was really good at directing us for different positions for pictures. You could tell she loves what she does. Her passion really comes out in her work. She also loved my picture ideas that I suggested as well. She really captured the moment for us. Can't wait to see all the pictures! I would be excited to use her again for a future!!

My family and I had a great experience with Sheryl. We had a huge family photo shoot due a very meaningful reunion- with a newborn, several Oct. birthday celebrants, and a family member that has been in remission with cancer for one year to the date. I was coming from out of state and I searched online for photographers. What caught my attention and what drew me to Sheryl was her great eye and great shots from her portfolio. The colors in her pictures were vivid and creative and wanted to have memorable family photo shoot. She was very professional, easy to contact and talk with. One family member has to be careful with large crowds due to health issues, and she worked well with the space we had. She was resourceful, efficient and accommodating. And she worked well with all the kids- which were 6 in total! Overall, I highly recommend Sheryl for her professionalism, her talent, and for her thoughtfulness.

My first experience with Kenny was an email exchange. The exchange was friendly, energetic and positive and set the tenor and tone for the entire experience. A phone conversation ensued, and that was again positive and friendly and upbeat. In fact, Kenny is not only a professional, but he’s one who is enthusiastic about his chosen métier. I mentioned that I’m a serious amateur photographer and he immediately jumped at the chance to talk about his passion. In other words, Kenny is not only interested in the business end of things but truly enjoys his work and talking about it. I immediately felt comfortable with him. Kenny was the first of several photographers from Thumbtack that were on my list of contacts. But, as a result of the very positive conversation I had with him, I decided to hire him right then and there. The day of the photo session Kenny was ready to go on time. He welcomed me warmly into his studio and we proceeded to create some very nice looking professional head shots and 3/4 shots. Probably because Kenny remembered talking to me about my interest in photography, he explained things as he went along such as how and why he was lighting his subject in a certain way. He loves “talking shop” and I think this is a sign of someone dedicated to his art. I think this kind of individual makes the best professional. And the proof is borne out of the results. Kenny created some very nice photos about which I’ve already received numerous compliments and enthusiastic praise from family, friends and colleagues alike. I would definitely hire Kenny again. And… I still enjoy talking to him about photography. We still exchange emails and he’s still friendly and genuine. I can highly recommend Kenny to you for your professional photo needs.

Elizabeth just did my wife and I's first baby shower in California. Elizabeth took some gorgeous pictures. She was very personable and professional. Everyone at the baby shower loved her. She has such great energy. Elizabeth did a wonderful job capturing all of our memorable moments throughout the baby shower, from the beginning to the end. She even took time out to take pictures of each individual family. We received our pictures within a few days after the baby shower. I highly recommend BlushPix and Elizabeth for any event. Thanks again Elizabeth. You are awesome!!!!

Susan is an amazing photographer.  The pictures look like they belong in the hospitals (labor and delivery wing) and in magazines. I was so happy when she took time with the baby and didn't rush. She was so loving and understanding and we even stopped between the shoot to feed baby. When baby was crying, she encouraged me to stop and pick her up to calm her and then we would start again whereas at other studios I felt rushed and like I was inconveniencing them. She has an amazing imagination and she was relentless to find the perfect shot for the baby. When the baby was too fussy she figured out a way to take the shots of her ON ME!! You can't even tell I was holding her. In my opinion, that is truly amazing! You could really tell this is a talent and true passion of Susan's. The pictures came out so amazing and I would definetly use her again for any of our photographic needs.

Hugh is a great guy, a real pro photographer, easy to work with, and creative at a thumbtack competitive rate. I'm a Realtor and have worked with other photographers before. Set a time to meet and he even scouted the area beforehand for multiple locations ready to shoot; and spent a lot of time with us too. Offered a proof sheet, we picked out favorite photos, and he retouched the photos and delivered with a fast turnaround. Will use him again.

I put out a thumbtack request for a photographer the night before my wedding anniversary in a last minute effort to try to give my wife the gift of family pictures for out anniversary. Due to my last minute request I was sure no photographers would be able to come out the very next day. Within 2 minutes of me submitting the thumbtack request Rachel actually called me on the phone and said she would love to come out the very next day and take our family pictures! Rachel was so accommodating and even was answering text message questions I was sending until 11:00 P.M. that night! The day of my anniversary I surprised my wife with a beautiful little family pictures certificate that Rachel had made custom for me the night before. Rachel met up with us that afternoon for the photo shoot and she even drove all the way up Big Cottonwood Canyon where we wanted the photos done. Rachel's patience with our screaming kids was amazing and her professionalism was unsurpassed. Rachel also has an amazing eye for art and photography and thought of some amazing ways and ideas to capture some truly amazing moments of our family. She really captured the relationships our family shares instead of just pictures of our family staring at the camera smiling. I HIGHLY recommend Rachel. Thanks Saints Photography!!!

Initially was afraid of the professionalism of the photographers, we never met with them in person. We communicated all by emails, text and phone calls. Once they showed up they were great, good team work! Such a great experience. Antonio was such a great leader and he knows his stuff. It was amazing!! We are excited and can not wait to see our wedding pictures and videos. They were so great even when we booked 1 month in advance for photographer and 1 week in advance for videography. There is not enough stars to show how satisfied we are with them.
