We hired Will to shoot two large group photos for a corporate training and deliver prints by the next business day and he completed the job seamlessly and professionally. He was easy to get in touch with and very reliable. I coordinated this training in 15 different markets with 15 different photographers, and Will was one of our favorites! I would recommend Will for any photography job in the area!

Tom shot my wedding and did an incredible job. He is very professional and extremely easy to get along with. He captured my wedding in exactly the way I had hoped. I would highly recommend his services to others. He is very accommodating and does the job of 10 photographers.

Brad was fantastic! When he arrived at our location, he quickly scanned the scenery, and within seconds was able to determine the most beautiful spots to shoot. He picked several places based on existing architecture, landscape and foliage. His vision was amazing! A true photographer. I was worried about all the people in the area, but he knew how to set up the shots so it looked like we were the only ones there. He was also able to direct us into poses that may have felt unnatural, but translate wonderfully to the finished photo. The results were beautiful! I'm always concerned about color and lighting - I see so many photographers get it wrong, but our photos are truly professional quality. If you want someone who strikes a nice balance between efficiency, artistry, and reasonable pricing (and who doesn't?) then I highly recommend Brad!

I have only the best things to say about Ivan and his work product! He was very communicative ahead of our event, and flexible (as we had to change the reception venue more than once!). He showed up on time before the wedding and worked with everyone in a very polite, professional manner. He took THE BEST PICTURES (we have received SO MANY compliments on his work already, just from the pictures from this event)!!! We are so blessed to have had chosen Ivan as the photographer for our daughter's wedding, we cannot recommend him more highly. YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED with ANYTHING, trust me!! I had never met Ivan or done business with him or on Thumbtack prior to using him for this December wedding, so I have no reason to provide anything other than a very candid opinion and review. I will definitely use this site again for any event planning, and if I need a photographer in the future, I would not hesitate to hire Ivan again. Thank you Ivan!!!

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.

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.

Wow! I had my very important Doctoral Grad Party in May/2018 and Susan and David from SuStudios were excellent professionals who guided me throughout the process and were extremely responsive to my needs. They arrived prior to the event and set up their equipment ... no time was wasted!!! My over 100 guests loved all of the props and the fun enthusiasm demonstrated by the photographer taking the pictures and video taping; I used their photo booth and video booth and so HAPPY I did!!! I got to see the printed photos and they were outstanding with excellent quality; the video of my guests/family was so much fun to review. A Huge "Thank you" goes to SuStudios for their excellence in the work they do! I am definitely using your company AGAIN!!!!!

Joe was a terrific photographer. I had to postpone the photos 3 times due to weather, and he was very patient and made himself available throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for drone photography and we will be hiring him again for future projects.

I cannot even begin to say how much I loved working with Landi. She has worked in the entertainment industry for years and she brings a fantastic level of professionalism to the work she does. On top of that she is also personable, fun, creative and full of lots of energy. I enjoyed my experience with Landi 200 percent and literally think of her as my go to photographer. You won't be sorry for contacting her for any of photo or even videography 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 hired Tony to take pictures for my son's 2nd birthday party. Working with Tony was super easy and he was very professional the entire time. After our initial contact, he reached out the day before to make sure that he had all the party information. His pictures were great to go through and he got some great shots of my son and his friends. The quality of the photos is excellent. He also told me that the pictures would be sent 2 days later and he actually did it! That was very impressive. I have worked with different photographers and when they say one thing, I often don't get my hopes up, but Tony did a great job and in the time frame he said he would. I would recommend him to anyone and now know who I can use in future years.

Joe is an artist. That's what will set him apart from other photographers. He has a good eye, very meticulous, and very pleasant to work with. I hired him to do a shoot for my property and he was so focused in making sure he gives his all to the photos. And it showed in the photos because they turned out amazing & magazine worthy. I would recommend him to anyone who wants to get excellent photos back. He also gives you your photos on the same day.
