    I had a very good experience with Nabor. The location was easy to find. He was professional and friendly and he made me feel comfortable. He gave me honest advice about which outfit and jewelry would look better on me. I was very pleased withe photo that we chose as my business portrait. I will use his service again, should I need more pictures, and I will refer people to him.

  4. #4 Natural Portraits & Events Photography

    (34 reviews)

    Maggie C.

    ...or momentous occasion and celebration. We hired Norm for an intimate wedding celebration that was indoor/outdoor. From hiring to receiving final product - including the communication throughout - the process was seamless and enjoyable (not something I'd normally associate with wedding planning!) Norm is patient, kind, personable, and has an eye for capturing those candid, special moments. He'll be my first call for future photography needs. Thank you, Norm!

  5. #5 Opened Shutter Photography

    (29 reviews)

    Kailash B.

    Quick review: It was a great pleasure to have Kenneth capture the special moments of our first baby shower. I highly recommend Opened Shutter Photography to anyone looking for professional photography services. For those interested in the specifics: We first reached out to Kenneth three weeks prior to our event to schedule a 10 min phone call to go over the specifics of the event and what his services entailed. On confirming, we were promptly asked to sign a contract and make a small deposit to confirm the appointment. On the day of the event, Kenneth was there dot-on-schedule with all the gear he promised to carry with him. The way we had the event location set-up, we had a photo-booth near the entrance, the center piece was set a little away from the photo-booth and there were guest spread all over. Given this setting, it was necessary for Kenneth to continuously juggle back and forth between the photo booth and capturing other moments and I think he managed so splendidly and effortlessly. He was always easy to locate for anyone who wanted to request a shot near the booth or somewhere else, while also making sure that he was there to capture all the key moments of the day. A lot of our guests were so pleased with his work and demeanor that they have already reached out and asked me for his contact information. The few pics we have got our hands -on, have come out really really well and I cant wait to see the whole lot once he is done working on it.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Tom Kubik Photography

(2 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

Man evolved because of his ability to tell stories that evoke compassion and understanding. With a single photograph, I can tell a story that may change the lives of others through clarity. I have the chance to make compassion accessible through visual imagery by taking words and experiences and translating them to art that is easily distributed.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

Humans are beautiful! We are capable of so much, and we often underestimate our abilities. Growing up in an impoverished neighborhood to a single mother and a family of blue collar workers, I was influenced in part by their hard work and dedication and by what they have accomplished. I can't say that a particular figure stands out as an inspiration, but it's the collective, the greater mass that has pushed me to see what I am capable of achieving. Every time I doubt myself, I ask if someone else has done this or something similar before. The answer is always yes, so why not me? When I found my gift as a photographer, it seemed only right to see how I could make the most of it, and being my own boss was the path of least resistance.

    Paul Goodsin got better and better throughout our project. He is kind and approachable, while being very professional and creating a wonderful final product. I hired him for some family photos, asking for something other than typical, and this fabulous fashion photographer answered my ad. He was kind and approachable, easy with which to make plans and showed up on time. He even drove to our home, one hour away, the week previously, to check out the photography site. He was very patient and reassuring throughout the shoot, which included my daughter doing aerial silks from a tree in a back yard. The final product was several beautiful photos, back yard transformed from overgrown yard with old fence to dreamy night sky with sparkling sky. He is especially talented with his post-production work on the photos. Really beautiful.

He took about 30 photos using different angles and lightening. After the photo shoot I picked several to be touched up. What's amazing when he used photo shop, it's like a complete makeover. Definitely recommend him to any one. I had many compliments.
