I've been to many photographers before, but they're not up to par compared to my head shots Ive taken with Adam. I actually had to have him edit a recent headshot I took by another photographer even though he didn't take the pic himself. I highly recommend you check out his work. Also, for the people of color, he knows what lighting works with different shades of skin complexions - so no worries, he's got you covered! :) Thank you Adam!

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!

Brad was absolutely AMAZING! You can tell he genuinely loves what he does, which is my favorite thing about Brad. I was a bit nervous hiring a photographer that I hadn't officially met in person, especially since photography is one of the most important things for a wedding. Brad did not disappoint. He arrived 30 minutes early, bright eyed and ready to go. He paid SUCH close attention to detail, and was really into getting the perfect shot. He gives you little sneak peaks on his camera so you can see how amazing everything is turning out. He had plenty of equipment, was very creative with his shots, and quick to capture the moments. I knew this man was the truth when he sent over a few highlights the very next morning. I mean, who is so into what they do that they're still working on your stuff after shooting for 8 hours the day before? I can't think of anyone! He was super pleasant, and fun. I felt comfortable talking to him and asking him questions or for certain shots. He wasn't one of those snobby photographers that try to boss you around and don't listen to what you want. Anyway, I could go on and on about how amazing Brad is, but I think you get the picture. If you're nervous about hiring him, don't be. He's the best and you won't regret it!

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!

Sheryl was the photographer at our wedding, and I cannot say enough about the amazing job she did. Everything from her communication to her professionalism was outstanding. She made everyone at the wedding feel comfortable and at ease. I was so impressed with the little things she did like making sure my dad has his boutonniere on before the ceremony and capturing the moments that I would never have thought of. Above all if you want a photographer to be creative and use her artistic skills to create breathtaking results, then Sheryl is the one!

I recommend Danielle very highly. My husband and I did an engagement photoshoot last night. Danielle was on time, very fun and adventurous for creative pictures, puts you at ease, she loves what she does and that makes it great because you know the work will be good. We had a sunset shoot and it was perfect! She knew where to go, how to pose and also was open for more ideas if we wanted. We were there before the sunset so had fun before during and after it. We cannot wait to see all the photos! Thank you Danielle :) PS: she will be our wedding photographer as well.

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.

Dino is a pleasant and creative photographer. He was easy to communicate with and arrived on time. I never felt rushed and he wanted to try another location when I was ready to call it a day. He was right, those photos are fabulous! Besides being a good businessman, his exposure is perfect, focus is crisp, framing is excellent, and I will find it hard to narrow down my choices. I highly recommend Dino and Aloha Photography!

As a Realtor for 12 years I can confidently say that David is quick, quality and amazingly professional. In all the years of doing Real Estate I have only come across a very small amount of professional and qualified photographers and videographers, and David definitely fills that category. I called him on a Saturday and he made it to my listing within an hour, was fair on pricing and worked with me along the way to create a wonderful video. My clients were highly impressed as well as myself. I will be using David for all of my Real Estate needs moving forward.

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.

Thank you Mukaila for being such a great photographer for my son's first birthday! My guests thought that the pictures turned out well. Mukaila communicated well through email with specifics of our party. He also arrived on time and was able to take pictures of all the details of our party like I wanted. He was also able to be inconspicuous when he needed to be to get all the action pictures. Turn around time for the pictures was only a week. That is a lot quicker than a lot of other photographers that I have worked with before. If we ever have another event, I would definitely get a hold of Mukaila again.

My wife and I hired Laura and Erica at The Vision Field to be the videographers at our wedding and it ended up being one of the best decisions we made throughout our entire lengthy wedding planning process. First of all, Laura and Erica were an absolute pleasure to work with. They were always extremely quick to respond to all of our questions whether they be related to the type of equipment they would be using or the type of videography we wanted them to capture. During our planning meeting with them over the phone they also knew how to ask us all the right questions in order to make sure they would provide us with exactly the type of service we were expecting. And they were always happy and full of energy, which somehow made us even more excited for the big day as it approached. When the wedding day came they arrived early and were fully prepared with all of their equipment. Our ceremony was at a Catholic church, our reception was in the backyard of a private residence, and we stopped for wedding party photos at a third location in between, and throughout all of this movement Laura and Erica were always able to keep up with the group without us having to worry about them. What actually made us most happy with The Vision Field, in fact, is how they managed to capture every single important moment of our wedding day without ever distracting or getting in the way of us or any of our guests. We hardly noticed that they were there at all, and yet they still ended up delivering incredible footage that perfectly captured every aspect of our ceremony and reception. Whenever my wife and I relive our wedding memories by watching and listening to all the high-quality video and audio, we feel as if we're still there, and in this way Laura and Erica have made our wedding last forever. They're not only videographers and photographers but also musicians and audio engineers, and they therefore know exactly how to record and deliver a perfect product package. We certainly made the right choice by asking The Vision Field to be there with us on our big day and we're thrilled with all that they have done for us. They are good people and experienced professionals, and we fully recommend that you choose to work with them too!

Victoria took my new headshots for me and they turned out amazing! She really knows what she's doing. Very professional. She also had some creative ideas, great direction, and she was fun to work with! I recommended her to a friend of mine who is recently engaged, and my friend also loved her engagement photos. I would gladly keep recommending Victoria.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
