I would give Colleen 10 stars if this website didn't limit me to 5! I first got in touch with Colleen via Thumbtack when I was looking for a photographer to capture my engagement proposal in Venice, FL. My fiance and I live in West Virginia and were planning a vacation in Venice for our 3-year anniversary. I was planning a surprise proposal on the beach, but since I had never been to Venice before, I was a bit worried about how it would all unfold. Colleen contacted me promptly via thumbtack after I submitted my information. We spoke over the phone and she was incredibly willing to help make sure that my proposal was flawless! Because I could not visit the area to plan it out, she personally drove over an hour to the spot where I wanted to propose to scout everything out. I can't tell you how much I appreciated this personal touch -- other photographers I contacted did not offer this level of customer service. I couldn't have pulled off the perfect proposal without her help! On the evening of the proposal, Colleen was camped out discretely on the beach with plenty of time to spare. She helped plan the perfect setup to capture the moment when I proposed! We did an engagement photo shoot directly after the proposal as the sun was setting on the beach. To be honest, I typically hate being photographed for any length of time, but Colleen made everything totally fun, relaxed, and enjoyable! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect proposal and photo shoot. Colleen immediately went to work editing photos, and we had several photos available that evening to share with friends and family. All the other photos were available the next day. Absolutely loved her work! All in all, the greatest thing about this experience was the personal touch Colleen offered. She was genuinely excited to be a part of this moment, and it showed in both her work and her willingness to help me plan out the perfect proposal. For anyone out there who has tried to plan a proposal in an unknown location, it can be pretty stressful. Colleen helped minimize this stress and left us with some amazing photos in the process! I've gotten countless compliments on the photos and will forever be happy that we have such beautiful documentation of our engagement.

Joe was the absolute best! We had some weather conditions working against us but he always remained calm and even listen to me cry over the phone. Even with just him photographing the wedding, he captured every moment flawlessly. He answered every request I had when it came to example photos that I had shown him prior to the big day. He was on time, professional, and blended into the crowd to get some fabulous candid shots. He was recommended to me by a friend and I am so happy i went with him. It was also amazing that he wasn’t ridiculously expensive like all the other wedding photographers. He is one of a kind!

Allan is a professional who accommodates your schedule and utilizes expert technique to capture the best angle and lighting for each subject. Graduation is a special event and deserves to be commemorated with portraits which illuminate the graduate so that others can participate in the celebration even if they are not able to attend...Allan's portraits convey the joy, pride, and achievements of the individual. Knowing the working of a camera is only a small part of capturing the spirit of a person in a portrait; Allan is a master with great attention to detail!

Jessica did my senior pictures, this was the first time I had ever had pictures done and she was amazing, you can see her passion in photography and that is what makes her such a great photographer to work with! She had my pictures edited and done in less then a week! I Highly recommend her for any and all events, portraits, family pictures, etc. Great experience having her do my senior pictures!

Marsha Kemp was one of the best photographers I have ever worked with! She made me feel extremely comfortable in front of the camera. She had a very good understanding of the "look" I was trying to pull off, and she nailed it! I will highly recommend her to anyone!!! She was the first person to get back to me on Thumbtack. Which I was very pressed for time and needed a headshot within that two days. She was quick with lots of ideas, helped with discussing clothing, hair, and makeup. Thanks to Marsha I have KILLER headshots! :)

We hired Robert and his team for our wedding back in April. We had them do both the photography and videography. Team did a great job of arriving on time and worked for 8 hours until the latter part of the reception. Had two photographers and a videographer. Great wedding shots and felt like we had just enough for what we wanted given we did not want to spend the entire wedding taking photos. Was very good about setting up the photo to set the shot and directing us on where to stand and look. I think overall we ended up with about 300 final photos which was plenty because no one wants to sort through 800 photos. Video was great quality and all in 4K. Videographer had some fancy stabilization. We received a few minute highlight video and then all the raw footage. Overall would highly recommend, especially for the value.

Peter and his wife Christy did a fantastic job as photographers for my wedding. They arrived and departed at the exact times we'd agreed upon, and they had wonderful suggestions for photos that would show off the venue we'd selected. I would recommend Peter and Christy to anyone looking for professional photography!

She is amazing she made my wife feel like a beautiful queen. On a day that is full of stress she took away the stress instead of adding to it like some photographers. As I go through the pictures you can see the love and joy that brought my wife and I to that beautiful day.

Heather is an amazing photographer that captured the silliness and craziness in our family. She was relaxed and allowed us to be ourselves and took as many photos as we needed to get the whole family and individuals. I would hire her again!

Tiara was great. She took her time with me and my daughters hair and makeup for a photo shoot and trial for my wedding. She is professional and efficient. Our photo shoot was outside. She was able to get the job done. I can't wait to have her beautify me for my big day!

I met with Lorraine prior to my event and she showed me some of her work and it was very impressive. Lorraine was wert personal and listened to what I wanted to do, but also offered suggestions and options I hadn’t thought of doing. The price was right and she had all the equipment , including beautiful backdrops to really enhance my experience. Lorraine was very patient with my family and I when it came to posing and taking the pictures. The overall experience was very pleasant and I would recommend Lorraine to anyone who wants professional grade photos and experience without having to pay the high costs that Studio Photographers charge. You definitely need to call Lorraine for any event and talk to her about your options.
