Steve is excellent! I've worked with many photographers over the years and he is by far at the top. He is so easy going, easy to work with, and he brings out the personality in you so your photos reflect that! He is patient and goes as long as necessary to get what you need. His work is beautiful, and his post-shoot organization flows easily and is quick to respond. And his pricing is very reasonable, especially juxtaposed to the quality of work he produces. Highly recommend!

It was a pleasure working with Steve. I felt very comfortable and he was very very accommodating. I received quotes from 3 different photographers and Steve was the most expensive of them. However, after looking at his work and reviews, I decided to go with him. And I am glad I did that. In my experience, whatever he is charging, is totally, totally worth it. Highly recommended!!

I did a boudoir photoshoot with Frank. Everything about my experience was absolutely exceptional; Frank was professional, friendly, and made sure to make the experience wonderful. There was a variety of sets, and I was able to change into all of the outfits I brought, so I had a lovely variety of photos. I had several quotes from thumbtack photographers, but Frank really stood out to me and I am so glad I had him photograph me! :)

Frank took pictures of my daughter (5) and son (2) and they turned out incredible! The setting he recommended was beautiful and he was very patient with them! These are the best photos I've gotten of them and have had their pictures taken by many photographers. Thanks Frank for capturing those special moments!!!

Jaki is my go-to photographer and I have hired her for many jobs - from maternity and family portraits to professional head shots. What makes her so unique from other photographers is her ability to create a relaxed atmosphere. When Jaki walks into the session, immediately there is an air of fun, personality, and professionalism. The subject becomes relaxed and the genuine soul is caught on film. I have enjoyed every single one of my sessions and will most definitely hire her for many more.

Verified review

I have used many cheaper photographers in the past but they have always come up short in terms of quality and always felt like they were rushed jobs. I chose to use Jaki and am not going back. She spent 5x longer at the property than the cheaper competition taking many more shots and using advanced techniques to portray my listing in the best light. Would recommend to any serious Realtor that wants to stand out from the crowd.

Jaki was the photographer at our wedding in November, 2010. She did an amazing job of making me look beautiful, making my husband look handsome, and capturing the joy of the occasion! So professional and fun to work with, and she does a great job of editing and retouching. Highly recommended!

It was a pleasure to have Pearlette as a photographer. She took headshots and some more casual pictures all in an outdoor setting, and she took her time to find a number of ideal settings with just the right lighting. I am not all that comfortable being photographed, but she put me at ease and it was an enjoyable session!

Karl has been excellent to work with. He is professional, creative and communicative. His work is beautiful and he feels like an extension of my creative team even though we are located on opposite sides of the country. I would love to post images of his final work but I'm not at liberty to do that at this time. I hired Karl to take black and white portraits of employees for a multinational medical/pharmaceutical company. He brought so much character and drama to the imagery. I would hire him again in a heartbeat and highly recommend him.

Dave has taken wonderful photographs of Babette and I as well as our dog Lucy!! These were taken in his fully equipped easy access drive up studio! Daves photos of us conveyed our personalities in multiple locations including hanging on the wall, and in Social Media! Dave has also added value to my extended family by successfully enlarging a 1920 era photo so that we feel these persons are still here with us, and can see how their characteristics are being carried on through us, their ancestors!! I hope that Dave does even more photography for others, and especially for those needing family portraits, sports photography, and photo restoration!!!

We haven't had the photo shoot yet, but very responsive from when I first inquired & answered all my questions. He also showed excitement in the challenge of the job (19 adults 1 child for family portrait), which proves he loves what he does & has a passion and he also has very good ratings‼️ Our most important picture we will be doing that we have not done in 43 yrs, which I have attached. This will be the last time that all six of us six kids, along with my Mom (81) & Dad (83) will be together again‼️ We will be in same positions as in the old photo. Photo shoot is not until Sept if 2017.

David did my corporate headshots over a year ago. Pics came out just fine. He was professional, and his wife was sweet and helpful. Only thing is I wish I had known up front that his studio is in the basement of his home. I can't lie, it was creepy. But I went with it because his previous reviews at that time were positive. Looking back, I wasn't very smart about the situation. I do appreciate that David asked if he could use my pics for marketing purposes. Some photographers don't bother asking. Now that I know what to expect, I'd surely hire him again if needed.

Dave did an excellent job!! He has a very roomy and private studio with lots of props and options. He took several hours to do the shoot. And he got my pictures back very quickly. I like how we went through the photos before I left to get feedback before sending me the finals. At first I was unsure about using a male photographer, but he was very professional and I was very comfortable with him. I really felt he went above and beyond!

I recently hired Dave to do a set of boudoir photos for my husbands birthday. Dave was professional in every way and very easy to work with. It was a wonderful and empowering experience and I would highly recommend Dave to anyone needing a really good photographer.

Mikhaela photographed our daughter's 1st birthday and we couldn't have asked for a better 'artist' to photograph the event. She is a very warm person and a patient photographer which is a great quality to have when you photograph so many young children/babies. She captured the entire event beautifully and touched each and every aspect of our celebration. We are extremely happy with the results (pictures) as we had spent so much energy and love to put together the entire event by paying attention to small details, which are now brilliantly captured by Mikhaela for us to cherish. We would highly recommend Mikhaela and would love to work with her in future. Good luck for all your future ventures and we wish to work with you soon Mikhaela!!! Thank you once again for memories. -Paresha

Mikhaela was such a pleasure to work with. Very responsive and quick to make arrangements for our appointment. She made my family feel at ease in front of the camera and was open to our ideas while using her excellent skills to capture some beautiful photos. She was able to overcome a bossy 8 year old and a slightly fussy 9 month old and get some wonderful shots. The turn around for editing was quicker than any photographer I have ever worked with. She is great and I would recommend her to anyone!

Miklhaela took our wedding photographs in Peachtree City Ga. She was given a challenging timeframe of 1 hour to capture our intimate home wedding. She is very professional, has a great personality and very prompt. All photos are very good and in such little time she captured some amazing moments in the photos! We will be calling on her in the future!

Andrina is so refreshing as a photographer. Many times, you feel nervous and awkward at shoots, not knowing where to stand or how to pose. Andrina takes away that sense She allowed my family to walk freely around the lake, skip rocks, and look at the geese. Meaning, she captured us in our real life moments. Our smiles are of real joy, watching our son have fun with nature. For posed shots, she made it quick and easy. She shared some good shots with me right there on her camera! Our son is almost 4, and she did a wonderful job instructing him and being patient in his "I'm over this" moments. I highly recommend Andrina's Photography for anyone seeking true, candid shots. She most definitely captured my family in a beautiful moment of time. I'm so thankful!

First signing onto thumbtack we were very overwhelmed trying to find an affordable yet talented photographer for our big day. With many searches online it seemed like you were paying high end price for low budget editing. When my fiancé and I finally received a quote from Wayne we were not only thrilled by his affordable pricing but also the quality of photos he produces. There is no doubt that Wayne's photos portray a more natural romantic look that any one can admire. After reading Wayne's reviews and hearing how happy he has made all of his clients and his professionalism we decided to respond back to him to inquire more on his work. Just as in his reviews Wayne was a very professional and easy going. There was no haggling or hidden prices and along with his affordable pricing his payment request was definitely do able. I mean after all the other things that you have to fork up money for in having a wedding it was nice having one less giant deposit. There is no question in my mind that Wayne would have taken pride in his work if we would have went thru with him and that it would have displayed flawlessly through his photos. -We actually had a family friend ask to do our photos for us as a wedding gift to us. We want to thank Wayne for his offer he sent us and his time. -we decided to give Wayne a rating without even using him by just reviewing his work, feedback, professionalism and his affordability! We are confident he will make your day or moment perfect!

As a professional wedding coordinator for 11+ years I have had a lot of experience with photographers. Bartee was engaging without being intrusive. He's that perfect fly on the wall secretly capturing moments that would have been lost forever on a camera phone. I was blown away by the raw emotion in the pictures and how expertly he portrayed the mood even in a low light space that can be tricky for other photographers. I would whole heartedly recommend Just Bartee! The rehearsal is a uniquely intimate time during the hustle and bustle of a wedding weekend. Everyone feels the excitement and importance of the moment without the anxiety of onlookers. Having such gorgeous photos of your best friends and family is sure to be a treasure.

I entrusted DJ’s photography to do my first family portraits and they did NOT disappoint, our portraits came out amazing! I loved everything about DJ’s Photography and they helped us in more ways than we could have asked for. We didn’t have to do anything but show up because they had already chose two beautiful locations and had every shot mapped out as to where and how my family would site or pose. They were very pleasant and professional and I highly recommend DJ’s photography!

Working with Colby was a delight. I was having mother and daughter shoot done and my 4year old was being quite difficult doing my prepared shots. Colby was very patient and worked around her play and our interactions to get some fantastic pictures in our natural state highlighting our personality together. So much better than any posed photo. Her edits were beautiful and I receive compliments daily on the photos hanging in my office. Book Colby Now!!

Dekel is a rockstar photographer with both talent and personality to burn! She really understands how to take high quality photos using an artistic approach, taking in to consideration lines, form, textures, value, space, etc. She photographed our family on a dreary, cold day this year for our anniversary pictures, but despite the cold weather, she made our five year old smile, took a large variety of pictures, and traveled quite a distance just to get to us! She even surveyed the park location before we drove out to make sure it was a great setting to use. As a personal touch, she brought us a box of chocolates for our anniversary! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dekel's talent, responsiveness, and her excellent customer service. I would recommend her to anyone who wants a truly fulfilling experience with photography!
