  1. #1 Photog Willie

    (9 reviews)

    Neil F.

    Mary did an outstanding job photographing the subject of a profile in our magazine. She went above and beyond, spending plenty of time with the subject, taking a nice variety shots and making the subject feel comfortable. The finished results are superb--very creative, taking into consideration both the subject AND the setting very carefully. We will definitely hire Mary again if we have someone in the area whom we need photographed.

  2. #2 Olson Photography

    (10 reviews)

    Tammy P.

    Jami was very good to work with from start to finish. She was collaborative as we planned the session and sought to understand our vision/needs. She suggested two great locations near one another to accomplish the diversity we wanted (nature/woods and urban funky). She arrived early and was very approachable, putting us quickly at ease. She didn't suggest poses or over-engineer but wanted to capture us In candid/natural postures. At times, we could have used a few more suggestions since we are rookies and felt like we were doing the same lame pose....but the pictures turned out great with no stiff, fake or awkward poses. She was flexible and open to our ideas during the session. She promised the edited pictures in 10 days and had them done in 8. She captured some great shots and we were happy. We also found her price very reasonable and well-valued. We would recommend her and would definitely use her again.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Reflections Photography by T, Iowa

(11 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

My full-time job can be very sad and depressing at times; photography is my passion and it allows me to meet and be with amazing people. To me, photography is a lot like therapy because it's about emotions and capturing them, which I love. The fact that people allow me to be a part of something so big and wonderful is also very humbling.

Who or what inspired you to start your business?

I've been doing photography since I was very young. During high school and college, I was involved with the newspapers and yearbooks. Later, I started getting requests from people to do weddings and family portraits. I gradually built a steady network of people who’ve heard of me and seen my work, and then I decided to get it going. I worked as an assistant photographer for a few years, then as a photojournalist for a local newspaper. After that, I went out on my own.

  2. #2 Ryan DeHamer Design & Studios

    (13 reviews)

    Sarah L.

    My now husband and I hired Ryan to shoot our engagement photos and wedding, and he went above and beyond in every aspect of his work. He drove two hours to us, and for the engagement photos he stayed a couple hours extra to make sure we were satisfied. On our wedding day, he arrived early, stayed late, and took every opportunity to take a photo--he seemed to be everywhere! His height gives him an advantage, as he can spot a photo opportunity before anyone else, and my tall husband loved having someone taller than he is at our wedding. Ryan's photography is excellent, and he could have charged us far more for the high quality work he did. Even so, he was more than willing to work with our budget and provided his amazing skills at an affordable price. He is as professional as he is fun, and we felt like we forged a genuine friendship with him. My husband and I absolutely loved working with him, and we have already discussed hiring him when we have kids to do our family photos. :)
