  • Trueworld Photography

    (3 reviews)

    I like to think of myself as a story teller with a camera. From portraits to events and weddings, from animals to architecture, I create professional photographs through my knowledge and intuition of light, emotion, and composition. If your photo needs to involve anything that relates to the outdoors, I am your girl! I work best in natural light and draw much of my inspiration from nature. My main goal is to ensure your peace of mind. I am flexible as to which days and times you might need me for a shoot. I can provide photographs on long-life archival discs or as high quality prints. I can also create a private online gallery where you can view your photos on your computer screen before choosing which ones you would like printed or put on DVD. Please check out my website and facebook page! I look forward to hearing from you.

  • Melanie Leach Photography

    (2 reviews)

    I work well with clients and their schedules. I am friendly and reasonably priced. I work with the client's needs to make sure that they receive the best finished product. I have had a passion for art, specifically photographing people for quite some time. I would say that I go above and beyond the make sure the best pictures are taken and work well with what clients want. I do my research for each session in order to find the best poses and places to create high-quality photos.

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.

  3. #3 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. :)
