    McCann Photo Perfect

    (5 reviews)

    I look to operate in the narrow space between what our clients want from their photo shoot, and what I can see. Learning about them, and then watching them, I seek to find something about them that they may not have ever seen, but that I can show with my photography. I love looking at the initial photos, for the first time, and finding things that I didn't see during the photo shoot, but that I know are there.

  • Aly Carroll Photography

    (2 reviews)

    I have a background in fashion design, this allows me to take photos to another level. I love trying new angles, switching up locations all the time, & sometimes even pushing fashion limits. My photos tell a story, I love setting up the scene & capturing every moment, either between a couple in love, new parents with their baby, or a model showing off a new line. I love capturing each person's unique personality & passion for life and transforming it into great photos you will have forever. I love being able to be creative & try new things.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Ben Sandness Photography

(38 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

As a professional photographer, I get the pleasure of sharing great moments with my clients. Whether I am shooting a wedding, family portraits, or even corporate headshots, photos mark milestones in our lives. I love working with my awesome clients to creating beautiful images that will help them remember these great moments for years to come. I also love wedding cake. I eat the stuff all the time, and I can't get enough of it. I love dogs at weddings. I love making nicknames for people when I can't remember their name, and I love getting to spend an entire wedding day with a couple and their inner circle of family and friends.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I began Ben Sandness Photography as a way to do what I love while also maximizing time with my family. I really put myself into any job that I've had, but building a business has allowed me to focus that effort into something that is mine. I wouldn't be here without the love, patience, support, and occasional organizational assistance of my loving wife, Nichole and my assistant/daughter, Nora. Also, my tax guy said that being self-employed was the only way that milk shakes could be tax deductible.
