I researched portrait photographers for a client. Karolina's portfolio looked good. The headshots came put great.
Nicole and Jay did an excellent job capturing the important and special moments of my wedding ceremony and reception. It truly was our dream wedding and they took beautiful shots. Every time I look at my pictures I love them even more. Nicole took some artistic shots (in between a picture frame on a table) and some really beautiful shots a lake. Nicole and Jay were very friendly and accommodating to take any pictures we wanted and planned their own pictures as well. Overall, we had a great experience with them and would recommend them for your wedding photographers.
I found Carrie on thumbtack and she was professional yet so much fun to work with! My 3 mo old was stunned by the big camera & would not smile. Carrie pulled out all the stops to try to coax a smile from him & get a couple. Her artistic eye & creative positioning were much appreciated as I am an artist myself. I felt she listened to my input & took it into account. She was a pleasure to work with & I would highly recommend her. Plus her pricing was very reasonable. So many photographers charge way too much for digital photos and that's why I did not go with them. Plus she came to my house! I can honestly say it was a fun and stress free experience thanks to her!!
Steven is a very enjoyable, extremely talented photographer. I worked with Steven on a outdoor, Autumn-themed photo shoot in 2013, and I had a blast. During the shoot, Steven was friendly, lively, and full of amazing ideas. The photos that resulted from the shoot are gorgeous portraits that I was excited to use on my website and for other promotional materials. Steven also has an enormous amount of experience with event photography. I was lucky enough to be a subject in many of Steven's event photos from the Bristol Renaissance Faire. Gorgeous photos that capture the colors, energy and liveliness of the streets of Bristol. I could have not asked for a better experience with a a more lovely person. I would definitely recommend Steven as a photographer to any of my friends looking for portrait, event, and promotional photography.
Visual Ettiquette's lead photographer, Emil, is an AMAZING photographer and choosing to work with him was one of the best decisions about our wedding!!! My wife and I hired Emil to shoot our photos for our recent wedding in Downtown Chicago. First off, Emil is hands down a great guy who talked with us over the phone before the wedding discussing all the details of our wedding day and offered up some great suggestions for where to shoot around the city. On the day of the wedding he promptly arrived on time, even with all of the crazy Chicago traffic that morning. His warm heart, charming personality, and artistic eye made shooting with him super fun and relaxed. Shooting with him was actually one of the highlights of our day when we went around Chicago getting photographed in the snow around Grant Park and the Planetarium. I can still remember Emil running around (yes actually running) in order to find all the artistic angles to take our photos. He even stood on frozen Lake Michigan to get us the best shots of what ended up looking like photos the wedding photos of our dreams. Oh yeah and for all this, he is 1/4 the price we were quoted by other artistic photographers. Emil gets my wife and I's highest recommendation!!! If you want top notch artistic wedding photography that is still affordable, Emil is your guy! I never knew my wife could be such a supermodel until Emil photographed her!
Martika did a great job shooting my daughters graduation photos. She was very professional and accomodating. I plan to hire her again in the near future to shoot me and family. I highly recommend Martika!!
As a photographer myself (no longer in the industry) I know exactly what I am looking for and Jack more than surpassed our expectations. After learning that our "regular" photographer for our fashion campaigns (for social media), had unexpectedly left the country, we were in a time crunch :( There were many challenges throughout the shoot, (None related to the photographer) our location which was booked online did not meet expectations, the outdoor location was barren and the day was extra windy etc. These things happen. However Jack's timely and professional demeanor saved the day. He is very skilled at problem solving and knows his stuff. What we thought was a brightly lit space was not, thankfully Jack was prepared to deal with the lighting issues. Once we received our images we could not be more thankful! Most photographers can get decent shots in a perfect location with all the time in the world. But it takes an amazing photographer to turn the worst of situations dealt to him around and have it so you never knew there were any challenges. We are planning to have Jack be our go to photog from now on.
Mike has a great way with people, putting them at ease to get excellent results. We appreciate his flexibility and desire to get shots that people can truly be proud of. I've met many headshot photographers over the years, and I consider Mike to be among the best of them.
From start to finish Nikki was positive and professional to work with and our wedding photos came out exactly the way we wanted! She took great care in researching beautiful locations in our area, planning for the forecasted rain, and making sure we were comfortable. All of the careful planning shows in the gorgeous photos we received. We could not recommend Nikki more highly if you are looking for a photographer to capture a private/intimate ceremony.
It was a great experience. Sally is not only a great photographer, she is a gifted makeup artist, patient and takes care of every detail. I highly recommend her.
The Maestro Media did an amazing job capturing all the special moments of our wedding day. We could not be happier with their work. Videographer, Mark Condra, was there working right alongside the photographer, capturing every imaginable detail. He worked so well with us and with our other vendors, helping the day go exactly as planned. The final products are videos we cherish and will use in the years to come to relive our wedding day. They gave us a copy of the full ceremony, footage of the toasts & first dances, a surprise shoutout video from friends & family (which we loved watching on our honeymoon) and such a creative, catchy highlight video that truly depicts the vibe of the whole day. Maestro Media was so quick in getting the final products to us. We won't hesitate to highly recommend them to friends and family looking for a talented, professional videographer.
I needed a professional headshot photo in a short timeframe. Since I never had professional photos done before and had no idea how to find a good professional in order to help me out, I was initially relatively intimidated by the process. Looking up the websites from several photographers, most were only advertising wedding and recreational photography services. Robert put me at ease from the very beginning, showing me some sample headshots he took and explaining me the whole process as well as what I could expect. During all of my interactions with Robert, he has been very professional. Also, it is obvious that he is passionate by what he is doing. He overall did exceed my original expectations, delivering some excellent headshots in a very short timeframe!
I have to say that I interviewed a lot of photographers for my wedding and hands down WS photography was my pick. They really made an effort to figure out what I wanted to see in my photos and gave me great advice/recommendations for the shoot. Milan is very creative and helped me to envision exactly what I was looking for. My fiancé and I booked them right away and set up the date for our engagement shoot. Our engagement shoot was a ton of fun and it was nice to have a photographer who was not only talented, but had a fun and positive attitude the entire shoot. It is important I feel for the photographer one chooses to not only be talented in photography, but also a lot of fun to be around since they are sharing your wedding day with. When I got the photos back from our engagement shoot I could not believe how beautiful and cool the pics came out. The day of our wedding Milan and his assistant showed up on time and ready to have fun. The entire day was a blast and I couldn't have asked for a better wedding. Our photos came out even better then I ever thought wedding photos could look and once I posted them on Facebook my friends/family went crazy over the photos. The photos literally looked like they had been pulled out of a magazine. Milan exceeded my expectations and I am so happy that he was there on my wedding day to capture our special moment.
I can't say enough lovely things about All Corporate Video and Photo. Mike Kozuchowski was so fantastic to work with- I was looking for a last minute photographer for an event I was throwing only a few days before the event. Mike was nothing but professional, easy to work with and went above and beyond what was asked of him. I will definitely work with him again in the future, when another project comes up and I highly recommend to anyone that is looking for a photographer and or a videographer. Thanks Mike!
We had a great experience with Tony. He arrived early which was nice to not have to worry about where's my photographer? I had looked through portfolios of other photographers and just really like his style. Although it was a little more than the other quotes I feel I was well worth it. The other examples I saw were pretty average. You can tell that Tony has a lot of experience with photography. My pictures turned out great and he got them done so fast! I would highly recommend this company for your photography needs!
Harry, was a great photographer and very flexible for candid proposals. If you are ever in Chicago and want a candid photo of the moment he is the one to hire. Satisfied.
Michael was professional and courteous and clearly knew his business. He communicated clearly over the course of our two day event and snapped some unforgettable photos that added life to a relatively reserved conference. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a professional photographer, particularly if they’re hosting a multi-stage event as we did.
The experience with Chris was fantastic! Not only is he a consummate professional, but he made the experience so fun, easy and positive. Unlike most family photographers, there was nothing staged. He just let us play and talk, and captured the most magical moments of our family being ourselves. I would highly recommend him to any family who is tired of standing by a picket fence or in front of a backdrop for their family photos. It is truly a unique end product that you will treasure!
Working with Ryan was a pleasure and I couldn't be happier with the photos he took. Choosing a wedding photographer can seem like a daunting task and I'm glad I found Ryan. Him and his assistant were helpful and creative when taking the pre-wedding photos with just my groom and me, and at the ceremony and reception they were attentive and present to capture every moment. Ryan made the picture-taking process fun, as well, and instead of feeling stiff and awkward with cameras pointed at us my groom and I were at ease and enjoying ourselves. Can't recommend him enough!
Ryan was a great asset to our event! He provided excellent pictures and we enjoyed his professionalism! The quality of the pictures was to the highest standards, and his timely matter was great! I would recommend for anyone looking for a photographer in the area!
We hired Eric to take photos at a large party to celebrate our MBA graduation, and we couldn't have been more pleased with his excellent work! He mingled throughout the party without being obtrusive, staged great shots where appropriate, indulged the requests of our quests, and captured some amazing candid shots throughout the night--all of which were quickly made available to us via Dropbox. I'd definitely hire him again!
