My son, Austin, had a one hour photo shoot with Karolina at her home studio. We explained what we were looking for in the pictures and she delivered excellent shots in the time she promised. She was excellent to work with and I would definitely work with her again. What a difference a professional photographer makes!

Carrie is awesome. I can tell you that, as a professional photographer myself, I am choosy about who I let do my photos. But, she is fantastic and did a wonderful job for us! I highly recommend her!

Philip was great! We hired him to photograph my grandmother's 100th birthday party, and he was incredibly responsive and punctual. Should I need a professional photographer in the future, I would absolutely choose to work with Philip again.

Agnes arrived early. Emil happened to be along so we had TWO photographers! They were so professional and captured everything we asked and much more. They filled the entire two hours of the contract with a constant stream of photos. We were so satisfied we cut the cake early and let Agnes go on to her next event -- we couldn't imagine anything else to be captured. We'd very highly recommend Emil and Agnes!!

I couldn't have asked for a better photographer! Kimia is very professional yet she feels like a very good friend! She will always update you through email/text and I always get a reply from her right away! She took my pictures in downtown Chicago and she picked out beautiful locations to take the photos. I had so much fun with her and I would 100% recommend everyone to hire Kimia!! Not only does she focus on detail, she is also very knowledgable about photography and she knows how to get the perfect natural lighting/angle in every picture. She made me feel comfortable and it was easy to express myself! All the pictures turned out amazing and I have never been more satisfied in the results! Her pricing is also very reasonable compared to other photographers in the area who charge almost double! She is perfect for portraits, weddings, family photoshoots, senior portraits, headshots, etc...! Her work is absolutely amazing and I will definitely be working with her again in the future! Thank you Kimia for a wonderful experience!

GREAT, GREAT, GREAT! I can not recommend Danielle Heinson enough! My wife and were on a budget and posted an ad seeking a wedding photographer on Craigslist but we were nervous about doing so. We were bombarded with responses. Most of which were mediocre photographers and basically what you would expect from posting to Craigslist on a whim. Two photographers stood out to us and we in the end decided on Danielle. We could not be happier with that choice. She was an absolute joy to work with! Easy to contact with and to do so on your time. Oh, and her photos are FANTASTIC! You can not go wrong. She is very easygoing while maintaining a professional relationship. She really did a great job and we can not recommend her enough.

I am absolutely 100% satified with Martika P. Gartman Photography. I have hired many Event Photographers for both Family and Church Events over the years. However, I must say that Martika P. Gartman Photography is the "best" Event Photographer that I have ever seen with my own eyes. She knew "exactly" how to pose and line up persons for photographs. She took her time, and the Event photographs are excellent "keep-sakes" for everyone attending the Church Event to hear my daughter, Dr. Sheri Prentiss, give a presentation about her newly published book," WHEN EVERYTHING CHANGED: MY JOURNEY FROM PHYSICIAN TO PATIENT", an inspiring book about Dr. Sheri as a breast cancer survivor. Thank you, Thumbtack Staff for making the "contact" between myself and Martika P. Gartman Photography.

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!

This was our first family photo session with our 6 month old. I also had Konrad take professional photos for me. I could not have asked for a better photographer! Konrad was easy to work with from our first call where he asked a lot of great questions, to working through location challenges the day of, to engaging our son so he could get great shots. He brought his assistant who was amazing at suggesting poses and giving guidance. We are so pleased with our images and look forward to having him as our photographer going forward.
