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!!
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 be happier about the work Kimia did for a baby shower I threw for my brother and sister-in-law. The pictures are beautiful and she captured so many candid moments that my family and I will treasure. In the past, I've always had issues with event photographers not covering everyone - but she was able to capture all of our guests having a good time. She is very prompt with communication and is able to address any questions you may have. With event photography, it's difficult because one you receive the product, there's no going back. You can trust that Kimia will capture the entirety of the event you worked so hard to plan. I highly recommend Kimia!!
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've had the pleasure of working with Abbey on several occasions. Most recently, she took photos of my impromptu civil wedding. She met my partner and I at city hall equipped with two bouquets of roses and ready to shoot. She captured the emotion of the moment despite the mundane setting and made a trip to the courthouse feel like a beautifully orchestrated wedding ceremony. If you're looking for a pro photographer with outstanding customer service, look no further; Abbey is the professional for you!
Lori was early to the site, and very flexible. She even met me on a holiday. Her photos are fantastic. Price is competitive with other area photographers. She does great work, highly recommend her.
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!
Could not have had a better experience with a photographer. Harry was responsive to my initial requests, was punctual, took candid and nice quality photos of our events (trust me, this is not always the case, even with professional photographers!), he sent me the pics quickly, and top of all that, he generously donated to our cause!
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!
I have worked with a number of photographers over my 40 year as a clay artist, and Lane Cameron is , by far the best of any of them as far as professionalism and quality of his work. The work was done in and around my studio in suburban Chicago. Lane spent most of an afternoon on the job, and I cannot think of anything that could have been done better. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for quality work done in a skilled and professional manner
Mark and Phil photographed our wedding in July 2017. They were extremely fun and easy to work with. Their professional eye for lighting and detail allowed for unique and elegant photos. Retiro Photo captured our special day, and gave us memories we will always cherish. I would (and do) recommend them for anyone looking for modern, fresh photographers!
Ryan was the consummate professional. His work is outstanding, and each picture he took told a story. My wife and I used his services both for our engagement and wedding pictures, and we were far from disappointed. For the engagement photos, he lead us through Chicago to some hotspots, shot us sifting through a vinyl record shop we stumbled across in our travels (we are huge music nerds), and finished up at our favorite pizza joint and took one of our favorite pictures there. At the wedding, he was there early, left late, and took many great shots. He took a great combination of both posed and candid photos, kept us on track without ever seeming pushy or even creating a moment of urgency, and what I liked about him the most, is he was able to communicate very well, changing on the situation. He seemed more like a friend than a hired photographer. He allowed us to do all the poses we wanted, and suggested others we hadn’t thought of. Even a few wedding guests made mention that he wasn’t the typical wedding photographer. I would recommend Ryan 100% of the time. Amazing work, great price, good guy all around. I’m not going to say not hiring him will bring you 27 and a half years of bad luck, but do you want to risk it? Hire him today. Side note, I wanted to add pictures of his work, especially our “Lady and the Tramp” style photo we took at the pizza joint (previously mentioned favorite picture-his idea, by the way), but either my phone doesn’t understand that “Add Photos” means to open my picture gallery instead of my document files, or I am too dumb to figure out how to make it work. If Ryan posts that specific photo somewhere, you can see it. If not, anything else he posts is a good barometer of the quality you’ll get from him.
Alyson was great at helping me figure out thr best outdoor location for our family photos and was perfectly willing to travel near where i live. Once we met her at location, she arrived early and was very nice and approachable. She made our family feel very comfortable during the photo session and brought some photo examples and suggestions, which turned out to be exactly something i would have chosen. She will be sending me the photos in a few days, but she gave me a sneak peak from her camera and they turned out better than what i wpuld have imagined. I would certainly use Alyson Marie photography for my future photograph needs.
Joe took photos of my friends and I for my Chicago bachelorette party!! It may have not been his usual style of shoot, but he was SO accommodating of what I wanted. Joe made us laugh the entire time! Not only was the whole experience fun, but now I have pictures to remind me of such a great event in my life!! Joe is a great photographer and an even better person! 5 stars from me!!
Jeff was so great to work with - made everything very easy and was very quick to turn around images from our corporate event on that Saturday and provided the images to me the following Monday for my recap. Very responsive and great quality photos!
Great pictures of a great moment in our life. She was very professional and has a great eye and perspective to capture the very best of the moment. Thanks for your great work !
I had planned to give my wife a surprise 65th birthday party. Every detail was resolved except I didn't have a photographer. Since this was my first big event that I planned on my own without my wife's assistance,it had to be perfect. The event was a great success ,she was surprised. The photographer I chose was Lowell Essex. From the first time I met Lowell I felt at ease. He made the task effortless for me. I had many of my friends that have events and recommended their photographers. However I settled on Lowell. What a great choice. Not only was he on time for all the precious once in a lifetime photos ,he mingled with all the guest with such professionalism ,that I didn't have to request a photo shot ,he knew exactly what to do. I had the perfect surprise party for the most precious gift God has blessed me with, my loving wife CIA. Thank you Lowell , I have recommended your service to all our friends. The service was outstanding!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Elzie Banks
We recently did our family photography with Vita and had a very positive experience. Vita took the time to understand our requirements and gave really good suggestions and ideas. In fact, of all the photographers we talked to, Vita was the only one who talked about the comfort of our 4 month old baby in the photography session. The photography session was very relaxed and Vita connected well with the family, which really helped. The final pictures look great and I would definitely work with Vita again.
Chris was awesome!! We felt very comfortable with him and his directions and he wasn't afraid to speak up and give people advice to have them look their best. We received lots of compliments from family and friends in our wedding party for his professionalism and overall ability to get everyone moving and in the shots... Not always easy with a large family and 20 people in the wedding party! My sister (who has stood up in A LOT of weddings) said he was by far the best photographer she had worked with! We would definitely recommend him to friends and family in the future! Please tell him we said thank you again for capturing our special day.
Emily goes above and beyond to get the best possible images for her clients. I've used her services several times for my theatre productions and I have never been disappointed. She has a keen eye for great shots and high standards for all of her work, including retouching. Her images are always true to life and are very successful in capturing the moment, the mood, the atmosphere, and the energy. She is an outstanding photographer and I am never not impressed with her work.
I recently had the privilege to experience a boudoir session done by Erica Velasco. Before going into the shoot I had by doubts and was extremely nervous about looking silly or foolish in my attempts to look sexy during the shoot. As soon as I got to the shoot with Erica, she instantly made me feel comfortable and like a natural with how easily she guided me through the shoot. I was confident that I was going to like some of the pictures she took, but it wasn't until I received the virtual photos of the session that I realized what an amazing photographer she was. Erica guided me through a phenomenal shoot and I couldn't have been happier with the turnout on the photos. If I ever do a boudoir shoot again it will definitely be with Erica.
