We hired Steven (Bourelle Photography) for a family photo session and we couldn't be any more pleased. The shoot location was Rollins Savanna, in volatile and continually changing outdoor conditions (wind, challenging lighting, clouds, pedestrian obstructions) Steven took advantage of every possible moment and situation. The way Steven worked with us, his creativity, patience and super-fun personality was so refreshing and it shines-through in his craft (photos). The superior-quality of the final product Steven produced was simply outstanding. The fact that he got two, not so excited, teenage boys to participate and actually smile is a testament to how well he managed the entire shoot. With all that goes into planning and actually taking family photos, it should have been a real chore. To the contrary, it was a first-class experience. We highly recommend Steve and Bourelle 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!

In all the years of hiring photographers for specialty photography / marketing shots of often hard-to-photograph glossy finish grand pianos, Martika has set new standards of excellence and price/value balance. We asked for about 20 final shots, Martika took 289 and delivered a photo gallery that blew us away. We feel she charged just about 25% of the value of her work. "Highly recommended" is an understatement. Thank you, Martika!

Jack was an absolute pleasure to work with. Although it was only our first time working together, he made me feel at ease from the very start. He is incredibly thoughtful, informative and has fantastic insight and pointers for improving overall posing and expression. Additionally, his turnaround time for edited photos was quick and as promised, which can often be an issue with photographers. I am looking forward to working with him again in the future. I would highly recommend him for portraiture, street style shoots and events.

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!

I could not be grateful enough to have found Nikki on Thumbtack! She blew us away with her ability to wrangle all 9 of us for outdoor family portraits. She captured the best photos I've ever seen of my three wild nephews (7, 5, and 3 years old). When we posed for pics she helped us all to be at the right angles and coordinated. The boys were totally at ease with her and we all had a really great time. She is very professional, her edits were tasteful (not overly filtered), her prices are beyond fair, and we now have a large album of beautiful photos that capture our family at it's best. Highly recommend contacting Nikki. I'm booking her again for my other side of the family and will continue to reach out to her in the future. THANK YOU, NIKKI!

Words cannot do the justice of how breathtaking the pictures were! Geraldine was our photographer for my bridal shower and we did a photoshoot before the actual shower. The photos turned out absolutely amazing!! She was there, on time, so excited and just gave us such positive vibes. We truly enjoyed working with her. She let us be ourselves but took absolutely stunning GQ type shots as well. I wish I had known of her before because she is honestly one of the best photographers in Chicago. If you’re looking for one and ran across her page. Look no more! We had at least 10% of the people attending asking us about her name and info because they absolutely loved her work!!

Kristine took headshots for my daughter for an upcoming theater audition at her college. I couldn't have asked for more beautiful or professional photos. She took a variety of poses and expressions in front of real backgrounds and really brought out the personality of my child. Kristine has also been the eighth-grade portrait photographer at my children's school for a number of years. The children look like angels in her pictures. Her portraits of my oldest two children are treasured by my kids. You can't go wrong with Kristine. She is the best!

Robert did a wonderful job with the family portrait. The pictures turned out better than I expected! My only regret is not bringing my dogs with to include them in the picture. Maybe next time!

I am so glad we went with Life on Prints for our wedding photographer. We loved working Tony and Michelle - they were able to get all of the requested family photos, and still got many creative shots. We just got our online gallery and the photos turned out beautiful! Can't wait to see our album and order prints!

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!

Mark was wonderful! Due to our tight schedule, we ended up having our outdoor photo shoot on the coldest day of 2017 in Chicago. With a great sense of humor, easy going personality and adventurous spirit, Mark created a gorgeous set of engagement photos for us at not one but four different locations. He made our visions a reality and has given us incredible photos that we will always cherish! Don't hesitate to hire Retiro Photography for any of your photography needs.

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!

We hired Chicago Portraits for our wedding and we are so happy that we did! They were very responsive to our needs for multiple events and communicated with us every step of the way. We had Bharani as our photographer, who was eager to understand our vision. We first had a phone conversation to see if Chicago Portraits would fit our needs and once we decided to move forward, Bharani made himself available to meet in person prior to any photo shoot to go over the details. He was very flexible and accommodating to our schedules. Also, we aren't the most comfortable couple in front of the camera, but the photographers put us at ease and even offered suggestions for poses. They were very patient to capture the best photos possible. We're extremely pleased with the results. We intend to hire them again for future events and would highly recommend them to anyone else!

We used Portrait of Light photo booth for our wedding on October 21st. They were punctual and very professional! We heard tons of positive and great reviews from our wedding guests. And at the end of the night we received a photo book of all the picture strips taken during the night. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a photo booth for any type of event.

Jim took our engagement and wedding pictures. He took the time to capture everything from the littlest of details to the parade of family shots for us. We took quite a few outdoor photos as well. He was patient with the elements and made sure to maximize nature's backdrop. We had a list of must have shots that he was happy to take but we're also very happy with what he was able to improvise. He was very professional all through the process and the end product turned out great!
