I chose The Still Life Photography to photograph my wedding ceremony and reception and was so glad I did! It was a pleasure working with Nicole because she was very accommodating and took the time to learn about the various traditions surrounding my Islamic Wedding Ceremony. I sent Nicole a whole folder of photo ideas that I wanted and she made it a priority to make sure I was content with all the shots taken on the day of! She also took it upon herself to incorporate her own artistic style into the photos. I was initially drawn to her and Jay's candid, "captured in the moment" photos on the website and I can't wait to see the final edited photos. I was very impressed with her professionalism and enthusiasm and would definitely recommend The Still Life Photography.

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!

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 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.

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 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!

After meeting with several photographers, she was the ONLY one my wife and i liked. Her professionalism is unlike any other - prompt with responses, super creative and pictures came on time.Geraldine has one of the biggest hearts of anyone I have ever met, and I was absolutely honored to have her play such an important role in my wedding. I can't recommend her enough.

Harry, of Snappybytes, did a wonderful job for our wedding reception photos. He was very professional and he dressed very professional as well. Harry was early, he was humble, and he was focused. He blended in well with our crowd and stayed in the background. Harry was so hardworking! He didn't sit down at all. I really appreciate Harry's flexibility, advice, and direction. Hiring Harry is one of the best investments I ever made because the photos are outstanding. He did a great job with portraits, candid shots, and he captured the scenery very well. I would hire him again because he's talented and his services are a great deal for the price. I highly recommend him for your event and I hope he's available for my next event!

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 had a couples engagement photo shoot and we really enjoyed it, Though the weather wasn't the greatest (Cloudy and freezing cold) yet Sergei has managed to get the best out of it by his talent and experience, and we've got to say also that he really was very friendly and patient with us making it so much fun. We actually recommended Sergei to everybody want to have a great photo shoot and photos. Thank you Sergei for the pictures-they look great! We're really pleased! All the best-and looking forward to getting in touch again when the weather gets warmer to have a sunny photo shoot.

Ryan did professional headshots for me and they turned out great!!! I wanted a daylight portrait with a simple background and thats exactly what he gave me. The quality of the digital images were perfect for both print and web. He was very easy going and professional! After a while I barely noticed him shooting. Before I knew it we were done. He quickly reviewed some images me on the spot. Later that same evening I was able to view an online gallery and download images. Very reasonable price for quality!
