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 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.
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.
Kimia was absolutely perfect. She was patient, observant, friendly, respectful and just all around amazing! She managed to capture every important aspect of my wedding and I could not be happier! Thank you so much Kamia for capturing one of the most important days of my life on camera ! You're a Rockstar!!!!
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.
We were running short on time to find a photographer for our wedding. We found George, he was suggested to us. We could not have asked for a better photographer we had kids there and he was great with the kids very patient with them too. George is very good with the camera he came up with several great ideas on the fly, also managed to capture several vital moments at our courthouse wedding when there was little to no time to do so. If you're looking for a great photographer look no further than George. Thanks again, George!
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 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
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 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!
Grace and talent in one is a rarity in the arts world, but you'll find it with Alexus McLane. Not only does her attitude toward the project and subject make the model so comfortable from the get-go - which, if you've worked in modeling, photography or fashion you know can easily be a battle - but also the work she puts out is polished. She covers a whole spectrum of subjects to shoot and really nails each one! One of those photographers you'll remember and will keep coming back to after the first time.
Used Tom for our wedding upon the recommendation of our photographer. His work was amazing and he was very easy to deal with and his demeanor was always professional. Would highly recommend!
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
Bill is so talented - probably the best photographer I have worked with. He claims photographing events isn't his thing but I don't believe it. He has such an eye for capturing these incredible candid moments - even in a crowd of 4,000 people! He really has a knack for telling a story through his shots it makes my job of marketing them in the future so much easier.
We drove all the way from Columbus OH to Chicago IL and work with him and already mean something.Me and my girlfriend hired Dalibor to do a professional photo shooting for the proposal and we didn't make a mistake.we seriously thinking to work with him again on our wedding.He did the job perfectly,very professional and he has really nice personality.The picture were amazing.I had different experience with different photographers but not many of them artists like Dalibor. Thanks a lot,you have our recommendations ... Filip&Lidija
At the time that I booked Antwan for my engagement shoot he was still fairly new. For someone who was just getting their business started I was surprised with how well the shoot actually went. We were actually running late, our fault not his, but he was very flexible with us and his attitude was marvelous for someone who had late clients. My husband is not a fan of pictures. So he made sure to try his best to make my husband, then fiancé, as comfortable as possible. Even talked about what poses would be the most comfortable and wouldn't make him feel awkward. I also loved that everything was fairly natural. I didn't necessarily feel like our photos were staged and when I saw the finished product they didn't look staged. The only thing I wished could have been done differently were more poses instead of taking many shots in the same spot/pose. Since then I have seen more of his work and have noticed improvement in the amount of poses as well as the variety within each pose. Overall my experience was great. The entire shoot was filled with conversations, laughs, jokes, etc. He is one of the best photographers I have had the pleasure of using. I have experienced a lot of discomfort with photographers before, but none with him. If ever you use him I promise you will be satisfied!
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.
I I have worked with a handful of different photographers and amanda is by far the easiest to work with. She will work with the model on the how to best capture the look or concep, and is open to different ideas. Her eye for lighting and depth has given me some of my favorite pictures to date. If you are questioning whether to work with her or not, I would highly suggest it!!
Starr Images One Photography, Rosa Torres she did my birthday party very professional interact with the people, made them feel comfortable and made them laugh, she good on what she does. She had made me a beautiful photo book of the party awesome! nice personality nice to work with awesome person, I received a flash drive with all the photos she took. thank you
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.
