My husband and I had a great shoot with Nicole. We found The Still Life Photography on Thumbtack. Nicole contacted me right away with a very reasonable quote for our wedding photography. Unfortunately, due to reasons unrelated to The Still Life Photography, we were unable to book for our wedding. However, we decided to go with engagement photography. It was a super cold and windy day, but we did not feel rushed at all. Nicole was efficient and very meticulous in taking some unique shots. We LOVED the way all of our photos turned out. During this whole process, Nicole offered us great customer service, she was friendly, and also very accommodating. When the time comes, we definitely plan to keep her in mind for our pregnancy and baby photoshoots ;-) We highly recommend this service!

Hired VisualEtiquette as our wedding photographer and the engagement session was included in the package. We just received our engagement photos back and could not be more pleased. Emil was able to capture every moment, many un-posed and many posed. He has great ideas that he will share with you, but also encourages you to bring your own style and props if that is the route you want to go. Friends and Family are raving about the photos, saying they are some of the best engagement photos they've ever seen! VisualEtiquette has competitive pricing yet exceptionally better quality compared to some of the very high priced photographers we interviewed while choosing our vendors. Emil is a busy photographer, so it sometimes takes 2-3 days for him to get back to me, but he never fails to answer our questions.

Kathy is great! I needed professional head shots on very short notice and she went out of her way to accommodate my schedule. She has been a professional photographer for a long time and it shows in her work. During the 20 minute shoot she was very friendly, and very helpful in telling me what to do, how to position myself, etc in order to get the best shots. She even edited and emailed the pictures that night! If you're reading this you probably already know she also has the most competitive price for a professional photographer in the area. Thanks again Kathy!

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.

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.

I have to say that I interviewed a lot of photographers for my wedding and hands down WS photography was my pick. They really made an effort to figure out what I wanted to see in my photos and gave me great advice/recommendations for the shoot. Milan is very creative and helped me to envision exactly what I was looking for. My fiancé and I booked them right away and set up the date for our engagement shoot. Our engagement shoot was a ton of fun and it was nice to have a photographer who was not only talented, but had a fun and positive attitude the entire shoot. It is important I feel for the photographer one chooses to not only be talented in photography, but also a lot of fun to be around since they are sharing your wedding day with. When I got the photos back from our engagement shoot I could not believe how beautiful and cool the pics came out. The day of our wedding Milan and his assistant showed up on time and ready to have fun. The entire day was a blast and I couldn't have asked for a better wedding. Our photos came out even better then I ever thought wedding photos could look and once I posted them on Facebook my friends/family went crazy over the photos. The photos literally looked like they had been pulled out of a magazine. Milan exceeded my expectations and I am so happy that he was there on my wedding day to capture our special moment.

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!

Vic was one of our favorite vendors, if not our best for our wedding. This review is long overdue (almost a year) but I just had to leave a review. He is tremendously easy to work with, he's tireless in his work and most importantly got the job done. I asked him for the raw files on a usb drive that I provided and he was perfectly fine with that too. Some studios charge a fortune just for that service! He provides tremendous value and does the work of 2 to 3 people. He's very flexible in his dealings and will work with you until you are satisfied. Our wedding photographer was admittedly a bit bossy but Vic was able to work around her and avoided any wedding day drama that could ruined the day. I'll recommend him anytime someone asks for suggestions on a videographer. A lot of the videographers on thumbtack didn't match the type of style we were looking for and to be honest they were just too cheesy or overly produced. Think star wipe/lens flare unnecessary effects but Vic's style suited us. Check out his sample videos. Really, look no further than Vic to handle your video/ photo needs. On top of that, he's a really nice guy.

Mark was a JOY to work with. Before we even arrived for the photo session, Mark was scouting the property for the perfect spots to shoot our engagement photos. He was fun and professional. I loved his creative ideas and that he was so open to some of my picture requests. We have a newborn, and he was patient and kind when incorporating her into our photos. These are pictures that I will cherish for the rest of my life! Mark - you are officially my go-to photographer!

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!

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!

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!

Having our engagement photos done with Mathias Johnson was one of the best decisions we've made since we started planning our wedding. He was incredibly responsive from the start, and very flexible! We almost decided to reschedule the initial date we had picked due to very high winds that evening in Chicago, but Matt had gotten to the location about an hour and a half early to scope out a plan for the shoot and it ended up being gorgeous. We had sent him some examples of ideas we had liked, and his photos were leaps and bounds BETTER than the inspiration we saw! He was also very affordable, and extremely prompt--he initially estimated a few days between the shoot and having some edited images back, but he sent us a little preview the SAME evening as the shoot. We enjoyed just talking to him and shooting the breeze--he made us feel really comfortable and the whole time we spent with him was super laid back. It's almost too bad we're getting married in North Carolina or else we'd have him do the wedding in a heartbeat!
