You will NOT be sorry with Karolina Heggaton Photography! Not only is Karolina easy to work with, she is also FUN to work with! She did our engagement photos in November 2015 and made us feel totally comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera. She even brought a few of her very own props for us to borrow (blanket, chark-board sign) without us even asking, so sweet! Every single picture was amazing - in fact that was the only “problem,” that there were TOO many great photos to choose from! You will not be disappointed with Karolina. Professional and gorgeous photos for a steal in pricing, almost too good to be true! We love our photos - Thanks Karolina! :)

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!

I spent a long time researching wedding photographers in my area and was hit hard by jz studio's work. After having the opportunity to meet, it was clear how their personality and passion matched their talent, these guys are a force! On our big day they were focused, professional and attentive behind the lens and so much fun during all the bits in between. Group shots were super smooth and efficient, then individual shots with my wife were just a blast. Photography was a big part of the day for us and having the talent and personality of Philip and Zack entrusted with that responsibility was a dream.

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.

Kimia shot our engagement photos and it was a fantastic experience. We are not great at posing and she got us into position with no problem. She took the time to listen to what we wanted and tweaked our requests so that we needed up with the perfect shots. Kimia was very accommodating and fun to work with. I definitely recommend her services.

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.

We did our engagement pictures with Nicole Fields Photography in September 2015. She was very professional and well prepared for some poses she wanted us to try. She is a joy to work with and the pictures turned out amazing! Will definitely be using her again for our photography needs.

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.

The Maestro Media did an amazing job capturing all the special moments of our wedding day. We could not be happier with their work. Videographer, Mark Condra, was there working right alongside the photographer, capturing every imaginable detail. He worked so well with us and with our other vendors, helping the day go exactly as planned. The final products are videos we cherish and will use in the years to come to relive our wedding day. They gave us a copy of the full ceremony, footage of the toasts & first dances, a surprise shoutout video from friends & family (which we loved watching on our honeymoon) and such a creative, catchy highlight video that truly depicts the vibe of the whole day. Maestro Media was so quick in getting the final products to us. We won't hesitate to highly recommend them to friends and family looking for a talented, professional videographer.

We were visiting Chicago and decided last minute to try to squeeze an engagement photo shoot into our trip. Luckily, Harry responded quickly to our thumbtack post! Harry was very responsive, flexible, and pleasant to work with. He captured some great shots even though we are quite camera shy and got us some edited pictures the day after our shoot! Definitely would recommend

Konrad really did an absolutely amazing job! My fiancee and I are so thrilled with how the pictures turned out and so happy that he was able to capture the moment. He was extremely accommodating as I proposed at a restaurant and he offered to meet there the day beforehand to pick out exactly the right table to sit at for the perfect shot. I would strongly recommend Konrad to anyone else looking for a photographer, engagement photos or not!

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!

I am more that satisfied with the way my graduation photos turned out. I highly recommend them and would absolutely use them again!

He did our engagement photos and they came out amazing. Made it feel so normal and not weird at all. He didn’t have us “pose” we just did our thing and he captured the perfect moments. We got some amazing photos at the end. He also did my bridal shower pictures which also came out fabulous! He was on time like I said very professional if we had any ideas or requests he told us what would work best for those ideas and gave us a ton of options. Would work with him again in the future!
