What can I say about Nicole and Jay! They have become not only our favorite photographers but our new friends. They are so easy and comfortable to work with, we felt like we knew them for years. Every pose, every location produced such an amazing photo. Turn around time and email responses were so super quick! And the photos of our engagement session and wedding day left us breathless--so so amazing and beautiful! Working with The Still Life is the best decision we made for our wedding day :)

Carrie did a fantastic job photographing my grandmother's 90th birthday party! She is professional, personable and talented. She was able to efficiently rangle 40 people including my grandparents and infants for a group photo and do it quick enough not to disrupt the festivities. She mingled well with the family without standing out. She was availble when we needed special photos and discretely photographed the event the rest of the time. My family was very impressed with the quality of the images and Carrie's aesthetic along with her presence at the party. I reccomended Carrie to photograph you family event or portrait for sure.

We hired Emil to photograph our wedding, and he did an absolutely wonderful job. He responded quickly to all of our emails and phone calls, and his contract was clear and fair. He was present to photograph all of the important moments in our wedding (the "first look," the ceremony, speeches, dancing, family photos, one-on-one photos, the works) and he shot both indoors and outside without issue. He was attentive the entire time he was at our wedding, and he made sure to move around the room to capture guests throughout the night. We haven't seen the photos yet, but we're very excited to relive our wedding through the photos, and we'll update the review once we've seen them.

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.

Zachara is OUTSTANDING!! My fiancé hired her (as a surprise!) to photograph the proposal, followed by photoshoot around Grant Park. I was so overwhelmed by the proposal so finding out we had a photographer was also quite a shock, but Zachara immediately put us at ease and made me feel so comfortable. I had never done a photoshoot before and she was great at talking us through the different "poses" whilst making it all so fun! It never felt staged or unnatural, and the photos capture the mood and moment perfectly. She is extremely personable but also professional and clearly is an exceptionally talented photographer. We are in love with all the photos and couldn't be happier. It was a pleasure to work with Zachara and I would recommend her 110%!

Kimia was wonderful! My family photo shoot was very last minute but I contacted Kimia and she was very flexible and accommodating. The photo shoot was fun and she welcomed our input. She is just a delightful young lady and we were very pleased with the finished photos.

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.

I had scheduled a photo session for family and new born portraits at home. Abbey did a great job, she knew how to keep my toddler son busy and at the same time have fun entire photo shoot. Very nice poses with the new born as well. She also was well equipped with lights, backdrops and props. I would definitely recommend her for the amazing work and passion she has for photography Thanks Abbey!! Looking forward to work with you again!

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!

Ronald was great to work with! We are a very busy family and he was very flexible with his time and worked with us to find a great location for our photos. He took phenomenal photographs of our family and we were able to access them within days! You won't go wrong working with Ronald!

Ekaterina was timely, professional, personable, and artistic in her work. We took engagement photos with her after finding her on Thumbtack. I saw the work posted on her website and was wowed at the quality and artistic creativity. We were unsure of good locations and she provided options for us to choose from and a plan B in case of rain. During the photoshoot, we admitted that we were unsure what to do and she guided us comfortably through the entire shoot. She made us feel comfortable enough to be silly and genuine and the photos came out very natural looking. The photos look beautiful (even before editing), and we have already booked her for our wedding. I look forward to booking her for graduation photos for my M. Ed. I would HIGHLY recommend her to all of my family and friends for a photographer of any type of event or occasion.

Mark was an amazing photographer. We booked him for our engagement photos, and we had such a great time with him and are extremely impressed with the photos he has sent us. He had an amazingly fast turnaround time for some sample photos with just a 2 day wait from our shoot. For the rest of the photos it only took him a couple of weeks! His work with lighting was spectacular, and he really made my fiancé and I enjoy the whole experience. We would highly recommend him to anyone wanting any photos taken, whether engagement, wedding, or even just portraits.

This was our first family photo session with our 6 month old. I also had Konrad take professional photos for me. I could not have asked for a better photographer! Konrad was easy to work with from our first call where he asked a lot of great questions, to working through location challenges the day of, to engaging our son so he could get great shots. He brought his assistant who was amazing at suggesting poses and giving guidance. We are so pleased with our images and look forward to having him as our photographer going forward.

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 had an excellent experience with Josh Tortuga. First of all, he was early to the photoshoot. You would not have to worry about the photographer being late to your photoshoot/event. He acted very professional while taking pictures, and was very respectful. The pictures were top notch. They were delivered to me within a day of the pictures being taken. It was impressive on how quickly the photos were delivered. Overall, I would definitely recommend this photographer to other people.

Veera was an amazing photographer, I just received my pictures and they look amazing, my family and I was so impressed with the results. Veera was very professional and super accommodating. He was very understanding when we were running behind schedule, and suggested awesome poses for the wedding party and the family pictures. I am so glad I went with Veera for my big day, and I would definitely recommend him to everyone.
