    Christina C.

    Zachera's been nothing but the best from beginning to the end of our engagement photo session! I cannot recommend a better professional photographer. She's the bright and easy-going energy booster you need to get you out of that awkward zone if you're not used to getting photos taken. I absolutely loved her photos of us and our lovely puppy. Hope you choose her for your photo shoot!

    Emily was AWESOME!! She connected with our two daughters, aged 5 & 3, instantly and caught their candid photos at our favorite park. She had a great since of humor and did not rush the photo shoot, which is so important with kids. I highly recommend her for capturing your family momets!

  4. #4 Bourelle Photography

    (53 reviews)

    Tom L.

    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.

    (57 reviews)

    Chris V.

    Kathy understood how to deal with two very energetic little boys, one with special needs. She was able to capture their energy and happiness. She did amazing things with Photoshop and gave me a complete family picture including "shadow children " images of my two children that passed away in infancy. Everyone who sees the pictures Kathy has done is amazed. Thank you so much Kathy!! I will definitely call you next year for the boys 7th birthday pictures!

    Carmen F.

    My fiance and I found Mike on Thumbtack when looking for someone to take our engagement pictures, and we have nothing but good things to say about him! He was very responsive, quick and flexible. Whatever we needed/wanted, he made it work. He was easy to work with and made our session with him comfortable and fun! We are so happy with the way our pictures turned out, and how quickly we received them afterwards. I will recommend Mike to anyone and use him in the future.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Susie Trcka Photography

(2 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I enjoy every aspect of my life, whether it's moving across the country alone or running in a marathon. Even though I'm a terrible runner, I have always been drawn to challenges. I thrive in new environments with new people, and in that moment, I'm engulfed and always committed to the very end. Photography is no different to me. I'm committed to creating a beautiful final product, 100% present, and love to take on any challenge and see the ever-so-slight switch of someone's nervous and uncomfortable smile turn into a genuine laugh and spark of inspiration.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I have been working in the photography industry for over 10 years. I began my freshman year of college founding a film and photography society club, which solidified my passion for beautiful and engaging content. After following the track of the 9-5 job for a few years, I realized that I wanted to control my own future and goals. I love people and highly value my work ethic. Now, I am my own boss and feel that I can conduct my business in a caring, communicative, and fun way! It's scary going out on a limb alone, but I'm having a blast!

    Melissa was an amazing photographer to work with! She met us at Chicago Cultural Center and started taking photos right away! She guided us on poses, as well as, letting us pick. We walked all over the Cultural Center and took pictures in every available room, she didn't mind going the extra mile to get that perfect shot. We really love how our pictures turned out and would definitely recommend her to family and friends. Not only that, we will without a doubt love to work with her again! Thank you Melissa!

    Steve expressed tremendous patients in working with our 4 children. He made the experience enjoyable and everyone was happy the entire shoot, a serious accomplishment! The photos are amazing, we can't wait to share them with our friends and family! So pleased with our decision to work with Steve. He worked very hard to get our 18 month old in some very cute shots even while she wandered around pretty much the entire time. The family photos Steve took are beautiful, vibrant colors and 6 beautiful smiles. The individual photos are so special, they capture the personality of each of our children and he provided us with so many options I have no idea how I am going to choose, they are all wonderful. We are so impressed, even before the photo shoot, Steve checked out locations to make sure we would be happy with the colors and features of our outdoor background. I think Steve has a sincere passion for capturing memories and providing a photography service that is unique, beautiful, and worry free.
