I am so happy that my search for an experienced and affordable photographer for our son's wedding led us to Isabel Souza. When I viewed her profile on Thumbtack, I immediately knew she was the photographer of choice after viewing 5-6 other profiles as well. From the first meeting at her studio to the final moments of photographing Steve and Ka Yu's wedding and reception, Isabel was amazing! She has a calm, quiet and very patient demeanor while endeavoring to get the most from the posers. Her style is different from the normal "stock" poses and photos you get from other wedding photographers. She is very creative and as an eye in taking photos that "say" what she sees when looking through the lens. She captures the very thoughts of the ones she is photographing. Just several days after the wedding Isabel began posting wedding photos in small batches and they were absolutely beautiful! Isabel provided us with a wonderful montage of photos of Steve and Ka Yu's wedding day that will be forever cherished. Isabel is not only an excellent photographer but she is a true artist and it was a genuine pleasure to have met her and worked with her. If you are looking for something different in your photos, I highly recommend Isabel Souza.......she will not disappoint you!!
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 :)
We had looked and talked to many photographers before we found Carrie and we love her style which is very delightful, fun and romantic. Carrie is experienced and very creative to capture the beautiful and meaningful moments. We just got the photos from her today and we are impressed by the great job she did. Personally i'm a little bit picky and demanding with the professional photos but Carrie did win me. We really appreciate her help and would love to recommend people to this modern delightful photograph style.
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.
Zachera was wonderful to work with! She was easy to communicate with before our session and perfectly understood my photography needs. The idea of getting headshots was a reluctant necessity to me, but Zachera made the whole process smooth and enjoyable, from the beautiful make up (so multi-talented) to her creative use of my limited space. She is extremely personable and professional. And, the finished products are amazing!
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!!!!
Mike has a great way with people, putting them at ease to get excellent results. We appreciate his flexibility and desire to get shots that people can truly be proud of. I've met many headshot photographers over the years, and I consider Mike to be among the best of them.
Nikki is an amazing photographer! She responded to my request for an elopement photographer quickly. On the scheduled date for the session with Nikki, my husband and I were encountering so many problems that we were running extremely late but Nikki was VERY accommodating and understanding and had no problem letting us reschedule. And the quality of her work is amazing. I would highly recommend Nikki to anyone I know.
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've had the pleasure of working with Abbey on several occasions. Most recently, she took photos of my impromptu civil wedding. She met my partner and I at city hall equipped with two bouquets of roses and ready to shoot. She captured the emotion of the moment despite the mundane setting and made a trip to the courthouse feel like a beautifully orchestrated wedding ceremony. If you're looking for a pro photographer with outstanding customer service, look no further; Abbey is the professional for you!
We took the photo shoot outdoors in Millennium Park. Kristine is a very creative and talented photographer. She will make sure that you look your absolute best. She will guide you through the poses that will make you look great.
Great photographer. Would highly recommend to others

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!
Konrad couldn't have been more engaging and wanted to ensure he captured the day and met our expectations. He had great suggestions for team photos and backgrounds based on lighting and effects desired. Just a great experience overall and the photos turned out beautifully.
Michael was incredible to work with I highly suggest to anyone that needs a photographer in the area. He was creative in his solutions to problems that arose and very prompt with his deliverables.
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!
What an incredible girl and talented photographer. I highly recommend her for any job (big or small), our memories will last a lifetime thanks to Lauren!
Dakota was prompt with getting us our “sneak peak” photo’s from our event. The ones we’ve received are such great quality pictures. He was on time and less expensive than other photographers I looked at. We had 430+ people at our event and he was able to handle it without a problem! Thanks Dakota!
