I've had headshots done in my past with not so great photographers so when I was looking of a new photographer I was feeling kinda worried about who to chose but I am beyond thankful my friend recommended Mike Sansone Photography to me! Such an unforgettable experience. Mike is very good at what he does and makes you feel so comfortable/ confident behind the camera! Needless to say if you need new headshots done I highly recommend Mike!!

Working with Ryan was a pleasure and I couldn't be happier with the photos he took. Choosing a wedding photographer can seem like a daunting task and I'm glad I found Ryan. Him and his assistant were helpful and creative when taking the pre-wedding photos with just my groom and me, and at the ceremony and reception they were attentive and present to capture every moment. Ryan made the picture-taking process fun, as well, and instead of feeling stiff and awkward with cameras pointed at us my groom and I were at ease and enjoying ourselves. Can't recommend him enough!

I occasionally hire photographers to shoot projects where I am not present, and this was one of those instances. A problem I've encountered in the past is getting shots that are different, or not inclusive, of the directions I provided. Not so with Michael! He showed up on time, shot everything I asked for, turned the images around quickly, and delivered high quality work. He has a great eye and excellent technical ability. I would definitely hire him again for any project in his area.

3Eagles Aerials Imagery really went above and beyond to provide quality service. Arber was very easy to work with as there was no issues with scheduling, he was on time, and he provided great photos. He was receptive to any additional edits I requested and even provided option for video- which was completely unexpected and very greatly appreciated. I highly suggest using 3Eagles Aerials and Imagery for your future photography projects. They have been the most pleasant photography company I've worked with. I will definitely be using again for future projects.

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 hired Mike to cover a conference and he was great. Professional, courteous and unobtrusive, all the things that you want in a photographer. He got lots of great shots. I would (and will) use him again in a heartbeat when back in the Chicago area.

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.

If you're like me, then you heavily base purchasing goods and services on reviews. I take feedback from others very seriously, so if you do as well but don't have time to read my full review just know - the WS Photography team were my FAVORITE vendor of my entire wedding and you just need to hire them now! If you do have time to read my full review, read on for more details. When I first found WS photography, I couldn't believe that such an amazing photographer was A. available for my wedding date and B. such an affordable price. I was in such disbelief that I showed their work to two of my friends who are professional photographers and graphic designers and they reassured me that WS was an excellent choice and had stellar portfolios. From our initial talks, I learned that Ana and Milan had only been in Chicago for a short time but have been shooting weddings around the world for years. Ana was so accommodating during our first talk and even sent over a mock timeline to help me with my decision making. After I hired them the communication was still amazing and we settled on a timeline that worked for all of us since my husband and I were doing a first look and shooting all the photos beforehand. Ana even helped me talk through saving time and money by letting Milan scout out places to take cool photos outside the venue instead of trying to get everyone on a shuttle to go downtown. The day of the Wedding, WS did not disappoint. They were on time and friendly from the beginning and got straight to work. They gave great direction and made everyone in our bridal party feel so comfortable. When we didn't know how to pose or what to do, they gave us direction and sometimes even moved us into the ideal places we needed to be! I think WS will be one of the busiest photographers in Chicago very quickly so do yourself a favor and get on their calendar NOW! The work and service are unmatched and you'll be extremely happy to have them capture your big day!

I hired Visionised for a private event. They not only take professional photos, but also shoot high quality videos that tell stories. High end gear, drones and ability to understand client needs, make those talented individuals unique. Highly recommended.

If you want a photographer who is going to do more than just take pictures Jesus Gonzalez is the person for you because he is far more than a photographer. He is an artist who has the vision to see and capture colors, lighting and energies in any scene he is photographing. His focus and priority is creating uniquely beautiful photographs for his clients either digitally, on photographic paper or even on framed canvas. HIs work comes alive through its colors and features that are enhanced in mesmerizing ways. I have seen some of his work and found it to have an unbelievable 3-dimensional effect that made me feel like I was right there in the scene. If you want ordinary pictures those photographers are a dime a dozen. But if you want quality artistic memories of your special events Jesus is the photographer you can trust to do that for you! He is worth every penny and much, much more.

I found Carrie on thumbtack and she was professional yet so much fun to work with! My 3 mo old was stunned by the big camera & would not smile. Carrie pulled out all the stops to try to coax a smile from him & get a couple. Her artistic eye & creative positioning were much appreciated as I am an artist myself. I felt she listened to my input & took it into account. She was a pleasure to work with & I would highly recommend her. Plus her pricing was very reasonable. So many photographers charge way too much for digital photos and that's why I did not go with them. Plus she came to my house! I can honestly say it was a fun and stress free experience thanks to her!!

    Hi, We are a large siding and windows manufacturer looking for a flexible photographer or set of photographers to help us build our base of photo assets. We need this person or persons to be flexible, capable of shooting without a marketing person on hand, and generally work with us to achieve a vision for the photography. Windows and siding is static and photos can be incredibly boring; we're looking for photography that has some dimension, finds unique ways of seeing the mundane, and that can provide a little differentiation for both product categories - separate or together.

    Hello - I am leading the efforts to help re-brand a company called Peak6 based here in Chicago, where I am working directly with the CMO of the company. By taking a deep dive on photographers I landed on your work and really appreciate your work. I would be interested to see if you are even available for the month of February... Backgroud PEAK6 in Chicago is planning a corporate-wide, brand redesign initiative. As part of that rebranding, photography will play a key role in establishing a “visual vocabulary†within the new brand identity system. We are looking to create highly compelling, visually impactful, and differentiated photography that will visually convey (visual vocabulary) core aspects of our brand. We want the photography to stand out and embody the brand. Choosing a photography partner: We are looking for someone who is eager to partner with us, and actively participate in our brand redesign effort. Someone who will is willing to get immersed in the brand, and help bring the brand to life through photography. As part of our selection criterion, we would like you to come in and take test shots. You’ll have the ability to walk through to get a sense of the various businesses, the space, and the overall vibe. The test shots will be a good “proof of concept†to see how your style and your vision comes through in the photography. We want to understand how your design aesthetic, and overall design sensibility, will translate. We also want to see if we are able to achieve the desired concept and truly bring the brand to life in the photography: • translate brand vision, and concept through your work • ensure relationship is good • feel it can be achieved • helps us to see how stuff lands • bring concept to life, with your expertise While this initial scope is specific to our website redesign, our intention is broader. We are looking to develop an ongoing relationship with a photographer who fully embraces our brand, and would be someone we can hire in the future, on a broad range of ongoing firm efforts. What we’re looking for We’re looking for photography that will be ownable, and uniquely PEAK6. Photography that will create a “visual vocabulary†for the brand—photos that will stand on their own and visually represent key aspects of the brand. For our website, the concept is to let the photography bring the energy and color. The neutral design of the site itself will act as a frame for the photography, allowing for the vividness, energy, and pops of color of the photography to create visual punch.This concept can be applied to the five zones of imagery we’ve identified below as key needs for our visual vocabulary using unique perspectives, vibrant color and light, and creative means to bring energy to the photos. Ultimately, we’re looking for an artistic approach to create a photography style that is undeniably us—photograph that is art. 5-Zones 1-Architectural photos highlighting the unique PEAK6 offices, as well as the interior and exterior of the Chicago Board of Trade building. We are looking for shots with intriguing and unusual perspectives, and creative uses of lenses, distortion, panorama, and lighting. The focus here is more on the space and architecture, less on people. 2. Artistic and abstract images made from architectural detail of the office space, patterns and textures, people, and objects. We are looking for shots with creative use of light, blur, lens flare, unusual perspective, creative depth of field, and shots that turn mundane objects into intriguing images. 3. Narrative shots people, space, and activities within PEAK6 offices and in and around the Chicago Board of Trade. This includes wide shots, mid-rand, and close-ups. We are looking for creative use of reflection, perspective, framing, motion blur, and lighting. Shots of meetings or collaboration should feel as if the viewer is within the group rather than looking in from outside. 4. Bio photos of leadership team that communicate personality, vitality, and activity. These will feature multiple photos of the person in their working environment. Photos will be selected from the same sequence shot from the same perspective, but in different poses. 5. Still lives from within the PEAK6 offices capturing interesting objects, mundane objects made intriguing through lighting and depth of field, unique perspectives, and objects forming patterns. I attached a rough direction baed PDF as well as a few snap shots of our current space. I look forward to your response
