Isabel is one of the most creative photographers I have ever met. She always makes me feel comfortable & helps me with my poses, make up, hair & accessories.
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 :)
JZ Studio captured the photos for my wedding. They arrived early on my special day and dressed very professional, I was impressed. They use excellent photography equipment and have a great flash set up in order to avoid shadows or darkness on the face. Not many photographers can get bright, vivid photos of my husband because of his very dark skin tone but JZ Studio did a perfect job achieving the photos I have always wanted to see! All the pictures turned out very crisp and clear. The color is perfect. Philip was very patient with my active 6 year old son. JZ Studio edited the photos wonderfully to enhance the natural beauty of the photo not to change it out of its original character. The turn around time between the photo shoot and receiving the photo is short. I am so very happy that we choose JZ Studio to capture our wedding ceremony because we will now be able to have our memories for a lifetime and share them with all our friends and family. Their photography is something I'm proud to hang on the walls in my home. I highly recommend JZ Studio for any photography needs that you have. I couldn't be more pleased with them.
I couldn't have asked for a better photographer! Kimia is very professional yet she feels like a very good friend! She will always update you through email/text and I always get a reply from her right away! She took my pictures in downtown Chicago and she picked out beautiful locations to take the photos. I had so much fun with her and I would 100% recommend everyone to hire Kimia!! Not only does she focus on detail, she is also very knowledgable about photography and she knows how to get the perfect natural lighting/angle in every picture. She made me feel comfortable and it was easy to express myself! All the pictures turned out amazing and I have never been more satisfied in the results! Her pricing is also very reasonable compared to other photographers in the area who charge almost double! She is perfect for portraits, weddings, family photoshoots, senior portraits, headshots, etc...! Her work is absolutely amazing and I will definitely be working with her again in the future! Thank you Kimia for a wonderful experience!
Luz was great! My husband and I did photos celebrating our first year anniversary/Christmas. She kept great communication with me up until the shoot. She worked with me and was always flexible. Its always nerve-wracking meeting someone you've never met in person or never worked with before, but all our nerves melted away when we met her. She has a warm personality that is inviting and makes you feel very comfortable. She knows how to pose you and has a good eye for spots in your location. She has a great price, and she doesn't water mark your photos like most other photographers in Chicago. I certainly recommend her for anyone considering her as a photographer, and I will definitely use her again for any future photos I need! Thanks Luz!
Michele came to our home to take newborn photos of our daughter. She was so pleasant to work with, super patient with our baby, and our pictures turned out great. Michele actually stayed longer than she had originally anticipated because she wanted to make sure to get all of the pictures I had in mind. It was evident that Michele takes pride in what she does and I’m very happy we chose her to capture such sweet images of our baby girl.
Vic Melecio, What a wonderful photographer he captured our Wedding Day with so many beautiful photos and a bonus slideshow super nice. Vic captured all the little details and every special moment that made these photos great memories to last a lifetime. Vic was on time and stayed a little longer to get those extra special moments captured. I am so thankful and glad I choose Vic. His photos and quality are Great!! We felt like Vic was part of our wedding party with his sweet humble personality. I would recommend him to anyone for Wedding Photography. The photos he captured brings us back to our special day. Thank you Vic Melecio for capturing such Wonderful and Beautiful pictures of our Wedding Day... Alicia & Pete 4-11-15
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!
Wonderful, sweet photographer who made me feel comfortable and pictures came out great!
There are no words to describe Andy Haug... He was the most amazing photographer I have ever worked with for both our engagement photo shoot and our wedding day. He would not sit or eat or breathe until he had the perfect picture and stayed longer than he needed to even getting his nice pants full of mud to position himself in the best place for the perfect photo. He captured so many amazing moments and had the best energy and attitude that only made our day even happier if that was even possible. I haven't even seen our final photos but I already know he did the most outstanding job. I will be using Andy every time for all our future events as Scott and I grow throughout the years because he is just that amazing. He gave amazing direction and made me look beautiful at every angle. I would recommend him to my closest friends and family.
I am close to 60 years old and plus size. I wanted to surprise, (more like shock), my husband for our 37th anniversary with boudoir photos. I have never been photogenic, but I was hoping I could find someone that could make me look good, just this once. I searched for weeks on line, and finally found Linda. She responded promptly to my emails. We spoke on the phone. She was so pleasant, reassuring, and professional. And her prove for the shoot was so affordable. When I went to my photo shoot, the art studio and surroundings were beautiful, and comfortable. It was fun relaxing while the cosmetologist did my hair and makeup. Linda was sweet and professional during the shoot. She had so many poses and tricks to make me look great! Being older, and on disability, I was slow in changing positions and outfits. But she was so patient with me. When I saw the proofs, I was so pleasantly surprised how pretty I looked! She is a miracle worker! I can't wait for my anniversary to present this gift to my husband. I can recommend Linda very highly. You won't be disappointed. My daughter will be getting married soon. I already recommended Linda to be her photographer.
Very nice guy, very good photographer.
I have worked with Blair many times and she is an extremely detail oriented and super creative individual. The work she has done for me has been exceptional and she has a very good reputation as a professional photographer in our area. I highly recommend her services!!
One of the top photographers in the country.
I highly recommend Monroe Street Photography to capture your memories and for all your photography needs. Ashley is a great photographer. She went above and beyond to make the photography session fun and comfortable, and the photos turned out amazing!
Laurie is not just a good photographer but nice person too. She made everyone in family comfortable during shoot and her ideas and props are nice too. It is nice to work with her and I'll probably hire her again for family photoshoots.
Words cannot describe Alyson’s work. When my fiancé and I were looking to take our engagement photos, we wanted to find someone who’s photography was natural. We did not want our photos to have filters and exaggerated edits. From the very beginning, when I started talking with Alyson, I could tell that she loved what she does. She is not a photographer who just wants “to get the job done”. She will go an extra mile to genuinely get to know you, and make sure that you are satisfied. Alyson answered all of our questions, and on the day of our session, came prepared with ideas, but at the same time, gave us the freedom to just be ourselves. Alyson made us feel very comfortable. That same day of the photoshoot, Alyson already had some of our photos ready. She gave us a sneak peak that kept us at the edge of our seats. When we reviewed our photos, they were just what we had wished for. After the photoshoot, we kept in communication with Alyson to make a few special requests. Alyson responded to our request in a very pleasing way. Not only is Alyson talented and profesional, she is also very sweet and fun.
Fiona is an amazing photographer! She is so sweet and professional. Her communication is great. She always kept in touch and responded to all of my questions immediately. My fiance and I felt so comfortable with her. We are so happy we found her for our engagement party. We had a hard time finding a local photographer since some photographers weren't following up with us after they told us they were available! Fiona was a blessing! :)
I hired Jonathon as my Wedding Photographer which is next July, but we did a Family photoshoot with him this April and the pictures turned out beautiful!!!! I am beyond happy with the results and he is also very professional and sweet! I highly recommend working with Jonathon, he puts a lot of thought and effort into his work. I can't wait for him to shoot my wedding!
I had never heard of Thumbtack prior to planning my wedding. I requested quotes from several photographers from the website. We hired Derek for our wedding July 1, 2017. From our first meeting to the final photographs we viewed, his work, thoroughness, attention to detail and creativity is amazing! Derek is worth every penny if you are trying to capture a special day or event. We have six adult children and each one of them were beyond happy with the photographs taken. I spoke with other photographers prior to meeting Derek. No one comes close to having been prepared like Derek was for our first meeting. I feel so fortunate that we have the most incredible memories thanks to Derek Katana.
I am very please with the photograhy and photo booth services we received for my daughter's sweet 16 party. The party would not have been the same without them. The photo booth was a hit and the pictures are great! We really enjoyed having you at the party. Thanks so much for being there on her big day!
