  3. #3 Carrie Leah Photography

    (64 reviews)

    Jennifer B.

    Carrie was very quick to respond to my questions through Thumbtack, and then incredibly quick to schedule the photography shoot - only two days later! She has a very artistic eye, and was willing to drive me to different locations in the city (that she thought of/knew of) to get the best possible setting and light. I came away with a many different options to use, which I was very pleased with. I highly recommend Carrie!

    Mylynh V.

    I had my maternity photoshoot recently with Emil and he was very professional and artistic. I love how my pictures turned out. I got the photos via dropbox about a week after the photoshoot and had received many compliments on them. Also, Emil was very accomadating with changing date/time if the weather is bad without any additional cost. Just cannot beat that! Great experiences!

  5. #5 La Vita Images

    (46 reviews)

    Christina O.

    From the beginning of our engagement to the wedding, La Vita Images was amazing to work with. They traveled to downtown Chicago for our engagement photos, and used some of our own ideas as well as their own creativity to make the pictures amazing, which we used for our Save the Dates. My husband and I were married 3 weeks ago, and already had a substantial amount of our wedding pictures sent to us so that we were able to show our families at Christmas. They were a pleasure to work with, and I had numerous wedding guests tell me that the photographer took his time, took excellent family photos, but also stopped to ask me if I needed a break, a drink, or if I wanted to keep taking pictures. He came to me numerous times to ask if I wanted more specific pictures, and was nothing short of professional.

  7. #7 Nicolas Grasset Photography

    (40 reviews)

    Libby T.

    Nico was an exceptional photographer for our wedding! He arrived promptly, professionally, and was ready to capture all of the day's moments. My husband and I could not be happier. Unfortunately it rained hard most of our wedding day so we had to do most of our photos inside. However, towards the end of the day the raindrops ceased and we were able to get some stunning photos outdoors. I cannot wait to see how our pictures turned out! I would recommend Nico to anyone!

  10. #10 Shannon Z Photography

    (19 reviews)

    Ashley H.

    I can’t even put into words how much I loved having Shannon Z Photography capture our wedding day. Having moved down to Wisconsin from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, honestly I was really skeptical of hiring a photographer. I went on Thumbtack.com and put a bid in for a photographer. I quickly received a response back from Shannon assuring me she could capture the pictures I wanted at a price I was comfortable with. I looked around for a little bit after getting the bid from Shannon but always came back to her. The pictures on her website were amazing, only worry of mine is if we could have such wonderful pictures. Being an overweight person, I am always critical about what I look like in pictures. Moving on to the wedding day, Shannon came to the church and checked in with my husband. She immediately went to work, capturing all the pictures on my list (it was a long list). I have to say I am so impressed with Shannon not only because of the beautiful pictures she took but also how she went up and beyond. When getting ready she told me the chalkboard for the memorial I wanted wasn’t displayed. I told her where it was located and she ran to get it to put it out. We had flowers for the guys to put on their suits and she put them on for them. During our lunch I was standing in front of a fan when she came over and lifted up my dress a little so air would go under all the layers of my wedding dress. During the whole celebration she asked my husband and I if there were any other picture I wanted to capture. I received a sneak peak of our pictures 4 days after our wedding and couldn’t have been happier. The creativity Shannon used was amazing. She even laid down in the sand at the beach in order to get the angle she wanted. Then a few days after that she had all the photos ready to view! We even received our USB with all pictures before we went on our honeymoon 2 weeks later. With so many photographers’ out there, you will not find a photographer that goes above and beyond like Shannon Z Photography does.

    Drina S.

    We hired Shelby for our 6/13 wedding downtown Chicago, I can't say enough what a pleasure she was to have part of our wedding day! She showed up early, has such a sweet spirit about her and we got our pictures this week. Both my husband and I cried as we saw them reliving the day. Several times we said, wow! How did she get that shot, I didn't even know she was there! She's a true professional and does beautiful work! I'd highly recommend her!
