You will NOT be sorry with Karolina Heggaton Photography! Not only is Karolina easy to work with, she is also FUN to work with! She did our engagement photos in November 2015 and made us feel totally comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera. She even brought a few of her very own props for us to borrow (blanket, chark-board sign) without us even asking, so sweet! Every single picture was amazing - in fact that was the only “problem,” that there were TOO many great photos to choose from! You will not be disappointed with Karolina. Professional and gorgeous photos for a steal in pricing, almost too good to be true! We love our photos - Thanks Karolina! :)

My husband and I had a great shoot with Nicole. We found The Still Life Photography on Thumbtack. Nicole contacted me right away with a very reasonable quote for our wedding photography. Unfortunately, due to reasons unrelated to The Still Life Photography, we were unable to book for our wedding. However, we decided to go with engagement photography. It was a super cold and windy day, but we did not feel rushed at all. Nicole was efficient and very meticulous in taking some unique shots. We LOVED the way all of our photos turned out. During this whole process, Nicole offered us great customer service, she was friendly, and also very accommodating. When the time comes, we definitely plan to keep her in mind for our pregnancy and baby photoshoots ;-) We highly recommend this service!

I spent a long time researching wedding photographers in my area and was hit hard by jz studio's work. After having the opportunity to meet, it was clear how their personality and passion matched their talent, these guys are a force! On our big day they were focused, professional and attentive behind the lens and so much fun during all the bits in between. Group shots were super smooth and efficient, then individual shots with my wife were just a blast. Photography was a big part of the day for us and having the talent and personality of Philip and Zack entrusted with that responsibility was a dream.

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.

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.

I hired Jack to shoot candid proposal photos of our engagement and he was awesome. The shots were terrific, were turned around really quickly and were more than I could have hoped for. I highly recommend Jack to shoot your next occasion!

We did our engagement pictures with Nicole Fields Photography in September 2015. She was very professional and well prepared for some poses she wanted us to try. She is a joy to work with and the pictures turned out amazing! Will definitely be using her again for our photography needs.

I needed a professional headshot photo in a short timeframe. Since I never had professional photos done before and had no idea how to find a good professional in order to help me out, I was initially relatively intimidated by the process. Looking up the websites from several photographers, most were only advertising wedding and recreational photography services. Robert put me at ease from the very beginning, showing me some sample headshots he took and explaining me the whole process as well as what I could expect. During all of my interactions with Robert, he has been very professional. Also, it is obvious that he is passionate by what he is doing. He overall did exceed my original expectations, delivering some excellent headshots in a very short timeframe!

After a long search for a photographer and party planner for my wife's birthday, I finally came across halo photography by chance and was I sure glad I did. Throwing any type of event is stressful but Mile was so energetic and his wife Irena was so creative that hiring them really made my life that much easier and our party that much more memorable. From lighting and decor to they're portable photo booth. Every moment and detail was captured and on point. Everyone even left with a photo print in hand. My wife loved her party photos so much that she even booked a maternity shoot with the owner Mile. Can't thank them enough! You guys are rockstars!

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!

Ashely took my engagement pictures for me and I really like them! She has been patient explaining how the light, angle, place working for the photos to us. Also she provided a lot of creative ideas for us to post our guestures. She was really understandable when we had to reschedule the time to do the pictures. I have received so many likes and compliments on my engagement pictures. Many many thanks to Ashley! I'll def recommend her to my friends who have the needs to take engagement/wedding pictures.

We had a couples engagement photo shoot and we really enjoyed it, Though the weather wasn't the greatest (Cloudy and freezing cold) yet Sergei has managed to get the best out of it by his talent and experience, and we've got to say also that he really was very friendly and patient with us making it so much fun. We actually recommended Sergei to everybody want to have a great photo shoot and photos. Thank you Sergei for the pictures-they look great! We're really pleased! All the best-and looking forward to getting in touch again when the weather gets warmer to have a sunny photo shoot.

Jim took our engagement and wedding pictures. He took the time to capture everything from the littlest of details to the parade of family shots for us. We took quite a few outdoor photos as well. He was patient with the elements and made sure to maximize nature's backdrop. We had a list of must have shots that he was happy to take but we're also very happy with what he was able to improvise. He was very professional all through the process and the end product turned out great!

I learn something new every time I work both with and for Maureen. Her passion for beautiful lighting and knowledge of how to produce amazing results in a timely manner are just two of her qualities which separate her from the masses of mediocre photographers. Maureen brings her quick wit and love of working with people to every job, from the booking of the shoot or event to the final delivery of the product. I truly value her deep commitment to continuing education in the field of photography and dedication to getting it right in the camera with no filters necessary.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
