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!

We hired Chicago Portraits for our wedding and we are so happy that we did! They were very responsive to our needs for multiple events and communicated with us every step of the way. We had Bharani as our photographer, who was eager to understand our vision. We first had a phone conversation to see if Chicago Portraits would fit our needs and once we decided to move forward, Bharani made himself available to meet in person prior to any photo shoot to go over the details. He was very flexible and accommodating to our schedules. Also, we aren't the most comfortable couple in front of the camera, but the photographers put us at ease and even offered suggestions for poses. They were very patient to capture the best photos possible. We're extremely pleased with the results. We intend to hire them again for future events and would highly recommend them to anyone else!

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.

I had Rafay do the photography for my niece's birthday. He was incredibly kind and friendly. I didn't have to mention what to take pictures of, which was really nice. For the cake cutting ceremony, Rafay stayed close enough to take his shots but blended into the background so our guests were not bothered. Everything went smoothly and I was very happy with the outcome. The quality of the photos were excellent and they were given to us in a timely manner. I was very pleased with Rafay and I will definitely be a customer again in the future.

This photographer was everything a client could ask for. I hosted a fashion show and hired Love Signatures as one of my photographers. He was there before the time I requested him to be there. He was very professional and thorough in the photos he took of the event. He got behind the scenes as well as photos of the whole show. I would definitely recommend and hire him again!! He's exceptional!!!

Brigette is such a talented photographer!!! I feel so lucky that we were able to work with her for our maternity photos, I have never seen better photos of myself with such beautiful color and light! Her unique vision and passion captured my love for my growing baby bump in a style that reflected me and my husband so well. The location she suggested was a dream and the background in the pictures is seriously breath taking. I am usually pretty shy around the camera but felt so comfortable with her, she has a really relaxing energy which made it really easy to be myself and have fun! I will cherish my maternity photos taken by Brigette for the rest of my life and look forward to her photographing my my son when he is born in a few months!
