Karolina photographed our daughter's 1st birthday party. She was professional and punctual, and captured the moments of our party perfectly. The photos were very candid and 'in the moment', as we had requested. She also took some family photos before the event that were lovely. Would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an excellent event photographer!

Nicole was a very accommodating and fun photographer to work with. Having two photographers was a treat because they were able to take photos from different perspectives of the same moments. They anticipated the moments you want to cherish and caught them with the click of a button. We were very pleased with their pricing as well as their service. I thought they did an incredible job, and I can't emphasize enough how accommodating and low stress they were to work with. They were very insightful and gave us photos that are all over my home. When I look at them, I don't just see a photo, I feel the emotions I had in that moment and it makes me happy.

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.

Visual Ettiquette's lead photographer, Emil, is an AMAZING photographer and choosing to work with him was one of the best decisions about our wedding!!! My wife and I hired Emil to shoot our photos for our recent wedding in Downtown Chicago. First off, Emil is hands down a great guy who talked with us over the phone before the wedding discussing all the details of our wedding day and offered up some great suggestions for where to shoot around the city. On the day of the wedding he promptly arrived on time, even with all of the crazy Chicago traffic that morning. His warm heart, charming personality, and artistic eye made shooting with him super fun and relaxed. Shooting with him was actually one of the highlights of our day when we went around Chicago getting photographed in the snow around Grant Park and the Planetarium. I can still remember Emil running around (yes actually running) in order to find all the artistic angles to take our photos. He even stood on frozen Lake Michigan to get us the best shots of what ended up looking like photos the wedding photos of our dreams. Oh yeah and for all this, he is 1/4 the price we were quoted by other artistic photographers. Emil gets my wife and I's highest recommendation!!! If you want top notch artistic wedding photography that is still affordable, Emil is your guy! I never knew my wife could be such a supermodel until Emil photographed her!

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 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!

Both Mile and Irena were wonderful to work with....The moment I contacted them for a quote they were responsive and professional. Our family photo shoot not only went smoothly but the pictures were amazing! They're so creative with their unique staging ideas and make you feel so comfortable. Our boys started to get antsy and they were so patient and even entertained them while making sure we got all our shots. They had our photos ready for us very quickly! We also rented one of their photo booths for our son's birthday and brother's wedding. All the guests loved it! Such s fun touch. I would highly recommend using halo photography for photos and all event needs. They're the best!!!

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!

Ashley did a superb job with our family photos as well as my maternity photos, I could not have asked for a better photographer! She was on time, extremely pleasant to talk to and work with, and even prepared with toys and books to entertain my toddler as well as signs for her to hold! I just saw the photos and I am beyond pleased, it looks like they were taken in a fairy tale! Gorgeous, sparkling family moments and so many of them with a candid feel. My family and I will all treasure these forever. Thank you so so much, Ashley! Will see you next year for round 2 for sure ;)

Angie is a wonderful photographer who is always willing to learn more. She is quite naturally talented but very intelligent and skilled in her field, while still being engaging with her clients. We can't get enough of her bubbly personality that gives precise directions and professional and timely results.

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!

Dave helped me out and grabbed some amazing football shots in some pretty bad conditions. His "pay it forward" attitude will stay with me as I attend more of these sporting events with my family. I will definitely keep his contact info handy for my family and others.
