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.

Jack was an absolute pleasure to work with. Although it was only our first time working together, he made me feel at ease from the very start. He is incredibly thoughtful, informative and has fantastic insight and pointers for improving overall posing and expression. Additionally, his turnaround time for edited photos was quick and as promised, which can often be an issue with photographers. I am looking forward to working with him again in the future. I would highly recommend him for portraiture, street style shoots and events.

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!!!

We decided late that we wanted a photographer for our annual holiday party. Lino offered to arrive early to set up the backdrop and then photograph during a specified block of time. The pics were so much fun; exactly what we were looking for!! Thank you!

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 ;)

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!!!

I have mostly dealt in the past with the big multi site photography studios. I needed a job done on short notice and was steered towards Ally T. Photography. It ended up being one of the best decisions I have made in some time. Big studio quality and personal care. The 5 star rating is only because they don’t have 6.

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!
