I am so happy that my search for an experienced and affordable photographer for our son's wedding led us to Isabel Souza. When I viewed her profile on Thumbtack, I immediately knew she was the photographer of choice after viewing 5-6 other profiles as well. From the first meeting at her studio to the final moments of photographing Steve and Ka Yu's wedding and reception, Isabel was amazing! She has a calm, quiet and very patient demeanor while endeavoring to get the most from the posers. Her style is different from the normal "stock" poses and photos you get from other wedding photographers. She is very creative and as an eye in taking photos that "say" what she sees when looking through the lens. She captures the very thoughts of the ones she is photographing. Just several days after the wedding Isabel began posting wedding photos in small batches and they were absolutely beautiful! Isabel provided us with a wonderful montage of photos of Steve and Ka Yu's wedding day that will be forever cherished. Isabel is not only an excellent photographer but she is a true artist and it was a genuine pleasure to have met her and worked with her. If you are looking for something different in your photos, I highly recommend Isabel Souza.......she will not disappoint you!!

Nicole and Jay did an excellent job capturing the important and special moments of my wedding ceremony and reception. It truly was our dream wedding and they took beautiful shots. Every time I look at my pictures I love them even more. Nicole took some artistic shots (in between a picture frame on a table) and some really beautiful shots a lake. Nicole and Jay were very friendly and accommodating to take any pictures we wanted and planned their own pictures as well. Overall, we had a great experience with them and would recommend them for your wedding photographers.

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.

From start to finish Nikki was positive and professional to work with and our wedding photos came out exactly the way we wanted! She took great care in researching beautiful locations in our area, planning for the forecasted rain, and making sure we were comfortable. All of the careful planning shows in the gorgeous photos we received. We could not recommend Nikki more highly if you are looking for a photographer to capture a private/intimate ceremony.

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!

I can't say enough lovely things about All Corporate Video and Photo. Mike Kozuchowski was so fantastic to work with- I was looking for a last minute photographer for an event I was throwing only a few days before the event. Mike was nothing but professional, easy to work with and went above and beyond what was asked of him. I will definitely work with him again in the future, when another project comes up and I highly recommend to anyone that is looking for a photographer and or a videographer. Thanks Mike!

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!

I recently hired Lauren to photograph my engagement. She went above and beyond. Her pictures turned out excellent, but what impressed me more was her professionalism. She truly cared about making sure the experience was perfect and I received everything I needed. I contacted her to make sure she was ready for us to arrive and she had been setup waiting well in advance. I had many moving parts to my proposal and I did not have to worry at all about her doing her job. It was fantastic! She was also proactive and efficient in returning my photos quickly. If you want a photographer who cares about providing a personal experience for her clients then you need to hire Lauren! She will go the extra mile.

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 ;)

Jim was an outstanding photographer. He is very passionate about his work, and he takes wonderful photos. He makes sure every shot is just right. I really could not have picked a better photographer. He adjusts to your personal needs or wants, and he will make sure you are happy with what he is doing. The end results are just beautiful. Words can't even describe how amazing the pictures turn out.

Janice is a very skilled photographer. She took the time to interview me to fully understand my goals and offered wonderful suggestions on how to capture the best professional images for my needs. The session was low key and she created an atmosphere that helped me relax. We found a good creative groove that produced some fantastic photos. Her turn around time for post processing was faster than I expected. I would highly recommend Janice to anyone seeking professional head shots.

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!!!

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
