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.

We hired Emil with Visual Etiquette after interviewing a few photographers for our wedding. We felt at ease with him after our first meeting. He was straight forward and to the point. He wasn’t pushy. He didn’t try to sell you some expensive photo packages that you don’t need. He did an excellent job. He was on time, professional, patient, and truly likes what he does and it shows. He made us comfortable throughout the day and made it easy to get such amazing wedding shots. He showed us how to pose which I like and the pictures came out great. We could have paid hundreds more for the beautiful pictures with someone else. I highly recommend him. Anna H.

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 beyond professional! My now wife and I hired Jack to do our city hall and post city hall wedding photos. He was flexible and very easy to work with. He took so many great shots and his work all proved to be beyond incredible. He was at our wedding early and stayed as long as we needed him.

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!

Portrait of Light did a wonderful job with our wedding photos. We were extremely pleased with the staff and the quality of their photography. Not only do I recommend them to others, but would use them again for other events. Thanks Lori!

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!

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!

Ryan shot our wedding and he did an amazing job! We had a very small, intimate ceremony and Ryan was very respectful of that, we barely even knew he was there. The moments that he managed to capture were amazing and reflected the beauty of our special day. Both candid and posed pictures had perfect lighting and composition. Each year my husband and I flip through the 4 photo books full of wonderful pictures that Ryan had thoughtfully captured for us.
