My fiancé and I had an outstanding experience getting engagement photos taken from Karolina. This was our first time getting professional photos taken and she exceeded our expectations. She was well prepared and captured the intimate poses and closeness we were wanting in our pictures. I would highly recommend Karolina to anyone looking to get outstanding service for their personalized photography.

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.

Kimia shot our engagement photos and it was a fantastic experience. We are not great at posing and she got us into position with no problem. She took the time to listen to what we wanted and tweaked our requests so that we needed up with the perfect shots. Kimia was very accommodating and fun to work with. I definitely recommend her services.

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.

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.

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!

We could not have asked for a more fun, professional, quality photographer. Communication with Ronald was comfortable and very timely. Ronald was such a wonderful part of our day. Our elopement felt so special and not in the least bit intruded upon while our ceremony took place. Ronald celebrated and laughed with us. He captured every possible moment from intimate, to candid, to posed all without creating any bit of awkwardness. The poses suggested by Ronald fit us so well and weren't unnatural or stuffy. His passion for his craft is evident. He was the absolute perfect choice for us.

Kate was such a pleasure to work with. I hired Kate to take pictures of my proposal and then come to a second location for a surprise party for my fiance. At the proposal, she was able to suggest neat settings to take pictures in. Kate was able to come to both locations and take beautiful pictures for us. I can't wait to see how the rest of them turn out. I look forward to working with Kate on other events in the future and possibly and engagement photography session. Thanks, Kate!

Could not have had a better experience with a photographer. Harry was responsive to my initial requests, was punctual, took candid and nice quality photos of our events (trust me, this is not always the case, even with professional photographers!), he sent me the pics quickly, and top of all that, he generously donated to our cause!

We had a great experience with Tony. He arrived early which was nice to not have to worry about where's my photographer? I had looked through portfolios of other photographers and just really like his style. Although it was a little more than the other quotes I feel I was well worth it. The other examples I saw were pretty average. You can tell that Tony has a lot of experience with photography. My pictures turned out great and he got them done so fast! I would highly recommend this company for your photography needs!

Mark did our engagement photos and they turned out great! He was very kind and made our experience unforgettable. It was very affordable and he came to the place I wanted the photos to be done, which was a far trip from Cincinnati. Our pictures came back soon and they turned out excellent, me and my fiance are more then happy with what we received!

Really love this place and highly recommend Soo Studio !! I visited Chicago from MN because I had to add a photo on my resume. Pretty sure he is a great photographer not only for wedding, but also portrait photo. I had to wear shirt and jacket for my photo ID, but unfortunately I didn't have one. However, thankfully he lent me his shirts and jackets so I could take great photos. He is also very professional doing post-editing. Very professional, nice and friendly. I really thanks for great photos. want to give this place 10 stars !!

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!

Jim took our engagement and wedding pictures. He took the time to capture everything from the littlest of details to the parade of family shots for us. We took quite a few outdoor photos as well. He was patient with the elements and made sure to maximize nature's backdrop. We had a list of must have shots that he was happy to take but we're also very happy with what he was able to improvise. He was very professional all through the process and the end product turned out great!

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.

Rafay was great. Easy to reach and responsive. Was punctual and needed little direction amidst a chaotic party of close to 100 people. Captured the event beautifully and picture quality was great. And his rate is extremely reasonable given the exceptional quality of his work. Will definitely go back to him if we need a photographer in the future.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
