Carrie did a fantastic job photographing my grandmother's 90th birthday party! She is professional, personable and talented. She was able to efficiently rangle 40 people including my grandparents and infants for a group photo and do it quick enough not to disrupt the festivities. She mingled well with the family without standing out. She was availble when we needed special photos and discretely photographed the event the rest of the time. My family was very impressed with the quality of the images and Carrie's aesthetic along with her presence at the party. I reccomended Carrie to photograph you family event or portrait for sure.
Steven is a very enjoyable, extremely talented photographer. I worked with Steven on a outdoor, Autumn-themed photo shoot in 2013, and I had a blast. During the shoot, Steven was friendly, lively, and full of amazing ideas. The photos that resulted from the shoot are gorgeous portraits that I was excited to use on my website and for other promotional materials. Steven also has an enormous amount of experience with event photography. I was lucky enough to be a subject in many of Steven's event photos from the Bristol Renaissance Faire. Gorgeous photos that capture the colors, energy and liveliness of the streets of Bristol. I could have not asked for a better experience with a a more lovely person. I would definitely recommend Steven as a photographer to any of my friends looking for portrait, event, and promotional photography.
Emil of Visual Etiquette shot my wedding on August 14th and did an amazing job. I am a graphic designer and do photo art direction professionally, so I am very critical of photographs and I couldn't be happier. Emil worked within our tight time frame without a single complaint, and still managed to get fantastic shots both indoors and out. He never stopped taking photos and captured so many great moments without interrupting the ceremony and party. On top of it all, he was friendly and nice to everyone there, I had many compliments from guests. I would not hesitate in recommending him as your wedding photographer!
Kimia is an artist. She's very patient and pleasant to work with. The photography session was so much fun and we loved the final photos. We hired her twice and planning to work with her more in the future.
Martka took our family portrait and our son's senior pictures. She knows her stuff and loves what she does. Martika thinks artistically and will come up with some great locations for your shoot. She takes her time and will give you many great photos to choose from.
Mike Sansone provided easy portraiture that captured the personality of our firm and the subject. I highly recommend Mike Sansone Photography for your next portrait session.
I hired Nikki to take photographs of a painting which was located in her local area. From the get go, Nikki was ON TOP of this project, coordinating with museum personnel, keeping me posted and making recommendations. Lastly, she used her flawless photographic skills to provide me with FAR MORE than what I expected! She is a true professional and I highly recommend her!
Anyone who has never had a photoshoot, I would highly recommend Geraldine. Geraldine and Tyler came in and were so helpful with capturing portraits for our company. I am beyond pleased with the photos she took! Cant wait until our next shoot.
Kristin is phenemonal!She was on time,she responded to me promptly and was friendly and professional.She let me do what I envisioned and more than willing to explain everything she does as a portrait artist.
I needed to have some portrait work done for an upcoming press release. Sally not only talked to our marketing group ahead of the shoot to understand their needs, but then followed up after to help retouch, etc. Outstanding working with her.
I hired Robert to shoot some boudoir photographs before Valentines Day. He is really talented, nice, and was very easy to work with in his studio. Despite being a mature woman, he made me appear elegant and pretty but with just enough spice to create an edgy/sultry look. I first noticed his work in a fine art show and he is equally talented with people. I am planning on using him in the future for a professional portrait as well. Highly recommend him.
I did an outdoors portrait photography session with Kate and she made me feel comfortable from the moment I met her. The proses was fun and easy and the shots were beautiful! She gave me a lots of options as far as location , poses and lighting. Kate totally portrayed me at my best.
Dov G was fantastic to work with! He listened and made sure he knew exactly what I wanted in my shoot. During the shoot he was very professional with his camera work, yet relaxed and personable in his demeanor, making him a pleasure to converse with. When I recieved the editted pictures I was blown away with how amazing they looked. Friends of mine were calling my potraits art rather than photos. Will definitely work with Dov G again and I highly recommend to anyone looking.
Barney was incredible! He truly was the best any of us could've dreamed of, and we were lucky enough to have him as my bridal photographer . He was fun, energetic and in great spirits the entire time. You will NOT regret this decision when choosing someone to best capture your special day. Afterall, it is the first day of the rest of your lives. Cherish it always with Chicago Portraits Photography. Barney, thanks again for all you've done. I meant it when I said, "You're the best!".
Mark was an amazing photographer. We booked him for our engagement photos, and we had such a great time with him and are extremely impressed with the photos he has sent us. He had an amazingly fast turnaround time for some sample photos with just a 2 day wait from our shoot. For the rest of the photos it only took him a couple of weeks! His work with lighting was spectacular, and he really made my fiancé and I enjoy the whole experience. We would highly recommend him to anyone wanting any photos taken, whether engagement, wedding, or even just portraits.
Chris was excellent to work with. He was punctual, professional, accommodating and had some great advice. He did a 28 person family portrait and then individual family shots and some candid pictures. Our proofs were ready in 48 hours. I would highly recommend Chris. He was great to work with.

Soo took my maternity portrait when I was 8months pregnant. I was a bit nervous because I can be a bit camera shy. ;) Soo and his wife are professional and caring and have a lot of techniques for helping me to relax and feel comfortable. Most of all, I felt so beautiful. ; ). I cannot thank Soo enough for the most wonderful experience! I was happy with not only the photos (photos are FANTASTIC) but my experience at studio Soo as well. I definitely recommend them.
Needed some professional business portraits done and this guy made it easy, especially with my awkwardness in front of a camera. He has an eye in understanding the clients needs and capturing the best parts of the person even if it may not seem there. Love his energy - highly recommend him!!
Wenyuan is very punctual and friendly. He is good with kids. He clicked pictures for my son's 1st Birthday party and even few family portraits. The pictures were amazing and he captured nice moments. I would recommend Wenyuan to everyone looking out for a good photographer.
Ashley is absolutely amazing! I am a makeup artist and worked with her on a styled bridal shoot recently. Her photos are literally stunning!!!! She has such a sweet personality and drive to make every shot “just so”. I get so many compliments on the photos we worked on together too! I wholeheartedly trust Ashley to make any special event even more special with her beautiful photos. She really is amazing - just look at her portfolio!! :)
