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 was truly blessed to find Kimia who photographed my wedding on 11/12/16. This young woman is a beautiful person inside and out. My kids felt comfortable around her and she was able to capture TONS of beautifully candid photos of our special day. I hope to use Kimia for all of our photography needs in the future. She is truly gifted!
Personable fun and intertaining for wedding I attended. He is a knowledgable dance instructor with years of experience. Great for 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!
The Maestro Media did an amazing job capturing all the special moments of our wedding day. We could not be happier with their work. Videographer, Mark Condra, was there working right alongside the photographer, capturing every imaginable detail. He worked so well with us and with our other vendors, helping the day go exactly as planned. The final products are videos we cherish and will use in the years to come to relive our wedding day. They gave us a copy of the full ceremony, footage of the toasts & first dances, a surprise shoutout video from friends & family (which we loved watching on our honeymoon) and such a creative, catchy highlight video that truly depicts the vibe of the whole day. Maestro Media was so quick in getting the final products to us. We won't hesitate to highly recommend them to friends and family looking for a talented, professional videographer.
Outstanding professionalism and flexibility. Great final product. Competitive prices. We'll be using Mike again for all our firm's future videography needs.
KMc Video did great work! When my client decided days before the wedding to add videography, KMc Video Productions came to our rescue. They moved a few things around to accommodate us and did an amazing job.
Kevin was great to work with and gave us a beautiful wedding video that perfectly captured the highlights of our wedding. Kevin was timely on the day of the wedding and responsive to all my questions and concerns leading up to the day. We could not have asked for anything better. Great job!!
I have worked with Phil on many occasions for various videography projects and he is extremely professional, talented and highly creative. He has the ability to problem solve quickly and make deadlines.
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.
I had been working with Harry to prepare for filming our wedding this Friday. We set up a meeting three days before the wedding date at which he said we no longer need a contract and demanded the entire payment for the project up front. This was the first time I had heard of this and I was thrown off by how it came out of the blue. Nowhere in his e-mails, website, contract, or in any of our conversation did it come up that he requires payment up front. I told him I was willing to give half and he told me that "That's not how I do buisness." He said that people usually pay him when he shows up to do the job. I agreed and said I would pay him half and how and half the day of the job. He said "that's not how I do business." He said he was sure I could find someone else to work with and got up and walked out of the restaurant. I was stunned! He has not returned any of my calls, e-mails, or texts. He has the right to ask for whatever terms he wants, but he needs to make that clear up front or put it in the contract, not drop it into a conversation three day before the wedding and then walk out when I question him. It was especially weird in that it came right after telling me he doesn't need a contract. It felt very off to me. I was not comfortable paying him in full under the circumstances and I felt like I was being railroaded into a last-minute bait and switch. He was unwilling to talk about it, negotiate, or show any sign of professionalism or care. He walked out as soon as he didn't get his way. I am angry that I am three days out from my wedding and I have no videographer! I did not see this coming!
We made a last minute decision to hire a videographer for a big birthday bash that would have many dignitaries in attendance. Eugene was hired. He attended my father's 80th birthday party at a posh downtown restaurant in Chicago so that he could create a video of the event, including lengthy speeches during a presentation. Also asked Eugene to record well wishes on video from the guests and create a shorter video montage. This involved approaching party attendees and recording them on the spot throughout the night, which took some initiative, and Eugene did this beautifully. Also created a highlight video of the overall party that was a great share on social media. Eugene really met the task of getting the footage I needed from this event beautifully. You only get one shot for live events! The 3 videos that were the outcome of this black tie event were well edited and very thoughtfully produced for us by Eugene. It's not just about recording the event, there was some artistry involved in deciding what to use, adding music and how to edit it all together. Eugene was very pleasant to work with and my entire family was pleased with his work. Thanks for capturing our special night so well.
Konrad was exceptionally easy to work with! We had several specific time restrictions, split up sessions etc. and Konrad gracefully worked with us throughout all of this. He is polite, professional and friendly. My husband and I really enjoyed working with him and will definitely hire him again for future events...our daughters baptism for starters. Not only were the final pictures beautiful, we had a lot to choose from and the price was just right! We have had a ton of compliments on our wedding photos....and we love them. He captured our special day with a lot of detail and focused on just about everything and everyone. If you want a modern, kind, easygoing person to work with seriously consider Konrad, you won't be disappointed!
Great pricing, showed up on time and gave me exactly what I wanted for my wedding video.
Ed was great! He had the perfect balance of work on his end and listening to our requests and needs for our wedding. He was engaging but not overbearing day of, which was nice. He gave us a great price, the value was way better than other DJ options out there. I would absolutely recommend you book him!
Raag did the videography for my proposal. He showed up on time and was excited to get to work. He understood my vision for the video and was able to get creative to make it even better. He is very fun and easy to work with. Even after the proposal, he continued to record every moment with my fiancé until the very end and even suggested things we could do to make the video better. He was able to edit the video and give us the final product within 4 days, which was much sooner than we could ask for. It was a pleasure to work with him and we would highly recommend him.
Will is the real deal! He was recommended to us through a friend for our wedding and we are so glad we went with him! He was thorough, took the time to get to know us, open to our ideas, brought his own creativity to the table, extremely responsive to us whenever we needed to get a hold of him or had questions, and was all around fantastic to work with. When you're planning a wedding, one of the things that you appreciate the most is an organized vendor who takes your stress away, and that's exactly what we got! We couldn't be happier with the finished product. Will caught so many amazing moments that we didn't even think about wanting to capture but we are so glad he did! I cry tears of joy every time we watch our wedding video! Look no further for your videographer, Will is your guy!!
3/04/17 Hunter was Wedding Videographer. He was great from beginning to end. Great personality and friendly. Worked hard to get the best shots. Can't wait to see the finished product!!
Very excited to be working with Chris on our wedding videography!
Caponeyboy Productions is incredible! We hired them to be the videographer for our wedding in July 2017 and they did an outstanding job from beginning to end. Our main point of contact, Anthony, was awesome! He is extremely creative, and was super friendly and accommodating to all of our needs. The day of the wedding, he brought an assistant videographer, and together, they captured all of our special moments and made us feel super comfortable in front of the camera. We just received our first cut of the highlight video and we were completely impressed. Their attention to detail was incredible and we were thrilled that they captured the essence of our day. They definitely went above and beyond and were very affordable. I HIGHLY recommend them for your wedding or video needs :) Angela K. 8/14/17
For over 30 years Paul Hardt has been making some of the best independent films I've ever seen. He has this remarkable vision where he is able to know how everything will fit together. That plus his tremendous skills are what make his productions look so good. He has spent his whole life working with people and that has served him well while on the set. When it comes to videography, Paul is the best of the best.
