About

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!!

About

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.

Zachera's been nothing but the best from beginning to the end of our engagement photo session! I cannot recommend a better professional photographer. She's the bright and easy-going energy booster you need to get you out of that awkward zone if you're not used to getting photos taken. I absolutely loved her photos of us and our lovely puppy. Hope you choose her for your photo shoot!

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.

LaVita Images did an amazing job as our wedding photographers. Deb was very easy to get ahold of and was very accomodating to our specific needs for a small wedding. Our wedding day photographer was Joe and he did a fabulous job! He worked with us even through a family emergency and kept his cool. I would highly recommend LaVita images to anyone looking for a photographer.

About

I offer retouched portraits and headshots to discriminating clients who understand the importance of a professional image in today's social-media-driven workplace. I work with clients who are confident in front of the camera as well as those who would rather have their teeth pulled than have their photos taken. I try to offer an exceptional service at a reasonable price. I work with you until you are content that I have captured you at your best when viewing your instant proofs. All finished images that leave the studio have been retouched, often pixel by pixel, to remove or minimize any flaws, while maintaining a natural look. If they are used at all, instant editing filters are only used after retouching and for creative effects only. My studio headshot services include the following: * Linkedin Headshot Specials * Corporate Professional Headshots * On-Location Corporate Headshots * Actor Headshot Sessions * Model Headshots and Portfolios * Glamour Portraits and Digital Makeovers Traditional studio portraiture and custom outdoor sessions include the following: * High School Senior Portraits * School Photo Packages * Newborns * Children * Families Photo cards and custom wall print options are available. I am especially inspired by seniors who would like to incorporate their passions into their personalized photo sessions. Ask about my Senior Ambassador Program for session perks and to discuss how to personalize your session! By request, I work with professional stylists who can help with corrective, natural or glamour looks. In addition to portraiture, I also have over 25 years of experience as a commercial photographer and photo retoucher of products, beverages and food. Visit my website for my commercial portfolios.

About

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 cannot say enough good things about Ashley and her photography skills. I found Ashley on Thumbtack over 2 years ago and have hired her for a portrait session and recently, our wedding! She really was a great addition to our day. She helped us with our schedule months out from the wedding and had great communication and ideas! On the day off she arrived early, confirmed the schedule with the DJ to make sure everything ran smoothly, put the boutonniere's on the groomsmen, fixed my dress, made sure the flowers were properly taken care of, made sure we got pictures with my grandma who I never get to see, took amazing pictures and was just a total sweetheart. I would highly recommend her for portrait, engagement or wedding photography. She does great work and will work with your budget too!

I have worked with a number of photographers over my 40 year as a clay artist, and Lane Cameron is , by far the best of any of them as far as professionalism and quality of his work. The work was done in and around my studio in suburban Chicago. Lane spent most of an afternoon on the job, and I cannot think of anything that could have been done better. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for quality work done in a skilled and professional manner

About

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED photographer! I met Jonathan at a friend’s wedding several years ago. I observed his attention to detail to ensure special moments were captured for a lifetime of memories. I first used Jonathan as the photographer for my daughter 1st birthday party. He not only took wonderful random shots of our family and friends celebrating, but also captured key moments and interactions with our daughter. Further, he helped us create a photo booth where guest could step in and take fun and whimsical photos! My sister was at the party and solicited Jonathan’s services for her professional photos. Summer of 2013 Jonathan took family photos of myself, husband, daughter and one year old son at Chicago’s Lakefront. The photos were outstanding – we have them beautifully displayed in wall collage at home (and my desktop computer at work….people walk by office all the time and comment how lovely my photos areJ). The things I like most about working with Jonathan are: 1)he listens and reacts! He is sincere in wanting to capture the moments YOU want. As a professional photographer and he has good insight and experience in knowing what shots work best given location, lighting, etc and offers those opinion and suggestions while still capturing the moments you want. I often send sample photo shots for him see. 2)he takes GREAT pride in his work. He is quick in providing the end product, BUT takes the time required to ensure the photo presentation is accurate and of good quality! 3)EXCELLENT customer service before, during and after the photo-shoot. Months after taking our Lakefront photos I needed the resolution of one of my prints altered so I could print in a larger size. I asked Jonathan was it doable and without hesitation he responded!. I consider Jonathan our family photographer!

Beautiful Memories Photo was the perfect photographer for our wedding in 2010. David captured our day perfectly, from getting ready, to family portraits, to the ceremony, all the way till the last man dancing. We couldn't have asked for anything more. He was on time, courteous, and very professional. All of the most important moments of the wedding were photographed plus many of the smaller moments that were just as special to us. His job didn't end there. After the wedding was over, David put together the most beautiful album. Now we can relive our wedding day over and over. We were so happy with our experience that we hired Beautiful memories again for our Baby Shower in December 2012 and we were just as happy with our experience.

About

Congratulations on your engagement! I am a wedding photographer covering the Rockford, Chicago, DeKalb, Aurora, and Skokie locations and beyond! I combine wedding photojournalism with creative portraiture, alongside capturing the fun, spontaneous moments of your special day to give you a complete visual document of your wedding day -- your very own story. I absolutely love wedding photography, so I love when my clients are just as excited as me about their photos! I enjoy getting to know each couple and their unique stories. Weddings are filled with emotions of joy and happiness, so I love being able to capture those emotions for you to have. My absolute favorite is when we meet after the honeymoon to go over the photos together. It is such a special moment to see my clients in awe of their wedding photos that they will have forever. We will be spending a lot of time together not only on your wedding day but while designing your save-the-dates, your wedding album, and shooting your engagement photos. For this reason It is important to me that I am able to connect with each couple I work with. This is why I don't take every wedding that comes my way. You deserve the best, so I want to make sure that my team and I are the right choice for you. I would love to meet with you and hear about your wedding. With several package options, any budget is totally welcome!
