I hired Isabel for my mother's 80th birthday party and she was awesome. Was there early and stayed late to ensure we had as many great shots as possible to capture the moment. I'd highly recommend her for any one looking for a highly professional job.

I don't think I can say enough good things about Jay and Nicole. From the consultation to the wedding and even after, Jay and Nicole have been absolutely amazing. They made everything simple and they were super quick at responding to my every email...brides...lol Jay was my photographer on my wedding day and everyone loved him, it felt like he was a family friend that was doing us a favor but way more professional and a way better photographer. He stayed after hours too to grab a drink and hang out. I mean cmon, who does that? Most just want to get home and call it a day. I would work with them again in a heart beat and plan to, if I am in need of a photographer in the future. Thank you guys so much for all your hard work.

Philip was great! We hired him to photograph my grandmother's 100th birthday party, and he was incredibly responsive and punctual. Should I need a professional photographer in the future, I would absolutely choose to work with Philip again.

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.

We had Emil for our wedding on February 20, 2015. He was right on time and started taking pictures right away. He was extremely awesome. He was showing me the pictures as he was taking them to show me what we needed to do to get the best pictures. We gave him so little to work with and he was extremely creative. We were missing people from the wedding party and instead of wasting time, he just started taking more pictures. we can't wait to share the pictures with our family and friends. My husband and I were trying to go low cost, and we got a bargain. Thank you Emil for helping make our special day so smooth and worry free. And for putting up with my insane bridal party and family!

It was great working with Martika for my daughter's 1-year-old birthday party AND cake smash photos. It was a lot to cram in to a short amount of time and limited space, and she was very flexible, accommodating and had great suggestions. The photos are GORGEOUS and she had a very fast turnaround time! Also, she's very quick at responding to questions/emails which is great. Would definitely recommend Martika as a photographer! Thank you!

We hired Danielle for our daughter's first birthday. The images we got back were simply stunning! The detail shots were perfection, and the photos of the guests mixing and mingling were perfectly candid and very natural. I would hire Danielle again in a second! She's also very easy to work with -- friendly and quick to respond when we had questions! A++!

My husband and I hired Kimia to photograph our wedding party. Kim did a wonderful job. She arrived early (and scoped the place beforehand) and was very attentive the whole time (7 hours!?!) it was a lively party and she gave us the photos we wanted - candid shots of all of our guests having the time of their lives.

Dov was awesome. The guests at the party we had him shoot repeatedly said he seemed to love his work and to genuinely care about what he was shooting. He was also flexible about working around our wierd surprise party needs and great in post helping with creating a photo book. An absolute delight. I highly recommend him!

Ekaterina was timely, professional, personable, and artistic in her work. We took engagement photos with her after finding her on Thumbtack. I saw the work posted on her website and was wowed at the quality and artistic creativity. We were unsure of good locations and she provided options for us to choose from and a plan B in case of rain. During the photoshoot, we admitted that we were unsure what to do and she guided us comfortably through the entire shoot. She made us feel comfortable enough to be silly and genuine and the photos came out very natural looking. The photos look beautiful (even before editing), and we have already booked her for our wedding. I look forward to booking her for graduation photos for my M. Ed. I would HIGHLY recommend her to all of my family and friends for a photographer of any type of event or occasion.

Working with Tony at Life on Prints was wonderful. We used his services for a Bachelorette Party photoshoot, and we got beautiful candid and group shots that the bride will cherish forever. Tony was so easy and great to work with, got the shots I didn't even know I wanted, and all the ones I knew I did. We had a larger group of 12 women at the party, and he was flexible, patient and creative. It was a perfect experience and I would recommend him to anyone!

Harry, of Snappybytes, did a wonderful job for our wedding reception photos. He was very professional and he dressed very professional as well. Harry was early, he was humble, and he was focused. He blended in well with our crowd and stayed in the background. Harry was so hardworking! He didn't sit down at all. I really appreciate Harry's flexibility, advice, and direction. Hiring Harry is one of the best investments I ever made because the photos are outstanding. He did a great job with portraits, candid shots, and he captured the scenery very well. I would hire him again because he's talented and his services are a great deal for the price. I highly recommend him for your event and I hope he's available for my next event!

We loved absolutely EVERYTHING about working with Mark Burch from Retiro Photography. He was extremely organized, easy to work with, and not to mention, a BLAST! As the bride, he made the wedding day go smoothly and made sure we were on time, which was one thing I thought I was going to stress about. He made up an itinerary of our wedding day months in advance which included pictures of the bridal party prior to the ceremony, pictures immediately following the wedding ceremony with specific family members, and the timing of pictures taken at locations prior to the reception. When we met up with Mark before our engagement photo session, my husband and I could really sense his passion and enthusiasm for photography, which made it even easier to hire him. He was extremely easy to work with throughout the whole wedding process, from before engagement pictures up to the wedding day. He communicated very well with us throughout our entire engagement. Our engagement photo session was amazing and we could not be happier with how the photos turned out. So far, we have only gotten a preview of our wedding photos, but what we've seen so far has exceeded our expectations. We are so happy we hired Mark!

David is a true visionary. He has a gift for taking an idea and creatively bring it to life through photography, technology and the arts. David was the photographer for my wedding. Or rather I should say the visionary for my wedding. My Wedding album and wall photography are so beautiful! I truly enjoyed working with him and watching him create artistically. He is a great listener, has great insight and phenomenal skills. He worked closely with my husband and I to assure our satisfaction. I highly recommend Didomi Design and Photography. I will be working with him shortly, again, on another project!

Lino photographed my grandparents 65th anniversary party. It was so nice having someone there to capture the moment. He took mostly candids and a few group shots. He was on time and very personable. The pictures turned out great. Perfect way to memorialize the celebration!

Konrad is a true professional. He was responsive, efficient, punctual and very easy to work with. He did a full 5 hour session of posed and candid pictures for my 40th Birthday and turned the pictures around in a little over a week and they were great! I was nervous about using thumbtack for the first time but Konrad exceeded all of my expectations. I would definitely hire him again!

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!".

We hired Eric to take photos at a large party to celebrate our MBA graduation, and we couldn't have been more pleased with his excellent work! He mingled throughout the party without being obtrusive, staged great shots where appropriate, indulged the requests of our quests, and captured some amazing candid shots throughout the night--all of which were quickly made available to us via Dropbox. I'd definitely hire him again!

I am so happy with the job Matt did at our wedding! We threw a few challenges his way and he handled every single one with aplomb, and made us look really good, to boot! The first challenge was getting all our schedules sorted. My husband and I work odd hours, well outside normal 9-5, so meeting up with Matt and getting him to meet our coordinator and see the main space and the outdoor photo areas took a little wrangling. He made it work, no problem. He also scouted the outdoor location on his own time when we couldn't meet up. He was so easy to work with, bless him. He was so easy to work with. On the day of the wedding, he made it to our outdoor photo shoot location early, which was great. Unfortunately *we* were running behind, and we ruined our chance at photos in Humboldt Park's lovely gardens by showing up minutes before a freak torrential downpour. Didn't matter; Matt had us take photos in the cover of the boathouse, and the photos are gorgeous. I don't even miss the garden photos because the boathouse pics have such great drama and framing. The indoor ceremony and reception were held in one place (Revolution Brewing) so Matt shot us in waning indoor summer light, soft candle light, and the harsh glare of the florescent lights in the brewery. All came out great, even with our diverse wedding party--several shades of black, Asian, Hawaiian, and white. It's actually not easy to get good color balance in shots with that breadth of skin tones. He did an amazing job. And he was just fun to work with. Good sense of humor, easy-going, but always professional. Overall a great experience. I would highly recommend him.

Veera was an amazing photographer, I just received my pictures and they look amazing, my family and I was so impressed with the results. Veera was very professional and super accommodating. He was very understanding when we were running behind schedule, and suggested awesome poses for the wedding party and the family pictures. I am so glad I went with Veera for my big day, and I would definitely recommend him to everyone.
