Karolina was very professional, helpful and excellent at her job! She communicated with me, showed up on time, did what we agreed on! I am so grateful for her and how beautifully she caught our daughter's 1st Birthday party! She is my photographer to go to now and recommend her to everyone I know. She did what she promised!

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.

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!

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.

From start to finish Nikki was positive and professional to work with and our wedding photos came out exactly the way we wanted! She took great care in researching beautiful locations in our area, planning for the forecasted rain, and making sure we were comfortable. All of the careful planning shows in the gorgeous photos we received. We could not recommend Nikki more highly if you are looking for a photographer to capture a private/intimate ceremony.

50th Wedding Anniversary Party--Abbey Prow was wonderful. She was unobtrusive in taking pictures and captured the essence of our celebration. We recommend her highly and would use her photographic services again when the event requires a true professional.

After meeting with several photographers, she was the ONLY one my wife and i liked. Her professionalism is unlike any other - prompt with responses, super creative and pictures came on time.Geraldine has one of the biggest hearts of anyone I have ever met, and I was absolutely honored to have her play such an important role in my wedding. I can't recommend her enough.

Milan and Jelena were amazing! They were so professional and knew exactly what to do. Honestly, we were a little nervous looking for a photographer - we didn't know who to trust. All of the Chicago wedding photographers were either out of our budget or something was a little off when we would meet with them or speak with them on the phone. We read a lot of good reviews and met with Jelena at a coffee shop briefly. We got a good feeling so we decided to go with WS photography. I am so glad that we did! We LOVE our wedding photos! If you're unsure about hiring Milan and his team, don't be. They are great and you will not be disappointed!

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!

Both Mile and Irena were wonderful to work with....The moment I contacted them for a quote they were responsive and professional. Our family photo shoot not only went smoothly but the pictures were amazing! They're so creative with their unique staging ideas and make you feel so comfortable. Our boys started to get antsy and they were so patient and even entertained them while making sure we got all our shots. They had our photos ready for us very quickly! We also rented one of their photo booths for our son's birthday and brother's wedding. All the guests loved it! Such s fun touch. I would highly recommend using halo photography for photos and all event needs. They're the best!!!

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!

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!

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!

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!

I'm not a picture person, however after booking Dee Moore for my wedding and seeing the results, I was thrilled!! She captured moments I didn't know occurred that day. Her creativity and professionalism is an A+. After receiving such beautiful photos from my wedding, I had to book Dee Moore for my pregnancy pictures, baby shower, and my baby girl's first birthday. During personal photo shoots, Dee Moore makes you feel relaxed and her creativity makes the pictures phenomenal. I would definitely recommend Dee Moore photos.

We held a 50th wedding anniversary with about 80 people invited for lunch and a slide show. We asked Joan to photograph every guest (as singles, couples or family) as they came in through our greeting reception process. Joan arrived on time amid the chaos of my family setting up the American Legion Hall for the event. (Four people cutting and arranging 270 stems of flowers and decorating 12 tables and we were late!) Joan set up her backdrop and lights in her designated corner and almost immediately started to photograph our guests as they arrived. Joan was amazing with the guests and accommodating with every situation. She photographed guest families with 3 year old children through a blind nun family member with beauty and dignity. Joan understood the general assignment well and executed it beautify with no supervision. When situation were not clear, she asked what was required. Working with her was like working with an old friend of many years. Our friends and family commented on Joan's friendly manner and demeanor in working with them. Joan is a "natural" for this kind of work and exceeded our expectations. We asked for and received a DVD of all her photography on this event which she produced before she left. Our intention is to print pictures to send to our friends and family along with the thank you letters and another set of prints to make what will be a very special 50th anniversary memory book.

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!
