My husband and I had the pleasure of meetimg and working with Carrie for our 20 year wedding anniversary. We chose to renew our vows and we did not have a professional photographer for our first wedding. So the outcome of these photos meant the world to us and Carrie delivered. She came up to our suite before the event and took pics of the bride getting ready and she went over to where the fellas were and captured priceless moments..we have reviewed the photos and are very pleased to say that she did a wonderful job and she had a great personality to go along with it..THANK YOU CARRIE for capturing our very special day...Mr. and Mrs Duty!!

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.

Agnes arrived early. Emil happened to be along so we had TWO photographers! They were so professional and captured everything we asked and much more. They filled the entire two hours of the contract with a constant stream of photos. We were so satisfied we cut the cake early and let Agnes go on to her next event -- we couldn't imagine anything else to be captured. We'd very highly recommend Emil and Agnes!!

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.

I couldn't have asked for a better photographer! Kimia is very professional yet she feels like a very good friend! She will always update you through email/text and I always get a reply from her right away! She took my pictures in downtown Chicago and she picked out beautiful locations to take the photos. I had so much fun with her and I would 100% recommend everyone to hire Kimia!! Not only does she focus on detail, she is also very knowledgable about photography and she knows how to get the perfect natural lighting/angle in every picture. She made me feel comfortable and it was easy to express myself! All the pictures turned out amazing and I have never been more satisfied in the results! Her pricing is also very reasonable compared to other photographers in the area who charge almost double! She is perfect for portraits, weddings, family photoshoots, senior portraits, headshots, etc...! Her work is absolutely amazing and I will definitely be working with her again in the future! Thank you Kimia for a wonderful experience!

I've had headshots done in my past with not so great photographers so when I was looking of a new photographer I was feeling kinda worried about who to chose but I am beyond thankful my friend recommended Mike Sansone Photography to me! Such an unforgettable experience. Mike is very good at what he does and makes you feel so comfortable/ confident behind the camera! Needless to say if you need new headshots done I highly recommend Mike!!

If you're like me, then you heavily base purchasing goods and services on reviews. I take feedback from others very seriously, so if you do as well but don't have time to read my full review just know - the WS Photography team were my FAVORITE vendor of my entire wedding and you just need to hire them now! If you do have time to read my full review, read on for more details. When I first found WS photography, I couldn't believe that such an amazing photographer was A. available for my wedding date and B. such an affordable price. I was in such disbelief that I showed their work to two of my friends who are professional photographers and graphic designers and they reassured me that WS was an excellent choice and had stellar portfolios. From our initial talks, I learned that Ana and Milan had only been in Chicago for a short time but have been shooting weddings around the world for years. Ana was so accommodating during our first talk and even sent over a mock timeline to help me with my decision making. After I hired them the communication was still amazing and we settled on a timeline that worked for all of us since my husband and I were doing a first look and shooting all the photos beforehand. Ana even helped me talk through saving time and money by letting Milan scout out places to take cool photos outside the venue instead of trying to get everyone on a shuttle to go downtown. The day of the Wedding, WS did not disappoint. They were on time and friendly from the beginning and got straight to work. They gave great direction and made everyone in our bridal party feel so comfortable. When we didn't know how to pose or what to do, they gave us direction and sometimes even moved us into the ideal places we needed to be! I think WS will be one of the busiest photographers in Chicago very quickly so do yourself a favor and get on their calendar NOW! The work and service are unmatched and you'll be extremely happy to have them capture your big day!

I can't say enough lovely things about All Corporate Video and Photo. Mike Kozuchowski was so fantastic to work with- I was looking for a last minute photographer for an event I was throwing only a few days before the event. Mike was nothing but professional, easy to work with and went above and beyond what was asked of him. I will definitely work with him again in the future, when another project comes up and I highly recommend to anyone that is looking for a photographer and or a videographer. Thanks Mike!

When I embarked on this idea of getting photos of our company project hundreds of miles away, I initially thought that I would fly to Chicago to take them myself, but then I started adding up the cost of flights, hotel, time, etc. and realized that maybe hiring a local professional photographer would be more cost-effective. I had never hired someone right off of the internet so I was skeptical at first, but hiring Mark was a great decision. He was professional, very responsive and quick, but most importantly the photos that he took are fantastic! He sent sample photos to me within 5 days, which I was able to evaluate and give him feedback on, based on what I was looking for. He asked what I was using them for in oder to supply them to me in the appropriate resolution. Then in a matter of a couple of days he sent me a link with the photos. I love the photos that he took and enjoyed working with him. If I have other projects in Chicago and areas that he travels, I will definitely hire Mark again.

Could not have had a better experience with a photographer. Harry was responsive to my initial requests, was punctual, took candid and nice quality photos of our events (trust me, this is not always the case, even with professional photographers!), he sent me the pics quickly, and top of all that, he generously donated to our cause!

Michael was professional and courteous and clearly knew his business. He communicated clearly over the course of our two day event and snapped some unforgettable photos that added life to a relatively reserved conference. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a professional photographer, particularly if they’re hosting a multi-stage event as we did.

The experience with Chris was fantastic! Not only is he a consummate professional, but he made the experience so fun, easy and positive. Unlike most family photographers, there was nothing staged. He just let us play and talk, and captured the most magical moments of our family being ourselves. I would highly recommend him to any family who is tired of standing by a picket fence or in front of a backdrop for their family photos. It is truly a unique end product that you will treasure!

I occasionally hire photographers to shoot projects where I am not present, and this was one of those instances. A problem I've encountered in the past is getting shots that are different, or not inclusive, of the directions I provided. Not so with Michael! He showed up on time, shot everything I asked for, turned the images around quickly, and delivered high quality work. He has a great eye and excellent technical ability. I would definitely hire him again for any project in his area.
