Karolina took photos of our daughter on her 1st birthday. As new parents, we had no idea what to expect, but her experience, guidance and relaxed professionalism really helped smooth the process. Despite only being scheduled to shoot for 45 minutes, we managed to get an abundance of expressive and memorable photos of our baby girl to choose from. We are very pleased with the results and look forward to having Karolina take our outdoors family photos in the coming months.
What can I say about Nicole and Jay! They have become not only our favorite photographers but our new friends. They are so easy and comfortable to work with, we felt like we knew them for years. Every pose, every location produced such an amazing photo. Turn around time and email responses were so super quick! And the photos of our engagement session and wedding day left us breathless--so so amazing and beautiful! Working with The Still Life is the best decision we made for our wedding day :)
Carrie is amazing! We hired her as our wedding photographer in 2016 and she has since become our family photographer! In addition to our wedding, we have used her for birthday parties and also 2 Christmas card photos, she even gets my dogs to pose! Carrie is amazing!
We hired Steven (Bourelle Photography) for a family photo session and we couldn't be any more pleased. The shoot location was Rollins Savanna, in volatile and continually changing outdoor conditions (wind, challenging lighting, clouds, pedestrian obstructions) Steven took advantage of every possible moment and situation. The way Steven worked with us, his creativity, patience and super-fun personality was so refreshing and it shines-through in his craft (photos). The superior-quality of the final product Steven produced was simply outstanding. The fact that he got two, not so excited, teenage boys to participate and actually smile is a testament to how well he managed the entire shoot. With all that goes into planning and actually taking family photos, it should have been a real chore. To the contrary, it was a first-class experience. We highly recommend Steve and Bourelle Photography.
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 could not be grateful enough to have found Nikki on Thumbtack! She blew us away with her ability to wrangle all 9 of us for outdoor family portraits. She captured the best photos I've ever seen of my three wild nephews (7, 5, and 3 years old). When we posed for pics she helped us all to be at the right angles and coordinated. The boys were totally at ease with her and we all had a really great time. She is very professional, her edits were tasteful (not overly filtered), her prices are beyond fair, and we now have a large album of beautiful photos that capture our family at it's best. Highly recommend contacting Nikki. I'm booking her again for my other side of the family and will continue to reach out to her in the future. THANK YOU, NIKKI!
Abbey is really nice person,very professional!Love to work with her.She did a great job,so now we have a lot beautiful photos of us and our friends. Absolutely will work with her again!
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.
Sally is a wonderful, artistic, creative photographer with a unique perspective that results in captivating, dynamic photos. One thing I love about working with her is that she lets me look at the shots as we go, adjust, and offer suggestions. She has a commitment to excellence that makes her the best.
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!
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!
This year is my year. I decided to join a dating site. I know that the process starts with a great picture. You simply have to put your best foot forward. Well, I needed a photographer who understood my objective. Tony understood exactly what I wanted to achieve and he gave me many options for profile picture. I did not know which one to select. We went to two different locations with three wardrobe changes in the rain. He offered to reschedule and re shoot if the pictures were not what I wanted. He was very professional and efficient. His initial contact was within minutes of my request for proposal. He returned the finished product to me less than 48 hours later. I had many pictures from which to select. He then did additional clean up on my main photo. I think I have found a new photographer for my family.
Ronald was very patient during an outdoor photo shoot with my young children. I am pleased with the pictures and he was very cost effective. He was efficient and responsive. I highly recommend him for a photo shoot.
Mark was wonderful! Due to our tight schedule, we ended up having our outdoor photo shoot on the coldest day of 2017 in Chicago. With a great sense of humor, easy going personality and adventurous spirit, Mark created a gorgeous set of engagement photos for us at not one but four different locations. He made our visions a reality and has given us incredible photos that we will always cherish! Don't hesitate to hire Retiro Photography for any of your photography needs.
Harry did couple of photo sessions (one for grand opening for enopi learning center in south elgin) and other one our family photo session, he took time and work or gave us lots of idea for memorable photos. He is very good with camera as well good with all age people and very professional. Very good job and very satisfied with results, thank you Jigar
I did an outdoors portrait photography session with Kate and she made me feel comfortable from the moment I met her. The proses was fun and easy and the shots were beautiful! She gave me a lots of options as far as location , poses and lighting. Kate totally portrayed me at my best.
Made a fantastic decision of hiring Dee and her team! Very lay back and easy to work with unlike other photographers I've worked in the past. Dee was determined, provided extra photo time, and made our night fun time. Hope to work with Moore Elite in the future.
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!
Ryan and his assistant Dan were amazing to work with. Prior to the wedding, Ryan was very responsive and answered all of my questions. He was available by phone, e-mail, and text. Over a 3 day wedding weekend, Ryan and Dan attended multiple events and captured every special moment plus captured posed photos for friends and family. I cannot recommend him enough, and would absolutely work with Ryan again if the opportunity arose.
