We had a great experience with Nicole. We met downtown Chicago for an hour session for family portraits. We included both indoor and outdoor photos and the entire experience went smoothly and quickly. We started right on time with Nicole having some times to scope out the surroundings and have setting ideas. We have young children so this saved lots of valuable time. We got some great city shots as well. Overall, the experience was exactly what we were looking for. Be prepared to pay up front, I'm not sure if all photographers expect payment first. But Nicole is wonderful to work with, already recommended to some friends!

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.

Emil of Visual Etiquette shot my wedding on August 14th and did an amazing job. I am a graphic designer and do photo art direction professionally, so I am very critical of photographs and I couldn't be happier. Emil worked within our tight time frame without a single complaint, and still managed to get fantastic shots both indoors and out. He never stopped taking photos and captured so many great moments without interrupting the ceremony and party. On top of it all, he was friendly and nice to everyone there, I had many compliments from guests. I would not hesitate in recommending him as your wedding photographer!

I needed to have some portrait work done for an upcoming press release. Sally not only talked to our marketing group ahead of the shoot to understand their needs, but then followed up after to help retouch, etc. Outstanding working with her.

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!

Mark was an amazing photographer. We booked him for our engagement photos, and we had such a great time with him and are extremely impressed with the photos he has sent us. He had an amazingly fast turnaround time for some sample photos with just a 2 day wait from our shoot. For the rest of the photos it only took him a couple of weeks! His work with lighting was spectacular, and he really made my fiancé and I enjoy the whole experience. We would highly recommend him to anyone wanting any photos taken, whether engagement, wedding, or even just portraits.

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!".

Chris was excellent to work with. He was punctual, professional, accommodating and had some great advice. He did a 28 person family portrait and then individual family shots and some candid pictures. Our proofs were ready in 48 hours. I would highly recommend Chris. He was great to work with.

I was very impressed by the quality of my business portrait photographs taken by Mr. Vandever. He was professional, honest, detail-oriented, and an excellent value. I am really picky with photos, and I ended up with several great photos that were excellent. I originally contacted him because I had heard from two corporate executives that he is is the "go-to" photographer in Northwest Indiana for high-quality portraits. I definitely found that to be the case. I will use him for any future photo needs for myself, my small business, and my family.

Francisco Gonzalez of Zalez Photography was a class-act from the first message to final photo delivery. We contracted him for a Chicago wedding--a destination wedding for us--and hired him after being attracted to his corporate photos (in particular, his handling of people and color). It was clear from the get-go he also has a lot of wedding experience. He captured all the big joys and little moments. He was encouraging for formal portraits and absolutely seamless for candid shots. When we got our photos, I kept saying, "I didn't even know he took that!" I credit Francisco's skill, experience, and creativity for getting us the photos we wanted--and his enthusiasm for making it fun! An all-around great experience. I would hire him again in a heartbeat. Thank you, Francisco and Zalez Photo!

Anyone who knows me knows I am a bit unusual. The art I make is unique as are my taste. My favorite aspect of my shoot with Beloved Osaruchi is that she got me. She captured me in my element in a way that reflects who I am as an artist. Well done.
