I hired Phil for a bachelorette photo shoot for a total of 10 girls. The photo shoot was for my sister. All the girls had an awesome time with Phil! He was absolutely amazing. He had never ending pose ideas and was also completely willing to try out whatever poses my sister had in mind. Despite the 95+ degree weather, Phil was a trooper and even kept us in the shade throughout our entire photo shoot. I have yet to see the final products, but I am sure they will look great! I highly recommend Phil and would definitely hire him again if I ever need a photographer in the STL area. I'm not sure I could have asked for a better photographer for our photo shoot!
Easy to get along with and took amazing photos. Thanks for making my day even more special! I'll be contacting for baby photos soon!
I would say this is the most amazing photographer that I have ever worked with but she is more than that. She is the most amazing PERSON I have ever worked with on anything period! She is professional, courteous, and accommodating yet easy going and fun-loving! We hired her to do my daughter's senior pictures and I can't even begin to describe what an incredible experience it was. Not only did she do a fantastic job she did it at the last minute. The photographer that we originally hired cancelled 4 hours before the scheduled shoot. He was worried about the weather forecast. I knew it was a long shot to try and find someone else at the last minute but we had already put a lot of preparation into getting ready for the session. By that I mean we had already picked the outfits, done the hair and makeup and I had transformed the back of our SUV into a sort of fitting room. Since we were doing the shoot Downtown St Louis I knew my daughter would need a place to change clothes so I was prepared. Little did I know that Giovanna, even on such short notice, had us covered for any eventuality. She had her own little pop up dressing room, towels, umbrellas and just about anything else you can think of or would need. Again she did all of this with just a couple hours notice. Only later did I find out that she lives about an hour from the location we had chosen for the shoot so really she put it together in about an hour and she did it without hesitation. Needless to say I was extremely grateful for everything she was doing and I told her I couldn't believe what all she had done to make it happen for us. Her response was simply, "I like to make people happy." Now you know what I mean when I say she is the most amazing PERSON period! How many photographers would drop everything they were doing last minute on a Sunday afternoon, meet a strange client an hour away, and be more professional and prepared than any photographer you have ever worked with before......only GIOVANNA von NIDA PHOTOGRAPHY I guarantee it !!!
Fantastic experience. Paul was on time and worked hard during a chaotic day at my graduation. He was friendly with my family and worked quickly to get the photographs to me. He took the time to meet with me the day before graduation to talk about what we were looking for specifically. He did all this for the lowest price of all the photographers who were on Thumbtack. Would recommend him to anyone looking for a reliable and skilled photographer.
Martha did a fantastic job customizing our Senior Picture photo shoot for our son. She had some very clever "out-of-the-box" ideas that really captured our son's personality and provided memories that will last forever. I highly recommend Essence Photography for a Senior Picture photo shoot that will be personalized and unique. Very Well Done!
Emily Dobson is a great photographer! Her pictures turn out amazing everytime! When we were looking through my senior pictures it was so hard to decided what I wanted they were all so fantastic! Emily is so great at making you feel comfortable and is super fun to work with! I recommend her to everyone!!
Steve did a wonderful job during our session. I was nervous and worried about my very wiggly kids not sitting still for ANY shots. Not only did he get their attention for some beautiful group shots, but he captured some of the "wiggly moments" which made me laugh. He captured my children's personalities beautifully and created unforgettable portraits we will treasure for a lifetime. I hope he is ready to see our family grow because I can tell you I'm never going back to a portrait studio!
I have seen many photographers before.Actually, I am really picky with every single thing that I wanna do or buy, but, but, he is the one whom you can ly on him with no hassles.we had 3 hrs of fun and enjoyable photo-shooting with him and, I really happy for choosing him between other photographers .our photos are amazing and speechless.I really love ,love ,love.... my husband is a very uncomfortable guy with these kinds of stuff like photo-shooting, but at the end, he told me we should have more session in future and it was shocking for me :))definitely I and my husband will have more session in different seasons with him, as long as we live in St.Louis. I highly recommend him to any couples who looking for a punctual, professional, responsible photographer with a calm session, and amazing photos... :)
Sara is a great photographer! She took the time to understand what we were looking for in professional headshots and she nailed it! Quality work and highly recommended!
We were very happy to find Shaun and had amazing experience with him during the family photo session. We did a session with a newborn daughter and Shaun did great job: we essentially got combination of family and baby photo session. Great value! Shaun is a professional and he took our project seriously and several days before, he contacted me to ask about our preferences, poses we would like to have. We were amazed by his energy, creativity and attitude. He was really flexible and patient, as we had to make brakes to feed or change. Our photos came out really beautiful!!! And we got them on the next day after the photo session. We are relatively new in the area and didn't know good photographers; this experience was in contrast to our previous experience (we hired photographers twice in the past and both times, we were unhappy with results) and wish we would have known about Shaun earlier.
Jason is a great photographer. My family pics turned out great! I cant wait for my next session. He is very reasonable on his pricing and really works with you to make sure your portraits turn out the way you want them! I would recommend him to anyone!
Theresa photographed my daughter's Bat Mitzvah Ceremony and luncheon party. She definitely went above and beyond in all aspects! She went and looked at the facilities before the event so she knew the layout and atmosphere and could be totally prepared the day of the event. She made sure she knew about the event and what was important to "capture." She took pictures before, during, and after the ceremony and caught all the important moments - even moments that we did not realize. She did a lot of extremely creative shots as well and thought ahead of how and what she wanted for our album. She took some additional outside shots and found a way to "fit' them in the album. She posted the pictures a couple days later and her website was extremely easy to use. The book she produced for us was beyond superb. Her layout techniques and creativity of the pictures was amazing. The picture quality and finish on the pictures was unbelievable. She was wonderful and easy to work with and was a true professional in all aspects. She created not only an amazing memory of this important event but keepsakes to last forever. My daughter and family loved her caring personality and how much she cared about the importance of this special day. All my friends and family that see the album can't say enough of the high quality and wonderful photos. She is an amazing photographer and extremely talented and really cares about what is important to the customer. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Melanie is great! She photographed my baby for her 1 month and 2 month. Both months she came to my house, with all of her equipment, at a time that was convienent for me. She was very patient with my daughter and took some beautiful pictures! I was hesitant to take my newborn to a mall studio so knowing that she would come to my house made everything so much easier!
I absolutely loved the pictures carleigh did of my son. Everyone who sees them say wow she is really good. Not to mention she is affordable. I have a couple pictures in my office and all of my clients that come in are impressed. I would recommend her to anyone you is looking to get great pictures done.
Mark has shot many photos for us, including portraits of our son and photos for our destination wedding and reception. He demonstrates a range from traditional to fine art, and anything in between. He has mastered the use of natural lighting to give his photos personality and presence. The quality of his work and attention to detail are second to none and the variety he is able to offer to clients from a single photo shoot is impressive. Mark’s “urban nature” fine art photography is also present in our home on a larger scale. From tabletop, to portraiture, to location photography, Mark is able to capture the true nature of his subjects in a distinctive and artistic way.
Mike is our first choice for family photos. He has very creative ideas to get the perfect shot. He's really good at capturing the moments inbetween poses as well. He is very patient and works well with children, even when our kids didn't want to cooperate- he was still able to capture their smiles. I would highly recommend him for any of your photography needs!!
I had a great experience with Andrea! I walked in totally clueless, but she found a way that allowed me to feel totally comfortable. I had no idea how to pose for a picture. I've always felt incredibly awkward being photographed, but she has a great eye and knew exactly what poses would work with what lightening was availble. I had a great time. She's energetic and optimistic. With her help I have a new view on how I see myself and the world around me. I see things in a new light. This experience has given me the motivation to evolve into the kind of person I want to be. I never considered doing a professional photoshoot before I met her, but I'd recommend it to anyone. It shines a new light on the perspective of how you see yourself. I think you owe it to yourself to give it chance. Don't be afraid to take risks. When you're afraid, just take a deep breath. She's got your back, and I know you'll love the results!
This photographer is amazing! He knows how to living up and pick good scenery for shoots as well as makes each Photo shoot enjoyable! This photographer really knows how to get the look he is going for and advocating it to whoever lies in the portrait. I rate Avant-Grande photography a 5, because it is really professional and well developed.
Rene was amazing for maternity and newborn photos. She was understanding and helped us figure out what worked and what didn't. She also genuinely cared about our baby and if she was uncomfortable during any photos. I would highly recommend Rene for any type of photographs.
