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.

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!

Kathy understood how to deal with two very energetic little boys, one with special needs. She was able to capture their energy and happiness. She did amazing things with Photoshop and gave me a complete family picture including "shadow children " images of my two children that passed away in infancy. Everyone who sees the pictures Kathy has done is amazed. Thank you so much Kathy!! I will definitely call you next year for the boys 7th birthday pictures!

Jesus and his family were hired to photograph my parent's 50th wedding anniversary party. They were all extremely professional. He did very well engaging every one so that they felt comfortable. They took so many photos. We are still going through some of them again! The slideshow was the best! I would highly recommend them!

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.

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!

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.

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!

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!".

David is a true visionary. He has a gift for taking an idea and creatively bring it to life through photography, technology and the arts. David was the photographer for my wedding. Or rather I should say the visionary for my wedding. My Wedding album and wall photography are so beautiful! I truly enjoyed working with him and watching him create artistically. He is a great listener, has great insight and phenomenal skills. He worked closely with my husband and I to assure our satisfaction. I highly recommend Didomi Design and Photography. I will be working with him shortly, again, on another project!

I have worked with a number of photographers over my 40 year as a clay artist, and Lane Cameron is , by far the best of any of them as far as professionalism and quality of his work. The work was done in and around my studio in suburban Chicago. Lane spent most of an afternoon on the job, and I cannot think of anything that could have been done better. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for quality work done in a skilled and professional manner

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 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!

I found Ryan on Thumbtack and between offering to take photos with his drone and his palpable excitement for shooting our venue, it was a no brainer to hire him. Ryan and his second shooter were really great! They showed up at the hotel where we were getting ready and immediately got started! We were running a bit behind and requested a late checkout of the hotel. An hour after what was supposed to be our already late checkout, we were still there - luckily, it turned out that Ryan was the next guest to stay in the room so he was very accommodating letting us stay late! Ryan’s team did an awesome job on the few pictures I’ve seen so far - I’m SO excited to see the rest! My husband made multiple comments about how they seemed to be everywhere at once capturing our memories so we could enjoy the day! They even pulled us away a few times during the reception to get more shots during the sunset that turned out absolutely beautiful! Not only did they do an incredible job of directing us and our bridal party for the group photos (which I’m sure was like herding cats) but they truly went above and beyond by bringing some fun props (smoke bombs and sparklers). Those photos turned out great and I’m so thankful that they had the foresight to bring them! The day went by so fast. Ryan, thank you so much for being there to preserve it! Ps I’m not sure why the photos are uploading sideways...sorry!

It was almost a year ago to take my son's 1st birthday party and birthday photos. They did a amazing job! It was an unforgettable moment and they took every moments of baby's unexpected movements. At the beginning my son could not focus on the camera, but he looked to be very happy to take the photo shoot around 10 minutes later. They made the environment very warm and happy. We could enjoy the time with my son. Also have various styles clothes for baby and kids. We brought our own clothes, but we didn't use ours. Theirs were better for photo. The backgrounds were also adorable. When we received the frame and album, it's good quality and happy to see it again and again. Almost every month we have kept opening the album and remembering the moment. I highly recommend this studio. You will not regret your choice at all. Visit the studio and see what you can get.
