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.
I don't think I can say enough good things about Jay and Nicole. From the consultation to the wedding and even after, Jay and Nicole have been absolutely amazing. They made everything simple and they were super quick at responding to my every email...brides...lol Jay was my photographer on my wedding day and everyone loved him, it felt like he was a family friend that was doing us a favor but way more professional and a way better photographer. He stayed after hours too to grab a drink and hang out. I mean cmon, who does that? Most just want to get home and call it a day. I would work with them again in a heart beat and plan to, if I am in need of a photographer in the future. Thank you guys so much for all your hard work.
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!
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!
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!
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.
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.
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
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!
We loved absolutely EVERYTHING about working with Mark Burch from Retiro Photography. He was extremely organized, easy to work with, and not to mention, a BLAST! As the bride, he made the wedding day go smoothly and made sure we were on time, which was one thing I thought I was going to stress about. He made up an itinerary of our wedding day months in advance which included pictures of the bridal party prior to the ceremony, pictures immediately following the wedding ceremony with specific family members, and the timing of pictures taken at locations prior to the reception. When we met up with Mark before our engagement photo session, my husband and I could really sense his passion and enthusiasm for photography, which made it even easier to hire him. He was extremely easy to work with throughout the whole wedding process, from before engagement pictures up to the wedding day. He communicated very well with us throughout our entire engagement. Our engagement photo session was amazing and we could not be happier with how the photos turned out. So far, we have only gotten a preview of our wedding photos, but what we've seen so far has exceeded our expectations. We are so happy we hired Mark!
Konrad is a true professional. He was responsive, efficient, punctual and very easy to work with. He did a full 5 hour session of posed and candid pictures for my 40th Birthday and turned the pictures around in a little over a week and they were great! I was nervous about using thumbtack for the first time but Konrad exceeded all of my expectations. I would definitely hire him again!
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!

Lori and Shaun we're absolutely amazing!!! They made sure to capture my list of special photos and were there for all of the special wedding first looks with my father and new husband. I didn't have many ideas but Lori was creative and brought us some great photos ideas!! I can't wait to see our final pics!!! And the photo booth was a hit!! My friends and family are still raving about it!!! Thanks so much Lori for capturing my special night!! 😘😘
LaShinda was one of the reasons our wedding was amazing! My family, wedding party, and my spouse fell in love with her the minute we met her! Our videographer cancelled an hour before our special day and she took over capturing every important moment of our special day! We would refer her to ANYONE looking for high class and amazing photography! As our wedding was at a casino, she was able to showcase our family, friends, and event in a FUN, CLASSY way that we will never forget! SIMPLY THE BEST!!!!! :-)
Blair photographed our Daughter's Bat Mitzvah last night! She was so easy to work with. She just posted some photos from the evening (both the service and party) and so far they look great! We can't wait to see them all! Thanks so much Blair!!!!
Veera was an amazing photographer, I just received my pictures and they look amazing, my family and I was so impressed with the results. Veera was very professional and super accommodating. He was very understanding when we were running behind schedule, and suggested awesome poses for the wedding party and the family pictures. I am so glad I went with Veera for my big day, and I would definitely recommend him to everyone.
Beth has been an absolute blessing to us planning our wedding. She is much more than a photographer she comes up with unbelievable ideas and is helping me plan every aspect of my special day. Her creativity is above excellent!! I would highly recommend her to anyone. She has taken the worry and stress out of planning for my wedding and her photography skills speak for themselves!! Thank you Beth!!
I had Rafay do the photography for my niece's birthday. He was incredibly kind and friendly. I didn't have to mention what to take pictures of, which was really nice. For the cake cutting ceremony, Rafay stayed close enough to take his shots but blended into the background so our guests were not bothered. Everything went smoothly and I was very happy with the outcome. The quality of the photos were excellent and they were given to us in a timely manner. I was very pleased with Rafay and I will definitely be a customer again in the future.
The photo and video quality is great, but what is even better is how creative Anthony is. We hired him for our daughter's 1st birthday party and we now have a creative video to relive that great moment for a lifetime. He was very professional but more than anything passionate about what he does! Will definitely hire him again!
