I am so happy that my search for an experienced and affordable photographer for our son's wedding led us to Isabel Souza. When I viewed her profile on Thumbtack, I immediately knew she was the photographer of choice after viewing 5-6 other profiles as well. From the first meeting at her studio to the final moments of photographing Steve and Ka Yu's wedding and reception, Isabel was amazing! She has a calm, quiet and very patient demeanor while endeavoring to get the most from the posers. Her style is different from the normal "stock" poses and photos you get from other wedding photographers. She is very creative and as an eye in taking photos that "say" what she sees when looking through the lens. She captures the very thoughts of the ones she is photographing. Just several days after the wedding Isabel began posting wedding photos in small batches and they were absolutely beautiful! Isabel provided us with a wonderful montage of photos of Steve and Ka Yu's wedding day that will be forever cherished. Isabel is not only an excellent photographer but she is a true artist and it was a genuine pleasure to have met her and worked with her. If you are looking for something different in your photos, I highly recommend Isabel Souza.......she will not disappoint you!!

Nicole and Jay did an excellent job capturing the important and special moments of my wedding ceremony and reception. It truly was our dream wedding and they took beautiful shots. Every time I look at my pictures I love them even more. Nicole took some artistic shots (in between a picture frame on a table) and some really beautiful shots a lake. Nicole and Jay were very friendly and accommodating to take any pictures we wanted and planned their own pictures as well. Overall, we had a great experience with them and would recommend them for your wedding photographers.

I spent a long time researching wedding photographers in my area and was hit hard by jz studio's work. After having the opportunity to meet, it was clear how their personality and passion matched their talent, these guys are a force! On our big day they were focused, professional and attentive behind the lens and so much fun during all the bits in between. Group shots were super smooth and efficient, then individual shots with my wife were just a blast. Photography was a big part of the day for us and having the talent and personality of Philip and Zack entrusted with that responsibility was a dream.

Carrie was amazing from start to finish. She took time to meet with me prior to the event, and showed me wonderful samples of her work. Carrie made sure to explain everything fully and put all worries I had about the day to rest. She is quick to respond and very open to discussing ideas. Carrie was early on the day of our wedding and worked with everyone to create beautiful memories of our day. Several of my guests commented on how fantastic our photographer was after our wedding. The final pictures that Carrie returned to us are gorgeous, and we couldn't be happier! I highly recommend Carrie- don't pass her up!!!

We hired Emil with Visual Etiquette after interviewing a few photographers for our wedding. We felt at ease with him after our first meeting. He was straight forward and to the point. He wasn’t pushy. He didn’t try to sell you some expensive photo packages that you don’t need. He did an excellent job. He was on time, professional, patient, and truly likes what he does and it shows. He made us comfortable throughout the day and made it easy to get such amazing wedding shots. He showed us how to pose which I like and the pictures came out great. We could have paid hundreds more for the beautiful pictures with someone else. I highly recommend him. Anna H.

Jack was beyond professional! My now wife and I hired Jack to do our city hall and post city hall wedding photos. He was flexible and very easy to work with. He took so many great shots and his work all proved to be beyond incredible. He was at our wedding early and stayed as long as we needed him.

Ekaterina was timely, professional, personable, and artistic in her work. We took engagement photos with her after finding her on Thumbtack. I saw the work posted on her website and was wowed at the quality and artistic creativity. We were unsure of good locations and she provided options for us to choose from and a plan B in case of rain. During the photoshoot, we admitted that we were unsure what to do and she guided us comfortably through the entire shoot. She made us feel comfortable enough to be silly and genuine and the photos came out very natural looking. The photos look beautiful (even before editing), and we have already booked her for our wedding. I look forward to booking her for graduation photos for my M. Ed. I would HIGHLY recommend her to all of my family and friends for a photographer of any type of event or occasion.

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!!!

I can't say enough wonderful things about Mark and our experience with him as our wedding photographer. Mark is amazing to work with because not only is he incredibly talented, his easy-going personality made our wedding day so much more relaxed! We connected with him instantly and he goes out of his way to capture those small, wonderful moments that would have otherwise been missed. He is truly a gifted storyteller and it shows in the amazing images he creates!

Konrad was exceptionally easy to work with! We had several specific time restrictions, split up sessions etc. and Konrad gracefully worked with us throughout all of this. He is polite, professional and friendly. My husband and I really enjoyed working with him and will definitely hire him again for future events...our daughters baptism for starters. Not only were the final pictures beautiful, we had a lot to choose from and the price was just right! We have had a ton of compliments on our wedding photos....and we love them. He captured our special day with a lot of detail and focused on just about everything and everyone. If you want a modern, kind, easygoing person to work with seriously consider Konrad, you won't be disappointed!

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!

Really love this place and highly recommend Soo Studio !! I visited Chicago from MN because I had to add a photo on my resume. Pretty sure he is a great photographer not only for wedding, but also portrait photo. I had to wear shirt and jacket for my photo ID, but unfortunately I didn't have one. However, thankfully he lent me his shirts and jackets so I could take great photos. He is also very professional doing post-editing. Very professional, nice and friendly. I really thanks for great photos. want to give this place 10 stars !!

Jim took our engagement and wedding pictures. He took the time to capture everything from the littlest of details to the parade of family shots for us. We took quite a few outdoor photos as well. He was patient with the elements and made sure to maximize nature's backdrop. We had a list of must have shots that he was happy to take but we're also very happy with what he was able to improvise. He was very professional all through the process and the end product turned out great!

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!
