What can I say about Nicole and Jay! They have become not only our favorite photographers but our new friends. They are so easy and comfortable to work with, we felt like we knew them for years. Every pose, every location produced such an amazing photo. Turn around time and email responses were so super quick! And the photos of our engagement session and wedding day left us breathless--so so amazing and beautiful! Working with The Still Life is the best decision we made for our wedding day :)
Carrie is amazing! We hired her as our wedding photographer in 2016 and she has since become our family photographer! In addition to our wedding, we have used her for birthday parties and also 2 Christmas card photos, she even gets my dogs to pose! Carrie is amazing!
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.
Visual Ettiquette's lead photographer, Emil, is an AMAZING photographer and choosing to work with him was one of the best decisions about our wedding!!! My wife and I hired Emil to shoot our photos for our recent wedding in Downtown Chicago. First off, Emil is hands down a great guy who talked with us over the phone before the wedding discussing all the details of our wedding day and offered up some great suggestions for where to shoot around the city. On the day of the wedding he promptly arrived on time, even with all of the crazy Chicago traffic that morning. His warm heart, charming personality, and artistic eye made shooting with him super fun and relaxed. Shooting with him was actually one of the highlights of our day when we went around Chicago getting photographed in the snow around Grant Park and the Planetarium. I can still remember Emil running around (yes actually running) in order to find all the artistic angles to take our photos. He even stood on frozen Lake Michigan to get us the best shots of what ended up looking like photos the wedding photos of our dreams. Oh yeah and for all this, he is 1/4 the price we were quoted by other artistic photographers. Emil gets my wife and I's highest recommendation!!! If you want top notch artistic wedding photography that is still affordable, Emil is your guy! I never knew my wife could be such a supermodel until Emil photographed her!
Kathy did an amazing job with our family pictures. We had a large group and needed several smaller group photos as well as large ones with 15+ people. She was so patient with us when it took some a while to arrive and also when trying to take pictures of the kids who didn't want to sit still. I would highly recommend Kathy to anyone needing a photographer. :)
I am absolutely 100% satified with Martika P. Gartman Photography. I have hired many Event Photographers for both Family and Church Events over the years. However, I must say that Martika P. Gartman Photography is the "best" Event Photographer that I have ever seen with my own eyes. She knew "exactly" how to pose and line up persons for photographs. She took her time, and the Event photographs are excellent "keep-sakes" for everyone attending the Church Event to hear my daughter, Dr. Sheri Prentiss, give a presentation about her newly published book," WHEN EVERYTHING CHANGED: MY JOURNEY FROM PHYSICIAN TO PATIENT", an inspiring book about Dr. Sheri as a breast cancer survivor. Thank you, Thumbtack Staff for making the "contact" between myself and Martika P. Gartman Photography.
As a photographer myself (no longer in the industry) I know exactly what I am looking for and Jack more than surpassed our expectations. After learning that our "regular" photographer for our fashion campaigns (for social media), had unexpectedly left the country, we were in a time crunch :( There were many challenges throughout the shoot, (None related to the photographer) our location which was booked online did not meet expectations, the outdoor location was barren and the day was extra windy etc. These things happen. However Jack's timely and professional demeanor saved the day. He is very skilled at problem solving and knows his stuff. What we thought was a brightly lit space was not, thankfully Jack was prepared to deal with the lighting issues. Once we received our images we could not be more thankful! Most photographers can get decent shots in a perfect location with all the time in the world. But it takes an amazing photographer to turn the worst of situations dealt to him around and have it so you never knew there were any challenges. We are planning to have Jack be our go to photog from now on.
I couldn't have asked for a better photographer! Kimia is very professional yet she feels like a very good friend! She will always update you through email/text and I always get a reply from her right away! She took my pictures in downtown Chicago and she picked out beautiful locations to take the photos. I had so much fun with her and I would 100% recommend everyone to hire Kimia!! Not only does she focus on detail, she is also very knowledgable about photography and she knows how to get the perfect natural lighting/angle in every picture. She made me feel comfortable and it was easy to express myself! All the pictures turned out amazing and I have never been more satisfied in the results! Her pricing is also very reasonable compared to other photographers in the area who charge almost double! She is perfect for portraits, weddings, family photoshoots, senior portraits, headshots, etc...! Her work is absolutely amazing and I will definitely be working with her again in the future! Thank you Kimia for a wonderful experience!
Mike has a great way with people, putting them at ease to get excellent results. We appreciate his flexibility and desire to get shots that people can truly be proud of. I've met many headshot photographers over the years, and I consider Mike to be among the best of them.
Nicole responded to my request for a family photographer on short notice. She was easy to work with and the pictures turned out wonderfully. Would recommend if you are looking for a local photographer!
Abby was great! Highly recommend for family photos.
Sally was wonderful from the beginning. Upon arriving to her studio she was pleasant and welcoming. I was a bit apprehensive about having my picture taken for headshots. Sally made all of that go away! The photos turned out wonderful too. We had some wonderful natural light to work with and she did a phenomenal job on my makeup. I HIGHLY recommend Sally as a photographer. She has an extensive portfolio which you should take a look at. I plan on having more photos taken in the future as well as referring Sally to all my friends and family. You can't go wrong with her.
I needed a professional headshot photo in a short timeframe. Since I never had professional photos done before and had no idea how to find a good professional in order to help me out, I was initially relatively intimidated by the process. Looking up the websites from several photographers, most were only advertising wedding and recreational photography services. Robert put me at ease from the very beginning, showing me some sample headshots he took and explaining me the whole process as well as what I could expect. During all of my interactions with Robert, he has been very professional. Also, it is obvious that he is passionate by what he is doing. He overall did exceed my original expectations, delivering some excellent headshots in a very short timeframe!
Milan and Jelena were amazing! They were so professional and knew exactly what to do. Honestly, we were a little nervous looking for a photographer - we didn't know who to trust. All of the Chicago wedding photographers were either out of our budget or something was a little off when we would meet with them or speak with them on the phone. We read a lot of good reviews and met with Jelena at a coffee shop briefly. We got a good feeling so we decided to go with WS photography. I am so glad that we did! We LOVE our wedding photos! If you're unsure about hiring Milan and his team, don't be. They are great and you will not be disappointed!
This year is my year. I decided to join a dating site. I know that the process starts with a great picture. You simply have to put your best foot forward. Well, I needed a photographer who understood my objective. Tony understood exactly what I wanted to achieve and he gave me many options for profile picture. I did not know which one to select. We went to two different locations with three wardrobe changes in the rain. He offered to reschedule and re shoot if the pictures were not what I wanted. He was very professional and efficient. His initial contact was within minutes of my request for proposal. He returned the finished product to me less than 48 hours later. I had many pictures from which to select. He then did additional clean up on my main photo. I think I have found a new photographer for my family.
Could not have had a better experience with a photographer. Harry was responsive to my initial requests, was punctual, took candid and nice quality photos of our events (trust me, this is not always the case, even with professional photographers!), he sent me the pics quickly, and top of all that, he generously donated to our cause!
Michael was professional and courteous and clearly knew his business. He communicated clearly over the course of our two day event and snapped some unforgettable photos that added life to a relatively reserved conference. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a professional photographer, particularly if they’re hosting a multi-stage event as we did.
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!
We really had a great time taking summer pictures with Lauren... she made it easy for the family ... our pictures have come out great!! Lauren was very professional, on time and delivered the pictures to us before the due date.... we will be doing another session in fall wirh her...
This review is a bit overdue but no less true! I received a recommendation for Studio Soo from a friend who had her daughters 1 year old photos done by Soo. I called Soo to discuss a newborn shoot for my son who was already 6 weeks (a little old for the newborn shoot) and he gave me the wonderful suggestion of waiting for the first smile to happen and then to schedule so that we would get more personality captured in our photos. He was right on with this suggestion and I am so glad we waited several more weeks. Our photos are stunning!! We love every single shot and to be honest it was so hard to narrow down which ones we wanted in our final package because they were all simply wonderful. Everyone that has seen our photos is blown away by the quality of the images and the beautiful backdrops. Now let me tell you, I was nervous as we waited for the initial first look at the photos because my son was cranky and sleepy through most of our hour, but Soo worked his magic and literally captured the sweetest moments. He is truly talented. Soo was professional throughout, giving us good direction and suggestions of what would look good. In total we did four different backdrops and a family photo. We were given extremely fair pricing for all that we purchased and it is safe to say we now have a family photographer that we will be using again and again! Thank you Studio Soo!!!
Laurie was such a great photographer. We had her for our San Francisco kids birthday party. She captured every moment and covered more than 50-60 kids each having their special moments. She even climbed into the bouncy house to take picture of them while playing. We would love to work with her again.
