Nicole was a very accommodating and fun photographer to work with. Having two photographers was a treat because they were able to take photos from different perspectives of the same moments. They anticipated the moments you want to cherish and caught them with the click of a button. We were very pleased with their pricing as well as their service. I thought they did an incredible job, and I can't emphasize enough how accommodating and low stress they were to work with. They were very insightful and gave us photos that are all over my home. When I look at them, I don't just see a photo, I feel the emotions I had in that moment and it makes me happy.

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 :)

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!!

Isabel is extremely professional and very nice to work with. I have recently gained weight and I have been terribly unhappy about myself. I even have a double chin that gets in my way in pictures especially. She taught me poses for my body that made the pictures come put graceful and elegant, I actually love my pictures so much that I felt great again on being photographed without embarrassment. She is lovely, smart and very talented. I would recommend her to anyone that wants only the best!!!

Kathy is great! I needed professional head shots on very short notice and she went out of her way to accommodate my schedule. She has been a professional photographer for a long time and it shows in her work. During the 20 minute shoot she was very friendly, and very helpful in telling me what to do, how to position myself, etc in order to get the best shots. She even edited and emailed the pictures that night! If you're reading this you probably already know she also has the most competitive price for a professional photographer in the area. Thanks again Kathy!

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 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.

My experience with JZ studio was absolutely fantastic! I did a family shoot that included a newborn baby and the photographer was more than patient with us to get the photos we wanted. The pictures turned out absolutely amazing. I will definitely be working with JZ studio in the future for all my family pictures!

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!

Emil is an amazing photographer who truly cares about his clients and his work. It started snowing the morning we were scheduled to take our pictures but Emil showed up on time and did not complain once, trekking through the snow to get some amazing shots. He is extremely thorough and worked with us longer than our allocated time at no additional charge. He was extremely friendly, energetic and very hard working. Emil was easy to work with and most importantly made us feel comfortable and relaxed during our photo session. He took a nice variety of classical and artsy shots. We would definitely use Emil again and highly recommend him and Visual Etiquette.

I hired Jack for my daughter's Baptismal in Midtown, NY. Out of 3 photographers that sent their qoute, Jack's was the cheapest one. I visited each one's website and they both have nice shots. I picked Jack because of his reviews. He responded right away after I messge him. That was a month ago before the event. Two weeks before the baptism, there were changes in time, instead of 10:30 am it was moved to 8:30 am. Worrying that he will conplain or will not do the event anymore, but after I emailed him, with no complaint or hesitation, he said it's okay and still will be in the event. During the event, he came early before us (that is very professional). He introduced himself and asked me if I wanted something specific. I told him to just take pictures while the mass and the ceremony is going on. He was very good and we even received good comments about how accommodating he is. He told me to wait until Wednesday for the pictures (the event was Saturday) but I received the photos afternoon of Tuesday (one day early which is another plus). Told him to see him again in the future events. I will try to hire him in all my daughter's special events. Thank you again Jack! HIRE HIM!

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.

Jack was an absolute pleasure to work with. Although it was only our first time working together, he made me feel at ease from the very start. He is incredibly thoughtful, informative and has fantastic insight and pointers for improving overall posing and expression. Additionally, his turnaround time for edited photos was quick and as promised, which can often be an issue with photographers. I am looking forward to working with him again in the future. I would highly recommend him for portraiture, street style shoots and events.

GREAT, GREAT, GREAT! I can not recommend Danielle Heinson enough! My wife and were on a budget and posted an ad seeking a wedding photographer on Craigslist but we were nervous about doing so. We were bombarded with responses. Most of which were mediocre photographers and basically what you would expect from posting to Craigslist on a whim. Two photographers stood out to us and we in the end decided on Danielle. We could not be happier with that choice. She was an absolute joy to work with! Easy to contact with and to do so on your time. Oh, and her photos are FANTASTIC! You can not go wrong. She is very easygoing while maintaining a professional relationship. She really did a great job and we can not recommend her enough.

Though I did not get a chance to be photographed by Danielle this review is more to compliment her flexibility and thoughtfulness. I had originally planned to have a winter photo shoot for engagement photos and Danielle was ready to be available whenever the weather would cooperate. She agreed to be available with little notice which was something most photographers would never do. Unfortunately, the weather NEVER cooperated so we decided to skip the shoot. I will definitely be considering Danielle for anything I need in the future. She was fun to work with and was so open to my exact vision.

Danielle was very polite and professional. My fiancé and I we're traveling in from out of town and Danielle communicated great via email and phone. She made sure we kept in touch and was on the same page, far as plans go. Still waiting to see the final product but with the sneak peaks shots I seen on her camera was worth a million words. Amazing job well done. I highly recommend Danielle Heinson. One of Chicago's finest photographers.

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 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!

Robert was the photographer at our daughter's Batmitvah. We were excited to get a photographer of his caliber at our event. The photos from the event are outstanding and creative. The added bonus was that Robert was the consumate professional and his debonair style added to the event.

I recently hired Lauren to photograph my engagement. She went above and beyond. Her pictures turned out excellent, but what impressed me more was her professionalism. She truly cared about making sure the experience was perfect and I received everything I needed. I contacted her to make sure she was ready for us to arrive and she had been setup waiting well in advance. I had many moving parts to my proposal and I did not have to worry at all about her doing her job. It was fantastic! She was also proactive and efficient in returning my photos quickly. If you want a photographer who cares about providing a personal experience for her clients then you need to hire Lauren! She will go the extra mile.
