I found Carrie on thumbtack and she was professional yet so much fun to work with! My 3 mo old was stunned by the big camera & would not smile. Carrie pulled out all the stops to try to coax a smile from him & get a couple. Her artistic eye & creative positioning were much appreciated as I am an artist myself. I felt she listened to my input & took it into account. She was a pleasure to work with & I would highly recommend her. Plus her pricing was very reasonable. So many photographers charge way too much for digital photos and that's why I did not go with them. Plus she came to my house! I can honestly say it was a fun and stress free experience thanks to her!!
Agnes arrived early. Emil happened to be along so we had TWO photographers! They were so professional and captured everything we asked and much more. They filled the entire two hours of the contract with a constant stream of photos. We were so satisfied we cut the cake early and let Agnes go on to her next event -- we couldn't imagine anything else to be captured. We'd very highly recommend Emil and Agnes!!
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!
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.
Kimia was absolutely perfect. She was patient, observant, friendly, respectful and just all around amazing! She managed to capture every important aspect of my wedding and I could not be happier! Thank you so much Kamia for capturing one of the most important days of my life on camera ! You're a Rockstar!!!!
We were running short on time to find a photographer for our wedding. We found George, he was suggested to us. We could not have asked for a better photographer we had kids there and he was great with the kids very patient with them too. George is very good with the camera he came up with several great ideas on the fly, also managed to capture several vital moments at our courthouse wedding when there was little to no time to do so. If you're looking for a great photographer look no further than George. Thanks again, George!
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!
If you're like me, then you heavily base purchasing goods and services on reviews. I take feedback from others very seriously, so if you do as well but don't have time to read my full review just know - the WS Photography team were my FAVORITE vendor of my entire wedding and you just need to hire them now! If you do have time to read my full review, read on for more details. When I first found WS photography, I couldn't believe that such an amazing photographer was A. available for my wedding date and B. such an affordable price. I was in such disbelief that I showed their work to two of my friends who are professional photographers and graphic designers and they reassured me that WS was an excellent choice and had stellar portfolios. From our initial talks, I learned that Ana and Milan had only been in Chicago for a short time but have been shooting weddings around the world for years. Ana was so accommodating during our first talk and even sent over a mock timeline to help me with my decision making. After I hired them the communication was still amazing and we settled on a timeline that worked for all of us since my husband and I were doing a first look and shooting all the photos beforehand. Ana even helped me talk through saving time and money by letting Milan scout out places to take cool photos outside the venue instead of trying to get everyone on a shuttle to go downtown. The day of the Wedding, WS did not disappoint. They were on time and friendly from the beginning and got straight to work. They gave great direction and made everyone in our bridal party feel so comfortable. When we didn't know how to pose or what to do, they gave us direction and sometimes even moved us into the ideal places we needed to be! I think WS will be one of the busiest photographers in Chicago very quickly so do yourself a favor and get on their calendar NOW! The work and service are unmatched and you'll be extremely happy to have them capture your big day!
We had a great experience with Tony. He arrived early which was nice to not have to worry about where's my photographer? I had looked through portfolios of other photographers and just really like his style. Although it was a little more than the other quotes I feel I was well worth it. The other examples I saw were pretty average. You can tell that Tony has a lot of experience with photography. My pictures turned out great and he got them done so fast! I would highly recommend this company for your photography needs!
Fantastic! Vic was on time at the venue. He was well prepared for the event photography and was ready to take pictures of each and every moment. I will definitely recommend him to anyone who needs photography! Did a great job!! Family and friends were very happy with his photography skills! Thank u so much Vic!
Mark and Phil photographed our wedding in July 2017. They were extremely fun and easy to work with. Their professional eye for lighting and detail allowed for unique and elegant photos. Retiro Photo captured our special day, and gave us memories we will always cherish. I would (and do) recommend them for anyone looking for modern, fresh photographers!
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!
Maria is very profesional and patient. I’m still in awe of the pictures that she took for our sons fourth birthday. We highly recommend her, you will not be disappointed!
Used Tom for our wedding upon the recommendation of our photographer. His work was amazing and he was very easy to deal with and his demeanor was always professional. Would highly recommend!
Hope is a great photographer and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. She was able to pick out some great locations and execute perfectly. My favorite picture was of my dog and I. It was an action shot and turned out so well. I'll continue refering friends and family to Chloe, she's great!
Great pictures of a great moment in our life. She was very professional and has a great eye and perspective to capture the very best of the moment. Thanks for your great work !
We drove all the way from Columbus OH to Chicago IL and work with him and already mean something.Me and my girlfriend hired Dalibor to do a professional photo shooting for the proposal and we didn't make a mistake.we seriously thinking to work with him again on our wedding.He did the job perfectly,very professional and he has really nice personality.The picture were amazing.I had different experience with different photographers but not many of them artists like Dalibor. Thanks a lot,you have our recommendations ... Filip&Lidija
Zainab has been awesome to work with! She is super understanding and accommodating of your needs. She makes you feel super comfortable during your photoshoots and meets you halfway on everything. I am extremely happy that she is my photographer for my wedding day :)
Chris was awesome!! We felt very comfortable with him and his directions and he wasn't afraid to speak up and give people advice to have them look their best. We received lots of compliments from family and friends in our wedding party for his professionalism and overall ability to get everyone moving and in the shots... Not always easy with a large family and 20 people in the wedding party! My sister (who has stood up in A LOT of weddings) said he was by far the best photographer she had worked with! We would definitely recommend him to friends and family in the future! Please tell him we said thank you again for capturing our special day.
My fiance and I had the pleasure of working with Kayl for our engagement photos. I was nervous thinking it could be awkward as we had never experienced a "photo shoot" before. However, Kayl was so professional and made us feel as though it was all natural- even when there were times of question she immediately told us what to do to in order to keep things on track. To top it off, our photos were absolutely stunning!!! We are still receiving compliments from our friends and family- in response I simply say, "we owe it all to our photographer." I cannot say enough wonderful things about our photos as well as Kayl's character and professionalism. We were so lucky to have Kayl capture such a special time in our lives and we will be forever grateful for her talent and artistry! THANK YOU KAYL!
