Working with George from Pro Art Photo Video in 2011 for our wedding, has been absolutely the best choice we could have made. He is extremely dedicated to what he does and while he carefully listened and implemented our preferences he also brought up suggestions to the photo session when we were not sure what we wanted. Client satisfaction is his top priority and he kept us informed every step of the way, while our pictures and video were in the works. The quality of his work is superior, and on top of that he delivered the end product in a short amount of time (unlike other studios, where it can take 6 months to a year to get your pictures). I would use his services again and recommend his business wholeheartedly.

One of the best decisions we made was to hire George, the owner of Pro Art Photo Video, to provide DJ and MC services, as well as up-lighting for our wedding. Besides the fact that George is extremely detail oriented, he is also very accommodating and extremely professional. Not only does George have top of the line equipment, but he also knows how to use it. For example, any company can put up an up-light, but unless you have George’s artistic eye, that light will never achieve its full potential! The up-lighting and the light towers (those are a must for any wedding, they were amazing and we received so many compliments on them!!) completely transformed our room. With regard to the DJ and MC services provided, they were absolutely perfect. The music was so good that the dance floor was constantly full! The owners of the venue even remarked that they had never seen a wedding with so much dancing, and this is all compliments to the DJ! George has a very, very wide selection of music and most importantly, he knows the songs. He easily suggested some cool songs for cutting the cake, mother/son dance, etc. Very knowledgeable and very professional! It was a pleasure working with George and my husband and I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Thank you Oana for the review. You know that I love my job and I'm glad that I was able to provide you with great entertainment at your wedding. I'm also glad that you liked my light towers and LED lighting. It gave the banquet hall a totally different mood and look. It was an awesome wedding.

George is professional, punctual, detail-oriented, and very funny. We loved to work with him. First time when I met him, he showed me various pictures from different events, and in that moment, I knew that he is the person I want for my wedding. He is very dedicated for what he does, and we noticed that from our pictures and album. Also, before and after wedding, he kept in touch with me and informed me about every step he did regarding our pictures and album. The wedding is one of the most important event from each person's life. This is the reason for what we hired a professional, George, to immortalize the best moments from our wedding. We are very satisfied for the services provided by George!

George with Pro Art Photo-Video has been an amazing partner for ROCX (Romanian Cultural Exchange) for the past two consecutive years. He contributed to some of the most important events that our organization puts together every year: the Romanian Film Festival of Chicago and the Holiday Party and Fundraiser. From event photography, to DJ, and sound system and lighting, George's company offers a variety of services that will make any event a success. Since we are a non-profit organization, we appreciate all the help that we receive from our sponsors and partners. George is not only very professional and reliable, but he has also been very generous to us. Thank you Pro Art. We are looking forward to working with you in the future.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My pricing is very simple actually. I offer a free no obligation consultation, I assess the event and I will give a price on the spot based on the info provided and expectations from my clients. It can be per whole event or it can be per hour, it can include extras like second shooters, wedding albums, prints, website hosting, prints etc

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    When a request comes in I will usually respond via email, text or phone call within 24 hours. I'll get some basic info and if we click then I will set up in person meeting at my client's convenience as in location and timing to discuss details there in a relaxed environment. No time limit, I will answer all the questions, I will address all concern and I am willing to show all my work that is requested from me: photos, album, prints, videos, highlights etc.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I attend workshops all the time they are offered locally by famous photographers or studios, Creative Live webinars, online webinars to stay updated with the latest trends and techniques in order to offer my clients the best all the time, then I am a member of NAPP(National Association of Photoshop Professionals) and I have subscribed to the Photoshop magazine that has always the latest editing updates for my photos. This are all paid, then there are all the free videos from internet that I usually check for updates.
