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!!

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 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!

If you want a photographer who is going to do more than just take pictures Jesus Gonzalez is the person for you because he is far more than a photographer. He is an artist who has the vision to see and capture colors, lighting and energies in any scene he is photographing. His focus and priority is creating uniquely beautiful photographs for his clients either digitally, on photographic paper or even on framed canvas. HIs work comes alive through its colors and features that are enhanced in mesmerizing ways. I have seen some of his work and found it to have an unbelievable 3-dimensional effect that made me feel like I was right there in the scene. If you want ordinary pictures those photographers are a dime a dozen. But if you want quality artistic memories of your special events Jesus is the photographer you can trust to do that for you! He is worth every penny and much, much more.

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.

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!

After meeting with several photographers, she was the ONLY one my wife and i liked. Her professionalism is unlike any other - prompt with responses, super creative and pictures came on time.Geraldine has one of the biggest hearts of anyone I have ever met, and I was absolutely honored to have her play such an important role in my wedding. I can't recommend her enough.

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!

I can't say enough lovely things about All Corporate Video and Photo. Mike Kozuchowski was so fantastic to work with- I was looking for a last minute photographer for an event I was throwing only a few days before the event. Mike was nothing but professional, easy to work with and went above and beyond what was asked of him. I will definitely work with him again in the future, when another project comes up and I highly recommend to anyone that is looking for a photographer and or a videographer. Thanks Mike!

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!

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!

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!

Eric was such a fantastic hire and I highly recommend him for any type of event you're planning for. I reached out last minute for a full day conference and he replied immediately, arrived early the day of, and was a kind and professional presence throughout the day. He took a lot of initiative to be proactive about getting specific shots so I had time to focus on other details instead of checking to make sure he knew where to go. As a photographer myself, I was particularly impressed by the quality of his photos, the unique angles, and candid shots of our participants. We've used them for our website, professional development and partner outreach, and I will use him again in the future.

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.
