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!!
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.
JZ Studio captured the photos for my wedding. They arrived early on my special day and dressed very professional, I was impressed. They use excellent photography equipment and have a great flash set up in order to avoid shadows or darkness on the face. Not many photographers can get bright, vivid photos of my husband because of his very dark skin tone but JZ Studio did a perfect job achieving the photos I have always wanted to see! All the pictures turned out very crisp and clear. The color is perfect. Philip was very patient with my active 6 year old son. JZ Studio edited the photos wonderfully to enhance the natural beauty of the photo not to change it out of its original character. The turn around time between the photo shoot and receiving the photo is short. I am so very happy that we choose JZ Studio to capture our wedding ceremony because we will now be able to have our memories for a lifetime and share them with all our friends and family. Their photography is something I'm proud to hang on the walls in my home. I highly recommend JZ Studio for any photography needs that you have. I couldn't be more pleased with them.
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!!
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!
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.
After doing a bit of looking around and speaking with many photographers, I selected Zachera to shoot my engagement and I could not have made a better choice. Zachera's enthusiasm, flexibility, and knowledge made a milestone day in mine and my fiancé's life a dream come true. She captured the joy, excitement, and if I'm to be honest nervous energy beautifully all while making us feel completely at ease it the post-proposal photo shoot. If you want important moments captured beautifully on film to reflect upon for life, you need to contact Zachera, I promise you will not be disappointed. I know I sure wasn't!
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!
I've had headshots done in my past with not so great photographers so when I was looking of a new photographer I was feeling kinda worried about who to chose but I am beyond thankful my friend recommended Mike Sansone Photography to me! Such an unforgettable experience. Mike is very good at what he does and makes you feel so comfortable/ confident behind the camera! Needless to say if you need new headshots done I highly recommend Mike!!
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!
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.
I've had the pleasure of working with Abbey on several occasions. Most recently, she took photos of my impromptu civil wedding. She met my partner and I at city hall equipped with two bouquets of roses and ready to shoot. She captured the emotion of the moment despite the mundane setting and made a trip to the courthouse feel like a beautifully orchestrated wedding ceremony. If you're looking for a pro photographer with outstanding customer service, look no further; Abbey is the professional for you!
Kristine is an outstanding photographer and an even better person. She was genuinely concerned and offered to reshoot when I seemed less enthusiastic about our holiday shot of the children than a family picture. It took me a short while to realize she indeed had a great pic for our cards. She surprised me by adding a beautiful picture of the family shot in my package of pictures. I hope to return the favor and refer my friends and wholeheartedly recommend Kristine to anyone interested in a first rate photo session.
Sally is a wonderful, artistic, creative photographer with a unique perspective that results in captivating, dynamic photos. One thing I love about working with her is that she lets me look at the shots as we go, adjust, and offer suggestions. She has a commitment to excellence that makes her the best.
Ekaterina was timely, professional, personable, and artistic in her work. We took engagement photos with her after finding her on Thumbtack. I saw the work posted on her website and was wowed at the quality and artistic creativity. We were unsure of good locations and she provided options for us to choose from and a plan B in case of rain. During the photoshoot, we admitted that we were unsure what to do and she guided us comfortably through the entire shoot. She made us feel comfortable enough to be silly and genuine and the photos came out very natural looking. The photos look beautiful (even before editing), and we have already booked her for our wedding. I look forward to booking her for graduation photos for my M. Ed. I would HIGHLY recommend her to all of my family and friends for a photographer of any type of event or occasion.
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!
This was our first family photo session with our 6 month old. I also had Konrad take professional photos for me. I could not have asked for a better photographer! Konrad was easy to work with from our first call where he asked a lot of great questions, to working through location challenges the day of, to engaging our son so he could get great shots. He brought his assistant who was amazing at suggesting poses and giving guidance. We are so pleased with our images and look forward to having him as our photographer going forward.
Michael is an incredibly talented photographer and genuine nice guy. He had great energy, took a variety of shots, and was committed to the entire process. I also appreciate his quick turn-around time with tons of pictures to choose from. I highly recommend Michael to anyone who is need of an event photographer.
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!
What an incredible girl and talented photographer. I highly recommend her for any job (big or small), our memories will last a lifetime thanks to Lauren!
Dakota was prompt with getting us our “sneak peak” photo’s from our event. The ones we’ve received are such great quality pictures. He was on time and less expensive than other photographers I looked at. We had 430+ people at our event and he was able to handle it without a problem! Thanks Dakota!
