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 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.

Steven is a very enjoyable, extremely talented photographer. I worked with Steven on a outdoor, Autumn-themed photo shoot in 2013, and I had a blast. During the shoot, Steven was friendly, lively, and full of amazing ideas. The photos that resulted from the shoot are gorgeous portraits that I was excited to use on my website and for other promotional materials. Steven also has an enormous amount of experience with event photography. I was lucky enough to be a subject in many of Steven's event photos from the Bristol Renaissance Faire. Gorgeous photos that capture the colors, energy and liveliness of the streets of Bristol. I could have not asked for a better experience with a a more lovely person. I would definitely recommend Steven as a photographer to any of my friends looking for portrait, event, and promotional photography.

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 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 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.

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 HIGHLY recommend Sally as a photographer. She has an extensive portfolio which you should take a look at. I plan on having more photos taken in the future as well as referring Sally to all my friends and family. You can't go wrong with her.

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!

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!

Freddy's professionalism, knowledge/skills, and the ability to create a warm and exciting environment is everything you want in a photographer! As someone who is very shy and finds being in front of a camera extremely vulnerable, Freddy's energy allowed me to relax, have fun, and feel confident. Beyond happy with my experience!

We used Miroslaw Pomian Photography twice for family pictures. I remain impressed with his professionalism and how easy it was to feel comfortable during the photo shoot. Pomian definitely has a talented and artistic eye, which resulted in some fantastic shots of my family. I have many of the pictures hanging throughout our house and always receive compliments on how great they are - they look like pictures in a magazine but capture the realness of our family too. I especially love many of the images he took in black and white. Cost was also reasonable and worth the pictures we will treasure forever.
