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!!

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 :)

We had looked and talked to many photographers before we found Carrie and we love her style which is very delightful, fun and romantic. Carrie is experienced and very creative to capture the beautiful and meaningful moments. We just got the photos from her today and we are impressed by the great job she did. Personally i'm a little bit picky and demanding with the professional photos but Carrie did win me. We really appreciate her help and would love to recommend people to this modern delightful photograph style.

Hired VisualEtiquette as our wedding photographer and the engagement session was included in the package. We just received our engagement photos back and could not be more pleased. Emil was able to capture every moment, many un-posed and many posed. He has great ideas that he will share with you, but also encourages you to bring your own style and props if that is the route you want to go. Friends and Family are raving about the photos, saying they are some of the best engagement photos they've ever seen! VisualEtiquette has competitive pricing yet exceptionally better quality compared to some of the very high priced photographers we interviewed while choosing our vendors. Emil is a busy photographer, so it sometimes takes 2-3 days for him to get back to me, but he never fails to answer our questions.

Though I did not get a chance to be photographed by Danielle this review is more to compliment her flexibility and thoughtfulness. I had originally planned to have a winter photo shoot for engagement photos and Danielle was ready to be available whenever the weather would cooperate. She agreed to be available with little notice which was something most photographers would never do. Unfortunately, the weather NEVER cooperated so we decided to skip the shoot. I will definitely be considering Danielle for anything I need in the future. She was fun to work with and was so open to my exact vision.

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!!

I engaged Kristine to do head shots for my new business. I would highly recommend her. She was fun and professional, came to my house and took photos in the comfort of my own home. I was in a rush to get a headshot for a deadline which she generously accommodated. I was very happy with the final product, never knew I could look so good! Affordable too!

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.

Ed is one of the nicest, most professional, reliable and helpful people I ever had an opportunity to work with. He went above and beyond in every way possible. I was running the shoot from another city and he helped me so much by finding and booking a location, working with a talent, finding affordable equipment to rent, calling in during the shoot so I could help direct it. I am looking forward to working with Ed and his team again. He is truly a rare individual. Can't say enough good things about working with him.

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!

I had an excellent experience with Josh Tortuga. First of all, he was early to the photoshoot. You would not have to worry about the photographer being late to your photoshoot/event. He acted very professional while taking pictures, and was very respectful. The pictures were top notch. They were delivered to me within a day of the pictures being taken. It was impressive on how quickly the photos were delivered. Overall, I would definitely recommend this photographer to other people.
