Such a talented photographer. We couldn't be happier with the end product for my daughter's headshots. Turn around time was unbelievably fast! Will definitely work with Karolina in the future. Professional, affordable, personable (helped put my daughter at ease as she was a bit nervous). Excellent!!

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 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!!

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.

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.

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.

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!

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 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'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!!

The Maestro Media did an amazing job capturing all the special moments of our wedding day. We could not be happier with their work. Videographer, Mark Condra, was there working right alongside the photographer, capturing every imaginable detail. He worked so well with us and with our other vendors, helping the day go exactly as planned. The final products are videos we cherish and will use in the years to come to relive our wedding day. They gave us a copy of the full ceremony, footage of the toasts & first dances, a surprise shoutout video from friends & family (which we loved watching on our honeymoon) and such a creative, catchy highlight video that truly depicts the vibe of the whole day. Maestro Media was so quick in getting the final products to us. We won't hesitate to highly recommend them to friends and family looking for a talented, professional videographer.

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.

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.
