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.

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.

I hired Jack for my daughter's Baptismal in Midtown, NY. Out of 3 photographers that sent their qoute, Jack's was the cheapest one. I visited each one's website and they both have nice shots. I picked Jack because of his reviews. He responded right away after I messge him. That was a month ago before the event. Two weeks before the baptism, there were changes in time, instead of 10:30 am it was moved to 8:30 am. Worrying that he will conplain or will not do the event anymore, but after I emailed him, with no complaint or hesitation, he said it's okay and still will be in the event. During the event, he came early before us (that is very professional). He introduced himself and asked me if I wanted something specific. I told him to just take pictures while the mass and the ceremony is going on. He was very good and we even received good comments about how accommodating he is. He told me to wait until Wednesday for the pictures (the event was Saturday) but I received the photos afternoon of Tuesday (one day early which is another plus). Told him to see him again in the future events. I will try to hire him in all my daughter's special events. Thank you again Jack! HIRE HIM!

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!

Mike has a great way with people, putting them at ease to get excellent results. We appreciate his flexibility and desire to get shots that people can truly be proud of. I've met many headshot photographers over the years, and I consider Mike to be among the best of them.

I hired Nikki to take photographs of a painting which was located in her local area. From the get go, Nikki was ON TOP of this project, coordinating with museum personnel, keeping me posted and making recommendations. Lastly, she used her flawless photographic skills to provide me with FAR MORE than what I expected! She is a true professional and I highly recommend her!

Kristine took headshots for my daughter for an upcoming theater audition at her college. I couldn't have asked for more beautiful or professional photos. She took a variety of poses and expressions in front of real backgrounds and really brought out the personality of my child. Kristine has also been the eighth-grade portrait photographer at my children's school for a number of years. The children look like angels in her pictures. Her portraits of my oldest two children are treasured by my kids. You can't go wrong with Kristine. She is the best!

Robert did a wonderful job with the family portrait. The pictures turned out better than I expected! My only regret is not bringing my dogs with to include them in the picture. Maybe next time!

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!

Michael was professional and courteous and clearly knew his business. He communicated clearly over the course of our two day event and snapped some unforgettable photos that added life to a relatively reserved conference. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a professional photographer, particularly if they’re hosting a multi-stage event as we did.

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!

Really love this place and highly recommend Soo Studio !! I visited Chicago from MN because I had to add a photo on my resume. Pretty sure he is a great photographer not only for wedding, but also portrait photo. I had to wear shirt and jacket for my photo ID, but unfortunately I didn't have one. However, thankfully he lent me his shirts and jackets so I could take great photos. He is also very professional doing post-editing. Very professional, nice and friendly. I really thanks for great photos. want to give this place 10 stars !!

Words cannot express how much we enjoyed our experience with Lauren! She went above and beyond being a photopher. Her positive attitude, the help she gave with other details, her suggestions of things I would have never even thought about...she in a word was amazing! The photos we've seen so far surpass anything I could have expected. Candid, sweet, fun moments. Thoughtful, endearing pictures that speak a thousand words. Ifor ever I need a photographer again, if I ever hear of someone needing a photographer...she will definitely be my recommendation. She made my wedding day a fairy tale!
