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 and Jay did an excellent job capturing the important and special moments of my wedding ceremony and reception. It truly was our dream wedding and they took beautiful shots. Every time I look at my pictures I love them even more. Nicole took some artistic shots (in between a picture frame on a table) and some really beautiful shots a lake. Nicole and Jay were very friendly and accommodating to take any pictures we wanted and planned their own pictures as well. Overall, we had a great experience with them and would recommend them for your wedding photographers.

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.

We hired Emil with Visual Etiquette after interviewing a few photographers for our wedding. We felt at ease with him after our first meeting. He was straight forward and to the point. He wasn’t pushy. He didn’t try to sell you some expensive photo packages that you don’t need. He did an excellent job. He was on time, professional, patient, and truly likes what he does and it shows. He made us comfortable throughout the day and made it easy to get such amazing wedding shots. He showed us how to pose which I like and the pictures came out great. We could have paid hundreds more for the beautiful pictures with someone else. I highly recommend him. Anna H.

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.

50th Wedding Anniversary Party--Abbey Prow was wonderful. She was unobtrusive in taking pictures and captured the essence of our celebration. We recommend her highly and would use her photographic services again when the event requires a true professional.

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!

WS Photography - WOW, just wow! Milan, Ana and Jelena are three incredible people to work with and I am so happy we had them for our engagement and wedding photos. They truly have a magical gift of capturing and producing your moments. Their type of photography is such an art and it was exactly what I was looking for in choosing a photographer. I am so grateful that I found them. Words alone are not enough to show my appreciation for their exquisite talent. I had a wonderful experience working with WS Photography and I would highly recommend them to any couple looking for wedding photographers. We had a late engagement session since I had braces until a month before our wedding and they were so quick to turn around and send us photos a week later so we could use some at our wedding. I didn't ask for that but they surprised me with that kind gesture. We had so much fun at our wedding with them by our side. We contracted to have WS Photography stay later and they also surprised us with a video to capture our sparkler send off. Another incredibly kind gesture that I did not anticipate or expect! I have to laugh since their email joked to remember they were only photographers, but it just warmed my heart that they captured that send off with our friends and family with a short clip and beautiful photographs. I gave them the biggest hugs at the end of the night. We just received our wedding photos and we could not be any more happier. It was incredible to live our day again as we viewed these photos. These are treasured moments my husband, family and I will have forever, so thank you, thank you and thank you! We are so excited to see the wedding album once it is done. It was such a pleasure to have you part of these chapters in our lives. They have a great team and an excellent business. I wish them the best on their growth in Chicago! Your team is truly special!

I can't say enough lovely things about All Corporate Video and Photo. Mike Kozuchowski was so fantastic to work with- I was looking for a last minute photographer for an event I was throwing only a few days before the event. Mike was nothing but professional, easy to work with and went above and beyond what was asked of him. I will definitely work with him again in the future, when another project comes up and I highly recommend to anyone that is looking for a photographer and or a videographer. Thanks Mike!

I am so glad we went with Life on Prints for our wedding photographer. We loved working Tony and Michelle - they were able to get all of the requested family photos, and still got many creative shots. We just got our online gallery and the photos turned out beautiful! Can't wait to see our album and order prints!

Vic was one of our favorite vendors, if not our best for our wedding. This review is long overdue (almost a year) but I just had to leave a review. He is tremendously easy to work with, he's tireless in his work and most importantly got the job done. I asked him for the raw files on a usb drive that I provided and he was perfectly fine with that too. Some studios charge a fortune just for that service! He provides tremendous value and does the work of 2 to 3 people. He's very flexible in his dealings and will work with you until you are satisfied. Our wedding photographer was admittedly a bit bossy but Vic was able to work around her and avoided any wedding day drama that could ruined the day. I'll recommend him anytime someone asks for suggestions on a videographer. A lot of the videographers on thumbtack didn't match the type of style we were looking for and to be honest they were just too cheesy or overly produced. Think star wipe/lens flare unnecessary effects but Vic's style suited us. Check out his sample videos. Really, look no further than Vic to handle your video/ photo needs. On top of that, he's a really nice guy.

I can't say enough wonderful things about Mark and our experience with him as our wedding photographer. Mark is amazing to work with because not only is he incredibly talented, his easy-going personality made our wedding day so much more relaxed! We connected with him instantly and he goes out of his way to capture those small, wonderful moments that would have otherwise been missed. He is truly a gifted storyteller and it shows in the amazing images he creates!

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 !!

Laurie was such a great photographer. We had her for our San Francisco kids birthday party. She captured every moment and covered more than 50-60 kids each having their special moments. She even climbed into the bouncy house to take picture of them while playing. We would love to work with her again.
