You will NOT be sorry with Karolina Heggaton Photography! Not only is Karolina easy to work with, she is also FUN to work with! She did our engagement photos in November 2015 and made us feel totally comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera. She even brought a few of her very own props for us to borrow (blanket, chark-board sign) without us even asking, so sweet! Every single picture was amazing - in fact that was the only “problem,” that there were TOO many great photos to choose from! You will not be disappointed with Karolina. Professional and gorgeous photos for a steal in pricing, almost too good to be true! We love our photos - Thanks Karolina! :)

My husband and I had a great shoot with Nicole. We found The Still Life Photography on Thumbtack. Nicole contacted me right away with a very reasonable quote for our wedding photography. Unfortunately, due to reasons unrelated to The Still Life Photography, we were unable to book for our wedding. However, we decided to go with engagement photography. It was a super cold and windy day, but we did not feel rushed at all. Nicole was efficient and very meticulous in taking some unique shots. We LOVED the way all of our photos turned out. During this whole process, Nicole offered us great customer service, she was friendly, and also very accommodating. When the time comes, we definitely plan to keep her in mind for our pregnancy and baby photoshoots ;-) We highly recommend this service!

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 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 to shoot candid proposal photos of our engagement and he was awesome. The shots were terrific, were turned around really quickly and were more than I could have hoped for. I highly recommend Jack to shoot your next occasion!

We did our engagement pictures with Nicole Fields Photography in September 2015. She was very professional and well prepared for some poses she wanted us to try. She is a joy to work with and the pictures turned out amazing! Will definitely be using her again for our photography needs.

I've had the pleasure of working with Abbey on several occasions. Most recently, she took photos of my impromptu civil wedding. She met my partner and I at city hall equipped with two bouquets of roses and ready to shoot. She captured the emotion of the moment despite the mundane setting and made a trip to the courthouse feel like a beautifully orchestrated wedding ceremony. If you're looking for a pro photographer with outstanding customer service, look no further; Abbey is the professional for you!

After meeting with several photographers, she was the ONLY one my wife and i liked. Her professionalism is unlike any other - prompt with responses, super creative and pictures came on time.Geraldine has one of the biggest hearts of anyone I have ever met, and I was absolutely honored to have her play such an important role in my wedding. I can't recommend her enough.

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.

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!

I have to say that I interviewed a lot of photographers for my wedding and hands down WS photography was my pick. They really made an effort to figure out what I wanted to see in my photos and gave me great advice/recommendations for the shoot. Milan is very creative and helped me to envision exactly what I was looking for. My fiancé and I booked them right away and set up the date for our engagement shoot. Our engagement shoot was a ton of fun and it was nice to have a photographer who was not only talented, but had a fun and positive attitude the entire shoot. It is important I feel for the photographer one chooses to not only be talented in photography, but also a lot of fun to be around since they are sharing your wedding day with. When I got the photos back from our engagement shoot I could not believe how beautiful and cool the pics came out. The day of our wedding Milan and his assistant showed up on time and ready to have fun. The entire day was a blast and I couldn't have asked for a better wedding. Our photos came out even better then I ever thought wedding photos could look and once I posted them on Facebook my friends/family went crazy over the photos. The photos literally looked like they had been pulled out of a magazine. Milan exceeded my expectations and I am so happy that he was there on my wedding day to capture our special moment.

We had a great experience with Tony. He arrived early which was nice to not have to worry about where's my photographer? I had looked through portfolios of other photographers and just really like his style. Although it was a little more than the other quotes I feel I was well worth it. The other examples I saw were pretty average. You can tell that Tony has a lot of experience with photography. My pictures turned out great and he got them done so fast! I would highly recommend this company for your photography needs!

After a long search for a photographer and party planner for my wife's birthday, I finally came across halo photography by chance and was I sure glad I did. Throwing any type of event is stressful but Mile was so energetic and his wife Irena was so creative that hiring them really made my life that much easier and our party that much more memorable. From lighting and decor to they're portable photo booth. Every moment and detail was captured and on point. Everyone even left with a photo print in hand. My wife loved her party photos so much that she even booked a maternity shoot with the owner Mile. Can't thank them enough! You guys are rockstars!

We were visiting Chicago and decided last minute to try to squeeze an engagement photo shoot into our trip. Luckily, Harry responded quickly to our thumbtack post! Harry was very responsive, flexible, and pleasant to work with. He captured some great shots even though we are quite camera shy and got us some edited pictures the day after our shoot! Definitely would recommend

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!

We had a couples engagement photo shoot and we really enjoyed it, Though the weather wasn't the greatest (Cloudy and freezing cold) yet Sergei has managed to get the best out of it by his talent and experience, and we've got to say also that he really was very friendly and patient with us making it so much fun. We actually recommended Sergei to everybody want to have a great photo shoot and photos. Thank you Sergei for the pictures-they look great! We're really pleased! All the best-and looking forward to getting in touch again when the weather gets warmer to have a sunny photo shoot.
