It was a very special day for me. I was proposing to the woman I love. She met with me a week before the shoot to discuss details, find the perfect place and covered every little detail with me. She engaged the kids and did a great job helping me surprise the woman of my dreams. The pictures she captured are simply amazing. I will use her for future photo shoots. Thank you so much.

We hired JZ Studio to take photos of our multigenerational family. To explain how amazing JZ was, I need to give some background information because the odds of having good pictures were really stacked against us: first, we decided to look for a photographer late Sunday afternoon, about 15 hours before we wanted the pictures taken; second, it's December, temps were in the teens and we wanted the pictures to be outdoors, which is a tall order considering the lack of beauty found in the north Chicago suburbs at this time of year; third, we weren't sure what family members could make our photo shoot; fourth, we had very strict time requirements because some of us had afternoon flights to catch; and fifth, one of the persons photographed was an 11 month old baby! But you know what, everything considering, our pictures came our great! JZ picked a beautiful spot, was more than flexible with the number of people being photographed (good news -- our entire family was able to make our impromptu Monday morning shoot) and JZ efficiently whipped through the photo session so that we could be in and out and back to warmer temps indoors. Our pictures are simply beautiful. On a gray Chicago day, JZ managed to infuse color and life into our pics. We couldn't be more happy and highly recommend JZ. We will use again, but next time in the summer! PS. We made our afternoon flight at O'Hare too! And the baby smiled in all of the photos. How about that!

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!

How do we begin?! Danielle is just AMAZING! We had to move our wedding up due to weather, but Danielle was right there with us. She was flexible, professional, and when we did get married she brought a whole new level of joy to our day. Her charismatic and fun personality, passion, and kindness stole our her hearts and we encourage everyone reading this to HIRE HER NOW! If you want a photographer that will not only capture your special moments but help create it, she's your woman. We will definitely hire her for other photo shoots. Thank you Danielle for being YOU!

Martika has a real eye for catching the best picture whether posed or especially impomtu. She does her homework by scoping out the site you pick or picking out the best site for your theme. Our family has used Martika several times.We had a family photo shoot in woodsy setting. Later in the year, my husband and I had a vow reneal ceremony, and finally, my son-in-law did a photo shoot with his motorcyle for a possible magazine cover. Martika was always punctual and her work exceptional. Our family was so happy with her work, we didn't hesitate to hire her again. Martika has great talent in helping with the layout and look of the final product. I cherish the photobooks Martika helped me lay out. I highly recommend Martika for any family event or photo shoot you may have in mind. You will be very happy with her work if you chose to hire her!

I hired Mike for a photo shoot (this was a first for me). Context was that I needed one for my LinkedIn profile. I really didn't know what to expect since I usually don't do this. Upon meeting Mike I was put at ease. He understood what I wanted to convey in my picture my asking targeted questions. He then translated my idea using his skill into a final product that I love. We took a variety of shots and looks that gave me a large degree of confidence in his method. I highly recommend Mike because he is a great guy, looks out for you, and delivers a quality product that is well worth the price.

I can't say enough awesome things about our holiday photo shoot with Nikki. The mini package she offered was just the beginning of an exceptional value. She was flexible with planning and punctual, prepared and professional at appointment time. But the photos she captured, particularly of my baby boy were spectacular. She caught every ounce of joy in his little heart that I could ever hope for! She is a professional in every aspect, but better than that, she has a superb and keen eye to catch those perfect moments. I cannot wait for our next shoot! Thank you Nikki!!

My fiancé and I had Geraldine shoot our engagement photos at the Garfield Conservatory. She was prompt and waiting for us upon our arrival. It was in the low 90s, an unseasonably warm afternoon for late September. And even though the temperature was borderline uncomfortable, Geraldine was fantastic in helping us get through it. Her direction made it easy to work with her (neither of us have ever done a photo shoot before). She made sure to try and find the more comfortable spots inside and outside the conservatory, and that we were staying hydrated throughout the session. While she didn't rush us through poses or setups, she also didn't linger too long and take an unnecessary amount of photos. We had our photos in a week and they turned out much more beautifully than we could have ever expected. We would definitely recommend her to others!

I hired Sally to do two separate photo shoots for me: corporate head shots and some shots in Downtown Chicago. She worked with me each time to select the best items and makeup to wear. Each time the photographs came out great! It almost seemed effortless in the end! Thanks for the wonderful experience, Sally!!

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.

As a genuine supporter of non-profits and small groups Michael was a great fit to work with Wish of a Lifetime when we needed a quick shoot to capture our Wish Recipient returning to Wrigley Field with his daughter. Michael did a great job of listening to exactly what we wanted from the photos and went above and beyond taking care of all of the logistics to meet our group at the parking lot and walking them to the field to start the shoot. Even with rainy weather, huge crowds, and construction Michael delivered great photos!
