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 Carrie to do photography for a wedding, and she did a marvelous job. We contacted her on relatively short notice, and she drove out from Chicago to the suburbs to meet up with us and discuss our questions and provide examples from her portfolio for us to see. She was a joy to meet, answered all our questions and seemed to have the exact style we were looking for, so we hired her. She came early the day of the wedding and took lots of prep shots, and was basically invisible during the ceremony and reception. (In fact, we had multiple people tell us that they didn't even know we had a photographer, or that they'd forgotten we'd hired one at all because they just didn't notice her -- she blended in so well and never got in the way of anything.) The photos themselves were absolutely fantastic, and she shared the first half of them (ceremony/family/bridal party photos) with us within a month of the wedding, and the second half (reception photos) followed about a week later. Very prompt! She was professional, responsive, and all-around amazing. I would definitely recommend her for any event, but from personal experience, she definitely knows what she's doing with weddings. Thank you Carrie!

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.

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!

Kimia was so incredibly nice and sweet leading up to my wedding day. She is truly a master of her work in Photography. She is very professional and I knew I didn't have to have a worry about anything. Before the wedding she corresponded with me & provided a contract and invoice, very easy to make payment. I was very impressed. Her portfolio is absolutely captivating and I knew right away she would be the perfect choice for my wedding photographer. She arrived early and set up, talked me thru any photos during the craziness of the ceremony, my family loved her and respected her very much during the process. I can't even begin to describe the feeling of looking at the finished photos. I was sent a link to her website with all the photos and download links. You can even order high quality prints. The photos were so perfect it allowed me to truly look back and have a completely different experience of the wedding all over again. Every picture is perfect and I have never felt so beautiful. I now have special pictures to look back on for the rest of my life of the best day of my life. I give my highest review to Kimia!

Danielle was a pleasure to work with. My wife and I had only a vague idea of what we wanted for our wedding photography and wanted to avoid too many cliche photos. Danielle was excellent at giving us what we wanted but also encouraging us to try some things that felt unnatural that ended up looking great! She provided great direction throughout. She also did an amazing job at improvising when bad weather shook up our plans of taking photos 100% outside - the sign of a great photographer! All in all we loved our photos and would highly recommend Danielle for your special event.

Martina did a fantastic job on my daughter's wedding. I could not be more pleased. It was the only thing that went right during her wedding. The groom's family did their best to sabotage the wedding. Martika's calm presence made the situation less devastating for us, even when the Mom was yelling out inappropriate comments during the ceremony. I could never have made it through the event without her. She spent time getting to know us and came away feeling like we made a friend and not just a photographer. She did an excellent job of explaining to my skeptical unknowledgeable daughter the services that were available to her so that the pictures told her story. She checked out the event site the day before and they both became more comfortable with her and the camera. She responded very well despite the constant conflict from the grooms family making this event devastating and unbearable for myself, the mother of the bride. No one could have done a better job under these terrible circumstances. Martina truly went way above and beyond given this unfortunate situation.

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!

We booked Kevin at the last minute to film our wedding ceremony, and he did a FANTASTIC job. There were so many last minute details, that we didn't get everything taken care of, but Kevin made the video stuff very easy. His post-production skills are awesome, too. Everyone LOVES our highlight video. Even our friend who does event planning in TN for a living said it was one of the best highlight videos she had seen. Overall, this exceeded our expectations and even our hopes. Strong recommend to anyone who is considering booking him. Some details on our job: Mainly indoor filming. Large wedding party. We got a highlight video and a full ceremony video. We didn't book the video for the reception, just ceremony.

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!

Konrad was exceptionally easy to work with! We had several specific time restrictions, split up sessions etc. and Konrad gracefully worked with us throughout all of this. He is polite, professional and friendly. My husband and I really enjoyed working with him and will definitely hire him again for future events...our daughters baptism for starters. Not only were the final pictures beautiful, we had a lot to choose from and the price was just right! We have had a ton of compliments on our wedding photos....and we love them. He captured our special day with a lot of detail and focused on just about everything and everyone. If you want a modern, kind, easygoing person to work with seriously consider Konrad, you won't be disappointed!

Working with Ryan was a pleasure and I couldn't be happier with the photos he took. Choosing a wedding photographer can seem like a daunting task and I'm glad I found Ryan. Him and his assistant were helpful and creative when taking the pre-wedding photos with just my groom and me, and at the ceremony and reception they were attentive and present to capture every moment. Ryan made the picture-taking process fun, as well, and instead of feeling stiff and awkward with cameras pointed at us my groom and I were at ease and enjoying ourselves. Can't recommend him enough!

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
