Hi, I recently worked with Karolina to do my family Christmas card photos and I'm still speechless. I was nervous about having a new photographer but Karolina completely changed that feeling and did everything possible to make it such a great experience. Her quality of photography down to her personality are just impeccable. I will definitely be using Karolina for future pictures and events. More specifically, I was impressed as she knew what kind of pictures I wanted without having to direct her or even say a word.

I was looking for a photographer to do photos for my brother who eloped at the end of last year but I live in the UK and he lives in the US. I found Karolina and she was friendly, helpful and the style and quality of her photos were exactly what we were looking for! Can’t wait to see the finished product and thanks again to Karolina for being awesome! :-)

I chose The Still Life Photography to photograph my wedding ceremony and reception and was so glad I did! It was a pleasure working with Nicole because she was very accommodating and took the time to learn about the various traditions surrounding my Islamic Wedding Ceremony. I sent Nicole a whole folder of photo ideas that I wanted and she made it a priority to make sure I was content with all the shots taken on the day of! She also took it upon herself to incorporate her own artistic style into the photos. I was initially drawn to her and Jay's candid, "captured in the moment" photos on the website and I can't wait to see the final edited photos. I was very impressed with her professionalism and enthusiasm and would definitely recommend The Still Life Photography.

Nicole was a very accommodating and fun photographer to work with. Having two photographers was a treat because they were able to take photos from different perspectives of the same moments. They anticipated the moments you want to cherish and caught them with the click of a button. We were very pleased with their pricing as well as their service. I thought they did an incredible job, and I can't emphasize enough how accommodating and low stress they were to work with. They were very insightful and gave us photos that are all over my home. When I look at them, I don't just see a photo, I feel the emotions I had in that moment and it makes me happy.

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 :)

I found Carrie on thumbtack and she was professional yet so much fun to work with! My 3 mo old was stunned by the big camera & would not smile. Carrie pulled out all the stops to try to coax a smile from him & get a couple. Her artistic eye & creative positioning were much appreciated as I am an artist myself. I felt she listened to my input & took it into account. She was a pleasure to work with & I would highly recommend her. Plus her pricing was very reasonable. So many photographers charge way too much for digital photos and that's why I did not go with them. Plus she came to my house! I can honestly say it was a fun and stress free experience thanks to her!!

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.

JZ Studio captured the photos for my wedding. They arrived early on my special day and dressed very professional, I was impressed. They use excellent photography equipment and have a great flash set up in order to avoid shadows or darkness on the face. Not many photographers can get bright, vivid photos of my husband because of his very dark skin tone but JZ Studio did a perfect job achieving the photos I have always wanted to see! All the pictures turned out very crisp and clear. The color is perfect. Philip was very patient with my active 6 year old son. JZ Studio edited the photos wonderfully to enhance the natural beauty of the photo not to change it out of its original character. The turn around time between the photo shoot and receiving the photo is short. I am so very happy that we choose JZ Studio to capture our wedding ceremony because we will now be able to have our memories for a lifetime and share them with all our friends and family. Their photography is something I'm proud to hang on the walls in my home. I highly recommend JZ Studio for any photography needs that you have. I couldn't be more pleased with them.

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!

Agnes arrived early. Emil happened to be along so we had TWO photographers! They were so professional and captured everything we asked and much more. They filled the entire two hours of the contract with a constant stream of photos. We were so satisfied we cut the cake early and let Agnes go on to her next event -- we couldn't imagine anything else to be captured. We'd very highly recommend Emil and Agnes!!

He focussed on in-the-moment, action shots, just like I had asked. We were able to enjoy ourselves without feeling an overwhelming presence from a photographer. The pictures came out beautifully, and really captured how much fun everyone had. Though Emil was solo, he seemed to be everywhere. I would highly recommend him, especially for people who don't like to pose for pictures.

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!

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.

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!

Kristine is an outstanding photographer and an even better person. She was genuinely concerned and offered to reshoot when I seemed less enthusiastic about our holiday shot of the children than a family picture. It took me a short while to realize she indeed had a great pic for our cards. She surprised me by adding a beautiful picture of the family shot in my package of pictures. I hope to return the favor and refer my friends and wholeheartedly recommend Kristine to anyone interested in a first rate photo session.

I could not be grateful enough to have found Nikki on Thumbtack! She blew us away with her ability to wrangle all 9 of us for outdoor family portraits. She captured the best photos I've ever seen of my three wild nephews (7, 5, and 3 years old). When we posed for pics she helped us all to be at the right angles and coordinated. The boys were totally at ease with her and we all had a really great time. She is very professional, her edits were tasteful (not overly filtered), her prices are beyond fair, and we now have a large album of beautiful photos that capture our family at it's best. Highly recommend contacting Nikki. I'm booking her again for my other side of the family and will continue to reach out to her in the future. THANK YOU, NIKKI!

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 hired Robert to shoot some boudoir photographs before Valentine’s Day. He is really talented, nice, and was very easy to work with in his studio. Despite being a mature woman, he made me appear elegant and pretty but with just enough spice to create an edgy/sultry look. I first noticed his work in a fine art show and he is equally talented with people. I am planning on using him in the future for a professional portrait as well. Highly recommend him.

Luz was great! My husband and I did photos celebrating our first year anniversary/Christmas. She kept great communication with me up until the shoot. She worked with me and was always flexible. Its always nerve-wracking meeting someone you've never met in person or never worked with before, but all our nerves melted away when we met her. She has a warm personality that is inviting and makes you feel very comfortable. She knows how to pose you and has a good eye for spots in your location. She has a great price, and she doesn't water mark your photos like most other photographers in Chicago. I certainly recommend her for anyone considering her as a photographer, and I will definitely use her again for any future photos I need! Thanks Luz!

I came across Luz's portfolio and subsequently reached out to her to have some headshots taken. She was very communicable in setting up a time that mutually worked and made sure to follow up a day before to ensure we were still a go. During the shoot Luz was very confident in selecting the right environment for the shoot and precisely planned the entire shoot methodically to hit the spots for the best lighting, angles, ambiance, etc. As she promised, I received the final photos a week after the shoot and was COMPLETELY HAPPY with the results.

I didn't have a good professional headshot for corporate stuff and social media. I had given up getting one done professionally because I tend to look stiff, stressed or crazed no matter what in all posed pictures. My favorite pics of me tend to be candid, so why spend money on an inevitable and epic fail? I had friends and family take shots. I tried selfies. Those were the worst of the posed/possessed shots. It just wasn't working. I decided to bite the bullet and shop around for photographer. If I couldn't hit the mark, at least the background would be more professional. It had to be inexpensive too since it was going to be bad. I posted a job on Thumbtack. Vega put in a bid. I went to his site, loved his work, but declined. Unlike with the others I had declined, I wrote a note explaining that I loved his work: he really gave his subjects character, but all shots on his site were of artists/actors and too dramatic or artsy for what I needed. Within a few minutes, he wrote back with samples of two corporate seatings from earlier in the day. (Plus his quote was great!) I cancelled a seating downtown and went with the man: Vega. For the first time, I got posed picture that I actually liked! Not only did I get great pics, but also, and most of all, I got life-altering advice, rather, photo-altering advice for life. He gave me one tip that totally explained why all of my posed photos looked so off, why the more I tried to smile/be more upbeat in them, the worse they got, and why the only shots of myself that I have ever liked have been candid. I used to think I just didn't like my image period. I especially hated my smile. I had no idea that I was doing it the wrong way. It's a smile, right? He didn't say I was doing it the wrong way. He's not like that. He just taught me how to actually smile for the camera, and through that tip, I had pained smiles. Later, I did research on headshot appeal and applied advice to "smile up to your eyes." The evidence from behavioral science studies showed that "a smile up to your eyes" is what appeals in pictures. Things got worse the more I applied that though. I interpreted it as smile wider, get the corners of your mouth to your eyes. That's not it, and it yields a crazed or stressed Joker smile on me. Vega's tip finally hit the science of people home. It's the eyes, not the smile. It's been life-altering too because I found out that the way I smile naturally probably doesn't look like the stressed smile I have had in photographs. I've become a lot less self-conscious about my smile out and about. Best of all was that the shoot was relaxed and real. I didn't have all of the pancake makeup that some have put on me for photos in order to "pop" more. The only makeup I had on that I don't normally wear was lipstick. Otherwise, it was just the eyeliner and eyebrow tint as per usual. I didn't do my hair. It was the same messy bun I clip in everyday when I put it up. When it was down, you could tell I probably needed a trim of the ends, but all flyaways and such is cleaned up in the end. Why have helmet head with a big, sprayed do when you have Photoshop?! Doing all of that stuff in the past never made me look better in photos anyway. Perhaps I was even more stiff because I could feel the makeup and was skeeved by the stickiness of my hair or pained by the pins holding it together. I'm telling everyone about him and promoting him a lot. It's organic, not planned, because of the great tips changed my photo life, and that is no small feat! I'm not as camera-shy anymore. It's changed my relationship to smiling generally- a boon for anyone. I also got great shots at a good price, which are the basics of the service everyone seeks. Everyone has been amazed by my photos too. They know me and what I normally look like in pictures. The photos are definitely me, but there are not my traditional photo persona. Rave reviews from all with people asking me where and who. Highly recommended.

I recently hired Lauren to photograph my engagement. She went above and beyond. Her pictures turned out excellent, but what impressed me more was her professionalism. She truly cared about making sure the experience was perfect and I received everything I needed. I contacted her to make sure she was ready for us to arrive and she had been setup waiting well in advance. I had many moving parts to my proposal and I did not have to worry at all about her doing her job. It was fantastic! She was also proactive and efficient in returning my photos quickly. If you want a photographer who cares about providing a personal experience for her clients then you need to hire Lauren! She will go the extra mile.

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!

I hired Chris George to take photos of our family last fall and it was such a fun experience. Chris is great with kids, and made the afternoon just a regular fun afternoon and he captured it all beautifully. I can't wait for another photo session- our photos capture the moment and my daughter's 5yr old personality perfectly. Thanks chris!

Chris was excellent to work with. He was punctual, professional, accommodating and had some great advice. He did a 28 person family portrait and then individual family shots and some candid pictures. Our proofs were ready in 48 hours. I would highly recommend Chris. He was great to work with.

I hired Portrait of Light for my sister's wedding. Lori was extremely professional, especially considering all the children between the ages of 5 and 10 that she had to deal with. The photos turned out marvelously. Portrait of Light is definitely a credit to it's profession.

Portrait of Light did a wonderful job with our wedding photos. We were extremely pleased with the staff and the quality of their photography. Not only do I recommend them to others, but would use them again for other events. Thanks Lori!

Freddy's professionalism, knowledge/skills, and the ability to create a warm and exciting environment is everything you want in a photographer! As someone who is very shy and finds being in front of a camera extremely vulnerable, Freddy's energy allowed me to relax, have fun, and feel confident. Beyond happy with my experience!

Freddy was fantastic with my headshots/portraits for my personal website. He spent several hours with me and worked with me until I felt comfortable in front of the camera.

ShutterGuys were very attentive and responsive to my needs for capturing my daughter's 6th birthday. As you can imagine, orchestrating events such as these can be very stressful and worrisome, getting all parties involved to work succinctly. ShutterGuys maintained composure and professionalism with 100+ children running about. They still managed to put together a catalogue of photos that were enjoyed by myself as the host, as well as the guests in attendance. I have and will recommend their services to my colleagues and family.

Soo took my maternity portrait when I was 8months pregnant. I was a bit nervous because I can be a bit camera shy. ;) Soo and his wife are professional and caring and have a lot of techniques for helping me to relax and feel comfortable. Most of all, I felt so beautiful. ; ). I cannot thank Soo enough for the most wonderful experience! I was happy with not only the photos (photos are FANTASTIC) but my experience at studio Soo as well. I definitely recommend them.

It was a great experience! We had a family portrait session for my father in-law's 60th birthday. The experience was great! He was very friendly and professional. And we love our photo results! Glad we chose Studio Soo to take our family portrait. We will be back for sure :)

Soo did such a great job photographing our family. He is very professional and detail oriented. Most of all, he was very kind and patient with our kids. We all know taking family portraits with young ones can be a challenge sometimes :).
