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.

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.

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.

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 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!!

We got married 6.13.14 and we already have our pictures back!

Kathy is great! I needed professional head shots on very short notice and she went out of her way to accommodate my schedule. She has been a professional photographer for a long time and it shows in her work. During the 20 minute shoot she was very friendly, and very helpful in telling me what to do, how to position myself, etc in order to get the best shots. She even edited and emailed the pictures that night! If you're reading this you probably already know she also has the most competitive price for a professional photographer in the area. Thanks again Kathy!

Kathy did an amazing job with our family pictures. We had a large group and needed several smaller group photos as well as large ones with 15+ people. She was so patient with us when it took some a while to arrive and also when trying to take pictures of the kids who didn't want to sit still. I would highly recommend Kathy to anyone needing a photographer. :)

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!

I couldn't have asked for a better photographer! Kimia is very professional yet she feels like a very good friend! She will always update you through email/text and I always get a reply from her right away! She took my pictures in downtown Chicago and she picked out beautiful locations to take the photos. I had so much fun with her and I would 100% recommend everyone to hire Kimia!! Not only does she focus on detail, she is also very knowledgable about photography and she knows how to get the perfect natural lighting/angle in every picture. 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! Her pricing is also very reasonable compared to other photographers in the area who charge almost double! She is perfect for portraits, weddings, family photoshoots, senior portraits, headshots, etc...! Her work is absolutely amazing and I will definitely be working with her again in the future! Thank you Kimia for a wonderful experience!

GREAT, GREAT, GREAT! I can not recommend Danielle Heinson enough! My wife and were on a budget and posted an ad seeking a wedding photographer on Craigslist but we were nervous about doing so. We were bombarded with responses. Most of which were mediocre photographers and basically what you would expect from posting to Craigslist on a whim. Two photographers stood out to us and we in the end decided on Danielle. We could not be happier with that choice. She was an absolute joy to work with! Easy to contact with and to do so on your time. Oh, and her photos are FANTASTIC! You can not go wrong. She is very easygoing while maintaining a professional relationship. She really did a great job and we can not recommend her enough.

Melissa M.

Verified review

Though I did not get a chance to be photographed by Danielle this review is more to compliment her flexibility and thoughtfulness. I had originally planned to have a winter photo shoot for engagement photos and Danielle was ready to be available whenever the weather would cooperate. She agreed to be available with little notice which was something most photographers would never do. Unfortunately, the weather NEVER cooperated so we decided to skip the shoot. I will definitely be considering Danielle for anything I need in the future. She was fun to work with and was so open to my exact vision.

Danielle was very polite and professional. My fiancé and I we're traveling in from out of town and Danielle communicated great via email and phone. She made sure we kept in touch and was on the same page, far as plans go. Still waiting to see the final product but with the sneak peaks shots I seen on her camera was worth a million words. Amazing job well done. I highly recommend Danielle Heinson. One of Chicago's finest photographers.

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 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.

Jamie is a great choice for an event photographer. He was kind enough to lower his normal rate to work with us because we are a non-profit, which really helped out budget for the event. He arrived on time and I believe he may have event stayed longer than scheduled to capture important moments. After the event, he posted photos quickly and they looked great! His website also allows participants to purchase photos. Overall, the photos are crisp, clear, and capture key moments, and as a photographer he was polite, always smiling, and kept moving around the event to try and capture all aspects of the day.
