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!!

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!

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!

Milan and Jelena were amazing! They were so professional and knew exactly what to do. Honestly, we were a little nervous looking for a photographer - we didn't know who to trust. All of the Chicago wedding photographers were either out of our budget or something was a little off when we would meet with them or speak with them on the phone. We read a lot of good reviews and met with Jelena at a coffee shop briefly. We got a good feeling so we decided to go with WS photography. I am so glad that we did! We LOVE our wedding photos! If you're unsure about hiring Milan and his team, don't be. They are great and you will not be disappointed!

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!

Wonderful Video! I used KMc Video Productions for our multi-camera wedding in July. They were friendly, professional and helpful throughout the entire process. They have a great process that lets you say what is most important to you and clarify the flow of your day, so there is no confusion the day of the event. I love the video and the videographer worked very hard to capture the spirit of the wedding. I definitely recommend KMc Video Productions!

Vic did an amazing job being our photographer at our wedding!!! Our wedding was not very traditional and we had some special requirements including the venue having challenging lighting. He was great with the communication while planning everything with us ahead of time, was early to arrive to the venue that day, and when my husband and I arrived late it did not leave much time to talk with Vic before our guests arrived. He handled everything wonderfully, took charge and made sure that everything went smoothly. We are very happy with the final product-he captured everything that we had hoped he would and the pictures look fantastic! He even provided us with a bonus video of our pictures which is also amazing. We will definitely be hiring him again for future projects. Thanks Vic!!

I can't say enough wonderful things about Mark and our experience with him as our wedding photographer. Mark is amazing to work with because not only is he incredibly talented, his easy-going personality made our wedding day so much more relaxed! We connected with him instantly and he goes out of his way to capture those small, wonderful moments that would have otherwise been missed. He is truly a gifted storyteller and it shows in the amazing images he creates!

Didomi did the photography for my wedding & I could not be happier. David the photographer is easy to work with & very professional. He went prior to our wedding day & explored the area where our ceremony was going to be to get ideas for backgrounds & shots. The quality of our pics were phenomenal. He has a great eye. I have seen his work over the years as my friends have used him as a photographer, as well. His work has always been high quality.

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!

Wonderful. May 2, 2015 Celebration our 50th wedding anniversary we renewed our vows. Joan took pictures at the chapel and at the American legion hall where we had a great party We had many children at our party. she was so good at getting their pictures. Working with Joan has been a great pleasure. She works hard to get the great pictures and she does mind taking silly ones. My family are goof offs and hard to get them to take pictures. She was wonderful. We will work with her again and would recommend her highly.

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!

LaShinda was one of the reasons our wedding was amazing! My family, wedding party, and my spouse fell in love with her the minute we met her! Our videographer cancelled an hour before our special day and she took over capturing every important moment of our special day! We would refer her to ANYONE looking for high class and amazing photography! As our wedding was at a casino, she was able to showcase our family, friends, and event in a FUN, CLASSY way that we will never forget! SIMPLY THE BEST!!!!! :-)

I am so happy with the job Matt did at our wedding! We threw a few challenges his way and he handled every single one with aplomb, and made us look really good, to boot! The first challenge was getting all our schedules sorted. My husband and I work odd hours, well outside normal 9-5, so meeting up with Matt and getting him to meet our coordinator and see the main space and the outdoor photo areas took a little wrangling. He made it work, no problem. He also scouted the outdoor location on his own time when we couldn't meet up. He was so easy to work with, bless him. He was so easy to work with. On the day of the wedding, he made it to our outdoor photo shoot location early, which was great. Unfortunately *we* were running behind, and we ruined our chance at photos in Humboldt Park's lovely gardens by showing up minutes before a freak torrential downpour. Didn't matter; Matt had us take photos in the cover of the boathouse, and the photos are gorgeous. I don't even miss the garden photos because the boathouse pics have such great drama and framing. The indoor ceremony and reception were held in one place (Revolution Brewing) so Matt shot us in waning indoor summer light, soft candle light, and the harsh glare of the florescent lights in the brewery. All came out great, even with our diverse wedding party--several shades of black, Asian, Hawaiian, and white. It's actually not easy to get good color balance in shots with that breadth of skin tones. He did an amazing job. And he was just fun to work with. Good sense of humor, easy-going, but always professional. Overall a great experience. I would highly recommend him.
