About

Maryanne assisted me with a personal headshot project. The job took no longer than an hour as agreed upon, but she was very flexible with scheduling, as well as location. The best things about working with this professional was that-she was a professional! She knew her work, and was able to convey her skills and best tips for the perfect photo. She is very easy to work with, and very open to new ideas. She has a great portfolio and is great at her job. I appreciated her promptness, and the use of two different cameras, and advice throughout the shoot. In addition, she is a very personable individual. She is definitely a photographer I would recommend. The only thing that could be in more of Maryanne's favor is having an assistant of some sort, however that is at the photographer's own discretion and would most likely increase product and work cost. All in all, I was really pleased for this as my first thumbtack project!

About

I was not expecting to find my wedding photographer on Thumbtack - mostly because I had never heard of the website before and had zero experience or references. I couldn't be more pleased! After Desiree responded to my project we worked together via email and on the phone. She immediately set my mind at ease. She is wonderful at communicating and was always available to answer my questions and work with me before, during and after my wedding. I can not say enough good things. If you need a wedding photographer I recommend Desiree and her team whole heartedly.

About

My business mainly provides heirloom portrait art and wedding photography. I also specialize in destination sessions and event photography, custom product design and retouching. Taking those fleeting moments of our truest emotions and creating timeless visions to remind us who we are, what makes our hearts beat faster, our eyes tear up, and makes us grateful for what we've been given- That is what I live for. Photography and design have been my main passion all of my life. I will always take portraits, photograph weddings, and strive to tell stories of love and happiness with those images. I've been a portrait artist and designer for 11 years, 9 of those years professionally. I've photographed over 40 weddings and hundreds of families, children and individuals. I'm a romantic and love children, this industry is exactly where I was meant to be. After studying 35MM film photography and dark room processing for years, I knew by age 16 what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I will never forget that unmistakable moment of self-realization when the image I had exposed to the paper was appearing before my eyes in the dektol, like magic. I still have that print. So after years of darkroom study and film photography, I went to work for Sears Portrait Studio to learn the basic principles of posing, lighting, sales and marketing. After a year there, I went to work for Certified Professional Photographer, Clay Bostian, at Creative Photography in Nacogdoches, Texas. During my early years of working for him I earned my degree in business management and marketing. All of these experiences were steps I was taking to prepare myself for the end game: launching Kellie Gann & Company. On September 6th, 2014 I finally took the leap and I haven't looked back. Every day has been a blessing. Every client has taught me a little more about who I am and what kind of a person I want to be. Every session and every wedding has brought me more joy than I ever thought I would know in my lifetime. It was the best decision I've ever made. I'm more in love with the art of portraiture and wedding photography now than ever. I always enjoy showing my clients the difference between a photographer and a Certified Professional Photographer (CPP). Professional Photographers of America has a strenuous test and portfolio review one must pass to obtain a CPP degree. I am the only Certified Professional Photographer in Lufkin, Texas. I'm also an established member of Texas Professional Photographers Association. Setting myself apart and setting myself up for success has made a tremendous impact on my life and my business. There's nothing more rewarding than seeing your lifelong dreams finally come true, and I'm just so grateful God has blessed me with the ability to make it happen.

In September of 2013, we had photographer Austin Townsend from the Look of Perfection provide Engagement and Wedding Photos. What an amazing job and a great price. We still have family and friends talking about how well the photos turned out. We had a great time with Austin, he made us feel relaxed. The Look of Perfection website has a great client area, which made it easy for us to share photos, order prints and build and order our own photobooks. Great Job Guys !!! 5-Star. We are recommending you to everyone we know.

Mr. Vinh is an amazing photographer. He is very professional, creative, enthusiastic and passionate about his work. I couldn't have asked for a better photographer to take my Graduation and Wedding pictures! He was very patient in making sure I was comfortable and ensured that the perfect photo was captured. Overall, he made the whole experience enjoyable and he was a joy to work with! I would highly recommend his services to anyone seeking a photographer who truly captures moments that last forever!

I have done several photo sessions with Vinh Photography and would definitely recommend! He's very versatile. We have done edgy dance shots to beautiful engagement pictures. He's great at giving suggestions for posing, and he takes the time to get his pictures perfect. My friends and family all loved the work he has done for me!

I have nothing but outstanding things to say about April! Photography was the one aspect of our engagement and wedding that was most important to us. We had a very tight budget so we searched long and hard to find a talented photographer who was also competitively priced. We found that and more in April. We knew we wanted to book her the second we met her. She is the perfect blend of spunky, silly, artsy, and professional. She walked us through her creative process in our first meeting which was incredibly helpful because both of us were photo-simple. She was unbelievably receptive to our ideas and even excited to include our puppy in our engagement shoot. On the day of our engagement pictures, she was very hands on with regard to posing, fixing our hair, and making sure our clothes were in place. Yet, also simultaneously eager to photograph poses that were important to us. Some photographers are disengaged and you have to do all the posing yourself (which would have been disastrous for us), while others are too controlling and unwilling to deviate from their own vision (which would have been way less fun). Half of our engagement pictures are us laughing at each other, and the other half are us laughing at April. We had so much fun taking pictures and they turned out absolutely perfect! I have friends who spent upwards of $6,000 on wedding photography and we have been told by them that they think E and I's pictures are higher quality. Another thing we like about April is her hands-on approach. She is meeting with us a few months prior to our wedding to talk through our family dynamics and make a detailed schedule for the day. She has talked us through her method for getting families, wedding parties, etc. through the process in an efficient manner and we could not be more thankful for that! Hiring April was the best decision we've made with regard to our wedding. We love her, our pictures are incredible, and we could not say enough wonderful things about her!

We used April for engagement photos (twice because she's that good) and hired her to do our wedding. April knows how to get the job done effectively, quickly and fun. She has great ideas for photos and we are so pleased with how they turned out. She listens to what you want and don't want in photos and will even study your Pinterest board to make sure she get's exactly what you hoped your wedding photos would look like. Despite her finishing finals in college and moving to Texas within two weeks after our wedding, April managed to get all of our photos back to us within one month. One thing I especially loved was I got a few photos from her each week. This proved she was staying on top of it despite everything going on. If we had to do it all over again we would not hesitate to hire April again. She made the day run smoothly and I was never worried about her running late or missing a picture perfect moment. To sum it up, you can't go wrong with hiring April as your photographer.

April came to Tulsa to do my engagement photos. She was so sweet and friendly. She was on time and had so many great ideas, and was more than willing to listen to and incorporate any of our ideas. The pictures turned out amazing! Not only was everything about the shoot and photos wonderful, but her prices are incredibly reasonable. I've now hired her to do my bridal portraits and wedding photography! I may never use another photographer again! Thanks April!

My boyfriend and I chose a mini session with Priscilla Carriere Photography. We didn't have much of an idea of what we wanted our pictures to capture but luckily, Priscilla had a vision for us and our pictures. Her vision came alive as she captured our love and relationship on an old dirt road, a field of yellow flowers, and an old Mercury. We are thankful for Priscilla and her passion for photography. I highly recommend Priscilla Carriere Photography to anyone looking for a friendly and dedicated photographer to capture their special moments. I cannot wait for future opportunities to work with Priscilla!

When dreaming of wedding planning and upon becoming engaged, a couple is thrust into a significant decision-making process. When it came to our wedding, very few decisions were more important to us than the place which we chose to take our vows and whom we trusted to capture and document one of the most emotional and memorable days of our lives. When considering wedding photography, we knew that we wanted to capture our wedding day for personal memories, but also as art that we would come to cherish more and more with each passing day. As a bride, my ultimate goal was to develop a relationship with a photography artist that shared my same vision and appreciation for elegance, classic romanticism, brilliance in lighting, sensational color, whimsical/ethereal ambiance and overall refined composition with impeccable professionalism. Choosing Emily Fuselier Photography for our wedding was the best decision we made, and was only confirmed when we found our beautiful engagement photographs published in a nationally recognized wedding blog, Le Magnifique!   Because of Emily's and her husband Euric's professional and artistic talents, we had the utmost confidence that our wedding memories were in trusted hands. Words cannot express how reassuring it was for us to rest confidently on our wedding day knowing that our investment in wedding photography was professionally cared for, and all details attended to. Thank you sincerely to Emily and Euric; our gratitude for your professionalism and our appreciation for your excellence and talent cannot be expressed enough. Thank you sincerely for capturing the priceless moments and for the gift of art, which captures all of the love and emotion of our wedding day, as well as our spectacular engagement photographs. Our Sincerest Gratitude, Kyle & Jessie Lee
