The Photographer Elaine did our wedding photos. After my Husband and I looked at all of the pictures (all 400 of them) I couldn't believe the moments that she had captured because she was quiet, stayed out of the way, I hardly noticed that she was there. She captured every moment with excellence! She was prompt and had a great attitude. Our pictures, both traditional and untraditional turned out beautiful.

Elaine was absolutely wonderful to work with!!! She captured exactly what we were looking for and was so amazing in dealing with our 22month twins and our 9mo old baby! We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great photographer at a very affordable price!

Elaine was very responsive. Very professional. Her cost was almost 1/2 of what other photographers charged. She did some extra work for us at no charge also. Very Very Satisfied.

We have had our family portraits for our Christmas cards taken by Giliane for the past 4 years and have always had a great experience! She is creative, friendly, professional and reasonably priced. My dog is always in our photos and I have a young daughter as well, so there is sometimes some minor chaos, but Giliane always manages to get so many great shots! We are so happy to have found a great photographer and will continue to use Giliane for all of our future photography needs!

Gilian was really nice! I liked how she made me feel very comfortable and had great ideas for poses that go great with my different outfits. She gave her opinions and also asked for mine. She also seemed precise and attentive to details which I really liked because I wouldn't want my hair looking bad or my necklace not being centered. Overall Giliane made my first time having a photo shoot and awesome experience! Thanks!

Needed a head shot in a hurry, and Giliane came to the rescue. Her price quote was in the middle of photographers who responded; she was able to get me in right away; the shoot was very pleasant!

I had a delightful experience by hiring Dave for a portrait session Dave is friendly puntctual & really talented at what he does I have used a lot of photographers over the years & I have never met one as talented & passionate/artistic as Dave I always concidered myself to be un photo genic until my session with Dave. Dave does not rush hes friendly personality puts you right at ease & he takes the time & listens something which you can really see when you receive your photos they were even more perfect than I could ever of imagined all in all I had a really postive,fantastic experience I highly reccome Dave for any occasion/event.

Yale was absolutely amazing to work with! We had him DJ our wedding just a week ago, and I honestly couldn't have been happier! He helped decide on some of the music I was struggling with, and his style fit perfectly with the "feel" of our wedding. Although we didn't hire him as a photographer (a friend was already hired prior to meeting with Yale) he was always offering photo ideas, and even snapping some special moments that our photographers didn't capture! From keeping the guests on the dance floor, to interacting with the crowd, to throwing ideas our way... Yale was the perfect guy for the job, and I would recommend him to anyone looking for either a DJ or a photographer for their special day!

Words can't describe just how fantastic this man is to work with. One of the most genuine human beings I have ever had the pleasure of knowing, and one of the most talented photographers I have ever had the pleasure of working with. He was willing to experiment, he was willing to hear what I WANTED, and adjust to what is going to suit ME best. I have received countless compliments from the top agencies and casting directors in the area, and because the shots are so good it will be awhile before I change my headshot. The best part? When I do change my headshot, I'm going right back to MNTalent because I want the nicest looking shots in the area. I assure you, you aren't going to find a man with this kind of talent, care, and passion for his clients. Thank you Mark. Thank you so much.

Our wedding photographer 6/4/2016 Nicole did a fabulous job on our wedding pictures! She is professional and just a sweet woman. As a person, she is extremely hard working (just ask her about her multiple jobs) and her dedication and love for her family shows. As a photographer, I am extremely happy to have found her on this site and I love what she has done. I am an artsy and creative person myself and was picky about who to hire for these cherished photo memories. I couldn't be happier. Final Product + $cost of hire$ = you are getting a good deal!

Greg was great to work with and a talented photographer. The shoot went longer than planned and he took a lot of shots from many angles and worked with backgrounds and changes smoothly. He already offered a very generous number of photos, but when I asked how much an extra 2 or 3 would cost, he threw them in for no charge. I actually wanted to give him a bonus and he said it wasn't necessary. He listened to my thoughts on edits and lighting and fixed everything I was concerned about. The turn around was long but that's because neither of us were in any rush. If I had needed them sooner he would definitely have delivered when needed. I was usually very late in replying and he was patient from beginning to end. 5+ stars, thank you so much! Will hire him in the future! ~Kira

Dan was awesome! Trust me, I am hard to please and he did a great job with the pictures of this listing. I never used a photographer before for my listings, and now I will never list a house without photographer! Dan was very reasonably priced in comparison to the many I checked, had great ideas for staging the rooms, came out day after I called, pictures were back to me that night! Had questions abot pics and how they worked on the MLS and he answered my calls at 8pm on a Friday night! Couldn't be more pleased :)

I have done both a modeling portfolio shoot and my senior photos shoot with Dan and have had a wonderful time. His use of humor, cracking jokes and making me smile always keep me at ease- and creates better photos! He even sometimes shows photos during the shoot to encourage good poses! He also is very open to pose ideas and really takes into consideration the particular "look" you're going for. Lastly, he is also the most affordable photographer I have come across; definitely the most bang for your buck.

I could not have asked for a better photographer than Dan at Excalibur. I'm usually not excited to take pictures in the first place, but he made it an enjoyable experience from beginning to end. Also loved the quality of prints that we ordered. Next time we need pictures, we won't even get quotes on Thumbtack. We know who our photographer is.

William was hired to capture a surprise party for a fellow employee, and he was great to work with. Communication was good. Prior to the party he ensured he knew where to go and who the party was for. He made sure to capture everything at the party; the room, cake and decorations, candid photos and group photos. We are happy with the pictures and memories from the surprise party!

Our experience with Chris was fantastic. When we began looking at examples of engagement photos, we discovered two types of photographers. Those who's photos looked like I could have taken it myself, and the others that had a certain professional quality to their work. We can happily say that CBro Photography can deliver professional quality, in addition to a friendly attitude. Chris is a great guy and we enjoyed our time with him.

When I was looking to hire a photographer I had specific commercial photography needs at multiple locations. I was looking for someone that was passionate about what they did and who could make the process smooth. Chris was able to accomplish both! By our conversation and his vision on-site it is clear to me that Chris is not only good at what he does but has a passion for it as well. It was the right decision hiring Chris!

We would highly recommend Kay Michael Photography. What initially caught our attention was the quality of their pictures. The pictures were so colorful, and captured the moment in a realistic. From setting up our engagement photos to purchasing our wedding album, the staff thought of every detail and were extremely helpful guiding us through the process. The photographers, Michael and Wendy, were friendly and open to our photo ideas, and offered their professional opinion as well. Toni, ran the behind the scenes, and was very patient and so helpful with every detail along the way.

Kay Michael Photography did our wedding. These people were great! They took a lot of good pictures for us. They had great ideas for pictures. They came out with us around town to do outdoor pictures, too. We had 2 photographers and we couldn't have asked for anything better! Very laid back and willing to work with us and the situation. This was our first time getting married and looking for a photographer. So, we didn't quite know what to expect. They went far above and beyond our expectations! Also, good value for the money.

Kay Michael photography was wonderful. During the entire process from the time we booked them to now they have been incredibly helpful. They did great work. They listened to what I wanted and gave suggestions when necessary. They kept me calm and gave me one less thing to worry about on my wedding day. Photographers are one of the most expensive parts of a wedding and the price was very reasonable for the quality of work they do.

We really love working with Anders for our family / wedding photo shoot. It is a wedding photo shoot with our families, making up for our earlier elopement wedding. Working with a large group of 9 people in a large setting (the landscape arboretum), Anders was extremely patience. He was in the car with us driving around to find the perfect spot with the best lighting. He made sure he caught the best moment of everyone. Some of our family members were not used to photo shoot in motions and got nervous with cameras. He tried to hide when he took their pictures. He has great appreciation of nature and landscape. The places he chose was stunning, even it was his first time to the arboretum. He sent us the photos 2 days after the event. We were so happy with the photos!!! The tone was adjusted to be soft and poetic. People is well balanced with the beautiful nature. Everyone looks great in the photos! I would definitely work with him again in our future photo shoots.

I had the pleasure of working with Anders twice on completely different projects. I needed some city shots done while I lived in Chicago and Anders was a great help. He went above and beyond and even made a time-lapse video that I needed for my business. He was very punctual, professional, and maintained a healthy rapport while we were out shooting. More recently, I worked with him for some nature/outdoor shots and the results were impressive as well. He is always friendly and polite, and has a knack for making everyone around him feel comfortable. He has a keen sense for lighting and how it plays into the 'personality' of a given shot. I plan on reconnecting with him down the road for sports/action shots - he is a versatile photographer and always willing to accommodate any outside-the-box ideas. Look forward to working with him again. (Note: attached pictures have reduced resolution for upload)

Anders is extremely easy to work with. Our whole family felt very comfortable with him and it showed in our photos. He's extremely talented and has a great eye for the whole photo and pulls colors together so well in his work. We will surely be hiring him for all our family photos.

JC was our event photographer for a four-day, convention-sized conference with over one thousand attendees and upwards of fifty distinct events. In other words, our conference could very easily have been a nightmare for any one photographer to try to tackle. Not only did JC step up to the challenge, he surpassed so many of our often pie-in-the-sky expectations — sometimes literally. (We put him up in a cherry lift for an aerial shot!) JC was a joy to work with; his photography is perfect for commemorating an event you do not want to forget. He is professional, upbeat, talented, and he was always right there when we needed him — and we needed him for up to twelve hours some days!! JC is very dedicated. I highly recommend choosing him to cover any important event.

Albert is that unique videographer (and photographer) who at his core is an inventive storyteller. He doesn't just 'shoot' what's in front of the camera, he crafts a story around the possibilities. And he's a great listener for what you imagine your video story or still photos can tell. He'll then take you ideas and craft them into a better story with clever twists based on both on the capabilities of his great equipment, and his long career in creating stories for clients.

Albert is a fantastic photographer and videographer. He captured scenes of our outing to the Boundary Waters in Minnesota, from fish getting into the boat to mirror reflections of the beautiful lakes. It was great to have him out with us for the day. You may also have seen his work with dogs in the field, he has a gift for capturing moments. I highly recommend him for any kind of event or portrait photography.

Abby and Adam are an amazing photography team with such a creative vision and passion for what they do. You can really tell that they care about making your photo session a memorable and fun experience. Abby was always on top of things through phone and email, and helped with scheduling, answering questions, and keeping us informed along the way. During our engagement session and wedding day, both Abby and Adam were very supportive and professional. They took the time to get to know our personalities and style, and then matched the photos to us. And in the end, their work speaks for itself. The photos were absolutely stunning! Abby and Adam do an amazing job of understanding natural lighting and they get so creative with it. Also, it was important for our wedding day that our photographers capture the candid moments of our guests, just enjoying the day as well. Abby and Adam did a wonderful job with this, capturing both the joyful and tranquil moments of our day. They really helped us appreciate the important moments of our wedding, and I can't recommend them enough!
