Steve is wonderful, and he is friendly, relaxed, and professional. He is also spontaneous and that resulted in some really nice photographs of my family. Steve will be my first choice for a photographer for future family photos and events.

I will like to thank you for your patience. I didn't think anyone would capture one great picture with my kids running, crying and playing in two different direction. Thanks to you we now have a few pictures of our family. Thanks for all the hard work and great pics. I appreciate you working with my crazy schedule I thank you for going above and beyond to capture them in through the tears and crankiness. You will be our permanent photographer. I hope you enjoy the holidays.

Tamisha took pictures of our wedding outside at Umstead Park and she was fantastic. She guided us and gave advice to ensure the best photos and was a pleasure to work with. Great energy and great work!! We were so lucky to find her!

Tamisha was wonderful. She took over 600 pictures at my daughter's wedding. She put everyone at ease and was exceptionally good with our youngest family members. Even our priest was impressed with the selection of poses she used!

Kelley was the perfect photographer for our simple and elegant wedding at the Tucker House in Raleigh. We met and discussed our needs and after that we communicated as needed. She was professional, prepared and delivered the photos as expected. We loved having her with us at our wedding and documenting our special evening. We would definitely hire Kelley again. Thanks again Kelley!!

Matt was a pleasure to work with! We hired him to shoot our wedding at the Dunedin Golf Club on October 25, 2014. I was new to Thumbtack and was not sure how to go about choosing a photographer. We talked to several photographers but Matt had us at hello! We met with him before hand to discuss the overall vision of the work we expected and it went very well. He arrived early to the event (we arrived late!), he was very professional, and easy to work with. He is very creative in his work and was able to capture moments I never would have envisioned. Impersonation Station (Matt's version of a photo booth) made our wedding. It was the most organized and professional photo booths I have ever seen, and I have seen quite a few! My guests are still talking about the special moments he caught! In the package we purchased Matt included a video slideshow of the photographs he captured during our special day. He asked me before hand to include a few songs I would like featured on the video; he did not disappoint! The enthusiasm he had about his work was outstanding. You can really tell he enjoys what he does and was more than willing to go above and beyond to get the job done! I would highly recommend Matt for your next event, you will not be disappointed. We look forward to working with Matt again in the near future!

I have worked with Matt professionally, and personally. As a hairstylist, I work with many photographers, and some are intrusive and not creative. Matt's presence at an event is never over-bearing, and he takes the most creative shots. He has also photographed my family and that was a great experience too. He is professional, punctual and very creative!

Matt photographed our wedding and did a wonderful job. He arrived on time and didn't leave until we were satisfied that we had all the shots we wanted. Our wedding slideshow was put together beautifully. I would definitely hire Matt again next time I need a photographer.

I needed a head shot to put on the hospital website for my new job. This was my first time using Thumbtack. Mark was the first to respond and I ultimately chose him for the job because I thought his pricing was reasonable and he had many positive reviews. His photo studio is behind his house in a quaint neighborhood in Chapel Hill. I had a hard time getting my hair the way I wanted, but Mark was very patient and didn't make me feel rushed. He even held the camera phone (to use as a mirror) while I did my hair several times. The whole experience took about 45 mins after arrival. I paid after the photo shoot and received digital copies of the photos the very next day. The overall experience was positive and I would recommend Mark for the job! The only constructive feedback I have is to have a large mirror available in the studio.

I needed a professional headshot and Mark made it happen. He was very communicative and flexible with my schedule and budget. Great experience. I highly recommend Mark for your photography needs.

Brad was amazing!!! A great personality and a real trooper!! He did a wonderful job managing my large family and worked through my Photo list in record setting time!! He made me and the groom feel so comfortable, gave us many, many, laughs, and listened to our requests and suggestions. He captured the funny moments, the intimate moments, the laughs, the tears ect. I swear this man in a ninja. He was EVERYWHERE!!!! He came prepared and ready to work!! He was on his hands and knees in soaking wet grass, and blazing heat to ensure I got the shots I wanted!! Also I had photos the NEXT DAY!! Before me and my family left to head back home we all had a good cry over how beautiful the pictures turned out. He captured such sentimental pictures that I will cherish forever. I would highly recommend this photographer!! I have no regrets!! I could not have asked for better. This man sets the bar.

I could not have found a better photographer. Brad was so attentive to every little detail. He took the photos that I wanted and best of all, he enjoyed a little in our day like we asked him to. He has awesome work with natural light, and his pictures just look so amazing His work is that of those $2000+ photographers, but his price is not that! I would absolutely recommend him to anyone that does an outside wedding! Thank you so much Brad!

Brad is a wonderful photographer! He has done my photography for over a year now and I have been super pleased with all his work. He is also fantastic with children. He understands that kids are unpredictable at times and is wonderful in helping the child feel as comfortable as possible. I am the director of a preschool and he has also done work out there for us. I would highly recommend Brad Ipock for any photography needs you may have.

We scrambled to find a photographer days before our wedding. We got so lucky that Jeff was available (and within our budget). Jeff was easy to open up to, which is good when trying to capture personalities. The quality of the pictures he took amazed not only us but our family and friends as well.

Suzanne managed to work me and my puppies into her busy schedule before Christmas. I needed to have a picture to send to my Mom for Christmas . She took many pictures of me and my puppies and actually had some printed and left on my door step in time for me to get one to my Mom before Christmas. It all worked out perfectly. I had contacted 4 other recommended photographers before finding Suzanne on Thumbtack. None of the other photographers called me back. All of the photographers from Thumbtack actually contacted me. I appreciate the response from all of the photographers. Suzanne was pleasant to work with and did a great job. She worked so well with my puppies. I appreciate her taking the time to meet my schedule and request.

I don't even know where to begin, Dave is AMAZING! He went above and beyond for us. He was by far my favorite vendor we hired. He met me out at our venue months before the wedding to look around and get a feel for it. Anytime I had questions, he would answer me almost immediately. I got so many compliments on not only his photos but him as well. Everyone told me how much they loved my photographer and how awesome and funny he was. The photos turned out gorgeous. I was blown away at how great of a job Dave did. I could not have asked for a better photographer and am so happy that I had the opportunity to work with Dave. I will definitely be contacting him again very soon for family portraits.

I had the best time of my life with my photo shoot. Issac was ready to work. His props and backgrounds were on point. Very laid back atmosphere. He did his best to make my shoot awesome. If I could do it all over again I would. With out him I wouldn't have known how to pose. He helped me out alot and unlike other photographers he wasn't rushy he made sure if my hair was sticking up that it was fixed before he snapped the picture. I recommend any and everybody to go to dleaks.

We had a newborn photography session with Farid and it was beyond my expectations. Farid is very patient with kids. He spent a lot of time with my family so my two kids (one toddler and one newborn) are in their best mood for photography. He used natural light in all the photos and they all turned out great. I worked with different photographers in RTP area and my experience working with Farid was the best. He is really professional and easy to work with.

Mike is everything anyone could want in a photographer. He understands proper lighting and will make sure he he gets it. He will adjust blinds, overhead light, lamps or do whatever works to get the right shots. He'll stand on a ladder to get that just right light affect, position or pose that reflects your best features. He has an eye for detail helping to adjust clothing, hair...etc, so that he gets the very best photos of you. In advance to meeting he has a questionnaire that you will e-mail back to him to understand what you would like to show off and what you dont. Mike is excellent at posing you to accentuate or minimize your features. He's a pro at making you look you very best, and so personable with a shining personality you feel like he's an old friend. There's just not enough words to tell you how completely happy I was with my photo shoot!! My session went so well I will tell ALL of my friends & family and I will use no-one but Mike in the future for all my photography needs. Thanks Mike!!!

Mike is incredibly professional and creative. If you're looking for someone to improve your portfolio, look no further! Shoots are a constant give in take between him and his model, making a wonderful synergy and creative space. For weddings and other events, he notices the small details people put a lot of time into but also captures the candid moments clients didn't know they wanted but are delighted to see. A great guy and an great photographer!

Mike is one of the most creative and passionate photographers I've ever met, with a great eye for a perfect shot. His personality is fun and we laughed through most of our shoots. If you're looking for a professional (that is the key word) who cares about their craft I would recommend him 100 times over.

GracieLu Photography did a wonderful job with our daughters 3 month pics! She listened to what we were looking for and took her time to make sure we got the shots we were hoping for. She was open to our ideas and brought ideas of her own for the shoot. She was willing to come to our house to take the pictures to make them more personal and special for us. Very timely in getting pictures back to us and pricing is the best around! Would recommend GracieLu photography to all my friends!!
