I wanted to get a professional photographer to capture my proposal but waited until the very last minute to find one. I was getting worried I wouldnt be able to book one at all but then Steve came to my rescue. I was nervous about finding the perfect location that was private, would photograph well and fit into my proposal plan. He helped me work through a few different sites and even met with me a few hours before in order to work through the plan together, which was hugely comforting to me. The proposal went smoothly and we had the edited photos to browse through the VERY NEXT day! The photos looked beautiful and we had a wide selection to choose from. I would definitely book Steve again for any of my photograph needs.

Steve was easily one of the best professionals I've worked with in a long time. Prompt communication, easy to work with, quick turnaround, and outstanding quality. I will definitely use Steve again and refer him to anyone needing a professional photographer!!

Kelley Bennett is a professional at what she does.I worked with an Event Planner for my Baby Shower. She suggested a professional photographer to take pictures of the decor and to make sure every moment was captured through out the day and that was exactly what Kelley did. She showed up on time and got beautiful photos of the decor and set up before my guests arrived. We had a few hiccups with my event not starting on time, but she was still flexible enough to stay past our official contracted time. She got countless photos with my guests and my fiance and I and she got photos of the guests enjoying themselves though out the event (candid). There were some chaotic moments like unwrapping gifts that she captured with ease, a camera phone wouldn't have even come close. Even after the event she has worked well with my event planner getting her the photos that she needs and getting the print cd to me in less than a week so that I can have the photos I need. It was definitely worth the investment and I have already spoken with her about newborn photos and family photos. As long as she is in the Gainesville area she will be my go to Photographer for all of my photography needs. I have also recommended her to a friend who is getting married later this year. Choose Kelley and you will not be disappointed!

Kelley was our photographer for a Grand Opening Event. She captured everything that I requested with an artistic eye! There were wonderful still shots of the food, alcohol vendors and clubhouse and great candid shots of the attendees! I would definitely recommend Kelley to be your photographer and would use her services again.

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.

Mark was the first to respond on thumbtack. The process was easy. He was very flexible with scheduling. I met him at this house for the photo shoot. He then turned the pics into professional, polished headshots! I’m very happy with the process & the quality of the photos. I would definitely recommend Mark Terry for your photo needs.

Brad was great and created beautiful memories of our special day. Brad worked with my schedule to meet with me and was patient and understanding when I gave him my vision for the day. He brought recent work (a wedding) to show me his style and what he could do. Brad arrived on time the day of the wedding and gave us so many shots that are so beautiful. Brad is a fabulous photographer and his so great to work with. You will not go wrong with hiring him for your events, my husband and I will definitely be using him again in the future! Thank you Brad for capturing our day so beautifully!

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 was so awesome to work with. We had our engagement photos and wedding photos done with him. I'm so glad to have had Brad as our photographer, he was great! From his creativity to his patients with our dogs, that were in pictures with us. I couldn't thank him enough. I highly, highly recommend him!

Class Act! Wonderful photographer and team! Our business go-to now! Highly recommend! We have a high end jewelry business and Jeff did a terrific job of highlighting on the jewelry while still capturing the beauty of the models as we wanted "life-style" images.

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.

Eabby is truly an amazing photographer! She always makes you feel so comfortable and is open to fun ideas. We got so many comments on our pictures. She has the best ideas and is not afraid to try pictures that will look totally amazing! She was good we hired her again to do some family pictures this spring (2013). I would highly recommend Eabby to anyone, she is the greatest. Thanks Eabby!

Eabby is an extremely talented photographer. She truly has a skill for bringing out the photogenic side of people and inanimate objects! We used her to take some corporate photos of our senior staff, and they all turned out really well. She also took some nice photos of our office building - exterior and interior. If you want high quality, above average photography - she's your woman.

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.

With my experience of photographers I can honestly say Phillip is one of the better photographers in the field today. The price is fair and the shots taken seem to be well thought-out from the years of experience. All around a good job! The only thing that I would say to be aware of is the time frame of the shoot. I was expecting to be in and out for the most part, however Phillip is somewhat meticulous of the shots and you can really notice the attention to detail when you get your final product. So just be prepared if he’s not happy with what it looks like you’ll be there until it is right. Thanks again, Jon

After years of photos and photographers we finally had a photo we loved and felt like we could display and share with our family. Phil knew exactly how we needed to be posed to achieve the result we wanted. He also has taken some wonderful pictures of our granddaughter, property and our dogs. We were totally happy with Thalheimer Photography and highly recommend them.

I had a wonderful experience with Doug! He was very funny, easy-going, and made me feel comfortable during our outdoor photo shoot in breezy, 50 degree temperatures and moderate sunlight. As someone whose face tends to awkwardly freeze up after holding a smile for more than 4 seconds, he was very willing to work with me and knew all the right angles to capture my best face. The quality of the pictures I received were phenomenal; I wasn't sure of the specific style of photos I wanted, other than "a nice, outdoor portrait of myself for social media purposes", but Doug gave me a mix of well-edited photos in various styles that could easily be applied to more professional uses...like say, a book cover, or, a billboard, or a collage. His pricing is extremely fair and competitive for this area, and I received the edited photos the very next evening! I will definitely be hiring him again soon and encourage all Raleigh-folk to do the same.

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.

We seriously could not have asked for a better photographer. MSV was punctual, friendly, understanding of the pressures of the day and captured everything we wanted to express in our birthday photos and more! There is a reason he's so well reviewed and popular. Hands down the nicest guy to work with throughout our entire birthday planning process. Our birthday was on September 9th and its september 18th as i'm writing this and he emailed me and said that our photos are ready! So fast!. Don't settle. MSV is the BEST!

I recently moved to Durham and we were in search of a professional photographer to take some pics for our family gathering. I approached this guy through one of my friends and I found this guy passionate about photography. I asked him to do a trial shoot and I like the way of perfection and commitment to his work. He would be our primary choice for any family gatherings and any household functions. I would definitely recommend this guy for any photography sessions you would like to have.

Nicole was the photographer for Housewives in the City of New Bern’s Girls Night Out event with over 60 people in attendance. I have never had so many compliments about a photographer before. She makes you feel and look amazing. Many of the ladies commented on our event page about the high quality of the photos and how nice she was. To be totally honest, I’ve never had anyone gush about the pictures at any of our past events before. I don’t know the technical term but she adds the wow factor to her pictures. From lighting to posing to making you smile she is the best at it. I also hired her for my son’s wedding. I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves. They were perfect. She really captured the sweetness and love between the bride and groom and the happiness of those in attendance. I highly recommend Good Life Photography and Nicole Sanderson. You will be so happy to have hired her. Thank you Nicole and I look forward to seeing you soon at our next event!
