I've had several photo shoots with Diane at Chappell Studios and I have nothing but great things to say about her and her work. Her studio is beautiful and cozy. The environment very professional. Diane herself is a great photographer. She's sweet, gives great feedback and instruction during the shoot. She really knows what poses look good on the camera. Personally I think I take terrible pictures and I shy away from headshots, but my first photo shoot resulted in some amazing headshots that I loved. The light she captures is great, the photos clear. I would recommend Diane to everyone.

Lenox High School hired Stacey and her photo booth for their Junior Prom that was held May 16, 2015 at the Lenox Library. Stacey was an hour early and was completely set up waiting for her first customer (s) before the students arrived. The students couldn't wait to stand in line which actually went out on to the dance floor. She worked with the advisor to make sure the photo strips had the correct title of the prom - year - and colors. As an advisor, I was very impressed and the students were thrilled. Pictures were clear - couldn't ask for better service. I would highly recommend Stacey for any photography needs. Thank you....

I work for a non-profit called Wish of a Lifetime that grants life-enriching wishes to seniors across the country. We recently used Debbie for a wish and she was amazing. I called her on short notice and she couldn't have been more accommodating. We will definitely use her again. Great photographer and a great person!

Photographing 25 men women and children. His helper, Angela, took beautiful photographs and had to work under crazy conditions with a steep hill. She did a fabulous job carting stuff up and down the hill. we offered to help, but she refused. The pictures turned out so nice.

I took my new young dog for a private lesson with Melinda. We were already taking beginner agility lessons in a class at local dog club.. but Melinda's one-on-one was tailored for me and my dog. I've been trialing in agility for 13 years ... but Melinda has taught me new and better ways to train and practice. She is up to date on the latest techniques. She is over an hour drive for me, but well worth it.

Sootie Studios is run by an absolutely wonderful woman, Meri Belanger. She is the best photographer I have ever been to! Whether it be standing in the snow in the middle of winter, or laying on the ground getting all dirty in the fall, she will do anything to get the right shot. Meri has taken photos of my family and also of me and my boyfriend, and each time it only gets better! She has done my Niece's newborn, 3 month, 6 month, 9 month, 1 year cake smash, and 18 month photos and every time friends of mine ask where I get the amazing photos from. I also did a "trash the dress" photoshoot with my boyfriend which I strongly recommend doing with an old dress because the photos are priceless. Meri also has amazing rates for weddings and regular photo sessions. You won't find the quality photos she takes for the value and price that she offers. She also does memberships which offer many perks, such as getting a 1/2 price session and free prints. If you are looking to get photos done, I would strongly recommend going to Sootie Studios because you can't get a much better deal and photos that you get from Sootie! I would give Sootie Studios a million stars if I could!!!

We haven't received our pictures from Neal yet, but I feel confident about my 5/5 star review from the few he showed us on his camera. Neal was a last minute find for us when I realized that my mother-in-law had put too much thought and effort into our rehearsal dinner to not have professional photos. He hardly asked any questions at all which was Super helpful since our wedding was in a couple of days and we were busy beyond belief when we hired him. He was Amazing at getting everyone's attention for group shots and I feel like he made sure to capture every photo we'd care to have after the event. He came up with some very clever angles and positions. He was also so personable and pleasant to be around. My only regret is that we didn't have him with us for our whole wedding day. Highly recommend!!

Shane was extremely professional, he was able to bring my vision to life and made it an overall excellent experience for me. He made me feel comfortable throughout the entire process. From the beginning, Shane demonstrated a dedication to the project by meeting with me to discuss the shoot beforehand and being open with communication throughout the process, so I felt truly heard. He is a talented photographer, and provides a fun, exciting, comforting and professional environment. The end product was exactly what I wanted, and I am impressed with his talent and skill as a photographer as well as his commitment to making it a memorable experience. He put me at ease, made me laugh, and provided a beautiful final product. I will definitely be recommending Shane in the future.

We had our engagement shoot with Luis of Found Photo and he was phenomenal. Luis was courteous, professional, and had the true eye of an artist w/ his ideas and shots. We were particularly impressed with how he used our environment, and the natural beauty around us to create some beautiful shots. Where we saw traffic markings, bricks and empty intersections, he both saw and created art. We can’t wait to work with him again.

Square Knot Photography

New To Thumbtack

    About

    I began shooting pictures when I was about sixteen years old. I purchased a used 35 mm Topcon camera at a garage sale. The camera was a little quirky, and every so often the mirror would stick and ruin the picture I was taking. Every shot was an adventure. I learned how to use the camera and began shooting any subject I could find. Since that time, I have been taking photographs wherever I go, and every shot is still an adventure. Why Square Knot Photography The square knot is the joining knot. The square knot joins two different things together into a strong bond. The square knot represents the type of photographic services I hope to deliver to each of my clients. Knowing and understanding your photographic needs and being able to provide you with the best possible service is my goal.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    How much does it cost for a photographer for a wedding?

    Finding the right wedding photographer can make a big difference for your ceremony. Nationally, the average wedding photographer’s price ranges from $800 to $1,000, but costs can be much higher in areas like Chicago, New York or Los Angeles where some couples spend $2,000 to $5,000 or more for the photographer they want. Factors that can affect your wedding photographer prices include the photographer’s reputation and experience. Heavy hitters can command top rates, especially during wedding-season weekends. Day of the week also affects your cost. You may get a $200 discount on wedding photographer prices if you get married on a Friday in November rather than a Saturday in June. Time onsite is also an important cost factor. Hiring a photographer to snap photos from the moment you wake up until after last call at the reception is going to cost more than five hours of pictures during the day. Multiple photographers, special lighting, and videography will also increase your costs. Ultimately you want to find someone who has a style you love and can provide the number of edited shots you want for a price you can handle. Learn more about hiring a wedding photographer.
