  1. #1 Chris Gargasz Photography, LLC

    (29 reviews)

    Kathryn C.

    Chris was very professional. He was flexible about the weather and willing to take photos of my family on a cool winter day when all my kids were visiting for Christmas. We have 6 children, with three of them married and 2 grandchildren, so 13 all together and Chris had lots of great ideas for poses of our large family and for the smaller family groups. We had a great experience during our photo sessions with him.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Nadia's Portfolio - Portrait Photography

(7 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

My favorite thing about my job is the people! I love to meet and talk with my amazing customers. They are all so diverse, and getting to know them is always a pleasure. Bringing out their personalities during our photo sessions is a fun challenge. To have them enjoy the photos in the end really makes my day every time!

Who or what inspired you to start your business?

I have always been artistic, and I got hooked on photography in high school. I developed quite a passion for it, and my friends and family encouraged me. Without their support, I wouldn't be where I am today. I just kept practicing. It was so fun and gratifying to me that I decided this was what I wanted to do. So, I started my own little business with senior portraits, and it just grew from there.

    Amber Kana Photography

    (10 reviews)

    On April 13, 2013 I got married and Amber Chun was our Wedding Photographer and made our Wedding Cake it was a White 3 tier with 2 spacers in between wrapped with Red Ribbon and handmade Red Roses on top and on each layer of the cake and with 3 different cake flavors and Cream Cheese Icing and as a filling. I need to say that the cake was a design that I had picked off the Internet and she hadn't never done anything like that before with the spacers and she done an outstanding job. She came and set up the cake and then took Pre Ceremony pictures along with the full coverage of the Ceremony, Reception and more pictures of the Groom and I along with our Family and Friends and just the two of us. The cake was so beauitful and delicous it really stood out everyone at the wedding complimented on how beauitful and good it was and asking who done our cake. As a Photographer she really done an excellant job she took pictures after pictures and captured every moment of our special day. She stayed on top of everything and done an excellant job. After the Wedding she sent us a Preview of Our Wedding and I was so pleased with her work. I couldn't believe how good they turned out and we was so glad that we choose her to be our Photographer on our special day. She put all of the pictures that she had took on to a disc and gave me copyrights and I was able to choose the pictures and make copys of what I wanted to. She also made edits to any pictures that I wanted done. She isn't like some of these other photographers she really goes way beyond your exspectations of what you want. There isn't anything that I would have her do differently and we look foward to working with her again in the future. If you are looking for someone to do a great job rather it be a Photographer or Cake and be satisfied with she is the one to get. All I have to say is MONEY WELL SPENT!!!

    Let me first say that I am so pleased with my pictures from my engagement shoot! Jamie is very accommodating and open-minded. She also gives good suggestions when you're not sure what you want to do. We were in art school together so I know she has the skills and talents to see what self-taught photographers might not always understand. When we got the photos back, I was like YES YES YES (her understanding of composition and elements are apparent)! On top of that, she is a very determined and works to get you exactly what you want!

    James DeCamp Photography

    (6 reviews)

    James DeCamp is Amazing! Jim and his daughter did an amazing job! They did my photos for my engagement, rehearsal dinner, wedding and reception. I'm very picky with my photography and he was able to understand exactly what we wanted. He was flexible in using multiple cameras, multiple locations all while capturing the moment. Having he and his daughter available allowed for two different perspectives on the formal shots as well as not missing a moment of our big day. The candid photos really captured the whole day and allowed us to see how much fun everyone was having. DeCamp was worth every penny! Having an award winning photographer that is well known in Columbus was the reason we picked Jim! His quality, professionalism and talent is why I recommend him to everyone looking for a photographer.

    Look Beyond The Lens

    I contracted Ms. Williams to photograph my daughters wedding in Reno, NV. She came in a couple days in advance to prepare for any and all needs from the shower through rehearsal dinner, bridal party preparation, wedding and reception and gift opening the next morning. The wedding day started at 9:00am and did not end until 11:00 pm and she was there to provide photo service and support during the entire day. Including attempting to take a picture while tripping backwards over a curb. Getting up laughing and continuing on. (she got the shot too) Upon receipt of the proofs Ms. Williams showed us an example of an untouched and a retouched photo of my grandson. He had a massive blemish on his cheekbone; the retouched photo showed smooth skin with no sign of the blemish. The girls in the wedding party all had acne scars that were totally removed. I despise having my photo taken and every single picture of me was lovely. My daughter while beautiful actually looked as regal as Grace Kelly in some images. With the cost for travel and service received the the expense involved for the photography was a wonderful surprise. Print prices were the best I have seen and she did not expect me to chose from her packages she customized a package that suited my needs perfectly. My daughter and son-in-law were extremely pleased with the package they ordered. Not to mention she will allow us to order prints at any time, we desire in the future whether it is this year or in 10 years. The quality of the prints supplied were amazing and showed clear, concise color unlike any photo's I have ever had. Including professional photography and senior portraits I had contracted from other providers over the years. Ms. Williams handled the discord between the relatives and parents of the bride and groom with tact and gentle professionalism. Making the day easy and conflict free for the bride and groom. I fully recommend the services of Ms. Williams and Look Beyond The Lens for individual, family, pet, wedding, senior pictures and even artistic photography. I will use her again for all my photographic needs. In fact I purchased one of her artistic images as a gift for my son last Christmas.
