I had put off getting new headshots for various reasons. The main reason being, I didn't know where to start. I also assumed it would be a long process. How do I find the right photographer and how long before I would be holding one or more finished 8x10's in my hand? I then found myself facing a deadline to produce a current headshot of myself in less than 2 weeks. This, of course, only added to my stress about putting this endeavor off for so long. And so my quest began. What better place to start than online. Actually, is there even any other way anymore? Well, I stumbled across Thumbtack shortly after beginning my search, and within mere hours I received an email response from Randy! Right away I was impressed by him! His professionalism was apparent in his extremely prompt initial response, and in our continued exchanges. I was provided a link to his website and was able to view galleries of his work. It was impressive to see the range of events he photographs, everything from formal once-in-a-lifetime wedding events, to personal one-on-one headshot sessions such as I required. After seeing the beautiful images he captured, and reading the glowing client reviews, I had every confidence that I had found my photographer! Randy was extremely accommodating and flexible, which meant we were able to set up an appointment just a few days later! Randy made me feel comfortable and relaxed right away. It was so helpful that he spends time conversing and getting to know his clients, instead of just jumping into a photo session the minute you enter his studio. I appreciated him understanding how to help people relax and feel more natural during the actual session, so that he can capture those images of your best, natural self! As far as the photos themselves, I told Randy I would be pleased to have just 2 or 3 shots I was happy with. I wasn't expecting to have so many images to choose from that it actually made it difficult to select what headshot to use for my immediate need! It was a great problem to have! I would definitely recommend Randy to anyone needing a professional, collaborative, accommodating, friendly, talented photographer! Thank you, Randy, for an amazing photo session and so many headshots that I love!
