We hired Elena to do our wedding in Gatlinburg. Neither of us are from the area, but we knew we wanted to hire a local photographer. We had already interviewed a couple of other local photographers before we contacted Elena through Thumbtack. We were immediately impressed by her use of natural light, and quickly confirmed both her professional photography training and also possession of a full set of camera lenses for a variety of photograph settings. After speaking with her both on the phone and also through email correspondence, we were ready to negotiate a contract. We mapped out a plan for a full day of wedding photography coverage. To our surprise, she desired to come early so she could set up and take photographs of the wedding dress and jewelry prior to the bride's makeup and hair preparations. In addition to being our photographer, she also became a true asset to our preparation (She noticed stray hair and gave suggestions as we put our assemble together). We believe her photography speaks for itself. She has natural creativity and a fun nature, but because of her professional training, she also knows how to use her tools, which are her camera, lenses, and lighting. She also is very creative with newly identified props, such as the wedding veil, under which we "hid". We have no critique of her photography, and we also specifically requested to have copies of the unedited images, which included plenty of fun and beautiful photographs which we find equally desirable as the edited ones. One thing that impressed us most about Elena is her willingness to receive feedback. We had noticed a few things that we asked her edit after she posted some images to our private site. Instead of taking offense, she was appreciative and thanked us for looking at them with a fresh set of eyes. Elena is also very punctual in how quickly she was able to provide the first set of fun preview photos on her facebook page, followed by our private website (with a downloadable feature), and our images on flash drive. It has been only 2 weeks after our wedding, and we have in our possession thousands of photographs to document our wedding day. We will be ordering prints and making photo books, calendars, cards, etc. probably for years to come :)

I contacted Elena Ganusova about taking my familiy's photo at our Gatlinburg reunion. Her pricing system seemed the simplest and the best of the photographers who responded to my Thumbtack request. I liked it that she charged one price and then all my family members could have access to download all the pictures she took of us (in high definition). She also provided a flash drive with the same pictures. Elena was very professional in every way. We worked out all the details via email and phone conversations. Elena arrived on time and was able to arrange the settings for the photo shots even though she had never been to our site previously. Her equipment was high quality and she was very easy to work with and directed my family with humor and confidence, despite dealing with young children who were not always fully cooperative. Everyone in my family was impressed with the quality of the photos Elena delivered and we were pleased that we were able to engage her services. The pictures were perfect; just what we wanted! Elena also made it easy to meet with her to pick up the flash drive and pictures from the photo shoot. I heartily recommend her to anyone looking for a professional photographer.

Elena is one of those daring photographers, the kind that doesn't care to take risks. She isn't trying to be different to impress anyone, she just has an overflow of ideas that reflect her passion for the Arts. She has been my favorite photographer to work with so far. I have no doubt in my mind she will conquer any photography project that comes her way!

Karen did such an amazing job! She is very sweet and talented! She took a lot of different pictures and backgrounds to give us many different picture options! All the pictures we have seen so far are perfect and we love them! She already gave us a sneak peak picture within only a couple hours and I loved that! Most photographers make you wait a month or more for just a sneak and we got one that very day from Karen! Very very happy with Karen boles photography!

She was wonderful! She was very attentive to detail, and did lots of"homework" to make sure my fiance and I got exactly what we wanted from our engagement shoot. She made the whole process comfortable and fun, which for someone as shy as me, is a huge comfort. Not to mention that her work is beautiful. We definitely recommend Mary Dodge Photography!

Mary was wonderful to work with, she was so patient and willing to go all over campus to make sure that I got the shots that I wanted for my Senior Pictures.

Brian is amazing, borderline unbelievable with his talents. I thought I had worked with good photographers before until I met him, and he put them to shame. He is my favorite person to work with, whether it's modeling photography or monologue recording. The first time I met him, he immediately put me to ease. He is so friendly, personable, and easy to talk to, but he also knows his craft and it shows very much. The quality is outstanding, he shows that he cares, and he is the perfect person to go to for any photography, recording, or editing. He will bring your vision to life and make it ten times better with his creativity and expertise!

Brian is absolutely phenomenal. He took a variety of headshot and other photos for my company to use for various marketing initiatives, from our website, to company brochures, to print and online advertising. From his responsiveness throughout the project, his willingness to collaborate to best meet our needs, his unmatched skills as a photographer, and the impressive end product, we were blown away. We are definitely lucky to have him in Knoxville!

Stephanie Richer has always gone above and beyond, volunteering her photography as a ministry at churches throughout the Knoxville diocese for many years. She was there to photograph my fiance's baptism, and it meant the world to us to that we were able to hire her as our wedding photographer. We simply couldn't imagine having anyone else there to capture those special moments in our lives. Although we planned a smaller wedding, Stephanie was flexible and accommodating. She was there for us from the very beginning, taking the time to meet and talk about our plans. Stephanie is so warm and easy to talk to, and we both felt very comfortable in working with her. About a month before our wedding, she did an engagement shoot with us at the Botanical Gardens. We were so excited, and it made us feel even more relaxed about the wedding shoot. On the day of our wedding at St. Albert the Great Catholic Church, Stephanie was there ahead of time with a second photographer who also made us feel at ease. From the wedding ceremony to the reception and portraits afterward, their passion for capturing the best shots was revealed in every image. The quality of Stephanie Richer's work and her professionalism are unparalleled. Months after the wedding, our family and friends are still talking about the amazing work she did for us!

I live in Nashville but needed a photographer in the Knoxville area for an extended family portrait. My family had only one date we were all available, the day after Thanksgiving. I was anxious about finding someone on such short notice for the day after a holiday. But AngelaDawn quickly replied to my Thumbtack request and was happy to work with us on our specific date. She was a joy! She always replied quickly to all emails and phone calls. She made sure to find out exactly what type of photo style we were wanting. And she did a great job working with our large family with many young children. We ended up with many wonderful pictures we will treasure always!

Verified review

Working with AngelaDawn was quite an unexpected pleasure. Having worked with other photographers in the past - where the experience was uncomfortable and the photos less than I had hoped for - working with AngelaDawn and her husband-assistant was wonderfully surprising. I felt very comfortable during the entire process, and the photos make me look better than reality! Highly recommended. The only downside is that I might be slightly addicted now, and do this again and again. Thank you, AngelaDawn

Josh was absolutely wonderful,can't say enough good things about him. He was very prompt in the set up of a last minute addition of videography. He was very polite to everyone around. I loved how he was always around capturing every moment and took requests when i asked for specfic things. He always knocked when coming back into the ladies room and was very respectful of privacy when we needed it. He arrived before we did and stayed until the very end. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding videographer.

Michael took tons of photos. He is very professional, using very high tech equipment. He contacted me when he was in heavy traffic but arrived just a few minutes late.

He took his time and made sure everything was picture perfect before shooting anything. I would definitely recommend him to my friends. I am sure the final product will be perfect.

Joanne's eye for photography is amazing. She is very patient and takes her time get the best lighting and perfect angle of every photo. I've never liked having my picture taken but Joanne has a knack for making it seem so natural and fun, I was truly disappointed the the session was over because I was having such a great time. If your looking for something different and someone you can trust to deliver top quality photos I recommend Joanne from Sunshine Portrait Studio on Demand.

I’m not going to lie, I felt a little nervous before I came in for the shoot. Although I love being the center of attention, this was a whole new experience to me, and I didn't really know what to expect or what would be expected of me. But, after being pampered by the hair and makeup artists, I felt like a princess! All the stress and nervousness I had before the shoot began to wear off as I sat there and talked about my day while being styled up. I would tell anyone considering senior year or family photos to go see Saray! The pictures I received were flawless and I know they're something I'll cherish forever. They're not the typical and often cheesy pictures I see plastered on my Facebook timeline or Pinterest boards; they're elegant, luxurious, and still professional, traits I try to capture in my own self. I'd have to say that the best thing overall was the new confidence I found in myself. The confidence that was instilled in me is something I can carry with me even after the shoot has ended.

Chelsey was friendly & attentive to the shots we wanted to capture for our bridal pictures. She was willing to travel to the Smoky Mountains & more than that-laid on the ground & climbed trees & waded in water to get "that shot". Chelsey is eager to please & laid back so it's easy to relax & be natural while she's snapping away. She has an eye for capturing everyday things in a beautiful perspective. (The custom water bottles come to mind, as well as my Chaco sandals I slipped on beneath my gown for the little trek up the mountain). She was professional & respectful to my family & did not draw attention to herself during our vows. I wish that all photographers knew how valuable this trait is. My wedding was five years ago & I'm still proud & thankful Chelsey was the one who immortalized it. I still smile & proudly show my photos to friends because they are a lasting memento of my happiest day. (The cake's long gone!) She is a phenomenal photographer & I will be using her for all my important events in the future.
