This was my first time doing studio portraits, and Paul made me feel as though I had done it several times! He was very energetic and provided great guidance throughout the shoot. I really love how the photos came out and I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs great photos!

Anna was great, she is upbeat and a lot of fun to work with. She took a family portrait of me and my three daughters. She was extremely patient with my kids and is very personable. I would highly recommend Anna. I won't hesitate myself using Anna's services again!

Working with Doc was a blast! He is caring and accommodating, even on short-notice. He has a real passion for what he does and it shows in his work. Connecting with him was seamless, and he made absolutely sure we were satisfied with what we were getting, before and after. He's a real professional, his portraits took our breath away, and he's definitely worth your time.

My wife and I hired Errich last month to capture our 10 year anniversary party in the Domain (Austin). Across the board, we had a wonderful experience - responsiveness and preparation in advance of the event, punctuality on the event day, and very accommodating to our various needs during the two hour event. This was a college reunion of sorts and our biggest ask was to capture some portraits of us, our friends and a group shot at the end. Not only did Errich capture this, but he snapped dozens of really neat, candid shots of us welcoming guests, eating, drinking and being merry. Overall, a great experience and glad we went with him.

Doug is truly an artist with his camera. This was a rare opportunity to have the whole family here at Christmas and with his skills setting the scene and poses every picture was perfect. Doug Miller will be our family photographer from here on out. Thanks Doug. We are so thankful you replied through Thumbtack!

Amy was exceptional! She was on time, friendly, and went out of her way to get me the shots I wanted for our family portraits! She also gave great recommendations for poses that I hadn't considered. The pictures came out nicer that I could have imagined! The session was long with many poses. Great, great value! Thanks so much!

Brandon worked on 3 photo shoots for me, two shoots for bodybuilding and one shoot for family portraits. In all three instances it was simply a pleasure having Brandon capture my special moments. He was easy going, listened to my needs/wants, he was creative, attentive to detail, and he simply put out a high quality service and a high quality product...the pics! You bet he's my go to for my future bodybuilding and family pics :)

Our original email photographer got her dates mixed up, and so I was really stressed about finding a photographer that could do it in the same weekend that we planned for. Christopher was great, he scheduled us for that following Monday, which worked out really well for us. I was a little worried that our pictures would come out darker than expected because the sky was gloomy that day, but they turned out AWESOME (I’ve attached some below). Basically, Christopher is awesome and you should hire him.

I had a wonderful experience using Glaze. He delivered exactly what I requested on time. He made the entire process really easy for someone that simply had a rough idea/picture of what they wanted. Great artist. Would use again in a heartbeat.

Amy was exceptional. She gave us many fantastic ideas for our family portraits and took the time to make sure to capture all the poses we were wanting. She also was great with my two/four year old and knew how to keep their attention for the entire length of the shoot (nothing short of a miracle!) Loved, loved how the photos turned out and can't wait to get prints to hang in our house. Will definitely be recommending Amy to all my friends!

RJ Johnson photographed me after years of avoiding taking pictures thinking that I was just un-photogenic. He assured me that wasn't the case. I admit I was skeptical. The photo shoot itself was great. I had a professional makeup artist who did hair and makeup. During the photo shoot, he played my favorite music. I danced around, laughed, and sang. The results were fantastic. Not only did I look good, he was able to capture my spirit. I highly recommend working with RJ.

I selected and used M.Lane for both my headshots and for personal family event portraits. Audrey's work is so impressive and unique I've received comments from friends and clients who've then contacted her for their events. There's just something remarkable about Audrey's ability to see the picture and capture the right moments. I'm thrilled with her work. Highly recommend!

Alyssa did a wonderful job with our family portraits. Working with a toddler can be difficult, but Alyssa came prepared with bubbles and worked around our 2-year old. She has a friendly personality that helped us feel at ease and she did a great job of "going with the flow" and accommodating our requests. Alyssa sent me the edited photos from the session very quickly and they were absolutely beautiful. I look forward to working with her again in the future!

Phil always does such a great job with our photos, whether they are for events or individual portraits. At large events, he is able to capture specific moments in the midst of chaos. His portraits are relaxed and natural, a testament to how good he is with people. Hire him!
