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!

Lara exceeded my expectations! She took my portraits at a location of my choosing and was very patient and flexible with my busy schedule. We shot for a couple hours but her personality and conversation helped pass the time quickly. My photos were ready to view with in a few days and there were so many great options it took me over a week to decide! Great work! I will recommend her to friends, family, and colleagues in the future.

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!

Mary was great to work with. 1) She always responded to emails and phone calls quickly. 2) She was flexible with our schedule for the bridal portraits (my daughter lives out of town) and got them back quickly so we could have a print to display at the wedding. She had no problem with the wedding being at our church and the reception at another location. 3) I LOVE her pictures. One thing that impressed me on her web-page was the indoor shots - many photographers have lots of outdoor shots but few indoor ones. The wedding and reception were both inside (it was July!) and she did a great job. She was very discreet and managed to capture the beauty, sacredness, and joy of the day. Somehow she managed to convince my daughter and her husband to step outside for some quick (and wonderful) shots and then continued the magic indoors. 4) Compared to many other photographers, she has very reasonable rates. 5) She truly loves her job and her joy bubbles out to everyone around - it was more like she was an old friend rather than "just" a photographer. I will definitely contact Mary for other occasions!

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.

Debbie strives to get the best picture possible. You feel at ease during the shoot and the end result is beautiful portraits you will cherish for a lifetime. I have never had portraits taken outside of a studio before and I am thrilled with the end result. We will definitely have Debbie take our photos in the future!

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!

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!

I commissioned Andy for event photography for my organization, Art Battle Austin. He is incredible to work with. Andy's professionalism is second to none. His eye for the shot and his ability to create a beautiful end product is inspiring. Andy's shots have that "wow factor" you would hope to get from a professional photographer. I highly recommend Andy for any event photography and portrait photography.

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!

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.

    She is an amazing photographer who helped me feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera. BONUS she is an equally talented makeup artist. I had an impromptu shoot afterwards that required me to get wet and the makeup still stayed in place and looked great. I recommend her to everyone.
