Tim is an extremely outstanding photographer and demonstrated his professionalism when we hired his services for a social event party hosted by me recently. I had asked for photography services on Thumbtack & had got responses from almost 12 different professional companies, so it was quite competitive for Tim to make it through this competition and deliver his services up to my expectations. Some of the key qualities I noticed about Tim while we contracted him for his photography services were -
Prompt response to email communication during our initial discussions to enquire about his services.
Clear communication about the services offered.
Easy to work with, seemed to be a negotiator in terms of duration for the services offered.
Flexible to meet before the event at the venue, showed up before time (didn't had to wait), signed up a written contract with an initial deposit with clear data points of his scope of work.
Followed up regularly through calls & text messages before the event started and once again showed up 15 mins before my event started with his camera & accessories ready to capture every little moment.
Was very friendly with my guests, connected with them pretty well & made them feel comfortable while taking their pictures. Kudos to him on this since I had a great feedback from my guests.
Since it was an event for my little baby, he and his wife (who is also a photographer) were very proactive in capturing those special moments of my little one, which are difficult at times to capture unless you have a team of extremely experienced photographers.
Lastly, he returned me the DVD's of the pictures in a week after doing his thorough selection of photos & doing much needed artistic digital work so that the pictures were of premium quality & superior resolution.
I honestly recommend Tim Lane & his team for photography services. Tim is a professional photographer & knows his job well!
