As a guy that is not comfortable in front of a camera, Tina quickly made me feel at ease. The studio is well setup and inviting. She is a very capable and professional photographer. It was amazing how quickly she processed the photos. I could not be more pleased with the photos and highly recommend her for anyones photography needs.

I needed to hire a professional photographer to feature one of our outstanding alumni from Western State Colorado University. Since the alumni lived in Washington, and we didn't have any contacts in the area, we carefully researched local photographers and spent hours pouring over reviews and samples. I'm very pleased that we selected Doug Sanford as our top choice. He responded very quickly to all calls, texts, and emails. Doug handled the arrangements for the photo session with the alumni, and produced exceptional pictures which exceeded our expectations. The price was exactly as quoted and a good value for such high quality work. This couldn't have gone more smoothly, even if it had been in our own town. Doug made my job easier. Do yourself a favor and go with Doug Sanford.

William is a true professional in every sense of the word. His expertise in achieving the goals I had for new professional portraits was top notch. He intuitively understood what I was going for before I even said the first word about it. He was flexible with storage options for the photos as well. Being in the spotlight as a magician makes it necessary that I have updated photos for publicity purposes, but I hate mostly every photo of myself but with his extensive knowledge of incredible lighting effects, William was able to create no less than 20 incredible images for me to pick from. I will definitely be making Tamarack Images my go to photographer for all my professional photos from now on and highly recommend that everyone else do the same.

I first met Joe Lee in 2011 when I spent seven days with him as we traveled with the Wreaths Across America convoy from Maine to Arlington National Cemetery. Joe conducted himself with the utmost professionalism at each of our many stops along the way. He captured the special moments on audio, video and in still shots enabling me to recount the entire trip as if I was there in person again. This past July, Joe flew to Minneapolis to volunteer as the photographer and videographer for a two day memorial event held in honor of my son, an Army Ranger KIA in 2009. The morning of the first day, my house was struck by lightning and a fire ensued. Joe lost some of his equipment but quickly replaced it on his own so he could still do what he came to. This was a chaotic situation that others may have become discouraged from, but not Joe! He stayed the course and never faltered from his commitment. Joe Lee is not only very professional, he is a very personable guy whose positive presence will add to any event. Highly recommend!

THIS IS THE PHOTOGRAPHER OF THE DECADE! I come from a huge family and I have been to a lot of weddings and also worked with a lot of photographers in the past. Gabe by far has been the absolute best of the best! He was prompt, he was professional, and he was witty and charismatic all at the same time. Even when photos weren't being taken, he had us all smiling ear to ear. By the end of the night I had a few family members asking for his business card! Loved loved loved him!

Cristi was fantastic! Exceeded our expectations and was a professional in every sense of the word. Loved that he was early which gave us a chance to see if our preferred location would work. He pointed out that we would have the sun in our eyes, not good and found another spot close by which was perfect! We were a large family group with lots of strong personalities. He was able to get us to move along and used humor to make our session fun. Very easy to communicate with and quickly answered all of my questions. We were all coming in from different states and he was very nice about working with the tight schedule we had. I would definitely use him again if I needed a professional photographer for ANY occasion. The pictures come out wonderful and everyone was surprised at how he was able to get us to quit talking long enough to have us all looking in the right direction. Thank you Cristi for making this a fun family memory with loads of beautiful pictures as well!

Thanks to DIM Productions for an amazing experience! Karmin is THE photographer that you want for familial events, sporting events, weddings, and et-cetera. I've hired Karmin a number of times and have never doubted that it was among the best decisions I've ever made. Karmin has impeccable timing, vision and experience to distinguish a great shot from a good one! She's personable, engaging, down-to-earth and just has a way with people that enthralls and disarms them. She's got an uncompromising standard at events and in her private studio. I cannot commend Karmin highly enough! -Al Johnson

Melodie was extremely personable. She was very responsive and made our group feel comfortable during the whole process. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking any type of picture. I have never used Thumbtack or this photographer's services before but I was and am pleasantly surprised with the outcome and very happy with my choice. She delivered the end product as promised and ahead of schedule even though she had several bookings that same day. I would definitely consider her for all future events. I feel like I have found the best and unwilling to settle for less!---J.Campbell

Nick was an absolute pleasure to work with. In addition to being a really nice man, he is a very talented photographer. He has a great eye for the photo that will capture your personality, or your child's personality. We were thrilled with our pictures! The session was very low key, and he was open to our thoughts, and he gave us suggestions as well. Everyone on our Christmas list is getting pictures this year!
