Flourish Photography is truly amazing, she dose amazing work, captured special features of my daughter . She is my go to Photographer!
I hired Shawn Nichols for a corporate event which took place in late February 2016. Shawn definitely deserves all five (if I could give any more, I would) stars and a glowing review! I will admit I was hesitant to hire someone off Thumbtack it was my first experience using Thumbtack and I didnt quite know what to expect but he blew it out of the park, completely delivered and really exceeded any of my expectations, with his work for this event! Shawn is going places with his photography, professionalism and strong work ethic and I look forward to following his career. Part of me hates to write such a great review for my own selfish reasons I want him for all of our events! :] Shawn was hired for our annual corporate Employee Appreciation Event, which I fully planned (and attended) for the first year since starting with my company. One of the things I had noticed about previous years events was the lack of good photography. I had seen previous years photos and thought they really left something to be desired. When I put out a bid on Thumbtack looking for photographers, Shawns website and artwork jumped out immediately, I believed he could deliver. I spoke with him first on the phone and let him know what I was looking for more artistic shots and his time, thoroughness and genuine excitement was clearly evident from our phone call. It seemed like he was exactly who I was looking for. About a month before the event, I called Shawn and asked him if he could meet me for coffee that week, to have about a fifteen minute meeting to discuss some items for the party. He went out of his way (literally) to be flexible to my schedule and that fifteen minute meeting turned in to over an hour of his time sitting in Starbucks and talking Photography. From there, he then drove with me to Joann Fabrics to hand-select a backdrop for the event that would photograph well and tailored to my vision. This whole afternoon he spent meeting with me and shopping for photography backgrounds was unpaid. He didnt have to do these extra things, he just did he was really going above and beyond before the event even took place! Fast forward to the day of the event. Shawn and his two assistants (oh yeah he brought two additional photographers to help him capture the night. I really felt we got a huge deal here because for the price of one photographer, we really got three! This was just another way Shawn went out of his way to ensure our event success) came a few hours early to set up one of our photography station backgrounds, and the get shots of a list of things before the event started. Leading up to the event, Shawn was incredible thorough in his communications; answering phone calls and emails quickly and in detail. He even thought of details I hadnt and prompted me to provide a list of shots I wanted to get prior to the event, during the event, asked for an event timeline and for specific individuals whom he and his assistants should be aware of. I really appreciated those questions in retrospect, as I think they really added to the coverage of the event, and with the laundry list of to-dos I had leading up to the party, I appreciated him taking the time and initiative to look out for our ultimate priorities photography and otherwise. Shawn and his assistants Rachel and Jeremiah were extremely professional, gracious, thoughtful to guests and efficient. They not only succeeded in my hopes for an hour of couple photos as guests arrived, then roaming event coverage; all three of them really went above and beyond to make sure every shot on that shot list was completed. Our guests loved having the backdrop couple photos, and I loved having all three of them there photographing it was amazing to get the extra coverage during that couple photo hour that I didnt know we would have! Shawn let me know the timeline of when I should expect photos delivered back, as the party wrapped up that night, but delivered a few days earlier. He met every goal I had with the photography aspect of the event. I told him several times that he was the easiest/best/nicest/most efficient vendor or staff I had working on our event, and I really do mean that. The photos back to me were in several files, so easy to open and access, and ranked by him in order of importance (for me). His love of photography and art is intrinsic and clear in his work. His photographs are beautiful and really highlighted the event for me, my company and so many of our guests. I look forward to having and using these photographs for years to come! During the time I was planning the event, and had been working with Shawn, I saw another opportunity come up within my company which I suggested Shawn, and he was hired for. Those pictures came back prior to our event, and when I saw those beautiful photos, I knew i was going to be happy with his work on the event. I cant say enough great things about Shawn Nichols. You are lucky if you get the opportunity to hire him for any event, wedding, party, or general photography needs. Shawn will make you feel like you are his only client, and will really take your vision and bring it to life. He is so genuine and charismatic and it is wonderful to see someone excel at something they love, and do so well! I look forward to working with Shawn (and hopefully Rachel and Jeremiah too!) on any future business, event or personal photography needs I have!
I did a friend/senior photo shoot with Zoe Burchard Photography. She is the best! She not only made the experience fantastic for me an my best friend but she was amazingly flexible and up for anything. I love how the photos turned out!
Greg is an experienced pro, with exceptional sports and news event photography skills. He is able to capture the emotional heart of a scene, something that makes the difference between good and great.
Nakean is hands down the best photographer I've worked with in my 10+ years as an aspiring musician. If your looking for a highly skilled, down-to-earth, chill photographer to do your next shoot, event, whatever - think Nakean Photography!
I am writing this testimonial for a true artist and a professional photographer. Ive met Jeffrey after enrolling in one of his classes many years ago. I was nicely surprised and very impressed by his knowledge of the subject and his passion for photography which make him a fine photographer. We all know that strategy matters and passion rules. Jeffrey has both in addition to being very creative and meaningful. He knows how to operate a camera, how to use it in order the get the best effect, and always capture the essence of the image. After meeting him as an instructor, I decided to use his service for my professional business because I know he would capture the important as he really gets the thorough picture of what we want to see and get. Photography is an art and Jeffrey is truly a competent photographer and an artist in his field. He is very experienced and knows his camera and any other camera students bring in the classroom. As a teacher, he is able to help you getting to know your camera and using it at its best. As a personal professional photographer, he knows what you need and the result is always impressive.
Milad did a great job! I called and arranged for the photo shoot with him after a very short notice. He drove to the venue and arrived more than half an hour before the function. He was professional, patient, respectful and very professional. The quality of his photography was fabulous! I would recommend him to anyone wanting to do a photo shoot. Great guy, great job!
She makes the whole experience easy and most of all fun! You get done and it felt like it ended too soon. I highly recommend Yuliya for any photography needs.
Daniel Curtean is a talented person of art. As a professional photographer, he has a natural ability to see and capture life moments that say more than thousands of words, moments that tell the story. Daniel has an excellent eye for details - his photos look nearly perfect because of his dedication to capture the moment in its most perfect way possible. My husband and I were very pleased with the photos Daniel took at our wedding! Even in their RAW state, they looked great. And I appreciate the fact that Daniel can photograph anything - nature, portraits, events, architecture - and he knows how to pull the feel and look in any of these areas. After all, a natural photographer is a photographer of all things.
Working with Matt was a pure joy! He made me feel very comfortable during my dance photoshoot and I loved how he was very open to experimentation. He has a great eye for aethetics and translates his vision seamlessly to the model while still allowing the models art to shine through. My experience was a wonderful collaborative process and I am very happy with the outcome!
Excellently thorough and intentional. Commissioned product was intuitive & effective, and communication was clear, informative, and pleasant.
So versatile! Justin can capture perfectly candid moments in natural settings beautifully as well as posed and prepped. He has a dark mysterious side to his fashion based photography, sometimes with a hint of hummer. He works with amazing and inovative designers in costume and makeup. His quality and frame is excellent and he treats the people he works with with the utmost respect. Justin has a deep passion and excitment for photography, and it shows in every one of his photos and it makes him really fun to work with.
Jennifer did the photography for our wedding. She was so easy to work with, and the photographs are so beautiful. I cannot wait to order my book and share the photos with my friends. Her unique photographic perspective resulted in photos that stand apart from standard wedding pictures. She is a true artist and professional; I highly recommend her and will gladly use her services again!
Kevin photographed my large painting then worked closely with me to edit it using his software. He did an outstanding job on all accounts. He was professional, experienced, and friendly. He went above and beyond what was expected in working with me- after I'd already paid him- on getting the right size image to send to the printshop. I look forward to working with him again in the future and highly redcommend him to other fine artists for photographing their work.
We're excited to work with these two fine young ladies! We were impressed with their finished presentations of earlier works and surprised to discover that we will be their first wedding experience! We are honored and very much looking forward to seeing them in the very near future, and discovering the ebb and flow of their creativity during our very special day.
Paris Corrick is motivated and passionate about her art! Yes, her photography is her art and it's exceptional! I have enjoyed and purchased many types of prints from Paris-nature shots, live music scenes, view scenes and portraits-always first class and top notch!
I would like to share with you my experience with Joey and his professional services. We contracted with Joey to manage our social media for my company, Portola Coffee Lab. We needed a fresh approach and by someone who could immerse himself in our industry to really add meaning to what we were posting. The imagery and content that Joey created really changed our online presence. It was interesting, relevant, and unique. Our Instagram went from mediocre to being nominated for the Best Instagram Account by O.C. Weekly's Best of 2015 contest. Most notable was the transformation of our appearance. The quality of his photography was truly fantastic. I felt his composition took what might be otherwise be an ordinary setting (our coffeehouses) and created something pleasing and artful. He is very creative, but professional. His images were never kitschy or overtly "advertisey." Most notable was the consistency in look he was able to achieve from setting to setting, and image to image. He would always edit the images in such a way that anyone seeing our feed could tell it was Portola created. Our online following jumped significantly under Joey's management. When he relocated, we were sad to see him go. I highly recommend his services for anyone wanting someone who truly takes to time to understand the customers needs and who puts out a top-notch professional product.

I am a new Seattle based artist. I am from Dallas, TX. My career began in art school in Brooklyn, New York. I received my college degree from Pratt Institute. My degree was in fine arts painting. It was there that my work took a turn from painting with oils to doing digital art with photography in my senior year. I love to paint with light and technology. As an artist, I am willing to teach both traditional painting in oils and acrylics, as well as innovative and new approaches to light, technology, and photography with digital art. Photoshop is a software that I sometimes use to enhance my images, which broadens my tool set as an artist into the realm of digital multimedia art and photography. Abstraction is my style. I am mostly fond of it for it explores a variety of emotions for healing and well-being. I am willing to explore deep emotions and provide a deeper understanding of what it means to be a part of the human experience. I will give insight, direction and evaluations through art critiques.
