I had seen Bree’s work on Facebook when a longtime friend had some pictures done for her boyfriend. My friend looked beautiful, and I wondered if my hubby would be interested in me taking any pics as a present for his big 4-0. I showed him Bree’s photos and he was all in. We looked at other photographers and their work, and we agreed Bree’s work was definitely the right style for us. I didn’t need to look like an art piece, heck, if I turned out half as gorgeous as my friend, it would all be okay by me! So I picked up the phone on a Saturday afternoon and talked to Bree. Working with Bree was easy. In one phone call I was set up for a session with so many choices I thought my head would spin. While I had the option of choosing an outfit from her extensive collection with lots of size range, I ended up using an outfit from home with one small missing piece. I could not find shoes I liked, and here was Bree to the rescue with not only one, but 3 pairs of shoes to choose the right pair! My makeup made me look at least 10 years younger, my hair was beautiful, and the Mimosas divine! Bree is really good at getting to know you in a short period of time so you are comfortable and opens up her home studio in an absolutely welcoming way. She’s good at her job, and has great passion for showing her subject in a way that is visually striking, and yet very true to the personality of the person on the other end of the camera. I was apprehensive, being in the midst of a weight loss journey, and not being as confident at photographing well, and Bree put me at ease. The only complaint I had was that I smiled so much I should have brought Vaseline for my teeth like a supermodel. :-) Then we got the images. I was so beautiful. Shames me to say I forgot I could look so beautiful. I don’t think my husband has skipped looking at the photos at least once a day since we got them back! This was a total game changer for my self confidence and I would do it again in a minute- and then do it again!

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 didn’t 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, Shawn’s 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 didn’t 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 hadn’t 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 didn’t 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 can’t 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!

Working with Christine was awesome. She was reliable and communicative throughout the wedding planning process. Photographers need to be strict and quick when taking photos and Christine was definitely that. I never felt like the process dragged on, or we were losing time because family members and friends were not cooperating with taking pictures. Despite our family and friends taking (probably) longer than normal to get in the photos and move along, Christine helped make sure we were sticking to the schedule and getting to our reception on time. I would definitely recommend Christine to any bride looking for a good photographer who knows how to get the job done.

Seattle Facebooth was great. Definitely a highlight for our guests who enjoyed the experience during our wedding. The props were high quality and fun. The photographer engaged the audience and encouraged photos. Seattle Facebooth setup early with minimal distraction to the guests. Overall, a great experience. Would recommend again. We even had the opportunity to place our logo on the photo strips. And to make sure we got each photo, the photographer gave us a copy of all the pics....what more could you want!!! Awesome experience.

I have rented and been to many weddings and events with photo-booths. NONE ever as organized, clever and fun as Elizabeth's! Elizabeth was speedy, professional and kind during the entire booking process. Her rates were INCREDIBLY affordable in comparison to many quotes I received and she brought more props than I have ever seen! It is lovely to find someone who takes so much pride her her work! Every guest that participated went home with a souvenir and had nothing but great things to say about the booth, Elizabeth and her helpers! I will highly recommend her to anyone looking for a photo-booth in the future! :)

Let me begin by saying Kyle is very patient, and has an amazing attitude towards life. The kind of guy you would want as a friend for life! I was planning my wedding under 3 months and had very little information when I first booked photographers. Kyle was incredibly patient with my lack of clarity on how many hours I needed, and where I needed him, etc. He checked in with me regularly only to see how I was doing, empathizing with how stressful weddings are and assuring me that things will go well. In hindsight, his assuring messages were a huge help in feeling less stressed. I can't thank him enough! He also offered to help me find other photographers that would meet my budget in case he didn't meet my budget, which I personally thought was him going above and beyond. My now husband also does photography (although not wedding photography) and he thought Kyle was really incredibly. On the day of the wedding, Kyle was awesome. His crew was also really fun. It felt like we had known everyone for a long time and they were just at our wedding taking photos like everyone else. Everyone had a great time with Kyle. Both my mother and my husband's mother really liked him. My friends who were setting up the wedding also enjoyed his company and were getting along with him like they had known him for years! I think having a photographer that can leave you feeling at ease, and like yourself is highly crucial especially at a stressful event like a wedding. I appreciate Kyle letting me bust out my funny faces when smiling was too much. We've had a sneak peak of our photos and we are in love and yearning for more! They look magical. :)

Greg helped us film a storytelling event Seattle University that captured the tales and anecdotes of folks who had served at a rural Alaska school in the 1950s, and subsequently began a Jesuit volunteer movement that our organization, Jesuit Volunteer Corps Northwest, continues today. Greg was affordable, professional, and very easy to work with, especially on a tight time schedule, which we very much appreciated.

It was wonderful working with Jeniffer. She was thoroughly professional in all aspects. It was first time for us working with a professional photographer and she made it comfortable to us. Was well versed with the location and knew where we would get best pictures. She sent us the pictures well before she said she would. Would be very happy hiring her again.

Rachel Alves is a pro top to bottom. I booked her for a mini portrait session and she was able to book it with in days of my inquiry. Her studio is right in lower Queen Anne, so super convenient. On picture day, she made me feel comfortable right away, was creative in her approaches, and thought of lots of different poses to capture the most natural look. She turned around the final images quickly so I could get a new marketing campaign up and running with a fresh look with no fuss. And I could see what a professional she is, because I fancy myself a photographer too! She makes it look easy!

John is by far one of the best photographers we've worked with—we hire photographers in 12 cities for corporate events we produce. He arrived early, took all the shots on our shot list, and is just a friendly guy. His work is just as great—the composition, color, and style. It's not easy to find a corporate photographer whose work and professionalism are of high-quality. Duffernutter Photography is our top pick for Seattle photography—and it should be yours too!

I'm glad that I chose Camille as our photographer. My boyfriend and I had a pleasure working with her. Her work is amazing and our photos came out beautiful. Looking through our photos brought me indescribable feelings of happiness, love, and every emotion in between! Camille was able to capture all the beautiful moments we can look back on for the rest of our lives.

A good photographer is also a good director. David knows how to direct his subjects to get great shots and also teaches them how to position themselves - eyes, head, body - to get the best shot/angle for future photo shoots...and perfect selfies! 😊
