I had seen Brees 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 Brees photos and he was all in. We looked at other photographers and their work, and we agreed Brees work was definitely the right style for us. I didnt 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. Shes 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 dont 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!
Our medical office hired Shawn to take some professional portrait photos for our website! He also replied quickly once I put in a request through thumbtack. He was accommodating and worked very hard to get many shots! He had great ideas about lighting, style, posing, and decor. He had a great artistic eye! He was also very social and fun to work with. I would completely recommend him! And I would most definitely hire him again!
Zoe Burchard is a photographer that listens to the needs and wants of the designer. I have had nothing but positive experiences with Zoe's work and Zoe herself as I have worked with her on multiple occasions. She makes my work come to life in a photo. She is hard working, and nothing is acceptable but the absolute best. 10/10
Working with Jason on my daughter's senior pictures was such a fantastic experience from start to finish! Jason is very engaging, and was super responsive, flexible, and thoughtful throughout the whole process. He is a super nice guy, and it was clear that he wanted us to love both our experience and our portraits. And...his photos are beautiful. He has a great eye for incorporating light, depth and color, capturing personality, and for framing the images creatively. He was very relaxed and easy to work with, and he made the process fun! He really cared about getting us a great outcome, and he actively listened to our preferences and needs. Jason made the whole process simple -- from helping us identify a beautiful and easy location that gave us both urban and natural settings in one place, to working out a session plan so our time was used really well so we could get a lot of different settings, poses and outfits worked into our session time. After our session, Jason was super helpful in final edit/retouch, and sending sample images back and forth to make sure we were thrilled with our final portraits - no surprises! I highly recommend Jason!
There are photographers everywhere nowadays. It seems like anyone can go out and buy a fancy camera and study some poses and suddenly, they are a photographer. But what most photographers lack is a true artistic eye for detail, emotion and unique style that is true to their clients. Kyle is not only professional and great to work with, but he brings an experienced and detailed perspective that most other photographers cannot and do not offer. My family hired Kyle to take photos at our latest family reunion, and we were not disappointed. He did an amazing job capturing candid moments that showcased the joy, love and laughter within my family. My grandmother just turned 90 and we never know when our last gathering with her will be. But I feel really grateful knowing that Kyle helped us capture beautiful memories with her that look authentic and true to us. I will definitely be hiring Kyle again for other photography services!
Katrina has a way of capturing her subjects at exactly the right time - between frowns or just at the moment that their smile lights up their entire face. For many years, she took photos of my family. The last big photoshoot she did for us was just after my step-dad was diagnosed with Alzeimers. I wanted photos that showed him as we want to remember him. Katrina took his portrait in front of his neatly organized yard tools. It was PERFECT! In a 2 hour event, we got enough photos to fill a small book. Most of the photos were candid and all of them were delightful! I wish she still lived in Houston!
Greg was great. Professional, punctual, smart and efficient. Great use of light and settings to get the pro look. I'd use his services again. My one area that I wanted more of: I like Greg's eye but I wanted some more 'Holy WOW!' shots. Next time, I'd play a much bigger roll in directing as I was MIA most of the night. I want to LOVE this photographer's eye. With some photographers, I've learned , that means directing what you want.
It was a joy working with Rachel, she is passionate about her work, with a professional eye for detail. I am delighted with my photographs, which she graciously provided in a multitude of formats for my convenience. I highly recommend Rachel for any portrait photography needs you may have.
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.
JENNIFER IS SO AMAZING. Seriously, she understands what's happening at every angle. She plans and executes. She is perfect!!!! Never loved a photographer so much!
Phil is an awesome photographer and he creates a really professional, fun shoot environment. As a model, I interact with a lot of different photographers and working with Phil has been one of my best experiences. He makes the work fun, problem solves with ease, and is always responsive to questions and requests.
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!
After receiving 4 quotes from different photographers with a wide range of costs, I was uncertain which one I should choose. I narrowed it down to 2, but was still second guessing myself. One was a mid range cost and the other at the top of my budget. I decided to forward just the websites without the prices to a friend for assistance. He immediately came back and said that I had to go with Jeff Henkel, no questions. Jeff, of course, was the most expensive. So the decision was made and I contacted Jeff. I let him know that i'm the least photogenic person on the face of the earth. Jeff was reassuring and enthusiastic from the first email conversation to the last click of the camera. He is professional, friendly and approachable. The photos came out great and I couldn't be happier. So, to the next person that wonders if he/she should put out the extra cash, the answer is a resounding YES! You won't be disappointed.
What a terrific time! The photos Andrew took were full of life and fun, not just dull portraits. What he does with his camera and editing is really magical!
I definitely recommend Natalie and will hire her again in the future! I've hired her 3 times, both as a photographer and retoucher. 1. She photographed / retouched our small family wedding ceremony (7 people) -- including indoor dinner and outdoor family photos. 2. She photographed / retouched our larger wedding reception (100 people) -- outdoor and night photography. 3. She took professional headshots for me. She's warm and friendly - even family members and friends who claim they don't like having their photo taken loved working with her. People loved the photos, many ordered prints of themselves/their families from our wedding. She's also great at picking interesting backgrounds and I particularly like how she coaches you to bring out your best angles. Her retouching costs more, but definitely worth it for the photos we chose to print/hang. It's natural -- no cheesy photoshopping, so everyone looks great.
Vuong was absolutely amazing! She was willing to work around the chaotic Seattle weather and we ended up finding a time between rain showers. She had a ton of great ideas for poses so no two photos looked the same. The variety of locations at the arboretum made for a great shoot! Overall I would highly recommend using Vuong for portraits!
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. She's the type of photographer who will give you 100% of her timeless effort and will exceed your expectations! I would highly recommend her! She deserve to be recognized with her amazing skills.
Daniel was the first photographer to respond on Thumbtack and although I had others reach out to me, he was the most responsive and helpful. He provided some amazing pictures for me and my fiance to share for a lifetime. I strongly recommend Daniel for any special event. He said he is a traveling photographer, which is also a plus.
Emily was easy and fun to work with. She spent time learning about the event as well as post the shoot hand delivered the pictures in a usb (beautiful bag). Lots of photographers are great on the event date but beyond that it is so hard to get in touch with them. Emily is a true professional. The pictures have come out really well as well. Thankyou Emily for making our day special !
Josh is a great photographer to work with he is very patient easy-going and can get the shots you need . My band has had a great pleasure working with Josh and we will continue to work with him he captures us in our true elements on stage . He is also very creative in shooting us as well too he will climb behind amps get on top of drum risers to get perfectly angle shots of each band member individually and as a group together I highly recommend working with him
I had an amazing experience shooting with her. She is a true professional and a perfectionist. She knows her stuff. She knows the right frame for your portraits or photographs. She captures true moments. I highly recommend her.! You will ens up with nothing but amazing photos of yours.
