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!
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!
Gregg was amazing from start to finish! He went above and beyond to make our sons birthday fun, memorable and best of all affordable! The pictures turned out great and he was so patient and helped our guests feel extremely comfortable. Everyone had a great time, he even brought his own props! Thank you a million times over, we will definitely be utilizing his services again in the future!
We were thrilled with the pictures from Jason Kim Photography! He was easy to work with, responded quickly and agreed to meet us in our preferred location. He clearly loves his work and his enjoyment was infectious - my son reluctantly agreed to getting senior pictures taken but ended up really enjoying the process and the results. My husband and I are amateur photographers but were disappointed with our own results when trying to photograph our son, so we're so glad we decided to work with Jason. We never would have able to get such amazing results; we can take good pictures but nothing like what Jason was able to produce. And I felt like the pictures we received were better than a lot of my friends who spent much more. He's a pleasure to work with, gives great results quickly and is a great value. I highly recommend!
Alex took amazing photos in a very short period of time - he is a wonderful and responsive photographer!
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. :)
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! :)
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.
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.
I got in touch with CHANDLER MEDIA AND DESIGN less than 24 hours before my shoot. ALEX was efficient in reaching out to me, offered an amazing quote and showed up on time, even beating me to the location. Then, when it was shoot time, he was quick to establish the best location within the space to shoot, engaging with me and the subjectdof the interview and he and Mykala, the other camera videographer, gave 1000% I will work with him again when I have to shoot in Seattle.
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.
Alex over-delivered. Lovely demeanor and lots of patience dealing with our big family. Even good in challenging indoor light w/ party colored disco lights going most of evening. A true find. Thanks Alex. (I had spent too much time planning this party, so I hired off Thumbtack out of being exasperated by all the planning details. Nice surprise to have found such a great photographer.)
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!
Wonderful photographer, he did an excellent job with my daughter 1st photo shoot. He was very patient and he knew what he was doing. Overall I gave him a five stars he deserves more.
Julia is truly gifted in photography. She has an eye for photos in different settings and lighting. Some photographers can be intrusive and make things a bit awkward, but that's not the case with Julia. She made me feel comfortable during my wedding because of her easygoing personality. Having people that was calm and knew what they were doing was very necessary for a day that took months to plan. Most importantly, I was pleasantly surprised at how well the photos turned out! I've had professional photos taken many times, but Julia somehow catches the smallest moments that pretty much sums up the event (back to my comment about having an eye for photography!). The location was not the fanciest or prettiest, but she made it look otherwise in the pictures. She was also quick to get the pictures back to us! Juliary Photography has my highest recommendation for your engagement/wedding/etc. photo needs.
Awesome service!!!! Couldn't of asked for a better photographer for the moment I asked my now fiancé to marry me.
Flying Toguga was recently apart of my wedding. We got a photo booth last minute so I was very stressed about it. Not only did they respond right away with a quote that was affordable. They also were able to come last minute. They we on time, professional and so much fun!! I would highly recomend them. Weddings can be stressful and they are stress free and the pics turned out great! It was a hit!! Thanks guys!!!
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.
ABSOLUTELY LOVED MY PHOTOS!!!! Both my sister and I have had our senior photos with Ben and we both loved them (she is one year older than me)! Super friendly and flexible. Both my sister and I didn't want super posed photos, we wanted them natural and relaxed looking since the whole super intense lighting, staged background, and typical photo poses wasn't our thing. Since my sister had Ben take her photos her senior year I was able to see how the photos came out, I decided to stick with him for my senior photos and was very happy to do so! Ben was able to help us come up with different ideas that looked amazing yet super laid back. Highly recommend him! Compared to other photographers he was super affordable! Taking photos can be pretty awkward in general (at least for me it is) but I felt completely comfortable and relaxed with him (sort of like hanging out with a friend who just so happens to be taking photos). If anyone is looking for a senior photo photographer Ben is definitely a good choice!
Alex did a awesome job taking portraits for me he's so creative, I loved how he edits them his editing style is wonderful and his price beat a lot of other photographers out there, he's talented at what he does
My husband and I have been looking for a good photographer that also has affordable prices, so we were really happy to stumble spoon heavenly creations photography! Lisa, the owner, was wonderful and made us feel so comfortable. We are pregnant with our first child so we really wanted to get pictures of this special time in our lives. She was on time, very friendly, and had a lot of cute ideas for pictures. Definitely would recommend to a friend and we will be using her services again in the future!
