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!
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
Greg and his son was the best photographers I have seen in a long time on time good photos funny props all around goodbye money well spent
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!
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!
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.
My family hired Katrina to do a photo shoot for my Grandmother's 75th Birthday dinner. The event was at Indochine Restaurant in Tacoma, and lasted for about four hours. Katrina was absolutely fantastic. We have a large family, and she accommodated all of our requests (which was no small feat) without any concern or frustration. We now have a large collection of family photos, both candid and staged, that have been beautifully edited and will don the walls of our homes for many years to come. I cannot thank her enough, and there is absolutely nothing I would change from the work that she completed. I would absolutely hire Katrina again, and you should too!
Greg is a great guy and was extremely easy to work with; he responded quickly to emails and phone calls, as well as delivered high quality photos. He was Tesla STEM High School's prom photographer, and did an excellent job of capturing snapshots of moments throughout the night (e.g. throughout dinner, dancing, etc.) in addition to taking standard photo booth pictures. Although Greg was initially hired only as a photo booth photographer, he was kind and generous enough to take event photos as well for no extra charge! Upon receiving payment, he delivered the photos immediately. I have no complaints and am very glad to have had the chance to work with Greg. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who needs a photographer at an event, as he is very affordable and fun to work with.
We are very impressed with their service. Alex was on time and videotaped our entire event. He was always available and also obliged the guests with taking their photos... Alex is very sincere and now we are eagerly waiting for the final video.
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.
Christina is an AMAZING photographer, with an amazing camera. My fiance and I had our engagement pictures done by Christina and couldn't be happier! She had so many unique and creative ideas and even let us try some of our ideas in shots! Every picture is literally worth a thousand words! We cannot wait until our next photo shoot with her! -Luke & Rianna
Alex was a last minute photographer and videographer for an event. He did a phenomenal job capturing the event and providing quick turnaround of the images. He seems to always be where the action was and his photos carry so much emotion from the event. highly recommended!
The team at Smokescreen were great, right from the point of getting a quote to post-event follow-ups. They were very professional and kept up good communication before the event. I wasn't at the event on the day, but I received excellent feedback from our team - all who said to get these guys back again next year! The turnaround on getting the videos and photos across to us was very fast, without jeopardising the quality. All the videos and photos look fantastic, and we love the special highlights video Smokescreen made - really sums up the best bits of the event. Thank you so much and we'll definitely be in touch again.
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!
Professional, navigated through a big party very well, and a prompt turnaround time in providing great photos of our event. Great communication from beginning to end.
I had an individual session done and she made me feel so beautiful. I was a little nervous but she did such a great job at making me feel very comfortable and confident. The pictures turned out gorgeous. We will now be doing family portraits. Angie is, by all means, a professional and talented photographer.
Super fun, the photographer was super nice and outgoing and always knew what to do to make you smile or laugh (: loved it !
He is amazing!! I couldnt have asked for more in a photographer!! He was kind, professional and great with my daughters. We plan to hire him for many more events in the future. You will be so pleased with your experience if you choose to work with Stan. Thank you again, Thomas family
Pros: Christine was quick to respond and easy to book with via Thumbtack and email. She made our baby feel comfortable and was easy to have in our home for family portraits. She brought all of the equipment (including items for solo baby shots) and was extremely patient with our son who was very wiggly. At the end of the day, we got the shots we wanted and are very happy with the quality. Cons: The details matter, and little things like a shirt being caught up in jeans so it was bunched weren’t corrected/adjusted by her during the shoot. This meant a few of the family portraits looked unfinished/rough (though there were plenty to choose from so we simply selected others to keep). Know going in that you won’t get a lot of direction so check that things are the way you want during the session.
The team at Flying Tortuga was exactly what I was looking for in a wedding photographer. They were happy to work with me last minute and at an unbelievable price. They faced many challenges in getting great pictures of the event, but in the end got many that I will treasure for years to come. Thank you!
