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!
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.
I would highly recommend Murtaza for your photography needs. We hired him for senior portraits as he offered the same amount of content at a cheaper rate. We were expecting to potentially sacrifice some quality, but Murtaza's photos were just as good if not better than other professional portraits we had taken in the past by Yuen Lui. He also provided prompt communication and speedy (yet quality) editing to get the photos to us not long after the shoot. Overall great experience!
I LOVED my photography session with George!!! I recently had a maternity photo shoot with George in Spanaway, WA. He had great ideas for different poses and listened to my ideas as well. He took many different shots and all in all it only took about an hour! George really did go above and beyond with my photo shoot. I had never really done a photo shoot before and really had no clue what to do. George was very understanding and helpful, and happily advised me through out the shoot. George was definitely on time. He contacted me the morning of, making sure I knew where to meet him at. The quality of his photography is more than I could ask for. Not only do I love the pictures, but I have gotten many compliments from others as well!!!
Rob Pleas is professional, and fun. He does a great job at finding out what sort of photos you hope to create, and makes them reality. He is punctual, creative, and an overall terrific photographer. I highly recommend him!
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!
Angie has an extreme passion for photography and it shows through her work. She is fun and keeps the shoot exciting and a genuine smile on your face!
Firstly, I want to thank Andrew Achong for his impeccable work!! One thing important when you hire anyone is you want to be sure they know what they’re doing because you want the best. With Andrew you get just that, the best! I am beyond grateful for his tireless attitude and pure passion, when you hire Andrew you benefit from that! From the moment Andrew has his camera out he captures the most beautiful shots seemlessly! He’s professional and takes his job seriously. With his keen vision it’s like living my wedding over again when looking at his photographs. I highly recommend Achong Photography and I will definitely be using Andrew’s services again!
You will not find a more talented photographer. Stanley has a natural eye for beautiful photos. I was absolutely thrilled with the results, and have continued to use him for other important life events that I want to remember forever. I have, and will continue, to refer all my family and friends to him. Thanks Stanley S2 Photography you are truly an amazing artist!
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.
Imogen has provided photography and multimedia for my restaurant for 5 years and it's been incredible watching her business flourish. Bilingual and very professional, she delivers top quality photography and video, and also consults on strategic design. Truly multitalented and a good person to know and work with. Highly recommend.
Prasanthi did a great job on our pictures, and she had her work cut out for her with photographing 3 kids under 5. She was patient with the kids and managed to capture some beautiful pictures of them to surprise my husband with for Father's Day. These will be treasured pictures for years to come. Her price was also very reasonable. I highly recommend her as she is very talented.
Morrison Photography has given me some of the best memories that I will be able to hold onto for the rest of my life. I'm beyond thankful!!
Steve made a dvd of photo highlights for my father's celebration of life service, including a soundtrack. He took the photos and songs provided and wove them into one of the most beautiful and moving tributes I've ever seen. Steve puts his all into every project, and demonstrates utmost sensitivity and respect for the subject matter in whatever project he engages in. His services are well worth what is charged, and much more. I would (and do) recommend Crown-Vista Video & Photography to anyone...you will not be disappointed!
I had been wanting some professional grade photos taken of my two dogs for a while when I got on Thumbtack. Josh was super fast to respond and quoted me a very reasonable price. He was right on time to our appointment and the pictures turned out fantastic. Better than I had hoped for. I will definitely use him for any photography needs I may have in the future.
As a fellow artist and film maker, I can attest to Aaron's professionalism and passion for the craft. His years of experience make for an effortless process, he is extremely considerate and patient, and produces the best quality material that I've had done so far. He's intuitive enough to put you in spaces that help you get the image and production value you need for your brand. Also, his team is socially conscious, you have to respect someone with talent like his coupled with a commitment to service and exposing the voice of the voiceless. Highly recommended with a unique clientele base, Aaron and his GoatHouse team will be the new innovators and trend setters in video and photography.
Jackie's photos are unrivaled in the Craft Beer Industry, and capture the feeling, soul, and community of Craft in each shot. Would recommend her work on an ad hoc basis or in-house retainer - a definite value-add for any project of any size.
We have used Marc's photography services for the past 15 years. His ability to connect and create a relationship with his subjects is top-notch. You know he loves what he does and has fun with the people he works with. His attention to detail and making sure he captures just the right image is a talent he has mastered. His professionalism and dedication to his trade has set him apart and has made him a great photographer. I would recommend Marc for any photography project you may have. Tammy Holten
Mickey is an awesome photographer. She has deep insights and interest which translates to her output. Apart from her skills, she is very friendly and ever smiling. Awesome experience and will get the photos again from her!!!
Clickery Photography is amazing! Katie and Zack are both great and work great together :) quality is great, their creativeness in photo shoots comes so natural. I personally did a boudoir shoot and I didn’t feel awkward, Katie made it quite comfortable. I’ve also used them for family photos, senior shoots, and just for fun pics! Turn around to get your pictures back is quick as well. I would highly recommend using them.
Taylor is a serious professional. She has the most amazing vision and is so unbelievably creative. Her photos are so robust and different than anything else out there! She is also one of the most fun loving people I have ever met. Working with her was an absolute dream and I would 100% recommend her to anyone who needs photos! I promise you will not regret it!
