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!

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

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!

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!

I am writing this testimonial for a true artist and a professional photographer. I’ve 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.

I have worked with Phil numerous times as Creative Director in the fashion genre for TONI&GUY. He brings a unique point of view and quality to the imagery he creates that is apparent in his portfolio no matter what he is shooting. In fact utilizing Phil as my photographer has given me an edge in competition within my field ranking among the top 3 in the North American continent for TONI&GUY Photographic Awards for 2 consecutive years. I appreciate his attention to detail and his organizational and communicative skills.

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!

Andrew Achong is AMAZING! He delivers high level professionalism with a unique creativity I have yet to see others exude. In fact, when we were taking bridal portraits at the White House hotel in Biloxi, several staff members commented on the uniqueness of the shoot. They said that they see photographers in there constantly but all of them take the same shots. Not Andrew. He was laying on the ground, climbing on furniture and ledges, making you laugh (or in my case, helping me not be awkward) all to get the PERFECT shot. He definitely knows how to capture the moment. He loves black and white photos but, of course, is amazing with color as well. He shares a passion for photography that so many photographers have lost. You can tell he has fun doing it and that shows in his work. He is super flexible, efficient and accommodating. So much so that he was able to get my bridal portraits shot, edited, printed and displayed in less than a week before the wedding. Delivering the impossible! He is an exceptional guy and an even more remarkable photographer. He is incredible to work with and you will not be disappointed in his shots. He excels in capturing action shots with impeccable timing. He is super responsive and we always received our pictures from him so quickly! I used him for family portraits (including one baby and a toddler {takes skill}), bridal portraits, rehearsal dinner, and our wedding. I can’t say enough positive things about Andrew. I absolutely, without a doubt, recommend his services to EVERYONE. You will love reliving the moment with his photos.

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.

Vuong is a talented photographer and is professional and also friendly. We had some family pictures taken and Vuong had very good ideas to create variation in the pictures she took and we were pleased with the quality of her work. She is also super responsive, which speeds up communication. We enjoyed working with Vuong and would definitely consider hiring her again the next time we have the need. I recommend her.

Imogen shot some crazy hq headshots for me last year that I am still using to book gigs today. It was a little tough to coordinate our schedules at first, since we're both so busy 'living the creative life', but once we got into the studio together, I knew for sure it was worth the wait. I was really glad I asked her to do it, since she thought of things other photographers have missed in the past - she gave me great tips for posing and facial expressions, and I guess that's where her background as a director comes in. Overall, Imogen is a smart, hard working lady who pushes the limits with her creative vision. We went to school and worked together, and she was definitely one of the best in the program - and in the dept. Any time I needed photo or video done, she would be my top pick!

I've worked with Lauren from MyStache photography on many projects, and there is no one I would trust more with my special day. She was punctual and kind. Her creativity helped to accentuate the natural beauty of the day and all of the people in attendance. I recommend her to anyone who will listen and I often look back on the work she's done for me and smile. After I had the pleasure of having her as my wedding photographer, I also used her for the newborn photos for my baby girl and the pregnancy announcement photos for my little man. She's been a part of all of my families greatest milestones and I wouldn't have it any other way.

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 !

Best wedding photographers ever! They did a great job of capturing my husband and I's special day, and while the wedding just occurred and we've only seen the "teaser" album, I know the rest of the photos will be as great as the first 3! Not only are they great photographers, but they are great friends as well!
