The difficulty you often find with photographers is that they want to do things their way, but Bree is different and she focused on what we wanted. Her final product was exceptional and hit exactly what we asked for, and much more. If you want the outcome to match your vision, then Bree is the person for you.
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 photographed my wedding in St. Louis this summer, she happily traveled all the way from Chicago. She coordinated very well with the other photographer and took control of the large bridal party to produce excellent staged photos while still managing to snap numerous priceless candids throughout the night. 10/10 would hire again (despite not planning to have to get married again.)
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
Working with Christine was awesome. She was reliable and communicative throughout the wedding planning process. Photographers need to be strict and quick when taking photos and Christine was definitely that. I never felt like the process dragged on, or we were losing time because family members and friends were not cooperating with taking pictures. Despite our family and friends taking (probably) longer than normal to get in the photos and move along, Christine helped make sure we were sticking to the schedule and getting to our reception on time. I would definitely recommend Christine to any bride looking for a good photographer who knows how to get the job done.
Elizabeth made the subjects of her photography feel so comfortable with her, and with each other, that the photos became outstanding pictures. She selected a background in my yard, which I would not have thought of. It turned out to be a beautiful surrounding. She came to my home 10 days before the photo shoot so that she could meet us and we could get to know her, that made the engagement with her at the event much easier. She got along very well with the 11 members of my family who were present at the event, and we would recommend her as a family portrait and event photographer without reservation.
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!
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.
Hired for engagement photos and couldn’t be happier. Amazing photographer, amazing eye, and super quick turnaround. We even laughed a lot during the session too, which really makes the sometimes “awkward” experience of having professional photos that much more relaxing. Would highly recommend Jennifer for portraits or, really, any photo needs.
I found Rachel Alves online searching for a photographer for my business headshot. When I looked through Rachel's gallery, I saw how she captured her subjects. You could see the joy and sparkle in their eyes. It was obvious she had a gift to capture their individuality. During my session, we were chatting and laughing within minutes and I am so happy with my photos. As a real estate broker, the client often makes a decision based on this first impression and I'm confident the image will reach my future clients.
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!
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!
This last week we had a large event, as we were setting up I received a message that our photographer was not going to be there the next morning. One of our vendors recommended we contact Anna Marie to see if she could possibly help us out and cover our event the next day. She returned our call within ten minutes and was available to help us out. She asked many questions to make sure she had all the info on what we needed for her to get pictures of. The next day she arrived early, looked over the whole event space and made sure to get pictures of each table setup and the room before the guest arrived. She was professional and many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed their interactions with her. The next morning, she had emailed me twenty pictures for our social media needs and within three days we had all the shots from the event. Her work far surpassed what we were expecting and was excellent. After seeing what she produced for us, we decided to cut her another check for the difference of what we were originally going to pay the other photographer and what she quoted us. She was worth it and I am looking forward to working with her again. Thank you for coming to our rescue and the fabulous job you did for us. A. Haaggensen
He is my favorite photographer to work with! Always have a blast every time we work together and he’s an overall great positive person to be around! :)
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
Camille is amazing! She is extremely responsive and always got back to me quicker than any photographer we've used in the past. She is also easy to work with. She was very open to any ideas I suggested and also sent me some examples to ask I thought about them. Camille made sure we got what we wanted from the session. She was great with the kids ( 3 yrs old and 1 year old) and I'm simply impressed with so many of the shots she got considering how active my boys are! We will definitely be working with her in the future and I've already recommended her to so many friends and family members! Great equality
A good photographer is also a good director. David knows how to direct his subjects to get great shots and also teaches them how to position themselves - eyes, head, body - to get the best shot/angle for future photo shoots...and perfect selfies! 😊
Christopher is an amazing photographer. He did our wedding and would recommend him to our friends and family, he was patient, professional and got traditional shots as well as candid memories. Would definitely rehire.
She makes you feel very comfortable and likes to have fun while pictures.
Had a great experience with such a talented photographer! I loved my pictures!

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!
