I had seen Bree’s 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 Bree’s photos and he was all in. We looked at other photographers and their work, and we agreed Bree’s work was definitely the right style for us. I didn’t 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. She’s 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 don’t 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 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!

Hey Christine, Going back to the beginning when we first hired you and had our engagement photo shoot I spent a lot of time reviewing photographers portfolios online and I loved how comfortable all you clients looked and the photos don’t look like any Joe Schmoe took them. I could tell you took time and really cared about the final product. When we met you we did feel extremely comfortable, like you were an old friend and we ended up with an album of photos where we look natural and they are all perfectly finished! After seeing the results of our session I had no doubts our wedding album was going to beautiful! Ryan and I had so much fun going through our wedding photos. It felt like our wedding day all over again. You did such a great job of capturing every moment and I swear you must have had a clone running around during the ceremony because you were able to get photos of Ryan, the bridal party, and myself. I felt like there was not a moment lost. I love how everyones personalities really shine through in the portraits. You did not try to control the session but we were both glad when surroundings became distracting and you stepped in to save us. So many of the photos look like they belong in a Bridal magazine! I can’t believe they are Ryan and I. We will definately be recommending you to everyone we know! Thank you again so so so much! – Jessica & Ryan

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!

Jim was very professional, and was able to replicate the work of another photographer for a corporate head shot for one of our remote employees. He was very good at communicating the process with me so I was informed every step of the way. The photos matched the others on our site well, and processing payment was easy.

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.

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!

Our experience having Jaclynn photograph our wedding was beyond EXCELLENT! From the initial online message exchanges on Thumbtack to all the way till the final photo galleries came out, Jaclynn has been extremely friendly, hardworking and passionate with what she does! She went above and beyond for all our photography needs, and gave us her full attention, time and care throughout. 1. Her price point by far was the most cost effective from all the quotes we received through thumbtack. On top of that, she included extra's like photo album, canvas prints, and a complimentary additional day for an outdoor photo session! 2. She reserved her services for us for the complete wedding day! She accompanied us to our salon to photograph candid getting-ready shots, and accompanied us all day getting photographs at all the different locations (Salon, Downtown Bellevue, Elliot Bay Marina Seattle) 3. She also had another awesome photographer accompany her to capture our wedding, that she was training. We had two photographers taking pictures from multiple angles throughout! 4. She met us a few days before the wedding for finalizing all the details. She was very friendly, and genuinely cares for her clients, and gave us her full time and attention! 5. She was very friendly with all the guests at the wedding, and immediately got along with everyone she photographed! It was great to have her around! 6. Her turnaround time for the final photos was very good. The online delivery method was perfect, with all the photos conveniently accessible and downloadable through her online portal. 7. She is very passionate about what she does and FULLY strives to make her clients happy! 8. Ours was a traditional Pakistani wedding, which you don't have many of in the US. Still Jaclynn fully understood how the wedding needed to be captured and did a truly impressive job! Me, my wife and all our guests fully recommend Jaclynn for all your photography needs!

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.

Rachel did an AMAZING job! I don't really care to have my photo taken. I went to Rachel to get professional photos and she helped me feel comfortable and confident, which clearly came through in my photos. All of my photos came out beautifully and I had many photos to choose from. Rachel recommended that I get my makeup done professionally, and I'm VERY glad I did. I scheduled a "Custom Makeover" at Sephora for professional photo makeup which was free with a $50 purchase. I brought different clothing options and Rachel helped me choose outfits that photographed wonderfully. She truly has much creative vision and talent. I highly recommend Rachel for your photography needs. She is kind, genuine and wonderful to work with. I'm looking forward to working with her again in the future!

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

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.

This past September my husband and I vacationed with our daughter, son-in-law and three young granddaughters at a beach cottage in Maine. We really wanted to commemorate our first 'family vacation' and chose Darlene Terry of 'Whimsical Years Photography' to photograph our family. Darlene with her unique low-key approach was able to capture the essence of what is our family. The photographs are something we will treasure always. I find great joy in knowing that sometime many years from now our granddaughter's will be looking at those photographs with their children and recalling that wonderful summer in Maine.
