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!

Shawn came to our location was on time and extremely patient. I have worked with photographers before and there is usually a sense of being rushed which makes me look nervous in photos (OK I tend to look that way anyway) Shawn was relaxed and took the time to build rapport, making me less nervous for these "for linkedin" pics, and it shows. Excited to upload my new headshots, and delighted to have so many from which to choose. I highly recommend Shawn.

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.

Jason started off with clear instructions and helpful tips as to how my family and I should pose or take the graduation photos. He was really patient with my family who doesn't speak much English and I really appreciate that. He is a very talented photographer and has always made sure the lighting is great before taking the photos. He is a flexible, engaging and professional photographer. I really enjoyed the photo session and would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to take graduation photos!

I cannot say enough about Vertizon Photography. Through a couple Q&A exchanges, Jim was able to asses my needs and went the extra mile scouting for the best shoot location, even sending photos of various locations prior to the shoot allowing me to choose which I felt was best. We settled on a date and the outdoor location. It was windy and overcast and I was skeptical what we would end up with. That is why Jim is a pro~he understands lighting, shadows, depth and composition and had the goods and talent to pull off some amazing photos. Worth mentioning that Vertizon was the highest quote I received from Thumbtack. We all like value but I would only recommend Jim for those who want professional photography vs. someone who has taken a class, purchased an expensive camera, keeps the camera settings on AUTO and advertises their services on Thumbtack. Not to say he was expensive. In fact, for the work he did and the results received, I ended up with the best value after all.

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.

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.

Thank you for making my graduation party a success! Being an adult grad student I wasn't sure about having the photobooth; I'm sure glad I did. My guests loved the photobooth. Ms. Elizabeth and her assistant were professional and friendly as they interacted with my guest and guided them through the booth experience. Ms. Elizabeth also went above and beyond by creating the backdrop to match the party theme. My guest were able to take home pictures to remember the night and I was able to have all of the pictures for my memory book. I would definitely recommend and book again!

Let me begin by saying Kyle is very patient, and has an amazing attitude towards life. The kind of guy you would want as a friend for life! I was planning my wedding under 3 months and had very little information when I first booked photographers. Kyle was incredibly patient with my lack of clarity on how many hours I needed, and where I needed him, etc. He checked in with me regularly only to see how I was doing, empathizing with how stressful weddings are and assuring me that things will go well. In hindsight, his assuring messages were a huge help in feeling less stressed. I can't thank him enough! He also offered to help me find other photographers that would meet my budget in case he didn't meet my budget, which I personally thought was him going above and beyond. My now husband also does photography (although not wedding photography) and he thought Kyle was really incredibly. On the day of the wedding, Kyle was awesome. His crew was also really fun. It felt like we had known everyone for a long time and they were just at our wedding taking photos like everyone else. Everyone had a great time with Kyle. Both my mother and my husband's mother really liked him. My friends who were setting up the wedding also enjoyed his company and were getting along with him like they had known him for years! I think having a photographer that can leave you feeling at ease, and like yourself is highly crucial especially at a stressful event like a wedding. I appreciate Kyle letting me bust out my funny faces when smiling was too much. We've had a sneak peak of our photos and we are in love and yearning for more! They look magical. :)

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!

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.

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!

Alex was my wedding photographer we were lucky to hear about through a friend of a friend, and we knew as soon as we met him we knew that he was going to be perfect. His relaxed and professional demeanor was exactly what I needed on the big day when I felt perpetually late and unable to make decisions! He was great at delivering direction in a way that was efficient for a crowd and we are so pleased with the shots he thought to capture of our best day ever. His prices were excellent and the resulting body of work is one of our greatest treasures. I'll definitely be hiring Alex again--next for baby photography!

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.

I'm glad that I chose Camille as our photographer. My boyfriend and I had a pleasure working with her. Her work is amazing and our photos came out beautiful. Looking through our photos brought me indescribable feelings of happiness, love, and every emotion in between! Camille was able to capture all the beautiful moments we can look back on for the rest of our lives. She's the type of photographer who will give you 100% of her timeless effort and will exceed your expectations! I would highly recommend her! She deserve to be recognized with her amazing skills.

My first...and far from last...encounter with Whimsical Years Photography was from photos taken at the Damariscotta Pirate Rendezvous. The photos were fabulous! I reviewed her web page, had a wonderful conversation with her about her work and chose to have my sons Senior Portraits taken by Whimsical Years Photography as Darlene is able to capture the spirit of an individual. She finds out what is important to the person and lets her talent and lens to the rest! I always look forward to seeing what magic she has created!
