I had seen Brees 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 Brees photos and he was all in. We looked at other photographers and their work, and we agreed Brees work was definitely the right style for us. I didnt 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. Shes 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 dont 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!
Our medical office hired Shawn to take some professional portrait photos for our website! He also replied quickly once I put in a request through thumbtack. He was accommodating and worked very hard to get many shots! He had great ideas about lighting, style, posing, and decor. He had a great artistic eye! He was also very social and fun to work with. I would completely recommend him! And I would most definitely hire him again!
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
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!
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.
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.
JENNIFER IS SO AMAZING. Seriously, she understands what's happening at every angle. She plans and executes. She is perfect!!!! Never loved a photographer so much!
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!
Wanted to let everyone know that our family of four had a beyond-amazing time getting our family portrait done by Rachel Alves. Our kids are 4 and 2 years old, so no small task indeed! The prices were good, the shoot so much fun, and most of all the products were fabulous - and surpassed our greatest expectations! Highly recommend this Queen Anne business person to all! Thanks.
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.
ABSOLUTELY LOVED MY PHOTOS!!!! Both my sister and I have had our senior photos with Ben and we both loved them (she is one year older than me)! Super friendly and flexible. Both my sister and I didn't want super posed photos, we wanted them natural and relaxed looking since the whole super intense lighting, staged background, and typical photo poses wasn't our thing. Since my sister had Ben take her photos her senior year I was able to see how the photos came out, I decided to stick with him for my senior photos and was very happy to do so! Ben was able to help us come up with different ideas that looked amazing yet super laid back. Highly recommend him! Compared to other photographers he was super affordable! Taking photos can be pretty awkward in general (at least for me it is) but I felt completely comfortable and relaxed with him (sort of like hanging out with a friend who just so happens to be taking photos). If anyone is looking for a senior photo photographer Ben is definitely a good choice!
What a terrific time! The photos Andrew took were full of life and fun, not just dull portraits. What he does with his camera and editing is really magical!
Anna Marie is Awesome to work with, she is an excellent photographer with years of experience. she is energetic and loves what she does and is easy to work with!. Anna's pictures are detailed and she listens to what you want! so if you are looking for an excellent upbeat photographer who is willing to go pretty much anywhere, for super cool shots Anna should be your photographer of choice!
I had Marcus, of Premier Art, Do a photo shoot for a family reunion we had. The service was exceptional. Punctual, professional, and a joy to work with. The pictures turned out great! We couldn't be more pleased with the memories that we will have forever. thank you Premier Art for your excellent work. Joe.
He is a photographer with a great attitude and passion for the art of photography, especially when you see his attention to detail while photographing his subjects.
My husband and I have been looking for a good photographer that also has affordable prices, so we were really happy to stumble spoon heavenly creations photography! 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!
Crystal is an amazing photographer very easy to get along with and her ideas are amazing. she made me feel super comfortable to be myself when she was shooting me. like I said before, outstanding photographer over all I highly recommend her! (:
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.
Daniel was the first photographer to respond on Thumbtack and although I had others reach out to me, he was the most responsive and helpful. He provided some amazing pictures for me and my fiance to share for a lifetime. I strongly recommend Daniel for any special event. He said he is a traveling photographer, which is also a plus.
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
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! :)
