    We had a blast with JP who took images of our family at the Lake in Madison. The pictures turned out fun and she had great ideas on placement and lighting. A professional all the way through the job - she scouted the location prior to us meeting so everything went smoothly.

  5. #5 Val Schaefer Photography

    (1 reviews)

    Jen G.

    Valerie definitely exceeded my expectations. I couldn't afford a "professional" baby shoot, but Valorie's picture quality is at professional standards in my book! She was a great host and put up with a 5 and 7 year old running around her house. Plus baby Karen wasn't feeling photogenic in the beginning, but even during her fussy moment, Val was great with her and still got amazing photos. Then all three kids together. All absolutely precious and worth every penny. You better take her deal now before she charges as much as the rest!

Thumbtack Spotlight

Castner Photography

(16 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I love being able to change people's opinions about getting their picture taken. For many, the only experience they have of being photographed is by a family member, in awkward yearly school photos, or maybe by a friend of the family who did their senior pictures. I'm here to change that. Photo shoots are so much fun! A professional photographer isn't just someone with a nice camera; he or she should know how to position you in a scene in a way that accentuates your positive qualities and diminishes the things that make you self-conscious. We do just that. After most shoots, our clients tell us how much fun they had. We feel that fun and energy in our pictures.

What or who inspired you to start your own business?

I purchased my first nice camera to accompany me on my various outdoor adventures. I fell in love with capturing the beauty of a landscape scene. Unfortunately, I can't always be somewhere amazing to take pictures, so I started to look into ways to shoot more when I'm home. I found that I could incorporate the same landscape techniques when working with people to create a beautiful scene on a smaller scale. The response from my images was very positive, so I decided to follow my heart and passion and pursue working in the photography world. I love everything about running this business.

    Heather was absolutely perfect from the day I met her at the Wausau Bridal Show. She is super fun and easy to work with.

She is amazing at what she does and I am thankful she captured one of the most important times/days in my life.

    anna alethia photography

    (13 reviews)

    Anna is just wonderful. We had a phenomenal experience with our engagement pictures with her! She's flexible, professional, patient, attentive, and just overall a genuinely kind person. We were nervous going into our engagement shoot because we'd never done anything like that before. She put us at ease and before we knew it, it was like we were just strolling around town enjoying ourselves and a photographer just so happened to be along capturing the day. Planning a wedding can be so hectic, but looking at our engagement pictures reminds us of WHY we're doing all this. Our love and joy just radiates in our pictures -- I can't stop looking at them and I'm struggling to choose a favorite! We are proud to say Anna will be along for the ride as our photographer on our wedding day and would highly recommend her. Can't wait to see those pictures when the time comes. Thanks so much, Anna!

  • Passionate Photographer

    K Jay Photos Photography

    (3 reviews)

    I needed some 8X10s in a hurry and a friend had told me about Kim and KJAY PHOTOS. I had seen the pictures that Kim had taken of her family and just LOVED them. I've had professional photos taken before, but I have to say that no other photographer took as much time and care, and the photos are great! Kim and I emailed back and forth and then had a lengthy phone conversation. She wanted to be sure that she had a "vision" of what I needed before the date on which she would photograph me. From the first email to the time when I actually ordered the photos, Kim acted as a partner in my venture. Her advice and professionalism helped to make the photo shoot fun and exciting. She is so enthusiastic about her work and it comes through during the entire process. I felt that she took care of my every need and made me feel comfortable. Kim even "walked" me through the process of ordering my photos online! I needed them in a week. We took the shots on a Thursday and they were in my hands by the next Tuesday!!! She even helped me to put it as my new profile picture on FB. As soon as it was posted, friends from far and wide gave it great reviews! Kim is an extraordinary find as a person, advisor and photographer. I am quite certain that you will find the entire experience to exceed any expectations you may have. I trusted her with my photos and you can trust her with yours!

  • Dynamic Photographer

    noelle-christine-images

    (2 reviews)

    My partner and I highly recommend Noelle. We did an engagement photo shoot with her and were very happy with the results. She is very easy to work with and has a very clear passion and talent for photography! She had great suggestions on where to take the photos based on lighting, color, etc. She's very professional but also fun and friendly. She took hundreds of shots in the hour we were with her, and she happily agreed to shoot not only us as a couple but our little puppy as well. She makes sure to include any of your own suggestions into the shoot and did great with both candid, fun pictures as well as very sweet, romantic ones. The photos came out wonderful - we even opted to buy extra pictures (more than our designated 30) because we couldn't narrow our final choices down enough! Her prices are super reasonable, and she is one of very few photographers that advertise as LGBT-friendly. Please consider using Noelle for engagement photos, family photos or other events. Definitely worth your time and money!

  • Unique Photography

    Photography by Kait

    (1 reviews)

    My favorite part about my job is that it is my duty to capture moments of love in people's lives. Whether it is the start of a new life, the beginning of two people's lives together, or simply the continuation of a life's story, I make sure that I capture all the little moments and every person for the unique soul that they are. Let me capture the uniqueness in you and the ones you love. I can guarantee that the experience will be a fun one and the images will be unlike those you have ever seen as they are created just for you. Moreover, because I always give my clients all of their good images on a high-resolution CD with rights to print, you will never have to pick and choose which of those perfect moments you can afford to keep. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. I look forward to capturing your special moments!

    LilyBear Photography

    (1 reviews)

    The lovely, friendly, and professional couple that make up LilyBear Photography captured our wedding day beautifully. From the moment we sat down to discuss our vision for our wedding photography, they were responsive, easy to talk to, and straightforward. We negotiated with them the kinds of pictures and the package we wanted, and they were extremely flexible and willing to work with us. We were the first wedding they shot, and I was totally blown away by the shots when we got them back. They not only took all the lovely candid, photo-journalistic style shots we'd asked for, but they did many, many creative shots that we'd never have thought of but have become some of our favorite images from the day. Working as a team, they captured lots of little moments from our family and guests that we'd never have known about as we were so busy during the wedding. I'm very grateful that we discovered this team of great photographers (and great people)! I'd highly recommend them to anyone who wants beautiful, affordable, and professional photographs of weddings, family, etc. They are fantastic! (BTW I am a real person - Jamie can give you my info as a reference if you like, just not going to leave it on the internets!)

    Julie MayRee Photography

    Spunky, vibrant and carefree; Julie MayRee photography. Some call it art, I call it heART. It's not a job, it's a way of life. I live my life and my art with my heart, with my true, pure and raw emotions. My passion for life, for beauty and for the small things in life are what drives me. There is not a single thing in my life that I do that I don't give it 150% heart. Why do it if your heart is not in it? Some may not understand this approach to my life or my job. Not everyone lives their life with their heart and their pure emotion. Some live life with logic. Others just fly by the seat of their pants, not really taking much into account at all. We are all different. That is what makes life so beautiful! Some may think that "this photography thing" is just a way for me to make money or just for fun. For some photographers, photography may be just that. For me, I wake up in the morning and see my world in moments and memories that I want to hold onto forever. Moments that should be captured and kept forever, fleeting moments that go by so quickly. My approach to my art is through my heart. If you have ever had a session with me, you know exactly what I mean. I love to laugh, play, love, and capture all of those beautiful moments and those connections. I like to get to know you, learn your likes, hear your stories and capture who you are inside. My approach is not posed or stuffy or smile for the camera. Mind you, we do get a few shots that are a bit more "formal" but nothing like you'd get from a "box photographer". If that is what you want, then I need to know ahead of time, so I can make sure we get the formal, posed, close up and tight cropped photos that you are looking for. I do strive to make you happy. Like I've said, my heart goes into this. I capture those precious moments and those heart felt connections. I excitedly return quickly to my computer, back up your photos, spend hours retouching them, smiling back at you and/or your children's smiling faces. I then blog them and create a custom gallery just for you. The time I spend on your photos is not just time, it's heart, it's love and attention to every detail. If you are looking for a photographer with heart, I'm your girl! Give me a shout and we'll get to know each other! I am not an artist, I am a heARTist! - Julie MayRee To see more of Julie's work, check out her website. She is specializing in maternity, newborns, high school, seniors and capturing you as you are.
