About

Steven is a great photographer, super fun, easy to work with and knowledgable. The photo shoot was fast and he even had all of the photos edited and ready to be downloaded by the next day. He is someone that I would recommend to anyone looking for professional photography.

About

Our studio is primarily geared towards head shots for performers, but since we approach our images from a commercial photography perspective, anyone who needs a professional image to represent themselves can be accommodated. Everybody is different. Some people love having their pictures taken and others would rather do a trip to the dentist. There is one thing that everybody has in common, and that is wanting to look good in their pictures. Every person who walks into the studio has some degree of self-consciousness. It is my job to figure out what that is so we can work through it together and make sure that you look your best. If you are at all nervous about having your picture taken, don't be. You aren't the first person to feel this way, and I know exactly how to counteract that. You will never look your best or even remotely like yourself if you aren't being yourself. I have plenty of tricks up my sleeve to make sure that there won't ever be a dull moment.

I needed a professional head shot for my business and LinkedIn profile, and Stories Framed did a great job. Abbie made me look great and it only took about 10 minutes of my time. She formats the photos for web use which is so helpful. Would highly recommend her for any photography need.

About

As a child and family photographer, I specialize in on-location photography services, using natural light as much as possible. My goal is to capture the essence of your loved ones and the bond your family shares. Family, Wedding, Senior, event... I believe that photographs are a great way to freeze time and capture the moments of life you want preserved.

About

I am a photojournalist-style photographer specializing in portrait and event photography. My work typically involves shooting events like parties and weddings, along with portraits of little ones and their families. My style has been shaped by my love of street photography and photojournalism, so you'll notice that my work mostly captures candid moments rather than those involving elaborate props and staging.

Where to begin... This woman is absolutely incredible. I don't know if I could have pictured a person more suited for my fiance and myself. From start to finish she absolutely exceeded every expectation I had of what a photographer was and did on our big day. I mean she climbs trees, lays in the mud, will literally do anything to get you the shot. She's one of the funniest people I know, and my fiance and I were so blessed to have her with us for our big day. 10/5 will hire for something else.

My family will never have to look around for a photographer again, Kelly is incredible! Professional but made us so comfortable. Our son wasn't in the mood to have pictures taken and I was getting upset and felt like we were wasting her time and was so upset thinking we wouldn't get any good pictures, she was so laid back and reassuring... And as it turns out , I haven't seen a single picture that I don't LOVE.

Kelsey photographed my fiance and I for our engagement photos and we could not be more pleased with the outcome. I had a lot of ideas and a specific vision of what I wanted from the pictures and Kelsey really listened to what I wanted. She came prepared with lots of ideas for the photo shoot and was also open to suggestions I had for specific photo ideas. We had tons of fun and the pictures came out better than even I hoped for. It was such a pleasure working with Kelsey and I will definitely be going back to her for any of my professional photography needs in the future.

Amazing! Stacey knows how to work every setting on her camera to get you the best picture. We had studio photos done with 9 family members, and she captured everyone beautifully. There were two infants in our group and she was great working with them to get the best capture their personalities. Highly recommended Times 3 Photography for all photography needs.

We were extremely pleased with West Michigan Photography and would highly recommend them. Aaron and his wife did our son's senior pictures. They were so easy to work with and the pictures look amazing! I am having a hard time deciding which pictures I want:) Prices were very reasonable. We will definitely be back for our daughter's senior pictures in a few years!

About

I'm a self-taught photographer whose dabbled in the art for several years, although the business side of it didn't take off until early 2013 when Kholdstare Design was founded. In early 2015 I separated my design work from my photography work and thus, Oaken Sage was born. Over these past few years I've worked with various local bands and models and am also known for taking photos of couples, children, animals, cemeteries, onstage performers and nature landscapes. Naturally, I'm looking to continue forward with these while adding more to my repertoire. I also have experience with graphic design and photo editing. Photo touch-up and adjustment services are also available.

Thom has worked with our family for years. He has worked with us before our two sons were born and from that moment on he has documented the changes within our family. Baptisms, birthdays and graduations, Thom has covered these events and our home is a great testament to his work and skill. Personable, fun and endless energy, he is a photographer that has a passion in his work that you rarely see. From getting the shot to framing and picking the best images possible to display in our home. Thom will continue to do work for us and capturing those special moments. Life isn't over yet!

About

As a professional wedding photographer in Chicago, coming from South Florida, the things that stand out the most are the wonderful four seasons and architecture. Chicago has some of the most wonderful city backdrops for every season, and if nature is what you're looking for, there are plenty of parks that make you believe you're in a meadow. The exiting thing about four seasons is the variety of photos one can get. This is also applicable to all of Midwest and Chicagoland area, which I photograph if my couples have their wedding outside Chicago. Please find bellow the wedding photography flow easy as 1-2-3! 1. Wedding Preparation From the moment a contract is signed, I start the preparations for the wedding, as we all know, preparation is key in every project. A few months before the wedding, I get in touch with the bride and groom to set up the engagement session. We need to get that finished in order to have photos for save the date, invitations or anything else needed. A couple of weeks before the wedding I double check the information for times and locations for ceremony, reception and wedding party photos. I time the driving distances between home and locations for the wedding and make sure I allow myself more than needed time between each venue. 2. Wedding Day My style of Photography is mixed between photojournalistic and traditional. I know most couples these day like the "reportage" Photography, however family and friends are more used to the traditional, posed type. Because of this I do both and everyone is content. I try to deliver more than asked for, therefore I arrive at the bride's house earlier to make sure I have enough time to photograph all the important details such as flowers, invitations, rings and wedding dress. Once at the ceremony location, I get the groom and his groomsmen. Ceremony will be covered from every possible angle, covering bride being walked down the aisle and groom waiting for her, along with the rituals of the ceremony. Once that's finished, I get the leaving shots as well as posed shots in front of ceremony location with the family. From there we go to the wedding party locations, that have been previously chosen by the couple and all permits have been taken care of. When entering the reception area, I focus on the guests arriving and getting shots of everyone enjoying the cocktail hour, while the bride and groom get ready for their introduction. Reception including speeches, toasts, first dance and cutting of the cake. Throughout the reception, I always make sure that there is at least one photo of every couple there, and photos of the bride and groom interacting with their guests and dancing. 3. Post Production I personally believe that every photo I deliver to my client has to be the absolute best. I use only digital cameras and equipment, all Canon, always having back-ups in case of emergency, therefore the post-production has to be done accordingly. Once I get all images in my computer, I go through all of them and edit them for best printing quality, working on contract, luminosity and color. The files that the couple gets, just a few weeks after the wedding, are always digital and in high resolution, on a DVD along with the copyrights. Besides the digital photos, they always get a DVD slideshow of the wedding. About 150 photos will be put on line in the client Gallery so that friends and family can see them and download them for free. Depending on the package chosen the couple and I work on the wedding album together to ensure total satisfaction. Prices vary from package to package, but all include a full day shooting (10 hours), covering the bride getting ready, ceremony, wedding party photos and reception. If you don't need so many hours, than our hourly rates are $140.00, and you can customize the wedding day as needed. Either way, your photos will come out looking great and on a quick turnaround. ___________________________________________________ Gia Photos is one of the leading Chicago photography companies. The wedding day is one of the most important days in anyone's life, and for that valuable moment, Gia Photos is there to ensure that every expression and moment is captured for a lifetime of pleasure. Styles range from conventional portraits and artistic to photojournalistic style, and you can select which one you'd like. Whether it's a small, intimate wedding or otherwise, I cover it all with utmost concentration and focus, while capturing precious moments that make each wedding special and unique. Don't forget, our company offers the following services: * Weddings "Happy and thrice happy are those who take pleasure in an uninterrupted union, and whose love, unbroken by any sour objections, shall not melt until the last day of their existence." - Horace On your wedding day, it's important you enjoy the moment and not worry about each problem that arises. Our photographer will be there to ensure that you feel as relaxed and comfortable as possible. We'll capture every aspect of your wedding, from the smallest detail of the wedding gown to expressions of guests and table settings, while making each image as beautiful as possible. At the same time, we capture the expressions and emotions of the groom and bride, as they make the most significant day of their life so irreplaceable, unique and memorable. * Portraits "The goal is not to alter your subjects, but for them to change the photographer." - Unknown Capturing someone's portrait properly means capturing his/her soul, the essence of what makes that person different and incredible than everybody else. I'll try and put across each person's distinctiveness, by reaching to that particular person more than any photographer, and capture each smile and expression. * Engagements "Love one another and you'll be happy. It's as simple and as difficult as that." - M. Leunig Chicago Wedding Photographer, Inc. will be very happy to do your engagement photos for the wedding. We'll photograph you at your chosen location, or recommend a suitable place, whether it's outdoor or studio. * Trash the dress - a new wedding photography trend Trash the dress refers to photographs that contrasts the wedding gown with a surrounding in which it is totally out of place, such as the parks, beach, alleys, train stations, or anything informal. It may also be made as an additional photo shoot after the wedding, almost as a statement that the wedding is through and the dress will never be worn again. In most situations, the dress gets totally destroyed. However, it's worth doing such, not only for the fun, but also for the different and great portraits that come at the end. We also cover: * Bar/Bat Mitzvahs * Christenings * Events Free estimates are available upon request.

Stacey from Emerald Enchantments Photography was a wonderful photographer. She made my fiance and I feel very comfortable and gave us a lot of direction (which is needed with us). She made herself very available to talk about the kind of pictures we wanted and even would advise us about what exactly to wear! She was really sweet. We found her pictures to be of excellent quality and her price was affordable. My biggest compliment was that she was able to deliver our photo gallery in a very timely manner.

We hired Jamie to take outdoor family Christmas photos at our home during the month of December. He was very prompt and professional. He offered many suggestions to utilize our winter wonderland background. We were thrilled with the quality of the photos and had an extremely hard time picking just one for our holiday card!! We will definitely use Jamie again and would proudly recommend him for any photography needs.

I can't speak to the quality of the photos, YET, but the experience of working with Aliza was fantastic! She is extremely personable and put us both at ease, while at the same time extremely professional. She made the photo shoot a very enjoyable experience, and that in and of itself created a good memory for my fiancee and I. We can't wait to see how the pictures turned out!
