We hired Steven (Bourelle Photography) for a family photo session and we couldn't be any more pleased. The shoot location was Rollins Savanna, in volatile and continually changing outdoor conditions (wind, challenging lighting, clouds, pedestrian obstructions) Steven took advantage of every possible moment and situation. The way Steven worked with us, his creativity, patience and super-fun personality was so refreshing and it shines-through in his craft (photos). The superior-quality of the final product Steven produced was simply outstanding. The fact that he got two, not so excited, teenage boys to participate and actually smile is a testament to how well he managed the entire shoot. With all that goes into planning and actually taking family photos, it should have been a real chore. To the contrary, it was a first-class experience. We highly recommend Steve and Bourelle Photography.

Steven did a great job getting studio quality pictures of my 2 and 4 year old! We had just tried to go to a commercial studio, and our whole family had a melt down! Steven was calm, patient, and worked beyond his one hour commitment to get pictures of everyone! Being able to have him in our home made all the difference! Will definitely call again!

This guy kicks ass. He was able to turn my living room into a photo studio and break it back down inside of 20 minutes. Within a few hours, I had proofs to review and less than 24 hours later, I had the final product. Excellent service--excellent price.

This review is a long time coming and I feel bad that it took so long but here goes: I cannot even think of enough good words to say about Stories Framed Photography. My daughter was not looking forward to her senior portrait at all. She genuinely does not like her picture taken ever. Abbie assured me that she would listen to Mia and offered to meet us before scheduling the shoot to be sure Mia would be comfortable with her. Needless to say Mia did feel very comfortable with Abbie after just a short conversation at Starbucks. She also was very comfortable during her shoot. And the photos, they were just amazing. I cannot believe how well Abbie captured my daughters personality and how comfortable and happy she looked. The photos were professional quality and I had a hard time not buying more than we needed. Abbie also made a custom piece to match one we had done of my older daughter for her senior portraits and at a very reasonable price. I have no problem telling anyone who needs a portrait of any kind done to call Abbie. Stories Framed is a perfect name for her business. Thanks so much for everything Abbie!!!!

I was so overwhelmed trying to find a photographer like 2 months before my wedding. I stumbled upon Thumbtack and I am so glad I did because Nico did such an amazing job and was so easy to work with. He did beautiful quality work for us and I love that he gives you the freedom to share your photos and get them printed wherever you want. He doesn't hold your photos hostage, like many other photographers. We ended up having the photos printed through his service and they had very high print quality. Also, he jumped in a snowbank without hesitation to get a perfect shot. Can't really get much better than that!

Nico is an amazing photographer and artist. We could not have been happier with him and his work. He is more than reasonable for his pricing for all that he has to offer. On our wedding day he didn't make us feel that we were rushed and was with us well into the late night hours. It was a crazy day and he worked with everything that we had. We are truly happy with his work and would hope to use him in our future for other photography.

It was such a pleasure working with Mindy. From the very first correspondence, I could tell that she was going to be a reliable photographer. She was very professional, and she was always very prompt to answer my questions and get things scheduled. I appreciated that she was interested in particular photo shots I might want taken, and she was able to produce photos that were just what I was expecting. And when I had a last minute scheduling conflict, she was willing to go above and beyond expectations to accommodate my family in getting our photos done. She was very patient when working with my energetic 2 year old, and I appreciated how efficiently she was able to work as well. Her turn-around time with editing the final photos was extremely fast, especially given how busy she is with the holiday season. I would definitely work with her again and recommend her services to anyone.

Mindy took photos of me with my flute, alto flute and piccolo for my Masters Flute Recital. She took event flyer photos in her studio a month prior to my recital and she was there for my recital, taking hundreds of fantastic photos that look absolutely stunning! I can't thank her enough for the beautiful work she did on my event photos and at my recital. It was great having someone take photos during and after my recital, and I would recommend Mindy to anyone who is looking for someone to take event photos. She has very good equipment, her prices are extremely reasonable and she is very flexible with her schedule.

I went to Anthony's studio to obtain some pictures of myself to post on match.com. He promptly greeted me at the door and immediately made me feel at home. Anthony was very helpful in showing me how to present my best assets while minimizing the bad. I did not feel hurried in any way and appreciated that he worked diligently to help me achieve my goal. I may use Anthony again to have him take pictures of my cat, Charlie. Marcia De Cramer

I had 5 photographers to choose from and selected Sage Arts because of his previous work (found on his website). Anthony is professional and listened to my needs. The photo's turned out well and he charged me what he said he would. This was my first time hiring a professional photographer and next time I will ask more questions.

Alyson was great at helping me figure out thr best outdoor location for our family photos and was perfectly willing to travel near where i live. Once we met her at location, she arrived early and was very nice and approachable. She made our family feel very comfortable during the photo session and brought some photo examples and suggestions, which turned out to be exactly something i would have chosen. She will be sending me the photos in a few days, but she gave me a sneak peak from her camera and they turned out better than what i wpuld have imagined. I would certainly use Alyson Marie photography for my future photograph needs.

Alyson was a pleasure to work with. Very professional and responsive and friendly. She picked a great location for our outdoor photo shoot, it was nearby and beautiful! Our 1 year old wasn't feeling very "smiley" that morning, but the photos came out beautifully anyway! The only reason I did not give 5 stars was because Alyson did not provide very much direction during the shoot... it was nice that we could do whatever we felt comfortable with, but with a little more guidance we could have gotten a bigger variety of shots. I will still use her services again!

I went on Thumbtack to find a photographer for a large event (500+ people) and Thomas was quick to reply with a quote within my budget. He was friendly but professional and willing to accommodate any requests. He was discreet in taking pictures of the event and the location and the proofs were delivered within the week after the event. He has a great eye and the pics were fabulous! Many to choose from and awesome candid shots throughout the 5 hour event. I would highly recommend and will gladly use his services again in the future.

We hired Thomas to shoot some family photos of a special Christmas dinner we were holding at The Pfister Hotel. I don't think I have ever seem a photographer work so hard at getting great pictures. He was down on the ground working with small kids, running around to capture candid pics, whatever it took... The final shots will fill a family album which all will cherish for years to come. Hopefully, we have an occasion to use him again! Thanks, Thomas, for your great work!

We were very pleased with the photo's Tom took & his friendly personality. He was punctual and checked out the banquet hall for the best background area for the photo's. He even got my cousin to smile for a picture when she didn't want a picture taken...what a smooth talker. He took several very nice family shots of both sides of the family for keepsake photo's. We could not ask for a better professional photographer, and would highly recoommend him.

Dee Dee Werner was a terrific professional photographer to work with. Our event was a professional networking event served 45+ guests. We decided to add value to our event and contracted with Dee Dee for Head Shot’s. We promoted this through social media and through our networking partners as a Fee Based photo shoot. Dee Dee made it seamless… she was able to collect payment at the event, conduct individual photo shoots and share images with attendees directly within 10 days. Although this doesn’t seem like a challenge… she did it 20 minutes prior to our event and 20 minutes after our event! We received only GREAT REVIEWS from our attendees! It was a terrific complement to our professional Lunch and Learn event! I would personally recommend Dee Dee for a professional or personal event!

Jayne has taken family pictures of my kids and me on four different occasions. She is always very professional and meticulous in her photographs and in her editing. Nicki was also there for one of the shoots. Both ladies and very personable and easy to work with. They have often been flexible with their schedules also.

LOVE KatieRie Photography! I had such a wonderful experience from beginning to end. We missed newborn pictures with our daughter and Katie helped us build a package that fit our needs (including some family shots as well as milestone pictures for our little one). She has such a great eye and captured some wonderful images that we loved. I was so impressed with her communication and timing in receiving the images. Katie was always quick to respond to any questions I had and sent images in the time frame specified (three weeks!) if not earlier! In working with other photographers I have been frustrated with how long it took to receive the images so this was something I was extremely happy with. Lastly, she had the best pricing around! In looking into photography packages for our daughter I was shocked at how much photographers were charging and some didn't even include printing rights. Katie includes all images with printing rights and her pricing was unbeatable! Overall I had a great experience with Katie and have already passed on her name to several of my friends! I just booked another session with her for our family Christmas picture! She's the best!

We have used Katey for over three years now. She has done a remarkable job capturing moments from days after my daughter was born, to our children interacting with one another, to full family portraits. We have had other photographers attempt to take pictures, and nothing matches up to the style of photography and final product that she is able to create. Our family room hallway and living room are all adorned with the pictures that she has captured for us to document our lives.

Dan Eichmeier is an outstanding photographer. We have used him for two of our daughter's senior pictures. He takes all the stress and hassle out of the process by directly handling the high school yearbook staff. Dan has also taken our family's Christmas and family portraits. The customer gets all the pictures via email and on a CD for a fraction of the cost of local studios. I would highly recommend him if you're looking for a reliable and professional photographer.

I had been looking for a LONG time for someplace to do some family portraits, but was bored with the "portrait factories" you find in malls and department stores. Those places have people that can operate a camera, of course. HOWEVER, Breezie is a PHOTOGRAPHER, not just a button-pushing employee. This is her business, her livelihood and most importantly, her passion. It is that passion that she brings to her work and made our family portraits absolutely amazing. She asks you what YOU want to do: not like the places I mentioned above where they tell you what you will do for them. I am 100% satisfied with her work and will be returning to her in the future. If you're in the market for GREAT portraits, Breezie is who you need to contact!

From stunningly unique photos to complex marketing projects that gets your unique message across - Larry's your "man"! Last year, I hired Larry to do a personal photo shoot for my website, after I saw the level of creativity exhibited in his online portfolio. I was so pleased with the results that I retained him as the "creative director" for my business. His creative skills go far beyond photography into graphic design, branding, marketing collateral, websites and more. What I appreciate most about working with Larry is that: - he's not an order taker - he's a truly collaborative partner who willingly shares his expertise to improve your product and results - he invested the time with me upfront to learn about my business and what makes it unique - by doing so, he can create exceptional, on-point , on-time material with minimal time investment from me - when I provide the "high-level" detail for a project, he nails exactly what I'm looking for - AND - typically far surpasses what I was expecting in overall look and level of professionalism! Bottom line - Larry's very flexible, highly creative, talented and extremely likable guy who truly cares about making his clients happy.

I recently brought Larry a 70 year old black and white portrait of my family. It is the only portrait I have of my grandparents and their 5 children, including my Dad. I asked Larry to colorize the portrait. When he sent it to me, I was amazed. The colors seemed perfect and the portrait looked as if it had just been taken. I shared it with my extended family and they all were impressed. I can give a firm recommendation for anyone considering using Zamba services.

About

I strive to capture the "essence" of the subjects I'm shooting. I don't have a list of poses that I force my client to fit into, I mold the image around the client creating a unique image every time. I also don't embarrass easily: the reason this is important is because I'm not afraid of what you'll think of me if I tell you to move spots or ditch an idea all together because of lighting or poor composition. My desire is the end result, gorgeous images that you love! I do WHATEVER it takes to make that happen!
