Photographer Abbie Miller is delightful. I normally don't like having my picture taken, but she put me right at ease and explained to me, step by step what we were doing and why. I highly recommend her.

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!

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.

While I take a lot of photos myself they are just snapshots. Max really can catch all the angles and lighting that make pictures come to life and become keepsakes. He is a hard working guy and I was very pleased with all his work. If you are looking for a full service photographer who puts his customer's needs first, Max Cozzi is who I would recommend.

Melissa did an amazing job at our wedding! She had great ideas for the pictures, and was so professional and friendly. From our first conversation to the end of the wedding, it was absolute pleasure to work with her. I have been in many of my friends' and family's weddings, she far surpassed any of the previous photographers l have worked with. We are so glad we found her!

Wouldn't think of using someone else. She is flexible, professional, very very patient and great with kids. She is really artistic and great at finding natural moments that make stunning pictures. Her portraits never look forced or set up, which is hard with kids, but she manages to impress me every time.

I found Allison to be one of the most unique and fun photographers that i've ever worked with. There was never a dull moment with her! She really knows how to capture natural beauty in each person and has a wide variety of skills to bring to the table. Can't say enough about this lady, she makes photography sessions so much better with her energy! Allison truly values all her customers needs and will do whatever it takes to make them happy! Highly recommend her!!

It has been nothing short of an absolute pleasure working with David and Sarah (his wife and partner-in-photography) from the first time I spoke with him on the phone. We hired Realife Photography for an engagement photo session in Sept. 2014 and for our wedding on Sept. 5, 2015 at the Audubon Center. David and Sarah have such an amazing vibe- they work so well together, and they are super friendly, funny, creative, and low-key. I don't love having photos taken of myself and was nervous for the engagement photo shoot, but David totally allayed all my nerves by throwing some goofy ideas in with the serious ones, which was perfect for me. It really put me at ease, and the photos turned out beautiful and natural. At the wedding, David and Sarah were an absolute dream to work with. They were accommodating and easy-going, managed to both remember all the important shots I wanted while also being totally invisible during the ceremony and reception. Everyone in the wedding party loved working with them. And the photos are AMAZING! Of the 1300+ photos David sent us, there literally is not a single one that I'm unhappy with. My biggest challenge now is figuring out which ones I want to frame because I want to frame all of them, and all of them reflect who we are. So often when looking through wedding photography, it seems that the photographers are more interested in showing off their own artistic skill and so the photos end up being more about them than about the people or the feeling of the day. David takes the exact opposite approach. He really focuses on us, and uses his skill to elevate the specialness of the day rather than making it the focal point. My favorite thing about David and his company is that they captured the spirit of the day in the most magical and natural way possible. While he did capture some of the important and beautiful details of the places and things, the focus of the photos were 100% on me and my husband, our families, and our friends. You can really feel the joyous energy through the photos, and even when you're looking at a photo and thinking, "woah what a cool angle!" or "dang that's such a unique way to have used the landscape" or "woah look that lighting!", the very first thing you see and the feeling that stays with you is that the photo says something about *us,* and that is so invaluable and, I think, rare in wedding photography. I couldn't recommend Realife highly enough. They were such a joy to have with us on our wedding day, David has been and continues to be so responsive and accommodating, and the photos are such a treasure. I promise you will not go wrong with Realife Photography!!

Bark River Photography partners John and Jess are probably two of the most professional, skilled and FUN photographers I have worked with in years. Their skill sets complement one another to a T and together, they provide an outstanding experience for their clients and subjects that makes them stand out in a sea of other photographers. Their pricing was incredible for the value they provide in quality, options, talent, and turnaround. Their business and professional photography, modeling, casual and social media profile work is excellent. I had a chance to view their senior picture photography work and art photography too and was so impressed. I would definitely return to Bark River for additional needs. I would HIGHLY recommend getting in touch with them and getting in their schedule. Thanks for bringing out the best in me during the shoot and making the experience so much fun!

Prairie was so great to have at our wedding reception! She was very sweet and hardly noticeable (I know that sounds weird but I’ve had photographers in the past that want to drive the event and take over and cause too much stress). We have her flexibility on timing but she did not abuse it at all. She stuck around until she got all of the best shots and did such a great job. We didn’t get a chance to meet before our event but she did exactly what I was looking for. Just a bunch of fun shots of people having fun and dancing the night away. Thanks Prairie!!

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.

Bonnie is a talented photographer and a wonderful person! We have had the privilege of having Bonnie capture some very important moments for us- from our wedding to maternity pictures to family portraits- and we can't say enough about how much we love the images Bonnie has created with us! Bonnie is very flexible and versatile; we have done studio sessions, a shoot in a park, wedding photos (ceremony, portraits, and reception), and even family photos at our home. Bonnie is great with our daughter, too! She has great vision, a wonderful personality, and her pricing is competitive and affordable. I can't say enough about how much we LOVE working with Bonnie!
