Kind words from real couples

“Tim is a visionary and brings an eye to his work and delivers with quality and creativity. Every single time we flip through our photos, we smile and get reminded of special moments in a new way each time. Not only that, but Tim brings a level of expertise, like navigating the uncertainties and communicates throughout the process to ensure it’s smooth and exactly the way you want it. On our wedding day, it rained for 30 minutes and it happened to fall during our first look! Tim knew how to navigate the situation, not only in person, but delivered some incredible shots that captured our feelings and emotion during that special time. In addition to having to scramble our plans around, he knew how to prioritize and communicate with us so we focused on what mattered the most to us– and he delivered way above and beyond every single time.”

“I wish I could give Tim more than 5 stars. We worked with Tim for our engagement and wedding day photos. Originally, we weren’t even necessarily planning on having photos taken at our intimate wedding, but I am beyond elated that we found Tim. Tim is extremely communicative, thoughtful in his planning, kind, and makes everyone feel comfortable. He has a gift in getting to know people and capturing their relationship in photos. I look forward to the day that we need more photos taken so we can work with Tim again!”

Tim was great to work with! His friendliness and professionalism made the “getting ready” and post-ceremony family church photos painless and not seem like a chore. In between the ceremony and reception we wanted pictures taken at a location that he had never shot before and thus he wasn’t familiar with the space. Tim’s talent and eagerness to try new things made the pictures turn out fantastic. During the reception, we trusted Tim to capture the evening as he saw fit and he did not disappoint. Tim delivered the hi-res digital photos in a timely manner. Overall, we have no complaints of any size about using Thara Photo. We highly recommend him to everyone!

“Tim was an absolute professional. His coordination in the lead-up to the delay was timely and clear, and everything the day of went exactly to plan. He’s adept at the herding of cats that often is wrangling a wedding party & family, proving able to get the shots that he needs quickly and efficiently while still producing an amazing outcome. To that point, we couldn’t be happier with our photos. They are perfect and portray us as a couple exactly as we had hoped. We’ve already recommended Tim to our friends planning a wedding.”

“My husband and I worked with Tim for our wedding and we could not be happier! His work speaks for itself. He is such a talented photographer and has a great eye. On the day of our wedding, Tim did an excellent job of getting all the shots we wanted and more. We had a Catholic ceremony and he captured all of the important moments and was able to do so comfortably without a second shooter. We appreciated his enthusiasm throughout the day, especially as we took photos outside in 20-degree weather. We are thrilled with how the photos turned out and how he captured all of the emotions on our wedding day. We cannot recommend him enough!”

“I can’t recommend Tim enough! He is professional and amazing to work with. Originally contracted for our October 2020 wedding, Tim stuck with us through several postponements, shot our engagement photos, helped us find another photographer for our smaller ceremony when he wasn’t available, and got the best shots from our larger reception and celebration. He provided us with great direction, got all the shots we wanted and more, and put us at ease. Now we have the most beautiful photos to remember one of the most special days of our lives.”

“Tim was absolutely wonderful to work with for our wedding. From the outset, I let Tim know that my husband and I are introverted people who are don’t feel super comfortable in the spotlight. Tim not only made us feel comfortable, he actually made the photography experience enjoyable for us. He is laidback, organized, and clearly passionate about photography. The pictures came out beautifully. Not to mention, his services are much more cost effective than other photographers we looked at. I would enthusiastically recommend Tim to anyone with photography needs in Chicago.”
