Since day 1 of us meeting with Timothy Whaley & Associates we had nothing but GREAT things to say! We actually booked with them on the first sit down meeting. They make everything so easy for you to understand and are very easy to get in touch with. You leave a message with them and within 24 hours you will either get an email or call back. The last thing that a bride or groom wants to deal with on their wedding day is to make sure your photographer(s) are doing their job....and let me say we had 2 (two) of them and both weren't just on time, they were both EARLY!!!!! My husband and I are both still in contact with the company: picking out our bridal album (which they make it very easy), getting our Thank You's ready, picking out our canvas cluster, etc. and I can give them a call/email at anytime and don't have to worry about them getting back to me!! (Oh, and my sister and brother in-law also used them over 5 years ago)
Quality all around!Reviewed on 3/30/2015 Andrea B
When I initially met with Timothy Whaley & Associates I felt like I was completely taken care of right from the start! The entire staff was extremely friendly and flexible. I was happy to learn that I would be matched with a photographer based on my style and needs. My photographer was awesome and fit in perfectly with my bridal group. She listened to our needs and had ideas for photos that really helped showcase my vision. Our second photographer did an awesome job capturing many candid, in the moment photos and again fit right in with our bridal group. I was so glad that I chose Timothy Whaley & Associates as my photographer and highly recommend their services. The quality of the photos turned out beautifully and I could not be happier!
Wonderful company, great experience!Reviewed on 11/06/2012 Lindsay W
I found Timothy Whaley Photographic Artists right after I switched my status on Facebook to 'engaged'. I started noticing all the wedding ads and I got more and more curious about the different vendors. Shopping around for the right photographer seems like a shot in the dark sometimes. Everyone makes the same promises about taking care of you and making your day extra special. I am grateful to share my experience with other brides and to let them know that I have found people that live up to the promises they make- and surpass them. Right from the very beginning I could tell that Timothy Whaley was going to be perfect for my wedding. On our initial meeting, one of their out-of-the-box photographers was able to show us how they could best capture our wedding moments through their photo journalistic approach. He was so easy to talk to and we were on the same page from the beginning as far as what I wanted my pictures to look like and the 'vibe' I wanted to portray. He able to explain to me how their services are more of an investment in a relationship-than just supplying a product- that will pay off throughout our lives as we create new memories and grow our family. This is the kind of relationship I was looking for in trusting someone to capture all the best moments on my special day. I'm confident they will surpass anyone's expectations for photography as they certainly did mine. My pictures turned out better than I could imagine and I have received nothing but complements from other people about how wonderful they are. I can't thank them enough!
I'm very happy that I chose TWA for my wedding. They were very professional from the first meeting till the day of the wedding. I highly recommend using them. Mikhail and Douglas are great photographers :)
Luke was absolutely amazing! He totally nailed our style and the pictures turned out fabulous! He had everyone laughing! From the beginning to the end we had a wonderful experience with TWA! Highly recommend!!
TWA is a amazing company to work with. Sal & Nick were are photographers for our wedding day. They were able to capture every moment of our special day to give us lasting memories. I can't say enough good things about them. The customer sevice is exceptional. They go above and beyond. Exceptional work!! I am extremely pleased with my wedding pictures and highly recommend them ♡
Heather was the photographer and Val was the videographer. The whole process was stress free because of their attention to details and constant ability to help us with planning along the way. They were also great about not being too in your face with pictures but also captured all the memories I was looking for!! I would recommend them to anyone!!
Spectacular! Such an easy company to work with! Everyone we worked with was extremely well-informed and professional! Our photographer, Abel, was absolutely amazing! He spent a full 12 hours with us and captured some truly wonderful memories of our day. We received over 1000 photos and were able to see our proofs 2 weeks earlier than expected! We also used the video service and Rex, the videographer, was awesome! He stayed longer than his contracted time and captured so many fun moments from the day! Overall, we had a wonderful experience and we can't thank the team enough for helping us capture our memories!
Office staff is sub-par. One of their features is a "registry" where people can basically purchase gift cards for the couple to use on photos rather than buying another spatula - cool idea, but we requested the registry cards to include in shower announcements four different times over six months and NEVER received them. Our photographer had A bit of an attitude problem leading up to the big day (e.g. no suggestions on backup indoor locations for a winter wedding, putting up a lot of resistance to staying until 11 to photograph the grand exit even though it was within the time allotted by the contract), but he pulled through and was just fine to work with on the wedding day. The second shooter was also changed one week before the wedding, and no one communicated this to us until I got a random email asking where and when to show up. Overall, good photos but I would not use them again - too "corporate" and not enough emphases on customer service.
where do I even start?! TWA has blown our minds with everything that they have done for us from the first meeting, the wedding day, and even to building our wedding album. There isn't anything that you can think of that they do not offer! For my husband, the photos of the day had to be very specific for him that was the one thing he wanted from the day and they captured that. When it came time to picking the photos, it was hard to narrow down which ones we wanted to have in the album. I wanted them all! THANK YOU so much to everyone at TWA for everything that you guys have done for us and to help make our day the best day of our lives!
My wife and I used TWA for our wedding and we are extremely pleased with their services! Everyone we worked with was very professional and they made sure our entire process was an easy one. Our photographer, Joe, was well prepared the day of our wedding by making sure he took all the photos we had requested, as well as providing great ideas of his own. Our pictures turned out as beautiful as we had imagined then and we cannot wait to see the video!
I would highly recommend a package that includes two photographers. We had Walter and Jillian. With two, the first look will be captured completely from both sides. Walter was a good resource for setting up a lot of your standard shots and working with the space. Jillian's journalistic style was great for snapping pictures of our happy guests, and she is absolutely AMAZING with the children (i.e. flower girls, ring bearer). We ended up with 1500+ pictures to choose from for our prints and album. The albums really are of fantastic quality, but VERY expensive. The downsides were: not being able to skip some of the prints included with the package and apply that as a credit toward the album, the prints for family and friends to order are expensive, and the website layout could use a design update to make it more conducive for going through those 1500+ pictures.
My husband (Andrew) and I were extremely pleased and happy with how our engagement & wedding photos turned out. Everyone at TWA were great to work with. Especially our main photographer Lucas; he is incredibly talented and was such a joy to work with. We received so many compliments on our engagement and wedding photos taken by Lucas; we are eternally grateful for his amazing work/photographs. Andrew and I greatly appreciate everyone's professionalism, kindness, talent & hard work. We will continue to highly recommend TWA to friends/family and to anyone looking for a GREAT wedding photography company.
I was so happy to never have to talk to this company ever again. Use an Iphone
We used TWA for our November 5 wedding and were so pleased with their services! Our photographer, Mikhail, was wonderful to work with on our big day and made sure to take all our photo requests into consideration, as well as provide ideas of his own. Our pictures turned out beautiful!
Very easy to work with! Took lots of fun pictures they were great
I used Timothy Whaley's services for my October wedding. I have to say that my husband and I were impressed since the moment of the consultation. Everyone was so nice and helpful, made us feel comfortable and confident. Since our engagement pictures I was so impressed with the work of the photographers, I couldn't wait for our wedding day pictures. I was so right when I picked this company, as soon as I saw my wedding pictures, I was so in love with them. My photographers Mikhael and David were the nicest, most responsible and charming guys! It was such a pleasure working with them! I highly recommend any future bride to use this company's services! Jennifer Santoro
From our first meeting everyone was very welcoming friendly and knowledgable! Our photographer was Mikhail he did an amazing job! He had a real passion for making sure the shots were just right and very was professional Highly recommend this photographer!!!
Right after getting engaged I knew from day one I wanted to use Timothy Whaley. I saw pictures in my magazines and online that I just loved!! We were paying for the wedding ourselves and I was nervous because they were a little over our price range. After meeting with Nick and after he answered all our questions we knew we wanted to use them! We worked with Molly to set up our engagement photos and she was very nice. We had Wally and Kit for our photographers and they were absolutely amazing! They both made us feel so comfortable and Wally made us laugh and enjoy our day even more! We just received our proofs and absolutely love them! We had our reveal party and we're able to ask as many questions as we needed and to purchase or album there is a payment plan and we were very pleased to here that!! I would reccomend Timothy Whaley to everyone getting married!!!
We booked TWA for photography and video services. We are very pleased so far with the work done. Photos are amazing and their staff is very friendly. Our main photographer was Jorge Medina, he did an amazing job! Would gladly recommend TWA.
From our first consultation with TWA to the last picture at our reception, my husband and I couldn't be more pleased. The experience and expertise that both our photographers, Mikhail and Greg, brought to our wedding day was more than we could ask for. They were both so funny, creative, and enjoyable to work with. The decision to go with two photographers instead of one was definitely the right one, as we got to see two different perspectives at the ceremony and reception. We couldn't be happier and all that's left is the difficult decision of which amazing pictures to put in our wedding album.
Our photographer was Abel and he was outstanding!! He went above and beyond to help us get to our reception. Abel's photographs capture every emotion that everyone was feeling. He made sure to take time with us to get all the pictures we wanted. He was even able to keep up with our crazy families. He wanted to make our special day was captured just the way we wanted. He even let our nephew take a picture with his camera to show him how it all works! I will always choose Timothy Whaley! Everyone that we have worked with have been 110% helpful and willing to work with us. A few people that we had the pleasure of working with were Nick, Amanda, John, and Abel.
I had a horrific experience with this company. I would not recommend them to anyone. I did not receive my photos from my wedding for close to 6 months and have not yet received the files for my engagement session for well over a full calendar year. The photographer was a very nice man, but the photos came out mediocre at best (in my opinion). Their prices seemed low compared to the other companies I interviewed, but their service and product reflected those prices (in my opinion).
We booked Timothy Whaley for photography, video, and for our photo booth. We met with Nick and were quickly sold on the beautiful sample wedding albums and gorgeous online photos and his great customer service. We had the pleasure of working with Bill and Nick for photography and they were awesome to work with. Bill spent the day with the girls and Nick was with the guys. Both were early and very flexible. The proofs are unbelievable and we are so happy that we went with TWA. I would highly recommend them for your special day.
We had Timothy Whaley Photographic Artists do our wedding picture, and we couldn't have been more happy with the way that all of the pictures turned out. Heather, our photographer, was absolutely wonderful and so professional. She did a great job of making sure that we got all of the shots we were looking for, and while building our album we have had a lot of support from Jenny at the Lombard location. All in all, we were very happy with the results.
