I was very impressed with the service I received from Timothy Whaley & Associates. Wally and Nick were our Photographers and were both on time, very friendly and outgoing and very easy to work with. They had great ideas and made everyone feel comfortable that day. I love my images I received and would definitely recommend them to future brides!! Our Videographer Cathy was amazing too and didn't miss a moment!! They all made our wedding day perfect!!!
OUR PHOTOGRAPHER: The photographer selected for us was Jerry Amber. He was AWESOME. My husband and I are only 22, so he indulged us in being goofy and taking all of the funny pinteresty photos that we wanted. He kept us entertained all day, and more importantly, he kept up with our INTENSE pace. He was a pleasure to work with and our entire wedding party has told us that they want his number.
WEDDING DAY: Our photographer arrived early, when things were hectic he told me to calm down, he knew what to do without being in the way. He directed when we needed it and just took shots when I wanted to direct. After shooting the church (we got all of the shots we wanted there), we spent about four hours in the city of chicago getting awesome shots at cool locations (the bean, business district, bridge, etc) At one point he started screaming at a giant crowd to move out of our way at the Bean and then proceeded to get everyone behind him as he shot photos of our wedding party spread out across almost the entire length of the bean. These photos are priceless!! Once we arrived at our reception location, The Shedd Aquarium, he followed us (literally running) through exhibits taking all of the photos that I requested. Once the reception began, he got the necessary photos of the venue and started taking shots of the tables. My one complaint is that there are 4 tables missing (happens to be some of the most important ones too) However, this is our fault, not his. We transitioned too quickly and he had to start taking pictures of the speeches. Since we were at the Shedd, we had a beautiful view of the city and towards the end of our reception, we snuck out to take pictures with the skyline, these photos are unbelievable and showed true talent. I could not recommend our photographer more, he was incredibly sweet and so much fun to work with, he was professional and took exceptional photos.
I was extremely pleased with the service provided by Timothy Whaley & Associates. I felt as though each of the photographers genuinely wanted to get to know my husband and I, so that they could shoot the types of photographs that fit our personal style. In addition, the photographers were not pushy and were very easy to get along with. We were very pleased with our wedding proofs; the pictures turned out beautiful!!
We chose Timothy Whaley & Associates after meeting with 3 other companies because we felt like it was a great fit with our budget, our photography/video needs, and they just made us feel comfortable in trusting they would follow through with a great product. We had engagement pictures taken and there was a slight mix-up with the photos we could proof and as soon as we made our concerns known, staff at TWA handled and solved the issue immediately. Our engagement and wedding photos turned out better than we imagined. Having 2 photographers at our event brought 2 great photo perspectives, which greatly enhanced our wedding day memories captured. Our video blew us all away with the intro and ending, which were truly unique and wonderful - not just a plain boring tape but edited to go above and beyond. I would and have recommended TWA to anyone needing these services for their special day.
The photographers and videographer were great!!!! They were so cool and amazing! Sometimes I forgot we had photographers there. The results were amazing!!!!!! Far beyond what I expected!
My photographer arrived on time and ready. He was friendly, fun, and excited to be there. He was so easy to work with and his pictures were amazing. When it came to the pictures I wanted and who I wanted them with I was not prepared and I was nervous to see the pictures because of this. But he did an amazing job, the pictures are beautiful and a great mix of guests, bridal party, family, food, everything you could think of. Bill, my photographer was like the superhero for the day. He was prepared for everything I wasn't and made it so much easier to relax and enjoy the day. My mother's dress ripped the second she was zipped up and really had nothing to fix it with. Bill had a sewing kit, bobby pins, safety pins anything that could have gone wrong with the bridal party he was prepared for. His pictures were terrific and was so easy to work with and just be real around allowing my husband and I, the bridal party, and guests to be themselves. I cannot thank him enough for the great job he did.
Our photographer and photo journalist were wonderful! We had many different stops between our ceremony and reception and they were up for anything. Our day ran smoothly and we were left with extra time to take outdoor pictures to add to our memories. Thank you Timothy Whaley! We could not be more pleased with the service that you provided for us!
I had two photographers and they were both great. THey were on time and very flexibe at doing what i wanted to do and to accomidate the weather. I would recommend them to anyone
We had excellent service! All of our questions were answered and our photographers were amazing! The young man running our photo booth did a great job! We love all of the pictures and he took the time to enlarge all of the photo booth pictures Ben and I were in!
They did an amazing job! Jerry was fantastic on our wedding day! He knew exactly what he was doing and the pictures turned out amazing! Great company to go with and trust for your big day!
Timothy Whaley & Associates was great to work with for our wedding photographs! They assigned the best photographer ever - Gokhan - he was charming, fun, sincere, knowledgable and captured everything to create a great memory in our pictures. Everyone that we spoke to during the process was very professional and helpful. They answered questions we didn't even know to ask about and created a perfect way to keep memories of our special day. We look forward to using them in the future for family portraits!
Everyone we worked with was very helpful. No matter the question or the situation, they were there with answers.
We are very satisfied with the services and products that TWA provides. Our photographer (Heidi) and photojournalist (Nick) were on time, cordial, and fun! The temps on our wedding day were COLD (Mid February, 2013), and being outdoor enthusiasts we wanted as many pictures outside as possible. Heidi and Nick were prepared to continue working as long as we could take the cold to get the pictures we wanted, and never once complained about the weather. They were conscious of the wedding party and allowed for 'warm up breaks' as needed, but always continued scouting the area for ideas while we were inside. The creativity, angles, filters used to capture different lighting aspects, and overall feel of the photos we received is everything we were hoping for. TWA provided us with an excellent service, professional staff, and captured our special day with some beautiful images.
We could not have dreamed that working with any photographer would have been as easy and enjoyable as working with Palo from TWA photography. From beginning to end we had an outstanding experience. He was friendly but very professional and kept everything moving without being rude. He was even fantastic with our 3 year old ring bearer who couldn't seem to keep both shoes on.
Prior to working with Palo we also had an amazing experience with the booking agent. He was willing to meet us late evening out in the suburbs to accommodate my husband's night shift schedule. They followed up with us, were very reasonable for the value they provided and incredibly friendly service at every turn.
The initial consultation with Timothy Whaley was excellent. They obtained detailed information and explained a great deal about their company. Samples of work was provided and I did not feel rushed at all.
Our photographer Nicki O. was fabulous. She was creative, fun and energetic.
Nicki interacted with all the guests and took a ton of pictures.
Heidi was our photographer and Douglas was our photojournalist. I have not seen the pictures yet, but I was very impressed with both of them the day of the wedding! Both of them exceeded my expectations by far! I could not have asked for a better photographer!
