Tim and his wife/co-photog Bethany are amazingly talented artists. Not only are they a cute couple and cool people, they are also impressive photographers. We were so happy we chose them for our wedding!

We wanted somebody with a contemporary style who can capture the moments in an artistic and memorable way. They came recommended to us from another photographer we reached out to--a good sign. A big selling point was that an engagement shoot and 2 photographers were included in their package. We didn’t think we need the engagement shoot, but it turned out to be a great time to get comfortable with the camera and Tim. And as a bonus we got more pics during this special time!

As a photographer Tim is really kind and clear with his directions while also being easy going and unpretentious. Bethany is awesome too; definitely a talented photographer in her own right and a great second set of eyes on the wedding day. They make a great pair.

On the day of our wedding, they took our photo requests seriously, but didn’t require any direction either. And during our couple/wedding party shoot, they didn’t ask us to do any cheesy poses. Love that. Then, once the ceremony and reception got rolling, we would get subtle reminders that they were around capturing it, but for the most part they blended in and avoided distraction. But during the good moments on the dance floor they weren’t afraid to get into the mix to capture the perfect shots. Both my husband and I commented that we forgot they were there every minute, which for getting married and focusing on your significant other was important to us. After the evening was over we got several positive (unsolicited) comments from our friends/family as well. I can’t recommend them highly enough!

The fact that my brother, my sister, two best friends, and I have all used Tim to photograph our five different weddings over the past couple years should speak volumes to the talent, professionalism and just general photographic awesomeness of Tim and his company.

My husband and I work in film and TV, and we knew we wanted a more documentary style of photography of our wedding day. We don't like posing, and Tim did an amazing job of making us so comfortable and just capturing the FUN moments all day. The photos are gorgeous, and I especially love how his second photographer captured my parents and friends in moments where I wasn't present during the day. It was so fun to see those images later and experience those parts of the events.

He got some really classic shots while at the same time experimenting with light and settings that he found on the fly in the few locations around our church and reception venue. This resulted in an amazing mix of put-this-in-a-frame-immediately-to-give-to-all-relatives photos and some I-don't-even-know-what-to-do-with-this-it's-so-beautiful-Is-that-beautiful-person-me?-this-should-be-in-a-magazine shots.

As for Tim's flexibility, I can't say enough. We didn't have time to do an engagement shoot, so Tim graciously worked with us to add hours onto his shoot time on the wedding day. He also stopped by our rehearsal dinner and took us outside to do a spontaneous shoot with just the two of us, resulting in some of my favorite photos showing our excitement the night before the wedding.

Friends and family were floored when they saw the photos, and I had a ton of requests for Tim's information after my photos came back and we shared them. Also, his turnaround time to get the photos back to us was a MONTH. I was shocked, since I expected the process to take a couple months at least based on other friend's experiences with their photographers.

Go with Tim Tab Studios, your photos will be absolutely amazing.

My husband and I knew from the very beginning that we wanted Tim to be our photographer because he had already shot incredible pictures for my brother-in-law's wedding, but after we met and talked with Tim, our decision to have him as our photographer was a no-brainer. He made taking pictures so easy and comfortable and he made the entire experience very enjoyable and stress free. Tim was very professional and always easy to get a hold of and answered any questions we had very quickly. Our wedding pictures are absolutely amazing and we are forever grateful to Tim for giving us pictures that so beautifully capture every emotion and important moment from such a special day!

I cannot express the unbelievable service I received from Tim Tabailloux, our photographer! The quality of each photo was so thoughtfully and artistically captured. After viewing his work my husband and I couldn’t imagine anyone else capturing such an important and special day.

I had specific shots I wanted and he honored all of my desires, and more. Being a Southern bride of Mississippi, I had seen the typical wedding shots, but I was looking for something a bit different. His photos are absolutely stunning. I have actually had trouble deciding which photos to frame. An excellent problem to have! I have an enormous family (thus wedding party) and Tim remained so calm and collected throughout the entire wedding day. His professionalism did not go unnoticed by my family who has since brought up previous photographers that were overwhelmed at other wedding events. He floated around like a photo phantom and caught shots I could not have imagined.

I cannot stress more how personable and what great service Tim provided. He promptly responded to emails and addressed all my concerns. Well worth every penny! To top it all off he returned several photos in a hasty pace that allowed me to share my special day sooner than expected! I have had friends wait over a year to receive any photos from their photographers and they have even had to beg their photographer for one good photo to put on their Christmas cards. Tim, returned the photos is impeccable timing, just long enough for me to anticipate them arriving. If you are looking for a truly talented and gifted photographer with a real calm and peaceful spirit, I cannot express more highly our experience with Tim.

Tim is brilliant, and his customer service, absolutely divine! He provided the sort of service you almost can't get anymore. Don’t hesitate another second booking him for your wedding/engagement shots you’d be making a mistake.

After a long search for a photographer, we were eager to choose Tim for our wedding. Although he has not yet shot our wedding (summer 2013) we recently did our engagement shoot with Tim and could not be happier with the photos. They are so phenomenal, I would fail in describing them in words. Tim's attention to detail and lighting is remarkable. I was in awe looking at our pictures. He was so easy-going, fun, and comfortable to be around that day and we really enjoy working with him. I researched MANY photographers before deciding on Tim and really his work beats everyone else I viewed online. With the price, you get FULL confidence in your photographer and his artistic ability, which to me, is worth every penny. It feels wonderful knowing that the day of my wedding I will not have to worry about whether or not he is capturing certain moments because he is so talented. There is an obvious difference between the quality of his pictures and other photographers out there. If you are considering Tim for your wedding, commit! You will not regret it.

Our photographers were simply amazing. The amount of pictures we received, the amazing memories captured by Tim & his wife were phenomenal. We couldn't be happier with the products received! They were personal, they were friendly, and never were in the way. We felt like celebrities and couldn't have asked for better memories captured by camera!!

TimTab Stuido's was by far the best splurge we had on our wedding. Our engagement photo's were AMAZING- we used them for our Save the Date's. He was incredibly professional, reliable, and fun! He went along with any idea we had on top of giving us the most for our money. Our pictures were incredible and we can't recommend him enough. He had an intern with him at our wedding and we loved having 3 photographers with us the entire day! They captured the best moments along with the creative shots we envisioned. Never once did I have to ask for a photo to be taken because they already had taken care of it. LOVE that they are a husband and wife team- we became friends with them throughout this process. IF you are looking for a deal & one of the BEST professional and creative photographers in the Chicago area- choose TimTab!!

Selecting a photographer for our wedding was one of the most important steps of the planning process for us - after all, pictures will last forever! I'm also usually the one behind the camera at events with friends and family (not professionally), so I was more than a little concerned as to how awkward I would look as the subject. But when we picked Tim Tab Studios, we definitely made the right choice.

Although we didn't get to do an engagement session, we met with Tim and Bethany before making our decision, and knew right away that they were good people. So friendly, funny, and down-to-earth. Tim was patient with all of our questions during the planning process, and even helped with feedback on the First Look locations. In fact, we're so appreciative of his suggestion to include Milton Olive Park (which neither my husband nor I had visited before), as many of the pictures we took there are our favourites from the day.

On the day of our wedding, Tim arrived at our hotel and immediately jumped in to snapping shots...and basically didn't stop all day. He moved around everyone so quickly and naturally, it was easy to forget he was there, which allowed him to get some great candids. Tim definitely has an eye for balancing subjects against their surroundings in a way that makes you just want to keep staring at the photograph. Seriously - I normally cringe looking at myself, but Tim has given us a portfolio of pictures that make me feel practically narcissistic. And let's not forget Bethany! She didn't shoot as heavily throughout the day as Tim, but she can claim some gorgeous shots to her name, and was key as his assistant in numerous other ways.

Having someone snap pictures of you during some of the most emotional and stressful days of your life could potentially be intimidating and/or obnoxious. Not so with Tim and Bethany. They leave you and your friends and family be, so that you'll end up with photos that are natural (no cheesy poses!!) and organic.

The other day, a pastor I know pulled me aside and asked me who had taken my wedding photos. He saw my pics on Facebook and told me that in 30 years he has never seen wedding photos that capture the sincerity, joy and beauty of a wedding like my photos did.

Tim Tabailloux has a unique combination of creativity, professionalism and people skills that make for a rare find in a wedding photographer. My husband and I chose Tim because our photos took a top priory for us and we wanted to get them just right. And we weren't disappointed! Our stunning photos help us relive a day that went by way too fast.

Tim is wonderful at bringing out the very best in people and transforming wedding photos from what could be an arduous process into a creative activity that everyone enjoys. If you're lucky enough to book Tim for your wedding, you're in for a real treat.

Where do I start.

From the day we emailed a quote request to the moment he left us at the reception our interactions with Tim (and Bethany) were all positive.

We first met Tim at a neighborhood Starbucks to get a good look at his work from start to finish. He was able to provide weddings in full and not just some of his top shots. This provided me with the confidence I needed to book him. We drove home from the meeting and we're like giddy kids that had just met a new best friend. We went ahead a day or so later and signed the contract via email. Needless to say, we were extremely satisfied with the level of professionalism we received from Tim through all of our communications.

Moving on to the ceremony and reception. Tim and Bethany arrived to our contract locations on time and once they got to work, you barely even noticed they were there. But looking through my pictures, I was so happy with all the little details they caught in my home, my hotel room and during the ceremony and reception. I was in tears (of happiness) at how special they made my wedding day simply by capturing some of the silly, fun and sweet things that happened that day.

I have to mention this, and I hope she'll laugh...At one point before the reception, Bethany even hooked me up with some of HER bobby-pins and post ceremony, helped scrub a small mud stain or two out of my dress. Bethany-- you should think about being a day of coordinator--you were so much better than mine! lol

I kid you not, my entire family and friends are still talking about how sweet and nice Tim and Bethany were. I promise that this will be my photographer of choice for any future needs as well as the ONE and ONLY photographer I recommend to friends and family.

I just received my disc of pictures and am beyond happy with the quality of his images, Tim's vision and his ability to turn a gray day into a storybook wedding! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!

Tim did a great job on both our engagement and wedding photos. We wanted a photographer who took more artistic photos and captured moments rather than a bunch of posed family shots. We were very comfortable around him and he really got some great shots that will help us remember this whole experience even better. Definitely worth the money!

My husband and I had a great time with Tim on our Big Day! He was easy to be comfortable around and was great at making us feel special. He even brought along a photographer friend of his for good measure, which made me even more confident that not a single detail would be missed.

In the beginning, I was one of those brides who had nightmares about all her vendors showing up late (or not showing up at all) on the day of, and when I admitted this to Tim he was quick to reassure me that he'd be there no matter what!

We absolutely love our wedding pictures and get compliments on them ALL. THE. TIME. I can't wait to print them!!! Thanks, Tim!!!

You get what you pay for, amazing work! A little more than we orginally thought we'd want to spend on a photographer, but so worth it! All I can say is that he makes it so fun to work with him, and he is so talented. If we ever use a professional photographer again, we'll definately be using him again. Check out his work on his website and see for yourself. He also keeps a really nice blog about all the photo shoots he does, which is also on the website. :)

As a wedding photographer myself, choosing who would capture my own wedding day was quite an ordeal! But when I found Tim and saw his portfolio, I was hooked! He captured our day in such a genuine, beautiful, and creative way. All of the photos expressed so much of who we are as a couple- which is the beauty of a keen eye in an artist. He made everyone involved feel at ease and became such a imperative part of our day. I respect Tim so much as a photographer, and would highly recommend his work to anyone! Thank you Tim!

I found Tim simply googling local photographers. I was extremely impressed by his gallery of photos. His pictures are like artwork. I wanted a photographer that could look through the lens and capture more than a simple portrait, I wanted the scene, the background to come alive behind me. I hired Tim to take some photos of my husband and I a few days before our wedding. Tim met us downtwon for a photo shoot. He had recommended the Chicago Cultural Center. It was the most amazing backdrop for photos. We took a walk about of the city. Tim's creativity with his photography and the images he captures is absolutely beautiful. My pictures turned out just the way I wanted them too. My friends and family loved the pictures as well. Tim has a lot of talent and I highly recommend him. He won't disappoint.

Tim was amazing from beginning to end! He drove up to Minnesota from Chicago for an extended wedding weekend. We decided to have our Rehearsal on Thursday evening (Saturday Wedding), and he was there right on time and ready to shoot after hours of driving. When Saturday came, he was one of the first at the church. We was fun to be around all day, and was full of creative ideas and fun shots. We had considered driving a 1/2 hour into St. Paul to get some classy downtown type shots, but decided to stay local- Tim made the area come alive in a way we didn't know before (he created incredible spaces). He got all of the important shots and surprised us with others. He was generous with his time and genuinely had a blast. We were willing to trust him and try new and "edgy" things and we couldn't be happier! TimTab Studios has provided us w/ photos we will forever cherish!

Tim is quite a gifted, unique photographer. He is calm, fun, and down to earth. I would book him again for any event. He offers the digital files of your photos so you don't get a bunch of pictures you don't want or feel obligated to buy any packages.
