What They’re Saying

Liz is an absolutely phenomenal photographer who is always at the right place at the right time to capture a special moment, and she is equally as amazing at creating the perfect staged shot without losing any authenticity. We continually feature her work throughout our social media and collateral, as it is bright, eye-catching and beautiful. Her enthusiasm for her work and her naturally positive attitude makes her a delight to work with, and her photography simply gets better with each event she photographs for Girls on the Run!  –Izzy @ Girls on the Run-Chicago

Liz recently took headshots of the staff at our organization, and the results were phenomenal. Achieving the nearly impossible, she took a group of self conscious introverts, made the process fun, and managed to make us all look good. Her cheer and enthusiasm created an upbeat environment throughout the process, and even the most reluctant among us were pleased with the outcome. –Natalie @ USENIX Association

I found Liz and Tipping Point Photography thorough a non-profit my company supports and works with. Since our product is an athletic product we need to plan a photo shoot with models in motion. I had no experience with this, but after my first call with Liz I felt confident she could help through this process. She met/had calls with us multiple times to plan the event, secure models, pick an ideal location and ensure everything was in place for that day.

The day of the shoot ended up being unexpectedly hot (90 degrees) and Liz never missed a beat. She kept us on schedule and ensured my company got every shot we requested. Liz was so dedicated to our product and the project that I never felt unsure or nervous how things would turn out and as a startup knowing every cost you put into something is worth it can be an amazing feeling! That photo shoot was one of the best times I have had!

I would recommend Liz for any product shoot because of her dedication and because she follows through above and beyond anybody else. Every time I look at our images it brings a smile to my face and great memories!  –Amanda @ Independently Driven
