We love feedback! Please take a moment to review our work and share your experience with

Happy Buddy PhotoArt is an excellent photo service. Both Jill and Gordon are true professionals. They are attentive,
calm, and benevolent. They have a definite plan and a precise concept while performing their task. They approach each
setting, each individual each angle individually and realize the task with precision and perfections. They have truly
artistic souls and they find inspiration in photography in general. Also, they are not stern in their methods of taking
the photographs; they always find a way for variance and improvisation. Their main concept of photography is to capture
a life, to grasp the very music of the moment, to immobilize the very aura of the romantic moment, to outline the very
essence of the mood. You will never regret that you have hired Jill and Gordon as your photographers.

We absolutely loved Gordon & Jill!! They were so professional and friendly! Jill was in constant contact through email.
We haven't received our album yet, however we just viewed our photos and they are absolutely amazing!!! The best moments
were captured. We will now have amazing keepsakes to keep forever because of the amazing job that they did photographing
the most important day of our lives. They were early...and stayed the whole day with us!!! We will definitely recommend
to all our friends who have yet to be married!!! Thank you both so much!!
- Noel Valenzuela & Tiffany Cruz
I worked along besides Jill and Gordon as a videographer for a wedding May 2010 and I must say they were great. I
like their energy and the efficient way in which they worked. I, as a photographer myself, can say they captured every
moment in detail to be exact. I know that if I ever get married, they will be the ones I call upon to be my photographers
because every special moment should be captured in a special way and I know they are great, so therefore, I will call
on them. Thanks Jill and Gordon for your kind work at Noel and Tiffany's wedding.

Jill and Gordan were a joy to work with for my wedding on 4/24/2010. The photos were everything we had expected and more!
They helped us with our engagement photos and provided a great package rate for your wedding. They were very professional
and arrived on time for everything. I have nothing but good things to say about selecting Happy Buddy PhotoArt and would
recommend then to anyone.

Jill & Gordon were great! We first saw them in action and saw their work when friends of ours got married almost 2
years ago. After seeing the finished photo album and hearing the good things our friends had to say, we met with them
and ended up hiring them. They were in constant communication prior to the wedding; any email I sent and questions I had
(and I had plenty) were responded to promptly and thoroughly. On the day of, Jill & Gordon were just as many other
reviewers have described them; unobtrusive, fun, enjoying what they do, and efficient but not rushing us. We are waiting
to get the album back, but everyone says (and we agree) that the photos they took were stunning! From pre-ceremony to
church to reception, they captured every moment we wanted, and plenty of candid shots we never would have thought to ask
for. We can't say enough good things about Happy Buddy, and will cherish the images they captured for years to come!
- Lauren and Atif
Jill and Gordon were ABSOLUTELY wonderful. They put me and my wishes above all else, and really wanted to make sure I as
getting everything I wanted out my of my pictures. They were so professional, and I loved that they offered you two
photogaphers. They were able to capture both my husband and I getting ready which was really important to me. Not to
mention that there were so many shots to chose from. The album that they produce is so incredible. It is unlike anything
I have seen before. It is a magazine style album so the photos are layered and go over the entire page as oppose to just
4x6 standard photos. They are so wonderful, they even delivered it to me so that it would not get damaged in transit.
Ilooked into many photographers and their prices were by far the best and I am lucky to have found them. If anyone is
looking for a photographer you MUST call Jill and Gordon. Check out their website, their work speaks for itself! Thank
you Jill and Gordon!!!

HappyBuddy Photo Art did an amazing job with our wedding! We couldn't be happier! We received MULTIPLE compliments on the
wonderful job they had done with our photos...and those were just the proofs!! We live in St. Charles, about 45 minutes
West of Chicago, and had our wedding ceremony at St. Mark's Lutheran Church and our reception at The Historic Hotel Baker.
Jill and Gordon showed up at our church right on time, as promised. The neat thing about them working as a pair is that
Gordon was able to be with the guys getting ready, and Jill was able to be with me, the bride, and my group of girls
while we were getting ready. You really are paying for one photographer, but getting two for the price of one. As we all
know, it's expensive with wedding planning, but the prices were actually very resonable. During the ceremony and the
reception, we didn't even see Jill or Gordon...but then when looking through our proofs, we saw they were there because
they didn't miss a thing!!! They captured things that Brian and I forgot we even did! It was great! But they are not the
pushy, in your face, make you pose for a photo - type photographers! We LOVED them! The books they put together for you
and your spouse are amazing! They give you the choice of picking out your own photos, and they will do the rest of the
Please feel free to call Jill and Gordon and request our phone number if you'd like to speak with us. However, I am telling
you that you WILL NOT be disappointed. They are excellent. The quality of service is beyond what you will pay for. Also,
they are really QUICK with responding to you. I would email Jill at 8:00am, and she'd respond 20 minutes later. So fast!

What can I say! My husband and I were SO pleased with HappyBuddy Photo! From the beginning they were very professional
and accommodating, traveling all the way to the south side to meet me for my first consultation. On the wedding day,
they were so discrete, we didn't even see them, and yet they managed to take all of the shots that we wanted.
The pictures are very high quality and absolutely stunning! They look like they were taken from a magazine. Jill
is also very responsive to emails and will get back to you right away if you have any questions. Best of all,
we got everything for such a great value. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding photographer!!

The first word that comes to mind in describing Photo Buddy Art is
amazing! Gordon and Jill are exceptionally creative and extremely professional, prompt and reliable. My husband and I have
received numerous compliments from guests and members of the bridal party stating how much fun they had working with Gordon
and Jill in addition to commenting on how they made everyone feel comfortable and at ease.
Their work is unbelievably innovative, beautiful and fast! We knew right away that we wanted to trust Happy Photo Buddy
with our unforgettable and cherished memories and we are glad we did. Did I mention how beautiful their photo albums are?
Seeing it is believing it. The one we chose will display nicely on our contemporary coffee table for all of our family and
friends to view.
Thanks for everything!

My wife and I married in Chicago about a year and a half ago, and we are still getting compliments on our wedding photos.
Gordon and Jill did such a great job. They were very thoughtful and also very informative. They gave us some great words
of advice that really helped us out.
Also, I have a lot of family overseas who didn't have web access until after the photos went offline, so Gordon and Jill
put them back up for us. We loved Jill and Gordon so much that we referred them to two other couples who used their
services and have great photos to show for it. You will love Happy Buddy.
- Daniel and Beverly
HappyBuddyPhoto was fantastic! The photographers were wonderful to
work with. They were flexible and able to meet my needs and provided excellent service and products. Overall, the work
they did was highly professional and I would strongly recommend this company to brides-to-be!
- Beth and Brian
My friend introduced me happybuddy photo for our wedding, and we were
VERY happy with the package price, the service and of course the photos. They took excellent photos, and we received good
compliments on our pictures from our guests as well. All photos were available within a week after the wedding.
Also, They are very nice people and easy to talk to, and people received the photos within a week after ordering.
Our wedding album is customized in a way that it is telling a story, and friends and family who saw our wedding album
loved it. All of my girlfriends now want to ask them for their wedding photos because they love the pictures and the album.
- Rayna and Steve
HappyBuddy Photo is wonderful -- they managed to be everywhere they needed to be, taking photos in a very relaxed,
non-pushy kind of way. They came beforehand and really scoped out the locations, finding the nice places to take photos
and were also responsive to suggestions from us and our family/friends -- we just loved the photos. Lots of natural
party shots ,as well as the exact posed photos that we asked for. They also have a number of photo packages, so that
you can figure out exactly what you want and keep within your budget. They are also so nice! To be honest, during
wedding planning, I had been putting off finding a wedding photographer because I had seen friends and family have
trouble with pushy or unresponsive wedding photographers -- HappyBuddy Photo was recommended to us by our caterer and
I can see why; my worries vanished once I met with them. High quality work, and they were great to work with. I cannot
say enough good things about them - fabulous wedding photographers!
- Nicole and Jim
Oh my gosh! Those pictures are sooooooo amazing!!!!!
I cannot thank you enough for all that you both did for the wedding
Everyone is still talking about how amazing you two are!
Those photos are absolutely stunning.

HappyBuddyPhoto was absolutely fantastic! They were so quick

Those photos are absolutely stunning.

The album and pictures exceeded our expectations, and we are very happy with it. We’ve been showing the album off
to our friends, family and co-workers, and we’ve also recommended your services to other people with upcoming weddings.
If you ever need a reference, we would be more than happy to provide one!
- Faidat and Edmund
We can't thank you enough for all the time, fun and beautiful pictures
you provided for our wedding! You went above and beyond and we'll always pass you name on. We appreciate everything and are
so glad you could be part of our wedding!
Happy Buddy is so talented and amazing to work with. They were flexible to meet our budget and they did such an
amazing job. We really did not want a bunch of posing shots, but we wanted them to tell a story with their pictures,
more of a photojournalist perspective. This is exactly what they did. They were so pleasant to work with and even
created a registry for us online so our family could contribute pages/spreads to our photo album. When we received
our wedding photos we were amazed with their work. We hardly saw them the night of the wedding and they caught every
moment - they never missed a shot! I would HIGHLY recommend using Happy Buddy.
- Jessica and Ty
We don't like them, we LOVE them :D
thank you thank you thank you!! we really enjoyed our wedding and we really liked your present but
unobtrusive style. we really couldn't be happier!
- Theresa and Jason
My husband and I were very pleased with the service that HappyBuddyPhoto provided for us. We loved our photos and
our photo album to this day gets complimented by everyone who comes into our home. Anyone who is looking for a great
deal, wonderful photos, and very nice photographers, definitely consider this couple. They were truly a joy to work
with on a day that can get really hectic! Thanks HappyBuddyPhoto!
- Michelle and Kevin
We would absolutely recommend Jill and Gordon to anyone we know. They were around and attentive all day and night,
but never in our guests faces or ours. They captured every amazing shot we could have wanted and a few we weren't
expecting. I could NOT BE HAPPIER with our wedding album. Jill sent me layouts within a month and I only had to make
two changes. Everyone who sees it loves it.
- Theresa and Michael
we just saw the pictures online and WE LOVED THEM!!! they turned out absolutely awesome! thanks so much for doing a great
job, we really were extremely happy with the way they turned out. thanks again!!!

Very Responsive and Flexible to our needs. They struck a good balance between artistic and posed shots. Thanks for
everything! Our friends and family had only wonderful things to say about the pictures.
- Dan and Annette
My husband and I were very glad we chose Happy Buddy to shoot our wedding. They were very responsive, flexible,
and of good value. We met with several different photographer's before coming across Happy Buddy. They were in our
price range for the package we were looking for. I would recommend them to anyone!
- Nicole Griffin
We love our wedding photos! HappyBuddyPhoto was great to work with and they've put in so much effort to make sure
we are satisfied with everything. They told us their goal is to make every single picture a piece of art and they
did it! We’d highly recommend them to everyone!
