Best Gig Harbor real estate photographer

   I am always impressed with Taku’s ability to capture the essence of the listings my team represents. Not only that, but [Mihael] has been willing to work with the sellers if they see something they want to edit, reshoot, etc. Mihael is amazing to work with.

I finally found a photographer that I didn't feel like I needed to "Edit" the photos after! Mihael was Fantastic! He didn't just point and click the camera. He strategically planned each shot to flow through the property and tell a story. He diligently worked on each shot, changing and adjusting... the positioning and lighting, until the image was the best it could be. Thank you Mihael!read more

I would recommend Taku photography by Mihael to anyone looking for Top Notch Real Estate or Commercial photos.read more

Very impressed. I had to reschedule my appointment several times and was able to do so directly on the website. He arrived exactly on time and was able to do his work in a very professional manner.Pictures were excellent. I forgot to have the windows wiped down and he was able to make them look... clean in post production. He also was able to seamlessly edit out an undesirable background item as well.read more

Mihael from Taku Homes showed up for the scheduled appointment right on time and completed the photo shoot exactly within the time frame which he indicated it would take. Mihael really captured what we love best about our home. He was very professional and yet very friendly and was extremely... patient with our dog who seemed to somehow always get in the way despite trying to keep him in another room! We couldn't be happier with how our pictures turned out and our entire experience with Taku Homes.read more
