About this pro
It has taken me some time to write this review, mainly because I didn't want to just post a review that said simply "Ian was a great photographer, I recommend him." Ian was much more than that. The entire Senior Picture experience for our daughter was above and beyond what we expected. From taking the time to meet with us and getting to know Destiny before the shoot, to being patient with Destiny on picture day when she was a bit nervous. Ian has a way of making you feel comfortable in front of the camera, stopping to show you some of the shots he took along the way. By the end of the shoot Destiny felt confident and fierce. It was what she called "the best day ever". And it didn't end there, the pictures were spectacular, they captured the absolute best of Destiny! She will have a hard time trying to select one of the many he took for her senior yearbook. Thank you Ian, we will definitely keep you in mind for future events.Sep 21, 2017Ian C.'s reply

Thank you, Rita!
Ian was quick, and respectful of my client. He was efficient and willing to adapt to requests made by me. The quality of photography is excellent and he is willing to go out of his way to do extra. - Use this guy, you won't regret it!Sep 11, 2015VerifiedIan C.'s reply
Thank you, Stewart!
I hired Saxon Cross Photography for my daughter’s senior pictures because I was impressed with the portfolio online and the pricing structure was simple. My expectations were definitely exceeded! I was very pleased with the entire process and the end result! Ian was very flexible in working with me to schedule a time to shoot, as my daughters schedule is so busy. We had to reschedule twice because of the rain. He was very easy to work with and very responsive to my emails. His suggestion of Maudslay State Park was an excellent location. My daughter was very comfortable during the photo session. We received the images back very quickly. I was amazed with the quality of the images and the variety of poses and backdrops. We absolutely loved the photos and couldn’t be happier. My daughter’s essence was definitely captured and we will cherish the photos for year to come. I definitely highly recommend Saxon Cross Photography.Oct 15, 2016VerifiedIan C.'s reply

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I have a flat pricing structure that applies to my services. I don't charge for prints, nor do I provide prints or albums. My sessions come with a print release, freeing my clients to print their images wherever they'd like (although I can recommend some excellent print shops!). My pricing is fair and reasonable for the time we will spend together, as well as the time I'll spend working on your images and making sure I have the right equipment to deliver images that you'll love.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The most important part of the process is making sure we are a good fit to work together. Clients know what they are looking for, and I know what my particular style is, so it's a matter of having a conversation, whether by phone or email, that identifies if we are a good match. From there, I love to hear the clients' ideas for their session, what their goals are for the final product, and then explain how I can help them achieve their goals.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I got started shooting real estate interiors, primarily, but quickly branched out to do family and high school senior photography. I'm entirely dedicated to portrait work now, be it weddings, high school seniors, families, or headshots.
