I've used Thumbtack before and had a good experience which is why I came back when my husband and I wanted to do a couples, themed photo shoot in our new home. Our Legacy seriously hit it out of the park. They provided excellent service by giving me a free consultation, and great communication leading up the shoot. It was very clear that Marteen and his crew were down to earth, enjoyed their work, took great photos. I browsed their portfolio before hiring and it only took one glance to know I was going with them. Marteen takes the time to make sure he really understands what you are looking for in your photos. He allows you to give him real time feedback during the shoot, and he isn't afraid to show his excitement when he knows he just captured something really special for you. I would 100% recommend Our Legacy. His crew of second photographers and assistants are also phenomenal and really bring a level of professionalism to the atmosphere while still maintaining a very natural and relational experience. Thanks guys!

Ande was my makeup artist and photographer for my wedding. She did an amazing job. My makeup was tailored to what I was comfortable with and the photographs are my most treasured possessions. She managed to capture all those special moments, especially the ones I couldn't be there for. Overall she managed the day well and even provided some much-needed advice on timing. Ande has a knack of making people feel comfortable while capturing the perfect shot. If you ever need a talented photographer, she is most definately your girl.

Kristi and Paul are the most fun and artistic photographers around, whether it's covering a wedding, engagement session, senior, or family portrait, they will always deliver above and beyond what they charge. They are super easy going and accommodating and always take us to the perfect location with the best and most flattering lighting. I highly recommend hiring them if quality and professionalism matter to you.

Very professional and friendly. I had to reschedule my appointment 3 times due to things coming up on my end and thought they might get annoyed but they didn't. They treated me like family, told me not to worry, understood that things pop up all the time with kids and were more than happy to reschedule each time. Our photographer was on location ahead of time ready for my boys and I. She was very experienced and had all the poses planned out yet still came up with some awesome shots on the fly. She was really good with my kids. Especially my 7 yr old who is very energetic and talkative. I could tell she enjoyed working with kids and was very patient. It was an overall excellent experience and have already recommended to friends and family. Thank you!

Going in, I felt awkward... I’m not a “model,” so a I wasn’t really sure how to “pose.” I went in expecting instruction from Morgan, and instead she treated me as if we were friends...! We talked, we laughed, we went from location to location, and before I knew it we had hundreds of photos for her to work with...! Because of my shoot with Morgan, I NOW understand the title of “lifestyle photographer.” I would strongly encourage you to book Morgan TODAY for your next event, whether wedding, birthday party, baby announcement, etc... your only regret will be if you end up NOT booking her...!

I highly recommend Art of Light! I needed a photographer at the last minute to take family photos during our beach vacation. Merriel was great to work with. She responded to my call quickly, had the best price, and communicated with me effectively so that she understood my vision for the photos. She came to a location convenient to us and even got our toddler to cooperate. The photos are beautiful and she provided the proofs and final images to us much sooner than expected. The entire process was fast and painless. Thanks again, Merriel!
