Mr. Sechrest stayed in constant contact with us prior to the shoot, inquired about hobbies and other pertinent info pertaining to interest for adding props. for the shoot. Mr. Sechrest also hooked us up with a contact for make up (she did an excellent job). He took us to an excellent location for the best lighting and moved the scheduled day for the shoot so the weather was optimal. Mr. Sechrest was patient with my daughter as she changed clothes and tried different poses, he was willing to cross some treacherous rocks near the water to get the best pics possible. His knowledge of the area for locations was outstanding, he took quite a few really good pictures and the price for his work is very reasonable. I highly recommend Mr. Sechrest for photo shoots and I plan on using his service next year for my other daughter's graduation pictures.

Our family needed a photo of all 12 of us that included 4 little boys under 4. Danielle worked great with the kids and offered lots of different groupings and poses. I was most impressed by how she could be in the middle of a group shot and pause for a great candid she saw out of the corner of her eye.

We have had both a family and individual (my daughter's senior photo) photo shoot with Kenny Goldberg and both times we had a wonderful experience. At each session he took care that we had a variety of poses and spots within the location to choose from. He is professional yet fun to shoot with. He is extremely patient and knows how to get a "good shot." His turn around time was excellent. What I love, since I am always so short on time & I do not have a lot of patience, he will point out & send only the shots he thinks are worthy of consideration. I highly recommend Kenny and will continue to use him for all of our photo shoots.

Amazing photographer! Arrived early, stayed later, made sure we had a list of photos for our big day to keep us on track and took charge to make sure we captured all our desired photos! Most importantly he really made us feel comfortable on our big day, those awkward photo moments were non existent! Thank you so much for being wonderful!

Elena did an amazing job for my really simple courthouse wedding. She made it look so beautiful! Not only did she show professionalism but she had so much patience during the waiting process which we appreciated so much. She gave us direction on how to pose and went above and beyond to get the perfect shot! All of my photos looked great even before editing and then the finished product came out beautifully. I highly recommend Elena she’s super talented and a great people person. She will make your special occasion memorable :)

What a wonderful experience! I came in from out of town and out of state and Heather met with me on the phone to go over my photography needs. She then met me promptly, at the noted time and location and helped me complete the photo shoot. The photos were delivered in a timely fashion and came out perfect. I'd highly recommend Heather for any job you may have, you will not regret it!

Aamir was wonderful to work with! I even had a flat tire and had to push my time back a little bit, and he was more than willing to accommodate for me. The photo shoot itself was a great first experience. I will definitely be going back and referring friends!

My fiance and I hired Chasing Light to do our photo and video for our wedding. Their pricing was perfect for what we were looking for and we were very excited to be getting both photo and video by the same team. We recently had our engagement photos and cannot begin to explain how happy we are to have chosen them. Our photographer, Russ, was very flexible with the date and even helped us find the perfect location. He definitely listened to what we had in mind and was even ok with my fiance wearing his sunglasses for some of the shots. Russ was very easy to work with and had 2 preview images back to me within the next hour! On top of that, he had the rest of our images ready the next day and they are everything we hoped for and more! I have friends who had to wait weeks to get their engagement photos back. Needless to say, we are obsessed with our engagement photos and CANNOT wait to see how our wedding photos and video turn out.

Laura did an outstanding job during the photo shoot staying patient with my 17 month old son and orchestrated a beautiful experience for my parents-in-law. And the finished product was absolutely stunning! The photos made me cry! She captured beautiful moments of my family that we will treasure for a lifetime! We've already planned 2 more photo shoots with Laura and will continue to use her as our family photographer! I would HIGHLY recommend Laura Carrasco!

Dan has done several photo shoots in my home for my family and separate shoots for my daughter's acting portfolio. He's always been professional, prompt, and has taken time to get the "right" shot(s). He finishes the photo proofs and touch-ups quickly, so we haven't had to wait very long to get them printed. We've been happy with the quality of the pictures and with the entire experience.

Lucas was great to work with!! He did a shoot with myself and one of my "clients" for my new personal training business website and marketing materials. He was comfortable to work with, made posing etc. suggestions and combined them with what I had envisioned. I just did the shoot today so I have not seen the final results, but I'm confident I will love them as he showed me some on his camera--I was very impresses and pleased with his style and lighting. I'm looking forward to seeing the final results. Thanks Lucas for a fun photo shoot!

Jamie was on time and very professional. We used him for an office photo shoot and he blended in seamlessly. We were able to work as we normally do and he was just a fly on the wall documenting our everyday work life. I would definitely recommend Voltage Digital for photography!

I contacted Marisa about a two-hour family session (one hour for our family together together, and then one hour for quality pictures of my stepdaughter). I could not be happier with our whole experience, and our photos are going to be treasured memories for our family. First, Marisa is incredibly organized, responsive, and committed to her craft - you can tell from the first email that she wants you to have an experience you will remember and that you end up with photos that you truly love. She will consult with you on your vision for your photo session beforehand and I really enjoyed that because it definitely makes you part of the process (if you want to be - if you do not want to be, then Marisa is definitely happy to share her vision and ideas with you, as well, and to take the lead). And then there's the day of the photo session -- and that's where the magic really happens because she captures not just the posed photos (and they are wonderful) but she captures the "in between takes" ... and those, by far, are the ones you treasure above all. The uncontrolled laughter, the silliness - those are what memories are made of. All in all, I wholeheartedly recommend Marisa for your next family photo session.

I hired Puneet to do a shoot for my business. He was very responsive, professional and artistic. It was so fun working with him and seeing the different ways he was highlighting my products. When I received my online gallery, I was in love. I couldn’t believe how amazing the photos turned out.. and with such quick turn around. I will definitely be hiring him again with my next batch of products.
