Dayvid was great to work with for my daughter's quinceañera . I researched a lot of photographers and he is the only one that made me feel comfortable enough to book without meeting him since I live out of state. He showed up on time was very easy to talk to and gave me a great product. I would definitely use him for my other daughter if he is still around.

We hired Will to shoot two large group photos for a corporate training and deliver prints by the next business day and he completed the job seamlessly and professionally. He was easy to get in touch with and very reliable. I coordinated this training in 15 different markets with 15 different photographers, and Will was one of our favorites! I would recommend Will for any photography job in the area!

Ivan is great to work with and he genuinely cares about what you want and the quality of the photographs. Ivan and I got together on very short notice when I needed graduation portraits this June. He is very passionate about his craft. He showed so much familiarity with his equipment, skill and technique. He was very creative and comfortable to work with and even helped me with my poses. My senior photos are beautiful and I'm really satisfied! I recommend him to everyone.

Brad was fantastic! When he arrived at our location, he quickly scanned the scenery, and within seconds was able to determine the most beautiful spots to shoot. He picked several places based on existing architecture, landscape and foliage. His vision was amazing! A true photographer. I was worried about all the people in the area, but he knew how to set up the shots so it looked like we were the only ones there. He was also able to direct us into poses that may have felt unnatural, but translate wonderfully to the finished photo. The results were beautiful! I'm always concerned about color and lighting - I see so many photographers get it wrong, but our photos are truly professional quality. If you want someone who strikes a nice balance between efficiency, artistry, and reasonable pricing (and who doesn't?) then I highly recommend Brad!

We had Marc go to my grandson's house to take graduation pics. They turned out great. He had a mobile studio for the formal pics, plus he took a lot of addirional outdoor portraits. We were really pleased with the pics, his approach, and the price.

Nona is hands down one of the best photographers our family has ever worked with! Very professional and extremely good at what she does. We had to reschedule d/t the bipolar Houston weather and she worked well (and FAST) to get everything done, EVEN had a few pics ready in less than 24hrs!! I only wish we could've gotten the remaining photos a little sooner as a small project I was working on was delayed (and so many were so good!). To be fair, she delivered on her original ETA AND photos were done just before the holidays, so we know she was very busy. I would absolutely recommend her to everyone I know, our pictures have gotten rave reviews from family and friends!

If you're looking for the best in quality, look no further. I do research for a living and checked out many top-of-the-line photographers before choosing to work with John. His knowledge, detail, and professionalism was exceptional. Everything he promised before, during, and after the shoot he delivered on time and just as he said it would be. Simply the best.

We have hired Kelli and Mactaghart media for both business events and personal events. She is creative and works so well with kids, teens and individuals diagnosed with special needs. Their prices are great too. I love my daughters graduation pictures. Also if you hire her for an event like a Gala or a company party she blends in and you don't even see her until she produces the fabulous candid pics of your guests, the decor and the major events of the evening in a very creative fashion.

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.

I recommend Danielle very highly. My husband and I did an engagement photoshoot last night. Danielle was on time, very fun and adventurous for creative pictures, puts you at ease, she loves what she does and that makes it great because you know the work will be good. We had a sunset shoot and it was perfect! She knew where to go, how to pose and also was open for more ideas if we wanted. We were there before the sunset so had fun before during and after it. We cannot wait to see all the photos! Thank you Danielle :) PS: she will be our wedding photographer as well.

Sheryl is a wonderful photographer. I was able to get a great deal on a graduation photo shoot, and honestly I'm not sure how I'll pick out which ones to send! She has a wonderful eye for the whole shot, she's quick and efficient, and the edits are subtle and lovely. I would definitely recommend Sheryl Bale as a photographer for any life event.

Susan is an amazing photographer.  The pictures look like they belong in the hospitals (labor and delivery wing) and in magazines. I was so happy when she took time with the baby and didn't rush. She was so loving and understanding and we even stopped between the shoot to feed baby. When baby was crying, she encouraged me to stop and pick her up to calm her and then we would start again whereas at other studios I felt rushed and like I was inconveniencing them. She has an amazing imagination and she was relentless to find the perfect shot for the baby. When the baby was too fussy she figured out a way to take the shots of her ON ME!! You can't even tell I was holding her. In my opinion, that is truly amazing! You could really tell this is a talent and true passion of Susan's. The pictures came out so amazing and I would definetly use her again for any of our photographic needs.

Hugh was amazing to work with from prepping for the event until after the event. He was professional, friendly and super helpful. He was able to bring along a friend who was equally as great. The guests at the event loved both of them and inquired about who the photographers were after the event! And of course we were more than happy with the quality of the photos! Great work!!

I put out a thumbtack request for a photographer the night before my wedding anniversary in a last minute effort to try to give my wife the gift of family pictures for out anniversary. Due to my last minute request I was sure no photographers would be able to come out the very next day. Within 2 minutes of me submitting the thumbtack request Rachel actually called me on the phone and said she would love to come out the very next day and take our family pictures! Rachel was so accommodating and even was answering text message questions I was sending until 11:00 P.M. that night! The day of my anniversary I surprised my wife with a beautiful little family pictures certificate that Rachel had made custom for me the night before. Rachel met up with us that afternoon for the photo shoot and she even drove all the way up Big Cottonwood Canyon where we wanted the photos done. Rachel's patience with our screaming kids was amazing and her professionalism was unsurpassed. Rachel also has an amazing eye for art and photography and thought of some amazing ways and ideas to capture some truly amazing moments of our family. She really captured the relationships our family shares instead of just pictures of our family staring at the camera smiling. I HIGHLY recommend Rachel. Thanks Saints Photography!!!

Palo and Alex were our wedding videographers and put together an amazing edit! It was super easy working with them leading up to our big day and the day-of. They're fun people and got along well with our photographers and other vendors. We received our deliverables ( + raw footage) within reasonable amount of times. HIGHLY recommend them for any wedding. Your wedding day really is a blur, and we were more than happy with our decision to go with Palo to capture all the feels of the day/night.

I was looking for a photographer who could do my graduation pictures last minute and looked for someone on my campus. I found Victor and he was literally the best. I was running a little late, but he assured me that it wouldn't cut into our session. The photos came out fantastic and looked incredible once printed!
