Loved working with Shane and his team. He made me feel very comfortable in my first Pole Fitness photo shoot. The images also came out amazingly. Enjoyed being able to shoot against two backgrounds (Black and white).

Naomi White is an extraordinary photographer! She is very professional, has a great, artistically talented eye, is fun with a calming demeanor, and personable. My husband and I felt completely at ease with her clicking away pictures of our family. Both of us are somewhat shy/nervous about being in front of a camera, but her professionalism and personality made it easy to be subjects with her as the observer. We were over the moon with how wonderfully natural and special Mrs. White's photographs came out. They captured the magic of our daughter, the day, and our little family. Everyone I have shared her photos of us with just loves them. She has great attention to detail, and highlighted small, intimate moments between my daughter and my husband and me that look postcard worthy! We just loved working with her and the results of our session. If 5 out of 5 stars is the best, she's a 10!!

Wow! Lydia was a delight to work with. She was awesome start to finish; she answered all of my pre-wedding shoot questions (the level of communication throughout the entire process - before, after, and during - was excellent), gave us her full attention the day of and really helped direct our small wedding group since we are all pretty camera shy...and the photographs she delivered were beautiful! There photos were vivid, and stunning, there were some cool black and white ones, and a good blend of artistic and candid shots and I felt like she captured the 'real us'. It was so easy to connect with her, which is so important in getting good photos. And - just trust her - there were several times where I thought to myself, "you want me to do what?!" - and then when I saw the final result, those were some of my favorite shots!

She was fantastic to work with! I was running a little late but she didn't mind and was very accommodating. Her studio was a great place to shoot - she had black and white backgrounds as well as a cool "industrial" backdrop on site. She was a great communicator and got my photos to me quickly after the shoot! Would definitely work with here again.

Corey was brilliant from start to finish. You have to consider that the client (me) was in another country for the whole time we discussed plans and ideas. Add to that Corey flying back to the US the day before our shoot and overall he did amazingly and produced some incredible photos for me and my girlfriend. Oh and there was the bit where I changed our outfits a few days before the shoot, from black and white to red and blue! But he seemed to take that in his stride and made everything work for us. Her and I were a little shy, a little awkward to start, but Corey helped so much to relax us, cracking the occasional joke and talking to us throughout the shoot. I did imagine there would be more instruction from Corey re. how and where to stand/pose. But looking back I think that would've made the shots look forced, so I totally appreciate his expertise on that. We got over 600 photos, which we absolutely love! Being in a long-distance relationship I can't say how important and valuable pictures of us being together are. And when they're taken professionally, it just makes them even more special. Thank you Corey!!

I and my extended family have used Michael for children and family shoots as well as weddings for 30 years. His work is incomparable. The walls of our homes are art galleries of his black and white images, not only of our kids and our events but of images from his overseas travels that we have purchased and framed. He is unobtrusive, "invisible" as my brother-in-law said the other day, when he shoots a wedding. He is magical with kids and works with them until he gets compelling non-posed natural images. In the process, he makes the parents feel as though he has never had better subjects than their children. The shoot itself becomes a special memory, and the outcome - literally dozens of classics each and every time - a special gift. I love being surrounded by his work in my home.

i got married on a budget but, my wife & i were firm on one thing: we wanted Don Lewis to document the event. Don worked w/ us on the price & arrived early. he blended in w/ the party & delivered some of the most heart warming images of our families and friends having a great time. the prints were stunning, Don printed them himself. all shot on film - black & white, as we requested. thank you for capturing our special day w/ such skilled finesse.

Shannon did a photo shoot for my husband who is running for re-election for public office. Working with her was such a wonderful experience that I referred her to several of my friends, one of which scheduled a portrait session with her for her online dating profile. She went from almost no emails with her old photos to an overflowing inbox! The photos were really beautiful and unique. Another friend of mine used her for family portraits and was so pleased with the results that she told Shannon that from this point forward, she was the official "family photographer". When I accompanied my husband on his photo shoots (he had two different days/set-ups), I quickly realized that Shannon had an innate ability to make people feel comfortable behind the camera. Shannon's personality makes you feel so at ease, that you almost forget your getting your pictures taken. The sessions, surprisingly, were actually a lot of fun, and really put my husband at ease. In the past, my husband has always been a bit awkward in posed photos, but Shannon's pictures captured his humor, his strength and his integrity. We were so pleased with the whole session that at the end of the last shoot, I went to kiss my husband for a job well done and Shannon started snapping away. The whole thing became really playful and we ended up with some lovely and hilarious photos of him sweeping me off my feet in a chamber that is usually only used for, let's say, "government business". It is important to know that Shannon doesn't do traditional "portraits". You will not get a photo shoot with everybody in jeans and white shirts smiling at the camera on some sunstruck beach. Shannon captures those natural moments between the self-conscious poses, which make the photos so much more memorable and engaging. Finally, the business end of things went very smoothly too. She was very responsive and professional. I cannot recommend Shannon enough. If we win this election, I'm sure Shannon's photos will have played a role in this victory:)

We did a photo shoot for our band White Ghost with Andy and the experience was awesome!!! He is a complete professional and he knows how to make you feel completely at ease and produce amazing results! We did shots at the bar with different outfits/drink props and the color palate we ended up with was stunning! We also sat on a couch with a white wall behind us and Andy had the idea to cut all the lights and just rely on the flash and it really captures the "White Ghost" atmosphere/theme. I would highly recommend him to anyone who's serious about their product and he's the man for the job!!! Thanks again Andy!

We had a wonderful experience with Macrae. She is super nice, and a really talented photographer. She took us to a beautiful park, and took the most fabulous senior pictures of our daughter. I love both the Black and white photos, and the color photos are so beautiful and vibrant. I would definitely use her again!

I've known Alex for years and when he told me he was starting a photography company I knew it would be a successful one. Alex has always had an eye for detail and it shows in his work. He's one of the funniest guys I know and he's amazing with kids. I just recently worked with Alex for my DJ head shots. Here is a black-and-white that came out just perfect. Also submitted is a photo from a family event that I attended. After a few minutes of talking with Alex you will be at ease knowing you have picked the right professional to photograph your next event.

Kiley is friendly and makes the picture taking process easy, relaxed, and fun. She helped us capture some family photos and baby bump shots recently. She recommended a beautiful location outdoors with great natural lighting. The pictures turned out amazing! She played with lighting and black and white and all came out excellent. She is very professional and kept us posted during the editing process which took under a week! I will definitely request her for future shoots and recommend her to anyone looking for reliable customer service and quality pictures to capture family milestones. But check out her portfolio clearly her talent far exceeds family shoots she also does marketing, commercial and entertainment shoots! Thanks again Kiley!

Ken shot our wedding on May 17, 2014. The pictures are amazing! He gave me a disc with almost 600 pictures that aren't protected so that I can do with them what I like and print from the disc to different type materials like canvas, rock, stone, etc. I told him that I want some traditional color photos but that I love sepia tones, black and white and more artistic type photos. OMG did he do great with this! There is even a shot of my new husband and I's hand doing the rings that I have no idea how he got as I didn't even see him and it is a serious close up. His prices are phenomenal. I would HIGHLY recommend using Ken as a photographer for your events.. Thank You again Ken.. Love, Billie and Aaron
