Brandon did a great job with my portrait photography session. He arrived on time and was extremely professional. He was very friendly and I felt relaxed and comfortable doing the shoot. I received my photos within the quick timeframe he quoted me and they were of very high quality - it is apparent that he is knowledgable and skilled regarding the photography and edits. I highly recommend Brandon and would hire him again for an event!

My wife and I hadour wedding on July 30th 2016. Sheri came in our rehearsal dinner very professional yet friendly with a smile, warm spirit and confidence in her work. The day of the wedding she was there early ready to go, worked seamlessly alongside our videographer and took control of our 18 plus wedding party, which is not easy, and made it look flawless! She laughed, cried, took pics and we felt like she was apart of our family rather than just our photographer. She bas quick turnaround she sent us a sneak peak of our pictures within week and half and so far they are amazing! My wife and I are very satisfied with her work and cannot wait to see the rest of our wedding day. Sheri is a must hire!

I met Lisa Coehlo several years ago on the football field of the Golden Valley Cougars. She took remarkable action shots and studio portraits for the team and designed an amazing Special Edition Football Program. She volunteered her time for several years using her experience in the NFL and love for the kids. Recently she took amazing family pictures of my husband and me with my daughter and her family and my son and his family. She chose an area that had depth and color and captured everyone perfectly. I posted some on Facebook and received hundreds of responses. There is nothing Lisa could do to improve her quality of pictures.

Jessica has been taking our family photos since 2011. She has done maternity pictures, family portraits, my daughters 1st photo shoot, Christmas and holidays pics, as well as capturing my toddler run around outdoors for some shots of her being a one-year-old. Jessica is FANTASTIC!! She incorporates your ideas as well as bringing her own ideas to the table. Her ability to capture the perfect moments is an art I have rarely seen with other photographers. She is the ONLY photographer our family trusts and uses. We love Still Moments Photography!!

Jon is beyond amazing and is so talented! My husband and I loved working with him! From the first meeting we had with Jon we knew he was the photographer we wanted to work with. Our bridal party also loved Jon because he made them feel comfortable and our pictures turned out amazing! Jon was very patient and respectful throughout the process! He felt like family the entire time he was there! I cannot say enough kind words about him! If you're considering booking him I highly recommend that you do! The image quality is also gorgeous!

Parm was one of the easiest photographers I have worked with. He is very laid back but he knows exactly what he's doing behind the camera, knows what will look the best and gives you pointers along the way that helps to make the pictures come out super beautifully. I would definitely work with him again and would recommend him to everyone that is looking for wedding/engagement photoshoots.

Joanna Camero has been my families photographer for a few years already. She doesn't only capture your family and loved ones for that day or special occasion, she captures special moments! Moments that perhaps you happened to miss by a blink of an eye, but captured by her camera and her special eye for detail. Thanks for all of our family's special moments and for many more to come!

Bryan took pictures of my boyfriend and I in Knights Ferry for our anniversary. It took about 2 hours but the time seemed to go by quickly. I was impressed that Bryan wanted to go places most photographers don't and he stayed away from the cliché and over done places. He arrived at our meeting spot before we did which helped move the session along. The pictures turned out amazing and I couldn't be happier with them. Bryan kept the mood of the session fun and had us laughing the whole time. The only thing that went wrong was my boyfriends keys were hooked on him in some of our pictures, which kind of ruined them. We weren't aware of them so I wish Bryan would've told us they were there. Other than that, everything was great! I will definitely be telling people about his services and hopefully use him again in the future! :)

About

My market message will be targeting weddings and portraits. My goal is to be able to succeed in my challenges. As long as I can show my work to my clients with a smile on their face, I feel that I did a great job. I want my clients to feel comfortable and welcome in my studio. For me, I work hard, and I want my clients to remember me and spread my work to their friends. If you have a good connection with my audiences and my clients, I will fully be able to complete my successful career. This is what I feel: if you know the people and your audiences and they love your work, the end will have a good ending. I love shooting people because I want them to remember me of my style and my strength. If I say I'll do it, I will do it for sure! I am targeting weddings and portraits, and I am a people person. As far as marketing message, I would target wedding because how often do these weddings happen? It only happens once in a long time. A wedding is sign for eternity and honesty between the couple. I love shooting the clients in their environment; it helps you define who the characters are.
