Doug is an awesome Photographer, I hired Doug for our wedding Photography and he worked with us on our Engagement Photos so far; and they turned out great! Everyone just loves them! He was very fun and easy to work with. This was new to my Fiance and I and we aren't very Photo friendly, but Doug got right in there and helped us, told us a joke, got us to laugh and totally made it look natural and our pictures came out great! We cant wait until he does the Photography for our Wedding day, we know they will be awesome, and we know everyone will just adore him! Thanks again Doug... :-) I will definitely hire Doug again for any Photography that i need in the future, and i would definitely recommend him to anybody who needs Photography! Cheers.

I just got back our engagement photos and we are ecstatic! First off Allan was super friendly and awesome to work with, we planned something last minute and he was super cool about our new location choice and he came prepared and researched. My fiance was pretty uncomfortable with the idea of photos because he doesn't like doing this kind of stuff but Allan was super personable and made us laugh which really made the process effortless and fun! Not to mention the end result is amazing. The photos are extremely professional amd clear. We are very happy with the photos and would recommend Allan to anyone. Thanks so much!

Nic came ahead of time on the day of the event. He coordinated well with the photographer. We hired him for the raw footage of the event and highlights video. He was very responsive over email, and provided raw footage of the event within a week. Highlight video contained well selected scenes.

Looking for a wedding photographer on line, my fiancé and I were drawn to the pictures taken by Lorinda Keller, the owner of 831images. Amazingly, she was available on our wedding day. All of her reviews raved her praises. All the reviews were spot on, Lorinda more than exceeded our high expectations. Due to prior changes in our wedding day schedule Lorinda accommodated us by splitting our day into two sessions so that we could get all the photo coverage we wanted but still stay within our budget. This allowed us to have photos of our ceremony and with our guests. We did not have to disappear and leave our guest to get our couple photos. Lorinda made a special trip to return later so that we could do our couple shots after our guests had left and during the ideal sunset lighting. Getting everything we wanted within our limited budget was an exceptional gift. Lorinda also surprised us with returning with printed pictures from the ceremony. She even presented us with a beautifully framed photo capturing our happy moment. Everyone was so shocked that she had a chance to do all of this for us. She was even professionally prompt on an extreme high traffic and no parking day in Carmel. From the second we met Lorinda we felt at ease. Her delightful personality was a joy to be around. My groom and I, were having a small intimate wedding due to our shyness about being the center of attention. We were expecting that having our wedding photos taken was something we would have to suffer through. Boy were we wrong. After two hours of taking photos on the beach we could not stop talking about how much fun we had with Lorinda. She made the experience an unexpectedly enjoyable time that we will always treasure. Lorinda had an amazing ability to give her subjects directions while still keeping a light hearted vibe to achieve the premium result. Not only did Lorinda put us and our guests at ease but she also had great energy around our dogs. Our two Belgian Malinois are very suspicious of new people, especially if they are holding objects like a camera. In order to have them part of our ceremony we thought we would have to put up with lots of barking. Lorinda was so terrific with our dogs that they never barked at her. She was also very gracious about maneuvering around the guest dogs in attendance. She went above and beyond in getting special shots with the dogs that lived at the venue for a special gift for us to give the home owners. It takes an exceptional talent for a stranger to put dogs at ease in order to take their photo. We highly recommend Lorinda for shots of your furry friends, in addition to all your professional photo needs. If you want to have fun while getting direction so you get the most flattering, unique and artistic photos then call Lorinda.

Mike did a great job capturing my proposal to my girlfriend. I wanted to propose during sunset in Carmel somewhere with view of the ocean, but wasn't too familiar with the area. Mike offered to scope out a couple spots and we decided on a very private area with a spectacular view. He was very easy to work with and extremely quick to respond to my emails. Since it was a surprise, Mike and his wife arrived early to stake out the spot and looked like any other couple at the beach taking photos. They captured every moment of my proposal and took a few shots afterwards (she said yes!). I got the pictures the next day and they turned out great! So happy with the experience, and would highly recommend Mike.

We had Swaraj to photograph our daughters First birthday. He did an amazing job on that. This was my experience with Swaraj. - Booking him for the event was an easy process. Finding best photographers at the rate he provides is tough. - On the day of the event, he came 15-20 mins before start of the event and setup all his items to capture the moments. He setup all his light fixtures to make sure lights are adjusted properly - Our event lasted couple of hours. He was so patient with all our guests and took lot of photos. - He stayed till the end of the event , suggested lot of family poses and captured those. - When comes to processing, it was so quick and when we got the album from him, we were so happy to see the outcome of those photos. So glad we had made the right choice by choosing him to capture our daughters special moments. Thanks Swaraj for the memories. I would definitely hire him again for all my upcoming events. I would highly recommend him for any events.

And Forever More was an absolute pleasure to work with! Paulina and Eric made my husband and I feel so comfortable in front of the camera during our engagement shoot and on our wedding day. The final photos are STUNNING. They went above and beyond to provide us with 4x6 prints of every single photo in both color and black and white, as well as a thumb drive of all the files, AND a few blown up prints of their favorite shots, AND an album of more larger prints! Seriously, who does that?? They even shot our rehearsal dinner for us, and it was so amazing to have candid shots of that very intimate, special night with our closest family and friends. We could not be happier with what we received from And Forever More. They are both incredibly sweet and easy to work with, and will work with any ideas and suggestions you send their way. On the wedding day, we hardly noticed them around, but they captured every moment. We received our photos in a timely manner, and were blown away at the quality of shots. All in all, if you choose And Forever More for any photography needs, you won't be disappointed! Love you Paulina and Eric!! <33

I recently had the pleasure of meeting Amanda and having her take some pictures of me. I typically do not like having my picture taken, but she created an environment in which I felt comfortable and relaxed. She has a very pleasant personality and the quality of her photography left me feeling extremely satisfied with the overall experience.

I cant say enough about Nazanin and her talented eye as a photographer. She truly is an artist. I had my pregnancy and baby shower photo shoot with her and I felt so comfortable with her. I was so happy with my photos and made me confident to ask her for taking pictures of my newborn. She perfectly captured amazing pictures of my baby and made those moment unforgettable for us. I wish she could stay in Tucson and captures all the special moments of my family!

Monique is everything my fiancé and I looked for to take our engagement photos. Monique was flexible, organized, detail-oreientated and a joy to work with. Monique has a keen eye and the natural ability to create a memory in every environment. We chose the location of a meadow with yellow flowers and the pictures came out magical and unique.

Jim is passionate about photography and very good at what he does. He is always looking for ways to perfect his art form. He loves to be around people and interact with different individuals in a variety of settings. He has worked with families, teens, and kids outside of taking photography which allows him to be able to grab the attention of a kid or teen in order to capture them at their best.

Alanna is so friendly! She is professional, punctual, has great communication, and can put anyone at ease (considering being in front of a camera can be nerve racking). My first experiences with her were in a collaboration set, working together on fashion/editoral shoots (I am a hairstylist). After that, I reached out to her for wedding photography, family members have used her for family pictures, and I even recommended her to do the professional headshots for a friend's tech company. Her range is amazing, and the quality of her work does not waiver despite working on different projects. Highly recommend! Alanna is awesome.

Wayne was great! He met us on a Saturday. Gave us a timeline and finished even before his estimate. We are very happy we had him restore this very old family photograph from the 1920's that was damaged. Definitely recommend!

What can I say except that Shannon is a hidden treasure that we found on Thumbtack! Apart from her professionalism, punctuality, and endless patience with our DIY wedding throughout the process, we cannot commend her enough for her energy and passion. She squeezed in an engagement shoot as we were traveling from the midwest to our hometown in the bay area and the pictures turned out amazing! Trust that if you book Shannon, you will get the chance to have wonderful engagement/wedding pictures, but also get to know a lovely and kindhearted person that can work in any environment.

After speaking with a few local photographers, Chris not only had the cleanest/well working website but he also left the best impression over the phone. Very personable and easy to communicate with. He was also able to fit me in the next day (Friday) to do my business portraits. Doing a photo shoot like this was way out of my comfort zone however, Chris made it fun and easy. Not only that but he had the proofs for me to review within a few hours of the end of our session. Not to my surprise the quality of the pictures, lighting and setting were top notch. I will recommend GoodEye Photogrpahy whenever possible and will continue to work with Chris moving forward. 5 stars and nothing less
