We're very happy with the work that DeNoise Studio did for our wedding. We decided at the very last minute (like two weeks beforehand) that we wanted video of the ceremony, and once we found Albert, he hit the ground running. His promptness and efficiency came through not just during the planning process but after the wedding itself, as the turn-around on producing the video was only a few days! And the video turned out exactly the way we wanted: a very simple and beautiful portrait of a wonderful hour of our lives. Thanks so much, DeNoise!

We hired Nabor for my son's senior picture photo shoot. He was extremely personable and professional throughout the session. He had an excellent eye for outfits, poses, and lighting that translated into so many proofs that I'm still struggling to choose between them 5 days later! I would highly recommend Nabor for a portrait or headshot session - update your LinkedIn profile today with a professional portrait!

What a great choice we made hiring Thomas! We had 100+ people that all wanted individual family portraits and only 1 hour to do it all. Not only did Thomas get every picture we requested, he had time left over for fun pics. Very easy going and non-intrusive. Definitely going to hire him again for our next goat-roping!!

I had the pleasure of working with Chantelle'a company for my wedding. I scheduled with her for make-up for my bridesmaids. Chantelle was a pleasure to engage with & very accommodating! Our make-up artist was on time, very friendly, & engaged in conversation with all of the bridesmaids. I really enjoyed the fact that the make-up artist asked each girl specifically what she wanted & what she was comfortable with rather than just applying make-up however she wanted. Very pleasant. All of the girls looked beautiful & felt beautiful too :)

Andrea did an incredible job photographing my 3-day business seminar called PleasureCEO Live! She worked well within the setting, and managed to capture some precious moments that I can now use well in my marketing materials. I myself am a professional portrait photographer so my standards are quite high, and I highly recommend Andrea for your events!

I highly recommend Patrick Power! I needed a professional portrait for a legal job application, and I hadn't had one taken in over 20 years. I wanted it to be professional, but also unique. I wasn't sure how to find a photographer, so I just put out a bid on thumbtack. Patrick responded very quickly and with a very reasonable price. I had resigned myself to just getting a studio portrait with a neutral background, but Patrick had the idea of meeting at City Hall to take the photo. I was very nervous and self-conscious about the process. I don't like having my picture taken and I am not very photogenic. It helped that City Hall was full of other photographers taking pictures of brides, grooms, and other people like me, so I didn't really stand out. I had a problem and ended up being pretty late to our meeting, but Patrick was very nice about it. I was sweating like crazy in my suit, but he did a good job of putting me at ease and letting me rest and cool down for a little bit white while he staked out spots to take the photo. He talked with me casually about what I was looking for in the photo, but we also made small talk about our lives and work, so that soon I felt very comfortable with him. As a result, I looked very natural in the photo. Patrick took a lot of shots, and several of them were quite good. I needed the work done on very short notice, including a print. I made the bid on a Sunday, we did the photo shoot on Monday, and I had the print by Tuesday morning. I love the photo, and my family and friends do too. Everyone agreed that not just my appearance, but also my personality comes through in the photo. I will definitely call Patrick again if I need another photo taken in the future!

Jonathon and Anna were very professional and we enjoyed working with them. They were flexible regarding the picture sites and made wonderful suggestions on background and poses. They were very pleasant and worked with our entire family to get the best pictures taken. We did a scene at the park, railroad station and the wedding reception. At the wedding reception they brought professional portrait lighting and backdrop for all guests to take pictures...this was a wonderful treat for all our guests. We would highly recommend their services and we would like to thank them for all their hard work! They truly are a professional team that works together, and they provide the most reasonable prices on their services.

I have had the pleasure of working with Cheshire two times. Besides being an amazing photographer/artist, he is kind & so easy going. As a model I am used to doing what the photographer or client wants, however Cheshire is different & allows others to be part of the creative process. He has a very unique way of working that makes you feel relaxed - even when you are trying something new. His direction is clear and his pre & post communication is very much appreciated. Final works, finished images are always stunning and flawless. I'd have to say, to date, my favorite images have been taken by Cheshire, so much so, that his work are the lead-in images in my modeling portfolio. It is easy to provide a recommendation to someone who is not only talented but so much fun to work with.

Usman has done a fantastic job with our wedding photo-shoot in a limited time on a limited budget! We were very comfortable around him and he told us how and where to stand, so we felt at-ease. It was a natural and relaxing process, which we are grateful for. We got great portrait photos and picturesque views of us and majestic City Hall. We don't regret our photographer choice even a second and I would recommend him to everyone!

Tri was exceptionally easy to work with, talented, and generous with his time, both in shooting and in retouching. I was looking for a mix of headshots/portraits: something professional, something fun, something that would display youthful charm and something that would display maturity without being stiff. I got exactly what I was looking for, and Tri even encouraged my dad to join in and took some great father/son shots. I am doing a variety of media appearances and speaking engagements, and I feel like I have enough of a variety to choose a portrait that would work for any different kind of engagement, as well as for my social media accounts. I would highly recommend Tri to anyone looking for an incredible portrait from a photographer that will really take the time to get to know you and deliver photos that capture your personality and essence.

I hired Tiago for a large corporate event (500+ people) for one of the Big 4 Professional Services Company as a private photographer and his professionalism and work output was outstanding. Tiago is friendly, operates very seeming less and is highly capable in adapting to various circumstances. He is quick on his feet, interacts very well with people and the portrait work he created for our clients received phenomenal feedback. I highly recommend his services and would trust his work at any event. Look forward to another future opportunity to work together again. Thanks Tiago! Great Job!

Alex IS AMAZING!!! Talented, patient, soft spoken, flexible and super creative. We are not much of a photogenic people on the first place, and my husband doesn't really like to take pictures. But our photos turned out better than we hoped every single time! And we are so happy that we've created wonderful memories to look back at thanks to Alex. From lovebirds photo shoot to maternity, to baby pictures and family portraits, Alex was able to capture incredible moments and details. And he is so good with capturing kids! Those moments of sweet smiles and silly giggles that you can almost hear through the picture are priceless. We had wonderful time every time we took pictures, I don't think there was a single photo we didn't love. I can't say enough of how happy we are to have Alex as our photographer. Now with another baby coming up in super exited and can't wait to create more memories. I would highly recommend Alex! You will not be disappointed!

Sam was very professional throughout, followed up quickly on every email and fully lived up to our expectations with our family photos of 9 people, including portraits, of 4 generations ranging in age from 3 to 93. Sam went out of his way to accommodate our needs and wants, came up with excellent suggestions along the way and managed to take great photos even under demanding conditions. We were more than thrilled with his results and would not hesitate to work with Sam again at any time.

Joi did an amazing job during the whole shoot. She coordinated the makeup artist, props, and location. She was extremely professional and friendly the entire time, and she gave wonderful direction and feedback. I am in love with all of the images I received from our shoot, as she is as talented an editor as photographer. I can't wait to shoot with her again!

Michelle is the utmost professional, in every sense of the word. She did a fantastic job shooting portraits for my teenage daughter (upcoming graduation) - not only did she connected right away, she made her feel comfortable in her skin. She suggested a few spots for us to shoot, reference time of day for best lighting. She made the session feel and look effortless as well. I truly appreciated her timeliness and attention to detail, which are clearly reflected on the quality of the pictures and quickness of getting proofs. Thanks again, Michelle!
