  1. #1 Brad Zangwill Photography

    (115 reviews)

    John A.

    Brad showed up early to our holiday party for the purpose of event photography. Before the party got underway he took some incredible shots of our home that look spectacular. They are architectural magazine quality. He also took some great pictures of our dogs that make those mutts ;-) look like show dogs! As guests arrived, he took great images of my wife and I as we greeted the guests and then took their picture in front of our Christmas tree and again, these look like magazine photos.He would always show you the image from the back of his camera. Something my wife appreciated so that if she didn't like her hair or something, she could re-pose. During the event he captured great candid shots of the guests mingling, talking and dancing as well as additional posed images of groups standing or sitting together. He used a variety of lenses and equipment throughout the night. Some of the images of the crowd were taken from high up with a wider lens. Some of the outdoor images of the house he took with a long exposure capturing the lighting and the moon in the background. He is a professional, but also very personable. The guests enjoyed him. He has the ability to get people to open up and present well in front of the camera. Further, before I forget, he also professional crops, edits and color corrects all of the images. We had almost 400 images from our event and he spent far more effort than I would ever have expected perfecting the images after the fact for what we paid. He is very fairly priced and worth every penny!

  2. #2 Brett Werner Photography

    (86 reviews)

    Beverly M.

    Brett photographed our mom's 80th birthday party on the William D. Evans. He arrived on time, before the event, and got photos of the venue, decorations, etc before our guests arrival. In addition, he managed to get pictures of the food before folks attacked it! The many pictures of our family and guests were great; Brett didn't just "take pictures", he captured "moments". Also, Brett was very unobtrusive, nobody really recalled him being there and taking pictures! We have wonderful, lasting memories of the party thanks to the fantastic photo gallery that Brett took for us. You really cannot do better than him!

  4. #4 Fangting R. Photography

    (29 reviews)

    Christine O.

    This is the longest review I've ever written but so much of what impressed us was in the details so here it is! I absolutely cannot say enough wonderful things about Fan! From the moment she walked in I knew everything was going to go smoothly. My dress had a thousand hooks on it and she jumped right in to help me out and pinned the boutineer on my husband like a pro. This girl's not shy and does what she needs to do to get the shot but she balances it with such a wonderful personality. She's super friendly and personable while also keeping a close eye on details and timelines. She thinks of absolutely everything! From reminding you to bring a pretty hanger for your dress (which I ended up forgetting anyway lol) to carrying a towel to brush the sand off your feet, and even spare flip flops! She was so kind to stop at a nearby hotel to get us water to make sure we weren't dehydrated during the shoot and carried all her equipment across the beach and up and down sand dunes several times. By the end she looked exhausted but would never let us put in any work, no matter how hard I tried! Due to my dress being a tight mermaid fit she had the challenge of getting only standing photos and she did it wonderfully! We still have so many different poses and I love them all. She keeps all your Pinterest favorites on her phone and reviews it several times during the shoot to make sure she gets the poses you want. She outlines the details of everything very well so there's no surprises and don't even get me started on how quickly she responds to texts and emails! She offers so much assistance prior to the event as well. We were extremely impressed with her and will no doubt use her services again in the future. Thank you for everything Fan, you are AH-MAZING!! You seriously can't ask for a better experience or photographs! She goes above and beyond her job to make you feel special, confident, relaxed and well.. like a good friend. We now have gorgeous photos and lasting memories to document such a beautiful day in our lives.

  5. #5 Ricki Douglas Photography

    (23 reviews)

    Richard B.

    We used Ricki to shoot our family reunion of 26 people from 6 months to grandparents. She did a great job of entertaining us while clicking the camera, and of working with families whose children were less than cooperative with standing still, or smiling. She also let some of us go to a nearby beach and take family pictures there.
