  4. #4 Little Darling Photo

    (3 reviews)

    Desiree O.

    Tatiana at Little Darling Photo was great to work with. All of my relatives were saying how much they enjoyed the experience, even before we received our beautiful photos. I was anxious about getting our large group gathered and getting some great photos during the sunset, but Tatiana was clearly a pro! She worked with ease and my concerns quickly melted away as she effortlessly took photos of us in all different groupings in several different poses all over the beach. She easily captured all the poses & groupings we had in mind, and many more! Tatiana's turnover was the quickest I've ever experienced from a photographer! We had the finished photos before some of my visiting relatives even made it home! I am so happy with how the pictures turned out. I was hoping to get at least one good picture of the entire group (in my experience, even that's hard to do!), but we ended up with several. How she did it, I'll never know, but I am so happy to have so many great photos of the family. All the ladies are happy with how they look in the pictures (also hard to do!), and the buttery sunset Tatiana captured in our photos is so dreamy. I am so glad I chose to book with Little Darling Photo, and I am already trying to get my other side of the family to visit so we can get some gorgeous beach photos with all of them too!

  5. #5 Askar Media

    (6 reviews)

    Al I.

    I really liked Ahmad. He came to my office 15 minutes (ahead of schedule) to take a portrait photo of me. What was unique about was taking the time with me as to what were my specific needs. He took about 30 photos using different angles and lightening. After the photo shoot I picked several to be touched up. What's amazing when he used photo shop, it's like a complete makeover. Definitely recommend him to any one. I had many compliments.

  7. #7 Eagle Visions Photography

    (6 reviews)

    Linda M.

    Mr. Lovell, (Craig) made this photograpy experience for me wonderful all the way around. He took all the time I needed to get fantastic shots, he made me feel extremely comfortable and at ease. He is extremely professional yet also warm and friendly which made the whole experience a day of adventure for me. I have never had boudoir photos taken before, but Mr. Lovell put me completely at ease and had me relaxed and laughing. The pictures came out absolutley beautiful and I couldn't be happier. Something I would definitley do again should the opportunity arise, and something I would encourage every woman to do at least once in her life! thank you very much Mr. Lovell.!! Linda
