We needed photos for the cover and interior of a regional magazine, which is published by the nation's largest networking entity for building and construction professionals. We had an extremely tight time frame for booking the photographer, taking the photos and receiving photo edits. Will Hartman with Desert Rose Photography was able to expedite our request at a very reasonable rate, and had no problem managing our very detailed instructions on the execution of the photo shoot. (Also, none of the publisher's representatives attended the photo shoot - Will executed everything on site based on guidance he received via telephone and email.) He arrived early to the location to scope out the best places for outdoor photography, and also worked hand-in-hand with the photo subjects to stage everyone (~25 people) in a variety of settings and locations. Needless to say, Will went above and beyond to deliver photos that were engaging, energetic, and dynamic. It was a real pleasure to work with him. We plan to use him again if the need arises, and would recommend him to anyone else looking for a professional, creative, capable photographer.

I would highly recommend using Richard Hartog photography. I have worked with many photographers before and Richard and I got along right off the bat. He was kind and funny and made me feel so comfortable. In effect, the end product turned out awesome!

Kelli was amazing! We hired her to shoot our son's senior photos. She was so flexible and accommodating from the scheduling aspect to the actual session. We did not want "traditional" style photos, so all I had to do was give her a general idea of what we were looking for and she stepped up to the challenge with gusto and creativity that exceeded our expectations. If anyone is looking for a photographer that knows what they're doing and hand holding nor directing is necessary, you'll be more than satisfied with Kelli's photography. On a side note, we just had our session and haven't gotten the photos yet, so I'll update my review regarding the quality of her product, but I have every confidence they will be spectacular!

Amina was great to work with! We were in town for a few days and only had a small window of time to get pictures taken. Amina worked with us to make sure we had plenty of time to shoot the photos and also picked a place close to our hotel. She was easy going and made my daughter feel so comfortable. The pictures turned out great and we were so happy with our experience. We highly recommend Amina Touray Photography!

I CAN'T RECOMMEND THIS PHOTOGRAPHER MORE!!! We had a huge client company Christmas party and it was imperative that we had a way to share the event via pics with our client roster. Shane Karns Photography was beyond professional, incredibly easy to work with and couldn't have been more accommodating. We had contacted several companies just to get idea in terms of how to effectively capture the event and the other three companies seemed very put off by us even having any questions before the event. I personally spoke to Shane who is the owner of this business and he was both very gracious with his ideas as well was extremely open to what our vision was, not to mention patient due to the fact that we ourselves didn't know what our vision was ;-) Shane was extremely thorough and was pretty much invisible in terms of not being in the way of our guests and yet the pics he was able to capture was truly encapsulating of the mood of the evening. Our night couldn't have gone any better which was largely due to Shane and his brilliant photography!

I will definitely book with them again and refer them to my friends and family. Until my next photo booth experience....

We had a wonderful experience working with Amanda!! We was amazing!! She came to our house to do newborn/toddler photo shoot. My baby was 7 weeks old, and Amanda was very understanding to my nursing schedule and helpful with my other two kiddos. She was very professional, showing up on time and emailing our finished images as stated. She was easy to talk to about ideas I had, as well as bringing some creative and fun ideas of her own to the shoot. I really enjoyed working with her, and plan on using her for all our photography needs. I highly recommend using her!

We recently had Chelsea shoot our engagement photos and we could not have asked for a better experience. We were looking for someone creative, personable and unique to the average wedding photography out there. Right away Chelsea made us feel comfortable and just let us be ourselves while she captured moments that were just perfect. She has an authentic “feel” to her photos and has a great eye for composition. We are so relieved knowing Chelsea is going to be photographing our wedding and we are looking forward to having photos that we will cherish for the rest of our lives.

Omg hire her for beach pics!! We just took ours at Manhattan Beach near Santa Monica (her suggestion) and they came out stunning. She is so punctual, nice, professional, and had great poses for us. We were running late from horrible traffic and she still waited as gave us our whole session time, and we got a sneak pic of pics the next day, and the rest of the pics soon after. She also helped us with poses. At least give her a call—she’s so warm and caring and a definite pro!

Mike York is a one of a kind photographer. He captured our daughter's Baptism with the most amazing photos. He is energetic, accommodating, friendly and extremely professional. He pays very close attention to detail to make sure you photos are perfect. There is no measure to his talent! We will definitely be hiring him again to capture other special family moments.

Emily has been so wonderful to capture not only our Proposal, but also our Holiday and Engagement photos as well. We love working with Emily because of her knack for capturing those beautiful candid moments as well as setting up the best pictures. Emily also designed our programs, labels, and menus for our wedding day and she has quite the eye for design! They were perfectly put together and captured the vision of our wedding theme. She is professional, personable, and a joy to work with! We would highly recommend Emily for any photography or design need you might have.
