    Daniell P.

    I am very pleased with our photographer, Al Ungar. He was very accommodating with my crazy, hectic and demanding schedule. He was very personable and professional. We loved the photos s. The hardest part of this experience was choosing what photos to use my daughters graduation announcement photos. We will definitely contact him again for our photographic needs.

    Working with Jessica was a great experience from the beginning of the communication to helping with the planning of the needs and through the event and the completion of the work - which all resulted in a very epic beautifully photographed evening!

    Brandi was an exceptional photographer for our wedding day! She made us feel so comfortable and at ease. She is so very talented and I knew she would capture our day perfectly. She was professional and easy to communicate with, she made sure we got all of the shots we wanted and then some! The photos she has sent are beautiful and I am so happy that we were able to work with Brandi. We would definitely work with her again!

  5. #5 Face First Photos

    (15 reviews)

    Ani A.

    Jamie is extremely professional and personable, and did an outstanding job on my business profile/website photos. Not only did he spend two hours taking multiple photos of several looks, but he then spent a substantial amount of time editing the photos (including per my requests and suggestions). The touched up photos were cleanly done, and looked very natural. Definitely money well spent. It is also worth noting that Jamie has a lovely photo studio, in a convenient location, and the resources and equipment to produce a quality product. The photo shoot was fun and productive, including because Jaime made me laugh (to elicit natural looks) and gave me appropriate guidance as to various poses and expressions. He made me feel comfortable and relaxed, and helped me accomplish my goals with the shoot. Ultimately, I am very happy with Jamie's work, and am excited to use the photos on my business website, networking sites, and referral sites. Overall, I can say that Jamie takes his work very seriously and cares about his customers (not only did he have a genuine conversation before the shoot to get to know me, but was able to build a great rapport during and after the shoot). I will not hesitate to recommend him to friends and colleagues.

    Excellent photographer! We enjoyed working with Mark every moment. He was consistent before the wedding, keeping in touch and during the day was constantly on the move and capturing our day. We couldn't have been happier with the service he provided and the photos documenting our day are incredible!! Thanks Mark!
