We have had the pleasure of dealing with Joe for numerous personal as well as business photo shoots. Every personal shoot we have done has been roughly an hour and the professional shoots have varied based on requirement (event coverage). The locations are always based on our personal preference to which he has been more than happy to accommodate to. If we dont know what we want, hes been great about suggesting locations to obtain the best scenery and overall feel to suit our needs. Having dealt with around 5 or 6 previous photographers, I have to say that Joe is the only one that I would recommend. He was highly professional, courteous, offered extremely quick turnaround, and an end product that I have always been extremely happy with. I have to say we were impressed when he pulled out his iPad and opened a reference book to help us with different poses. He explained to us what the concept was behind each pose and which ones were more popular or common and which ones were less seen. He excels at capturing the emotion of the shoot rather than just the image itself. It becomes apparent what I mean when you see portraits that feel forced and bland, like no one wanted to be there. We always have fun during our shoots and I believe it really reflects in the end result. All summed up, Id definitely recommend Joe Chung Photography if you ever photography services. He really goes above and beyond to ensure your satisfaction with all of the pictures he provides. He is professional, courteous, and offers a high quality product that I have always been satisfied with. If you need photography, you need a great photographer, and thats exactly what he is.
Jami was AWESOME! She did both my photography and videography on such short notice. She was great with everyone! All my guest loved her! She got the most important events throughout our wedding. She's very good at her work and I highly recommend her. =)
Very professional, crisp, clear photography. Enjoyed the photography experience with Joshua. Will definitely use him again.
Amina was wonderful to work with. I am an attorney and needed headshots as well as website and social media photos, but wanted something different than the typical business photos. She worked well with the ideas I had in mind and offered suggestions based on my vision and her own personal experiences. As a former model, Amina was also helpful and clear in demonstrating poses and facial expressions, which was good for me since I do not get photographed regularly. If you are a legal or other business professional and want to step out of the box, I highly recommend putting your trust in Amina Touray Photography. Your vision will come to life.
Absolutely amazing people and amazing work! We will definitely be working with them for all our other video and photography work!
Haldane Photography is one of the best service and priced photography experiences I have ever had. Haldane was really nice the first time I talked to him. He was extremely helpful and answered any questions I had about the entire process. His studio was clean and nice. Haldane made me feel extremely comfortable around him and in front of the camera. I had a great experience and would definitely recommend him to everyone!
Leslie was awesome and so professional! Her photography skills are fantastic and it was a pleasure working with her! She would be a terrific asset to your event.
Joe took a daunting task and turned it into a pleasurable, stress-free process. I got amazing looking photos! I needed professional photos of myself for a website. I know next to nothing about photography. I didn't even have an idea for what I wanted the photos to look like. But Joe helped with the entire process, from ideation, to the clothes, hair, and makeup. All I had to do was show up with a pile of my clothes and let him work his magic. He has a keen eye for posing, lighting, editing, and the whole package! I ended up with 3 stunning editorial photos—works of art, really.
Lensology Photography was terrific to work with. They were extremely professional during our University of New Hampshire alumni event and captured phenomenal photos of the venue. The atmosphere and energy of the crowd and space really came alive in their photography. I highly recommend them for any photography needs you have.
Roxana did our wedding and engagement photos. She is very creative and enthusiastic about what she does. It become obvious immediately that for her photography is an art. We had a lot of fun and enjoyed working with her. I would definitely recommend her to anyone that is looking for something fresh.
Daniel Lennox greets you and interacts with you with such gratitude. You feel comfortable really quick if not immediately. Every shot he takes is part of his exceptional work as he speaks to you and is clever in getting a particular facial expression from you. His work is professional, to say the least. It is clearly evident that he knows photography like a close friend. I most definitely recommend him for your next photo shoot!
Hemali created such beautiful art work for not only the board members of Heaven's Door Cancer Foundation but personal cancer diva photo shoots. She truly captures the essence of our foundation, providing us with so many wonderful images. Thanks again for providing a first class service!
I'd give my highest recommendation to hiring Sue Hudelson for your freelance photography needs. I was fortunate to hire Sue for the past three years for HAWAII Magazine's Island Hopping Maui front of the book section. Sue was always ready for any photo adventure! The photo assignments were always diverse and included landscape, hiking, portraits, food, shopping and lifestyle. She always provided many photo options to choose from and she was able to turn around assignments on time. I was truly blown away with all of the options I received for our July/August 2015 issue. Sue captured the lost of art of traditional Hawaiian Kapa making and provided so many wonderful visuals of Kapa making instruments, finished patterns and portraits of the Kapa makers. Sue was also instrumental in quickly turning around portraits of the Cultural Advisors for the Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resorts, Sheraton Maui and Westin Maui Resort and Spa. On a recent trip to Maui, I received a lot of complements from the Director of Public Relations Sumithra Balraj from the Westin Maui Resort and Spa. She raved about Sue's photography abilities to setup portraits on the resort properties with ease and was pleased with the results. I miss working with her and anyone that has the pleasure of working with her will get to see her energetic personality, passion for photography and her true spirit of Aloha.

I work with Doug all the time cos he's the best! Great eye for the visuals! Whether it's still photography or full length videos for us he always delivers the goods. & he's a great bloke!
I could never thank Michael enough for all the thought, prep time, and his kind, yet professional attitude throughout my shoot. Not only did he take the time to make me feel comfortable and relaxed, he makes sure to research and understand the needs of his clients, and works to get everything just right. He provides excellent direction, and sees the art in all situations. He is also fabulous at editing photos, which an amazing skill that many photographers do not provide. His talent far surpasses what other photographers provide and I would/will be using him again for any of my other photography needs and projects. When you choose Michael, you are ONE and DONE! The Best!
I am incredibly impressed with the talent and professionalism of Johanna Siegmann. Her photographs are nothing short of brilliant. I've worked with her on numerous occasions and each time she delivers beyond my expectation. Her photoshop skills are what I call her magic. She did a shoot for a film poster for me with Ed Asner. She was fast, efficient, pleasant and delivered an awesome shot. She then did a composite photo of Jean Smart that blew me away. She has an extraordinary eye. Her portraiture is like fine art. Her on set photography is spot on. In my experience, Johanna Siegmann will bring inspiration to your photographic needs.
RGR photography captured our first gig and all we can say is - Bob rocks!! The quality of his work is excellent, he has a great eye for composition and and instinctively captures the ultimate memorable moments. And on top of all that, he's fun and professional.

Professional quality, dedicated and dependable! I had the pleasure of working with Verlan of VG3 Photography for a clients 40th birthday party. VG3 captured all the guests in a modern photo booth set-up and compiled a memorable, stylish DVD that chronicled many moments of the clients life. I highly recommend VG3 Photography!
Molly has an artistic eye and is a pleasure to work with. She captures both natural and extraordinary moments, finding beautiful settings and backdrops to make your photographs really stand-out. Molly works well with people of all ages, creating a relaxed atmosphere. She took our family Christmas card this year and also photographed our daughter's first Birthday party. She edits and turns-around photos quickly. I would highly recommend Molly for any occasion that calls for fine photography!
Rogue Art was an easy choise for our wedding day photos. I met with Amy and Brian and immediately they sold me with a welcoming gift bag and sample photo books that displayed their non-traditional photographs, which was exactly what we were in for! I was so impressed with their presentation and meeting with me 1:1 as a team. They were on time, responsive and I had to give little direction leading up to and day of. They brought our the few ideas we had to life and we trusted them with the rest. My family was equally impressed. I never had to run to find them to take a photo, because they were right there with every shot. I barely knew they were there even though they captured the whole day and night! Love, love, love Rogue Art!
