My wife, Teresa, and I were fortunate enough to have Richard Hartog as our wedding photographer. Richard was nothing other than professional, endearing, and added a sense of humor to our amazing day. Richard has an eye for detail and had the ability to see our wedding experience the way we envisioned it. At the church, he captured the ceremony beautifully while remaining stealth and considerate of the event. He arrived at the hotel early that day to take shots of the bride and bridal party getting ready and stayed until the last guest had left the reception late that evening. We received the photo package within only a few short days and they were perfect. Richard took well over 500 photos for us capturing every detail of the entire day. Even months after the wedding, Richard still keeps in contact with us to see how we're doing and how married life is treating us. We will recommend Richard Hartog to anyone who is looking for an amazing photographer!

Steve was an awesome wedding DJ!! He was always available via phone, email, etc and really took to time to make sure our wedding was thoroughly planned. He even took a significant amount of time helping me troubleshoot my wedding slideshow! I didn't have a wedding coordinator but didn't need one because he kept us on track and continuously notified is about upcoming events throughout the night. Oh yeah, and great music selection! Thank you so much, Steve!!

Joshua gave me exactly the headshot I was looking for. He really listened to me, and he was great at getting a good "look" from me. I love that I had so many shots to choose from. Technically everything was excellent--lighting, retouching, etc. Also Josh's communication skills were really good. We had to go back and forth a bit for scheduling, but he always got back to me right away and he was really flexible. I also thought the cost was very reasonable. I would recommend Josh to anyone looking for photography of any kind--wedding, product, portrait, whatever.

Grant was fantastic to work with. I was in a bit of a pinch finding a photographer for a wedding proposal. He was wonderful to work with and very accommodating to my last minute request. Highly recommend.

There are a lot of photographers in the wedding industry. Sometimes it seems like everyone with a digital camera is suddenly in business. Milla is different. She is an artist. Trained, tried, and true. When you work with her you getting photographs by some one who truly understands how to craft images that capture fleeting moments. Milla has studied photography for more years than she would probably admit to and has worked for some amazing places and people! Ask her about it!! She listens to you, understands her art, and truly wants to give you the images you will cherish for a lifetime. I love working with Milla...always such a pleasure.

Packages prices are very affordable comparing to other photographers in my city. Samer showed up 15 minutes before time and was very patient and didn't rush me to take the photos and go.

We hired JP'S for wedding pictures. The photographer is very friendly and kind. I am happy with the first half of the pictures, not the rest. I worked with professional photographers before. When we took pictures outdoors, they would move around a lot to take pictures from different ankles. But with JP'S, because of his lack of mobility (or whatever other reasons), some pictures are just not as nice as I hoped. To be honest, some pictures turned out nice. We wore two different type of outfits on that day. First one turned out nice, not the one in wedding dress. The photographer offered to fix some of the pictures, but we decided not to bother. We spent $500 for an hour of shooting pictures. I want to put it here, may use as reference for anyone who is looking to hire a photographer. I won't work with this one again.

I found Natalie on Thumbtack. I was looking for an affordable but professional photographer for my wedding day and that's exactly what I got. I am so glad that I chose her. She was so sweet and professional. She did a consultation with us before the wedding and we went through a list of moments and things that I wanted her to capture specifically. I am very happy with the end result. The pictures came out beautifully. I especially like the way that she ushers the effect of natural sunlight. She did a beautiful job capturing our special day! I would definitely recommend Natalie!

Sonia was great! She has a price that can't be beat, but that's only part of the reason I chose her. The main reason I chose Sonia was because I'm a fan of her work. After looking at dozens of photographers' work, I preferred Sonia's style the best. She did an amazing job for my head shots. She's also well prepared and punctual. She got my files to me shortly after our session, including the edits, so I could use them right away. Now I'm going to set up a session for her to take pictures of my dog and I.

It has only been such a short time from our wedding and we are still so in awe of the work Doug did. He recommended two photographers for our wedding and even though I didn't think it was very big and necessary, I'm so glad I did! He and Bryan were able to be at different locations and have different views and it was perfect! They were easy to get along with, funny, personable and everyone loved them. The pictures came out absolutely incredible and the turnaround time to completion was impressive. They captured all of our requests plus things we wouldn't have thought of. You can never have a "do-over" for wedding pictures and I am so grateful to Doug and Bryan for the impeccable job they did. I would highly, HIGHLY recommend them to anyone for any photography needs!

Roxana was the photographer for our engagement/family pictures and for our wedding. She was so fantastic to work with! She is very friendly and worked great with my daughters. She captured candid moments of my family with beautiful photographic composition. For my wedding, she took tons of pictures, capturing all our important moments. We have a wonderful collection of memories thanks to Roxana and we will be happy to work with her again!

Juan and his wife were absolutely amazing to work with. We didn't really know what to expect, especially during our complimentary engagement session, but Juan made us feel at ease and he is a master of lighting! On our wedding day, Juan and his wife were so calm and professional - we were so happy to have them with us! I highly recommend Juan for all of your wedding photography needs, he is truly a gem.

James did an amazing job capturing the natural flow throughout our whole wedding weekend. I never imagined I could look so good just standing around with friends and family! He has an incredible talent for catching you when you least expect it and you end up looking the best you ever could. His calming presence, and ability to direct a large overbearing family makes you feel at ease. Our wedding pictures are something I will treasure for the rest of my life! Pick James for your photograher, and I promise you will not be disappointed.

I have worked with Carlye several times over the past three years. Every time and with every project Carlye delivers beautiful pictures and videos. Carlye is professional, easy to work with, and extremely creative. What is most surprising is the speed in which she delivers a finished project. Most photographers and Video-ographers take weeks to even let you take a peek at your project. Carlye is quicker than anyone I have ever worked with, with no compromise to the finished project. You can ask Carlye to edit her work, for example change music, she does it with ease. I would highly recommend Carlye Ann Productions for any event, wedding or project you may have.

This person was so amazing. She took the best video of my wife and i’s wedding day! Not only was the footage great, but she was extremely professional and a pleasure to be around. My wife loved her personality, which made it very easy to act natural when someone is filming them. She got videos of things that I didn’t even get to experience myself as the groom, so watching back again was like a new experience in itself. Her prices are great for the amazing quality I received. I would recommend her for any event, photo and video. We hired her for video, but she took better pictures than the photographer we hired. Thank you Danyell! 5 stars all the way.

I could not have been happier with my experience with Matthew. He was incredible and not only did he take beautiful pictures, he made my husband and I comfortable and not camera shy through both our save the date and wedding photos. I told Matthew how I wanted my save the date photos to look like and he knew exactly where to go and chose the perfect location. We will definitely be using Matthew again in the future for other photo sessions.

Linda was my wedding and bridal shower photographer. I couldn't not ask for a better person. She was honest trustworthy and full of life. She helped me calm my nerves and let me take out my anger when needed :) She was in my opinion the best I've ever had. I would let anyone to hire her and feel like they can leave in her hand to have amazing pictures. Can't wait to hire her again for any other event we have :)

My husband and I never had official engagement or wedding photos done, so she provided us with a great makeshift engagement shoot. Super friendly to work with. We loved the finished product!
