Richard was one of the best photographers my family, friends and I have ever worked with in over 30 years of throwing events, weddings and birthdays. He was professional, on-time, felt the vibe of the event (even dressed the part). He had the proofs ready in a timely fashion. I will plan on using him again. He also gained many referrals from my event alone as he was one of the stars. Thank you again.

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.

Yanira was an amazing photographer. She photographed my daughter's 15th birthday and captured every important moment beautifully. She was professional and was so willing to do all I had asked of her with grace and professionalism. At very late notice, I asked her to come early to photograph my daughter as she was getting ready and without hesitation she granted my request, was prompt and went right to work! She is reliable and was outstanding at capturing every detail of our party including pictures with family members and friends, flowers, decor, all the special moments I would have never thought of! She left no detail unnoticed. The pictures are of the highest quality and perfect! I would highly recommend her and I am definitely using her again! I am grateful for having the all the special moments so beautifully captured by Miss Yanira!

Sasha is not only an exceptional photographer with supreme talent, but an incredible human being with the most kind and warm spirit! She did a photoshoot for my 2 year old's birthday, covering the event as well as doing portraits for our family. From the onset, she was remarkable in every aspect…not only was she responsive and professional but also very accommodating and personable! She spent a long time on the phone with me to discuss the project. I was initially very nervous because my baby had stranger anxiety and is camera shy. Sasha put me at ease right away, sharing ideas about how she would make it a fun for my baby and ease her into it. She was very meticulous in noting all my requirements and very cooperative with all my demands. On the day of the photoshoot, she came early to help us setup and got some props and play things for my baby. I was very touched to see how loving she was with my baby and carried her around to make her feel at ease. Everyone in our family loved her and she made the whole process so seamless. Sasha was also very patient and diligent during the subsequent phase of reviews and edits. I have to admit, I'm not an easy person to please but when I saw the finished deliverables with beautiful pictures and absolutely stunning video, I was floored! Despite the low light condition indoors, her photos came our brilliant and vibrant. Best of all, she made everyone look gorgeous! :) LOVE, LOVE, LOVE her work! Sasha will be our go to person for all our photography needs going forward. I would recommend her whole-heartedly for any events as well as personal and professional photoshoots.

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.

Finiding a photographer that is affordable, professional, and has the skill to capture phenomal shots is hard to find but I reached out to Josiah for my senior portraits and he met all of the above. Josiah was very helpful at an affordable price and my senior photos could not have turned out any better. Thanks Josiah!

Verified review

Over the past several years I've had the pleasure of knowing Ceci as a friend and watching her grow as a great photographer. Last year I had Ceci take my senior pictures. Even though I'm not very photogenic, Ceci worked with me to get some amazing shots. We went to a lot of really rustic places, and a few spots that hold my favorite memories during college. The best part about my shoot was getting to hang out with the Frosts. To them, you're more than just a picture, you're a friend.
