I highly recommend Walt Jedziniak for a number of reasons:  Initially, I requested a FEMALE photographer to do a book of boudoir photos as a gift to my husband. But when I compared Walt’s gallery of photos to the other photographers, it was a no-brainer for me.  The quality and beauty of his pictures far surpassed the others.  This was not a close call.  He always responded to my questions promptly and thoroughly. When I conveyed my apprehensions about using a male photographer, he encouraged me to bring friends to the session if that would make me more comfortable. While I didn’t take him up on that, it did make me so much more comfortable about him that he’d readily offered it as an option. It turns out my initial fears and concerns were unfounded.  Walt is a consummate professional (a husband and father) who showed nothing but respect for me and a determination to give me the spectacular result I wanted for my husband – despite what I perceive as my physical “flaws”.  He’s a bit of a magician when it comes to correcting those “problem” areas.  And if you already know how you want to pose, great!  He’s open to following your lead.  If you don’t have a clue and would rather be guided (like me), that’s great too! You’ll quickly learn that he has a wealth of sexy, but easy to pull off pose suggestions – and props – to make you feel good about yourself; to make the session comfortable, successful. . .and even fun!   I so appreciated how efficient and thorough he was from beginning to end.  Communicating quickly, clearly and in a friendly manner; the assistance he gave me as I/ we planned what I’d wear and what props I’d use; making me feel totally comfortable during the photo shoot; getting the proofs to me quickly; being totally open about any changes I wanted to make; the airbrushing skills; the airbrushing skills; and did I mention the airbrushing skills?  And making sure that the airbrushing didn’t make me look “fake”.  It was still really me – only way better; giving me straightforward feedback when I asked for it during the photo selection process; and a shining expertise when it came time to deciding the order of the 20-22 photos in the book. That, in itself, is an art. In a short time, when the book arrived in the mail, I was SO happy with its beauty and quality.  It is, without question, the most special gift I’ve given my husband (and myself really) and the process could not have been more enjoyable.  That, I attribute to Walt.  I write this review with infinite enthusiasm and appreciation. .

Mr. Degroat came to our home to take a family portrait. He was professional and polite. He promised that the photographs would be sent to us in a few days and they were. We were extremely happy with his excellent work. In fact, he sent us so many wonderful options, we're still trying to decide which photographs to select. Finally, we've already praised his work in another forum and we'll strongly encourage our friends to work with Mr. Degroat in the future.

We had a last minute wedding - 3 weeks from announcement to event! Marc was so responsive, and then so diligent in his follow up when things were crazy for us. BUT, with a photographer what is most important is the experience and the results...the night of the wedding he and his assistant just blended in (in fact when I mentioned the photos recently, someone said, "there was a photographer?") the photos are perfect...they captured so many moments and are absolutely beautiful - great lighting, great angles. We could not be more pleased!

David was so pleasant and easy to work with. He photographed my mom's 85th birthday bash at my brother's home. He showed up early to get a lay of the land, asked about key people we wanted him to pay particular attention to, and let us know when the light outside was optimal for a family portrait. All while being relaxed and fitting right in, making everyone feel comfortable...even my dog! Very happy with the finished product - both candid and portrait shots. Highly recommend!

Everything went well from beginning to end. Bill Morgan went way beyond expectations. He was professional and prompt. He scouted the environment and worked with the lighting and had planned out backdrops that enhanced the portraits. He also asked about specific photos that we may have desired such as groupings of friends, family, etc.Bill went out of his way to accommodate us. He also did not stick to a time limit. His goal was to obtain interesting candid shots during gatherings, dancing or speeches, etc. We now have beautiful lasting memories of our joyful celebration thanks to Bill's fine work. We highly recommend Bill Morgan Media.

I hired Kasey of KLH Photography to do a photo shoot for me for a portrait I'd use in business and for my business cards. I didn't want to do a typical head shot and had a pose in mind. Kasey came up with a couple of different poses and shot all the different ones so we could compare the best one. I was extremely happy with the results and with Kasey's ideas. I certainly would recommend KLH Photography to anyone looking to upgrade their image and looking for a new look! Joe Kapell

I found Tom French Photography online when looking for a photographer for our wedding. I needed something within my budget and I liked that he would charge by the hour. He was very responsive to emails and phone calls leading up to the day, and on the day he was punctual, polite, and encouraging. He was very patient with our crazy family and even spent a little extra time to make sure he got all the shots we wanted. In addition, we got the pictures back incredibly fast, within 2 weeks of the day! I have friends who sent 5 times as much and had to wait months for their pictures. when we did get the pictures, the quality was amazing. He did a combo of black and white and color photos He is a true professional and very talented. I would highly recommend Tom for any event!

Ms. Capillo while doing a photo shoot under her direction put me at ease from start to finish. Her use of words while giving direction was key for how my photos turned out. Elises eye for the use of background, lighting. Body language, facial expressions and the right clothing believe it or not played a critical role in the creation of the moment. Looking at my photos I couldn't even believe it was me I was looking at. My business and career benefitted greatly in the use of my photos in brochures, business cards, website and more. Thank you again Elise for your gift of photography, my life has been enhanced in an incredible way. Robert Bethea RJB Sports Consulting

I am a songwriter/musician from the Central Mass area known as The Casket. I've been in the "scene" for the better part of a decade in one form or another, and I have worked with quite a few photographers on different projects over the years. Most have been decent in one or two areas, but it wasn't until I met John Sevigne at a show he was shooting and saw his work that I was absolutely blown away. Of course there are plenty of photographers who have a good eye and, with the right equipment, can get a few good shots. However, with John, not only is the finished product second to none (and I MEAN it, I'll take the Pepsi challenge on that any day) but working with him is an absolute wonder. By now I'm sure it seems like I'm just blowing smoke, but this is coming from a lifelong artist who has had to work with some real pains in the a*sses and cannot overstate how stress free and downright FUN it was to work with someone so talented yet so easy to get along with. That was worth it's weight in gold. And speaking of gold... I almost didn't believe him when he let me know what his price for a promo shoot was (and actually that it was also the same price as a live shoot as well). I had seen his work, and heard the rate he charged, and almost expected to be hit with about 300% more in the type of "hidden fees" that are typically warned against in cell phone service provider commercials. Nope, no tricks. No scams. Just top-tier photography and almost laughably low rates. TL;DR - Don't pass on Sevigne Photography and Design. I can GUARANTEE you will never find better quality work at a better price from a better human being. I for one am not only excited to have John as a part of The Casket's promotional team, but I'm incredibly honored to be able to count him among my friends.

Tiffany was an amazing photographer. She was able to get beautiful pictures of both my children together, which is no small task in its own right. She is great with kids, very responsive and professional. I have recommended her to family and friends. I feel I would have paid double the price for the quality photographs I received, if I went with another photographer.
