I have been using Beth Madison Photography for my family photos for several years, and I couldn’t be happier. I have 3 girls ranging in age from 22months to 10 years old and we've worked with Beth on birth, christening, first communion and other family events! Beth connected with my girls right away, put them at ease and got them giggling. Needless to say with 3 girls Beth has an abundance of patience a very important trait in dealing with a chaotic environment! At our shoots, she was meticulous in her preparation acknowledging in working with children the importance of keeping the actually photo shoot short and concise. Beth did a combination of candid and posed shots and always went above and beyond to make everything work together even with last minute changes! She always delivered beautiful images of my children happy and being themselves. What’s more, she gave us lots of time and personal attention and I was involved in every step of the process if that's what I preferred. Otherwise, she was very happy to make suggestions referring back to her extensive experience in the art of photography. When I first started looking for a photographer, I considered using larger photographer companies and high-end portrait photo chains. I wanted something more personal for my family, I found Beth Madison Photography, and I’m thrilled with the results and will continue to use Beth to capture other family milestones in the future.

I LOVED working with Maraki Photo, Inc. Rayleen was our photographer and she was responsive leading up to the shoot, patient with me and my many questions, and very pleasant and positive. Day-of she showed up early to the site, immediately made me and my family comfortable (including my 4 year old, camera-shy niece), and was patient with us. The photos turned out really beautiful and my family and I are going to enjoy these for a very long time. I highly recommend working with Meraki Photo for any photography needs.

We highly recommend hiring James. He photographed our small family celebration and did an amazing job. He got all of the portraits we wanted and many outstanding candids. He is very creative and has the eye of an artist. He was incredibly easy to work with. He has outstanding communication skills. Our guests ranged in age from three weeks to 95 years old and he worked wonderfully with all of us. He captured not only what we requested but so much more. We look forward to working with him again in the future.

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.

Amazing photographer, he took my model headshots and portraits. I really enjoyed it because I am not used to doing modeling shots and I didn't really know what I was doing. He was very patient and took his time, he likes to try new things as well. In the end, I couldn't have been happier with the results.. Beautiful quality. He is very punctual as well which is something to appreciate!! I would definitely go back to him when in need of photographer.

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!

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

We had such a wonderful experience with both TeQoa and Andre! Not only is their work stunning, but they have a fantastic dynamic that put us at ease right away. We were immediately comfortable with them, and loved having them direct the shoot so that we could simply have fun together. They focused both on the ideas that we brought to the table, as well as provided tons of other photo and video opportunities that we hadn't thought of, which ended up being some of our favorite shots! Their attention to detail and eye to the artistic composition of each and every shot is unmatched. We felt incredibly taken care of and we had so much fun during our engagement shoot that we absolutely can't wait to work with them again at our wedding! Don't miss out on the opportunity to work with such amazing artists!

It was absolutely fantastic working with Lisa Klapyk Photography! Lisa was professional, prepared and lots of fun. We hired Lisa to shoot some photos of our son for his 1-year milestone, she also took some photos of the entire family. The location she chose was absolutely beautiful, Lisa arrived before us and scouted out the perfect backdrops for our portraits. She had an assistant with her, who was prepared with toys to keep our son smiling, and focused on the camera. They were both really good with our little one, and patient. My son, usually cries at the sight of strangers so I was surprised that he smiled and laughed at Lisa and her assistant. They really knew what they were doing. Lisa provided all the necessary props, including some letters that spelled the word "ONE" and a little chair and table for our LO to sit at. We opted to do a "smash cake" which was messy and fun. Lisa was even prepared with paper towels and helped us get everything cleaned up. I would recommend Lisa to all my family and friends, she is professional but more importantly she is kind and a joy to work with. Our photos came out beautifully, we have them hanging all over the house and guests compliment them all the time. Thank you Lisa for a wonderful experience and beautiful memories!

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.
