As a project manager for a magazine, I have to book photographers in cities across the country, not knowing anything about them. For us at the magazine, it's always a risky operation because we don't have an established relationship with most of the photographers, plus we're always under tight deadlines, AND we can't physically be at these photoshoots. When we found JoAnne, we booked her that day for a shoot the following day. When I spoke with her she was so professional and so bubbly I felt like I could trust her with our clients immediately. This totally put my mind at ease considering all the bad experiences we've had in the past. When we received the photos from JoAnne, the quality of photos was amazing and the shots were exactly what we needed. JoAnne even went above and beyond the count that we asked for which gave us a lot of variety. Our magazine looks great because of J Richards! If we have to book a photographer in this area again, we will be coming straight to her.

Marc Solomon Was my Photographer for my wedding 5 months ago. I have to say me and my husband were very pleased with Marc. Not only us but 5 months later I am still getting compliments from my guest of how great he was... His personality and energy was perfect for the job. I had a large number of guest at my wedding, and I was surprised on how many photos he was able to take of all the guest. Me and my husband mentioned in the beginning we would like 85% photos of us and 15% of the guest. he hit it rite on the dot. All the photos were amazing. I am still choosing on my main portrait of us, they are all just so breath taking. When I look at the photos it brings me rite back to the day. I was very thankful on his flexibility as well, he stayed later then originally planned, and gave no hesitations to stay later when asked. I cant thank him enough.

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. .

Rob is a wonderful, professional and kind photographer. He took headshots of our staff in our office and everyone was delighted with the experience, how quickly and painless the sitting was. Highly recommended.

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.

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!

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 normally dont write reviews but Oleksandra is just worth writing one for! She's one of the nicest and very professional photographers I got to work with. I onboarded her on such a short notice (two days before my wedding) for my wedding and she was very proactive on communicating with me and my husband and art directing the shots that she needed to take. I am very very pleased! And I can't wait to see the processed photos from our wedding in a week. She's awesome! HIRE HER PEOPLE!

From the very beginning, Alison was very responsive to all my emails and texts. She understood what I was looking for from a photographer, and excuted it well on my big day. On the day of my baby shower, she was extremely professional, punctual and captured great candids and stills. Alison worked well with others and was able to take direction, as well as direct with ease and professionalism. The overall quality of her work was great and her demeanor and ability to work in a fast paced and chaotic party environment was excellent. I would definitely use her for future events and would recommend her to others. Thanks Alison!

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

Dawn is a very talented photographer. She is very creative with her poses and styles. Dawn is very accommodating too and was able to pull together a family photo shoot with 4 kids and 3 adults very last minute. The kids always have a blast in our shoots with Dawn. Even the toughest kids are laughing and smiling and having a blast. We can't wait for our next shoot

I worked with Matt for a 50th birthday party. He took beautiful family portraits before the party, then nice candid shots throughout the night. We had the pictures back not even 2 days later and he then printed photo thank you cards for us that came out great as well! We were so happy we chose Hearts of Film.

Dariusz is an amazing photographer with a great attention to detail. He was very accommodating to me and my wife on our engagement shoot and made us very comfortable. We don't do professional or posed photos much at all and we're nervous to begin with, but even after just a couple of minutes around Dariusz we forgot our anxiety and we're actually enjoying being a part of the creative process with Dariusz. He listened to our thoughts and ideas of what we wanted and incorporated the environment to create beautiful photos. We couldn't be happier with the experience and the results! Thank you again so much Dariusz!!!
