Carrie work was great, I have no complaints. I would have liked a little better communication, meaning more prompt... I am trying something new and trying to juggle a lot of things at once and I found myself getting a little impatience at times waiting for a response. However, I think overall she was great at what she did and I would recommend her.

I hired KatEli Photo for my wife's 65th birthday party. it was a 1920's speakeasy theme with all of our friends in costume. My wife had been wanting to have this party for years. Kat was a real pleasure to work with. She showed up early to capture pictures of the venue and the guests as they arrived. Kat took great candid shots without disrupting the flow of the event. Her posed shots were fantastic. All of the pictures we received were sharp and clear. We now have great pictures to help us remember and re-live our special night. If you need a photographer to document a special event, look no further, Kat is the best!

Humberto took my family photographs and was beyond professional. We had to reschedule initially due to weather and he was very accommodating, even suggesting a new, beautiful location for the shoot. He was also very helpful when it came to ordering prints. I highly recommend hiring Humberto as your photographer!

My friends joke about how unphotogenic I am. These jokes have gone on for nearly a decade, so needless to say, I was somewhat self-conscious when I decided it was time to invest in a proper headshot. Add to that, my desire for a photo which captured my personality and provided a glimpse into my character; I needed a talented photographer whose skill matched my vision. To this end, I could not be more happy with my experience with Barry. Here's why: - He immediately made me feel comfortable. His skill and attention to detail, combined with music and an inviting personality made my shoot an enjoyable experience. - It was apparent that he is passionate about creating a great outcome, and his work reflects that passion. - I value quality, and that is what he provids. In less than a month after my shoot ,I have realized returns on my investment. He creates images that will advance your personal/professional brand. If you want images that reflect who you are and can assist you in your branding goals choose Barry Harley. If you just want some dope photos, choose Barry Harley. And, if a fun, warm, and engaging experience is what you want, choose Barry Harley.

I met with Heather at my convenience and felt she understood the emotional as well as artistic components of the project. She produced a wonderful restoration of the photograph capturing the essential character that was so critical. I am now able to share the person with family and friends.

About

I am a recovering corporate lawyer who found photography as an artistic release from the long and grinding hours in the office. After spending a few years with my newfound hobby, I have decided to take the next step in my photographic journey. My focus is simply on the art of photography -- no hype, no overly processed images, and no hidden fees. I'm happy to work with you to shoot anything my lenses can capture. I like the challenge of any event or scene. Whether it is highlighting gourmet food at the newest restaurant, helping local businesses ramp up their marketing, or commemorating an important point in your life, I'm your photographer. - Portraits: I'll capture the special time in your life with engagement photos or maternity, newborn or family portraits. - Restaurants and bars: Showcase your culinary creations, cocktails, decor, and ambiance to attract new customers. - Specialty shops: Local businesses need love. Capture the details of your product with intricate photos for your website or marketing materials. - Sporting events: You don't have to worry about missing the fun while you're behind the lens, because I'll capture high-quality action shots while you enjoy the game. - Special events: From small social events to elaborate weddings, we can customize a package that fits your event. However, you're certainly not limited to the options above. If you would like me to shoot something that's not listed above, contact me, and we can discuss your project. I am looking forward to delivering amazing pictures for you!

About

Are you in need of a photographer who is knowledgeable, professional, and reliable? Do you have a party, children's birthday party, event, reunion, engagement, wedding and/or reception, baptism, naming ceremony, bar/bat mitzvah or a holiday party that's coming up and you want it documented through photos? Are you in need of portraits (individual or family), maternity photos, headshots, or photos of your business? If you need photography, for whatever reason or purpose, you've stumbled upon the right ad! I am available for hire. I am affordable, professional, and thorough! What's your rate? For $100 per hour, I will come to wherever you need photos taken (in the Baltimore or DC area) and snap away. My hourly rate includes unlimited photography for your scheduled session period. What do I get? You will be sent a disc(s) that's filled with all of the photos from the event or shoot; it will be sent to the address of your choice within 1 to 2 business days. Or, you can elect to have the photos delivered via a private download link. You can then have the photos you like best printed at a one-hour photo center (like at Target, Walmart, etc.) or at home. Allowing you to do what you want with the photos keeps the price low for you, and you'll have your photos in your possession sooner. Please visit my site and portfolio (click link located in the upper left, near my profile picture) for an idea of my previous work. How can I pay? Cash and major credit cards are accepted. Payment is due during the shoot time, in person. There'll be a 3% fee for credit card usage. All shoots are on-location, and studio shoots aren't available at this time. Are there any travel fees? Some locations are subject to a travel fee, but you will be notified during our initial communication if this is the case. For multiple locations, a $10 addition location fee per each additional location will be included in total payment due. Can we meet to discuss my options? If you would like an in-person consultation, a flat fee of $80 will be added to the shoot total that's due upon end of shoot. A cancellation or no-show fee of 50% of the total due is applicable if cancellation is made within 48 hours before the shoot. Please visit my website for full and up-to-date emails. The above information is subject to change. A little bit about me, your photographer: I am a 2010 graduate of UMBC, with a bachelor's degree in photography, so you can be confident that I have the knowledge and experience to do the job. Photography is my passion, and I believe that I have a "good eye", and I would like to offer my skills as a service to you.
