Joe was the absolute best! We had some weather conditions working against us but he always remained calm and even listen to me cry over the phone. Even with just him photographing the wedding, he captured every moment flawlessly. He answered every request I had when it came to example photos that I had shown him prior to the big day. He was on time, professional, and blended into the crowd to get some fabulous candid shots. He was recommended to me by a friend and I am so happy i went with him. It was also amazing that he wasn’t ridiculously expensive like all the other wedding photographers. He is one of a kind!

Tiara provided a great trial run session, she thoroughly mapped out her vision for my hair and makeup and helped me establish a timeline of when all my bridesmaids and I would receive our services. While the trial run was an excellent experience - the reason Tiara was booked - Tiara outdid herself during the actual event. First of all she was right on time and ready with her glam squad. Tiara worked rapidly and even altered and adjusted hair and makeup for several of my ladies, due to our very own indecisiveness. My ladies, mom and I were ravishing. The makeup was classic, subtle yet bold enough to make a statement. Lastly, and most meaningful to me, Tiara threw in extras free of charge all for the sake of making sure we receive the look we envisioned. The little extra knickknacks set everything over the top. My wedding event was beyond perfect and all thanks to professionals such as Tiara!

The entire experience of working with Robert was EXCELLENT. We needed to arrange for a photographer for our wedding in Florida from a distance -- we live in Michigan. He listened to our needs and answered all our questions. Robert's services were exactly as promised and he delivered beautiful and innovative pictures. He was fun to work with and we so enjoyed having him as part of our wedding party. We would highly recommend hiring Robert Hedges as the photographer for any event.

After seeing the stunning photos Scott took during a joint graduation & engagement photo session, we knew we had to hire him for our wedding! We have had several other interactions with photographers (including a prior engagement session), and Scott has consistently been the most flexible, prompt and professional. In addition, the quality of photos he provides is simply amazing! Our wedding pictures turned out simply beautiful and we couldn't be happier. Highly recommend!

Peter and his wife Christy did a fantastic job as photographers for my wedding. They arrived and departed at the exact times we'd agreed upon, and they had wonderful suggestions for photos that would show off the venue we'd selected. I would recommend Peter and Christy to anyone looking for professional photography!

Allan was hired to record a family event. He quietly slipped through the attendees and recorded very special candid images of the event. Excellent composition and imagery. However, I had to knock of one star for showing up in shorts - partly my fault; should have informed him; just concluded that he would anticipate or ask. Otherwise great customer service, great product delivery and great price.

I would give Colleen 10 stars if this website didn't limit me to 5! I first got in touch with Colleen via Thumbtack when I was looking for a photographer to capture my engagement proposal in Venice, FL. My fiance and I live in West Virginia and were planning a vacation in Venice for our 3-year anniversary. I was planning a surprise proposal on the beach, but since I had never been to Venice before, I was a bit worried about how it would all unfold. Colleen contacted me promptly via thumbtack after I submitted my information. We spoke over the phone and she was incredibly willing to help make sure that my proposal was flawless! Because I could not visit the area to plan it out, she personally drove over an hour to the spot where I wanted to propose to scout everything out. I can't tell you how much I appreciated this personal touch -- other photographers I contacted did not offer this level of customer service. I couldn't have pulled off the perfect proposal without her help! On the evening of the proposal, Colleen was camped out discretely on the beach with plenty of time to spare. She helped plan the perfect setup to capture the moment when I proposed! We did an engagement photo shoot directly after the proposal as the sun was setting on the beach. To be honest, I typically hate being photographed for any length of time, but Colleen made everything totally fun, relaxed, and enjoyable! I couldn't have asked for a more perfect proposal and photo shoot. Colleen immediately went to work editing photos, and we had several photos available that evening to share with friends and family. All the other photos were available the next day. Absolutely loved her work! All in all, the greatest thing about this experience was the personal touch Colleen offered. She was genuinely excited to be a part of this moment, and it showed in both her work and her willingness to help me plan out the perfect proposal. For anyone out there who has tried to plan a proposal in an unknown location, it can be pretty stressful. Colleen helped minimize this stress and left us with some amazing photos in the process! I've gotten countless compliments on the photos and will forever be happy that we have such beautiful documentation of our engagement.

My brother proposed to his girlfriend and I was supposed to organize the photographer. Heather was fabulous! She answered all of my messages within a few hours, if not under an hour. She met with us the day before to go over the whole plan so we all knew what was going on. The day of she arrived with plenty of time before the proposal so we could get ready for the big question to be popped! She took AMAZING quality photos and sent them within a week. The photos are great quality, and she took a lot of photos so not a moment was missed. I highly recommend Heather Rose Photography for any event :)

She is amazing she made my wife feel like a beautiful queen. On a day that is full of stress she took away the stress instead of adding to it like some photographers. As I go through the pictures you can see the love and joy that brought my wife and I to that beautiful day.

I met with Lorraine prior to my event and she showed me some of her work and it was very impressive. Lorraine was wert personal and listened to what I wanted to do, but also offered suggestions and options I hadn’t thought of doing. The price was right and she had all the equipment , including beautiful backdrops to really enhance my experience. Lorraine was very patient with my family and I when it came to posing and taking the pictures. The overall experience was very pleasant and I would recommend Lorraine to anyone who wants professional grade photos and experience without having to pay the high costs that Studio Photographers charge. You definitely need to call Lorraine for any event and talk to her about your options.

I loved all the photos he took of me and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a good deal on quality photos and a quality photographer.

Halley at Eastly Photography is a wonderful photographer! I hired her to take headshots of me. She did a magnificent job walking me through the modeling, she was very clear in her directions and made it all easy! She gave me digital copies and printed out some high quality large photos too included in her package. I have recommended her to everyone I come across, she is worth the investment for sure!

The photographer arrived early and was set up in time for our shoot. She gave great advice for poses and background. Very pleased with the results. In addition, she was very pleasant to work with and someone with whom I will do business with again.

Our company had a wonderful experience with Next Level Media creating a video of our school theater performance. Leading up to our event the communication was thorough and responsive. Mr. Baeckmann was professional and reliable! Two qualities that can be difficult to find! The quality, editing and finished product of the video were superior! He not only showcased the performance but also more personal touches as we prepared for the production, the students' excitement, and the parents' reactions to the performance. The photographs that he also took of the event were beautiful. The format in which he created the video for us was easy to use and share with our families. The experience well surpassed our expectations and we will be working with Next Level Media again in the Fall on another project for our school! We highly recommend Mr. Baeckmann and this company! Thank you Next Level Media! Terra Tominelli-Founder TerraNichol Academy of the Arts
