Bill (Extreme Photo) met all expectations as our photographer on our wedding day. Bill also did our engagement pictures which turned out wonderful. Bill really knew how to use the lighting and environment around us to produce a beautiful picture. Once we got closer to our wedding, he went out on his own time to find an outdoor location near our church to use the day of the wedding. The spot he found was perfect! As we look back at our pictures, we are delighted with all the moments he caught. There was a nice balance of candid and formal photographs. Finally, the cherry on top for working with Bill was how promptly he returned our pictures. We received a beautiful album along with over 300 4x6 pictures. Bill is a quality photographer at a reasonable price. We can’t wait to order more photos from Bill and use him for more photography needs.
My emphasis in my Masters Degree in Mass Communication was based in photography, and James is more than an expert! He takes the time to ask you questions and he listens carefully to your answers. I couldn't have had a more expert and very pleasant photographer! I'll definitely use his services again!
Tammy is an excellent photographer and professional. She was very personable with everyone and took beautiful photos!

We were very late with booking a photographer for our son's high school graduation photo session. I was so impressed with Paul's ability to squeeze us into his schedule and accommodate our family. His 20+ years of experience is clearly evident. I was extremely nervous, as this is our first child going through the experience. Paul made us very comfortable and at ease by providing helpful tips to prepare for the photo shoot. He discussed in depth wardrobing, tips for hair cuts, shaving etc. He was on time to shoot the session and very relaxed. His sense of humor is fantastic, making the photo shoot fun and engaging for a teenage boy. He also was a pro at including our youngest and two family dogs in the photo session. Paul knows the Des Moines area well and offers a great selection of areas to shoot the session. I highly recommend Paul if you are looking for an experienced, and very reasonably priced professional photographer. He definitely makes the session fun! Thank You Paul for the excellent photo session. We will definitely be returning for more photo sessions in the future! The Creger Family
Bruce and Paula were amazing! They were very helpful with my first professional photography session. They helped me pick out what outfits would be best and were great with guiding me into the various poses. Plan on using them for my next session
I’m extremely fortunate I have had the opportunity to work with Paul in the past. For as humble as he is, Paul has the skills of someone who has been doing photography for a good while. When I received my photos, I was shocked to see just how high quality they were from the editing, lighting, angling, and down to the picture as a whole. While we usually just find a few angles we like of ourselves and replicate those for every photo we are in, Paul is great at making every part of you look “Instagram worthy”. Whether you are looking for a photographer for your wedding, graduation, family gathering, community/private events, or building a modeling portfolio, Paul delivers on both quantity and quality. I definitely plan to contact Paul in the future to work with him again.
Mark was professional and responsive to the needs of my organization. I would recommend him to other non-profit groups seeking photographic coverage of an event.
It was a pleasure experience with Courtney being the photographer for our Daughters Prom . He displayed nothing but professionalism throughout the whole entire shoot , I would advise anyone to hire Courtney on a dime ! Also we were overjoyed with the outcome of our wonderful pictures!!!
Jessica was so professional and fun! Her photography is so amazing! She is my go-to photographer anytime I need great looking pictures.
The photographers were very professional, considerate, and easy to work with. Much appreciated!!
Regina was more than I could have asked for in a photographer for our wedding day! She was easy to work with, fun, excited, extremely professional, and our action shots were just as awesome as our still shots. She stayed with us all day and night and got so many pictures I didn't realize she even took (like she got pictures of our faces while we read our vows to each other). I would use her again in a minute and HIGHLY recommend her!
Merima did a great job on our wedding. She is much more than a photographer, she is a lifesaver! The pictures came out better than we could have imagined! thank you so so much!
Kevin was incredibly patient and professional with our entire group. We had fun and can't wait to see the results.
Mackenzie was awesome! She did so well at keeping our newborn happy during the session and captured some great photos. She was very professional from start to finish and quick with getting back to me. Five stars!
