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

Kaitlin did an amazing job! We are not used to having our pictures taken, but she made us feel very comfortable and we are in LOVE with our photos. The angles and lighting are perfect! She gave us great direction if the way we were standing didn't look right or if my hair was placed poorly. We highly recommend Picturesque Photography & can't wait to see our wedding photos!

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

My wife and I hired Eric to photograph our wedding because of how great his candid photos are. We wanted something different than just your regular wedding photos and he delivered! Eric was great to work with. He is so friendly, professional, and we hardly even noticed him fluttering around taking pictures. The pictures turned out great as well and our favorites were ones we didn't realize he was taking. Overall, Eric was absolutely fantastic and we would recommend him over and over! Thanks for everything Eric, especially for the beautifully captured memories!

    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!

      My husband and I hired Aly for our wedding in the summer of 2013. Everything she did was top notch - from including engagement photos and beautiful photo albums at no extra charge, to the digital copy of all photos included. Her photos are incredible, and our wedding party still comments on how relaxed and easy she made everything.

      Kendra was very professional, lovely and made us all feel at ease. She had an ease about her, to where we didn't tense up in front of the camera, which is highly unusual and unique. Everyone kept asking where I met her, and they really liked her. I am awaiting for our pictures still, because it takes a few weeks. I can't wait to see what they look like! Her other online albums were very classy and professional.

      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!
