Ben was so great to work with!! He was there from hair curling to the last dance. Looking through my pictures felt as though Ben was a long time family friend, he was so perceptive as to groups of people and got great candids of them! I didn't want the typical posed photos for my wedding, and Ben captured just what I did want, my guests having fun! He also had a great artistic eye for the serious shots. The hardest part of my wedding is going to be picking which photos I want to print!!! The only thing I would have done different (and this is totally on me!) would be to make sure to write down any photos or groupings that were important. Although I love my photos and have so many great ones to choose from, a couple shots did get lost in the shuffle because I wasn't prepared. Ben did such an amazing job, I would highly recommend him!! And he was very reasonably priced!!!

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!

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

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!

Mark has been one of my favorite photographers to work with. He makes you feel comfortable; like he's already your best friend, he's easy going, understanding, listens to any ideas you have and values your input. He gives you feedback throughout the shoot, which, I personally felt allowed me to see how I could better the photos that were being taken. He has passion and drive for his work and it shows in the end product of his photos. He is genuine; a good guy and makes the photography experience fun and relaxing.

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.

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.
