Ben was an incredible person to work with. He not only made it comfortable and fun, but took beautiful pictures of our wedding and previously our engagement pictures. What we loved most about our experience was Ben stayed with us literally the whole day of our wedding. From 9 or so in the morning till the end of our reception at 11. He took beautiful pictures and told the whole story of our perfect day. I would very highly recommend Ben to anyone that asks. We will be contacting him again for family pictures,

Garrison videotaped, edited and prepared our wedding video in 2009. He was very professional, friendly and did excellent work. We have our special day saved for a lifetime thanks to him. He caught all of our best moments that we couldn't even remember ourselves the next day. Highly recommend.

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!

Dani Kallsen with Peachy Photography is an amazing photographer. I received boudoir pictures taken by her and her assistant Dessie. When I had made the decision to have boudoir pictures done, Dani had me set up a secret board on Pinterest with photo ideas and poses I liked and would want to use. Leading up to the day of the photos, Dani was in contact with me regularly making sure I didn't have questions or concerns. When I voiced concerns, she would tell me exactly what she would do to make sure those concerns didn't exist the day of the photo session. The day I was to arrive at the studio, she sent me a reminder message of things "not to forget" and sure enough, I had forgotten a few of those things. Not to worry, she had a plan. Upon arriving at the studio, Dani and Dessie gave me the option to enjoy a glass of wine to help me become comfortable, and it helped a tremendous amount. Something that hadn't crossed my mind, Dani had thought of. Throughout the session, Dani would have me look at the photos that I pinned on Pinterest to study them and try my best in the poses. If I wasn't able to get the pose right, Dani didn't hesitate in showing me what I needed to do. I didn't not want to see the actual photos until she sent them to me which was very scary since it was a one and only opportunity since I was visiting Iowa for only a couple days. When I received the photos, I cried because they turned out so beautiful, classy, and she exceeded every expectation I had. I am happy to be able to have her as my wedding photographer especially after what she showed me she could do. She is worth so much more money than what she charges but that tells me you don't have to break the bank to get professional photos. There will be another review to follow after the wedding in September. Dani with Peachy Photography will be my photographer for all events going forward.

Jami did our engagement photos and I absolutely love them. She did a great job of making us feel comfortable and incorporating our ideas, and dogs :) She is very reasonably priced and incredibly accommodating. She edited our pictures very quickly and I loved them! I can not wait to see what a great job she does on our wedding pictures this winter!

Bekah photographed our wedding in 2015, and it was her first ever! You would have thought it was her 1,000th wedding, though, as she knew exactly what to photograph and when. I had asked for more candid photos (as well as arranged shots) and received just that! Bekah even caught the moment a butterfly landed on me and that hasn't ever happened to me! The pictures were so exceptional that my sister (a bridesmaid who couldn't make it at the last minute due to illness) said she truly felt like she'd been there to experience it all first-hand. She had been so sad and the photos made her feel like she didn't miss out! Bekah put in so much effort to making the trek our way, being a support to me throughout the day, and being so professional and loving toward us at the same time. If we could do the day all over again, I'd still want Lambent Lifestyle Photography!!

I couldn't recommend Brittany more highly. She is an amazing photographer with a great eye. She is professional and kind and quick with her business. We were completely comfortable in our engagement session with Brittany and the pictures are gorgeous - we couldn't have dreamed them better!!! We are very much looking forward to our wedding and all the photos Brittany will catch of some of life's most important moments. If you want someone with you during your special times, Brittany is the perfect pick!!!

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.

Travis has done our engagement, Christmas cards, couples boudoir, and wedding photos. Our wedding was outside and 40 degrees, so it could have gone downhill very quickly. Travis was able to keep our whole wedding party smiling and having fun, which is an amazing trait of his. I am so pleased with how our photos turned out!

If you want a personal, professional, fun, and genuine person as your wedding photographer, higher Bailey at Studio 14! She will always do whatever it takes to capture EVERY moment of your special day. She was so friendly to every person, and not bossy like some photographers, but she knows how to get the job done!!! She values people as people, not just customers, and genuinely cares about your photography wants and needs. She is also an amazing friend, and I've loved watching her build up her career. She's always been good at what she does, so it's crazy to see that she just keeps getting better and better at her job!!! She was also VERY QUICK about getting photos back to you! All of the pictures turn out AMAZING. She has a true eye for art and photography. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to make posing for pictures more fun.

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.
