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,

My husband and I hired Glam Cam Photography for our daughter's wedding for videography and photography services. The entire process of working with Monroe and his team was great. We meet Monroe prior to hiring him. We wanted to see samples of their work before we signed the contract. At the consultation, they presented great quality wedding books and albums from previous wedding and videos. Sam (my husband) and I were so impressed during this meeting that we upgraded both our photography and videography packages. On the day of the wedding, Monroe and his team showed up an hour and a half prior to the start time detailed in our contract. They set up three video cameras around the venue, to our surprise they brought an extra photographer (free of charge). The photographers meet with the bride and groom and beginning taking preparation and pre-ceremony shots. The entire team was professional and respectful of our guests and our requests. The three photographers (the lead photographer) were every creative in their shots. We had a wedding party of 18. Once again, we were impressed by Glam Cam Photography's attention to detail. Prior to getting our finished projects which included a 20-paged customized wedding book wrapped with a picture of the bride and groom, a wedding DVD, a customized USB drive loaded with all of our selected images and the highlight and full version videos, my son-in-law and daughter spoke with Mr. Sparks about the project and their vision. About 5 weeks after the wedding my daughter receive the items in the mail. She was so excited after opening package that she called me crying in joy. We definitely took a chance on Glam Cam Photography as we were initially turned off by a couple of their reviews on Thumbtack. I am glad we hired Monroe and his team I would must certainly recommend Glam Cam Photography to friends and relatives or to anyone for that matter. Thank you Monroe and the Glam Cam team for capturing all the special moments of my daughter's biggest day. -Mary Houston

We couldn’t have been more pleased with the superb job Chris Kirschbaum did photographing our wedding. His eye for light and composition were exquisite…and his perfect timing for capturing moments was impeccable. Chris delivered the link ahead of schedule, and we began perusing them right away. We couldn’t stop looking at them! They were amazingly beautiful. He treated our very small wedding like it was an extraordinary affair…and the photos made it look like one. It is clear Chris enjoys what he does. He was so much fun to work with…which was evident from the many comments we received about him, including from the priest. Chris brought wonderful ideas for truly innovative shots that were beautiful surprises. Chris met and exceeded our expectations in every way. We would recommend him to anyone seeking a great wedding photographer.

Chastity was the photographer at my daughters wedding. She went way beyond what was needed to get the perfect moments captured. She spent the entire day getting every last detail. She made my daughters wedding photos timeless. Chastity was absolutely wonderful to work with. I will definitely call Chastity for future photography projects that I may have.

She was so wonderful to work with. She was easy to contact. She listened carefully to what we wanted to capture in the photos. We have special needs children who are a challenge to work with and she was a dream to work with! She was so low key and on their level. She had taken the time to scout the outdoor location before hand so it was easy for us during the shoot. The photos are lovely. We will use her again. Very, very pleased.

Verified review

I am a professional wedding photographer and have assisted Candace many many times over the course of several years. I've witnessed her work, first hand. She is consistently on time, reliable, helpful, and extremely competent. She has a long list of happy clients. I know for a fact that she uses the best equipment available to professionals. I also know that she routinely bends over backwards for her clients, but she's only human and can only work with what she's given. As a wedding photographer, I know that it is up to the client to ensure that the wedding day timeline allows for hiccups during the day, not the photographer. If a client opts not to have a wedding planner, they run the risk of the day being disorganized. Photographers are photographers, not wedding planners or personal assistants. The client is responsible for making sure guests/family are where they are supposed to be, when they are supposed to be there. In short, I can't say enough wonderful things about Candace. In fact, if a potential wedding client inquires about my services and I'm booked on that day, I immediately refer them to Candace Hart. I encourage anyone who reads these reviews to ask to see any images in question. I have no doubt Candace's work will speak for itself.

We had worked with Michael on our engagement photos first. Due to our busy schedules, we had to settle for a less than pleasant time of year. I was sure we were wasting our time with a gray and dreary day but he was able to pull off a series of photos that had people commenting on how great they were and how he captured our unique personalities. We rehired him for our wedding photos and we came away with several stunning photos. My favorite memory and photo from the day was taken on the roof of a building. We snuck away to catch the sunset and snap some photos, which gave my husband and I a private moment to just be together on our wedding day. I didn't know it at the time, but that would be one of my favorite moments-and we have the picture to prove it!

Weddings by Carue was the best choice we could have made for our invitations. Carissa was so patient with me as we finalized the design, making sure I had exactly what I wanted. The final product is beautiful: elegant and classy without being ostentatious, the perfect design to set the tone for our wedding day. The pricing is quite affordable, especially when other area designers are charging a lot more. The service was excellent from start to finish!

JB Photography was everything I was hoping for in wedding photography! She was early, considerate, and kind. I felt so at ease when she was taking photos. She was really great at working with so many family members. Jen was quick with returning our photos to us. We will definitely be contacting her again for future photography needs. I will and am suggesting her to all of my friends and family.

My wife and I hired Robert Earl Entertainment to be the videographer for our wedding. Bobby captured video footage of our rehearsal dinner, pictures and getting ready before the ceremony, the ceremony and the reception. Bobby did such a great job of recording from multiple camera angles and capturing all of the special moments from our big day which seemed to happen in the blink of an eye. Bobby was very friendly, outgoing and professional throughout the weekend and stayed on top of everything. After our wedding was over, her sent me files for all of the full footage for the weekend. Also, he made a video montage which included a song from our favorite band. Bobby's editing skills really shine in the montage and it means so much to us that we can watch that and the footage anytime that we want. We were very pleased with the services that Bobby provided and would recommend him to all of our friends and family. Five stars goes to Robert Earl Entertainment. Keep up the great work!

5+ stars, I would give more if I could. Kai Photography is great to work with. They have great prices for the services you are getting and the pictures always turn out so well. I have had wedding as well as family pictures taken with the photographer, Jen, and she is professional and gets things done and back to you so quick. The best part is that she can edit anything and gives you the file so you can get your picture printed wherever you like! I recommend Kai Photography to everyone I meet, my sister even had her senior pictures taken here and they turned out amazing! She knows the best ways and places to take pictures, the best lighting, and has amazing equipment! Can't wait to go back!

Eric is an AMAZING photographer!!! Not only does he provide exceptional results, he also has a great eye for capturing the perfect shot. When taking our family photos, he made each one of us feel great and look amazing. My husband and son are not huge fans of pictures, but even they were impressed with the final results. His pictures will hang in our house for years to come. I highly recommend him for all of your photography needs. His wedding and engagement pictures are just as wonderful.

Megan was an excellent photographer for our engagement and wedding pictures! She quickly learned our personalities and used those for our poses. She got pictures that we requested, including one of my huge family! We couldn't have picked a better photographer for our big day. Our outdoor pictures are absolutely gorgeous. She made sure to get all of the details of our wedding while we were getting ready and between things, so we can cherish each memory of our big day forever. I highly recommend using Megan as your photographer!

About

Here's a testimonial that perhaps best explains this: "Shuva has a way with people and it shows when she is doing a shoot. She is able to make folks feel comfortable and because of this, people are more natural and themselves in the occasions and situations Shuva captures them in. She is professional all the way from concept to delivery of your pictures. I would HIGHLY recommend her for any photography needs you have. She is an A++ in my book!"
