Real Estate and Architectural Photography
He came out the next day (Sunday), took pictures, and had them back to us the same night! He had a few recommendations on how to make the area look better. The real estate pictures were great for selling our home For Sale by Owner. Thank you!

Quick turn around and excellent pictures!
Chris responded quickly to my post. Was able to answer all of my questions and even send me other examples. He was able to go out to our site within a week of hiring him and took wonderful pictures! We received our pictures back within the same day of the shoot!

Corporate Guidelines? - No Problem
I would highly recommend hiring Heartland Photos & Design for any corporate photography need. Opening a new hotel that follows strict brand photography guidelines makes if difficult to find a photographer that can produce work that will be approved, however, Chris couldn't have been more perfect for the job. He was very willing to be flexible with the needs of the brand and displayed unmatched attention to detail. His experience and understanding of his field and ours made this a seamless experience. The photos were without question approved by the brand and our management company. We will definitely be looking for other opportunities to work together.

Chris was absolutely amazing to work with! He was able to schedule me right away and the session was perfect. Chris took the time to understood exactly what I was looking for, making sure to take some extra steps to get me a very professional headshot. I would not hesitate to recommend Chris to any of my business colleagues, friends, or family members – not something I typically do but when you have an experience as outstanding as this was, it’s easy to do.

The job was to bring our Harley-Davidson store to life with some great photos of the showroom including bikes, parts & accessories and motor clothes. I was looking for a professional in the person and professional in the final product. Chris delivered on both. We will continue our relationship with Heartland Photos & Design on many future projects and we are excited!!

Chris was great! I needed a last minute headshot taken for one of our employees half way across the country. I had to direct the shoot long distance, so he sent me sample shots to make sure we were getting what we needed. We were very happy with the results!
The Heartland Photos helped our company take professional photos of one of our projects in Altoona, IA. He was more than professional, I would use Heartland Photos again in the future.

We had Chris Ruhaak from Heartland Photos & Design, Inc. come and do our company group and manager head photos. Chris was very professional and efficient. We are very pleased with how he set up his equipment at our business and the final photos were fantastic. We will use him again.

Outlook Business is a fortnightly business magazine from India and we used Heartland Photos & Design for a photo shoot at the University of Nebraska. Christopher Ruhaak knows his craft and his sense of photo composition is excellent. We would hire him again and if you are sitting on the fence with respect to Chris, please go right ahead and hire him. You will be glad with the result.

We had our session today for our daughter's senior pictures. Chris was very accommodating for our schedule and went out of his way to make this work for us. We had already done a Senior picture session in October with another photographer in our area who did not follow through with what they said they would do, so we were looking at having nothing to submit for her year book deadline, nor anything of value for her other Senior year needs. Thumbtack helped us find Heartland Photos and Design. Chris was quick to respond to our request. He followed through on every request in a timely manner. He was able to get us in within a weeks time. The experience at his studio and during the outdoor session was first class. He thoroughly explained his policies and prices both in writing and verbally and answered all our questions. We are extremely pleased with how stress-free the process has been so far. Our daughter had a really good experience. She suffers from anxiety and depression so this could have been an extremely difficult and stressful experience, but it was exactly the opposite! Chris was great about putting her at ease and explaining to her what he was doing. He was very patient and kind to us. He went through the shots with us on his camera and they are really great. He really captured the best in her personality. We are really excited to see the proofs. We would definitely recommend this studio to anyone!

Excellent support, well prepared and flexible considering how challenging the customer was. Strongly recommend Heartland Photos and Design to any who might consider using them. They met and even exceeded most tasks in a timely and professional manner.
Chris Ruhaak made me feel at ease during the photo shoot,
and followed up quickly with just the busniness items I needed.
"Chris did a great job designing my business cards and the labels fro the honey I sell."
