Lisa was an awesome wedding photographer. Our wedding pics turned out beautiful. She was professional and knew what she was doing and how to get great pics.We were so happy with the pics. Thanks Lisa! Would recommend to anyone looking for a fantastic photographer
My review became wordy, here's an overview, with details below: * Complete professionalism, at all times * Awesome personality, was extremely friendly, relaxed my wife and I during the process * Great quality of shots/editing * Dedicated to the art, but more importantly, to the people he is working with * Amazing value We found Cody through Thumbtack back in the spring. When he first reached out to us, I was extremely surprised. His attitude was great, and his beliefs about photography and the business were exceptional. Originally, we were only going to go to Cody for our engagement pictures, as we had other wedding plans. The engagement pictures and photoshoot were superb. He made us feel comfortable in a typically uncomfortable situation. Not only did he shoot great shots, but he came up to Ames to shoot on campus. His pricing for engagement pictures, by themselves, was perfect. When we decided to have our wedding in Iowa instead of Wisconsin, we spoke with Cody about doing our pictures for the ceremony. Cody rolled the price of engagement pictures into the wedding price, and was flexible in our needs. He was willing to make the drive, even for the morning ceremony (sorry Cody!). He arrived at 6:30 a.m. for our 10:00 a.m. ceremony, in order to prep for the wedding. The dedication shown by Cody was extremely important to my wife and I. Throughout the day, he was there in all the right moments, but surprisingly discrete in his work. When we needed direction (the formal shots) he was there to point us in the right direction. At lunch, he sat with us and joined right in on the conversation, which was very welcome. As he stated in the beginning, he doesn't see us so much as clients, but as friends, and it certainly felt that way! We had a very intimate wedding, and a non-typical reception of boating on the lake. He braved the rocking dock to get our departure on the boat, which we also appreciated. The turn around time of the touched up images is also something I'm extremely impressed with. My brother's photographer took several months to get them completed. Cody stands by his word when he says he will get them back to you quickly (engagement pictures that week, wedding ones are this weekend). All in all, we would suggest him to absolutely anybody. Cody surpassed all my expectations of a photographer. He provided my wife and I with great images of our special day(s), and captured the essence of my wife and I's relationship. Our wedding went perfectly and Cody's professionalism, personality, and commitment to providing us with memories definitely added to that feeling of a perfect day.
Working with Jim was nothing but great! From start to finish - he was responsive, knowledgeable and needed very little direction. He gave my team exactly was we asked for and the photos he took are going to add great value to the project. We received the photos promptly after his shoot and couldn't have asked for a better photographer. Thanks for doing such a great job!!
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.
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!
I had them take my sons Senior pictures and they did a wonderful job and even worked with us when we had things come up, I plan on using them in the future and I would recommend them to anyone. They are friendly and flexible and the pictures I am pleased with.
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.
Very talented and professional photographer. I appreciate Jason's eye for beautiful moments and his ability to capture them before they disappear. I enjoy working with Jason to tell stories -- he has helped grow my company through creative assets and gorgeous images. I highly recommend working with Jason Walsmith Photography.
I would recommend Eric and use him again should we have the need for a photographer!
Mark is very good at what he does. He is also patient and innovative. I would recommend Davitt photography anytime.
It was a pleasure experience with Courtney being the photographer for our Daughters Prom . He displayed nothing but professionalism throughout the whole entire shoot , I would advise anyone to hire Courtney on a dime ! Also we were overjoyed with the outcome of our wonderful pictures!!!
Jessica was so professional and fun! Her photography is so amazing! She is my go-to photographer anytime I need great looking pictures.
The photographers were very professional, considerate, and easy to work with. Much appreciated!!
Merima did a great job on our wedding. She is much more than a photographer, she is a lifesaver! The pictures came out better than we could have imagined! thank you so so much!
Aly Mae Photography which she renamed to Aly Carrol Photography is everything I was looking for in a photographer! I first used her for my senior picture, and then used her again a year later for graduation photos. She is awesome! She is flexible and will do anything you have in mind to get that perfect shot! I would recommend her to everyone!
Kevin was incredibly patient and professional with our entire group. We had fun and can't wait to see the results.
I do photography for all types of events. I specialize in senior photos and weddings. I have a studio in my home for child and family shoots, but I love to shoot on location.
My photography is product of high quality standards, technical knowledge, and passion for my profession. My work is known for being highly personal, showcasing the true personalities and relationships of my subjects.
