Had a wonderful experience - Gorgeous pictures - we wanted something tradition but creative that captured our Sprit as a couple. Loved that she came to the dinner rehearsal and got to know the family and the wedding party so that she could get better idea of the needed pictures of the event. Brittany & Phillip

Cody was wonderful for our engagement and wedding photos! He put us and our guests at ease (and I am not normally comfortable in front of a camera, let alone under the stress of all of the last minute things that pop up during a wedding!). He stayed in touch with us regularly from the day we decided to hire him up to the wedding, and seemed to really understand what our goals were for the overall aesthetic of the wedding. Right from the start he was enthusiastic about our ideas for a library shoot for our engagement photos and our wedding at Hunter Mansion. He perfectly captured the elements of each location that drew us to them with his photography. The biggest thing I wanted from the wedding (aside from pictures of the ceremony and the shots with our families) were candid images of our guests during our reception as we had arranged for a murder mystery that I knew would have a lot of great moments that I would probably miss in all of the chaos. He captured those moments wonderfully without intruding in any way. He also captured some wonderful images of the beautiful flowers a friend of my mother-in-law designed for us. The pictures are beautiful and exactly what I had hoped for. Aside from his talents as a photographer, Cody is great to work with in general. He was friendly, communicative, and helpful even with things that weren't really part of his job at all - case in point, none of the groomsmen knew how to tie a tie, but he helped them all with that. He took a lot of stress off of what would have been a very nerve-wracking day. My husband and I are immensely grateful for everything he did for us, from the engagement photos all the way through to the wedding.

Bill (Extreme Photo) met all expectations as our photographer on our wedding day. Bill also did our engagement pictures which turned out wonderful. Bill really knew how to use the lighting and environment around us to produce a beautiful picture. Once we got closer to our wedding, he went out on his own time to find an outdoor location near our church to use the day of the wedding. The spot he found was perfect! As we look back at our pictures, we are delighted with all the moments he caught. There was a nice balance of candid and formal photographs. Finally, the cherry on top for working with Bill was how promptly he returned our pictures. We received a beautiful album along with over 300 4x6 pictures. Bill is a quality photographer at a reasonable price. We can’t wait to order more photos from Bill and use him for more photography needs.

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!

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

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.

Regina was more than I could have asked for in a photographer for our wedding day! She was easy to work with, fun, excited, extremely professional, and our action shots were just as awesome as our still shots. She stayed with us all day and night and got so many pictures I didn't realize she even took (like she got pictures of our faces while we read our vows to each other). I would use her again in a minute and HIGHLY recommend her!

    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!
