I just LOVE Lisa and her photography skills. When we first met I know she must have thought I was crazy, because I booked her nearly two years before my actual wedding date. But she met with me which was a feat in itself with my hectic schedule at the time. I knew I wanted her to be my photographer just from her online galleries, but once I saw her actual portfolio in person I fell in love with her work all over again. Lisa stayed in contact throughout the year, and when we became officially engaged she hit the ground running. I enjoyed each meeting with Lisa, and she even answered my emails late night (BIG THANKS). I am sad that she will be leaving the area, but she has to share her gift with others. Our engagement session was the best, because of her great eye for photography and her all around great personality. Also, because of her suggested photography shooting schedule EVERYTHING ran just as scheduled with time to spare on the day of the wedding. Our wedding was a blast, and Lisa’s pictures definitely tell that story. I am so THANKFUL that you were there to capture each special moment. Lisa you will be greatly missed! P.S. Her company also did the photo-booth for our wedding. It was a HIT!!!! Everyone loves, loves the wedding pictures. And a friend of mine and her family were lucky enough to schedule a family session with her before she leaves. I fully ENDORSE her work and would definitely be a reference for future brides to contact if needed. THANKS a million! Britney The Newlywed

Ben is a truly talented and personable photographer!! I am an artist so I value creativity and uniqueness. Ben helped identify creative positions and locations for various portraits. We took graduation portraits that were professional and casual on a college campus and around the town. Ben did a great job of guiding me through the photo-shoot process while constantly seeking my feedback so that the photo shoot really captured important aspects of my life. Ben was detail oriented while also providing good ideas for potential overall portrait themes. Ben was punctual, organized, and patient. He was very knowledgeable about photography and happy to explain any parts of the photography field that I was curious about. While doing the photo shoot, I felt as though Ben truly wanted to get to know me in order to make the portraits more accurately reflect my life. I appreciated Ben’s easy-going and flexible nature throughout the photo-shoot. He made me feel really comfortable given that this was my first real photo-shoot. I think the portraits did a great job of highlighting various meaningful parts of my identity. After posting the portraits for the photo-shoot, I received numerous positive comments and compliments from friends and family about the portraits!! I would certainly recommend Ben’s photography services to others!

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.

Caitlin has done several photography sessions for my family; she is great with my son and always gets the best pictures from him. She is 100% professional every time. She has an amazing eye for unique sceneries that give me one of a kind family pictures. I know a few other friends who do photography and I always have Caitlin shoot my family and friends. I have never been unsatisfied with her locations, conduct, or pictures.

We couldn’t have been happier with our experience and interactions with Jess! She captured a fun milestone for our sons 1st birthday right in the comfort of our home! The pictures were fun and turned out wonderful. We received some sneak peeks right away, the gallery link super fast and the usb a few days later. We will look forward to working with Faded Photography in the future! Thanks Jess!
