Cody is an amazing photographer!! We booked him almost a year and a half in advance, and he kept in touch every couple months just to make sure we knew he was there if we needed anything. He is very organized, sets up quick, and always conscious of his surroundings. We will continue to use Blackcap Photography for family pictures for years to come!!
Extreme Photo was so easy to work with and my daughter's senior pictures turned out beautifully. The locations chosen for the outdoor photos were perfect and the lighting was exceptional. This company is very professional and very reasonably priced. I also loved that we got to keep all of the 4x6 proofs and the turn around time was only two days! Thanks for your expertise, Extreme Photo! Lori H.
We had our family pictures taken by Reflections Photography by T. Our pictures were taken outdoors, so we were able to include our family pets and Tammy was very professional dealing with the dogs and capturing beautiful scenery. We are very pleased with the pictures, and we would highly recommend Reflections Photography by T.
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
Jami took amazing family pictures for us. She accomidated my desire for outdoor pictures in the winter and in multiple locations. We recommend Jami to others looking for a great photographer. Give her a try, you won't be disappointed!
The whole experience was great with a comfortable studio!!!! Katie did a lot of beautiful photos of my family and worked with us 100% of the way!! I highly recommend her services to others!!
I have now done two photoshoots with Paul and have absolutely loved both experiences! The shoots were very different from one another, but both turned out wonderfully! Paul does a great job of bringing his creative talent to the table during shoots, while also making sure to get your opinion on what you like or dislike. He genuinely cares about not only the photography, but about the people in front of the camera, which results in photos that show personality and look relaxed and professional!
I can't say enough wonderful things about our experiences with Devin and his photography. We've had the unique position of seeing and being part of his photography business from the beginning. Devin has grown as an artist, and his ability to capture the perfect moment is exceptional. From baby photos to family photos, you name it and Devin has captured these for us for the past several years. As a parent, pictures of my children and family are priceless. I've been so impressed with the posed pictures, but I have to say it's the unposed, real-life shots that he happens to catch when we're just being us that amaze me the most. Beyond his natural ability to capture great shots, Devin's easy going demeanor and upbeat personality makes it easy to relax, be natural, and have fun! He's great with babies, kids, families, pets, and even things that don't move. :) He truly cares and it shows. He has proven his professionalism, but even more important, he is an all around great guy. Couldn't ask for someone better to capture our memories. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!
You will not find a more talented or creative photographer anywhere. Jesses dedication to his clients is unparalleled. The level of skill and professionalism he brings to his clients is rare and I wouldn’t hire anybody else to take our family portraits!
Eric recommended a great setting that fit in perfectly with our family photo shoot gift for grandparents. He was super quick to respond to photo editing requests and we are so excited to have been able to pull off this treasured gift while family was here for Thanksgiving. We were blessed with fabulous weather for the outdoor setting too!
We've enjoyed working with Linda and Scott over the years. Together, they have created family and senior portraits for our family. We would never consider using any other photographer. They are very fun to work with and have a wonderful way with their clients. It means a lot to us to have original and creative portraits and Dramatic Memories never disappoints. Their fun style perfectly captures our family every time. We appreciate the way Linda never rushes the sessions and is open to our ideas. We love, love, love Dramatic Memories.
She is an amazing photographer and I would recommend to anybody. She capture a story when she takes someone picture and I just love how it turns out. She does amazing outdoor pictures as well as studio picture. I think everyone should come to her.
I highly recommend Burkhart Family Photography! We LOVE our pictures from our family photo shoot. Emily was so flexible and great at working with our kids. Since she has five of her own, she really understands how hard it is to get a picture of everyone looking at the camera and smiling. We got so many great family pictures that it was hard to choose which to print! I also loved that she was able to capture our personalities. She made everyone feel so comfortable and relaxed. She has a great artistic eye and is a wonderful photographer.
Jessica was so flexible and easy to work with. She has photographed our family and our newborn and we couldn't have been happier with the results. She's very creative and has an excellent eye for beautiful photos. She genuinely cares for her clients and it shows in the time she takes and the quality of the memories she provides. It's important to me to only have gorgeous pictures but also have printing rights to the images. We LOVE Copper Key Stills and look forward to using Jessica for all our family milestones!
Dani Kallsen with Peachy Photography is an amazing photographer. I received boudoir pictures taken by her and her assistant Dessie. When I had made the decision to have boudoir pictures done, Dani had me set up a secret board on Pinterest with photo ideas and poses I liked and would want to use. Leading up to the day of the photos, Dani was in contact with me regularly making sure I didn't have questions or concerns. When I voiced concerns, she would tell me exactly what she would do to make sure those concerns didn't exist the day of the photo session. The day I was to arrive at the studio, she sent me a reminder message of things "not to forget" and sure enough, I had forgotten a few of those things. Not to worry, she had a plan. Upon arriving at the studio, Dani and Dessie gave me the option to enjoy a glass of wine to help me become comfortable, and it helped a tremendous amount. Something that hadn't crossed my mind, Dani had thought of. Throughout the session, Dani would have me look at the photos that I pinned on Pinterest to study them and try my best in the poses. If I wasn't able to get the pose right, Dani didn't hesitate in showing me what I needed to do. I didn't not want to see the actual photos until she sent them to me which was very scary since it was a one and only opportunity since I was visiting Iowa for only a couple days. When I received the photos, I cried because they turned out so beautiful, classy, and she exceeded every expectation I had. I am happy to be able to have her as my wedding photographer especially after what she showed me she could do. She is worth so much more money than what she charges but that tells me you don't have to break the bank to get professional photos. There will be another review to follow after the wedding in September. Dani with Peachy Photography will be my photographer for all events going forward.
I love that Jess captured so many candid moments of my children, and my family. She was very welcoming and accommodating (and very patient with my kids!). I recommend Jess and look forward to Faded Photography capturing more of my families moments.
Susan has done our family portraits as well as our christmas cards several times. Some of my most cherished possessions are the photos she took of my mom with our family before my mom passed away. Susan's work is top notch as she has both creativity as well as attention to detail in her photos. She always provides us with great customer service.
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!
I offer very competitive prices for my services and I have a lot of editing experience as well to make your photos perfect.
Fernando is an amazing photographer. He has taken my families pictures for the past couple of years and is always capturing that perfect candid picture that just shows our personalities. I highly, highly recommend Fernando, you won't be disappointed.
