Lisa and Jessie were wonderful! They definitely were able to pose my family in the most flattering way and chose the perfect lighting for the shot. The previews are gorgeous. Can't wait to get the pictures. I will definitely be using her again! I think I found my photographer for my family for everything in the future!! Thanks again for everything Lisa and Jessie!! ~Thompson Family

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!

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!!

I had an amazing idea for a Christmas present for my wife to take professional pictures of our two children and put them in a photo album for her. But I needed help. Someone good. I've never had professional pictures taken, but I looked on Google and found Picturesque Photography. I looked through the previous photos, and I was impressed. I contacted Katie and explained that I had to get the photos taken while my wife was working (so she didn't know) and Katie was very helpful. She came to my house and I introduced her to my kids. I have a 3 year old and an 18 month old. Knowing my kids, I thought they would be much more rowdy and excited, but Katie was very patient with them, and ended up taking the most amazing shots I've ever seen. I was so happy with the final product. She took over 200(!) pictures and I ended up picking 30 of them for the photo album. I had her ship them to my house without any identifying information on it and hid them until Christmas. Christmas came and my wife cried when she saw it. She was so happy. The reason why it took me so long to write this review was because she hasn't stopped kissing me since she got it So thanks for making our Christmas the best Christmas ever Katie. I've recommended you to several people already Alex

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.

He makes photo & video shoots both fun and educational. He has produced award winning photos for the Aveda Institute, and created multiple videos that have helped increase student acquisition for the school.

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.
