My experience with Ben was a 10/10. I booked Ben to shoot my outdoor evening wedding. Leading up to the wedding, Ben was quick to respond to any emails I sent, called to do a phone type interview to ask questions about myself and the groom and get a feel for us and the style of our wedding, and he followed up a couple weeks before the wedding to double check on final arrangements/locations. As soon as he got there the day of and introduced himself, Ben was polite, professional, and kept the mood light and fun. Ben came with two cameras hooked to this awesome shoulder/back harness that he wore which allowed him to move quickly and keep the cameras handy, I really appreciated this because we were able to take shots around the golf course easily without moving equipment. Ben got all my requests for specific photo shots that I wanted and a perfect location for our private first look. During our wedding party photos, Ben kept the mood light and relaxed and I had a wonderful time! During the outdoor ceremony itself, Ben did such a great job of not being intrusive. I have seen some truly distractive photographers getting right up next to the bride and groom and it just makes me cringe. He got some beautiful shots without becoming intrusive. During the reception, Ben was just as great as he had been all afternoon. The groom and I snuck away for some photos under the stars at the ceremony site and I absolutely just love them. It was so wonderful to take a moment together with the bustle of the reception going on nearby and just be together. I felt it was a very intimate moment and it did not feel like we were having our picture taken at all, we were able to relax and Ben worked his photo magic and the photos are beautiful. Our families had nothing but positive things to say about Ben. Not only was he a great photographer, he was a really personable guy too!I would book Ben again and I highly recommend him.
For almost 20 years Vivid Gray has performed extensive graphic design, website concept development, video production, product photography and content writing for several high-tech companies I have been with. As the head of Product Management and Marketing at these various entities, I knew the value of having an effective branding/marketing design guru as a resource, and Jay has performed that role exceptionally well. His creative talent and keen eye for what will work in any situation, is unmatched. I would recommend, without any reservation, his breadth of services to any entity looking to standout with respect to their brand and expand their market reach as a result. The guy is simply amazing!
Very flexible and so sweet. Mary makes photography fun. She has creative ideas and really knows how to work lighting and effects
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
Holly is a wonderful Photographer, I have not only used her for our personal family pics but for my business promotion pics also. Not only is she fun but she is professional also and doesn't rely on photoshop to make the picture better she understands angels, lighting, timinig, etc. I would definitely recommend Timeless Photog for ALL your photography needs!
Jill was my wedding photographer and I would definitely recommend her photography services! Not only did my pictures turn out beautifully, but I really appreciated how Jill was calm (helped with wedding day nerves!) yet made the photography fun on my wedding day. Thanks Jill!
Taylor was so fun and awesome during my photo shoot! She made me feel comfortable and kept me smiling and laughing! Will recommend her to everyone I know!!
I have never personally had Tina do photos for me, though I very much look forward to working with her in the near future. Ever picture she posts is outstanding. The breathtaking beauty of her photos is amazing. I enjoy seeing new photos and art from her daily. I would recommend TJS photography to anyone and everyone. Her talent is unmatched!!!
Nicole is an amazing photographer with organic talent. She is able to naturally capture special moments with such ease making her passion show in her work. She is super patient and good with kids also. She has taken my family's pictures since I was pregnant with my first baby 5 years ago. I highly recommend her without a doubt.
Cukini Studio is by far one of the most incredible photo studios I have ever worked with. I adore them. I have a difficult face to light due to my skin tone and bone structure, and they always manage to keep me from having awkward shadows on my face in my pictures (: I did a couples shoot with Cukini Studio, and they went above and beyond to make my boyfriend and I's photos beautiful works of art. I love how creative they are; they push the envelope and go beyond cookie cutter photography practices. They want to project your vision, but will guide you and not leave you alone to figure it out. Michael also happens to be one of the most down to earth easy to talk to photographers in the area. If you're looking for someone who is going to be easy to work with, and not make you feel morally uncomfortable in any way shape or form, he's your guy. I would 10/10 recommend using Cukini Studio for all of your photography needs (:
I have seen several pieces of her work that are spectacular very precise, clear, and captivating she is excellent to work with very friendly and patient and would be a great find for someone who is looking for a photographer
I hired Robert as a photographer for my daughters first birthday, not only did he come to the party, he also came to my house before hand to get pictures of my daughter leaving the house and all. He was early to the job and stayed Til it was over. Great Rates and Extremely professional, I recommend Mr. Nelson to all my friends and family.
Mark is simply the best photographer in the whole wide world and if you don't hire him right now you are a fool.
5+ stars, I would give more if I could. Kai Photography is great to work with. They have great prices for the services you are getting and the pictures always turn out so well. I have had wedding as well as family pictures taken with the photographer, Jen, and she is professional and gets things done and back to you so quick. The best part is that she can edit anything and gives you the file so you can get your picture printed wherever you like! I recommend Kai Photography to everyone I meet, my sister even had her senior pictures taken here and they turned out amazing! She knows the best ways and places to take pictures, the best lighting, and has amazing equipment! Can't wait to go back!
Maganda is our favorite family photographer. She has captured the most precious life moments from pregnancy to newborn to family. She always makes us feel comfortable and the pictures turn out amazing!
Becky did a fantastic job with our engagement and wedding photos. We couldn't have been more pleased with the final results. She was professional, prompt and really fit in. Sometimes when looking at our wedding album, we can't believe it's us-it feels like we are looking at pictures from a magazine! Becky captured every moment of our wedding beautifully, and then some! She made us feel so comfortable during our engagement session...it was almost like a good friend was behind the lens. Take it from a bride, that on your big day, you're really too busy to focus on a photographer. Traditional poses have never really been our style or what we were searching for. Believe me when I say you really need a photographer who "blends" in wih the crowd, all the while shooting spontaneous, yet tasteful shots that really capture all your most cherished moments during your wedding. Danette Kenneth Photography did a marvelous job at doing just that...I don't even remember seeing Becky snapping shots...she didnt make herself obvious to our guests. We really fell in love with her spunky personality, and it came our in her unique work! She was totally open to what we wanted, and ties in a little of her own stuff as well. Our wedding album is one of our most treasured items, made for us by a "God-given" talented artist! If we could do it all over again, we would still choose Becky/Danette Kenneth Photography! We highly suggest her to our friends and family....you won't be disappointed!
Thank you, Chasity!!!! We LOVE this video! You did an amazing job!!! She worked well with all the families.
