Verified review

GORGEOUS, Stunning, Absolutely Breathtaking and Beautiful. These were the words used by family and friends while viewing our daughters wedding pictures taken by Chris. When my daughter and I first viewed the wedding photos we cried. Chris captured moments and makes them come to life. We were able to relive the whole wonderful day through the photos. As mother of the bride you seem to miss so much during that special day because your mind is going 10 different directions. Chris captured moments we didn't realize existed until we viewed the pictures. We interviewed several photographers before choosing one and Chris was by far the best choice. He is personable, professional and his attention to detail is like no other. I have worked with other photographers in the past no one even comes close to Chris! Can't wait to do family pics. Thanks Chris

Since I am not from the area, I found Jordan on Thumbtack while looking for a photographer for 4-generation family pictures. It was a gamble, yes, but we couldn't be happier. She returned phone calls immediately-always a good sign. She took our information, answered questions, gave instructions, and showed up to the venue prepared and happy to be there. I must add that the temp for our outdoor shoot was in the high nineties. Honestly, in the beginning I am not sure any of us were happy to be there! :) Jordan was open to our ideas, and exceled at finding the candid shots that we will treasure for years to come. Her assistant, Nautica, coaxed smiles from a two-year old with ease. We would highly, highly recommend.

I've worked with Denny for years. He's not only created the best images ever, but I've always felt comfortable doing them. I've never been good at modeling and he's actually given me great pointers on how to improve, and every time I get to work with him I improve! I couldn't ask for a better photographer!!! Highly recommended!

    Verified review

    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 (:

    Weddings by Carue was the best choice we could have made for our invitations. Carissa was so patient with me as we finalized the design, making sure I had exactly what I wanted. The final product is beautiful: elegant and classy without being ostentatious, the perfect design to set the tone for our wedding day. The pricing is quite affordable, especially when other area designers are charging a lot more. The service was excellent from start to finish!

      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!

        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!

        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!

        I have been told that my client's eyes "sparkle" in the their photographs. I am mostly a natural light photographer which gives that little twinkle in your eyes! I also travel all around the area to find the best locations for my clients wants and ideas. Some photographers just shoot around their studio or studio only.
