Had a wonderful experience - Gorgeous pictures - we wanted something tradition but creative that captured our Sprit as a couple. Loved that she came to the dinner rehearsal and got to know the family and the wedding party so that she could get better idea of the needed pictures of the event. Brittany & Phillip

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.

Cody was wonderful for our engagement and wedding photos! He put us and our guests at ease (and I am not normally comfortable in front of a camera, let alone under the stress of all of the last minute things that pop up during a wedding!). He stayed in touch with us regularly from the day we decided to hire him up to the wedding, and seemed to really understand what our goals were for the overall aesthetic of the wedding. Right from the start he was enthusiastic about our ideas for a library shoot for our engagement photos and our wedding at Hunter Mansion. He perfectly captured the elements of each location that drew us to them with his photography. The biggest thing I wanted from the wedding (aside from pictures of the ceremony and the shots with our families) were candid images of our guests during our reception as we had arranged for a murder mystery that I knew would have a lot of great moments that I would probably miss in all of the chaos. He captured those moments wonderfully without intruding in any way. He also captured some wonderful images of the beautiful flowers a friend of my mother-in-law designed for us. The pictures are beautiful and exactly what I had hoped for. Aside from his talents as a photographer, Cody is great to work with in general. He was friendly, communicative, and helpful even with things that weren't really part of his job at all - case in point, none of the groomsmen knew how to tie a tie, but he helped them all with that. He took a lot of stress off of what would have been a very nerve-wracking day. My husband and I are immensely grateful for everything he did for us, from the engagement photos all the way through to the wedding.

My emphasis in my Masters Degree in Mass Communication was based in photography, and James is more than an expert! He takes the time to ask you questions and he listens carefully to your answers. I couldn't have had a more expert and very pleasant photographer! I'll definitely use his services again!

Kaitlin did an amazing job! We are not used to having our pictures taken, but she made us feel very comfortable and we are in LOVE with our photos. The angles and lighting are perfect! She gave us great direction if the way we were standing didn't look right or if my hair was placed poorly. We highly recommend Picturesque Photography & can't wait to see our wedding photos!

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.

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!
