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 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!!

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!!

Bruce and Paula were amazing! They were very helpful with my first professional photography session. They helped me pick out what outfits would be best and were great with guiding me into the various poses. Plan on using them for my next session

Garrison has done photo/design work for me over the last three years and it has been an extremely rewarding experience for me. Whether it has been photographing my artwork and my wife's jewelry designs or designing posters using his "mad photoshop skills" Garrison is my go to photographer. And did I mention the stunning artwork? I already own over 50 of his fine art photographs and they are among my most prized possessions. The guy is a true artist who knows how to get things done right the first time.

Katie from Picturesque Photograpghy was excellent to work with! Our son wanted to look at anything but the camera yet she got amazing pictures that highlight our family. She had a lot of patience with us and that helped me be relaxed and have fun with our session. We got proofs back very quickly and I'm in love with them! I highly recommend Picturesque Photography to anyone!

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.

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.
