We found Winterlyn through a general Google search, which brought us to Thumbtack. Out of the other photographers that we were matched with, Winterlyn had all of the qualities in her portfolio that we were looking for! We wanted to be sure that whoever we hired to photograph our wedding would be a professional and we could trust them to capture all the special moments from one of the biggest days of our lives!! From the time that we first messaged Winterlyn, she was professional and extremely responsive to all of our questions. A couple weeks before our wedding she sent a checklist of photo options, and was open to any ideas that we had as well. The day of the wedding, Winterlyn arrived early and stayed past the time scheduled to ensure that she had captured all of the photos on the checklist (and more)!! A couple days later we received a "sneak peek" of photos from our wedding, via Facebook. We were ecstatic at how great they turned out! After working with Winterlyn and seeing the quality of her photos, we would definitely recommend her to anyone who is looking at hiring a photographer for any event!

Randy did an outstanding job for us photographing a couple for a magazine profile. We needed three shots and honestly had a hard time choosing the three because Randy shot so many great ones. He has a great eye for composition and makes every shot interesting. Plus, he obviously made the subjects feel comfortable because that's how they come across in the photographs. I wish we could hire photographers like Randy more often!

Mr. Bryant is a pleasure to deal with! He has shot product for our website for the last 10+ years. He has also done head shots for our employees as well. The rates he charges compared to the photography he delivers makes for an excellent value. I highly recommend Adrian Bryant Photography for any all all that are looking to work with a professional, affable, and affordable photographer.

Verified review

Jessica is an amazing photographer! Her pictures are stunning, and she is very easy to work with - she has great ideas and she is willing to hear what you like/want. We are so pleased with our maternity pictures, and today we had the best time working with her and our newborn in our home. We plan to contact her in a few months (and many times after that) to continue to shoot our family! Can't recommend her enough!

I love my career! I tell your story from a wedding to a birthday party or whatever is needed. I pay attention to detail from the decor, invites, outside and inside of a place or hall. I want to make everyone's special day to be his/her story. I enjoy what I do. I love photographing people, places, pets, cars and the list goes on. It is your story; I want to make it unique and about you and your event! I am for hire.
