Kenneth was the epitome of professionalism. I was so impressed by his thoroughness and attention to detail during our initial call. We discussed my budget, vision, priorities and he provided several options. On the day of the event Kenneth was punctual and professional. My family and our guests were so pleased with his interaction. He kept the discussion with me fluid during the event and made adjustments as necessary. The final product is SUPERB. I would definitely contact KMc again for future professional video and photography needs. Thank you!!

We've been doing business with David Ward for probably five-or-six years now, and consider our professional relationship with him to be one of our most important partnerships. The quality of his work, and his creativity are of the highest caliber, and it is a true pleasure working with him. The may projects that he has photographed for us has given us a fantastic portfolio of images with which to promote and grow our business. I would certainly give David the highest possible recommendation, and encourage anyone considering working with him to do so.

I have worked with a number of photographers over my 40 year as a clay artist, and Lane Cameron is , by far the best of any of them as far as professionalism and quality of his work. The work was done in and around my studio in suburban Chicago. Lane spent most of an afternoon on the job, and I cannot think of anything that could have been done better. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for quality work done in a skilled and professional manner

Janice is a very skilled photographer. She took the time to interview me to fully understand my goals and offered wonderful suggestions on how to capture the best professional images for my needs. The session was low key and she created an atmosphere that helped me relax. We found a good creative groove that produced some fantastic photos. Her turn around time for post processing was faster than I expected. I would highly recommend Janice to anyone seeking professional head shots.

Working with Ryan was a pleasure and I couldn't be happier with the photos he took. Choosing a wedding photographer can seem like a daunting task and I'm glad I found Ryan. Him and his assistant were helpful and creative when taking the pre-wedding photos with just my groom and me, and at the ceremony and reception they were attentive and present to capture every moment. Ryan made the picture-taking process fun, as well, and instead of feeling stiff and awkward with cameras pointed at us my groom and I were at ease and enjoying ourselves. Can't recommend him enough!

Jack was an absolute pleasure to work with. Although it was only our first time working together, he made me feel at ease from the very start. He is incredibly thoughtful, informative and has fantastic insight and pointers for improving overall posing and expression. Additionally, his turnaround time for edited photos was quick and as promised, which can often be an issue with photographers. I am looking forward to working with him again in the future. I would highly recommend him for portraiture, street style shoots and events.

Ashley did a superb job with our family photos as well as my maternity photos, I could not have asked for a better photographer! She was on time, extremely pleasant to talk to and work with, and even prepared with toys and books to entertain my toddler as well as signs for her to hold! I just saw the photos and I am beyond pleased, it looks like they were taken in a fairy tale! Gorgeous, sparkling family moments and so many of them with a candid feel. My family and I will all treasure these forever. Thank you so so much, Ashley! Will see you next year for round 2 for sure ;)
