Dan and Lydia photographed our engagement shoot and wedding. They met with us well in advance to discuss the contract and our visions for our big day. They were professional and fun, offering ideas and suggestions while listening to what we wanted. They put us at ease when we were nervous, and were there when we needed them throughout the entire process, answering emailed questions and phone calls immediately. On our wedding day, they were involved in everything they could be, wanting to capture every moment. The drone photos at our ceremony were SPACTACULAR, and our guests were undisturbed throughout it all. We chose to have a short video including short clips throughout the day. The direction they provided to us, plus the editing and sharing of the photos and video were more than we could possibly ask for. We would recommend their services to anyone, and were so happy to work with them at such an important moment in our lives! We couldn't have asked for anything better!

Julie helped me out with my debut novel and did so in a span of two weeks. I was pleased with the manner of editing including grammar checks, word usage/choice, and clarity needs/additions of the story line. I intend to have her edit future novels of mine, and would recommend her to others as well.

The guys were amazing to work with! As a never been on camera "actor" they were very patient and helpful in directing what I needed to do to achieve our goal as a company. If I ever need videography again, they will be my first call!

I recently heard Dr. Patterson speak at a conference and I found his perspectives on Mental Conditioning and Self-Esteem enhancement highly informative, inspiring, and uplifting. I am a professional sales person and I have a tendency to get a bit deflated when I’m not accomplishing my goals at a pace I’ve set for myself. However, I've found that when I use some of the techniques and mental conditioning that Dr. Patterson speaks about, I am able to invigorate my mental status to a positive place, get back on track, and move forward in my business endeavors and life in general. I look forward to attending future conferences and listening to the powerful message that Dr. Drayton Patterson is giving us. S. Brian, MBA

Amy edited an important presentation for me. The presentation was regarding the budget for a special project. It contained detailed numbers that had to be correct. Amy did an excellent job. She was easy to work with and completed the work on a tight schedule.

Jaime Karakachos has provided exceptional transcription and copy editing for me over the last several years, as well as proofreading and much needed feedback when I ventured I began to write longer articles and fictional books. She's a one of a kind, with a great personality, and superior skills. I don't know where I'd be without her.

About

I focus on designing for my clients. I take their vision and make it a reality. My style of designs are very different from one another based on that fact alone. When it comes to my photo booth, I customize the entire look to fit within their decor for their wedding. I make it so much more than just picking a background color...we also customize the props to how tacky or classy they want their booth to be. I get to be creative! Every job is a new challenge to develop myself more as a designer. It's exciting to approach each day and it be different from the last.

I gave Marianna the daunting task of several grants, resumes, and cover letters to proofread and edit for my students. Not only did she communicate professionally and with tact, she made sure to send any changes first for consideration before said changes became permanent. I would absolutely suggest any clients looking for a committed and precise editor, to talk to Marianna! Thank you again!

I place a high emphasis on Customer Service, versus profitability. I stay current on the many changes going on in this business, which is very important to the customer. I have noticed that many other providers may have had excellent training in the past, but now they are behind on current trends and strategies.
