I spent a long time researching wedding photographers in my area and was hit hard by jz studio's work. After having the opportunity to meet, it was clear how their personality and passion matched their talent, these guys are a force! On our big day they were focused, professional and attentive behind the lens and so much fun during all the bits in between. Group shots were super smooth and efficient, then individual shots with my wife were just a blast. Photography was a big part of the day for us and having the talent and personality of Philip and Zack entrusted with that responsibility was a dream.
Jack was beyond professional! My now wife and I hired Jack to do our city hall and post city hall wedding photos. He was flexible and very easy to work with. He took so many great shots and his work all proved to be beyond incredible. He was at our wedding early and stayed as long as we needed him.
I needed a professional headshot photo in a short timeframe. Since I never had professional photos done before and had no idea how to find a good professional in order to help me out, I was initially relatively intimidated by the process. Looking up the websites from several photographers, most were only advertising wedding and recreational photography services. Robert put me at ease from the very beginning, showing me some sample headshots he took and explaining me the whole process as well as what I could expect. During all of my interactions with Robert, he has been very professional. Also, it is obvious that he is passionate by what he is doing. He overall did exceed my original expectations, delivering some excellent headshots in a very short timeframe!
Kelly did our engagement session as well as wedding photos. I think the pictures she gave us on a CD turned out awesome!! She was very nice and even hand delivered our wedding favors to us. She got great shots of a wide variety of people at our wedding. We would definitely use her again!!
Daughters wedding, did from start to finish, lots of photos, worked with bride on specific photo requests. We needed more time in the day.
David photographed our wedding, and we couldn't be happier with the experience! He shot all aspects of the wedding - from the pre-ceremony shots in the church, up until the reception. David was professional and respected the technical considerations that our church had about photography, without sacrificing the special moments as we exchanged our vows. He also was able to capture important candid and emotional highlights from our dinner and reception. David is confident and calm while working, which also put us at ease. We have recommended him to all our friends!
I hired Jonathon as my Wedding Photographer which is next July, but we did a Family photoshoot with him this April and the pictures turned out beautiful!!!! I am beyond happy with the results and he is also very professional and sweet! I highly recommend working with Jonathon, he puts a lot of thought and effort into his work. I can't wait for him to shoot my wedding!
Kayla did my daughter's college grad pictures and my wedding pictures in 2015. She is did fantastic work and we could not be happier with all of the photos!! We will be using her again in the future.
Angie is a amazing photographer and super personable. On our big day, she made all of our friends/ family feel comfortable and got some great images. From the intimate shots of us getting ready to party time on the dance floor, Angie got it all! Our wedding photos are simply beautiful and it is was exactly what we wanted. We are so thankful to have these memories for years to come!
Michelle was our wedding photographer in August, 2013. She photographed the wedding and reception, as well as the party the day before. The photographs are amazing, and she had them edited and ready to go quickly. I am especially impressed with Michelle's knack for capturing moments that could never be staged or planned. Michelle's pleasant personality combined with her exceptional skills and professionalism make her an excellent choice for a photographer. I highly recommend her services.
Jimmy photographed our daughter's wedding last September. the pictures are amazing - all of the traditional shots you would expect, but so much more. He had some very unique ideas for special photos of the wedding couple, the rings, the venue, etc. Jimmy is so personable that everyone felt comfortable around him. He mingled all day and evening and we have candid shots of every guest and the wedding party. We would highly recommend him for any event!
Tierney took my bridal shower and wedding photos and I could not have been happier! She was there all day and caught so many great moments that I did not even realize happened! We worked together in advance to make sure she knew moments/photos I wanted to catch also. She went to scope out the venue in advance as well so she knew what photos would be great to take where and the layout as well as lighting of the venue. She put so much extra work into making sure I was happy with the photos I got and everyone who saw my wedding photos commented on how fantastic our photographer and the photos were.
Marc is a wonderful photographer with a creative mind to find the best poses for anyone. He loves to work with nature and the natural light, which makes the best quality photos! He is also very accommodating, whether it's offering his own yard for a photo session or coming directly to you! We have had multiple sessions with him and his photos cover my house! He is extremely professional and patient with my kids. He captures their most natural expressions and smiles by literally getting down to their levels and lying on the ground/floor with them! I would and do absolutely recommend Marc Hanson to anyone looking to get picture done!
My son was in a wedding that she photographed. She was fantastic.
Alexis was my wedding photographer in 2013. She captured every precious moment, from the venue , bride and groom, family and friends, and every meaningful thoughtful detail. Lexi gave me that extra verbal boost of confidence a bride needs to hear on her day, she kept me calm, helped me change dresses and encouraged me to take some creative shots, which I look back on now and cherish! Her presence was barely noticed by the guests, she took some really great action. So grateful Lexi was available to capture my beautiful wedding. I now have the joyful and beautiful memories through the pictures she took that will last forever! Excellent professional and personable photographer!
Shatoria is an amazing photographer, she has done our family photos the past two years and looking forward to have her as our wedding photographer!
Maxwell Creative has been amazing to work with! His creativity and eye for photography is wonderful! As a fellow photographer I have hired Jon to work quite a few weddings with me. Jon is always on time, friendly, and works hard! His pictures are amazing quality and he has an abundance of equipment to make sure the job is done well! I will most definitely be working with Jon in the future!
Finding a great photographer who will work with you, edit their schedule to fit your needs, provide you with a photo disk that has a good rate is un-heard of. It is risky to find a new photographer that will deliver your vision and capture your memories the way you believe they should be captured. After a few good recommendations and some trust We gave it a go (Christmas card photo-shoot). First off, the photos turned out amazing. They were original and fun, and we had a great time during the shoot. Tracy was extremely fun and easy to work with, and we knew we wanted her for our future events. Tracy exceeded our expectations in every way. She was on time (more so than the family and friends involved!) and she was on top of the whole experience. She had a phone meeting the night prior to our photo shoot, which most photographers do not do to ensure that we were good and to go over some of her ideas and to ensure our expectations have not changed.(Tracy also do a weather check and pre walked the location to ensure lighting) Tracy never stopped working and was a consummate professional the whole time. She always made taking photos fun, and I have heard countless compliments from people who have used her for weddings and engagement photos, about how much they liked our photographer. The photos so far have been spectacular. Once again, our expectations have been exceeded. Photos by Tracy costs around the standard rate for professional photography but you get so much more. Bottom line: Tracy is highly professional, talented, and experienced photographer that continues to exceed expectations and work to freeze life's moments in interesting and artistic ways. I was thoroughly impressed with the services, and I would hands down recommend her for any event that needs a photographer.
Scott was great! During the wedding and reception, most of the time I didn't even know he was there taking pictures. He blended in well with the guests. He was real fun to work with and made you feel real comfortable. When we got the pictures......OMG!!!! They were so beautiful!!! Before we knew it, 3 hours had gone by, because we were looking at the pictures over and over again. We were so impressed with his work. We would recommend him to anybody!!

There are a lot of great photographers out there. Most everyone professional is good at what they do. I go that extra mile to build rapport with my clients. I love building relationships before the event even starts. This leads to bigger, brighter smiles and more comfortable relationship the day of the wedding.
