We were really lucky to have Jonathan do our wedding this past summer. He actually wasn't our main photographer. We had hired our main photographer months prior to the wedding, with a 2nd photographer to be available for the wedding and reception for 4 hours as part of our contract. Well the day before the wedding, we get a message that our 2nd photographer got injured and would now not be available for our wedding. And with such short notice, our main photographer was having trouble finding a replacement. (Not blaming our main photographer at all since he did everything he could to make up for it). So the morning of the wedding, I just happened to casually mention to my bridesmaids that we had lost our 2nd photographer. And coincidentally, one of my bridesmaids mentioned being related to Jonathan, who did wedding photography. She called him right on the spot, and despite living over an hour away he agreed to be our replacement. I am so, so thankful that Jonathan was able to come. He was so nice and approachable and took beautiful pictures. And after looking at his pictures, my only regret is that I didn't have him there to do pictures with us at the Botanic Gardens before the ceremony.

Sarah was such a great photographer for us to have at our wedding! We had a small reception and a few bumps along the way and she really helped guide us in the progress and making sense of the madness. We would definitely recommend Inspired Eye to anyone and hope to work with her again.

Ashely took my engagement pictures for me and I really like them! She has been patient explaining how the light, angle, place working for the photos to us. Also she provided a lot of creative ideas for us to post our guestures. She was really understandable when we had to reschedule the time to do the pictures. I have received so many likes and compliments on my engagement pictures. Many many thanks to Ashley! I'll def recommend her to my friends who have the needs to take engagement/wedding pictures.

Melanie was my photographer for my wedding last June. She did an absolutely beautiful job. She was there at my rehearsal and then first thing the morning of my wedding through the end of the reception. We are delighted with the pictures - there are so many moments she captured! I highly recommend using Melanie / Modern Life Photography!

Do yourself a favor and hire Jeff as your photographer. I hired him for my wedding, and he was very professional, punctual, and knew what he was doing. He showed up right when he said he would and got right to work taking pictures. Jeff was really a lot of fun, made me and my guests laugh and smile. He was bossy in a great way-gave us clear orders on where to stand in order to get all the photos squeezed into the little time that we had. He's a real pleasure to work with. He called me a week before the wedding just to check in and make sure everything was on track, which I appreciated. He got my pictures to me within a week, and they turned out great.

I've worked with Michele several times. She has officially become our family photographer lol. She first photographed my small courthouse wedding and did a fantastic job. So I knew when my first child was born that I'd want her to photograph my baby as a newborn and her holiday pictures. Michele is very easy to work with, professional, shows up on time, etc... She is fantastic at recreating photos I find on pinterest and putting her own twist on them, but she also always comes with a ton of her own ideas! I highly recommend her for your next family event or milestone!

Jennyfer photographed our wedding ceremony (before, during and after) this past February (2017). She is FABULOUS! Yes, there are many vendors to choose from, but what makes her stand out is her responsiveness, ability, eye for detail, creativity, cost and personality. She makes herself very available for questions; she took the time to get to know us in advance and to understand what was important to us. She has great ability, and a wonderful eye for capturing the most important moments. Her creativity is one of her great assets. She is also quite flexible; I had a number of poses, shots and angles that I was interested in and she came very prepared to achieve these objectives. She was remembering all the thing that were important to me, that as a nervous and pre-occupied bride I couldn't! She is friendly, kind and and has a very caring and sweet personality. It was obvious to me that this is not just "work" for her; she seems to truly love what she does and it shows. She is unobtrusive while working, and definitely made us feel comfortable throughout the day. Her pricing is very reasonable, and the turnaround time to receive our photos was earlier than expected. I strongly recommend Jennyfer - you will not be disappointed!

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!

Rick took our engagement and wedding pictures back in 2011. We called him again recently to have our family pictures taken, now that we have two little ones added to our lives. Rick is very accommodating, listens to our suggestions and really takes his time to ensure the best pictures are taken. He has wonderful ideas for pictures and pays attention to the details. We have known Rick for four years now and he has captured three of our biggest life milestones. I'm thankful for Rick and so glad we trusted him to photograph these important times in our lives.

Excellent photographer! We have used Cheerful Heart Studios for many years now and would never use anyone else; we had our engagement, wedding, and baby announcement pictures all done with CHS. Dirvelys isn't just a photographer, she's an artist with an eye for creativity! We highly recommend CHS! Cheerful Hearts has very competitive pricing.

Bryan is an amazing photographer, videographer, professional and person in general. He was both our videographer and photographer for our wedding. He did a wonderful job and I cherish the memories that he captured. Bryan is very talented in his work. He captures the shots and angles that you would not think of. My husband and I also asked Bryan to take photos of our son as well as the other children in our family. He is wonderful with children and can make even the toughest child laugh and smile. He captured all of their personalities throughout the entire shoot. I would highly recommend Bryan to anyone of my family or friends to meet their photography needs! All of our photographs are outstanding and you can tell how passionate he is about his work and making sure he captures those special moments!

Karla was the photographer for our Wedding Shower and she did an amazing job! She took beautiful candid pictures of me and my fiance, and even took pictures of the gorgeous tables and decor that we had set up. She was professional, so much fun to work with and catered to our needs. She shared her edited images with us within a couple days and they were gorgeous! Great experience and I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a quality photographer.
