Karolina photographed our daughter's 1st birthday party. She was professional and punctual, and captured the moments of our party perfectly. The photos were very candid and 'in the moment', as we had requested. She also took some family photos before the event that were lovely. Would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an excellent event photographer!

Excellent experience with Andy last weekend shooting my son's rehearsal dinner. He was friendly and receptive to our needs. Andy was very professional, prompt and I enjoyed working with him. I highly recommend Val and Andy for your future photography 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 ;)

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!

This photographer was everything a client could ask for. I hosted a fashion show and hired Love Signatures as one of my photographers. He was there before the time I requested him to be there. He was very professional and thorough in the photos he took of the event. He got behind the scenes as well as photos of the whole show. I would definitely recommend and hire him again!! He's exceptional!!!

Long story short: Rob did an amazing job on our engagement photos! We felt very comfortable with him right from the start, so it was a great experience for us. Especially since he took his time and didn't hurry us around like other photographers sometimes do. In addition to setting us up for shots he also listened to our suggestions and let us do our thing, so the photos turned out great. Rob also did a great job on editing our favorites. Overall it was a great experience and we will definitely go back.

We contracted Jerry to do a photo shoot of our office (environmental shots, head shots, and group photos). Jerry was here on time, set up quickly, and was ready to go. He was professional and personable and took a number of photos. He stressed that he would keep shooting until we were satisfied, no extra costs. The shoot overall was great! After the shoot, it was only one day turnaround before we had the images both online and on CD. I couldn't recommend him more for any small business.

We used Sean for our family get together. It was great because our photographer backed out at the last minute and Sean came in and saved the day! We had our pics back in 2 days which was super fast! We would use him again for sure!

Brigette is such a talented photographer!!! I feel so lucky that we were able to work with her for our maternity photos, I have never seen better photos of myself with such beautiful color and light! Her unique vision and passion captured my love for my growing baby bump in a style that reflected me and my husband so well. The location she suggested was a dream and the background in the pictures is seriously breath taking. I am usually pretty shy around the camera but felt so comfortable with her, she has a really relaxing energy which made it really easy to be myself and have fun! I will cherish my maternity photos taken by Brigette for the rest of my life and look forward to her photographing my my son when he is born in a few months!

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.
