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!

Jonathan photographed an event that my company hosted at a local high school that included two parts -- a student demonstration of our online learning program in a computer lab , and a formal presentation of certificates and a series of guest speakers. He was wonderful to work with, showed up early to our event, delivered proofs on time, and produced high quality work. He took charge of making sure we got certain shots that I had requested, and had a good eye for shots that were well composed and interesting. I would highly recommend him.

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.

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!

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.

Dave helped me out and grabbed some amazing football shots in some pretty bad conditions. His "pay it forward" attitude will stay with me as I attend more of these sporting events with my family. I will definitely keep his contact info handy for my family and others.
