Gary Walters is an amazing photographer! I’ve had the opportunity to review his work from numerous shoots – wedding, engagement, and general subject matter - and his ability to capture a moment and amplify its meaning is truly exceptional. Gary doesn’t just document an event – his photographs vividly convey the precious emotions occurring in real time. His eye for composition is unparalleled – fresh and unique – and having him as your photographer will guarantee your photos will turn out exceptional! I love his work.

Hello. My name is Gregory Hitchcock. My wife Kelly and I were married in Boston MA in September 2013 and we were luckily enough to have Jeff be our photographer. Words cannot describe how pleased we were with our images! The collection we received did an amazing job of telling the story of our special day. The collection was a combination of journalistic, posed, and artistic images that that perfectly recorded our memories. Our wedding day contained many challenges that Jeff had to deal with. We live in Iowa, but got married in Boston, so all planning had to be done in advance without being to visit the locations before hand. Furthermore, our wedding was traditional cantonese, thus there were dozens of details, events, and facets of the day that are not present in a typical American wedding. Jeff covered them all with ease, not missing one beat, and always maintaining a warm friendly demeanor. My wife's family is very large. We were concerned that the various family portraits would take too long to capture, however Jeff had a simple and too the point strategy for arranging, posing, and capturing each group in the quickest way possible. Also complicating the day was the fact that the day had several locations throughout downtown and suburban Boston. We devised a plan before hand in order to meet and surpass this risky condition and came out at the end of the day on time and with amazing images! We truly love the images that Jeff captured and highly recommend him to anyone seeking passionate wedding photography.

She was great and extremely friendly with everyone involved in our wedding. If we ever need a photographer for an event again she will be our first call/email.

Eric & Andrea Haley were fantastic photographers to work with throughout the whole wedding process! They were very professional, easy to work with, had excellent communication with us and were truly interested in making our wedding day memorable! Additionally, they designed custom and unique save the dates and thank you cards at a reasonable price. I highly recommend them as wedding photographers if you are looking for a personalized photography experience.

I am a professional wedding photographer and have assisted Candace many many times over the course of several years. I've witnessed her work, first hand. She is consistently on time, reliable, helpful, and extremely competent. She has a long list of happy clients. I know for a fact that she uses the best equipment available to professionals. I also know that she routinely bends over backwards for her clients, but she's only human and can only work with what she's given. As a wedding photographer, I know that it is up to the client to ensure that the wedding day timeline allows for hiccups during the day, not the photographer. If a client opts not to have a wedding planner, they run the risk of the day being disorganized. Photographers are photographers, not wedding planners or personal assistants. The client is responsible for making sure guests/family are where they are supposed to be, when they are supposed to be there. In short, I can't say enough wonderful things about Candace. In fact, if a potential wedding client inquires about my services and I'm booked on that day, I immediately refer them to Candace Hart. I encourage anyone who reads these reviews to ask to see any images in question. I have no doubt Candace's work will speak for itself.

Tom Ruzinok Photography has done several photography sessions for our family. First he did photos of our first grandson and they were incredible. He was patient and brought several age appropriate props to the shoot. The second session he did for us was to take family photos of our entire family and then many individual groups. He was enjoyable to work with and willing to let us give opinions on locations and groups. The final session that Tom did for our family was for our son’s graduation photos. He spent a long time with Tyler and had some great suggestions for different settings and shots. Tyler enjoyed working with him. Tom is a joy to work with, prompt with his proofs and extremely prompt with the final product. We will definitely use Tom again in the future with other family photos. Todd & Angie Hibben, Oswego


My name is Lee Harris. I work as a night life photographer for the Riverfront Times, and I am also the resident photographer at SOL Lounge in the Central West End. I have been shooting weddings for a few years as well. When I shoot weddings, I have a partner. It works so much easier with two photographers. Even with the two of us, I guarantee our fees are cheaper than anyone else you will find in St. Louis. I don't stop at party pics and weddings. I am available for any type of professional photography that you may have in mind. Family portraits, head shots, senior pictures, special events, food photography - you name it, and I can shoot it for a very reasonable price. - Lee Harris

We specialize in the creation and marketing of panoramic photography. We have done many sporting events of national significance such as super bowls, rose bowls, NBA finals and all star games, World Series, and final four. Many of our panorama images are of collegiate stadiums; most of which are in the big ten conference but some others as well. We also have many major city skylines images and national parks. Large group photos is another of our specialties, and our 5 high, semi-circular staging is capable of holding over 300 people, and getting good identifiable images of everyone in the photo! In addition to specializing in panoramic photography, we also do sports action, normal portraiture, and have done photos for 2 swimsuit calendars. We have a complete photo lab and picture framing shop on site at our business location in 816 Dennison Drive, Champaign, IL. We have been in business at this location for over 12 years, and in the photography business for over 31 years! Panorama photos taken by Brad LaPayne have been published in several newspapers and magazines, including the New York Times newspaper and in Time magazine. Many photos have been used in corporate reports, calendars, billboards, websites and for posters. You may find our photos as wall decor in your favorite sports bar or restaurant as well.


The next season is right around the corner. Why not let me get outside, and let me "capture the moment" of your family and you? My sessions cost $75.00 for a family of 5 or less, and once the photo shoot is finished, you will receive a disc with the enhancement photos, as well as the photo release for you to print at your convenience. I will do weddings, too!
