As a photographer myself (no longer in the industry) I know exactly what I am looking for and Jack more than surpassed our expectations. After learning that our "regular" photographer for our fashion campaigns (for social media), had unexpectedly left the country, we were in a time crunch :( There were many challenges throughout the shoot, (None related to the photographer) our location which was booked online did not meet expectations, the outdoor location was barren and the day was extra windy etc. These things happen. However Jack's timely and professional demeanor saved the day. He is very skilled at problem solving and knows his stuff. What we thought was a brightly lit space was not, thankfully Jack was prepared to deal with the lighting issues. Once we received our images we could not be more thankful! Most photographers can get decent shots in a perfect location with all the time in the world. But it takes an amazing photographer to turn the worst of situations dealt to him around and have it so you never knew there were any challenges. We are planning to have Jack be our go to photog from now on.

David is an amazing photographer! Open communication before, during and after the shoot. He really listened to what I wanted! Very professional with the latest technology and state of the art studio! I got to view my shots as the shoot was happening to make sure everything was looking how I had wanted! Highly recommend him for any headshot/model shots needed!

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!

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!

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!

I hate being photographed. However this was not the case with Chris. When I walked into his studio I immediately felt comfortable. The resulting photos were better than I expected. I would gladly make the 41 mile one-way trip if I need photography services again!!!!

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!

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.

Can't say enough about Kristen and her skill! My children are not easy to photograph. Kristen was able to keep their attention, she was also able to make them laugh to capture real smiles! Thank you so much! Can't wait for our next session!

I have mostly dealt in the past with the big multi site photography studios. I needed a job done on short notice and was steered towards Ally T. Photography. It ended up being one of the best decisions I have made in some time. Big studio quality and personal care. The 5 star rating is only because they don’t have 6.

About

I think that my work is more unique in the fact that I love shooting with a large aperture. This means that my photos have a distinct focal point and you can notice that immediately. I also have the ability to capture moments that might otherwise go unnoticed by everyone else.
