From the moment Allen and I first connected, I could tell he was professional, dedicated, and committed to capturing all my ideas for our family photo shoot, and his passion for his work was also very apparent. Allen and I first spoke by phone to discuss ideas, and he followed up with me to confirm our plans as our date grew closer. Our family of three had limited dates for the shoot and I wanted an outdoor session, so Allen was kind enough to not only monitor the weather very closely, but he also provided us with two dates in case the first one got rained out. It was very considerate of him to dedicate two weekend evenings to a family photo shoot!
When the date arrived, Allen was very prepared and very patient as we arrived later than planned. He had some great ideas in mind since we were shooting at several locations downtown, so it was an adventure that lasted all evening! Allen worked so well with our 5 year old to keep her engaged and he laughed along with the rest of us as she played, ran, and sometimes even posed for pictures!
As we ventured around downtown to the different locations, we found a few unplanned areas and shot there also. I had requested both candid and posed photos, and Allen did a wonderful job capturing pretty much every single moment throughout the evening! He had his camera ready at all times and it was such a joy to see our photo gallery with all the moments he captured.
The gallery was ready for us to review by the next morning and even included a few retouched photos just to give us an idea of what they would look like. We were given over 500 shots to chose from! We will receive all of them in downloadable format, 20 of them which we chose will be retouched, and I will be using Allen's photo lab for prints as he does not inflate the price like many photographers do.
If you're looking for a true professional that is sincerely and passionately working to meet his client's needs, then please choose Allen as your photographer. His customer service is outstanding, his pricing is reasonable, his skills and creativity are unprecedented, and he is such a joy to work with!
