Kimberly Edwards is a consummate professional, with a delightful and spunky personality to boot. She is always prepared to follow through in full with the vision you may have discussed beforehand for your session, but also ready and willing to improvise. The quality of her work is outstanding. I have used her personally for lifestyle and family portraits and have also seen firsthand the amazing images she's captured at friends' weddings. Highly recommend!

Amber Wolf is an excellent photographer! Amber recently photographed our wedding and the pictures she took were fabulous!! Amber is a true professional and extraordinary artist, Amber's suggestions about photo shots, and professional knowledge about the use of outside light was exceptional. Amber was a pleasure to work with from the point of our introduction on line, to many email conversations, our meeting face to face prior the wedding and simply put, Amber put me at ease and made sure to photograph all that was important and then some. Amber is quick to respond, and very patient! Amber forwarded our photos so quickly, I was so surprised to receive them as early as we did..If you are looking for a photographer for your engagement photo shoot, wedding, or any important event, do not hesitate to contact Amber Wolf!

Mr. Molony was amazing! He showed up to the event with plenty of time to spare and took the time to get to know us and our guests as he got both candid and formal photographs. He exhibited utter patience and kindness as he adapted to the unpredictable behavior of our 2 year son and 2 year old nephew- as their behavior during the event is probable cause to the term "terrible 2's"! Thank you so much for your impeccable work ethic and for capturing our event so that we may always have photographic memories of our special day! I absolutely cannot wait to see the final pictures!!

I've had many occasions to work with April Renae in a variety of contexts and I can't recommend her highly enough. I'm a working musician and have not only hired April to do promo shots for at least two of my bands, headshots for myself and personal portraits, I've also performed at wedding events where she is the primary photographer. Whether as client or fellow hired staff, I've only ever seen her carry herself on the job with exacting professionalism. As her client I can say that her rates are always reasonable; she's got a quick turnaround time for both thumbnails and final photos; she's very responsive to feedback and will work with the client's conception, within the limits of the technical; and she will only deliver high quality work. I'm always excited to call April for my next project, and I usually can't wait to see what photos she'll deliver at the end of it.

Randy Schmidt is not just any photographer. He is an artist. He has taken many years of Christmas pictures for us involving our 4 hyper dogs and yet, with his calm energy, he was always able to capture us all in an unforced, creative "pose". He will be famous one day in the very near future, so I recommend you book him ASAP!

Melissa is an absolute artist! She did our family's pictures as well as our son's senior pictures. She has a beautiful eye not only for location and pose, but every last detail. She made a stressful occasion so much fun! In fact, we had so much fun that we forgot we were having our pictures taken! The end product was beautiful and worth so much more than she charged us! She deserved so much more for the beautiful pictures she produced!

I have worked with Carlos twice - once for an individual portrait shoot, once for a shoot with my entire band - and in both cases I couldn't have been more pleased, both with the relaxed, collaborative process and with the stunning final images. Carlos is smart, creative, professional, has a great eye for detail, and works with you to achieve exactly the look you need for your project. This is a consummate artist with a truly unique vision, and I highly recommend working with him.

Verified review

Josh is not only one of the most talented, but truly generous photographers I've ever met. My colleague met Josh in San Francisco and told him about a musician empowerment project my nonprofit PeaceTones (peacetones.org) was running in Nairobi, Kenya. We would be there for one month working with musicians in three different Nairobi slums, meeting with partners, contacts and local musicians; hosting legal, tech, and business workshops for aspiring artists as well as two peace concerts; and auditioning local musicians to participate in an online artists discovery competition. Josh immediately connected with the project going above and beyond to pay his own way to Kenya to help photograph us. As a small nonprofit, it's hard to express how impactful it was to have a professional photographer capturing our work. Josh has an incredibly thoughtful eye and a way of making people feel comfortable and natural which is key when working in nonprofit work and, arguably, any photography. He is humble and extremely attentive to the needs of who he's working with, even drawing inspiration from that. It was a pleasure and honor working with Josh and I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone and everyone.

I hired Melissa to photograph the birth of my daughter. She had a copy of my birth plan, and knew exactly what I was expecting the process to be, including what her role was. Due to certain complications, the original plan had to be abandoned last minute, and I was not in any condition to consult with a photographer about it. I do not necessarily remember Melissa's presence during my labor, nor during the birth. She did not distract me or the medical staff in any way, but I know she was there because when my daughter was just a few days old, a preview of our photographs arrived. Melissa photographed the pain and fear of my labor, the miracle of the delivery, and the overwhelming joy of holding my baby for the very firsr time. Every moment seemed to be captured in a natural, unique and artistic light. Somehow, I even look GOOD in some of the pictures (haha) She did such a great job that I've actually hired her twice more to do newborn and family portraits. She has a unique gift and more than anything I appreciated how unintrusively she

Tricia is absolutely wonderful to work with, especially for those who might be new to having their portraits taken. I've already recommended her to two of my friends in the city. I hired Tricia for some individual and couple's graduation portraits admittedly extremely last minute, but she was absolutely able to accommodate our very hectic schedule and helped us plan the time and location that would get us the best images possible. My partner and I have never had photographs individually or together, and Tricia walked us through so many different options - giving us way more of her time and expertise than I ever expected. She also was so very patient with us and we'll definitely see if she's available for any further work!
