I cannot praise Ivan highly enough. I needed an author photo for my novel & I HATE being photographed. Ivan was as kind & intuitive as he was professional and helped me through the process. By the end, I was actually having fun. He is a gifted portrait photographer with a background in fashion photography. He was wonderfully patient in guiding me through the process of emailing photos to my publisher. I highly recommend him!
Jeremiah was a pleasure to work with from our very first contact by email. I researched photographers available to photograph our 40th wedding anniversary vow renewal extensively. I loved the work in his portfolio and the finished product lived up to all of my expectations. We were a small group of 9 people but wanted every minute of our celebration photographed. Jeremiah was present for the entire 6 hour celebration and just melted into our small family group. At the same time, he was very professional and we often forgot he was there taking photos of everything. I would hire him again in a heartbeat!
Leo had a photograph package that perfectly fit our wedding needs. He was early to arrive at the wedding and took over a thousand photos over the course of 6 hours. He was well organized and got shots of everything we wanted. The usb of all the prints in color and black and white arrived a week after the event. I would recommend Leo if you are looking for an affordable option.
Chuck is a master black belt portrait photographer. Chuck successfully captured and conveyed my personal image and brand like no one else ever has. Chuck taught me how to pose and was a delight to work with. I strongly recommend Chuck and already have to my good friends and business associates.
Keith is an awesome photographer, who did a great job with my son's cradle ceremony. On the day of the photoshoot, he was very patient with getting the right shot. The high quality photos are realistic. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a high quality photos, with a photographer who will give you personal attention, and make a genuine effort to meet your need.
My husband and I had Steve out to our home to take a family portrait shortly before the birth of our son. Steve was prompt, professional and friendly. He took time to set up each shot just right and put us at ease. The final product was lovely - a great selection of posed and candid pictures. We'll certainly be going back to him for new portraits once our son is a little older!
Gordon Webster is a pleasure to work with. He photographed an assembly with multiple performances and captured people and moments extraordinarily well using both color and black and white as we requested. I would definitely use him again.
I have used Shawn Tomkinson to take both my daughters senior portrait photos. I couldn't be happier with both sessions. Shawn has the uncanny ability to take breathtaking photos without being "in your face". Shawn captured the inner beauty of my daughters as well as their outer beauty. Shawn is an amazing photographer. She succeeds in getting just the right photos by taking her time, being extremely professional yet very personable, utilizing any and all kinds of light, doing black and white photos. I have also seen her wedding portfolio, which is chock full of some of the most breathtaking and beautiful brides. Shawn captures the personality and spirit of anyone that she photographs. I'm so pleased with the work Shawn has done and I can't wait, and I fully intend, to use her services again. I would recommend Shawn to anyone who wants beautiful, captivating and natural pictures....you will not regret it!
Great family pictures at Wakefield lake the candids that were black-and-white were a great surprise!
I have had the pleasure to use Chris Sargent's photography in several contexts in my writing and music career. He used his artistic eye and surrealistic tone to create an incredible banner for my short story website, as well as capturing a more conventional portrait for the "picture of the author" for the sleeve of a novel I published. He's also great in a live-action context, and has taken dynamic live pictures of my rock band in less-than-ideal lighting conditions. And he's also supplied moody and emotive photography for each single of a recording project I am involved with. Just an excellent all around photographer, artist, and professional. And an insane value for the quality of work.
Tom took some photos of my husband's band at a recent gig and processed them in black and white. I tried to upload a couple of the pictures here and was not able but the images are striking-thank you Tom!
We purchased the Grow With Me photo package for our twin boys. This included a newborn sitting, 6 month, and 1 year. So far we have had newborn and 6 month, 1 year will be in November. We absolutely love every single photo she takes. The natural lighting in combination with her ability to capture beautiful moments of the boys, is absolutely stunning. The photos are organic with no phoney staging or forced poses. She is very patient, gentle, and detailed. She has found great ways to incorporate the boys favorite toys and special blankets. She sends a flash drive with all the edited photos in both color and black and white for us to print as we would like. The high resolution of the photos has made it possible for us to do a few large format pieces. I am so excited for their 1 year shots. My husband and I are also hiring her to photograph at our family reunion next summer.
Dave has a rare talent of capturing the emotion and his photographs. His portrait photography in particular is compelling and tell a rich story.
I reached out to Maja to make a serious of family pictures for my daughter's one year birthday and was absolutely impressed by Maja's professionalism, creativity, and artistic taste. Maja came up with an amazing idea of French retro-styled photo in black and white, advised us on the accessories and apparel for the set, and created this beautiful and joyful memory for the whole family. Very fun experience with fantastic pictures in the end.
I've had two outstanding family portrait sessions with Erin. Her command of lighting, composition, and overall setting is incredible: I've felt so pleased with the quality of my shots. Erin is a true professional. Without question, I'll be using her services again!
Brian took fantastic photos of our family. He got our girls to relax and be themselves and delivered beautiful high-quality photos. He was extremely professional, nice, on time, and listened to what we wanted. We recommend him highly and will hire him again whenever we need top quality photos.
We have used Jamie to take photos of our kids for their newborn photos and their first birthday photos. We keep coming back because of both the quality of the photos, and the person behind the camera! She is so warm and friendly and immediately puts our shy (and camera shy!) toddlers at ease. She manages to capture amazing family photos, which is almost impossible with wiggly kids! Her photos are professional yet natural, and I am always amazed with how how poised we all look even during the "action" shots. We have several of her photos throughout our house. We plan to use Jamie to photograph our family for yearly pictures and milestones for a long time coming! I really can't say enough good things about her.
Excellent photography! Always beyond pleased with my results. Also have an amazing time at the shoot. Two extremely nice and talented photographers, always a lot of fun! I recommend them to anybody and everybody.
I hired Stephen to take pictures of my jewelry for my Etsy site The Charmed Beader. I had been struggling with lackluster pictures that didn't pop. Stephen brought excitement and enthusiasm to the project and made me look at my Esty site with fresh eyes. The pictures were creative and showed the work well. He got my branding and style.

Eventide Photography has taken pictures of my girls on several occasions and I couldnt be happier with the results. Susan has exceeded my expectations. The photographs came out amazing. Susan knew exactly how to pose everyone to make the pictures look natural. I had so many options to choose from. She put so much time into retouching the pictures and even went back to make more changes as I asked. I constantly get compliments on the pictures that I used for my Christmas card and now have hanging in my home. The black and white in-studio photographs were beautiful and timeless. The more recent photographs taken outdoors this summer were extraordinary. If you are looking for photographs to have hanging in your home for years to come I cannot recommend Eventide Photography enough. You will not be disappointed.
Marcia was commissioned to photograph our family portrait. We wanted something different, not just a picture of the 3 of us, but something the captured the essence of our family as we knew it. What impressed me was the time she took before our photo session to listen to what we expected, what we wanted as our end result. She has an uncanny knack for selecting "non posed" photos or cropping a picture that anyone else would consider an outtake and making it a visual feast for the eyes. The aesthetics of portrait is beautiful, but her ability to print the finest black and white (and color, sepia tone, etc) is really her niche and I'd challenge anyone to surpass that quality of her work. I'd recommend Marcia and her work to anyone.
I needed professional headshots & Katie made me look incredible, which is a feat in itself. She was friendly, on time, made the effort to come to my house, and willing to take photographs against multiple backgrounds - nature, black canvas, and white canvas. She also indulged me as I tinkered with putting on my jacket and taking it off. She was candid, yet polite, in letting me know what I could do to make myself look better in the photos (e.g. "that smile is just a bit too forced!"). She gave me black & white as well as color versions of every photo she sent. I would absolutely use Katie again!
