Steve was very friendly, accommodating, and patient. He did a fantastic job taking my professional portrait, and I would definitely recommend his service to anyone who is looking for a professional portrait, or other photography services. He worked with me to see exactly what I was looking for and to find the best picture for me. Thank you Steve!

I don't even know where to start except to say that what a lesson I've learned about the benefits of using a skilled photographer/George when it's time to sell a home. I'm living on the West Coast trying to sell a home on the East Coast! The 1st MLS listing created by our real estate agent was clearly taken with a cell phone camera and were just plain terrible! Considering the only marketing tool for selling a home in rural Vermont is the internet great photos are CRITICAL! Every real estate or private seller should seek out a professional photographer before listing a home. So after seeing the realtors images I was in a panic to find a real photographer. AND I DID! I put in my request at Thumbtack and was speaking to George (no lie) less than 30 minutes later. He listened to my needs drove all the way out to the house, took the most gorgeous pics and even showed the house to some folks that showed up on their own while he was there! Now after our 1st week w/George's new images on our MLS listing we have two offers and more coming daily. Do it right hire a professional! And if you can hire GEORGE!

I had a boudoir shoot with Diane & Christa. From the moment I got there, they were energized, excited & made me feel comfortable. Christa did an amazing hair & makeup job. We had a great time! Diane provided wonderful direction and suggestions. I would highly recommend Chappell Studios Portraits to anyone!! Such a liberating experience that made me feel sexy, beautiful and confident. Would do it again in a heartbeat!!

I found Tom French Photography online when looking for a photographer for our wedding. I needed something within my budget and I liked that he would charge by the hour. He was very responsive to emails and phone calls leading up to the day, and on the day he was punctual, polite, and encouraging. He was very patient with our crazy family and even spent a little extra time to make sure he got all the shots we wanted. In addition, we got the pictures back incredibly fast, within 2 weeks of the day! I have friends who sent 5 times as much and had to wait months for their pictures. when we did get the pictures, the quality was amazing. He did a combo of black and white and color photos He is a true professional and very talented. I would highly recommend Tom for any event!

I have to say how absolutely amazing my experience was with SPM studios. Sean is a true professional and has a way of making you feel completely at ease. This was my first time doing something like this and I was insanely nervous. He gave me tips and ideas for embracing this experience and took his time with me for each outfit change and shot. I love his work. I love his use of lighting. I looked at several photographers prior to finding Sean and none gave me that excited feeling...only Sean's work. It's clear that photography is his passion. My husband would agree and is shocked and amazed at these photos...classy, sexy, beautiful. Best birthday gift ever : ). Totally worth it ladies!!!!

We haven't received our pictures from Neal yet, but I feel confident about my 5/5 star review from the few he showed us on his camera. Neal was a last minute find for us when I realized that my mother-in-law had put too much thought and effort into our rehearsal dinner to not have professional photos. He hardly asked any questions at all which was Super helpful since our wedding was in a couple of days and we were busy beyond belief when we hired him. He was Amazing at getting everyone's attention for group shots and I feel like he made sure to capture every photo we'd care to have after the event. He came up with some very clever angles and positions. He was also so personable and pleasant to be around. My only regret is that we didn't have him with us for our whole wedding day. Highly recommend!!

Tiffany was fabulous, and a lot of fun to work with! I first contacted Tiffany after reviewing her portfolio and seeing her clear talent for working in natural light settings and her attention to detail. Seeing the sneak preview photos she's already posted on Facebook, she definitely came through with those little details and wonderful use of natural lighting. I cannot wait to see the rest! She was so supportive throughout the process and easy to contact at any time- her communication is excellent! You can tell she truly enjoys her work. She is also very thoughtful and attentive to our needs- helping me relax with positive and supportive statements and encouraging my new hubby to SMILE (Which isn't always easy to get him to do!). I really liked how she didn't just take the picture and move on, if she didn't she like the shot, she would take the time to fix things until it looked just perfect. I loved that, and realized that is the difference of a photographer who gives extra attention to detail. It is worth noting she was also very patient but assertive with our slightly disorganized family who kept attempting to wander into shots (as I imagine many families do at weddings). A couple bossy family members didn't like this at all, and it was EXACTLY what we needed, because I didn't have to do a thing to get everyone to cooperate. This probably made the difference in how many shots she was able to get, and also the difference in my overall stress levels in the day to not have to plead or argue with anyone to follow directions with our limited time. She got through every shot on our list and accommodated a few last minute extras. If you hire Tiffany, here is what you will get: 1) excellent communication 2) a photographer with a gifted eye for lighting, balance and attention to detail 3) someone who is likeable as a person and is super pleasant to work with, 4) the perfect balance of politeness, patience, focus, efficiency and assertiveness to corall rowdy family members and keep things moving along smoothly 5) the opportunity to collaboratively design a shot list customized to the specific needs of your family and finally, as I can see from other people's wedding photos in her portfolio, 6) a set of cherished photos that reflects the personality of you and your partner, not the a one-size-fits-all style some photographers use for every wedding. Word of caution: she books up quickly!

I am a songwriter/musician from the Central Mass area known as The Casket. I've been in the "scene" for the better part of a decade in one form or another, and I have worked with quite a few photographers on different projects over the years. Most have been decent in one or two areas, but it wasn't until I met John Sevigne at a show he was shooting and saw his work that I was absolutely blown away. Of course there are plenty of photographers who have a good eye and, with the right equipment, can get a few good shots. However, with John, not only is the finished product second to none (and I MEAN it, I'll take the Pepsi challenge on that any day) but working with him is an absolute wonder. By now I'm sure it seems like I'm just blowing smoke, but this is coming from a lifelong artist who has had to work with some real pains in the a*sses and cannot overstate how stress free and downright FUN it was to work with someone so talented yet so easy to get along with. That was worth it's weight in gold. And speaking of gold... I almost didn't believe him when he let me know what his price for a promo shoot was (and actually that it was also the same price as a live shoot as well). I had seen his work, and heard the rate he charged, and almost expected to be hit with about 300% more in the type of "hidden fees" that are typically warned against in cell phone service provider commercials. Nope, no tricks. No scams. Just top-tier photography and almost laughably low rates. TL;DR - Don't pass on Sevigne Photography and Design. I can GUARANTEE you will never find better quality work at a better price from a better human being. I for one am not only excited to have John as a part of The Casket's promotional team, but I'm incredibly honored to be able to count him among my friends.

Cindy McGrady is a talented and passionate photographer with the right control over light and shadows. She looks for the right angle, the best opportunity to capture the sense of beauty in all the components of a great picture. What I also love about Cindy is the charisma and joy of life, this is very important to my own perspective. I truly recommend Cindy McGrady's Photography.

Tiffany was an amazing photographer. She was able to get beautiful pictures of both my children together, which is no small task in its own right. She is great with kids, very responsive and professional. I have recommended her to family and friends. I feel I would have paid double the price for the quality photographs I received, if I went with another photographer.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
