Tina does amazing work! She has conducted major photo shoots with famous models and major movies. Her modeling-photo experience really shines through as Tina has master control of all components of her studio -- all components geared to one goal: making you look the best, fabulous! Tina is a very friendly and welcoming person. She motivates you to bring out your best portrait look. She is the best photographer to have ever taken my portrait in my life. I highly recommend her.

I am extremely satisfied with my portrait photos taken at Monumental Arts by K. Since I hadn't had a professional photo in awhile the process and options were well explained. There was no rush which allowed for a relaxed session. When I asked, great suggestions were given on my accessory choices. Besides taking great photos, providing numerous pose and background options Monumental Arts provided outstanding customer service. They responded immediately to my emails and texts. The online review and purchase process is so easy. BIG THANKS to ace photographer K, who later quickly helped on a rush order.

I have been impressed every time I use Tamarack Images. Adept at capturing the spirit and emotion of the event, Tamarack provides beautiful candids and authentic but flattering portraits. I have used them for events serving anywhere from 40 to 600 participants. The service in unobtrusive but provides thoughtful glimpses into the personal moments of the event and its participants. When doing portraits for business websites, he has a way of making people feel comfortable in front of the camera. Great experience overall! Highly recommend.

Chris works for Living on the Lawn magazine. A private resident community magazine that I am the publisher for. Each month I ask Chris to capture our feature family and his portrait work is as good as it gets. As publisher I trust him to deliver to me every month a series of images of our feature family. One image of the family goes on the cover and his other images fill out the remainder of the feature. He is great with the families. I love his work, but better yet the families love his work and enjoy working with him.

Robert was a great wedding photographer for us. I phone interviewed him, had an in-person interview, and heard from 2 of his references about 10 months before our wedding. In the lead-up, he actually reached out to ME, reminding ME that I wanted to touch base with my list of photos, preferences, wedding day details, etc., so that tells me he was on the ball. Once I had the photo list, preferences, etc. documented, he set up a phone call about a week or 2 before the wedding, and we stepped through the timeline, and he advised me how to order the shots, how to make sure family photos go as smoothly as possible, etc. We added one hour to the contract, and the contract change was a breeze. On the wedding day, he was on time and ready to go for our first look. I was an antzy bride, so he dealt with the, "What time is it?" question a lot and didn't seem to mind. (Actually, I was honest about not being crazy about posed pictures to begin with, and he didn't seem offended.) He breezed us through family portraits before the ceremony and then the big family portraits during cocktail hour. I actually had 30 minutes of my cocktail hour thanks to him. I know he was *there,* but I totally didn't notice him during the ceremony or reception. He gave us a heads up when his time was up and thanked us for our business. Per our contract, he delivered preview pictures the next business day--only he provided 14--4 more than contractually obligated. And again, within contract deadlines, he delivered the entire set of photos 5 weeks and 1 day after the wedding. Then we received the CD with the images about 6–7 weeks after the wedding. Out of the 800ish photos he took, I find about 175 to be good candidates for an album. He got great photos and followed my preferences. Very happy with Robert and the photos.

I have had the extreme pleasure of Graham Snodgrass photographing two family portraits of my family. Both times Graham produced superb quality portraits , capturing each family member's personalities. I have the one he shot last fall in my office at work and I constantly receive compliments on the work. Graham uses all kinds of lights and equipment to ensure that the lighting and quality of his work is fine. His ideas on background and location are original and interesting. He has framed the work he has done for me and each time the finished product is just right. Graham has creativity and his work is professional. I most certainly will have Graham shoot another portrait this fall for a Christmas gift for my husband. I love his choices for outdoor backgrounds! They are so personal and intersting!

I had professional headshots and food photos done back in November, and they both came out amazing. The food shots were for my new vegan blog and I strongly believe my high traffic is related to the photos on my page. The Appointment started on time and within 15 minutes I had a bunch of options that I felt comfortable choosing from right then, but he continued shooting for the entire 30 minutes as originally planned. I received an email that night about 8 hours later with a link to my photo gallery where I had the option to choose digital copies or prints mailed out to me. I went with both and I'm so glad I did. Overall I'd definitely recommend him for personal, professional and/or media-related photography.

We engaged Mr. Cassatt to take portraits of our staff for our website and other promotional materials. We found him incredibly responsive, affordable and professional. His work product was top-notch and we were very pleased with the result. Our whole firm was pleased with his efforts. I would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone needing a professional photographer.

My husband and I couldn't of asked for a better photographer to work with! She was on time and went out of her way on our special day. She took whatever pictures we wanted and through all the confusion never once complained or seemed like she didn't want to be there. She's excellent to work with as a bride she also helped with other various tasks that were not even asked for her to do. Amazing personality she got along with everyone and is great with kids too!!

He came to my house to do some portrait-type photography. I appreciated that Joe was relaxed and friendly and didn't seem rushed. I got the photos back from him very quickly. He was helpful in suggesting good backgrounds as well. I was very pleased with the end result. I think he'd make a great family photographer also.

LIDDY was so impressive ! We scheduled the family portrait 6 weeks out. She contacted me 2 weeks before the shoot and the day before. She was great with the group of 20 where the ages ranged from 95 to 2 years old. Everyone felt comfortable with her and she set up the perfect family portrait! Everyone asked for her card and commented on how good she was. I will recommend her to all my friends and know who to call if I need a professional photographer.

Pri was great. She was easy to communicate with and quickly answered all of my questions as we planned our photo shoot. When the weather that day was terrible, she was able to reschedule so we got pretty weather. On the day of the shoot, she was friendly and professional. I could tell she was used to kids and babies because she made all kinds of goofy sounds to get my son to smile in the pictures. I'm really happy with the beautiful family portraits and will definitely book Pri again in the future.

We hired Lizzy to help us take pictures for my father's 90th birthday. We did a lot of family portraits and singles. We also used Lizzy to take pictures of the event. Lizzy was sweet and very professional. She suggested many ideas during the picture taking process. She was very patient with my father who moved slowly. Thanks Lizzy you were great.

Rachel is a real pro - if you are looking for beautiful, real, crisp, clear portraits, engagement and wedding photos, family photos - anything - look no further. Rachel instantly made me feel at ease in front of the camera and knew exactly how to guide my fiance and I to capture authentic and natural photos. She is brilliant at using natural light, too. We could not be happier!

We had an exceptional experience with Little Palm! We are so happy with the photos Talah took and our experience working with her. I was worried that it would be difficult to capture our son smiling (since he's a tween and was not enthusiastic about getting family pictures taken), but Talah worked hard to develop a good rapport with him and got some fantastic shots that captured his true personality and many shots of him with a bright smile. If you are looking for someone who will take a mix of traditional and artistic shots and has an outstanding eye for photo composition, look no further. We looked at several photographers before settling on Little Palm, and we are so happy with our decision! Take a look at her pictures compared to others, and there is no comparison.

Punctual, personable, artistic. Put the subjects at ease. Reasonable prices. We would've appreciated a bit more coaching in terms of open jackets, stray hair etc. to improve finished product. Would use again.

Evan was a wonderful photographer! And he put in so much advance work to make sure the shoot was amazing and flowed smoothly. The photoshoot was a surprise for my boyfriends birthday. Evan suggested a shared pinterest board so he could see exactly what I had an mind. I even shared pics of my boyfriend so he could see what types of poses he liked. He went above and beyond and scouted locations in the area I was staying in and even did test pic in advance to make sure he could get the lighting right. He was very responsive and always got back to me quickly and answered all of my questions promptly. He was also very easy to work with and the final product was amazing. I am so glad that I went with Evan and Your Social Gathering. His fiance/ lighting assistant was super sweet as well. I definitely recommend him to others.
