My experience with Elmo Laing was a powerful trigger of personal memory---from light, to set-up, to processing. By all accounts, he is a meticulous craftsman. Through his eyes and indelible images of my party guests, I am still reliving this momentous occasion ---my 60th birthday celebration. In photograph after photograph, Elmo captured every mood and motion of the affair. He documented the dancing, the band, the striking group portraits, the cake, the room decorum, and of course--ME. His photography has played an important role of constructing memory because the stories leap from their stills. His images are stimulants for remembering---happy lives, families and friends, and what & how we celebrate. I hover over these images! That’s what fantastic photographers do….they show the environment, they show what they saw and they work to compose the best for YOU. That is exactly what Elmo Laing produced for me. Oh, wait a minute, did I mentioned that he is patient, polite, and precise with posing & positioning—a good photographer. Thank you, Elmo for your artistry, storytelling and technical ability.

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.

I contacted Julie for some professional heads hots for my work profile. Her response was instant. The whole process was hassle free. On the day of actual photo-shoot, I expressed my inhibitions about how not so comfortable I am in front of a photographer. She not only lightened up the whole session but went above and beyond to make me feel comfortable. After the photo-session, she was spot on with her timing and sent me all the edits. For all my future photo-shoots, she is my go to person. She is top notch as far as taking head shots is concerned and at the same time she is interpersonal. I would gladly recommend to all my friends and family with similar needs. Thanks again Julie.

I was very pleased with WhileYouCheer photography. Not only did he stay at the wedding from the time of us getting ready, but stayed until the reception was over, which is very uncommon for many photographers to do that. I have been overwhelmed by the amount of comments people are saying about how they love the pics they saw so far, and can't wait to see more. Alan definitely made the bridal party, and us very comfortable around him, and with the great pics he captured. Thanks again, Brittany

We used Metin / Picaboost Photography for my sister's wedding. From the initial contact and throughout the entire, Metin was very responsive. He answered any questions we had right away and even had a phone call with us to talk details before signing a contract. Since we had to push up the wedding, time was crucial and Metin was quick to respond so that was very helpful! We sent Metin a video shot list and he captured everything we asked of him. He arrived early the day of the wedding and was very kind and professional. We only requested raw footage and the footage he sent was great! He cut the footage down so it would not be overwhelming but he still had all of the important parts of the day. We would highly request Metin and Picaboost Photography!

Candace was the photographer for my wedding and I loved both the photos and her wonderful work style that enabled her to fit seamlessly into an intimate, family event. Because we had a more intimate event, Candace brought a more creative, editorial approach to our photos that successfully told our unique story. I learned that she has a TV producer background and her visual storytelling skills were on full display. Finally, she has the most lovely personality. It was as if a close, trusted friend was capturing the memories from our special day. I give Candace my highest recommendation.

Our wedding was on March 15, 2014. We chose Fox & Owl Photography based on the recommendation of a friend and we couldn't be happier with our decision. A few weeks prior to our ceremony we had a meeting over coffee with both Carrie and Allison, where we discussed the type and style of photography we desired. My wife and I had poured over at least two dozen other portfolios, so we already had zeroed in on a style that both of us really liked. We wanted photography that showed off our love and affection for one another without being too saccharine. We also wanted some shots that highlighted our venue which was right on the Chesapeake watershed. We also listed out the individual moments over the course of the ceremony that we wanted captured on film. During this meeting they took extensive notes, and together we created a layout of the ceremony site and came up with a strategy for how to give the photographers the best sight-lines and ease of movement during the event. We also came up with contingencies for weather. We took a huge risk having an outdoor ceremony in the middle of March. Carrie and Allison exuded confidence and assured us rain or shine (or snow!) that they'd be able to work with whatever conditions were on the ground and still capture our wedding. On the day of the ceremony this planning proved very helpful. Thankfully it was a sunny day in the 60's! Another choice we made was to have the ceremony device-free. This allowed the photographers to do their jobs without distraction or interference. It also provided a serene atmosphere for our guests during the ceremony. We wanted very bold photography, outdoors in sunlight on the waterfront--shots that utilized light and shadow. During our initial meeting I used words like "brooding" and "melodramatic" to describe what I wanted. Fox & Owl came through in a big way. They produced photography that gave that sense exactly, while still keeping it romantic. There were plenty of photos that captured our joy and laughter as well--my wife's bridal portraits were stunning and her "getting ready" photos seem to be by consensus among our friends, the best sets. Carrie and Allison were cordial and professional throughout the day. Their style appeared to be to discreetly capture moments as they happened rather than to be vocal about staging people, Still, some of the best shots they took were when they directed us and asked us to pose in a particular way. Their instincts were dead on especially as the sun was going down. The sunset shots were spectacular and their use of that lighting was ideal. They adapted well to changes. There was plenty that went wrong during the day. Key friends and my own parents were so late they missed their photography times. Knowing that having these pictures were very important, we were able to make time after the ceremony and we got some family photos. In total, Fox & Owl delivered 377 high quality digital photographs on DVD soon after the ceremony. We couldn't wait to have our pictures and they replied to our update request promptly and kept their promised delivery date, which was faster than we were expecting. We narrowed down the best ones for printing and we decided we liked 99 of them. Of those 99, to break it down, I'd say 10 were exceptional, about 50 were excellent and the remaining 40 were very good. We honestly did not expect to have that many great photographs from the day. We spent over a week arguing over what photos should go in which frames and albums. It was a very good problem to have. We would happily recommend Fox & Owl to any couple that desires artistic, high quality wedding photography.

Corey was a delight to work with from start to finish. He was responsive to our questions and helped us identify the right location for the photo shoot. He arrived ahead of time to scout the location for just the right spots and made us feel at ease instantly. During the shoot Corey was collaborative and offered great suggestions that helped us come across naturally. This really showed through in the photos as we look comfortable and not stiff. (And this was in both the more formal portraits and in the candid shots.) Would we work with Corey again? Absolutely. Would we recommend him to others? You betcha. Thanks for a great session, Corey. You've helped us capture some truly beautiful memories. Cheers!

I have done 9 photo shoots with Erin at In Bloom Photography. Not only are her prices competitive and her work amazing, but she is a joy to work with. She has an uncanny way of getting you to relax in front of the camera and gets great shots as a result. Together, we've done a maternity shoot, a boudoir shoot, my son's newborn, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, and 12 months shoots, as well as a family portrait. In addition, she came to my son's first birthday and took candid shots as well. If you're looking for someone who will put you at ease, capture those moments you don't ever want to forget, as well as give you amazing pictures that you will be proud to hang in your home - all for incredible prices - you should consider her. I will, certainly, continue to use her for all my photography needs in the future.

I need to tell everyone how good of a job Paul has done for me. I recently got married for the second time. First time was in 1994. Paul shot both of my weddings and I can not stress enough how well he does keeping everyone on a schedule getting the best shots while still allowing us to have a great time socializing with all our guest. He's not only a great photographer but also a great resource for helping you in planing your special day. I would highly recommend him and have done so on many occasions. He not only shot my brothers wedding years ago but has shot many of my close friends weddings as well. You will not be sorry when hiring Paul Fleming for your wedding.

We used Benz Studio Photography for family holidays pictures and the results were superb! I honestly can't say enough positive things about the quality of the photos, the creativity and overall experience. We had so many we loved it was hard deciding which ones we wanted to use for holiday cards and framing. Josh is also terrific with kids, which made the experience that much more pleasant (our daughter is one tough customer). I would highly recommend!

Wow! We just received our picture gallery and could not be happier with them. I am the mother of a very strong-willed and high needs little boy who fussed the majority of our session. Blaire was so gentle and patient with all of us that it felt like a family member was taking our pictures. She somehow managed to capture every calm between our stormy periods. So grateful and thankful for the wonderful experience and pictures!

As another photographer and friend, I have worked alongside Zoe in environments where we were taking photos for recreational purposes. She has an eye for capturing different and unique angles that even I at times have not considered. On top of that, if there is anything Zoe doesn’t know, she researches, learns, and then practices her newfound knowledge. She puts an immense amount of effort in editing all of her best photos, and the end results show that. Zoe has a hardworking, creative spirit, and I look forward to seeing more of her work as she is constantly developing herself.

Megan took engagement photos for my fiance and I. They were absolutely gorgeous! She let me pick where I wanted to take the photos, but when I drew a blank, she gave me some beautiful options. She offered to include my dog, who I am obsessed with, and provided props like a blanket and a chalkboard. She posed my fiance and I because have no experience doing pictures, and got me ALL of my pictures FULLY EDITED within two days and for a ridiculously low price! I would 100% recommend using Megan as your photographer!
