Working with Visuals By J. McKenzie was a delightful experience. I am not one usually comfortable in front of a camera, but today I felt valued, suitable and excited to be the subject of my own lifestyle portrait photos. He was prompt, attentive (from first contact on Thumbtack all the way through photo day and beyond) and professional. I would highly and repeatedly recommend his services and will do so at my next opportunity.Jan 12, 2017VerifiedVisuals by J. McKenzie's reply
Thanks so much, Meg! You were so awesome to work with. I had a blast learning about you while snapping some shots for you website. I can't wait to see how you use them!
I had a fantastic experience using Jamaal for my graduation photos this Spring. He was always quick to reply, very polite and informative. On the shoot day he had no problem walking around the chosen photoshoot sites to find the perfect lighting and spots to shoot. He met me by the Lincoln Memorial and also did some shots by the World War II Memorial. All the photos came out great and it was easy to pay and share with my friends and family. Great price for a great experience!May 26, 2017Verified
Oh my goodness...where do I start? From the initial email I knew that Jamaal was someone that I needed to speak with. It was something about him that only my spirit could identify with, and God is NEVER WRONG. We spoke briefly that same day and my spirit confirmed that HE WAS THE PERSON I WAS SUPPOSED TO WORK WITH. We met prior to the 1st photo shoot and he and my boyfriend hit it off immediately. We're both led by our spirit, and that was another confirmation for me that Jamaal was God sent. Everything thing from planning, my being late due to traffic, and even taking a tad longer than we anticipated for the 1st shoot was handled with professionalism, but more importantly with understanding. His personality is awesome and his skills with his camera is magnificent. I literally started crying when I saw my photos. He captured emotions that I didn't even know I was exhibiting. The photos are absolutely breathtaking and more than I could have ever imagined. Jamaal is a great business person as well. He's not pushy. He's careful yet pleasant. He's fair, honest, and has a work ethic that you only hear about from back in the 60s and 70s. I am HONORED to be working with him and am looking forward to forging a long term business relationship and friendship.Jan 25, 2017VerifiedVisuals by J. McKenzie's reply
Thanks Tracey! It's been a pleasure working with you and I look forward to our shoots in the future!
Wedding and Event Photography
I just finished my engagement session with Jamaal and I was very pleased with the session. My photos are absolutely wonderful. I look forward to working with Jamaal during my wedding and reception. He has such a wonderful personality. Thank you again.Jun 26, 2019Verified
Jamaal has been nothing but fun, professional, flexible and all around great! Our package included an engagement photo session but Jamaal was awesome enough to allow us to use it for a different purpose and also traveled for it! He was everywhere for our wedding but never, ever in the way! I highly suggest his services!Oct 30, 2018Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Yes! You can see my pricing breakdown here VisualsbyJm.com/pricing and see the following link for Wedding Pricing: VisualsbyJm.com/investment
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?It's always a pleasure meeting new faces especially when they are looking for someone to capture their moments. It's a lot of pressure and I don't take it lightly. When possible, we set up a date and time to meet, call/video chat about for introductions and so we can talk about what service you're looking for and if I'm the guy for the job. I probably am but you never know. I'm no plumber!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I'm a self-taught photographer of 6 years and I've attended countless seminars and classes sponsored by the best photographers and industry leading graphic companies in the world.
