I have worked with Mark on 2 separate ocassions. Once when he took action shots for the Chelsea Varsity Hockey team 2 years ago and again recently to have my daughters senior pictures taken. Both cases I was extremely happy. Almost too happy as it is almost impossible to choose which pictures we want to order. Thankfully, we are not restricted to a certain amount of posses like you are with some photographers. You order the posses and sizes you want. We saw some of the digital pictures the very next day, the balance of the shots within the week. Turnaround is very fast. He is very professional and open to new ideas. I will definately use his services again.

Lisa Freeman and her husband, John, did a stellar and amazing job at photographing our wedding on 9/20/14. We have hundreds of amazing pics with dozens of different poses to commemorate our special day. We will never use anyone but Lisa again for our family portraits or other photography needs!

Photographer was 10 minutes late to event....... Would have really appreciated it if he would have made the effort to be there on time. If the pictures turn out wonderfull - all would be forgiven and I would give him the 5th star.

Michael was brought in to take shots at our state convention. We gave him little if any direction on what we expected, and as it turned out his portrait photos became the highlights on our national campaign literature. He understood what we needed better than we did ourselves. Good job, Michael.

We needed a traditional studio portrait but also wanted to get a few pictures in the late afternoon sun if possible. The weather cooperated and GE of A2 Press Photography was able to shoot both for us. GE was also able to provide digital editing to our selected photos. He worked with our time frame, was responsive, and easy to reach via email or text. We are happy with our pictures and had a fun time taking them.

Mr. Branden was the photographer for my daughter's wedding on March 14, 2015. The very first conversation we had, he was very specific about what he provided and was very dedicated to giving my daughter the experience she wanted. He arrived early on her day, notified me when he got there and was ready for everyone when we arrived. Edric was very easy to communicate with and to, the guests loved the fact that he was sociable while working. He didn't just photograph the guests, they told a story of that day. We are so pleased with his work and have and will continue to recommend him for all events. He was awesome and I plan on using him in the future.

Any mom of toddlers can relate to the struggles of a photo shoot. I tried 2 other, very talented photographers before striking gold with Sam. The other photographers pale in comparison. My girls now look forward to seeing Miss Sam. While I am still a little anxious during a photo shoot, Miss Sam stays calm, cool, positive and comforting to everyone the whole time. Even more than just the day of the shoot, Sam helps me come up with ideas for clothes to wear, outdoor locations, indoor backdrops, and the actual poses too. Her creativity is endless and the execution is flawless. Samantha truly has a gift, and we are all blessed to be able to share it with her.

Erin is a wonderful photographer! She has a great sense of people, artistic eye, and captures just the right moments of you. I had such a fun time working with Erin. I always feel awkward when I know I'm in front of the camera but Erin makes you feel comfortable. She provides clear direction for people like me who aren't so photogenic, but manages to capture the natural, candid look in every photograph. Erin is great to work with and I highly recommend her!

I have ordered pictures from Ms.Zakala, and have had her take portraits of myself. She was very friendly and willing to do whatever I wanted. She also took the time to tweak what I didn't like on photshop. I lover her work and will definitely go to her again in the future.

In summary, if you're thinking to hire Lydia, go ahead and do so now. On to more details... I was looking for a local professional photographer to capture engagement pictures. From the start, Lydia was very responsive with all communications and she offered a competitive and affordable quote. She was very friendly and professional. I planned a surprise encounter for my fiancee with Lydia and she was already there when we arrived and we got wonderful stealthily taken pictures. After this, we took more formal shots. We felt very comfortable with her simple directions, and she even looked for suitable areas nearby to take these pictures. Her final edits were very natural, breath-taking and professional, that she delivered in a very timely manner. My fiancee and I could not be happier. Thanks Lydia!

Jessica is very professional, yet also makes it a very fun experience while photographing her clients. She always has new ideas on poses that don't look super "posey," so your pictures will always come out unique! Her turnaround time for editing and getting the photos back to you is very quick and they always come back beautiful. I highly recommend Jessica at Pinky Promise Photography for your professional photographing needs!

I've had the privilege of working with Dave Courey on a number of video assignments. Dave puts everyone at ease and is quick and efficient with everyone's time, yet always produces a quality professional product that stands the test of time. His turnaround time is exceptional. He has the ability to add music, if the production calls for it, and to edit so the products is seamless. One of the productions was on a short time frame and he was ahead of schedule. He is a great collaborator on pointing out strategies to make a production even better than imagined. He keeps up-to-date with imaging technology. I've worked with several production professionals, and Dave Courey Media Imaging is the best. Gretchen Smith, Outside the Lines Communications
