Have you ever done the whole studio photo session? I too was subjected to the awkward poses, unflattering light, rude workers and really expensive photo packages. Well, working with Rich is NOTHING like that. He is extremely professional, has an artistic eye and is extraordinarily detailed. Most photographers and photo studios have to send their work out to a graphic designer who has no idea who you are and what you want, but having a graphic designer like Rich as the photographer makes all the difference in world. Rich will take your ideas and bring them to life. Our photo session was fun, adventurous, and educational as he took the time to explain the when, what, where, and how of it all. He’s also a good listener and made my husband and I feel comfortable and relaxed. At the end of the session, it was like saying good bye to a family member. Do not hesitate to hire him for all of your photo needs. He is in my book, the BEST you will find, hands down. Simply amazing!

We work with MANY photographers all over the nation and this was quite a rare experience. Rich is beyond professional and blew our expectations out of the water with the final photos. He listened to our needs, was courteous, kind and genuinely interested in our event! We are looking forward to having another event in the area so that we can work with Rich again. He truly helped to elevate our experience!

Rich is very professional and easy to work with. We were blown away by the pictures he took. We loved every one of them. He sees things other photographers don't. He does not do the cookie cutter images that other photographers do. We highly recommend Rich.

Lyn is absolutely amazing! She came to us here in Greenville,SC. She chose an amazing location after I told her exactly what I wanted. Her prices are super cheap for amazing quality! I would never use another photographer again. It was blazing hot and she was extremely patient making sure she got every shot and that they were perfect. I've used a lot of photographers in the past and she outdid them all by a long shot and I couldn't be happier with our amazing photos!

Johan was the photographer for my wedding a couple of weeks ago, and he did an AMAZING job! The pictures were gorgeous. He made me and my husband look wonderful! He also got some really fun pictures I wasn't expecting. He really personalized the pictures to what we wanted. And outside of the actual pictures he himself was a joy to have at the wedding. He's got a great personality that just puts people to ease. I would certainly hire him for anymore photography needs I might have. Thank you Johan!

We had the pleasure of having Johan as the photographer for our wedding at the end of May. Johan did a great job with the pictures and we couldn't be happier. He met with us beforehand to see what we were looking for and to plan for the wedding pictures. We got all of the pictures we were hoping for during my time in the bridal suite, the actual wedding ceremony, and with family members afterwards. I highly recommend Johan for any event where you would like great pictures.

I needed some assistance with a few head-shots/ portraits for my business website. I had a few details that I was specific about and left the rest up to Betsy as the photographer. She understood what I needed and came up with great creative ideas to reach my goal. She was efficient, responsive and provided a high quality product. I'm happy to display her work to represent my organization. She also provided very fair pricing to meet my custom need since I only needed a few photos. Highly recommend.

The first thing I noticed about Amy is how warm she is. She greeted me with a hug at our first meeting. Her attention to the little details of our wedding provided for some of the best photos. She is very responsive to ideas and suggestions and extremely professional. Here's a tip: Let her do a bridal prep session. I was doubtful that I wanted an "intrusive" photographer while I was getting dressed, but we hardly noticed she was there, and again, some of the photos that came out of that session were nothing less than brilliant! I met with a number of photographers before I hired Amy, and I am so pleased I hired her, rather than any of the others! It shows that she loves what she does!

Amy is an absolute pro. She went out of her way to help us find the venue for engagement shoot that gave us the most "wow" factor and worked hard to incorporate our beloved pup in our engagement photos (even though was feeling camera shy). She was extremely easy to work with during both the engagement and the wedding shoots (despite the hectic schedule that required change of plans multiple times). She did a great job directing us for the posed shots and snuck in a few "candids" that are now among our favorite shots of the two events. She is definitely our choice photographer for all our future big life events. Cannot recommend her highly enough.

Amy is easily one of the best photographers you will work with. It was fun and easy to do the shoot with her. We would definitely request her services again- and you should too!

JR was easy to work with and I appreciated the quick turn around and the quality of the photos. I ended up receiving two pictures, which I was happy with initially, but after showing to some of my friends I realized one was retouched a bit too much (my friends said the photo didn't really look like me). I'm sure JR would be amenable if I asked about redoing that one, but I ended up using the other picture (that looked more like me) instead. JR took several great pics, and I wish I could have received all of them but as a poor medical student my budget was limited. Choosing one/two was the probably greatest challenge, because he provides many options. All in all, I'm happy with my professional headshot and JR's photography.

JR was a pleasure to work with from the first phone call. He went out of the way to make the process very convenient for me. In addition to being a very talented photographer, JR is friendly and put our guests at ease having their portraits taken. Finished files were provided very quickly after our event. I hope to use JR for future projects.

Oh where do I even start? I found Sarah on Thumbtack and gave her a call. I immediately knew she was not only a good person but also knew what she was talking about when it came to photography. She came out and did our wedding and the pictures made me cry looking through them! She and her team caught all the funny and special expressions throughout the day and she was such a fun person to work with! I'm so thankful I went with her and had the opportunity to meet such an amazing person. If you need a photographer, you don't need to look any further! She kept things flowing and kept us on schedule (not to mention helped us figure out exactly what we were doing half the day). Thank you, Sarah!!! You are the best and I truly can't wait to get to use you again for any pictures we need in the future!

I have worked with quite a few photographers over the years. Danny is by the best one I've ever worked with. His prices are fair, and with his 30 years of experience, you can't go wrong. I've never seen photographs of myself look this good. If you want top quality work with someone that knows their craft, than look no further than Danny Collado.

Song is AMAZING!! She photographed my wedding day and made the day even more special! In addition to the beautiful pictures, she went above and beyond to make the photo shoot fun and memorable. She also captured some video footage of family and the wedding party sharing how they felt that day, we will cherish these memories forever. It is obvious that Song loves what she does and her enthusiasm is contageous. She was always willing to do whatever it took to get the best angle possible. Song is very creative and captured every moment in a unique way. She works well with groups and knows how to command the crowd. I highly recommend Song as a photographer!

Song did my bridals and shot my wedding. She is absolutely amazing! She is so sweet and is very quick to respond to any questions you may have. She had us doing all kinds of different things that seemed strange at the time, but then you get the pictures, and you’re like “Wow! I understand now why she did this. These are incredible.” She has such an artistic eye, and takes such awesome shots. I was looking for someone different, someone who took more than just “cookie cutter” wedding pictures... and she delivered above and beyond! I cannot rave enough about her! If you’re looking for a photographer for any occasion, look no further!

Song photographed our engagement session as well as our wedding. Being a former photographer and having shot several weddings, I was very picky as to who would be capturing the moments of my wife and I. After seeing Song's work and talking with her I was very excited to see our images. Absolutely amazing work, extremely fun and professional, my wife and I are ecstatic with the final results. Thank you so much to Song for capturing the memories of our special day!

Lisa Hilburn Photography was great when she shot my wedding in March 2016. We got married up on the Blue Ridge Parkway in Virginia. She was great at picking the best spots so we would get the most amazing backdrops. We had a handful of a family for picture taking and she handled us all with grace and structure. Me and my husband don’t like taking pictures and she made it fun and stress free for us both. Lisa was attentive and got our pictures back promptly! We were so happy with our wedding experience we are getting Lisa Hilburn Photography to do my maternity pictures this coming spring!

We truly were amazed at her responsiveness and total interaction she had to make our dream wedding pictures come to life. She really is the perfect perfectionist when it comes to making dreams comes true through the creativity of photography...her amazing ideas and patience really made it worth the hours we spent one day to get the pictures done, but it was worth every minute of our experience with her from the moment we were engaged to the wedding day and even extra wedding pictures AFTER we were married, that was extra special for us as a couple b/c it completed our dream. Her professionalism and knowledge can add no doubt to her services. We both lived in different states and we greatly appreciated her flexibility in managing her time for when my husband would come into North Carolina so that we could arrange our engagement pictures. Thank you so much for all your services and the extra fun that we felt within each other as we took our pictures with you! I hope any bride and groom has the opportunity to experience their photography dreams come true with you. Now we are looking forward to doing pictures with her for our anniversary and our pup!

A good photographer is not just someone who can stand and snap a few pictures. But someone who truly cares about you and the memories that you are trying to create. That takes a special person; and that such person is Celeste. She is professional, creative, honest, patient, caring, a hard worker and puts her heart and soul into every picture that she produces. My husband and I are not photogenic at all, but Celeste worked her magic and made each shot look picture perfect. This did not come easy, though, as it was cold and rainy the entire day. Despite that inconvenience, Celeste stormed the weather and remained focused on capturing the never-to-be repeated moments. On a person's wedding day equally important to creating great pictures is the photographer's personality. I must confess that on arriving to the ceremony, I was a nervous wreck, but Celeste's endearing personality and calm manner helped to settle my nerves. If you are looking for a photographer who not only can give you the complete package but also IS the complete package, then Celeste is the one for you! Steven and Melissa
