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!

Lyn is an amazing photographer. Unlike many others, she is patient and will take a TON of shots to ensure she has a large assortment of pictures to please everyone! She is creative and flexible. She has the ability to help someone who is uncomfortable in front of the camera, relax. I cannot wait to book her for my son's senior pictures! I can count on her to help me decide on the perfect location!

There are few people I would take the time to write a review for, however, Lyn deserves the highest of accolades. She strives for excellence and makes you feel like a rockstar! I recommend "Made You Look Photography" for any photographic needs.

My husband and I were looking for a photographer to take our family photos at our home and we found Johan on Thumbtack.

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 and her twin sister Amber were absolutely amazing on my wedding day.. They were professional and patient which was perfect since there was so much going on that day..

JR successfully completed an unusual photo shoot assignment for me, to document a historical property (house and outbuildings), interior and exterior, in order to make a record of the house as it is now, before it is sold at auction. I am neither buyer nor seller but have a love for the home, which my grandfather built. The home is an American Craftsman style home acknowledged on several historical registers. I wanted many photos to document the property, rather than a few artistic photos. To photograph the property, JR had to make arrangements with the auction company and owner for a private showing of the home and travel out of town to the site. I could not be present because I am out of state. He made sure to arrange the shoot for when the light would be best, midday on a sunny day. He provided 200 photos. His photos capture the warm wood tones of the 1920s paneling. He took special care with many photographic details such as getting the light on the interior stairs. It is sometimes hard to get someone to do your bidding when you are not there to guide them, especially when the assignment is not a typical job such as photographing real estate for sale. JR was willing to listen and take on the assignment and complete it in the time allocated (before the auction), and deliver the photos quickly. He takes pride in his work and cares about the quality of his photographs.

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.

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.

Candee is an amazing person to work with. I've been shooting with Candee for about a year and a half now and have loved every shoot that I've done with her. She's friendly, very professional and makes you feel comfortable in front of the camera. She provides pointers when needed but tries to give you as much creative freedom as possible. If you are never sure what pose to strike Candee will offer great direction to make you look unbelievable in any photo she captures. I can honestly say Candee is one of the best photographers I've worked with and I hope to work with her on future projects :)

Danny Collado is an exceptional photographer and an even more exceptional professional that should be on every real broker's team who lists property for sale. I am a commercial real estate broker with 36 years of experience and Danny has shown himself to be one of the best photographers I have ever worked with. My only regret is that my home market is Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill and Danny is located in Charlotte. If he were local I would use no other photographer. As stated in my opening sentence, Danny's photography is exceptional. He photographed an apartment community for me and his work was beautiful. I am very proud to use it in my offering memorandum. Not only did he provide me with clear and well-composed high-resolution still photographs, but he also included an interactive "virtual tour" as part of his package. But the thing that really put Danny over the top in my experience was his responsiveness, commitment to excellence and his eagerness to go the extra mile. He jumped on the assignment immediately and completed it in short order. Then his follow-up and customer service afterward were far above the call of duty. I hope I can work with Danny again in the future because he's the best!

Danny Collado is the best photographer I've ever hired. Not only are his prices reasonable, but his manner is also considerate and the quality of his photographs exceptional. I had to reschedule a few times, and he was patient with my changing schedule and travel. Arriving early to the shoot, he took a few photographs and kindly changed some of the shots after I added some finishing touches. For the photo shoot of our house for sale, Danny's pictures far exceeded the realtors' shots. I highly recommend his work and, more importantly, him to anyone seeking a swift, high quality, photo shoot at an unbeatable price!

We were very pleased with Song's creative view and flexibility during our engagement shoot! We had our dog with us for our engagement photos and she made sure to include him and the poses she suggested were romantic and unique. She also got some gorgeous spontaneous shots, both with our dog and with the unforeseen challenges during our shoot (mostly just my fiancé locking our keys in the car, haha). We can't wait to see how our wedding photos will turn out!

Song did a very, very fantastic job taking our engagement, bridal and wedding pics!!!! We all love her!!! She is creative, artistic and romantic! She is an expert catching those tiny but loving moments because she is a beloved wife and mom! And I love her way to use natural lights and sparkles to make pics tender and smooth. Besides, she edits those pics fast that normally I got pics within a few days. I'd definitely work with her in the future!

Blooming Dreams photography will not disappoint!

Corey really saved the day as he agreed to shoot my sister's wedding only a week prior. He showed up only a few minutes after the the bridal party and before any other vendor. His punctuality was much appreciated as was his professionalism throughout the day/night. Corey is not only professional but an awesome personality that could get anybody feeling comfortable on camera! He is such a fun time and a pure talent! I would recommend him for any event as his talent is so versatile. Choosing Corey was the best decision for my sister's special day!

I will always refer my friends to hire Corey to capture their wedding day.

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
