Rich is hard working and an extremely creative photographer. He photographed our marriage proposal despite the extremely bad thunderstorm. He was able to produce some amazing photos. I would definitely use his services again.

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.

Our experience with our newborn photo session was nothing short of amazing! She was so patient with our squirming little guy and came to our home with all of her equipment, making things so much easier on us. The finished photos were amazing! She is the only photographer we've ever had that we would recommend to everyone!

My experience with CharlotteVibe Photography has been a very pleasurable one. I have had both a family photo session and an individual headshot session with them. Each time, the photographer and staff were professional and very friendly. They were always willing to accomodate anything I needed and allowed ample time to get my photos taken. Their response time at was also very professional. They followed up in the timeframe they quoted and always made sure I was completely satisfied. CharlotteVibe Photography is responsible for my photo on the front of my soon-to-be released book and I would refer their services to anyone.

Tara is an excellent photographer! She is great with both people and pets. She seems to manage to capture that twinkle in their eye and a winning smile. Her professional headshots make the difference when enhancing that professional profile and stepping up your game. When you want to know WHO takes the photographers photo; it’s Tara!

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.

I cannot say enough good things about Scott Clinton and the photo shoot we did with him. I worked for a national ad agency for many years prior to coming to BonWorth and we used photographers from all over the world--Scott was better, more creative, easier to work with and generally the best I have ever had the pleasure to work with. We plan on using him exclusively from this point forward. Lynne Strickland, BonWorth Marketing

The girls and I had a great time while working on my photoshoot. Lindsey and Jamie are both laid back, and pleasant to work with. Lindsey had some ideas beforehand, so we didn't go blindly into the shoot- everything worked out smoothly, and it didn't take long at all (compared to other shoots that I've done)! Excellent photographers with top notch work!

I was in a pinch (timewise) to have my professional headshot completed for a presentation the same week. Cody was immediately responsive to my request (less than 5 minutes) and was present at my office the very next business day before noon. We took a variety of shots and chose various backdrops that were lit in different ways. Cody selected the best shots and sent them via Dropbox the next day. So while there are many local photographers in the greater Charlotte, NC area I would recommend Cody for any of your project needs based on his professionalism and availability and quality work.

Andrea was a delight to work with and produced beautiful photos. She was very responsive and sensitive to what I was looking for and made the whole experience a pleasure. She not only made me feel comfortable, she was creative and made the shoot fun. She's a gifted photographer, professional to the core, and did a great job editing the final photos.

I had Mrs. Hilburn do some shoots with me on a few different occasions in college and it was great. She made me feel completely comfortable, she made it a priority to really get creative and understand what I was going for. We did anything from portraits in a studio to action shots outside. I have recommended her to all my friends and family. Shes the best!

Quality and presentation along with creativity is essential so if you want to get great images with quality albums , Ali Nicole is your girl! She is one of the best photographers, provides you good quality of photo. Ali took pictures for my daughter's wedding.

Had a great time being a part of one of the project taken up by Krupanidhi. I would say the way the nature was captured with portrait was mind blowing . Good luck with all your other projects.
