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!

Everything was fantastic, from the first email to picking out our photos! Rich was very easy to communicate with and the whole process was much better than previous experiences we've had with photographers. Our photos look so good, we are having a hard time narrowing down which ones to choose. We will definitely be using Rich again and will recommend him! So glad I took the time to look for the right photographer.

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!

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!

Johan was a great photographer! He photographed our outdoor wedding in March of 2017. He directed us well and made us feel comfortable. Plus, his prices were pretty affordable (his quote was only beat by one other photographer and we liked Johan's work better than even the more expensive photographers). We received a a disc with our chosen photo as the cover. It had been lost in the mail the first time Johan sent it to us (he sent another one) so it took a bit to get our disc, but not any crazy amount of time. We liked how most of the photos turned out and overall were very pleased.

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!

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!

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 was my wedding photographer for my engagement session and my wedding. She did an INCREDIBLE job!! My husband and I are extremely satisfied with her work, attention to detail, and professionalism. I am very picky about photos but after our engagement session there were so many that I loved!! She is very easy to work with, professional, and punctual. I love how much she paid attention to details when posing people. I can't wait to see the photos from the wedding because I know they are going to be amazing. I would highly recommend Amy to be the photographer for any wedding!!

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 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 :)

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!

Kyle was our photographer, here at the USF School of Theatre and Dance in Tampa, FL for over 5 years. He took faculty headshots, dance show photos, theatrical photos and press photos for us. I cannot recommend him highly enough. If I had the budget to fly him back to Tampa every time we had a show I would. Not only did he take the most beautiful, clear photos (sometimes in very challenging lighting conditions, with many moving dancers on stage) he was wonderful to work with. Always on time, very communicative, and incredibly nice and generous with his talent. I whole-heartedly, with no hesitations or equivocations recommend him for whatever job you have - weddings, family photos, theatre photos, real estate photos -- I cannot think of any event I wouldn't trust him with.

Kyle and Sadie Scharf are amazing photographers. I am a Realtor in Port Charlotte, Venice and Englewood, Fl. and I have used them to shoot videos, stills and drone photographs. Almost all of my listings that were shot by them some sold within as early as a day. Customers were so impressed by the quality and professionalism they provided. Highly recommend them to anyone. 10 STARS!!!

I had the privilege of working with the VAVA Graphics and Photography team when the business was just beginning to expand two years ago. Even in its infancy, the personnel from this company were extremely professional. When I was having Fall outdoor photographs taken, you could tell that the team had a vision of what would create the optimal photos. They identified the appropriate lighting and backdrops and would direct me accordingly. However, the team members also allowed me the freedom to have input and provide suggestions. In so doing, the VAVA photographer was able to capture beautiful pictures that surpassed my expectations.

I could not have been more pleased with my experience with VAVA Graphics. I selected this company based on their comment that "no project was too small." For five years, I had worked on a four generational family cookbook and genealogy, and wanted a 'stunning' hard cover to present to my family. Though it was a relatively small project, the company treated me as though this was an important (and interesting) project, and one to which they gave excellent personal attention and expertise. They were timely, efficient, professional ... and affordable. I could not have been more pleased with the outcome! AJS

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!

I don't know where to begin...Victoria Jessica's flexibility in me needing to secure something quickly, her professionalism, her excitement and enthusiasm, punctuality, quality and cost...I could go on!! Victoria Jessica captured my, (I have to be honest), semi cranky pregnant daughter with so much patience and care! The photos were absolutely beautiful; they had such a simplistic and classic feel which is what we were going for. I am so thankful that we had the opportunity to work with her; we are already discussing ideas for my twin granddaughters' future photo shoot! Victoria Jessica, thank you sincerely for capturing one of many memorable events for my family. I look forward to you capturing many more! Jajuana M.

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
