Rich provided photography services for my daughter's 1st birthday party for 3 hours. The party was at my family's residence, and both indoor and outdoor photography was provided. Rich was on time and very professional throughout the party. He listened to my needs and made helpful suggestions for background/lighting to optimize pictures. He was very professional and knew how to work with babies and toddlers to make the most out of the photos. My family was very pleased with how it all came out and I would definitely use his services again. Thank you!

Richard was really cooperative with my vision for my photos, and very talented in photography. He recommended a great place to take photos. He knew about lighting and that helped make for great photos! He was very easy to take photos with, calm and helpful with ideas of how to stand and sit, but still look natural. Overall I was very happy with the outcome of his work, and I would recommend him for your engagement, or personal photography needs.

We found Lyn for our engagement photography after reading great reviews from others and they were right! Lyn made us feel comfortable right away and clearly loved doing what she does. She was so excited and great about encouraging us to share our ideas for what we wanted out of our photos and they turned out so amazing. She is definitely more hands-off when it comes to staging photos. She would do it a little, but mostly wanted to capture us being us, naturally. I also very much enjoyed her photo editing. If I had to make one critique, it would be that she gave us more of a say in which photos got edited and how they got edited. For example, I would have liked her blur out part of my face where I had a zit... I also would have liked to see some of our original, unedited photos or other photos in their original color... but it's not a big deal. She also gave us some fun enlargements at the end which was very sweet. Thanks, Lyn!!! We had a great time!

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.

I hired Johan through Thumbtack to be our wedding photographer for five hours on October 25th. We are EXTREMELY happy that we found Johan. He is a great person, very friendly and fun. He makes picture taking a good time and gets everyone involved and excited! His pictures were great quality and really captured great moments of our special event. His prices are amazing!! I couldn't believe how reasonable his prices are. I would be willing to pay much more for his services! He delivers the photos to you in a timely manner and gives you full access to them to print them, post them, etc. I really can't say enough great things about Johan and his photography. I would DEFINITELY hire him again and hopefully we will be using him again for other life events. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Johan to anyone who needs a wedding photographer!

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 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.

He is so patient and kind, and genuinely cares about making sure you are 100% satisfied with each and every photo he takes.

Scott's quote was the highest one received on Thumbtack for a professional photo shoot; however, the headshot images I scanned on his website grabbed me like no others. I appreciated Scott's initial follow-up on Thumbtack with an available appointment slot. Scott provided a thorough initial consultation over the phone to discuss ideas for best photos. He encouraged me to get my make-up done for the photos, a service I had not factored into this process, and coordinated an appointment for me with a talented local artist on site. On the day of the shooting, he spent time with me discussing wardrobe options I brought to the studio and spent considerable time collaborating with me. I do not have the background or experience to be able to clearly define what I want as a professional photo, yet Scott's equipment in the studio (screen for viewing photos taken ) and talent made it easy to figure out what would work best for me. Scott is professional, talented, conscientious, and patient. He is also very easy to work with and a great communicator. I will not hesitate to use him again.

Bill Crowder and wife, Bonnie, were outstanding in their photography work for my daughter's wedding back in September. I had worked with Bill previously on a couple of business transactions, and, knowing of his photography experience in doing event shoots, I asked him to give me a quote for a turnkey photography shoot from church to receptionfor my daughter's wedding (not a laid-back time!!), Now, to give you an idea of what I am talking about and, without my beating my chest at all, let me tell you how great he (they) did in this most-important photography shoot! I belong to the 3rd largest Presbyterian Church in the country, Myers Park Presbyterian Church in Charlotte, NC (4,500+ members), and the reception (arranged through a close relative) was at a fairly exclusive country club in Charlotte. I tell you all of this to let you know how "picky" these institutional administrators are (very nice but by "the book) . Bill and Bonnie quickly got their respect, and, to this day three months later, I understand that they (usually through me) are still getting some referrals from these institutional organizations. My wife and I, plus more importantly the bride, have nothing but Kudos for their professionalism and great picures in large events, but also the close comradery all the event planners and administrators quickly developed with Bill and Bonnie! They were great, and i highly recommend themI If you can be praiseworthy during an entire wedding weekend, you may have reached your zenith!!! My wife and I are very happy to be able to give you this unqualified 5-star reference!! Robert Moore Charlotte, NC P.S. The only thing that could have gone better would have been if they had taken a moment off to eat a little food from the buffet which we had paid for!! They worked for 6-7 hours straight without stoppng at all!!!

Bill and Bonnie Crowder took various pictures of different commercial and business real estate properties in Charlotte and Concord, NC. They have taken pictures of daycare facilities, an event planning property, an auto repair facility, and all of the pictures on our website. I was very impressed with the various pictures and the quality. There were many to choose from for our advertising ads. I have also referred them to personal friends for family events and weddings. They edit and go through and put the best ones together to present. It only took a couple of days to receive the finished photos in cd or the actual photos. I will use them for all of our photography work.

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!

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!
