Steve was excellent. He agreed to take a family portrait while we were all together. Christmas week. He was great corresponding prior to the portrait date and afterwards. The data if the photo shoot he arrived early, scoped out some good places to do outdooor and indoor shots. He was extremely reasonable for the time involved. The photos were available online the next day. We could not be more pleased..., thank you Steve! We highly recommend you!

Kelley is an artist that is self directed and a true professional. She was able to capture the essence of our event perfectly with plenty of candid shots and documenting key moments. We will forever be able to look back at our photographs and recall this magical evening for years to come. Very satisfied.

My experience with Collazo Photography was great. Lu is very friendly and professional! I had procrastinated in getting photos done and from the first time I reached out to her, she was always willing to work around my schedule and made extra time for my family's portrait sessions. I never had to wait on a response from her, and had my pictures back in plenty of time to make copies to meet my deadlines! I made lots of requests, and she exceeded each one! I would definitely recommend Collazo Photography!

Shelli goes above and beyond to meet all expectations. She is very patient and friendly with all clients to make them feel truly unique and special, beautifully handsome and ready for a wonderful experience. She never seems to be in a hurry but strives to offer you quality photography which takes time to get just right. Shelli doesn't mind the time to produce quality workmanship or effort to meet you on location. She offers a variety of services and packages to meet your individual needs and price ranges. She is extraordinarily awesome with kids, families, students and those needing something more than average portrait session. I highly recommend Shelli Craig Photography, LLC.

Commissioned Stephen for professional headshot. The session started/ended on-time in his home studio. He made me feel relaxed and reviewed the look I was going for, and then he coached me to get that look. I have never had a professional picture, or personal picture for that matter, that looked as good as what Stephen created. He truly is a talented artist.

Mike has an uncanny ability to capture and frame content that invokes emotional response. Whether he's photographing street shots, candid shots of his grandchildren, event photography, landscapes, or portraits, the content of each picture moves the soul, provokes thought, or just lightens the viewers mood. Few photographers have the talent he has.

This photographer took a portrait photo of my 15 year old Red and White Irish Setter Riley and captured his spirit so well people say you feel you could reach out and touch him. Extremely good eye and she makes the shoot fun. Amazing that her fee was so reasonable! Look at the photo which I will cherish always.

Can demonstrated her artistic skills last month when she photographed my family at her outdoor studio. After listening to what we had in mind and suggesting additional ideas, she made our large group feel that we were participating in something that was going to be relaxed and fun. Her arrangements were imaginative, a special challenge since we were a large group. I especially enjoyed her photographs from those spontaneous moments in the session. Overall, Can clearly has a talent for capturing the essence of our personalities in her creative photographs. Fantastic work!

Have easily become my go to photography company having worked with them 5x and countless friends and colleagues use them too. They go above and beyond to give you great customer service and great photos. Family portrait sessions have been memorable because they take time to get the right pictures. The premium photo booth is like having a photography studio at the event with the big lights, backdrop, and instant prints, my guests loved it. Definitely not the tacky little enclosed boxes that others tried selling me. In life you get what you pay for so if you want to give your guests a wow factor at your event then this is the company to use.

    We have had the pleasure of working with Kate twice now, and what sets her above others is her patience, creativity and ability to balance the clients ideas with her extensive expertise. She has such an artistic eye for capturing the right moments during her photo shoots. We wouldn't think of having anyone else take our pictures. I don't believe anyone else can deliver the magic like she does!

      I've hired Elina (Pelikan Portriats) for numerous occasions during the past few years. I could not be any more pleased with how the pictures turned out! Furthermore, Elina's vast photography experience and laid back personality helped make each occasion I've hired her to take pictures for fun and effortless. I absolutely recommend Pelikan Portraits to everyone!

        My husband and I wanted to get our family pictures done for the holidays (Christmas 2012). We were able to schedule our session for the first week of November. We chose an outdoor setting for our portraits and we were able to get some fun family photos. This was also the first time that we were able to take our family photos with our dog. Tosha was professional and sweet. It really felt like we were old friends. She listened to our needs and had great ideas for our shoot. We were able to see some of the shots while we were there. Unlike some other places (that I will not mention here), we were not rushed at all. We received our photo order in early December. Plenty of time to send out Christmas cards to our family and friends. We also purchased our first family photo album from her. Tosha worked with us to make sure our album was exactly what we wanted. We are so pleased with it. We will definitely be going back again!

        I employed Red Bridge for a different purpose, to take promotional photos for my 80s tribute band. Rebecca braved the conditions of loud music and drunk patrons to capture; hands down, the best images of us I've ever seen. I have since developed a friendship with Rebecca, and she has done family portrait work for me. My whole family raves about her work. Rebecca is a top-quality photographer and an even better person!
