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!

We had family portraits taken with everyone, which were for my inlaws for Christmas. Tamisha took great shots of all of us. She was very patient as we have small children. I was very appreciative of this also. We will recommend her to all our friends and family! I look forward to working with her again.

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.

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.

I did a photo session with Rodrigo and had a makeup artist which Rodrigo suggested. It was the best experience I've had with any photographer including my wedding photographer! He made me feel relaxed cause I was nervous in front of the camera. The makeup artist did a wonderful job (I wish I could remember her name!) on my Asian eyes and stayed to help with the session. He has a great eye for what looks best and guided me so he could get the best shot. I could really tell he has a passion for what he does cause he was a perfectionist. I love my pictures

Couldn't be happier I hired Jessie! I did a boudoir photoshoot with her and I'm thrilled with the photos; they're stunning and exactly what I wanted. She really listened to what my vision for the shoot was while giving her professional guidance and direction. Not to mention that I had so much fun taking them. I was pretty nervous before the shoot, but Jessie was so friendly and really made me feel comfortable. She even helped me get ready and after the first few pictures my nerves were gone. She's a talented photographer who was great to work with and I highly recommend her!

I worked with Doug Van De Zande for ten years while I was a Creative Director at a local ad agency. Doug's talent, eye for detail and creative photography skills are what make him stand out above the rest. He works well collaboratively, stays on schedule and on budget. While at the agency, we created an award-winning brochure for a Raleigh custom home community. I have referred others to Doug, and the feedback from my colleagues has been outstanding. I highly recommend Doug Van De Zande, especially for portrait, landscape and home photography.

I highly recommend David Kimball Photography. We have worked with David twice... our son's senior portraits and for family Christmas portraits. Both times we were impressed with his creative eye and attention to detail. David is fun to work with and goes above and beyond to capture the perfect shots!

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.

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!
