    I hired Randy to do a few head shots for a medical license application. He was able to get me in within 2 days and he made the entire process very quick and easy. He provided me with professional photos within 48 hours that look great. I will definitely be using him for future projects and would highly recommend him to friends and family.

    We are beyond pleased with the level of service and professionalism Randy provided during the whole process, from our initial meetings to the engagement shoot, to the day of our wedding. It was very evident to us how much pride he takes in his work and his attention to detail. We really admire the thought that he puts into our requests and ideas.

    Thank you!
    Randy was very warm and professional. He took excellent photos at all the perfect angles. We hired him for two hours and still had a bunch of photos to look through. We would 100% recommend him as your future photographer.

    I can not say enough wonderful things about Randy. From start to finish he was always extremely efficient, professional and very kind. He was very reasonably priced (especially in the wedding photographer world). His communication was also great. He would promptly respond to emails and made sure he knew exactly what I wanted. I got all of the photographs that I was hoping for and they came out beautifully. He sent a flash drive with all of my photos that can be printed out easily with different size and resolution. I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a professional photographer!

    Randy did an excellent job on our wedding day. We sat down with him prior and he made sure that all of our expectations were met on our fabulous day. He took his time to make sure that every picture was to the best standard and emailed a few of his favorites later on that evening. They were breathtaking!!!

    Randy is a one of a kind photographer. He fit right in with our family. We felt like he was a guest of ours and by the end of the day he was...he didnt push us or get in the way of our celebrating. We felt comfortable and his pictures came out AMAZING. He was so fast to get back to us before and after the wedding with teasers. We will recommend him to anyone and everyone!

    I could not be more happy with everything! He is very punctual and very pleasant. He captures the best moments and has the best package value. The canvas are like wrapped around shadow boxes which make it look awesome on the wall! The USB you get is gorgeous and you almost don't want to plug it into your computer. The album we purchased was amazing and so were the options. I am more then happy to have shared my special day with him and his assistant!

    Randy was my photographer for my wedding in August and from start to finish, he was amazing to work with! He is so nice, so professional, helpful, courteous and tries to answer as quickly as possible. What drew me to Randy's work was the fact that the pictures were real and seemed like a family or friend took the photos - they were of course a higher quality- but they were staged and too artistic. He caught the people, the love and the fun in the room and that is what was most important about his work. He is so thorough, checking out the venue before the big day, on time and really works with you to get the photos that you want while of course giving his professional opinion. I wanted all the bride/groom and family photos done before the wedding and he completely accommodated me. I also made a big deal about how i wanted to be a part of my wedding and cocktail hour, not posing for pictures continuously and missing out on everything. I even told Randy during the ceremony in the nicest way possible, I don't want to know you are there, I want to be able to dance, eat and drink. He really took it to heart, he got amazing photos of everyone but was never in anyone's face. What shocked me more was the fact that when we got back from our honeymoon, our photos were ready! They were all gorgeous, Randy's gallery and ordering website are so easy to use. He also makes any photo corrections that you need and makes sure you are happy with them before he places your order. The photos come quite quickly too. Overall, I would definitely recommend Randy and if i ever needed photography services again, I would work with him again.

    Randy was a consummate professional. He was a pleasure to work with especially on our wedding day. He was sensitive to my needs and most importantly he takes beautiful pictures! My pictures were in fast and are simply gorgeous. I would highly recommend and will definitely use him again for future events.

    Randy from the Randall Kenneth Photography was excellent, he and his team were early and started photos right away and offered great ideas with the scenery. He is definitely worth the cost. Randy is very accommodating as to your wants and ideas. I chose the Video Fusion which is a combination of video and photos with music. I was able to get a photo album for myself and for the parents. All and all my day was perfect and Randy and his team were wonderful.

    I did two photo shoots with Randy and the pictures for both came out terrific! He knew exactly how to direct me to pose and set up for the best image! The quality and composition of the photos are outstanding. He was wonderful to work with and I definitely recommend him!
  • Noelle D. Dec 6, 2013
    I highly recommend Randall Kenneth Photography! Every single one of our pictures came out amazing, and Randy even asked if he could brush up any imperfections that we found. Both candid and posed pictures were perfect! In addition to the wedding pictures, he also took engagement pictures. They came out beautiful, and my family raved about them so much that I had to order more. When I needed to order pictures, his response was immediate! As far as proffessionalism, you couldn't ask for more. Randy was on time for engagement picture shoot, and for wedding. He even visited our venue before the wedding to ensure he was familiar with the site. When taking pictures, he and his assistant made us feel comfortable. We didn't look stiff at all! It was like a family member was taking our picture. :) I was most impressed with how fast I received my pictures in an online gallery and I even have my own app on my phone to look at the pictures! Any other event I have-Randy will be my photographer!

Q&A

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am continually attending training sessions in various subjects. Photoshop, business classes, photographic lighting, marketing, etc. All of these educations endeavors not only help me, but also help me to provide better services for my clients.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
Photography is a passion of mine and mainly photographing people. Capturing expressions and emotions. Telling a story with pictures is my favorite passion. I am also a technical gear-head. I love to keep up on the latest specs and I have some of the most up to date Canon gear on the market.
What types of customers have you worked with?
I have done weddings, Birthdays, Senior portraits and modeling/individual portraits. Wedding and Birthdays are great because, as a photographer, you get to connect not only with your main client, but also with their families and friends. Of course 90% of my time is spent on my main subject, they still want to have memorable photo's of their family/friends also... not just snapshots.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
When you hire a Photographer there are many things to consider. The first thing we often consider is... "Do we like their work?". You get your first impression of a photographer by looking at their photographs. The second thing you should do is meet or (at a minimum) have a conversation with your photographer. Meeting is the absolute best because voices can sometimes be misleading. Meeting with your photographer and getting to know them, even a little bit, will help you to determine if this is the type of person you want to be around when getting photographed. Once you have gotten these two things out of the way you want to make sure that you are dealing with a professional. First you might want to ask them about their equipment. For an event photographer, the photographer will carry at least two camera bodies, an assortment of lenses and backups for each lens important to the occasion. For a wedding, a professional will be carrying $10,000 or more worth of equipment with them. And lastly, you want to make sure that they carry liability insurance. This helps to cover for any damages caused by the Photographer by accident or through neglect and will help to pay any medical bill if anyone is hurt. While there may be other items that you wish to consider, these items will help you on our way to a successful photo session.
