I am so grateful to have had amazing service and responsiveness from Rydeski Photography. I have hired photographers before who need to be coached on what to do and when and who to find... Stephanie was self sufficient, incredibly observant, and literally made my job as a conference planner a thousand times easier. The photos are spectacular and I received them in just two days! I appreciate your attention to every little request I had and your kind, approachable attitude throughout the day.

Stephanie is amazing. She got my 3 year old to not only take a picture (he usually freaks out or meltsdown), but she got him to smile and pose. He really opened up to her after a short amount of time. Our family picyures turned out more amazing than I ever could have imagined. Stephanie will be our family photographer from now on!

We met with Diana Diaz and she lead us out to the photo shoot location. We wanted to go to the Bosque. The location she took us to was great! The experience was fun and she got some great shots. See photos below! I would hire her again and have already recommended her to friends. Very affordable. I do wish she would have communicated with us a little better about meeting time and because we didn't have time to go to 2 locations as she had originally planned. Also, I wish she would have encouraged people to smile more especially specific members of our group. This would have allowed us to have better choices for the large group shots. Also, if she would have also reminded everyone to look at the photographer a little more. I didn't post any of our large group due to some privacy issues but we did get a few good large group shots but they would have been much better if everyone would have been smiling.

Diana is an excellent photographer, she was very flexible during the photography section. I was not from Albuquerque Diana helped me to find great locations to get pictures. In addition she did provide all photographs on time. Diana was generous enough to provide all pictures taken during the section which will give you an opportunity to edit additional pictures. I will definitely recommend Diana for personal photography needs. (FYI Edits are average)

Diana is a very kind and very talented photographer! She came to our home and took great pictures of our family in several settings. She even got some amazing shots of our littlest member who refused to join us in our picture-taking! We highly recommend her. Fantastic work Diana!!!

Mitch photographed my wedding for 3 hours. He did a great job and people told me he did a good job without even seeing pictures. They must've noted him taking a lot of pictures. The pictures were awesome and he had his own lighting equipment and everything. He's nice and funny. We lost the wedding shots list the day of so he came up with his own ideas on the spot. All for the fraction of the price of other photographers online. I recommended him to a friend of mine getting married in a couple months and I'll probably ask him to do portraits in the future.

Mitch is an awesome photographer and very professional. He really seems to care and spends a lot of time and preparation to get the perfect shot and all of his edits are of the highest quality. I highly recommend you use Mitch Tillison Photography to other models, weddings, engagements, senior portraits or for any of your photography needs!

What you see is what you get. Incredibly talented photographer. Intuitive with color and light giving the best possible result. He is of no pretense. He has a welcoming spirit and a love for nature and the world around us. I believe that his spirit is what gives his photos that extra "something".

Caleb and his assistant, Sarah, were AWESOME! First of all, I had reached out to 2 other photographers I knew of and was becoming frustrated not hearing back from either. Caleb responded to my post within an hour or so. I was impressed with his portfolio and professionalism, along with a reasonable price. It was great getting to know Caleb and Sarah during the photoshoot time. They made the process easy and fun, and I'm thrilled with the results! Caleb also had a quick turnaround time that was very much appreciated. Highly recommend for a great Albuquerque area photographer!

Caleb and his team were our photographers for our daughter's December 2016 wedding. Caleb was attentive, professional and creative with his shots. He dresses professionally, which we loved as I've been to several weddings where the photographer came dressed very scruffy! He is responsive to phone calls and e mails and stays in touch with you. The photos are beautiful, modern and stylish. We won't hesitate to call him for our next daughter's wedding. Many of our guests came and mentioned how great they tough the was too.

My experience with Allen at Winstonfoto was outstanding in every regard. He scheduled my photo shoot promptly and at a convenient time. Allen was professional, respectful, patient, and he had that unique ability to put one at ease. Allen's efforts in providing me a series of head shots was above and beyond what I had expected. He is a talented photographer and exceptional at his craft. I will return to Winstonfoto for any of my future photography needs.

I had a great experience with Dooneys Photography. They were professional and very accommodating. They got there over an hour early to get scenic shots and setup the best possible scenes for the pictures. I had a surprise engagement setup where Donney was taking pictures of us before, during and after the proposal. My girlfriend/fiance had no idea they were there taking pictures of us until after I proposed and introduced them to her. They were a delight to talk to as well. They were very personable and talked about some of the things to do on vaction. The pictures came out great. We had a huge selection to choose from and some photos they even photoshopped. I would definitely use them again. GREAT EXPERIENCE!

My 30th birthday photo shoot with Dooneys Photography was fabulous. They were friendly and professional and my husband and I were comfortable with them from the start. Dan and Michelle are an awesome team - some of the shots we got were outstanding! So creative and very open to my ideas too. I absolutely love all my photos and am so happy I hired Dooneys Photography to help capture and celebrate this milestone in my life. Great value for my money, fun experience and fantastic customer service. I would definitely hire Dan and Michelle again and recommend their photography service to others.

Dooney's Photography did an amazing job. They are very professional and were willing to work around our wants and needs when setting up our appointment. They really have an eye for scenery and style and produced the exact pictures we were looking for. During shooting they make you feel very comfortable and give you great ideas for poses based on scenery. They also gave us plenty of images in which to choose from before picking and editing the final ones. We are looking forward to using them in the future and would highly recommend them to anyone

We had a large family group...my husband and I plus our three children and their families (12 total). It is rare that we are all in the same place at the same time. Irene came to our home the day after Thanksgiving to accomodate our scheduling challenges. She selected three different areas that would work for the pictures. Two were in the house and one outside. We shot the indoor pictures first. She took pictures of the whole group and then the smaller family groups. It was great to be able to look at the pictures as she took them because adjustments lighting and position could be made on the fly. We were done in two hours...exactly as she predicted. Needless to say, we had many great pictures to choose from. I made a list of our favorites and Irene edited them. We put all 200+ images on our computers. This is quite different from other photographers who 'own' your pictures after they take them! Thank you Irene! We will absolutely have you back next time we want to have pictures taken.

Irene Fertik shot our unorthodox outdoor wedding celebration on a ranch in Malibu...the ceremony included a Dance around a Maypole and then a Circle Dance that included almost all the 80 plus guests...Irene was able to capture the spirit, mood and beauty of the day as well as getting close up images of my husband and I gazing into each others eyes..something that she suggested to us and went out of her way to make the photos very special to us! The quality of the pictures were superb . I can honestly say I don't think she could have done anything better...we loved her work.

As the former editor of USC's faculty/staff weekly I worked closely with our photographer, Irene Fertik. Whether the assignment was to capture the essence of a researcher's work through a single image, to shoot a campus event, or to provide a portrait of a top administrator, Irene always came through with imaginative photographs that brought out the best in people, places, and even works of art. In addition, as a freelancer, she did a great job photographing my niece's wedding in San Diego!

After working with Phil and Janet, I realized that they both were not just in it for the business, but we also made a great relationship with the two. On a business standpoint, Phil and Janet did an excellent job with their photos. Every photo was well thought out and precise! I could not thank Phil and Janet enough for all the help they provided and the great service they offered. Within this transaction, my wife and I also made two great friends. Phil and Janet have been the most amazing individuals we have worked with in a while because they took the time to get to know us!! For the price, they did better than anyone I could think of who would have attempted the photos. Overall, Phil and Janet are the most talented photographers I have met and worked with and are amazing people to make a relationship with!!! Recommended 150%!!! Thank you guys for all your generosity and kindness!!!

Phil and Janet were very professional and friendly from the beginning. They actively listened to our needs and went the extra mile whenever necessary. They showed up to our wedding rehearsal early to plan things out in advance and also helped us create a schedule for the wedding day itself. Phil is also pretty good with a camera and Janet provides good support with lighting while on site with clients. The photos came out great and the end result made my wife and parents very happy. I would highly recommend their services for any photography needs.

I think the most important statement I can make about JR Photoworld is that I plan to use his services again the next time I need a professional and talented real estate photographer. I would strongly recommend him to my friends and family or anyone needing a professional and competent photographer. He was very precise on the cost estimation, and conducted a thorough and successful series of photo shoots, including very early in the morning when the NM sun is at its best for photography. Jackie works in a structured and disciplined manner to develop a complete photo shoot and post-shoot editing in perfect harmony with the character of the property. His knowledge of photographic tricks and techniques is truly impressive. Unfortunately, I have experienced more bad professional photographers than good, so I am extremely happy to share my good fortune in finding JR Photoworld. I am pleased to highly recommend JR Photoworld to anyone with having the need for a talented and reliable photographer.

To be completely honest. I actually gotten his information from a great girl friend of mines. So I knew already in my heart he would be great! At the time I had already had a wedding photographer but no video photographer and hadn't thought of one. It was such a quick last minute decision to change from my first choice. But I must say I gave it to God and went with him (Lemar). That being said, I praise his hospitality. He went above and beyond to make our day the most elegant and beautiful day ever! We married at the Botanical Gardens downtown Denver on the 7th of October 2016. He made his mission to capture all the excitement of it all. I cannot emphasize much more because my brain is fired up to this point wrapping it all together still; but I must say it is very much needed to have a video photographer for any special event such as a wedding. Five thumps up....hands down!!!! We are so pleased..... even my sister who is getting remarried in April wishes she could is him but she stays out of state. Thanks again Lemar

Lise Watkins is a multi- talented genius designer. I met and worked with her when she photographed an event I had in ABQ, NM. Since then, Lise has been my go- to for anything having to do with visual marketing for my company. She created my logo, web site and continues to consult on ongoing marketing campaigns for my business, which has increased profitability by 500% since Lise came on board. She has incredible skill, is an efficient worker, and a joy to work with. I can not reccommend Lise enough. She will literally change your business with her insight.
