I had a boudoir shoot with Diane & Christa. From the moment I got there, they were energized, excited & made me feel comfortable. Christa did an amazing hair & makeup job. We had a great time! Diane provided wonderful direction and suggestions. I would highly recommend Chappell Studios Portraits to anyone!! Such a liberating experience that made me feel sexy, beautiful and confident. Would do it again in a heartbeat!!

Rebecca Isenhart is one of the most singularly talented photographers I have ever met. She photographs extensively for my fashion blog and the results are always above and beyond. On top of her technical prowess, Rebecca makes me feel comfortable in my own skin which always makes for better photos. I can't recommend her enough. Her attention to detail and creative spirit are unparalleled. She's able to listen to your vision and help you create it while also bringing her own ideas and experience to the table. If you have the opportunity to work with Rebecca don't give it a second thought, there's no one better.

I don't even know where to start except to say that what a lesson I've learned about the benefits of using a skilled photographer/George when it's time to sell a home. I'm living on the West Coast trying to sell a home on the East Coast! The 1st MLS listing created by our real estate agent was clearly taken with a cell phone camera and were just plain terrible! Considering the only marketing tool for selling a home in rural Vermont is the internet great photos are CRITICAL! Every real estate or private seller should seek out a professional photographer before listing a home. So after seeing the realtors images I was in a panic to find a real photographer. AND I DID! I put in my request at Thumbtack and was speaking to George (no lie) less than 30 minutes later. He listened to my needs drove all the way out to the house, took the most gorgeous pics and even showed the house to some folks that showed up on their own while he was there! Now after our 1st week w/George's new images on our MLS listing we have two offers and more coming daily. Do it right hire a professional! And if you can hire GEORGE!

Essence and her brother were photographers at our wedding and Wow!! She was extremely organized, creative, fun, and she never missed a beat. She was on top of everything and made sure the night went smooth. She knows her stuff and she is very professional! So honored to have them shoot our wedding.

Sootie Studios is run by an absolutely wonderful woman, Meri Belanger. She is the best photographer I have ever been to! Whether it be standing in the snow in the middle of winter, or laying on the ground getting all dirty in the fall, she will do anything to get the right shot. Meri has taken photos of my family and also of me and my boyfriend, and each time it only gets better! She has done my Niece's newborn, 3 month, 6 month, 9 month, 1 year cake smash, and 18 month photos and every time friends of mine ask where I get the amazing photos from. I also did a "trash the dress" photoshoot with my boyfriend which I strongly recommend doing with an old dress because the photos are priceless. Meri also has amazing rates for weddings and regular photo sessions. You won't find the quality photos she takes for the value and price that she offers. She also does memberships which offer many perks, such as getting a 1/2 price session and free prints. If you are looking to get photos done, I would strongly recommend going to Sootie Studios because you can't get a much better deal and photos that you get from Sootie! I would give Sootie Studios a million stars if I could!!!

We haven't received our pictures from Neal yet, but I feel confident about my 5/5 star review from the few he showed us on his camera. Neal was a last minute find for us when I realized that my mother-in-law had put too much thought and effort into our rehearsal dinner to not have professional photos. He hardly asked any questions at all which was Super helpful since our wedding was in a couple of days and we were busy beyond belief when we hired him. He was Amazing at getting everyone's attention for group shots and I feel like he made sure to capture every photo we'd care to have after the event. He came up with some very clever angles and positions. He was also so personable and pleasant to be around. My only regret is that we didn't have him with us for our whole wedding day. Highly recommend!!

James was an excellent photographer to work with, a rare combination of professional and easygoing. He took our engagement photos at Olana, and although he had never photographed there, it was clear to us that he had put in time to research good spots to shoot. Both personable and thoughtful, he helped us feel at ease to capture candid-style photographs. And, most importantly, the photos came out great! Would recommend!

iSmile Studios is the only studio I trust with my head shots as well as my family's photos. Their photographers are personally invested in each and every client. I feel that my personality is reflected in a warm, yet professional manner. I am a valuable woman, a loving mom, a savvy business owner, not just a mere subject at iSmile. And that's what shines through in every image.

I loved working with Emma! I contacted her to take portrait and still photos for my pottery business. Emma also took several action shots during a throwing session. Emma has a knack for putting people at ease, so I felt very comfortable during the photo shoot, which I thought might feel awkward. Emma captured excellent shots very quickly. I was amazed at how fast she got the photos to me and the quality of her work. Her prices are very reasonable and she is such a good listener, I got everything I was hoping for --and more! The photos just sparkle with her artistic eye! I highly recommend her work and when I need a photographer again, Emma Rogan will be my choice!

I worked with Matt for my daughters portraits she really wanted. He was very helpful with ideas and when we got to the location, Matt made us feel comfortable and worked really well with my daughter. The photos came out amazing and we were all really happy.

Stacey recently was my photographer for my wedding. She did an amazing job. She was able to capture the photos I had described to her that meant a lot to me. She worked well with my large wedding party by getting everyone to focus on the picture we were trying to take (even when the younger kids in the party had meltdowns). She handled everything professionally and got the job done. I would definitely use her again for a photo shoot.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
