We couldn’t have been happier with our choice to hire Ray as our wedding photographer! Not only were the photos so beautiful and exactly what we wanted, but the entire experience was great from start to finish! Ray was very responsive from day one. On the actual day of the wedding, Ray and his assistant Casey were timely, well-prepared, and ready for whatever. They made us feel really comfortable and taking the photos felt easy and fun. Ray even picked up on small details, like getting close ups of both of our parents during the ceremony (without us requesting it and none of whom he had even met beforehand). He gave us tips about how to get good shots, like how to best put on our rings during the ceremony, which is something I never would have thought about. He even gave me a “bridal emergency kit”, which had a lot of little stuff in it that came in handy that night (safety pins, bobby pins, even bug repellent wipes). And he brought me appetizers while I was getting my dress bustled for what felt like forever! To top it all off, he got the photos to us in less than 3 weeks. I would highly recommend hiring these guys!

Robyn was amazing!!! I am shy in front of a camera and do not like to be the centre of attention, Robyn made me feel very relaxed and at times I wasn't aware that our pictures were being taken, she is very creative and gifted in her art of photography. I sent Robyn pictures of couples posed for wedding photographs and we captured everyone of them. I am so pleased that we chose Robyn and we look forward to seeing our wedding day from her photographer lens . Bob and Jill Dratler

Josh shot me working with my clients for my website and print advertising. He was truly outstanding. I work with infants and mothers, and he was calm and unobtrusive - really able to capture the magic of our session as though he wasn't even there. Not easy to do with sensitive, curious babies as the subject! I liked him so much I re-hired him to shoot a family get together, and his candids were amazing. He trailed us as we had our afternoon and shot us "documentary" style. Some of the moments he 'caught' spoke so deeply to me that I wept when I saw them. And artistically speaking, I'm no expert, but every image has so much balance as far as composition and colors that they are so pleasing. And yet somehow he also seems to pull these surprise moments out of thin air. You can see on his website - funny, amazing images that just kind of catch you. Also, Josh is so professional - he responds to emails right away, he edits and returns the photos so quickly. I've had other experiences with photographers that have been a nightmare! I recommend Josh wholeheartedly for any commercial or personal photography you might need.

I’ve been fortunate enough to have Danielle photograph personal pictures (for multiple years in a row) of my family along with her being the photographer at my brothers wedding. Every single experience has been amazing. Danielle is personable and professional; she is open to any suggestions but also comes fully prepared with ideas for poses and the best spots for pictures at each venue. She even manages to capture those special moments without being invasive. She is simply the best!!

Michael Jennings is a wonderful photographer. He offers a comfortable atmosphere and throws some humor in there as well. He is fun and really passionate about photography. He makes his clients feel and look amazing through the lens and captures the essence of the projects he works on perfectly! I couldn't think of a better photographer for your next event. He will make you laugh and you will love the photos he produces. He puts a lot of time and effort into making sure that every photo is perfect and that the client is completely satisfied.

    Doreen has taken pictures of my daughter, my dog and my wedding! She caught photos of each occasion that will be moments that can never be replayed but caught in a photo to be remembered forever! My husband and I are truely blessed to know and have Doreen as our photographer. With the pictures of my daughter she took showed details and aspects surrounding my daughter but had a great focus her smile, her wrinkled nose her few teeth everything was brought out in the photos. Doreen helped me with what she may wear that could accent her bright blue eyes and yet to be able to stand out from the nature around her. With the photos of my dog she caught silly moments of him running around and checking out the other farm animals. To catch the moment of curiousity was priceless! The best photos that I am so grateful for was having Doreen as our photographer for our wedding. She set up a check list to ask what I wanted and what I may have forgotten. When the crazy day came she was there and flexiable with accomidating what was occurring and also helped out by organizing other things when my head was in the clouds from the happiness and craziness. Just as the day was ending and all the pictures we agreed upon and many more candid and more, the sun started to set, she was first to notice. The day was suppose to be high winds and hail, having a sunset was a true blessing and to capture that moment with my husband was awesome! I can't not wait to have Doreen take more pictures of my family and maybe some singles of me to feel get my sexy back and give me more self confidence! Because her pictures bring out every beautiful aspect of a person caught at just the right angle!

      I had never even heard of a birth photographer until I started working as a doula and met a photographer who specialized in births. She had some lovely work, but I wasn't sure if it was something that I would want for myself. Then I went to a birth a doula and the couple had hired a birth photographer. I was able to watch her work and noticed that, I actually didn't notice her that much. She stayed in the background and just took pictures as things unfolded. With my recent birth, I was so busy planning a home birth that I didn't really think about hiring a birth photographer initially, but now I am so glad that I had Mariah there. Mariah's Business is Afterglow Exposures www.afterglowexposures.com Just like hiring a wedding photographer, we met with her before the birth and discussed what type of pictures we wanted and things that we didn't want. We discussed our plan for the birth, the where and and who would be there etc. When labor started, I let my midwife know and I let my photographer know as well. I was a little nervous about having someone just watching me while I was in labor, and not just watching me, but watching me with a camera! Everything just worked out so well though. Mariah came when I was far enough along into labor that I was working hard, and I was concentrating on each contraction so much that I didn't even notice her in the room. I didn't feel stared at or watched. Mariah was able to capture some photos that I will always treasure. We have photos of of son's very first breaths, and our first look at him. You can see us falling in love with him in these pictures. I would highly recommend to anyone to consider hiring a birth photographer, it is well worth the investment to remember this special day.

      About

      I bring an artistic aesthetic to my work and the desire to see every client portrayed at their very best.

      About

      I work primarily in a photojournalistic style. Most of the couples who hire me do so because they are seeking an alternative to the traditional portrait approach, and they like what I do for them. My passion lies in documenting your activities with little interference to tell the story of your day by showing the activities, interactions and emotions taking place among the people involved. Your pictures will be unique because they'll show the touching moments that occur throughout the day between you and your fiance and your friends and families. You'll see the natural smiles, frowns, laughs, hugs and tears that can't be captured in a series of posed pictures, and you'll be able to relive your wedding for years to come in photos that not only depict the activities but also reveal the atmosphere and emotions felt throughout the day. I do, however, photograph the couple, bridal party and family groups, known as the "formals", in a more traditional portrait style as a courtesy to the bride and groom. I will also do a fun session with the bride and groom and even the whole wedding party, as long as everyone is actively involved in these sessions. In fact, I'm always willing to try any specific poses you request. I have clients every year who hire me for my photojournalistic style, but who have specific requests for posed pictures, and I have fun doing them.
