What an amazing experience! Ray and his assistant Brandon were awesome! My husband and I had such a terrible experience with our engagement photos so we decided to look into a legit photographer. My first conversation with Ray was really blunt; I told him that I'm a "bigger girl" but I still know there are ways to make me look beautiful on my special day. Ray sent me several albums of some plus size brides he had shot before and I was blown away by the beauty of his photos. Communication was also never an issue. Even though we booked online I talked with him via phone, email and Facebook several times before the wedding. After the wedding he messaged me right away with updates and awesome sample photos! On the day of the wedding Ray made sure to stay attentive and he started to show me several of the raw photos he was taking throughout the day. After awhile I just told him to stop because I no longer had any worries about the quality or beauty of my photos. Ray was also super flexible. He asked about photos we wanted and also have great direction. I was glad to not have to overthink. He had many wonderful posing and prop ideas that turned out to be some of our favorite photos. As if that weren't enough Ray had amazing turn around time! We were married Saturday and had the photos by Tuesday! They are all so beautiful and there are so many wonderful candid and unique shots. Overall, my husband and I will definitely be using and recommending Ray to anyone and everyone in the future. He was professional, punctual and an all around a pleasure to work with!

Review: A friend recommended Tom for wedding photography. We couldn’t be happier we chose him. Not only did her get some incredible photos, he was very easy to work with and put everyone at ease. We really liked the slide show he played during the reception of the ceremony and formal shots. He also put our wedding up on a beautiful website, where our friends and family could view the whole wedding and purchase prints. And he was one of the most affordable photographers that we looked into.

Plus1 Photography was great! We had soo much fun with the 3 of them! Yes I said 3! All my guest commented on the availability of a photographer for every special moment! During the reception they were on the dance floor with us snapping photos and being part of the crowd too! The ability to multitask was amazing! Best I town and stayed for the whole reception, I have been told this is a bonus!

Getting good pictures of our 2.5 yr old twins can be a difficult thing, when they don't want to sit still or smile at the camera (at the same time anyway). We used Kidd Media Productions for a 30 minute mini session at a Christmas Tree Farm and they were very patient and understanding with the boys, even putting videos of Thomas the Train near the camera to make one of them smile. As a result of this patience, we received some great photos for our Christmas cards this year. I would definitely recommend them to anyone else looking for a photographer, especially if they have young children.

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.

Treva has such a lovely presence and is very intuitive. I felt very comfortable being in the essence of the moment when being photographed by her. As a result, I now have some of the most beautiful moments of my life captured on film which is a gift I get to experience everyday. Treva is super versatile she's helped me create a beautiful collection of photographs that include, engagement, wedding and business.

Stephen did a fantastic job photographing or wedding. Not only were we thrilled with the results, we were also impressed with his patience and professionalism. He was adaptable when members of the wedding party were running late, and was able to get all of the shots we had originally asked for. He stayed at the reception well into the night and made sure we were updated on his progress with editing. All in all, Stephen is a great choice for a wallet-friendly wedding photographer.

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!!

    Wendy is amazing at photography and catching those perfects moments, and even more so is a true artist when it comes to digital imaging and enhancments to get the best picture quality possible. Lets not rule out the amazing customization she can do to virtually give you exactly what your looking for in your photos. As a mother herself she is amazing at shooting toddlers, children, and family portraits. Looking at some of her other photos she is indeed good with wildlife and outdoor shots along with sports and music venues. her wedding photos are amazing as well. I will use her time and time again.

    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.

      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.

        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!
