My experience with Jennifer was great, she is really responsive and quite often you would get a response right away if you contacted her. I had her work on some portrait-kind of photos of myself for my website, they came out really good, she was also flexible enough to reschedule my appointment promptly when I asked her to. She seems to a person with lot of passion for what she does .Also person who has experience with photography and its techniques and knows how to use them. The missing star is me being super-critical for her not giving me a heads up on the promised photo delivery day being missed . But apart from that I would certainly recommend her.

Andy was very professional, but friendly too! He made it easy and fun, not like other stressful photo sessions in the past. He was patient with the kids and had some really good ideas, not cheesy forced poses. He did some more artistic shots mixed with some classic family portraits. I would definitely recommend Andy for anyone, but for families especially. It is no easy task to get these active kids all sitting for a photo and looking their best, so we are very grateful Andy was so wonderful!

Shawn did an awesome job shooting our wedding photos! We have a great mix of traditional and creative shots that really capture our special day in a fun and memorable way. There is one particular shot of us kissing that we get asked about all the time - it was all Shawn! If you're looking for an affordable, professional wedding photographer, Shawn is your guy. He is reliable and will work with you so you get the exact mix of photos that you want. He will not disappoint you!

We hired Lily to take family portraits as a Christmas present for my mother. I was nervous because I had booked everything online from Washington, DC, but Lily was really responsive and kindly replied to every confirmation I sent! She came to our home in Elba, NY for about an hour and took a lot of portraits in various locations around our house. I cannot say enough about Lily - she was kind and thoughtful, but also willing to provide a little direction (that we definitely needed). She was very punctual, and did a really wonderful job. The best part was, she got our photo CD out to us almost immediately! My mom was really excited to get them the day after Christmas. They turned out beautifully and we were really impressed with Lily's work! We wouldn't hesitate to hire Lily again in the future. She has a great career ahead of her. Thanks so much Lily!!

We used Tony twice. The first photography session was with my two boys. He was personable and made them feel comfortable. He got some superb shots indoors in his own studio and outdoors. The second session was for a family portrait which he photographed our family in a park. These pictures also came out wonderful! His years of experience show in dealing with people and the end result of his work. I would highly recommend him.

Our photographer has captured the most precious moments in our boys lives. Her photos compared to the standard studio sessions are a breath of fresh air! We have NEVER walked away disappointed.

Josh was absolutely AMAZING! His work was SO above and beyond! First off, we went with the middle package. He let us use two hours (of the eight) to cover our rehearsal dinner! He also met with the pastor independently to discuss the photo regulations in the church. Then he went to the rehearsal so that he could take test shots and find the best places to stand for the ceremony! He did his own photo both-type deal at the rehearsal dinner so that people could all get shots of themselves! It was BRILLIANT! After, even though I asked to have him from 9:30 to 3:30, he showed up at the ceremony site before I did (at 9!) to take pictures of the venue! Not only was he there, but he had brought a phenomenal assistant for free! He took all the pictures, and the assistant worked on the lighting/getting people to focus! He got INCREDIBLE getting ready shots of me with my family. The ceremony pictures are STUNNING, and he was NEVER in the way! We got great pictures of the first kiss/rings/our exit... He was everywhere at once, and he never missed a single great shot! I gave him a shot list of formal family/bridal party pictures (it was long) and he got multiples of EVERY shot to make sure they were perfect! We met him down by the lake, and he did shots of me and my groom! They all came out AMAZINGLY! He listened to our ideas, and had some brilliant ideas of his own! He also did an AMAZING job at the reception! He got every picture we could have ever hoped for! We got multiple STUNNING shots of the cake, tons of pictures of us cutting it! The toasts were awful, but Josh managed to only get pictures of when we were smiling and laughing, and the one sweet moment in the best man's speech! He also took additional (goofy) pictures on the chaise lounge at our reception! We all had SO much fun. And additional pictures outside! So we ended up leaving the reception at 4:30... Josh gave us an extra hour of coverage, and we didn't even realize we were over because he didn't rush us at all! He was masterful and dedicated to getting the best shot possible! For $950, Josh was a STEAL. I was expecting pictures that looked like they came out of a Sears photo session, but they look INCREDIBLE. They are stunning, easily the quality of photographers I looked at that were three or four times as much. Best of all, he gave us 10 or so proofs in "trendy" washes (super faded, super bright), around 20 in black and white, a couple blue washes, a couple sepia washes, and the other 200 proofs (so just the best of the best) were digitally enhanced but classic pictures! For our 8 hour wedding, we got 237 enhanced proofs, and we get a CD with full reproduction rights for ALL pictures taken at the event! Like I said, Josh is a STEAL for a photographer, insanely brilliant, and I would HIGHLY recommend him!

I am extremely pleased with my experience with MPP. I hired MPP for a family photo shoot for my son's first birthday. Jake was easy to communicate with, arrived early to the photo shoot location, was very professional, and listened to what I wanted during the photo shoot and offered suggestions. The CD with pictures arrived yesterday and I love the photos! I will definitely use MPP again and highly recommend others to hire MPP.

I was very pleasantly surprised to see the quality equipment he had in his studio. The photo shoot remained relaxed and professional the entire time. He tweaked my photos in a way that made hid my minor blemishes but essentially was still ME! I went with my children and husband who were all very comfortable in the studio annex rooms. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience. Top rate professional. I do believe we've found our family photographer.

Colleen Snyder is an excellent photographer. I couldn't have been more pleased with her work when she recently updated my professional portrait. She has also taken beautiful photos of our family that we have just loved. I have worked with many photographers in my profession and Colleen is on-par with the best of them. Janine DeCook

I'm so impressed with the work I've seen Amy coming out with. She really seems to instinctively know how to bring out the best in her subjects - although I've never met her in person, I feel like I know her children's personalities so well, she really lets them shine with her photography. I can only wish that she lived closer to me, I'd so love to have her do my family shots!

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
