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!

George did an engagement photos shoot with my fiancé and I. He was very easy to work with and very good at what he does. We took a lot of pictures and he chose some great places and poses, we were thrilled with the pictures when we got them. The editing was beautiful, the colors vibrant and the effects he used on some of the pictures was pretty cool. I deffinetly recommend George to other people searching for a photographer. He's very talented and were very pleased with our experience!

We hired Ken for a large family portrait shoot as well as some smaller family shots. From the first contact I received from him he was very responsive, professional and answered all of my questions. During the shoot he kept it light and casual and allowed us some direction as to what we wanted and also ideas he had. This kept our photos fun, comfortable and very natural which is what we wanted. He gave great directions to all ages and remained personable through the whole process. Our photos are beautiful and I love that although we know he can print out high quality he does not try to upsell you om anything. I would absolutely recommend and hire Ken again!

Debbie recently photographed our daughter's Bat Mitzvah and we would highly recommend her. She easily moved around the function with our guests, was friendly and nice and took great pictures of the event. She knew what to do and what pictures we would want to have for an album to remember the day. Her price was fair and she sent us all the pictures within a few days of the event. If you are looking for a friendlya and knowledgeable photographer for any party or special occasion Deb is your best choice in the area. Would not hesitate to use her again in the future.

We hired Todd for our wedding and I couldn't have been happier. About two months before our wedding I broke my leg and had to change what I originally wanted to do for the photos. Todd was amazing in finding a location that was so close to our location and easy to travel to for me. They made for some of the most beautiful pictures. He went out of his way and caught photos I don't even remember! I would recommend him to anyone. Thanks Todd for the gorgeous photos!!!

Words cannot describe how wonderful Stacey is, she is very professional but besides that she is great to work with, she has a wonderful personality and her work speaks for itself. Stacey made us feel so comfortable. The moments she captured of us and our event were truly magical - straight from a magazine! Not only did she photograph us, but she also educated us on how to position a photo shot in order to utilize all of the surrounding elements. The pictures came out fantastic and we now have memories that will last a lifetime. We highly recommend her services for any event you may have.

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.

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!!

I started going to iSmile Studios when my oldest daughter was 9 months old after getting frustrated with other “mall studios”. They didn’t really care about their clients....they just took pictures and sold you a package Once i started going to iSmle i resized how much they actually cared about everyone that they did business with. After 2 visits they remembered my name and my daughters name! As my family grew so did my business with the studio When my husband and i decided to finally get married I inquired with local wedding photographers BUT never gave a thought to ask Stephanie if she shot weddings. Well to my surprise and with a big smile she said YES!!! My wedding was one of the best days of my life and i really think it’s because of all of the beautiful pictures i have to look back on. I do not like being photographed BUT Stephanie makes sure to make everyone comfortable and happy with the end product. Stephanie and her staff are the best around! Every year our holiday seasons are amazing! I recommend all my friends to go to the studio and I give iGrow memberships when a friend is having a baby.

I have had the absolute pleasure to work with Stephanie in an educational setting for a photo shoot as well as a private photo shoot for me and my boyfriend. She is by far the most careful, thoughtful, diligent, and talented photographer in the Capital Region and beyond. She truly knows what she is doing and has an amazing demeanor, making all of her clients feel comfortable while having their photos taken. It is so evident that she loves what she is doing - it is her gift! So let her share it with you - you will not regret it!

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 love the photos that Kara has taken of my family! Kara captured shots of my family that show their true personalities! Our family portraits and the senior photos and headshots she took of my daughter are so special because of Kara's eye for detail and the easy way in which she finesses her subjects into loosening up and letting their true selves come through in her pictures!

Jimmy reached out to me right away - and communicated well. We set a time and a location, and he was right on time, happy and ready to join us for the time we wanted to get some great photos - so easy going - listened to us and ideas we had - and was very enjoyable to work with. He took a ton of shots - and then within 48 hours, we had our private gallery up online for us to download and do as we wish with the photos! Great shots! Talented photographer. We'd use him again in a heartbeat. We are really happy with the photos and have some family favorites that we will use for always - and we won't have to pay a fortune for the rights to the pictures, which is great!!! If you want to have a photographer capture your most precious and valued treasures in life - your family - hire Jimmy - he's really good at what he does - and he's quick - said we'd have our pictures within 72 hours and delivered in 48 hours - we are really grateful - and bonus - WE HAD A GREAT TIME!!! - Williston, Vermont - Family of Four

Kat is a fantastic photographer. She easily navigated the photo session and included all of the props and locations I wanted to use in the photo shoot. She waited patiently and even helped with baby outfit changes! She takes her time and genuinely wants to get the pictures that you envisioned, but also has a great eye for different angles and creative pictures. One of my favorite pictures was a completely unplanned and candid moment I was having with my daughter that Kat took while I was giving my baby a break between pictures. She really captured my daughter’s personality in the photos. I highly recommend!

We are so thankful to have had Evan and his team video our wedding day. They were so professional all day long and at most times unnoticeable which helped us capture the most candid memories. Their system of putting a mic on my groom made our vows and little conversations come out crystal clear. We will cherish the video taken by his team our whole lives and thankful we put the memories in their hands. I highly recommend Evan and his team with Candidly Beth.

I can only say amazing things about BnS Photography! Our family has had two shoots with Brandi, and both times we were blown away with her ability to capture dozens of incredible shots. First, Brandi has an eye for a beautiful background of colors and textures. She was fantastic working with my three year old daughter, providing a fun environment for her to just be her little self, and there was Brandi, capturing all her spirit and energy. BnS provides digital proofs extremely fast, and we are always thrilled with the photographs. Brandi's artistry and talent mixed with her fun and easy going personality make for a top notch family photo shoot. What a blessing to have our home filled with beautiful family photographs shot by BnS. I'll treasure them for the rest of my life.

Shane was extremely professional, he was able to bring my vision to life and made it an overall excellent experience for me. He made me feel comfortable throughout the entire process. From the beginning, Shane demonstrated a dedication to the project by meeting with me to discuss the shoot beforehand and being open with communication throughout the process, so I felt truly heard. He is a talented photographer, and provides a fun, exciting, comforting and professional environment. The end product was exactly what I wanted, and I am impressed with his talent and skill as a photographer as well as his commitment to making it a memorable experience. He put me at ease, made me laugh, and provided a beautiful final product. I will definitely be recommending Shane in the future.

I worked with Nate Whitchurch to get some professional photos for my Executive Coaching and HR consulting web site. I firmly believe that "cameras hate me", and I do not photograph well at all. Nate helped me get beyond that and I am very happy with the results. I have also received many positive comments on the photos as well. You can see them yourself at www.AthenaCoaching.com. Nate Whitchurch gets my strongest recommendation!
