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!

Diane is a great photographer who made me feel very comfortable in front of the camera allowing the diva in me to shine through. There was a quick turnaround time in viewing the proofs and placing my order. She also was very responsive to my email, phone, and text inquiries. I would highly recommend Diane to friends and family.

Eleanor was a pleasure to work with! She was responsive, professional, very punctual, caring, and she provided very strong qualifications in her response to me, with her fixed price quote. I would highly recommend her for Videography work, or for Photography.

Mr. Connelly was very professional and accommodating—he was able to fit me into his schedule on a weekend near the holiday season! He was very friendly and knowledgeable about photography (I learned a couple of things from the session to boot). The pictures turned out great and his prices are very fair. I definitely recommend him for anyone looking for high-quality photos (commemorative or otherwise).

We had our engagement photography section with James this past Saturday and it turned out GREAT! James was very easy to work with and most importantly, he made us comfortable in front of the camera. He's also very responsive with messages and any question I had. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family! Thanks Jame!!! ?

I asked Rebecca to take some professional portraits for my LinkedIn profile. While any good photographer can understand lighting, contrast, and composition, I think it takes a really talented one to put the subject at ease. I'm rather camera shy and Rebecca instinctively knew how to make me comfortable. She really knew how to capture a moment that presented me how I'd look in my best light, on my best day. What's more, she was willing to get creative and experiment with different angles and backgrounds that came out quite nicely. Following the shoot she was speedy and professional in follow up. I had the photos very quickly, and they were all very polished. I can't recommend her enough!

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!!

Photo images reflect our memories of life. Those special God given moments in time, if not somehow preserved, are lost forever. Photos become priceless, worth more than silver and gold, if the achievements and growth of those we love are preserved. My objective is to capture the unique quality and personality of the people I photograph and to help each of them remember all those special moments that make the journey of life worth living. Do you have a story to tell? If it has been told before, how can we make it different?
