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!

I loved working with Emma! I contacted her to take portrait and still photos for my pottery business. Emma also took several action shots during a throwing session. Emma has a knack for putting people at ease, so I felt very comfortable during the photo shoot, which I thought might feel awkward. Emma captured excellent shots very quickly. I was amazed at how fast she got the photos to me and the quality of her work. Her prices are very reasonable and she is such a good listener, I got everything I was hoping for --and more! The photos just sparkle with her artistic eye! I highly recommend her work and when I need a photographer again, Emma Rogan will be my choice!

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.

Photographing 25 men women and children. His helper, Angela, took beautiful photographs and had to work under crazy conditions with a steep hill. She did a fabulous job carting stuff up and down the hill. we offered to help, but she refused. The pictures turned out so nice.

James was an excellent photographer to work with, a rare combination of professional and easygoing. He took our engagement photos at Olana, and although he had never photographed there, it was clear to us that he had put in time to research good spots to shoot. Both personable and thoughtful, he helped us feel at ease to capture candid-style photographs. And, most importantly, the photos came out great! Would recommend!

I hired Kristi to take a family portrait of my crazy rambunctious family. she came to my house and was very open to our suggestions, and she was very reliable. The picture quality and price was the amazing. Kristi kept in contact with me frequently and kept me informed. I will never need another photographer as long as Kristi remains in business.

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.

He has been to my house several times and the pictures he has taken have captured the whole event at the perfect moments. The last party he attended he captured a father and son reunion and words cant describe how overwhelmed we were to be blessed with those moments. Tim is going to my photographer for my wedding this October and I can not wait to see yet another wonderful job by my dear friend. He has very reasonable prices and there is no one else I would recommend to have the the perfect moment captured by.

He was very professional and very comfortable to work around. He made taking pics fun for everybody at my wedding. He did a perfect job editing the pictures and went out his way to make sure I got my pics and sent a preview of pics for me to look at before I received all of them. I would recommend him to anybody who needs a excellent photographer. Definitely gonna book him again!!

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!
