Working with Ron was a great experience!! He traveled from OH to IN to photograph our event. He was early, personable, and provided an email with the link to edited photos less than 24hrs later. I already had ceremony pictures from a destination wedding, so I wanted action shots of the first dance, cutting cake, etc. for our reception. If I have another event, he would be the first person I'd ask.

Ron photographed my parents' 50th wedding anniversary celebration last weekend. From our initial contact to delivery of the event photos he was professional and an absolute delight to work with. Because of his talent and hard work, we have a collection of photos from this event that will be passed down to generations. Thank you, Ron!!

Jill was very professional and very patient. The photo shoot that I wanted, was not your traditional shoot. There were several obstacles that had to be over come. I was wondering if it would ever happen. Finally, everything fell into place. The photo shoot I requested turned out perfect. Jill is a great photographer, with great ideas. I am very glad I was able to get together with Jill for this project. I highly recommend her.

The wedding pictures were one of the most important aspects of the wedding to me...other than "the dress" and sure, the groom. Because of the importance of pictures for me as a memory that I could view over and over again to relive the day, I was willing to spend a little money on it than other aspects of the wedding. However, I believe that Sarah's prices are more than reasonable, plus, there is a lot that the customer gets in her packages. First of all, TWO photographers, an engagement sessions, plus all the time that she spends with you photographing your big day. Also, she is friendly and calm...which is a big plus if you are a jittery bride (I was) and have an outspoken, crazy family (me again). She was also helpful in helping me locate a make up artist and locations for shots prior to the ceremony. So my advice to anyone seeking a photographer, check out Sarah's packages and gallery. She is so fun to work with and her pictures are beautiful! Jessica K.

Sarah is so friendly and easy to work with. She spends time listening to what you want and makes sure the pictures are in the style you want. She got some great pictures at both our wedding and later of our son (who wasn't in a very good mood, but she captured the essence of him perfectly). Apart from great photos, an added bonus is that Sarah gives you a CD with all the pictures (whereas some photographers will make you buy prints from them and do not give you all the originals). Sarah kept in touch with me about when the photos would be ready and got them to me in good time. I highly recommend her.

Sarah did an excellent job making me comfortable for my photography session in my own home! She had a lot of great ideas and helped make me feel confident! I would highly recommend her in the future. The only wish for - would be that I know some photographers bring props with them to help change the background and make things look more studio like vs the natural at home environment - either worked for the photos I was going for but having a small home I should have considered alternative background options myself :-) Sarah made the best of it and I loved my pictures!

Mark is a truly fun person and professional photographer. We hired him at our wedding for wedding & engagement photography, videography, and a photobooth! He is extremely flexible and really wants to please the couple! He asked for my Pinterest board and took all of the photos that I was dying to have!!! Our engagement photos were taken & returned to us edited in a matter of hours-- and they are absolutely perfect!!! He asks for your input and doesn't force any photos you do not want. He is ready to go and gets to know you through questionnaires and conversions prior to meeting. Without him, my groom and I would not have thought of so many wonderful poses! The photobooth was the biggest hit! So many props, pictures for everyone, and they even made us a scrapbook of all of the photobooth pictures with guest comments! I LOVED Mark's services and highly recommend to everyone! We will definitely use him again in the future!!

We had Mark's Photo and Video do a photobooth at our wedding this past May 2014. As a bride, I absolutely LOVED how easy it was to communicate and work with Mark from all the planning and preparation to the big event. Our guests truly enjoyed the fun activity of the photobooth and of course taking home the pictures! We were thrilled to have a beautiful album at the end of the night full of all the photos our friends and families had taken! Definitely recommend - wonderful experience and great value! Thank you so much for making our wedding spectacular!

Christina Brown photographed our family of eight. We were on a walking trail & it took approximately one hour. It seemed to go quicker because she made it fun for everyone!! Christina has a great eye for photography, catching all the right poses, the correct lighting, etc. Her ideas for backgrounds & colors are excellent. She was prompt & didn't make us feel rushed at all! She's very professional & yet a lot of fun! The quality of work CKB does is second to none!! I don't think our session could have been any better. Christina went above & beyond what most photographers might do. She was on the ground, in front of us, behind us, etc. We will definitely use her again & we highly recommend her to others!

My Fiance and I had our pictures done by Christina at CKB and we were worried due to the fact that we wanted "action" pictures of us riding on the motorcycle. Christina did an amazing job and the pictures came out better than we have seen in magazines. After that wonderful experience we decided to have her take pictures of our daughters. She made them feel so comfortable and took plenty of time making sure everything was perfect. She even got some awesome pictures of them doing back hand springs and cart wheels. I will never use another photographer except CKB!

She made everyone feel comfortable and did such a great job with all the little kids! She also made sure I got all the photo ideas I had requested! I couldn't be happier with the way they all turned out! I now use CKB Photography for all my family pictures! Christina is an amazing photographer and I would highly recommend CKB Photography!!

Dawn Greenwald proved to be an excellent professional photographer as well as very nice person with whom we felt at ease. Dawn took awesome pictures of our family which consists of 11 people including 2 little boys and an infant. She was creative in setting up the poses at a local park and used the time efficiently. In an hour’s time she took many pictures which with we are delighted. Also, on short notice, she graciously changed our appointment when a time conflict arose in my family. Her expertise in preparing the final photographs was very evident as she presented them to us a week later. I felt her prices were reasonable and that we got more than our money’s worth. I would recommend her to anyone who is looking for a creative, personable, and very competent photographer. Thank you, Dawn! I enjoyed your bio on your website, too – it had a lot to do with our choosing you to take our family photographs.

Dawn is awesome! She is great to work with and went above and beyond. She was able to take my maternity photos on very short notice due to me having to deliver early - and came out on a Sunday morning, Mother's Day, no less, to help me capture a magical time in my life. My daughter's newborn photos came out BEAUTIFULLY. Not only is she friendly and professional, but the finished product is truly exceptional. I have found my family photographer and highly recommend her!

What a wonderful job E Fotography did on our 10th year Anniversary/renewal of vows celebration. I’m a person of show me the money or the proof is in the pudding. However you absorb it, the mood of the party and the moments, laughter and smiles that she captured was just unbelievable. She had a 10 day turn around time on proofs so after a weeks vacation they were done upon our return. Reviewing the slideshow was like reading a book, the details of the pictures in the event told a story. It’s almost like a fairytale but I’m the real Princess and my husband was my real Prince. Her price and package services were affordable, so it allowed me to stay in my budget and that always makes a woman happy and her husband wallet happier! E Fotography is highly recommendable!

E Fotography LLC did a professional job at our 30th wedding anniversary celebration. Photographer was on time, took a large number and variety of pictures, and was friendly and courteous to our guests. The pictures were clear and well framed with all guests being photographed at least once. We purchased a CD and DVD with music of our choice which arrived timely in a nice case. I would change two things: a picture of our home without a vehicle in front and pictures of the hosts placed before others on the DVD. Overall we would hire E Fotography LLC again and would recommend this company to others.

I cannot send out enough glowing praises about Adam and Keli photography. They were absolutely amazing to work with throughout the entire planning and execution of our wedding. One of the things my husband and I were most concerned about in planning our wedding was obtaining a photographer who would take our unique needs and requests as a same-sex couple into consideration, in planning and execution of all the event. The photographer is someone who has a more intimate interaction with the wedding party and guests, and we were blown away from the beginning at how much Adam and Keli cared about making our experience, unique and as fun as possible. From last minute change requests of ours, to missing grooms-people, they rolled with the punches and we could not be more pleased with the results we have seen so far. Their professionalism, friendliness, and desire to go above and beyond to capture our momentous event. We have begun recommending Adam and Keli to friends, and family for all photography needs in the future!

Kara did a great job on our courthouse marriage ceremony photos. She toughed it out in the pouring rain, and our photos look fabulous.

We would definitely hire her again.

We have had Arnaldo as our family photographer for 5 years now. He is such an amazing and talented photographer, capable of capturing authentic moments, which is exactly what you want to keep memories of your family. We had having him for our Christmas shots, for maternity shots, and for all our kids and family photos. He has a special eye and patience with the kids. Arnaldo has the ability to not miss a second of the moment in an incredible way. His energy and passion comes across his job. Also he is so easy-going, respectful and fun in the way he blends in at the event, that you or your guests will not realize they’re being photographed, from funny faces, to wiping away tears, dancing, genuine smiles and profound gestures. We strongly recommend him as a skilled photographer to truly capture the essence of your life moments providing you the best images.

I love pictures, so when it comes to have a professional photographer I strongly recommend Arnaldo. Not only does he do an amazing job, he is a fascinating and creative person to work with. His photos don’t have stiff poses and forced smiles. He captured the moment so unique for our family by giving us the opportunity of using different types of pictures with various backdrops, plus making you feel fun and relaxed. I don’t know how he managed to capture natural and candid photos as well as the posed ones in a way you did not feel yourself being forced to pose and coming out with authentic shots. When it comes to nature, believe me he does an awesome work. I strongly recommend him, he worth every penny!

So if you're looking for an excellent photographer, who is skilled, professional and easy to work with, I strongly recommend Mr Jim Gormely!

Jim was absolutely amazing! Not only is he a great photographer, but he's a really nice person. It doesn't seem like that would be important when looking for a photographer, but I have had friends who have actually gotten into arguments with their photographers on their wedding day and that's the memory that sticks out to them. The only reason I didn't give him 5 stars is because I feel like there could have been more direction as far as how to pose. It felt a little awkward for us because we really didn't know how to stand or what to do, so we were kind of just making it up as we went along. Other than that, I would highly recommend him for your event.
