Everything about Harry is GREAT! I would book him any time again without a doubt! He is the best photographer you could have for any event! He is a true professional, stays in contact, respects your wishes, and works with them. At the same time he has a vision, he knows how to talk to people, how to guide them. He has a very fun personality, too. The bridal party loved him! They took fun pictures later the night having a blast. He was always there to catch the right moment. He also brought an assistant with him. We felt very good and relieved having him on our wedding day to catch all the special moments. Harry thank you so much for everything, you are fabulous!!!

The November Company has helped me with Fashion show Videography, and other Photography. I am very impressed with the quality of work The November Company puts out. Its phenomenal! I am very happy with the results. Not only is the quality of his work outstanding, but his willingness to get the job done efficiently, and in a timely manner is impressive. Very professional! Quality, Punctuality, and Accountability are my top three things I demand to encounter when seeking a professional photographer/videographer. This will be my "go-to" company for any other production needs I may have in the future. I highly recommend The November Company to anyone seeking a first-rate exprience!

Maria is the perfect combo of an extremely talented photographer, that is easy to work with and reasonably priced. Maria did our engagement and wedding photography, and I'm sure we will look to her in the future for family and other photography needs. Maria does a great job of capturing moments, and is so considerate of the pictures YOU want, not just what she likes to take. Other photographers I have looked at seem to focus on taking one "type" of photography, but Maria has a great range and is happy to take the "posed" photos that parents and grandparents love, and the more modern and candid shots that we liked. We have also referred her to friends who have enjoyed working with her!

I literally cannot even express how amazing Travis was during the entire photo shoot process. Everything from making us feel comfortable and open to different poses. It was clear from his sample pictures that he knows what he's doing, and his price was completely reasonable. I also loved his business model how we got every single picture he took instead of just being forced to choose a few like most photographers do. Overall, I can't complain about one thing. He was flexible during scheduling (even though I was running late) and wonderful during the whole editing process (he would send me surprise sneak peak pictures while editing). Everything was flawless. I would highly recommend his services!

I have worked with Jace multiple times. He has an excellent eye and his photo processing and effects are fantastic. He is by far one of the best photographers in central Ohio. He also does fantastic HD video.

Doug is awesome. He does a great job doing videography and creating special videos for weddings. With a photographer as what my wedding was they would be there doing everything they needed to do without interrupting the photographer. I can't wait to see the video that they will create from the wedding, but seeing past videos they will do an amazing job. I highly recommend Doug as he is very professional, punctional, does a great job, good guy and has a lot of fun doing it. Not only that they even stayed a little longer than we contracted them for yesterday and that was awesome. Basically going above and beyond to make sure every detail of the wedding is recorded. Thanks Doug for everything you do.

Chloe was absolutely amazing. Not only is she an amazing photographer, she's a fabulous human being. She fit seemlessly into our day, and with a group of only 9 people, that's really something. I couldn't recommend her more.

Kelly has now been my photographer of choice for the past 7 years! As an actor, a head shot is such an important tool for the acting craft. Kelly's innate sense of capturing authenticity & personality while also being able to analyze the best angles for the most flattering photos is quite appreciated! Thank you, for the dozens of photo shoots, which have all been fantastic! Wishing for you the very best in your many future professional photography endeavors!

I originally contacted Bobbie & Scott to hire a photographer for our wedding, but we also ended up hiring them to do our linens, centerpieces, and they also set up our memory table and candy buffet. These 2 went well beyond our expectations - so much so that our wedding party and guests all commented on how fantastic and professional they were as well as how beautiful everything looked. I will be the first to admit that I was not the easiest bride - I was not difficult, I just did not have a "vision" on a lot of wedding details and Bobbie went above and beyond to try and figure out what would be best for our wedding based on the minimal information she was able to drag out of me about what we liked and disliked:-) I am a very simple girl who does not require a lot of bells and whistles, and Bobbie did an excellent job of giving me options that were right up my ally. Our centerpieces were beautiful and our candy buffet and memory table were set up perfectly (and all I did was give them a box of stuff to "figure out"). They even had their own special touches to add to both tables which fit in nicely. Bobbie also had pew bows and floral arrangements for the church that we did not have as part of the contract, but it was just one more of the extra special things that were added to our day that did not go unnoticed and are very appreciated. As photographers they were excellent as well. They came to the church for the rehearsal which I though was great since I have been in several weddings and never saw a photographer at the rehearsal. On our wedding day, Bobbie met the girls and Scott met the guys and they literally stayed with us from before the ceremony until the reception was over. This is also something I had never seen before at a wedding since more photographers are gone after all the important bridal stuff is over. We did not have a set plan on where to take our pictures so we headed to downtown Cleveland which can be a pretty challenging to get around on a Saturday. Scott & Bobbie just went with the flow and were able to keep up with us as we drove from place to place with no problems and they did it graciously and professionally. When the reception was over, they helped clean and organize everything, even the stuff they did not have to help with. I could go on and on about what a pleasure it was to have them for our special day, but it could take several more pages:-) I would most definitely recommend them without hesitation!!!

Tiffany and her other shooter were great! They worked great as a team and captured so many good pictures! They were very professional and worked so well with everyone. Very easy to plan meetings and meet with before the wedding even though we were not very close in proximity. Overall great experience and would recommend them for my next event that i needed a photographer for!

I hired Mr. Harris for my brothers wedding. He was very professional and kind. The bridal party was pretty wild but Mr. Harris was able to keep everyone on schedule. Initially he seemed very quiet but he truly has the gift to deal with a variety of people. He was fun but very professional.we had a great time and the photos were beautiful. he will be my wedding photographer in the fall.

Heather has taken the pictures for my little one since he was a newborn and she will continue to be the photographer for him and our family. She always comes up with creative shots. Heather is great working with kids and knows how to get the shots when they don't want to sit still or may be a little unhappy. Heather was great at encouraging me to be photographed with my little one even though I hesitated with confidence after the birth and I will get to cherish these photographs forever. I hope that others will have the opportunity to work with her and treasure the memories she creates.

Tony and Angie captured every moment and then some! Hiring them to be our wedding photographers was one of our best decisions! They drove all the way up to Wisconsin, they stayed on schedule, they were always smiling, they didn't miss a beat and their photographs are stunning! My wife and I have don't just have a photo book of our special day...but we also have multiple canvas prints around the house! We love our photos and the experience of working with Buckeye Photo will never be forgotten!

Harry's​ photography is absolutely beautiful. Not only does he provide a sense of direction, but he is literally open to just about any idea you throw his way. Nothing is awkward by any means: he's easy to be comfortable around and get the very best out of you, and therefore get the best out of your shots.

I used Sumi Patel Photography for some amazing college graduation photos. The photographer showed up right on time and spent the next two hours with my family walking between locations on my college campus and helping us take a vast variety of photos. She was very responsive to what we wanted in our photos and helped us pose. The final product was well edited and looked very nice. Would recommend!
