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!

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!

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!

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.

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!!!

Cory and his wife have been BRILLIANT to work with. Our initial consultation left us feeling excited and confident about choosing them as our wedding photographers. For the package, you can't beat their price! Cory was happy to break the fees into payments for us in any way we wanted and his system was very easy to use. When we did our engagement photos, they brought lots of energy and ideas; ensuring the final product was just what we wanted! I'm really looking forward to having them at our wedding and seeing what amazing photos they catch for us!

I have hired Mr. Balden several times - once for my wedding and a second time for the opening of my small business. My wife and I were delighted by Mr. Balden's creativity in capturing our wedding memories. Rather than just getting photographs of people standing and looking at the camera, we have candid, wonderful pictures with great backgrounds. For our cafe opening, my wife and I again hired Associated Photographers. Again, Mr. Balden's talent with the camera showed through - he captured the atmosphere of the cafe perfectly. Add to the above - Mr. Balden and his wife were professional, friendly, and a pleasure to work with. I hire Associated Photographers - absolutely - for my next event.

Denise did a wonderful job taking outdoor photos for our family! She was very helpful in planning the photo shoot and she chose a beautiful location with perfect evening light. We had three generations in our photos. She brought chairs to accommodate the grandparents and she managed to capture great shots of three young (and not so cooperative) kids! We were all very pleased with the pictures! She is affordable, professional and very responsive. I highly recommend her!

There are not enough nice words to describe this photographer! Jay and his wife did my wedding photography. Not only did they drive from Columbus to Norwalk but they arrived early and stayed late. Jay and his wife were more than just photographers, they were a true help to everything that day. They had a wedding day survival pack filed with everything that a bride and bridesmaids may need (even feminine products). Jay was very patient and attempted every photo that I wanted. He also caught moments on camera that I would have never thought to catch. I could go on and on about this photographer but to sum it up.....He is the best!! Thanks Jay for capturing my day!

Tiera is an amazing photographer whose work can be seen all over social media. She does an awesome job 'capturing the moment' and her editing and overexposure skills really set her apart from other Central Ohio photographers. If you'd like an awesome capture of your event or 'moment' I'd happily recommend Tiera to you.

Heather is truly amazing. She knows how to get on your level and make you feel incredibly comfortable. With her fun props and personality she definitely captures your light. She does a wide range of work from creative, fun shoots embracing texture and shapes to portraits and product work. Her videography is quite impressive as well. After shooting - she edited photos timely and edits photos beautifully! During our photoshoot she ensured I was taken care of and makes you feel right at home. If anyone was looking for a space to work in especially other photographers, her space is very bright and unique. Heather’s studio has so much to offer and located in a convenient area. She’s a must to work with! Thank you again for working with me Heather!

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.
