Elyse was professional, accommodating and on time for our appointment. We had an outdoor photo shoot for professional head shots. She understood what I was looking for and made sure to get shots using background, lighting and positioning to help me look my best. She had the digital photo files ready for me the next day and they are beautiful!

Kelly is amazing to work with. We brought our 9 month old puppy, and she was patient and worked hard to get the best shots despite how distracted our pup was. You will instantly feel like she's part of your family when you meet her which made us very comfortable during the shoot. Her experience in architecture and portrait photography brings uniqueness to her shots, and for us helped tell the story of our love for Columbus. I highly recommend hiring her for any of your photography needs.

Chloe was phenomenal to work with – from our initial meeting to the wedding day, she was responsive, detail oriented and made sure we got all of the photos we wanted. She has such a warm personality, and she made everyone in the wedding party feel at ease - everyone had such a wonderful time taking photos. After seeing an amazing sneak-peak photo from our wedding, we can’t wait to see the rest of the photos. We couldn’t have asked for a better photographer for our special day. Thank you, Chloe!!

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!

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!

When I needed an eye-catching photo for my book cover, Brenda was the obvious choice. The idea of a cover shot was more than a little intimidating, but I trusted Brenda to guide me—and am so glad I did! The image we eventually chose was perfectly timed. It is definitely me—but it's me at a peak "Why can't I look like this EVery day?!" moment. Brenda caught me at my friendly, confident best (in many shots, actually) and gave us the personal, yet professional cover photo we needed. Brenda is technically and creatively excellent, but it's her intuitive ability to draw out the essence of her subjects that makes her images so captivating. Her easy demeanor and engaging personality make you almost forget there's a camera between you, and as you respond to Brenda, she captures one's ideal self. Not surprisingly, she is always my first recommendation to anyone needing a professional portrait. Her remarkable instincts on timing and in reading emotional stories has put her in high demand as a sports and event photographer as well!

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!

Ron is easy to work with, egar to please, professional, delivers what was promised on time. A surprise party called for candid photos and our portraits, the skill in "post-production" aka "photoshop" enhancement was applied with subtlety and skill. Finally, Ron plays the guitar! In our case he accompanied a sing-along. He is capable of much more. Here is the thing: When you hire "Friendly Creations", you might not need to hire entertainment! In our case, Friendly Creations fit the bill!

As an amateur photographer, I have had the opportunity to be mentored by Jason. Seeing a true professional at work has been a one of a kind experience. Jason has a well-blended style of his own: artsy, sophisticated, and adventurous. Jason's ability to think on the fly and quickly adapt, while maintaining a high level of professionalism is unparalleled.

David did an incredible job documenting our wedding weekend! He was easy to work with, and willing to do anything we asked. He was prompt, kept us on time during our busy day and did a wonderful job photographing the reception without being intrusive. I've been to weddings where you felt uncomfortable on the dance floor because the photographer was in your face, but David was just like another friend snapping beautiful photos all night. He had a great eye for unexpected shots that turned out to be my favorites. I like that he scouted locations in Pittsburgh, even though he isn't from here to make sure we had perfect photo ops. The techniques he uses capture bright and beautiful color that really tells the story of our day. Our wedding album is beautifully laid out and perfectly highlights our perfect day. The prints we ordered were of the highest quality and look better than I expected. I would hire David again and plan to when it comes time for baby and family photos. He is fun, easy going, accomodating yet directive when needed. He takes feedback well, as I'm sure I was not the easiest bride to work with. We had a blast working with David!

I am so thrilled with the professional photographs Jamie took of me recently (taken in the high desert of New Mexico). I have shared them with friends, family, and fellow writers and everyone has raved about how beautiful the photographs are and how Jamie captured my personality so perfectly. Jamie has an intuitive sense of each individual she photographs; I have watched Jamie photograph other women writers, and I admire her ability to make everyone feel comfortable in front of the camera. Jamie is a hugely talented photographer and an amazing human being. I recommend her with great enthusiasm!

Jenna was so amazing. Her fiance was her second and they were both so helpful and really felt like friends by the end of the wedding. They were never pushy and just so easy to work with. We had fun taking pictures with them and the photos are just stunning. Jenna helped us pose and angle ourselves (something we were worried about because we don't really take many pictures). She was more than just a photographer she really went above and beyond. So amazing! Everyone should use her to photograph. I am literally reccomending her to everyone. Just perfect.

I have never personally worked with I.M.S. Photography, but I know Miss Isabella Smith and she is a true delight. I love to see her photographs posted online, as they are timeless and classy, capturing a true light of joy in her subjects. I definitely plan to enlist her in the future for family graduations, weddings, births, portraits, etc. You definitely can't go wrong with her level of skill!

    We were blessed to have Madison as our family photographer! We hadn’t had family portraits done since our son was born, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Madison was not only ready to go when we got there, but she had also scoped out the best spots for our photos. She also brought some things to enhance our photos like a cute blanket and a bubble machine to entertain our 1-year-old. Madison was also understanding and flexible if we needed to take a break, when our son broke down, she didn’t push to get the photos done and was very patient with us. I felt very comfortable with Madison, she was professional, but also easy to get along with. She was also easy to communicate with before and after the photo shoot, and the turn around time for getting our photos back was super quick! I was also impressed with the quality of the photos, they turned out beautifully! I cannot say enough good things about this photographer! We will definitely be using her again, and recommending her out. Thanks Madison :)
