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.

I hired Sharper Image Photography a couple of years ago to take a family portrait at our home and was amazed at the quality of their work and professionalism. I was so impressed that I recommend them to my friends whenever possible and even had them take my daughter's senior portrait last fall. I don't usually write about my experiences with companies but I've been so impressed that I just had to express my appreciation to Sharper Image

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!

I honestly cannot say enough good things about Diana! She is professional, kind, and talented. She made sure we all felt comfortable and satisfied during my whole wedding. She went above and beyond her responsibilities as a photographer and thought of every last detail. She and her partner gave me and my bridesmaids hand warmers for our freezing outdoor photo shoot, and helped bring my bridesmaid her flowers when she forgot them walking down the aisle! My wedding was just a few days ago, so I have only seen a sample that Diana has sent me so far, but it is BEAUTIFUL and I absolutely cannot WAIT to see the rest!! I was so worried that I wasn't going to be able to find a photographer within my price range, and I am so very grateful that I found Diana. Every at the wedding talked about how they were so impressed with our photographers. Diana and her partner provided a calm, professional presence the whole time. Diana was there during the rehearsal, while I was getting ready, and the entire reception taking pictures and I really feel like everything about our wedding was captured and will be remembered. Thank you, Diana!! I cannot recommend Diana V enough!

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!

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!

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!

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.

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!

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.

Alma Images photographed our Cincinnati wedding in May 2017. Rachel, Jen, and Zara were everything we could have ever wanted in a wedding photography team. They listened closely to what we were looking for and met with us beforehand to scout out the location and to ask questions about what we wanted. Their planning and communication with each other and with us was impeccable and made for a seamless day of smiles all around. On the day of the event, they were professional and personal. It felt so natural to have them alongside us for the whole day. Their gentleness and joy made us feel comfortable and calm. They were amazingly efficient in helping us stick to our schedule without sacrificing any shots. When we received the photos (which they generously shipped to our new home in Mexico), my husband and I were in awe. The images that the Alma team captured from our wedding day are simply stunning. They have an eye for detail while also capturing the funky, fun spirit of our wedding overall. I would wholeheartedly recommend Alma to anyone looking to capture lifelong memories. For us, they are more than photographers; they are lifelong friends!

About

After my wife Heidi had our youngest son we decided together to take my passion for photography and turn it into a career. Heidi loving photography as well was eager to expand her knowledge of photography so she started taking photography and digital design classes in 2005. Then together as a husband and wife team we started to create very classic and artistic styles of portraits from two unique views. We love capturing the expressions and individual personalities of each one of our clients and making that personal connection with each and every person we photograph.
