Harry provided some business portrait photos. He was very easy to work with, communication was great, and the overall product met my expectations. Very happy and I'll definitely plan on reaching out to Harry for any other projects/needs.

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.

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 recently had my portraits taken by Nursah Wood of The Exact Moments. Nursah was absolutely wonderful to work with! She is warm and engaging & also a complete professional. She's incredibly talented!!! From start to finish (and even after the finish), my experience was amazing. This was my second photo session with her & I'm happy to recommend her. If you are looking for a talented photographer, pick Nursah Wood!!! She will do a great job :-)

My husband and I wanted to get family portraits taken. We contacted Sarah via email to set up a session. Sarah was always quick to respond to my emails and set up a time and a place with us quickly. Our photo session was so much fun. She made it very interactive (especially with our then 13 month old). Before our session was over I got a quick peak at a few of the shots on her camera, which left me excited for more! Within a week I received an email from Sarah with the link to view our pictures. They are AMAZING! I am so impressed! The pictures turned out beautiful and very professional. They are truly a family treasure! I would highly recommend Sarah Bennett Photography, and we will be using her in the near future when our second child is born! Thank you Sarah!

This guy is awesome, class act all the way! He did a wonderful job on my wife and I's wedding photos through everything. From taking the photos he was energetic, fun, and didn't miss a thing. The editing was fantastic and the prints were stellar as well. I even had him take some family portraits for me a couple years after our wedding. Top notch, David is as good as it gets!!

Marshall was fantastic taking pictures at my daughter's wedding. We discussed the different group family pictures that we wanted taken ahead of time. Marshall was very attentive at capturing the important moments, and getting candid shots. He also surprised us with a few black and white Polaroid pictures, which were very cool. Marshall and his assistant were a delight to work with! The photographs that Marshall took of my daughter's wedding ceremony and reception were wonderful and very artistic. He did a fantastic job capturing the newlyweds with family, friends, and the two of them in different settings. There was a series of pictures of the couple in a grassy meadow that were beautiful! I loved how he captured even small details, in the bride's dress and bouquet. I was very happy with the pictures, his professionalism, and how he was able to capture the ceremony and reception without people even realizing they were being photographed. I highly recommend Marshall Evan's Photography. Thank you! Kathleen

Emily is a fun and genuine artist. She took our engagement photos as well as our wedding photos. I couldn't ask for anything more as far as the quality of the photos, the amount of photos taken, how prompt she is, the friendliness, her communication, and her passion for her job. We are so happy that she was part of "our day". My husband and I will be asking Emily to do our maternity photos in just a few short months!

About

I'm a lifestyle photographer specializing in weddings, fun portraits, and senior photos. I also love to document maternity photos, babies, and kids of all ages. I love music, and I also shoot bands during live performances and for CD covers and promotion. My goal is shoot you at your best, on location, where you are most comfortable. My style is fun, fresh, and more photojournalistic than traditional photographers. My prices are fair, and yes, I love to travel!
