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.

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 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 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.

Bobbie and Scott were absolutely amazing! They did a wonderful job with my twins senior pictures, at a very reasonable price. They were professional and kept the atmosphere cheerful and relaxed. I received high quality photos in a timely manner as well as items I probably would not have gotten with another photographer. At the time, my daughter was beginning to become interested in photography as well. Bobbie and Scott took their own time to talk with her about strategies and tools! Not only are they amazing photographers, they are also amazing people! Will definitely be calling again for any future needs.

outstanding photographer! very easy going and skilled. my engagement photos and wedding photos are so beautiful. Nursah is masterful at capturing those candid moments that make special occasions so special. Compared to other photographers, she was very reasonably priced for all the package included. The wedding album book she made makes it easy to relive your day. It is high quality with high res pictures, and the binding allows the book to lie flat for easy viewing. Also important to note, Nursah is very flexible and easy to work with. Wish I could give more stars.

Dulé is a true professional and I highly recommend him & Apex Media House to anyone in need of exceptional digital content. I hired Apex Media House to take professional headshots for LinkedIn & other networking platforms and I could not be more satisfied with my experience. Dulé was professional, easy to work with, and understood modern trends that produced fantastic digital photographs. Dulé's work will no doubt help me stand out just a little more in a very competitive job market and that could make all the difference. Thank you Dulé and Apex Media House.

I highly recommend Brian as a photographer. Brian did my daughters senior pictures this past weekend and the experience was amazing. Brian was quick to respond to questions, was on time for the appointment, and the price was very fair for the skill/quality of the pictures. Furthermore, Brian has a natural knack for putting people at ease so that the best possible shots can be taken. I have already recommended Brian to a number of family members and friends and I will definitely use him in the future should the need for a photographer arise. Thanks Brian for making this such a great experience!!!

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!

Michelle was very personable, calm and cheerful despite the fact that my 10-month old daughter would not stop crying that whole day. She was creative with great ideas for poses but also very collaborative. She was very happy to take the pics we wanted as well. She didn't know in advance that we would show up with our energetic puppy, either, but she helped us take care of our dog and happily agreed to take some shots with our pet. She made me feel comfortable and she made the experience enjoyable. I would definitely have her take more family portraits in the future, and I would recommend her to friends and family.

Ascension Fotoworx provides a variety of services and excellent quality photos. I was responded to in a very reasonable amount of time. Ryan, the photographer, is professional and captured “natural” beach moments well. I was comfortable during the photo shoot, which is extremely important to me. I have had several photos done by this company and I am very pleased. Ascension Fotoworx has also provided roof inspections for my insurance company as well. The company is highly recommended by me!

Sam was professional but also so personable which made my photos feel and look organic bringing out the authenticity, spontaneity and creativity of the moment. She has a true talent for capturing in a unique way and she truly made the experience so enjoyable. Her confident and warm demeanor brought out my confidence which I believe is so important in creating photos that really bring out the spirit of the moment. A truly amazing photographer!!

I've hired Christian on numerous occasions and could not recommended him enough. I own my own company and regularly subcontract to him when I cannot cover an event. He is extremely professional, always on time or ahead of deadlines, and he has a truly artistic eye- he doesn't just capture the event, he also captures the emotion, mood, and activity in the room. Thumbtack is bogged down with amateur photographers. Christian is the exact opposite- if you receive a quote from him, you should not hesitate to accept it, as I have no doubt in my mind that he will go above and beyond your expectations to create lasting memories for you.

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!

About

I am a portrait photographer interested in making fun, sophisticated, and contemporary images that are unique to each client. My work includes children, family, maternity, glamour, boudoir, and intimate weddings. Your session can be planned for on-location or in a studio setting. Even though we live in a digital world, I truly believe it makes a world of difference to be able to hold a beautiful print or album in your hand. I provide a variety of prints, albums, framed images, canvas gallery wraps, and digital images through my packages. I would be thrilled to hear your ideas for a photo shoot!
