Elyse met us at our preferred outdoor location and took very lovely and meaningful pictures that will bring back great memories for years to come. She accommodated our suggestions and was very easy to work with! We highly recommend her for senior picture photography.

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!

Jace is nothing short of amazing! One word-WOW! I had the pleasure of meeting and working with him at an Extreme Steampunk event. He was the last photographer of the 10 hour day. I was tired and ready to call it quits, but I had heard raving reviews about his work and knew I had to meet him and see what he was all about. I was little worried about seeing the photos, BUT I was stunned. Not only did Jace turn the pictures around quickly, he was able to connect with me and capture my personality in a way no one has before. His photos ended up being some of my favorites! Putting a camera in Jace's hands is nothing short of magic. He is professional, creative (not to mention hilarious) and has an amazing connection with who/what he is shooting. I highly recommend Jace and JRD Photography. You won't be disappointed!

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.

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.

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.

Tiffany and her other shooter were great! They worked great as a team and captured so many good pictures! They were very professional and worked so well with everyone. Very easy to plan meetings and meet with before the wedding even though we were not very close in proximity. Overall great experience and would recommend them for my next event that i needed a photographer for!

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.

Doug Retherford is hands down the best photgrapher I've ever hired. He truly cares about the quality of his work and aims to impress his clients. He has a distinct eye for capturing the moment and goes above and beyond the typical poses you would expect from a photographer. His prices are unbelievably reasonable. Stop looking any further if you are in search of a photographer for your event. His photographs will leave you in awe and you will want to refer your friends to use him for their next event.

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!

Tony and Angie captured every moment and then some! Hiring them to be our wedding photographers was one of our best decisions! They drove all the way up to Wisconsin, they stayed on schedule, they were always smiling, they didn't miss a beat and their photographs are stunning! My wife and I have don't just have a photo book of our special day...but we also have multiple canvas prints around the house! We love our photos and the experience of working with Buckeye Photo will never be forgotten!

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'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!
