Verified review

Ron Alvey is the best value for your dollar on his photography and videography services. Don't bother looking anywhere else. You won't find a better eye then Ron's. Ron's background in photojournalism came in hand as he snapped images that truly captured the emotion and mood of the day. However, Ron's is equally strong at posed photography. The guys hate getting their photos taken and he made them look like they were all models in a magazine. The ladies had to shoot inside an old hall when it started to rain, and he made that place look like a beautiful parlor. We also had a fidgety flower girl and ring bearer, but he snapped at just the right time to capture their excitement and energy even during the group shots. I can't decide if I liked the posed shots better or the candids, because they are all so perfect! Ron showed me the photos on his camera as he was taking them, which I loved! Ron brought with him his professional equipment and lighting, which was great considering we had some rain and our church was dark. He climbed up on a bench and a bridge rail to give us beautiful photos in Eden Park. I was most impressed that Ron sent me a link of all the raw photos the day after our wedding. I have never heard of a photographer being able to do that so quickly! I also appreciated that Ron drove in a snow storm to meet me for the first time because I live out-of-town and wouldn't have another opportunity to see him. He is fully dedicated to his clients. I was blown away with his work. You will love him, too!

Jill was very professional and very patient. The photo shoot that I wanted, was not your traditional shoot. There were several obstacles that had to be over come. I was wondering if it would ever happen. Finally, everything fell into place. The photo shoot I requested turned out perfect. Jill is a great photographer, with great ideas. I am very glad I was able to get together with Jill for this project. I highly recommend her.

Jill Matthws was beyond amazing at our wedding! We didn't have much money for a videographer, and she made a package that was within our budget, and totally dedicated herself. Everyone loved her! She captures the best, memorable moments! Thank you Jill, as I told you that night, I will definitely recommend you to any and everyone who needs a photographer/videographer!

The wedding pictures were one of the most important aspects of the wedding to me...other than "the dress" and sure, the groom. Because of the importance of pictures for me as a memory that I could view over and over again to relive the day, I was willing to spend a little money on it than other aspects of the wedding. However, I believe that Sarah's prices are more than reasonable, plus, there is a lot that the customer gets in her packages. First of all, TWO photographers, an engagement sessions, plus all the time that she spends with you photographing your big day. Also, she is friendly and calm...which is a big plus if you are a jittery bride (I was) and have an outspoken, crazy family (me again). She was also helpful in helping me locate a make up artist and locations for shots prior to the ceremony. So my advice to anyone seeking a photographer, check out Sarah's packages and gallery. She is so fun to work with and her pictures are beautiful! Jessica K.

Sarah is so friendly and easy to work with. She spends time listening to what you want and makes sure the pictures are in the style you want. She got some great pictures at both our wedding and later of our son (who wasn't in a very good mood, but she captured the essence of him perfectly). Apart from great photos, an added bonus is that Sarah gives you a CD with all the pictures (whereas some photographers will make you buy prints from them and do not give you all the originals). Sarah kept in touch with me about when the photos would be ready and got them to me in good time. I highly recommend her.

Taryn S.

Verified review

Sarah did an excellent job making me comfortable for my photography session in my own home! She had a lot of great ideas and helped make me feel confident! I would highly recommend her in the future. The only wish for - would be that I know some photographers bring props with them to help change the background and make things look more studio like vs the natural at home environment - either worked for the photos I was going for but having a small home I should have considered alternative background options myself :-) Sarah made the best of it and I loved my pictures!

Mark is a truly fun person and professional photographer. We hired him at our wedding for wedding & engagement photography, videography, and a photobooth! He is extremely flexible and really wants to please the couple! He asked for my Pinterest board and took all of the photos that I was dying to have!!! Our engagement photos were taken & returned to us edited in a matter of hours-- and they are absolutely perfect!!! He asks for your input and doesn't force any photos you do not want. He is ready to go and gets to know you through questionnaires and conversions prior to meeting. Without him, my groom and I would not have thought of so many wonderful poses! The photobooth was the biggest hit! So many props, pictures for everyone, and they even made us a scrapbook of all of the photobooth pictures with guest comments! I LOVED Mark's services and highly recommend to everyone! We will definitely use him again in the future!!

I went to Louise Erdeljohn Photography in hopes of getting a new professional headshot to use in my career search. Louise made me feel incredibly comfortable and confident in front of the camera. Louise listens to what is important to you in a photograph and captures it. She has an innate ability to capture your true spirit on camera. She takes fantastic photographs and you receive the photos back in a timely fashion! I would highly recommend Louise.

Christina Brown photographed our family of eight. We were on a walking trail & it took approximately one hour. It seemed to go quicker because she made it fun for everyone!! Christina has a great eye for photography, catching all the right poses, the correct lighting, etc. Her ideas for backgrounds & colors are excellent. She was prompt & didn't make us feel rushed at all! She's very professional & yet a lot of fun! The quality of work CKB does is second to none!! I don't think our session could have been any better. Christina went above & beyond what most photographers might do. She was on the ground, in front of us, behind us, etc. We will definitely use her again & we highly recommend her to others!

My Fiance and I had our pictures done by Christina at CKB and we were worried due to the fact that we wanted "action" pictures of us riding on the motorcycle. Christina did an amazing job and the pictures came out better than we have seen in magazines. After that wonderful experience we decided to have her take pictures of our daughters. She made them feel so comfortable and took plenty of time making sure everything was perfect. She even got some awesome pictures of them doing back hand springs and cart wheels. I will never use another photographer except CKB!

I am so glad I choose CKB Photography to photograph my wedding! Christina did such an amazing job! She captured some really unique and artistic photos. She made everyone feel comfortable and did such a great job with all the little kids! She also made sure I got all the photo ideas I had requested! I couldn't be happier with the way they all turned out! I now use CKB Photography for all my family pictures! Christina is an amazing photographer and I would highly recommend CKB Photography!!

Dawn is awesome! She is great to work with and went above and beyond. She was able to take my maternity photos on very short notice due to me having to deliver early - and came out on a Sunday morning, Mother's Day, no less, to help me capture a magical time in my life. My daughter's newborn photos came out BEAUTIFULLY. Not only is she friendly and professional, but the finished product is truly exceptional. I have found my family photographer and highly recommend her!

Dawn is an excellent photographer and passionate about photographing Life's precious moments! Ours was celebrating our parents' 60th wedding anniversary.

E Fotography LLC did a professional job at our 30th wedding anniversary celebration. Photographer was on time, took a large number and variety of pictures, and was friendly and courteous to our guests. The pictures were clear and well framed with all guests being photographed at least once. We purchased a CD and DVD with music of our choice which arrived timely in a nice case. I would change two things: a picture of our home without a vehicle in front and pictures of the hosts placed before others on the DVD. Overall we would hire E Fotography LLC again and would recommend this company to others.

Betsy was awesome! She helped us picked the locations based on our description of what we wanted--we ended up at OTR, Washington Park, and Eden Park. Her calm demeanor was a perfect match for my daughter, who was having her senior pictures taken. When we saw that things were busier than usual at Washington Park, we just went with the flow--it didn't fluster Betsy at all. We just enjoyed the music playing in the background (a bluegrass concert) and the sounds of the kickball games being played. She found great spots with neat architecture for my daughter's shots. She also picked some unexpected shots that turned out really cool. When we headed to Eden Park, we ended up with some of THE most beautiful pictures I've ever seen. All of our family and friends can't believe them! My baby girl is all grown up and Betsy captured her beauty so well. I'm so pleased with our choice of Betsy--we had several photographers respond to us on Thumbtack, and we went with our gut and chose Betsy. I'm so glad we did!!

First of all, the responsiveness of this company surpasses any other company that I've worked with before. When planning a wedding, you need to hire a lot of different people for different aspects. Working with Picture This Photography was by far the best experience. Everything went smooth, no complaints. The photographer stayed out of sight and still took such amazing shots of my wedding in June. I really couldn't thank you guys enough.

I love pictures, so when it comes to have a professional photographer I strongly recommend Arnaldo. Not only does he do an amazing job, he is a fascinating and creative person to work with. His photos don’t have stiff poses and forced smiles. He captured the moment so unique for our family by giving us the opportunity of using different types of pictures with various backdrops, plus making you feel fun and relaxed. I don’t know how he managed to capture natural and candid photos as well as the posed ones in a way you did not feel yourself being forced to pose and coming out with authentic shots. When it comes to nature, believe me he does an awesome work. I strongly recommend him, he worth every penny!
