Michael did an amazing job! He was a ninja, catching pictures when we didn't even see him! He called to confirm time and location a few days ahead and reviewed the schedule. He sent some pictures 2 days after the shoot and they are gorgeous! I can only imagine how well the rest will be. Would definitely recommend him for any event.

I have a business in food industry, but my business is typically focused on South Asian community. I was looking for a professional who can actually click me some great pictures of my products considering my product as a global product, Jim is the person who knows how to click great shots, but he also knows how to lay out the whole picture, he is not just a photographer but he also imagines a great shot in his mind who leads a great end product. I am highly satisfied with his service, quality and images for my business. I am sure he would take your words and give you high end service. If you are looking for a professional who can take great shots for you, then JIM is the guy. I Strongly recommend Jim to everyone.

Cal and his team from Pro Click Photography was absolutely amazing! He was earlier than the time we had contracted with him and really knows his stuff when it comes to photography. He was really professional about everything as well. He moves very quick and efficient, I really enjoyed working with him. My husband and I got married on June 17th and left for our honeymoon that following Tuesday. Upon our return home, there was a package on the counter, I opened it up and a CD with over 2,300 pictures was there from our wedding. We got our wedding pictures disc back less than a week after our wedding. That is unheard of!!! The pictures are just absolutely beautiful! We would recommend Cal and Pro Click photography to anybody in need of a photographer. The Photo-booth we had was really cool and awesome as well! Lots of props for our guest to chose from and they had such a great time with the photo-booth. If I could give Pro click photography more stars, I would. To Cal and your team, thank you for capturing wonderful and beautiful memories on our special day! -Jess and John

Bradd has been the sole contributor for all of the film Boston2Philly photography and promotional material (including the Film Poster). As well as being an incredible talented photographer, Bradd also is very diverse with his experience working with still and moving imagery. A skill that came in handy during some of the larger and more complex sets in the production. Bradd was able to provide much needed critiques and directions to a crew of over 11 film professionals on numerous different occasions. Most importantly, Bradd is a humble Professional even as he becomes the premier source of inspiration to many photographers in the Philadelphia area who acquire his tutelage. All in all...I highly recommend Bradd for any job! - Producer/Writer of Boston2Philly and DistrictC11

We hired Elizabeth for family portraits at the beach with my children and grandchildren. She spent the first 5 -10 minutes of the session with us to understand what we wanted out of the session and she then helped guide us with several excellent suggestions that enhanced the beautiful portraits she delivered to us. I was also amazed on how she handled my grandkids who were trying to get a little wild but, she certainly has a talent with kids and was able to rein them in. I would strongly recommend Elizabeth’s work. We are so happy with the beautiful portraits that capture our family memories.

Vikrant has consistently gone above and beyond his job to satsify me and my family. He demonstrates how excellent his customer service, just as much as his love for taking the photographs. I've been to other photo studios before and notice the lighting looked bad or the photographer had a "get you in and out" attitude. But when I went to Vikrant Studio I've seen him work with customers and demonstrated his expertise in all aspects. If you don't like how the photograph came out he often goes an extra step to help. Vikrant is clearly a “people” person and shows his clients how much he likes working with them.

I hired Julie to photograph my wedding in 2014. Her prices were very competitive and my package included our engagement session. She even drove to State College so my fiancé and I could have a Penn State themed engagement session. On my wedding day, she not only took amazing photos but stayed with me the whole day so I didn't have to worry that all of our special moments wouldn't be captured. I was extremely pleased with the quality of our photos and found that they rivaled the work of other photographers who were far more expensive and offered far fewer personal touches. I would highly recommend her to any future bride!

Erin did a fantastic job on our portrait shoot which included my 2 daughters, 6 and 5, who have little patience for shot after shot. Her patience and creativity to keep the little ones engaged and the shots of their letting off steam, spinning in circles and rolling on the ground capped off a session full of well staged and lit photos.

Delia Renee was a God-sent for our nonprofit launch! She jumped into action at short notice and made our event a priority. The timeliness is unlike any photographer I've ever worked with and the quality of her work is even better! I'm so excited to continue to work with Delia for all of our Diamond Daughter Corp Events.

Amazing Photographer. Photos are top notch. I needed great headshot for my new job and I'm thrilled that I found Jared. He was very laid back and made me feel incredibly comfortable. I haven't been in front of the camera in a formal setting since my  last school picture and was a bit nervous. Those feelings quickly evaporated. His rates are incredibly reasonable and when all was said and done I was left with a variety of great images to choose from. Do not hesitate to hire him.

We could not have dreamt of a better photographer for our wedding this past October! He was great to work with throughout every step of the process: consistent with communication and understanding our preferences prior to the wedding, creative and engaging during the event, and he provided the most touching, innovative package with which to deliver our prints. In addition to great charisma, the photography was exceptional. He really captured the details and candid moments that were important to us. We are so grateful for care and skill applied to make our day truly special!

Our family was looking for a outdoor portrait and we used 2PK for them. We wanted to use the beautiful backdrop of Philadelphia. We discussed our ideas with Paul and he came up with great suggestions and different parts of the city that we hadn't considered. It was wonderful to have a couple different spots downtown and iconic structures and statues too. We were very pleased with the portraits and value for our money. We ended up selecting a lot of pictures because we couldn't decide between them all! Great job and we will use 2PK again!

Maria is an award-winning photographer who worked alongside me, taking pictures for stories I was writing as a journalist. She has an incredible eye for shots that tell a news or feature story, and her portrait work is second to none. She's also taken my professional head shot, and some fun photos for a family project, where she flexed her own creative muscles to help us out! She's very professional, friendly, easy to work with, and supportive of your ideas while offering a photographer's perspective. I highly recommend her!

My photographer cancelled on me two days before my wedding and of course I was devastated. I knew I would never be able to find another photographer, my husband and I had no hope. When we reached out to L3 photography we were surprised how fast he responded to us. From that moment everything was so professional, communication was great, prices we’re better than what we were previously quoted and the pictures were stunning. As a bride I was very anxious to see my pictures and I must say he was very understanding and delivered my pictures in a very reasonable time. I have since referred 3 people and everyone was beyond satisfied. I will never use another photography company. Thank you again! See you guys in June for our maternity shoot!
