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

'Brilliant' is the only word to describe Nina's work. Thank you so much Nina for capturing Misha's first b'day bash. You just not only captured the beautiful photos but memories as well - and we will cherish that our whole life. It’s difficult to photo-shoot 1 yr old but the way you arranged, was fantastic. You captured all special moments that matter a lot and are absolutely amazing. I re-live the whole session when I see the photos. You are an incredible photographer and (most important) very humble and nice person. With that said, you also put us in a problem now - its getting difficult to pick favorites/best :). Thank you again for doing such a wonderful job.

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.

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.

Phil was absolutely amazing to work with. He was in constant communication with me about our needs. He arrived early on the site (at his own suggestion) to check it out and was very nice and attentive when I met him. His photos came out absolutely beautiful and I was in awe that he was able to capture the exact essence of the event perfectly (in this case my son's BarMitavah which is difficult to do with kids running around everywhere). I was so happy (and amazed) how he made certain to photograph every guest and there is nice variety- some of the pictures are quite artistic and some are very nice portraits- a perfect mix. His rates are super reasonable and he generously (and quickly) gave us access to all of the photos taken with no marks on them for us to keep at no extra charge and will print out those we want. If you want a fantastic photographer book him now!! I will post photos later.

We loved William. We hired him on relatively short notice and he was very flexible and easy to work with. His prices are incredible - both for New York and for the quality of work he offers. He shoots with Canon L-series lenses, which are (arguably) the best lenses you can buy, and he also brought along backup equipment - the mark of a true professional. He is also a member of the Wedding Photojournalist Association, which is an important accreditation to look for. We had an incredibly difficult time finding a photographer whose final product was high quality and not just cheesy, posed wedding photos with weird editing. Neither of us particularly enjoy having photos of us taken, but he made us feel at ease and everything seemed very natural. In the ceremony (which was tiny - only 12 people) we didn't even notice him. We haven't yet received all of the final photos (which should be around 700 photos in total), but by the next day he had almost 50 photos already finished for us to view online. We were not extremely organized coming in and that's something we should have better prepared for as the onus was on us to come up with locations for photos as well as different family groupings/wedding party, etc. That is completely fair and to be expected of a photojournalist-style photographer, just a heads up that while some photographers will make recommendations and suggestions, this is something you would need to take care of. Overall, we really just can't say enough good things.

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.

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!

Thank you, John! We booked John just a few weeks before my son's Bar Mitzvah to do a portrait/family shoot at the synagogue. John showed up on time, worked well with the family, and in addition to the standard shots we listed, took a few "in the moment" shots. Those are some of my favorites!

Most of the photos I've had done by Mike are live action or in motion situations. He has an amazing way of catching the most perfect shot every time. The final result is always a clear beautiful picture with expert lighting, background and cropping. High quality work by a great photographer!
