My goal was candid shots that captured the event and for The photographer to be as invisible as possible. Michael provided exactly what I asked. And the quality of the photos is superb.

Abbe was easy to communicate with. She took terrific pictures at our corporate holiday party and was very professional throughout the entire process. Quick delivery of finished photos after the event was also greatly appreciated. Without a question, will use Abbe again for any photography needs.

Working with john was a pleasure he was on time. I wasn't even prepared when he showed up so he helped out as much as he could.He stayed past his time to get pictures of me opening my gifts. He helped throughout the event. He was very nice and professional. I got to view my pictures the very next morning and i loved my pictures. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a great event photographer. I will be using his services at my next event.

Matthew Porter is by far one of the best photographers I've ever worked with, and I've worked with many. He's very professional and always creates stunning works of art. He is truly passionate about what he does and it shows in his work. He has just relocated not that long ago and he is already missed. Matthew is an unbelievable visionary and has an incredibly unique way of brining his visions, and those of others, to life. I would recommend anyone to work with thus amazing photographer.

I can't recommend J&J photography enough! From our first correspondence, John was prompt, polite and professional. The photos for our event were superb, and were turned around and delivered in under 48 hours. I would definitely hire J&J again.

Bergey Photo, rocks! Rey and Veronica are a pleasure to work with and provided a fantastic experience for our holiday party. The photo booth and accessories were fantastic and everyone was impressed by the high quality customized photo strips. In addition to the photo booth, we hired Rey to take photos during our event; he really captured the spirit of the party. Thanks Rey & Veronica!

I could not have asked for a better photographer to work with for my daughter's birthday, during which we asked Elizabeth to capture photographs of the event along with several family shots. She produced a gallery of such amazing photos that captured the essence of each special moment. Elizabeth has a true talent, being able to make her clients feel comfortable and relaxed, with a calm and patient manner, so the whole experience is fun and ultimately produces excellent results. She is so skilled with understanding the right lighting for the best images, and gives great guidance on positioning. I also truly appreciated Elizabeth's dedication to make sure we get the best shots possible. Because the lighting was not optimal during the time of the birthday party, she offered to come back later in the day to get the best family shots possible. This really showed her commitment to her work and generosity with her time! Either way, the photos she took during the birthday and after were all just beautiful. I am so glad we decided to work with Elizabeth to capture these memories. Thank you Elizabeth, would definitely hope to work with you again!

I have to say that my experience with Willam was very disappointing. From the beginning he was hard to get a hold of and was never available for calls or meetings. I understand that we all are busy, but isn't meeting with clients how you maintain your business? I always had to reach out to him to see what the status was with our engagement and wedding pictures. Because William was so busy, he didn't even shoot our pictures. The photographers that we decided to go with through him were beyond amazing! It felt like they actually cared about creating this amazing moment for us. William never called to ask how the session went with the other vendors or if we were satisfied. He was always quick to ask for payment but not quick to provide great service. Again, after receiving my wedding photos there was no follow up to see if I was satisfied or if I had even gotten them. The whole process was sad. I wish I would have gone with the actual photographer that shot our wedding. I would have been willing to pay more for her, she was definitely worth it. She was kind and asked questions that William never even bothered to ask. It was concerning when the photographer mentioned her surprise that communications were lacking from William and she was shocked at the level of service that we were getting. We had to ask for a few sneak peeks from our wedding almost three weeks after the wedding. Our photographer mentions that this what she normally does two to three day after and it is something most photographers do as well. Only after sending William an email asking him about this did he send us anything. While we did get a great price for our photos, I don't believe that means that we should get a lower experience. If we weren't worth his time he shouldn't have taken us on as clients. When a bride is planning her wedding the relationships that she forms with the vendors can really enhance or complicate the experience. This experience in all was just very sad.

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!

Working with Dan was great- he was very responsive to our requests and very accommodating. We just got back the low-res versions of our wedding pictures and we are SO happy with them! He's really incredible at what he does and if we ever need another professional photographer, we'll be calling 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!

I hired John right before my event in Philadelphia. He showed up early, was professional, and had my pictures to me within 24 hours of our event. They were exactly what I needed and he was great and easy to work with! You won't go wrong hiring him!

Joan is a wonderful teacher. You can tell she has a passion for photogrophy and that shows in her teaching. She takes the time to explain your own camer and then takes you out into the field to practice getting shots. I would recommend her to every new photographer like myself. She helped me grasp the concept and I'm able to take good shots after just two lessons!

Kelley was UNBELIEVABLE. Right on time, sweet as could be, super professional in every way. She added so much to my best friends bridal shower yesterday and even sent me a couple preview pics, which look amazing. I can’t wait to see the rest. You won’t be disappointed if you use this business to capture photos at your event.

    Ta'Dacia was amazing! My husband and I agreed that having her as our photographer was one of our best wedding decisions! We are just getting back all of our proofs and they look beautiful, she captured every moment of our wedding perfectly. She was exceptional with our guest and gave great directions, because we needed them. For us getting a photographer of top quality was a priority and we got that in her. Thank you so much!
