Introduction: Hey there and welcome to Clev Productions. My name is Dante, I own and operate this company and have built a strong clientele and trust of my work. I am a personable, calm spirit that enjoys capturing any and all moments. My specialty is weddings and events but I am very versatile. I’ve grown to enjoy private portrait shoots ranging from maternity to to engagements and in the moment proposals. My mission is not only to provide a super quality product, but more so provide a comfortable experience behind the lens. Posing and taking photos can be weird and not everyone is used to the process. I'm here to relieve all that stress and make it a fun and awesome experience. Ask me any questions and I promise one thing, you won’t ever regret hiring me. Check out my reviews and website as well. Can’t wait to meet!

First off, Dante is the man. We’ve all been to weddings or events where the photographers might have been talented but lack the personality or charisma to deal with people. He is the total opposite! My proposal plan came together all at once and turned into something I couldn’t have even imagined, when our favorite ice cream shop agreed to open just for me and my now fiancée. I knew some iPhone pics wouldn’t do it justice so I was tasked with finding a photographer very last minute. Clev Productions was one of the first to respond and made sure to follow up with me until we had finalized the plans. Communication was a breeze, and I felt a sense of trust right away that Dante would be there to capture this once in a lifetime moment. Day of he was sure to touch base and keep me updated on his ETA. He took my very slight amount of direction and didn’t intrude on our moment at all, but made sure to capture the intimate moment. He was then the first person to congratulate us after the knee drop moment and his excitement was absolutely genuine. He let us do our thing while at the same time giving us some heads up as to what he was shooting. After our initial celebration he had us do some poses but nothing that made it feel like a rigid photo shoot, it was all in the spirit of candid proposal shots, and definitely gave us good value for his time and solid set of photos we could use for save the dates if we don’t end up doing an engagement shoot. We had great conversation with him, and as he got married in the past few years he was super relatable and insightful. The album really captured the spirit of the proposal and we couldn’t be happier with all the photos. He was present in our moment but still kept it about us. He enhanced an already amazing experience.

If I could choose all 5 (work quality, professionalism, responsiveness, value and punctuality) I would. The day of my wedding, less than 3 hours before it was supposed to start , my photographer had gotten sick and had to cancel. I searched last minute photographers on google and Clev Photography Productions popped up. I wasn’t sure if I’d get any responses since it was a holiday as well but WITHIN MINUTES of sending a request they replied. They asked what my vision was and I wasn’t quite sure but they reassured me they would do a wonderful job AND THEY DID! They did beyond wonderful! And their pricing was amazing, especially for such a short notice and for a wedding! I was expecting to pay an arm and a leg not only for the time crunch but also quotes I’ve seen for other brides photography from other companies. But CLEV Photography Productions offered an amazing price! They came early, were very professional but were also fun and personable, , and made myself and the guests I feel like we already knew them. They were great the communicating with me and made sure any questions I had were answered. I received the photos very quickly and they made sure I liked them. I cannot describe how beyond wonderful of a job they did with the photos though. I cried when I saw them. They REALLY captured the event! The photos made me feel like I was there experiencing it all over again for the first time. They captured all of the emotions and with such clarity. I haven’t watched the video yet, but I KNOW it’s going to be beautiful! I HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND CLEV PHOTOGRAPHY PRODUCTIONS FOR ANY AND ALL YOUR PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEOGRAPHY NEEDS!

Dante was our wedding photographer, along with his second shooter, Dave, and they did the most amazing job, exceeding every single one of my expectations! I’ve never been a fan of lots of photos being taken of me, so the idea of hiring a photographer to do that was already a daunting idea. I cannot emphasize enough how comfortable and relaxed he and Dave made me feel on my wedding day! They were both so confident and relaxed, which truly helped me relax and just embrace the day. I knew they would capture all of the little moments, and they did. They made my husband and I laugh and guided us through some poses, while also letting us just be ourselves! They managed to capture so many beautiful moments but were never intrusive. By the end of the night though, they also felt like friends at our wedding and that was just so unexpectedly fun! If you are looking for photographers who will not only provide the highest quality of photos that will instantly bring you back to the day, because so many small but special moments were captured, but also just genuinely good people who are incredibly skilled, passionate, and fun-loving. . . you’ve found them. Book him immediately and feel at ease knowing you will be in the best hands ☺️

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I price each job according to time, gear, and travel. I work with each of my clients budgets and always find a price that fits. The estimate on Thumbtack is a start and we work on the details and timing and the price increases or sometimes decreases depending on your needs.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    After one or two thumbtack messages I set up a call via text. I like to video chat and develop a rapport, talk through your needs, and provide answers to every question you may have. I also provide a contract and booking website.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have been trained in wedding and event photography as well as a Masters in counseling that brings a great warming presence to my work as a photographer. I also went through studio and portrait training to maintain a better presence for couples and clients who aren't used to posing or in front of a camera.
