Michael got me feeling my very best during the shoot, he experimented with many poses, several locations, and varied the lighting. I LOVE the images he captured! He captured authentic images of me at my best! I had plenty of wonderful images to choose from; and I am delighted with the final images. I highly recommend Michael for portrait photography!!!

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.

Abbe was fantastic ! She made my husband and I feel at ease and laugh throughout our shoot. Despite less than desirable scorching weather, she took time to fix our hair, pat us down and worked her camera magic. I'm extremely meticulous and picky and can easily fixate on any one thing and she surpassed even my seemingly insurmountable expectations. The pictures turned out great! I cannot say enough good things about Abbe. I'll definitely be calling her once our child is born. I wouldn't want anyone else taking our family portraits and pictures. Thank you, Abbe!

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

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.

Bradd responded promptly with a very affordable quote to have my professional portrait taken and was great about setting up a convenient time very soon thereafter. He had a nice studio space with a white backdrop that was required for the shoot, and he spent a lot of time with me and took a ton of shots, with plenty of adjustments for lighting, poses, etc. I felt like he was concerned with getting everything right, and it was a personalized experience. When I got the photos, I asked him to make some minor color adjustments and he got back to be prompty. Overall a great experience.

Matt was able to schedule me last minute when my first photographer bailed. Steve Buscemi is more photogenic than me, but the headshots Matt took look great. Plus, he made the experience of taking pictures enjoyable. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer.

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.

Jaysn was very professional, quick to respond but most of all he is a super nice guy, easy going and patient. My three young kids loved him and his lovely assistant. It was wonderful having another person to help with the kids. He picked a great location and understood my vision of what I wanted for my family portraits. I'm so happy with my discussion.

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.

Verified review

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!

Donte shot a family photo shoot for my family and I. The outtakes were incredible and he was highly creative in his usage of the indoor/outdoor space. I would highly recommend Donte as your photographer for any shoot. In addition, he makes you feel extremely comfortable and he is very professional.
