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!

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.

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

I've worked with a lot of photographers for various projects, professional and personal, and I've got to say that Phil is the best I've worked with. He has an easy and effortless approach to his work, which puts his clients at ease and produces the most beautiful natural shots (as opposed to awkward and overly staged). We took family shots on the beach with our newborn--no easy feat--and EVERY single picture Phil sent us was a winner. We're hoping to work with him again when our larger family returns to the beach next summer. Thank you, Phil!

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.

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.

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.

Elizabeth is one of the most naturally talented photographers I've ever had the pleasure of working with. Her visual intuition and compositional mastery lead to her capturing strictly unique moments. Her work shows proficiency and an understanding of technical photography. She consistent;y identifies thematic and narrative elements in her portraits, which leads to a greater resolution of her subject as a whole. I cannot recommend a better professional photographer.

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!

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!

James Kern Photography was a pleasure to work with. He showed up on time and ready to go. He asked very good questions so as to get a pulse for what the expectations were for the event. His set up was very professional and added more of a certain elegance to our event. After the event, Mr. Kern wasted no time at all in getting the photos to me. I fully recommend this service to anyone who is looking for a photographer who is reasonable on price and top notch in skills and equipment.

I hired Brian to do photos for a guitar lessons website I am in the process if building. I really appreciate how Brian took the time to research what good photographs of guitars and guitarists look like. He was very easy to work with, very receptive to ideas, and most of all the pictures came out great! I highly recommend Brian for any professional photography you may need.

Kelley's work underrated. When looking for a photographer for our wedding it was hard to find value without sacrificing quality until we found Capturing Autumn Leaves Photography because we were on a budget. Kelley caught every single shot was asked for, made it her job to know every angle of our venue, and got photos when I didn't even know they were happening. She knew my entire wedding party's names, accommodated requests within reason, and her turn around time was the fastest quoted. We will certainly be using this company again for future events as we were overly satisfied with her work. My husband and I did not know her prior to our event when we hired her. 5 plus stars. Thank you for making our day magical!
