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

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.

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 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!

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.

Overall satisfied with my completed project! Photographer had current and advanced equipment necessary for high quality photos. Photographer was very attentive to my vision, and complimented my ideas with his editing talent and shooting expertise. I felt very comfortable and had a blast during the shoot. Reasonable pricing, and great results! I definitely will use Glen Abolu Photography in the near future.

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!

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!

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!

Chris is wonderful to work with! We found Chris for our baby's newborn photos. Being new parents we failed to properly ready the little one for the shoot. Still, Chris was completely patient and understanding while I had to take a half hour out of the session to feed the baby. We used Chris again for Father's Day photos and plan to use him for future milestones/bdays. His photos always look incredible, and he makes sure you are satisfied with them before the session ends. Photos are always edited and received very quickly. When time permits Chris may even send them same day. I highly recommend him!

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!

There should be a higher ranking system for thumbtack because Manny and Bianca deserve more than just five little stars. The only reason our wedding was a success at all was because they weren’t only our photographers, but they were our cheerleaders, they were the coordinators, and they were our nerdy companions! I had a Legend of Zelda themed wedding and the fact that they were excited about it, and dressed for it lol, made it that much better. It definitely was not just a job for them, this is their passion, and you could tell that about them. They communicated, they told me when to walk, they coordinated, and they acted like a couple of bosses with the venue when the venue managers weren’t doing what they were supposed to be doing. If you pass up an opportunity to have Manny and Bianca at your wedding, you will regret it because you will never find anybody who cares as much as they do. I will be calling them for ALL my photo opportunities. Thank you both so much! - Love Sharon and Tim
