Ray was nothing short of AWESOME! From the day we hired him as our photographer to now, he was been very easy to contact. I don't think I ever waited longer than a couple hours for a response. A few hours before our engagement shoot, I decided to add a location, and Ray was accommodating (and even told us about a great lake to shoot at-- great photos!). Some photographers would have said "sorry", but Ray was excited with the new idea. Fast forward to the wedding day.... it rained!!! (A bride's worst nightmare) However, Ray and the second photographer, Laurie, made the BEST of the space, and the photos turned out stunning! When there was a break in the rain, they took the opportunity to go outside with us. We even have some great photos with a simple black umbrella. I literally have hundreds (a couple thousand, really) photos from the entire day... All the special moments were captured. We even had access to our entire photo collection about a week and a half after the wedding date. I recommend Ray to shoot other weddings! (I wanted add some photos straight from the wedding photo gallery, but I cannot figure out how to make them smaller than 10MB!)

John Williams of HD Perfect is a fantastic photographer. He is very professional and creative and takes the time to make sure to get the best photos. Whether you need photos for personal or business John can take of you! I needed some professional head shots for my business and for internet marketing. Not only was he great to work with, but he really knows the technical aspects of photography. Having a photography background myself, I’m very selective in who I choose to take photos. I didn’t like being the subject but he was very patient with me and the many outfit changes I needed. He helped to make me feel very comfortable and it was fun. Before we got started John took the time to take some test shots to make sure I got the look I was going for. All the photos were amazing! Also, John was available and quick to reply to any emails or questions before the photo session. I highly recommend choosing John for your photography needs. I will definitely be calling him again for other events, professional or personal photo needs. Thanks John! Melissa

We have used Nashville Dispatch Photo to take photos for us in the Nashville area. These photos need to be accurate, and we rely on our photographers to take photos and measurements according to very specific guidelines we provide. John uploaded the photos we needed to help our project run on time. John's services are affordable, and that is one of the reasons why we have used him more than once.

I absolutely loved working with Autumn!!! She is very professional, fun and creative with her work. I was looking for someone that would be patient and able to bring out the natural beauty in my 3 month old baby. Autumn pulled this off with a breeze!!! My baby loved her and so did we. She was able to capture so many awesome shots. Look no further... Autumn is definitely your photographer!! She is very reasonable for the quality.

I hired Autumn for my first ever boudoir photo shoot and it was AMAZING. Understandably it was a little awkward, but she made it as painless and possible and helped coach how to move and what to do. The pictures came out fantastic! If I ever need any other professional photographer again she will be my first call!

I'm from California and was heading out to Nashville for vacation + to propose to my girlfriend (now fiancé). After a ton of hours researching and looking for the perfect photographer, I'm so happy I came across Michael. When I reached out, he was very quick to respond, very professional, reasonable pricing, super nice guy in person and on time at the set destination. Since Michael and I didn't officially meet until after the proposal, I actually snapped a pic of my fiancé and I that day so he knew what we were wearing and who to look out for. He was so good at capturing our special day. He caught the proposal just perfectly and then we snapped a bunch of pics afterwards. Did I mention he's quick? He had all of our pictures up on his website within a couple hours (end of day) and told us we could choose any/all photos to be edited. Given the extensive research that I did, that's very uncommon. Most photographers allow you to choose maybe 6 photos. Anyways, we chose a bunch of pics and he had them all edited within the same day! Such an exciting experience and hands down I suggest having Michael help capture every little detail on camera!

Michael was professional and creative. He really took time to take amazing shots and instead of taking hundreds of shots to get a couple of good ones he was patient and detailed to really capture those moments and pictures that are so lovely. We loved working with him so much and the end results that we want him to be at our wedding! He was so great!!

This was an awesome experience. Michael came to my location, after agreeing to the job on short notice. He was professional and well equipped. He even researched my particular needs the night before. The preliminary pictures were great. This is the photographer you want.

Rob Lindsay is an extraordinary photographer. I hired him recently to take a head shot I needed for business. Because of his long experience in the film industry, Rob thoroughly understands the technical aspects of a good shot, from composition, interesting lighting, to creative depth of field choices. But what really sets him apart from most photographers is his directorial excellence. He is able to make a subject relax and reveal their inner self. This is actually a very difficult task but seemingly effortless for Rob. If you want the best photographer in Nashville, he's the man to call.

Cathy W.

Rob is an extremely talented professional photographer. He does his homework to determine exactly what a client needs. His warm and witty personality makes the photo subject feel comfortable and the end result is spectacular. I would definitely recommend Rob for any photography needs whether it is for a business headshot, a family portrait or artistic endeavors.

Rob is a very gifted photographer. I am a huge fan of his floral pictures and I am fortunate enough to have a couple of large ones. He has also taken amazing pictures of my show dogs, and is always there with his camera when I come home with a new puppy! Rob also took great pictures of my Air BnB suite.

Ashlyn is an amazing photographer. Not only were her photos exactly what I was looking for, she was super helpful and seemed to be everywhere the day of the wedding. For example, after we were done with family photos, we went around to visit with friends and family. Whenever someone jumped in for a random group shot, Ashlyn and her assistant magically appeared to get us a professional shot as well! Couldn't be happier!

Ashlyn did a great job with our wedding photos. She was great to work with too. I thought yes that it took awhile to get our pictures but from what i have heard from others, we got our pictures back real quick. I definitely believe she was well worth the price and the pictures were beautiful.

Precious moments are only as memorable as the art of an articulated photographer We tied the knot on April 12, 2014 in Queens N.Y. Chris Williams was our dedicated photographer. Being new to the state of New York and America, it was challenging finding a professional photographer who could magnificently capture our most memorable moments. Moments we cared to have forever, and share with friends and loved ones who were not privileged to attend our wedding ceremony. Newly wed, my adrenaline became overactive as I approached the moment. We enquired among persons for the best photographer. We were given fabulous captured images from two such individuals to choose from. Our calculated choice we mumbled would be on the foundation of the photographers’ presentation. Of course having spoken to Christopher Williams affectionately known as "Chris" we were stuck. Chris walked us through the various packages he offered and assisted us in selecting that which would capture those desired moments and best-fit for our pockets. Of course this man was all the way in Nashville Tennessee, questions began to flood our brain adding to the already tight tension. Will it be safe to send our money, will he show-up and if so will he be on-time, will it be a good job? As we communicated daily, Chris professionalism gradually erased those fear. I began to feel comfortable as he walked us through the contractual arrangement and expectations. The day finally came, amazingly Chris showed up even before i was dressed. He and his crew were professionally poised adding uniquely to the wedding theme. They exercised humility and patience while the party was being dressed. There were uncontrolled environmental itches that swallowed a bulk of our time, but Chris maneuvered unnoticeable. Each instructed poise were uniquely articulated as he captured moments of all the individuals in the bridal party. As the groom and groomsmen were being scampered to the church Chris rushed over to our place to capture the bride and bridesmaids moment. It was time for Chris to engage in the most memorable moments of the event that of the bride's. As flashing lights rolled across the room they made their appearance in my bedroom. While he articulated the poses he removed undesired objects to ensure the surrounding was one that would enhance the background and beauty of the images. Chris and his crew captured every moment of our wedding, the dress, the limo, the isle walk, one of the most memorable moment was when my mother walk me down the aisle and handed me over. From each captured image one could read the thoughts of the individuals in the captured moments; the trading of kisses, the trading of rings, the trading of vows, the sand ceremony. Each family felt attached to the event as he captured the families’ moments. As the shades of night hovered the church we started to regret not having the pleasure of outdoor decor. In split seconds Chris gathered and organized the bridal party and tactically created gorgeous moments for us in the church hall. I must admit, Chris truly utilized our surroundings into awesome images. We were awed at the finished product. The captured moments to the halls are magnificent; occasionally Chris sneaked us away to catch intimate moments and towed us back without being noticed. The quality of service we received was superb, the quality of the images are magnificent. Having shown them to our Facebook friends and family the responses are as follows: beautiful! Awesome! Wow! Gorgeous! Wonderful! Beautiful surrounding! Lovely images! Articulated photographer! and the likes and comment list went on. Chris has worked assiduously to have us seeing the images, he went beyond the contractual arrangements to ensure we were totally satisfied. His timing was right from start to finish. He optimized his dedicated time slot and created pleasant memories. Chris we enjoyed and deeply appreciate every moment a well done job. And by the way we just received our well-articulated beautiful album and video. It “MAD” we absolutely love them, Thanks for your level of professionalism we look forward to have you next year and the years to come. Dianne and Noel Duansingh

It was a pleasure to have Chris as our wedding photographer! His work is extremely professional. He captured every aspect of the ceremony from the wedding party getting ready (men and women), to the reception. He even had separate pictures of our guests for them to view/purchase as keepsakes. Each shot/ picture in our album is magnificent. I have recommended him to several of my friends and each has had nothing but great reviews for Chris and his work. I highly recommend Chris as your photographer for your special day.

Christopher is a very nice man with a professional and congenial attitude. My fiancée and I eloped in Nashville at the courthouse and because it wasn't planned too far in advance we were looking for photographers last minute. Christopher reached out to us and based on our phone call I knew he would be a good fit. He showed up on time and he made us laugh as we were getting ready. He had good ideas for getting us the wedding shots we wanted and his turnaround time and fee were outstanding. I highly recommend him.

Matt was the ideal photographer from start to finish! He made the day feel care free and easy, when it would typically be stressful and nerve wracking. Matt will make you comfortable in your own skin, and will make your special event that much more special. If I ever need a photographer again, I'd never call anyone before Matt. Can't say enough how great he is at his craft :)

I've been working with Jeremy Harris for a couple years now, we at AMDA Conservatory and College could not be happier with his professionalism, punctuality and high quality photography. Jeremy has been shooting extensive classroom, event and performance photography for me, and I've always felt very lucky to have a photographer that the teachers, administration and kids all enjoy being around. I've used his top notch photography in a lot of publicity materials and have always been happy with the outcome. I would recommend Jeremy Harris for portraits and events, and he's also an amazing fine art photographer.

We worked with Kevin for drone footage for our wedding in Indianapolis. Prior to our wedding day he made sure to communicate all details leading up to the day to double check times, locations, etc. Because we were working with so many people that day, it put me at ease knowing he knew the timeline and had a back up plan if need be. The weather wasn't great that particular day but the photos and video footage were unreal. They showed great views of the city, the church, the reception venue, and the wedding party. My husband and I are so glad we decided to use Blackbird Aerial.
