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!)

I had to hire a photographer in Nashville on very short notice - I only had half a day to get a photo shoot set up for the day. Ray Sanduski was a delight to work with. He was very quick in getting me a quote and providing examples of his work. He was attentive to my needs, which, because it was a shoot for a university marketing piece, were somewhat different from an ordinary portrait shoot. Since I was hiring him from another city, he volunteered to communicate directly with the subject, and delivered a plethora of usable photos. He also provided the photos very quickly - which was important because of my deadline. I highly recommend him and would not hesitate to hire him again, should the need arise.

Ray did an outstanding job for me! I hired Ray to take 2 portrait photos to be used in a newsletter and being unable to attend the shoot (I'm on the West Coast), Ray delivered several different options to choose from. Excellent job and highly recommend!

Mark Keenan did an incredible job of taking professional shots for me to help me with my portfolio. He was easy to work with and communicate to, and adjusted very nicely to my specific needs. I was able to schedule our shoot promptly and also received my images in a very timely manner. I had fun and I'm very pleased with the resulting pictures--he's an absolute artist with his camera. I would recommend him to anyone who needs professional photos taken. You won't be disappointed! Just be sure to be clear about what you need and specifically want--that goes for anyone in the industry, though. ;) Both my thumbs are warmly up for Mark.

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!

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.

I asked Tina to shoot some professional portrait style photographs of me in my living space to use on my website and for promotional material. I get nervous when being photographed and tend to make a scrunchy face. Tina coached me through some relaxation techniques, directed my poses and together we chose the best photos. The agreed upon price was right on the mark and she delivered all the digital files within 48 hours. Warm and professional, I will definitely rehire Tina for future work.

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!

Jacqueline G.

Ashlyn was so nice, asked me exactly what I wanted and was really helpful with organizing people and pictures. Her assistant Paula was also very friendly and helpful, still waiting for photos, which should take several weeks, but just the few previews I have seen are beautiful. We can't wait to see the rest! Thank you!!

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.

David and I were introduced through Thumbtack and within the week he was able to meet with me and complete a photo session so I could get some professional head shots done. Within 48 hrs after the photo session he had sent me all of the photos along with the additional touch up photos. He was very professional, extremely nice and prompt!

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 am a singer/songwriter in Nashville and when the time came for me to have an up to date artist photoshoot Heather came highly recommended. I saw her work and knew I would love the product, but had no idea we would have as much fun as we did shooting. Not only was she very thorough in making sure I had every shot I needed in multiple outfits, as well as creative with the surroundings and poses, but she even played music the whole time to set the mood. She took the time to get it right and in no way rushed me or made me feel as if she had other places to be. She was very present. Heather Leroy is as wonderful a person as she is a photographer and I will definitely be working with her more in the future.

Shelley did a wonderful job capturing the special moments as they were happening (action shots). There was no, I'm sorry can we try that one again. She has a wonderful, bright personality that when she is working with you and your children y'all can't help but smile. Also the time frame that she tells you on how long it will take to get your pictures to you, she stands by it, and if for so unexpected reason it might take long she lets you know in advance so your not left in the dark. She stands by her work hands down, so the quality is amazing, but above all the moments she is able to capture for you is precious and priceless!

I was looking for a photographer for some military photos. I ended up hiring Michelle from Volunteer Photography. She did an excellent job with my photos and was one of the most professional photographers I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. She explained everything she did and what the cost was, she even came in below our budget. I highly recommend Volunteer Photography for all your photographic needs.

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.

My company worked with Jeremy on dozens of live events and portrait shoots over the years, with excellent results on all projects. He has a refined eye, especially for commercial photography, with a warm and good-spirited attitude - essential in otherwise stressful environments! He always arrived prepared with lots of great ideas, and always delivered high quality work at competitive rates. Highly recommend.

Jeremy is one of the best photographers I've worked with and I would gladly use him again. From start to finish he made the process easy -- great communication, very responsive, quick turnaround, and the quality of the photos exceeded our already high expectations. A wide variety of angles and shots and fantastic candids that really captured the energy of the event.

Kyle is one of the best amateur photographers I have worked with! I have produced two films with him, and have done multiple shoots with him as well. Not only is he professional and timely, but he also brings a creative eye to all of his work, truly working with YOU to get the best results. Would HIGHLY suggest working with Kyle Vanesko if you want professional quality photos in a fast time frame and without the RIDICULOUS studio prices.

Jeremy was more than a wedding photographer for us. He helped take over when other things went haywire. But beyond that, his work is absolutely amazing. He will take the time to understand what you want and make sure that everyone is enjoying themselves while he is shooting. The finished product was so special and we would absolutely recommend him to all of our friends and family!
