I am a fine art photographer, having gallery exhibited and am soon to be published. I came to Paul with pretty much a fully realized concept for what I wanted from the shoot for publicity materials as a writer and performing musician. Paul humbly took my lead and accurately captured my vision. Importantly, it became obvious that his artistic vision and photographic skills exceeded my tasks. His ideas, enthusiasm and well-honed studio skills expanded far beyond my expectations. OK, the man takes a great picture, but he watches, listens and senses emotion, subtlety and intent. I got much more than I expected in a critically important commercial shoot. On top of that, we had a blast! Paul is a consummate pro that goes over and above what you ask of him. I would (and have already) recommend him to professional colleagues.

Sonia was very responsive from first contact to last. She was friendly and professional. Most photographers you are waiting weeks for proofs we had ours in less than 2 weeks. If the need arose I would use her again.

Written by my Fiancée; My boyfriend hired Andrea to take pictures of his proposal, and she did an amazing job! I did not know that she was there until after all the excitement was over and she captured the moment perfectly. He had taken me out to the Bastrop area to a pumpkin patch and he said that Andrea was very accommodating at meeting us out there. After the proposal, she took a bunch of awesome pictures of us around the farm that served as a perfect way to announce our engagement to friends and family. Andrea was great at directing us and getting us to look our best in the photos. Since the proposal shoot we’ve had pictures done somewhere out of town and the other pictures/photographer helped us see how even more amazing Andrea is. I cannot say enough great things about her.

Mindi is an amazing person & photographer! She editted the pictures so great. She recommended great poses for us to do since it was our first time taking pictures. She is very flexible with time and location, btw her location preferences are amazing. Her prices were very reasonable as well and fit my budget. Will definitely call her again if I need my pictures taken again!

Mary was great to work with. 1) She always responded to emails and phone calls quickly. 2) She was flexible with our schedule for the bridal portraits (my daughter lives out of town) and got them back quickly so we could have a print to display at the wedding. She had no problem with the wedding being at our church and the reception at another location. 3) I LOVE her pictures. One thing that impressed me on her web-page was the indoor shots - many photographers have lots of outdoor shots but few indoor ones. The wedding and reception were both inside (it was July!) and she did a great job. She was very discreet and managed to capture the beauty, sacredness, and joy of the day. Somehow she managed to convince my daughter and her husband to step outside for some quick (and wonderful) shots and then continued the magic indoors. 4) Compared to many other photographers, she has very reasonable rates. 5) She truly loves her job and her joy bubbles out to everyone around - it was more like she was an old friend rather than "just" a photographer. I will definitely contact Mary for other occasions!

I hired Art to take business head shots for my Family Medicine residency application. The total time from booking my appointment to receiving the final photos was less than one week. I am very happy with the final product I received, and overall enjoyed working with Art. He kept communication lines open, was flexible with scheduling, and took plenty of photos during the shoot. If I need another photographer in the future, I will definitely look again to Art. For anyone interested in a more detailed version of my experience: I had difficulty finding a photographer who worked with my schedule since I also work business hours. I contacted Art on a Friday afternoon, and he was able to schedule me for that Sunday evening. When I arrived at his studio, he sat down with me and discussed my expectations. He was kind and receptive to my input. I brought several outfits and together we decided on which would look best. This was my very first photoshoot for business head shots, so I was pretty clueless on what to do. Art was patient and provided clear instructions on how to pose or what adjustments to make. My favorite thing was that he allowed me to review the unedited photos before I left, and he made sure I liked several of the photos. Three days later, he sent me a link to review the best of the unedited photos and to select my favorite five. He also included a sample of the editing. There were a few things about the editing style I did not like, so I brought these things up with Art. He listened to my feedback. The next day I received the final edited photos and was very happy with the changes he made. I actually delayed my application submission because I couldn't decide which photo to use - I loved them all! I finally settled on the one uploaded with this review. Art is a great photographer to work with. I highly recommend him and will be telling everyone I know to consider hiring him.

I did not actually have my photos taken by Errich (because a photographer friend was able to do it for less money), but he was very kind and gracious when I canceled and was willing to reduce his price quite a bit as well. I will definitely keep him in mind for next time if my friend is unavailable.

Debbie was fantastic! We booked her for our wedding and we're super pleased with the photos we've received. Her attention to small details really sets her aside from other photographers. We don't need 500 pictures of just the two of us; We want to be able to remember the whole day, and she made that possible. She makes ordering/sharing your photos very easy.

I had Steve do portrait and family photography. The pictures came out fantastic. He was very patient with us. He had great ideas and used his creativity to produce great photos. The fact that he does not post examples of client photos made me a little nervous at first because I couldn’t see examples, however, he let me do a test shoot that eased my concerns. Actually, it is comforting to know that my personal pictures won’t be posted on his site without my approval. I was very pleased with his work and would recommend him to others and I will definitely use him in the future.

Greg is an absolute pleasure to work with, I would highly recommend hiring him for any type of real estate photography. He photographed a (not-so-pretty) medical building for our company and they turned out better than I could imagine. Quick response time and turnaround of photos/edits. We have already hired him for two additional jobs and plan to continue using him in the future.

Words can not express how amazing he is! Kevan Stephen and I were blessed to have you be our photographer! You made me have fun and most importantly comfortable, I didn’t second guest any of your hard work you put in on my wedding day. You were there from the beginning to the end on my day and that was amazing to happen! My family and friends enjoyed your company as well! And I will always have you in mind when I have any other events! Thank you for everything!

We loved working with Droplight Media! They worked with our budget and were able to accommodate our last-minute request. They also provided digital images in a one-day turnaround when other photographers wanted to charge an arm and a leg for digital copies. We used Droplight Media for a special event and got a mix of portraits and beautiful/artistic candids which is exactly what we are looking for. We highly recommended them!

Tanny is an incredible photographer who, in addition to technical ability, is skilled at bringing out the true, uninhibited self of the people she photographs. She's got a great eye, a killer sense of humor and she captures real, beautiful moments. Highly recommend her for print, weddings, film set photography and portraits.
