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.

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.

Lara is one of the Best Photographers in the Business. I had the pleasure of doing a mother/daughter session with Lara, and I cannot rave enough about her ability to capture the true essence of our relationship through her photography. You can tell that she really cares about her work and her craft, and through the entire shoot she put us at such ease. We really did feel like the most important people on the planet, all due in part to Laras ability to connect with us, as I'm sure she does with each and every one of her clients. It was an incredible experience, and the photos are something I will always treasure. Following the photoshoot with my Mom, I immediately hired Lara again to take photos of our home that we were soon to list for sale. We wanted professional photos for our listing, but we also wanted photos personally to capture all the blood sweat and tears we put into making it our unique home. Lara knew exactly what we wanted and needed with minimal direction, and she caught things that we would have passed over. Her attention to detail is immaculate. I attribute Lara's photography to why our home sold so quickly, and I cannot be more thankful for her skills and her inherent eye. If you're still reading this review, you really don't need to search any longer for a photographer. Lara is a class act and you can trust your special moments and memories in her hands with her behind the lens. I can't wait for the next opportunity to hire her.

Anna was great, she is upbeat and a lot of fun to work with. She took a family portrait of me and my three daughters. She was extremely patient with my kids and is very personable. I would highly recommend Anna. I won't hesitate myself using Anna's services again!

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 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.

Undoubtedly, this photographer is amazing. It's as if she read my mind on what I was looking for in the way of setting, action shots, expressions and blending the right mix of personalities into one fantastic family photo! Even with the littlest one and the teenager, the expressions are priceless. If I ever need to expand my family photo wall, I will know who to contact!!

Alex did our Beach Wedding, and the experience was truly Amazing! His attention to detail and being able to capture every aspect was again Amazing! We have worked with a few photographers before but none of them matched Alex and his "Eye" for capturing the perfect moment with every shot! Definitely using him for our Vow Renewal at our 10 Year Anniversary.

One stop shopping was never better! We hired Jim Landers for our annual sales meeting in San Antonio. With 1300 people attending and several events going on that week, he was able to provide all the photographers we needed and even accommodated last minute requests for additional services. His prices are fair and his services/quality are top notch. I highly recommend using Jim and his wonderful staff. Thanks! --The CareFusion team

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.

Ryan did an amazing job photographing our event! 150 people, a very large awards program, dancing, great food and decor... She captured it all so beautifully! My best friend and my husband are both photographers and are my usual go-to's for the many charitable and social functions I put on but they were off duty that night. I was nervous that we wouldn't get the same quality and caring from a hired gun (so to speak). But myself and our group members were all so pleasantly surprised that Ryan got some amazing shots and in the challenging environment of a relatively low light hotel ballroom. Excellent job and highly recommended!

I adored working with Jodi! I hired her for my sister's wedding. She also did my sister's and my engagement photo shoots, as well as my sister's bridal portraits. She has an eye for detail and composition; her photos are stunning and the finished product looks like it belongs in a bridal magazine. She is a great value -- priced well below other photographers whose work does not measure up to hers. I will absolutely hire her for my wedding when we pick a date. In addition to her photography skills, she is professional, sweet, cheerful, and personable. Thank you, Jodi!

Amazing photographer. Toan photographed our wedding in March. I was bummed because it was super rainy that day, but Toan used the rain to his advantage. The colors, especially green trees and grass, turned out beautiful, and we incorporated bright umbrellas into our pics. We had so many fantastic pictures that it was hard to narrow it down to which ones to print. He really does amazing work, without breaking a budget.
