I am extremely satisfied with my portrait photos taken at Monumental Arts by K. Since I hadn't had a professional photo in awhile the process and options were well explained. There was no rush which allowed for a relaxed session. When I asked, great suggestions were given on my accessory choices. Besides taking great photos, providing numerous pose and background options Monumental Arts provided outstanding customer service. They responded immediately to my emails and texts. The online review and purchase process is so easy. BIG THANKS to ace photographer K, who later quickly helped on a rush order.

Rachel is a real pro - if you are looking for beautiful, real, crisp, clear portraits, engagement and wedding photos, family photos - anything - look no further. Rachel instantly made me feel at ease in front of the camera and knew exactly how to guide my fiance and I to capture authentic and natural photos. She is brilliant at using natural light, too. We could not be happier!

Jared is absolutely phenomenal. He's shot me several times, and he's managed to blow me away each and every session. I really can't recommend him enough. For a truly unique experience, book time with him. You'll walk away with magnificent photographs and feel like a total model!

Tina does amazing work! She has conducted major photo shoots with famous models and major movies. Her modeling-photo experience really shines through as Tina has master control of all components of her studio -- all components geared to one goal: making you look the best, fabulous! Tina is a very friendly and welcoming person. She motivates you to bring out your best portrait look. She is the best photographer to have ever taken my portrait in my life. I highly recommend her.

Winstead is a multi-talented artist on many platforms that I've had the pleasure of witnessing. Winstead was the hair/makeup artist on set of my first photoshoot in VA, and more recently, he directed and produced my first video interview! His talents know no boundaries, and he's nothing short of a pleasure to work with. Winstead is a true professionsal.

There really isn't enough time, or just the right words to describe the unbelievable experience we had working with Jamaal McKenzie. So, if you want the Reader's Digest version of this review, here it is: stop everything that you are doing, call him immediately and do whatever you can to book him. But seriously. From the start, Jamaal was constantly and unwaveringly professional, responsive, and helpful. He responded almost immediately to any email or question I had. He made himself available to talk via phone or skype, which was especially important to us because we were planning our wedding from afar. And he provided us with detailed information about the entire process right up front. Beyond all of those things, however, Jamaal demonstrated a real genuine earnestness to do good work for us. Right away, it was clear to me that Jamaal was an artist who truly cares about his work, rather than just someone who photographs weddings to make money. This was really demonstrated by his approach to shooting weddings: he attended our rehearsal, rehearsal dinner, pre-wedding getting ready, the ceremony, and almost the entire reception all for a price that I found to be extremely reasonable. Working with Jamaal the day before and the day of the wedding was also a wonderful experience. He was unobtrusive, but also checked in with me and my husband when appropriate. He was extremely organized and prepared for many different shots and scenarios. And was entirely a calming energy that helped me relax and not worry if the pictures would turn out great. Needless to say, the final products are simply stunning. He captured every single image that we requested, and used his artistry to create images that we couldn't have imagined ourselves, but that will hang on our walls for generations. Other people have said in their reviews of Jamaal that booking him was the single best decision they made in the entire wedding process, and I simply couldn't agree more.

Pri was great. She was easy to communicate with and quickly answered all of my questions as we planned our photo shoot. When the weather that day was terrible, she was able to reschedule so we got pretty weather. On the day of the shoot, she was friendly and professional. I could tell she was used to kids and babies because she made all kinds of goofy sounds to get my son to smile in the pictures. I'm really happy with the beautiful family portraits and will definitely book Pri again in the future.

My experience with Elmo Laing was a powerful trigger of personal memory---from light, to set-up, to processing. By all accounts, he is a meticulous craftsman. Through his eyes and indelible images of my party guests, I am still reliving this momentous occasion ---my 60th birthday celebration. In photograph after photograph, Elmo captured every mood and motion of the affair. He documented the dancing, the band, the striking group portraits, the cake, the room decorum, and of course--ME. His photography has played an important role of constructing memory because the stories leap from their stills. His images are stimulants for remembering---happy lives, families and friends, and what & how we celebrate. I hover over these images! That’s what fantastic photographers do….they show the environment, they show what they saw and they work to compose the best for YOU. That is exactly what Elmo Laing produced for me. Oh, wait a minute, did I mentioned that he is patient, polite, and precise with posing & positioning—a good photographer. Thank you, Elmo for your artistry, storytelling and technical ability.

Verified review

When my husband and I started our adoption journey, we knew we’d need photographs that showed who we are as people and also showcased our silliness as a couple. Hassan Malik somehow pulled my introverted husband out and our photographs not only show how loving my husband is, but also how funny he is - something that is rarely seen by the passerby. I consider our photographs timeless keepsakes already. I’ll definitely be looking for family sessions after we’re placed!

I recently worked with Nandor and was extremely impressed and pleased with his quality of work. I advised him of the type of photos that I wanted, and he did an excellent job with his suggestions, direction and vision. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to have professional portraits taken of them and would also definitely work with him in the future!

Chris works for Living on the Lawn magazine. A private resident community magazine that I am the publisher for. Each month I ask Chris to capture our feature family and his portrait work is as good as it gets. As publisher I trust him to deliver to me every month a series of images of our feature family. One image of the family goes on the cover and his other images fill out the remainder of the feature. He is great with the families. I love his work, but better yet the families love his work and enjoy working with him.
