Marian and Mike Linett were and amazing couple to meet and were very professional when it comes to there photography business. There prices were very affordable even on a budget and when you visit them to discuss what you want for your photos in there home they make you feel very welcomed. Marian was the one who was our photographer. She was so nice, funny and very outgoing and her photos for me and my bride came out amazing. She knows what places to take the pictures at the Founders Inn to make the wedding experiance amazing. She even showed up a little early to help out my bride when she was getting ready. I would deffinetly recommend Marian and Mike Linett to be your photographer for your wedding. A Deffinet Five Star with out a doubt..Thank you Marian and Mike Linett You guys are the best!!

We were holding a family reunion for our mom's 80th birthday in a centralized location where we had no contacts. Since we as a family only get together very seldom, this was an opportunity to create some long lasting memories. I searched for a photographer on-line in the Williamsburg, VA area and found Leigh Ann Hartsfield via Thumbtack. She accepted my bid for remote photography/portrait services. Leigh Ann showed up on time, welcomed some of my suggestions, added some suggestions of her own and the results were phenomenal. She was professional and delivered on her promises; which in turn gave us family portraits to last a lifetime! Thank you, Leigh Ann and Thumbtack. I recommend your services to others who may have similar photography needs.

Hired Leigh Ann to get photos done for a couple of different purposes including professional headshots and full length shots. Leigh Ann was reasonably priced and her portfolio was proof of her exceptional talent as a photographer. Photo shoot was very easy and relaxed. Leigh Ann was also very accommodating of several wardrobe changes needed to get the right shots for what I wanted. Very happy with the final product and the entire transaction. Will use Leigh Ann again for my photography needs and will recommend her to my friends.

We found Leigh Ann on Thumbtack, and the moment we met her we knew she was the photographer we wanted. As we talked about what we wanted, she offered her artistic perspective to help ensure the perfect pictures. She is an artist and a professional that helped preserve our special day. I am not at all surprised that she recently won an award, she absolutely deserves it. If ever I need a photographer again, Leigh Ann will be my first call.

If I could give more stars I would!!!! Hands down the best experience I have ever had with a photographer. I have never felt more comfortable. I could not be happier with my pictures and my overall experience - I will literally never use another photographer again. Quality of work and attention to detail was just phenomenal. And as an added bonus - her make up artist works actual miracles!

I was VERY lucky to find MFS Photography when I did an online inquiry of photographers in the Hampton, VA area. I submitted a price quote for some digital photographs (several group and some candid shots) to be taken at our family reunion during the 4th of July weekend. MFS Photography had the most reasonable rates so I accepted the quote. He contacted me before the event and was very professional and personable. He went out to the site (we had reserved an event room at a Hampton Inn) before the event to check out the environment. He called me to let me know that the room as it was set up would not be big enough to take group shots for the total number of people we were expecting and recommended an exterior location for the (everyone included) shots. On the day of the event he arrived early. What surprised me the most was that he pitched in and helped us transport things from our cars to the event room. So he not only photographed us, but he helped us with some of our busy work. That was so unexpected, welcomed and highly appreciated. He stayed with us longer than the couple of hours that he had promised. The next day, in spite of the fact that he was doing a wedding, he delivered the digital photos as promised. Our family enjoyed having Michael with us on the first day of our event. I wish I had found him earlier and been able to engage him for all three days. I highly recommend him and do plan to use him for our future reunions if he is available. A VERY satisfied customer, Vivian Nwankpah

Quality of images is great, but photographer's lens was dirty for 95% of the shots. Luckily we were able to remove the lint via Photoshop. Great communication and delivery otherwise.

Parker is an amazing photographer—one of the best I’ve ever worked with! He goes above and beyond with his communication and to ensure the client feels comfortable and at ease! He has such an amazing eye—every photo he takes is magical! He’s the best photographer in the Hampton Roads! But, don’t take my word for it, though! Check out his website!

My experience with Nicolette Duke was fun. This was a maternity shoot. We had to change our location due to construction however, it still turned out to be a great experience. I can not wait to see the photos of me and my fiance and the baby bump. She is easy going and kinda let us do our own thing and I felt very relaxed. I may review again after I see the photos. Thanks Nicoette! :) -Sharon M.

His warm and friendly disposition helped to make our guests feel comfortable while still managing to capture every precious moment! Such precious memories...we had a few photographers to choose from and we are so thankful that we decided to go with Scott! And the turnaround for our photos was very fast!

Love her!! She's captured my family from engagement, our (HUGE) wedding, my maternity session, my daughters newborn session, her 1 year smash cake session and then our family session! Brandi captures every priceless moment, candid, posed, you name it, and has the most bubbly, fun personality, I couldn't ask for more in a photographer and will use her for years to come! I'll never forget when she took care of us on our wedding day, 11 HOURS and she was 8 MONTHS pregnant! Her dedication to her work and absolute talent is unparalleled! If you're looking for a photographer that gets a 'natural' smile, she'll stand on her head to get your kids giggling, works on the adults, too!

My husband and I got our "Farewell Marine Corp" photos taken at Shelly Ramsey Photography and all I can say are great things! Literally from the moment I contacted her, she kept in touch and even helped me choose outfits for the the setting so everything would be absolutely perfect! On the day of the shoot, she made everything completely comfortable and I felt as if we have known each other for years! She came prepared with several different unique poses she had written down along with the ones she already had mastered! My husband is the typical "manly man" and to be honest wasn't too thrilled about getting pictures done. But once we started it didn't take anything more than seconds before she had him laughing and having a great time! When we were finished, I pulled him aside and asked what he thought honestly and he said "I had a blast! I never knew someone could make taking pictures so fun!" Not only did we have a great time during the shoot, but once the shoot was over it didn't take long before Michelle was posting some preview pictures! She is the definition of a hardworking, dedicated photographer! She is worth every penny spent and some! I highly recommend going to Shelly Ramsey Photography for any occasion! You are guaranteed to have a great time, and have spotless photos to last you a lifetime!

I had a great experience with Jose Morelos Photography. Jose did our family pictures, and knocked it out of the park! He was awesome, he made the family look great, and we had a good time as well. He reads his clients well, and knows what will work with them. I had seen some of his work before, and thought it was pretty good ( he did staff pictures for the company website). Seeing his candid shots is what convinced me to have him do our family photos. He really seems to have an eye for capturing the personality of the people he photographs. I generally don't like having professional photos made, but Jose changed my mind. I no longer live close by, but I will make the three to four hour drive next time I need family pictures!

This was the most comfortable photo shoot I’ve ever done with my husband and children. It never felt forced and it was more like we were just there hanging out than posing for pictures. Jose captured some beautiful candid moments as a result of that. Highly recommend him!

The quality of Jose’s photos are excellent. His skills with lighting and balance capture the natural beauty of his subjects, never looking posed or rigid. His photos tell a story, not just present a pretty picture.

Davida was a delight to work with. She was very punctual when asked to be at the venue on time. She arrived early to scope the venue out to see where she could get some great pictures for us for our wedding. She provided us with additional services that's not typically of a photographer, but to make sure our day went well she went above and beyond what she was contracted to do for us. Despite the personal tragedy she suffered days before our wedding, she continued on with our wedding in a very professional manner. You wouldn't have ever known she had just gone thru something so heartbreaking and continued to smile thru the pain she was enduring. I would recommend Elite Diamond Photography to my friends and family for Davida's pricing is very reasonable, she's personable and was a delight to work with. I wish her the best in every way possible. May God continue to show favor over her life and Bless her business.
