Emily did an outstanding job with our engagement shoot! Not only was her pricing extremely affordable, she had excellent professionalism, creativity, skill, and communication. Her turn-aroud time for sending us the photos was unheard of, too -- next day we had the link to all the photos she'd taken of us. And we have over 100 photos from 2 locations combined. Emily was patient, flexible, eager to please, and definitely someone I'd book again. Hire her and you won't be disappointed!

My fiance and I had an amazing experience working with Emily for our engagement session. Her photos came out beautiful and she was so easy to work with, as we have never had professional photos taken before. I can't recommend Emily enough to anyone looking for an approachable and professional photographer in the Richmond area!

Emily took our engagement photos at our favorite location in Charlottesville last Sunday. We received our pictures the following Thursday, and we are gleaming with joy! Emily was so great to work with and she was very thoughtful when deciding the angles of the photos. We are so delighted! Thank you Emily!

Joseph is an outstanding photographer to work with. He was able to work around my schedule and took amazing shots of my daughter. She was nervous at first but he made the session fun and easy going. When we weren't looking he took pictures that made us laugh because he captured us enjoying that moment. He also took the time and gave my daughter tips on thinking out of the box when it came to using her own camera. Joseph not only makes the sessions professional but a learning experience. If you need someone who can vision your session with style and class CBOImages is for you.

Hire AmyLauren Photography! My fiance and I booked Amy for our wedding which will take place in June 2016. From the initial phone call and email messages, Amy has been very responsive, warm and knowledgeable. We finished our engagement shoot a few weeks ago and the photos were delivered extremely quickly. The photos are INCREDIBLE. Amy has a brilliant eye for choosing settings, lighting and angles that bring out the best possible photos. She is very talented and creative. Also, Amy's kind/fun demeanor helped us warm up very quickly and the session was a blast! We cannot wait for the wedding day photos. We highly recommend her, you won't be disappointed if you choose her for your photography needs.

Amy is a superstar behind a camera! My husband and I had the pleasure of working with Amy for both our engagement and wedding photos. It was difficult to find ones that we didn't like! Her work is beautiful and we get compliments daily on the quality and creativity of the shots! Amy was there to recommend poses, locations to shoot and caught every highlight of our special day. I can look back at the photos and see clearly how the day played out and that is a beautiful thing! Amy works very quickly! We had our engagement photos back within a weekend and the wedding album (over 700!!!) within a week. She is absolutely amazing and I highly recommend her!

I needed an updated photo for business purposes, and I wanted to be photographed outside. Sandy was willing to photograph me at Maymont Park and we had a fun-filled afternoon and the photos were perfect! Then she photographed my wedding, and my daughter's wedding! Sandy is a gifted photographer and the sweetest and most caring person you'll ever find! Diane Hall

If you haven't had photos taken by Sass and Frass Photography you are missing out. Sandy is such a rare talent who finds a way to connect with you and make you feel so comfortable. We recently did a family photo session, and everyone from my 6 year old niece to my 88 year old grandmother were truly enamored by her. You'll never need another photographer!

My daughter hates to have her picture taken but she loved the shoot with Sandy. The photos capture her and she is so happy to have a shot she likes. I'm putting Sandy in the gifted photographer category. She is a visionary!

What went well: Christina of ChrsRox Photography was very quick to respond to my inquiry and was flexible in setting up a time that met my calendar needs. I loved that she was mobile and could come to my home! The session was relaxed and it was evident that Christina enjoys what she does. She made recommendations for my poses which resulted in great choices for me. Payment was convenient and I received my photos in advance of when she promised them to me. Overall a good experience. What could be done differently: Invest in additional back drop choices. There were only two (black and white).

Verified review

I am firm believer that talent is the most valuable thing you can have, and ChrsRox has tons. The eye you must have as a photographer is something I don't believe can be taught. ChrsRox is her own self, and proud of it, such individuality is rare these days in a person. Her work with black and white is to be admired for its contrasting beauty. I don't see many photos of myself I like, but ChrsRox made me feel beautiful in my skin, and I'm ready for another shoot girl.

Gosh, where do I begin? Simply put, Alyse captures the magic of life and love. The first time the fella and I met her in person was on our wedding day and she immediately felt like an old friend, putting us both at ease. And she killed it behind the lens! We have so many incredible pictures to remember that special day forever ever. Alyse was THE photographer we wanted for our wedding, but wasn't sure we'd be able to find.

Elijah possesses an exceptional degree of enthusiasm and ardor for life. This really translates into his work. Elijah is prone to noticing the little details and idiosyncrasies about life, and has a unique, characteristic way of amplifying them in his artwork so that they are able to be visibly recognized by others. Not only is he inspirational and a pleasure to be around, but he has a strong work ethic, and, if he is passionate about something, he will work tirelessly until he reaches a desired result. He is deeply creative, and so his best work is created when he is given the space and opportunity to allow for his ideas to become realized. However, he is also intuitive to other's opinions and desires, and he is able to benefit from a degree of constructive direction. He values honesty, because he cares as deeply about the outcome as he does the process. Elijah is truly multi-talented; regardless of the task at hand, he produces brilliant work. In addition to the wide array of artistic experiences gained from his degree from the highest ranked public art school in the United States (VCU), he has had professional experience with mural design, video and sound design, drawing and painting, illustration, and photography. Having known and worked with Elijah for six years now, I can with confidence say that he is an excellent individual to work with. If you are seeking an imaginative, innovative, quirky and professional individual to add to a project or team, Elijah will not disappoint, especially if he is given the opportunity to thrive in a setting where his sense of originality is understood, valued, and appreciated.

Elijah was absolutely wonderful to work with. We booked him for an event in DC and he was consistently in communication beforehand to ensure they day of the event went smoothly. He arrived early for the event and was extremely professional in his work. We often needed him to help with last minute issues and he was only too quick to oblige. He sent us the photos shortly after the event and the quality was exceptional. We will continue to use Elijah for our events and I am more than happy to recommend his service for any kind of function.

I have collaborated with and commissioned Elijah for numerous projects. He is an extremely good communicator who offers relevant and insightful suggestions. Because of his energetic and optimistic attitude, our projects always reach great potential. Elijah is a hard worker and a fast learner. He is not afraid to take creative risks. If you are looking for a videographer / photographer who can handle trekking in the great outdoors, Elijah Kennedy is your guy. This guy can handle whatever Mother Nature throws at him (so far).

I have worked with a number of very different photographers, and Glen has always stood out as being one of the best I have ever worked with! He is truly exceptional, and always produces the best photos. What really sticks out, though, is that he is respectful and kind and gives great direction, whether you are seasoned in front of a camera or a new model. I would highly recommend working with him.

Working with Glen was a great experience. I've been modeling for the past 6 years and he's definitely in my top list of best photographers to work with. I felt very comfortable all the time, and the final shoots look great. He was so good that the pics were chosen to be in a magazine next month. I look forward to work with him again.

Brian did an excellent job with my portrait headshots. His professionalism and expertise made the shoot very easy for me from the start. I was very impressed with his work quality and overall professionalism. I did not have any portrait experience prior to working with Brian, but he went out of his way to make me feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera. He offered sound advice on how to utilize my eyebrows, facial expressions, and body language to maximize the emotion captured in the photo. He also provided great advice on which wardrobes worked best during the shoot. Overall, it was a privilege to work with Brian and I would highly recommend him.

Brian did some outdoor family portraits for us, and they are wonderful! Before the shoot, he took the time to speak with me about location, clothing, and the types of poses I was looking for. During the shoot, he was very professional and organized; plus, he was great with my three kids! He also gave us lots of tips and suggestions throughout the shoot. The photos turned out beautifully! I would definitely recommend Brian and plan to use him again in the future.

Brian did an exceptional job shooting the Commonwealth Catholic Charities international potluck event for foster kids! Not only was the quality of his photos top-notch, his shots showed an expertise and creativity only gained through experience. He was excellent to work with, reliable and prompt, and had a big heart for the kids and staff. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone! Thank you, Brian! Your number is in my phone for my next event.

Jeff was recommended to us through our wedding planner. Here's why we chose him: His name sounded familiar, and it was because he is someone we didn't personally know, but knew of like 10 years ago... so we were excited to support his photography venture. Hubby and I are into film photography and love the film-look which is Jeff's personal style as well. At the time of our wedding in 2014, Jeff was still pretty green to the industry—but he understands all the principles of light and photography so I felt 100% confident we wouldn't have wedding photos that look like they were shot by "an uncle's friend's nephew who is getting into photography and just got a DSLR last month." (These sounding gestures are thoughtful, but should always be politely declined for your wedding). Results: Lots of great captures! I ain't mad at nothin'! Given some of the constraints and challenges of the day (harsh lighting, disorganization of family members and most guests for that matter), I feel we got a great value. Conclusion: By the time you read this review, Jeff will probably have shot at LEAST a handful more weddings and leveled up his XP points and have become an even BETTER wedding photographer. All his technical expertise is there and I just know that after he gets a bunch of weddings under his belt, he'll be among the highest recommended in Virginia.

Jeffrey is an amazing photographer and go-getter. As an event planner, I'm pretty particular (read: perfectionist). The person that would capture the details, moments, and memories of our wedding day had to pretty awesome what they do. Jeffrey has a great eye and photography style that I love -- I didn't even really have a shot list and he was able to shoot everything that I never even thought about. It was fun working with him too -- he wasn't afraid to lay on the asphalt or stand in the cold to get the right shot. He's passionate about his art and I highly recommend him to brides and event planners alike!

My fiance and I had no qualms about booking Jeff for our engagement photo shoot. He was very punctual, gave great advice, made us feel comfortable, and he knew exactly what kind of feel we were going for in our photos. When it came to his photos, it was no surprise that they turned out to be exactly what we wanted and more. We were 100% happy with Jeff's professionalism, talent, and great eye. It also helped that he's a frenchie lover and knew how to capture our dog, Poey. We will love showing off our photos on our wedding day and to our future kids. Jeff is the best!

I was provided with photography services by Tiffany Michele Images. I was thoroughly pleased with the service I received and have booked Tiffany a total of 3 times. I was first referred by a friend. Tiffany took maternity pictures for me. I was so pleased with the photos, Tiffany's creativity, the package prices, and Tiffany's professionalism that I booked her for my baby shower and my daughter's Christening. In addition, Tiffany also traveled approximately an hour for the Christening. This was extremely convenient for me. I appreciate her willingness to please her customers. The photos taken by Tiffany are always beautiful and I love the poses. I plan to book Tiffany Michele Images for future special events and would recommend her to anyone.

We hired Justin Sheets to take our wedding photos. We could not possibly be any happier with the outcome. He took time to discuss our vision of the type of photographs we'd like to have and made our dream a reality. With a mix of professional posed photos and candid shots, our day was captured from beginning to end. Not only did he take detailed notes of our desires, he also offered a variety of poses, lenses and color schemes we never would have thought of on our own! These photos will serve as a memory of the greatest day of our lives. We would very highly recommend hiring Justin Sheets for any sort of photography you may need. He is professional, punctual, extremely talented and genuinely cares about his clients and their vision. If you are looking for the best in the industry, Justin Sheets is the man to see!

I have seen Justin Sheets work a Wedding and recently had the opportunity to have him over and take pictures of my Son. The Wedding shots were so picturesque that many people have asked me about his services. He is professional, quick and very experienced. It was an extreme challenge to work with my schedule and weather conflicts, and every time we picked a new date he was understanding and courteous about the needed change. He is very good with children, and my Son gravitated towards him immediately and therefore getting great shots of him seemed an easy task. I would highly recommend him for any type of photographic needs due to his laid back demeanor and style.

My office recently hired Focal Fix Photography to take professional headshots of the employees, and it was overall a great experience! Kyle is a talented photographer and easy to work with. Very professional, friendly, and accommodating. He even let us scroll through our pictures during the photo shoot and choose the one that we would want to use as our headshot; and if we weren’t satisfied with the pictures we already took, he would let us take more! That’s a service I’ve never had offered in the past when getting professional headshots taken. Very cool! I highly recommend Focal Fix Photography’s services for your photography needs!
