Tyler is awesome! There is no better way to describe his work. He has an extremely professional approach and like the best photographers is always present but never there. The pictures he took were absolutely stunning. We got so many compliments on the photographs and the way he captured every special moment was amazing. The use of light and scenery was the best I have ever seen. I think Tyler will be photographer for special events for a long long time.

I am absolutely happy with Tyler's work ethic and professionalism, I have stopped looking for photographers after the amazing jobs he is done for my company, Always professional, right on schedule, and anticipation of our needs as a Real Estate firm is the key to sale homes. Photos capture magic and Tyler's Photos capture extra light. Hire him right now I can give you my word you will not regret. Thank you Tyler

Tyler was so easy to work with and gave us the quality images we desperately needed for our preschool. We had hired 2 photographers prior to him that we did not have any luck with. His price point is fair, he got the images to us that night and he more than delivered with the quality of his photos. We will absolutely use him again! Thanks so much for being so easy to work with, Tyler!

(I procured the Cohens' services November of 2015; I apologize for the tardiness of my review.) I looooooove Marie and Norman! They provided my party with a talking piece, a fun activity, and a party favor all in one! I felt secure from the moment Norman and I spoke on the phone for the first time. We actually spoke for an hour; he answered my questions and explained the process as well as the contract. Marie is very sharp and handled the deposit, payment, and contract proceedings well; on the day of my party, they sent me the template for my pictures and made changes without frustration (that I perceived anyway). At my birthday party, my friends and guests LOVED the booth and acted like little kids, trying on and wearing every prop the Cohens provided. The Cohens were thorough in the amount of props they offered, I must say. I appreciate how down to earth they are. They mingled and danced with my guests; they weren't "too professional" in behavior and easily conversed with my friends and I; they were more like party participants than photographers! They were very flexible with the change in booths, payment type, and the dismantling of their booth. I know that the changes were simple, per se', but I do not take it for granted that they rolled with them and accommodated me (I am very particular and high-maintenance). Because of their willingness to please, their recognition of and special discounts for teacher/service-oriented persons, and personable attitudes, I will use them EVERY time I have a party! Thanks Guys!

Norman is so awesome to work with!! He's easy going and all about making what you want possible. His photo booth was such a hit at our wedding and even the people who shy away from the camera were taking picture after picture because they were having such a great time with props and getting to have fun souvenirs to take home. He's got a great personality and we always enjoy being around him. I'd highly recommend him to anyone for a photographer and/or photo booth!

Our employees had a wonderful time using the photobooth. The props and booth and the convenience of getting their printed pictures while at the event was loved by the employees. It was such an awesome touch to our annual casino event. We will definitely use them and highly recommend them. Thank you again to Marie and Norman.

My fiance and I had an amazing experience working with Emily for our engagement session.

Dulcie took the photographs we needed for listing our home. She got the photos back to us in a day which allowed us to get our house listed for the weekend. The photos were beautiful and did a great job showing the highlights of our home. The results were overwhelming. We had people calling us to see the house immediately stating that the house looked great online. Over the next week, we showed the house an average of five times a day. By the end of the week, we had a very strong offer which we took. We owe this quick sale to the way our house looked in the photographs. It drove a large amount of traffic our way. Thank you Dulcie!

Karen was my wedding photographer (9/24/16) and she also shot my bridal portraits. Before both events she was very responsive---quickly answering all my questions. On-site, she was easy to work with and she accommodated my pose requests while giving direction in a clear, yet relaxed manner. I loved how all the pictures came out! In addition, everyone who has seen the pictures has been similarly impressed. Using Karen Gage Photography was one of the best wedding decisions I made and I would absolutely use her for future events as well. 10/10

Karen does an amazing job with all of our shoots. We hired her for our indoor wedding and were so impressed we now use her as our exclusive photographer. When we went to have our daughter's 1 year birthday shoot, our daughter was not having any of it and pretty much cried the whole time. Somehow, however, Karen was able to capture multiple pictures of her looking very happy and cute. She has creative and unique ideas and does beautiful work. Her prices are reasonable and she's fun to work with.

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!

I had a great experience working with Sandy of Sass & Frass Photography. Our pictures turned out so well, and she made the photo shoot fun! She was so patient with my fussy 14 month old. The best part- you wouldn't even know my daughter was fussy that day by looking at the pictures! -LDL

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).

Max O.

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.

Alyse had a sudden opening, so she approached me about doing a concept boudoir session that turned out to be the most empowering thing I have ever experienced! She was incredibly flexible with time and location suggestions, and her gentle guidance brought out the inner fierceness that I had forgotten existed. She helped me to have a one-of-a-kind experience at the exactly right time that I needed it! Her editing style is gentle and soft, light focused, which really helps to highlight your best qualities. I hope that she continues to seek out unique boudoir sessions to help lift up women of all kinds, because she is incredibly talented and has a special relatability that gives her a special up and edge in this field of photography.

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).

My husband, Brian, and I couldn’t be happier with selecting Gayle and Brent as our wedding photographers. When Brian and I started looking for a photographer for our wedding, we met with a few different companies before meeting with Gayle and Brent. After our first meeting with them, we knew that they were the photographers for us. They are great to work with and truly share in the excitement of planning the event. They come up with some great ideas and are willing to do anything to make your photos turn out the way that you want them to. So far they have shot our engagement photo shoot and we couldn’t have asked for better shots. They really take the time to make sure that the photos turn out the best possible.

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!

The photo booth got rave reviews from our wedding guests. Friends and family had so much fun with the photo booth--they're still talking about the photos they took weeks after the wedding. We ordered the guest book, and it's well worth the extra money! We had almost 200 guests at our wedding, so it was hard to find time to chat with everyone, so the guest book was a great way for us to "connect" with guests we didn't get a chance to chat with in person. And, it was a ton of fun looking at everyone's photos, and the messages they had written, in the book the day after the wedding. 100% would recommend the MMGPhoto Booth to any couple!

I highly recommend their services to anyone looking to have a photobooth at their event, and I really can't say enough kind things about MMG's business and their support every step of the way. From the initial contact, all the way to them packing up and heading out from the reception, everything was absolutely perfect. Thank you so much.___Kelly G.

We used MMGPhoto Booth for a corporate event and it was a big hit. Before the event, Kaila made sure we were happy with the design of the strips. The open booth allowed for many employee shots, and the attendant was really helpful. They were there on time, and were a joy to have around. Everyone was anxious to "get their shots". Amazingly enough, they sent me a link with all of the photos at 2:00 am, only 4 1/2 hours after the event ended. Now that's great service. I can't wait until the next event, so we can use them again.

About

My main goal in photographing your session or event is to relay to everyone else how great you, your family, or your special day is. I find that the more photography becomes a product, the less it becomes about photographic ability and the meaning to the subject. I aim to show your genuine personality in a way that is meaningful to you and your loved ones. I shoot portraits of all kinds as well as parties and events. I provide digital albums and can provide prints upon request. Please contact me personally if you would like to know the pricing of a session, because I want to ensure you are receiving the most up-to-date information.
