I recently hired Tyler for my father's 80th birthday party. He showed up on time, he was extremely focused and professional. He managed to successfully photograph a diverse group of partygoers - from babies to seniors - both indoors and outdoors. Additionally, he was respectful of the fact that this was an important event for my family and was willing to stay a little later than contracted to make sure I was satisfied. The pictures were quickly made available to me on his website, and I am extremely pleased with them! He managed to capture the moment regardless of whether it was a candid shot, or a more posed family portrait shot. I would recommend Tyler without reservation.

Emily was a professional and thoughtful photographer. She met us at a park and suffered through our distracted pups to take some great sunset pictures! The photos were available within 24 hours and the website was easy to use.

I have had several sessions with Joseph at CBO Images. I was very pleased with all the work. Not only was he able to capture the memories, but we had a great time! He did my daughter's two year old pictures, and family portraits and even was able to include my American Bulldog! We love all the creative poses he came up with for us! All around great experience.

We booked a "head shots only" session a few weeks in advance, as we are Realtors and needed updated photos for our marketing. Joy did a fantastic job! She started on time! She was able to get a lot of shots in a very short amount of time, as she has a great eye and knows what she wants to capture. And we were VERY pleased with what she captured. She even got our pics back to us the very same day! That was awesome!! THANK YOU, JOY!!! If you are looking for a creative and quality conscious photographer, don't hesitate to schedule Joy Sumpter Photography. We can recommend her for head shot, family photos, senior portraits, weddings, class pictures (as I've seen samples of all of this work)...and so much more. We look forward to having her do a family photo session later in the year!! If you are a Realtor needing to update that 10 year old head shot of yours, Joy is very reasonably priced and you will not be disappointed. Call her TODAY! ~Jack & Debbie Knapp, Realtors with eXp Realty, LLC

Jo Anne is wonderful as a make-up artist. She is very empathetic and understands exactly what you are looking for. Her expert make-over gave me the look I had set my heart on for a long time. She uses the right products and shades to help you achieve your desired look. Plus, she is extremely soft spoken and wonderful.I am excited about Jo Anne doing my make-up for my work Christmas party and just can't wait to see how she is going to transform me :-)

Elijah Kennedy

Nadia Simone B.
Verified review

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.

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.

Lowe took Graduation photos for my sister and I and we couldn't have been more pleased. The results were very high quality photos and you could tell that he works hard for his shots. I was very impressed with his turnover rate and you can tell that he wants his photos to be the best they can be even in a short period of time. Lowe is very personable, honest and direct and has created his own photography style. Lastly, he is very easy to work with, punctual and dependable. I would recommend Lowe for any service without a doubt and you will not be disappointed.

I sourced BKM pictures for photographing my custom lightweight tent/shelter accessories for sale on my outdoor gear website. BKM was able not only to provide STUNNING images that I used in my storefront- he was able capture the essence of the pieces being used in their intended habitat. The images effectively transported viewers. potential buyers to the great outdoors; and the expert techniques used (a secret, by the way...) enhanced the overall aesthetics of my site. Compliments all around. You think this is amazing?? You should see his portrait work...

Skibo was amazing to work with! He was very understanding and flexible of the scheduling difficulties that I had getting all of my family members together for our portraits. The pictures turned out absolutely beautiful! He was quick to respond via call, email and text every time I reached out to him. Based on what I wanted, he was very price competitive compared to others in the area.

Victoria of Victoria V Photography LLC is awesome. She is personable, professional, responsive, and punctual. I had to change my event venue days before, and she was understanding. Despite that it added to her commute time, she arrived at the site early and scoped out some places that would be great background in our photos...all before I got there. She also captured the essence of the event and provided guidance for our portraits, which turned out really nice. Furthermore, she delivered the edited photos ahead of the anticipated schedule. I highly recommend Victoria.
