We hired Mark East for a corporate Grand Opening event and he when above and beyond. We needed the photos immediately after the event for PR needs and he accommodated. He was extremely responsive which was must appreciated with our short lead time. He also catered to our unique requests, including uploading the photos right after he takes them and uploading to two different links. Not only was he accommodating but his photos were beautiful, professional and exactly what our client needed. We had him booked for four hours but he finished early, capturing everything on the shot list and then some. I do have to say that he didn't take and upload TOO many photos either. We have hired photographers in the past that take so many photos it takes hours too look through them all, Mark's were the perfect quantity. I recommend hiring him for your photographer needs.

I've dealt with severely photographers in the past and Sandy has gone above and beyond the standard. In my experience I needed pictures made and proofed in a matter of weeks prior to Christmas. She fit me into her schedule regardless of my last minute request and had me set with room to spare. I have felt quite awkward with my sessions with previous photographers and it wasn't a pleasant experience at all. Not so with Sandy, she is very welcoming and bendable to requests. All this may sound too good to be true, but I would encourage anyone who needs professional photos to seriously consider Memory Lane. I'm more than satisfied!

Russ & Carolyn photographed my husband and I beautiful lakeside wedding in June, and we couldn't have asked for better photographers, they were both outstanding. Very personal and listened to everything I wanted. We met a few times before the wedding to get a fell of what we wanted and i had no doubt in my mind we get great pictures which is a great feeling for a bride to be. Our pictures came out more then beautiful. They know how to capture very special Moments of your life that you will cherish forever. People are still telling us how beautiful our pictures came out. : ) I would definitely recommend them if your looking for a wedding Photographer. I look forward to booking them again we have our babies on the way!

Jonathan Messenger has always gone above and beyond what a photographer should. He's taken sports pictures for my kids on two different seasons, two different teams, and both times I asked him to do something that other photographers refused to do. Once I asked him to print pictures that he didn't even take (I forgot when I ordered that one of my sons wasn't even on that team, duh!) This seemed like no big deal to him - - he asked me to email my own picture to him, and he made both boys have matching sets of pictures, just like I wanted!! The second season, our sports team was so small that several other photographers turned us down. It wasn't worth their while to drive all the way out to our practice, just for a handful of kids. Jonathan and his wife seemed to be more than happy to drive out to us, take fantastic pictures, and even delivered them back to us! I am very pleased with not only the pictures they provide, the the friendly attitude that comes along with!!!

Emily is very professional while putting me at ease during our photo shoot. She has a gift for making the most of natural surroundings to bring out the best angles, light, and artistic expression. The resulting photos are just beautiful and polished and I have used them for my professional LinkedIn profile as well as facebook profile. I have been receiving much positive feedback online on how lovely the photos of me are. Emily is a fine photographer and artist!

My experience with Ethos was absolutely amazing. I’ve been working with Josh for about a year an a half now and he is my go to photographer. I would highly recommend to anyone, very easy going and super easy to get comfortable with enough to be able to be your silly self with and do random poses and faces without being shy.

Ms. Sampson photographed a recent party held in our honor. She absolutely captured the personalities of all of the folks she photographed. She has a talent for capturing the photos "between" the photos, moments where the subject has stopped posing and forgotten about the photographer. I can't say enough about the quality of her work.

While the quality of our work is important and we are continually working on improving it each day, we have found that it is far more important to develop relationships with our clients. We want our brides to have fun with us and that shows in their photos.

I can do weddings, school photos and events, graduation, birthday parties, families, couples, single persons, pets, children and toddlers, newborns, babies and more. I also do photography editing (black and white, sepia, collages, frames, selective coloring and more). All of this for a small negotiable price. The best part is, I do not print your pictures. I edit them, remove red-eye, adjust colors and any editing you might like done. I then put them on a CD for you to keep. You can take them to Wal-mart or any other photo place even and get them printed. You can print them at home or e-mail them to friends and family. Unlimited copies and use for you. All you are paying for is the time and my skills. Please call or e-mail me if interested. (My camera is a Nikon D90) Kelly Woodford Phoenix Photography

Personality and poise have a lot to do with event photography. To pushy UGH, not enough- no pics. Just the right amount and thats a good combination. Posing people for the shot can be delicate at times. Patience and the right attitude is essential.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
