I had seen Bree’s work on Facebook when a longtime friend had some pictures done for her boyfriend. My friend looked beautiful, and I wondered if my hubby would be interested in me taking any pics as a present for his big 4-0. I showed him Bree’s photos and he was all in. We looked at other photographers and their work, and we agreed Bree’s work was definitely the right style for us. I didn’t need to look like an art piece, heck, if I turned out half as gorgeous as my friend, it would all be okay by me! So I picked up the phone on a Saturday afternoon and talked to Bree. Working with Bree was easy. In one phone call I was set up for a session with so many choices I thought my head would spin. While I had the option of choosing an outfit from her extensive collection with lots of size range, I ended up using an outfit from home with one small missing piece. I could not find shoes I liked, and here was Bree to the rescue with not only one, but 3 pairs of shoes to choose the right pair! My makeup made me look at least 10 years younger, my hair was beautiful, and the Mimosas divine! Bree is really good at getting to know you in a short period of time so you are comfortable and opens up her home studio in an absolutely welcoming way. She’s good at her job, and has great passion for showing her subject in a way that is visually striking, and yet very true to the personality of the person on the other end of the camera. I was apprehensive, being in the midst of a weight loss journey, and not being as confident at photographing well, and Bree put me at ease. The only complaint I had was that I smiled so much I should have brought Vaseline for my teeth like a supermodel. :-) Then we got the images. I was so beautiful. Shames me to say I forgot I could look so beautiful. I don’t think my husband has skipped looking at the photos at least once a day since we got them back! This was a total game changer for my self confidence and I would do it again in a minute- and then do it again!

Our medical office hired Shawn to take some professional portrait photos for our website! He also replied quickly once I put in a request through thumbtack. He was accommodating and worked very hard to get many shots! He had great ideas about lighting, style, posing, and decor. He had a great artistic eye! He was also very social and fun to work with. I would completely recommend him! And I would most definitely hire him again!

Zoe photographed my daughter for her senior pictures. She is a very talented photographer who is professional, with prompt communication and fantastic people skills. My daughter was looking for a photographer who could capture her personality in the photos. She wasn't interested in the tradition senior pictures but rather a portrait of her artsy, nerdy and unique side. Zoe was very creative in finding the right setting for the photographs as well as bringing out my daughter's true personality. I can't speak more highly of Zoe's talent and professionalism.

There are photographers everywhere nowadays. It seems like anyone can go out and buy a fancy camera and study some poses and suddenly, they are a photographer. But what most photographers lack is a true artistic eye for detail, emotion and unique style that is true to their clients. Kyle is not only professional and great to work with, but he brings an experienced and detailed perspective that most other photographers cannot and do not offer. My family hired Kyle to take photos at our latest family reunion, and we were not disappointed. He did an amazing job capturing candid moments that showcased the joy, love and laughter within my family. My grandmother just turned 90 and we never know when our last gathering with her will be. But I feel really grateful knowing that Kyle helped us capture beautiful memories with her that look authentic and true to us. I will definitely be hiring Kyle again for other photography services!

Working with Jason on my daughter's senior pictures was such a fantastic experience from start to finish! Jason is very engaging, and was super responsive, flexible, and thoughtful throughout the whole process. He is a super nice guy, and it was clear that he wanted us to love both our experience and our portraits. And...his photos are beautiful. He has a great eye for incorporating light, depth and color, capturing personality, and for framing the images creatively. He was very relaxed and easy to work with, and he made the process fun! He really cared about getting us a great outcome, and he actively listened to our preferences and needs. Jason made the whole process simple -- from helping us identify a beautiful and easy location that gave us both urban and natural settings in one place, to working out a session plan so our time was used really well so we could get a lot of different settings, poses and outfits worked into our session time. After our session, Jason was super helpful in final edit/retouch, and sending sample images back and forth to make sure we were thrilled with our final portraits - no surprises! I highly recommend Jason!

Nick traveled to our home town for my daughter's senior portrait photo shoot. At first he was pretty quiet but his assistant helped him be more relaxed. He took pictures at three different locations within 3 hours with 3 clothing changes. What was amazing was that Nick had her photos edited and sent to us within 24 hours, some within 6 hours and he had a 2 hr drive back home. Nick did an amazing job and all was said and done within 5 days of contacting him. Thanks Nick for the great experience!

Elizabeth made the subjects of her photography feel so comfortable with her, and with each other, that the photos became outstanding pictures. She selected a background in my yard, which I would not have thought of. It turned out to be a beautiful surrounding. She came to my home 10 days before the photo shoot so that she could meet us and we could get to know her, that made the engagement with her at the event much easier. She got along very well with the 11 members of my family who were present at the event, and we would recommend her as a family portrait and event photographer without reservation.

Greg was great. Professional, punctual, smart and efficient. Great use of light and settings to get the pro look. I'd use his services again. My one area that I wanted more of: I like Greg's eye but I wanted some more 'Holy WOW!' shots. Next time, I'd play a much bigger roll in directing as I was MIA most of the night. I want to LOVE this photographer's eye. With some photographers, I've learned , that means directing what you want.

Hired for engagement photos and couldn’t be happier. Amazing photographer, amazing eye, and super quick turnaround. We even laughed a lot during the session too, which really makes the sometimes “awkward” experience of having professional photos that much more relaxing. Would highly recommend Jennifer for portraits or, really, any photo needs.

I am writing this testimonial for a true artist and a professional photographer. I’ve met Jeffrey after enrolling in one of his classes many years ago. I was nicely surprised and very impressed by his knowledge of the subject and his passion for photography which make him a fine photographer. We all know that strategy matters and passion rules. Jeffrey has both in addition to being very creative and meaningful. He knows how to operate a camera, how to use it in order the get the best effect, and always capture the essence of the image. After meeting him as an instructor, I decided to use his service for my professional business because I know he would capture the important as he really gets the thorough picture of what we want to see and get. Photography is an art and Jeffrey is truly a competent photographer and an artist in his field. He is very experienced and knows his camera and any other camera students bring in the classroom. As a teacher, he is able to help you getting to know your camera and using it at its best. As a personal professional photographer, he knows what you need and the result is always impressive.

I definitely recommend Natalie and will hire her again in the future! I've hired her 3 times, both as a photographer and retoucher. 1. She photographed / retouched our small family wedding ceremony (7 people) -- including indoor dinner and outdoor family photos. 2. She photographed / retouched our larger wedding reception (100 people) -- outdoor and night photography. 3. She took professional headshots for me. She's warm and friendly - even family members and friends who claim they don't like having their photo taken loved working with her. People loved the photos, many ordered prints of themselves/their families from our wedding. She's also great at picking interesting backgrounds and I particularly like how she coaches you to bring out your best angles. Her retouching costs more, but definitely worth it for the photos we chose to print/hang. It's natural -- no cheesy photoshopping, so everyone looks great.

Andrew Achong is AMAZING! He delivers high level professionalism with a unique creativity I have yet to see others exude. In fact, when we were taking bridal portraits at the White House hotel in Biloxi, several staff members commented on the uniqueness of the shoot. They said that they see photographers in there constantly but all of them take the same shots. Not Andrew. He was laying on the ground, climbing on furniture and ledges, making you laugh (or in my case, helping me not be awkward) all to get the PERFECT shot. He definitely knows how to capture the moment. He loves black and white photos but, of course, is amazing with color as well. He shares a passion for photography that so many photographers have lost. You can tell he has fun doing it and that shows in his work. He is super flexible, efficient and accommodating. So much so that he was able to get my bridal portraits shot, edited, printed and displayed in less than a week before the wedding. Delivering the impossible! He is an exceptional guy and an even more remarkable photographer. He is incredible to work with and you will not be disappointed in his shots. He excels in capturing action shots with impeccable timing. He is super responsive and we always received our pictures from him so quickly! I used him for family portraits (including one baby and a toddler {takes skill}), bridal portraits, rehearsal dinner, and our wedding. I can’t say enough positive things about Andrew. I absolutely, without a doubt, recommend his services to EVERYONE. You will love reliving the moment with his photos.
