Rowell was awesome! I play for the Seattle Sounders PDL U-23 team and I had him come out and take some shots from our last game of the summer. The photos turned out far better than what I imagined! I would definitely recommend Rowell for your sports photography needs.

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.

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.

Gunther did such an awesome job with my husband and I's engagement pictures. We wanted to use the powdered color chalk and throw it at each other and just have fun, and Gunther captured it all beautifully on camera. The colors turned out so vibrant and the editing was done perfectly. They are our favorite pictures and we were able to make beautiful canvas prints out of them. Gunther did the photoshoot and got us the pictures via thumb drive in record time. We had large and small files to work with for our varies needs. I would definitely recommend Gunther for an upcoming photoshoot. He has techniques that not alot of other photographers take the time to learn along with a great personality to make it a fun experience.

Lisa Sellge most recently shot our Christmas card photos. It was just a few weeks before Christmas, however Lisa was not fazed. I had jokingly mentioned we had always wanted a portrait with our pets and she said to bring them! She worked around our busy schedule and set up an appointment that was convenient for us. We had originally planned to take our photos in a field, but another obligation caused us to arrive late and miss the daylight. Therefore, Lisa invited all of us – including our two chickens, two rabbits, and three large dogs – into her home to have our photo session. Her patience with us and our furry critters was tremendous, and we were quite excited to see the amazing shots she had captured. However, Lisa’s photography skills and sweet nature didn’t end with the last click of our shoot, as afterwards she graciously offered her time to help me choose the layout of the actual card. The resulting card was outstanding, and our family and friends all proclaimed how much they loved it. In the past, Lisa has also taken beautiful ballet portraits of my daughter, demonstrating her superb creative and technical eye. Additionally, Lisa has great skill in live action and has shot several of our studio’s ballet performances. With action shots, timing and angle is crucial, and Lisa is definitely a natural in understanding both of these aspects. She captures the dancers en pointe and at the height of their movements every time. All in all, Lisa is a wonderful and sweet photographer, and we look forward to using her expertise many times in the future.

I am a colleague of his and we have been in the same photography class. During our photo critique projects, I could tell that he is comfortable photographing people in different events and settings. In addition, skilled in using photograph editing, capturing anniversary events, sports, and portraits.

    Alexis Grosclaude is a fantastic photographer. She did an engagement shoot for my partner and I. As an amateur photographer myself, I have high standards. Alexis surpassed and expectation I could possibly have. We took our pictures by a lake. She showed up with props and ideas. Where many other photographers would have spent time trying to come up with poses, she had clearly done her research. We received our photos from the shoot, fully edited within a few days. They were outstanding. She captured the emotions my partner and I feel for eachother in her pictures. They were beautiful. She listened to every suggestion and request I made, while still being very flexible with payment. Alexis Grosclaude is an incredible young photographer. I highly recommend her.

    I've worked with Jody multiple times and she is terrific. In addition to action photos for our soccer and track teams, we had Jody do photo shoots for both of our boys' senior pictures. She took outdoor photos and was flexible on timing, even planning two different shoots so that we could get different lighting and different surroundings, and she caught some fantastic shots when the weather didn't cooperate and it began to rain!! (then she rescheduled us for another photo shoot, so we could have sun also). The pictures speak for themselves as for the quality of her work. Our boys had so many great photos to choose from it was hard to narrow it down to one shot for the yearbook. And as for her sports photography, I've never seen better action shots… Jody seems to capture kids in action like no one else!

      Mike is my roommate. I work full time in semi-corporate environment and I've been needing some decent headshots taken. I know he's actually a photographer and has made the leap from hobby to full-time deal. He took my headshots and they look pretty darn good. You can see mine right here: http://imgur.com/ECxYXPY. I have several other great ones too for my facebook and other things. He did me this as a favor but I would pay a hundred or more for the results and I found it pretty fun to actually drive out to a photo shoot.

        I hired Brian for sports photography. I was very please with the results. Brian was hired to cover the largest baseball event in 10 years at the Everett AquaSox (minor league baseball). With an over capacity stadium and inundation of local media covering the "return of Felix Hernandez" I knew I needed someone who: 1. Wasn't going to flinch under the pressure 2. Will meet my absolute deadlines 3. Meet all my requirements 4. Did not need direction 5. Abide by stringent restrictions/ethics required of sports media 6. And add artistry that is appropriate for a baseball fan's aesthetic. Brian was at home wading through a sea of photographers, gave me my photos 3 days before the deadline I set for him, and got the photos of the athletes I required (and more). Furthermore, I did not have to babysit him, he did not violate the rules (written and unwritten) of the sports media, and I received beautiful photos with players in action. I have used several photos for my Sports (seattlesportsunion.com) publication and I intend to hire him again in future important endevors.

We really appreciated her effort, and organization. I plan on hiring Riley for our future events, and recommend to all our freiends
