I had seen Brees 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 Brees photos and he was all in. We looked at other photographers and their work, and we agreed Brees work was definitely the right style for us. I didnt 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. Shes 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 dont 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!
Zoe Burchard is a photographer that listens to the needs and wants of the designer. I have had nothing but positive experiences with Zoe's work and Zoe herself as I have worked with her on multiple occasions. She makes my work come to life in a photo. She is hard working, and nothing is acceptable but the absolute best. 10/10
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!
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!
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.
Katrina has a way of capturing her subjects at exactly the right time - between frowns or just at the moment that their smile lights up their entire face. For many years, she took photos of my family. The last big photoshoot she did for us was just after my step-dad was diagnosed with Alzeimers. I wanted photos that showed him as we want to remember him. Katrina took his portrait in front of his neatly organized yard tools. It was PERFECT! In a 2 hour event, we got enough photos to fill a small book. Most of the photos were candid and all of them were delightful! I wish she still lived in Houston!
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.
It was a joy working with Rachel, she is passionate about her work, with a professional eye for detail. I am delighted with my photographs, which she graciously provided in a multitude of formats for my convenience. I highly recommend Rachel for any portrait photography needs you may have.
Choosing to hire By George Photography to capture my daughters Senior Portraits was by far, the best decision I ever could have made. He was very professional and candid, also executing my vision that I had for a particular shot better than I ever could have imagined. Lastly, I would like to note that this man went above and beyond for us. I waited until the last minute to have my daughters pictures taken and still had not ordered her graduation announcements. George took my daughters photos on Friday evening, edited 3 photos of our choosing by Saturday afternoon so that I could put them into the design for the announcements, while gearing up to go out of town on Sunday. I will forever appreciate him for this. Every opportunity I come across I will recommend By George Photography. I cannot wait for the weather to clear up so I can have him complete a portrait session for my husband and I.......
JENNIFER IS SO AMAZING. Seriously, she understands what's happening at every angle. She plans and executes. She is perfect!!!! Never loved a photographer so much!
Phil is an awesome photographer and he creates a really professional, fun shoot environment. As a model, I interact with a lot of different photographers and working with Phil has been one of my best experiences. He makes the work fun, problem solves with ease, and is always responsive to questions and requests.
Hired Alex to photograph our Airbnb suite. He arrived on time and was great to work with. He asked what I wanted to highlight and feature, and did a beautiful job on the photos. Photos were prepared and available within a week via drop box or portable drive, very convenient.
John is by far one of the best photographers we've worked with—we hire photographers in 12 cities for corporate events we produce. He arrived early, took all the shots on our shot list, and is just a friendly guy. His work is just as great—the composition, color, and style. It's not easy to find a corporate photographer whose work and professionalism are of high-quality. Duffernutter Photography is our top pick for Seattle photography—and it should be yours too!
What a terrific time! The photos Andrew took were full of life and fun, not just dull portraits. What he does with his camera and editing is really magical!
Photos taken at local part. Catherine is an excellent photographer. The work she did is wonderful. She is a pleasure to work with.
S2 Photography has been nothing short attentive and kind! We received our photo gallery selection within 48 hours, which is absolutely impressive compared to our years of experience in the past. We feel that we've embarked on a dependable business relationship having found S2 Photography, not to mention a friend!
Pros: Christine was quick to respond and easy to book with via Thumbtack and email. She made our baby feel comfortable and was easy to have in our home for family portraits. She brought all of the equipment (including items for solo baby shots) and was extremely patient with our son who was very wiggly. At the end of the day, we got the shots we wanted and are very happy with the quality. Cons: The details matter, and little things like a shirt being caught up in jeans so it was bunched weren’t corrected/adjusted by her during the shoot. This meant a few of the family portraits looked unfinished/rough (though there were plenty to choose from so we simply selected others to keep). Know going in that you won’t get a lot of direction so check that things are the way you want during the session.
Vuong was absolutely amazing! She was willing to work around the chaotic Seattle weather and we ended up finding a time between rain showers. She had a ton of great ideas for poses so no two photos looked the same. The variety of locations at the arboretum made for a great shoot! Overall I would highly recommend using Vuong for portraits!
He was easy going and the quality of the pictures were amazing! He had alot of patience for the big group we had for prom. And I had so much fun. I truly recommend him becuase he is a great photographer :)

Lisa, the owner, was wonderful and made us feel so comfortable. We are pregnant with our first child so we really wanted to get pictures of this special time in our lives.
