Greg was awesome, he had a lot of great ideas on the wedding pictures and I can't wait to see the pictures he got from our very informal wedding! We had a Hawaiian tropical theme. Greg is a great guy to work with he takes the time to listen to what you want and is very laid back, so he helped to put our minds at ease. We had checked out quite a few photographer's and after our first meeting with Greg with both decided to go with him, It felt nice getting someone with his amount of experience and excellence for the same price as a lot of those out there with only a year or two of experience. We would definitely recommend him to anyone!

Anna is just wonderful. We had a phenomenal experience with our engagement pictures with her! She's flexible, professional, patient, attentive, and just overall a genuinely kind person. We were nervous going into our engagement shoot because we'd never done anything like that before. She put us at ease and before we knew it, it was like we were just strolling around town enjoying ourselves and a photographer just so happened to be along capturing the day. Planning a wedding can be so hectic, but looking at our engagement pictures reminds us of WHY we're doing all this. Our love and joy just radiates in our pictures -- I can't stop looking at them and I'm struggling to choose a favorite! We are proud to say Anna will be along for the ride as our photographer on our wedding day and would highly recommend her. Can't wait to see those pictures when the time comes. Thanks so much, Anna!

We are so happy and blessed to have come across Anna while searching for a wedding photographer. Once I saw samples of her work, the choice was obvious. Her photos are breathtaking, romantic, and beautiful! She was so much fun to work with! Gave great direction as we took photos and it was very cool to witness her creative wheels turning for potential photo ops surrounding us! The sneak peek photos we received that same night of our wedding were exquisite and I am so excited to see the rest! I would strongly recommend Anna to anyone looking for a photographer to capture their special moments as she will surpass your expectations and leave you overjoyed with the results!!!

Anna was our wedding photographer, and was kind, helpful, and really nice to work with. Her easy demeanor was great on a stressful day such as a wedding tends to be. We got our photos back in about three weeks, and they look gorgeous! Thanks, Anna!

Darren and Quentin photographed our wedding on Memorial Day weekend, and I couldn't be happier with their service. Working with Darren in the months leading up to the event was great. He was easy to get in touch with, worked with our strict budget, and answered all of my questions quickly and thoroughly. The day of the wedding was seamless. The guys had fun with our guests, and paid close attention to the feel of the party to get the perfect action shots. By the time we got home from our honeymoon, our pictures were organized in an easy to use website for public viewing. These guys are awesome- I would recommend them to everyone.

Loved working with these guys! Darren always responded to my emails in a decent amount of time, no matter how ridiculous my question was. Darren showed up and took great pictures of our wedding. The pictures look amazing and not to posed. Love the candid, real feel of the pictures. Between the 2 photographers I felt a bit like a star. They were always there, yet you didn't notice them either. It was perfect! Thank you to both of you for doing such an amazing job!

We asked Darren to photograph our wedding on a weekend day in June. He did an incredible job capturing the day. He was on time, set up and taking pictures right away so he did not miss anything. He was open to all of our ideas and even had some great suggestions of his own. He had the photos uploaded and ready for us in a week! We couldn't believe it. We definitely made the right choice picking Darren and couldn't be happier.

Paula is an artist in the truest sense of the word. She has art shows often, where photos of her travels and vivid life jump off the walls. She is not like every other wedding/event photographer out there. She doesn’t need to do this for the money (she is a successful researcher); she truly does it for the art. Of course, if you seek a traditional type of photo, she is very skilled at those too, but Paula shines when it comes to photos that capture a moment, feeling or beauty. My favorite work from her is often a spontaneous moment captured expertly by her lens when she attends events even just for her personal use/life. It’s not just her technical skills that wow, but her eye and spontaneity. Her expert ability to frame and compose pictures so quickly makes her a great option for families or for events. She’s been to my wedding and taken photos of very unwilling subjects (me and my husband) and her gentle prodding produced the best photos of me and my husband ever. She also moves quickly and is able to converse with you while taking photos so that the photos look natural and unstilted, which I prefer. She also works well with poses – such as my maternity photos – she brought some great scarves and had great ideas about poses. Paula’s pleasantness and patience also contributes to her beautiful images. Everyone relaxes before such a pleasant, fun photographer. Paula is an artist, so if you want incredible images, she is the person for you!

If I had to sum up my experience with Paula I would say: "she is the best!" I have worked with Paula as a photographer on various occasions. She has captured the biggest events in my life, engagement pictures, wedding pictures and "just because" photo shoots. I am so lucky to have had her photograph these events, as she captured them to perfection. In addition to creating amazing work, she is also a lot of fun to work with. She makes you feel very comfortable with yourself and with the camera, which I think is the secret to great photography. Paula is all about the art of pictures and capturing your essence. Thank you Paula for such beautiful memories!

Paula just did my parents wedding yesterday. She was amazing. My parents are both a bit camera shy and we're not excited to have pictures of them taken, but within a couple minutes they were comfortable with Paula. At the end of the photo session they turned to me and said thank you for hiring her she was great and so fun to work with. She even sent us some sample pictures a couple hours after the wedding and they are beautiful. I think if we have anymore special occasions we will be hiring Paula.

Amy exceeded all expectations and then some! She took headshots for over 50 members of our campus business organization. Throughout the entire process, she was a true professional willing to go the extra mile in order to provide fantastic service and an exceptional finished product. Regardless of your photography needs, I highly recommend using Amy as your photographer due to her extraordinary talent, kindness, and commitment to the project.

I managed to stumble upon Teresa on Thumbtack, and I'm so glad I did! She beautifully captured our small wedding ceremony, and she was just so pleasant to work with, too. We hadn't actually met prior to the day of, and my wife spoke to her only once on the phone, but I remember saying to my wife that I REALLY liked our photographer, and she excitedly said she did as well. Teresa got our photos to us in under a week, and the number of photos we were allowed to choose was ridiculously fair, given our semi-unique situation of not being the normal full-scale wedding, having her for a shorter duration, etc. 10/10, A+, however you want to put it, Family Tree did a fantastic job for us. Thank you!

We hired Teresa to take photos of our daughter as she turned 2 years old. Teresa was extremely kind and patient with our daughter and really did a great job making our family feel comfortable during our shoot. All of the pictures turned out great and really captured our daughters fun and unique personality. We continue to receive compliments on the photos Teresa has taken. They are priceless and will be forever charished. Teresa did an excellent job and we look forward to having her be our family photographer.

Teresa is fantastic to work with. She is a great listener and makes sure to get the photos you really want. Her artistic, angled style were just what my husband and I were looking for for our engagement and wedding photos. Teresa's laid back yet professional personality made it fun and natural to work with her. We plan on using Family Tree Photography again in the future for family photos.

I hired JL Photography for a family photo session; Lindsey was our photographer and she was amazing! It was a fall session, but it was super cold that day. Lindsey was fantastic at moving us between poses and locations. It was super helpful to be given some direction, as I like to trust the professional and let them lead the shoot. However, Lindsey had this effortless way of getting us to do what she wanted, while we were being ourselves, smiling and having fun as a family, which is what her photos captured. The session itself went smoothly and quickly, which was perfect because it was so cold. Lindsey is really great with kids; she had mine smiling and laughing, which was great for the photos, but she also knew how to talk to them to get them to cooperate! Like I said, Lindsey guided us through the shoot, but the photos came back looking so natural and really captured each member of my family's personality, as well as our love and playfulness for one another. I was thrilled with her work and would highly recommend her to others.

Our DJ, Tim was awesome! He worked well with not only my husband and I but with our photographer and guests. He made sure to play my requested songs while I was on the dance floor, which was pretty hard because I kept getting pulled in a million directions. He also made sure to annouce that those songs were my favs which made people come out and dance with me. The high energy arobics were super fun...people got involved! And, it was super funny that the winners of the musical chair portion became members of the Village People :) We would also like to send thanks for them working with us on the dollar dance request we had. We wanted to make a game out of it...$1 per dance, but same sex dances were $5 and whoever earned the most money won the TV remote for life! By making a game out of it we made more money then we thought we would...and I totally won the remote for life! But, I haven't really won it...my husband still takes it! haha! Our DJ, Tim, was very personable...easy to talk too and some of the ladies asked about him too...haha! By the end of the night he asked if we wanted him to continue playing...at first I said no, but then my husband wanted more music. Without even questioning it, he kept right on playing. All in all, I would definitely recommend High Energy DJs to other people. We will come knocking at their door again too if we have another event that requires a dj. Scott Quimby and Tim were so easy to work with and we couldn't have asked for our event to turn out better than it was. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!!

High Energy DJs were at our wedding this past Saturday and did an awesome job! Scott helped coordinate and manage everything and had several calls with us before the wedding day to make sure everything was to our liking and planned out accordingly. Craig, our DJ, was fantastic. He took all of our song choices and from there curated a great lineup of background music for cocktail hour and dinner that suited the vibe we were going for. He was super friendly and seemed so happy to be there and be a part of our day. Everything was timed and executed perfectly. He has a perfect voice for a DJ, too, and made announcements and introductions exactly as we instructed and filled in as needed. During the dancing, he took our playlist and curated a full night of dance music out of that, too - the night ended on a super high energy note with everyone on the dancefloor jumping and dancing and having an awesome. It made the day! As a gay couple, everyone could not have been more accommodating, too! 10/10 would recommend Craig and High Energy DJs.

High Energy DJ'd at our wedding this weekend and our experience was amazing! Our DJ, Craig, was on time, filled all of our requests to a T and was positive and fun the entire night. Our guests were on the dance floor the whole evening! We had some unusual music requests and High Energy filled each and every one without a flaw. It was 90 degrees outside and since our wedding was outdoors and our reception was not air conditioned, it was very hard to stay cool. But it didn't bother our DJ, Craig - he was super positive and friendly with no complaints the entire evening. High Energy is the most cost effective DJ service that I found when I was searching for music entertainment for our big day. I cannot say enough positive things...if you are searching for a DJ for any event, you cannot go wrong with High Energy! Thank you for making our day great!

Tierney took my bridal shower and wedding photos and I could not have been happier! She was there all day and caught so many great moments that I did not even realize happened! We worked together in advance to make sure she knew moments/photos I wanted to catch also. She went to scope out the venue in advance as well so she knew what photos would be great to take where and the layout as well as lighting of the venue. She put so much extra work into making sure I was happy with the photos I got and everyone who saw my wedding photos commented on how fantastic our photographer and the photos were.

Unique...breathtaking...exquisite. These are all words that come to mind when I think of the ART and beauty David Wilson creates. Photography is David's passion, and you can tell just by looking at his portfolio. I began shooting with David roughly two years ago. What I love about working with David is that he has ideas in mind that he wants to capture, but during our collaborations, both of our creative minds come together and really makes great pieces of art. Something that I believe really makes David stand out is how he works with light. Whether is overexposure or lack of light, you can really see in his photographs what he is trying to accomplish with the light he is given. I would HIGHLY recommend working with David Wilson. He is down to earth, creative, and is one of the best in the business. Karlee Nimmer

Angela first took boudoir photos for me and although I was nervous and self-conscious she made me feel very comfortable and safe during the session. Also, after reviewing the pictures I felt so sexy! They turned out awesome. She was so great that we were lucky enough to have her take out wedding photos as well. She was so patient with our absurd family photos that I didn't have to worry about her at all. I will definitely be hiring her again and again!

This young woman has an "eye" and talent to make your family look even better than they normally do! She has done wedding, graduation and holiday photos for us. She has a knack for capturing the personality of who's being photographed -- and gently pushes those being photographed to bring props to not only illustrate that, but build a comfort level. Plus she has the skills (photography & computer) to take the photo to the next level of quality. From artistic "stills" at a wedding to group shots - her work will have you proud and smiling.

Tosha has the experience and it shows in the way she captures my family. She has the ability to make a photo shoot so fun because she loves what she does. Each person is an individual and she emphasizes what makes them unique. She has followed many couples on their dating, engagement, wedding, and baby journeys. I would highly suggest you ask her to record your special days or make a day special by enjoying a shoot with your family.

About

My experience with photography begins with a six-year-old boy supporting up lights for his dad at a party. When we arrived home, my dad gives me his state-of-the-art Hasselblad camera's clastic back and teaches me to wind back the film. For me, it was all enjoyable, but what I did not realize is that with my father's directions, he was gearing me up for my own future profession. I studied in a photography school at the age of 16, at Focus in Sao Paulo, Brazil. And now, thousands of events, weddings, aerial photos, studio shots, and family photos later, this is all what I do and what I love. Ueda (pronounced "way-da") is the name my father preferred to be his when he began his business as a Japanese man in Brazil more than 50 years ago, and I'm carrying it on now as a Brazilian man in the United States. My style is a mix of photojournalism and illustrative. I love the art of photography, which lies in catching the perfect time when something delightful is expressed: an emotion, a relationship, or an idea. I'm an active member of the Professional Photographers of America and WPJA (Wedding Photojournalist Association). Take a look at my Facebook page as I often post my most recent photos there!

I am a lifestyle photographer. I'm able to do weddings, engagements, newborns, senior portraits, family photos, etc. There are a lot of photographers out there, and we each have a different way of seeing the world through our lens, and that goes for editing as well. When you're shopping for a photographer, you're really just seeing if their shooting/editing style is what you like. I hope you like what you see and will consider me to shoot your next big event.
