I worked with Scott as a second photographer at a wedding. Scott is a true professional and pays attention to the details that you care about. I would recommend him to anyone looking for photography or video production needs.

We haven't received the digital photos, yet, as the wedding was just last week, Oct. 7, 2017; however, I didn't want to wait for them before submitting a review of our experience using James R Byrd. I can always add to this review and share some of his pictures at a later date. Obviously, I don't have any pictures to share regarding the quality of his work, but there are other reviewers on this site who have submitted lovely examples of his work. What I do want to share with other potential clients is that I chose James over several other bidders because of the wonderful reviews he already had and because I was particularly interested in his talent for taking pictures in a natural setting. Our daughter's wedding was an outdoor affair, a backyard wedding on their property next to a pond! Taking outdoor pics requires a lot of extra patience and unique camera skill due to the unpredictability of the weather and the uncontrolled light availability, which greatly affect a photographer's ability to capture the best shots. Since James was clearly skilled in how to use his equipment and his experience to adapt to natural settings, I felt that he was a good choice for us. James also was very easy to reach - whether it was through this website, email, or even on his cell phone! He was immediately responsive to our initial questions and concerns, and I will admit that another perk was that his fee fit well within our limited budget. His fee included 8 hours of his time, compared to other photographers who charged extra after the first 4 hours. While his current services do not include some specific amenities often available from other professional photograhy companies (various packages that include actual prints, canvas mounted pictures, or pre-made wedding photo albums from which to choose), we felt that what he does provide fit our needs the best. In this more modern world of higher-tech, we really were more interested in having digital copies of the entire wedding day, along with a selection of digital copies that he "gives a professional touch up" to provide us with plenty of choices for us to use to create our own albums and prints. This allows the photographer to offer a lower fee option to the client who has a limited budget. During our search, we noticed that other photographer's who did offer certain "basic" packages that included just the digital disk copies, which also included the extra collection of the photographer's choice of special touched up photos, like James's, were still higher in their prices because they doubled their fees after 4 hours. The fact that James was willing to be contracted for the entire 8 hours without raising his fee was a PLUS for us! Additionally, James uses preliminary time to "scope out" the scene in order to better plan his picture schedule, which may change depending upon the options available in a "back yard" setting. My daughter's wedding day started off with rain - it had rained for two days prior and didn't stop until about a couple hours before the ceremony. That caused James to have to be creative about many of the pre-wedding pics. Then, to everyone's delight, the gray clouds disappeared and the warm golden sun (who had been invited to the wedding) shone down upon us in full glory, allowing the natural beauty of the early autumn colors to pop and the serene pond to sparkle! Of course. While this brought smiles to everyone's faces, it did mean that James had to suddenly work with the many reflections of the sun's glare! Still, he quickly improvised and moved us around a bit. I can't wait to see the pictures that James took, as he really had to be so very creative and flexible with the elements! Because I had already seen examples of his work online, I feel optimistic that he was able to capture some good pictures within the changing natural scene. I should also add that James is a very friendly young man who is sensitive to the various goings on of the wedding festivities and is able to adjust his timing for various pictures appropriately. We wanted him to feel very comfortable as we would want any guest to feel, and we made sure that he took some breaks and had time to make himself a plate of food from the buffet, etc. Still, he was mainly focused upon using his time to grab the best pictures that were possible in the craziness of the venue - people all over the yard, children under-foot, some people visiting at the tables set up under various tents, the night-time dancing, etc. I think that anyone who is doing a DIY wedding, especially an outdoor one and/or one within a controlled budget, ought to consider James R Byrd as their photographer bevause he is very flexible, considerate, easy to work with, and very focused upon his craft. I promise to revisit my review and upload some pictures! Can't wait!! Sincerely, Jane Trotter

Mandy was great to work with! She was very accommadating to our needs and always responded in a timely manner. I would highly reccommend her to anyone in need of a good photographer. The photos she took were for business cards and I requested the photos be a certain way and that is exactly the way she did them. She went out of her way and brought the cd with the photos right to the dealership, and this was greatly appreciated! There is nothing Mandy needs to improve as she has already exceeded our expectations! Awesome Job Mandy! Thank you!

In all the photography I have ever seen, Jen's work is by far the most brilliant, elegant, loveliest, intricate piece of art I have ever seen a photographer do. I feel like Im there when she takes her photos. It feels so vivid. She is very patient, kind, hard-working and definitely original. My husband and I had our photos taken by her and everything I had in mind as far as the pictures go, Jen blew me away with her ideas. Not much people can blow me away like that. There's nothing I can say for her to improve because of the impact her photos has on me. I hope more people can experience her art and somehow get touched by it in someway. Her art work is moving.

My husband and I were happier than we thought we could be - from my son's 1st professional pics, to our engagement photos, to our 2nd son's newborn photos. Bobbi never disappoints and always exceeds our expectations! Her amazing ability to capture the most precious moments always brings us to tears. I highly recommend her for any type of photo shoot. She always surprises us with thoughtful little gifts and is truly exceptional at what she does! She IS the best!

Susanna is phenomenal! I commissioned her to do an all afternoon shoot for my business marketing materials. She showed up prepared and enthusiastic about the job. She's so fun and relaxed which helps you to feel more comfortable in your photos. I really appreciated her direction so I could achieve the results I was looking for in my photos. She even offered her own creative ideas that turned out great! Since the shoot, she's gone above and beyond by following up and sharing other ideas she thought would work well for my business. I will certainly recommend Susanna to others.

She was absolutely amazing! She was so patient with my children and didn't try and rush through the session. Her two hour sessions are great and I was able to get all the poses I wanted. I also received lots and lots of images. Other photographers that I've been to in the past rush through the session and I don't get the photos I want plus I only receive about 20 of them. I would recommend Shawna to everyone! For $80 you're getting a great deal with amazing photos! You will not be disappointed.

About

Welcome, so glad you found us! We are a full-time husband-and-wife photography team from Medford, Wisconsin who are passionate about what we do and the life we have been given with our three children. We are currently finishing up our degrees and homeschooling our two oldest children. We feel so blessed to be able to meet amazing people from all over the Wisconsin, the mid-west, and beyond. Our photographic style reflects our clients' needs and interests and also our education and personal inspiration. We focus on both traditional and modern photographic techniques, which are rooted in our 35mm film beginnings and our understanding of digital imagery and design. We also create environments and actions, which give photographs the whimsical touch you can't quite explain. Years of experience with software and photographic equipment, paired with an eye for all things beautiful, create a unique and personal touch to our digital images. Portrait sessions are intended to express you! We enjoy coming to you, but you can always come to us! Our senior portraits are very fashion forward and nontraditional, focusing on your individuality and not cookie-cutter backdrops. Due to the personal nature of our portrait sessions and the commitment we have to photographic excellence, session bookings are limited. Weddings are our passion, and nothing brings us more joy than being able to capture two people in love. The raw emotion that comes when two people say "I Do" can't be replicated. At the end of the day, your photographs will be able to retell your story for years to come. Along with our love for documenting people's stories is our love for the Lord Jesus Christ. We are truly blessed by all those we meet, and our prayers are that the photographs we take will be a reminder of your love for one another. Enjoy our website; visit our blog for recent and updated shoots! Please contact us if you would like to schedule a consultation or book a session of wedding. We look forward to hearing from you.

About

I love photographing nature, and all things outdoors. Do you have a place in central Wisconsin that you frequent, or a view or a possession that has special meaning to you (even including single plantings in your own backyard, pets, boats, vehicles, barns, etc.) that you would like to be photographed? Are you wishing you had photographs of something that is meaningful to you, but that have also been made to complement the color scheme in one of your rooms? Do you want to enjoy an image in the form of a picture, or other photo gift to send to someone else? For a very reasonable price, I will photograph it for/with you to your complete satisfaction (There is no "sitting fee;" therefore, if you decide that you do not want any images, you have not spent any money).
