"I contacted
late in the year to take family portraits. I did not know if I would be able to find a photographer to do this work last minute" so close to Christmas, but there were so many travel complications I could not reserve a photo shoot earlier. . Part of my family was coming from overseas;and the others were coming from long distance away in USA (2 day trip). All was crazy on timing, weather delays, etc. in the end there were time and location changes.
was understanding, flexible and willing to make changes necessary for a successful shoot. One half of family could not get to atlanta in time for sitting. My family members from overseas were struggling with jet lag and asleep about 1 hour before she arrived.
was very understanding, she was wonderful and showed a lot of patience with a cranky 2 year old jet legged toddler. In the end we were able to get some really nice family photos...A miracle given the circumstances. She was very affirming and professional. I had a hard time picking photos. I loved them all. I would recommend her, especially for families with young children.

"I was very anxious because I hate having my photo taken, but I wanted a professional-quality photo for my LinkedIn profile without spending a lot of time and money" to get one.
Silver, the photographer, made it SO easy. He took 20 photos in 15 minutes. Later he emailed the photos to me and I selected the one I liked. The photo was great but there was one piece of hair out of place that bothered me so
"fixed" it digitally at no extra charge. He even offered to reshoot if he couldn't fix it. But he did fix it and it turned out great and I thought the whole process was well worth the money. I would definitely go back to him.

For an award ceremony, I was informed with only a couple of weeks to go, that I needed a formal portrait of myself in my "work" environment. Since I worked in the space program, that would be a tricky thing to do. I found

on Angie's list, and called her, after reviewing the glowing reviews. After explaining the requirement, she thought for a while, then came up the following day with a terrific idea. She had done some shots of a shuttle launch, for which she owned the

, and we quickly agreed that a "green screen" portrait would fit nicely into a view of the shuttle launch in the background. Within a few days, she came out to the house, where she and
Grand Rapids Photographers Provider Name Locked
quickly set up, shot dozens of frames, then helped us locate the right one to tell the story. Three days later, she delivered a gorgeous and responsive product. The final product was impeccably shot, cropped, retouched, and delivered.ahead of our need. She communicates quickly and responsively, as well. Her prices were fair, her work done in less than 10 days, and the portrait is stunning. I cannot imagine how her work could be improved. ....it was top notch in every way.

Bill Dabovich twas our photographer. He was very professional and managed to get great pictures without interfering with the party. The guests really liked him. He was courteous and not at all invasive. He also managed to capture every guest. He asked me ahead of time where to focus and he listened to my requests & gave me exactly the kinds of pictures I was looking for. He captured several meaningful moments, for which I am really grateful. I was so happy with the pictures I got back. You can't recreate a party so finding the right photographer is so important. I am glad all the pictures from it came out so well!
At one point I asked Bill to get a family portrait, too. I have two small kids who were not in the mood to have their picture taken. It was awful trying to get them to smile and not run away! Bill was really patient & great with the kids, but I thought for sure we wouldn't get anything worthwhile from that quick spur of the moment photo shoot. During the melee, he said he got a good one but I didn't really believe him given the situation. I was shocked when I got the photos back and found one of the best family portraits we've ever taken. There were even a few other good ones in that mix, too.
I will definitely hire

My son, while very much an extrovert, is not good at posing for photos. It seems strange that he would be self-conscious, but he is. When

came to my parents' house,

asked me whether I wanted to stay in the room for the shoot or wait elsewhere. I took the gentle hint and waited downstairs. I'm glad I did. I heard lots of spirited conversation going on upstairs and could see lots of flashes going off. I think

could see that my son was a talker, and by engaging him in non-stop conversation she got him to

were our engagement photo photographers -- from the moment we found them on Thumbtack (a website where we received bids from at least 15 photographers) -- they were different.

was the only one of the photographers we contacted that was not focused on just the money she will make, but the idea and the quality of work her and

We had 3 themes in our photoshoot. We had a Huckleberry

Literally every photo was pristine! We would see both

roll around the floor or position themselves in an odd angle to get the best shot they could.

It was SOOOO much fun too.

Afterwards they got right to work and we were provided with photos and touch ups -- which by the way the touch ups were even more incredible as they added backgrounds and wonderful contrasts.

I am a person of quality -- and this team has that and so much more!

Trust me -- best of the best!

Once the photo book was purchased at the school (Columbus Charter School Whiteville NC) - I followed the instructions as per the instruction page provided by the school.
I logged into: torememberthis.com and enter my prepaid certificate code and began to create my photo book online. This was very special to me as I am going to visit the county I immigrated from to the USA.
From here the online procedure became more and more difficult to execute. The process of uploading the photo's and inserting them into the photo book took nearly six (6) hours. I then phoned
Grand Rapids Photographers Provider Name Locked
Opportuneties and explained the problems. I was told that this regularly happened and that my complaint would be forwarded to their technical department and would be resolved soon.
I logged in again into my account, four (4) hours later. Nothing was resolved and in fact the situation was worse.
After all of this, I now have to find a alternative method of making up a photo album to take with me.

It was not a good experience for us. We had some things get miscommunicatted. The pictures were not delivered in time. The service was also high priced.
