  • I had a great time sorting through the proofs - for once I didn't feel like I had to choose the "least terrible" - I had many, many excellent choices. I look natural but fun & energetic. Thank you Provider name locked. & Provider name locked. for capturing such a great "me".

  • I am a photographer myself and have high standards.  I feel that Provider name locked. did a great job with our wedding and our engagement photos. I highly recommend them.
    I thought that the photos were composed and exposed with creativity and care.  Black and whites were crisp and lively.  The color shots were consistent and very natural. Their style is contemporary, yet classical.  They Provider name locked. ’t use any hack tricks, and none of our photos were overcooked with weird filters.  This means the quality will last the test of time. 
    I thought that they handled us very well as far as the lining up what we needed.  There was no pressure to pick one particular package or another. They just listened to what we wanted and did it. 
    They made all of the sessions fun.  They captured all the right moments, and all of our friends and family members. Both sides of the family and both sets of parents were happy with the work.  Both sets of images also have received lots of positive reviews from family and friends online.
    Before going with any photographer, it’s so important to know their training and see several of their portfolios. Provider name locked. is a trained photographer, and this is his full-time job, this is no amateur hobby operation.  Knowing this and looking through his portfolios made me feel confident about what the images we’d have. I feel good about this investment in great photography that will be enjoyed by our families for decades.

  • These guys have been around forever and they used to provide adorable school pictures. But last year and this year we have seen a drop in the quality of the portraits. The lighting is flat losing all the facial contours that make your kids look like, well, your kids. There is a complete lack of attention to the appearance of the student in general. Photographers know they are responsible for the end product. I have been in photography industry for nearly two decades now and I am appalled at the quality of images from this provider. My child's hair is all over the place, her poses have her sitting down, hands in pockets and horrible forced smiles. (From a company whose website boasts kid friendly professionals that keep kids smiling) They are shooting digital images so it's no skin off their nose to shoot several shots if needed (can really be done quickly) to get it right (and I might add that this process is less cost intensive than film photography). Granted they had to invest in a digital infrastructure for their business but one can't help but think that if they were still shooting film they might be more careful about the end product.

    Teachers and teacher's assistants were present when the pictures were taken but I don't expect my child's teacher to have the knowledge or TIME to make sure each child is properly posed , lighted and presentable - which is the PROPER expectation one should have of a professional photographer.

    Overall, we were so disappointed in the pictures both for the year and graduation, that we didn't order the yearly ones and though truly disappointed in the graduation portrait we ordered anyway - they have you over a barrel really, despite actual sadness over the quality.

    I would urge schools and parents everywhere to seek out another portraiture provider - one that actually understands that this isn't some manufacturing process and that quality images produced in a timely manner with a convenient and less expensive medium is a perfectly normal expectation that they should do much better job of meeting.
