Reginald was friendly, professional, and very easy to work with. My entire family loved the experience.

He arrived early to set up and figure out the best shots so that we could get started as soon as my family got there. I would highly recommend using him for your photo shoot!-CarisaView Photographer profile
Stefan is the best photographer! My photos came out amazing!

He listened to exactly what I was wanting, helped with direction and it was just all around perfect.-JanetteView Photographer profile
Ashley was so fun to work with! We had a big family to shoot (including wild dogs and toddlers), and she captured us perfectly.

We also had a bit of a "theme" we wanted to achieve, and she was very easy to work with to help achieve our goal. Would highly recommend! Thanks, Ashley :)-CarolineView Photographer profile
Our experience was great. I highly recommend Slava. I feel he went above and beyond to make our photoshoot a wonderful experience, with a lot of great pictures.-KristaView Photographer profile
Stefan is amazing. He made sure each person was positioned in the best light and within the group (no floating heads).

The event and pictures turned out fabulous. In our group of 16 people, even 98 year old Grandma and 3 year old nephew enjoyed themselves.

We’ll definitely be back for more photo shoots with Stefan.-StrambladView Photographer profile
We enjoyed every single bit of our photoshoot with Stefan. He did a great job and we love the outcome! Thank you, Stefan, for making us feel comfortable around you and behind the lens.-AliciaView Photographer profile
Nothing short of amazing! Loved the location, loved the pics, and loved Stefan! Thank you, thank you, thank you! We are customers for life!-JamieView Photographer profile
We had a great sunset beach photo shoot with Alex in Galveston.

We have a special needs son who can be difficult to photograph, and Alex was incredibly patient and kind with us, offering suggestions on poses to get the best pictures.

We’re so happy we decided to book him for our shoot.-KariView Photographer profile
Reggie was the best. He was so patient. We had a large group and he did everything possible to get just what we wanted.

10/10. Thank you, Reggie!-DawnView Photographer profile
Ashley was such a great photographer. She was patient with our little girl, full of ideas, and considerate of all of our wishes.

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Ashley! We are very pleased with her and her work!-MeaghanView Photographer profile
