TOM ELLIS PHOTOGRAPHY REVIEWS
I cannot say enough good things about Tom and his senior pictures. I reached out to him and needed pictures fairly quickly. He was responsive and helpful in finding a day and time when the weather would be good. He connected really well with my senior, who was reluctant to having pictures taken, and as a result, was able to get a lot of really great shots of her. His demeanor was perfect for her and while they were chatting, he was always looking for good light for another picture. The entire experience was easy and professional. I would recommend him anytime.
Tom did an exceptional job of meeting us where we were as we struggled to make our wedding happen in the midst of the pandemic. He pivoted his whole business model to create options for people in our circumstance and it would not have worked out otherwise. All communication and follow-up have been exceptional. On the day of our ceremony, he was extremely flexible and creative in how he used the available spaces to create beautiful posed photographs which we and our families will treasure. His narrative photos of our outdoor - pandemic-conscious picnic are treasures as well. He was safe, we were safe, and no one got sick at our wedding. Tom is the best.
We hired Tom to take our engagement photos and he did a great job. After we arrived at Snoqualmie Falls, Tom met up with me and told me the best spot to do the proposal at. He captured the moment perfectly for us. After that, we went to a few other locations around the Falls to get some more great pictures. He even took us to another off-site location to shoot some more photos. Tom was very professional and fun to work with. We were extremely pleased with the quality of our photos. He did a fantastic job and I would recommend him to anyone else who is going to get engagement photos done.

MARIAH GENTRY PHOTOGRAPHY REVIEWS
Mariah is an incredible photographer and person! Right from when we met, I loved her enthusiasm and positivity, and I knew I would want her with me through my whole wedding day. When the pandemic happened and we had to postpone our wedding, Mariah was incredibly kind and flexible as our plans had to constantly change. On our wedding day, right from the moment she arrived, Mariah (and Brennen, her husband and second shooter!) leapt into action and helped the morning feel more collected and organized, a big relief when I was feeling frazzled and couldn't leave the makeup chair! They made great use of the getting ready time, and Mariah even jumped in to help my bridesmaids steam my dress. (She fixed my bustle for me later on too, she is an actual angel) Mariah was fantastic at keeping all the groups and shots organized for our photos, gave really useful and easy-to-follow directions to help everyone look their best, and made the whole experience so positive and easy. I had been nervous about being photographed so much and I found myself having so much fun! I had friends and family approaching me all day telling me how impressed they were with Mariah and Brennen, how easy to work with they were and how they could not wait to see the photos. Despite taking thousands of photos, Mariah got edited photos to us exactly two weeks after our wedding! We have spent days going over them, admiring them and re-living our wedding day all over again. We will cherish these forever, and cannot be more grateful to Mariah and Brennen for being such a great part of our wedding day.
Mariah is absolutely amazing! She was so kind and helpful in the process leading up to the wedding. We had planned to do outdoor photos with our wedding party and immediate families, but it started pouring down rain the night before, and Mariah not only put up with my anxious texts but helped come up with a game plan! Day-of, she surprised us by bring Brennen along as an extra shooter and they both brought the best energy. I could not be happier with how the day went or with my photos from Mariah!
So talented! I just want to start off by saying thank you mariah! Working with her was such a great experience, she was kind, reliable and helpful. She listened to what i wanted. It was my husband’s and i first experience working with a photographer and all i can say is that mariah has set the bar high. She’s just a great person to be around and capture such a special day for us. if you are reading this comment i say do it! You will not regret it. these pictures will last a lifetime and i’m forever grateful

JENNY GG PHOTOGRAPHY REVIEWS
Jenny...was awesome. That's an empty term these days. Costco gas is "awesome." Bottomless fries are "awesome." Seinfeld reruns are "awesome." No shade here -- nothing wrong with any of those things -- but that's not the meaning I'm trying to invoke. Jenny wasn't "awesome." Jenny...was *awesome.* She was professional: punctual and capable, organized and efficient, commanding when she needed to herd wayward in-laws and subtle when she needed to melt into the background. She was experienced: brimming with knowledge and advice when asked, but respectful of our goals and quick to pivot to facilitate our vision. She was artistic: keen-eyed and creative, nerding out over the possibilities afforded by every corner of our venue, a wizard with pixels and colors and light. But more than that, Jenny was warm. My wife and I would have been satisfied if she'd just been a killer photographer, and we'd walked away with dynamite pictures. Jenny? Jenny gave us SO much more. She was patient. She was funny. And she was exactly what we needed: her easy rapport with even the most oddball and camera-shy among our motley crew worked absolute wonders to make the smiles real and the day what it was. The stress just evaporated around her. I'm the third among my siblings to get married, and the second lucky enough to work with Jenny as a photographer. So I've seen her in action twice: once when I was an officiant, and once when I was the groom. And both times, she completely blew me away. So, with confidence, I say: Jenny is awesome.
Jenny GG has been an absolute joy to work with from day one. From our engagement photo shoots up to the day of our wedding we have felt seen, respected, and downright giddy to have her with us. Jenny captures the most beautiful and sentimental moments in photographs that will last a lifetime. Our friends and families are still stunned by our engagement photos. Most importantly, we both felt comfortable every step of the way – and it shows! Jenny knows how to position couples of all different shapes and sizes, and rolls with whoever wants to be the “big spoon.” During our introductions she said her pronouns and checked back with us over a year later for potential updated pronouns. Jenny is inclusive, energetic, and incredibly positive. We had a blast with her every moment and would highly recommend her as a professional photographer.
Jenny GG was an incredible photographer for both our engagement and wedding. She captures light immaculately, always knows the best angle, and brings out the special something in your big day. Jenny goes the extra mile. She came down to Bend for our wedding and - despite never having come to the venue before - managed to find all the perfect shots. We happily recommend Jenny for any occasion!
