Kenny was the best. With his awesome personality he made us feel really comfortable - even my camera-shy fiance/husband didn't put on his usual constipated face - and our engagement pictures came out great (still waiting on our wedding ones!). If you value quality photography, I wouldn't go with anyone else but Kenny. He has great artistic sense and uses all the lighting, angles, surrounding objects to create beautiful pictures. He is also talented at indoor/night time so that every bit of your wedding will be captured perfectly from beginning to end. Highly recommend!

Kenny is nothing short of amazing. His packages are better than any studio we visited and his work speaks for itself. But working with him in and of itself is what makes the whole experience great. He does a great job making you feel comfortable while taking pictures, is very creative and willing to listen to suggestions and personal preference. He was extremely flexible and was willing to tinker with his packages a little bit to accommodate our specific needs. On the day of the wedding, he is all about the couple, he was with us for over 12 hours on our wedding day! Our bridal party enjoyed him and we feel like we honestly made a new friend. We are excited to see how our pictures turn out.

Thanks Kenny!

It only took a glance of Kenny's website for me to fall in love with his pictures and style. His pictures showed experience with outstanding quality that convinced me the pictures for my wedding will be exceptional as well. Photography was the most important part of my wedding when I started planning because I knew that the moments on my wedding day would only happen once. I wanted a photographer who understood and cared about those moments as much as I did. Kenny was very professional and flexible, setting up personal meetings to get to know specifically what I wanted for my wedding pictures. He did an amazing job capturing the precious memories of my wedding. Choosing Kenny was definitely one of the best decisions I made for my wedding. I highly recommend Kenny as your wedding photographer because like me, you will be immensely happy with your priceless wedding pictures.

Kenny is just awesomeness in one complete package. I have had people view my photos and say that they are the best that they have seen in a long time. He was easy to work with and did exactly what we asked of him and more. I have heard many photographers request that their clients not tell them what they want them to take photos of because they need full artistic ability, but this air did not come from Kenny at all. He captured the photos we wanted and tons more that we didn't think to ask for. The amazing thing about him is the fact that he basically disappeared into the crowd during the ceremony and the bulk of the reception. I never realized that the majority of the photos that he took came from him! Our engagement photos were excellent too, and from looking at all of the blogs on his site, I am sure that the other couples were just as pleased as us. We are now looking forward to our maternity/paternity (LOL) photos with him later this summer.
