When I started looking for a photographer, I wanted to make sure that I had someone who I trusted. It was very important for me to not worry on my wedding day. All I have to say is WOW!! He was great! He knew exactly how to capture perfect images and sees shots that are perfection. From the pictures to the actual wedding photo book, I have been impressed every step of the way. HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Everyone complimented us on our pictures and shared how great he was. If you are looking for a professional who you can trust, who captures artistic shots, and is someone who will be patient and captures not only the big moments, but the little moments, Kenny is your man!
