This brand has life because of your photography.
– Katie Mae Ward, Senior Account Manager. STRADA
You were able to capture a great assortment of seriousness and lightheartedness, which speaks directly to who they are and what we hope to represent through their new branding and website. Other law firms in their space (and beyond) are going to be envious when they see this photography.
– Taylor Wenner, Art Director. BRIAN COMMUNICATIONS
Your photography went such a long way in telling this very sensitive, compassionate story about what it means to be a social worker, and particularly what it means to be a social worker who is educated at Bryn Mawr College's Graduate School of Social Work and Social Research. It was a pleasure for Kismet Communications to partner with you.
– Rachel Beanland, APR, Principal. KISMET COMMUNICATIONS
I want to thank you for going the extra mile to capture the small town feel. Most photographers would have blown it off when circumstances did not present themselves.
