I did a pet shoot with Amanda from Ace Forty-Nine Photography and it was a great experience! She helped pick a gorgeous place to shoot and the right time of day and the photos came out amazingly. Far better than I had expected and so much easier than I had anticipated. Iโ€™ve never done a photo shoot (so I was a little nervous and didnโ€™t know what to expect), and they made the whole process seamless and took some fantastic photos that Iโ€™m sure to cherish forever.

100% would recommend to a friend. I already have.

We had a great experience with the photographers, they made us feel comfortable and knew just what to do. We have two kids and we were able to get amazing photos of them - thank you!

I just did a shoot today with this amazing partnership of photographers. They were both knowledgeable about posing, lighting, and taking into account the surrounding nature and all the things it had to offer. They worked with both myself and my dog and were able to flawlessly photograph the both of us. I would recommend them for any of your needs.

Our family had an amazing session with Amanda and Andre. They were professional, ready on time, and very engaged with our desires for a fun family shoot. It all felt very natural and not at all intimidating. They listened to our ideas but also Amanda had a passel of ideas planned ahead for the locale. We now have many lovely shots, candid and professional both. I would not hesitate to book again, with for casual shoots or more formal.
