Virginia’s Top Rated Local® Photographers Award Winner: Photography by mj, LLC

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Photography by mj, LLC is a 2019 award winner for photographers in Virginia!

If you’re looking for a photographer who can capture the moment like no one else, look no further than Photography by mj, LLC in Chesapeake.

Photography by mj, LLC has received more than 100 reviews on five verified sites with an average rating of 4.83 stars, earning them a phenomenal Rating Score™ of 99.28 and two Top Rated Local for 2018 — one for ranking among the top 100 businesses in Virginia and one for being ranked the number one photographer in Virginia!

Here’s just one of mj’s many five-star reviews:

“mj is the BABY WHISPERER! We took our newborn son to her studio for his photos at eight days old. He slept soundly for two solid hours with her while she changed his outfits / changed his position / changed his backgrounds. Her creativity and professionalism is AMAZING, and her product is PRICELESS. My husband was a little skeptical about the financial investment, but after going to the newborn photo session, he was happy to provide all of our credit card information for SO many photos! We are lucky to have found mj and will definitely be coming back for future sessions!” – Samantha W.

Not Your Average Photographer

We sat down with mj herself to learn a little more about Photography by mj, LLC and how she managed to build such an impressive online reputation for her business.

The first thing we wanted to know is what makes Photography by mj different from the many other photographers in Virginia. Here’s what mj had to say:

“I provide an overall experience when you work with me. I don’t just shoot and send you off with a CD of pictures. No, I conduct everything in person, so you are well informed along the way, and I help my clients make choices that will best work for them. I first have an in-person consult, where we get the chance to meet, you get to see the studio space, see all the cute props I offer and examine amazing sample products, and we’ll go over pricing and payment options together. My clients leave with wall art to showcase in their homes, albums to cherish and folio boxes to preserve their memories.”

We also asked mj why she does what she does and how she works to make the world a better place. Here’s her response:

“I LOVE this question, because my motto has always been, ‘Do what you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life.’ I LOVE my job! I get to work with families who JUST brought a brand-new, tiny life into the world! It’s an honor when they choose me to document this stage that will just FLY BY. Their baby will NEVER be this small again. Newborn photography is its own art, and when done correctly, it’s a beautiful keepsake of those first few days of life. In those first few days, life is a blur! Most parents are just trying to survive each day, and they don’t always get a chance to take in all the sweet little features of their baby. I LOVE that I can capture the little back rolls, their sweet little lips, all pursed together, the tiny little hands and toes.”

Building Success Through Good Customer Service

mj credits her business’ strong online reputation to her commitment to providing good customer service:

“My clients usually understand that my small business is personal, and it thrives on online reviews, so most will review me either on Google or Facebook just because they had such a wonderful experience with me. That’s pretty awesome because I am a newborn photographer. Glowing reviews are what an expectant family wants to see when hiring a photographer to work with their precious baby.”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, networking has been key to growth for Photography by mj:

“I love venturing out into the actual world and connecting with other businesses that might have the same clients I do and helping each other out! I try to connect with other businesses that cater to new moms. I also will host events in the studio. I’ve done several open houses, where folks can come out, meet me, see all the goodies I offer and book sessions on the spot. In such an online world, I think people often forget about the power of good ol’ fashioned networking.”

Clearly, mj understands a thing or two about how to grow a business and build an online reputation. Here’s her expert advice for the many other business owners out there working to do the same thing:

“Social media [marketing] is a great start. I stay active on Facebook and Instagram. I LOVE posting behind the scene [photos] on my Instagram stories, too! I think it’s great for people to see me in action. But you cannot depend on those alone to bring in clients. Most of my clients find me on Google, so your website and SEO have got to be on point! Having an organic reach is the best way to really bring in the right clients.”


Congratulations to Photography by mj, LLC for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, mj, for taking the time to speak with us!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“We used Nathan for a second time recently to capture our family photos. Just like last time, he did not disappoint. When we received the digitals, we were blown away by how amazing all the pictures turned out. We have two energetic six-year-olds, and it’s not easy to keep them still. The fact that he got such great candids while they were a tornado of motion speaks a lot to his skill. Nathan is patient, professional and wonderful to work with. We will definitely be using him again.” – Judy R.

Not Your Average Photographer

We sat down with Nathan Nowack himself to learn what makes Nathan Nowack Photography different from the many other photographers in California. He shared with us that he tries to be creative and to do something different whenever he can. So if you’re looking for quality photos, but you don’t want to settle for cookie-cutter images, Nathan is your guy.

We also wanted to know why Nathan does what he does. Here’s what he had to say:

“I really enjoy what I do. One thing my parents always taught me is that you should do what you love, and I have.”

Building Success Through Good Service and Happy Clients

When asked what Nathan Nowack Photography’s secret is to such a strong online reputation, Nathan has this to say:

“Actually getting content out there online is the biggest challenge for a lot of people. Posting on social media, the blog and getting awareness out there are all very important. Make it easy for people to review and want to review you.”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Nathan’s commitment to providing good customer service and keeping his clients happy has helped his company grow.

There are so many other business owners out there looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here’s Nathan’s expert advice for those business owners:

“Work on the basics first. Do what you love. Do a good job, and that isn’t always about making the money. The money will come if you actually have a passion for it and you do a good job of learning about your process/equipment and industry changes.”


Congratulations to Nathan Nowack Photography for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Nathan, for taking the time to speak with us!

New Mexico’s Top Rated Local® Photographers Award Winner: Natural Touch Photography

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Natural Touch Photography is a 2019 award winner for photographers in New Mexico!

From wedding and engagement photos to senior and family portraits, Natural Touch Photography in Santa Fe delivers amazing results and timeless images.

Natural Touch Photography has received dozens of reviews on three verified sites with an average rating of 4.73 stars, earning them a superb Rating Score™ of 93.30 and a 2019 Top Rated Local award for ranking among the top 10 photographers in all of New Mexico!

Here’s just one of their many five-star reviews:

“Guillermo shot our wedding and his remarkable talent, creativity, and warmth made our big day bigger and better in every way. My wife loves every photo and is so proud of them. We will be sharing them with friends and family for the rest of our lives.” – Nick A.

Not Your Average Photographer

We sat down with Guillermo Quijano, the owner of Natural Touch Photography, to find out what sets Natural Photography apart in New Mexico. Here’s what he had to say:

“I’m prompt; I’m professional, and my work is good. That’s how I set myself apart. I talk to a lot of people who say they’ve reached out to other photographers and gotten no response. I do things normally: I don’t use social media very much; I don’t do posts to see if people react; I just tell my own story, no bells and whistles, and people like that. They’re drawn to simplicity. I don’t ‘sell’ either. I just show prospective clients my portfolio.”

We also asked Guillermo why he does what he does and how he works to make the world a better place. Here’s his response:

“Fate played a big part! I used to be in the wireless phone industry, and I went to a studio to see if they’d like to work with me. They happened to be hiring for a photographer; they were interested in hiring me, and I took the job. Thirty years later, here I am. I’ve never regretted it for even a second. I couldn’t take another meeting or Powerpoint or conference call where no one shows up. I just left that world, and I’ve never looked back. I made a website and printed some business cards, and I booked 120 weddings my first year. When you go from making a miserable salary working for someone who doesn’t appreciate you to working for yourself, it’s not hard to be passionate about what you do.”

Building Success by Asking for Honest Feedback

Guillermo credits Natural Touch Photography’s strong online reputation to his commitment to asking his clients for honest feedback:

“The secret is that I ask my customers to review me in any way they’d like. I don’t coach them — I want honest feedback, but most do have positive responses for me. I start by providing a great service, so I’m confident that when I ask, I’ll get a favorable reply. The bottom line is that if you don’t ask for reviews, you won’t get them. It’s just a fact. It’s not that your customers don’t want to review you; they have lives and things to do, and ultimately, other things take priority. I also provide incentives for people to leave reviews. If they leave a review, I’ll give them a free print from their wedding. I’m pretty sure Yelp would hate me for doing that…”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Guillermo has grown Natural Touch Photography by networking and through his website and other marketing materials:

“I am a very good networker. I get out there; everybody knows me, and I talk to people. I do a lot of marketing with my website and marketing materials that I’ve created. I feel confident because I’ve made it, and I feel like it represents me well and tells my story. I even signed up with a local wedding vendor on day one, and that’s been very effective for me.”

Guillermo clearly knows a thing or two about how to grow a business and build an online reputation. Here’s his expert advice for the many other business owners out there working to do the same thing:

“My advice would be to remember that Google is king. If you’re not there, if your website isn’t there, if you don’t have a website that caters to Google’s rules, you’ll fail. No question. No one cares what I think, and I don’t care if I like my own website, as long as my clients and Google like it. Focus on yourself — know who your competitors are — but don’t build your business based on what everyone else is doing or you’ll lose originality. Also, be disciplined. If you call yourself self-employed but sit at home and watch TV every day, you’ll fail. Take it as seriously as if you were employed by someone, because you are — you’re employed by yourself.”


Congratulations to Natural Touch Photography for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Guillermo, for taking the time to speak with us!

Virginia’s Top Rated Local® Photographer Award Winner: Kelly Marie Photography

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Kelly Marie Photography is a 2019 award winner!

A 97.47 Rating Score™, a 4.95 average star rating, and more than 100 rave reviews on a handful of verified review sites make Kelly Marie Photography one of the top 10 photographers in the state of Virginia for 2019! This is just one of the fantastic reviews they’ve received:

“Kelly was fantastic to work with right from the start. She was very accommodating and worked with us to find a package arrangement that fit in our budget. She was very responsive and helpful — I was planning a wedding in Virginia from Texas and helped me handle every detail and made time to meet with me when I was in town. Her planning is very thorough, which made the day of shots flow very smoothly. She was very open to any specific ideas I had for shots and then made them better than anything I had thought of. The day of the wedding, she was incredible. She and her assistant were very professional and personal, which put everyone at ease, and they handled my large family crowd amazingly well. The photos captured our day perfectly, and I could not be happier with her work. You will not be disappointed by hiring Kelly!” -Erin

Not Your Average Photography Company

We spoke with Kelly Marie herself about the business’ stupendous online reputation.

Kelly is incredibly passionate about the work she does. She does what she does because she cares deeply that her clients’ important moments are captured in a beautiful way. She says the difference between her photography services and those of her competitors is “the retouching, not many photographers include that in their packages. I spend more time than the average photographer on editing.”

Building Success By Making Clients Comfortable

So, what’s the Kelly Marie Photography secret to success? According to Kelly, “I’m easily relatable and clients feel comfortable around me. People can be themselves and show their real selves, so photos are genuine. Our packages include retouching, which helps with the quality of photo that clients are looking for.”

As an award-winning business owner, Kelly Marie has experience and knowledge to match. The following is her advice to other businesses that want to build up an awesome online reputation:

“Put everything into what you provide to your clients. Do your best for every single customer, and give the highest quality product possible. Take great care of your clients, and they will continue to come back and refer their friends and family.”


Congratulations to the team at Kelly Marie Photography for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner, and thank you so much, Kelly Marie, for taking the time to speak with us!

Alabama’s Top Rated Local® Photographer Award Winner: Appear Photography

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Appear Photography is a 2019 award winner!

“I’m always blown away by Lori’s work. She’s creative, caring and so gentle with the little babies! She’s just so easy to work with as well, which is why we continue to work with her. She’s professional and has a beautiful studio with all the props, swaddles, and clothes you could want! We also have loved the outdoor photos we’ve taken with her. She’s truly one of a kind to work with and our family highly recommends her!” -Martin S.

As one of the top 10 photography businesses in the entire state of Alabama, Appear Photography has tons of positive reviews, just like these — as well as a 95.08 Rating Score™ and a 4.81 average star rating on verified sites.

Not Your Average Company

We spoke with Lori Cummings, the owner of Appear Photography, about her business’ impressive online reputation. This is what she says makes Appear Photography different from other photographers in the area:

“We have over 15 years of experience in the photography industry and this is our full-time profession. Our number one goal is for our clients to love their photos. We like to communicate with each client before their photo session to find out their preferences and the vision that they may have for their photo session. We are a husband and wife team with two sides to our business. We are both continually honing our skills to become better and better at what we do and each have our own niche in photography. Lynn’s side of the business focuses on weddings, events and corporate photography, while mine focuses on newborn, children, and family photography. We’re a full-service studio which means we not only shoot and edit photos, but we also offer professional finished products such as canvases and prints, high-end albums and other specialty printed items.”

Building Success By Putting The Client First

Lori and Lynn believe wholeheartedly that their job is all about making the client happy. That has helped them earn their phenomenal reputation, both online and off.

So, what’s Lori’s advice to other business owners who want to build up a phenomenal online reputation? “When clients are happy, they want to share their experience with others. It’s also ok to ask clients to give you a quick review online. Running contests or promotions every now and then is a good way to gain attention on social media. Most of all, if you focus on doing your absolute best at everything you do, people will notice your quality of work and attention to detail.”


Thank you for speaking with us, Lori! Congratulations to the team at Appear Photography for being a 2019 Top Rated Local award winner!

I look forward to working with him again in the future.” -Sabrina T.

“Keith has done a maternity session with my family as well as two family portrait sessions. All three sessions were outstanding! He’s always coming up with new and creative ideas. He’s always professional and friendly, and has also worked well with getting my toddler to smile (which is a feat in itself). I can’t express how impressed I have been with his photography!” -Felicia I.

A One-of-a-Kind Photography Company’s Secret to a Strong Online Reputation

Our team spoke with Keith about his business’ marvelous online reputation.

Keith’s secret to success lies in his comprehensive approach to the service he provides.

I am a firm believer that attitude determines altitude! Set a great trajectory for success by treating your customers the right way.”

Making the World a Better Place By Capturing Important Moments

The location in Portland gave us plenty of nice backdrops for our photos. Thank you, Fritz Photo, for doing a great job! We will recommend you.” – J.J.M.

Not Your Average Photographer

We sat down with Fritz, the owner of Fritz Photo, to find out what makes his business different. He shared with us that it’s his experience that makes the biggest difference, and it’s what really matters in his industry.

“Photography has become so easy to enter, so if you’re entrusting your event to someone, and if the results actually matter to you, I’d suggest entrusting your project to a professional with a lot of experience.”

When asked why he does what he does and how he works to make the world a better place, he had this to share:

“I started, actually, as an artist. Creating beautiful things gives me a lot of pleasure, and I apply that to my commercial work as well. Whether I’m working for a hospital, a family or a high school senior, I just enjoy creating beautiful images for people. That’s the primary focus, but also, I love the pleasure of rising to a challenge. There’s a technical and aesthetic challenge to this job that keeps it interesting for me.”

Building Success Through Experience and Quality Service

Fritz credits his business’ strong online reputation to the many years of experience he has working in the industry:

“I started the company in 2000, and I’ve been working on our online presence ever since, both in social media and on the web in general.”

Outside of building an online reputation that any business owner would envy, Fritz has built his business by continually updating his website and providing quality service.

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Ambient Art Photography is a 2018 award winner!

“We used Brett and Alicia for our wedding and engagement shots. They are definitely a dynamic duo, very professional and easy to work with. But most importantly, they both take priceless photos! Their sparkler send-off and sunset photos are an absolute must! We will definitely book them again in the future! Thank you once again to the Nelson Family! You guys rock!” -Daniel R.

“I have used this company twice, once for a family photo and another for a special science photo shoot. Alicia and Brett are both very professional. They also are wonderful with kids. That’s always a plus when you’re trying to get photos of little ones. Alicia also had a salon and does hair and makeup, and seeing her work through photos is pretty cool, too. Give them a call or shoot them an email. You won’t be disappointed.” -Megan A.

“Brett and Alicia are a fantastic team. They made me feel so special on my wedding day and took the best pictures. I loved them so much, I went back to do my maternity photos. Alicia did a fantastic job with my hair and makeup. These two are a very talented pair, and were the best decision I made when it came to my wedding photographer.” -Susan O.

These are just three of the reviews that helped Ambient Art Photography not only land in the top 10 photographers in California, but in the top 100 businesses altogether in the state.

He and his wife, Alicia, take immense pride in the fact that they’ve been trained by the best and offer specialty services, like boudoir portraits. “We’re very fashion-centered with our portraits and make sure everyone looks their best. We spend a ton of time on editing to make sure everything looks perfect. We deliver over 1,000 photos, and most of the competition delivers half of that.”

Building Success By Going The Extra Mile

The following is Brett’s advice to other business owners who want to create stellar online reputations:

“Network and try to build great relationships. People tend to shy away from vendors and other photographers, but it is super important to build relationships. They ask for reviews all the time, after every single session, to ask how the experience went. You have to stay consistent.”


Thank you for speaking with us, Brett! Congratulations to the team at Ambient Art Photography for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner!

Texas’ Top Rated Local® Photographer Award Winner: Al Torres Photography

Top Rated Local® is pleased to announce that Al Torres Photography is one of the top 10 photographers in the entire state of Texas!

Photography is an art form, and art is subjective. However, it stands within reason that the team at Al Torres Photography is pretty phenomenal at what they do, considering their 98.88 Rating Score™, 4.89 average star rating, and 2018 Top Rated Local award. Here are just two of the reviews they’ve received from happy clients:

“I have used Al Torres Photography about four times now for everything from my wedding to family photos and professional headshots. They are so professional, [provide an] excellent quality of work, and have such special presentations [for their photos]. They make you feel like your day is just as important to them as it is you. I would NEVER get photos done by anyone but Al Torres….unless he retires.”

“Al is simply amazing! I have been following him on Facebook for several years — always in awe of his ability to really capture a moment. So, recently when I decided to have some photos taken, I could not wait to place the call to his studio. From start (thank you, Carmen) to finish, the entire experience was unbelievable, and the photos were just simply beautiful. I am very camera shy, and yet Al’s warm demeanor put me at ease, and he captured me — my personality. It was not just a photo of me. He is a true master of his craft. I have booked him for my upcoming wedding this fall! The BEST in Houston!”

Not Your Average Photography Company

Carmen Torres, the studio manager at Al Torres Photography, took some time to speak with our team.

So, what is it that sets Al Torres Photography apart from other photography businesses in the area? “We have experience — about 30 years in the biz. We say what we do and do what we say, and we run an honest business. I see the work we do every day, and I am absolutely blown away at the quality of the work we produce. We have such a unique passion for what we do every day; e love weddings, headshots, graduations, newborn babies, etc., and love capturing these moments and showing the best side of our clients to the world.”

Building Success Through Unparalleled Images

The secret to Al Torres Photography’s success lies, in large part, in their ability to truly capture a moment. “The images we take speak for themselves. They are engaging, current, and capture the personality of the client,” Carmen said. “We need to make sure the client is happy with our finished product. When the client is pleased with their results, they will tell their friends, and reviews will come in organically”

Carmen’s advice to business owners? “Be honest with your customers. Be consistent. Treat people with the utmost respect and make sure you provide a good product and service.”


Thank you for speaking with us, Carmen! Congratulations to the team at Al Torres Photography for being a 2018 Top Rated Local award winner!\
