Not Your Average Photographer

We wanted to learn what makes this award-winning business tick, so we took a few minutes to talk with Christina Hamilton, who co-owns Hamilton Photography with her husband, Mark.

To kick off our conversation, we asked Christina about what makes Hamilton Photography unique compared to the many other photographers in Maryland. Christina told us:

“We are a small, local company. I hear a lot that our customer service is awesome. We’re at the front of our business, not behind a bunch of employees. Our reputation over the past 19 years has been the result of high-experience, high-quality and exceptional customer service. People hire us because they trust us! “

We also asked Christina about the Hamilton Photography mission and how they work to make the world a better place. Here’s what Christina had to say:

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not a single act, but a habit.”

Building Success by Providing a Great Customer Experience

Christina credits Hamilton Photography’s strong online reputation to their commitment to ensuring that their customers have a great experience working with them:

“We build a relationship, from the consultation to the delivery of the photos. When they ask if there’s anything they can do, we ask that they leave a review!”

Outside of building a powerful online reputation, Hamilton Photography has grown through Facebook and Instagram and by supporting the marketing efforts of their venues. However, 90 perfect of their business comes from word of mouth.

There are many business owners looking to grow their business and build their online reputation. Here’s Christina’s expert advice for them:

“It’s about long-term achievement and not immediate satisfaction. It’s important to be looking ahead for five years and having a plan; otherwise, your business will not be successful. There is a lot of competition out there, and you need to stay a step ahead!”

Christina ended our conversation with this sentiment:

“You can find us out and about in the Indianapolis and Baltimore area all summer long! We’ll be out every weekend.”


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