Here's what Friends of Peridot Imagery are saying ...

"I’m someone who isn’t a fan of taking pictures because I have my own insecurities. But I knew it was important to take professional photos to celebrate my graduation. After reading several high quality reviews regarding Peridot Imagery, I reached out to April to request a session. I had several questions and expressed my concern regarding taking pictures. But April was BEYOND patient and put all the nerves at ease. She was attentive to my needs and requests, she’s very detailed in catching the right angles and lighting, and was incredibly professional from start to finish. April took a situation that I was extremely apprehensive over, and turned into a great time! She could tell I was eager to get my pictures, so she gave them to me edited within 24 hours. Talk about customer service! April has the ability to turn your thoughts and expectations into reality and then some! If you’re searching for someone reliable, honest, talented and quick with responses, book with Peridot Imagery and with April as your photographer! I guarantee, you won’t be disappointed."

"Did a photo shoot with this woman who was nothing short of professional, welcoming and on point with her craft! I couldn’t have worked with a better photographer. She’s definitely someone I’ll be utilizing in the near future! ❤️"

"I coach Entrepreneurs but my photos and brand did not fit my image at all. I looked as if I worked in my business instead of running my business. April made my shoot fun and was able to capture my dope CEO side. If you are an entrepreneur she will take your game to the next level!"

I am beyond tears with the beautiful photos that April was able to capture. I had a vision to commemorate me being me... not only did she make that vision come alive but she was able to take photos of my son being himself playing in the garden. It was such a fun photo session... we talked and enjoyed the gardens and she was right there making us feel so comfortable as she snapped away. I will cherish these photos forever. I value her artistic skills as a photographer I appreciate her friendship. Thank you so much April for your time and patience and love. I feel through each photo. I look forward to working with you again. Keep up the excellent work. Love you much Ebony

The overall session with Peridot Imagery was amazing! It was my very first time doing something like that and I figured it would be a cute Valentine’s Day gift for my boyfriend. April was very professional and friendly, she made sure I felt comfortable at all times! She was great with providing direction and having a vision for what kind of photos she wanted to capture. Reese the makeup artist was also great! She was friendly and made sure to put her great skill to use and made me look beautiful without having an abundance of makeup used. I really had a wonderful experience and I would recommend it to anyone wanting to feel sexy, class and confident :-)

Wonderful photographer

"April was wonderful from the very beginning. Flexible, accommodating, patient and calm. 
She is very professional. And then wow! The most beautiful photos we could have ever asked for! We were happy just while she took pictures we somehow felt they would be great but never could have wished for such pictures ! Thank you again for capturing the happiness we felt !"

"April shot my husband and my convalidation ceremony today at the church and also did some photos that we wanted afterwards around our neighborhood in Manhattan. Prior to our meeting she was super fast to communicate and respond to any questions I had. When we showed up to the church today she was already there and took so many wonderful photos and was able to capture exactly what we wanted in these photos. Even better was the turnaround time with the photos - we have them already. Would without a doubt recommend her and will hire her again the next time we need a photographer!"

"I cannot say enough great things about April. She recently photographed my engagement party. She was so professional, kind and upbeat. She jumped right in and was snapping photos right and left. She really captured the day and I have beautiful photos to cherish forever. The photos came out so gorgeous and her eye for catching the best moments is really something special. Highly recommended!"

"April showed up on time, and immediately asked if there was anything that she may help with; I was pleased. She was very pleasant and kept busy. I appreciate that she captured images of all guests as they arrived. Usually at parties I ask photographers to take a group shot of the guests, but I forgot. I'm happy she captured everyone who were in attendance. When I saw the gallery, I was impressed with the great quality of the pics. I was also happy with the quick turnaround. Thank you, April!"

"I hired April to photograph my daughters 5th birthday celebration, and I cannot recommend her enough. Prior to the event she answered all of my questions and concerns with no delay. She was courteous, professional, and her prices were very affordable. She went above and beyond at the event and the photos were gorgeous! Every one loved them and the turnaround time was quick. Her candid photos were my favorite. I was pleasantly surprised by some of the moments she captured that I never even knew she was taking. I’ve cycled through the photos a million times already. I am so happy I found her. I have ZERO complaints and will be calling April for all of my photography needs. Amazing job!"

"April James did a phenomenal job taking pictures in honor of my son's 2nd birthday! She was extremely professional, prompt, and truly captured the happiness and playfulness that my son exudes! The pictures are beautiful and I will cherish them forever. I would recommend April to anyone looking for a skilled and professional photographer."

"She's amazing! Her talent and personality are two things that any photographer needs and that's what she has. She's very patient, organized and works very hard. If you ever need a photographer I would definitely recommend her! :)"

"I used Peridot Imagery for my wedding. I already knew that I did not want traditional images. I wanted to use a photographer that took a more artistic approach to capturing the special day. April was very professional from the beginning. She was very interested in what my vision was, but was able to provide useful input and elaborate on my vision. The day of the wedding she showed up early and was so pleasant to work with. She made me feel extremely comfortable. When I received the images that she captured, which only took a couple of weeks, I was pleasantly surprised by what I saw. She did an amazing job at bringing my vision to life. In fact, I preferred her work over the more expensive alternate photographer I hired. I would definitely recommend Peridot Imagery. I look forward to working with April in the near future."

"I got some excellent photos done by Mrs. April James. She came to our residence a few minutes early and immediately began providing several great ideas for possible photos. My fiancé and I were extremely happy with her photos and especially enjoyed her professional calm demeanor while working with her. Great lighting great poses and great results."

I'm absolutely in love with April James style of photography. Her passion pours out of the camera into the individuals she is capturing with the lens. She is professional and has outstanding client etiquette. I highly recommend her to all. Thank you for creating an album of memories for our friends & family.
