Dani shot our son's Bar Mitzvah and did a great job of it. She has a lot of experience in this and it showed. I wanted someone who knew their way around the ceremony, the facilities, the people, and knew what pictures to take, and we got all that with her. Time for photos at an event is really scarce and it would be easy to let it slip by, but she didn't. She was business-like in her approach and that's a good thing. She was on top of what needed to happen and made it so. I should also mention that we also made it difficult for her by not wanting to start too early and instead to continue taking photos after the ceremony. She recommended against this, but when I insisted, she unhesitatingly went along with it and did a great job. In fact, after the ceremony we went a overboard directing which pictures we wanted with which groups of people (mostly us posed with all the guest families separately). Someone else might have bristled or balked at being directed for what was probably a half hour, but she didn't at all. She went along with us and took great photos, In short, when we left it to her she delivered, and when we were being directive, she happily went along and gave us what we wanted. I will definitely use her again next time.
C. B. Bell is one of the most talented photographers in Seattle. I witnessed this expertise while in a career in which the processed work of photo professionals throughout the Northwest and internationally was printed. (Advertising, Corporate and Professional) C.B. Bell’s strong intuition, sensitivity and incredible people skills, capture the moment that will be treasured for decades to come. Few photographers in the Northwest have a style the can be noted from across the room. C. B.’s lighting, composition, color and above all, way of capturing moments like no other, are what others strive for. C. B. also knows how to prepare you, on one of the most stressful days of your life, to laugh and have the photography experience happen with ease. In conclusion; I found the review below while researching photographers in the Northwest. Often one experience (in which all the details are not often shown) is what ends up being in cyberspace center stage for perpetuity. I strongly recommend reading all the reviews and do recommend, without reservation, C. B. Bell Photography. You will have memories beyond measure.
