Nick was GREAT to work with. The studio is awesome! It was a hot day so he used a fan to cool me off during the shoot. I was nervous about posing and he made me feel real comfortable while he set the lights. I had a great experience and got plenty of good pictures to choose from for my profile headshot.

Nick was great to work with and was very helpful and professional with guiding me through the process. It was very quick and painless. The quality is comparable to any other studio, but at a much more reasonable price as well, which is a plus for me as a young professional that can't easily drop $300+ on just a basic headshot session. I am very happy with my experience and would reccomend it to anyone.

Nick was great! I told him it was my first time getting having professional pictures taken and I didn't know what I was doing. He was very accommodating and helped me through the process with ease. We took way more pictures than I thought and he gave them all to me. The pictures came out really well, I'm glad I did this.

I was late to my appointment with Nick but fortunately he was still able to accommodate me kindly. I came in for an ERAS medical residency picture and he guided me with great detail (I don’t know anything about headshots so I appreciated it). He’s very professional and I could tell he puts in a lot of work to create a good business too. I’d recommend him to everyone!

Nick is the consummate professional photographer and local business leader. I found his customer service, photographic services, and overall customer satisfaction was excellent. I would recommend Nick and Redleaf Photography to any of my friends, family, or colleagues. You will not be disappointed! Lastly; the deal with the pictures in a like 10 minutes? That's not really the case when I went, it was more like 5 minutes! Ridiculous service Nick!!! Very satisfied customer!

Money well-spent! Nick was super professional, efficient and thorough going through all the different photo options / poses. He lets you look through a few photos to pick the poses that you like best. I have to say he runs a well-oiled machine. If you’re considering Redleaf, I highly recommend them for your professional headshots.

Nick was very friendly and professional! I was nervous going in because I’m new to the camera and I wasn’t sure what to expect; he broke everything down for me before we started and took the time to make me comfortable. The photos I got were well worth the time and money I spent. I’ll definitely go back to Nick next time I need photos!

The service is good, the price is right, and the experience will send me back again the next time I need an update. Thanks Nick!

Nick was amazing to work with!! I'm definitely not a natural in front of the camera, but he made the entire process so easy. He took several shots in different poses and then let me see them and decide what I thought looked best before continuing. He also made sure that I was happy with the photos before leaving the studio. They were emailed to me within a few minutes and the quality of his photos are great even without retouching. I would definitely recommend him!

To be honest, I don't like taking pictures because I don't normally like how I look in pictures however the headshots I took with Nick are exceptional, one of the rare occasions that I really like my own pictures. He was very engaged, I really like his process. He walks your through the process, talks to you about your goals and determines with you the best output to meet your goals. Thanks man, you're the best!

They have LinkedIn Special for significantly cheaper than whatever you can find elsewhere. Nick was also very professional and covered exactly what I was looking for. If you just need a few good headshots for professional profile I highly recommend Nick for his LinkedIn special.

It was a great experience today. I'm medical student who was looking for great and affordable picture for eras. Nick did a great job. He explained everything in amazing way. Took around 50 picture which all was professional and hard to choose from. I would encourage all my friends to take their ERAS picture there.

Overall a fantastic experience. Complimentary parking was easy, Nick was kind and straightforward and provided great direction. We took way more photos than I expected and I had the chance to review shots throughout the process to determine what I liked/disliked about the angles, how my hair was styled, etc. Would absolutely recommend!

I was having my ERAS picture taken for medical residency. Nick was excellent! He was very thorough in the beginning and explained out each of the shots would work. He stopped multiple times throughout the shoot to let me look and decide what I liked and didn't like. I did not feel rushed for time at all and the pictures looked great! I highly recommend! He has the most affordable price!

It was a great experience working with Nick! You get more than what you pay for as far as the ease-of-process, quality of photography, and timely delivery of the photos. He has a nice formula for exploring the space of possible photographic angles and definitely cares that you walk out with something that you like.

Nick was very professional and great at helping me feel less like this was my first photoshoot. Came away with 65 images that I could choose from myself, all sent to me under an hour after leaving! He was also willing to re-size the photo I had chosen to use for my ERAS application. Awesome quality and unbeatable price. He is doing all of us broke medical students a big favour!

I did the LinkedIn head shot special and my pictures turned out really nice. They do a great job of capturing all possible angles for a great professional picture. I had little time for the photo shoot, and Nick took care of my shots in the time frame requested, so i was able to get back to work without being gone for too long.

Great job today by Nick at ReadLeaf Studios, very professional and easy to work with. I had a need to update my Linkedin photo and to have a couple of more shots I can use to promote my work. In about 40 minutes I had exactly what I needed. I would highly recommend RedLeaf if you need professional portraits. Great experience! Brian L.

Nick is awesome. I've been putting off headshots for ages and finally made an appointment. Truly a fantastic experience. He is so efficient, affordable and makes the whole process easy - from clear parking instructions, his communication during the shoot, speed in capturing pictures, technical explanations, on point lighting, feedback, direction, and on and on. I don't enjoy having my picture taken but he made it painless. The turn around time is unbelievable. My pictures were in my inbox by the time I got home from our session. Thank you, Nick.

After doing quite a bit of shopping around for a good photographer for residency photos, I finally decided on Studio Redleaf and I'm so happy that I did! Nick is an excellent photographer and really knows how to bring out the best look for your photo. His attention to detail and friendly nature made for a casual and enjoyable photo shoot. I am so happy with my photos, and best of all, they were sent to me within 30 minutes of my photo shoot! I highly recommend Studio Redleaf photography to anyone looking to take professional photos. You will not be disappointed!

Nick was amazing! He explained what was going to take place and executed the shoot. I needed professional head shots for my residency application and I was able to review them before leaving the studio and with the next hour my photos were available. He takes plenty of photos from different angles so you’re able to choose the one to your liking.
