Suz & MC
"I love our photos because they are genuine, organic, and showcase our family in a really sweet way - not at all stiff, unoriginal, cheesy, or overdone."
"But they are also romantic, professional quality photos that I'm excited to hang on our walls for years and years. Definitely. Hire. Radian!"
"The quality, the originality, the vantage points, the creativity in each shot – no detail was missed."
"I love the photographs, and I felt so comfortable with her. In all honesty, I hate having my picture taken, but I would spend a day with Radhika even if my picture were not being taken! I recommend them highly."
