Rashidah was so cool. Very easy going, pleasant and accommodating.
So to begin with, I chose her because of the way she set up her information. She was precise about instructions on how best to contact her, and included valuable tips to prepare for your sitting. I needed someone immediately (that day or the next) and everything went like clockwork. When I showed up, she made me feel easy as I kept apologizing for not knowing how to put on makeup or posing. Her confidence assuring me that natural is absolutely fine; she would adjust for coloration and smoothness. And i haven't even seen the final proofs yet! But it was cool because I could see all the shots as they occurred right on the monitor. I would recommend her without hesitation.
I told her exactly what I wanted for a commercial headshot. Within 1 week of submitting my new photos, I was called in for an audition and landed a callback. I loved the response to my photo so much that I hired Rashidah De Vore Photography for my dance studio's photo shoot and video shoot. My clients can't stop talking about how much they love the new photos and promotional video. She has managed to capture the heart of my business and my art.
Very easy to work with and quick turn around time. Plus extremely affordable.
I'm already planning our next video shoot and I look forward to working with Rashidah De Vore Photography again.
I found Rashidah after spending WAY too much on a different company's headshot that I was not happy with. I decided to give Rashidah's 15 minute mini-session a shot, and am so happy I did. She was great to work with, efficient with the time, and produced a perfect headshot for me in 15 minutes at a fraction of the cost of most other companies. She is very sweet and made me feel very comfortable. I wish I had gone to her in the first place and will go back anytime I need other photos done.
Top to bottom, Rashidah was incredible to work with.
Her pricing structure is unbeatable for the value she offers. Her studio space is easy to get to and in a quiet area, which made shooting exterior shots painless (no competing with hordes of pedestrians for sidewalk real estate!). Scheduling through her website was quick and easy. She offered an incredibly relaxed atmosphere for a comfortable photo shoot session, and worked fast. We were able to fit two looks with both interior and exterior shots for each look in a half hour session. During each section, she was sure to show me how some of the shots were turning out in order to make sure I was satisfied with what we were getting. She also went through the images, removed the out-of-focus and closed-eye shots, and got the full batch untouched photos uploaded and sent to me the same day. Incredible turnaround time! Obviously retouched images would take longer but being able to start that review process the same day is a wonderful time-saver. When I need to update my shots in the future, I will be sure to reach out to Rashidah again. I just hope her rates don’t go up *too* much before then!
With her direction I went from looking nervous and tense on film to looking relaxed and comfortable and it really shows in my photos. We shot Friday morning and by Saturday morning she had delivered my selected retouched photos to my inbox. I've received a ton of compliments on my photos already and now I'm excited to showcase my new headshots for my social profiles and for my business branding. I've already recommended Rashidah to two other people and I would recommend her for anyone who is looking to get their headshots done quickly, affordably and professionally!
