From R.G.

You have made tangible all the pictures–and some I don’t–carry in my head of my kids! All their goofiness and sweetness and loveliness that they have at this age was captured. It’s such a precious, innocent age and priceless time in ours and their relationship. I cannot thank you enough!!
May you have a wonderful, and very Happy Thanksgiving! I will count you amongst the people for which I’m thankful!
Many hugs and much gratitude,
RG

From R. Renck

Simply put, Ken is a wonderful photographer, for a multitude of reasons.

First, Ken is unique in the warmth and ease that you feel from him. The atmosphere he creates is relaxed and unhurried, which allows for real interaction. Therefore, nothing fake, stiff, or posed-feeling is carried into the images.  He engages my children naturally and comfortably and is sweet and funny with them. He encourages them to be themselves and play so that they can even have fun during the whole process.  He then captures those moments In Which they reveal their true personalities, with real grins and laughs that only a nuanced photographer with a great deal of experience could make sure to watch for. My children actually look forward To seeing him once a year!
Secondly, Ken takes those priceless moments and skillfully produces incredible images. His ability to take any picture and edit it to create a desired effect is excellent. You see his artistry really come out here. And he is a perfectionist! However, In no way does he make you feel uncomfortable or pressured. He is exactly the opposite. It is evident that he truly wants his customers to be happy. He sits down and works with you to create portraits that are appealing and truly beautiful. His suggestions for framing also helped reveal and enhance the nature of each photograph.  I loved the convenience in being able to have him handle the whole process from start to finish. I now have family portraits I am proud to hang on my wall.
Overall, we’ve enjoyed our experiences with Ken. I truly think Ken is a gem and I am so happy and grateful for the opportunity to work with him!

About Ken Wolf

When I decided to become a professional photographer 30 years ago, I had National Geographic in mind. NG photographers used their cameras to explore the world, to learn, and to benefit others from that experience. They created beautiful stand-alone images that stunned viewers and told stories.

Over the last thirty years, I have tried to use that model to develop my career. I have used the camera to watch and learn. That experience has given the opportunity to – among other things – watch dolphins being trained and studied in Hawaii, to cover a three-day wedding in Napa Valley, and to roam the state of North Carolina learning about Tobacco.

Pursuing photography has taught me about the world;  given me the opportunity to learn how to run a business; offered me the daily challenge to be creative and to innovate; and allowed me to become the person I wanted to become in life.
