Although I may be biased as I have known Adam for several years, I was impressed with his professionalism, attention to detail, and ease to work with considering I live abroad. He also expressed great flexibility to work with our specific needs and budget. The photos turned out fun and fabulous!

Adam was amazing!! He was very accommodating with initial meeting times. He brought samples of his work to show us. He gave us suggestions on times and how to do the wedding photos. After our first meeting with Adam our choice was made. He made the payments simple and easy by sending us an invoice to pay. The day of the wedding Adam showed us he was an expert. Before the ceremony he was taking photos and never was in the way or an inconvenience. He also got some amazing shots during the ceremony and was never in the way. During the reception he got photos of everyone and everything. Afterwards took the time to get a few more photos of just the bride and groom. After everything was done we met up and discussed wedding albums, metal prints and canvas prints. The prices were great. The wedding album and the canvas photo look amazing. The metal print he suggested of me and my groomsmen was perfect!! Adam is THE BEST wedding photographer out there without a doubt.

When I went looking for a photographer I used the same search engine I did for my photo-booth. When I got the results I called each one and found that Adam was the most personable and I felt an instant connection with him and I asked him then that I would love for him to be our photographer. He answered all of my questions and was very professional and made me feel at ease during a time that was turning out to be stressful. When we met with Adam the first time it was at a time and place in Virginia that was convenient for us since he is in Maryland and we live in Virginia. Adam brought lots of information to show and share which made planning a lot easier. We spoke several times leading up to our wedding to make sure things were going well and to make sure he got all the details in order. On the day of our wedding Adam arrived early at the church and was ready to go. He hit the ground running and didn’t stop all day. Adam took amazing pictures all day and they turned out amazing. He took pictures of us, the bridal party and all of our guests and he even had taken some photos that we didn’t even know he had taken. He was there in the forefront of everything going on and yet sometimes you didn’t even know he was there taking photos. Then while we were on our honeymoon he sent us a slideshow of some of his favorite photographs and they were amazing. And when it came time to go through the photos to put into the wedding album he picked most of them but he made sure that we could change , add or remove any of them if we wanted. The album turned out fantastic Adam is truly amazing and awesome photographer and a great man so if you need one for any type event Adam Lowe is who you should pick. Thank you Adam for everything.

Adam Lowe and his company provided a most professional experience. Our wedding album was just beautiful. I highly recommend his work. I would use his services again.
Kathy G.
We would highly recommend Adam to all of our friends and family. We found Adam through a google search because we were having a destination wedding and were unfamiliar with photographers in the Baltimore area. Adam was very responsive, extremely accommodating and patient with our requests before, during and after the event! He was with us from early afternoon the day of the wedding until late that evening, and then sent us a video montage of our wedding pictures within 24 hours. Glad we found him!
Kathy L.
Adam is a true pro who will deliver all the shots you’d expect — and his expert eye will deliver shots that you didn’t expect but are VERY glad to have. He’s very personable and works well not just with the wedding party but with guests and vendors as well.

My latest project is the second on which I’ve worked with Adam. Adam has consistently provided our company with exactly what we’ve requested with minimal coordination on my end. His eye for our visual needs is spot on for a combination of function, detail and beauty. I will continue to hire Adam for all of my photography needs in his area. He is very easy to work with and always exceeds our expectations.
Kim B.
Adam Lowe’s ability to capture the emotional moment while ensuring a well composed and perfectly lit shot is proved time and again for our organization. Because of the consistently high quality of Adam’s photography we have redesigned our website home page to feature Adam’s images. His images of our members speak volumes about what its like to belong to our organization, which is a critical marketing advantage for prospective members. I fully endorse Adam Lowe. Thank you, Adam for all you do.
David D.
Adam has donated his time and talents to photograph many of our fundraising events. He is a pleasure to work with, very professional, and takes great shots. We love working with him!
Jenna H.
As a real estate agent, I know firsthand that quality photos make the difference between listings that sell quickly and listings that sit on the market forever. Adam knows how to best present a property’s features, offers suggestions, and goes the extra mile, even if it means a return trip at times to capture better light, better weather, or a different angle. He works with me to ensure my client and I are thrilled with the results. Adam Lowe is not only a great photographer, he is an asset to my business and an integral part of my team!
Carmen M.
Adam has photographed a number of events for the Greater Silver Spring Chamber of Commerce and his work is amazing! Not only is he a consummate professional behind the camera and his pictures wonderful, but his turn around time is extremely quick and allows us to use them our best advantage. I highly recommend using him for any event large or small!
Stephanie H.
Adam was amazing to work with and made us feel comfortable on camera! He has an eye for capturing just the right shot. I would highly recommend him to my family, friends and business associates.
Valerie Y.
Adam was a joy to work with, and delivered a really fantastic video. Highly recommend.
Michelle M.
Choosing a photographer for an event is an important one. How fortunate for us that we chose Adam, he never disappointed in any area. His work is creative, informative and clear and just love looking at the photos over and over. Never tire of looking at his work. How lucky we were to having Adam document our event. If you are in the position to choose, choose Adam. You will not regret it.
Jane R.
Adam was a joy to work with. He was punctual, considerate, kind and has a great eye for great photos. I would definitely have him photograph my upcoming events.
Jackie S.
Adam’s work is excellent. I can’t see recommending another photographer for any event.
Guy B.
In a metropolitan area such as teh DC Metro area, it is very easy to find a photographer. The difficult part is finding a very good photographer whose work is superb, and who makes clients feel relxed and comfortable during a photo session. Adam is one of those rare individuals who has the personality to make his clients feel special and when his work is done, feel extraordinarily happy. Although I used Adam for my professional head shot as well as for professional real estate photography, having seen the rest of his body of work, I recommend him highly for these services and more!
Bruce C.
Adam was extremely professional and quick to respond to my request! I asked Adam to put a proposal together for me and it was in my inbox before the end of the evening. He was very good with the children and got my pictures to me quickly, they were beautiful. I would highly recommend Adam’s work to anyone needing a great photographer.
Debbie B.
Adam is a FANTASTIC photographer! He has photographed all of our organization’s events for the past several years, and he is just spectacular! Goes above and beyond any photographer we’ve ever used before!
Laura A.
Adam was great to work with- he knows how to get the personality in the shot.
Roberta B.
Adam was incredibly professional and quick. He knew what to ask for and produced high-quality headshots for my social media platforms.
Melanie G.
It was easy, convenient and very professional working with Adam. I’ve referred him to many others!
Mary J.
Adam was a pleasure to work with. He was patient, asked the right questions, listened to what I had to say, and offered great advice to get the best shots possible. I was more than pleased with his services and I would recommend him in a heartbeat!
Marcy S.
Adam is among the best event photographers with whom I have ever worked. He is professional, punctual, prompt in turning around the final product, and highly personable. He has photographed ribbon cuttings, networking events, awards dinners, trade shows, and more for our organization, and we have always been thrilled with the results. Not only does he create great “staged” shots of people and products, but he also has an amazing capacity to capture the kind of candids that reflect the personality of each event. He is a key asset to our team and gets our highest recommendation.
Jane T.
Adam was wonderful to work with and I will not hesitate to utilize his services again. I would recommend him to anyone needing a photographer.
Julie A.
I asked Adam to shoot some action photos of a high school girls field hockey team , which I was training during summer break . He was professional,fun and engaging with the team !

As a fitness trainer, who specializes in group/team training , I strongly recommend Adam !!

Jim N.
Really awesome guy. A pleasure to work with. Everything went excellent with my surprise proposal. He had the pictures returned to us in less than 24 hours which was amazing because my fiance obviously wanted to post all those pictures on social media ASAP. The pricing was amazing based on some other quotes that I received.
Nikolay I.
Adam is both a great photographer and a customer-oriented service provider. I highly recommend his work and found him very easy to work with. His rates are competitive, and his studio in Rockville is conveniently located. I used Adam’s services for a professional headshot and will definitely contact him for future event photography
Matthew N.
I am a home stager – Adam has taken photographs of my staged properties before and he does a fabulous job. Last week, he filmed a video for me to be used on my website and the experience was fantastic from start to finish. I have received so many compliments where people have said how impressive and professional the video looks. Adam made the process easy, and helped ease my anxiety to film this video – he was great! I highly recommend Adam Lowe Photography.
Jessica F.
Adam has photographed two of our jobs that we’ve built in his area over the past year or so. I wish we could do more work there so he could photograph it! I put in minimal effort to coordinate a shoot with him, I tell him basically what I’m looking for and he delivers beyond my expectations every time. He’s great to work with and makes it really easy on me to get the project completed. I’ve had tight budgets on these projects but Adam has worked with me to get what I need that fit my budget. Quick turnaround, great photos and a great guy to work with – what more could we ask for. I will hire him every time I get the chance.
Kim T.
I commissioned Adam to do a shoot of one of our job sites with an extremely short turnaround. From my very first conversation with him, Adam took control of the job, coordinating the shoot with our installer who was only on the jobsite for a few hours. I gave Adam very basic instructions of the shots I wanted to get. I was amazed that he sent me some of the photos to view within a couple of hours of the shoot. What he delivered was an incredible mixture of artistically beautiful photographs that also detailed our specific work. I could not be more pleased with the product that he supplied to me. Adam made my job easy, from start to finish. He worked under a crazy time line and still produced top quality work. Our job photos are often the first impression of our company’s work to people and businesses who are not familiar with us – that makes them a valuable commodity. I highly recommend Adam’s work and look forward to working with him on other projects as well.
Kim T.
My husband-to-be and I recently attended a silent auction benefitting the Breast Cancer Fund that was put on by a fabulous group called the LUNA Chix; we were the fortunate winners of a 2 hour photography session that was generously donated to the event by Adam. I spoke with Adam on the phone the next day and we easily scheduled our engagement photo session at Great Falls in Maryland. Adam was very knowledgable, advising us on the best times to take scenic pictures based both on ideal lighting conditions and low visitor traffic. Once we started taking pictures, Adam helped us to relax and be ourselves (as we initially found that taking engagement photos was quite hilarious). We climbed rocks, walked out into the water, and found unique hidden places amongst the landscape with stunning scenic views; our pictures turned out beautifully. Thank you for everything Adam!
Julie V.
I hired Adam Lowe to have professional photographs of me for my family and career and he did an outstanding job! He was not only professional, but he was patient and understanding in explaining all the things needed for the photos. The photos he took were absolutely beautiful! He took great care of so many details in the photo shoot which made the entire experience positive and amazing.

I would highly recommend Adam for any photograph that you are interested in taking. He will bring out the best in you as he did in me.

Linda A.
We had a couples photo shoot with Adam in November of this year. I cannot say enough good things about him!! He was extremely professional, yet so personable at the same time! My husband and I were nervous about doing a couples shoot, since neither of us had done professional photos since our wedding. Adam put us completely at ease and made us laugh the entire time. It was like hanging out with a friend more than awkwardly posing for photos. Before the shoot, Adam kept in constant contact with us, asking us what style of photos we liked and where we wanted to take our pictures. He was completely amenable to coming to a location close to us (since we live in Washington, DC), and even drove us to another location that he thought would be perfect for us!

After the shoot, his turnaround time was immediate! We got to see proofs within the next couple days, and had access to our online album within a week. And this was around Thanksgiving!! The photos were absolutely beautiful! He was able to capture the natural chemistry between my husband and me, which made for amazing shots. Adam really goes the extra mile for his customers, and that is really what makes a wonderful photographer. Shooting good photos takes a skill, that is for sure, but you can’t shoot a good photo without having something to shoot! Adam makes sure that his customers (most, I’m sure are not professional models) are completely at ease, producing natural and beautiful shots. I absolutely recommend him for anyone looking for a family photographer, and definitely plan on using him again in the future.

Tara K.
Our company hired Adam to take photos to be used in a magazine ad as well as on our website. Adam was extremely professional and courteous. The end result exceeded our expectations.
Troy B.
Our company hired Adam to take photos at our Color in Motion 5K race. He did everything we asked for and was very professional, and his photos were excellent. I would recommend him to anyone looking to hire a talented, and professional photographer.
Jared C.
I offer a training and agility class at my dog daycare facility and Adam took the most amazing pictures of the class. He did a great job capturing the dogs in action going over the jumps and getting great interactive pics of the owners and their dogs. Adam is very professional and incredibly talented.
Terry W.
As a visual artist I requested Adam S. Lowe for taking photographs of my artworks.
He came to photograph my work in my own studio. He brought all his equipment, took time to set the lighting and made sure that he did several tests.

As he worked he showed me the results on a computer and we could discuss the colors and sharpness as well as the sensitivity to surface textures that is so important in my work.

I was impressed by his professionalism, and the result was excellent. Clear, clean images that present my art to galleries in the best possible manner.

I strongly recommend Adam S.Lowe as a photographer.

Joseph C.
Adam was very professional, good at giving directions and worked with my needs and concerns to get a professional headshot.
