Adam, I just saw the wedding photos… I want to tell you they are awesome.  Where can I post a review.  I would be thrilled to serve as a reference for you.  You did a beautiful job.  I hope you enjoyed yourself as well.  I was so pleased to see you stay through the entire event and presumed it was because you were enjoying yourself.  I am so pleased with the photographs.
Anna A., Former US Treasury Secretary
“Adam is an incredibly talented, professional photographer. He elevated our event through his ‘pre-event’ management and communication and strong attention to details at the event (both the interpersonal exchanges and photos of the details/gifts/food, etc). After the event, he sent us high quality images to use on social media in less than 12 hours, and all images edited within a few business days. Adam’s services exceeded our expectations. I highly recommend him for any photography needs.”
“I wanted to thank you for your excellent quality of work with the recent professional photographs.  Not only am I pleased with the end result (even better than I expected), but the process was painless.   I must admit I was not looking forward to the photography session, however, you really put me at ease and made it enjoyable.  Thank you. “
K. Gonzalez
“Thanks so much for the email and the help with the experience. We LOVE the pictures…PS- THE VIDEO IS AMAZING”
D. Cinelli
“As a visual artist I requested Adam S. Lowe for taking photographs of my artwork. 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.”
J. Cassar, Artist
“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. “
“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.”
T. Whitehouse, The Dog Stay
“Thank you so much for capturing our special day yesterday!! The pictures and video are incredible!”
A. Riley
“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.”
J. Cooke, Color in Motion
“I love the photos. Adam made me look like a rock star agent. My clients are very happy”
V. Capone, RE/MAX
“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 !!”
“Adam was very professional, good at giving directions and worked with my needs and concerns to get a professional headshot.”.
Sally N.
“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.”

“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.”
