Chura's Photography did an awesome job at my wedding! His professionalism was outstanding. My album was unique and beautiful, and all the special effect pictures were awesome. He even did a great job with our engagement photos. Overall Matt and I would recommend him to friends and family even strangers that were looking for nice pictures and the experience. Tara M



Chura's Photography did a fantastic job on my daughters 1st communion portraits! I came to the Chura's for 1st communion photographs and I decided to get my 3 girls photographed together. The girls had a lot of fun. The pictures were fantastic. I would definitely come back again. Helga S.




I really didn't know what to expect going into the session. The session was easy and everyone had a lot of fun. Phil was patient and a pleasure to work with. He guided us each step of the way and gave us more choices than we ever expected. We couldn't ask for a more beautiful portrait. We will highly recommend him.Dr. Dave and Kim S.





My husband saw the sign and we liked the website. Phil picked the location and the time of day for 23 people in a photograph. He reviewed the clothing to wear and the session was easy and fun. The previews looked fantastic. The location and the background made the images look like a painting. After being treated to a multimedia slide show in the studio, we were able to view the photos on-line at home. We were able to move heads around to get the final image just the way we liked it. The only difficulty we had was there was so many great photos to choose from. Phil was very flexible and had great ideas through-out the whole process. I would highly recommend him for any photo situation. Ellen A




I am remiss about sending you this testimonial sooner. Never in my life could I imagine winning a portrait session at your studio that included my two children, my two dogs, my husband and I that came out so fabulously. Isn't it the number 1 rule of photographers, "never work with kids and pets"? Whoever made that rule hasn't met you! Our photographs were fantastic! We walked into your studio with 2 kids who were fighting with each other, 2 -100 pound dogs not yet a year old, my husband reluctant for yet another one of Sue's "great ideas" and me frazzled. Please show people this letter and then show them the end result! I defy anyone to guess what state we were in on arrival. But like magic, we stepped into the studio and as if on cue, the fights stopped, the puppies calmed, the photo shoot was quick and we have some great family memories! We used 1 photo for our Christmas cards last year and an enlargement for my rogues gallery! Since then, we have asked you to duplicate others of the kids, just the dogs and also prepare a professional head shot for me, all off the same photo shoot! What a photographer does with photos after the picture is actually taken is truly a work of art! Thanks again! We'll be back! Sue H.




"I first heard of Chura's through my work. I came initially for executive portraits about 4 years ago. Since then I moved to Portland Me, I have tried a few other photographers, but none as good as Chura. I came back to get it done right!" Jennifer E.





"Didn't know what to expect, but we had a blast! Pictures were awesome better than I had imagined. We surprised our parents - the expressions on their faces was priceless. I actually saw a tear or two in my mother's eyes." Courtney R




I think our photographs came out beautiful. Listen to the advice about clothing. It brings more attention to the face. The lighting was very well done. Colby D

"Portraits were first seen by a fellow student at school. We also vsited the website, the website was very helpful. Photographer was friendly and offered many different poses. He made everyone feel comfortable and he had a lot of patience. The atmosphere was wonderful and the slide show was great. He offered many suggestions for posing. The lighting was great and we had a lot of backgrounds to choose from. Chura’s Photography was very cooperative and also was able to make them look “magical.”. Stephanie B.





"We received a postcard stating we had won a family portrait photo session. Not having entered any drawing, we were skeptical!! (My brother put us in) We did decide to call and very glad we did! We decided to go to the studio after looking at the website. We did find "tips and hints" there not enough family photos on the website. After viewing the photos at the studio, we were very impressed. Each photograph had its own unique traits, but each one jumps out at like they are very alive!! The photo session was very casual. The surroundings are like you are in your own home. Not stuffy at all: Very relaxing. The slide show was terrific. The portraits were beautiful. They did show us at our best. As we looked at them we remarked how the real essence of each child was captured. We were glad of the different poses as one in particular was just perfect. Having never had a professional family portrait done before, we would definitely say JUST DO IT!! Your family is your most important asset. Do choose Chura's: you will treasure it!"




"I first met Mr. Chura at a school function. When I came into the studio, (I found) it was very easy to relax and easy to take my pictures. I felt very comfortable. Everything about my senior pictures was great! I loved how he captured my personality through my photographs. It was easy! Mr. Chura has a talent for great photographs."
