What our clients are saying

Jenna

I had such a great time with Verismo!! They made it so much fun and captured exactly what I was looking for. I was able to get my make-up professionally done, and we went to a beautiful location. Even when it started sprinkling a little, we grabbed an umbrella and had some fun with it. (Those pictures just happen to be my favorite, as well!!) I LOVE the pictures I got. I will definitely be recommending Verismo Studio to all my friends.

Newborn Piper

Pamela is so easy to work with! She is relaxed and flexible which makes my kids relax immediately and we end up getting great shots. She is willing to work to get those special pictures. I am incredibly happy with the way my newborn shoots have gone with her in particular, because she takes her time and is so good at handling and positioning newborns! We moved and couldn’t find anyone with a style like Verismo Studio so we flew them to [Florida] to do our newborn pictures and are so happy we did! Thank you Verismo!

– Tina, Piper’s Mom

Peterson Family

Both Pamela and Susan were amazing to work with. Not only do they have exceptional talents they are patient, flexible, and display integrity in everything they do. They had lots of great ideas for pictures. And were very creative with so many people. We had an amazing experience and would HIGHLY recommend Verismo Studio for all of your photography needs.

Kaden

Pamela is always flexible about location, etc. She is always prompt about reminding me about the “best time for the sun” so we can capitalize on getting the very best quality photos. Verismo has captured so many great memories in my son’s first two years. I highly recommend giving these young ladies an opportunity to capture your precious moments as well. They are personable and professional. Give them a try—you will be pleased!

– Kelly, Kaden’s Mom

Rebecca

Thank you Pamela and Susan for not only the beautiful pictures of Chelsea, but also for the wonderful day that we spent in Stillwater. From the [makeup] makeover to all the fun we had, it was truly an unforgettable day.

Erika

Getting my senior portraits done by Verismo Studio was a perfect way to start my senior year. I felt comfortable, and better yet I felt beautiful all day long. My personality was evident in my pictures, and I couldn’t have been happier with the results.
