Sigmon Taylor Photography has been photographing my business and my family for the past 16 years.  Its been a wonderful partnership and an even more amazing friendship.  We pride ourselves at Holiday Chevrolet Cadillac with delivering customer service that you can’t get anywhere else.  Sigmon Taylor photography has that same business model and it’s a relationship you don’t find everyday.  Most people do not look forward to picture day…but here at the dealership, picture day is filled with excitement and pride.

Monica and Michael have been taking our family photos since the children were babies, and now they soon will be going off to college! Each memory they have captured has been special and completely unique.  We always look forward to seeing what new ideas they come up with every year!

Monica and Michael are simply amazing!!! My last two professional headshots were taken by Monica, she has a way of making you look 10 years younger….I always get so many compliments. They also did a family portrait for us in Colonial Williamsburg, I have it hanging on the wall in our new house…this is something I have wanted to do for years and I can’t help but smile every time I walk by it. Because we love Monica and Michael so much, we had them do portraits of our fur babies Declan and Galen, they look so sophisticated hanging in the “Man Cave”. Thank you, thank you for always surpassing my expectations!!

We are thrilled with the way in which Michael & Monica were able to capture the life and heart of our family.  Through their animation and patience they were able to engage our four young children, making the session a delight. The portraits were stunning, unlike any we’ve ever owned, and we will hang them on our walls for years to come!

Working with Monica and Michael is like working with close friends or family members,  that’s how intimately they connect with their subjects.   They have that special gift, unique to true artists, to turn a moment in time into a priceless heirloom as opposed to a mere photograph.

Our family has had the great pleasure of working with Monica and Michael for numerous photo shoots over the course of the last seven years. Each occasion is a reminder of the professionalism, attention to detail, and artistic brilliance of their work. They have a true gift for capturing their subjects at their best, whether that be a child’s smile, a loving embrace, or the pensive devious expression of a four-legged family member. We look forward to collaborating with them to create many more mementos of our family’s journey.

Our friendship with Monica and Michael has grown right alongside our family, and portrait sessions have become a sweet part of our yearly rhythm – crazy, loud, fun and  magically finishing with the perfect glimpse of all of us in that particular time.

My family has worked with Monica and Michael many times over the years, from family photos when my kids were little, to professional photos, pics of our dogs, and a wonderful family portrait that I truly cherish.   The difference with Sigmon Taylor is that they are true artists!  Their work brings so much emotion to the process and the finished product.  I will not use anyone else to capture the special moments of our lives.  I truly appreciate them and their artistry.

At Pyramid Roofing, we understand quality craftsmanship and outstanding customer service. That’s why when it comes to celebrating the most important thing to me – family – I only trust the very best. Monica and Michael have photographed my family for years.

A picture is a picture is a picture, but a great portrait, well that is pure magic. Monica and Michael create magic in each portrait they take.  They find just the right lighting or the perfect background. They see what the rest of us cannot see. Monica and Michael have photographed my family for the past eight years and I fully expect they will chronicle the Bledsoe household in the future. A picture is a picture is a picture, but I prefer the magic Michael and Monica create.

We first met Monica 15 years ago. When I saw the proofs, I knew we had stumbled onto someone special! I LOVED every one of them! Since then, I have had the pleasure of working with both Monica and Michael. The studio has photographed all of our special milestones- my parents’ 50th wedding anniversary, each child’s senior portrait, and lots of Christmas cards/portrait gifts. The end result is always so much more than I could ever hope for. Monica and Michael have so much warmth and energy during a session that it is always a fun day- even our dogs enjoy it! What sets their work apart from the other photographers we have used is the lighting, and their ability to anticipate the very slight changes in a face as someone smiles. They can capture that perfect moment and it is true portrait art. I recommend Monica and Michael all of the time, and have enjoyed giving gift certificates to friends and family for portrait sessions. I love hearing how our friends have enjoyed working with the studio as much as we have!!

I first met Monica at a special event that Sigmon Taylor Photography was doing to raise money for the Norfolk SPCA.  Her work was absolutely gorgeous, like nothing I had ever encountered.  My pups have had sessions with Michael and her multiple times over the last 4 years, and every time I am in awe of the outcome.  They both have amazing skill with the camera and an incredible knowledge of photography so that the result is a quality that is simply unparalleled.  I don’t hesitate to drive over an hour to Williamsburg to use their studio. Their professionalism and philanthropy toward animals has made me a client for life.

This past May, Monica did a location session at Christopher Newport University for my son’s graduation photos…she trekked all over campus hunting down the perfect shots – it was a wonderful experience, and a memory our family will treasure, along with the stunning photos, for many years to come.

I wholeheartedly recommend Monica and Michael to anyone looking for the “wow” factor!  Their work is amazing, and their attention to those oh-so-important details is second to none.  I wouldn’t trust anyone else when it has to be perfect – they handle all of our agents’ professional photos!

Monica and Michael have been our family photographers for over a decade.  They have captured images of three generations that I will cherish for the rest of my life.  From backyard shots of our immediate family (including a litter of puppies) to graduation pictures of my kids to an incredibly well orchestrated Christmas Eve session with 23 members of our extended clan, I will forever be grateful to them for the memories.  Because their work isn’t just about family portraits.  Those images will be treasured by our family for years to come and will help us to remember the best times of our lives.

We can’t say enough great things about our experience with Monica and Michael. Their attention to detail and creative mindset helped capture a unique portrait of our staff, along with creating a Live Portrait video, for us to use in marketing materials and more. Our customers can’t stop raving about it, as it helps showcase the friendly staff members they speak to over the phone!

I’ve worked with Sigmon Taylor Photography for more than three years.  Each time I need new photography, Michael is my “go to” expert.  Not only is the quality of the finished product stunning, the photographs convey the emotion that’s so hard for most photographers to capture.  Michael develops an instant rapport with his subjects and creates a trust that makes everyone feel like their images are in the best possible hands.
