    From Richard:

    Dear Jeff,

    You are a superstar!

    One of the highlights of my son’s Bar Mitzvah was having you as our event photographer.

    Aside from having a great eye for photography, you’re an expert at the nuances of getting various family members to pose for the camera and keeping everyone calm and collected.

    Above all, you’re an absolute delight as a person: always smiling, positive and high-energy and ready-to-go. The same goes for your assistant, who was terrific to have at our events.

    We loved seeing the photos online of the pre-event shoot (so good they made it into the slideshow), and the framed family photo that you gave us at our evening party, just a few hours after our lunch event, truly astonished us all, grandparents included.

    We can’t wait to have you back for another event!

    Jeff, you and your team were such a pleasure to work with! Very warm, calm, playful, conscientious, and talented! We couldn't be happier, and definitely wish to work with you again at the next bar mitzvah in 2020!

    From Michelle:


    I just wanted to thank you so, so much for making our celebration so special. I can't tell you how many people complimented me about "our amazing photographer". My parents couldn't believe how you were able to be everywhere at once and how tirelessly you worked.

    Also, it was such an amazing surprise to come in and see our Bar Mitzvah's picture holding the Torah. Wow! It is in his room and brings a smile to my face every time I look at it.

    Thank you so much, Jeff! I really have no words to describe my appreciation. We can't wait to work with you for our other son in 2019 and you know our youngest can't wait for hers : ).

    I was referred to Jeff by my dear friend, Angela Allan. He did such great work with her daughters' graduation pictures, I knew even two years ago that I wanted Jeff to do my daughter Sabrina's senior pictures.

    The weekend prior to the photo shoot was a very sad and stressful weekend for Sabrina. I could tell she was not her normal bubbly self. It wasn't long before she was comfortable with Jeff. She relaxed and we spent a few fabulous hours all around the City that we love!

    She felt very special and Jeff truly captured the essence and beauty of Sabrina. She had so much fun and managed to forget the tragedy of the previous weekend for just a few few hours.

    Jeff has a great eye and a way about him that is so engaging. We can't wait to ask him to work with us again for dance photos!

    Thank you, Jeff, for the amazing pictures and great memories.

    I was first introduced to Jeff Bartee many years ago when he took pictures of my daughter at a gymnastics meet. They are the best pictures I have as her as a gymnast. So when I received her Bat Mitzvah date, Jeff was my first phone call. Well, Jeff did not disappoint, in fact, he wowed us even more. His pre photo shoot gave us pictures the most beautiful pictures of our daughter and she had a blast being a model for a few hours. On the day of Jeff is just delightful to have around on what is a jittery kind of day. He is always smiling and in particular makes the kids feel special and happy. The portraits for the day came out great. But the candids were just the BEST. Jeff captured the entire feeling of the day from start to finish. I did not realize how much fun people had until I saw Jeff's pictures. I did not realize how much fun I had. The emotions of the day from start to finish are captured in photos and thats the memory you want to cherish. That is why you hire a Jeff Bartee!

    on behalf of Linda and Maggie:

    I researched my options for my senior portrait shoot and my mom and I are so happy we chose Jeff! I was very excited about the shoot, but really didn’t know what to expect and was a little nervous. We contacted him by email and he responded immediately. His instructions and guidance put me at ease as we planned the big day . He was always available by text, email, or phone if we had a question. He was a true professional during the shoot, with many great suggestions on clothing, poses, and settings. We ended the day with hundreds of photos to choose from – a very difficult, but a great problem to have! The photos are amazing! My family will cherish them for years to come!
    We’ve never used a professional photographer for our Christmas card photo, but now we plan to use Jeff!

    I absolutely LOVED having Jeff take my senior photos. This was my first time working with a professional photographer and let me tell you, he made the experience one to remember. He's very professional and has a great personality, which made the shoot super fun. He also has a creative eye when it comes to taking photos; he had me pose in different ways in different places that I had never thought of before.
    When I received the photos, I was blown away. They were amazing. Not only was the quality of the pictures incredible, but the fact that he sent them in such a short period of time was awesome. Usually, I have to wait 6 weeks for proofs, but I received Jeff's pictures in less than a week after the shoot.
    I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to have my pictures taken by him. Hopefully, I'll get to work with him again in the future!

    Jeff recently took senior photos of my twin girls and we were so impressed! We had heard so many fabulous things about him that when it came time for senior pictures, we knew we had to choose Jeff. While the pictures on his website speak for themselves, the whole experience was
    even better than imagined! Jeff is very passionate about his job and has such a creative eye. He handled everything in a professional and polite manner and it was such a fun and adventurous day. I found Jeff to be very reasonably priced, especially considering the amount of time he spent to present us with such artistic and high quality photos. The pictures are breathtaking and we will cherish them for many years to come!
