Hey.You.Mr. Groom / Ms. Bride looking for a photographer to capture the biggest moment of your life. Stop what you are doing, scroll to the top of this page, message George NOW and pray that he is still available. I would give this man... 100 stars if I could. The experience of working together could not have been any smoother or more enjoyable. A little background on our story - I was planning a surprise proposal to my now fiancée in Newport and came across George's work. It immediately stood out from the other galleries I had browsed, and I was blown away not only by the quality of the photographs themselves, but the thoughtfulness and thoroughness that was evident in every shoot. I sent over a request and heard back almost immediately to confirm his availability, along with a plethora of other helpful blog posts and resources to help make the moment as special as possible. We were coming from out of state and had never been to Newport before - so being an expert on the area, George was quick to gave me a detailed run down of the ideal locations, pros and cons of each, and how to tailor our experience to achieve exactly what we were going for. It was also clear in speaking to him how passionate he was about the art of photography, and how eager he was to make this moment as special as possible for us. When the big day arrived everything went off without a hitch (other than me missing my mark by about 30 feet out of nervousness...) - George was hidden in plain sight pretending to be a nature photographer nearby us and when I got down to one knee, he turned the camera around to us and captured the moment perfectly. Afterward we held a mini photoshoot on the nearby grounds while we were still buzzing with excitement to capture that energy and relive the moment forever. He was able to send over 4 of our favorite photos within a few hours, and provided the remaining gallery the following day. Everything came out BEAUTIFUL. We have not stopped getting messages from friends and family complimenting how incredible the pictures are, and cannot stop flipping through them ourselves with a smile. I cannot possibly recommend George Ross more, he is the best photographer I have ever had the pleasure of working with. Thank you again so much George for the spectacular pictures and for making this moment so special!!read more

I needed some photos taken for a magazine article and I needed them on short notice. George was incredibly flexible and accommodating as far as schedule a time and location. On the day of the shoot, George demonstrated incredible vision... and skill in creating striking photos using otherwise mundane backdrops (office hallways and staircases). I received the edited photos shortly after the shoot. The entire process from start to finish was fun, friendly, and professional. I cannot recommend George enough.read more
George helped me surprise my brother and sister-in-law-to-be with beautiful photographs of their proposal (and a mini engagement shoot right after)!

Most importantly the photos were gorgeous.Thanks again George!read more
I wanted the best for my girlfriend, now fiancée, on this special day so I went with George because it seemed like he had a lot of experience with this.

George was fantastic for shooting an surprise engagement with my fiancée!

George is awesome. The process for getting a professional headshot was quick, easy, and relaxed. I'm not very photogenic, and we ended up with what I consider to be the best photo of myself in decades.
Top-notch professional! George went above and beyond on all fronts. On the afternoon of the proposal, George met me early at the Castle Hill Inn in Newport to walk through my game plan with me. Given his experience in the area, he was... able to provide helpful tips to ensure that the moment was captured perfectly. Even though I only remembered 5% of these in the moment, George's expertise provided a real differentiated experience vs. other photographers I've worked with in the past.Following the proposal, George had a few extra minutes before his drive home and offered to take additional engagement photos. This customer service was above and beyond and provided some of our favorite photos from the day. We could not be happier - we highly recommend George!read more
George is amazing! We had multiple phone conversations discussing our vision prior to meeting him. When we met (weeks before our wedding) it was like we were long lost friends. He listened and executed perfectly! He was the first vendor... (and person) to arrive the morning of our wedding. He captured the most beautiful and natural photos (formal and candid) of our wedding party, families, and loved ones. We can not say enough good things about George!read more

In preparation to proposing to my Girlfriend over Labor Day weekend, I was in search of a photographer who could capture the moment. It was early on in my research when I came across George, and I’m very glad that I did!

I asked George to do a family portrait session at Goddard park. He did an incredible job and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a talented photographer to capture a special moment. He arrived at the park early to find the... best locations with the best lighting to shoot, and he had a lot of ideas for creative poses, which was great because we didn’t want just the standard family photo. He got the photos to me immediately, which was so impressive, and his rate was also very reasonable. I would absolutely ask him to do more family portrait sessions for us. I LOVE how the photos came out.read more
Couldn't have been happier with our photos and the whole setup to our surprise proposal. George was thorough in preparation, captured great shots, and was very helpful and communicative throughout the entire process. Highly recommend.
George was extremely professional and very fun to have with us during our wedding rehearsal dinner!

I reached out to George at about the 11th hour for his help capturing one of the most significant moments of my life and was hoping we could make something basic work to remember the moment by. I knew nothing about Newport and didn't have... a whole lot of ideas so the plan was going to be challenging. Not only was George able to help me with idea's, we managed (in impeccable timing!) to put together a game plan that included different timing and location options that we'd be able to choose on the fly based on where the best conditions were at the time. And when it came time for it all happen, the plan worked flawless and the moment could not have felt more special! George was waiting just off in the distance and captured the moment beautifully, we could not have asked for it to have gone better! I can't thank George and his wonderful incite and expertise enough for making that day possible and making it special! I would highly recommend him and his excellent service to anyone looking for a wonderful experience capturing their special moment! I hope work with him again one day!read more
I contacted George to update my social media headshot photo. I cannot say enough great things about his professionalism, passion, confidence, and drive to get the best shots.

Thank you George for a great experience, we will do business again!read more
