Client Testimonials

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:

From the 1st day I contacted them they were great. Very professional. They had exactly what I was looking for. They literally captured every min of my wedding in my pictures. The video quality is amazing. I would use them over and over again for any major events. You will not be disappointed if you choose them. Memories are something people can’t take from you and when you add pictures to them it makes them that much more special.


Wedding Photography and Videography

THE BEST VIDEOGRAPHY TEAM I COULD HAVE EVER ASKED FOR!!! I mean you can see how they captured the face beats, true moments, and overall feel of our wedding. It was just as it appears, AMAZING!!! Optikool illusions was the smartest decision for capturing our wedding on video. Like, I can’t stop watching the reel! The team is professional, kind, and always kept open communication. Thank you again for everything!


Wedding Videography

I’m so glad I hired Optikool illusions to do my graduation photos. I was hesitant to have photos taken at all, as I am not a model and didn’t know how to pose or anything, but my photographer was extremely helpful and thorough. I was able to take more shots than I expected, and the final photos look amazing. I highly recommend and would definitely book again!


Graduation Shoot

Optikool illusions are professional and a joy to work with. Their team provided us with fresh ideas and guidance throughout our entire photo shoot. I look forward to using their services again!


Maternity Shoot

I have had the opportunity to work with optikool illusions and by far it is the greatest photography experience I have ever had. They are very professional and great at what they do. I would recommend them to anybody for any occasion. Grade A job.


Maternity Shoot

This team is a gift sent from heaven! You all did a great job, the pictures are amazing and we are loving them all. The videos created are mind blowing and we will charish these memories forever. We are happy that we went with Optikool illusions!
