  • We had so much fun doing our engagement pictures with Juan! Thank you so much! All our friends and family went crazy after seeing the pictures. He was so fast and most nature. I’m so thankful that we were able to book him for our wedding in July!

  • Juan at Blue Elm photography went way above and beyond our expectations.  My fiance Thad and I wanted engagement pictures to capture this very important time in our lives. To make things interesting and challenging, we decided to include our two beloved dogs.  Juan was so patient and great with them. He was able to capture romantic pictures of Thad and I, and well as some fun, goofy ones.  My favorite part of all the pictures was Juan’s ability to capture those candid moments, even with our crazy dogs there!  He has great attention to detail and his editing process leaves you with a beautiful finished product.  We now have pictures that we will cherish for the rest of our lives. I can’t wait for the next chapter in our lives and I look forward to having Blue Elm Photography capture more special moments for us.

  • Blue Elm has been a part of our lives for many years. We trust them to capture all of our family moments and know that the end result will be nothing less than stunning. I especially appreciate their patience and commitment to photograph toddlers. I recommend them to anyone who is looking to capture their important moments.

  • Blue Elm Photography has captured special moments in our children’s faith life. They are more than portraits, as the details invite you to find out more of the story of that special day, and see, once more, the beauty, and the light and the grace of that day. And for that gift, we are grateful.

  • Juan did our family photos for us about four years ago. I had seen many of his photos from when he and his wife traveled and I could tell he just had an eye for capturing photos. He met us over at Town Green and took us to several spots for multiple poses. I took all the photos and had a photo book made, and we cherish the photos to this day.  He made the whole process enjoyable and captured many candid moments during the shoot that quickly became some of our favorites.

  • My family had a wonderful experience with Blue Elm Photography. Juan is a very passionate person/photographer who is very knowledgeable in his field and cares deeply for his profession and the people he photographs. My son is extremely shy with males and I was skeptical at first, but Juan overcame this with his outstanding patience and playful attitude. I was overly surprised at how many great shots we had to choose from, which is very hard to do with my son’s temperament. Juan was able to capture the natural spirit of my family throughout the whole shoot and has an incredible ability to find unique perspectives for beautiful shots. The images were of very high quality and surpassed any professional photos we have had done in the past. In addition, the prices are amazing for the quality of work and time received. I would definitely recommend Blue Elm Photography to all my family and friends.

  • Had a wonderful experience working with Juan from Blue Elm Photography. Working with a toddler and school age child together can have its challenges. Juan put my children at ease and the session was very playful and interactive. They were smiling and laughing throughout the session. Juan’s work reflected the spirit of my children beautifully. Highly recommend Blue Elm Photography!

  •   Juan with Blue Elm Photography is a true gem. He goes well beyond capturing a great shot. He has a designers eye that I believe allows him to create some of the most stunning portraits I have ever seen. What sets him apart is how he sees the world. He does not just capture “the shot” he captures the experience. The pictures of my daughter Aubrey are true works of art. I will be using Juan for many, many years to come.

  • Juan took photographs of my three year old daughter two years ago. Juan has an incredible gift as a photographer and his work is beautiful. He was always so professional, friendly, and patient with my little girl. I cherish the memories he was able to capture in his pictures. I look forward to many more sessions with him and Blue Elm Photography chronicling my family’s growth through his amazing pictures.

  • Blue Elm Photography, Juan Medrano, recently did a photo shoot for my daughter, Madi Dean. Madi has done photo shoots in the past for her music career, but felt most comfortable with Juan and his easy going spirit. He geared the photos toward her love for music and nature and paid careful attention to the purpose of the photo shoot. He never seemed rushed but was able to give suggestions in order to keep the session moving forward. Juan was very sensitive about Madi wanting to protect her hair/make up throughout the long shoot….even in the rain! He kept the mood light with compliments and sense of humor, but was serious about ensuring quality by never rushing a shot.

    We are so thankful to have the amazing quality of Blue Elm Photography as a resource for Madi Dean’s music. We are excited about launching her upcoming music releases with the awesome photos recently taken by Juan. Thank you Blue Elm Photography!

  •  Our experience with Blue Elm Photography was top notch. From beginning to end, we were treated professionally and very kindly. We had two sessions with Juan, who took our newborn’s photos and our family photos. He was fantastic with our baby. I did not feel hurried with the baby session in any way. We took our time and the end result is beautiful. Our family session was a lot of fun. The older children enjoyed themselves and we wondered why we hadn’t done this in the past! We are so happy with our photographs. They are such wonderful quality and will serve as beautiful memories for years to come. We will continue to have Juan photograph our family in the future. I highly recommend Blue Elm Photography, they are a joy to work with!

  • My family and I had the chance to have pictures taken by Blue Elm Photography earlier this year.  With a very shy 4 year old and a wild 1 year old I tend to set my expectations pretty low when it is time for family pictures. There was no need to do this with Juan as our photographer!!  He didn’t push my daughters to smile or pose when it was obvious they were not feeling the photo shoot.  He gave them time to loosen up and feel comfortable in the situation.  By some miracle he was able to get some good shots of them playing and interacting with us. We also got a great family shot that I will treasure forever!  As we were walking out Juan asked if we could take a few last pictures because he really wanted a shot of my daughters together.   I was worried that they were worn out, but photographer knows best so we gave it a shot!  The pictures we got from these last 10 minutes were amazing and my favorites of all!  I almost cried seeing how perfectly he captured their personalities through a picture.  He didn’t give up on getting the perfect shot….if that doesn’t make a photographer great then I don’t know what does.  When I showed the pictures to a friend she said it looked like we had taken them in and English tea garden.  It’s a true art to turn a regular park into a dream.  Thank you so much, Blue Elm!!!

  • The experience that we had on our Blue Elm photo shoot was both fun and fantastic. Juan was able to make us feel relaxed, so that our pictures came out looking natural. He was able to capture in our pictures the essence of us and the feelings and emotions that we have for each other. We are so happy with our pictures, and we look forward to having another photo shoot with Juan soon. I would highly recommend Blue Elm for anyone wanting to do a photo shoot because the experience is wonderful!
