Mr. Penton is the guy to go with

Penton Studios is the best! Mr. Penton is one of the most talented photographers I have ever met. For our engagement photos he said it would only be 30 minutes but we meaning Mr. Penton, my fiance and I were having so much fun we took pictures for over an hour. They turned out so amazing Eric had to take the book away from me because I couldn’t put it down! He is not only great at what he does but he is a great person. Even my husband’s older brother went with Mr. Penton. My husband’s older sister went with someone else but they did not turn out as well. She regrets her decision. We are beyond happy with what he did for us. Our wedding photos were even better than we expected. There was no loud clicking sound during the ceremony. Planning weddings or any major event can be overwhelming but if you want the real deal, go with Penton Studios.

Bray/Hauber-Oyler wedding

My son and daughter in law could not have asked for a better photographer. Marlin was always professional and the engagement, bridal pictures and wedding pictures were amazing.

I found Marlin Penton at a bridal show and he was offering an amazing bridal package with engagements, bridals, and wedding day coverage with albums. After doing a lot of research with ALL of the local photographers, his deal was by far the best! Marlin has been in the business for a very long time, so I had complete faith that he was the man for the job. My pictures are absolutely beautiful!!! Marlin takes his time, very easy to work with, and will do almost anything to get the right shot. I soooo cannot wait to get my albums back!

Marlin and I work have been working an annual event together for the past two years his professionalism is great. It's not that often that I work with a photographer that cares about what you as the videographer is trying to capture. He has the same goal as I do and That's giving the client the product possible. .
