Crede was wonderful to work with for my wedding. Prior to the wedding day, he was very responsive to all of my questions, and on the day of the wedding, he did a wonderful job of being present and capturing the moment but not being intrusive as the event went along. After the wedding, I found that I needed some photos ahead of when we had agreed that I would receive the images, and Crede was very accommodating to this unexpected request. And when I did receive all the photos, I was absolutely thrilled with the images and the vast amount he gave me. Very happy to recommend Crede!Sent on 11/14/2016

Crede was absolutely wonderful to work with. He was on time, professional, non-intrusive, and took fabulous pictures. We have so many picture to go through and all of them are frame worthy, no idea how I will only pick a few to hang up. I recommend Crede to anyone!Sent on 09/17/2015

We got married at Deep Creek, which was several hours away from where we live, so we were not able to meet all our vendors before booking them. All of Crede's review are great and he was recommended by our venue, so I didn't mind going with someone we hadn't met, because they were vouching for him. I also liked that he has photographed our venue before, knew the good spots, knew how lighting would be, etc.Sent on 08/26/2015
We talked with Crede over the phone and made our deposit, we didn't actually get to meet until a few months before the wedding. He is so kind, warm and welcoming. We felt very comfortable with him. We met him at his studio and he showed us past weddings he had done and we talked about what we liked and were going for. Crede is the only photographer for his company and he is the one who will be doing your wedding. There are other companies that you meet one person and then they send other inexperienced photographers out for your wedding. He did not have a second photographer and that was fine with us. He was constantly moving and didn't stop taking pictures.
I agree with everything the other reviewers said about Crede's style and professionalism. He also does commercial photography and really knows his stuff when it comes to lighting, framing and after editing. He was full of ideas for poses. He knew which spots to go to on the property, exactly where to stand so the light hit us right, where to look and how to position ourselves. He also took our suggestions of scenery that we wanted to incorporate and then came up with creative ways to do it. His passion was obvious and he is a real artist in setting up the photos. My parents were impressed with his energy in taking the pictures, at one point he was laying on his back on the dance floor, Another he was totally in the bushes to get the perfect angle of us for the picture.
Crede sent me a few pictures a couple days after the ceremony. They look gorgeous and I can't wait to see the rest.

Crede was amazing!! His photo's are beautiful, he has an eye for the right light and background. He was professional and yet comfortable to be around. He is in our opinion, the best photographer in the Deep Creek, MD area. I looked at numerous professionals in the area, and Crede really stood out. His work is beautiful, the amount of time he was with us on our day, and the attention to detail with all the photo's is outstanding. He has a great mix of traditional and unconventional poses and locations; he gives the customer what you ask for, while helping if your unsure. He captured our day beautifully and we are so thankful for his time, talent, and presence. Crede is worth every penny you pay and your pictures will be also. I encourage all brides and grooms to remember that at the end of the day, all you have is your pictures. Pick the best photographer so you have your memories forever. For us, that photographer was Crede.Sent on 02/25/2010

My wife and I were very pleased with our photograher Crede Calhoun. He demonstrated his professionalism numerous times before, during and after the wedding. The pictures he took were absolutely beautiful. I feel that several of the pictures were award quality pictures. My daughter and son-in-law were very pleased with him as well. Our photographer spent more hours then necessary seeing that the wedding video was the way that we wanted it and provided extra copies of the video at no charge to us. If you want a photographer that cares about your special occasion and will listen to what you have to say, then Vision Quest Studios is the place you need to call and book your next special event.Sent on 02/01/2010

Crede, was a better photographer that I could have ever asked for. He had great ideas for pictures, and when we had them back and in the album we were thrilled. Two years later, people still talk about what a great job he did! Thanks Crede!!Sent on 02/05/2010

Crede was very attentive during the wedding. He was taking many different pictures throughout the wedding which we loved. He had many different ideas for pictures which we really liked. I have only seen a few of the finished pictures since the wedding was only 3 weeks ago but they were done very nicely. Looking forward to seeing the finished product. We also had the videography done also. Very professional and good choice.Sent on 09/18/2011

We are absolutely thrilled with our wedding photos!Sent on 02/01/2010
Crede has a real talent for capturing the right image and lighting, regardless of the shot. The colors are magnificent, the lighting perfect, overall quality is superior!
Most important to us, Crede made everyone feel comfortable (which is difficult when you're being posed for formal shots!), and it shows in his work.
He took many candids and "action" shots, which showeed the enthusiasm and joy we all felt. They will be a constant reminder of our special day!
Crede is flexible, patient, understanding, and incrediby easy to work with. He took photos at our wedding that truly captured everyone's personalities, as well as the pure joy and happiness of the day.
We highly recommend Crede and his terrific work to anyone looking for superior quality and excellent value.
