“I have known Amy for close to 20 years and she has and will continue to be my “go to” person for so many areas. Her eye to detail, her professionalism, her creativity, and her follow-through. She is very passionate and it shows! I would 100% recommend her, 100% of the time! “

-Drew Hagen-Co-Founder, Executive Producer at InVision Communications

” Amy Tolbert is one of the finest and most professional photographers I have ever worked with. She has worked with me and my organization for the last 7 years as onsite photographer for our meetings and events. She is a pleasure to work with. She has that rare combination of super creativity and complete follow through. You won’t go wrong with Amy. She is the best.”

-Kappi Bowen-Sr. Manager Meetings and Tradeshows, Abbott Diabetes Care

“It was such a treat to work with Amy and Black Cat Photos. She works hard to understand what the client wants and then delivers the best results you have ever seen! “

-Larry Harper, Founder, Good Tidings Foundation

“Amy Tolbert has been a great creative force in both my professional and personal life. She has shot so many of my live concerts- capturing precious memories of great events that I’ll treasure forever. She also took on the task of shooting “fresh” headshots of me when I was not in the best place in life… but she grabbed all of the good in me, and I love those photographs! She also shot my daughter and I for our holiday card and captured both of our whimsical spirits and our close and wonderful relationship. I have recommended Amy to many of my friends who have hired her for their photographs as well. Everyone loves her. Furthermore, I entrust Amy with my corporate clients- having sent her to the Cayman Islands, Hawaii, Los Cabos, Monte Carlo and this year to Costa Rica for a week at a time. She is one of the most gracious, fun, smart and talented photographers (and people) I’ve ever worked with”

– Natasha Miller-President, Entire Productions

“Amy came to my home to shoot the cover of my latest CD. I was so impressed with how they came out. My favorite is on the cover. ” 

-Tim Hockenberry – Singer/Songwriter/Writer

” Amy is not only a very talented photographer and artist, but she is extremely patient with children and babies and large groups. Our children naturally magnetized towards her during two photo shoots because she is approachable and warm and has a solid sense of humor! Amy will go the extra mile with different backgrounds for variety, which is such a great treat when your photos are delivered. I highly recommend Amy for any family  portraits! I’m so glad we have our pictures that Amy created for us.”

– Dina Bogan- Mom of 3 & Executive Producer, Video and Media Production- Invision Communications

” Amy has a natural way to capturing a moment with a camera. In addition she works with light and the action to enhance, not fight, with what she is trying to portray in her work. I had a photography instructor once tell me that you can easily capture a moment but it is difficult to capture an emotion…..Amy manages to do both”

– Rod Mickels, Co Founder Invision Communication

” Amy – wow – they are so wonderful – its going to be hard to choose! The black and white I need for my wall but the colors with their dresses and backgrounds are amazing! I am so excited!  Thank you ,Thank you!”

– Barbara Keating Reiker – Mom of Julia and Cate age 7 & 9  -Winner of “The CURE ” Silent Auction Portrait shoot

” Amy Tolbert was my photographer for a photo shoot that involved 6 toddlers in a park setting. What she accomplished under some challenging circumstances was nothing short of amazing. She was able to make every single one of the girls feel totally comfortable and with her warmth and personality, she elicited genuine smiles and laughter. She truly captured some beautiful moments! Amy was able to do this AND also showcase the very difficult to photograph product that the girls were all modeling: toddler hairclips. She is an amazing photographer!”

– Teri Tomizawa – President, Giddy Giddy

“My husband and I felt so comfortable with Amy at our photo shoot. She was delightful to work with and our son Jasper completely connected with her. The photos really captured his personality and were gorgeous! He looked like a little Gap Baby! As our family has grown, Amy has been there to photograph both of our children. I have also had Amy  shoot several special corporate  events & head shots  for me- Cisco, Branduin Creative and my current company, MKTG INC. I can’t say enough good things about Amy T.  & Black Cat Photos!

– Molly McDaneld mom of 2 boys &  VP, Production Services MKTG Inc
