It is always our top priority to ensure all clients walk away from a session feeling nothing short of exceptional. Preparation, experience, and final product are of equal importance to us. We are happy to share all feedback clients have given us over the years:
"We throughly enjoyed our experience with AJ Mathews and Paper Anchor! Our family photos turned out great and captured the love shared between us in a wonderful way. Through his skill and artistry, he has created a gift that will be timeless for our family. AJ was professional, yet added humor and fun along the way. We were able to view our pictures in a very short time and realized then that AJ had captured our family in a true and creative way. Beautiful pictures and great experience!"
"We had such a fantastic experience with AJ! He captured my graduation beautifully and took all the worry out of having to take after-ceremony pictures ourselves. He was so professional as well as kind, friendly, and easy to work with. Our photos turned out amazing! He truly captured our personalities in each photo and I'm so incredibly happy with the quality of the shots. We will definitely be booking AJ again for any future shoots!"
"I used Paper Anchor Photography for my engagement photos and they turned out amazing! AJ listened to what we wanted and then also added some creative touches that I would have never thought of. He is so easy to work with and is very in-tune with what the client wants. We got our pictures back in a timely manner and we couldn't have been happier. I would highly recommend using Paper Anchor to anyone looking for any kind of photo shoot!"
"Excellent to work with. We have used them multiple times and AJ never disappoints. We already have plans to use them in the future."
"AJ shot our engagement photos in August, and I'm obsessed. I picked him for two reasons: 1) I knew he would listen to what we wanted 2) I knew he had the personality to get us smiling/work with our awkwardness in front of the camera. He definitely came through on both points. We wanted a natural/country feel, and he took us on a few hikes through Shawnee Mission Park to find some beautiful unique spots I'd never seen before. He was happy/excited to shoot some poses/ideas I knew I'd wanted to do, but also had a bunch of his own ideas that he brought to the table, which I ended up loving. He's a great photographer all around, but especially if you're not typically comfortable in front of the camera. Thanks AJ!"
"AJ has been nothing but amazing and understanding through out my whole entire experience working with him. I needed graduation photos done ASAP and he was able to work with my schedule and got my photos done in such a short period of time that I was able to get my announcements out with time to spare. I loved the location he chose and it really brought out the feel of the photos that I wanted to achieve. I really appreciated that he helped me make decisions on a lot of the details (since im terrible at decision making). Im so excited to have my couples photos, family photos, and all my other photo needs done with AJ. Thank you so so so much for everything!!!"
"Wouldn't recommend anyone else. Great photos & an awesome time! AJ was amazing!"
"AJ was fantastic to work with. He made our engagement shoot fun, even with ridiculous wind and heat! He has an eye for capturing the moment and sharing a story though his images. We got our images quickly after our shoot and AJ was more than helpful with whatever we needed. Could not recommend him more!"
"Happy to support a friend with quality photography skills like AJ. Nothing but satisfied with Paper Anchor Photography. Very professional, exceptional prices, and amazing quality. It's beyond obvious that he is 100% passionate about photography and does his best to produce the highest quality results. Our band has had two sessions and more to come! Always phenomenal work, and if it were me, our band would be the last thing I would want to try and get good photos of. 5 stars, no question."
"AJ was great to work with for our family pictures! He was very patient as we tried to get our two little boys to pay attention and was quick to capture the boys smiling when they did. Very pleased with how our photos turned out and will definitely be recommending him to friends!"
" I think Joshua's photographs speak for themselves. Not only were the angles, location, lighting all spot on, AJ' ability to coax our senior from teen to model were amazing. AJ took the time to get to know Josh to help work it. He communicated consistently and was such a joy. Extremely happy and will definitely use again. While I am sure there are many great photographers in the area, be assured AJ tops 'em. "
" AJ did such a great job with our first photos as a family of three! He made it a stress free process and we got our photos back very quickly. I can't stop looking at them! We're already planning the next session we'll have when our kiddo turns 1. Thanks AJ Mathews! "
" AJ is amazing! Not only highly professional, but we had a lot of fun doing my head shots. I'm not a fan of having my own photo taken, but AJ makes it pleasurable and I'm blown away by his results! "
" Amazing photography and amazing guy to talk to about anything!"
"AJ was awesome to work with and ensured that our session felt laid back and natural. He was able to create the images we were wanting and turned them around quickly. Highly recommend!"
"Pictures turned out fantastic and AJ is awesome to work with! He kept everyone in stitches and even got my teenage daughter to actually smile, which is a feat in itself!"
"AJ did an amazing job with our newborn photos, quick with his responses, patient with both of my boys (thanks for listening to Jones’s LEGO shop talk!) and we had the pictures back very quickly! Thanks for all the amazing work! We will be reaching out to you again for photos in the upcoming future!"
"We LOVE our family pictures! It’s been a long time since we’ve had pictures taken, and with two rowdy boys, I wasn’t sure how it was going to go. AJ was awesome with the boys and they did amazing! Our family pictures turned out better than we could have imagined! We recommend him 110%."
"We officially found our new family photographer! AJ was so easy to work with, professional, creative, and was super patient with our two young kiddos. I am SO in love with all of our photos!"
"AJ is FIVE STARS!"
