"We drove from Atlanta, GA to Raleigh, NC for our son's senior portrait session with Tonya and it was worth every expense! Our son is an avid avoider of having his picture taken and absolutely hates the process. When I say Tonya drew him out of his shell like no one I'd ever seen before. It was incredible to observe. She jumped right in and engaged him in conversation. But more than that, she captured the essence of our intelligent young 17 year old is such an unbelievable way. I still find myself looking at his gallery and marveling in amazement at her work. My husband said on the drive home that we both needed to return soon to have her do professional headshots with her in her studio. You won't be disappointed with Tonya's work."  Felicia Murrell

"Tonya came recommended to us by several mom's on a local Facebook group and we have been more than thrilled with her services. We've now used her twice, each time presenting her with challenging subjects. During our first experience with Tonya, we asked her to photograph our family of one infant, two pups and a husband who's arguably more easily distracted than the baby or the dogs. Tonya was exceptional - patient, engaging and a pleasure to work with. We were so pleased with the experience, timely turn around time and the final product (absolutely wonderful pictures!), that we reached out to her again when we wanted photographs of our larger family of 16, ranging in age from 4-months to 91 years old. Again, not an easy group to photograph, and Tonya certainly didn't disappoint. I would highly recommend her services to anyne looking for beautiful photographs and a seamless photography experience."  J. Martin

"Our family has loved working with Tonya! Her passion for her work shines through each picture that she takes. She was very patient with our impatient 3 and 4 year olds during a family shoot and was able to capture their unique personalities in her photos. We also treasure the photos of our newborn that she took for us. She did an outstanding job catching all that was tiny about her. She is exactly who you are looking for to photograph your family!"Dr. Jennifer Thompson

"Tonya was an absolute pleasure to work with. She is very creative but also allowed us to have input in what moments we wanted to capture at our wedding and in our engagement photos. Together, we created an absolutely beautiful, professional collection. I am very pleased." Lisa Lee Kelly

"Tonya has taken our family portraits for holiday cards for several years now. She has captured our 3 children transitioning to adulthood and we are so thankful for those moments she has preserved. She also took amazing pics of our beloved family dog who we lost last year, and again, we are so thankful for the memories she so beautifully captured for us. Tonya is not only professional, fun and easy to work with, but she is also a gifted artist."C. Greenwood

I would highly recommend Tonya Hurter Photography to anyone. Her pictures are excellent, and she has a gift for getting the best shot. We had a family wedding reception with 150 people, which would have been a very taxing job for anyone. She worked tirelessly, and so captured the moment. We will cherish the pictures always.
