"Travis is amazing. His photos are amazing. Working with him was amazing. Hands down recommend. Don't look any further."

-Reilly  and Sean

"Travis and Kim were so wonderful to work with. They were communicative and responsive during the months/weeks/days/hours leading up to the big day. They arrived early, wanted to hear our vision and desires, and communicated their suggestions for making our dream come true. Travis and Kim made everyone feel completely at ease, and the photographs let everyone's personalities and spirit shine through! They are absolutely amazing at snapping all the best candid photographs, especially on the dance floor! They even hiked through the woods in the mist with us to get a truly fairytale-like photograph that is now hanging in our living room. My husband and I constantly get compliments on our wedding photographs and we recommend Travis and Kim without hesitation. We could not be happier with our wedding photographs, and feel so lucky to have had them as our photographers!"

-Callie  and  Colton

"Kimberly and Travis are an outstanding, talented team!


Our wedding ceremony was on a sailboat in New York Harbor and they approached the non-traditional challenge with ease and flexibility. Our photos are timeless, editorial, and effortless.

We could not be more grateful to them for capturing both us and our guests on that special day. They were clear, helpful with direction, but also let us be us. We could not love our wedding photos more!"

-Damon and Amberlee

"We were searching for a photographer with soul. Someone who could provide exceptional memories for a once-in-a-lifetime event: our wedding. Someone capable of capturing every poignant moment with exceptional creativity and sensitivity. After checking out the beautiful work on Travis's site, it was immediately obvious that we had found exactly that person...His work far surpassed all that we had been dreaming of. Not just in photographic quality, but in the way he was able to capture every subtle expression of the love and adoration in our eyes. Even just the quiet moments — as if we had been here at home all by ourselves. It was pretty amazing. We also found out that Travis is down to earth, easygoing and a sheer delight to work with. From the very first moment, he made my fiancée/now wife and myself feel totally relaxed and at ease — which in turn led to our becoming completely comfortable, natural and without the slightest feeling of awkwardness."

"Travis shot my wedding back in October, and did a phenomenal job. Not only were his photographs gorgeous, but he was a very calming presence on-site, which helped to ease my nerves and those of our families. Everybody loved him and kept saying, "who's the photographer - he's such a great guy!" Travis was able to capture all the great moments with poise and ease...He captured so many great moments, big and small, and his final photos truly reflected the essence of the wedding. I can't recommend him enough - if you book him, you will not be disappointed."

We worked with Calen Rose for our engagement photos and it was sincerely such an amazing experience. My fiancée was nervous and they made her feel so comfortable as well as making us feel so welcomed in their studio. They had concepts and included our ideas as well to make beautiful photos we now have framed in our home! I would work with them again in a heartbeat!"

"Travis and Kim are an out-of-this-world team! We got married at the Bronx Zoo on July 27, 2019, and we did have a few hiccups that we dealt with the day of, which they handled with aplomb. First, we did some "getting ready" photos at our hotel in LIC, Queens. The lighting and candid, editorial nature of these shots truly showcases Travis and Kim's expertise. Next, we encountered some transportation issues getting from the hotel to our first look location- 10 minutes away on the Queens waterfront. Travis and Kim came up with a quick solution, and also suggested that I bring along one of my bridesmaids if we wanted some additional assistance. As it was windy on the waterfront, I was so glad that I brought her along (she was a Production Assistant in a former life) so that she could help with my dress and allow Travis and Kim to get as many photos of me and my now-husband as possible. When we got to the Zoo, Travis and Kim showed a perfect ability to balance the goal of executing the photography timeline for the day with the need to be flexible in the moment while dealing with such issues as pinching shoes, delayed family members, and the like. We got one of a kind photos with gorillas, flamingos, giraffes, and dinosaurs (animatronic, sadly not real....) thanks to their expertise.... Travis and Kim were only supposed to stay at the event until a particular time, but due to our speeches going overtime, they ended up graciously staying later than planned so as to make sure to get shots of the dancing (one of our wedding guests made sure to remark of how the photographers seamlessly navigated their way around the dance floor- did I mention that Travis and Kim are both ex professional dancers?). It was important to us to hire photographers that understood artistry, motion, and me and my husband's personalities, and these two most definitely fit the bill."

- Simone and David

"I would absolutely recommend that every couple shoots with Calen Rose! They create a care-free energy that allows you to play and be yourself, while maintaining professionalism that makes you confident in the results! We had an absolute ball with them and with each other. The images we received captured the vibe we were dreaming of!"

 

 

-Melissa and Matthew

"Strongly recommend them to all the lovers! They caught numerous of our tiny expressions [making] the photos really beautiful and natural. Don't hesitate to contact them if you want your love expressed in the photos, fresh and alive."

 

-Xian and Jin

"We couldn't have found a better photographer if we had a year to look for one. As it turned out, our photographer friend backed out two weeks before the wedding and we couldn't be happier with the result. Everything went right after that, from the instant connection with Travis's portfolio to the art direction on the day of the wedding. We just wanted him to do more of what we saw in his portfolio, and we got that in the best possible way. He told us exactly where to look and what to do during the posed photos. For the rest of the night, he blended seamlessly into the background and we didn't even notice when he was shooting. The final results are so much better than we could hope for - beautifully composed, adept use of light from a sunny afternoon outdoor shoot to a dimly-lit venue at night, great rapport that shines through in the guests' faces, and a perfectly crafted story of our entire day."

-Mandy and Calvin

"Throughout a career spanning nearly sixty years, I have had the pleasure of working with many of world's best photographers. I'm writing this to say Travis Magee is one of the best kept secrets in the world of photography today...Mr. Magee has developed a unique, breathtaking and formidable style that is unforgettable."

-Baldev Duggal

"Travis is very easy to work with - he is calm and easygoing - while making sure to get the shots he needs. He was very responsive and took the approach that matched with our personalities and what we wanted. Travis and his team went with the flow with us and didn't get in the way - no stress working with them at all! We are very happy with our pictures and thought the value we got from working with Travis was very high. Would recommend!"

-Sarah K

"I have worked with Travis with a number of clients and he has delivered and gone above and beyond each and every time.
He is professional, yet friendly and his demeanor is wonderful with nervous brides and grooms. I would recommend him with no hesitation at all! He is one of my favorites!"
