"Definitely a five star rating for this photographer! I have had 2 experiences with this photographer and both times my pictures have came out perfect! Mikayla asks what you want and if you have no idea she has the most perfect ideas and in the end you fall in love with her work! If I ever get married or need her to photograph anything else I will definitely be coming to Capture The Canvas Photography!"
~Stacey Dillon

"I can't put into words how professional and fun Mikayla is to work with. Such a keen eye for locations, colors and ideas that turn into amazing photos! Very open to our thoughts and ideas & always available for questions (before, during AND after our session). Our pictures turned out amazing and the best part is how completely affordable she is for the level of talent and end result!!! You will NOT be sorry hiring her for your photography needs!"
~Jeni Donahue

"I cannot express my love for the professionalism, talent and eye that Mikayla has. She has photographed modeling shoots, family photos, engagement photos and my wedding photography. She has such a passion for her work and her clients that makes working with her something you will always remember. I recommend her with the highest regards! Thank you Mikayla for capturing my life in the most beautiful photographs!"
~Lauren Hermann

"Mikayla is a fun photographer with a creative vision who is able to capture the gentleness and beauty of your family!"
~Beth Brown

"I've had Mikayla shoot me twice, now, and I will definitely hire her again in the future when the time is right. She's extremely easy to work with, and very helpful when giving you instructions or suggestions for a pose. She knows what works well, and how to quickly get good shots. This is very important when working say, in cold weather, which I've done both times with her! Not only does she put her subjects at ease (and works very well with pets!), but her editing skills are so impressive. I absolutely love the look and feel of the photos Mikayla produces. I adore not only the photos of me and my family, but her entire portfolio truly has a very dream-like nature to it, which I love. She makes her subjects look their best. Mikayla took several shots of my brother and his wife shortly after they were married. The two pictures she delivered to us are better than their entire wedding album. She captured a spirit and love between my brother and my sister in law that I didn't see in their wedding pictures. I can't wait to have an excuse to hire Mikayla again!"
~Kristen Johnson

"Totally loved working with Mikayla. My husband and I got both our engagement and wedding pictures done with her. She took our vision into a reality. I would love to work with her again in the future. I have recommended her to numerous friends and family. She is the best!!! You will come back again and again and don't be afraid to give her theme ideas, she's great at that too. Amazing talent and vision, couldn't be happier with the turn out."
~Kalle Stegall

"Mikayla did a fabulous job on my son's senior pictures. I appreciated her willingness to work with us on scheduling during her recent trip to Tennessee. Her location selections were just perfect for the type of photos we wanted. She is talented, professional and an absolute pleasure to work with. Thanks, Mikayla!"
~Susan Stilz

"My daughter, Linnea, just had a photo shoot with Mikayla this past Sunday. I have to admit, she was a little apprehensive before the shoot because she had never done this before. Afterwards she said she had so much fun and Mikayla totally put her at ease. We both absolutely love all the pictures, and love Mikayla's artistic eye...what an amazing talent!!! I recommend her fully to anyone who's looking for a unique and creative ability. She's one of a kind. You won't be disappointed with the pictures she takes."
~Kristen Anderson

"Mikayla is a very young lady, but her talent is way beyond her years. I mean, her body of work speaks for itself. From lighting to composition to editing... She knows her stuff! She's also very conversational and easy to work with during the shoot, which helps us who absolutely hate being on camera. I hope to get more pictures taken by her."
~Stephanie Jimenez

"We have done two sets of family pictures and both times were great experiences! Very friendly, knowledgeable & professional. Great turn around time and will definitely be taking our future pictures with you!"
~Erica Lucio

"Mikayla went above and beyond with the pictures she did for my boyfriend and I! I was impressed with how quickly the shoot went, and we still had a lot of photos! I love the pictures and I will always cherish them! I look forward to having Mikayla photograph future life events!"
~Stephanie Molskness

"I'm a very self conscious person when it comes to photos, but every photo-shoot I've had with Mikayla has boosted my self esteem up to its peak. Not only do her pictures show your outer beauty, but they also bring out the inner sparkling personality of yours. I know, sounds corny!"
~Julie Nguyen

"Mikayla is such a great photographer and wonderful with kids! She photographed my daughter on a bad day and still managed to produce beautiful pictures. Such a unique editing style also!"
~Nichole Brooks

"Truly a wonderful experience! Very professional. On time and took great, AMAZING pictures for my daughter's senior pictures. She took her time, but yet went quickly. Got to know her and I couldn't be happier with the results. Highly recommend!"
~Noreen Blair

"My favorite photographer, hands down! She's the best."
~Melissa Ballak

"Mikayla is always professional, easy to work with, and takes beautiful unique shots in unexpected places. We loved working with her and hope to do it again in the near future! So young and creative with so much talent! Wishing you great things in the future of capturing beautiful moments! Taking pictures is making memories! Many thanks!"
~The Ciko Family

"Mikayla is a sensational photographer with amazing skill to capture the perfect picture no matter where the location. Her style of work is incomparable and she finds a way to bring out the best qualities in every single client. Furthermore, she is not only capturing a beautiful photograph, but also a memory of a specific time in one's life. Mikayla photographed my senior pictures and my prom pictures in such a remarkable way that I will always be able to look back at them and recall the memories of each event in my life."
~Hannah Dallio

"Mikayla photographed our engagement pics!!! Loved, loved each and every one of them! The colors were so vibrant and rich!! She was a lot of fun to work with even my fiancée had fun and he's someone that doesn't always like to be photographed!!! Were looking forward to using her for our wedding!!! I can't wait to see what ideas she has in store for us!"
~Kathy Martin

"Attentive to clients wants, punctual and on time for her appointments, professional and passionate about what she does and creates a very fun and stress-free session. She dedicates as much professionalism to her editing as she does to her photographing skills. She routinely gives back to the community in donating her time and talent to groups and individuals and brings awareness to those with special needs and special concerns."
~Michael Joseph

"Capture the Canvas has done a great job with each of our many photo shoots. Two years of family photos, two separate shoots for two of my older sons and a graduation gift shoot for a friend. Each time more phenomenal results are seen. Not any easy accomplishment considering I had given her a crabby 4 year old and chosen a rainy day as our available day. Kudos to getting a smile out of him!"
~Debbie Bastas

"We had so much fun during our photo shoot! Many different locations and ideas. Cannot wait to see the final result! Would definitely hire Capture The Canvas again!"
~Christie Novak

"What can I say but 'phenomenal!' Mikayla is highly professional, yet makes a photography session so much fun. I will treasure the pictures she took of my daughters forever and can't wait to have her photograph them again. From choosing a beautiful location and unique poses to highlighting spectacular colors - each shot was stunning and a keeper!"
~Michele Pitt

"VERY innovative!!! She truly has an eye for the beauty in each person and for FABULOUS setting! Extremely high quality for the price which makes it something that every person and family can capture lasting memories with her pictures. Mikayla works well with people of any age and is extremely punctual and professional...a RARE find!!!"
~Carmen Kosicek
