What people are saying... 

"I cannot tell you how pleased I was to have April capture my wedding photos and then edit them with the quickest turn around time I have ever experienced from a professional! Her product was top-notch and she allowed the images of my wedding to paint a magical picture to those who experienced it through the shots. She is so passionate about her work and prides herself on her product. She is truly excited about her job and assesses the layout quickly so she can set-up and move freely to capture the best angle for the authentic expression. She is a thoughtful person, has an upbeat attitude, is a diligent worker and puts a lot of personal attention into her work. She has also captured the Rooftop mixer that I organize for the community, my Indian wedding experience and is always willing to help people document their most important moments. She has my highest recommendation." - Krisha Chachra, Blacksburg, Virginia Vice Mayor and Editor, Social Scene Magazine  August, 2013

"Amodeo Photography did all of the photography for our press kits and business cards as well as our websites. She is very professional and easy to work with. You can trust in her advice as well and she has a great eye. April even captured moments of my wife and daughter that I will cherish forever. She is definitely the person to go to in the Blacksburg , Virginia and surrounding area to find good spots for a photo-shoot as well. It was nice working with someone who was also flexible and didn't rush anything but is truly passionate about what she does. It shows when someone has an artistic approach to life and is also talented in their medium. Whether it be corporate or a wedding I can guarantee you will be happy with the moments captured. I'm really happy we crossed paths with April and hope to again in the future. Thank you April !"  - Cameron Zion Musician, Lyricist, Singer  July 2013

"April Amodeo truly is an artist! She is devoted to creating beautiful, professional images and she is exceptionally skilled not only at the technical aspects of her art, but at interacting with her subjects in a way that helps them truly shine in her photographs. She also is careful and diligent in her post-shoot editing, paying great attention to detail. She is highly responsive and always gets back to us right away. She has taken pictures at several events that we have hosted and we are always more than satisfied with her work. She's a real professional photographer (not just a friend with a fancy camera, i.e., a "faux-tographer") and she's worth every penny." - Keith Finch, Creekmore Law Firm PC  August, 2013

I don’t think I photograph well, but once I saw some shots from a recent luncheon of myself, I knew I wanted April to take my business headshot photos! The luncheon photos were some of the best of me I’ve seen so far. I thought April made me look the way I want to look, and no other photographer had been able to capture that. I was impressed by how professionally April conducted the whole shoot. She is a pleasure to deal with and talk to, which made the experience even more special. I would not hesitate to recommend April to anyone, and I already have.

April is a joy to work with. She gets involved with her work and is a wonderful photograher. The smile on her face makes you always feel that you are the only person she is working with. A professional perfectionist. Always getting photos that no one else would even think about. Highly recommended!

April is a very pleasant lady to work with, and I’ve always found her photography to be highly evocative, emotionally. She has a knack for getting the moment captured in a way that I, and most other people, could never even consider doing with a camera. I highly recommend Amodeo Photography. April is an amazing photographer. I am always impressed with her photos, and she is a true professional to work with.
— Joseph Rogers, Owner, Quest Floor Care
April is an incredibly talented and creative photographer. The first time I worked with April, she took professional head shots for myself and two of my colleagues. We were looking for something different. We didn’t want the usual staged studio shots, but were looking for something that would really express our personalities. April did an amazing job and we were thrilled with the results. She was so fun to work with and had a way of making you comfortable in front of the camera to get your personality to shine through. Since then I have recommended April to many of my friends as well as clients in need of professional or corporate photography. I highly recommend April and look forward to more opportunities to work with her in the future.

I am delighted to say a few words about the character and professionalism of April Amodeo. Being the publisher of The New River Valley’s leading wedding magazine, I started getting to know April when she first advertised in our “Wedding Planner” magazine. Her enthusiasm for both her own photography business and the entire wedding industry in the NRV area was overwhelming. When we at the magazine decided to help sponsor and set up a first class networking group of area wedding professionals,” The Event Network”, to help promote and grow the entire local industry, we had only one person at the top of our list who we wanted to assume the all important role of area director....April Amodeo. Because of her boundless energy and sincere desire to help support and grow the local wedding industry , April has become the leading voice in promoting our local wedding industry. She is one of the hardest woking and selfless professionals that I have ever had the pleasure to work with.

I just love working with April and her photographs! Be sure to call April when you have a memorable occasion approaching ~ she’ll create the photographs that you’ll want to keep forever, look at again and again, and share with your friends!

April did an AWESOME job with her photos at my wedding. I can’t believe how cool all of the photos looked. She even made our casual little beach wedding look like a grand event. Highly recommended!

Mark and I had the opportunity to get acquainted with April Amodeo over a year ago. My first impression was that she had such a nice personally and was so easy to talk to. We began to build a working relationship since we’re all in the wedding business. April shared some of her work with us and we discovered she’s very talented. The quality of her photos are excellent, very creative, natural and fresh. She has an eye for detail and her unobtrusive skills are marvelous. We’ve had the pleasure of doing several events with her with much success and look forward to many more in the future. Mark and I have recommended April to many of our clients and we are very happy to add our recommendation and to commend April on the excellent service that she offers.

"April Amodeo Photography - I logged in this morning to a slew of emails and messages about these first few photo that you have shared from my Creative Session - A Day in the Life ~ Sandra Eileen Designs LLC. Each and every one has remarked on the vision of me that you have captured. That it rings true to who I am and how they see me as well. I want to thank you for that - for taking the time to "capture" me and for your suggestion that a Creative Session of at least 2 hours in front of your cameras would give me what I desired - a glimpse into my being. I now feel I have a profile photo that truly reflects ME. Be well"  - Sandra Eileen. Sandra Eileen Designs LLC. January 2014.
