kristine-watts“Kerry has been a delight to work with. She has demonstrated a huge amount of patience and professionalism through out the entire re-design of the GPTCHB website and branding materials. She produces creative and high quality work and is always upbeat and personable. Kerry is always timely in responding to emails and phone calls and provides a high level of expertise all while being flexible and open to feedback. I can’t imagine doing this project with anyone else and I highly recommend Kerry. She produces high quality work and is simply a wonderful person to work with.”

Zach-E“It was wonderful working with Ron and Kerry! I was seeking a professional headshot and found a great deal with their LinkedIn special. The experience from start to finish was terrific. Ron and I spoke over the phone about my goals and set up a time that following week to shoot that accommodated my work schedule. He expressed his excitement about working with me which was nice. My wife and I went over to the studio and received a warm welcome by Ron and Kerry. They were incredibly friendly and it was as if they were welcoming us to their home. We chatted for a bit and when we started shooting Ron and Kerry walked me through it every step of the way (and would periodically show my wife the photos and get her opinion). We took tons of great shots in just about 20 minutes. Afterwards, we stuck around and chatted for 15 minutes just because we were enjoying the company!

I was really impressed with the turnaround time on the photos. I was not expecting it but Ron sent me the link with all of the photos the following day! They were really high quality and I was able to download all of them to my computer. I choose one that I wanted to be touched up for my LinkedIn, and Kerry did an awesome job and turned that photo around for me in just 3 days!

I’m really happy with the photos, but more importantly, thrilled with the overall experience of working with Ron and Kerry. It was a joy!”

Kerramel_100214_011-150x150“Having my professional photo taken was terrifying to me and yet I knew I needed one for my new website. Kerramel Studios came out to my office, set up and then discussed my objectives and approach to come up with a set of photos that would best portray who I am and what I do. I was able to relax and have nice photos of myself and my assistant in our Financial Planning office. I am both relieved and grateful for their expertise in bringing out the photogenic best in their subjects–me! Thank you to Kerry & Ron!”

Chloe Neims“Kerry and Ron immediately put me at ease and were genuinely interested in my business. Rather than a stiff portrait, they made sure that my true personality and business persona shone through! Their studio is conveniently located and their cameras and lighting made me look my best! I highly recommend Kerramel Media, and look forward to working with them again in the future.”

Kerramel_010314_0021-300x200“I have had such a pleasant experience with Kerry and Kerramel Media. Kerry has assisted me on several projects, including: photography for my head shots – which came out beautifully, website design for my business website – all of my clients comment on how clean and easy to navigate it is, and graphic design for my business cards – again, my clients love these cards. We are currently working on my comp cards and I am sure they will be just as excellent as other services provided. Kerry works so hard to ensure your vision is properly represented. I have actually taken to carrying several of Kerry’s business cards with me because people are constantly asking for her contact information.

Kerry is extremely knowledgeable about what she does. She is always happy to answer all of my many questions and is always prompt with her responses. She also gives accurate time estimates on turn around time when working on projects.”

Kerramel_090114_0309-150x150“I was nervous about getting my headshots taken but Ron and Kerry made me feel comfortable and gave great direction during the shoot. The results were far above and beyond what I was expecting, I found it hard to select just a single headshot, there were so many great shoots. Not only did I get a great headshot out of the shoot, I will be using some of the other photos for my website and promotional materials. I also appreciated the subtle retouching of my headshot. I really can’t convey how wonderful it was working with Kerry and Ron, they are one hell of a team.”

043013_MaryAllisonWu_0009“I hired Kerramel Media to take my headshot for my blog, my LinkedIn page, and my Facebook business page.  There area many different types of photographers, I have a friend that does wonderful shots of birds, there are also photographers that specialize in babies or pets. I had seen Kerry Ben-Joseph’s shots of people of different ages and skin tones and she does a fabulous job of photographing all people.  I actually had fun on my photo shoot with Kerramel. I am not artistic so I put myself in her hands.  Knowing that I was with someone that had a good eye and someone that was good with visuals was helpful and reassuring.  Also, after I received my photos and put my headshot up on LinkedIn and Facebook it was great to hear so many of my friends and followers tell me how fantastic the photo was.  I would recommend Kerramel Media because the process is easy, and she makes people look better than real life.”

I was excited because I had seen her work and was impressed by her ability to capture and communicate specific moments. She does a great job of offering insights and suggestions throughout the process. She also responds timely and professionally. Overall she is fantastic to work with. I have always been impressed with her approach to the process and her responsiveness. She is able to take the somewhat random thoughts that I might bring to the process and reformulate them in a way that makes sense and effectively communicates our objective. I look forward to working with her again.”

Francesca“Kerramel Media helped me with a commercial photoshoot to promote the sale of my product.  I never had the opportunity to work with a professional photographer before. I wanted quality photos that I could use on my website instead of amateur photos I had taken myself.  As I was working with Kerramel Media, I thought ‘what an incredible opportunity I have to work with such talent’.  Kerry is a professional and knew exactly what shots and poses to take to make my product look amazing. Shots and poses I would have never thought of on my own. She used her creativity to bring my product to life.  I loved the way the photos turned out and what I have been able to do with them to promote my business.  My experience working with Kerry on the photoshoot was incredible.”

Kerramel_19-150x150“I had the amazing opportunity to work with the lovely Kerry! She was super nice and knew exactly what she was doing. I had never done head shots before and was never comfortable taking pictures. Kerry helped me out so much . She told me to bring a couple of shirts and chose the one that was perfect for the setting. We had my pictures taken outside on a lovely day in Downtown Lombard. The entire photo shoot from start to finish was a true adventure. I felt super comfortable in my skin and she gracefully captured my essence in every light. I never felt like i was posing rather i felt free from any restraint! It was an exhilarating feeling. I was kinda sad once the photo shoot was over. I really enjoyed getting my pictures taken for the first time ever! Once the photos were processed i couldn’t believe how good they pictures came out. They were absolutely stunning and very professional. I will definitely go back for another shoot with her.It was a true pleasure to work with Kerry Ben-Joseph!”

Kerramel_7“Kerry took my actor headshots and I was excited about working with her because I knew she was going to take my best interest into account when photographing me. I was going to get an honest opinion on my look as well as get the best shots possible out of each look. She did a great job and gave me direction so she could get the most out of each photo. Kerry met my expectations. I don’t think I could have asked for more. She made me feel comfortable throughout the whole process. It was a fun, easy, honest, open and comfortable experience the whole way through.”

– Eddie Torres

Britt-Headshot“I was excited about Kerramel Media’s work because I previously had several logos that made it evident that the graphic designer did not respect my request to visit my website and Pinterest to understand my brand identity (a task that required no more than 15 minutes out of their day), nor did they listen to anything I had to say. Kerry understood my vision and got it right on the first try. I would totally recommend Kerramel Media because Kerry took my requests into account, understood my vision, and did a perfect job.”

Ron captured exactly what we hoped for at a surprise birthday party including the anticipation of the guest of honor, the big surprise, multiple shots of every single guest and even the food! Every special request for posed or group shots was met with ease and executed well and the candid photos were great too! I would absolutely hire Kerramel Studios again and highly recommend them.”
