Carolyn was first recommended to me by a mutual friend who had worked with her through one of Tallahassee's largest real estate firms to produce new photography for their marketing department. Carolyn was described to me as a talented photographer with a keen ability to deliver the needs of her client; that description was more than appropriate.

When I engaged Carolyn about shooting multiple places in Tallahassee's Downtown in an effort to build our stock photography she was immediately invested in the job. I laid out a very demanding scale of photography for her with a very specific vision in mind. She personally walked the entire area with me, listened carefully, planned, and executed in a manner that far exceeded any realistic expectations I may have had.

Her work speaks for itself. Carolyn's photography has now been used in countless advertisements, promotions, and publications for the purpose of Marketing our Downtown. Her innate ability to translate my vision for Downtown into photography that is artistic in nature and inspiring to the eye is very impressive.

I have been and continue to be complimented on the quality of her work by those who have seen it via the outlets in which we have featured it. There are very few items in which we promote Downtown that do not feature some or all of her photography. One of the best investments I have made over the past year was hiring Carolyn Allen.
