Raves and Reviews

I had the time of my life working with Goodwin Photography! I felt so welcomed and comfortable. I immediately felt at home with them and couldn’t stop smiling (huge plus for my pictures 😉). Madison Hardy Dennis is by far the best hair and makeup artist I’ve ever seen/worked with and Krisna Goodwin blew me away with 300 amazing flawless photos! It was so hard to pick my favorites for competition. I cannot recommend this dream team enough ❤️👑

Krisna is absolutely incredible! Not only does she take amazing photos, but I can guarantee that you’ll have a wonderful experience while she’s doing it! She works with talented makeup artists to help ensure you feel photo ready. Bring lots of clothes to your headshot session and she will help you pick the perfect pieces. She even has a wide variety of Jim Ball earrings to chose from to help complete the look! I’m so happy with my pictures and since she lets you have all the unedited ones as well, I have plenty to share!

Where do I even begin? Jim and Krisna are not only an incredible photography team,they are incredible people. I have watched their work transform over the last 2 years from good pictures to impeccable works of art. They are constantly striving to move forward with their photography – always improving, adjusting, and taking risks to ensure the BEST for all of their clients. What I love most about the Jim Goodwin Photography team is the experience they give their clients. Every young woman who walks into their studio for headshots is treated like a rock star, and in turn, leaves with the confidence of a rock star. Jim and Krisna are attentive to what each client wants, but they also use their expertise to guide a girl in the right direction. I would recommend Jim Goodwin Photography to any of my clients, and I know with out a shadow of a doubt that the end result would be amazing.

Several of my pageant clients have worked with Goodwin Photography. Not only did they rave about their pictures, but they also had nothing but wonderful things to say about the quality of customer service they received on their shoot day. On a personal note, I have known Krisna Goodwin for quite some time now and her ability to put the needs of others above her own is truly inspirational. She is the perfect combination of an entrepreneur and humanitarian.

Working with  Goodwin Photography was an unforgettable experience. Not only did I have the most amazing pictures taken, but I also had a great time taking them. The Goodwin’s always do their best to make everyone feel special and beautiful during their shoot. After working in the professional atmosphere with the Goodwin’s I will never go to anyone else for photography. Pageant Headshots, Engagement photos, Weddings and more. Jim Goodwin Photography has it all!!

I had the privilege of working with Jim Goodwin Photography in preparation for Miss Tennessee (MAO) 2013. I greatly appreciated the level of professionalism and integrity Jim and Krisna provided. Prior to our session, we discussed the intended purposes for our photos. Throughout the shoot, they provided me feedback, allowing me to obtain the look I requested. I promptly received the images, which far exceeded my desires and offered many options. The format in which I received the photos allowed for me to easily share them and give Jim Goodwin Photography much deserved credit. I continually receive complements on my photos and always respond by praising the talents and integrity of Jim and Krisna Goodwin!
