“When you really love your photographer and his work, you tend to hire him again and again. Over the past four years, Terry has been my go-to photographer for my engagement photos, two maternity sessions, newborn pictures of my son, my son’s first birthday party, professional images for my business website, and two office celebrations. Creative and versatile, Terry excels in working with infants, children, and adults in both studio photography and on-location settings. He literally goes the extra mile for that great shot—from trekking to the top of the Sandia Mountains to stopping traffic to shoot in the streets of downtown Santa Fe. From my first photo session with Terry, his jovial, full-of-life personality made me feel immediately comfortable and like I was hanging out with one of my best friends. It is his innate ability to connect with people which enables him to successfully capture the spirit and emotions of his subjects. Terry is a truly talented professional, and his portfolio is overflowing with breathtaking and prize-winning photographs. After each photo session, Terry provides great service with prompt delivery of easy-to-retrieve images. My only problem was that I could never decide which ones I liked the best, so I usually purchased them all. His moving to Washington has been a great loss for me and my family. With any luck, we’ll be able to fly him back to New Mexico for our next big event.

“My husband and I were married back in 2011 and one thing I always tell people is how important it is to choose a talented and professional wedding photographer. You only get married once (hypothetically), and it is nice to always go back and reflect on those memories from your big day. We booked Terry Behal for our special day and he did a fantastic job. Our wedding photos turned out amazing and they truly reflected how happy that moment was for us. Every photo captured the emotions that we felt, and we couldn’t be more pleased with how everything turned out. I would recommend Terry, he is truly an artist and an amazing photographer. Thanks Again!”

“Terry came to us highly recommended and we now understand why. Terry was positively charming and worked wonders not only with the bride and myself, but our families and our friends. He was there when we needed him to be and needed so very little of us throughout our special day. Our wedding was beautifully captured and his photos revealed many moments neither my bride or I could have witnessed firsthand as busy as we were. It was almost as though he was everywhere all at once! We also used Terry for our engagement photos and for the post finishing work and all of it was positively first class. Our pictures and wedding album are truly treasures we’ll enjoy for the rest of our lives.”

“Terry was referred to my husband and I through a friend for our wedding last summer. Terry was so professional but also a “go with the flow” kind of guy. He did our wedding party photos in Gas Works Park and they came out GORGEOUS! He was very patient with everyone, and yet kept us on our time schedule. He even managed to capture several sea planes in our photos, which is so unique I thought. At our ceremony/reception I rarely even saw him, but he photographed every important detail and many great friend and family photos I did not see until later. The proofs came back quickly and our Gorgeous Wedding Album arrived in a timely fashion. I give Terry 5 Stars, he is an amazing photographer!”

“My wife and I fist met Terry at a friends wedding several years ago, and were completely blown away – I’d never seen someone who was so talented, so down to earth and easygoing, and who truly loved what he was doing. And to no surprise, his talent and passion shines through in his photos. We booked Terry for our wedding and engagement photos without hesitation, and it is honestly the best wedding decision that I could have made (aside from my beautiful bride, of course!) Since then, I recommend Terry to anyone who will listen, and am consistently blown away by his results. In addition to amazing photographs, Terry’s personality is what sets him apart from his peers. Throughout our wedding, he fit right in and was one of us, more like a member of the wedding party than a photographer. This ability to engulf himself so fully in his surroundings and make people feel at ease provided amazing candids and captured moments that we will treasure forever. New Mexico’s loss is Washington’s gain, and you can bet that we’ll be coordinating our family photos around Terry’s visits back home!”

“My husband was not excited about taking engagement photos. He even wore his old boots that day. When he met the photographer Terry, they were fast friends and we enjoyed the afternoon and got great images. Alan and I decided to take our wedding pictures before the wedding. Once the wedding started and through the reception I can only recall seeing Terry once. And I only had 50 guests! I know he was there because I have the most amazing wedding album, truly a piece of art. He took pictures of us another time before he moved to Seattle, in Chaco Canyon National Park. He captured us and our surroundings in such a way that it took my breath away. Life long treasures is what Terry has created for my husband Alan and I. We couldn’t be more thankful. My designated family photographer has relocated so who will take the pictures of my baby due January 2nd 2015?”
