What our clients are saying...

"Would never use any other studio ..."

Needing a professional business portrait for Boston Magazine, I chose Brogen for the job based on their reputation and professionalism. From the very moment I walked into the studio, everything was perfect and exceeded my expectations. Randy and Caroline are truly pros, and just great people! They combine their experience, knowledge, and expertise with a fantastic personal style that is unmatched. The quality of their work speaks for itself. Could not be happier. Thank you Randy and Caroline!

Can't Say Enough Good Things ...

"I can not say enough good things about Caroline Vogel Brogen and Randy Brogen from Brogen Photography! From traveling all the way from Burlington to Waterville Valley so Isabel would be comfortable in her favorite place, to climbing like mountain goats over boulders and slippery rocks whilst holding photography equipment, the whole session was fun and relaxing. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this a fun and great experience for us! I just saw my proofs and I can't choose!!!!!!!" - Saundra Carbery

"Pride with every shot"

My name is Suzanne Kakouris, and I am the proud owner of Suzanne’s Dance Connection located in Burlington, MA. I have had the complete pleasure and privilege to have worked with Brogen Photography over the past year and my experience from beginning to end has been outstanding!!

The Brogen Team are professional, energetic, enthusiastic and passionate about what they do, and they made the “dreaded picture day” a DREAM! The Team arrived early and ready to set up and start the marathon day at our studio. Caroline ran the check-in desk to field questions and give all of the important information that parents needed to make the day completely efficient. Her organizational skills are excellent and with her out front prepping dancers and families, Randy was able to create beautiful photos, actually exquisite, photos! Randy treated every single dancer with patience and kindness, which resulted in great photographs and lots of happy faces. Randy gave every dancer special attention which brought out each one’s personality resulting in natural, relaxed smiles!! With Randy’s easy going nature, artful eye and amazing skill, he was able to capture spectacular moments…memories for parents and families to treasure and cherish for years to come. Parents were beyond thrilled and loved their finished product; the results made it difficult for parents to choose – there were so many great shots. Great picture day…Mission Accomplished!

Brogen Photography takes pride in each and every shot! As a studio owner for over 30 years, I have never been happier with Picture Day! I would, without hesitation, recommend BROGEN PHOTOGRAPHY for all of your dance photos, as well as any other occasions to capture life’s moments.

As I like to say, “Pictures are Priceless,” and the best artwork to display is that of your own children…your precious and most treasured gifts, all unique and fabulous. Did I mention Randy and Caroline also do artistic on location dance photo shoots that are just breathtaking. My students and their families, who have had done them, could not be happier! THANK YOU BROGEN PHOTOGRAPHY!! YOU ARE THE BEST!!!

Simply The Best

Brogen Photography is simply the best. I had taken an amateur photo class with them a few years back, and was very impressed with their credentials and skills. A year later Randy was looking to work on a high school baseball creative session, and I had my son volunteer. Randy took some absolutely amazing shots, and my son had a blast working with him. This summer when my son needed his senior portraits taken, there was no question in my mind who was going to take these pictures. I called the studio and spoke to Caroline who arranged everything perfectly with such clear communication and follow up confirmation emails. Randy and Caroline worked seamlessly together to capture some fabulous natural shots of my son. The technical and artistic skills they possess are amazing. They exceeded my expectations, and were so professional from start to finish. It is truly a pleasure to work with them.

Knowledge is Second to None

Brogen Photography has been photographing my daughters since 2012. Randy and Caroline do an exceptional job relaxing their subjects and the results turn out to be fabulous natural shots. Their love for photography is contagious, and well as their exuberant personalities. It's hard to leave a photo session without smiling, both in the photos and walking out of their studios. I love discussing photography with them as their technical knowledge is second to none. I always learn something new about photography after speaking with them. Randy and Caroline's photographic eye can turn what I would perceive as a mundane background into an exceptional can't miss shot. Through the years Brogen Photography has photographed my children on soccer teams, figure skating and senior portraits. No matter the subject matter their photographs always impress.

"Blown Away"

Our daughter Gracie just had her first Artistic Dance Photo Session with Brogen Photography on location at the Boston Waterfront, we can not thank them enough for the amazing experience we all had. From the time we arrived on location, we were blown away at the creativity and attention to detail that both Caroline and Randy possess. Gracie immediately felt relaxed and had so much fun with both of them during her session. Her finished images came out absolutely gorgeous! I would highly recommend Brogen Photography to all of my Family and Friends. I know we will definitely be contacting them again in the future for many more sessions.

Exceptional Finished Product

The Hayden Synchronized Skating Teams were delighted to work with Brogen Photography this year. Randy and Caroline are true professionals and produced an exceptional finished product. They were extremely flexible to work with and accommodating of our every need. When our schedules were rushed, they fit everything in without any stress or hurry. When our schedules were running late, they waited patiently for us. And when we needed overnight turnaround on team photos, they delivered right on time. The photos were the best we’ve ever had and truly captured the beauty and elegance of our many skaters. We look forward to a long partnership with Brogen Photography.

Bucket List

As a contemplative senior citizen I’ve been considering checking off a few bucket list wishes. For several years I’ve desired but hesitated to have a boudoir bareback portrait to present to my dear husband. I am 70 years old and was afraid I may have missed my window of opportunity. It took professional photographer Randy and his lovely wife and teammate Caroline to prove I was totally mistaken. Together they helped to make my 1st bucket list checkmark a complete success! They truly created a work of art. My amazing new portrait is now my healthy 80-year-old husband’s treasure! It was the perfect personal Birthday Gift complete with pink champagne!

Thank you sincerely for helping my husband and myself to see me with new eyes! ☺

Best Headshot Ever

I’ve had several headshots taken over the years, and Brogen Photography took my best headshot ever! Randy picked an angle that was very flattering and also created a fun, relaxed atmosphere which made me feel comfortable instead of stiff in front of the camera. The results were fantastic. Randy and Caroline are a great team; they turned my photo and files around quickly to meet my deadline. I would highly recommend their services to anyone. They obviously love what they do, and I have no doubt their approach would be fantastic for family and kids photos as well as professional ones.

Completely Customer Focused

I recently had a portrait session with Randy Brogen that I'd like to tell you about. What immediately struck me about Randy are his high energy level and great love and enthusiasm for his profession. He is very warm and attentive and at the outset takes great care to put you at ease. Before the actual shoot, he’ll take the time to discuss and clarify what your needs, expectations, and personal preferences are. He is completely customer focused. I was very pleased with the final results as they fully realized the visual mood I was looking for.In short, his enormous technical knowledge combined with his artistry and sensitivity to his clients, place him in an elite class within his profession. I recommend him highly and would use his services again without any hesitation.

Touch A Heart

We were familiar with Randy’s photographs before we asked him to restore several badly damaged turn-of-the-century photos of Margaret’s grandparents. We expected exemplary work. We expected to be blown away by what he was going to produce.What we didn’t expect was that when Margaret showed one of the restorations to her cousin – a photo of their grandmother as a stylish young woman – that her cousin would begin to cry. A lot of photographs catch our eye. Only a few touch a heart.
Thanks Randy

Chris and Deborah Crooks

Randy and Caroline were amazing. Their unique ability to make our family feel comfortable while getting our pictures taken, coupled with Randy’s special gift of seeing the perfect lighting, setting and pose resulted in a collection of pictures that truly captured what we were looking for. The hardest part was trying to narrow down the pictures to just a few, since there were so many great shots. Hands down, Randy and Caroline make a special team that I would highly recommend to anyone looking to capture the moment.

Whitman Financial Services, LLC

We shopped extensively and were pretty sure we found the right photographer after touring Upon arrival at their comfortable studio, any doubts were swiftly removed and I heard myself saying "This is a good fit." We wanted very professional headshots for our website, social media marketing and press releases. Randy and Caroline didn't just exceed our expectations -- they blew us away with quality, integrity, talent, technology and, most importantly -- fantastic results. We've been overwhelmed with compliments from everyone about our pictures. I wish every vendor relationship would work as well as Brogen Photography. We've never looked so good! Thanks again so very much for the best photographs we've ever seen.

Mona Chang, Manager, Volunteer Programs and Internships

Randy has been our photography volunteer since July 2009 and he came to us through his father-in-law, who also happens to be one of our senior Aquarium Guide volunteers. We have been very happy working with Randy who has taken many beautiful pictures of our animals and events as well as some fun pictures of our staff, volunteers and visitors. He is easy to work with, quick with his responses, thoughtful in his work and he has even donated a few large print photos of our animals, including an award winning jellies photo. We really appreciate Randy’s assistance and his generosity. Thank you.

Anna Narinsky

It was a great experience to have our family pictures taken by Randy and Caroline. They are a rare combination of the true professionalism and incredible talent. They utilized all necessary latest technology to reflect the perfect light. We have our pictures taken outdoor and despite the weather conditions Randy and Caroline were able to achieve the perfect natural light using the background, sitting position and equipment. As the result the pictures looked amazing! Also for anyone who ever tried to take small kids portraits and know how challenging task could be, Randy and Caroline were able to do it with ease when everyone felt relaxed and even was able to enjoy the process. So far the best results of professionally taken pictures we have ever had! We would definitely recommend Brogen Photography to anyone looking to capture the moment.

Roxanne Brazina

Randy has worked with all three of my children (at sporting events, for senior photos, etc) and the photos from each shoot were nothing short of stunning. After Randy borrowed my oldest daughter for an afternoon, to experiment with studio lighting, he produced several award-winning photos. One shot was more beautiful than the next! Not only does Randy take amazing photos he's always energetic, patient, a pleasure to work with. All of my children had a fun, positive experience and forgot they were in front of the camera. Randy is a top-notch photographer and I strongly recommend him. I'm now looking forward to having him shoot my family's portrait... I can't wait to see what he does with that!

Susan Byrd

I need to commence this testimonial with a confession: I hate to have my photo taken because the photos always come out terrible - looking either like a mug shot (after a long night of boozing) or a driver's license picture taken by an overworked person at the Registry. However, I was one of the lucky people who saw and won Randy and Caroline's groupon deal. Caroline and Randy are not only an engaging couple but they are extremely professional. They quickly responded to the fact I wanted to exercise my groupon for a Christmas present for my parents and took no time to schedule me for my photo session. There is only one word to describe my photo session -- fun. Randy and Caroline took great steps to make me feel relaxed and the pictures turned out great because of their care and professionalism. I highly recommend the team of Randy and Caroline Brogen and will be not waiting for another groupon for my next photo session.

Wendy Craib

My family and I had the pleasure of working with Randy and Caroline. Having not had a family portrait for nearly 13 years I didn’t know what to expect with 2 teenager daughters but the results were amazing. We had such a fun experience. Randy and Caroline made us feel very comfortable and relaxed which Randy captured beautifully. We were overall very pleased with whole experience, professional service and beautiful photographs. We will definitely use Randy and Caroline for future photography and extend our recommendation to friends.

Glenn James

I had the good fortune of finding Randy through the internet. I was new to the area and in need of some updated professional head shots, short on time and in need of some pre-photo shoot grooming. Randy and Caroline took care of me. They accommodated my schedule, and arranged and booked a hair stylist for me and prepared me for the shoot. I am very happy with the results. We tried a couple different backgrounds, a couple different angles and adjusted the light, quickly finding some great shots. Picking the ‘best’ shot is hard if you are on your own with a large pallet to choose from. Randy’s direct from camera to mac process, and his method to narrow down the best shots worked very well and we quickly found the keepers. Finally, Randy and Caroline were both friendly and engaging throughout the process, made me feel comfortable and brought out the best of me for the shoot. I highly recommend Randy and I look forward to working with him again.

Gayle Faller

My business photo went from dread to pleasurable from the moment I arrived at the studio to the very last minute. It was so relaxing and enjoyable. From the very beginning, I could tell that Caroline and Randy knew exactly what I wanted and how to accomplish the perfect picture. I was not rushed, and they made me feel comfortable throughout the entire 30 minute session. The results were amazing! I would give Brogen Photography my highest recommendation!

Grace McDonald-Smith

Thank you, Randy and Caroline, for making the “encounter” of posing for a professional portrait such a comfortable and fun experience. As a person who doesn’t smile easily for the camera, I was happily surprised during my 30-minute corporate portrait session to see that Randy, with his energetic and enthusiastic personality, was able to bring out my smile (along with a few laughs) while posing me for what seemed to be a multitude of photographs. Perhaps one of the best features of the session was the fact that all photographs are displayed on a laptop in real time. Together with Caroline, I was able to immediately identify and discard the facial poses that I didn’t like of myself (too solemn, not enough smile ...) . Randy brought out a genuine, natural looking “toothy” smile during my session and I am delighted with the photograph. In addition to Randy’s technical expertise, the efficiency by which his partner Caroline greeted my initial phone call, explained the process, and handled the paperwork was outstanding. If you prefer to give your photography business to a local company not part of a national chain, then look no further than the Brogen photography studio.

Karen Hunter, SPHR

I was referred to Randy & Caroline Brogen by a friend who used them for a professional photograph, which came out wonderful. Based on my own experience, I can assure you that their work is nothing short of genius. They have a unique knack of knowing how to make you feel comfortable and bring out your best image. They don't rush, are fussy about lighting/angles and their attention to detail is astounding. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a qualified, customer focused professional photographer. They won't disappoint.

Swan Shen, CFP, ChFC, CRPC, MBA

I'm very pleased with Brogen Photography. Randy and Caroline are impressively thorough and patient. They take the time to explain the process and pay attention to all the details to ensure they capture the best quality of my image. I'll definitely return for future photographing needs. Thanks again for the nice work!

CoreNet Global - New England

Randy Brogen has successfully worked with our Corenet Global New England Awards Committee in creating an online system that allows us to accept award nominations and submissions for our program. The system works very well as it currently exists although we work regularly with Randy to improve it as our processes and program evolves. We are always on a quest to improve upon what we did in years past to make the system efficient and user friendly for the nominators, the committee volunteers and the judges. Randy assists us in every way to keep the system relevant to the process and provides great support as needed. We consider Randy an integral part of the workings of the committee and the Awards Program. I would highly recommend him to any other CoreNet Global chapter that is considering this kind of online system for their own awards program.

Salome Juethner

My daughter's figure skating program was photographed by Brogen Photography. While they shot thousands of photos of many different skaters throughout the day; when I emailed with questions, I got a prompt, personalized and helpful response. Photos were ready for viewing very quickly. It is clear that they have experience photographing figure skaters as the photographer could anticipate the next "key shot". These are probably the best photos we have of her from a competition. The ordering process was very easy. I would definitely recommend using Brogen Photography!

Al Vaz - Family Holiday Session

We have never had a formal family photo done and after having a blast with Randy & Caroline Brogen, this will be an annual event. Our girls have never had so much fun posing for pictures. Can't wait for the summer photo shoot at the beach! And for everyone out there, we highly recommend the Brogen Team for all your photography needs.

Avison Young

I highly recommend getting your corporate headshots taken by Randy. My firm went to his studio for a series of headshots and the experience was fantastic. 100% professionalism, and excellent end product. We even had a time crunch on a couple of the headshots and he was able to accommodate our needs without a hitch and the shots were great.

Cassie Villa

I hired Randy/Photos by R. Brogen, LLC back in the Spring of 2011 for a senior picture photoshoot. Randy and his wife Caroline were a pleasure to work with. They are extremely professional and made me feel comfortable and confident from the get go. The results were great and I would reccomend them to anyone!

Allen Marguilis, Total Counsel Law Group

Awesome experience" Randy provides exceptional value in capturing the essence of the message to be delivered through photographs. My firm hired Randy to produce photos for our website and other marketing materials. We were very pleased with his professionalism, expertise and end product. His attention to detail epitomized the process. Randy came out to the office the day before shooting at the same time of the scheduled shoot to determine lighting needs and possible subject placements. I can't wait to work with him again.

David Markuson – Burlington Baseball and Softball Association Board Member

It was a pleasure working with Brogen Photography during the 2012 Cal Ripken regional baseball tournament. They were great to deal with and accommodating with their setup, field access and coordinating arrangements with the participating teams and officials. The Brogen team covered the entire tournament - from opening ceremonies through the awards presentation and every game in between – taking an average of over 1000 pictures for each game. They captured plenty of action shots throughout the tournament for all the players and families to enjoy, and have a great website to review all the pictures and select the ones you want.

Karen Stock

We received our photos from the BHSA Ice Show: Express Yourself, and I just wanted to say Thank You! The photos are just gorgeous, and I couldn't be more pleased with them! You all were so friendly and professional, and your passion for photography certainly shows in your finished product. This was my daughter's fifth ice show, and your photos are the best we've had. Thank you so much!

Lee Ann Friedman

Randy and Caroline created heirloom quality photographs of our now grown-up children and my husband and me. The beautiful photos were gifts that I was very excited to give to our family members at Christmas. I created a photo album of the various pictures for each son.Future generations of our family will know about all of us through these beautiful photos. That gives me great pleasure.

Casey Robinson

Randy and Caroline are excellent at what they do. Caroline was professional, thoughtful and proactive in arranging the logistics for our on-location shoot. Randy and Caroline were both so good with our two young daughters -- making them comfortable, engaging them at the right times, letting them run around in between. And we couldn't be more thrilled with the results. We were hoping for one good shot of the family, we ended up with several we can't live without!

Fiona Stephenson

Our family of four had a great time with Randy and Caroline yesterday at a favorite field near our home. It felt like spending the morning with friends, who just happened to have great equipment and a wonderful eye for lighting!

Timothy Donohue

We enjoyed a great shoot at our house yesterday with Randy and Caroline. We look forward to seeing our proofs. Even the kids had fun!

Mariellen Perugini

Just a look at the incredible photos on his website is all the convincing you will need. Randy and Caroline did a wonderful job with Anthony's senior photo!

Mike WinnBBSA Board, Summer Travel Director

I had the pleasure of working with Randy, Caroline and Dan when Burlington Baseball hosted the State Tournament in 2011. They were courteous, professional and extremely accommodating. I have been to many youth games over the years and I have never seen any event covered as well as Photos by R. Brogen covered our tournament. I talked to many teams that were also thrilled by Randy and Dan's ability to always get the right "shot". I look forward to working with Photos by R. Brogen in the future.

Joann Terrio

We first met Randy through the summer swim team at the Swim & Tennis Club. His action pictures were amazing, so I decided to book a session for a family portrait. From the moment we entered the studio, Randy & Caroline made us feel welcome and at ease. What normally could be a stressful experience (family pictures) was quickly made easy by Randy’s energy, patience and humor. His interaction with my kids and ability to make them feel comfortable resulted in a fun experience for all. At the end of our session he decided to take us outside for a “few more shots”. It was a beautiful fall afternoon and the foliage was fabulous. Through his experienced eye he was able to get stunning shots with the beautiful maple trees behind us. The result was an outstanding family picture that we will treasure forever. The complete experience was fun from start to finish. The pictures we took away from our session with Randy adorn our walls and are frequently admired by visitors to our home. Thanks to Randy & Caroline for welcoming us into their studio and providing us with beautiful family portraits.

Bill Bochnak

I had the good fortune to cross paths with Randy and Caroline as a result of their participation in the 2011 North Shore Tour de Cure. I could go on and on about the quality of the shots they took, the attention to detail they paid while shooting on a cold rainy overcast day, but what really stuck out was the outstanding service they provided after the event was over. Both Randy and Caroline genuinely care if I was happy with the final product they produced and continued to provided what i considered first class service from start to finish. In today's day and age with all the "options" avilable to capture important events, I strongly recommend Randy and Caroline, true professional who make you feel like a friend.

Paige Brazina

I had a great time while we were doing my swim photo shoot. Randy makes things fun and easy while capturing so many amazing pictures. He gets so excited when working behind the camera (even while he was getting splashed) and getting those perfect unique pictures. I can't wait for our next photo shoot!

Karen Bagley, Event Manager North Shore TourDeCure

Randy and Dan were fantastic to work with. As a non-profit event manager, finding skilled photographers willing to work with us is difficult to say the least. Randy and Dan exceeded our expectations! Not only are the photographs from our event fantastic, but more importantly our cyclists, volunteers and staff members all commented on how pleasant Randy and Dan were to work with; this level of customer service is invaluable as it’s a top priority for us. I look forward to working with them for many events to come!

Trista Manchuso

My sister and I brought our three young children to Randy and Caroline's studio in West Concord this winter and were blown away by how great the experiece was. It's not easy getting a three and four year old to cooperate, yet Randy and Caroline made it look like a breeze. They had music playing and the kids were singing and dancing... they thought it was such a fun experience. After the photos were done both Caroline and Randy were so patient while we made decisions on what pictures to choose- which was impossible as all the shots were amazing! Without a doubt we'll be returning to the Brogen's for our next family picture : )

Chris Woodford

My daughter went to Randy and Caroline's home studio to have a head shot taken to submit with her applications to college acting programs. The Brogen's made Grace feel completely at ease with the process. Randy and Caroline explained the process as they went along and my daughter was able to select the perfect shot before we left the studio! The photo captured her spirit and personality just perfectly. She will be at school in Boston in September studying acting and I have no doubt that the Brogen's skill and talents behind the camera had a great deal to do with Grace's success in the audition process!

Sara and Steve Zirkel, Concord, MA

We had the great pleasure of working with Caroline and Randy for a family photo session with our two teens.Not only were the proofs and pictures beyond beautiful, I can't say enough about how kind, patient, and professional they both were as they took picture after picture of our family...adjusting for all the "teen angst and drama" that we are so used to, but they took in stride!They will surely be seeing us again when Senior Photos are needed!

Kelly Simard

We had a great photo shoot experience with Randy. He was really able to capture my girls' true personalities in the photos. I have been to numerous photographers and Randy is by far the best to work with. Quality of photos, variety of poses and overall experience was excellent and we can't wait to do another shoot!

Carol Brazina

Your pictures are beyond words. God gave you a good eye and gift for photography and it really shows.. picture of Sloane is great, thats my grandchild. you sure love what you do, it really shows.

Susannah Locketti, TV personality and food expert for

I had the privilege of working with Randy to update my headshots. Randy is meticulous with his work and makes every step of the way fun and creative. I felt beyond comfortable with Randy. Shooting headshots can be fatal if you don't have someone behind the camera that allows you to be yourself. Randy brought out the best in me, captured my true essence and took photos I will treasure beyond my work in entertainment. It is not often on a photo shoot that you are encouraged to stop and smell the roses in life and Randy did just that. I'll remember our shoot forever and the pictures came out stunning. Not to mention he is prompt, met all deadlines and provided status updates every step of the way. A true pro to work with.

Steve O'Brien

We travel all over the country with our son, who is a diver on the team and by far you take the best pictures! Have you ever considered a shot half underwater half above? I have never seen one done. You should see if you can post some pictures at the Beede!

Carol Adey, Vice President at CresaPartners

Randy Is by far the most creative, reliable, dependable, photographer. He provides helpful direction and a creative approach to what could be viewed as a mundane assignment, I really appreciate his ability to challenge, in a very positive manner, an assignment and thru this process the results have leapfrogged my organization in the eyes of our visitors and members. I highly recommend his work.
