Fine Art Nature and Landscape Print Reviews

Seneca Creek Photography milky way metal print 30x40 fine art photography

“The print we ordered was on metal and very large. I feared that it would be heavy and possibly hard to hang on the wall. The print was not heavy at all. I had minimal problems hanging the print. I was done with the project in 30 minutes and I suspect it will be hanging in that spot for a very long time with no issues. We ordered a large print on metal so the investment was considerable for our regular ol’ middle class family. We thought long and hard before making this purchase. It was our one major art purchase to accompany the closing on our new home. The process of ordering the print and paying for it online was very easy. We had many options on how to actually receive the print. We chose to pick it up ourselves at the studio. The whole process was enjoyable, and easy. No regrets. We live in Laramie, Wyoming. We love the mountains and outdoors. Of course these photos are spectacular, but the fact that they are taken in Wyoming and many are taken in the places we hike explore as a family make them that much more spectacular and personal to us. The artist is a local artist. Her love of the area and the outdoors is evident in her photographs. And you feel that when you look at her prints.”

“So pleased to finally get my first metal print. I have intended to get the print since I first saw Allison’s work 2 years back as a reward for a first big contract. How time flies. Love the website and I was sure what I wanted until I finally got into the studio and found I wanted something else. Ah well… The Milky Way over the tent print grabbed my eye and I had to have it! Now it hangs in my office. Of course my wife wanted it, but NO! I guess I’ll have to get her one (not the same one of course). I also discovered Allison’s portraits. And the lake in the moonlight. So little time – so many great prints. I also highly recommend the postcards as gifts.”

“The mini metals turned out great. The conference manager (who tasked me with finding Wyoming gifts) really liked them. I look forward to seeing how the international visitors like them. I think these will be a real hit with our international folks. The investment was just right. They are sooooo pretty. Great gift ideas or treat yourself. The prints are lovely ….and so Wyoming”

– Jayne, mini metal print collector from Wyoming

“The only concern I ever had was whether or not a poor college student like myself would have money to comfortably purchase local art, but with a little self-discipline and a lot of burning desire, I saved a little every month and managed to buy every piece from most of the artists I had been longing to hang on my walls. The only fear I had was financial and voila… big deal, I say! I’m so happy. So, so happy. Every time I’ve had the pleasure of viewing Seneca Creek Studio’s collection, there was always one print I could never stop staring at, despite how beautiful all the others were. It just resonated with me and now I can look at it whenever I want to feel that connection. I love that there’s no up or down, no right side up. The print I got is taken as though you’re craning your neck to look up through the trees and see the awe-inspiring night sky. It’s a view I’ve known all too well throughout my life. That view holds some of the fondest memories I have with my mother who has passed, as well as being the foundation of my ever-growing friendship with my father. That view is from family reunions, the old cabin I used to sneak into, and from my childhood home. It’s a part of who I am and what I hold dear. I’m so happy there’s an artist who shares that same love who can provide me with evidence that I’m not just fantasizing the beauty of those moments and that view. To anyone who has a connection with nature, I strongly recommend looking into the prints at Seneca Creek Studios. It’s not often that connection is portrayed so well through photography. Allison Pluda clearly has a love for the wild world around her and how lucky are we that she can visually portray what we are all feeling when we take a moment to sit in the great outdoors.”

– Charlotte, print collector from Wyoming

“The Wind River Valley scene shows off the red rocks brilliantly, making it one of the most gorgeous views of that landscape that I’ve ever seen”

– Michael Shay, Studio Wyoming Review & WyoFile

“Pluda captures the cloudscape in living color. It appears menacing and beautiful at the same time. If you look at it long enough, you can imagine the bottom part of the cloud that juts out into the prairie as the prow of or a warship or a super-tanker. We’ve all heard summer clouds compared to sailing ships. But this photo just reinforces the industrial-strength power of a super-cell as it navigates the sky. Both human-made structures and natural landscapes can remind us of the transience of existence.”

– Michael Shay, Studio Wyoming Review & WyoFile

“The metal prints actually exceeded my expectations. They are beautiful. The colors really pop, more than in an actual photo. Also, they are very lightweight and were extremely easy to bring to my office and mount on the wall. Also, I am not concerned about fading due to sun exposure, which is a real bonus in that it allows for a greater selection of places to hang them.”

– James, metal print collector from Pennsylvania

“I’ve had portraits taken by Allison and also bought some of her landscape photography. She is fun and easy to work with and her photographs are gorgeous. Both the metal and paper prints I’ve purchased have been high quality and exactly as advertised.”

Her additional services, from printing to design work, make working with Allison easy and straight forward. Thank you for capturing what is most important to me, and giving me the ability to share it with others in my life. A session with Allison, whether at a a destination or in the studio, is not a typical “photography session”. Instead, Allison creates an environment where you might not even know you’re out having your photos taken, because she makes the experience so laid-back. She lists to me when I have ideas for what I would like captured, and definitely delivers on her promise. Her creativity helps provide some really unique, photo-journalistic, authentic images. If you’d like an experience that is professional and creative, call Seneca Creek Studios!”

“Allison was professional, welcoming, listened to our teenage son and made him feel comfortable with her and with being photographed. Best of all, she helped him to “own” his senior photo shoot. She made the actual shoot magical. The photos speak volumes. She captured him. The photos are beautiful. But we had to decide on which ones we wanted! Would recommend Seneca Creek to anyone.”

– Cheryl Kirkpatrick, proud mother

“[I was worried] that I’d have a bunch of really crappy pictures of me that made me look like a posed idiot. And no, it did not come true. She edited the shoot before I saw it, for one thing, so I didn’t see the really horrid shots. Also, she put me at ease and let me do what I was comfortable doing, so, no surprise that she caught a very real portrait of who I am. And she did some incredibly lovely pet portraits for me that were a super bonus. My mom’s going to love them. I really, really, really love the photos! She caught me laughing and happy and at ease in my surroundings. Allison [is] a very good photographer, very willing to work with any ideas you might have, and a very good source of ideas herself. That she was friendly and no pressure, that she was collaborative and had great equipment that she knows how to use well. That she brought very positive energy to the photo shoot! Allison provides technical expertise, a beautiful eye for setting up a shot, and a super collaborative, friendly demeanor that makes a photo shoot with her pure fun.. whether its for people , bands, or pets. I can attest to all three. Thank you!”

– Jordan

“I was concernced that I may run out of interesting ‘dance poses’. I’d done some research on dance photography to try to find some interesting ideas, but posing has always felt awkward for me. Allison had the best idea though—put on some music and dance! She was able to photograph me while I was ‘in action’, and the best pictures came from that. It was such a fun and rewarding experience for me. Seeing myself in my element, dancing, reinforces my belief that this is an important part of my life. I hope that my pictures inspire others to do what it is that they love. Allison is such an easy photographer to work with. She understands how important it is to catch those moments of you being you, and she knows how to do that.”

– Karen from Sireli Dance

“Allison did a wonderful job! Can’t recommend her highly enough. I got my headshots done and a professional shot of my husband and I. It was a great experience from start to finish!!”

– Kimberly Bell, wife and realtor at The Acre Company in Laramie, Wyoming

“Laramie artist Allison Pluda has an eye for how women are typically viewed and depicted in photographs and challenges those conventions letting each participant have a say in how the photos might appear. I was worried I wouldn’t have the right clothes, etc. but I embraced the situation and was just myself! Hoodies and all. It’s been a very positive experience with Seneca Creek Studios, and all in all an excellent learning/networking opportunity for me as a yogi/runner/blogger who is fairly fresh into her professional career. Allison is extremely professional, yet laid back. She is passionate about her work and has insight and vision that bring the best out of anyone.”

– Jen Banks, runner, yogi, and blogger

“A welcoming atmosphere and relaxed photo shoot. Thank you for a great time! The photos turned out even better than I imagined! Thank you for your patience with my schedule and hospitality to my kids!”

Tara Collier, artist and mother of two boys

“I thought it was a great experience. I love my studio and was happy that Allison photographed me in it. I thought the feeling of the session translated nicely into the photographs. Very happy with the results! Allison is up for an adventure!”

– Rachelle Rose, Clothing Desinger and owner of Fibercation

“Allison is amazing to work with. See was perfect and easy going during our in studio engagement photos, made wonderful Christmas Cards and was amazing at our wedding remaining calm and being easy going yet professional all day. She takes amazing photos and I am always pleased with how I look. When there was a slight hiccup, she went above and beyond to fix it and make it right. She is a great photographer and amazing to work with!”

“I am super ambivalent about photos of me. They make me uncomfortable. But they are also fascinating since me being me I never really see me. I see everyone else, right? But all that dissolved as we had FUN. Crazy, no boundaries, creative, spontaneous FUN. Even if there were no product coming out of [the shoot], the great memories would remain, and the experience is enough.”

– Paula J. Wilson-Cazier, artist

“Allison is friendly and professional, and doesn’t make you feel like you are on the spot or posing for the camera. She has a great eye for composition and since she captures creative moments, the shoot is fun and the prints are excellent. The prints look great on our wall, and they are such a sweet and intimate capture of our memories.”

“Loved working with Allison on the Wild Women project. She made the whole experience enjoyable and easy for someone (me) who is camera shy. The small book she printed with my selected images were a great gift to my husband! I’ll be using other images on my websites and FB. Thanks, Allison, for your willingness to be creative and patient, and for the tips on presenting my best side and character!!”

Wendy Lemen Bredehoft, artist

“Allison is amazing and her work is very professional. I would recommend her to anyone in southeastern Wyoming that needs a photographer for any occasion.”

– Bailey

“My biggest fear ahead of time was that my only smile would be a forced one, due to fear.. It has happened in the past & it is quite sad. No it didn’t come true, because Allison is a professional & knows how to get people to relax.. I had a reasonably good time, considering I am shy at heart… I’m so glad I was brave & faced my “Sisutal” (That’s Nootka Indian women’s word for Greatest Fear). I liked having options all along the way. Allison is DYNOMITE!! You’ll be glad you did it, so do it!!”

– Gail Shive artist

“I hadn’t really had a professional portrait taken — not even at our wedding– so I was nervous. I also don’t usually like photos of myself — I usually have my eyes closed or a goofy look on my face. The session with Allison was a great deal more fun than I thought it would be. When John and I started “playing” as Allison encouraged, the Wild Woman just popped out. I’d like to do it again and, yes, be a face of MS. Have this woman take your portrait!!!! She lets you experiment, is non-judgmental, and brings out the best!”

– Landra Rezebeck

I highly recommend any of her many great services!”
