Read what some of our valued clients have to say about their experiences working with Roger Wade Studio, Inc.:

"Architectural Digest was my life from 1981 through 2010 and, as photographer director, I got to know Roger Wade and his work quite well. His talent, knowledge and images speak volumns in the world of photography."

"We have used a number of photographers, but Roger is, without a doubt, the most professional we have come across. Roger just gets it. Turn him loose for a day and you are going to get well crafted, useful photographs.

Over the years I have witnessed Roger and Debbie assembling, lighting and photographing images in a very careful fashion. Their meticulous professional preparation ensures usable images that have been instrumental in our firm winning a number of awards."

"Through Roger's lenses my homes come to life for the world to see. One magazine cover and feature story could be chalked up to timing or luck. Five covers and two best home designs of the year from three photo shoots is plain ole genius!"

"Debbie and Roger are, bar none, the best architectural and interior design photography team in the business. They each play a crucial role, with Debbie setting up the décor and Roger getting that perfect shot with his camera.

They have helped me showcase my work for the last 20 years and their portfolio speaks for itself. It is always a delight to work with them - true professionals. Thank you for all your help over the years."

"It is hard to verbalize the internal feeling I get when I see great photography. The strength and emotion of each photograph that is created by Roger and Debbie is beyond a thousand words and they are truly experts in the field of architectural and interior design photography. My portfolio wouldn’t be as strong as it is without their contribution.

Thank you for all of your efforts, I look forward to working with you on all of our future projects!"

"I’ve been fortunate to see first-hand how professional and thorough Roger and Debbie are on a shoot. Roger is not willing to miss a good shot, and Debbie seems to know instinctively what the next one will be. They’re a great team."

"Roger Wade Studio has been our architectural photographer for several years now and I am sure it is a relationship that we will have for many more. The quality of the photographs, level of professionalism and marketing that Roger provides us with is second to none in the industry.

I am often asked why we use a photographer from so far away and all I have to do is show them the work and they understand immediately. Once the shoot is complete, Roger and his staff continue to find placement for our work in many national magazines which has increased our exposure tremendously. We are very thankful to have such a talented studio working with us on our projects!"

"Roger has been a specialist in capturing the beauty of log and timber homes for decades. We go through an extensive selection process for the images we include in our magazines [Log Home Living, Timber Home Living & Country's Best Cabins] and Roger’s work has frequently been our choice.

His images have appeared in many, many home features and graced our covers innumerable times. Roger’s keen photographic eye and Debbie’s styling make a winning combination!"

"The photos that Roger and Debbie provide us for our marketing materials have proven invaluable over time in conveying our architectural vision to prospective clients. Roger’s acute eye for capturing inspiration, captivating control of light within the architectural space, and tireless marketing of the photos post production add tremendous value to each of our shoots, and we look forward to each day when the final proofs arrive in the mail."

"We appreciate that we not only get incredible quality photographs but we also get the benefit of their long standing relationship to the publications we want to be featured in."

"Having been a cabinet maker/designer for 42 years, I've seen many changes in home designs. Roger and Debbie have been our chosen photographers for almost 20 years! When it comes to architectural photography, Roger has an eye for detail second to none! As I look around our office and showroom, I see 85 photos taken by Roger and Debbie representing our work all across the country. My first recommendation for outstanding photography is always Roger Wade Studio, and always will be!"

"Roger Wade has been our ‘go-to’ photographer for the last 15 years and he has done a great job for us."

"For nearly 20 years Roger Wade and Debbie Grahl have been documenting the homes that we have created throughout the country. Roger’s photography and Debbie’s styling have resulted in over 30 national magazine editorials and two published coffee table books exclusively on the homes of Town & Country. Our strong positive national image is largely due to the efforts of this talented team."

"The photographs you took for us were amazing. You knew exactly what angle would create the optimal shot. The two of you produced such extraordinary photographs that when we saw them, we got quite emotional.

Sometimes people think that they can take their own photographs with all the new equipment out there but they are mistaken. To capture the essence of a place and translate its primal beauty into a photograph can only be done by the very best artists. Roger did that for us. You were passionate about getting fabulous shots and worked diligently to attain them. We enjoyed the entire process and were blown away by the end result."

"What a great team to work with! Debbie is a terrific stylist and Roger is the consummate photographer.

I've worked with this team for many, many years and they're always professional and always a pleasure."

"Roger Wade Studio has satisfied our professional photography needs for over ten years now. Roger's eye for what people want to see from an architect, along with Debbie's talent in styling each shot, results in a final product which has continually been beyond our expectations.

Roger, Debbie and their staff have always been more than accommodating to us in arranging photo shoots around our clients' busy schedules and their attention to detail throughout has pleased both ourselves and our clients."

"I became President and 50% owner of Woodhouse in August of 2004 and, over the next few months, tried a number of architectural photographers to update our portfolio and gallery. I used Roger and Debbie in early 2005 and have never used another studio to photograph our timber frame projects. They are artists and the difference between their photography and others is palpable. They have truly made a difference in our business."

"Working with Roger Wade and Debra Grahl has been a particularly pleasant experience. Their artistry and cooperation during the photo shoots of my firm’s projects has been highly skilled. They were always willing to consider my input and usually helped improve my ideas. The net result has been excellent photography that represents the architecture beautifully."

"We have had the good fortune of working with Roger and Debbie going on about 20 years now and we have never been disappointed. Their level of quality, experience and professionalism surpasses all the other photographers we have worked with and we will certainly continue to use them whenever the opportunity arises.

Roger and Debbie have been a huge part of our marketing efforts for many years and not only have they been responsible for securing countless magazine features for us, they have helped us create a "brand" name for our homes. I highly recommend the services of Roger Wade Studio. Roger and Debbie are the best in the industry, and they always bring out the best in every home they shoot."

"I have worked with Roger and Debbie for roughly 10 years and I love what they do. We build fantastic homes and they make them sparkle in pictures. If it wasn’t for Roger Wade Studio’s work, our portfolio wouldn’t be half of what it is today."

"We just within minutes got our copy [of Architectural Digest]. We can't thank you enough. What wonderful shots. How great we could be a part of this tribute to Mits. We just finished reading the article and near in unison announced we should get an email off to you both.

Hope everything works out well for you, great talent should never be marginalized. People need the hope and joy Roger captures. We think warmly of you both often and truly appreciate your incredible talent."
