"I cannot say enough about my experience with Rhonda. The pictures she took will always be treasured reminders of this special time in our lives. I couldn’t be happier with the photos they are exactly what I wanted and more. Rhonda was so gentle and loving with my son. She did a fabulous job of capturing his cute personality as a newborn. Her customer service is superior & turnaround time can't be beat. "
~  Kim - Hollandale WI
"We have gone to Rhonda for family pictures on two different occasions and will absolutely return! Rhonda was able to portray my kids' personalities so well that seeing the pictures brought me to tears....incredible! Rhonda was so flexible- she fit us in very last minute, had proofs back to us in a couple days and allowed us total freedom for our session...Thanks to Rhonda for pictures I am proud to hang on my walls for years to come"   :)
~ Dixie - Oshkosh WI

"I heard about Happy Times Photography through one of my friends that had Rhonda as their wedding photographer. I looked at my friend's album and Rhonda's website and decided that she would be great for our wedding! We first had engagement pictures taken at Rhonda's home, and they turned out great! Rhonda kept in touch with me throughout the year and during wedding planning. We decided to have an outdoor wedding, and we were really impressed that Rhonda came to the wedding rehearsal to snap some pictures and prepare for the best photo shots for the big day. We also couldn't believe Rhonda's wedding photo prices, we got a great deal! We will continue to recommend Happy Times Photography to family and friends! We recently found out that we are having a baby, so will be back for family pictures soon"  :)

Hi Rhonda!
 "Just a short note regarding our wedding day!  We could not have imagined anyone else taking our wedding photos for us!  You did an AMAZING job with all of us and the pictures turned out incredible!  I am not sure how you stayed so calm when everyone else seemed to be SO scattered!  I love how you captured the "just breathe moment" I was having before the ceremony!!!" :)
 We have a wall in our living room with several large wedding canvas prints hanging next to a simply said saying "Having someone to love is family, having somewhere to go is home, having both is a blessing."  The pictures look phenomenal.......Everyone commented on what a great photographer we had and how warm and friendly you were!  The candid pictures you captured at the reception with the kids and the guests were wonderful!  "Thanks Rhonda for being part of our special day and for taking all of the incredible pictures you did!"
~ Mr & Mrs Bradley Barbian -  Waunakee, WI

"One word, Amazing! Happy Times Photography fulfilled and exceeded our expectations. Initially I was reluctant about having some maternity photos taken. But knew of Rhonda and right from the start, her pleasant, easy-going personality make me feel comfortable. And I appreciated that she was open to ideas I had to really personalize our photo session. Attention to detail, while offering a variety of options truly produced some amazing photos that we'll cherish about our first pregnancy,  now we are looking forward to welcoming the baby soon and having some newborn photos taken to continue this exciting chapter. Without a doubt, we'd love to have Rhonda capture our 'happy times' moments throughout the years"  :-)
~ Brenda - Hollandale WI

"Working with Rhonda was very convenient and fun at the same time. Unlike most photographers, Rhonda's focus was on me and everything and anything that I wanted. The quality of Rhonda's work is almost unrealistic for the price you pay. Also Rhonda was very convenient when it comes to traveling. She allowed me to take pictures where ever I wanted. Happy Times Photography is truly the best choice when it comes to capturing the milestones in your life you always want to remember and share with others. Rhonda always got me to smile and showed me that smiles truly are contagious!"  :)
~  Jenna - 2011 Sauk City WI Senior

"I finally got around to getting my son Brock's pictures done now that he is 8 months old. I had seen Rhonda's amazing work and had heard so many great things from so many people. I made an appointment and she got me in when it was convenient for me. She was so good with Brock. She captured every smile and the perfect poses which can be very hard with an infant. She let me chose the outfits I wanted and she even came up with the perfect little fireman idea which turned out perfect. In the future I will only take Brock to Happy Times. Eventually I plan on using Rhonda for my wedding photographer when that time comes. Thanks for the great experience, Rhonda!!!!"
~ Melissa  - Blanchardville WI

"Rhonda did a great job taking my son's senior pictures and our family pictures.  We had our pictures taken on the hottest day of the 2010 summer.  Rhonda kept us all looking and feeling calm, cool, and collected.  We felt like wilting but she made our pictures look amazing.  She had so many options for both indoors and outdoors.  Rhonda really listened to what we wanted and accommodated our wishes.  I have recommended Rhonda to my family and friends and will continue to recommend her.  Rhonda has a rare gift that is only given to a few photographers, she doesn't just take the pictures she captures the moment."
~ Wendy and family - Monroe WI

"Rhonda was great to work with. She was very patient and very creative in coming up with unique picture ideas for my children. It was nice to have time to review your proofs and not have to make an instant decision about which pictures and how many to order. We will definitely work with Rhonda again and will recommend her to all our family and friends!"
~ Morgan - Barneveld WI

"All though it was blazing hot and my granddaughter said "No" every time we asked her if she wanted her picture taken, Rhonda did an excellent job of capturing her.  I have been asked by many who took our family pictures and I am happy to tell them who took our wonderful pictures."
~ Jean O - Mt Horeb WI

"My husband Bobby and I have been taking our son Will to have his pictures taken by Rhonda since he was 6 months old; he just turned 2 recently. We always are very happy with the pictures that she takes and we get them back very quickly for a great price. We are expecting our second child and we will definitely continue to have all of our family and kids pictures taken by Happy Times Photography! We love that Rhonda’s studio set up is in the basement of her home, it makes it that more personal. Happy Times Photography has a fun relaxing atmosphere with lots of props and fun ideas for pictures. I love that Rhonda asks you for cute ideas of pictures that you may like to try. She is the kind of photographer that will try anything and go anywhere to get a great picture of your kids or family! Thanks so much Rhonda for all the amazing photos you’ve taken. We look forward to all that are still to come!"
~ Bobby and Britni  – Barneveld WI

"Happy Times Photography is amazing! I was extremely nervous about getting my senior pictures done because I wanted them to be PERFECT! Well, I sure went to the right place! I had the best senior picture experience that I could ask for. The prices were reasonable, the location was wonderful, the session was so much fun, and my pictures were better than I could have imagined. Rhonda did an amazing job capturing some great pictures. She took her time and made me feel very comfortable. I left the session with some wonderful memories, beautiful pictures, and a smile on my face. For anyone looking to get phenomenal photographs, go to Happy Times Photography!"  
~ Sabrina  - 2011 Mt Horeb WI Senior

"Happy Times Photography did an amazing job shooting our 18 month old twins. Our twins were not exactly "easy" and did not want to sit still, but the results are fantastic! Rhonda was very patient, had great ideas, and was very flexible about doing what our twins had in their own minds. We are so happy with the results of our photo session and we have beautiful pictures of our twins. Also, Rhonda is super easy to work with- awesome with communication and getting everything done! We will definitely use Rhonda again in the future and recommend her work to all!"  :) 
~ Janeen - Cross Plains WI

"Rhonda's eye for detail and patience makes her an exceptional photographer. She captured moment of my girls and family that I will cherish forever. Her passion for photography and smiles is contagious, thanks Rhonda for an wonderful experience. We look forward to another session! Anyone who can pull off photographing three girls all under the age of 5 with success should win an award and Rhonda pulled it off with no problem. I can't say enough good things about Rhonda or our session, her energy is amazing! She'll be capturing our Smiles for years to come."                                                      
~ Kristan - Waunakee WI

"Rhonda came to our photo location on the day and time our family could get together.  That attention meant so much."                                                                                                                       
~ Carla - Cross Plains WI

"We had another amazing experience with Happy Times Photography! We had our family pictures taken for the first time in years and Rhonda was a delight to work with as usual. We absolutely loved the final product and would recommend her to any of our family or friends." :)
~ Chris & Amanda - Poynette WI

We were married July 17, 2010 and our experience working with Rhonda could not have been better. Rhonda always stayed in touch with us and calmed my nerves! She made sure she knew exactly what pictures we wanted done, etc. Not only that, but she is the first photographer I have ever seen at a wedding at 11:00 pm! She truly captured our day perfectly and we couldn't have asked for more. After looking through pictures there were people that came that we were unaware of and were happy to have pictures of those moments! Thank you for everything, Rhonda. We will never forget the best day of our lives!
~ Lindsay & Frank - Mt Horeb WI

"We choose Rhonda to take our children's photos (ages 4 years and 9 months) because we had heard WONDERFUL things about her, and her photos.... and boy am I glad I found her!! The hour drive to get to her was WELL worth it!! The pictures turned out even more precious than I could have ever imagined!  Rhonda was so PATIENT, SWEET, and FUN!  She was full of ideas, and she has a never ending supply of props!  We will be back again, and again and AGAIN!!  Thanks Rhonda!!"
~  Heather, Jeromey, Jaymin and Jordan - Muscoda, WI

"Rhonda did a wonderful job on my engagement pictures and wedding photos. She was very fun and exciting to work with, I have never seen a photographer be so involved in what she does. She was very cooperative and easy to work with considering we had a very hot day for our wedding photos! :) All of the pictures she did are very special .  Some of the poses and things she made us do, I would never imagine doing, but they turned out beautiful!  I highly recommend her if you're looking for a photographer!!!  Thanks again Rhonda for all your hard work and the fun we got to share with you during this special time. The pictures are amazing!!!!
~ Cassie and Richie - Dodgeville WI

"Happy Times Photography has done senior and wedding photos so far for our family and we couldn’t be happier with Rhonda.  The beautiful setting provides many choices of backgrounds and Rhonda is so easy to work with, it’s as if she’s known you for years the minute you meet her. The relaxed atmosphere results in beautiful, professional and reasonably priced photos.   Rhonda has become our official “family photographer” and friend and will be for many years to come."                                                                                  
~ Randy and Jodi - Deforest WI

"Happy Times Photography is awesome! Rhonda did an excellent job working with me and my family. My senior son actually got into the swing of having his picture taken because of Rhonda and her ideas. And our family picture went so well we could do this every year. Rhonda had the flexibility of using any idea in which we would recommend. Rhonda was able to meet us where we wanted and this was much more appealing to our family. We have gotten nothing but excellent reviews from everyone that has seen the final project. We have had such fun sharing the photos. I would recommend Happy Times Photography to everyone!!!! Thanx!!!" 
~ Rhoda - 2011 Belleville WI Senior Mom

"My family was looking to update our photos before our son went off to college.  Our time was limited, as was our budget.  Rhonda worked us into her busy schedule and worked within our budget.  She produced high quality photos which were both unique and professional.  She had ideas of her own for posing, but also asked us what we wanted to do!  Her personal touch, the time she takes to get to know you, and the opportunity for you to orchestrate your own photo shoot is what made this experience a truly remarkable one." 
~ Erin  - Belleville WI

"We couldn't be more pleased with our entire experience with Happy Times Photography.  Rhonda came highly recommended to us by a trusted friend and she didn’t steer us wrong.  Rhonda’s politeness and willingness to travel to our home for my son’s senior photos was exhilarating.  Rhonda immediately put us all to ease and we just had fun with the project.  She got the best shots within the first 20 minutes but kept on shooting.  We even had time to get a few fun family photos which made great Christmas cards (which we are still getting compliments on).  Thank for such a great experience – the name is befitting – it was Happy Times at our house while you were there.  We will definitely use your services again when our daughter graduates or when we need a family photo!”
~ Lea – 2011 Mt Horeb WI Senior Mom

"Working with Rhonda at Happy Times Photography for my senior portraits was a great experience. It was all about "me", and the shots I wanted to capture to remember my senior year.  I had a blast trying different poses and making everything my own! It was a very personal experience which made it all the more special!"  :)
~ Hannah - 2011 Deforest WI Senior

"Rhonda did my 50th Wedding Anniversary Party for me and she was wonderful, this is the second time I have used her and we will be using her again in the fall, I would recommend her to anyone, she is great!"                                                                                       
~ Gerisue - Belleville WI

"Rhonda did a amazing job on my family pictures and engagement photo's. She even made my 2 yr. old smile alot which is hard to do for pictures... :) I can't wait for my wedding photo's to be taken by Happy Times, this summer!!!!!!" :)                                                
~ Tara - Dodgeville WI

“I’m very impressed with the mobility of Happy Times Photography.  Rhonda brought all of her equipment to us! We had our pictures taken in the basement of my sister’s house. You would never have known, the pictures turned out great, same quality as if we would have went to a studio!  We had a pretty large group, 13 people, ranging from 4 weeks old to 52 years old.  Rhonda was able to keep everyone’s attention and poses even the 2 and 3 year old, who will not sit still for anything, were posed and had nice smiles. Pictures are a once in a lifetime event.  Pictures you take today can never be replaced.  Rhonda made a memory for us, we have fantastic pictures to treasure for a life time. Thank you Rhonda!”                                                                                                                                  
~ Jami - Waterloo WI

"My experience with Happy Times Photography was like no other I've experienced. Rhonda has a great eye in taking pictures. She has that kind hearted touch to every picture she takes. I'll never go anywhere else again for my family pictures. She is reasonable and so close. Thank u Rhonda for making such a hot day enjoyable. Keep up the great work!" 
~ Jenni - Barneveld WI

"Rhonda did an amazing job with my wedding photos! She was easy to work with and did a great job in catching all of the best moments. My family and friends were all very impressed with the pictures. She took pictures of things that I would never have even thought of (rings, flowers, programs) and it helps me to remember every little detail of the day! My wedding was at a ski hill and Rhonda rode the chairlift to the top of the hill with us to catch some amazing shots of my husband and I riding the chairlift and the view behind us on the top of the hill. I love my pictures! Thanks Rhonda!"
~ Brooke  - Oregon WI

"Happy Time Photography provided my family with the best photo experience we have ever had !!!!  The first time we had Rhonda take our whole family picture for my parents 60th Wedding Anniversary, having a group of 20 people, including 4 little ones....it was the most natural photograph and she even cropped a pair of open eyes into the photo we picked !!!!" 
"Our 2nd experience with Rhonda was a picture of my immediate family...My oldest daughter had just had twins and we wanted pictures to send out in our Christmas cards...she did not have the twins until 11/12 and Rhonda came down and took the pictures, got the proofs back to us and we had them in time to send them out in our cards....She was so accommodating and sooooo good with the kids, ages 8,3,2, and 3 wk old twins !!!  Happy Times Photography is now the only photographer for our family !!!" 
~ Kathi - Watertown WI

"Our first experience using Rhonda as our photographer was wonderful. Two year old little girls don't always want to cooperate, but Rhonda made Katelynne feel so comfortable and just let her have fun.  We absolutely love our pictures of Katelynne they are perfect and we couldn't be happier with them!"
~  Heather - Blanchardville WI

"We were very pleased with the outcome of the pictures.  Everyone that saw them were very impressed.  They had a very hard time picking which pose they wanted, since they were all so good.  Thank you Rhonda, and we look forward to having you take our pictures again!!"  
~ Jenny - Barneveld WI

"Rhonda's enthusiasm and easy going nature made what could have been a stressful occasion thoroughly enjoyable.  We especially loved the outdoor shots.  We had a large variety of excellent pictures to choose from and were able to select a variety of poses since we weren't limited by package pricing."
~ Nancy -  2011 Madison WI Senior Mom

"Our experience with Rhonda was a very memorable one! She made the whole process very easy for us. From the engagement photos all the way to the reception, she worked diligently to make sure she captured all the wonderful memories. Not only was she flexible with time she was also open to hearing our ideas. We appreciate all of her hard work & would definitely recommend her!"
~  Megan  - Mt Horeb WI

"Our experience with Happy Times photography was awesome. Rhonda made my daughter feel very comfortable which resulted in fantastic Senior portraits. Her setting both in and out of the studio gave many choices for poses and backgrounds. Rhonda is so personable and the whole experience was top notch!"
~ Michelle - 2011 Mt Horeb WI Senior Mom

"I had Rhonda take my son's senior pictures and I think she did the most awesomest job ever. Cody is a really shy guy and isn't really into getting his picture taken but Rhonda's happy personality and kindness got Cody out of his shell and into some really awesome pictures. I think they capture his personality totally. I would and have recommended Rhonda to anyone and everyone. Thanks for the great job Rhonda and I look forward to you capturing some more smiles of my family" :)   
~ Debbie - 2011 Monroe WI Senior Mom

"Rhonda I just want to thank you for taking our photos. They turned out just wonderful. You did a great job and you work very well with children who do not want to cooperate and get their picture taken.  Thank You!"  
~ Katie - Lodi WI

"Thank you so much!  You did such a nice job putting Melissa at ease.  Her pictures turned out so well!  We've received so many compliments on them.  I'll be sure to share your name with others I may run into who have kids graduating or any picture needs."
