Joe is a true professional.  I received several confirmations and reminders prior to our scheduled photo session.  Additionally, Joe sent over recommendations to help create a successful, stress-less and beautiful photo session.  The package of completed photos was sent shortly following the scheduled session.

Joe and Sonja met me and my family at Baldwin Park in Orlando for a photo session. I highly recommend booking your next family photo session with Joe Leone Photography/ 13th Hour! Joe and Sonja were kind, patient and accommodating throughout the entire session. Additionally, the photos were shared quickly following the session.

Joe and Sonja were absolutely wonderful to work with. We traveled from St. Louis Missouri and found Joe via Yelp and booked a month in advance. Sonja was wonderful getting our 10 month old to smile and held her while Joe took pictures of my husband and I which I did not expect having a 10 month old. Our family pictures are amazing, I could not be happier. Joe takes very beautiful photos and I recommend to any family visiting the Tampa area. Thank you very much Joe and Sonja!

As an experienced Realtor, I have used Joe Leone many times to photograph my homes for sale and he has always done an excellent job in showing off my properties. He has extensive knowledge of how to produce a quality real estate photo that displays the best features to attract home buyers. I highly recommend him to real estate agents and also as a fine family photographer.

Joe’s landscape Photography is out of this world! Taking outdoor photos is not only Joe’s business, it’s his passion and it shows in each and everyone of his photos!

Joe is extremely kind, professional, talented, patient, and so much more! He’s done my personal pictures, some of my daughter at 7 years old, and some of my newborn son. My family and I use Joe Leone anytime we can! Since we live out of town now, it’s a little hard, but I have made the 5 hour drive for him! There’s not many people I would trust to truly capture a moment for me, but Joe is definitely number 1 in my book!
— Kelsey S.
Joe Leone is very hard working and kind. I have worked with him on multiple sessions both by myself and with my family. He takes his time to get the perfect shot and has so much patience when dealing with a difficult 2 year old. I never want to use another photographer again. I look forward to our next session and enjoy seeing the work he does in between. You will not regret working with him.

Joe has taken real estate photos for me on 2 properties in South Tampa so far. Gorgeous photos! The best communication. Fast turnaround. He is professional and trustworthy. Interior property photos are tough especially in bathrooms and laundry rooms....he is always able to capture the best angles and complete features of every room. Thanks again, Joe!

Fantastic to work with you Joe! The shoot was fun and doubled as quality time with my girls. Getting the finished product in the mail today was far quicker than I imagined. Looking forward to working with you again!!

Joe was absolutely wonderful during a recent family photo session. My family lives all over the country and had not had a decent photo taken in 20 years. Joe captured the most beautiful images of us together...truly priceless. I am forever grateful & highly recommend him to anyone looking for a photographer.

Would like to note how easy it was to get in touch with him to arrange the photos - he immediately sent a confirmation email, called and introduced himself. He was so personable, professional and kind.

Joe is amazing!! He makes you feel comfortable and knows his stuff, yet he lets you bring your own flare to your pictures. Very patient and takes his time making sure that shots are just right, so nothing looks out of place in your pictures. I don’t plan on going to anyone else for my pictures!
