Some nice letters from the people in front of the camera.


Thank you SO much for these incredible [Bat Mitzvah] photos. And thank you for making our daughter feel so relaxed and so special, she really enjoyed it very much!! We don’t post on social media, but I will be sure to recommend you to all our friends : ) it was such a great experience working with you!! — Maria, Needham

Axie is just incredible! She photographed our wedding on 8/9. The pictures are SPECTACULAR! She captures all the feelings, light and depth of the moment. She is a master of her craft – artistic, stealth, meticulous, and so perceptive. We have no idea how one person captured so many perspectives of our ceremony alone! I hope we can find a great excuse to work with her again some day. —L. Schraga, San Francisco (from her review on Google Business)

Axie made the whole photo experience fun and lighthearted for me, especially with her nice selection of music and great sense of humor. I could feel she really cared about me and how I wanted these pictures to represent me. Her photography skills in lighting is remarkable and what a difference it made after seeing her retouch my photos! She brought out my professional yet also personal side in these pictures, which was perfect for what I needed! People have given me so many compliments on these photos. Thank you, Axie! Kathy Yang, Boston (from her review on Google Business)

I just wanted to let you know how AMAZING the [Bat Mitzvah] photos are and how excited we are about them. They are truly wonderful. Thank you so much for coming under these circumstances so we could record our very special day!  —MH, Needham

Axie took marvelous pictures of my two grandsons and me. She was able to engage the 3 year old and caught some wonderful expressions on the 3 month old. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time and have an enduring record of a special moment.Ros Walter, Boston (from her review on Facebook)

Amazing and highly professional photographer ! My husband and I were looking for a photographer that will help us capture the intimacy of our city hall wedding and Axie did that and more. Prior to the wedding day we met for coffee and got to know each other and she had already paid a visit to the wedding venue and had plenty of suggestions. On the wedding day, Axie was there before us and captured every special moment for us. She asked us to act natural and took pictures of us while making us very comfortable. We couldn’t have been happier with our choice and I would highly recommend Axie to any couple who wants to make their day extra special 🙂 Again, thank you Axie for everything! Amina E., Melrose (from her review on Google Business)

I love this one so much!!!  Thank you, thank you, thank you! When I was 17 my dad, who was an amateur photographer, took a wonderful black and white picture of me.  To date it’s been the best photo anyone’s ever taken of me.  I have a new favorite!  And it reminds me of him and spending time in the darkroom. Bari

The photos are wonderful! You really captured every aspect and the spirit of the event. —Kayla Hopkins, JFS of Metrowest

I LOVE these. I showed my mom yesterday. As expected… she cried. 🙂 Thank you for dealing with my awkwardness and making something I really love. —Chelsea

I just added one of the photos to my website, and realized I needed to make it bigger!  The previous picture was good, but this one feels so much more genuine.  … Your referral program sounds great.  Even without that I’m already telling everyone about you. —Ean

Oh my gosh, I love the photos!!! You really did capture the event – with individual and group photos; with scene photos – from a distance and closer up; folks talking pre and post event, all the great group photos, speaking program photos, individual photos of signs and flowers, inside photos –  the people photos are GREAT AND –  the programs, the cake, the flowers, the Anne L. Page exhibit inside – really, you caught it all! THANK YOU!!! —Fredie Kay, Founder & President, Massachusetts Women’s History Center

So many good pictures — thank you! Usually, when I look at pictures of myself, I am trying to choose among the least bad ones. These are all so good!… will certainly refer anyone who is looking for an awesome photographer to you. —Gretchen, West Roxbury

I had her do a portrait session with two friends of mine for a gift, and she was wonderful, working with all kinds of backgrounds, lighting and locations — using her gentle humor to keep everyone relaxed and spontaneous, seeking to capture special moments of joy, tenderness and beauty — she brings it all! a true professional, thoughtful, considerate, creative and responsive. You will love working with her, and treasure the photographs she creates. She is amazing! —L. Martin, Glastonbury CT

These look great, Axie! … Thanks again! …  I really appreciate you joining us! —Emilie Aries, (founder and CEO,

Thanks so much. I haven’t seen a picture of myself that I liked in ten years and 25 pounds…  —Kate

You are all really sweet! But I must give credit where it is due … this is the work of an amazingly talented photographer. If you want to look beautiful, and you live in the Boston area, run—don’t walk—to Axie Breen in Needham! –Kristin  (from Facebook)

Thanks, Axie!! You are a wizard! —Liz, Wellesley

The pictures you took at the marathon last April were outstanding. Thank you so much for chronicling our medical program with these photos. —Chris Troyanos, Boston Athletic Association
