some kind words from my amazing clients
"DRIVE AND CONFIDENCE"
"He has a super easy going nature, yet professional, a great eye for details and unique images or moments to capture, he is all for taking a risk to get the perfect shot(s) which gives you the same drive and confidence, he clearly takes pride in his photography and edits as they turn out phenomenal!"
"AMAZING EYE FOR BEAUTY & ART"
"Where do I start!? First off, you can't go wrong with a man who is so passionate about photography! He knows his stuff. He's also got an amazing eye for beauty and art. I am a part time photographer and he taught me so much about my camera and how to use my flash off camera. He is a great teacher! I also modeled for him for a portrait session. He has great attention to detail and he makes you feel 100% comfortable."
"TOP NOTCH PHOTOGRAPHER"
"My husband Robert and I couldn't have asked for a better experience, from start to finish. Shawn is a great guy and an even better photographer - I would recommend him with complete confidence to anyone who is looking for a well rounded, top notch photographer."
"A TRUE PROFESSIONAL"
"Shawn is a true professional! He was quick to respond to all of my questions and his website is awesome too. We had never had professional pictures taken of us before our wedding day but Shawn was a great guide and had us relaxed and laughing! Many guests have since remarked how well he was able to work with guests (young and old) to get our family photos taken."
"Shawn has done a couple boudoir sessions for me now, and his work is so outstanding! His images are so beautiful and always provoke such a lovely artistic mood. I always feel completely comfortable with him too, especially in an intimate setting. I would highly recommend Shawn to anyone wanting a sensual and classy shoot!"
Frequently Asked Questions
How do you know if you have found the right photographer?
First of all, the photographer's work should stand out. And secondly, and just as important, is you should like their personality. As you will be spending a lot of time with your photographer, you should be sure to have a good connection with them.
What is your turnaround time for delivering photos after a shoot?
This can vary depending on the type of shoot. For weddings I tell my clients they can expect their images to be delivered within 4-6 weeks. Though I always share a few sneak peeks with them in a day or two after the wedding.
I definitely want to do a photobook, how does that work?
I make this process as easy as possible. After the photos are delivered, you can simply select the images you want included in a photobook from your online gallery. From there I prepare an online proof (virtual copy) for you to review. At this point, you can suggest changes until you are happy with the design, before it goes off to the lab for printing. I walk my clients through the entire process, from album size, to cover options, to ensure they get the perfect album that will become a family heirloom.
I'm ready to book! What are the payment options?
When clients are ready to book (yay!), I send them a 'booking proposal'. This online form allows them to select the package/service they want, fill out an online agreement form, and then select their method of payment for the retainer fee.
For weddings, I require a 30% retainer fee to hold the date, and the remainder is due by the wedding date. For most other sessions (family portraits, headshots, etc) the retainer fee is 50%, with remainder due by the day of the session.
